Re: Tips for privacy and security

Firewall:
- Turn off unused listening servers on your machine
- Configure your daemons to be restricted to your local network or - even better - your machine, don't expose ports (by having listening servers on them). More important: refuse to use network related software unable to be configured that way. The less packages you need to filter, the less mistakes you make.
- Don't expose SSH to the WWW. Instead you should tunnel everything through - say - VPN.

Hostfile:
- Don't just put every ad-server into your host file. The bigger this file is, the slower your system might response (in a worst case scenario). Restrict your host file interaction to the targets you have identified as malicious.

Facebook:
- Don't use it. EOL

Linux in general:
- Don't trust every maintainer of a small spinn off distro with it's own repos to place malicious code in an update, so you won't... Hey, wait... what? lol

Re: Tips for privacy and security

I think the privacy search engines are supposed to be alternatives to Google though.

Re: Tips for privacy and security

Sorry that would be me. Once I remembered I was mod, I figured it was easier to edit the post myself rather than making numerous posts with links tongue
