05:40<Meena>Hi , My Linode server had been temporarily some network restrictions applied due to brute force attempt. Now i have rebuilded the server, Can i get the restrictions removed
05:40<Woet>how did you get hacked in the first place?
05:41<Meena>i am unable to find the issue. the time mentioned in the support was not mentioned in the auth.log
05:41<Woet>so dont you think finding the issue would be a good idea?
05:41<Meena>i think something is compromised.
05:42<Woet>instead of just rebuilding and waiting for it to happen again
05:42<Meena>Wed Oct 4 16:12:56 2017: user: root service: ssh target: source: Wed Oct 4 16:12:56 2017: user: root service: ssh target: source: Wed Oct 4 16:12:56 2017: user: root service: ssh target: source: Wed Oct 4 16:12:51 2017: user: root service: ssh target: source: Wed Oct 4 16:12:51 2017: user: root service: ssh target: source: W
05:42<Woet>that's not useful.
05:42<Shentino>Per a linux admin guidebook: Reinstallation should be considred MANDATORY on an intruder gaining root access
05:43<Shentino>And if auth.log is not showing anything your syslog may have been compromised
05:43<Meena>in Log there is no log information available in that time.
05:43<Meena>Oct 4 16:09:01 localhost CRON[32118]: pam_unix(cron:session): session closed for user root
05:43<Woet>Meena: yes, those kind of exploits are not really made to log and give you info where it came from.
05:44<Meena>Oct 4 16:15:01 localhost CRON[32185]: pam_unix(cron:session): session opened for user root by (uid=0)
05:44<Woet>Meena: none of this is useful info
05:44<Woet>Meena: please stop pasting everything with the word "root" in it
05:45<Meena>IS there any other additional information which could help me in investigating the issue.
05:45<Shentino>look, if root was compromised then the system log would be one of the first targets
05:46<Shentino>anything you find could be forged or altered
05:46<Woet>Meena: what are you running on your linode?
05:46<Woet>Meena: did you install security updates?
05:46<Woet>Meena: did you use strong unique passwords, or better yet, pubkeys?
05:47<Meena>i am using postgres Databse, Pentaho ETL tools running.
05:47<Meena>did u mean strong password for root?
05:48<Woet>for everything.
05:48<Woet>strong, unique, random passwords.
05:49<Meena>its a unique password only
05:50<weblizar>any help ?
05:52<Meena>i didnt install any security updates.
05:54<Meena>Per a linux admin guidebook: Reinstallation should be considred MANDATORY on an intruder gaining root access . reinstallation of Putty u meant to say shentino
05:55<Shentino>troll alert
05:58<Meena>unable to fetch my syslog as i have rebuilded my server.
05:59<Meena>And one more priority is, i have my project deliverables tomorrow, so if you could please help me with this restriction issue, it would be great help
06:03<Meena>this issue is mainly due to passwords?
06:04<Zimsky>do your project deliverables not include "ensuring systems are not compromised"?
06:04<Zimsky>crikey mikey.
06:32<kyhwana>Zimsky: maybe they work at equifax?

