After reading this question https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/ques... I want to know if it is really necessary now to use a malware protection under Fedora 29 or is it enough to use a linux system with "brain" and to operate carefully inside the system? I checked different websites for Linux Anti-Virus solutions, but nothing convinced me. It seems to me that all solutions are a so called "Alibi-action". Please discuss it with me.

2018-11-15 11:50:06 -0600 marked best answer Convert Luks1 to Luks2: is it risky?

I read that Fedora uses now LUKS2 encryption by default. All my disks are LUKS1 encrypted. Makes it sense to convert the LUKS1 disks (/home) etc. to LUKS2? What are the risks and what would bring it to me? Are there special hardware requirements? What is the easiest way to do that? Thank you.
