Why is it so hard for people to learn security by user education only works _AFTER_ the fact?
Just go to a linux noobs IRC channel and look how people swap scripts and run them without any care.
Mostly they are using their own PCs, so no chance of having an admin to correct their's mistakes.
If they get rooted, as with any window machine in a botnet, they will do as much damage to all of us as any other in the botnet.
