What should I do? Well, you can set it up so that X starts before you login. Exactly what to set the runlevel to varies between distributions. On my machine I changed from runlevel 3 to 5 Red Hat 3. This will start a program called xdm, which handles the logon, amongst other things. Ok, now I have the xdm login and everything, but now I'm back with the color problem.
How do I get xdm to start in another color depth? In one line you'll find the command that executes X. It should look something like ': Give that command the flag '-bpp 16'. Kha0S Linux - most secure Linux distribution possible http: The default is to warn for all of these extensions except the "lnk" one. Note the trailing " " on the end -- this is necessary in order for Eudora to warn for "lnk" files, but the extra " " can be confusing to users who intuitively understand " " to mean "or" -- in which case it looks like the trailing " " should not be necessary, but it's required by the Eudora parser.
Deploying Windows NT Workstation 4. Using the system preparation tool can translate into substantial cost savings for customers. Tue, 04 Apr Atro Tossavainen [Atro. Tossavainen iki. IRIX v?.?? This is for 6. And restart sendmail of course Jefferson Ogata [ogata pobox-u-spam-u-die.
The Antibozo Alexis Cousein wrote: Nonetheless, mail from cron jobs will still be queued via sendmail. If initial delivery fails, you need to rerun the queue. The simplest way to do this is to change the startup options as Atro suggests. If you take out -bd, sendmail won't bind and listen on the SMTP port, and -q15m will have it run the queue every 15 minutes. Other systems you install may expect to be able to deliver mail via sendmail as well.
You need to run the queue periodically, one way or another. Internetworker, Antibozo smtp: I've never heard of that exact scam being done before, but it's similar to the usual spammer trick of finding open SMTP relays and hijacking them.
What's happened is somebody has sold banner ads on his web site. He has a web page containing, say, porno pictures, along with a banner ad at the top. The banner company gives the site operator a piece of HTML to put at the top of his page, which typically looks like this: They pay the site operator a certain amount for every hit. You're now paying for the bandwidth to serve the banner to the final viewer, instead of the ad company paying for it. If the ad company is there in.
You might log the incoming referer headers to see what site is including those ads. If you want to creatively get back at them a little, instead of sending responses, you could set up your server to send good responses, but send your own version of the banner ad for the customer to see instead of the ad company's, heh heh heh. It's probably not worth your time though. It's a theft of resources. Firewall positioning CERT paper on firewall security issues and best practices.

One Alternative to WAP": In fact, announce is just a filter, which may be used to start any other Unix program when new mail arrives. If you didn't make your Icon using our applet, it may not be a true ICO file and you need to make a favicon.
If you did make a favicon. Rest assured, however, your new bookmark is visible to the rest of the world and any new bookmarks will be seen with that logo. If you want to see the new logo, we have 2 possible remedies Thanks Pete Harwood: Simply deleting the original shortcut and creating a new one forces IE to download the new icon as it doesn't have the newicon. It is also good habit to check the link used in the above tag ie http: Then make sure you select the General Tab.
There you will click Settings under Temporary Internet Files. You can then delete the offending file there. When you reboot the machine now, the shortcuts will revert to IE's standard icon. Simply clearing the cache doesn't delete icons, just as it doesn't delete cookies. Adding the site to favorites again now will force IE to download the new icon. Earlier we had recommended, deleting the existing bookmark s , clear all your cache, reset your computer, return to page and bookmark, however, users said they got mixed results.
Read below if this is the case. Solution submitted by Steven Champeon RedirectMatch permanent. The idea is that if you don't have an icon, you should lodge a protest of sorts, and waste Microsoft's logfiles instead. April notes from at http: In a 10 day period during March around three quarters of a million new domains were registered. What is startling is how quickly the new registrars have been able to build awareness and take market share from NSI. On a sample of new domain registrations in the same period, register.
It is possible to use this to determine Resonate installations, and the current survey has found of these, which broadly matches Resonate's claim of more than customers worldwide. Wap content pouring on to the web With wap enabled phones such as the Nokai now fairly widely available, there has been a surge of wap content onto the web, with the leading cellular providers developing mini-portals of wap content, and sites such as yahoo. However, one other early content provider has already commented that the tiny screens and limited bandwidth make for a frustrating user experience.
Credit card theft rife, chronic ecommerce site security MSNBC reported on 17th March, and again on 24th March, cases in which large numbers of credit card numbers and associated information had been stolen from sites, while theregister.
Certainly, it is clear that large numbers of valid credit cards are now in the wild, and being used to fraduently buy goods and services around the web. These incidents make plain that, however much encryption is used to protect information in transit as SSL does , data is still not protected if the systems at the end points are insecure.
