I can’t tell you guys how important it is to be vigilant over the next few months, you will be distracted with holiday events and other social engagements.
If not already, you will be bombarded with scam phone calls and emails. Please! DO. NOT. RESPOND. to those emails and phone calls. Mark them as SPAM and/or phishing and delete them.
The most recent examples relating to phone calls are for people looking to get your social security number, Medicaid, and credit card information. It will be a foreign sounding individual with a “normal” sounding name, like “Robin” or “John” – Hang up on that person immediately!
The most recent examples relating to scam emails is someone “responding” to an email and BCC’ing you with a “what’s this” or “what is this” and below will be an invoice looking for payment. Mark as SPAM and DELETE THIS EMAIL!!!
There will be variations of this theme, but it is all the same, they want your money and your personal information so that they can trick other individuals to give them their money!
IF you use a password manager like LastPass, I strongly urge you to change all your passwords and keep them in either a different password manager or in a notebook in a safe place in your home.
Hacking is serious business, with serious consequences for those not careful to avoid from being hacked.
It is up to everyone here to keep your organization safe.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade -y
sudo apt-get install snmpd -y
sudo apt-get install snmp -y
sudo nano /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf
To get it running, you will need to modify the sudo nano /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf file:
First, I commented out this line:
and below the line ‘#agentAddress udp:161,udp6:[::1]:161′ I added:
Open your favorite (Putty) ssh application and connect to your ESX host and then run the following commands:
esxcli system snmp set –communities public esxcli system snmp set –enable true esxcli network firewall ruleset set –ruleset-id snmp –allowed-all true esxcli network firewall ruleset set –ruleset-id snmp –enabled true /etc/init.d/snmpd restart
The –ruleset should be a dash dash not a bar, same with the –allowed and –enabled; I don’t know why WordPress does that.
Scavenging is a feature that will remove expired records based on their time stamps. Scavenging is not enabled by default. Scavenging will NOT remove statically configured records, the ones you manually create unless you run dnscmd /AgeAllRecords, which will stamp them making them eligible for scavenging (more below on this). Without running this command, DNS will scavenge dynamically updated records that have reached their time stamp. To look at the time stamps of a record using Windows 2003 DNS, put the DNS console “view” in the menu to Advanced View, then look at the individual record properties, and you will see the time stamp. If using Windows 2008 or or newer, it will show up in the console as a separate column.
