Don't follow that model, it's broken security wise, unless you keep your
machine disconnected from the network.
In the end if you are going to keep your machine secure et all you have
to keep it disconnected there will always be bugs which can be exploited
when you are network connected ;)
I personally think people should start worrying more about application
they install on their mobile devices ( which they more often then not
grant access to privacy information themselves ) or information they
expose themselves on various social network sites willingly, unaware of
the consequences it might have then having their OS cracked.
If I was a crook I would simply use various online tracking sites or
social networking sites to monitor whether you are home or not and
simply rob you when your post on your status that you have gone on
holidays next to the picture of your house tagged with the geographical
coordinates to it or when an app places you on Starbucks.
Or I would collect all those idiotic question people have to provide
answer on various online sites including banks cross reference them to
you social network pages and your posts, then simply call your bank,
provide answer to those questions and wipe your account clean.
Much more simpler, probably pays better of in the end and harder to
track down compared to cracking your laptop OS or explode a bug which
requires you to be a skilled programmer or cryptography engineer to pull
Seriously why bother cracking people OS to get to this information when
it gets handed to you on silver platter by the individuals themselves