The amount of disruption caused for credit card fullfilment has led to a small resurgence of internet in the use of the SET protocol instead of SSL to alleviate the problems of weak merchant security. SET uses trusted centralised servers, typically run by financial institutions, and digitally signed information to avoid the need for the merchant to receive and store the credit card number itself. The customer has software which signs the payment authorisation using their private signature key.
SET therefore might seem attractive: However customers have to store private signature keys on their own systems, the theft of which would allow someone else to assume their identity as far as the SET protocol is concerned. For instance, if you're an internet provider and you want to let all of your customers have customized web addresses, you might have www.
This feature is also known as "virtual hosts". There are three steps to setting this up. One, make DNS entries for all of the hostnames. If you want to stay compatible, there's a different way - use A records instead, each with a different IP address, like so: But if you want people with older browsers to be able to visit your sites, you still have to do it this way.
Step two. Otherwise, using the older multiple-IP-address method you must set up IP aliases or multiple interfaces for the extra addresses. You can use ifconfig 8 's alias command to tell the machine to answer to all of the different IP addresses. Third and last, you must set up thttpd to handle the multiple hosts. What it does is send each incoming request to a subdirectory based on the hostname it's intended for.
All you have to do in order to set things up is to create those subdirectories in the directory where thttpd will run. With the example above, you'd do like so: There's an optional alternate step three if you're using multiple-IP multihosting: This gives you more flexibility, since you can run each of these processes in separate directories, with different throttle files, etc.
Most of today's internet uses IPv4, which is now nearly twenty years old. IPv4 has been remarkably resilient in spite of its age, but it is beginning to have problems. Most importantly, there is a growing shortage of IPv4 addresses, which are needed by all new machines added to the Internet". In any civilised court, the decision lies with the accuser to prove that a person did what they say they did. Hence "reasonable doubt" in murder trials for example.
This is a cornerstone in most law courts and as such is automatically presumed to be the case in arbitration decisions. It is, however, not explicitly stated and the last two years has seen a relaxation in what should be a hard and fast rule. Despite this, the point holds that UDRP does not provide an effective method for deciding guilt or innocence.
Again, a seemingly unimportant point but one of extraordinary import. Without a set approach to how the rules can be proven one way or the other, decisions made by judges are likely to vary hugely and so damage the creation of case law. It is also makes it far harder for a registrant to respond effectively to a challenge see next point. Our goal is to create an easy-to-use open source program that allows systems administrators to set up and manage VPNs with both a GUI and command-line interface.
These services allow you to build secure tunnels through untrusted networks. Everything passing through the untrusted net is encrypted by the IPSEC gateway machine and decrypted by the gateway at the other end. This is a network which is effectively private even though it includes machines at several different sites connected by the insecure Internet.
It is also much more efficient than IPsec, which requires more overhead. And don't worry about UDP packets being thrown away - if it is encapsulated tcp traffic, the specific applications will still deal with a tcp circuit and do any error handling.
Like the Macintosh, the Amiga was based on the Motorola processor. It was soon phased out by the lower cost Amiga at the low end shown in the picture , and the Amiga at the high end. The graphics in particular was amazing by the standards of those days.
At a time when PC users thought 16 color low resolution EGA was hot stuff, the Amiga could display colors, could reach the extremely high resolution of x, and had custom chips such as a blitter for accelerated graphics. It even had built-in video outputs for TV's and VCR's a decade later this was still a pricey extra cost option for most systems. The Amiga's audio system was also impressive. Building on the audio capabilities of the Commodore 64, the Amiga had four voice sampled stereo sound and was the first computer with built-in speech synthesis.
With a small investment, even a home user could do reasonable quality desktop video production I remember doing quite a few videos myself for high school and university presentations. The Amiga's operating system, designed by Carl Sassenrath, was just as amazing. From the outset it had preemptive multitasking, a graphical user interface, shared libraries, messaging, scripting, and multiple simultaneous command line consoles.
Ten years later, PC and Macintosh users were still waiting for some of those features. Thanks to the custom chips and an efficient operating system, the Amiga even felt fast. The user interface was really quite snappy, much faster than a Macintosh. Five years later, Microsoft Windows running on a much faster based PC still felt slower. The Amiga was also the first platform to make major use of emulation of other operating systems.
Emulators for the IBM PC and the Apple Macintosh became quite widely used, often in an attempt to make the Amiga more useful for business purposes it didn't have a lot of business software. The technology of emulation went on to become very important in the next decade. How do I find all setuid and setgid files?
