Attacking Multicore CPUs (new Vulnerability Discussion From Slashdot/The Register)

Sep 16, 2007

Attacking multicore CPUs

"The Register reports that the world of current multi-core central processing units (CPUs) just entered is facing a serious threat. A security researcher at Cambridge disclosed a new class of vulnerabilities that takes advantage of concurrency to bypass security protections such as anti-virus software The attack is based on the assumption that the software that interacts with the kernel can be used without interference. The researcher, Robert Watson, showed that a careful written exploit can attack in the little timeframe when this happens, and literally change the "words" that they are exchanging. Even if some of these dark aspects of concurrency were already known, Watson proved that real attacks can be developed, and showed that developers have to fix their code. Fast..."

Ixwebhosting ....

Jun 29, 2009

I've been on ixwebhosting and about high time I change since:

1. I received numerous feedback from visitors about its tortoise-speed loading despite host's claim to have 'no problem' with it,

2. My site got hacked (from China) and customer support could not identify the exact source of the problem.

My site runs on ASP.NET and MSSQL. I need a fast server and large enough one to operate a website like novica dot com.

$20+/month is about how much I can afford at the moment, so looking for a host that allows my site to expand with the business.

My Review On IXWebhosting

Jan 29, 2009

my domain [url] was hosted with ixwebhosting for the last 1 year. Before that I had 4 more domains hosted with Ixwebhosting. I will write up a review of me being a customer with them for the last 2 years and 2 months. Unlike most people, I was not entirely unhappy with their service, however the jotdown with points in different categories in this review will help you from deciding wither you want to go with them or not.

My Hosting Plan: Unlimited Pro

* Unlimited Domains

* Unlimited Transfer

* Unlimited Web Space

* 2 Free Domain Regs

* 8 Dedicated IPs

* Ecommerce Ready!

Why I joined them?

Because, I saw some reviews back in 2006 and I found out nothing but good reviews and in fact that year, they won the Webhosting Company of the Year Award from a very reliable hosting review company. I was excited to see the words "Unlimited", but little did I know what I was getting into.

Their chat support is indeed a handy thing but its full of people who dont know what they are doing. Everytime you open up a ticket in the control panel, always give the chat support client, the ticket ID and tell them to fix it right away. They will reply back within 1 day which is just lame but if you dont bother chatting with them, then expect a reply in 3-5 days time.

Their Unlimited Pro was based on the same servers shared with everyone else in their clients list. It was good enough for my forum when I had around 30-40 users online at once, but when it became 100 users online a day, you would get MYSQL errors and server downtime every now and then.

Loading Speed:

Loading was considerably very slow, I never found it even comparable to 1and1.

Money Back Guarantee:

Believe it or not, I got my money back when I asked for it after renewing my contract for another 2 years. I could not decide whether to go with them or not, but I just signed up for the heck of it. Later, I realized I needed to move right away, I did not care about the refund but they were nice enough to keep the promise for the Anytime Money Back guarantee. I did not get all the money back because they would charge you for the domains you have with them.

Worst Experience with them:

Novemeber 20, 2008 was my renewal date with them. I signed up in 2006 November for a 2 year agreement. In november, 19th, a guy with a funny Ukrainaian name "Tiberiu" from system administration sent me an e-mail saying I am violating their terms of service by having a big disk space. remember they said unlimited disk space and I stored only 5 gigs worth of data. But still, they threatened me the day before my renewal date. I was shocked and mad, they threatened to suspend my account if I dont take any action within 5 business days. I deleted most of the contents and kept nothing important, making all recommended backups. I signed up with them for another two years as I was a fool lost and not knowing what to do. If I wanted to move to another host, I would have my site on downtime. I could not take anymore downtime, as a result, I earned some more money and decided to move to a VPS.

Why I moved to VPS?

As they say, you get what your pay for and I got it. I understood my lesson. My site is more valuable than the 310 dollars they charge me for a 2 year agreement. My website is right now very successful with an alexa rank of 60,000+. With all this traffic and so much addictive members in my website, I had to move to a reliable place where you would pay more and get more as well.

