No big deal. You can defeat Kaspersky's ATM antivirus with a really fat executable

Re: If it's too hard, why bother?

I used to regularly have to explain the facts of life to database programmers who coded "check error return status and plough on regardless" every furging time.

Got to the point that when programmers turned up claiming a database issue I would offer to give them ten dollars if that turned out to be the case, and if they agreed to pay me one dollar for every code logic error I could spot in their blither. Not one taker, usually because I'd glance at page one and say "you should know you are already three bux in the hole" or somesuch.
