How is Linux more secure compared to other operating systems?
There are multiple reasons for this –
- Linux gives very low access to its users. If there is a virus attack, only a few files will be corrupted not the whole system.
- It is less vulnerable because a user needs complete execution rights for opening even an email attachment.
- The working environment in Linux is segmented in different environments like Ubuntu, Arch, Linux Mint, etc. This division gives much protection from the virus.
- Linux uses Iptables which requires advanced privileges to function.