Notes to other webmasters:

You can definitely sign up with IXwebhosting if you are new in the web development zone. But, always research and read reviews, understand the promises they make and never take anything for granted. And most of all, make regular backups (database and file contents). I know my vps guys monitor my server and keep regular backups, but I schedule my sites backup every week or less and believe me its a relief! I made my sites myself, edited all the commercial scripts (vbulletin, photopost, joomla etc.). I did it because, I have a passion. Always explore all the possibilities and go with a reliable hosting company. Don't depend on any of them and pay more for a better host plan if you love your site as much as I do.

Just Flogged By Ixwebhosting

Aug 27, 2008

i just purchased hosting from ixwebhosting about 9days ago and just for the last 3 days, i have not been able to use any FTP client to check my directories.

The username and password both passes the test but when its about to list the directories/files on the server, it say 'failed'. I have contacted them several times and they seem not to find any problem with it.

So folks, i have decided to pack in. The weird thing is am able to use their C-panel FTP Manager to login and alter the directories on my server BUT not with independent FTP's.

Guys, in terms of reliability, which host is best from hostgator, hostmonster, bluehost, lunarpages, webhostingpad, Dot5hosting and inmotion?

Frequent Rebooting

Jul 14, 2007

I have a server that is monitored with a system that automatically reboots if a service appears to be down. The server is being rebooted several times a month and it seems to be getting more frequent.

The server load is almost never high. It's a dual Xeon with hyperthreading and the load is almost always below 1. Practically the only time it goes high is during cPanel backup and it hardly ever reboots during that.

The DC tried replacing the RAM, but a day and a half later it rebooted again.

The server has 1 fairly active MySQL message board and 3 fairly high bandwidth sites (images and video clips), and the rest of the sites are quite small and inactive. One thing the tech said was "Apache gets a lot of traffic so I'm not surprised to see an apache restart once a month or so. You have 115 concurrent connections to apache and over 25,000 hits in the last 2 hours alone" but I've gotten reboots a few times/week.

Burned By IXWebhosting, How To Find A *secure* Host?

Nov 13, 2008

I'm a customer of IXWebhosting (actually their alias HostExcellence) and I'm completely disgusted. Their latest crime is denying and covering up a security problem which allows scripts to be inserted via cache directories. I now have people complaining of Bloodhound Exploit messages from their Norton Antivirus software. It's being done by somebody else on their servers, in turn infecting everybody else (for several weeks now).

Several months ago, they began SPAMMING the error pages with search engine affiliate links, which I'm sure they collect money from. I said I wanted them off, they said "do it yourself" using custom error pages.

Their outgoing e-mail servers are constantly blacklisted.

Whenever the database or main server fails, they never catch this on their own. I always have to call or create a support ticket.

Needless to say, I'm tired of their BS.

How do I find a replacement host that takes SECURITY seriously? Are there report cards anywhere?

Frequent Failure Notices (exim, Clamd, Etc.)

Dec 12, 2007

On 11/29/07, I posted the following question, but have received no replies to date:


TITLE: Are frequent failure notices common with VPS hosting?

We have a VPS1 account at Liquid Web ($60/month). Below I have copied just the most recent series of failure notices (clamd, cpsrvd, exim, ftpd, mysql, pop, spamd). We tend to receive these by e-mail on a fairly regular basis, accompanied by the usual message "A restart was attempted automagicly."

Since March 2006, when we first switched our web host to LW, there have been well over a hundred of them.

My question is: Are such frequent failures commonplace (i.e.: benign) on a VPS, or should I be concerned about them?

I usually check our web site after receiving each notice, and it is always up by the time I get there. Nevertheless, it would be nice to know if all these occurrences are considered normal. For example, 19 exim failures over a 6.5-hour span on 9/29/07 do seem a bit extreme.

If anyone reading this thread is technically inclined, I'd like to know what process or hardware state is usually responsible for causing such failures.

