BIOS still not smart enough

Posted 04-30-2012 at 02:45 PM by Skaperen

BIOS is still not smart enough, and has failed to reach the "holy grail" of doing just what system administrators want it to do. This means you AMI. And the others, too.

What I (and just about every system administrator I've talk to about this) want is to be able to specify a device boot order that does NOT get modified by the BIOS just because the media or device is absent in a future boot cycle. I want to have the USB memory stick be the FIRST boot device, conditional...

QT4 Property dump example. (simple terminal app)

Posted 04-30-2012 at 03:24 AM by rainbowsally

This code just prints out the properties (and where they come from) for one widget. You can see the dump around the middle of this blog entry.

A full blown version would require a LOT of includes and libs and a way to replace a "ClassName" string in the file with the actual class we want to dump. (See "%s" in three places below.)

file: src/qt4-props.cpp
Code:
// file: qt4-props.cpp - lists all properties for (in this case)

Running Logwatch in a more portable way

Posted 04-28-2012 at 05:16 AM by unSpawn

In the Linux Security forum we often ask victims of (perceived) security breaches to gather log files and parse them for leads using Logwatch. Analysis is best done on a physically separate, known secure machine in a safe network. If left unmodified Logwatch configuration defaults will result in it picking up the machines logs instead of the compromised machines logs. Here is a patch for install_logwatch.sh that will install Logwatch in a temporary directory and prepare it for receiving log files...
