I have an ssh honeypot analyzer at longtail.it.marist.edu at Marist College and it shows that the second most popular account after root is "admin", and that the most common account/password tried is ubnt/ubnt.
Anybody who's been paying attention knows that default passwords on home routers are high on the bad guy's list of accounts to hack.
The LongTail SSH Honeypot AND the analysis tools are released upder GPLV2 and are available for BETA testing at GitHub
A) It should only update bash
B) Also run yum -y update bash
C) This has been discussed for years, and the general consensous has always been it's better to not patch their systems (allthough I disagree with that. If you left your system open, you're just asking for somebody else to patch it for you, IMHO)
The email attributed the piece to "Colonel L. Caudill USMC (Ret)." We did some research and found that apparently there is no Col (or Major) L. Caudill USMC (Ret). Rather it appears that the essay was written by Marko Kloos and posted on his blog on March 23, 2007. You can read more of his essays by clicking here. Unfortunately there are none posted after July, 2008. But if you like the essay above you will also find this one interesting, particularly if you are in the market for a handgun. And there are other gun related pieces on Marko's blog you will likely be interested in.
Take a look at google for more details
I'd rather have a smaller vehicle, but honestly, the cost to me to have two vehicles is more than I'd save by driving a commuter car to work, and the pickup on the weekends. BUT, I just ran the numbers again, and at $4.00 per gallon of gas, a commuter car would save me $1,430 a year (17 mpg for my truck, and assuming 40 mpg for a commuter car). Extra insurance per year is $900, so now I'm only saving $530 per year.There's no way I can get a commuter car for $530 a year, so I stick with my truck. And don't try telling me that I can always rent a truck when I need one. I USE my truck, AS A TRUCK, every week. I carry bikes, camping gear, fishing gear, lumber, dogs, yard stuff (dirt, mulch, topsoil, plants). During the fall, I use it as a truck to haul tons of mulch around, and I tend to fill up the truck with mulch easily more than 40 times.
Basically, I'm stuck with my truck.
