11:02<FireSlash>Argh, wtf.
11:03<FireSlash>Compromised AGAIN. How are people getting into my linode!?
11:04<FireSlash>I'm running a firewall, all the latest versions of software, even ran some harding programs like bastile.
11:05<FireSlash>I'm not using phpBB or awstats either.
11:05<Redgore>you have a week link somewhere
11:05<FireSlash>I know, but the question is where ><
11:05<Redgore>what distribution ?
11:08<FireSlash>Debian sarge
11:09<Newsome>are they getting root, or some other user?
11:09<FireSlash>Last login for root was from my PC.
11:09<FireSlash>Not sure about other users, does it log user accesses?
11:10<Newsome>well, compromised in what way?
11:10<FireSlash>I don't see any damage.
11:11<Redgore>if you dont see any damage how do you know it was comprimised ?

11:15<FireSlash>From what I can tell, this is the syslog data from the DoS packets. They're spaced about 4 per minute.
11:15<FireSlash>Nov 25 18:25:03 li-253 kernel: IN-internet:IN=eth0 OUT= MAC=fe:fd:40:05:35:fd:00:02:fc:64:d8:af:08:00 SRC=81.138.5.155 DST=64.5.53.253 LEN=56 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=46 ID=27490 DF PROTO=ICMP TYPE=3 CODE=3 [SRC=64.5.53.253 DST=81.138.5.155 LEN=77 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=47 ID=1636 FRAG:64 PROTO=UDP ]
11:16<FireSlash>Same IP eveyr time, but that IP refuses connections. Hmm.
11:16<FireSlash>Its kernel traffic though. wtf.
11:17<Newsome>ICMP...how often are you seeing this? once per second?
11:18|-|Guest373 [~misthos@zeus.misthos.com] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
11:18<@mikegrb>FireSlash: the dos was 15,000 packets per second comming from your node
11:18<@mikegrb>what stuff do you hace installed that didn't come from a debian package?
11:19<FireSlash>Apache, MySQL, PureFTP, bastile, firehol, and any related packages.
11:19<@mikegrb>those weren't installed from debian packages?
11:19<@mikegrb>why?
11:20<FireSlash>Err, wait.
11:20<FireSlash>Everything from debian packages.
11:20<FireSlash>Those just didin't come pre-installed :P
11:20<FireSlash>Everything on my linode came via apt, and I do update/upgrade weekly if not more often.
11:20<Newsome>what sort of web pages do you serve?
11:21<@mikegrb>you don't have any php applications at all?
11:21<FireSlash>Oh right, php4
11:21<@mikegrb>no, php applications, beside php itself
11:21<FireSlash>Only stuff I've written myself.
11:22<FireSlash>And I look out for exploitable holes like SQL injection and such
11:22<@mikegrb>any users beside yourself?
11:22<FireSlash>Nope.
11:24<Newsome>the php pages you've written, any upload scripts or anything?
11:24<FireSlash>No.
11:25<FireSlash>The only ones that were even potentially dangerous were removed after the last time this happened >>
11:26<FireSlash>.........wtf.
11:26<FireSlash>Nov 25 13:27:05 li-253 sshd[9586]: Failed password for root from ::ffff:202.107.
11:26<FireSlash>195.52 port 57340 ssh2
11:26<FireSlash>SSH requests root?
11:26<FireSlash>Oh wait. Duh.
11:26<FireSlash>Mixing up SSL and SSH this early ><
11:27<FireSlash>I don't see anything suspicious in the user logs.
11:27<FireSlash>Worst I found was someone connection spamming my FTP, probably trying to get root access. (Which is happily DENIED)
11:28<@mikegrb>no, most likely looking for anonymous ftp servers allowing upload
11:28<FireSlash>Or that.
11:28<@mikegrb>I get a few hundred attempts a day
11:29<FireSlash>I'm running out of potential entry points here mike :/
11:30<FireSlash>Just ran apt again, nothing new.
11:31<Newsome>does debian have a way to verify checksums of installed packages & binaries?
11:32<adamg>the newer apt does gpg checking
11:33<adamg>I do not know which debian distros that is in though
11:35<adamg>dont think the one in stable has it
11:35<FireSlash>Oh fucking hell.
11:35<FireSlash>69.192.207.113 - - [21/Nov/2005:09:21:03 -0500] "GET /phpmyadmin/phpinfo.php HTT
11:35<FireSlash>P/1.0" 200 12055 "-" "Wget/1.10" "-"
11:35<FireSlash>Thats getting fixed, right now.
11:36<FireSlash>But I don't think that would allow DoSing.
11:41<FireSlash>mike, has this happened to any other debian linodes?
11:42|-|ronpoz [~ronpoz@ool-45700306.dyn.optonline.net] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
11:44<@mikegrb>no
11:46<FireSlash>Well, I can't seem to find any suspect entry point ><
11:46<FireSlash>Any ideas?
11:46<FireSlash>Logs look clean, no alterations were made or suspect logins.
11:49<FireSlash>Except maybe this.................
11:49<FireSlash>na-46-135.na.avantel.net.mx <-- last login from my user account.
11:49<FireSlash>Though, I might have just logged in somewhere wierd, thats plausable. Nothing strange was done as far as I can tell.
11:51<FireSlash>Yep. Its clean.
11:51<@mikegrb>logged in somewhere weird? like from a mexican broadband provider?
11:51<FireSlash>Hmm. good point.
11:52<FireSlash>But it looks like my usual traffic o.O
11:52<@mikegrb>didn't know they provided service all the way up in ohio, pretty big service footprint
11:52<@mikegrb>it is trivial to remove stuff from .bash_history and such
11:52<FireSlash>Hmm. Point and check.
11:53<FireSlash>Question of the week: How'd they get access to my user account o.O
11:54<FireSlash>Changed the password for good measure, but I'd doubt they guessed it.
11:55<@mikegrb>or you could just disable passwords completely
11:55<FireSlash>?
11:55<FireSlash>Limit allowed IPs?
11:56<FireSlash>Great idea, except my ISP changes to different IP groups every fucking week.
11:56<@mikegrb>no, use ssh keys instead of passwords
11:59<FireSlash>But heres where it gets fun mike: Theres no log of them ever accessing SSH
11:59<FireSlash>That IP isn't in the auth logs.
12:00<FireSlash>And even if they did alter the logs, there'd still be a session close log .
12:01<FireSlash>and no, telnet isn't running.
12:04<@mikegrb>[11:49] <FireSlash> na-46-135.na.avantel.net.mx <-- last login from my user account.
12:05<@mikegrb>you said there was a log of it
12:05<FireSlash>Isn't that the last login from any program, not specifically Ssh?
12:12<FireSlash>Well, making some auth changes, password changes, I'm getting tired of people breaking into my freaking server ><
12:13<FireSlash>I'll set up SSH keys, per your suggestion. Can't hurt.

