Here are the best plants to keep away flies and mosquitoes:

Catnip
It’s irresistible for cats, but a fearsome weapon in the fight against mosquitoes and flies. This plant also known as catmint induces a state of bliss to cats, difficult to explain by scientists and works as a good repellent. It’s proved to be 10 times more effective keeping mosquitoes away than chemical solutions.

Lemon thyme is able to keep away 62% of mosquitoes. The percentage is the result of studies conducted by specialists from the University of Ontario who used to prepare organic plant repellent products.

Lavender is known for its ability to ward off flies and mosquitoes and they are beautiful and decorative plants perfect for window boxes, pots on patios or gardens. Lavender not only keep away flies and mosquitoes but also many other nasty insects.

Basil and marigold, reliable friends
Basil is the kind of plant that should be on any patio and in any yard. Besides its flavor and a great spice for food is an enemy to be feared for flies. It’s very good against mosquitoes, too. Basil’s flavor is very tonic.

Licorice is not only a beautiful plant and decorative, but also a natural solution against flies and mosquitoes. Licorice can grow for a meter and a half tall and is perfect to protect against insects. Plant licorice in the yard and gather licorice branches in a bundle and place it in the place where you sit the most.

Marigolds are plants with medicinal effects but more than that, marigolds not only keep away obnoxious pests (Colorado cockroach) they also keep away flies and mosquitoes.

Rosemary is the worst enemy against flies. Around him you won’t find any fly. Keep a bunch of rosemary in the house, and the place will be protected from flies. Change twigs after a few days like the anti-fly effect to persist. Also, it’s very effective rosemary natural oil. Put a few drops in water and spray around the house and for 24 hours flies won’t bother you.

Garlic
Green garlic leaves, planted in the garden will keep away mosquitoes because they hate the smell of garlic.

Bonus tips! Plants aren’t the only barrier against flies and mosquitoes attack. All foods rich in vitamin B have the effect of removing flies and mosquitoes. Banana peel quickly soothes itching, as well as apple cider vinegar.




easycounter.com – is a fraudulent website owned by the Russians!

easycounter.com – is a fraudulent website owned by the Russians! Overwhelm them with these domains now available for sale – easycounter.co, easycounter.info, easycounter.org, easycounter.us

Scammers use websites to defraud people in a variety of ways. For example, they may sell people goods and services which are never delivered. Or they may collect personal or financial information in order to commit identity theft. All internet-related crime should be reported to the appropriate authorities to investigate so that more people do not become victims.

Report the Fraud

Image titled Report a Fraud Website Step 1
Understand internet crime. Internet crime is any illegal activity that involves the internet, such as websites, chat rooms, or email. Internet crime entails using the internet to make false or fraudulent representations to consumers.[1]

  • Common examples of internet fraud include employment/business opportunity schemes that are fraudulent and the non-delivery of goods or services that you have paid for.
Image titled Report a Fraud Website Step 2
Note the website’s address. To successfully report a website for fraud, you will need to know the website’s URL.[2] Write it down or, if you are at the website, copy and paste the URL into a blank word processing document.

  • The URL is the internet address. You can find it by looking in the address bar.
Image titled Report a Fraud Website Step 3
Document the fraud. You should write down as much information as possible about the website or any transaction you had with the website. For example, you should document as best you can the following:[3][4]

  • the dates you communicated with the company
  • any phone number listed on the website
  • a description of what services or goods the company was offering
  • the amount charged by the website and the amount you paid
  • your method of payment
  • a short description of what happened
Image titled Report a Fraud Website Step 4
Protect yourself. If you think that you have accidentally given out identifying or financial information, then you should take actions to protect yourself. This information includes your Social Security Number, date of birth, bank account information, or credit card numbers.

