"It was simply a matter of time before Linux became my
primary operating system. My most recent malware incident was the
final straw that sent me into welcoming and safe haven of Ubuntu.
"Suffice it to say that last week was a pretty crappy one for
me. My FaceBook account was somehow compromised, causing untold
amounts of my friends to receive a spammed invite to some sort of
diet seminar scam event and then having to endure the embarrassment
that accompanied it.
"The compromise itself was easily rectified, I had to reset all
of my core passwords — FaceBook, GMail, blogs, et cetera.
Then I proceeded to sweep malware from my various Windows systems
in my house — my primary Windows 7 testing workstation, my
wife's Windows 7 office PC, my Windows XP virtual machines, and our
shared recreational Windows 7 laptop."
