Linux Journal Announces Spamtrap Contest
The contest rules are as follows. Contestants should create a new spamtrap e-mail address and attempt to acquire as many spam e-mail messages as possible in one week (7 days). The address may be publicized in any manner except for subscribing or opting-in to mailing lists. Contestants should submit how many spam messages they received, what they did with the messages and how they publicized the address. The Linux Journal staff will choose one grand-prize winner, who will receive a Lego Mindstorm Robotics Invention System.
"We want to start 2003 on a purely fun note" commented Carlie Fairchild, VP of Marketing & Sales. "A benefit to the fun, though, will be that the Linux community exchanges its brilliant ideas about understanding, controlling and getting rid of spam."
All entries should be sent via e-mail to:Linux Journal Spamtrap Contestcontest@linuxjournal.com
The contest deadline is January 31, 2003. For more information about the contest please send an e-mail to email@example.com.

One easily available solution to avoid eavesdroppers’ attempts is SSH. But, its wide adoption during the past 21 years has made it a target for attackers, so hardening your system properly is a must.
Additionally, in highly regulated markets, you must comply with specific operational requirements, proving that you conform to standards and even that you have included new mandatory authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication. In this ebook, I discuss SSH and how to configure and manage it to guarantee that your network is safe, your data is secure and that you comply with relevant regulations.Get the Guide