SafeTP operates by installing a transparent proxy in the Windows networking stack which detects outgoing FTP connections from any windows FTP client, and silently secures them using modern cryptographic techniques the server must also support SafeTP in order for a secure connection to be succesfully established. One key feature of the SafeTP client proxy is that it was designed to be completely transparent to the client FTP application. Wed, 03 May USER peter Password required for peter.

A is being censored if, somewhere in the line of communication between A and B, a third party C, against the will of either A, B, or both, changes the message in such a way as to impact the content of the message in significant way, by removal of content, distortion of content, addition of content, or simply denying access to A. Windows XP, unlike Windows , leaves This is an issue because CatOS software prior to 6. The upshot of this is that a user can bring down an entire switch network by just connecting a Windows XP Whistler workstation to their network, if a series Lan switch is in place.
Viral [sbviral giasbma. Here's a summary of 25 or so tools that I could extract automatically. I hope its useful. Tool Name: Nessus URL: Remote network security auditor, the client The Nessus Security Scanner is a security auditing tool. It makes possible to test security modules in an attempt to find vulnerable spots that should be fixed. It is made up of two parts: Netcat URL: It is designed to be a reliable "back-end" tool that can be used directly or easily driven by other programs and scripts.
At the same time it is a feature-rich network debugging and exploration tool, since it can create almost any kind of connection you would need and has several interesting built-in capabilities. Tcpdump URL: A powerful tool for network monitoring and data acquisition This program allows you to dump the traffic on a network. It can be used to print out the headers of packets on a network interface that matches a given expression.
You can use this tool to track down network problems, to detect "ping attacks" or to monitor the network activities. Snort URL: Snort has a real-time alerting capability, with alerts being sent to syslog, a separate "alert" file, or even to a Windows computer via Samba. Ethereal URL: Network traffic analyzer Ethereal is a network traffic analyzer, or "sniffer", for Unix and Unix-like operating systems.
Abacus Portsentry URL: Portscan detection daemon PortSentry has the ability to detect portscans including stealth scans on the network interfaces of your machine. Upon alarm it can block the attacker via hosts. It is part of the Abacus program suite. Otherwise you might easily block hosts you'd better not e. Tripwire URL: A file and directory integrity checker. Tripwire is a tool that aids system administrators and users in monitoring a designated set of files for any changes.
Used with system files on a regular e. Sniffit URL: Security Auditing Tool for Analysing Networks This is a powerful tool for analyzing networks for vulnerabilities created for sysadmins that cannot keep a constant look at bugtraq, rootshell and the like. IP packet filter administration for 2. X kernels Iptables is used to set up, maintain, and inspect the tables of IP packet filter rules in the Linux kernel.
The iptables tool also supports configuration of dynamic and static network address translation. An active password cracking tool john, normally called john the ripper, is a tool to find weak passwords of your users. Hunt URL: Advanced packet sniffer and connection intrusion. Hunt is a program for intruding into a connection, watching it and resetting it. Note that hunt is operating on Ethernet and is best used for connections which can be watched through it.
However, it is possible to do something even for hosts on another segments or hosts that are on switched ports. Ssh Secure Shell is a program for logging into a remote machine and for executing commands on a remote machine. It provides secure encrypted communications between two untrusted hosts over an insecure network. It is intended as a replacement for rlogin, rsh and rcp, and can be used to provide rdist, and rsync with a secure communication channel.
This software may be freely imported into the United States; however, the United States Government may consider re-exporting it a criminal offense. Thus, if you are outside the US, please retrieve this software from outside the US. In some countries, particularly Russia, Iraq, Pakistan, and France, it may be illegal to use any encryption at all without a special permit.
These programs log the client host name of incoming telnet, ftp, rsh, rlogin, finger etc. Security options are: Ntop URL: It displays a summary of network usage by machines on your network in a format reminicent of the unix top utility. It can also be run in web mode, which allows the display to be browsed with a web browser. The traceroute utility displays the route used by IP packets on their way to a specified network or Internet host.
Traceroute displays the IP number and host name if possible of the machines along the route taken by the packets. Traceroute is used as a network debugging tool. If you're having network connectivity problems, traceroute will show you where the trouble is coming from along the route.
Install traceroute if you need a tool for diagnosing network connectivity problems. The telnet client. A portscan detecting tool Scanlogd is a daemon written by Solar Designer to detect portscan attacks on your maschine. Mails anomalies in the system logfiles to the administrator Logcheck is part of the Abacus Project of security tools.
