Sounds like you have limited experience with doz "security". Malware that
targets its security flaws is extraordinarily easy to acquire in doz, and
difficult to eradicate, short of reinstalling the whole OS and apps. It's
even possible (easy, so I hear) to acquire malware in the interval between
installation and completion of installing security updates online from M$.
