14 May 2019, 21:21 UTCThe next worm for older Microsoft OS's?

Might want to patch your older systems (2008 and down):

As usual - short description here for when that page goes away:

Short bit from the page above on 5/14/2019:

Prevent a worm by updating Remote Desktop Services (CVE-2019-0708)

Today Microsoft released fixes for a critical Remote Code Execution vulnerability, CVE-2019-0708, in Remote Desktop Services – 
formerly known as Terminal Services – that affects some older versions of Windows. The Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) itself is not vulnerable.
This vulnerability is pre-authentication and requires no user interaction. In other words, the vulnerability is ‘wormable’, meaning that any future
malware that exploits this vulnerability could propagate from vulnerable computer to vulnerable computer in a similar way
as the WannaCry malware spread across the globe in 2017. While we have observed no exploitation of this vulnerability,
it is highly likely that malicious actors will write an exploit for this vulnerability and incorporate it into their malware.

Get ready for Oracle round 3.
MySQL AB was founded in 1994.
In 2010 - Oracle buys MySQL... Ney, they bought Sun Microsystems in 1995. in 2008 Sun Microsystems purchased MySQL AB. In 2010 Oracle bought Sun Microsystems.
Hmmmmm. So this will end well based on...
StarOffice / LibraOffice ... Java / Blackdown / OpenJDK...
I don't think going with Oracle will end it well based on dabbling in GPL / Open Source.
But I am old, and don't know about such things. Commercial interests always improve a large GPL project...
You be the judge.

Ask the person for the definition.
Ask for references (i.e. how you can learn more about the subject..._
if you follow the steps, you should now know about the barrier._
You now can engage in further steps to break down barriers.

So, "learning" the Magento API, and don't want to look up on the page every time...

How to get the admin url:
- find where the magento script lives (usually bin/magento)...
php ./magento info:adminuri
(make sure to use the correct version of php for the install....)
Admin URI: /admin_123456a8a8a (something like that) and tack it on...

How to get the installed modules list:
php ./magento module:status
(does not give versions for some reason - super handy!)
List of enabled modules:
List of disabled modules:

To get the module version (this depends on the version of Magento):
Magento 1.x - might find some info in:

Or 1.x might have a table named core_resource.  - Good luck!

Magento 2.x - might have a table named setup_module with some good info.


3 April 2019, 20:31 UTCnetplan with a plan (dhcp and alt dns servers):

Need to add dns servers to netplan?
Start with the default dhcp setup, and neuter it:
- create /etc/cloud/cloud.cfg.d/99-disable-network-config.cfg
- add just this to it: network: {config: disabled}
- take the default netplan.yaml in /etc/netplan, and add:

            addresses: []
            dhcp4: true
    version: 2

And change to add (indents matter!):
            addresses: []
            dhcp4: true
              addresses: [,]
    version: 2

Give it a go with:
netplan try
