Unix security info (NOT mine)
I was going to do some stuff on Unix security but while I was researching I found these pages and thought man,I can't compete with this right now, but the security tutorials forum has very small amounts of Unix in it and I wanted to add to it, but well, I found these pages and thought damn this is great. I can't take credit for it obviously, but again, to help people who are looking in this section of AO for info :
Let me know or reply if you find something you think should be here. Again none of this is my work.

Nice websites, thanks for the post
An ancient chinese man once told me: \"The hotter the tea, the bigger the wang.\"
My tea is extra hot.

The first two links are ****. No offense. The first on is a link to a bunch of late 80's, early 90's papers, somewhat outdated IMHO. And the second one is just tools of the sort you'll find at any security site. (COTSE for example)
The third appears to be the CERT Unix security checklist. Good document. Worth reading.
Specialist... Shut up...

something beyond a few URL links, no one here lets new guys get away with that and compaired to me thats exactly what most of you people are.
Don't practice "security by obscurity;" that is, don't assume that users are stupid. Some users are smarter than your assumptions.

OK, I just woke up heh. Anyway, thanks much, I know the one was dated, but I wanted to post it because well, even though it's dated, it had good info for the time it was released. I've read a lot of papers that were dated to see how things have changed over the years which is why I left the link in tact.
The other I agree is very good and I'm hoping to add more Unix security.

Why is this thread extremely negative? Blah, oh well... Anyways, I think although the information COULD be out-dated however useful. I for one am all for information of any kind at any time.

OK WTH? Gore gets a postive AP, the thread has a positve AP...where is the extremely negative coming from?
There is only one constant, one universal, it is the only real truth: causality. Action. Reaction. Cause and effect...There is no escape from it, we are forever slaves to it. Our only hope, our only peace is to understand it, to understand the 'why'. 'Why' is what separates us from them, you from me. 'Why' is the only real social power, without it you are powerless.

I think because the Spec had something to say to gore and d0pp and I posted to say something to him, and then someone else ( I guess..never saw him negged ) came along and negged him and then he packed up his post and left...so I withdrew my post as it was no longer relevant...second time today that's happened...in two separate threads...but gore wasn't the object of the other comments he made.
Why is this thread extremely negative?
Hope that solves the mystery.

I saw this and was reminded of some other information I hope adds to what you have Gore:
http://www.sans.org/top20/ -- Covering both Windows and Unix - could serve as a jump-off point for other insights.
http://www.sans.org/rr/whitepapers/unix/ -- Reading room from SANS for Unix stuff.
http://www.sans.org/rr/whitepapers/linux/ -- Samey-same from SANS on Linux stuff
Also, and as you can tell, none of this is mine, I just came across it and thought "it is good!"
I just checked the links again and they all work.

I removed computernerd's post to be able to re-open this thread again... so now yours doesn't make sense anymore, Eg
This must be the most complicated thread I've seen in a while
