For a long time, my password tracking system was quite simplistic:
hope I remembered the right passwords for each site or record
them in an ordinary word-processor document. Such methods obviously
have great flaws. I might have a hard time remembering a password for an
infrequently used site, and a word-processor document isn't the most
secure place to store passwords. more>>
Bitcoin mining is so last year. Put your expensive GPU to use
When the Bitcoin mining craze hit its peak, I felt the tug to join this new
community and make some easy money. I wasn't drawn only by the money; the
concepts behind Bitcoin mining intrigued me, in particular the new use of
graphics processors (GPUs). With a moderately expensive video card, you
could bring in enough money to pay off your initial investment and your
electricity bill in a relatively short time.
iptables is the user-space tool for configuring firewall rules in the
Linux kernel. It is actually a part of the larger netfilter framework.
Perhaps because iptables is the most visible part of the netfilter framework,
the framework is commonly referred to collectively as iptables.
iptables has been the Linux firewall solution since the 2.4 kernel.
Imagine this: you're sitting in your local coffee shop sucking down
your morning caffeine fix before heading into the office. You catch
up on your work e-mail, you check Facebook and you upload that financial

constructive morning. By the time you get to work, there's a
whirlwind of chaos throughout the office. more>>
Tails is a live media Linux distro designed boot into a highly secure desktop environment. You may remember that we looked at a US government distro with similar aims a few months ago, but Tails is different because it is aimed at the privacy conscious “normal user” rather than government workers. more>>
As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.
Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.
In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
