    Ooooh, hack me daddio.

    We are running 2.4.25-ow1. Dropped grsec on this latest update as the process killing features were....well, killing processes (named and spamd). OpenWall is a nice light security patch - highly recommend it.

    It's exploitable. Someone can get root on your box. Shouldn't a "Fully Managed Dedicated Server" provider know that?

    2.6.4 ~ + always up to date with the latest releases. Otherwise the RHE latest.

    Reason: Game servers = high performance needs
