  1. [ubuntu] Re: How to fully secure and harden a Ubuntu 20.04 laptop?

    I think you are missing the point. There isn't any things that is "totally secure". There are just ways to make a system less hack-able, up to a point. The amount of effort involved depends...

  5. [ubuntu] Re: How to fully secure and harden a Ubuntu 20.04 laptop?

    That's true. Remember reading about a printer being forced to make specific noises so a fax machine in the same room could dial out reproducing the saved pages at a remote spying location. Both the...

    I think every individual will have different answers, sometimes, different answers based on the time of day.

  10. [ubuntu] Re: Make xdotool accessible to every local user in ubuntu

    xdotool has to be tied to an X/session to work. X/Sessions are per-userid and don't get created until a GUI login happens.
    Google found this, which appears to have a possible workaround....
  11. 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.

    Why can he modify the /etc/hosts file at all? Don't give his...

  13. 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?

    xdotool probably doesn't work with Wayland, so when running with Xorg isn't available anymore, we'll need a different tool. I use it and cnee to automate some website scaping on a weekly basis.

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

    Don't use a task bar? There are lots of window managers that don't have one.
    However, you cannot remove it from the process table ... er ... without hacking the kernel. This is how root-kits work...
  16. 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?

    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!).
