Booting from Ubuntu CD and web surfing Tags: CD-Rom Ubuntu Last response: July 29, 2007 1:36 AM in Linux/Free BSD Share Thomasx July 29, 2007 12:54:28 AM I've been playing around with Ubuntu a little and I was wondering how safe it was to be booting from an Ubuntu CD and web surfing? tia, Thomasx More about : booting ubuntu web surfing linux_0 July 29, 2007 1:36:30 AM If you mean safe from security threats I would say it is rather safe, a lot safer than the average computer with a proprietary OS and IE on it. If you want a virtually absolutely safe way to surf disconnect your HDD and simply use a Live CD or DVD to surf the net and maybe a USB flash drive for storage if needed. You should be able to install clamav and avgfree if you want anti-virus protection for your downloaded files. Good luck Can't find your answer ? Ask !
