Linux continues to gain acceptance as a high-level operating system that's ready for serious corporate enterprise-level computing. When running Internet or file servers, Linux is more reliable, more flexible, more cost-effective, and even faster in some cases than Windows 2000/NT. This means that more and more companies are running Linux on their Web and internal file servers, and that more and more network administrators, used to how things work on Windows 2000/NT servers, will need a crash course on the vulnerabilities of Linux systems, and which holes they're going to need to plug in order to protect themselves from outside attacks. Maximum Linux Security, Second Edition fills this need.
