Default How high is the level of the Fedora Vmware image Security?

Hi guys,

I would like to test the fedora 7 vmware image online and the question is: How high is the level of the Fedora Vmware image Security?

The firewall is disabled and the SELINUX too.

Thanks
Michelangelo T.

The vmware image is secure.

1) It does not run any unneeded services that should be hidden by a firewall. To enable the firewall, just enable it in ISPConfig under management > services.

2) SELinux is disabled on many servers and most linux distributions do not even come with SELinux. the problem with SELinus is, that it not onyl protects, it also prevents many nescessary software from running at all.

Where did you download this VM from? Are they any other more up-to-date ones than the one on vmware.com?

Thanks.

I think he means the VMware image that comes with http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_server_fedora7
But you must be a subscriber (see http://www.howtoforge.com/membership ) before you can download it.
