Security :: Any Good Comparison Software To Scan Files?

Apr 23, 2011

I had a hack on my oscommerce website recently. I have put in the relevant security patches but I need to check whether the hacker left any code changes in my files. What is a good file comparison software for linux? I need it to scan though the current files and folders and compare it the original default oscommerce installation so I can check the code.

Ubuntu Security :: Basics Of Good Security Of Small Commercial Website?

Jan 17, 2011

1. I understand you can protect your files or directories in your website by setting file/directory permissions. The meaning of r w x is clear to me, but I'm not sure how to proceed... Starting with the index.html file, if I wanted to make it so that anyone in the world can read it but can't modify it, do I set its permissions to rwxr-xr-x? If I set it to rwxr--r--, would that mean the file couldn't be served? I mean, what does the x setting do on a .html file, how can a .html file be executable?

2. If file permissions work on the lines of owner-group-others, in the context of a website, who is 'group'? As far as I can tell, there's only the owner, which is me, and others, which is the world accessing the site. Am I correct in thinking that by default, say when creating a website on a shared hosting server, there is no group unless I specifically set one up?

3. My ISP allows the service, meaning that I could serve a website from my home. It's too early to go that route just yet, but for future reference, I would like to ask about the server software called Hiawatha. It is said to be secure, but having read some evaluations of it, it doesn't seem to offer anything that couldn't be accomplished with Apache or Cherokee, it's just that its security settings are simpler and easier to configure. Am I right about this? Or does Hiawatha truly offer something that the other major server packages don't?

Ubuntu Security :: Way To Scan For Rootkits ?

Jul 24, 2011

I've read that there are a lot of rootkits that exist for linux. MS Windows has tools where you can boot a "portable" scanner from a CD and scan your whole Windows installation for rootkits. This way you can even scan boot sectors because you are never actually starting your installed Windows.

Is there anything available like this for Ubuntu? Is there a scanner I can run off the LIVE CD for example to scan my ubuntu installation for rootkits?

Ubuntu Security :: Understanding ClamTK Scan Results

Apr 10, 2010

I've installed ClamTK on my Kubuntu 9.10 installation, since it's connected to a Windows7 machine.When I ran a scan, it found 9 'viruses', but they are all within my home directory > Opera/mail/store and are either status Phishing.Heuristics.Email.SpoofedDomain OR HTML.Phishing.Bank-593.I recently synced my Hotmail into Opera, so I checked the corresponding dates in my Hotmail account and deleted the emails which I thought were related, however, after clearing down my Opera history, etc., re-booting my PC and re-scanning, the results are the same.How do I clear down these files?

Ubuntu Security :: Clamav Scan Results And Out Of Date?

May 29, 2011

I am a newbie in ubuntu. I did clamscan on my ubuntu /, and I got the result message as follow. it shows "486 errors" I am wondering if the result is OK or I need to do some action on it.

Known viruses: 968595
Engine version: 0.96.5
Scanned directories: 28067
Scanned files: 131696
Infected files: 0
Total errors: 486
Data scanned: 9020.40 MB
Data read: 17800.31 MB (ratio 0.51:1)
Time: 1349.479 sec (22 m 29 s)"

Also, my engine is 0.96.5. The latest version is 0.97. But "aptitude upgrade" can not upgrade the engine to 0.97. I understand 0.97 is still on testing. I am wondering if I can just stay with 0.96.5 and wait for the 0.97 passing all tests. if so, does it cause any security issue?

Ubuntu Security :: Innocent Website Tries To 'scan' Computer / Should I Get Protection?

May 6, 2010

So I forgot how to do something in Compiz and I quickly Googled it to find the answer. On the first or second link I clicked, a pop-up box opened from Firefox saying that I should scan my computer. Immediately, I pressed the X button, but a page started to load that tried to "scan" my computer. I closed out Firefox and re-opened it. I did the exact same search again on Google, but I clicked on the cached view of the site. It was harmless enough--a blog with some ads on the side of the page. I'm assuming that it was one of the ads that somehow must have taken over the page.

Anyway, I know that the discussion of anti-virus programs is not anything new, but I would like to know if this virus may have affected Ubuntu. What would you guys recommend in this case?Also, after running the update manager, I received a pop-up box asking if I would like to update Grub. Is this a normal part of the update, or could it be a virus? I'm a bit paranoid, being from the land of Windows.

Ubuntu Security :: SSH Keys Only Good For Specific PC?

Feb 11, 2010

I have enabled ssh key based logins for one of my servers and disabled normal password based logins. It just occurred to me that the public key which I generated on my pc, and uploaded to the servers authorized_keys, may in fact only apply to my local PC / user account. So basically if my system crashes I would have no way to login to the server...? Is it not possible to "share" public keys so other people (PCs / accounts) can use them?

Ubuntu :: How To Scan Specific Files

May 13, 2010

I know everyone may discard this post because you do not need AV on linux BUT i am trying to use my linux PC as a download horse and would like to scan the files for viruses before I move them to my Windows machine. I downloaded and installed the latest AVG, how do I scan specific files, is it the avgscan command? I check /opt/avg/avg8/log for the scan results of a folder scanned and nothing. I tried avgscan -o -p ~/downloads where -o shows even clean files but after i run the command, there is nothing shown in the prompt and nothing in the log file.

Ubuntu Security :: What Is Good IP Filter / Firewall Program?

Jun 10, 2010

What is a good IP filter/firewall program? Seeing as how I like free softwares, I download a lot of torrents. When I was using Windows, I used PeerBlock (the newer fork of PeerGuardian), however, it's not available for Linux. What would be a good alternative for this in Linux? I tried iplist as it has a GUI, and it was extremely buggy and blocked random web pages even after I put them on the exceptions list. And MoBlock has no GUI from I understand, nor has it been updated in years.

Ubuntu Security :: Blackbuntu - Good Pen Test Distro?

Was just wondering if anyone has had a chance to use this yet? All software that the distro uses is readily avilable in the ubuntu repositories already.
