Re: The best way to run a hidden service: one or two computers?

How do external attackers get root access on a Linux system, and how do they 
then communicate with the system as root, like listing directories and 
changing configuration files as you would have done in a shell, when they're 
basically limited to a hidden website with the browsers address bar and 
maybe a few input forms? It gets more sensible when we're talking about 
default and open websites with the server's true IP addresses and ports out 
in the public, and exploitation of SSH servers. I'm just curious about that.

BTW how do you reply to specific posts? All I'm doing here is replying to 
my own original post. Thanks.
