my subject line might seem a bit irrelevant, but what I mean is after my last post :
I was unable to read/send my mails or to post to any forums. I read that Katana was trying to help me but I was unable to respond. I was feeling like someone had tied up my mouth So finally yesterday I reinstalled Xp, and Ubuntu 8.04 and now I am surfing from Ubuntu, not Xp. Earlier it was the same case but I faced same problem in XP and ubuntu. (About mails) Not only that, but my system time in both OSes kept on changing after each restart. And if I connected to net using XP, I got message saying a new USB drive was attached to my system.
Now with fresh installation these problems have disappeeared, but please tell me what things one needs to take care of while surfing through Linux.
I have enabled firewall and used 'ufw default deny'.
Can I post hijack log of my Ubuntu here?
What softwares are available for linux for security?
Also I want to install Java..and my be the flash thing ( sorry I dont know the exact name I will do it when some site asks me to install it).
Will it be safe?
