  1. Re: Make File or Folder immutable/unchangeable

    Completely? No. /etc/hosts files are a 20% solution, at best. Same for DNS. Anyone with any technical skill can get around those.

  3. Re: Is it possible to access Ubuntu from Windows 10 running in Virtualbox

    No. Did I say that?

    There's no PROOF that any hypervisor is more secure than any other to my knowledge, but KVM is what all the VPS providers in the world use, it is part of the core Linux kernel...

    [SOLVED] Re: How do I hide a window?

    However, you cannot remove it from the process table ... er ... without hacking the kernel. This is how root-kits work...
  6. Re: Is it possible to access Ubuntu from Windows 10 running in Virtualbox

    Yes.
    Breaking out of a VM is a test every hypervisor has failed. Why use a desktop tool like virtualbox when you have KVM - an enterprise tool?

  9. Re: Thinking about switching over to Ubuntu from EOS -- minimum size for root partit

    Yeah - what's EOS? Is that like the difference between IOS and iOS?

    Re: Automount and not existing Keys

    I'd use 'locate' to search for files on the system with those names. Did you look for all the .automount files on the box? I have some in /lib/systemd/system/ and for some snaps (ARGGGGGGGG!).
