    Default linux bsd spyware

    so i am now playing with pfsence firewall

    i want to know how to find, eliminate, and refuse "BSDstats" to ever be on my machine again

    in short i hate spyware to the extreme that i value my privacy more than i value my own life,
    but sadly this program is the best firewall on the planet at the moment
    not to mention it's free



    thanks

    Default Re: linux bsd spyware

    I'm not sure I'd define bsdstats as spyware, but I get your point for sure.

    I think the command "pkg delete bsdstats" should remove it, as PFSense is based on FreeBSD, and I gather from this page https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/pkgng-intro.html that this is how you remove packages.

    If that doesn't work, we'll have to dig around some more.
