=======================================================================1) Word From Secunia:

If you have secured your Windows, what about your doors?

Vulnerabilities do not only exist in MS based systems!

The majority of "break-ins" are occurring through 3rd party
applications such as, Adobe reader, Adobe flash player, plugins and
browsers.

Are you sure all your systems are updated? And if they are, how will
you be able to verify it?
