Security Linux News for Sep 23, 2001

  • LinuxWorld: 10 minutes to an iptables-based Linux firewall (Sep 23, 2001, 22:02)

These diseased, ill-maintained beasts from the land of insufficient light are now trying to infest our stable, secure, long running, easy-to-use, well-behaved Linux machines. (Can you tell I'm a bit irritated?) This has led me to start editing some of our firewall rules, and in the process, consider that, as we have recently migrated to the 2.4 kernel, some people may be interested in how to create a Linux 2.4 kernel-based firewall quickly."
