Ubuntu :: Conky Display Computer Login Attempts?

Jul 10, 2011

I think someone has been in my apartment when I'm at work and attempted to login to my computer.

Rather than searching through all the logs, is there any way for Conky to display the last 2 or 3 login attempts?

Ubuntu :: Boot Attempts Reset Computer?

Dec 7, 2010

So I run a dual-boot win7/ubuntu system and out of nowhere I am now unable to boot into ubuntu. I get up to the screen where I select which OS to boot into, then I select ubuntu, get the wubldr messages and then my computer instantly resets back to the original load screen.

This comes paired with a bad boot into my windows partition so I feel like they may be related. I did a system repair and now windows works though. I'm defraging my harddrive now just to see if it works.

Ubuntu Security :: SSH Login Attempts Using WINBIND ?

Oct 23, 2010

I have an SSH server on my laptop, and I'm using the default configuration file, but I added "AllowUsers <myUserName>". I get lots of login attempts like the ones below in my /var/log/auth.log.From Google, I find that pam_winbind allows some kind of Windows authentication. This leaves me with 2 questions. What does winbind do when I have not configured any Windows/Samba accounts? How can I turn it off?

Code:
Oct 23 20:01:49 muon sshd[24329]: User root from 201.116.17.163 not allowed because not listed in AllowUsers

Ubuntu Security :: Block Multiple Ssh Login Attempts?

Mar 22, 2011

I am running a ubuntu server 10.10 with SSH, and OpenVPN. I use it mainly for the VPN, but I have seen log in attempts such as:

Mar 22 14:52:53 UbuntuSvr sshd[2397]: Invalid user support from 85.217.190.69
Mar 22 14:52:55 UbuntuSvr sshd[2399]: Invalid user student from 85.217.190.69
Mar 22 14:52:57 UbuntuSvr sshd[2401]: Invalid user transfer from 85.217.190.69
Mar 22 14:52:59 UbuntuSvr sshd[2403]: Invalid user user from 85.217.190.69

[Code]...

Is it possible to make it so when some one has tried logging in 5 times with an invalid user/pass that the ip is banned for 10 minutes? I have password auth set to no and am using keys.

Fedora Security :: Email On ALL Ssh Login Attempts?

Apr 28, 2009

I know this is probably easy and if I only took a while to figure it out maybe I could but I have some stuff that needs to happen soon and I can't figure this out. I was wondering how I could have a log monitor that would email me whenever someone tries to login over ssh to my system. I'm open to everything daemons/scripts or cron itl works as I am not running a production server (but I might be starting that soon). Oh and just a side how do I get sent an email when I get port scanned

Fedora Security :: Ssh Malicious Login Attempts

Nov 15, 2009

I have a server box behind my ISP router at home, and I need to allow ssh access to my server. My ISP router doesn't let me allow selectively ssh from some IP. It allows ssh to everyone.

I have fedora10 and openssh-server-5.1p1-3. How can I configure openssh to allow just from 1 IP?

Does it use xinetd at all and the hosts.allow and .deny mechanism?

Ubuntu Security :: Limit Login Attempts For Specific User?

Jan 15, 2011

I'd like to limit login attempts for specific user. I've found information in manpages: [URL]but I'm not sure if this '@' is purposly there, so would be that correct?

Code:
aparaho - maxlogins 4
or
Code:
@aparaho - maxlogins 4

Maybe '@' is a group syntax? I'm confused.

What happens after 4 failed loggins? Is it enough to restart system to get another login attempts?

Are there any other values that it is reasonable to limit for safety reasons?

OpenSUSE :: Root Login - Attempts To Start Missing App?

Oct 15, 2010

Somehow an app on this box seems to have disappeared long ago which was configured to start immediatedly with a root login (eg su). Now, whenever upgrading permissions to root or logging (and assuming login as root), an error displays saying "cannot find <application>"

Considering root usually is different than other logins, am not sure where to start looking on an OpenSuSE box. I've tried without success

BASH -v to enable verbose mode before executing a "su."
BASH --debugger to enable debugging mode before executing a "su."

