there are a few things that all should be aware of, that were not
mentioned last night at all
for starters checksum your /etc/passwd /etc/group /etc/shadow
/usr/bin/su and other important files on a daily basis, you might not
notice any changes in these files.
also for any networking equipment, including printers, turn off or
change the snmp public and private stings, i can and have reconfigured
networks and printers (HP is notorious for this) that were left with
private and the private SNMP community name
on a side note, it is possible to download your phone book if you have a
bluetooth enabled phone. its been done.
for those of you that have bsd running at home and are not using it as a
mail server, turn off sendmail, postfix or whatever, and start it every
x minutes to flush the queue via cron, there is no reason to keep it
running all the time if you are not receiving mail on this box,
something like this in your cron tab should work */5 * * * *
also omnicom/omnigroup (the second largest advertising firm in the
world) uses freebsd almost exclusively now.
