    No, too generic of a question. For a person who needs to ask I would say openSUSE is quite secure by default. If you want to research this is a good place to start. openSUSE: Security Guide | ActiveDoc

    Where I can find some security-statements, how safe should be OpenSuse in detail?

    Greetings,


    P.S. I know there will be no absolut security, but some decent engineering and security analysis will help to...
