Find me one link that says "my machine and network was hacked because I logged into my Linux as root".
In any case Aus9, it's all good. As I alluded to, this is the exact reason I left all forums, from Backtrack to Slax. Same story all the time. Francois pm me and asked me to look at this topic and give my 2 cents worth. I have done so.
I wish everyone enjoys the experience of learning through forums. Hopefully the people who know what they are talking about are the ones contributing.
francois has changed the thread subject but normal protocols still apply. If you are going to debate someone please cite known references and altho I am guilty of this myself try and not look you are questioning the other person....meaning showing disrespect.
healthy debate is good.....rather than say something is the case or something you said is not the case how about citing some references?
I think francois from day one, has been asking the question is it safe to login as root. He has a number of replies some for and some against.
Lets try and clean up the main theme and I will send anyone who is naughty to the naughty corner. I have been there its a lonely place
offtopic ask 2 doctor gurus what is wrong with me?
Dr 1 there is nothing wrong with me
Dr 2 everything
So without good links what do I do? We need to educate our members and take them on a journey....spoon feeding is allowed sometimes
