Ubuntu :: Restricting Users To A Specific Folder And Its Subfolders

Dec 29, 2010

I wanted to restrict users within a particular folder say /var/lib/tomcat/webapps. I want the users to see all subfolders inside webapps and work with it (edit+read but no delete). I understood that chroot is the way, and i read this [URL] community discussion, but what i understand out of it is, they are trying to give a complete working installation of ubuntu to the user within a directory which i dont want to.

Security :: Restricting Remote Users From Accessing Removable Media?

Mar 17, 2011

I run a system that users may log into either remotely or physically. Multiple users may be logged in simultaneously because of the remote access, but only one user can be physically logged in at a time.With the current setup, however, if the physical user inserts a flash drive (which the OS mounts automatically) then the remote users gain access to the removable media.

Fedora :: Mailing List - Mailman Or Majordomo?

Oct 9, 2010

I've got a general question : I am using F13 for servers... I planned to use a mailing list now.

1) Which one would you recommend ? Mailman or Majordomo ?
2) I am looking for the possibility to get feedback of the mailing list.. ( Who opened, how many times..etc... )

Does Mailman provide this kind of info? (I didn't find anything on this during my first research). If not, which additional software can do it?

mailman configured with postfix & dovecot on the same server. Postfix & dovecot configured using iredmail script. This situation is possibly caused by dovecot LDA but I do not know how to configure it to recognize mailman lists I'm using RHEL 5.5

Here's my configs:

alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/aliases, hash:/etc/mailman/aliases

Ubuntu :: Gwibber Not Posting To

Jan 17, 2011

I haven't ever had this working as I've never tried before today. Gwibber won't post to my account. I'm certain the correct username and web-key have been entered (though Gwibber doesn't tell you one way or the other). It doesn't matter if I try to post via the Gwibber interface or the indicator-applet-session textbox... neither work. No error messages.

- I know Gwibber is working because it will post to twitter, facebook, identica, etc.
- I know my account is working because it will post direct from website and/or browser extension

Ubuntu Servers :: Getting Mailman Initial Apache Config?

Mar 23, 2010

I've installed mailman on 9.10, using apt-get, have apache2 setup already. However I'm getting 403 forbidden issues when trying to access [URL] I may have mucked something up as initially i jumped straight in and created a virtualhost and played around with the URL redirects. but as far as I can see, it's back to its default and it's still not working... When I try to access the page, in my apache error.log, i get this:


[Wed Mar 24 02:36:37 2010] [error] [client] attempt to invoke directory as script: /usr/lib/cgi-bin/mailman/

I've tried check_perms, it does give this error:


root@babel:/etc/apache2# check_perms
/var/lib/mailman/templates bad group (has: root, expected list)
/var/lib/mailman/bin bad group (has: root, expected list)
/var/lib/mailman/cgi-bin bad group (has: root, expected list)

Programming :: Posting A Better Solution To A Closed Thread?

Jul 27, 2010

Rather than get in hot (or even slightly-above-comfortable temperature) water for reviving a closed (ca. 2007) thread without moderator permission or acquaintance of the OP personally or by proxy, I'll post this alternate solution (approach?) along with one positive real-world example illustrating how mine is easier to write and is equally reliable, if not altogether better. The thread is here. Their solution:

if [ "$myfilesize" eq "0" ];then echo "$file: the file size is zero"; else echo "$file: the file size is NOT zero"; fi (and this hangs on the output of a stat -c %s command). "Hangs" is probably a most appropriate word. The two outputs, using two different stat options, the same file, and three marginally-different command-line syntaxes I just tried gave me these: First, using their approach, I got this:

tjsfa070929-094.jpg.error: the file size is NOT zero
Even though stat gave me this
>> stat -c %s $file


From where I sit, getting the file type string instead of an integer, which can be equally (if not often more) accurate, makes for an easier time of setting the conditional and, maybe only in terms of a few ticks, a faster script from start to finish. I think my method is better, and proven so to the limits of my knowledge and ability here in this OP.

Software :: System News Program For Posting Binaries?

Apr 1, 2010

It seems strange to me that there are so few newsreader programs for Linux that are good for posting binaries, if they do it at all. For a community with such an ethos of sharing, there sure are a lot of "grab"-only newsreaders!

I have used newspost a lot in the past, but I encounter fatal errors when connecting through stunnel, as I now tend to do, and development seems to be dead with that program. Can anyone recommend any other program - console, X, whatever - that will post multipart binary files?

General :: Restricting 'du' To Child Directories Only?

Feb 15, 2011

I'm trying to write a script that uses the 'du' command to make essentially a text-based filelight type program. It should scan the current directory for the file's sizes and display them in order largest to smallest (or vice versa). The user should be able to go throughout the file tree and see child directories scanned for the sizes as they're accessed. I just need to know one more thing- how can I restrict the displayed results to the current working directory? would a grep for the output of pwd suffice? just getting some thoughts before i try and possibly dig myself a hole.

Fedora :: Restricting User From Changing Own Password In 10?

Jul 16, 2009

I hope I am in the right forum. I have a question about restricting users from being able to change their own passwords in Fedora 10. In Fedora 6, I was able to do this by using passwd with -n and -x flags. If I would set the -n value greater than the -x value, then the user would not be able to change his/her own password. If I do this in Fedora 10, this no longer works

Ubuntu Security :: Restricting User Privileges

Apr 11, 2010

I have searched somewhat this forum but haven't yet found a similar post using the keywords I entered but perhaps there is already a similar post then please refer me to it.I am trying to add a user account "Guest" to allow people on my laptop without giving them access to vital parts of the computer. Basically, I want them to only be able to view their own home directory and access internet. Nothing more.I have set the group to "guest" and changed the other home directories of other users to owner access only.

Guest still has access to root and is still allowed to perform actions in various critical areas (deleting files from for example my Windows 7 partition). This I also want to prevent. I was thinking to set each directory's permissions to Owner and Group only and remove Others access.My questions:

1. Will this have any undesirable impact (programs of main user accounts not able to access certain directories)? For guest user I don't care as long as internet works.
2. When I start User Manager and disable for Guest all options except "access internet" (so I also disable access to CDROM), the guest can still access the CDROM. Does this mean the User Settings menu has no effect or is overruled by something?

Ubuntu Security :: Restricting File Listings ?

Nov 7, 2010

We set up a server with my friend (still newbies ) a couple of months ago using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS server edition and agreed to let some folks at school to use it to install drupal on it for teaching and learning purposes. So the idea is that there are multiple users that all install drupal in their home folders separately using SSH and continue from there on etc.

Everything is set up for that to work (domain, settings etc), but there's one thing nagging me, and that's how everyone can look at everything on the server. They dont have rights to modify anything but can look at file listings and view inside files etc.

So how do I restrict the viewing rights of users to inside their home folder, BUT so that they can use the cd command to go to folders inside their home folder, but not outside of it. As far as I know rbash purely keeps you inside home and allows nothing else, so that doesn't work, because you need the cd command.

Fedora Security :: Restricting Xattr Flags With Selinux ?

Jul 12, 2009

I've got a question about chattr command. is it possible to restrict a root access for this command. what i want is something similar to freebsd behaviour aka the kernel secure level. setting a particular security level results in limiting some operations (i.e changing immutable flags on files) by root. well, if someone gained an access to a machine in some way, nothing would stop him changing the file's flags. so the question is if it can be achieved with selinux?
