Blocking processes at startup
I want to turn off several services which I do not use (I think?) when
I connect to the internet. These are (in rc.0 order):
httpd, mysql, samba, nfsd, rpc, sshd, saslauthd, openldap, messagebus,
and as in rc.0 end with /bin/sync and /bin/sleep 3.
I am unsure of ssalauthd, openldap and messagebus in particular.
If I turn off httpd won't that effect my access to the web?
I am not running mysql or samba of nfs at this time.
The objective is to have as few services available as possible thinking
this would thwart any hackers.
The means for turning these off would be commenting them out in rc.0.
Any ideas or suggestions will be very helpful.
