I've had a long session of improving security on my home server yesterday.
I never actually made a permanent and correct monitoring with rkhunter, but when I ran through all it's options, I finally came to realize this is just awesome, it just OWNZ! Greets to developers team!!!
Some guys from LQ Security forum really are the experts. I always knew that, but just again, in case you read my blog, I'd like to thank you all, the members of "online security team" of LQ, you know...
Today I've finally make it to reflashing, I was quite busy these days. So, armed with manuals over the net I started the process by uploading .chk of dd-wrt, in order to then upload .bin (renamed .trx) of tomato-usb.
My first mistake was when I uploaded dd-wrt. Actually, that was sorta minimal build, not so fresh also, I am not exactly sure what went wrong but I started to tweak it instead of moving right ahead with uploading tomatousb. When I applied some settings and rebooted it no longer...
About two years ago, when I wasn't yet a linux user I saw a video on youtube, a comparision of two laptops, one running Ubuntu, another windblows vista.
at some moment of video the guy starts some ugly screensaver from windblows, something looks like old "pipes" from older versions of the system and then, starts this outstanding 3d screensaver with fireworks exploding under the clouds in ubuntu laptop. Which is free and opensource, yeah.
I never actually used screensavers...
Yesterday I was surprised when discovered that,... ehm, well... I'm such a newbie in this... that most routers using MIPS not ARM CPU as I thought before
Since that, I've also tried to look at MIPS in QEMU. There is even less information about this, though debian to help I was surprised I've missed it last time when doing experiments with qemu-system-arm, but now it's very helpful with qemu-system-mips.
I used aurel32's page as a start point: http://people.debian.org/~aurel32/qemu/mips/...
Yesterday I bought this cute tiny box for my home net. My previous routers were 2 PCs, first one I used since aug 2009 was P1 200mhz, 64mb ram, recent one is old celeron 2.4 ghz, 1g ram which is much more unstable than P1
These ones were using way too much power and make an excessive levels of noise, so I finally decided to trash this stuff and get myself a small box
Initially I was looking for a cheapest router supporting wifi(I have a laptop and I'm already sick of...
