Security package (Rev. 1.2) for Ubuntu: antivirus, firewall and P2P stealth


Linux PageLast May, in our Linux Page (in Spanish), we posted some suggestions about a basic security package for Linux. After less than one year we are back on this topic also because more than something has changed. As you know, Linux is the safer OS you can use today: specific Linux viruses are few and malware is rare but with the increasing of users some threads are becoming real. For this reason, I strongly believe that nowadays a firewall, like Firestarter, is not enough and we all need also a good antivirus and Moblock: the program which allows to use the Peer Guardian lists on Ubuntu protecting your privacy. Today, in our Linux package we’ve posted a short updated manual where we explain how to install a firewall (Firestarter), an antivirus (ClamAV) and a P2P stealth (Moblock). We have tested all this software on a Ubuntu 7.10 without relevant problems; the combined use of this triplet is strongly recommended for people who desire to preserve their data and privacy.

    Maybe Firestarter is a bit overdoing it. As most computer nowadays are behind a hardware firewall in the form of a router, then Firestarter may be useless.

    Also, it tends to create problems with internal network sharing; as Ubuntu is closed to the exterior by default, having a software firewall may be overkill
