Yes. Unless you think they are up to installing s3kr3t rootkits.

The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a rootkit is a good guy with a rootkit. Sure, I’ll open up my computer to software from a spy agency.

ETA: Huh.

On the one hand, open sourcing Assemblyline’s code is a savvy act of public relations, and Jones readily admits the agency is trying to shed its “super secret spy agency” reputation in the interest of greater transparency.

Okay, maybe I will.

What does matter, truly? Do you engage in computing practices that are likely to expose your computer to malware? If so, do you have some reason to be dissatisfied with your existing anti-malware tools?

By the way, do people still bother with HijackThis? Seems that was the standard for a long time, but I haven’t heard anyone mention it for a long time.
