Webconverger

Webconverger è una distribuzione Linux live basata su Debian adatta per un utilizzo solamente su internet e pensata per gli internet point o le postazioni internet degli uffici. Funziona su tutti i pc x86 purchè abbiano almeno 1GB di RAM.

Versione 32.0

Questa versione contiene (in Inglese):

Prompted by the disturbing privacy defaults in Windows 10 and an enquiry whether Webconverger leaked any intranet information, we reviewed Firefox defaults.

This review was accomplished with Wireshark, a tool that allows us to analyse every packet leaving and entering a Webconverger instance.

Strictly speaking these Firefox defaults don’t leak any private information and elements like safe browsing should give an extra layer of malware protection, but in practice the network noise generated by these services are too risky for security. Some future exploit could masquerade as one of the services we turned off and it would have been very difficult to have noticed it otherwise. Furthermore “Safe browsing” doesn’t really have value when a typical Webconverger deployment is locked on a customer’s homepage.

So our quiet defaults from version 32 can be overridden by your own Firefox preferences with our prefs= API to turn them back on for example.
