We talk a lot about patching on this podcast, and the reason for that is because a lot of organizations don’t seem to handle this important aspect of security very well. A recent patching report from the Ponemon institute seems to reflect this, and the stats regarding patching definitely don’t look good. In this episode of Enterprise Linux Security, Jay and Joao discuss some of the findings within this report.
In this episode of Awesome Linux Tools, the spotlight is on Lynis – a really awesome utility you can use to get a better understanding of the overall security hygiene of your server. In this video, Jay will show you how to install it, and also how to run an audit.
