    Have a look at www.sastk.org this is a toolkit to help secure slackware.
    Might help you to start secure your machines better.

    Subject: Making ps secure

    Hi,
        I am running slackware linux and i notice that on freebsd and some other
    distros when u type ps auxf it only outputs the processes your running and
    not anyone else..

    I was wondering how they made it do this..

    Ive also noticed that in a users home dir .bash_history is owned by the
    user.. But if the user trys to remove it or chmod it to a diferent setting
    it says operation not permitted.

    Ive also seen this before
    When someone trys a normal ping.

    ping: socket: Operation not permitted

    How are theses things done and is there a site thats tells u in detail on
    how to make your system secure

    /Steve
