Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Bugtraq: Oracle security

Posted by Jade Rubick on
Although I lack the security experience to beef up the install guide for chrooting and these kernel patches, I'd be happy to

1) be a guinea pig for any install guides which include improved security sections. I'll follow the directions step by step and give feedback.

2) open this server up to other to try and hack into, so we could test the security of a default OpenACS installation.

This probably is a little cart ahead of the horse, because the install guide hasn't been released yet for OACS 4. But I'd rather put in the time now than clean up the mess after getting hacked in the future.

I'm just getting back into the community here, so hopefully I'm not stepping on anyone's toes here.
