The project lives, and is working on a 2.0 revision: https://github.com/vgough/encfs "EncFS has been dormant for a while. I've started cleaning up in order to try and provide a better base for a version 2, but whether EncFS flowers again depends upon community interest. In order to make it easier for anyone to contribute, it is moving a new home on Github. ...

clamav will probably detect this virus?, don't know how to clean files though. You probably need to start a recovery session, mount the live cd manually. Copy init off the cd onto your hard disk.

I wrote a small tutorial on doing this recently. Basically, you need to be using PKI and my tutorial also shows how to use Two-Factor Authentication for even more security. Even if you use none of those things, there's also some tidbits about securing the server by removing weak cipher suites and other basics. ...

From the output of lsblk, it turns out the partition is already mounted, in /media/c436695a-0830-4e33-b6c6-61a54d801ab1. The output of ls -la /media made clear why you did not have access to the partition; owner (root) and group (www-data) have full permissions (rwx) , others (like you) have no permission at all (---), that includes read access. What you ...

This is a simple misunderstanding as there are many types of software in the software center. There is Free and Open Source software, that is not only free but licensed under a open source license. Then there is software available to buy this is usually proprietary but sometimes open source as a developer can make it easier to access by putting a lot of ...

The accounts.conf file is also used by the new Ubuntu online accounts configuration. The problem seems to be that after an upgrade the old entry from the original Gnome online accounts application is left. The new online accounts utility adds entries after the previous one which is the one causing the problem. This is the old entry in my case from ...

Yes, it does look as if encfs is no longer maintained. It is in Ubuntu 14.04 because it still is in Debian wheezy. It has been removed from Debian jessie, so should be gone from future versions of Ubuntu. Like the OP in this Debian bug report, I do not have the competence to judge this, but I recommend that you do not use it unless you have to, given the ...

Try changing the owner and group of that directory to www-data and setting permissions for owner/group to rwx sudo chown -R www-data:wwwdata /var/www/html/assets/img sudo chmod -R 755 /var/www/html/assets/img

www-data is the user that the apache2 webserver runs as in Ubuntu. (Usually that user has a UID of 33, the number you see.) So files created using the webserver are owned by that file. When you create a file thus, the umask of the server comes into play and any permissions you set are controlled by the umask. You can work around this in three ways: Use ...

Assuming you have permission to use sudo on your desktop, then you have enough permissions to view anything connected to it. You also, of course, have authority to change the permissions on the disk, if you so desire. It depends on what you want to do. If you simply want to access the data, but not use the drive any more, you can mount the drive, then ...

To prevent ports from opening, you should stop the services opening them (or disable their automatic startup). Then, you will be able to start or stop them manually using the service command. Of course, it's possible to block ports with a firewall, but this will run useless services and create errors. BTW, the port 443 is allocated to bacula (a distributed ...

I highly doubt think you were hacked. Maybe some automated bot TRIED doing something, but I doubt that even happened.. If you disabled Password Auth and did not have a public key set up, there is very very little chance of anything even possibly happening. In answer to your auth.log queries: That is just PAM complaining about something. Usually just a ...

NX is already secure since it uses encryption and authentication so there is no need to tunnel or use something else. from their feature matrix here: Secure communication protected by SSL cryptography Full encryption for UDP traffic Kerberos password authentication PAM based authentication Support for industry standard SSH protocol Kerberos ticket ...

The game is installed in a directory owned by the user who installs it and runs with privileges from that user. For this method to become to start to be a problem you need to be asked the admin password and provide it. So never run this program with sudo or as root. never install this program with sudo or as root. when prompted for an admin password ...

If an application doesn't require root to install, then the application is in fact "safer" (I quoted safer because, in general, an application can still be harmful if you don't know what it does whether you used sudo or not. e.g. Maybe it will sniff around your home directory and start uploading some confidential data, and you wouldn't need root access for ...

The fix that I finally found is the answer in this thread: Can't connect to WPA2 Enterprise PEAP. I will sum it up here. All I did was add the auth-alg=open to the file /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/MYCONNECTION, at the bottom of the [802-11-wireless-security] section of the document. I hope this helps more people than just me.

Listen: Those lines show services you have running, waiting to be contacted Established Network connections that are active Close_wait Network connections that are about to being closed Local address Services: here you see the local IP-address, where that service is listening and (after a :) the port it is listening on, with 127.0.0.1, 127.0.1.1, ...

631 is used by CUPS (the print service daemon). 445 is used by Samba (used to share files with Windows PCs over the network). 139 is used by nmbd, part of the Samba setup. 25 and 527 are SMTP ports. You have a mail server running on your system. 53 is used by the DNS server. 111 is used for Remote Procedure Calls. Some services depend on this. 80, of ...

The entries in your auth.log involving the gdm user appear normal. This is nothing to worry about. I'm not sure what you mean by "unauthenticated logins" but if you just mean no human entered a username and password for them, that's not a problem. If you're referring to where it says "Unregistered Authentication Agent," that does not mean a login occurred ...

I think you are worrying about nothing GDM is the gnome display manager, it is responsible for making your log in screen look gnome themed. Try doing this to find out sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm You can in fact use lightdm instead of gdm, the procedure is same for both. Using the above mentioned command will take you to a warning page. Enter to get back to ...
