Yesterday I had an idea: maybe it could make good, if hackers around here will join to help sysadmins, who's servers(on UNIX-like systems) were cracked: to find out how it was made and how to prevent that in future.
I described this situation here
and would like to hear feedback on this topic: would you
mind to help admins of compromised systems to find out the source of problem and maybe find some previously unknown bugs, if everything seems to be correctly and securely configured, though it was cracked anyway?
I suggest to make a special place(say, subforum in "Security") for this kind of discussions. Or, probably, moderators can make a "social group" here, where hackers, willing to help will be helping, and make a sticky post on "Security" forum pointing users with that problem there?
I probably wouldn't asked this if I wasn't caring about forum: say, if we are going to solve each user's problem of that kind in his thread on security forum, we will probably be running from actual topic to investigation: it's offtopic. I think stuff like this needs extra attention and should be located in a separate place, dedicate to that. So it will be easier to search: just search in subforum.
Moderators's comments are most welcome! Do you think it will be useful?
Thanks for your attention, everybody!
