say I have a reverse tunnel from my computer to my shell account online. Does that make me more susceptible to being hacked?
I want to use it for my macbook pro from my dorm room. Cheers
It might make you more susceptible to attacks from that server. It all depends on how you have the reverse tunnel set up. It is not usually any less secure than a regular ssh tunnel, but it does give the other computer a little more access to your home PC.
