Security

A nice "beginner level" article that talks a great deal about keeping system logs and how to check them for intruders, or crackers looking to break into your machine. Some nice tips and things to think about.


As DSL and cable modems become more popular this is stuff that your average user will need to know about.

Informative article. But the layout of that site looks strangely familiar... Ok, I can obviously understand copying the /. layout, but copying that green color? Hmmm.... ;-)

Or perhaps systems should be more secure by default? Programmers should write better code, if you ask me. And these crazy companies putting out Linux distributions should make them much more secure by default. Sure, a good distribution won't be perfect, but it will be much better than having another few million near-clueless individuals with a Linux box, with really poor security.

Good read. I mean, it shows what a buffer overflow looks like in a log, how cool is that? :)

Actually, rootprompt.org seems like a pretty cool site too, despite overuse of /. green.
