    I'm really fussy about security right now so no. I know that there have been attempts to hack into the networks I manage, but kept them out (so far).

    My computer was infected with various spyware when we first connected to the Internet. We were quite naive, when thought that windows firewall and a lightweight antivirus software will be enough. Nowadays I have a very strong defending system, at least I hope so...
    Relating my sites.. yes, my directory was haced with sql injection method. Unfortunately the new of the vulnerabilty arrived to me a little bit to late so my site become a playground for script kiddies for one day..

    Nope. I did have a bit of spyware and other crap on my home PC yeaaars ago when browsers didn't protect against that sorta stuff and I'd download and run executables. These days I never have a problem at all, ever. Obviously a hardware firewall in place but am yet to find the need for antivirus or software firewall on my home computer for a good 7-8 years. Obviously servers are a complete different matter, rootkit checks, firewalls, manual checks, good monitoring.

    I had a small site selling Books hacked with Crap last year showing the Turkish flag and a load of Political rubbish on,the site was down for nearly 4 days while we transfered it and that so far is the only problem we have had.

    I get loads of crap landing in my PC, I just wipe and reload once a month.
    I did have a website destroyed a few years back when I was with a less than perfect hosting company.

    That was bad, that is way i never click anything coming from a strange site whom i don't know. Now a days there are so many advertisement that will pop ups in your monitor while surfing the net. Don't let them do what they want just to have a force client or visitor for their site. I have a friend she encounter a pop up that's telling her to click a particular button to have a free gift from them if she join but then she got a virus from it and not a gift.

    No, I think a good anti-virus tool plus timely updates of your system would be enough for security. :)

    Sometimes your anti-virus thing don't do anything when it comes to that specially if you are already hacked by those hacker whom you don't know. Sometimes its not just a virus for your system but a virus for your hard drives.
