  9. ConfigServer Outgoing Spam Monitor (osm) has been designed to use multiple methods to monitor outgoing email and SMTP connections for activity that could indicate a spammer is active on a server. With the proliferation of web scripts in shared hosting environments that are often poorly maintained or badly written, the chances of a hacker exploiting vulnerabilities in scripts is at an all time high. Additionally, end-user PC's and other devices that send email through a server (relay) that have been compromised and used as a spam source has always been a problem. These issues along with spammers deliberately targeting hosting providers by purchasing accounts simply to send out spam have kept the diligence required to prevent spam from being sent from servers all the more difficult. osm is for any server owner using cPanel that is concerned about future or active attempts to send out spam email through the server. It targets all the methods available to keep track of outgoing email and SMTP connections. It is designed to be used entirely from the cPanel WHM UI, which provides both configuration and viewing of reports generated by a daemon process running continuously on the server. Features Outgoing email sent via exim is tracked by cPanel account Matching Subject headers for outgoing email sent via exim is tracked by cPanel account Script path location (cwd) is tracked by cPanel account Matching script path location (cwd) is tracked by cPanel account Outgoing SMTP connections to remote servers (that bypass exim) are tracked by cPanel account Matching script path location for outgoing SMTP connections to remote servers (that bypass exim) are tracked Authenticated outgoing email is tracked by email account and connecting IP address osm uses real-time Packet Inspection to track SMTP connections, this is primarily useful if you cannot use the csf SMTP_BLOCK or cPanel provided equivalent feature Configurable trigger levels for each type of tracking by cPanel account on a per email/connection per second basis Apache Status information us used to link outgoing email with actual scripts being used Multiple actions can be performed once a report is raised after a trigger level is reached: Send an email report of the events Store the report of events to view in the WHM UI Hold outgoing email from the cPanel/email account in the exim queue Discard outgoing email from the cPanel/email account Suspend the whole cPanel account Prevent the email account from logging in Rename the reported path Run the custom script configured in the WHM UI Rename the file determined from the Apache Status Block the IP address (AUTHRELAY, ALWAYSRELAY, POPRELAY, Apache Status) in csf Custom action script is configurable and can be sent JSON, YAML, XML and PERL data structures to allow for client specific actions Inheritance rules are used to configure all trigger levels for each cPanel account plus the default settings Frequently Asked Questions Please read the osm FAQ before ordering osm. Product Requirements cPanel/WHM (supported versions) Server with static IPv4 address (for licensing) Redhat/CentOS/CloudLinux Linux v6/7 Apache with mod_status required for the Apache Status feature Pcap Kernel access via libpcap required for SMTP Packet Interception csf for IP address blocking Product Limitations Without mod_status configured via Easyapache, the Apache Status feature cannot be used mod_rewrite rules in local htaccess files may break Apache Status functionality IP addresses triggers are controlled by the "Default" settings in Event Configuration Duplication of reports will occur between logline and cwdcheck report types as they are often referring to the same email event. However, each event type offers different triggers to detect outgoing spam patterns The SMTP Packet Interception feature will not function on Virtuozzo/OpenVZ Servers (and other types of custom kernel) as the kernels do not support Pcap access See the osm FAQ for additional information Note: The Packet Inspection feature will not function on Virtuozzo/OpenVZ Servers Note: Support is not guaranteed for servers running services from 1h.com, ASL, Imunify360 or Bitninja. We only provide support for supported versions of the OS and cPanel. EOL versions are not supported. https://www.configserver.com/cp/osm.html

