ubuntu security(13 posts)
ya i know what you mean and takes them forever to reply too lol but if you are willing to wait then they usually give pretty good advise :) but i would think that is has enough security just look for the https and the lock icon on the site before you start to put things in
well .. my bet is for ubuntu .. if you are having same stuffs .. e.g. like you said , firefox and a router and other standard things ... then i bet windows will not be as safer linux is .... and as far as that lock is sign is concern ... i guess , recently they have found that this SSL can be impersonate too !!! .... or its insecure , if your DNS is poisoned !!! .. ahh .. there are lots of possibilities .....
but as far as OS is concern ... linux is more safe for sure ... well , in one line i can say is , in Linux you can't execute anything ( like virus or spyware or anything ) without admin. password .. so nothing gets done automatically ( if you are dumb enough to enter your password here and there , then no one can save your *%& ) ... right ??
so don't worry .... and use linux with peace of mind ... :)
P.S. .. linux is so secured that it doesn't require any firewall if its a standalone system .... neither need any AVs .... and ya... ubuntu forums is good place , if you love ubuntu ...
haha i love ubuntu too it is my main os now that i have really got into it but sometimes like at the moment i have to use vista cuz my network is down and i have to connect to the internet through my laptop which i can't get on in ubuntu as stated here: http://www.howtogeek.com/forum.....replies=12
if i could get wireless and an equivalent to windows media center i would more than likely switch over permanently. so far everything i've looked for i've found, except some of the graphics. i gave ubuntu 25 gigs of space, so far i've only used 10 with everything i've added. some can also be removed because i was just checking it out.
i did follow your thread hoping someone had an answer.
