00:31<kyhwana>Vulnerability Details : CVE-2016-10229
00:31<kyhwana>udp.c in the Linux kernel before 4.5 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via UDP traffic that triggers an unsafe second checksum calculation during execution of a recv system call with the MSG_PEEK flag.
00:32<FluffyFoxeh>that sounds bad
00:34<kyhwana>Just came up today
00:36<FluffyFoxeh>does that mean I have to update my phone
00:36<FluffyFoxeh>I really don't want android 7
00:36<FluffyFoxeh>I like working email
00:36<dwfreed>I have working email, and I'm on 7.1.2
00:37<FluffyFoxeh>I've heard things about K-9 Mail on Android 7 not syncing/push mail being broken
00:37<dwfreed>I mean, just disable Doze for it
00:37<dwfreed>should work fine
00:37<FluffyFoxeh>that doesn't work according to some people on the bug report
00:38<Peng>(CVE-2016-10229 is about 1/3 of the way down the page.)

03:15<raj>why is ubuntu 16 setting `python` to python2?
03:15<raj>at this point it should relaly be 3
03:15<Peng>I've always disagreed with that. Why break Python 2 programs by renaming stuff?
03:16<raj>does it really break things if you can set the alias to whatever you want?
03:16<raj>I'm just saying for the default
03:21<JamesTK>Can't you change the default with alternatives?

03:29<nate>Technically yes. With support? no :P
03:29<nate>Look at the linode guides
03:29<nate>there's a couple that give a rough example on how to do it I believe
03:31<linbot>It is possible to run Windows on !kvm Linodes. Here's a set of unofficial instructions:

03:46<Ajay>How to install gandi's Standard SSL Certificate on my linux server...using nginx
03:47<Peng> should have a few tutorials
03:48<Peng> looks probably accurate
03:48<Peng>Though i'd follow for the general SSL configuration, beyond the certificate and private key.
03:50<dcraig>how to install peng on my desktop?
03:50<Peng>Step 1: Chloroform
03:51<Peng>Nope, too dark. Cancel the Peng show and put on something else.
03:51<dcraig>the peng show is the only reason I subscribe to this thing
03:59<FluffyFoxeh>what about the gong show

09:42<seb__>I'm interested in knowing whether linode VPS support the use of stunnel?
09:42-!-mode/#linode [+l 367] by ChanServ
09:43<dzho>seb__: if you know how to use stunnel, you can run it on a linode VPS
09:43<seb__>What do you mean exactly?
09:43<dzho>and by "use" I mean: install, configure, and maintain.
09:44<seb__>Well, I'm not an expert
09:44<dzho>and by install I mean, install it and all dependencies, including the underlying operating system.
09:44<seb__>I'm using the manual
09:45<seb__>Anyway, it's supported right... that's my question
09:45<dzho>I like to think there is a range of abilities between "competent" and "expert" that keep open the possibility of avoiding immediate suffering.
09:45<dzho>seb__: you get a virtual machine meant to run Linux on.
09:45<dzho>there are some provisions for helping you install Linux, but after that, it's all reading manuals or knowing what you are doing.
09:46<seb__>I mean
09:46<seb__>I'm not reading Linode manuals
09:46<seb__>Just manuals for stunnel
09:46<dzho>seb__: have you ever administered, or even used, a Linux system before?
09:47<Woet>seb__: anything that runs on Linux runs on Linode.
09:47<seb__>Yes. And why the fuck do you care? There are some virtual machines that don't support stunnel
09:47<dzho>Woet: let's play a game of Tux Racer!
09:47<dzho>seb__: ok, nevermind.
09:48<seb__>That's all I'm asking
09:48<Woet>seb__: only fake ones that use openVZ.
09:48<seb__>Is it possible to use stunnel
09:48<Woet>seb__: and linode doesn't use openVZ.
09:49<@nbrewer>It is possible to use stunnel on a Linode.
09:49<@nbrewer>let's leave it at that.
09:49<seb__>Thanks. Fantastic. That's all I want to know.
09:49<Woet>why? we're only getting started
09:49-!-seb__ [~oftc-webi@] has quit [Quit: Page closed]
09:50<Celti>I'm so glad I never got into playing with virtual machines until OpenVZ was something everybody knew was a horrible atrocity.
09:50<dzho>nbrewer: I like that. The use of "possible" rather than "supported".

11:48<alexf>does anyone else have this issue with Atom: I set my perference to LF line endings. I open a document that has CRLF ending in it, so it uses those. I can convert the entire file to LF, but that replaces all contents as a git diff sees it. Is there any way to force Atom to use LF no matter what's already present in a file, and not also convert all existing line endings?

