” … the person responsible for the hack claimed they gained unauthorized access by exploiting a misconfigured GPRS support gateway node that was exposed to the internet …”
I normally don't post food but damn this was good. I was just throwing stuff together with no idea of my final results. I just had to share as to be honest I was surprised on how tasty my experimentation came out. Think I accidentally created my new favorite dish.
Bourbon chicken with sweet mustard sauce with a side of garlic Parmesam penne pasta.
Spent two days fighting configs and pinouts for a upgrade for my 3d printer. Of course internet was no help. Everyone asking the same questions and no answers. I just said screw it and started randomly assigning analog pins until I hit the right config then started playing with voltage. After 2 days I got it figured out.
I guess the right thing to do is write up how to set it up for others. What a pain..
I am not sure if anyone here knew br0k3nkernel from upstate NY but I just found out he died. I met him once at linux fest and would ras each other all the time. I will miss picking on him and his ancient laptops. I guess no more jokes about him using Apollo era cpu's
From what I understand he had a bad reaction to the vaccine. He felt ill shortly after and went to the hospital. He lost all motor function and next day he lost his ability to speak that night he died.
You will be missed,
@omnipotens To expand a bit, at least my enforcement has been that they can stay if they're not spamming and whoever's on the account appears to interact with the community.
Spam and disrespecting our community or being a bad representative risks getting the whole business banned, IMO.
Look I keep getting emails and messages if they can post AD's on LR.
Here is my rule. If it's Linux related then yes anything else no. If you sell hardware that is 100% Linux compatible or promotes open source then it is allowed.
Podcast do not fall into this category as I know we have plenty of other content on here that people follow.
Little more update on LinuxRocks.
Do to the bad ram we dropped it from 384 to 290 with failover dimms available.
Looks as the only effected drive was the OS raid. The OS was reinstalled on the host and the VMs came backup.
I took the opportunity to run some firmware updates and the host and change some bios settings.
Also the host was complaining about cache battery but after firmware update it came back online.
LR is Back UP!
Wow, that was a rough outage. Think I have heard of something called sleep. I sure miss it 😜
The Host was reinstalled and some bad ram was removed.
XFS zero byte many OS files. Luckily it was only on the OS RAID.
Anyway, it is back up. I will update you more on what happened later if anyone is interested.
As stated in my last toot we are going to have an outage to recover the host.
If anyone would like to stay in the loop you can join us on telegram for updates, question, or just like to chat or help.
The host the lr's vm is running on took a dump. Currently the VMs are up and running but all access including console is in accessible on the host.
The host OS and the VMs run on two separate arrays. The best guess at this time is the OS array crapped out.
I do not want to reboot anything until we grab the latest backup for all the VMs currently running.
Unfortunately I have no idea till reboot which maybe later tonight.
Don't fear lr will be back
