Chapter 12. Unix Attacks

 <  Day Day Up  >  

Unix has long been a favorite target for all sorts of hackers, including the malicious and the simply curious . While the old mainframes running VMS and OS/390 had sophisticated security and auditing features, few of them were exposed to the direct wrath of modern Internet threats. Modern Unix is often attacked by (and falls victim to) new exploits, near-forgotten old exploits, and vulnerabilities resulting from misconfiguration. In this chapter, we delve into the vast realm of local, remote, and denial-of-service Unix attacks.
