Lock Code Circular3

Regardless of the Linux distribution you’re using, staying on top of the latest security advisories is essential in maintaining an updated, secure Linux system.

Threat actors primarily focus on known security bugs in their attacks, as exploiting these flaws is relatively easy compared to zero-day vulnerabilities for which no patches are available. By tracking the security advisories issued by your distro, you can apply updates as soon as they become available to mitigate the serious risk that known vulnerabilities pose to the security and integrity of your system.

LinuxSecurity makes staying informed of the latest updates simple and convenient by tracking security advisories for 13 popular distros and offering the ability to create a user profile and customize your advisories based on the distro(s) you use. In addition to providing a comprehensive, strategic way for admins to ensure that they receive the updates and guidance they need to keep their systems secure, LinuxSecurity offers extensive training and documentation to help them troubleshoot issues and expand their skill set.
