Base64 image uploading to Pasteros

Pasteros now has JPEG handling abilities when pastes are uploaded with base64 data (see commit). Convert your image to base64 like this and view it by add .jpg to the end of the paste ! I also wrote a command line utility that uploads a selected screenshot area to Pasteros.

 

Remote code execution with Hitron CGNM-2250 - Part 1

The routers that you receive from your ISP are almost always garbage: not many options to configure and pitiful wifi range. The router/modem that Shaw customers receive is the Hitron CGNM-2250 thankfully isn't completely terrible, 802.11ac plus gigabit ports. I was poking about and researching the model and came upon an exploit for a similar model version for remote code execution.

Makefile update to SnackLinux

The Makefile for SnackLinux has been updated, I made it a bit easier to build SnackLinux from scratch. I'd like to update GCC to at least 5.x something, and add a few more packages to SnackLinux. Eventually, adding a PKGBUILD-like system to fbpkg would be preferable. Right now, it's just a bunch of instructions on the snacklinux.com.

SnackLinux update

SnackLinux now has a whopping 31 packages, which include a (somewhat) working gcc toolchain and other fun GNU utilities (vitetris included!). I was able to add Docker support as well, which is just tarballed userland. Getting a working gcc toolchain was a bit of a pain in the butt.

Tags to Pasteros.io

Tags have been added to Pasteros.io, so now pastes can be "grouped" together, making it a bit easier to manage. For example, see https://pasteros.io/tag/snacklinux. A delete URL is still on my todo list, but that shouldn't be too difficult to implement.

Pasteros.io is live!

My text storage platform project, pasteros.io is finally live! It's also on Github: https://github.com/snacsnoc/pasteros

Setup Nagios 3 with lighttpd on your VPS

There are countless tools and software stacks out there to monitor your servers out, though some are not the easiest to setup. I went with Nagios since it's straightforward to configure and easy to setup. For reference, I used Nagios 4.0.8 on Debian 7 using Debian 7 slaves. The Nagios master node already had lighttpd and PHP set up so I'll gloss over that.

Master node

Start by downloading Nagios and Nagios plugins:

 

Nimrod language

 I have recently discovered the Nimrod programming language. I usually don't branch out on languages because, well, stuff you don't know can be scary. I'm surprised how easy it is to get going though, it reminds me quite a bit of Python. I put up a test project on Github that fetches the weather for a given location.

SnackLinux evolution

 SnackLinux finally has a domain, snacklinux.org! The source is still on Github and all the ISO images have moved as well.

Building a distro that almost works

 For the most part, SnackLinux works. I've been having problems with Busybox, so I've made packages for coreutils, binutils, sed, grep and gawk. When compiling anything, I get:

segfault at 0 ip    (null) sp bfdb1cbc error 4 in busybox[8048000+e8000]
