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.

7. Linux users are more skillfull.

True, I suppose.


This is no longer true. The stated goal of Ubuntu is to build a consumer distribution, and it is being sold by Linux zealots that non-skilled users are safe using it.

This has opened a wide vector for attack.