06:37<Meena>How to ensure systems are not compromised . I dont have syslog files right now as my linode had been rebuilt
06:37<poky>Ever used rkhunter?
06:38<poky>rkhunter, clamscan, maldet
06:38<Woet>Meena: for starters, you should use random, unique, strong passwords
06:38<Woet>for every account
06:38<Woet>then use public key auth for SSH
06:39<Woet>install security updates and keep it up to date
06:39<ponas>^- also applies to any internet-facing webapps
06:39<poky>Meena: For the guide what Woet suggested -
06:40<poky>rkhunter to find RootKits, clamscan (malware, virus scanner, i guess), maldet (malware detector)
06:42<poky>OK guys. I am here to achieve something. FTP related
06:43<Woet>why are you still using FTP
06:43<poky>My ssh config has restrcited to PermitRootLogin no
06:43<poky>what shall I use?
06:43<Woet>i mean, did you mean SFTP?
06:43<Woet>its not the same
06:44<poky>Yeah SFTP* correction
06:46<poky>Using filezilla on my PC via SFTP. So, as SSH restricts to login user 'root' I cannot login to SFTP with that user. The other sudo user is 'poky'. But when I login to sftp with that user, I cannot create files/folders but can read.
06:46<poky>How can I create files and folders with the user 'poky'
06:47<grawity>I'd say use chmod/chown to give permissions for that
06:47<poky>chown is set to www:data
06:47<poky>shall I keep user 'poky' under www:data?
06:48<grawity>um, as in user "www" group "data"?
06:49<poky>www-data:www-data (user:group)
06:50<poky>All files are set in that owner/group. There is no user called www-data
06:51<grawity>how can a nonexistent user be the owner, though
06:51<grawity>i'm sure it exists
06:51<grawity>but the user doesn't matter that much; the group is more useful
06:51<grawity>I don't know if adding "poky" to the "www-data" group is best practice, but ... it's one way to do it
06:52<poky>Hmm. Explain Why not the best practice?
06:52<poky>Any security issues?
07:00<poky>So I added 'poky' to www-data group. Still I can't create a file in a folder which is owned by www-data:www-data (user:group)
07:01<Meena>Do we have to access the Linode server only with static IP address ?
07:01<grawity>Meena: as opposed to?
07:01<grawity>poky: use chmod to make the folder group-writable
07:01<grawity>poky: i.e. g+w, and probably g+s to make all new stuff in it also www-data-owned
07:04<Meena>dynamic IP address from the routers are trying to make connections with Linode server. So is it necessary to have static IP connection was my doubt
07:08<grawity>Meena: ah – if you're talking about the source (client) address, that's completely unimportant
07:10-!-poky [~oftc-webi@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]

07:18<abhi131>I read
07:18<Nino>Do you have CentOS 7.3 distro?
07:18<Woet>abhi131: "While any customer can use PayPal to fund their account, new customers will still need to sign up using a credit card. You can use PayPal from then on."

15:25<Ikaros>I'm getting yelled at by the people that were using the stuff on it
15:25<dwfreed>Frogging101: it is worth noting that these days when a host dies, the Linode's status is set to Powered Off in the Manager
15:26<Frogging101>yeah. that's what I assumed had happened
15:26<@jackley>I don't see any host issues in Newark atm.
15:26<dwfreed>you pinged out, which would be consistent with host death
15:26<@jackley>Frogging101: do you have a host name for me?
15:26*jackley looks
15:26<Ikaros>jackley: Mine as well has also powered off.
15:27<Frogging101>yeah what dwfreed said is its IP/network hostname

15:27<dwfreed>those are far enough apart in numbers I can guarantee you they're not in the same cabinet
15:28<Ikaros>That can't be a coincidence that you had a slew of Newark nodes power off at right about the same time in different cabinets

15:34<Ikaros>Yeah, you're not the only one.
15:34<dwfreed>Linode is looking into it
15:34<Acejam>Roger, thank you
15:34<dwfreed>it's likely a partial power outage
15:34<Acejam> needs updating :)
15:34<Ikaros>They'll do so eventually once they can ascertain the extent
15:34<@jackley>it's not a power issue.
15:35<Acejam>This is the first time since 2009 that I've had a Linode unintentionally power off
15:36<dwfreed>jackley: fun
15:37<Ikaros>Acejam: Regularly occured to mine before I finally got off the host node it was on previously.
15:37<Ikaros>After that it stopped doing it.
15:37<Acejam>Noisy neighbors / bad node :/
15:38<Ikaros>Unfortunately, both are regular occurences in the hosting business.
15:38<Acejam>At least I can confirm that my monitors work :)
15:38<Ikaros>How you respond to it is what makes or breaks the deal.
15:39<@jackley>this is related to the block storage beta. If your Linode can't boot, and you've got an attached volume, can you detatch the volume and attempt to boot?
15:39<millisa>the one i have that is down is one that i have one of the beta block store store volumes on.
15:39<Ikaros>jackley yeah one moment let me see.
15:40<HoopyCat>datapoint: all three of my newark linodes are alive and well, and i am not participating in the block storage beta
15:40<Ikaros>Boot successful.
15:41<dwfreed>Good thing it's a beta :)
15:41<Ikaros>Though taking longer 'cause I assume systemd is hanging on the mount filesystems task since the block storage is no longer attached.
15:41<@jackley>Frogging101 && millisa -- can you give that a try as well?
15:41<@jmetz>jackley: it worked for my newark linode
15:41<wheatie>I will try this also
15:41<Ikaros>Aaaand into emergency mode.
15:42<wheatie>.... k maybe i'll wait for support direction =)
15:42<Frogging101>right, that worked jackley
15:42<Ikaros>How nice.

