    Unauthorized USB uploads...whats the name of the program?


    I just did a fresh install of Fedora 26 on my laptop.

    I had previously installed an app that prevents unauthorized persons from sticking a flashdrive into my USB and uploading any information.

    I forgot the name of that program. Does anyone know?

    Hi
    thanks for the question.
    You did not provide any information about your PREVIOUS system.
    However there are systems that are defaulted against this and, to attract you to the system, since you are obviously security oriented, had a particular app on the system and renamed it. One can peruse usr/bin to possibly find the name, depending on the OS.
    Given the above, you might be talking about "usbguard"

    The command line method can be complex but it might be as simple as "doing a YUM" but the name of the package is " usbguard"

    here is a linky to the Fedora package.
