I wonder if this is even possible. A light signature based antivirus + anti-exe + OsArmor. What are the risks that we still have while using this combination? Is there any reason why someone should choose a linux distro to make his/her computer more secure?
Long story :)
PC of older family member died (it looked like a dust burn). Their son asked me whether I could arrange a PC for them temporarely, because he would give his son a new gaming PC. So I put their harddisk in my desktop (Dual Core Pentium G3240 with Samsung 850 SSD), removed my HDD...
Hi, All! Someone in the open-source community told me about this device and gave me the links so I thought I'd share it for those who aren't already aware of it.

Looking to edit/create plugins for Ettercap 0.8.2, but I can't seem to figure out how to accomplish this. More specifically, I want to edit the DoS plugin so I can test a variation of attacks on a closed environment so I can create mitigation techniques. Unfortunately, I'm pretty new to...
I've seen a few times where Chrome OS is pushed in certain topics, but there's no justified reasons as to why it's better than Windows 10, other than it's less at risk to malware X or vulnerability Y.
To those who promote Chrome OS, do you use it as your daily driver?
What are the other...

All these Linux Christmas wallpapers are created by Mark Riedesel and you can find plenty of other artwork on his website.
He has been making such wallpapers almost every year since 2002. Quite understandably some of the earliest wallpapers don’t have modern aspect ratio. I have put them up in...

I have been thinking about getting a small lightweight laptop that is cloud based. However, I don't like the spying and censorship of Google. I have looked at Cub Linux, but the website seems to be inactive and unavailable. If Cub Linux doesn't come back, what alternatives are there for ChromeOS?

At first, I wanted to switch to Linux entirely. But after my research, gaming on linux just wont work for me. Many of the games I normally play on PC either are not available on Linux, or don't work anywhere near as well. I decided to use Ubuntu as my main OS, but for whenever I want to game, I...
About six or seven years ago I discovered Linux, :cool: with it, I come and go for seasons, delusion and disappointment for days. However, for my Windows has been like a wife that I have occasionally cheated with Linux, a fresher, more smiling and demanding woman, but a really nice company. ;)...
I am using GUFW, but when I check the status on ufw in the terminal, it says it is active and it is denying incoming, allowing outgoing. So far so good. However, right after that, it says "disabled (routed)".
What does that mean?
Thanks in advance.
I am looking to switch to Ubuntu, and one of my concerns is security. I know Ubuntu itself is secure, and I've seen videos on how to use GUFW, AppArmor, and Firejail. However, I want a scanner for peace of mind, and because I'm kinda paranoid.
It has come down to two antivirus options. Since I...
I will be using Ubuntu in a VM till I learn the basics. When I get the hang of it, I think I'm going to make the switch. I am aware about the UFW and GUFW, but what else can I implement?
What is the best scanner? Sophos, Clam, ESET?
And what 0 day protection can I use?
Thanks in advance.
