If like me, you installed ModSecurity on Ubuntu or a Debian machine with something like $ sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-security2 , we might end up clueless trying to find the mod_security.c file (as suggested in a few places) because the LoadModule in the Apache config uses a .so file. But whether you're using Ubuntu, Debian or CentOS, there is an ...

Jan. 23, 2015, midnight by Nitin Venkatesh

chroot jails keep your users locked in a directory and not let them wander about the filesystem to places they have no business poking their noses into. Alrighty, let's implement this in our vsftpd server so that you don't have your FTP users peeking at the passwd and shadow files. We assume you've already created your FTP user and have ...

Jan. 1, 2015, 3:06 p.m. by Nathan Osman

One of the difficulties faced by fault-tolerant web applications is distributed file storage. Indeed, this is one of the many challenges we face here at 2buntu.
