Actually, the best protection you have is to obtain your software from
trusted sources. Refusing, even when given good reason, to even
temporarily lower your QRSTFRCCVN below, say, 5, will not guarantee you
that nobody will be able to sneak malware onto your AS/400; it will only
guarantee that there's an awful lot of really good software you'll never
be able to install.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: QuestView's compatibility
with every release of OS/400 from V2R3 through V5R3, and its ability to
take advantage of the more advanced releases, while degrading gracefully
when run on a system that can't provide all the services it uses, is a
matter of pride for us.

Personally, I've never once patched a *PGM to system state; I've chosen
to keep myself ignorant of anything beyond the most basic theory of how
it's done, because I'm not in the business of circumventing security.
