UnixReview.com says, "The author doesn't leave any stone unturned. He deals with the distinctly menacing sounding daemonized attack scripts, the pros and cons of encryption, running PHP in safe mode, and problems you may encounter when using open source applications. However, by showing how to thwart attacks, it indirectly shows how to make them.

techbookreport.com states, "Slamming Spam is a book devoted to the sharp-end of anti-spam activity. Written primarily for system administrators, it's focused on offering practical guidance and implementation support for a wide range of anti-spam technologies. Aside from a foray into some of the technicalities of Bayesian filtering, there's not much in the way of theory or policy as the authors focus instead on the hands-on side of things."

A software collection is simply a set of RPMs whose contents are isolated from the rest of your system such that they do not modify, overwrite or otherwise conflict with anything in the main Fedora repositories. This allows you install multiple versions of a software stack side-by-side, without them interfering with one another. More can be read about this mechanism on the software collections website. The Eclipse Luna software collection lives in a separate yum repository, which must be configured by clicking on this link to install the release package. Read more
