Creative use of the English language ;)

I believe it should be "a prelude to all types of  compromise" ?

See http://www.tfd.com/Compromit on 'Compromit' which mentions compromise.

Quote from: 'tfd.com'
   2.   To put to hazard, by some indiscretion; to endanger; to compromise; as, to compromit the honor or the safety of a nation.

Hi DavidR and bob3160,

"Comprommital is older English and is used here: Niles' Weekly Register: Containing Political, Political ..., Volume 32
"To avoid a compromittal of our neutrality" etc. etc. meaning a violation of sorts - compromise.
Mind that I am a Dutchman, not a native speaker...

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)!

Considering that English is an additional language you seem to have mastered very well, an occasional
new word coming from you is understandable. If I were to attempt to writhe something in Dutch, I highly
doubt it would be as well constructed as your posts in English. :)
(I was just having a little fun. :) Please realize that little fact.)

Tech Support Scams And The Blue Screen of Death

Given the fact most people have their systems set to default BSOD settings where it appears and disappears in a flash, the full screen BSOD display window that does not disappear should stand out like a sore thumb.

Given the fact most people have their systems set to default BSOD settings where it appears and disappears in a flash, the full screen BSOD display window that does not disappear should stand out like a sore thumb. 

What should stand out is the support telephone number at the bottom - which most certainly isn't on genuine BSOD screens.
