Security :: Change Location Of Stored Audit Files?

May 5, 2011

We have setup a separate partition to keep our audit files, but I am at a loss to figure out how to redirect the log files to be stored there instead of the default.

I am sure it is a simple matter but I have been unable to locate the information.

Security :: Change The Sys_call_address To Another Location In Memory?

Jan 4, 2010


alexander@osiris:~$ uname -a
Linux osiris 2.6.31-14-generic #48-Ubuntu SMP Fri Oct 16 14:04:26 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

I tried to change the sys_call_address to another location in memory. The result was an OOPS!

sys_call_address is of course not exported, so I found it using:


grep sys_call_table /boot/
c0577150 R sys_call_table

My kernel prog looks like:

#include <linux/string.h>
#include <linux/smp_lock.h>
#include <linux/init.h>
#include <linux/module.h>

When the audit daemon starts and stops, I see DAEMON_START DAEMON_STOP in the audit log. I don't see a rule in audit.rules about logging this event. So, I'm guessing that it's a rule that's built into the audit daemon. Can you confirm this?Also, I've been looking for a explanation of the event types that the audit daemon logs, such as: USER_AUTH, USER_ACCT, CRED_ACQ. If you know of any docs that explain this,

Security :: Audit Daemon Is Not Suspending When /var Partition Is Full?

Aug 20, 2010

I ran a test where I filled up the /var partition. The disk_full_action in auditd.conf is SUSPEND. I was expecting to see a message in /var/log/messages to indicate that the audit daemon was suspended because it did not have any space left on the partition.Why didn't I get these messages? Also, how can I tell if the audit daemon is suspended?

Security :: Setting Up Several Keys In Audit.rules File?

Mar 16, 2011

I am trying to lock down a server using audit.rules. I intend to use ausearch to review certain entries from time to time. I noticed that it's possible to assign a "key" to each rule and then use `ausearch -k` to show only the records that have that key.Unfortunately, the key feature seems broken. I started with the following rule in audit.rules:

-a always,exit -F arch=b64 -S open -S openat -F exit=-EACCES -k deny
I do a `cat /etc/shadow` and a `ausearch -ts today -k deny` and it seems all went well.

I'm using RHEL 5 with the Enhanced Security. Using the suggest NISPOM Red Hat documented settings (located on the system; copy - paste) I have managed to audit failed file open accesses however, this setting only retained if I enter it at the command line (/sbin/auditctl -a ).

Ubuntu Security :: How To Change Permissions To Allow EXE And JAR Files

Apr 4, 2011

I've been using Ubuntu for a few years and I am having issues trying to load .jar files and .exe files in Wine. I keep getting an error message that says my computer doesn't have permission to load these files. I've done some research and found people saying to enable the file as executable in the files properties, to enable executable in the permissions folder, and to allow source code on the Ubuntu Software screen, but whenever I try to check these boxes, they immediately revert to having a line through them instead. I remember when I was running Ubuntu a few years ago I was able to completely disable this restriction in terminal, but I can't remember what I did.

Ubuntu Security :: Iptables - Where To Find IP's That's Stored With RECENT

Apr 18, 2010

I'm playing around with iptables on Ubuntu 10.04 Beta2.


That's what I got so far. Accoring to iptables man pages: "/proc/net/ipt_recent/* are the current lists of addresses and information about each entry of each list." There's nothing like that there on my Ubuntu installation. There's a file that's called /proc/net/ip_tables_matches. However, it doesn't contain the information I'm looking for. It contains:


where I can find the file where iptables stores the matching IPs? Also, can anyone verify that I have put the rules in the right order for them to work?

Ubuntu Security :: Configuring A New Stored Secret In Seahorse?

Oct 16, 2010

how can I configure a new "stored secret" in Seahorse? Or System > Preferences > Passwords and encryption keys, in a free translation from Brazilian Portuguese "Senhas e chaves de criptografia"? For instance, let's say I want to add a stored secret to be used with Skype: in Seahorse (Ubuntu 10.10), I clicked on Files > New > Stored secret, select the "login" keyring, type "Skype" in the description field and my skype password in the "Password" field and finally click "Add". But when I right-click the new secret > Properties, I can't change or type anything in the "Details" or "Applications" tabs, So, how can I inform Seahorse how, when or with what should it use my secret?

Ubuntu Security :: Checking If Anyone Is Viewing Passwords Stored In FireFox?

Jun 16, 2010

As I am a paranoid bastard, I made a bash screencap-script for my Ubuntu-computer, so I can check if anyone uses my computer for things I don't want them to do (eg. checking if anyone is viewing passwords stored in FireFox, looking at private files, or other things I find disturbing). There might be other people than me that is paranoid and want to monitor what's going on on their computers while they are away or letting someone else use their computer when going to the bathroom.

This is a small script, I'd like to hear if there is any improvements that can be done, so I can learn more and become better at such scripting.

