comment Is there a windows equivalent to chroot?
Windows is one of the least secure platforms i have ever had the privilege to hack. No one should be using anything by Microsoft if they care about security. A chroot is the "bare minimum" security system we can use to try and lock down this joke of a platform.

"I'm not sure you will gain anything on Windows by chrooting" Why? Is this like trying to patch one hole in a net? I am well aware that windows is one of the least secure platforms used in modern times, are you saying that fixing architectural security flaws in windows is just hopeless?

@syneticon-dj also a good consideration. That is definitely an attack surface to worry about, even if you are blocking all incoming traffic.

comment Repairing yum's repositories on a RHEL5
Yeah i have come to the conclusion that YUM is complete garbage and i'll avoid RHEL as much as i can. as for CentOS, i think that project is dead, they haven't released an update in a few years.

comment Warning flagged by the 'rkhunter'
Linux kernel land rootkits are DEAD. Hypervisor rootkits still work and you don't have one, and you can't detect it with rkhunter.
