Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

PLEASE NOTE: All LQ Rules apply to the General forum. Flame wars, personal attacks, hostility, insults and behavior of that nature will not be tolerated. Differing opinions are one of the things that make this site great, but to benefit from differing opinions the discourse must happen respectfully and thoughtfully... without insult or personal attack. Members who are unable or unwilling to participate in General under those parameters will not be permitted to do so. If you see behavior of this nature please report it.
Given the original message was written in english language, most likely the encrypted text is in english too. Looking at the only phrase ending with a question mark, you can easily guess what the first word in this sentence is. This should give you a clue about the encryption algorithm used. Note also the exclamation mark at the beginning of some words. In many scripting language it means negation or inversion, this suggests that the algorithm is reversed for some words. Do you need other advices?
Passionate hacker with security expertise for dynamic R&D oriented company
Who you are:
Maybe you're a seasoned software developer with years in the industry, or maybe you're a high school dropout who ditched class to read computer books and write exploits, but in either case, late nights programming for the sheer fun of it are familiar memories, and you have serious interest and at least some knowledge of computer security. You love eloquent solutions to complex problems as much as 'normal' people love gourmet food and great sex; you relish in picking up new languages, and you see yourself moving up in the engineering track, not the management track. You prefer developing against open source libraries to closed source libraries. You prefer open source UNIXes to Windows, but maybe you can't help but admire certain aspects of the way the Windows kernel was designed. You know that the IP header comes before the TCP header and that that's where the IP address goes, and know what RFC stands for, at the very least.
1/3rd research (along with the rest of your team) and 2/3rds software design, implementation and testing. You would be working on a small team of security software engineers. We are researching new ways to reverse engineer kernel and process data structures to detect the presence of an attacker and analyze his or her behavior. A typical day's work might be, reading about and reverse engineering the Vista heap, implementing experimental code to detect exploits directed against this allocator, getting coffee with your co-workers and talking about your new discoveries while they talk about theirs (and you struggle to get a word in edgewise), and then writing some actual intrusion analysis code.
Please email a detailed cover letter in your response to [Diana's Email Address], telling us about your technical background, a bit about your life history and interests, and answering the following question (you have to 'decrypt' it first =)
