Chkrootkit finds /lib/init/rw/.ramfs on debian etch

If you have chkrootkit installed on debian etch, you might be getting these messages:

/etc/cron.daily/chkrootkit:
The following suspicious files and directories were found:
/lib/init/rw/.ramfs

This is a bug in initscripts, which puts a hidden file in /lib/init/rw but shouldn’t. Until it is fixed, you can patch chkrootkit to get rid of that message.

Update: Apparently, chkrootkit also stumbles on /lib/init/rw/.mdadm. Adapt the patch as needed.

Comment utiliser les scripts QoS de nbd sur OpenWRT avec le multiposte RTSP de la freebox

Ceci est ici comme référence pour google.

Il existe des scripts de QoS bien utiles pour OpenWRT. Malheureusement, le multiposte de la freebox est complètement kaput quand ils sont activés. La solution bio, douce et délicate à ce problème est de rajouter une commande à /etc/init.d/S50qos pour que ça ressemble à ça:

#!/bin/sh
/usr/lib/qos.sh firewall | sh
 
#Don't QoS traffic coming from the freebox
iptables -t mangle -I PREROUTING 1 -s 212.27.38.253 -j ACCEPT

The cat is out of the bag

You might have heard about the IDN spoof thing that has been going around. In short, because of a big company called verisign messing up, you can register domain names that look like other domain names. So to make fun of them, I registered Veriѕign.com and put up a parody of the website of NeuStar, one of Verisign’s competitors. All this was supposed to stay under wraps until Monday, to give Verisign time to react. Now Joi, ICANN’s gossip queen, sent this around and word got out. Sorry verisign, I intended to give you more time to react.

I am flying over to spend the weekend with the lovely sweet Adeline, packing right now and having dinner with the canoe club in two minutes. I’ll write more about this later, including instructions on how to register your own paypal.com or slashdot.org domain.
