FBI Tor Malware Analysis – [...] In April 2013, a piece of malware was found embedded in Freedom Hosting's darknet server that would exploit a security hole in a particular web browser and execute code on the user's computer. This code gathered some information about the user and sent it to a server in Virginia and then crashed – it had no obvious malicious intent that is so characteristic of malware. It was therefore theorised that the FBI, who have offices in Virginia, and who have 'form' for writing malware, may have authored it – this now appears to be true. [...]

IBM AIX and Microsoft Active Directory integration with Kerberos and LDAP – LDAP works well for storing and retrieving user attributes for AIX users, but using LDAP for the authentication piece still requires the user to have an AIX password and an AD password. Kerberos allows AIX to authenticate the user against the user's Microsoft Windows® password, using native AD protocols.

DNSViz | A DNS visualization tool – DNSViz is a tool for visualizing the status of a DNS zone. It was designed as a resource for understanding and troubleshooting deployment of the DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC). It provides a visual analysis of the DNSSEC authentication chain for a domain name and its resolution path in the DNS namespace, and it lists configuration errors detected by the tool.
intoDNS: checks DNS and mail servers health – IntoDNS checks the health and configuration and provides DNS report and mail servers report. And provides suggestions to fix and improve them, with references to protocols’ official documentation.
Master & Slave PowerDNS – LinuxManage.com – In this short tutorial we will show you how to configure powerdns running as master and slave. For this tutorial purpose, master powerdns host will have ip address 192.168.56.3 and hostname ns1.example.com, slave ip: 192.168.56.4 and hostname: ns2.example.com
Sendmail relay configuration on AIX | Leave No Bit Unturned – This document describes how to set up a Sendmail e-mail gateway or relay which will be able to process incoming mail and route it to different mail servers based on domain information. The routing table is based on the Sendmail mailertable feature instead of the usual MX record based routing. This will come handy when there is a need to route mail internally in a different way than externally.
* Go through a large list of servers. * SSH them and determine whether the server is AIX. * If so, it will go through all disks, returning their type. * It will do all of this completely in parallel in batch at 25 sub-processes at a time.
Recovering a lost partition table with a VMFS volume | vInfrastructure Blog – Vi possono essere diversi motivi che portano alla perdita della tabella delle partizioni o alla sua corruzione. Nel caso di datastore VMFS le possibili cause sono: resignature da un altro sistema (ad esempio il backup server, nel caso funzioni in SAN mode), un errore umano (basta eseguire, su dischi condivisi, da vSphere Client un Datastore / Delete da un ESXi non ancora collegato al vCenter Server), o anche a causa di qualche problema lato storage (mi è capitato proprio questo caso di recente su uno storage entry level)[...]
(Mi è capitato, ho seguito la kb di vmware e ne sono uscito. Comunque sto sudando ancora adesso…)
