Security :: Run Intrusion Detection System On Regularly Updated Desktop?

Apr 1, 2010

My desktop (the system AIDE runs on) is reguarly updated, and the file output can become enormous, making it hard, if not impossible, to track down out of place files. I have recently thought of uninstalling it since I can't tell what is out of place and what isn't, but before I do that I wanted to ask everyones opinion regarding what would be the best way to handle such a program on a desktop that has some core files changed reguarly. This sytem is running Gentoo, so updates affect a number of directories.

Ubuntu :: System Is Updated But Desktop Looks The Same

Sep 4, 2010

I have updated Ubuntu all the way to 10.04, but the desktop environment still keeps its old looks. For example, the GNOME panel has the old, light grey colour rather than the new, dark grey. The new greyscale icons for battery and wireless aren't in place either.

What shall I do to bring it up to date either immediately or when 10.10 comes out?

Ubuntu Security :: Is Live Cd Totally Secure From Intrusion?

Mar 11, 2010

Is an ubuntu live cd totally secure from intrusion? Stated another way, even if someone knows my ip address, can the live cd environment be hacked into in any way so that another could monitor what I am doing on my computer? From my understanding the live cd is read only, so that would prevent anything malicious being installed on it. I am curious if there are other ways a box running a live cd could be tapped into.

Fedora Security :: SELinux Prevents Httpd From Reading Homes - Intrusion Attempt?

Aug 30, 2010

the following security alert made me checking my httpd.conf:


SELinux is preventing the http daemon from reading users' home directories. Detailed Description: SELinux has denied the http daemon access to users' home directories. Someone is attempting to access your home directories via your http daemon. If you have not setup httpd to share home directories, this probably signals an intrusion attempt. Even though in httpd.conf there is a line that reads

LoadModule userdir_module modules/
in the same conf-file the access to home-dirs is disabled:
<IfModule mod_userdir.c>

Debian :: Desktop Theme Regularly Disappears

Jan 6, 2011

I've been a very happy user of Debian Squeeze (gnome) for a few months already.

Everything works great, but I am encountering an annoying, and regular problem: almost every time I update my system (through synaptic) and reboot, my desktop theme gets reset to the more "blocky" default gnome one.

What I do is run "gnome-settings-daemon," either as normal or super user, reboot, and get back my chosen original theme.

Debian Multimedia :: Upgrade System From Jessie To Stretch - Second Screen Detection

Dec 31, 2015

I recently upgrade my system from Jessie to Stretch, with no problem. A little later I upgrades Enlightenment from e17 to e20, and at some point shortly after that the second screen stopped working.

The nvidia X Server Settings correctly identifies both screens. But Enlightenment and xrandr does not see the second one at all. The second screen are on and the pointer moves correctly onto it, but no activity with left or right click. I have tried with the original xorg.conf, and generated a new one with nvidia-xconfig, but no difference. No obvious errors in any log-files either.

There was a security update (to fix compromised HTTPS certificates) to Chromium on 17 March (10.0.648.151) but my Chromium still hasn't updated. Did Ubuntu drop the ball here or is this just affecting my box? I'm considering switching to Google Chrome--to get security updates promptly.

I synchronise my data disk to a backup disk daily. Yesterday I noticed that rsync listed in its output my password-managers directory, which contains an old Keepass database and other Windows password programs I used long ago. I haven't accessed this directory in ages, so I was wondering why rsync felt the need to list itthe directories it updated.Modification dates and last accessed dates are what I would expect; nothing recen

Ubuntu Installation :: Keeping Software Updated For Security Reasons?

Jan 7, 2010

I've recently built a VM appliance using Ubuntu 8.04 that is given to customers for an easy deployment of our software. Ubuntu works great in a VM and its perfect for our software (which is a web application).

Some customers are paranoid (rightfully so) and they will run a vulnerability assessment on the web application. A particular customers' assessment fails as it finds that the appliance isn't running the latest version the Apache web server. I thought that just running "apt-get upgrade" would upgrade all of the software packages to the latest so that failures in the assessment caused by outdated software packages would be resolved... However this is not the case...

I realize that there is a probably a whole process for submitting/approving the latest versions of software packages in Ubuntu, that then get pushed to the repositories - But how does this work? What exactly does "apt-get upgrade" do if it doesnt upgrade packages to the latest?

For example: I need Apache 2.2.11 to fix a particular vulnerability. But when running apt-get upgrade, it doesnt actually upgrade the Apache version number (or any of the other packages). I'm stuck on Apache 2.2.8, and I can't find a .DEB installer for 2.2.11 or later.

Slackware :: Security Page Been Updated To Include Latest Firefox?

I'm on the Slackware Security mailing list and I check the Slackware Security Advisory page daily because the mailing list, for me at least, is unreliable. After Firefox nagged me about a security update, I went to one of the FTP mirrors to check for an update and the Firefox update was there, but it still hasn't shown up on the official Slackware Security update page.

Ubuntu Installation :: Nvidia Booting - Automatically Boot To The Gdm/desktop After Updated Gpu Driver?

Oct 11, 2010

Hey everyone I'm pretty new to ubuntu/linux so please bear with me . I recently installed 10.10 on my new htpc. The initial install went great, until I went to install the updated driver for my graphics card. What I did was I downloaded the driver off of nvidia. Then I did these steps:

1. ctrl-alt-f1

2. logged in

3. sudo services gdm stop

4. I then located the driver package that I downloaded and ran it, it seemed to install fine (except for an error about some install script? but it let me proceed)

5. sudo services gdm start

It went to the gdm/ubuntu desktop. However I then connected it via HDMI, and the resolution was way off (top bar was not even displayed on TV) and I tried many different settings but no luck in fixing it. Next after restarting it did not automatically boot to the gdm/desktop. Instead it stayed at the command line login (the ctrl-alt-f1 screen).

tl;dr : 1. How to make it automatically boot to the gdm/desktop after I updated my gpu driver

2. How to fix the resolution for HDMI from my gpu to my TV. (DVI works fine
