Closed for now, to prevent too many scattered and irrelevant answers. @James, feel free to ping me or one of the mods to reopen the question, if you change it to a specific question that can be answered.

Hmm, dangling pointers is a good point to add. Stack smashing and such is already covered, and I dont have time to get into testing, CR, etc. Anyways that wouldn't be in this session (as I said this is the practical, how-to coding part - anything else is done seperately).

@James, still not the place for it - SE is not a tutorials site, it's focused Q&A. Of course, if you get stuck on something specific we very much welcome any and all specific questions... In the meantime, why dont you search this site for pointers? The [ education ] tag specifically might help you find some good reading materials, books, sites, etc.

comment How to submit credit card info to a separate server/website (PCI)
Only (nitpicking) comment: I'm not a QSA - even if you were a QSA it wouldn't matter, as you are not his QSA, and whomever that is gets to make the calls anyway :D

Welcome to the site! Are you asking for tutorial on linux? That's not the topic of this site - you could try over at serverfault - but I seriously doubt you'd get an instant tutorial, SE is not built or intended for that. If you're asking a specific question - it's not clear from what you wrote...

Thanks, that is indeed a very good approach, and the one I usually take with training series. However in this case I'm looking for the specific techniques, relevant for each specific language - the general principles etc are done seperately, in prior sessions.

Heh, nowadays it's questionable if using SecurId will actually increase your security, or decrease it ;)
