Excellent overview! I have one question: The "shredder" Does this mean if someone tries to access the computer and does not have the password that it will immediately shred all hard-drive data? You say you wrote a shell script. Perhaps you can enlighten us on how to do this ourselves? Meanwhile thanks for the wonderful explanation of anonymity and security! This will be priceless in the coming years (should we all survive 2012) when the govt. tries again and again to track us and hack us! Viva La Revolucion!
When I read through the vpn you suggested, it's requirements would of used up all my ram. I'm an absolute noob when it comes to anything like this and I appreciate your time. I have always had a too laid back attitude when it comes to online security... But having a mortgage and family now, definately think it's the right time to learn and keep our banking details safe!
Are there any minimum system requirements I should take into account?
Normally, no. If you have a Windows operating system installed on your computer, you don't have to meet any additional requirements. You don't need additional special software solutions, unusual hardware components and you don't have to make any complicated settings. CyberGhost VPN is installed almost automatically and, after creating an account and connecting, you can already use these services.
now got a vpn on my laptop...
but i can't view michael rivero's videos on justintv now!