  • If your Social Security Number was exposed or stolen, then you should get a free annual credit report from annualcreditreport.com and check to see if any new accounts have been opened under your name. Because scammers can try to open credit card accounts with your Social Security Number, you might want to request a credit freeze.
    • A credit freeze restricts access to your credit report. Because most creditors want to see your credit report before opening a new account, the freeze can prevent scammers from obtaining credit in your name.[6]
    • To request a freeze, you should contact each of the three national credit reporting companies: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. You will have to pay a fee, which can range from $5 to $10.[7]
  • If your debit or credit card number was stolen, then contact your bank or credit card company and cancel your card. You can then request a new one. Alternately, you could simply monitor your statements regularly and report any suspected fraud to the credit card company.[8]
  • If your bank account information was stolen, then you can contact your bank to close the account and then open a new one. If you don’t want to close the account, then you should regularly monitor your bank statements.[9]



Bomb threat spam may stem from GoDaddy DNS weakness

Bomb threat spam may stem from GoDaddy DNS weakness

A bomb threat spam campaign that hit North America last month may have been engineered using a flaw in GoDaddy’s domain management process, it was revealed this week.

The campaign saw attackers send out spam emails warning recipients that their places of work would be bombed unless they sent payments in bitcoin. Investigators linked its unknown perpetrator to a separate sextortion attack which falsely claimed to have compromising webcam images of victims and demanded blackmail payments in bitcoin.

Both of these spam campaigns came from domains hosted by Russian hosting company Reg.ru, but anti-spam researcher Ron Guilmette reportedly found that most of the domains used in the bomb threat campaign had been transferred from US hosting giant GoDaddy shortly before the attack began. Ars Technica suggests that the domains were hijacked using an attack technique that first surfaced in 2016.

DNS is short for Domain Name Service, and it’s effectively a phone book for the web. It’s the internet’s way of converting a URL such as www.example.com to the IP address for the computer that hosts its web pages.

Your computer finds a domain’s IP address by querying a name server that stores that information in a text record known as a zone file. Your computer knows what name server to query because the name server addresses are stored in top level domain (TLD) servers dotted around the internet. These TLD servers get the name server addresses from the registrar that originally registered the domain.

Hosting companies that offer managed DNS services update all of this information for you. You tell them which domain you want to control, and they provide the appropriate name server information. The problem is that many managed DNS services allow people to add domains to their accounts without checking to see if those people own the domains first.

Cybersecurity researcher Matthew Bryant first discovered this flaw in the domain setup process for hosting company Digital Ocean in 2016 before realising that it was a much wider problem affecting companies ranging from Amazon to Rackspace.

The problem occurs when the zone file for a domain disappears but the domain’s owner doesn’t update the name server information held by the registrar. This can happen because the domain’s owner doesn’t want to host a web site at the domain anymore, or because payments for the domain hosting lapse. Occasionally, as was the case with the hijacked domain virtualfirefox.com, the owner gains legitimate ownership of the domain to avoid someone cybersquatting it but doesn’t need to host anything at that domain.

This leaves a name server with no zone file, meaning that an attacker can populate it with their own. They can register a free account with the managed DNS/hosting company and ask for that domain to be included in their account. That lets them transfer the domain to their own hosting provider. As Bryant found, many managed DNS companies honour that request without first checking to see if someone else owns the domain.

This is a great attack vector for spammers, explained Bryant in his 2016 post, because it gives them legitimacy. Anti-spam software will often block mail from newly-registered domains or from domains with bad reputations, which makes it hard for spammers to deliver their mail. Using this attack, they can use email servers registered to the hijacked domains to send spam emails that originate from their own servers. The domains that they hijack will often have been registered for a long time and have good reputations, which makes it far more likely that their spam mail will get through.

Bryant said:

If an attacker launches a malware campaign using these domains, it will be harder to pinpoint who/what is carrying out the attack since the domains would all appear to be just regular domains with no observable pattern other than the fact that they all use cloud DNS. It’s an attacker’s dream, troublesome attribution and an endless number of names to use for malicious campaigns.

This is what appears to have happened with the bomb threat spam sent last month, and with the sextortion campaign mentioned earlier. Guilmette’s research reportedly foundthat overall, GoDaddy left more than half a million domains vulnerable to hijacking.

The attackers appear to have cherrypicked sites owned by household names including Expedia, Mozilla and Yelp.

GoDaddy told Naked Security that it was fixing the problem associated with the hijacked domain names:

We have indeed made the fix to prevent malicious use of our DNS zone entries. Due to the sensitive nature of security, we are not disclosing exactly how we fixed it. Additionally, we are currently removing the domains names mentioned by the security researcher.

To prevent their sites being hijacked this way, though, the safest bet for domain owners is to ensure that they update their name server information when removing a zone file so that attackers can’t take control of their domain.

