    On a traditional Linux system, permissions and access control to files and processes are controlled completely by users. root is all powerful, and programs inherit a user's rights, meaning that when a program is compromised, that user is also compromised. In cases of a program run as root, that means the attacker has access to the whole system.

    In the SELinux method, access is provided by a security policy set by the administrator and enforced by the system. There is no "all powerful root user".

    Debian and Gentoo have already adopted such a method some time ago. However if you do not use one of thoose distributions it is a good idea to consider implementing SELinux if you maintain a server, or if you are responsible for maintaining a secure Linux enviorment.

    You may download SELinux from The Narional Security Agency

    I only recommend this for novice Linux users.

    You are wrong. Windows 3.1 is more secure than any o.s.

    Uhh no I just 0wned a win 3.1 box a few days ago, DOS 3.3 was giving me shit big time though....Microsoft don&#39;t play around when it comes to security that&#39;s for sure&#33;

    I wouldn&#39;t even try to mess with a Windows box...
