I've had a long session of improving security on my home server yesterday.
I never actually made a permanent and correct monitoring with rkhunter, but when I ran through all it's options, I finally came to realize this is just awesome, it just OWNZ! Greets to developers team!!!
Some guys from LQ Security forum really are the experts. I always knew that, but just again, in case you read my blog, I'd like to thank you all, the members of "online security team" of LQ, you know...
