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.

I disagree.

I truly believe what I say and it's as simple as that. Security (for home) is no biggie. In fact, it's boring.

Windows OS is neither the disaster nor the blessing that you might read about here and there. If you pay attention, most boxes were compromised by: no patches and ancient vulnerabilities, deliberate execution of code, user mistakes, not any special inherent flaws in the design.