THE BEST OPERATING SYSTEMS

09.11.18
Michael Isberto
Operating System News
 
 
For computer users, there is a long-lived debate over which operating system is the best: Windows or Mac OS, but in the server world, the debate adds a third competitor, Linux.
Windows is an OS that most people know because it usually comes installed on pre-assembled computers. Linux, on the other hand, is a free OS that allows you to modify your OS to your liking. Within the Linux system, there are many distributions or distros (as it is commonly known) that one can choose from. A distro is an OS based on the Linux kernel. Some of these distros are Red Hat, Ubuntu, Fedora, Kubuntu, Arch Linux, Deepin, and Mageia just to name a few.
These operating systems can give you the freedom to modify the OS in many ways, but the learning curve can be very high. This article will focus more on answering the specific question—Which server OS is best for you?

What’s the Difference between a Server OS and Everyday OS?

Understanding the difference between a server OS and an everyday OS is crucial. There are very specific differences between a server OS and an everyday OS. An everyday OS runs programs including Microsoft word and excel, Adobe Photoshop, and one’s favorite computer games. There are also applications that make browsing the web and checking email easy. It also uses connections such as LAN and Bluetooth. Every day operating systems are also cheaper than a server OS.
Aside from being more expensive, a server OS platform typically has unlimited user connections, a greater amount of memory, and can act as a web server, database server, and email server. It is also optimized for a network instead of for a single user, which means a server OS can handle multiple desktops. A dedicated server that is built to a company’s specification and needs is what recommended. This ensures support, management, and the lack of downtime.


When it comes to an OS for everyday personal use—I believe that a Windows OS or a Mac OS is a great choice, especially if you’re doing simple tasks and don’t need much customization. It’s easy to use which makes it perfect for everyday use. For gaming, Windows OS is better than Mac. Games are usually optimized for Windows and their hardware.

 

What OS Is Best for a Home Server and Personal Use?

But when it comes to a home server—Windows and a Linux are probably the options you will need to decide between. In simple terms, a home server is a setup of two or more computers that make-up a local area network within a home. One personal computer can serve as a home server if it has enough storage and memory. Home servers are often used to share multimedia content between all devices. If you want to be able to access all of your movies, photos, etc. from all of your devices, a home server is a good idea.
Within Linux based servers—there are many different distros to choose from when looking for an OS for a server. We will highlight some of the best servers to help you decide which is best for you.

 

Ubuntu
We will start this list with maybe the most well known Linux operating system there is—Ubuntu. If you’re new to Linux, this could be the choice for you. While Ubuntu is not specifically a “server distro”, and while you still need to install server software on your own—many people still use it as such because of its user-friendliness. Ubuntu does make a server-specific version called Ubuntu Server (easy enough). This is a great choice for personal use and is perfect for those who are new to Linux based systems because of its user-friendliness.
Debian
Along with Ubuntu, Debian server is also one of the oldest Linux distros available. Like most distros, Debian is community-based and ships with free software and drivers. There are only a few distros that are not free. The Debian warehouses have thousands of applications and are available for many different hardware devices. One downfall to Debian is the ease (or lack thereof) of installation. It’s one of the harder distros to install if you’re unfamiliar with Linux, and there are a number of steps you need to go through after you install the system to get the hardware working properly. Debian can be used as a server or general OS.
Fedora
A newer and interesting OS within Linux is Fedora. Based on and supported by Red Hat, Fedora Linux Server is another community distro. Fedora was designed to be on the cutting edge and always comes with the newest software and drivers. Fedora is also one of the easier distros to install and use. One could also have a Fedora Dedicated server, which has many benefits including high speeds, 3D graphics support, and automatic updates. Fedora would be good to use for a beginner or intermediate level of knowledge in a Linux system. Because it is always trying to be on the cutting edge, one of the downfalls of Fedora is it could be volatile and unreliable because not all packages are stable.

 

What OS Is Better for a Business Server?

