i have a very stupid question about the passwords in mini-
distributions. Please don't laugh about me, i'm like Forest Gump ...
Ok, I wanna know, if mini-distributions (like Tinycore Linux,
MicroLinux) are secure? I mean, often they have no password-login at
start, instead you type in:
and you have full access to the system. But how it looks from the
other side, the internet? Can a hacker see from outside, that i'm
logged in as root without password, and in worst case, can he do the
same? IMHO on the machine must run a telnet server, without password;
but i'm not sure.
