General :: Allowed To Remove Root File?

Jun 16, 2010

Situation as follows: i do su to root, then i create admin file with

cat > adminfile
then i exit from root issuing exit command
i can see following adminfile options
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 10 2010-06-16 16:25 adminfile
however, after executing rm adminfile it really gets removed
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 10 2010-06-16 16:25 adminfile


As i see it - others have only read permision for that file so they shouldnot be able to remove it.. :/

General :: Not Allowed To Unzip A File In DIR?

Feb 25, 2010

I have a problem where I have certain foo.tgz files that are to big to gunzip in a directory, the box that it is on has limited space in /var/tmp for all intents and purposes. I did the standard gunzip -l to see how big the file was.

How can I look in the .tgz to see what files are there and pull out only the ones that I need. tar -t foo.tgz doesn't seem to work or am I doing something wrong?

Once I do find the file how do I only extract the one file from the .tgz, remember I can't uncompress the entire foo.tgz

General :: The KDE Login Screen Now Says "root Logins Are Not Allowed."?

Feb 20, 2010

Something has caused me to be locked out of root; the KDE login screen now says "root logins are not allowed." It's not as though I don't know the password--I set it up. I might have deleted something I'm not supposed to, because before this, root had also become invisible at the KDE login screen.

Server :: RHEL - Not Allowed To Have The Root Password

Dec 12, 2010

I have a server with 2 hard drives in raid for RHEL and 16 harddrives in raid 10 for storage. I was not allowed to have the root password just in case because "we don't give root password". A few days ago it crashed asking for root password for maintenance and had to restore the system to factory settings losing all user settings and updates (wich I paid for every year).

I'm not a linux guru but i can mount the system with a live cd, edit /etc/shadow and delete the root password but what I don't know is the consequence of deleting the root password. Can something go wrong after that? Can it have boot problems or something else? Can they set traps to prevent this?

Server is not connected to internet and it will never be.

Fedora Security :: Why Is Httpd Allowed To Start Binded To Port That's Not Explicitly Allowed?

May 28, 2010

While reading some papers on securing apache with selinux, I have tried to bind httpd to port 3000 expecting to be blocked by the selinux, since port tcp 3000 isn't on the http_port_t list. However I was able to start the service...

I'm preety sure selinux is enforcing. Also, if I bind httpd to tcp 81 selinux denies the start of the service, as expected!Did I miss something? Why is httpd allowed to start binded to a port that's not explicitly allowed?

OpenSUSE :: Spaces Allowed In-between Words In A File?

Jan 12, 2011

I tried Suse five or six years ago and ran into an issue that was not comfortable to work with so I went back to windows. The problem was open spaces between words was not permitted with my music files. I have transferred all of my CDs and LPs to MP3 and have a tremendous number of them and the Suse of five years ago required I convert a title like Foggy Mountain Special.mp3 into something resembling Foggy_Mountain_Special.mp3

I don't care to convert literally a hundred thousand titles to fit the latter format. Does the current version of Suse allow the use of spaces between the words or is the 'no open space' convention still required?

Server :: Symbolic Link Not Allowed When File Is Bigger Than 4GB?

Feb 21, 2010

i contacted my datacenter and they say it is a browser error

but i contact some1 els and he says it isnt a browser error so he asked me to check the log files

this is what i found in my log files

[Sun Feb 21 16:36:01 2010] [error] [client] Symbolic link not allowed: /home/server/public_html/files/8/9x7s9tjosopkzb/rzr-prot - BoosterKing - .iso as you see , it says not allowed

but for files smaller then 4GB is it fine (i tryed it out to 1 GB files and they are fine )

the script i use is a download script and it creates symbolic links to hide the real location of the file and to limit the download to 1 ip only (its a download script :P)

General :: Cannot Open File In RW Mode - Filling Root File System With Log Files

Nov 3, 2010

I work for a company that makes portable devices running Linux and I was recently asked to make the underlying file system read-only for "security" purposes. Since the distribution is based on LinuxFromScratch, I know that very little writing happens at run time. So, even if the device runs on a usb flash device, I doubt that putting the root file system RO will be that beneficial. I am actually more concerned about a process actually breaking because it cannot open a file in RW mode than a process going rogue and filling the root file system with log files, etc. I'd really like to ear what kind of advantages disadvantages there really is with read-only file-systems.
