[seul-edu] RE: ICQ and Security
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...
