Ubiquity EdgeMax (ASG)

From: Mark Quering 
------------------------------------------------------
Hey all


I recently sold one of these units to a customer basically to give it a
try. Needless to say at the $100 price point I was pretty happy with the
device.

The unit has a pretty solid build quality. The web management interface is
a little rough out of the box. A firmware update helped quite a bit. I
haven't played in the CLI yet but I hear that EdgeOS is a fork of Vayatta.

The web interface worked well for a basic SOHO NAT setup with a few inbound
firewall rules. Been very stable for the two months it's been in a
production environment. I also did not get to fully test LAN to WAN
throughput of their network processor due to time constraints.

The only odd thing I noticed with the unit I deployed was that it generated
a fair bit of heat. More than I would expect. I also did not need to
contact support so I cannot speak to that aspect of the product. I would
say for the price it's definitely worth purchasing to play with.

Due to my experience with this product and good things I've heard here and
on other forums, I am seriously considering also offering their managed PoE
switches and AP's to my SMB offerings.

Good video card for photo editing

From: John Aldrich 
------------------------------------------------------
I think I need a good video card for photo editing. I've got a Dell
Optiplex with Win 7 Pro and it keeps having issues in Lightroom when I'm
doing heavy photo editing. I suspect it's that the on-board graphics are
sharing with the system memory. I watched last night as the CPU
utilization peaked at over 100% for several minutes straight.

The motherboard has one PCIE x16 slot. Of course, it has to be a
low-rise card, due to the case. Does anyone have a suggestion for
something that would do well for photo editing? I would think that a
good gaming graphics card would work, but I don't know. Not looking to
spend a small fortune. :)

Lacie external drive crashed

From: Nate Hill 
------------------------------------------------------
Hey all,

Something terrible has happened... I have one of those Lacie rugged 1TB
external hard drives that I've basically used as my photograph junk drawer
for the last few years.  **Everything** is on there.

And it just crashed, it won't mount, and disk utility cannot do anything
with it.

Don't judge me for how stupid I was to put my faith in this one device.

I need to do some data recovery work here, and while I'd normally start
tinkering, the stakes are high and I don't want to make things worse.

Any thoughts, other than "way to go, idiot", are greatly appreciated.

Nate

Linux on Windows 8 laptops

From: James Nylen 
------------------------------------------------------
I'm considering buying a laptop soon, maybe an ASUS X550LNV-NB51 [1].  It
runs Windows 8.1 by default, which I will probably not even boot into more
than once.

Are there bootloader issues that would prevent me from installing Linux on
a modern laptop like this?  If so, any recommendations for a laptop brand
or model that is Linux-friendly?

Anyone heard of this botnet expoit for linux?

From: Rod-Lists 
------------------------------------------------------
"Akamai Technologies is alerting enterprises to a high-risk threat of IptabLes and IptabLex infections on Linux systems. Malicious actors may use infected Linux systems to launch DDoS attacks against the entertainment industry and other verticals.

The mass infestation of IptabLes and IptabLex seems to have been driven by a large number of Linux-based web servers being compromised, mainly by exploits of Apache Struts, Tomcat and Elasticsearch vulnerabilities. 

Attackers have used the Linux vulnerabilities on unmaintained servers to gain access, escalate privileges to allow remote control of the machine, and then drop malicious code into the system and run it. As a result, a system could then be controlled remotely as part of a DDoS botnet.

A post-infection indication is a payload named .IptabLes or. IptabLex located in the /boot directory. These script files run the .IptabLes binary on reboot."

Spam Filtering, Take 2

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
Good morning! After an abbreviated (which was planned) honeymoon because my
wife is a teacher, we're back to work as of yesterday and I'm catching up
on things.

I hope Chugalug survived without me being on the grid for a few days. :)

I'm still being sent lots of spam, and as of yesterday, have started
reporting every item to Spamcop - because almost all of these emails are
very similar in nature to each other in the formatting of the email and in
the subject line (although they have different topics like Auto Insurance,
Medical Insurance, Background searches, Ford dealerships, etc...).

Ever since I started tracking these emails as of yesterday and have been
reporting them to Spamcop, *every* single email is coming from the Black
Lotus network (and the complaints are being sent, via Spamcop, to
abuse@blacklotus.net).

I did some research on them, and they do seem to be a legit company
headquartered in San Francisco. Anyone have any thoughts on how big they
are? Based on what I read, I don't think it would be a good idea to
outright block their entire network, as they provide DDoS mitigation and
have a pretty big network and serve some pretty big clients.

Email bounce back Help

From: DJ Smith 
------------------------------------------------------
Well everyone, here's my 1st plead for assistance. 

We are running our own email server w/ Iredmail on a Debian box. Everything has been going good up till this 1 bounce back from a client. 

The only error they have sent me is this:
IOException during delivery. class: java.net.UnknownHostException

I have been through all our logs & I can not even see where their server even made or attempted a connection w/ ours. This leads me to believe that there's a middle man that is causing the problem. But it could be our server & I'm just simply overlooking something. 

So, I was hoping that 1 of you may have come across this error somewhere before.

Spam filtering w/ Postfix + Amavisd-new

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
Anyone have experience with this setup?

My clients and I have noticed a big uptick in spam coming through the
system I manage recently.

I knew I had to deal with a few bugs related to clamd and freshclam and
file permissions. Once I dealt with those issues, getting rid of errors in
the maillog related to scanning for viruses, I've cleaned up some amavisd
configuration files and have tweaked amavisd.conf.

I noticed yesterday that the spamd process wasn't even running (although I
didn't see anything in the logs about it not being available), so I've
started that process and am planning on adding that to my list of services
that Nagios needs to monitor.

A lot of spam is still coming through the system, and I was wondering what
methods you guys use to combat spam.

Right off the bat, before Postfix sends the mail to amavisd for scanning,
I've been rejecting mail sent from known bad IP addresses using Spamhouse,
Spamcop and Barracuda's blacklists:

Any used these Powershell solutions to manage a nix box?

From: Rod-Lists 
------------------------------------------------------
Good Morning sports fans,

Once in while we nix users get this issue, you have a nix box you need to connect to but the other company has a winders centric vpn.
So you have to use a winders box.
I know about putty and cygwin. But I was wondering if anyone had tried these commandlets or modules in Powershell to manage a nix box?

Hardware donations for library

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA512

I'm working on a project to get some Linux machines set up for the
Rossville Public Library with some programming tools and possibly open
source media editing. I was wondering if anyone on the list might have
some hardware they would be interested in donating or if anyone knows
of a project that helps to get hardware with open source software into
places like libraries. Also, I'm considering a crowdfunding campaign,
what would you recommend for something like that? I appreciate any
suggestions or contributions, thanks.

Sincerely,
Robert A. Kelly III
