blackriver Posted November 16, 2010 Share Posted November 16, 2010 I wanted to turn an old computer into a fileserver (running Debian). I wanted to store all my data there, so that my regular PC will only have one HDD running the OS (Windows) and programs. So I created a samba share, and got it working neatly right away. But after installing some pentesting tools, it occured to me that storing all my sensitive, private and personal data and running shady hacking/pentesting tools on one single box might not be a good idea. Now, my question is, how to keep my personal data as safe as possible on my little Linux fileserver? I have used a different user + usergroup for my samba shares, so my normal user account can't access the samba shares thanks to regular Linux file permissions. Is there anything more I can do?
