ssh


Hi I have this simple question that keeps on bugging my mind. If ssh is stopped on a linux server. Is there still a way for a hacker to break in to the system? Firewall is dropped except for ports needed for communicaton.

Well yes of course there could be. SSH is only relevant to SSH based exploits. Stopping it won't impact any non-SSH based exploits.
