Keylogger (sort of) with Ubuntu

Recommended Posts

From the legal stuff that came with 14.04.2:

 

"When you enter a search term into the dash Ubuntu will search your Ubuntu computer and will record the search terms locally.

. . .

Unless you have opted out . . . we will also send your keystrokes as a search term to productsearch.ubuntu.com and selected third parties . . . including: Facebook, Twitter, BBC and Amazon.

. . .
By searching in the dash you consent to:
the collection and use of your search terms and IP address in this way; and
the storage of your search terms and IP address by Canonical and such selected third parties (if applicable)
. . .
Online Search
You may restrict your dash so that we don’t send searches to third parties and you don't receive online search results. To do this go to the Privacy panel and toggle the ‘Include online search results’ option to off. . . . "

But it doesn't say that Ubuntu doesn't keep the data anyway. 

 

Good grief, there must be a lot of money in the data collection business. 

 

 

The CCleaner SLIM version is always released a bit after any new version; when it is it will be HERE :-)

Pssssst: ... It isn't really a cloud. Its a bunch of big, giant servers.

That means no Ubuntu for me in the future, although I wouldn't doubt tons of OSes and software keeping and sharing data especially those who aren't up front telling that they do such practices.

One can stop a lot of that in windows if one has the time to tinker with it, but with linux distros who knows?  Might be possible to learn how, but what a pain.

I'm just not that into the late 90s or early 2000s. The music sucked, by the way. And so did distros.

Uhhhhh what?

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

A person who develops distros would be a DistroTech, and wear a leisure suit?  Burn them to a CD and you're a Disk-O-Tech?  Is that what you mean?
