Arkeia Network Backup Agent Remote Access

Chris Croome Re:Hum off topic'ish. (168 comments)

If target is compromised, a malicious user can run arbitrary commands through rsync.

I agree this is an issue, the best solution I have found is Push Mirroring with this the command that can be run is put in the ssh public key and then the compromised client can only run this specific command.

RedHat and Fedora

Chris Croome Chris Croome writes  |  more than 11 years ago

RedHat is opening up the development process via Fedora and this is a great thing.

The exchange value of a Fedora CD set is basically the cost of producing and shipping them, there is some money to be made there but not much.

I think this is why RedHat are concentrating on selling services to businesses.

However Redhat could do what Mozilla does, sell cheap Mozilla CDs or what OpenOffice.org does, link to people selling OpenOffice.org CDs. After all RedHat still sells hats, stickets t-shirts and posters!

Overall, what RedHat are doing makes sense to me and I have found some of the stuff being posted on here to be quite depressing -- what RedHat are doing is fantastic, they are opening up development to the community and this is already leading to lots of exciting stuff happening -- the likes of slashdot should be celebrating this we should be for the opening up of all free software projects.


Testing the new journal system...

Chris Croome Chris Croome writes  |  more than 13 years ago

This is just to test the new journal feature of slash2.2, I've tried it in slash2 on another site but the discussion feature is not yet in the open code and I want to test it...

I also want to see if this generated a RSS feed somewhere...
