I've read of people complaining that Single User Mode may leave them in a vulnerable position using Linux.
I have searched the Forum for info, but I just keep coming up with that statement, not an explanation. Maybe I'm not selecting the correct terms in my search ? I could Google 'Single user mode', and actually will now I think of it, but would be interested to hear what people here have to say, as this is my base.
Anyway, after about six years using PCLinuxOS, three as single boot Linux, I've felt a change of feeling from ,"Linux is absolutely safe online", to more recently, "The dangers of running in single User mode should be explained".
I understand to not login as root.
I am the user of my Computer, and I have one profile, therefore I suspect I'm using "Single User Mode ?"
Replies most welcome, thankyou.
