Focus-Linux

Focus-Linux is meant to be a resource for Linux users and administrators, looking for that extra little bit of help in securing Linux, using Linux in security roles, and getting additional information about the latest in Linux vulnerabilities. Interested in the latest kernel modifications, and want to know what people think of them? Needs tips on configuring IPFW? How to defend against the latest security problems affecting Linux? Questions like these are all expected and encouraged. The Focus-Linux list is meant to address those questions which are inappropriate or off topic for Bugtraq. In addition, important announcements related to breaking vulnerabilities will be posted, with the details needed to ensure that you have the up to the minute information you need to keep your Linux machines secure.
