>>47666959 Haven't heard of uBlock, but I admit that I'm lazy about keeping up to date on this shit. I've just been using NoScript and Adblock Edge for so long and it felt like enough. I'll read up on uBlock though and see if it's worth changing to.
I swear /g/, I've had no fucking luck with anti-viruses. First I fell for Avast years ago, then I felt I wised up and followed the trend of positive reviews for MSE. And now I'm being told that is supposedly not reliable.
>>47667028 Mint's firewall is disabled by default. Windows isn't the only OS with security issues or malware. Shell shock wasn't that long ago. How fucking dumb are you? >Hurr I just installed a GNU/Linux distro for the first time last week so let me tell you how I'm a security expert
>>47667020 That's because all antiviruses suck. I personally am not using ublock yet because it's a /g/ project and I don't really trust anything that comes from /g/. I'd be more likely to create my own browser plugin before I do that. It can't be that hard to utilize the already existing block lists out there.
>>47667043 >Mint's firewall is disabled by default Then turn it on. I never told you to be a retard and leave everything on default settings.
>Windows isn't the only OS with security issues or malware No, but it is by far the most targeted desktop OS and the fact that people have to use their web browsers to download software is a pretty huge security vulnerability.
>>47667043 >Shell shock wasn't that long ago The number of people using Linux for their desktops who were affected by that as a percentage was near 0%. It was fixed almost immediately after it went public and every major distro propagated the fix downstream.
