I would not profess that you are 100% safe, because only the foolish deal in absolutes when it comes to computers. HOWEVER, you are way closer with the security settings strait off your first setup.
If you don't have anything constructive to add to a four year old thread. Then please don't resurrect it. You could have created a thread with a query or suggestion relative to Gnu/Linux with your problem or suggestions.