FYI, I use cPanel in my web browser to administer the site from a Macintosh computer running OS 9.2.2. I have never used SSH, and have also never read any raw logs. If I did, I'm not sure what they would tell me about this, anyway.

I should also say that our site uses nowhere near the capacity provided by our VPS1 account. We are well below the maximum HD space and monthly allowable bandwidth. The site uses only standard HTML, text include files, and GIF/JPG graphics files; no streaming. There is only limited use of a CGI script for routine form submissions, and currently there are no PHP scripts running for BBs, calendars, blogs, chat rooms, or any MySQL databases being used. In short, I would think that the site places little load on the server or its processes.

I would greatly appreciate any feedback.

This morning, I received a total of 17 failure notices over the span of 2h19m, as follows:

cpanel @ 12/12/07, 5:36 AM clamd on failed
cpanel@ 12/12/07, 5:45 AM clamd on failed

(Note that our real host name has been replaced above with "xxxxxx" to prevent possible spamming.)

I would appreciate any comments from experienced VPS customers or technicians, as to whether these incidences are considered normal with all VPS accounts, or if they might be indicative of a more severe problem with our web host's (Liquid Web) server.

As I mentioned on 11/29/07, "I use cPanel in my web browser to administer the site from a Macintosh computer running OS 9.2.2. I have never used SSH, and have also never read any raw logs. If I did, I'm not sure what they would tell me about this, anyway."

In the course of reading a number of posts in another WHT thread, there seems to be little agreement on the possible causes. Some have suggested that (1.) there may be "no space left on the device"; (2.) we may be "out of Semaphores" (I have no idea what those are!); (3.) we may be "out of RAM"; (4.) "/tmp is full"; or that (5.) "something is wrong with /tmp permission."

When I inquired in 2006 to Liquid Web's technical support about these recurrent failures, I was told that they are normal with this sort of hosting account. We pay them a hosting fee with the expectation of receiving an accurate diagnosis, but it would be very helpful to receive some impartial, third-party input.

What Tools Do You Use To Track Down Frequent Apache Segmentation Faults

Anti-Virus Recommendations

Apr 13, 2009

We have 2 servers, one running Windows 2003 Enterprise that hosts a ColdFusion app, and one running Windows 2003 Standard that hosts our SQL database that is used by the CF app. Nothing else runs on them.

Does anyone have any suggestions for anti-virus products that we could use on these? I don't want one of those elaborate and expensive "suite" programs. I just need to protect the boxes.

I use Kaspersky on our individual machines, and I really don't care much for Norton anymore.

Does anyone know of any virus protection software that will work with Cpanel. Actually it probably doesn't have to work with Cpanel.. but here is my situation..

I have a lot of people uploading PDF’s and Word docs to our MySQL database, for other people to download. So far I have been downloading the files to my computer first and scanning them, then approving them. it would be nice if I can automate this check some how. I'm wondering of anyone out there does this sort of thing with the dedicated servers they run. Maybe just putting virus software on the server is good enough.

My Limestone Server - Virus Attacked Or What?

Jul 23, 2009

Alright guys - my server the past two weeks is just freaking ridiculous. It's a Core2Quad Q9300 2.5ghz server with 8gb of ram. It should be fast as hell. I can't move 20 e-mails in my mail client without the server grinding to a complete halt and httpd and mysql going unresponsive. Right now I'm just trying to copy a damned screen shot of the task manager performance tab and it's taking about 3 minutes to paste it - even though the CPU utilization is averaging only 20% at the moment and memory is only 2.5gb.

I restarted WAMP and now it seems to be running smoother. My Outpost firewall, though, didn't show too many connections to the server that it was maxing out.

Here's my ping responses just now while I was typing this - I was watching the firewall connections and I was only having like 60 connections to httpd, 20 connections to mysql, 5-10 to my SmarterTools mail server, and then my remote desktop connection. My network utilization got up to a whole 5% - so it's not that I have too many connections or something. Here's the ping responses:
