I have 1000+ of these - and it appears the parent process for each I have checked is the same command... not sure what is going on... any ideas?

Important Lessons on Recovering from Petya

In their most recent webinar, Skyport Systems explores ways to isolate and protect critical databases to keep the core of your company safe from harm.

We have an SFTP setup and have a client that wants to know what protocols/hashing algos/encryption we allow.  I found this info, I'm not sure if this is good... should any of these be disabled?  Any insight would be helpful.

Thanks!

Hi,

I am currently researching techniques used to exfiltrate data, such as ICMP tunneling, SSH tunneling and DNS tunneling. I have come across the word "covert channels" but am not sure if this refers to the tunneling techniques I have mentioned. Can someone explain what the exfiltration techniques through tunneling are called? i am asking to try narrow down my research keywords. Not sure if they fall under covert channels.

Thanks in advance for your assistance

We have a vendor who has put his linux based appliance behind a firewall. If I ssh to the system from the same subnet as the linux appliance ssh succeed - giving me a login prompt and then succeeding with authentication. If I login to the linux appliance from the Outside of the firewall the conversation succeeds apparently - I get a login prompt. But when I enter the same credentials the connection is promptly terminated. If I look at the firewall I see only the allowed SSH session and no other denies to the server.
Any idea what might be going on? What logging could be looked at on the linux appliance to give us insight as to why the ssh connection is failing in the second case? Thank you

I added Centos AMI's to the US_WEST and cannot SSH into them"connection Refused" now I go back to the US-EAST and cannot SSH into them at all , all ports are open the security settings are all the same .


is there a limit to how many instances we can ssh into or something I am baffled about this ?

please help this is a production type issue ( giving a class )


how can I get more logs on the "connection refused" error

Hi Experts,

1. In what kind of environment , would we need to manage SSH keys?  
   Is it when we have multiple users sshing into any network device/Servers ?

2. Is there any software , that can be used to centrally deploy  different SSL certificates , and manage them (as in inform the admins about the date of expiry , etc.)


Thanks,

Hello Experts,

We are remediating security vulnerabilities.  I have several Ricoh MP 401SPF printers in our environment.  One of the vulnerabilities found was open TELNET.  I want to enable SSH and disable telnet.  I go into the printer interface and setup SSH as follows:

Ricoh1.png---Paint.png
When I try to SSH into the printer, I get the following error:

Ricoh2.png
When I look at the logs, I'm not seeing much that will help me.  Here are the logs:

Ricoh3.png
I've googled the error and have not come up with much.  I've deleted the key and recreated it.  I've also tried different clients.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,
Nick

I am running ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS \n \l  on a virutal machine.

Up until about 1 hour ago, I was able to SSH into my linux box just fine internally, in my network.
I did a sudo ufw disable, sudo reboot and then i just enabled back the firewall, sudo ufw enable, did a reboot,
and now I can't SSH into the server.

Any idea's what I have to do to fix the issue and allow the linux box to accept SSH?

I can get into it via the console.

Hello Experts,

I have number of HP blade enclosures to pull data from.  I've written a Python script to SSH to the enclosures and retrieve the data.   The script works but takes about 3 hours to complete.   Although the bulk of the code in the script parses the data, the bulk of the time involved is in setting the SSH session to each server.   Thus what I'd like to do is establish a means to run the processes in parallel.    I'm hoping someone can give me pointers in the right direction.

What I've Tried


1. My first stab at this with with the Parallel-SSH module (https://pypi.python.org/pypi/parallel-ssh).   That would have been the cleanest solution.   However, although I was able to connect to my enclosures, I was unable to retrieve output from any of my commands.  
2.  My current work around is to use Python's Multiprocessing module and specifically a pool as that seemed to be the simplest solution.   However, that's not working.   From the output the use of pool.imap results in mangled IP addresses.  Consider the following:

('OA IP is: ', u'1')
Now Processing OA 1.
Cannot connect to OA: 1.
[Errno None] Unable to connect to port 22 on 0.0.0.1

Here are some code snippets
def automatic_mode():
    enclosure_results_lst = []
    try:
        enclosures_lst = get_chassis_data() 
        # Function pulls IP addresses from another systm
        # Function return a Python list.  Example below
        # enclosures_lst = ['10.0.0.1', '10.0.0.1',

I did a telnat but it shows ports listening that is not required in their documentation.

We have an account that when someone SSHs in to it won't accept a password. If I login via Putty and su to the account I get asked for the password and when I put it in it's accepted. If I ssh to that account I'm asked for a password and it is rejected.

Hasn't been any real changes to the OS/Server but I'm not an Unix  pro. Where should I start?

Yes, I can delete and recreate it but I'd like to find the underlying issue.

Previously Bluecoat proxy allows access to SendThisFile service but sometime in
May, Bluecoat proxy has blocked it as "potential data loss/leakage".

I can see that SendThisFile has options for files transfer via PCs/laptops/emails
though previously when I could access, they have good encryptions etc.  Don't
recall SendThisFile is HIPAA & PCI certified.

What about IPSwitch (refers to link below):
https://www.ipswitch.com/resources/data-sheets/ipswitch-gateway
It's PCI & HIPAA certified but what else sets it apart from SendThisFile that it's
not a potential data loss/leakage source?  Some major insurance companies
want to exchange files with us using IPSwitch.

What I can think off are whether IPSwitch can restrict such that:
a) use only sftp that IPSwitch offers, not ftps (correct me, but I believe ftps is
   less secure than sftp)
b) don't allow transfer via PCs at both sender/recipients ends but this is
    something controlled at recipient/sender's ends right?  Not by IPSwitch
    or unless IPSwitch has an option that restricts connections from servers
    IP addresses of senders & recipients - does it have this option?
c) how is IPSwitch PCI certified?  They mask their customers data or have
    segregation of different customers (ie no co-mingling)?
d) how else can we restrict such that sender/recipient do connect from
     public places & homes of their staff but only from their organizations'
     servers?
e) I suppose we should not allow …

Hi,

I am using secureCRT version 8.0.4 on windows 10. Whenever I ssh into any of the devices, there is no terminal length set for example when i ssh into cisco router and give a command of Show Run it displays the whole configuration instead giving breaks i.e.--more-- in the middle like in putty.

How can i achieve the same using secureCRT?

I found a really nice looking example of how to do telnet over VB.  

It is the last post on this page:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9113632/test-telnet-communication-on-remote-computer-using-vb-net

It looks to be exactly what I need, but I don't know how to use it.  

I want to use it to connect to cisco routers and issue commands.  

I've built a form to do it, but, I have a really silly problem.  I don't know how to instantiate the class, set the settings and use it!

I don't do a lot of VB and this bit has stumped me.  

Ideally, if you checkout the code below and assuming it is ok,  tell me how to:
1.  Connect to a telnet device using the hostname from a textbox called txtHostRouter and the port number from a textbox called txtPortNumber
2.  Recieve whatever output (probably a password prompt)  into a text box called txtOutput.  
3.  Send some input from a text box called txtInput for example "show Run"
4.  Recieve the output into a different text box called txtOutput.  

So I can keep doing 3) and 4) until I am finished and then close the connection.  

I am not sure where to start, so even if you just get me started, I bet I can work it out.  

I have pasted the code below

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks in advance