15:44<dwfreed>wheatie: Ikaros's failed because of systemd silliness, not a Linode problem
15:44<Ikaros>jackley: No, normal boot, failed because the mount filesystem task fails and it drops into maintenance mode as a result, so I have to go into Finnix to correct that since I don't have my root pw handy at the moment.
15:44<Ikaros>But other than that it DOES boot

18:19<mmlj4>I've been unable to send email to various large providers recently... I get bounces that say my AS is on a blocklist (my IP is
18:19<mmlj4>I don't spam, this is incidental mail, and anyhow I'm not a /19
18:20<millisa>mxtoolbox doesn't show that IP blacklisted anywhere.
18:20<Ikaros>I don't think you're on any blacklist that I know of, I just ran the IP.
18:20<Ikaros>So whatever servers are rejecting you, it's likely their own blocklists you're hitting.
18:20<HoopyCat>any providers that aren't microsoft?
18:21<mmlj4>,, are the ones that come to mind
18:21<Ikaros>Yeah, Microsoft has a rep for that.
18:22<@scrane>Yeah, what you can do is open a ticket and provide the full error responses from Microsoft. We can then ask microsoft to remove the IP from the blacklist.
18:22<@scrane>Just let us know what domain you're sending from, and make sure you have your SPF records and RDNS set up properly.
18:22<mmlj4>well, if the error is telling the truth, large sections of linode are blocked by evilcorp
18:23<Ikaros>That's not unusual for Microsoft.
18:23<@scrane>Wouldn't surprise me.
18:23<Ikaros>I actually had to get aggressive with them when they pulled a CIDR block on an IP space I controlled on a dedi I had before.
18:23<@scrane>Assuming RDNS and SPF are set right, Microsoft usually honors the blacklist removal requests from us
18:24<mmlj4>hmm... I ought to check all my domains, probably SPF isn't set up for my clients' domains
18:24<Ikaros>But yeah
18:24<Ikaros>Check your RDNS, SPF setup
18:24<HoopyCat>microsoft begrudgingly accepts mail from the rest of the internet. they'd rather you just use them for all your mail needs :p
18:25<Ikaros>Then file a ticket with the domain you use for outgoing email, they can reach out on your behalf so long as you have your end set up correctly.
18:25<dwfreed>how do you scare a microsoft lawyer? whisper "anti-competitive"
18:25<Ikaros>(they would want to hear from the organization directly responsible for the IP space, instead of just the user who's using it)
18:26<mmlj4>I wonder... my postfix box does have a PTR record set... if they complain about mail for other domains being relayed through it... grr...
18:26<@scrane>Usually that isn't a big problem.
18:26<@scrane>At least not in my experience.
18:27<dwfreed>as long as the rDNS is sane, and the domain you're relaying mail for has an SPF record that says you're allowed, your rDNS not matching the domain you're relaying is not an issue
18:27<mmlj4>so open a Linode ticket, once I've done my homework?
18:27<Ikaros>Though yeah I can see your rDNS does seem to be correct, assuming that you send with that same domain name, and it also appears you have SPF set up too.
18:27<@scrane>Yup, pretty much. And make sure you share the full error code with us
18:27<mmlj4>I send for a few other domains too
18:27<dwfreed>make sure those domains have SPF records that say you can send their mail
18:28<@scrane>I think the blacklist is based on the IP address, so you should only need to do it for one domain per IP address, I think.
18:30<mmlj4>OK, the domains that can't send have SPF on them already
18:30<@scrane>Cool. You should be good.
18:30<rsdehart>email is objectively the worst
18:30<mmlj4>I'll file a ticket later tonight, thanks
18:31<millisa>what's the smtp error code/message that the live/hotmail/outlook/ms domains are giving? their codes usually give a hint at what is triggering them
18:31<Ikaros>So long as your IP has rDNS set, it should be fine as well. Ideally it should be set to the same domain, but most mail servers are "ok" with it if it's set up period.
18:31<mmlj4>I'll have to see if I can find it

18:36<dwfreed>no idea where they got that AS number, because it's for "The Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Tech"

