Documentation "The recent, unprecedented growth in automated attacks, especially in the form of worms, viruses, and Trojans, has really amplified the ramifications of system vulnerabilities," notes Bauer. "Since these crop up relentlessly and unpredictably, it's more important than ever that any Internet-connected Linux system be not only patched, but very carefully configured to contain both anticipated and unanticipated security failures.

"Put another way," Bauer adds, "the bad news is that the patch rat race is futile, and sooner or later your system will be exposed to an unpatched security hole; the good news is that there are lots of other things you can do to prevent one hole being used to compromise your entire system. My book explains what those techniques are and how to use them."
