    hi all;

    Why is computer security so easy to bypass.
    In Xp you can lock your files and folders from other users so they cant view them but if you attached the hard drive with xp on it to a vista pc or laptop vista will bypass xp,s security and let you view all files.

    Why is is so easy to bypass vista passwords too And why is it that you can use a usb device to take controll and get sensative data from pcs and laptops.

    I have always learnt how to bypass security by any means.
    Even the secure pc can be breeched so why is pc security so weak?.

    xp & vista are very weak and most of the population use windows even with the security packs installed and the latest updates installed a pc can still be breeched.

    I do not think anyone who owns a pc would be safe security wise so why do people even bother with security programs most of them cant detect newly programed code and by the time they do its too late.

    Regards

    it depends on person to person and system to system...

    Tech geeks would have their system well maintained ..so it would be difficult to breach it..

    on the other hand majority of users are novice...they are not well aware of such breaches...why and How they cause harm?

    Yes, there are simple rules to observe in order to protect your system - do not visit insecure web pages, download only reliable software from well-known web pages. Use an effective and legal AV program and scan your system for viruses on a regular basis. This increases the security.
