I just started with Ubuntu Alternet 8.04.1 LTS with 1386 ISO. As a new user I want to protect my system before I get on the internet. I felt unprotected using Windows, and got adaware and viruses.
I downloaded and burned these .deb files for protection along with Avast! for Linux :
bastille - Security hardening tool (Should I be using SELinux instead?) harden - Makes your system hardened harden-environment - Hardened system environment harden-nids - Harden a system by using a network intrusion detection system harden-remoteaudit - Audit your remote systems from this host harden-servers - Avoid servers that are known to be insecure harden-surveillance - Check services and/or servers automatically harden-tools - Tools to enhance or analyze the security of the local system hardening-wrapper - experimental compiler wrapper to enable security hardening flags harden-clients_0.1.32_all.deb (Not sure if I need it...) Firestarter -- for firewall.
After doing all of this, I was unable to install them! I thought I could use to install Windows program and tried to intall by clicking on them from the DVD and it would not Install.
Any help can give would be greatly appreciated.
