Linux Server Security

Starting in 1843, a steady progression of emigrants began travelling the Oregon Trail. Thousands came west. Some said it was Manifest Destiny and the will of God that America should expand from sea to sea. Others saw it as opportunity. The 2000 miles trail was not without its trials – confused mapmakers and wheelbarrows that put human endurance to test. The domination of Linux in the server market (73% of Web Servers run Linux, at last count), and its en route saga, in many ways draw a striking semblance to the Oregon Trail. And much like the Oregon Trail, its path has been ridden with perils (read Security) that were partly shielded by Mormon handcarts and caravans. O'Reilly deserves credit for capturing on the cover, a typical family caravan on the Oregon Trail. So, does the book end up teaching you how to put together a typical caravan or a hack-free Mormon handcart? Read the rest of this review to find out.

Stealth attack undermines Vista defences

Root cause analysisResearchers have demonstrated how to bypass security protections in order to inject potentially hostile code into the kernel of prototype versions of Windows.

[For Admins running a heterogeneous environment. Note: the researcher suggests this does not mean Vista is inherently. Maybe she should have just stuck with saying it's more secure than previous versions. That's been the sound byte for years. - dcparris]
