Today I checked again, and to my surprise I got:
For the first time segment (273 days period) I averaged 5.98 IP bans a day. From that day to today I got: 5853-1633 = 4220 new bans. The time period from November 2014 to today is 573 days.
That means in the last year the banning grew to 7.36 bans a day (~20% increase). And we need to remember that this is also with the previous backlist.
So today, beside applauding fail2ban's relentless work, I changed the port of the SSH server.
To my surprise from this morning, until now, there is radio silence from the fail2ban new bans. I guess most scanners don't do a port scanning first, and they just try to find default or weirdly configured SSH servers.
So here's my second tip. Change your SSH server port.
A while back I wrote a small program named fast-live-reload. The point of it was to be able to do things whenever files change (be that refreshing browsers, or executing programs, such as Compass compilation).
Here is another sample on how I use it to try out python snippets really fast:
I basically split my current view in two (using byobu), and I edit in the left view with my trusty vim. Whenever I save, fast-live-reload picks it up and executes the script.
Instant feedback is instant ;-).
Since I already wrote an article on having Docker running with OverlayFS on Ubuntu 14.04, I won't go over all of it again. Here is a not so quick link on why it's cool to have it. Basically it's faster, harder, better, stronger, and scales better.
The only note is that since Ubuntu comes with v4 Kernels, there is no need to install any more packages except docker itself. The commands below must be ran as root.
The first step just installs docker, straight from docker.com.
Awesome. The problem now is that it runs with the aufs driver, so we need to stop docker.
The next step is to create a copy of the current configuration file from the system itself. We will override the configuration from the system by copying it as /etc/systemd/system/docker.service .
Now, we change the ExecStart line by appending the OverlayFS setting:
We now tell systemd that the configuration files have updated, and start docker again:
I am happy to announce the availability of Germanium 1.7.3.
Germanium is an Python API simplifying WebDriver access into very simple commands, making for very readable code:
It's best used for test automation, and is available straight from pip:
Germanium is tested against Python 2.7, Python 3.4 and Python 3.5, and Firefox, Chrome and IE on each release.
Also, it has pretty decent documentation.
Enjoy using it :), and if you have any issues with it, questions, feature requests, etc. please open up an issue on GitHub.
The one to rule them all. The browsers that is.
