Re: Maybe that POS ClamAV isn't so bad.

How do you know your compiler isn't inserting "phone home" code into certain things when it compiles them?

You know because you've got a proper firewall running on an obsolete PC (or cheap SBC) that logs and traceroutes every outbound connection from anything on the network and, if necessary, enforces a whitelist. This has the added advantage of also keeping a lid on GSnooping, MSFT telemetry and providing defence in depth against online adverts.
