Using extended attributes to better protect files

Post date: August 18, 2005, 18:08 Category: System Views: 12437 Comments
Tutorial quote: How many times have you accidentally overwritten a configuration file during an etc-update that you had customized? I had been aware of extended attributes for a long while now, but I had never taken the time to actually use them. The extended attribute that I am mostly interested with is the immutable attribute. This attribute, which can only be set by root, prevents a file from be changed or deleted, even by root.

Easy peasy full system backup

Post date: August 12, 2008, 12:08 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 3808 Comments
Tutorial quote: You know how when someone accidentally deletes their files or their hard drive crashes or some other apocalyptic event occurs, the first thing people ask is “where is your backup”? Of course, we’ve all seen it (*ahem* been there ). It’s a bit unintuitive, because backups have no equivalent in the real world. If you drive your car into a lake, there’s no way to get it back. But making backups is the single best way to prevent losing your stuff. So do it!

shred - Securely delete files in Linux

Post date: January 24, 2010, 06:01 Category: Security Views: 4956 Comments
Tutorial quote: In case you want to delete some confidential data from your computer just to make sure that it is no longer accessible to anyone, then do not delete the file using the regular rm command because there will still remain a chance that someone might use a software to recover your deleted data before the specific storage area is overwritten by new data.
