Privacy, Security, Encryption I've bored the readers of my personal website to death with two rather prosaic articles debating the Linux security model, in direct relation to Windows and associated claims of wondrous infections and lacks thereof. However, I haven't yet discussed even a single program that you can use on your Linux machine to gauge your security. For my inaugural article for OSNews, I'll leave the conceptual stuff behind, and focus on specific vectors of security, within the world of reason and moderation that I've created and show you how you can bolster a healthy strategy with some tactical polish, namely software.

GUFW is a GUI for UFW, where UFW means "Uncomplicated FireWall" (formerly "Ubuntu FireWall"), so the programmer only added the G part.

The programmer is spanish, and his english isn't very good, so instead of bullying him, you should be thanking the extra work to translate into english so you can use it, or make your own program and try to do a better work.
