Linux vs Windows Viruses

An article about Linux and Windows viruses and why Linux is more secure when against automated e-mail bourne viruses...To mess up a Linux box, you need to work at it; to mess up your Windows box, you just need to work on it, writes SecurityFocus columnist Scott Granneman.

PortForwarding (again?) ... but this time .. through SOCKS Proxy!!!

i've juz discovered this yesterday ... by combining socksify ( ) and portfwd ( ) you can get a local port on your system to be forwarded to another system through SOCKS proxy ...the concept is simple .... 1st install dante socksify and edit its configuration in /etc/socks.conf ... then ...install portfwd ... create a config file according to your requirement that maps to a remote system ... then ... run this command
#socksify portfwd -c [yourportfwdconfig]
after a successfull execution .. you'll get a port on your local system forwarded to the remote system through a SOCKS proxy ... Enjoy~ TIPS: you can also use Tsocks, Proxify, Proxychains as the TCP wrapper to replace socksify ... if you use Proxychains .. you can also forward ports through a chain of proxies