17:38<internat>im soo glad my node has never been compromised..
17:38<internat>i would really hate to have to reinstall and all of that
17:40<fo0bar>internat: that's why you should rsync the contents to another host once per week or so
17:41<taupehat>bah
17:41<taupehat>a compromise is nothing but an excuse to do things differently next time
17:41<internat>touche
17:42<internat>yeah.. its annoying, cause thats one of the reasons i hate using my own php scripts, incase i fuck up, but even more so i hate using others incase they have fucked up and its more widely known
17:43<internat>that is going to be one of the things im going to do this holidays, work out how to rsync my /etc my /home and /root
17:43<internat>maybe dpkg dump a current package listing, and then ship everything off
17:44<internat>and on that note, is there any decent blogging software floating arround that is easy to port to multiple ppl on multiple domains

18:45<fo0bar>with the exception of going to the corner taco place, I am proud to say I didn't leave the house yesterday
18:45<fo0bar>damn crowds
18:46<Redgore>I suffer from mild Enochlophobia
18:50<tronix>I suffer from a severe case of taco withdrawal.
18:57<futhin>Redgore: thats just another word for "afraid of public speaking"
18:57<Redgore>futhin: then my source is wrong
18:57<Redgore>oh well
18:58<futhin>Redgore: no, i lied

19:27<@mikegrb>taupehat: again next year
19:28<taupehat>haha
19:28<taupehat>NO
19:32<taupehat>it really wasn't worth it
19:32<taupehat>lots of hassle, most of the super bargains were sold off to idiots who camped out overnight in the sleet and rain, huge crowds everywhere, and amazingly rude people
19:33<taupehat>So I got a nice Samsumg LCD monitor
19:33<taupehat>and that's abou tit
19:33<taupehat>about it*
19:33<taupehat>oh and some legos for my daughter
19:33<Redgore>lego rocks !
19:33<taupehat>yes
19:33<Redgore>keep it for yourself :P
19:33<taupehat>(until you step on one on your way to the bathroom in the middle of the night)
19:34<taupehat>although
19:35<taupehat>given the choice, I'd rather step on a thumbtack barefoot than step on a goddamn barbie slipper with the heel pointing up
19:35<taupehat>it's not as though I liked having barbies in the house before that moment

