How Secure is Ubuntu?

I got an email today about a bug in ubuntu:

It seems that the user's password created during the instalation is listed in, at least, 1 file.
Read the whole thing here

Isn't that funny? Thank God I came back to Debian πŸ™‚

  1. me

    It seems my ubuntu is much safer than yours …. my password doesn’t show up in that file πŸ™‚

  2. maybe because the bug wasn’t in your Ubuntu version? πŸ˜‰

  3. This OS is very safe.
    No one even bothers to hack into personal computers with a Linux OS.
    To feel safer simple install security addons from their site.
    Search for best security applications and pick the one with the best reviews.
    Your welcome world. πŸ˜‰

  4. you are soooooo wrong πŸ˜‰ linux doesn’t mean ‘save’, althou it’s very hard to crack it. But that doesn’t mean that any one would be able to get you πŸ˜‰

  5. linux is more secure than windows, windows operating system has a registry editor other than linux, making linux more realiable than windows, i am currently runing vista, seriously, vista is a ticking time bomb for disasteri do a lot of networking and my parents wont let me change the os. that’s why i’m building a apevia x-plorer with an asus motherboard and terabyte hard drive with hardware firewall and ubuntu linux installed on it πŸ˜› gotta love linux, no dos either, windows has dos on it, i know a lot of commands of dos but it’s not that good compared terminator on linux.

      “gotta love linux, no dos either, windows has dos on it, i know a lot of commands of dos but it’s not that good compared terminator on linux.”

      you are not normal. seriously: tell your parents to buy you a new brain instead of an operating system
