Compare NTFS vs ext4

without comments

ChatGPT: NTFS (New Technology File System) and ext4 (Fourth Extended File System) are both file systems used by operating systems to organize and store files on a storage device (such as a hard drive or SSD).

NTFS is a proprietary file system developed by Microsoft and is primarily used by Windows operating systems. It supports large file sizes and has advanced features such as file encryption and compression.

ext4 is a open-source file system that is primarily used by Linux and Unix-based operating systems. It is considered to be a more stable and reliable file system compared to its predecessor ext3. It also supports larger file and partition sizes, and improved performance.

In summary, NTFS is primarily used by Windows and has advanced features, ext4 is primarily used by Linux and Unix-based systems and is considered more stable and reliable.

What linux distro is most secure?

without comments

ChatGPT: There is no one Linux distribution that is universally considered the most secure, as the level of security can depend on a variety of factors, including the specific configuration and the way the operating system is used. However, some Linux distributions are generally considered to be more secure than others due to their focus on security features and practices.

For example, several distributions like Qubes OS, Whonix, and tails are known for their security-focused design and are often recommended for use in high-security environments.

Additionally, there are many hardened and security enhanced distributions, such as SELinux, AppArmor, Grsecurity, and TOMOYO Linux, which are built on top of existing distributions and provide additional security features, such as enhanced access controls and memory protection.

Windows vs GNU/Linux, what operating system is more secure?

without comments

ChatGPT: Both Windows and GNU/Linux are widely-used operating systems, and both have their own strengths and weaknesses when it comes to security.

In general, Linux-based systems, such as Ubuntu or Debian, are considered to be more secure than Windows due to the design of the Linux kernel and its open-source architecture. The open-source nature of Linux allows for constant community review and improvement of the code, which can help to quickly identify and fix security vulnerabilities. Additionally, Linux has built-in security features such as AppArmor and SELinux which provide an extra layer of protection.

On the other hand, Windows is a closed-source operating system, and as such, its source code is not publicly available for review and improvement. However, Microsoft has invested heavily in security and has implemented a number of security features in recent versions of Windows, such as Windows Defender and User Account Control, to help protect against threats.

In practice, the security of a system depends on many factors, including the specific configuration and how it’s being used. A Windows system that is properly configured and maintained can be just as secure as a Linux system.

It’s also worth noting that how the user interacts with the system also plays a big role in the overall security of the system. Avoiding opening suspicious emails and links, being cautious with permissions, and regularly updating the system are all important steps to keep a system secure, regardless of the OS.

Bitdefender Internet Security antiransomware

without comments

Bitdefender Internet Security and Bitdefender Total Security have a anti ransomware module.
I don’t know if the simple antivirus version also has it.
So even if a ransomware is not detected and blocked by the program, all your files will be restored automatically by the module if they become encrypted.
I use Bitdefender Internet Security to protect my PC and my laptop.

ZoneAlarm anti-ransomware trial 7 days or 30 days

without comments

I use Bitdefender Internet Security 2020 (1 year license protection for 3 devices) that has  multi-layered protection against ransomware, but I wanted another program that can increase protection against ransomware and that does not affect antivirus solution.
So I installed Zone Alarm anti-ransomware protection trial mode.
I hoped that I will get a 30 days free protection, but I got only 7 days trial of the product.
The good thing is that does not force you to give your email or other personal data (no credit card needed) so you can use the trial.
On there page when I wanted to close the page I get a better trial offer, 30 days instead of just 7.

I tried to install the 30 days version, but I got the same 7 days trial.
So first get on there page, click on the close button and get the 30 days trial.
I will save the 30 days trial install and I will use it next time I reinstall Windows, hoping that will work until then.
The price of 36.25€ for this software is high, and can be used on max 3 devices for 1 year.
You can buy Bitdefender Internet Security for $39.98 for the first year (3 devices, 1 year) and you get also anti-ransomware protection included, on
