[seul-edu] RE: ICQ and Security

Flame me,
but what is the advantage of using ICQ over a classic IRC client ?

Concerning netbus or any windows trojan , they don't run under linux,
so there is no risk at all...
But what you then have is "idiot attack"* like having the passwd file send 
or any other classic social engineering attack...

Anyway a safely configured linux is way more secure than any windows box...
you might want to check Bastille-Linux which is a "patch" for RedHat in 
order to get a secure linux for use in education:

* by "idiot attack" I mean someone tell you to do that and since you're not 
aware it's dangerous, you do it...
