I want to get or build a computer just for a Linux system and move more towards anonymity online and just in general.
The NSA has been known to intercept hardware and add in monitoring/spying tools. Also, BadUSB (https://opensource.srlabs.de/projects/badusb) is a thing and you can’t truly protect against it. I’m talking about already infected USB devices transporting spyware onto my system in this post.
So, how do cyber criminals and just anyone in general stay truly anonymous and defend against being spied on by anyone, particularly the government, through the huge badUSB vulnerability and the interception of hardware by the government?
