    Security is never completed until:
    "You can't expect to hold supreme executive power just because some watery tart lobbed a sword at you"

    "Don't let your mind wander -- it's too little to be let out alone."

    - no system related back-ups

    - truecrypt comes with a poor license. Take a look at the Fedora contra truecrypt discours on their forum.
    Soul-Sing, I have been aware of the Truecrypt problem for quite some time, the launchpad entry #109701 attempts to bring things together but I find it all sooooo easy to use. It may not bee the best tool but until somethings else comes along I think I'll stick with it.

    I would say

    Security is never completed until:
    Code:
    #apt-install purge amazon-lens

    Security and privacy are not the same thing.

    and Security is never completed, it is a continual process.

    And that command doesnt exist.

    That will get you a nice message about how your system can't find any command called 'apt-install'

    'apt-get purge amazon-lens*' perhaps?

    Still, the Amazon thing is not a security issue and it's barely got the potential for a privacy issue.

    I'm betting those people also have the same password for every site, "inexplicable" spam on their facebook and gmail accounts, and perhaps their computers are loyal slaves in a botnet.

    I'm not sure what people think a hacked computer looks like. Do they think a photo of a skull pops ups and laughs at them? Why would the hacker make a grand show to ensure the victim knows he was hacked? What would be the point of hacking if you got caught right away?



    Oh God! I can see the skull & crossbones! I must be hacked!!!
