On my daily rounds, I pick up all kinds of good lil’ tidbits for article ideas. Most of them are relating to Windows flaws or Anti Mac articles, but none of them really cut the mustard. However, today I am going to pound my fist against the wall at those of US that thought we had less to worry about. Yeah, we are Linux advocates, and we overlook security sometimes. Today I was introduced to a statement by UnrealIRCd detailing a trojan packaged with their IRCd (Internet Relay Chat deamon) for Linux. This obviously represents one FATAL flaw with the Linux faithful; the blind trust we have for the most of the Linux community and the lack of attention we pay to what we are installing or downloading. This time, it leads us to a backdoor that grants an evildoer the ability to run ANY command with the user’s privileges running the daemon.
