| Actually, the best protection you have is to obtain your software from

Agree.

| 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;

As I'm gathering.  (Problems with 52 *AUTL?!?)

| it will only
| guarantee that there's an awful lot of really good software you'll never
| be able to install.

Money, or lack thereof, takes care of that already.

| 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.

There seem to be a LOT of 400 vendors/suppliers of what-all that take a LOT
of pride in what they do/say.

| 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.

Likewise.  Don't know that I can maintain that attitude forever,
necessarily.
