Ubuntu :: How To Report Malicious Software

Jan 16, 2010

Having recently gone on an interview with a company that attempted to con me into writing malware for Linux desktops (which made the assumption that javascript and flash were present), I am concerned about this.I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 9.10 desktop x86-64. I wanted to download a free documentary via bit torrent but don't trust bit torrent sites and needed to be able to search for seeds from the client. I installed Vuze (formerly Azureus) from repo. I opened the client and searched for my file and BLAMO!, twenty or so notices came up about me needing an anti-virus, trojans being on computer, etc. Clearly this phishing attempt was directed at a Windows machine, however the behavior of the application is unacceptable. I haven't checked to see if any files were downloaded or nasty tracking cookies created (though I did get one prompt for my password), but I was curious: Is there a place to report potentially malicious or unsound applications in an Ubuntu recognized repo?

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?

Security :: Could Not Grab Mouse - Malicious Client Eavesdropping?

Oct 16, 2010

After visiting (and being booted from) pclinuxos.com's forum, I am getting the following error message on my system:Could not grab your mouse. A malicious client may be eavesdropping on your session or you may have just clicked a menu or some application just decided to get focus. Try again. I get this if I try to launch Unetbootin, Synaptic, Firewall... Did they put something into my puter? Or is some stuff simply broken after the latest update?

Security :: Firefox Plugin Decodes Malicious Websites?

Apr 15, 2010

A computer security researcher has released a plugin for Firefox that provides a wealth of data on Web sites that may have been compromised with malicious code.

The plugin, called Fireshark, was released on Wednesday at the Black Hat conference. The open-source free tool is designed to address the shortcomings in other programs used to analyze malicious Web sites, said Stephan Chenette, a principal security researcher at Websense, which lets Chenette develop Fireshark in the course of his job.

Ubuntu :: Where To Report A Bug In Rhythmbox

Jul 26, 2010

I want to report a bug in rhythmbox. But apparently, it doesn't use launchpad, it uses Gnome Bug Tracker. But where is this located? I can't find Rhythmbox in bugzilla. Goggling for "gnome bug tracker" doesn't bring up anything useful.

Ubuntu :: How To Report An Error

Jul 26, 2010

Ubuntu :: How To Report A Bug In The Installer

Mar 20, 2011

I just installed 11.04 alpha 3 and I found a bug in the installer. Even though I told it to install the boot loader on /dev/sda7, it installed it on /dev/sda and messed up my other settings. I would like to report a bug, however, when I go to Launchpad and select "report Ubuntu bug" I get sent to this page:[URL]I can see how to report a bug for a currently running process (which would be hard if the process has just crashed), I can see how to request new software/features, but there is nothing for the installer.

Ubuntu :: Bug Report (with Workaround): Kmenuedit?

Mar 26, 2010

There is an issue with kmenuedit. It was complaining that it couldn't write to /home/usuariokubuntu/.kde/share/config/kmenueditrc. But even running it with sudo, the behavior was strange (the applications weren't saved at the menu, and everything was very slow - like taking 40 seconds to create a new item at the menu). It seems that the problem was that the file /home/usuariokubuntu/.kde/share/config/kmenueditrc was setted as owner and group as "root". I've changed the ownership and the group of that file to the user owner of home (in my case, usuariokubuntu), and it is working fine now. So, I would life to report this, so developers can fix the issue. I've upgraded a completely clean instalation of kubuntu 9.04 to 9.10, so I don't know if the issue also happens when directly installing 9.10.

Ubuntu :: Multiple Times To Report A Bug, But Can't?

Sep 2, 2010

I have tried multiple times to report a bug, but can't. All I can find is this USELESS guide: [URL]Is this seriously the ONLY way to report a bug? I can't just fill out a form somewhere without running software to do it? When I try to do it the way explained in the guide, it tells me that I'm using a stable version of Xubuntu, and that only people running dev versions (like 11.10) can report bugs.Are they saying that all stable releases are perfect in every way? Surely one must be able to report a bug for them...?

Ubuntu :: Weather Report Applet Not Updating?

Jul 20, 2010

Starting yesterday the weather report applet 2.30.0 stopped updating at prescribed intervals. I have it set to check automatically for updated information every 5 minutes. It seems to be updating once an hour or more. The last two updates were at 53 minutes past the hour. In the past it has never went more than 10 minutes without an update. This is happening with two machines. I tried un-installing from the panel and reinstalling. I think I will try removing completely with synoptic package manager and reinstalling.

Ubuntu :: How To Report Bugs In Documentation Pages?

Jan 17, 2011

How does one report bugs in the Ubuntu Documentation wiki? For instance, this page [URL] say there is a a tree entry /apps/gnome-system-tools/users yet I do not see any gnome-system-tools entry.It would be preferable that any Ubuntu documentation about gui related interface also list a how to do the change via command line, since that is more reliable than the ever changing gui stuff.

Fedora :: Should File A New Bug Report?

May 17, 2010

I've been having problems with pdf files made using latex (dvi->ps->pdf). I found a reported bug in bugzilla by searching the error message and made a comment. The 'problem' is that the bug is filed under evince, but I'm pretty sure it is in ghostscript. Should I file another bug in the ghostscript section, or will the clever people at bugzilla work it out once they get round to this particular bug (it's marked as low priority)?

The bug report can be found here[URL]..The bug is more annoying than anything else, so any advice is welcome.

Software :: PDF Report From Cacti 0.87e?

Nov 16, 2010

I have installed Cacti 0.87e in fedora 11. And it is working fine. But as per our organizational requirement, they want report as pdf format. I have installed nmidcreate pdf also for the same. It generates the report in pdf format but the content of the pdf is blank i.e. it does not contain any graph or value in the report. It shows only header and footer information, nothing more than that. Kindly resolve this issue, either using the above mentioned plugin or other else. Because this is an urgent requirement. I am waiting for your affirmative response.

Ubuntu :: Exclamation Sign In Toolbar - Crashing Report Detected

Mar 1, 2010

When I'm not connected with the LAN, I have no problem, but when I'm connected the PC frozen in the first boot. Maybe is something related with Firefox, or some specific site (I think gmail). I have many tabs opened, then when I start Firefox they all opened. The first thing I do is read my emails, so I access gmail.

I'm not sure if it is related with Firefox or Gmail. I'll do some tests, like:
1- start the PC and don't use Firefox in the first minutes.
2- start Firefox and don't access gmail

What I think it is interesting is that it only happens once. Well, this is a good thing. There's also an exclamation sign in the Ubuntu tool bar saying "Crashing report detected"

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Mp3s Report Incorrect Length To Amarok

Jun 9, 2010

Some (very few) mp3 files on my hard drive seem to self-report incorrect (much too long) lengths to audio players. I mostly use Amarok, but I've verified that the problem also occurs with other audio players. The files play just fine, but it's annoying that they're listed with incorrect length. Most of my mp3s are encoded using VBR, but I can't imagine that that's a problem ... and if it were, it would be occurring with a lot more files, I'd think.I'm guessing there's a problem with the file header itself on these files. Is there some way I can check this and correct it, if that is the problem? A quick check through Synaptic didn't turn anything useful-looking up, and neither did a search through these forums.

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 on an HP Pavilion dv 6000 with a Centrino Duo processor and 2GB of RAM. I have the Universe, Multiverse, and Medibuntu repositories enabled.
