The Ultimate Online Privacy Test Resource List!

 

http://www.ghacks.net/2015/12/28/the-ultimate-online-privacy-test-resource-list/

 

While this one isn't Linux only, still it's users can benefit from the privacy tools offered. There are many on down the page, just follow whatever instruction is given to use. Linux security is just as important as for any OS, some of these tools can help to plug privacy leaks. :)

 

Enjoy! :thumbup2:

That is an excellent find, JohnC_21 :thumbup2:

 

For the viewers, I took a quick look at John's link.

 

Magazines are published in English as standard PDF or as EPUB for e-book readers, also a French edition with standard PDF.

 

Standard PDF is approximately 48 to 50 pages typically.

 

I might just download the whole lot and start reading, lol.

 

Thanks for sharing.

The humble bundle has a book bundle with a bunch of Unix goodies. The most you'd have to pay is $15 to get the complete bundle, but for those that want the books, I hope it helps ^-^.

The bundle will no longer be available past December 6th!

Using ubuntu and sharing how to as well as collecting how to scripts for common programs. Feel free to ask or share ^-^

Nice find! Plus part of your money goes to a foundation, so win win for everyone!

 

Sed and Awk are great tools! I suggest everyone get to know them. Used them a ton in my last job for all sorts of various scripts.

I really find this topic very interesting and benefited from it. Thus, I had to share with interested users what I also found interesting about the recent Linux threats and way out. Here is the link http://cyberhack.us/linux-android-malware-recent-threats/

Hopefully, someone will find it interesting too.