18:37<mmlj4>hmm? I checked one the other day that did say Linode
18:38<mmlj4>or maybe I was looking at something else? /me forgets
18:38<@scrane>Hrm, not sure. But yeah, include that full error in a ticket and we should be able to take care of that.
18:38<millisa>interestingly, someone else saw the same as3140:

18:51<Help_me>I ran a search on an IP address that i found. I was wondering if Linode would be able to tell me a little more about it
18:51<millisa>maybe, maybe not.
18:52<millisa>what is your real question/
18:52<Help_me>Well is Linode an ISP? Or just a hosting service?
18:52<millisa>Linode provides VPS; that's arguably both
18:53<Help_me>So it would be possible that the IP address I found is a VPN being hosted on Linode servers?
18:53<millisa>sure; that's something people could and do use linode for
18:53-!-cooldude [] has quit [Read error: No route to host]
18:54<Help_me>Ok. Would anyone be able to tell me who runs VPNs from the IP address?
18:54-!-mode/#linode [+l 348] by ChanServ
18:54<millisa>at least pretty unlikely
18:54<millisa>the official linode folks wouldn't.

18:54<Help_me>Anyone on here willing to help?

18:57<@bmartin>Can you give us some more info on the situation. It is difficult to give you any pointers without any details?

18:58*millisa types much more innacruately, too
18:58<dwfreed>bmartin: you mixed up your punctuation
18:58<millisa>hah. and that wasn't intentional :)
18:58<Help_me>I'm pretty sure the person I'm catfishing is also catfishing me so I emailed the woman and gave her a link that logs her IP address
18:58<Help_me>And when I searched it showed to be coming from Linode servers
18:59<Help_me>So idk if it's like a proxy or vpn that she's using
18:59<millisa>Well, I'll give you the unique issue of the day
18:59<dwfreed>yeah, I agree
18:59<dwfreed>definitely not abuse
18:59<millisa>Is the woman's name 'Eugenia'?

19:02<millisa>Well, I suppose I might put it this way - setting up a linode to do things isn't exactly hard . .but to go through the effort of getting a vpn setup on one just for the purposes of screwing with someone... is a little more advanced than the usual
19:02<millisa>The chances that beverley doesn't have a beard to rival someone on Duck Dynasty is slim?
19:02<dwfreed>Or it's just a security conscious person

19:03<mmlj4>i know what she needs... a consultant!

19:03<millisa>they do exist.

19:05<Toba_>you should ask.
19:05<Help_me>I'll consider it

19:07<Toba_>I think they have one for "defrauding hard working americans stateside via wire fraud."
19:07<Help_me>I'll ask shes telling me about her job right now
19:07<millisa>no no. she'd know her mos.
19:07<Toba_>this reminds me of back when I would be logged into skype all the time
19:08<Toba_>one time, this girl claiming to be a taiwanese teenager wanted to talk english with me and for a while she would call me and play the piano

19:14<mmlj4>I work at QTS in Atlanta
19:15<Ikaros>OR dumb spammers...
19:15<mmlj4>do you guys have your own datacenter, or do you rent space in a DC?
19:15<mmlj4>I don't expect an anwer, but I can always dream...
19:15<millisa>no, that wasn't it.

19:16<Peng>Don't go there, you'll never escape
19:16<Peng>and you'll get superpowers that makes every ATS you walk by short out
19:16<Help_me>I think Beverley is part of the Taliban
19:16<Help_me>She said I own her
19:16<@bmartin>We have removed the prison cells from Atlanta
19:16<Help_me>And she's in Iraq
19:17<Help_me>And she's in the "Army" (Taliban)
19:17<mmlj4>prison cells? I've missed a reference somewhere...
19:17<@bmartin>They said you'd never escape
19:17<@bmartin>it was a bad joke :(
19:17<Peng>Help_me: Taliban aren't active in Iraq, are they?
19:18<dwfreed>would be ISIS
19:18<mmlj4>when I hired on here, the first thing I asked about was if you guys were in our building... I'd have found your cage and taken a selfie...
19:18<@scrane>It's the sequel to Escape from New York: Escape from Atlanta
19:18<Help_me>Ok, so Taliban is in Afghanistan.
19:18<Help_me>She's in ISIS then
