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.

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

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)

Thats still only for 8.0 and below.

Note: - Line numbers correspond to the rc.scripts in Slackware 8.0
