Can you update this answer. I think hotmail.com does allow for IMAP4 now.

comment Deploying Ubuntu in a public school - image creation and updates
The disadvantage of using guest sessions might be (not sure here) that you cannot collect who used what computer when. If someone does something illegal on one of your computers that is something you might need to know. Disclaimer: I am just thinking aloud here. Might be wrong.

I gave it some thought and I want to revert my downvote. I can only do so if you edit the answer though.

Nice! Have an upvote. Maybe you can include it in the answer?

Hi Braiam. Can you explain your second command with some more detail? Step by step maybe? If it works, this looks like an interesting answer and I learned something new.

comment Remove KDE and switch to CLI
I understand that a reinstall is not always an option. I disagree that this is a suggestion and not an answer though. It might not be the answer you prefer, but it is an answer. Definitely for a server you should be sure it is absolutely as clean as possible both for security and performance.

comment Do I need to have 'antivirus software' installed?
@comrademike the best viruses are the ones left undetected. I don't want to scare you, but thinking that your system is safe because it's linux is a mistake. It being linux does help a lot to keep it safe, but that safety is not foolproof.

comment Do I need to have 'antivirus software' installed?
@Rinzwind I agree that the answer belongs there. I'll ask to merge. I disagree that you need to be root in order to damage. Read the section "You don't need to be root to 0wn someone" in the how to link. You can steal passwords, emailadresses, have ad pages visited, etc. Root offers a lot of protection, but it is only one password away.

Richard please don't edit the answer in your question. You are free to answer your own question in a separate answer. I did give you an upvote for a good question.

That said, I am not sure whether this really is a hack. It seems more like you inadvertedly installed something.

comment Software center shows that Google Docs has been installed
@msw I disagree. Browser hacking is an issue. I don't see why there could not be any hidden vulnerabilities in linux. I would switch of the internet, look at the logs, mail google and see what activity has been logged for that period of time, mail disqus, etc. If you have personal info to protect, you should be careful (but not crazy).

comment What is the appropriate command line to connect through SSH?
I agree on the commands, but can you expand on the possible problems? Firewall, wrong pass, certificates, etc.

comment Using Windows programs or alternatives?
I think this is a nicely written answer, but it is a bit of a workaround. It simply suggests to keep on using Windows (which is a valid suggestion, but only part of the possible answer).
