Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
There are GUIs for selinux, but I don't remember which because I avoid GUIs if possible, and there are tons of tools for it.
The idea with SELinux is that it's the developers of whatever app that should be providing policies and selinux booleans for fast configuration, so that the setroubleshoot GUI can directly display "This was blocked, run this line to allow.", and the sandboxing thing is already covered (As mentioned above).
For the IP traffic, it also has some labeling functionality for traffic, I haven't looked into that.
For comparison, we've all had to learn httpd.conf and other configs at some point too, it's just that users are afraid to touch SELinux in the first place.
The one suing:
They're making an example of someone, and scaring off other people due to their oh-so-effective tactic.
Case publicity, all they have to do is put some outrageous number on the paper and others will report on it.
The person getting sued:
He is eventually forced to sell off anything of value and live on what they consider to be a minimum standard of living.
His life is virtually wasted, because lets face it, you can't do anything when you've only got money for food, and if one gets a better job or similar, then they'll only take more and the person is still in the same situation.
The more important question that never pops up because talking about debt is such a taboo: Is it right to sentence someone to life in poverty and psychological abuse if they didn't cause anyone harm or emotional damage?. From a debt-based economy's perspective that's a definite yes. Profiting on debtors is just another business.
