It seems a lot of people just disable most of it because it's too complicated.
There isn't a single command that I'm aware of that will reset permissions that have been altered. Linux allows the user to do both useful and self-destructive things to installations. It's non-discriminatory that way.I am not having any issues at this time. I do not mess with permissions and such and in fact I have never really learned to use them except through the folder/file>preferences>permissions tab.
But my question is, if a person messed around and screwed up permissions all over the computer, is there a command that would reset all system permissions to the default state?
The closest I have had to a linux breach was recently I had people trying to hack into a mysql database. apparently they hijack them and hold them ransom for bitcoin.
Makes me wonder about google if they can't control their own system access and continue to allow people to misuse the resources.
that is true I have seen them for sale so I know where to look too. Sad that people put that much effort into being criminals. They could use half that effort and make twice as much plus benefit others in a legit way.I get a whole lot of attacks from AWS, as well.
Oddly, I don't get many attacks from Azure.
I think they do police bad actors, it's just that bad actors have enough funds and time to generate new accounts. Maybe their policing should include payment methods. If you used x-credit card (assuming it's not stolen) to sign up and were canceled, don't let that credit card be used on another account.
But, then again, how many of these are legit credit cards? I doubt the criminals are using their own money for this. You can buy stolen debit cards for pennies on the dollar if you know where to look.
