Hi again guys this time I have a question about computer security that's related to my programming hobby. I hope this isn't against the rules. I am asking this out of curiosity and concern, not because I want to do evil. However thanks to some knowledge I gained from a few friends of mine I know a little bit about how viruses are made, how they do what they do, and I don't have any intention to write malware. However what I am wondering about is if I do not include protections in my software hobby against things that can allow malicious software to execute its code when I run my program or have it sitting on my hard drive, am I opening myself up to potential security threats? What if my computer already has some form of malware?
My guess is that I am making things waaayy too easy for them but again I don't exactly know.
