major firewall problem


Right recently I've been having a persistant ip on my http web site for hours. Tried updating appache and iptables to block them out, to no avail.

So I tried using diff firewall software. They got ahead of me. One did say, it made a copy of the old firewall, settings.

Now I have deleted everything that looked firewall-ish. You guessed it, I can't get in or out, of it. The box, is on and running with my default account. And it won't read the live disk for the repsitry either.

Well I fixed it myself. Simples!, goto dvd drive /media/ubuntu...

find iptables and install
find ufw and install

sudo ufw disable

then add some common sense!

You also could have tried using your good old High Accuracy Manual Misbehaving-Electronics Repair tool (H.A.M.M.E.R.) ;-). When in doubt, you can always kill Apache or sshd or anything else you suspect they might be using to gain access until you have control of your system again. Not sure if it was mission critical or not, but there is always a way out (sometimes, it's just the power plug).
