I’m moving st0rage.org to a new server. Same connection, just better hardware.
I will only be migrating accounts that have been used since March 16th, to cut down on the amount of dead accounts st0rage.org has.
The move starts tonight; please expect a few hours of downtime.
I recently received this email from someone ([email protected] actually ;)). I was behind on my email, wish I had seen this sooner.
You did a good job at hardening your server but you forget /dev/shm
I used http://www.ping.uio.no/~mortehu/disable-vmsplice-if-exploitable.c to patch
your kernel on-the-fly.
But update your kernel.
I’d like to thank the person who contacted me about it, and thank them for fixing the problem. That is probably the coolest thing ever to happen on st0rage. 🙂
Just figured I’d let everyone know; first root exploit since 2004. Whooo! 😀
I figured I’d post some information here about recent outages.
I plan on moving st0rage.org over to a new server soon, and there are going to be some changes (user quotas for the first time ver, yay!). I’ll also be offering a paid service, along with an increased free service.
It’s been a lot of work, and has caused some downtime (usually less than 30 minutes). People using irssi I’m sure havn’t been happy. 😉
Sorry about all the trouble, things will be much nicer soon (moving to a much more stable connection).
