question on this?
maybe i am more disillusioned than i thought but if i patch and update how can
i be as vuknerable as on windows?
i run a program called killerwall as my firewall
it is a script that uses ipchains or iptables .i chose iptables because of my
reading and thinking this was safer.
i dont understand how rootkits work tho and my reading has not helped my
understanding of this very much.
i dont do downloads except with acceptable ftp sites .no music/movies stuff.in
fact my only downloads have have been with urpmi?
can rootkits be used this way?
apologizing for my ignorance ahead of time but i am hoping to learn
