Protect Console Screen Session
Because I often keep my IM ( finch ) in a screen session. I don't want the other users which I give root access ( via sudo for example ) to be able to attach to my session.
1. Generate a password
htpasswd -n doesntmatterwhatyouwritehere
Enter your password twice and copy the part after : in the output
2. Put that encrypted password in .screenrc like this
3. Other recommended settings in .screenrc
