ZFS Adds Exciting Twist to Mundane World

when OpenSolaris was released it seemed like a nice thing for all those Solaris admins who wanted a shiny new free version to play with, but not so relevant to folks with actual work to do. Zettabyte filesystem, however, changed the landscape.

Officially it's just ZFS now, not Zettabyte. But zettabyte is more fun to say. At any rate, ZFS is very impressive and represents a huge leap past other filesystems on the market. You know, all those filesystem utilities you've been relying on all these years? All that fsck, dump, restore, mkfs, tunefs, and their Ext3/JFS/XFS/ReiserFS/UFS counterparts; volume managers like EVM and LVM; raidtools; rysnc; quota; fdisk, and all the rest of the baggage you've been forced to lug around just to coax filesystems into a semblance of usefulness - using ZFS means you can dump them all. ZFS was written from the ground up to meet modern needs.

Published data reveals that, when identity thieves want Social Security numbers, they head for the fountainhead: Government. No other entity is as efficient at losing SSNs. The preferred method of acquisition? Unattended laptops. When that fails, crooks fall back to tapes, printouts, web postings, inside theft and other tricks wholly dependent on bureaucratic incompetence. After all, cracking networks from the outside can be tricky.

Tip of the Trade: Sendmail's Greet_Pause

  • Story Type: Tutorial
Slamming is a popular spammer tactic in which the spammer quickly fires off SMTP messages without waiting for responses from the receiving server. A poorly behaved MTA will then accept traffic from the spammer, instead of rejecting it as it should. But even well-behaved MTAs are affected because of the sheer volume of traffic with which they are forced to deal. The venerable sendmail, as of version 8.13, has a nifty feature called "greet_pause" that not only rejects incorrect SMTP transactions, but also discourages re-sends.
