Rootkits

If your computer has ever had a virus, you might have encountered a rootkit—a Trojan that keeps itself, other files, registry keys, and network connections hidden from detection.

Rootkits are often damaging and have gained notoriety as a form of malware—software designed to destroy data, steal information, or aggravate the user.

Niccolò Paganini (1782)

An Italian violinist and composer whose virtuosity is the stuff of legend, Paganini was playing with an orchestra by the age of nine. By the time he reached adulthood, the renowned violinist had also earned a reputation as a shameless womanizer and inveterate gambler. The latter vice once even cost him his prized violin. Nevertheless, he had a profound influence on the evolution of violin technique. Why did the Catholic Church deny him burial in consecrated ground for years following his death? More... Discuss
