Rootkits are often damaging and have gained notoriety as a form of malware—software designed to destroy data, steal information, or aggravate the user.

By the time he reached adulthood, the renowned violinist had also earned a reputation as a shameless womanizer and inveterate gambler. The latter vice once even cost him his prized violin. Nevertheless, he had a profound influence on the evolution of violin technique. Why did the Catholic Church deny him burial in consecrated ground for years following his death? More... Discuss
