[TGDaily] Microsoft wants 'sick' PCs banned from the internet - Page 2

post #11 of 233
It would keep all the old viruses at bay. But not necessarily new ones.

(Relative to the time we are talking about, not relative to now.)

Get tested today for only $213.

And it's going to be about as effective as an A+ certificate.

How could anyone feasibly implement this? How would this be maintained? Who would manage it?

I'm unconvinced.

this is stupid on so many levels.

viruses appear left and right, people are always finding exploits in OS's and user stupidity. Bring that pc back home for one day and that "health certificate" is good as done.

M$ more or less said get a Mac.
Or maybe they want more people using macs so people will start writing more viruses for macs (God knows how exploitable a unix based system with even more tech illiterate people can be). Macs will lose their "safe and secure image" and thus even the playing field in the long run.

genus.

Alright this is going to be a big f-ing problem people....

Listen. This is a good idea, that SHOULD NOT go through, even right now I can think of multiple ways to abuse this.

---
Send a file to a computer to make the install directory named a virus, and BAM! that person cannot access the internet.

How the hell is someone going to get virus protection... IF THEY CANNOT ACCESS THE INTERNET.

Not to mention 80% of all keygens, or pirated material is considered a virus by anti-virus.

This is ridiculous and nothing short of facism.

This computer is pure, it can go on the internet.

This one is bad....block it.

---

This is completely idiotic, this does not make the internet more safe... all they want to do is to stop ddos, and widespread viruses.

I don't know but if this goes through, I will have to wait for someone to find a work around.

Maybe I misunderstood, but it looks like so much bad can come from this.

LOL @ THE GUY WHO SAID "GENUS"....ITS GENIUS...

Some of you guys really, really scare me. This is nothing more than a ploy to make Microsoft more money. Apple's really getting to them in a big way.
