New Malware rules for OSSEC

August 25, 2010

Written by: Scott Shinn

In an ongoing effort to reduce overall ASL complexity, we’ve been working to expand the capabilities of one part or another where they overlap. This summer I gave our intern the project (among others!) to see if he could merge the rkhunter rootkit signatures into the ossec rootkit database.  I’m happy to report that not […]

PHP 5.3.3 in the works

August 23, 2010

Written by: Scott Shinn

So this saturday I found myself ultra-motivated to get this project back into gear. As a security company, supporting PHP and Mysql for enterprise environments isn’t exactly our core business. Which begs the question why we get involved in non-core projects like this (some might call this a “distraction”). I’ve found over the years that […]

Plesk 9.5.1 Repo

April 15, 2010

Written by: Scott Shinn

The Plesk 9.5.1 repo is now live. The changes made to the infrastructure over the last few months should make this largely transparent to anyone using the newer plesk.repo & mirrorlist format pushed out before december. This allows that part of the configuration to be managed from the server rather than the client. You shouldn’t […]

Atomic Accelerator – 0.1 (a prototype)

March 20, 2010

Written by: Scott Shinn

The first prototype for our HTTP acceleration project is out and about in the [asl-2.0-testing] channel. This is an attempt at building acceleration tech into apache using one of the more popular open source packages called nginx. So far the results have been promising, but not conclusive. One test showed a simple PHP based “Hello […]

[asl-2.0-testing] ASL 2.2.5-0.3

March 12, 2010

Written by: Scott Shinn

More updates relating to the new template code for psmon, ossec, and denyhosts. The biggest change here is that denyhosts is no longer in active response mode, OSSEC will be doing all the work. So in order to test this you will need to upgrade both ASL and OSSEC. The OSSEC update is also based […]

ASL 2.2.5-0.1 Test build

March 8, 2010

Written by: Scott Shinn

The first cut of ASL 2.2.5 is out in [asl-2.0-testing]. Initially I had planned to make this build all about the new dazuko module for the 2.6.32.x series kernels, but as we all know change is part of the design process. Instead there was a more pressing need for a template based configuration engine for […]

March 3, 2010

Written by: Scott Shinn

The first cut of psa-proftpd is now up, in addition to the standard version update structurally this package has changed around a bit. Internally it looks like the SFTP code has changed around enough to either break it completely or require some changes on our side to get working again.  This just goes to show […]
