Do your computers worry you? Are you scared of shopping online, or using your credit card for purchases

According to the BBC you should be:

Security experts are warning about a stealthy Windows virus that steals login details for online bank accounts.

In the last month, the malicious program has racked up about 5,000 victims – most of whom are in Europe.

Many are falling victim via booby-trapped websites that use vulnerabilities in Microsoft’s browser to install the attack code.

Experts say the virus is dangerous because it buries itself deep inside Windows to avoid detection.?

Computers running Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000 that are not fully patched are all vulnerable to the virus.

Time to change!

Migrate your PC to Linux, get all the stability and security that is inherent in Linux systems without the hassle of Microsoft bugs or Windows-based viruses.

See Desktop Linux, Ubuntu’s migration assistantor some slightly more technical guides to migration, there’s plenty of help out there.