  11. This is a common problem and may have several reasons. Sometimes when we simply want to restart the MySQL Server, we can get such an error: ERROR! MySQL server PID file could not be found! First of all, always check if the /tmp partition is full. This can happen when MySQL can’t write to the /tmp partition to create a lock file. df -h Also, this may be because, somehow the /tmp partition has been cleared and the MySQL server is looking for the PID file there. So easy-peasy just create a new pid file and restart the server. touch /tmp/mysql.sock service mysqld restart It can also help to check the status, sometimes it helps. For example sometimes you can get an error like this : $ service mysqld status ERROR! MySQL is not running, but lock file (/var/lock/subsys/mysql) exists Well, it’s kind of obvious, just remove the lock file and restart the server. rm /var/lock/subsys/mysql service mysqld restart If this not work then you need to kill current mysql process from server using below steps : ps -aufx | grep mysql You get all process of mysql with process ID. You need to kill all PID for mysql using below command kill -9 PID1 PD2... then restart mysql service service mysql restart That’s it http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=1424779
  12. Hi , To fix this issue , [ vzquota : (error) can't lock quota file, some quota operations are performing for id 101 ] First you need to open your ssh session and run this command: ps ax | grep vzquota Then kill the pid for example : kill -9 1234 And then try to start the vz container vzquota off id vzctl start id After that your openvz container should work fine, Some openvz nodes needs to fix the quota and this need some time depending on your quota size, if your openvz doesn't run after awhile then you need to check the availability of ram inside your openvz to see if there is enough ram or not by running the following command: free -m Have a nice day. https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/134404/hot-to-fix-vzquota-error-cant-lock-quota-file
  13. Now this may be very simple for some, others might not know what to do about database issues- so Ill explain in a quick post. I logged in this morning and noticed my RAM usage was very high, (91% on the resource monitor, compared to normal 71%). I hit Crtl-Shift-Esc and went to processess and my top two memory usage processes were SQL Server. The top one was using 1,540,736 K, with the second around 600 K. That is a lot. Right click on the top one, and select Go To Service. This one is MICROSOFT##SSEE and the second is SBSMONITORING. I know from past experience that SBSMONITORING can get out of control, but in my opinion 600,000 K is not bad. There is a good post on running a script that will clean up and compact the SBSMONITORING database here (Smallbizserver.net- one of my favorite sites, but you will have to find the post yourself). In this instance, I do not really care about SBSMONITORING. But the MICROSOFT##SSEE is really high, and I have never seen that before. Now I am no DBA, but I DO know that limiting a database will affect performance. I also know that if the database was using that much memory, it probably had reason. It could be a memory leak, but I do not think so in this instance, because it is just running all of the default services. Do a Google search on SQL Server memory leaks for more information. So in this case, I do not want to limit the database. Ill restart it and see what happens. Start>Administrative Tools>Services. Right click and restart Windows Internal Database. Voila! it is now hovering around 158,000 K. Thats a lot better than 10x that. And by only restarting it, I did not limit the database should it NEED much more ram, perhaps when it is synchronizing WSUS or something. SQL Process Might as well restart SBSMONITORING as well- yep, that knocked the RAM usage of that one down a few notches, though not as dramatically as the first. So, I want to do this regularly, but I do not want to remember to restart these manually. They get restarted when the server reboots, but I TRY to minimize those as well. We can write it into a VERY simple batch script. Open up Notepad. Enter the following: 1 2 3 4 net stop mssql$sbsmonitoring net start mssql$sbsmonitoring net stop mssql$microsoft##ssee net start mssql$microsoft##ssee Save the file as a text file on the root of some drive, or if you have a folder for scripts. I keep mine in D:\Scripts\. I go to the new text file location, and change the .txt to .bat Now we have a file that when it is run, stops both SQL database services and starts them one at a time. This will not cause system damage, nor damage the databases- as limiting the RAM might have. Let’s give the script a test run to make sure it works: Restart Script Navigate to the file location from a command prompt, and run the batch file. If the results look like this, then you are good. Now we need to automate this script. So, we will use scheduled tasks to enable this script to run once a week. Could be twice a week, but I think running this Monday morning will be nice. Start>Administrative Tools>Task Scheduler. Right click Task Scheduler Library, and click New Task. Give the task a name and description. In my case I named is Restart SQL. Select the radio button to run the task if no one is logged on. General Tab You have the option to run this on any account you wish. If you have an account you use for DBA (or even a power user account), then select this account. On the Triggers tab, we will select on a schedule. I set it to occur Weekly every Monday at 5AM. I know I have no other processes running at that time such as backups. I also put a random delay of 30 minutes on the task- this is not necessary in most cases. Trigger Tab On the Action tab, we will select New. Leave it on run a program. In the box under settings for Program/Script, we will select the script that we made, restart_sql.bat. Action Tab On the Conditions tab, pretty much leave stuff alone. Run if computer is idle for 10 minutes, wait for idle 1 hour. Uncheck stop if the computer ceases to be idle. Uncheck wake the computer to run this task- why would a server be in sleep mode? Conditions Tab On the settings tab, pretty much leave everything alone. It’s all self explanatory if need to change something to suit your needs, then do so. Settings Tab Now, let the task run it’s course. You can check the task scheduler after Monday to see if the task ran- which it will. This will keep my database memory usage down without me having to worry about it or by limiting the natural functions of said databases. https://chrisdill.wordpress.com/2010/10/22/restart_microsoftssee/

    DNS spoofing

    DNS spoofing, also referred to as DNS cache poisoning, is a form of computer security hacking in which corrupt Domain Name System data is introduced into the DNS resolver's cache, causing the name server to return an incorrect result record, e.g. an IP address. This results in traffic being diverted to the attacker's computer (or any other computer). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DNS_spoofing#Cache_poisoning_attacks
