    2/5

Well I just got back from my brothers wedding in Maui. We had a blast, what a beautiful place to get hitched! Now that I’m tanned and relaxed I’ll mention some upcoming things on WHG ;)

If you haven’t already I suggest checking out our antivirus.exim
tutorial at http://www.webhostgear.com/338.html Many people overlook
this little gem but it’s definately something you should consider
getting use to tinkering with.

I’m interested in knowing what kind of other things you’d like to see on
the site. More tutorials, interviews, reviews? Are you guys/gals after
something in particular then drop me a line
http://www.webhostgear.com/48.html

I’ve also been working on my own custom rulesets for antivirus.exim and
mod_security which are real nice and blocking a lot of new attacks out
there.

Hope everyone had a great week, I’ll keep you posted!

Steve

    This is what I see in nano /etc/xinetd.d/krb5-telnet<br />
    <br />
    # default: off<br />
    # description: The kerberized telnet server accepts normal telnet sessions, \<br />
    # but can also use Kerberos 5 authentication.<br />
    service telnet<br />
    {<br />
    flags = REUSE<br />
    socket_type = stream<br />
    wait = no<br />
    user = root<br />
    server = /usr/kerberos/sbin/telnetd<br />
    log_on_failure += USERID<br />
    disable = yes<br />
    }<br />
    <br />
