comment How to apply a patch correctly?
Yes. Basically, it tells patch to do absolutely everything except actually alter the files, so you can see if the patch goes through cleanly.

--dry-run is your friend and you should ALWAYS use it before actually patching.

@borniet Best practice in any case.

As a note, you can configure postfix to deny mail access to specific users. Assuming that your webhosting service setuids to each individual website's owner that would let you allow the site to remain running while still protecting your mail -- although whether you want to allow a known compromised site to remain running at all in the first place is a judgement call.

You don't need the outgoing headers. Just grep your log for (for instance) 4E81026038 and check out how postfix received it and by whom.

You can't do the former -- any php script is capable of specifying a server to use while sending email -- and the latter would involve a manual check of every php script on your server.

@antennen In the future, I recommend looking at debian backports if you need software newer than the stable tree provides.

comment What happens in each step of the Linux kernel-building process?
Slight addendum: The initramfs part isn't "horrible" compared to what'll happen if you configured a kernel that requires an initrd but didn't actually create one to go with it.
