I'm trying to secure up my system since a few days and I've figured there's way more I never knew about and I'm finally realizing my system was way more insecure than I thought it would be. My system was an open book to say the least.
I think it would be better if I would read a good book on computer security and surfing anonymously on the web instead of keep trying by my own, that way I can make sure I have no holes which I may have over-seen.
I'm basically trying to build a system which is not easy to hack into, and I basically want to surf the web without people knowing which sites I go including the ISP.
I thought about using Hide My Ass (or something similar) for the latter part.
I'm even considering to give Linux a try once again.
Again my two goals are:
- make system hard to hack
- surf anonymously the web
