Angry Debian8 - hard disk blocked after viewed porno`s site.


Does anyone hear about a computer and disk lock on Debian 8 with Firefox configuration level? Is this a matter of governmental organizations? From what I know the problem should be more on the side of the owner of the page and not the user the more when he is an adult.
Kernel 3.16.04 - Installation is not reccomended.

don't trust porn, sites. if you have a disposable PC then use it to access such sites. What I mean, a PC that you don't mind getting caught by malware or viruses and just wipe or throw the hard disk if cannot be repaired.

there is no such thing as secure PC, when you visit such sites. I mean literally.

if possible also stay away such activity, it kills the soul. Good luck man!

What do you mean by "hard disk blocked"? What are the precise symptoms? What happens when you reboot? What happens when you boot from rescue media?

Most governments don't regulate access to porn sites, as long as it's legal (e.g. no kid porn), and I can't imagine they punish you by messing with your hard disk. Exceptions might be the likes of Iran and Saudi Arabia.

Apart from that, as JJJCR said.

No way of knowing what you are wanting. If Firefox is misbehaving then clear out Firefox's cache, and config files if you need to, and start over.

Then stop going to porn sites with javascript turned on in your browser. Why don't you just asked to be owned.

If you must do that then look at
Code:
youtube-dl --list extractors
It works on a lot of them as you can see.

No, and there's insufficient information here for anybody to be able to help you.

Suggest you review the LQ Site FAQ link shown on the right form menu choices and revise your question.

I think it's fairly well known that malware sites use honeypots to lure fools in. The two commonest ones are porn and pirated software.

PCLinuxOS comes with a cronjob set up to run hblock. That downloads a list of malware sites and blocks them using /etc/hosts:

Also, don't trust anyone who believes in a "soul" or peoples opinions(-religions) in general.

You can use a live operating system to go in the hard drive and remove anything you need...

I always use script blockers and ad blockers when in Chrome or Firefox or whatever!


Porn is way better than flooding the Earth with more babies, in just one or two generations could expect 14 trillion of us, up from now 7.some billion?

The disk slows down and makes strange metallic noises, the cd-rom doesn't want to read the discs - can`t boot from cd.
I don't know if it is related, but the pendrive stopped working - "no media" by the Universal USB Installer application.

Is it old?

I'd run some live* operating systems and see if they work well... testing the hardware.

Or, just reinstall and see if that does the trick?

If this is the hard drive your talking about sounds like it is on the way out, if it hasn't already quit working.

The other reason can be a software which uses [almost] 100% of available resources, so the regular user has no chance to do anything. But it is not a problem with the disk.

Windows 7 is no longer supported and will be even worse for surfing porn. Get a good antivirus or you will be in the same situation in no time...

I would use a VM. And just clone again in case of any issue like this.
