The Evils of 777 and Other Security War Stories

This topic was originally scheduled for July, but has been bumped to August. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Have you ever installed an open source product and the instructions told you to set a folder or file to 777 (world writable)? Probably so, but this is a major no-no in terms of keeping your server secure. Hear Joel explain why this is so bad and how to properly configure your server to make this insecure setting unnecessary. Time will also be available for you to share your security war stories, as well as ask questions that may currently be stumping you on the security front.

    Great find on the new speaker Joel. Hopefully this will be a future topic for the next PUG still.
