Excellent Vorlin! I hope you don't mind if I kind of re-hash/repeat what you have already said in my two posts here. I kinda posted them before I realized that you had pretty much answered the...

A couple of things jason-mis, first I can't help but notice that your attacker knows your first name, this is a big clue all by itself.
next, your secure log suggests that ssh is not properly...

Here is that screenshot I mentioned and somehow left out in the post. :D

Hi jason-mis, I am sorry to hear that you were attacked. This is unfortunate, especially since you are just beginning to learn.
I suspect that if you were ever hacked in Windows that you would...

Keep in mind that MS does not have a problem with Unix, they have a problem with Linux, and the Open Source Free BSD Unix's.
Note that Solaris and HP-UX are relatively proprietary comapared to...

Perhaps I can give some advice to newbies.
Keep in mind that Unix based OS's are more or less designed by programmers for programmers. It is assumed that you are going to read all of the...

Yet another case of RTFM.
Had you RTFM, you would have known how to operate all of the menu's, and you would have known how to exit the program, and you would have known that EMACS comes with a...

Absolutely, the more security discussions the better.
Happy New Year!!

geeeeez, sheeeesh! Absolutely right Vorlin! :D
It's the little things that you forget to tell people. :D
audioluv, check that the BIOS is *not* set to PNP = `yes' or `on' as Vorlin said before...

finger is a service that lets you see who is logged into the system and a little about them like last login, new mail, unread mail, the users $HOME directory, and their .plan file.
The way this...

Some basic stuff can be done as `joe user', but all of the nifty stuff requires root privi's.
This is of course a politicaly correct feature found on many Unix security tools.
Doing an 'su'...

Ok audioluv, I can work with this :D
I am focusing on two things in dmseg that catch my attention here. First is that you mention that you have an ATA66 controller card, and second that the...

First things first, make copies of any system file before you do anything to it. This will prevent many a re-install.
example: I want to work on /etc/passwd, so ....

I am willing to help out, but on these conditions only.
1. That you start looking at this as a fun challenge by which you stand to actually learn a thing or two about computer hardware and how...

iptables, or go to http://www.freshmeat.net and do a search for firewalls there.
December 30th, 2001, 05:25 PM
Your right audioluv, you should stick to Windows.

I found it hard to resist this thread, I was eyeballing it for more than a week, and this morning I gave in.
The problem with this discussion is that the majority of the folks out there that...

At least 50% of members .
And we have a few of these.

If you want a system that is easy to configure, has plenty of applications, games, and other goodies as part of the default install, pick either Suse or Mandrake Linux. They will get you over your...

For now, go into the bios and disable your parallel port, or at least set it to `bidirectional'. Also, make sure that your BIOS is set to Plug N' Play OFF or NO.
As for the...

A polite disagreement if I may.
There is nothing cheap and low end about the Unix presence on the internet. Pay a visit to http://www.netcraft.com and look up just about any site that comes to...

MS seems like they are always cutting a deal with someone to make a technology functional on their OS's only.
Games are another good example of this, although less visible. Often games are...

UberC0der's Opinion ####
Ok, I can see someone arguing that a new Linux user that isn't really sure how to even mount their CDROM yet is a little...

Isn't it amazing that some of the worlds most gifted coders start with `hello world'.