There are hundreds of Linux based distros currently available. But if you are looking for an OS that is suited for server use there are a couple of standouts. All of these server operating systems offer increased security, and fast cloud-ready tools, which make it ideal for a business server.
Microsoft Windows Server
We’ve been discussing different Linux based options, but Microsoft still has one of the best server operating systems for business and personal server use as well. Microsoft Windows Server is developed from Windows 10 OS and is purposely designed to offer everything one needs to build a server. Like many Microsoft applications—it is easy to install and is available through the Microsoft official store. Microsoft Windows Server is also a cloud-ready OS, which makes it user-friendlier than most Linux based systems. Although it may be more user-friendly than a Linux based system, there may still be a learning curve when it comes to Windows Server edition. Many people are already familiar with Windows but may not be familiar with Windows Server.
Ubuntu Server
Just like Ubuntu OS, Ubuntu server is user-friendly. It also has many of the same benefits. It is secure, fast, and cost-effectively upgradable. It also supports most popular hardware and software that are available. Because of Ubuntu’s reputation—Ubuntu Server is also a trusted option when it comes to business and server use. Using an Ubuntu OS with an Ubuntu dedicated server enables the server allows more customization than a commercial-based operating system.
CentOS Server
Another well-known community distro is CentOS. Just like Fedora, it is based on Red Hat, but unlike Fedora—it is built more for the same audience as openSUSE. Because it uses the same installer as Fedora, it is easy to install and there is a fairly good selection of applications. Like many distros, CentOS is free and is a community enterprise with a group of contributors and users working on developing new applications and projects.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server
Red Hat Enterprise Linux is one of the world’s leading software companies based in America and is a well-known and widely used Linux distribution OS. It provides open source software solutions and products to many different industries around the world. Specifically designed for businesses, RHEL can also work on servers or desktops. Redhat and Fedora are two of the most used Linux distros in the world.
Unix Server
The Unix server OS is the reason we have Linux, but Unix is still a central part of the server industry. Having a Unix Dedicated server is advantageous for e-commerce businesses. Having a Unix server OS and a Unix Dedicated Server is reliable and secure. Unix can be used as a multitasking OS, time-sharing OS for multiple users, file and password encryption, and more. Just like Linux, the system is a customization to the user specifications.

What’s the Best OS for a Small, Medium, and Large Business?

By now, you probably realize the extent of how many OS choices you have. There are nearly 300 different operating systems to choose from. We highlighted some of the best operating systems for personal use and for business use, but now we are going to break it down even further. Because there are so many to choose from—it may all come down to preference, but we have decided on the best operating systems for small, medium, and large businesses.
Small Business
Microsoft Small Business Server is a great option for a small business. It is a combined server suite that is perfect for companies that have fewer than 75 users. This system is tightly integrated to allow small businesses easy and better connectivity. Microsoft Small Business Server includes tools like e-mail, internal websites, remote access, support for mobile devices, file and printer sharing, backup, restore, and more.
Medium Businesses
For medium-sized businesses, Ubuntu OS and Ubuntu Server are great options. It’s free, easy to install, and the name is a trusted name when it comes to operating systems. Because it is open-source, it can be customized and easily tailored to fit your business needs. The development community is always working on new ways to improve the system and is helpful when users have questions regarding any problems or concerns. Ubuntu can work for both small and medium-sized businesses, but because of its scalability, it is a great choice regardless.
Large Business
For larger businesses, I believe that a Windows 10 OS is still the way to go. It is still the popular choice for many businesses. Not all software is compatible with Linux operating systems, which makes it difficult to use at times. Most people are familiar with Windows so there is no issue trying to learn a new system. It’s also easier to set up compared to some Linux based distros. Not all computer hardware will work with the latest software, but using a Microsoft OS may make it easier for compatibility.
Windows 10 also offers different operating systems depending on your needs. Windows 10 Enterprise E3 is designed for larger businesses and offers privacy and security across all devices. Windows 10 Enterprise E5 is the newest OS and is designed for companies that need advanced threat protection.

Conclusion—what’s the Best OS for You?

There are many options to choose from when deciding on an OS. At the end of the day, it comes down to what your needs are. When putting together an office system or a business server, you probably won’t go for Mac OS. If you are looking for a home server for personal use there are a couple different options to choose from. Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, and OpenSuse are all great choices. When it comes to an OS for your business, Microsoft Windows Server, Ubuntu Server, CentOS Server, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server are all fantastic choices to consider. Microsoft Small Business Server is a great option for smaller companies with less than 75 users.
For medium-sized businesses, because of its scalability, Ubuntu servers—Ubuntu OS and Ubuntu Server are great. For large businesses, because most people are familiar with the system, Windows 10 OS is still a great choice. Choosing an OS can be hard, but once you’ve made your decision, whether you are looking for a Linux dedicated server or a dedicated Windows server we have plans that are suitable for you.




