Which happens a lot on some systems. Download some tools, compile them, put them in your ~/bin/ because you dont have root access. Or if your OS follows the Mac paradigm for installing software.. it is installed in your tree etc. Now you may not hurt someone else.. but these days viruses really arent into breaking systems unless you are being ransomed. The real money is getting all those .doc/.swx /.abi documents and everything in ~/.gnucash to your friendly neighborhood extortionist.
