For i do know that unlike micro$oft where there is a security loopholes i just need to download service pack 2 to it but how about Redhat ,how do i stop intruders or hackers. And i do feel it's no point of me downloading a service pack to it if it's not gonna do anything.Thank you really need the feedback.
well, i would turn the machine off first.. if its being attacked, and you don't know why, then turn it off or cut off network connectivity to it. you might not need a download to fix your problem, sounds to me you need to read about iptables/ipchains.. and security within redhat or linux itself. you should look into a firewall possibly... but i doubt just a download will help you, linux is as secure as you make it... try reading some of the howto's at www.linuxdoc.org
for security, firewalls and such to get a better security aspect of linux and how to make it more secure.
and a service pack for windows won't ever work for linux...
