    OS Without Apparmor or SELINUX | Is that unsafe?

    Hi, I installed PCLINUXOS on one of my PCs.

    Later I came to that PCLINUXOS has neither apparmor nor selinux.

    Do you think its unsafe working without any one of them installed ?

    Not unsafe. As long as you are careful you'll be fine.

    Do you think it is unsafe to go to the grocery store without a Kevlar vest?

    This raises the question: Is it a good idea to disable Apparmor on Ubuntu assuming PEBKAC is not an issue?

    No. It is there for a reason.
