Great Argument, btw. Oh, I got an Airbag on my car, get rid of the
brakes please. I don't need them anymore.
The ONLY reason why Linux based systems hasn't got such a problem with
malware is that there are not enough Desktop machines to make this a
good target. Often enough there are security holes which allow you to
take control over the entire machine. And that's fine as it is complex
But if you can easily add some more security layers without loosing too
much performance and/or usability you should always do that.
Storing unhashed and unsalted or unencrypted passwords is simply stupid.
Ask the guys at last.fm. ;)
