Ubuntu Server Question
Incoming linux noob question. I'm working on setting up some virtual servers on ubuntu server 16.04 / 18.04. Given that I'll eventually make these reachable from outside my LAN I started reading up on linux hardening steps. A lot of guides keep mentioning to create a non root user account. Is there any need to actually do this given that during installation of 16.04 / 18.04 the user you create is a sudoer and the root account doesn't get it's own unique password (as far as I can see)?
