Time to boycott Newegg

Posted 06-12-2012 at 01:57 PM by Skaperen

No computer that was returned from ANY customer should EVER be resold (or the hard drive thereof) with whatever data that customer left on it. There could be many bad things on there, including viruses, trojans, kiddie porn, and communication gateways for terrorists (yeah, gotta toss in the T-word somewhere).

This means wipe the disk completely and re-image the original OEM operating system in its initial state (ready to ask for your name and such).

Newegg appears...

Bash logging patches

Posted 06-12-2012 at 01:25 PM by unSpawn

Over the years we've seen quite a few "I want to log everything" questions asked for which I listed some pointers a while ago in several posts.

undeleting files that are still open

Posted 06-10-2012 at 10:28 PM by neonsignal

Normally it is tricky to recover a file that has just been deleted, but if the file is open by an application, its node still exists on the filesystem.

First find out the process id of the application:
ps -e | grep application-name
Then list all the files that the application has open:
ls -l /proc/process-id/fd/
The ones that are to be recovered can be copied:
cp /proc/process-id/fd/file-number
