I taught myself programming on a recycled Compaq 9071GL running Mandrake at the tender age of 12 and have been debating compilers ever since.

comment Removing Debug-Program privileges via GPO - should I leave Local System?
The answer is that you'll certainly be fine disabling debug privs on LocalSystem as long as no other service needs to access any other services page file. The password cache limit is well-known and AFAIK disabled in Win7. You can dump the LSA and get old info, but I've always considered changing the cache limit to 0 as standard security practice.

comment How can I disable encryption on openssh?
I could also point out, You can use something like socat (dest-unreach.org/socat) to do the same thing AND avoid all the SSH protocol overhead.

For the C-inclined among us, you can add in { "none", SSH_CIPHER_NONE, 8, 0, 0, EVP_enc_null } to cipher.c in the cipher array.

comment Servers harrassed by individual on constantly changing IPs
But seriously, One post suggests tracing, Which the original poster has already contacted UK law enforcement, So it can safely be assumed that he already knows the originating IP, or the proxy, either way its not relevant. If you've visiting or seen any EDers, You're well aware that getting someone's line pulled for harassment is nigh impossible. The other suggests potentially complex modifications to a piece of software with unintended results (If its C, Get ready for some IDA!). If he's from Iran or a Central African Republic - He's in the legal clear. I'm just saying - Its an option.

My point is proven. When I said 'abuse contacts' I mean in relationship to Hacking and I imagine ESPECIALLY harassment attempts, I have never, literally NEVER heard of success on the ISP level.

Its also worth noting that SElinux will block what he's trying to do. Likewise with hardened.

comment recommend firewall options for a dedicated server
I think any good is a stretch. Theres many features it lacks, and in a not so distant past ksecdd was vulnerable to a use-after-free condition stemming from how the firewall processed malformed ICMP packets - Among other problems. It can't be trusted.
