No, you have to be at 10, the highest quality to avoid watermarking. Setting quality to 9 (and presumably lower, but that's not indicated in the post) enables watermarking. What's important is what the default is, which I haven't seen mentioned anywhere.

Comment Re:Comparing total memory usage is stupid (Score 1) 258 258

If all you're running is one application, then you don't need a desktop. If you're multitasking, then of course you want your desktop to be fast, it should be up there in priority at all times. So caching stuff for the desktop is a good idea. Besides, it takes way longer to load stuff from the hard drive than to free some memory so an application can allocate some for its own use.

New Malware Overwrites Software Updaters 78 78

itwbennett writes "Researchers at Bach Khoa Internetwork Security (BKIS), a Vietnamese security company, have found a new type of malware that 'masks itself as an updater for Adobe Systems' products and other software such as Java,' wrote BKIS analyst Nguyen Cong Cuong in a post on the company's blog. BKIS showed screenshots of a variant of the malware that imitates Adobe Reader version 9 and overwrites the AdobeUpdater.exe, which regularly checks in with Adobe to see if a new version of the software is available."