22:17<vaxen>god help me
22:17<vaxen>this is 3rd time, my linode kernel panic
22:17<vaxen>caker: I'm doing an emerge -e system
22:19<@mikegrb>lolz
22:19<taupehat>lol
22:19<taupehat>vaxen: perhaps you might want to try a different distro
22:19<taupehat>gentoo isn't exactly
22:19<taupehat>well...
22:20<vaxen>i would like to, but really can't be bothered to learn howto use other distros
22:20<taupehat>I know "worthful" isn't a word
22:20<taupehat>ahh
22:20<taupehat>if you like gentoo
22:20<taupehat>try debian
22:20<taupehat>it's similar enough that you won't have too much to learn
22:20<vaxen>emm..
22:20<taupehat>package management is great
22:20<taupehat>and you don't have to dink around with compiling crap
22:20<vaxen>will the install doc get me going?
22:20<taupehat>yes
22:20<taupehat>and
22:20<taupehat>debian is VERY well-supported
22:20<taupehat>throughout the linux community
22:21<vaxen>is the package management as good as portage?
22:21<taupehat>at least
22:21<taupehat>probably better
22:21<vaxen>things like dependencies etc
22:21<taupehat>I like portage well enough
22:21<taupehat>ahh
22:21<taupehat>yeah
22:21<taupehat>apt is excellent for deps handling\
22:21<taupehat>much better than rpm =]
22:22<vaxen>and there is a central repositries for debian?
22:22<taupehat>zillions
22:22<taupehat>starting off with debian.org =]
22:22[~]taupehat needs to quit doing those damned smileys
22:22<vaxen>and they all carry the same apps?
22:22<taupehat>yes
22:22<taupehat>it's a tree configuration
22:22<taupehat>debian.org posts an app version
22:22<taupehat>and they get rsync'd to the secondaries within 24 hours
22:22<vaxen>okay
22:23<taupehat>and the debian security team is pretty on-the-ball
22:23<taupehat>apt-get update
22:23<taupehat>apt-get upgrade
22:23<taupehat>a minute later, you're done
22:23<taupehat>much MUCH faster than emerge anything
22:23<vaxen>is there loads of howtos to help with configurations?
22:23<taupehat>oodles
22:24|-|alnr [~alan@cpe-69-200-85-107.nyc.res.rr.com] has joined #linode
22:24<taupehat>debian is probably the most commonly-installed distro on linode, and certainly throughout the world
22:24<vaxen>how do you see what apps are available?
22:24<taupehat>heh
22:24<vaxen>i didnt know debian has such a strong crowd
22:24<taupehat>put it this way: if there's a linux app out there, someone has made a .deb package for it
22:24<vaxen>unless you include all those debian-based distros
22:25<taupehat>debian is the premier all-GPL distro
22:25<taupehat>that's not to say you can't add non-free to your sources.list
22:25<taupehat>but for real
22:25<taupehat>debian is big
22:25<taupehat>very very big
22:25<vaxen>okay
22:26<vaxen>i guess i need to change, getting sick of gentoo on linode
22:26<taupehat>heh
22:26[~]taupehat installed gentoo on his iBook 400mhz once
22:26<taupehat>forget that
22:26<linbot>Gotcha, taupehat.
22:26<taupehat>haha!
22:26<taupehat>that was confusing
22:26<vaxen>since i dont need cutting edge on a server
22:26<taupehat>no
22:26<vaxen>might as well start learning debian
22:26<taupehat>you don't even want cutting edge on a server
22:29<vaxen>http://www.debian-administration.org/
22:29<vaxen>this looks like a good place to start
22:29<taupehat>nice
22:29<taupehat>never saw that before
22:29<vaxen>debian runs vanilla kernel ya?
22:30<taupehat>yep
22:30<taupehat>well
22:30<taupehat>there's a debian patch
22:30<taupehat>but it doesn't seem to be neccessary
22:31<taupehat>http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/291
22:31<taupehat>it's really friggin easy
22:31<taupehat>my home server runs 2.6.14
22:32<vaxen>kewl
22:32<taupehat>yep
22:32<cmantito>well this is no good.
22:32<cmantito>I just plugged a DVI->VGA adaptor into my old powermac with a display attached
22:32<cmantito>and the unit just crapped out and shut off.
22:32<vaxen>does xen work on freebsd?
22:32[~]taupehat saw an article in eweek a couple weeks ago about virtualization
22:33<taupehat>you might wanna check
22:33<taupehat>oh also
22:33<taupehat>vaxen: this is my home debian server: http://flickr.com/photos/taupehat/sets/1079266/
22:33<vaxen>ubuntu can use debian's repo but not vice-versa right?
22:33<taupehat>eh
22:33<taupehat>don't do that
22:34<taupehat>you will inevitably bork your system in ways which are unpleasant
22:34<taupehat>and then you'll go to #debian on freenode and they'll flame you to a crisp
22:34<vaxen>hehe
22:34<vaxen>you should put an lcd on the microwave
22:35<taupehat>it's a toaster oven
22:35<taupehat>and actually, I put the power LED in the power LED for the oven

22:36<taupehat>that mobo/cpu combo rocks
22:36<taupehat>55 dollars

22:36<vaxen>i was thinking of building a fileserver, looking on ebay for those old hotswappable racks
22:37<taupehat>heh
22:37[~]taupehat needs to get more drive space
22:37<vaxen>i hate burning dvds

22:40<taupehat>that'll work

23:43<fo0bar>however, that doesn't seem to work well since it's a "snapshot", as opposed to rolling releases as they come out
