Reddit: Security question

Monday 14th of November 2016 03:23:35 PM

I have recently installed Linux mint as main OS. If I leave a hdd unmounted, would that make it harder to be hacked? Reason I ask is I have USB hdd with stored passwords (encrypted partition). In Windows I used to disconnect WiFi, connect hdd, copy password, disconnect hdd, paste password, then reconnect to WiFi! Paranoid I know lol. I know nothing is un- hackable, just wandering how much harder it would be to hack an unmounted, encrypted space on the drive. Thanks

No one knows when it will happen. No one knows the magnitude. Read more

Android Marshmallow on PC Falls Flat

The Android-x86 Project eventually may become a viable operating system alternative for your desktop and laptops computers, but it's not there yet. You will have to wait a while for the developers to fix a number of failures with the latest release upgrading Android-x86 to Marshmallow 6.0.1. The developers late this summer released the first stable version of Android-x86 6.0, codenamed "Marshmallow." Android-x86 lets you run the Android OS with the Google Chrome browser on your desktop and laptop computers, rather than buying one of the qualified Chromebooks with the Google Play Store features bolted on.
