Security Tools to Check for Viruses and Malware on Linux by https://is.gd/VLyo98


Wait, Linux needs antivirus and anti-malware solutions? I thought it was immune to such things. Perhaps a bit of clarification is necessary here. First and foremost, no operating system is 100 percent immune to attack. Whether a machine is online or offline, it can fall victim to malicious code.

Although Linux is less prone to such attacks than, say, Windows, there is no absolute when it comes to security. I have witnessed, first hand, Linux servers hit by rootkits that were so nasty, the only solution was to reinstall and hope the data backup was current. I’ve been a victim of a (very brief) hacker getting onto my desktop, because I accidentally left desktop sharing running (that was certainly an eye opener). The lesson? Even Linux can be vulnerable.

How To Choose The Right Linux Distribution by https://is.gd/tJdgUX

If you’re new to Linux, you might not know exactly which Linux distribution to use. This is understandable, as there are many, many different types of Linux distributions out there. They all serve different purposes and are geared towards different types of people.

It is because of this, we’ve decided to break down popular Linux operating systems, talk about what they’re for, and how to settle on a distribution. Keep in mind, this isn’t just for people completely brand new to Linux.

3 things you need to remember when Upgrading to Fedora 23 as for the Unicmen’s instructions

The upgrade from Fedora 22 to Fedora 23 is not automatic, as usual in my Fedora experience, but it is really simple to manage if you follow the path suggested by Unixmen.

There are few things you need:

connect your laptop to the power plug (if you use a laptop);

– a couple of hours (something more or less depending on your CPU, RAM, Internet connection speed, etc..);

few lines of commands on the Terminal

The upgrading process is well structured and to start it you need to launch Terminal and upgrade the native Fedora Fedup with its new version that now is integrated into DNF:

dnf upgrade

Then you have to install the DNF plugin:

dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade

and finally you can start the “core” part of the upgrade just typing:

dnf system-upgrade download –releasever=23 –allowerasing –best 


– allowerasing will continue the upgrade also in presence of any “old” (not yet upgraded) third part repositories that normally would have completely stopped the main upgrading process

-best is a verbose mode in case of unsatisfied dependencies

After a while, depending on your Internet connection speed, you will be able to conclude the upgrade typing:

dnf system-upgrade reboot

Your laptop will reboot and the upgrade starts.

From now you spend more than 40 minutes waiting and answering to few easy questions that the OS asks you to solve some configuration matters.

The length of the waiting time depends obviously on the CPU, the RAM and the type of Hard Disk installed into your PC.

That’s it!
