Hello everyone :)
Just stumbled across this in the news with a small info on youtube about it.
This is really sweet.

Ok, let me try to be more specific.
Using DNS arp poisoning, it is possible for someone to sniff unencrypted traffic in a network (a LAN) which is routed through the bad mans computer. Normally a...

Apart from ftp access, is there any other way to access that machine? SSH/Telnet/rlogin or the likes?
The ftp password could have been sniffed (man in the middle), so no matter how long the pass...

Sorry to not answer directly to your question, but I would just like to add that some of the greatest weaknesses in computer security are user error, such as:

Ive taken your advice, and have found a few Lithuanian sites with a policy that does fit in my needs. Many thanks for giving me a bump to the most obvious. Dunno why i didn't approach it that way...

Maybe this will help you to block some ;)
For Web server's .htaccess blocklists go here:

One other issue that has not been pointed out yet is, you think that you can just rely on a technical solution for all this. Blame it all on software/hardware. One of the main issues though, that can...

Yes, reset the device, and reconfigure it. Once you have it configured to a satisfactory setting, make a backup of the rom.

I had the same problem with a similar device (zyxel). The problem occured after i changed some settings on the device to do with logfiles and trying to setup email notification. Right after that my...

Uhm, ok i got a stupid question here, but when you install a new windows OS.... cant you see the date and time in installation logs? Or maybe try to see a date when a file has been created or changed...

I honestly do not think you need to worry about such thoughts. One of the nice things I have come across here on AO over the past years is that people on AO are really willing to help. They enjoy...

I would say that the purpose of the guest OS plays a role when defining how much resources to give it.
If you want it just for a console mode linux, for servers etc... then a low video card...

That should be possible to control and lockdown, since this is a security issue in this current scenario.
(im still not sure if its possible on windows to lockdown for example hotplugging a usb...

SuSE 9 is ancient... get any new live distro and boot from cd. The reason why I keep coming back to this solution is, so you can make BACKUPS before you even try to attempt to restore you old system....

Are you able to boot from a live cd? If yes, just boot from any linux live cd, plug in an external USB stick or hard drive and copy your files that you need. Then reinstall your box and copy the...

So the only 'security' breach that i see (maybe someone else can see more) is, that if a user uses a USB stick to copy files from his cubicle PC and copies them on to his laptop, the files are as...

Are these private laptops used for company work? Do they carry company files? Do they connect to anything company related other than using them for internet during company operating hours? Is your...

Depending on the security settings of each station/laptop/whatever the MiFi is connected to, it could be an open hole to the machines it connects with and the internal network.
Apart from that.......

Would a flood, or a situation with a similar effect (loss) not be covered in a policy? For IT for example, this kind of problems should be covered in a security policy... is there no policy for...

Maybe you can ssh to the box, and install nvidia drivers? (manually, you need to get the drivers of the nvidia website). That is if you have another box in the network?

The installation is easy as pie.
1 - Boot from the CD
2 - Hit enter when it asks your for default keyb layout (its usa)
3 - type 'root', and hit enter
4 - 'Fdisk' and partition your disk, 1...

Very true and sorry to go offtopic from the start of the thread, but please do not forget that there are MANY other ways to obtain passwords other than cracking them. We have all seen the dangers...

Oh cheers gore for that reply.
So from what i understood the main (and maybe only) issue is, that its overbloated. I cant say anything, since from a GUI point of view i only used this one for...
