For i do know that unlike microsoft 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.

Red Hat has an update utility muck like the "windows update" function.
On your gnome menu under program - system I think there are entries for the red hat update.
Can't remember the actual names for them, I'm at windows right now
You register with red hat and then compare your software with their latest rpm-files. Just choose from the available packages and download.
The packages are downloaded and installed.

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...

Yup i have done all that and even have cut off the connectivity temporarily .Thanks for all the help, and yes it's true microsoft would never be comparable to Linux in every way ,that is the reason why i choose linux. Even for my firewall i'm using Linux. By the way can you guys help me out on my email 2 ,currently i'm using Qmail as i hav posted it before enquiring about it but till now no one response. (This is the thread that i've sent before -
2 weeks back my qmail hdd crash but it manage to be recovered. and so i created a link to all users (for e.g ln -s ~useraccount/Mailbox user account) and it works fine i guess coz nobody is complaining. Then a few user ask me how come they cannot receive any mails but they are able to sent it out. So i checked on the linux server and all the account shows there is a link but the funny thing is how come most of the user could receive and sent as per normal but not some of them? By the way i have a email virus scan server and it shows that the emails had been sent to the affected users account .So it really puzzles me where the message is being directed. I hope somebody could help me out on this. Your assistance is deeply appreciated. Thanks everyone. ) Once again thank you very much.



P.S. - Linux the best!!!!!!
