Note: Since Jenkins is a java application running with limited system permission, it’s socket listeners can’t listen on ports below 1024. So if you want to run Jenkins with HTTPS enabled on the default HTTPS-port 443, you need some work around.

TR-069 Angriff: FritzBox teilweise DOCH betroffen
Laut AVM wären die aktuellen FritzBox Modelle vom kürzlich stattgefundenen TR-069 Angriff nicht betroffen. Dies scheint aber wohl nur dann zu stimmen, wenn der jeweilige Anbieter das Profil auch entsprechend abgesichert hat. Mein Anschluss (KielNET/Versatel, FritzBox 7390) zeigte am 02.12.2016 nachmittags aber die gleichen Symptome wie die wenige Tage vorher betroffenen Telekom-Kunden: Die Verbindung hielt… Continue reading TR-069 Angriff: FritzBox teilweise DOCH betroffen

Remove obsolete *.log-files from openLDAP DB-folder
If you use the openLDAP-server you will probably run into the problem that the *.log-files located in the DB’s folder will comsume more and more free space. It seems that the automatic maintenance service that should clean up no longer used log-files is somehow broken. Luckly there is a command that removes any log-files that… Continue reading Remove obsolete *.log-files from openLDAP DB-folder
