Is there a way I could protect my pc computer from being hacked in an event where the internet conection will be opened?
Thing is I am going to Campus Party Colombia 2013 and I was sugested to format my computer before going and after the event, Is that really necesary?
I know Unix like systems got a higher level of securty than Windows, however as in campus party there will be people who know a lot about hacking and networking, I'd rather take some considerations.
Is there a way to protect my computer? If not, What about installing another GNU/linux flavor alongside my Ubuntu installation?
I'd apreciate any advice on this.
