How secure is Linux's secured files?
I notice that in windows I can pretty much...
open any file I want to
read any file I want to
write to any file I want to
delete any file I want to
However, I notice that Linux is very secure with it's files that it doesn't grant permission for one to examine. Of course, me being very ambitious, I had to find a way to override it.
I programmed like 45 different programs, and none of them worked.
Here is the situation:
I am located at: /home/matt
My sister's is at: /home/lizardbreath
Let's say that I want to access a text file called mybigsecret.txt
How in the world is it promatically possible, without me just typing in my root password?
Note: it's my computer!
Does anyone know if it is?
This is Something I was Wondering...
How in the world is it possible that an OPEN SOURCE OS has so much security... Means when it is possible to HACK a Closed SOurce.. then why in this world, an Open SOurce still prevails UNHACKED...
When the whole Source is known to a person, can't he find a way out of getting access to the files..I suppose that is possible..
The key aspect of the whole security of Linux is probably just a myth that LINUX is most Secured OS in the World... although I am sure that it offers a higher level of security than does a CLosed Source like WINDOWS.
A really amusing aspect...
Don't u guys Agree with me...
