#uk #tier5 #lockdown #mondaythoughts.
The amount of companies in #London that suffer #CyberAttack|s is unprecedented.
#hackers were preparing for months. #scoping, network exploration, #SocialEngineering was employed months. #zoommeetings and #email led to bad communication.
#IT/#redteam/#BlueTeam|s etc are not in proper collaboration. People do not know what to do and what are their roles or which tools they need to use.
So far the #Ransomware demands are crazy and the worse is the #databreach leading to #intellectualproperty theft.
Due to #COVID19 #MutantStrain and #londonexodus, working from home has been intensified but lessons from the previous #lockdown on #secure access failures were not learned. #infosec community is still trying to survive.
People have no funds to invest in #cloud infrastructure.

#infosec #cybersecurity #sysadmin
Citing unnamed sources, media said the latest cyberattacks against #FireEye and U.S. government agencies were the work of Russian state-sponsored #APT29 or Cozy Bear #hacking group.

{Updated} Learn how to configure or control outgoing address when using Postfix MTA with ISP smarthost or AWS SES on your Linux or Unix server… #sysadmin
This post was originally published in 2006. I update older pages/tutorials for updated material. It is a cumbersome process and will keep doing as long as working as a sysadmin. After that, someone else will take over. Image
You can even say I was original StackOverflow for the Linux and Unix-like system ;) LOL.

So you want to get into Cyber Security? I’ll tell you how
Cyber security is about protecting data, networks and devices from unauthorised access
Most people are currently working remotely.

This increases the risk of security incidences as companies' data is now accessible over home networks with little or no security add ons

A little late here’s my first tech thread.

A few tools I use that may help my fellow Windows Admins & Engineers.

Some you may know and some you may not.

1. IAS Viewer Log Viewer by Deep Software

Helps with monitoring radius/NPS logs. Makes reading those radius logs ALOT easier to troubleshoot issues.

Saved me more than a couple times dealing with wifi authentication issues.
2. TreeSize by Jam-Software

Scans disk space and makes it easy to find what folders or files are consuming too much space.

I use this on a weekly basis. Finding overgrown logs or users storing large video files became a lot easier.

.@stahnma talking about legacy software… (1/n)
TIL there's a term called as Newton’s Third Law of #sysadmin, which says “a system untouched will remain online.” Where he elaborates that this isn't true after a point. (2/n)
