For TechSpot to be able to provide its excellent service to members, they often have to post large log files of scans, e.g. by HijackThis and other tools. Such files contain a lot of info on the member’s system, including what seems sensitive info, e.g. his defenses, patches applied (or missing), program versions (which may have security holes), possible backdoors, etc. My question is: Can somebody with malicious intentions use this info for targeting and gaining easier access to the member’s system? @ Mods If you consider that this post might give ideas to the wrong people, please delete it, though I am sure they must have had such ideas long ago.
