Software

If you are an early adopter, one of those like me who likes to try and experiment as early as possible with these fascinating new media technologies, you are already probably familiar with Flock, the social browser built on top of the FireFox engine.

Well, it requires the attacker to break into the target system by "brute-forcing SSH credentials". Wait. What? To get this you need someone to log in to your server!? Read more

Linux hosting is everywhere. Whether you're looking for a simple shared hosting account or a powerful dedicated server, the chances are that you'll be offered a Linux-based option first. In many cases, you might not care. If your hosting needs are simple, you'll probably choose an account based on the allocated web space, bandwidth and similar features – the operating system is so far down most people's priority list that often it's not even mentioned in comparison tables.
