Debian is fine out of the box, and if you apply your security upgrades in a timely manner and don't install random application from third party repositories, you'll probably be fine.

I run firejail with Firefox for an extra layer of security, by the way.

In addition, don't run as root, and don't run programs or commands as root or with sudo unless they really require that.

If I had a nickel for every time someone ran inxi as root when I just asked for inxi...I'd have a lot of nickels.

novice, based on the lack of details you provided, even after three pages, it appears that these "people" are just screwing with you. Most likely collating posts from your "social media" accounts and then making it appear they "hacked" you. Similar to spoofing https://www.techopedia.com/definition/5398/spoofing . Once this idea was supplanted the other random events seemed to concur that you were hacked, when they may have been coincidences if not for the aforementioned screwing around with. What your post does help to illuminate is the dangers of social media, especially for people that post their entire lives online including pictures of family members, vacations etc... Private detectives, spooks, freaks and villains used to work really hard for this info in the past, now they just collate data off social media.

Just a hunch, only you can tell for sure, after all, how do you know someone on this thread is not one of "those people". [cue x files theme song/]

Don't talk rubbish you stupid son of a bitch. I do not post my personal life on any social media(I never did that till now). I didn't post the announcement of the order on any social media. So, no, they couldn't have found out about it through my behaviour. Coincidences doesn't explain the time of audio balance.

So you bitches and sons of bitches are in bed with my abusers that's why you are shielding those bitches by deleting my posts?

My abusers: link removed

Those bitches made that post after I received a Wacom graphic pen tablet. I monitor that hashtag regularly.

And I didn't announce the Wacom tablet anywhere.

This is the third post exposing my abusers, earlier two were deleted.

Er, d00d, perhaps it's time to start taking those little blue pills the doctor gave you? I think they will help :mrgreen:

I had toothache the other week, I entered nothing about it into the computer but I started getting pop-up adverts for dentists and suchlike, how do you explain that, eh?

EDIT: that twitter link makes no sense at all, it keeps getting removed because it looks like spam.

May I suggest also ? the OP (and any one else really) should read this:
Forum guidelines. Please read before first post!
Even when one has made several posts, it never is to late to read it,..
---snip--Really members should read it all>>>If you feel like your post/ thread has been locked, edited or even removed in error please contact the moderator team via e-mail at team@forums.debian.net.
Summary
The following might get your post EDITED:
- Profanities
- Links to inappropriate websites

The following might get your post/ thread LOCKED
- Flaming/ personal attacks
- Obvious trolling
- Thread has wandered way off topic
- Cross posting

1.The link to the twitter site did not show anything at all about wacom tablets, or in any way show / prove anything, and also had nothing to do with Debian, nor Debian security, nor anything in this topic/ thread.
2.Calling other members bitches, and sons of bitches, is just plain abusive,
3. The thread has wandered way off topic.
Do I need to say anymore ?
