The PyWacket [Trac] Server

All things about operational issues on good old port 8087 ... probably of no interest to anyone.

PyWacket Exposed

As of Jan 21 2016

Getting fairly serious traffic on the Trac wiki, by my standards. Using about 220M, up from about 30-50M. Seems to be about 100MB on network per day.

Also getting hundreds of broken pipe messages, mostly on Timeline ... seem to be related to connection time outs ?

trac.Timeline.* = disabled
trac.ticket.roadmap.* = disabled 

In fact, I'm trying to disable as many features as possible.

Attacks on ports 8085-86 from port 6000

A custom attack tool has been been deployed on some Chinese IPs. This is a combination of a SSH scanner based on RAW socket and a SSH bruteforce tool. It tries to gain access to the root account of system via the ssh service. On an organisational level, it is possible there is a Chinese initiative trying to get the low-hanging fruit (system with ssh root account protected by password) or maybe it is just a some organization using some compromised Chinese IPs to try to get control other more boxes.

Security Resources

We cover Broadband Internet connections, network security and system performance. A large section of SG focuses on Cable Modems and DSL technology, stressing on improving TCP/IP performance over high speed/latency networks.

Crashed !!!

Publishing Process

Working out version stripping and automated ftp ( db and images ). Should help with some of the more aggressive index engines hitting all 28 versions of a page ...

Just a standard copy-down header to distinguish the the published site from my private site...
