How to keep our systems safe?

Postby pcfan5 » Sun Feb 10, 2019 4:20 pm

I guess this is the most frequently question, ever made. I have been reading this topic "New linux Malware on the Block!" and the only antivirus I have in my computer is ClamAV, Y must confess I am not on Zorin now , I am under Linux Mint (based in ubuntu) for a while since my Desktop computer (the one I used with Zorin ) is put for sale..
Do I need to install a malware blocker? A long time ago a user recomend me "linix" . I'll wait for your suggestions.

Taken from the link provideed in the mentioned post

they said: "the important thing is to only install packages from the repos, set SELinux to enforcing if you run a server and use looong passwords. "

ClamAV is antivirus. For malware or potential changes to the system is rkhunter's sister application 'lynis':

As another option you could download Kali Linux 2018 and do some penetration testing. ;) :D

Lynis is is great and much more efficient for mortal sinners (like me) to act upon warnings.

We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