12:58<DrJ>croz, you can set a PTR on your IP
12:58<DrJ>but it must resolve to your linode IP
12:58<DrJ>linode itself provides no vhosts
12:59<croz>can u link me to ptr unfamiliar with that
12:59<DrJ>I'm bouncing through a linode with a vhost I set up

12:59<DrJ>PTR is what an IP will resolve to
12:59<DrJ>in my case, I set it to
13:00<Woet>[19:00:16] Woet has userhost and real name “Wouter van Eekelen”
13:00<Woet>thats my vhost
13:01<DrJ>so basically croz you either buy a domain for your vhost... or you do like I did and use a free subdomain service
13:01<DrJ> <--place that has tons to pick from
13:02<Woet>vhosts dont even work without being a FQDN
13:02<Woet>on IRC that is
13:02<Woet>so even if linode didnt enforce it, you still need to

15:20-!-steveski [~steveg@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
15:20<alexf>tanja84dk: there no one procedure. One possibility is: 1) build new Linode and install software. 2) copy all certificates and config files. 3) test the holy bejesus out of it. 4) Swap IPs
15:20<tanja84dk>alexf: sadly we need to install 64bit software like docker-ce and that is not available to i386 ( I noticed )
15:20-!-mode/#linode [+l 377] by ChanServ
15:21<alexf>oh and 5) pick a deity and pray. Earlier this morning I was really pushing Jesus, but at the moment I'm digging some Vishnu
15:21<dwfreed>alexf: I mean, there technically is, with the way Debian is set up, but it's god awful, not for the faint of heart, and I'd probably barely manage to get it to work
15:22<alexf>dwfreed: yes, I thought we had already covered the idea that you "could" in-place upgrade, but it's generally considered a bad and terrible idea full of wrong and "oh dear vishnu why?"
15:22<tanja84dk>will look into it then, and how easy is it to get the ols certificate moved over, including being able to generate new certificates etc if needed?
15:24<alexf>tanja84dk: easy is a relative term. Base on the way you phrase these questions, I'm making assumptions about your experience in these matters and saying "not very". But the reality is that if you install the exact same version of the software (other than bitness) and then copy the exact config files you modified to the exact same place on the new filesystem, it should* just pick up where the old one left off.
15:25<alexf>*Terms and Conditions apply not valid in Alaska or Hawaii see dwfreed for details.
15:26<alexf>someone should add that to Linbot as !terms
15:27<tanja84dk>Well yes I have never tried to move configurations where ssl is involved before so yeah I'm pretty new and a little afraid on that part. because I have never understanded how lets say cert signing and revoking actually works in practice
15:28<tanja84dk>so I have no idea of what when and why there is nedded to be the same
15:29<alexf>tanja84dk: for what we're describing doing, cert signing/revoking doesn't enter into play. Once the certs are created, they are valid so long as the host names lines up and DNS agrees.
15:30<alexf>Example: I hosted my blog on a Linode. When I migrated it to another platform, I just copied the SSL certificate and key, and imported it to the new platform. Once DNS started pointing my domain to the new host, everyghing was hunky dory
15:30<tanja84dk>alexf: well its not nginx/apache certs but openvpn so the key/cert is the auth
15:30<tanja84dk>and you should be able to revoke those

15:31<tanja84dk>and that is the way I have no idea of what when and why there is used there
15:31<alexf>^ does not make sense, when expecting English.
15:33<tanja84dk>So I'm not sure what is needed there to move back after the reinstall. Yeah I'm sorry my english is specially not the best today I'm danish ( english is second language ) and have a flue/cold so my head is not in the rigt place at this moment
15:34<alexf>It sounds like you're thinking that you might need to revoke/reissue certificates if you do this move, and/or the way you revoke/reissue/create certs might change once you're on the new server.
15:34<alexf>AFAIK, both of these assumptions are false*.
15:34<tanja84dk>alexf: Its more if there is files normally outside the openvpn directory there is needed for the sign and revoke process. Just to make sure where I have to make sure that I recover tyhe files after
15:34<alexf>That should be part of the "config" you copy over.

15:39<MajObviousman>for the record, the imposition of "moving data over" is hopefully resolved and/or tidied up in your backup strategy, and the imposition of building a replacement system is hopefully resolved and/or tidied up with change management tooling of some kind
15:40<alexf>MajObviousman: I highly doubt that those sort of solutions are in place here.
15:40<MajObviousman>so moving from distro to same distro SHOULD in theory be inconsequential
15:41<MajObviousman>as do I. Hence why it is stated merely for the record
15:41<MajObviousman>more for those reading scrollback than anything
15:41<alexf>tanja84dk: do not forget steps 3 and 5 that I laid out above, they are critical to this sort of thing.
15:42<alexf>MajObviousman: SHOULD*, but that also assumes that the source server has had consistennt package updates.
15:43<tanja84dk>MajObviousman: I'm also going to test in another virtual machine first if it will work but taking a disk image of the server first because then I have a complete backup image of the server
15:44<tanja84dk>and we do have backups but they are almost only partials because they are taken live so in theory files/data could change under a backup
15:45<MajObviousman>tanja84dk: you might find these presentations useful re: how certificates work.
15:53<tanja84dk>I will look into that thanks MajObviousman

