    how about some security tips?

    i am running kubuntu 11.10 (liked ubuntu until unity). i had some issues with ff8 so i rolled back to ff7.0.1. extracted the tarball to my home directory and run it right from the extracted file without installing it in kde. lots of apps like ghostery wouldn't work on ff8 and i had some weird java issues.

    i use no script, ghostery, https everywhere, cookie monster, better privacy and run a proxy from a list i found. i was using some of the proxy add ons on ff's add on page and most of them were crap. transparent proxies, slow as hell, disconnection.

    are there any good proxy lists out there? any other good add ons? anyone know anything about kernel hardening? i've messed around with tor but it is slow and i don't really troll deepnet much or do anything else that i would need it for but some tips for other noobs would be cool.

    i installed rkhunter and have run it a few times but i don't have it configured right cuz it doesn't save a log file for me. does anyone know how to check for and get rid of a keylogger on kubuntu?

    any help would be appreciated by myself and the other noobs who are trying to lrn2intrnt. thanx.

    ps. i did find some other security threads on this site but most were a couple years old.

  6. NoScript and Better Privacy are indeed must haves for any FF user, imo. And if you're not using Firefox, you should! I have not tried the others you listed, OP. I guess I should check them out.

    Good idea for a thread.

  9. Hi,
    I followed the black hat style guide step by step till 16# where your supposed to make your linux connect to your firewall in virtual machine. When I type in the suggested command"ssh -N -L 9050: root@" it returns ": connect to host port 22: network is unreachable what is this".
    Im a total noob with hacking and I dont have a clue about Linux. Can somone please help me to figure this one out?

    thx a lot

    Sure, I'd be happy to start a new thread on security.
    Here are some tips to help improve the security of your online presence:
    Use strong passwords: Use long, complex passwords with a mix of letters, numbers, and symbols, and avoid using the same password across multiple accounts.
    Enable two-factor authentication: Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security by requiring a secondary code to log in.
    Keep software up to date: Keep your software, including your operating system and antivirus software, up to date to ensure you have the latest security patches.
    Use HTTPS and SSL certificates: Use HTTPS and SSL certificates to encrypt data transmitted between your website and users' devices.
    Regularly back up data: Regularly back up your data to prevent loss in case of a security breach or other unexpected event.
    Use a firewall: Use a firewall to prevent unauthorized access to your network and devices.
    Be cautious with email attachments: Be cautious when opening email attachments, as they may contain malware or other security threats.
    Train employees on security best practices: Educate your employees on security best practices to help prevent accidental security breaches.
    Use a virtual private network (VPN): Use a VPN to encrypt your internet connection and protect your online activity.
    Regularly monitor and audit security: Regularly monitor and audit your security measures to identify and address any vulnerabilities or potential threats.
    Remember, no security measure is foolproof, but implementing these best practices can significantly reduce the risk of a security breach.
