I have a UMax Hosting VPS which is very cheap but also very flakey.
This script (python / selenium) will log in and reboot your VPS – you could tie it to a Icinga Event Command for example.
By setting a minimum TTL on DNS records:
echo min-cache-ttl=300 | \ sudo tee /etc/dnsmasq.d/99-min-cache-ttl.conf # restart your pi-hole service
I’ve been getting “Property Spam” recently with subject lines like “A showcase of great properties on the Costa del Sol” or “Achieve high rental yields in an up-and-coming UK city”.
These are sent to addresses that have never signed up to any mailing list (but have been sent spam in the past and would be on spammers’ lists). These spammers are hosted by Online SAS and have a very slick operation (reverse DNS records, SPF records, DKIM, “clean” domain names typically registered ~6 months ago). The emails have no contact details, just a tracking link to receive a brochure.
I complained using Online SAS abuse form and just got this:
My apologies for the interruption
We have removed James from any future mailing
Is that this Steve Wroblewski on LinkedIn?
The domains are all registered on Namecheap and the websites just seem to be phishing exercises as the homepages are blank. An example site is http://www.diarioinca.org/showcase/marbella/index.php (deliberately left unlinked).
Anyway, the spam continues as they are using multiple Online SAS servers and fresh domains. Strangely the servers never appear in any RBLs either.
2 scripts I’ve written to monitor Linux system performance: check_pressure & check_meminfo
Some extensions I use:
Presumably as the old kernel version doesn’t support the capabilities.
A quick fix is to downgrade to the old 2.6.9 version here. Bear in mind the risks of running an older version that won’t get security patches etc.
If you use gnome-terminal, xfce4-terminal or others, install Gogh for beautiful terminal colour schemes.
The setting you’re looking for is listed under “Window manager tweaks”.
TIP: Ensure you have the full certificate chain for the zookeeper servers as well as for your client certificate on the client
Bloom is a REST API caching middleware, acting as a reverse proxy between your load balancers and your REST API workers.
It is completely agnostic of your API implementation, and requires minimal changes to your existing API code to work.
Bloom relies on redis, configured as a cache to store cached data. It is built in Rust and focuses on stability, performance and low resource usage.
