Webcast to MySQL Strategie of Oracle

Filed under: Programming — Schlagwörter: — paddy @ 1:21 pm

Sounds good to me what Oracle are trying to do to improve MySQL. Hopefully it is also true what they are saying about their commitment to Open Source.

The strategy according to Edward Screven is „Complete. Open. Integrated.“ Oracles overall strategy.

There is a look at the MySQL 5.5 beta. [[InnoDB]] will become default. [[MyISAM]] will still be supported though.

Schutz vor DLL-Lücke in Windows-Programmen

Filed under: Hacking — Schlagwörter: — paddy @ 11:45 pm

bevor Ihr jetzt sagt, dass interessiert mich doch einen Scheiß und lass mich doch mit so einem Müll in Ruhe, lest bitte weiter.

Das trifft alle Windows Nutzer! Also auch Eure Kisten zu Hause. Meine Einschätzung ist, dass diese Sache nicht auf die leichte Schulter zu nehmen ist und Ihr das für Euch als Privatperson das umgehend umsetzen solltet. Eine Anleitung gibt es auch [1]. Dort ist auch ein offizielles Video von M$ verlinkt.

Checkliste ist:

  1. den Dienst deaktivieren
  2. die Ports in der Firewall blocken
  3. und den Wert in die Registry schreiben (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE ist in dem chip Artikel abgekürzt durch HKLM und das ist auch für mich unverständlich gewesen)

Bug in mod_php: DNS cached after change

Filed under: Hacking,Host — Schlagwörter: — paddy @ 4:00 pm

After a change of Domain Name Server (in /etc/resolv.conf) it seems to be necessary to stop and start the Apache server. A simple restart will not do. I have not done any tests on which versions of Apache and mod_php are affected.

Hacked computers spamming apache server log

Filed under: Hacking — Schlagwörter: — paddy @ 3:04 pm

If you find the following in the error.log of an apache webserver:

… [error] [client XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX] client sent HTTP/1.1 request without hostname (see RFC2616 section 14.23): …

You can be sure that in most cases it is a computer, largely even running a webserver and many other services, with no firewall, lacking security precautions, xampp and phpmyadmin open to everybody, empty passwords, etc. sometimes they have all of these features at once.
