Rackspace releases Knark antidote to Linux community

Author: JT Smith

From PR Newswire: Rackspace Managed Hosting, a leading
provider of managed Internet hosting services, today announced the release of
"Alamo," a solution to Knark, which is a lethal weapon in the Linux computer
hacker's arsenal.
Knark is a type of cracking weapon often referred to as a Trojan horse --
a program that hides malicious or harmful code inside seemingly harmless data.
Knark is used by hackers to cover their tracks, making it virtually impossible
to detect any kind of malicious activity until it is too late. After
infiltrating the server, a hacker can insert Knark into the deepest level of
the Linux operating system and use it to shoot down any attempts at discovery.
