Hardening Slackware
 
Could anybody point me in the direction of a good tutorial for hardening Slack in newer releases?

I'm finding some useful stuff from earlier releases but nothing for 10+.

And do you have any general tip to share on the subject. Particularly firewall configuration which I am finding confusing.

When I click on this link it says this is a binary file
and wants to save or open it. What is it please?

In fact it's a text file, with no extension...

Good links, thanks.

Yes, very good links ;) I just did some change in my crontab after reading the first
(especially the one for cleanup tmp files, simple but I did not think of that)

I have been looking everywhere for Slack-Hardening myself.
