The four most common Unix security mistakes
I was not going to put this one up until I saw the paragraph I pulled out for the pull quote. How true this is.
"Just about everybody does this - loading unneeded software on exposed servers or implementing SANS and switches where they're not needed. Every piece of software you add to a system, whether running on the main processor or on associated gear, adds vulnerabilities. The rule is simple: if it's not necessary, don't load it, don't use it, and don't worry about it." The four most common Unix security mistakes | Paul Murphy | ZDNet.com
