Internet Security Issues Solved Lessons learned
I am working on a project in my e-commerce class.
The project has me go to a network administrator and ask what problems security problems they had and how they solved them. My school is a WIndows Server 2003 network setup. It is no challenge to studying the security issues here.
I would like to ask the members of this forum for some help as I want to write a little more on the subject.
I have been reading about 2 main issues in linux security:
insecure mysql passwords
How have any of you dealt with these two problems successfully?
Are rootkits an issue given the plethora of linux distributions from any number of sources? ( I ask this because, one distribution I use has several programs which access the net doing who knows what. I uninstalled one program, KWeather which was a real pain and I saw no use in having it. )
Are there other major security problems unique to Linux/Unix systems?
You help will be appreciated.

Ouch. I've read this reply on other forums. Never thought I would get it. :)
The assignment required that I ask a network administrator what security problems they had and how they they worked toward solving them.
I am not doing any research myself, only recording what is told me.
Which is why I am asking here. I could read all the posts to this forum (I note that the issues I brought up have been dealt with). I just like to get someone's personal experience in detecting, and correcting a security problem with a linux system.
