Breaching Fort Apache.org

septembre 3, 2009 Laisser un commentaire

hi

Quick post about this breaching of apache.org.

In fact, it highights a point I was discussing quite recently : OS diversity. Indeed, speaking about Apache security strengths, we can read :
For example, core servers on the network employed a variety of hardened operating systems, including CentOS, FreeBSD-7, and Solaris 10, creating a diverse target that made it hard to attackers to escalate privileges.

The matter is about visualization and the diversity of underlying OS : when security matters, diversity does as well. Something which is sometime forgotten, I fear, because of willingness to standardize everything on some technology stack… So, admins : beware ! 😉
