Got Owned by UAH-Crew


These people sure know how to leave their mark.  I should have been careful with my password in the first place, it was too easy. Looking through what they did and then working my way to get my site back, I could figure out the steps they followed:

1. They guessed my password using brute force, or something more clever, like sql injection.

2. Then they proceeded to  lock me out of my own site by changing my wordpress login, this step makes me feel they used sql injection.

3.They modified my existing wordpress theme to tell me and the visitors that they were here.

Till now, it seems they didn’t mean any serious harm to my site, but  I will have to do some research to really be sure.

cheers,

Mount FreeBSD partition on Linux HOWTO

This is the thread that helped me with this :
http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=285839

I have recently installed FreeBSD alongside OpenSUSE Linux on my computer. Since these two operating systems happen to share the hard disk real estate, I wanted to access the FreeBSD partition from Linux.

I tried many command line options and went through the mount man page, but I got the following error at my every attempt:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb3,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog – try
dmesg | tail  or so

Searching online I found out that mount expects an arguement named ufstype which as its name suggests, tells it which particular flavour of ufs I want to mount. And the manpage for mount told me that this should 44bsd for FreeBSD and other BSD descendants.

However, this didn’t seem to help. However, the thread I have mentioned above told me that the ufstype parameter should be ufs2 instead and whoa! it worked!

Hi everyone

Hello everyone,

I have been slow to get this off the ground. I always have alot of latency and am very unorganised at times. I will start making some sense out of it in in some time. I have wanted to have a space on the web where I do something that makes sense to me. This maybe a very common and excessively done boring novelty, but then I wanted to do this for past 9 years. I am giving it some form now.

One of the the next things I want to do with it is to gradually replace wordpress code with my own … another very overly done thing.

Our guy Linus did it with his little hobby operating system. Probably I could do it with this site. I have yet to find out how it will turn out.
