Attrition Advisories (A.L.E.R.T.)
Denial of Service
Attrition Newbie Section moves to Unixgeeks.org
The above sections are provided to help
newcomers learn the basics of computer and network security as well as provide
new resources for the veterans too. With thousands of web sites claiming to
be devoted to teaching, very few have real content. They link to the same
few sites or same old whitepapers.
ATTRITION staff will continue teaching and providing new information
to the public. The information is provided as is. Make no mistake,
these are not 'hacker lessons'. If at any point we feel you are asking
questions in an attempt to illegally trespass into another computer
system, we will not help you. Further, we recommend you learn the following
sections in the order we list them.
Is there a topic you are having a hard time finding good information
on? We take suggestions on what topics are covered here. Feel free to
mail firstname.lastname@example.org with any ideas, corrections, suggestions,
