Network your music with DAAP for Linux

Apple’s iTunes popularized the Digital Audio Access Protocol (DAAP) for simple networked music playlist sharing. Linux users can take advantage of it too. Linux users can choose from several easy-to-use DAAP servers for sharing music, and several DAAP-aware applications for listening to it — as well as discover and tune in to other people’s collections.

DAAP was developed at Apple as a simple extension of HTTP. A good repository of information about DAAP is available at opendaap.org. DAAP clients and servers discover each other through ZeroConf and exchange basic information about their capabilities over HTTP, using the MIME type application/x-dmap-tagged and speaking on TCP port 3689.

TheOneGreatX.com » Cracking Windows Passwords:

There are multiple ways to crack Windows passwords. The easiest way is to download Cain & Abel and use that (the interface is quite self-explanatory, so I won’t go into that). But that involves installing software. What happens if you don’t have access to a user account with Administrator privileges (because, for instance you forgot the password to the only one). What do you do then? Here’s a tutorial:

            Stan : “Why would God let Kenny die, Chef? Why? Kenny’s my friend. Why can’t God take someone else’s friend?”

Chef : “Stan, sometimes God takes those closest to us, because it makes him feel better about himself. He is a very vengeful God, Stan. He’s all pissed off about something we did thousands of years ago. He just can’t get over it, so he doesn’t care who he takes. Children, puppies, it don’t matter to him, so long as it makes us sad. Do you understand?”

Stan : “But then, why does God give us anything to start with?”

Chef : “Well, look at it this way: if you want to make a baby cry, first you give it a lollipop. Then you take it away. If you never give it a lollipop to begin with, then you would have nothin’ to cry about. That’s like God, who gives us life and love and help just so that he can tear it all away and make us cry, so he can drink the sweet milk of our tears. You see, it’s our tears, Stan, that give God his great power.”

Stan : “I think I understand.”

Five-Minutes to a More Secure SSH 04.22.06

Here is a quick way to drastically improve the security of your OpenSSH server installations. Apart from past flaws in the OpenSSH daemon itself that have allowed remote compromise (very rare), most break-ins result from successful brute-force attacks. You can see them in your firewall, system or auth logs, they are an extremely common form of attack. Here is an excerpt from the /var/log/messages file on a CentOS Linux box (the attacking hostname has been obfuscated). You can see multiple attempts to login as users root and ftp. Also note the time between repeated attempts – one second or less, much too quick to be a human. This is an automated attack.
