Securty policy - blah ( fall)

When you do security there are no such term as "low risk".

Example - Somebody install phpBB and Linode just got two step attack.

Get out everyone by falser report
Attack old forum - got it.

So, questions are:

  • Linode employes doesn't have notebooks?
  • remote administration in 2014 is something they don't know?
  • Linode don't have any remote administration?
  • Linode operate from ONE office?
  • how about different datacenters? are they affected?

So, again decentralization is good as never!

Fight with empty pages or enable error reporting and debug
