Re: Tips for privacy and security

now, truth be told, I'm a noob (but learning quickly I hope) so what do the rest of you think of this? Like I said it does seem to work quite well but I was wondering if any of you could help me understand what it does in a more specific sense.....

Re: Tips for privacy and security

I tried that a few months ago, but found out that flash's log file is also redirected towards /dev/null, which is not good if you get a bug, and want to solve it. I prefer letting a firefox addon to the job of deleting the flash cookies.

Re: Tips for privacy and security

also, I think I do understand now exactly what the command is doing (see I learn tongue)........I'm just trying to think of all the possible unwanted consequences.

btw, I'd like to add that these forums really are very friendly and helpful, so thank you.

Re: Tips for privacy and security

Personally, I use BetterPrivacy and have it set to delete all flash cookies when the browser shuts down. It adds two seconds to the browsers shutdown time, but imho it's the better solution.

Re: Tips for privacy and security

ok I see what you are saying. I do have BetterPrivacy running (disabling Dom storage and ping tracking in about:config doesn't seem to work for some reason? am I missing something?).
I suppose I had preferred the dev/null method because it seemed better not to have them saved in the first place, rather than deleted after the fact.....

Re: Tips for privacy and security

Also appreciate the post, have to have noscript and installed/used better privacy. Cleared some flash cookies. Then thought hey head on ova to #! central and do a search for it after the fact. See what the knowledgeable CB community thinks of it. My paranoia level must be getting the better of me, first ufw, now this thing. Used it and disabled it, shrugs.

The whole app armor thing, am not that paranoid ... YET. D:

If I have to do all that and have 2,402 sec apps running at all times. May as well just use windows. big_smile Sheesh I don't even have an updated anti-vir running on XP at all times, slows things down too much to bother with as long as someone isn't tarded. Have never had a IT Sec incident that wasn't self inflicted by going out of my way to do dumb stuff, more shrugs and knew better.

For the record if you have an ISP, they can track every packet sent/received by your box. Unless you're piggy backing on some hotspot, using signal boosters and relaying it here, there, everywhere. Always amuses me when people think they really have much privacy in the information age. But whatever makes folks feel better I guess. big_smile

Re: Tips for privacy and security

Thanks for the clarification Awebb. What I don't know about tech and comps could fill the library of congress ... twice. Not even sure why I installed ufw. Must be all the years of using windows and figured maybe better safe than sorry. Great, they came out with evercookies now ? ... Ahhh crap, what else is floating around the web nobody has even heard of <squints eyes and looks around suspiciously>

Is a lil worrisome though, am more or less the only one who uses #! on this old box and there was a nice lil pile of LSO's already on it. It's not even a 2 month old install. I don't even want to think how many must be over in XPland ... sighs. Not that I'm helping the situation. Sometimes I like to search for trigger words ... Like how to build a homemade nuclear bomb. Just to set some lights off in a homeland sec computer somewhere. I should probably stop such nonsense. Before guys in dark suits show up and kick ma azz.

Re: Tips for privacy and security

I'm joking about it and don't really take it all that hard. But for real, wasn't really kidding. Yep good ole land of the free here. Don't think many people understand just how far things have gone with tech in terms of people in high places being able to watch their every digital move. Carnivore/FBI email sniffer ... that does screen emails for triggers, cell phone convo's ... Digital transmissions of any kind. Friggin president got caught doing warrantless roving wiretaps ... and that's small potatoes compared to what many others have been outright caught red handed doing. But yes if ya make it a habit of saying, emailing, searching for etc. Things that are on the politically disapproved list. Odds are somewhere, something took notice. I don't really care if they know I like midget p0rn or not though. lol

Mentioned above, people get all uptight about their online privacy and people tracking them. What do ya think your ISP is doing ? lol ... They probably have a record of every pixel that's come and gone over peoples net connection. I still try to get rid of these dreaded evercookies, cause it probably degrades performance. Invasion of privacy, I don't have much say in that. But I shall not stand for something eating up my precious ram and cpu cycles if I can help it !!!!

*Runs around screaming supercookies ... Argghhhhhh. wink

Re: Tips for privacy and security

RSA got hacked recently. Everyone should check whether he uses a service connected to RSA and look into respective countermeasures.

Re: Tips for privacy and security

I dont know if this is the correct thread and all but found some rather spooky stuff with chromium inspiring full body aluminum foil suites.

I was looking around a few days ago "this is probably nothing new" trying to find various FOD to add to a cleanup system script and found the following.

anyway looks like even in "in-cognito" mode. chrome permanently  stores crap in the following folders.

~/.cache/chromium/Default/Cache/*
~/.cache/chromium/Default/Media Cache/

little more digging around in the home folder looks like adobe Macromedia dumps stuff in

~/.macromedia/Flash_Player/macromedia.com/support/flashplayer/sys
~/.macromedia/Flash_Player/#SharedObjects/

you know basic common sense areas that can easily reach several hundreds of wasted space after a few months of heavy browsing...

Any incite on this or other additional paths to clutter dumps i might want to trash once a week by manual script or possibly if i can figure the wonders of crontab/task  add to a simple script?
