comment How difficult is the USB firmware attack?
You are talking about attacking an USB device. I am talking about attacking a computer given any USB device you like. You say for a "once an attack has been developed for a particular device ... it is very easy for script kiddies to deploy it". Well, that is exactly my question: Is there a public available attack that can easily deployed by script kiddies?

Question is "How difficult is the USB firmware attack?". You can choose a firmware if you need/like too. In the end it just needs to be a USB Stick that emulates a keyboard. You don't even need to explain how to do it if that goes to far. Just tell me how difficult it is and why.

comment Are antiviruses still useful?
I think UNIX systems do have bugs, too. Also they often run cross compiled software where Linux and Windows Versions do have the same bugs. Sure, with UNIX you are less of a target.

comment Intrusion Detected - OS Attack
@SteveDL I guess there are different opinions about that. I personal prefer to be not informed about all the botnets that are constantly trying to attack everything. Otherwise I would probably be clicking away warning all day long. But depending on what you are protecting you might need to get into this trouble.

comment Intrusion Detected - OS Attack
@toffee.beanns netstat is a command line tool that shows your network connection. Run WIN+R > cmd ENTER > netstat. If the Symantec alert pops up it could show you how you are connect to this address. If you like to go deeper you could use wireshark.org to analyse the attack yourself but that is really deep shit. I guess if you just ignore this alert you are fine.

comment Intrusion Detected - OS Attack
@toffee.beanns strange. Maybe it is just a false positive. Sounds like Symantec is analyzing traffic with pattern detection. You could run netstat or a packet sniffer yourself and check if you are connect to this IP in any way. Possible your putty connection creates a packet that looks fishy to Symantec.
