X-No-Archive: Yes\n\nIs it true that if you have a decent firewall, theoretically nobody can hack\ninto a pc. If that's true, does that mean all those well known organisation\nthat had their site hacker have shity firewall?\n\nAlso, someone method GATOR to me, what is it? What I have been told is:\n\n"Gator is pretty much Spy ware & are files that are installed on your\ncomputer without your knowledge. They allow companies to Monitor your\nInternet browsing patterns and even allow them to inundate you with those\nannoying "pop up" ads! If after you've downloaded music, shareware or files\nfrom the net, you start getting Pop-ups on your screen, you've likely been\ninfected with Spyware and/or Adware. One of the worst things about Gator is\nthat they had this piece of software that stored all your passwords etc to\nsecure sites and every time you logged on it sent information to the gator\nwebsite about where you've been etc and possibly what passwords you have\nused. If you install something like adsgone then that'll stop banner ads\nfrom popping up."\n\nTIA.
