Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

"This is the official release announcement for IPFire 2.15 Core Update 84. This is a release that fixes some security issues in the GNU Bash package which are commonly known as 'Shellshock' and it comes with more fixes and minor feature enhancements. As you may have already seen on the news, the Shellshock issues made more people look into the code of the default shell of many *nix systems. Those people found many more programming errors and provided fixes for them which have been applied in this release. IPFire is now shipping GNU Bash 4.3.30 and the companion library readline in version 6.3. There have been some denial of service issues in the Squid web proxy which have been fixed in release 3.4.8. Those are of minor severity only and quite possibly cannot be exploited to inject code. The firewall got a couple of new features which I explained in detail in a post on the IPFire planet."