15:56<dwfreed>what command are you running?
15:56<tanja84dk>I used this guide
15:56<dwfreed>and what command are you running?
15:56<tanja84dk>so ssh root@serverip "dd if=/dev/sda " | dd of=/home/archive/linode.img
15:57<tanja84dk>and the disk is sda
15:58<linbot>New news from forum: General Discussion • soin massage lyon <>
15:59<tanja84dk>I think I have found the issue 2 sec
16:01<tanja84dk>the command worked I just had a typo error in the dd of path and actually didnt notice dd reporting "dd: failed to open " because it wrote it before it asked for the ssh password
16:08<linbot>New news from forum: Feature Request/Bug Report • Push Notifications on Mobile App <>
16:14<MajObviousman>so, future tip: any time you start a command with dd, you need to stop, stand up, walk around for 15 seconds to clear your head, then come back and look at your dd invocation very carefully before you hit enter
16:14<MajObviousman>that command has destroyed careers

17:22<relidy>I ... I don't think so, but that doesn't exactly stop someone from spoofing it :)
17:23*relidy begins furiously searching chat logs.
17:24<BDIkaros>That's kind of what sucks with chat very, very easily falsified
17:24<BDIkaros>Pretty much why in general I don't accept them as evidence of anything on my network.
17:25<BDIkaros>Screenshots are a little more believable but I'd have to look out for Photoshopping tricks.
17:26<relidy>I work with a bunch of graphic artists. When they really try to obscure a change, it's really difficult to tell anything was done.
17:28<Peng>Fortunately it is extremely difficult to Photoshop black and white, fixed with, non-antialised text.
17:30<BDIkaros>Which is why I say this - if you have nothing but text logs that you're trying to present to me for, say, user harrassment (which is against the network rules on my end), you're getting turned down because of the fact text is very, very easily falsified. If on the other hand you present a screenshot of your client proving it's your client and that the said harrassment occurred when you said it did, then I'll do something.
17:30<BDIkaros>I'm not going to slam the hammer down on an innocent user
17:31<BDIkaros>'cause then I'd have to rectify that, then come back and throw the other guy off for making a false report, and it's a hassle. :(
17:31<arlen>throw 'em in the slammer!

17:42<BDIkaros>And it sucks in the text logs issue 'cause I find out it's falsified, I feel like complete shit that I got tricked and then have to turn around and permanently ban the other guy for pulling that in the first place.
17:42<BDIkaros>I don't mess around in that case.
17:42<BDIkaros>'cause I feel like crap for falling for that and you know for damn sure someone's gonna feel the result of that.

17:44<BDIkaros>MajObviousman: Not really, it's more like uh...hmm...
17:44<BDIkaros>How do I put this...
17:44<millisa> /shame = dings a bell after every carriage return and has 'Shame!' come out the speakers?
17:45<BDIkaros>MajObviousman - it's essentially a server-side ignore set on a client that blocks it from using most commands (usually every command including PRIVMSG, but excluding PING/PONG and sometimes JOIN/QUIT/PART depending on the implementation)
17:46<MajObviousman>sounds like a shadow ban
17:47<BDIkaros>And some implementations allow you to suppress telling the client they're shunned, or just tell them anyway when they try to use a command that the shun prohibits
17:47<MajObviousman>messages come back to the shunned client, but PRIVMSG et all going out are silently dropped. Since IRC protocol doesn't have an ack, client can't detect the difference
17:48<BDIkaros>I mean the client can still connect/disconnect and do connection registration, and in some cases still join/part channels, so in essence it's not a true ban.
17:49<BDIkaros>As the connection itself is still being permitted in most cases.

20:44<defaultName>I really should copy paste instead of retyping from w3 schools
20:44<defaultName>but yes thank you
20:44<defaultName>Another question about sanitizing
20:44<defaultName>It strips the HTML tags from the string
20:45<defaultName>allowing proper inputs into the data base correct?
20:45<millisa>you can get it to leave some types of characters in . . or at least encode them.
20:45<defaultName>I am wondering if you need to sanitize data that is already coming in as a string such as "hello", because after santitization it is still "hello"
20:46<millisa>you want to sanitize anything that might be entered by a user or client.
20:46<millisa>whether they get to type in the input or not.
20:46<millisa>there are scripted bots that just look for any forms they can find on a page, and they'll try submitting to any of those variables things that could cause an injection
20:47<defaultName>Also security-wise I saw a suggestion of using $data = htmlspecialchars($data); to prevent changing of the values
20:47<defaultName>So by sanitizing it will remove the script and will not pass it through
20:49<defaultName>And speaking of using htmlspecialchars; when using it within the action selection of a form
