I bought a couple of really good books on linux security recently. The titles are 'real world security for linux' and 'maximum linux security'. Both are very good books and am getting to learn quite a bit from them...

A v-good book that covers up to the 2.2 Kernel, is called Hacking Linux Exposed.

Not recommended for advance Linux security people.

It covers a very good current range of security problems on Linux systems, with good examples and website references.
