Security of Gentoo right out of install? (2.6.10 kernel)
Comming from windows, I have no idea about what makes a secure system, so I ask, how secure is Gentoo fresh out of install (latest patches 2.6 kernel).
Also, how might I secure my system fairly well for just a regular joe schmoe user. It appears that the documents on the gentoo site are geared for commercial administrators plus google doesnt give anything of substance. I dont want to hamper my ability to run anything, but I dont want to be vulnerable either. What is a good middle ground, and how might i achieve it?
