I'm mainly a python programmer with experience in C++ and Java. I am familiar with Windows, Linux, and Mac. I maintain a document management webapp at work. I focus on developing other webapps and video games in my own time. I have too many hobbies.

comment Project Honeypot says my mail server has become a spammer
Good tip, I agree. I thought I had longer logging configured already, but apparently on Ubuntu this is done by /etc/cron.daily/sysklogd NOT by logrotated. I am not sure why they use the two different methods for rotating log files.

comment Project Honeypot says my mail server has become a spammer
I have checked the logs, I suppose they don't go back far enough. I don't think it's a duplicate. Those features I have already configured, and I have confirmed they are working. This is something beyond those basic protections.

And I do agree that it's quite probably a legitimate user infected by a virus, the trick is going to be tracking down which one. Many family and friends have email accounts, as well as a few very small businesses who I help out with IT things.

comment Project Honeypot says my mail server has become a spammer
I'm running postfix on Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS. I'll be upgrading to 14.04 LTS as soon as I'm comfortable that it's stabilized. I've searched the logs for all those strings (including the archived compressed logs) and found nothing. Unfortunately the mail logs only go back to April 08, and I have no idea what dates I would be looking for if I were to pull backups.

comment Linux mdadm RAID5 data recovery with one drive failed, one drive failing
I have nowhere to put the disk images at the moment unfortunately, and you're right they are Seagate Barracudas. As soon as I get the new Seagate Constellations that I ordered (which should be a bit more reliable) I will take some images of the old array.

comment Linux mdadm RAID5 data recovery with one drive failed, one drive failing
I don't have a spare healthy drive of adequate size at the moment (just ordered a bunch) so whenever I get them I might give this a try. Michael Hampton makes a very good point, but at this point I'm more or less resigned to the data being a half-broken mess. I guess it's just my digital-hoarder nature that I would like to try to recover whatever bits and pieces I can from it. I do have a backup, it's just not as recent as I would like.

comment Running multiple copies of openssh-server (sshd) on Ubuntu
I know this is from awhile ago, I just wanted to say that this was a beautiful solution (why didn't I think of that!) and I have been using it happily ever since.
