comment How do I erase all data on ubuntu 14.04?
The only way to 'factory reset' an Ubuntu installation is, unfortunately, to do a reinstallation. There's no other real way to get it back to the 'factory clean' settings, in a sense, to where it appears untouched.

comment EXT4-fs error at boot in 14.04 LTS
Spacing is important, that's why I put the extra line break in, so it looks cleaner with how the data is displayed.

comment Update and upgrade - review packages?
This does not, however, guarantee compatibility version-to-version of custom or third party packages inside themselves. Keep that in mind.

One of your images was removed, and is no longer available, so it won't help us. Your second image shows that you have a bunch of problems there, including but not limited to Input/Output errors which could suggest hardware failure.

comment Update and upgrade - review packages?
Wrong. apt-get update will refresh all repository information, PPAs and standard system repositories alike. apt-get upgrade and more simply, apt-get whenever you upgrade OR install, will handle dependency checks and such.

comment Why does not the Wireless Connection get any Internet access?
@VaraPrada there's a point where 'pieces of information' becomes "too much data". Nobody should ever have to be reaching the 30k characters point anyways.

Wall of text posts are also really difficult to read :/ Is there a reason you provided so much information?

comment remove amonetize.gen
If your system is infected, nuke and reinstall is the best option... especially if you're hijacked on both Windows and Ubuntu.

comment Does clamav scan on real time (always alert)?
I don't believe ClamAV is a real-time detection system, I believe it's only on-scan detection. (Don't quote me on that though)

comment Windows 10 & Ubuntu
This won't solve their problem, @Techieman75, 'cause this would remove Win10 and the corresponding files/programs/etc.

comment About mx4 ubuntu edition
Try and keep questions to one question. As well, this is a very broad question, especially with point #3. Such broad questions are not good fits typically with the site...

comment Possible security issue? (syslog connect messages)
named will always spam you; I disable most of the logging accordingly to reduce the disk space usage by syslog. So will SMTP (and I do a similar log reduction by reducing the logging level). If you're concerned about that one server, block it with the firewall system (block all traffic from source ip)

comment Possible security issue? (syslog connect messages)
... Your third set indicates a nameserver is being queried - that's not unusual to see requests that your nameserver doesn't serve. Many different things try and use any nameservers they can get to to make requests for such - the query there you see was denied, because someone at the IP made the request, but you reject queries for every other zone but the ones you serve to the public, so those messages on your third set are NOT unusual, someone's trying to use your nameserver to find that domain's data, and that won't work because you reject those lookups.

comment Possible security issue? (syslog connect messages)
You've got a couple sets of different log data here... so lets look at these one at a time. Your first set is SMTP conection attempts. That means something's attempting to test your server to see if they can send SMTP as them. There's a thousand such things that hit my mailserver, too. Your second set appears to be the same. ...

Not within the space allotted here. Go here and read the "Preparing for Installation" section, and the infoblurb about custom CAs.

Make sure you're not using a self-signed cert - it won't work. If you do use a cert you generate, you'll need to generate the certificate and create yourself as a CA, and then copy the CA cert to each computer and them sign the endpoint certs with the CA signing cert. It won't be trusted outside the computers you explicitly add the certs to though, for trusting them.

comment Is there a ip address for adsl modem?
NOTE: Revealing your MAC address isn't going to expose you to much more in terms of 'attack vector' on your LAN NIC. In any case, you already SEE the IP address there, under the WAN information. What more are you looking for?
