Very good thread. Great info here.
I'm only since 1 year with Linux (before Linux, since 88, a "plain" wdoze, user).
Up to a couple of months ago I used to be quite relaxed while connected to the net: browsing, downloading, chats, a.s.o. A few months ago I was told about a serious problem with a wdoze user. From then, my security concerns became much higher.
How do I use my pc: I've one partition where I store files, mainly downloads from email, sites in the net or from bit-torrents: most are multimedia, e-books, gnome Art & Themes and office files. Everything that I want to keep permanently, is backed up and stored out of the pc, a.s.a.p. This is what I think most home pc user typically do.
Now, back to the topic: Should I worry, security wise, about running any of those files at a Linux OS (I multiboot various distros) ?