Logout, Login as root and inspect /var/log/ hoping to find some logfile that audits the login sequence, but may be looking at a wrong logfile.

Security :: Account Lock After Failed Login Attempts

May 25, 2010

I'm trying to lock an account after a number of failed login attempts in a RHEL5.

This is the relevant configuration in /etc/pam.d/system-auth

In the logs I can see how the count of failed logins increase and exceeds my deny option but the account isn't locked

Do I need any other option in the PAM file? Is there any other way to lock an account?

Security :: OpenLDAP / NSS / PAM Produce Logs Of Failed Login Attempts?

Feb 16, 2011

I am trying to get OpenLDAP to authenticate user logins, but running around in circles. Are there any logs produced by either client and/or server that would indicate possible reasons why it was unable to login as a user?Below is an explanation, any ideas would be appreciated, as I think everything is setup as per the various articles on using LDAP.

I have a CentOS 5.5 OpenLDAP server, and several others, some host services, some are file shares (samba).So far I have been able to successfully configure OpenLDAP to carry out all the ldap* commands from both the local server and from any of the remote servers, either via non-ssl or ssl connections. However, as soon as I try connecting any services up to it, it doesn't play ball.Back to basics, having cleared off all previous attempts at this from all machines, I have gone through the following:

Installed OpenLDAP server/client on host (plus nss_ldap).
Configured /etc/openldap/slapd.conf (see below)
Configured /etc/openldap/ldap.conf (see below)

Ubuntu :: Conky Display All Mounted Drives

Sep 18, 2010

So I'm running Fluxbox as my window manager in Xubuntu. I use ivman to automatically mount any usb devices.Now I was wondering if it's possible to have conky display all mounted drives and some information about them.I saw you can do {$ifmounted /media/blah} but this would assume I have a set number of devices preconfigured in fstab. It doesn't account for some random guy's flash drive, or a buddy's smartphone.

I know mount | grep sd outputs a list of mounted drives. So then could I somehow format that output and pass it to conky? Or do you guys have any more clever ideas on how I could accomplish this?

OpenSUSE Install :: All Login / Su Attempts Fail After Applying Su Update Patch (11.2 / X86_64)

Yesterday I applied the su security patch to my openSuSE 11.2 x86_64 system.After applying the patch, any attempt at su failed, and after rebooting the system earlier this morning any login (root, user, otherwise) fails with a "Permission Denied".Is it possible that the su update somehow messed up my (standard) pam settings?

OpenSUSE Network :: Deal With Mass Postfix Relay And Dovecot Login Attempts

Jul 25, 2011

For about a week now I've been seeing mass attempts to relay through postfix and login to dovecot from the same 2 addresses, none are successful due to how postfix/dovecot are configured and I wouldn't be overly worried but my isp have picked up on it and are nagging at me

What ways do people go about just dropping connection attempts from offending addresses/ranges when stuff like that happens? An ideal thing would be something that detects repeated failed attempts from a host or range and subsequently ignore/ban them, perhaps for a specified length of time, something along the lines of denyhosts and fail2ban for ssh would be great Don't know if there's anything out there or just a plain tried and trusted method anyone might use for stuff like this, if not a hint on the most appropriate way to go about it 'manually' would do

Software :: Display External IP Address In Conky?

Nov 27, 2010

I am putting together a Conky config file by a sort of 'smash and grab' approach borrowing things from various configs I've seen around the web that do stuff I like. I have reached a stumbling block as I want to display my external IP, I have used

Code:

${addrs eth0}

to display the IP on my LAN and guessed I would just need to substitute 'eth0' with something else to get the external IP?? I have tried the mac address of my primary router to no avail, this just displays '0.0.0.0' My current config looks like:-

Code:

# set to yes if you want Conky to be forked in the background
background yes
#font
use_xft yes

[code]....
