I started with ubuntu a few years ago when my win xp caught a fatal virus and didn't have the money to by ms software. Then i moved on to mint. And now just installed Kali. I have it linked with my google, so won't be doing any pen testing with it. Just wanted to get a feel for it for when i am ready to get into net sec. rkhunter ... just paranoid i guess. lol
Ok, tnx. i use adblock , https everywhere, disconnect.me. My Linux boxes are on VirtualBox. My Bare Metal machine is win10 so i can game and watch netflix etc... but Kapersky's still caught the malware. I dont visit any questionable websites but in the last month i got the "we're j bsod" so i blew out my pc. and then yesterday my steam acct. (which isn't even installed on my win10 )was attacked from a vodafone vpn in turkey. so i blew it out again and that's when i installed Kali. Don't know if these are random attacks or directed (we have a disgruntled x-employee), so i am being as careful as possible. Just added Malwarebytes Browser Guard, tnx for the tip.
