Security
HowTos

Say you have a nasty application on your Apache webserver that has been installed by some people from the marketing department and you can neither remove nor patch it. Maybe it is a time problem, a lack of know-how, a lack of source-code, or possibly even political reasons. Consequently you need to protect it without touching it. There is ModSecurity, but they say this is only for experts. A straightforward alternative is Remo, a graphical rule editor for ModSecurity that comes with a whitelist approach.

Filed under
HowTos

Linux DevCenter: Performance optimization in Linux doesn't always mean what we might think. It's not just a matter of outright speed; sometimes it's about tuning the system so that it fits into a small memory footprint. You'd be hard-pressed to find a programmer that does not want to make programs run faster, regardless of the platform. Linux programmers are no exception.

SSH with authentication key instead of password

HowTos

Debian Administration: SSH is a must use tool for system administrators. However, residing access security on a human entered password is not very wise. The good news is that there is a way to leave remote access open and have not to worry about passwords.

Android Leftovers

  • Android Candy: Intercoms
    Ever since my "tiny $20 tablet" project (see my Open-Source Classroom column in the March 2015 issue), I've been looking for more and more cool things to do with cheap Android devices. Although the few obvious ones like XBMC or Plex remotes work well, I've recently found that having Android devices around the house means I can gain back an old-school ability that went out of style in the late 1980s—namely, an intercom system.
  • There's a wild prank hidden in Google Maps that insults Apple in the most childishly inappropriate way
    Rawalpindi is a vibrant Pakistani city known for its bazaars, ancient ruins, and array of religious shrines. But if you pay it a visit on Google Maps, you're going to notice something very unusual on the outskirts of the city — the Android "droid" mascot urinating on the Apple logo.
  • There's an Android bot peeing on an Apple logo on Google Maps

  • An Android robot is peeing on an Apple logo in Google Maps
  • An Android is urinating on the Apple logo in Google Maps (update)
    Google and Apple have always had their differences, but a new Easter egg inside Google Maps has just taken their rivalry to a whole new level. As spotted by Team Android, if you head to these coordinates with the regular Map view enabled, you'll see Google's iconic Android mascot taking a leak on the Apple logo. At the moment, it's unclear who created this little piece of mischief and whether Google is taking action. But if this hidden message is any indication, it was snuck through by a member of the public using Google's Map Maker service, rather than a Google employee. Regardless, it's a crazy (and pretty hilarious) addition that's sure to rile some of the employees in Cupertino. Shots fired!
