comment State of VM after 'virsh save'
There is one: Windows VMs with apps open that users leave without closing their apps (they typically quit by simply closing remote desktop client window and expect to be able to reconnect at any time to resume work). I have to back those up, and forcing Win VM to shutdown can damage apps' data files.

comment State of VM after 'virsh save'
I have a problem with pt. 1 - after all, that's saving live OS, with all the apps open. This may often (sometimes?) not be a problem with Linux SW, but Windows apps typically have their data files open and in messy state. Essentially starting an OS and asking apps to open their "snapshotted" data (as opposed to data files that are normally closed on app close) is asking for trouble of much bigger magnitude than mere time difference for OS. I have snapshotted and restored to working state live image of Windows 7 this way with open apps. I'm not sure if pt. 1 is a good idea with Win7.

P.S. I know this too many comments, but what are the ways that one can fool Host: header with?

comment Another domain points to my webserver
Turns out there's nginx in front, I managed to get it done this way: stackoverflow.com/questions/18970620/… server_name (foo.bar, .foo.bar) emphatically does NOT work for this in nginx. I'd mark your answer as accepted, except it does not contain wider info on wider security on just what kind of attack it might be.
