Security Basics for SUSE 9.1?
I have recently managed to install SUSE 9.1 and get it to work with my dial-up provider. Other than downloading and installing all available updates with YAST and configuring printer permissions I am using it with it's default installation settings and have not yet configured a firewall manually. Is there some security running already in the default installation? Or am I running a big risk using the default install? I do not surf as root. The machine is currently not networked to anything else but the dial-up.
P.S. in the past five years I've made four attempts to switch to Linux. The SUSE 9.1 distro is the first to get me all the way to the web. I have arrived!! :-)
