Re: The Essence of Computer security

Of course, then there's this ... Dear Receiver: You have just received an Irish virus. Since we are not so technologically advanced in Ireland, this is a MANUAL virus. Please delete all the files on your hard disk, and then send this email to everyone you know. That’d be grand. Thanks! :lol: :lol: ...

Re: How many years have you used Linux Mint ?

Started with Mint 8 in December 2009. I've used every version since then, including LMDE.

Re: LM Update Manager could check for Internet

It's already been done in the past. Update Manager would ping Google to check for internet connection. Unfortunately, there was a big unjustified uproar about Mint having "spyware" because of it.

Re: Mint or Ubuntu

Welcome to Linux Mint. Unless you have set up the usb for persistence you won't be able to save changes or downloaded file. Once installed on metal it will work fine.

DistroWatch

Glancing through I didn't see any posts regarding this, but it appears DistroWatch may have been the latest attack victim? The site has been down for a while now. I don't recall any warning about site maintenance. I hope they are OK.

Re: Has anyone got a virus by using wine

In all fairness in giving an answer to the question: I have been using wine for 6 years running both the PokerStars software and the Windows version of Firefox and have never contracted a virus.

Yet Another Excellent Mint 17.3 Xfce Review

Dedoimedo just today posted a new review of 17.3 Xfce. Since he is known for calling it as he sees it, and is very stingy about giving 10/10 ratings, we should be very proud of Clem and the team.

Re: Firewall

All you need to do is open a Terminal and type:

Code: Select all

sudo ufw enable
Enter your password when it asks for it, and you will then see that it tells you that the firewall is enabled and will automatically start on each new startup.

Welcome to the Linux Mint community GreyGeek. I think I remember seeing you on the Kubuntu Forums a couple years back when I was trying it out for a bit. Glad to have you here.
