Looking for more context and viewpoints on madaidan's critique of Linux security

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/PrivacyGuides

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • Scout APM - Truly a developer’s best friend
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • Zigi - The context switching struggle is real
  • Windows11_Hardening

    A collection about Windows 11 security

    For security hardening either use the Windows security baselines to harden Windows, or go a step further and use a third-party guide like https://github.com/beerisgood/Windows11_Hardening.

  • Windows-Sandbox-Utilities

    A public repository for useful developments surrounding Windows Sandbox

    so wait, you can prevent that also. I don't know what UWP is but there is a Windows Sandbox Utility. Nice. Let's follow the link (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/threat-protection/windows-sandbox/windows-sandbox-overview) to find that it says, "A sandbox is temporary. When it's closed, all the software and files and the state are deleted.". Do you honestly mean to tell me normal people use that when they install something? I don't think people even know that exists

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Data Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services in less time with less code.

  • picosnitch

    Monitor network traffic per executable using BPF

    I just want to add since application firewalls on Linux don't even need root to bypass (e.g. by calling an an allowed app, or by using mount namespaces so the executable path appears to be the same as an allowed app), I created a slightly more reliable bandwidth monitor for detecting this sort of stuff.

  • scripts

    various scripts and tools (by xkcd386at)

    spent about 2 hours, but it was worth it; enjoy: https://github.com/xkcd386at/scripts/blob/master/linux-and-windows-insecurities--theory-vs-practice.md
