Installing and configuring Bareos (Bacula fork) with web front-end on Debian Wheezy.

And taking nice backups easy to be restored.

The story is quiet simple: some times ago I would have liked to have a kind of 8 months old backup for a friend of mine, but it was too late. So now, I want backups with a decent retention.

Ubuntu & Debian FIX java plugin for Firefox and Chrome

How to Fix java plugin in Ubuntu for Firefox/Chrome

The error:

Your browser Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome refuses to execute a java applet because of the security risks related to an old version of java, most likely the jdk1.7.0_40 which has been disabled by Mozilla Firefox plugin mantainers on October the 16th. So you probably want to install jdk1.7.0_45.  Anyway, this said, this procedure will most likely work with following versions of Java, Firefox, Chrome, Ubuntu 🙂 And of course. if you need to install Java for your browsers or operating system and you haven’t yet installed once, just skip the parts with the “rm” command as the rest is the same.

Securing WordPress (or any site) with fail2ban: prevent vuln scanners, flood and bruteforce attack

fail2ban-stopping-scannersHow to secure WordPress using advanced tools like fail2ban.

EDIT

This rules can cut out search engines from your server and they can affects all the sites hosted on the machine you are working on. I’m writing this because at the end it turned out that a better solution to prevent distribuited flooding is to use iptables with custom rules.

Fail2ban is one of my favourite server securing software, because it not only protects against several consequences deriving from being attacked by some script kiddy, but it saves a lot of system resources otherwise wasted serving pages to bots or similar.
I just discovered an annoying and repeated access log entry on my access logs wich leads to a 403/404 (i faked a little tso it makes sense for this article) error page (forbidden) and then i decided to let a specialized software do the job instead of using wordpress plugin, wich ,would act at a php/mysql level having to generate each time server headers, and here again, wasting server resources.

Some of these log entries looked loke this: Continue reading “Securing WordPress (or any site) with fail2ban: prevent vuln scanners, flood and bruteforce attack”
