if i empty the recycle bin will it be permanently deleted? i wanted to do my online banking and personal finance type things on ubuntu and just in case it gets hacked i don't want everything out there.
i hooked up a linksys internal antenna and was highly impressed by ubuntu picking up my signal. im almost ready to ditch windows soon...
If you empty the recycle bin those files will be deleted, of course... but if you want "secure" deletion I think there are utilities for that for linux.
Your best bet is to create a TrueCrypt folder and store your Firefox password as well as personal finance information inside of that.
i was hoping trucrypt would work on it. what browser offers the best security on linux? what, if any, security should i add or practice?
also, i have a dell 1505 notebook. i installed ubuntu on and spent the last 4 hours trying to get dells wireless to work. just when i was about to reinstall windows i found ndiswrapper in synaptics manager. instantly it picked up my network. now i have a wireless desktop (i built) and my notebook. i'm really thinking i'm something about now...
i ask the same things on ubuntu forums but it takes hours if not a few days to get a answer. i'm starting to feel like "thethinghatwouldn'tleave" now.
I think that if you just stick with ff you should be fine and I think that you could setup a firewall just for extra protection and ubuntu seems more secure than windows out of the box. Also just use the same amount of caution that you normally would when working with sensetive data
