All script kiddies must die!

Forgive me bretheren for it has been more than a week since my last wittering..

This is going to be one of those catching up posts, so bear with me: so a quick resume…

Thursday 22nd: Parents arrive for long weekend.

23rd: Parents pop off to my Nan’s in Derbyshire for day whilst I’m at work.
I pop into Oxford and buy DVDs of “2001: A Space Odyssey”
and “Galaxy Quest” from the 2 for 1 sale.

Saturday 24th: Do shopping, do DIY with my dad.

Sunday 25th: Do DIY.

Monday 26th: Do DIY and find out in the evening that our web server was hacked Sunday afternoon.

Tuesday 27th: Diagnose hacking incident & start rebuild of web server. Fight off some sort of gastric flu-y thing. Parents drove back to Cornwall.

Wednesday 28th: Continue web server rebuild. In the evening go out to pub with Katie, Sam et al.

Thursday 29th: Finish web server rebuild and add extra security.

OK, that’s the quick run-down. Now for some proper comments.

I Wish I’d discovered that /etc/init.d/sshd on the web server had been pointing
to the correct sshd binary.. it would have made life a whole lot easier.

(2) Last night at
the pub was fun. However, it seemed as far as Sam was concerned the BBQ hug
etc. never existed and she seemed somewhat remote and disinterested. C’est
la vie.

Anyway, that’s all that’s happened, for better or worse.
