Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

I've seen some T.W.A.T.s out and about and they are blatantly disobeying the rules of being a T.W.A.T. and not having the Sticker/Label affixed to their clothing.
