    [kubuntu] Re: what happens with a faked repository

    No, it's not possible. The attacker would not have Ubuntu's repository signing key and the "update" would fail.
  3. [ubuntu] Re: What is the worst a browser exploit could do in Ubuntu?

    Basically an attacker would have the same access to the machine that the user does. He wouldn't have root unless he has a separate exploit that allows him to escalate (i.e. a flaw in the OS). This...

    [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 12.10 full disk encryption question

    A LiveCD wont help anyone read the data on the encrypted drive. The only thing they could do would be to destroy your data, but reading it is out of the question unless they have the crypto key.

    [ubuntu] Re: SSL for MD5 checksums page

    In such a case, it's not a big deal to use MD5. For what Ubuntu uses it for, it doesn't need to be collision resistant because it is only used as a checksum. As for package integrity, the PGP...

  11. [all variants] Re: Once again: Apparmor and Firefox default profile - few questions.

    The problem is the user-files abstraction allowing writing to anywhere in /home.

    [ubuntu] Re: Connecting to unknown wireless networks

    Brute-forcing only works if the AP uses a weak password. Good luck brute forcing my router, which has a random 128 bit password.
