Securing Your System


In this chapter, we’ve looked at what threats your system faces and how security holes can be exploited by malicious interests. You learned about measures you can take to protect your system, such as updating it online and configuring the system’s firewall. We also discussed some common-sense rules you can follow to keep your system safe.

In the next chapter, we move on to looking at how your SUSE Linux system can be personalized and how to set up everything to suit your own preferences.
