    Wink How do we prevent viruses from accessing ROOT inside our bodies?

    Ok, a new release of my OS will be out soon: madjr v29.0 (my age)

    While is not linux based, is still open source (i think )

    Anyway, i want to add extra security to it.

    How do i separate user from ROOT?

    right now am running in ROOT and am a little scare. I do have a good antivirus, but i dont think is good enough protection, so am not sure how to do this, thanks

    I equate root access with having the ability to enter cell walls & operate freely within.

    Virii has such root access, whereas bacteria do not. However, root access isn't necessary condition for deadliness.

    Awhile open source, humanOS isn't very well documented and we don't really understand the language it's written in very well. Currently we don't have the proper expertise to rewrite humanOS to seperate root and user access. Until this issue can be rectified make certain you put the system into sleep mode on a frequent basis, update your virus definitions (vaccinations), and use apps like jog or hike on a frequent basis.
    Do not be afraid to joust a giant just because some people insist on believing in windmills.

    I've found that outside of rare exceptions it's best to avoid allowing physicians access to humanOS. They seem entirely to anxious to "treat" and have no inclination to "cure".

    Any form of medicinal input is best avoided also, again with rare exceptions.

    That will be tough. Human source is tangled spaghetti code.
