HOWTO: PPTP: Ubuntu Client connect to Windows VPN Server

The company I work for just starting to use Windows ISA Server (or whatever) in some places.
And also, they use the Windows server to be a VPN server.
As Micro$oft doesn't officially support OpenVPN, and we don't consider IPsec to be used for end users, they decide to use the fu*king insecure PPTP, which I would definitely never wanna try.
That's where my Nightmare starts.

After some tries, I can use the VPN on my Android phones, and it seems works fine on iPhone, too.

[Note] perlbrew + cpanm + perl 5.12.0

本文轉載自 使用 perlbrew 來安裝 perl-5.12.0 跟 cpanm 的筆記 - FourDollars Blog

perlbrew 的好處就是可以使用一般使用者的權限來安裝 perl 跟其模組,不用擔心會破壞到原本系統的穩定性。

首先去抓 gugod 在 GitHub 上的 perlbrew 接者開始安裝 perl-5.12.0

git clone git://github.com/gugod/App-perlbrew.git
cd App-perlbrew
./perlbrew install
./perlbrew init
source ~/perl5/perlbrew/etc/bashrc
perlbrew install perl-5.12.0
perlbrew switch perl-5.12.0

然後去抓 miyagawa 在 GitHub 上的 cpanm 回來安裝

KVM - build ubuntu guest, bridge network and iptables port forwarding

Once you install and setup KVM, configure kvm itself and system network bridge interface correctly on your Ubuntu server,
you can now starting to build a guest OS / disk image, run it, and use iptables to forward connections to those new VPSes.

Build guest:

HTTP_PROXY="Proxy_IP:Port" sudo ubuntu-vm-builder kvm hardy \
--dest 'DEST_DIR'\
--hostname 'GUEST_HOSTNAME'\
--ip 'GUEST_IP_YOU_WANT'\
--arch 'i386'\
--mem '256'\
--rootsize '4096'\
--swapsize '1024'\
--kernel-flavour 'virtual'\
--domain 'bluet.org'\
--mirror 'http://ftp.twaren.net/ubuntu'\

How to flush / clean DNS cache in Linux

Sometimes your system caches too much on DNS query / records.

DNS caching helps alot on reducing time and bandwidth when your application needs DNS informations,
but just like anything else in the world; it's not a good thing when it does too over.

Let's see how to flush DNS cache in your system.

In Ubuntu:

$ sudo /etc/init.d/dns-clean restart
For Others:
Flush nscd DNS cache:

$ sudo /etc/init.d/nscd restart
OR
$ sudo service nscd restart
OR
$ sudo service nscd reload
OR
$ sudo nscd -i hosts
Flush dnsmasq dns cache

$ sudo /etc/init.d/dnsmasq restart

HITcon 2009 WasGame 解題分享

這次很開心跟 Dark, H4K, TW1943 一起組隊玩 wargame.
當初預定拿 200 分的目標有達到, 雖然沒拿第一名不過重點是培養了團隊默契, 感覺真的很棒.
回想起四五年前和 devil2k 一起 team hacking 德國佬網站的日子, 到現在已經很久沒有這種感覺了.
謝謝你, 2963. 啊不是, 我是說, 謝謝你們, Zuso Security 的朋友們.

其實應該可以再拿 80 分的... 因為
guestbook 在最後十分鐘 admin 沒進來, 所以沒拿到 session.
有兩題 windows 題在時間結束後十分鐘內解出來

此次 windows 題都是 Dark 跟 H4K 解的, 我只能分享 Unix 跟 Misc.

此次大多用 Perl, Firefox + Firebug + LiveHttpHeaders, telnel, strings, VirtualBox + XP 等工具解題

Unix1: 看 source code 後, 把參數準備好餵進去就行了. 在 PATH_INFO 卡一陣, 後來 h4k 找到了.

Unix2: 用黑刀 dezend 在 winxp 解出 source code, 再讀一讀就出來了.

I need 64bit kernel on my 32bit Ubuntu system...

1. I got 4G ram installed on my IBM X61 Laptop, with Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Desktop for i386 installed.
2. I need to use my whole 4G of ram bcoz I always has about 400 tabs opened in my Firefox.

All 32bit system can allocat only 33.5G of memory.

X61 uses Intel chips and VGA chip, which is some kind of shit.
Want to improve the xorg's intel driver, you got to install the latest kernel and driver, with UXA mode enabled.
Then, you might get glxgear score about 700~800fps, nice.

Now here comes the problem.

sockstat for Linux

sockstat was only for freebsd, now it's on linux too. something like ‘lsof -i -n’ or ‘netstat -anpe‘.

You can get the 0.3-1ubuntu1 version at the "Builds": https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/sockstat/0.3-1ubuntu1

I download it and install it on my jaunty i386 without any problem.
