In This Chapter
I am Inspector Clouseau, and I am on official police business.
You don’t leave the front door of your house open when you go to work, do you? How about leaving it shut and locked but with a few nice, big windows open? The problem is that many people do this every day with their computers, and they don’t even know it! In this chapter, I take a look at where your open doors and windows are and what you can do to secure them.
Every user’s actions affect your overall system security. If your family members or officemates need access to your Linux machine, take the time to sit down and explain the facts of secure life to them. They can then apply this information to the other computers they use because these issues aren’t specific to Linux.
