It's been about three years since I woke up one morning and discovered my Web/mail server was rooted. Thinking back, I must have assumed that just running Linux was enough to keep me out of harm's way. These days I am not so cocky. I try to keep current with security patches for the apps I run. I don't run services I don't need or use. And there is a firewall between me and the wild. One thing I haven't made a part of my regular routine -- not yet, at least -- is checking for rootkits on a regular basis. That may be about to change, since I found a nifty little project called rootkit hunter. compelet story
