I'm not sure whether you're more ignorant or arrogant, but you're plenty of both.

A lot of malware doesn't utilize any exploit at all, but relies on user error to run or to gain elevated privileges. The reason there's comparatively little malware in the wild for Unix-like systems is that they have so little marketshare outside of servers and embedded systems that it's not worth the time for most malware writers. Besides, there are plenty of insecure Unix-like systems connected to the internet that nobody bothers to exploit.

Whether you care about Windows or not, it's a relevant /tech/ topic, because most of the world is still using Windows on the desktop and laptops. Health care and financial systems are being threatened by malware. Your attitude is essentially "I'm going to whine and make my displeasure known when someone posts about something I don't like!" It's childish.

You're also a fucking idiot, since you apparently can't see that although this particular article deals with PE binaries on Windows platforms, the machine learning techniques they discuss could be extrapolated to create automated detection methods for malicious software on other platforms, as well.

PDF is an open format. There's no need for you to download the article, because you're not bright enough to understand it anyway, so don't worry about it. I don't really give a fuck what your preferences are, just like I don't care about your laughable, idiosyncratic little opinions.

In summary, fuck you.
