Re: freebsd - Re: recommended Virus Scanner?

Hey, the Debian folks themselves say there is the possibility of an 
unknown root exploit in the wild.

I have this belief that for any arbitrary large block of code, the # of 
undiscovered root exploits to be very large (I actually beleve the # to 
be limitless -- humans are infinitely clever).

The code review process will catch them as they are discovered, but 
*will not* catch them preemptively.  I don't believe in "verifably 
correct code."

Humans are just too damn evil.  But I am playing a bit of chicken little 
here.  It's just intution.
