In the open and sharing spirit of FOSS I offer a heads up to a well 
written item which looks like it needs some actions in response.
There may be some nice debate about a definition here or there, but 
the real world is in this article as far as I can see.

I trust it will not be long before I can feel just a little safer? 
comments welcomed.

I should say that if you have seen other items and comments about 
'linux viruses' then what you read is probably still true, in a strict 
sense. However, I cannot fault the information given in this item, and 
it does seem that some action can be sensibly taken by both the gnome 
and kde teams.

(and well done, the thunar project!!)
