Review: Ubuntu Unleased 2010 Edition: Covering 9.10 and 10.4
Source: LinuxSecurity Contributors - Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Compiling a reference book of more than 800 pages, plus a complete DVD distributed with the book, is a huge project, even for four experienced Linux veterans such as those that wrote Ubuntu Unleased: 2010 Edition.

Review: Linux Firewalls
Posted by Administrator   
Security is at the forefront of everyone's mind and a firewall can be an integral part of your Linux defense. But is Michael's Rash's "Linux Firewalls," the newest release from NoStarchPress, up for the challenge? Eckie S. here at Linuxsecurity.com gives you the low-down on this newest addition to the Linux security resource library and how it's one of the best ways to crack down on attacks to your Linux network.
 
Review: Computer Security Basics 2nd Edition
Posted by Administrator   
In a perfect world, a book like this wouldn't be necessary anymore, except for the new entries into security. Businesses and organizations would have all gotten the point by now. And yet, gaps in security, flaws in policy and general complacency have made an overview of security just as important today as it was five years ago. In a review of this second edition of Computer Security Basics, however, Robert Slade sums up a resource that could have had potential, but instead, fails to live up to its predecessor.

 
Review: Mod-Security 2.5 by Magnus Mischel
Source: Eric Lubow - Posted by Dave Wreski   
Thanks to Eric Lubow for contributing this great review.

Being a SysAdmin (as most of you who read this blog regularly know), I love to look at logs to solve problems. If there is an issue, the first thing I always do is look at the logs to see what went wrong. Even when I am writing programs, I build debugging in from the beginning to make sure I know what’s going on at all times (especially when something goes wrong).
