can you answer these questions?
I am interested in installing debian again after not using it for a while
because I had problems with trying to use it. I read on your news pages
about the break-in and this is a small concern to me as this could
potentially be used by anyone that wants to access the system and since my
knowledge of linux/debian is not that great I would like to know some
things that I can do in order to close off any ports etc to prevent this
Can you provide any help in regards to this and trying to understand
how/what methods this person(s) used is not all that clear to me appart
from he used a pw sniffer but how did they sniff the pwds to begin with -
that is why I would appreciate any info in regards to what I can lock down
to prevent something like this happening or if there is monitoring software
that I can install that will at least inform me of something like this
Thanks in advance to your reply to this email.
