I did some more work on auditing code last night, and today.
I found several bugs but nothing exploitable.
Mostly I've been waiting for Sarge to be released before doing this for real, but since I've been reading the security team mail and being frustrated that I can't seem to actually do anything I started again.
I'll look over some more code tonight and post a couple of bug reports - mostly trivial unbounded copies that cause crashs. (A couple of "popen" bugs too).
I also released another version of debian-updates, a program which sends email if a machine is missing a security update. It's nothing major, just a couple of patches and minor updates.
I'm suprised people bother subscribing to the freshmeat project when there's an Debian repository where it can be updated from... and there's still the suprise the people will subscribe to a project without taking the time to rate it. *shrugs*
I configured a new virtual host yesterday in exchange for a couple of hundred pounds of stock, and a collection of DVDs.
I'm amused that I'll be getting stock thingys even though I have no expectation there will be a payoff, it's kinda free money and doing the work in exchange for my usual fee of DVDs is rewarding enough.
Simple stuff; take a pristine installation, make e-mail work, remove cruft, install monitoring software and the Darwin Streaming Server.
I think this makes the fourth or the fifth server setup I've done in exchange for films, it's making my DVD collection pretty impressive!
In terms of physical size the James Bond boxset, and the
Inspector Morse box set take up the most room. I'm wondering if people really prefer the obvious large collections? It's suprising how much different packaging can reduce the physical size of a collection of discs.
20 discs in the Bond box set take up maybe three times the total room required to hold Buffy series 1-7. (I've not counted but we can assume 5+ discs per series).
