Slackware: installing from HDD using CD .iso files

What's wrong with the terminal?

Posted 10-04-2009 at 09:59 AM by DragonSlayer48DX

[RANT] I get a little tired sometimes of hearing people complain about using the terminal, so here's my story:

A couple years ago, the Automatic Updater on my daughter's XP machine stopped working. Attempting to update manually only gave an error number, so, I contacted Microsoft, and guess what? I had to open the [B]Run[/B] dialog box, and [I]type a lengthy string of commands and parameters[/I] to fix the problem! Imagine that! So for all of you who think Windows is 'CLI-free', guess...

Logwatch, webserver logs, PHP malarky

As I'm seeing more questions about (badly coded) web applications spawning rogue processes I wonder why people don't read their logs. Attacks require reconnaissance so keeping an eye on anything that looks like a prelude enables you to take measures. And please spend time updating when updates are released, installing apps properly (like not leaving the installation files around when docs remind you not to), hardening (any IDS, mod_security, Gotroot rulesets, mod_evasive or equivalent, PHPIDS, Suhosin,...
