GCC extension for protecting from stack-smashing attacks

Post date: April 20, 2005, 10:04 Category: Security Views: 3039 Comments
Tutorial quote: The Stack-Smashing Protector (SSP, formerly ProPolice) is perhaps one of the most sophisticated yet simplistic protective compiler technologies to date which makes use of canary values by rearranging local variables and function pointers. When (ssp) is enabled it can prevent many forms of the common return-to-libc attack. It is implemented as a patch to GCC which will automatically insert protection code into your programs at compile time. It is developed by Hiroaki Etoh at IBM.

Making a DVD from CDs

Post date: December 4, 2005, 16:12 Category: Installing Views: 3532 Comments
Tutorial quote: People have requested to have a single DVD instead of the 5 CD's. The reasons for this are various. I have written a program called makeSUSEdvd that can make the DVD in a very easy manner. First download the CD's. These can be either the NOVELL SUSE CD's or the openSUSE cd's. You do not need to burn them, just put them in one directory with only the 5 CD's in it. You will need the root password. If you do not have that, the program is not good and you should do it by hand.
