    UNIX - Linux - BSD Security Tips

    This is a thread I've decided to do just really to get a feel for all the ways people here lock down their *NIX machines. If you use any form of UNIX, and lock it down, reply with what steps you generally take, and share how they work.

    I'll be replying as well to pop in with what I've done before, and what I do now. So anyway, you can reply with whatever style you'd like, just eb sure to list the following:

    -OS

    -Platform

    -Details

    That's all for now, have a lot of fun.

    I'll ring Cisco for you when you figure out how to read dates.

    I don't know about everyone else, but I got a message about this thread, and now, the post I was given a message because of, is gone. I don't remember half of this crap, but for the newbie who was whining about what I said about OpenBSD, and said what I posted was nothing, and that I'm wrong:

    Prove it. If you don't like me, I don't care, so take your best shot. This thread is old as crap, and I don't care if you don't agree with what I said. Prove what you think you can, but Theo is an ******* and a half, has zero people skills, and the fact that everyone says "Well OpenBSD is made just for servers and has no root exploits in the default install".... So?

    DOS has no exploits in the default install, I don't see people lining up to use that crap either. I don't like OpenBSD, and it's no secret. I'm pretty loud about it. If you want to get into it over OSs that are made purely for Server use only and NO desktop use, and, say how secure they are, then why not toss Trusted Solaris into the mix? Why not toss Trusted BSD into the mix? Those are just as much a part of BSD as OpenBSD is, but you don't have to put up with the **** Theo throws in.

    I do NOT care about Theo; He has a huge attitude problem, he annoys me, and he's sometimes a total moron. I've personally seen, with my own eyes, telling someone from the FreeBSD Security Team that they were full of ****, and blah blah blah they didn't know what they were talking about, and more.

    There was a FreeBSD Security Patch Released, and they credited OpenBSD with finding it, and Theo replied to this, saying that they were talking out of their asses, and that they didn't know a thing about what they were saying and that the security flaw in question didn't exist and that they were stupid and didn't know what they were talking about.

    The FreeBSD Security Officer simply replied, and instead of saying a word, he copied and pasted the OpenBSD Security patch notes to the email, and nothing more.

    Theo, of course, instead of apologizing for being a douche bag, said nothing. Yea. He's a dick. Get over it.

    No sign of any deleted post either? I guess it might be something to do with deleting a spam post before it is approved?

    My guess is it was deleted too. I still have the Email I was sent about this thread, so I could check what the reply actually said, but it doesn't seem to show up as a Deleted post either; You know how when a post gets Deleted it shows up for us? It doesn't even show that. Which is odd. But whatever lol.

    I think that it happens if a post is flagged for moderation and you delete it as spam, rather than approving it or moving it. Those deleted posts just seem to vanish, as far as I have seen.

    My guess is that the actual post may trigger the notification system before the post is approved?

    You are quite right about normal posts, in that if the user or moderator deletes or edits it, then it shows up in the thread.

    Gore uses "Mandatory" as a username. You know... because he was told his username was mandatory during setup.