The script requires Imagick (sudo apt-get install imagemagick) and a folder in the ~-directory (/home/username) called ".screen" (hidden, as this makes it more difficult to "intruders" to find it and it looks more like a system-folder than a monitoring-folder).

The script:



Add this script to /usr/local/bin and then go to keyboard-shortcuts in GNOME and add a shortcut-key-combination of your own choice for the script. Call it whatever you'd like, and the command you want to run is simply "screen". To add a shortcut for stopping the script, you add another shortcut-key-combination to the command "killall screen".

This enables you to monitor activity on your computer while you're away, saving png-screenshots of your desktop every three seconds in the folder /home/username/.screen/date.

NOTE: I'm not taking any responsibility for what you do with this script. Remember that monitoring someone's activities is never the right way to handle anything. Also, it's illegal many places. Take care and use it only for educational and testing purposes.

Fedora :: Where Are Stored PWs For Remote Desktop Viewer Stored?

Oct 20, 2010

I have machine that I used to VNC to on my network with Remote Desktop Viewer from my Fedora 12. When I first connected I checked the checkbox that I wanted to store the pw. Now the pw on the other machine has changed but Remote Desktop Viewer does not ask for a new password, it just gives me a black screen, like I am connected but I can't see anything. I'd like to know if anyone knows where this pw data is stored on the system so I can start fresh. I already tried uninstalling Remote Desktop Viewer and installing it again.

Nov 27, 2010

I am trying to install Lubuntu 10.10 in a VirtualBox 3.0.14 guest on Mac OS X 10.4 with the hopes of getting Guest Additions installed and working.

From prior experience I tend to go through the install process more than once which involves downloading the updates and any necessary apt-get files multiple times.

So, where do these files get stored? I would like to then save them to a separate disk mount, so I can use them on a subsequent install...which is second can do that?

Ubuntu :: Need To Access Stored Files After Disaster

Jan 4, 2011

I am new to Linux. I was running Ubuntu 10.04. While downloading software, one of my downloads changed changed my OS to Xubuntu. From browsing the available software, I surmised(wrongfully it turned out) that files starting were X files. In Synaptic, I deleted all files starting with X. This I found is a form of hari kari. When I boot up now, I have a choice of straight to Ubuntu or "Help" mode. If I boot up straight, I get to Ubuntu logo and it hangs up running the dots between red and green and I give a warm boot to restart. If I choose the "Help" route, I go thru what a windows user would call DOS commands or activity. At the end of whatever it is doing, it asks for user ID and password. I give it those and I am given a command line. I don't know what to do with this. I would like to access my stored files and save them. If nothing can be done to save them, I will just start over by reinstalling 10.04. BTW I am running 7.1 from an old boot disc. Is there some way that I can retrieve my files?

Ubuntu :: Command Line To Copy Files From One Location To Another / Retain Source Files Group / User?

Feb 20, 2011

Is there a method at the command line to copy files from one location to another and retain the source files group and user?I'm migrating some MySQL files from one machine to another.I want to back-up the original files in the directory presently. They have owner:group of mysql, some have owner:group root:mysql and so on. To copy them under cli or Nautilus everything changes to root for I execute sudo cp or gksudo nautilus and copy via gui.

Since it is MySQL data I could simply do a dump of the database and restore it on the other machine. But there's about 20 db's and I want to do this via a copy for it will be faster - at least that is what I think.

General :: Use Bacula To Make Backups Of The Files Stored On The Server?

Apr 14, 2010

I have an ubuntu (8.04.3) server where I use bacula to make backups of the files stored on the server. Ive been trying to find a solution (with no luck) trying to succesfully implement the following:-

A Backup tape for each day of the week besides Thurs which is resused on a weekly basis. For the thursday tapes we have a backup tape corresponding to the week number that the thursday falls so for the first thursday of the month it would be ThursOne For example. These tapes are resued on a monthly basis. We then have a monthly tape that is used on the last thursday of the month. These tapes will be resused on a yearly basis.

Another requirement is just in case a tape is accidently not changed a backup should still occur regardless of what tape is in the drive (so if its tuesday and mondays tape is still in the tape drive it should rewrite that tape).

I did have this successfully set up where the tape was appended after each use rather than being recycled after the nightly backup. But then after a few weeks I would have to manually purge tapes when they became full (which isnt ideal - as Im not always in the office so in my absence it may be that a backup may not take place), so have been playing around and have now got the tapes to be marked as used after a max of 2 jobs (so the backup of the files and the catalog of the night). I also added this line 'Recycle Current Volume = yes' so that it would hopefully recycle the volume in the drive.

However what I am finding is that the tape that should be recycled is not, but in yesterday case the Mondays tape was recycled rather than the Tuesday although Mondays was the last written so Im not even sure why it choose to recycle this tape.