How to enable HSTS on your server

How to enable HSTS on Apache, NGINX and Lighttpd

First we will understand What is HSTS Technology?

HSTS (HTTP Strict Transport Security) is an advanced security mechanism which was developed by IEFT and intended to secure the website and users against the cookie hijacking and protocol downgrade attacks. The main function of the HSTS policy is the web browser will only communicate with the server using secured HTTPS connection but not with the HTTP connection.

As per the HSTS policy, the browser should only access the server with the secured channel.

Let’s see the practical examples of HSTS Policy

A user enters HTTP version of a domain if HSTS is enabled the browser will load the HTTPS version of the website.

Check the image for more information.

 

How to enable HSTS in Apache2

To enable the HSTS in Apache2, you need to update the configuration file by adding the following line of code in VirtualHost section.

You can find the Apache configuration file here, (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/website.conf)

# Optionally load the headers module:

LoadModule headers_module modules/mod_headers.so

<VirtualHost 67.89.123.45:443>

Header always set Strict-Transport-Security “max-age=63072000; includeSubdomains;”

</VirtualHost>

As per the above line of code, when a user visits your website, the above header will load first and the expiration time is 2 years (63072000 in seconds).

Now to redirect your http website visitors into https version add following line of code in Virtual Host.

<VirtualHost *:80>

[…]

ServerName example.com

Redirect permanent / https://example.com/

</VirtualHost>

Modrewrite is also another option to divers users into https version, here is the line of code you need to add in your VirtualHost section.

<VirtualHost *:80>

[…]

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off

RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}

</IfModule>

</VirtualHost>

Save the config file and restart your Apache server, the HSTS will be active.

How to enable HSTS in NGINX

To enable the HSTS in NGINX, update the following line of code in config file’s server Block.

add_header Strict-Transport-Security “max-age=63072000; includeSubdomains; “;

Restart the NGINX server.

How to enable HSTS in Lighttpd

To enable HSTS in Lighttpd, update the following line of code in the configuration (.conf) file.

server.modules += ( “mod_setenv” )

$HTTP[“scheme”] == “https” {

setenv.add-response-header = ( “Strict-Transport-Security” => “max-age=63072000; includeSubdomains; “)

}

Restart the Lighttpd server.

Change Remote Desktop RDP Port

Port 3389 is the home of the remote desktop protocol that powers Remote Desktop Services on all modern versions of Windows.  If your system has Remote Desktop enabled, it is listening for connections on port 3389.  Since this port is both well known and can be used to attack accounts, it is low hanging fruit for script kiddies and bots looking for an easy target.

Theoretically on a system that does not have an account lockout policy in place, which by the way is not a system default, the RDP protocol can be used to get the administrator password with brute force.  Brute force is a fancy way of saying trying all possible passwords.  If the system never locks out the account then time is the only barrier to eventually getting you password and logging in. 

The first defense is to implement a good account lockout policy but that does not solve the entire problem.  Any administrator of a public facing Windows web server will notice that their server is continiously attacked by bots looking for an easy target.  The bots will often lock out your accounts which can be very annoying.

To protect your system from the bots and script kiddies I always reccomend changing the default RDP port.  This will not fool an intelligent attacker but it will weed out the noise.

Follow these steps to change the Remote Desktop server port:

  1. Open up Registry Editor by clicking on the Start Button, type in regedit and then hit Enter.
  2. In Registry Editor, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, SYSTEM, CurrentControlSet, Control, Terminal Server, WinStations and RDP-Tcp. 
  3. Right click on the PortNumber dword and select Modify. 
  4. Change the base to Decimal and enter a new port between 1025 and 65535 that is not already in use.
  5. Click OK and reboot.

Make sure to reboot to activate the change.

Keep in mind that the next time you want to connect to your system with RDP you will need to provide the port number.  You can do that from the Remote Desktop client by appending a colon after the host name or ip address followed by the port number.  For example, if I have a computer with host name of tweak with RDP running on port 1234 I would use tweak:1234 in the remote desktop client hostname field.
