comment Developing Linux Kernel From Scratch - Step by Step
Judging by your question you lack so much information I wouldn't even know where to begin correcting it. Take several years of university-grade computer science courses, specialize in machine architecture and operating systems. Good luck.

comment A layman's explanation for “Everything is a file” — what differs from Windows?

comment SSH slow after configuring TCP Wrappers
Although not quite "impossible" and more "not viable" -- chances are the botnet controller will note the vastly reduced response rate, deduce that there's a firewall blocking him and go look for a better target.

comment Force command to be run on logout or disconnect?
Except that it only works if someone 1) uses bash; 2) doesn't change their .bash_logout and 3) always logs off gracefully rather than killing their SSH connection.
