    • Checking tables

        

      There are three ways to check tables. All of these work with MyISAM tables, the default, non-transactional table type, and one with InnoDB, the most mature of the MySQL transactional table types. Fortunately, MySQL now allows you to check tables while the server is still running, so corruption in a minor table need not affect everything on the server.

        
         
      •  The CHECK TABLE SQL statement (obviously the server must be running for this)   
      •  Running the mysqlcheck command-line utility (the server can be running)   
      •  Running the myisamchk command-line utility (the server must be down, or the tables inactive)

  • Hide the server version

        <!-- .entry-meta --> 
    <!-- .entry-header -->  
     

    By default on most Linux systems, Apache, MySQL PHP and SSH broadcast their version information to make it easier to detect problems. While it does not actually add security to hide the version ouput (see Security through Obscurity), especially bigger companies might have policies that force you to disable it.

  • Hide DNS Software Version

     

    Sometimes a new vulnerability is found in DNS software and script kiddies are scanning the Internet to exploit unpatched systems. It's a best practice to hide software version on your DNS servers, although this is not a real protection it just makes a little harder to find your servers via scanning.

  • SSH Frequently Asked Questions

      

    When I connect to the SSH server port, I see a version announcement like this:

      

    % telnet SERVER 22 Trying 192.168.1.1... Connected to SERVER (192.168.1.1). Escape character is '^]'. SSH-1.99-OpenSSH_2.5.2p2 
      I don't like this — it's announcing the protocol and specific software package and version to the world, so the nasty hackers will know just what attacks to try. Can I turn this off?

    • To configure an unauthenticated CIFS share, click “Wizard”, then click the “Next” button twice to display the screen shown in Figure 10.4b. Complete the following fields in this screen:

       
         
      1. Share name: input a name for the share that is useful to you. In this example, the share is named cifs_insecure.
      2.  
      3. Click the button for “Windows (CIFS)” and check the box for “Allow Guest”.
      4.  
      5. Click the “Ownership” button. Click the drop-down “User” menu and select “nobody”. Click the “Return” button to return to the previous screen.
      6.  
      7. Click the “Add” button. If you forget to do this, the share will not be created. Clicking the “Add” button will add an entry to the “Name” frame with the name that you typed into “Share name”.

  • The Oracle public yum server offers a free and convenient way to install the latest Oracle Linux packages as well as packages from the Oracle VM installation media via a yum client.

      

    You can download the full Oracle Linux and Oracle VM installation media via edelivery.oracle.com/linux. To stay current on errata updates, you may wish to subscribe to the Oracle Linux errata mailing list.

      

    This yum server is offered without support of any kind. If you require support, please consider purchasing Oracle Linux Support via the online store, or via your sales representative

  • Open source software for creating private and public clouds

  • Free Updates and Errata for Oracle Linux 

         
     

    ISO images of the Oracle Linux installation media as well as individual binary RPMs (and the sources) of major and minor releases (Updates) have always been freely available for download, use and distribution, ever since we started the Oracle Linux support program.

     

    We're now taking this a step further: in addition to the above, we will now also provide updated packages or errata for free from separate yum repositories on http://public-yum.oracle.com. If you would like to keep your Oracle Linux system up to date, you can now do so by subscribing your system to the respective "_latest" repository for your distribution, e.g. "ol6_latest" for Oracle Linux 6. See the installation instructions on the public yum front page and the "How to subscribe to the free Oracle Linux errata yum repositories" article on the OTN Garage blog for details on how enable these repositories and to obtain the updates.

      For those of you who are pulling your hair out on this one, Vmware has provided the solution solution in this document: http://www.vmware.com/files/pdf/Timekeeping-In-VirtualMachines.pdf

         

      The pertinent part of the document quoted below:

         

      "A virtual HPET was introduced with Virtual Hardware version 8 (which first appeared in ESX 5.0, Workstation 8.0 and Fusion 4.0). It runs in apparent time. Currently supported guest operating systems do not require a HPET, but some will use a HPET if one is present (including Windows Vista and later, and many versions of Linux). It can be disabled by setting hpet0.present=FALSE in the VM's configuration."

         

      Step by Step
      1) Turn off your FreeNAS virtual machine
      2) Edit settings on the FreeNAS virtual machine
      3) Click on Options Tab
      4) Click on General under Advanced
      5) Click the Configuration Parameters Button on the bottom right
      6) Change hpet0.present from true to false.
      7) Click Start

  • Technical debt (also known as design debt[1] or code debt) is a recent metaphor referring to the eventual consequences of poor system design, software architecture or software development within a codebase. The debt can be thought of as work that needs to be done before a particular job can be considered complete or proper. If the debt is not repaid, then it will keep on accumulating interest, making it hard to implement changes later on. Unaddressed technical debt increases software entropy.

  • So the analogy is this: every time you don’t write software based on the best possible practices and understanding of the business domain, you incur it in a technical debt. This debt keeps increasing over time, just like an interest, because whoever has to change something has to deal with the imperfect concepts you codified on the first occasion. If you ignore it long enough, you can go technically bankrupt, where the codified concepts do not reflect anymore the domain you’re working on.
