What malware do you hate the most? The one my family downloads and I have to remove.
Favorite activities: Freeride snowboarding, meeting new people, reading and, as boring as it sounds, traveling.
Golden rule for cyberspace? Backup, update and never go on a clicking spree.
When did you get your first computer and what kind was it? I think it was in 1994 – 286 with MS-DOS preinstalled. There was no monitor available, so we could only use it when nobody was watching the TV.
Favorite computer game / activity: Classics such as Counter-Strike or the Call of Duty series. But what I do most on my computer is browse the web looking for interesting stuff.
