Re-compiling MySQL 5.0 with OpenSSL support under Debian

If you’ve ever required OpenSSL support enabled for MySQL Server 5.0 under debian, then you will need to recompile MySQL. Under Debian this is very easy.

If you’ve ever required OpenSSL support enabled for MySQL Server 5.0 under debian, then you will need to recompile MySQL. Under Debian this is very easy.

First you will need to download the package source, as root type the following:


cd /root
mkdir build
cd build
apt-get source mysql-source-5.0

The above commands will create a folder called ‘build’, enter the directory and then download the mysql-server-5.0 package source. The following are the results under an Ubuntu server:


[root@jager:/root/builds]# apt-get source mysql-server-5.0
Reading package lists... Done

Need to get 16.8MB of source archives.

dpkg-source: extracting mysql-dfsg-5.0 in mysql-dfsg-5.0-5.0.38
dpkg-source: unpacking mysql-dfsg-5.0_5.0.38.orig.tar.gz
dpkg-source: applying ./mysql-dfsg-5.0_5.0.38-0ubuntu1.1.diff.gz

If you list the directory contents you should have something like this:


[root@jager:/root/builds]# ls -al
total 16408K
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 2007-10-30 13:08 ./
drwxr-xr-x 15 root root 4096 2007-10-30 13:06 ../
drwxr-xr-x 39 root root 4096 2007-10-30 13:08 mysql-dfsg-5.0-5.0.38/
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 148883 2007-10-10 14:11 mysql-dfsg-5.0_5.0.38-0ubuntu1.1.diff.gz
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1209 2007-10-10 14:11 mysql-dfsg-5.0_5.0.38-0ubuntu1.1.dsc
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 16602385 2007-04-03 05:03 mysql-dfsg-5.0_5.0.38.orig.tar.gz

Before we proceed we need to make sure that we have all of the necessary tools to compile the new packages and create the .deb:


apt-get install devscripts build-essential fakeroot

You will also want to make sure that you have any dependencies that the package would require:


apt-get build-dep mysql-server-5.0

Now that we have everything we need, we just need to make a modification to the file “mysql-dfsg-5.0-5.0.38/debian/rules” with your favorite editor. Search for the following lines within the file:


--without-openssl
--with-yassl

And change the lines to the below:


--with-openssl
--without-yassl

Basically you’re enabling OpenSSL and disabling YaSSL, make sure that you have OpenSSL installed (apt-get install openssl). Once you’ve finished editing the file, save it and exit out of the editor.

You will then want to start the compiling and build of the Debian packages, run the following command within the “mysql-dfsg-5.0-5.0.3” directory like so:


[root@jager:/root/builds/mysql-dfsg-5.0-5.0.3]# debuild -us -uc

Everything should process properly, and you should end up with a handful of .deb packages within “/root/builds”:


[root@jager:/root/builds]# ls -al
total 57628K
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 2007-10-30 14:02 ./

Just run dpkg -i *.deb and all should be good!

Annoyed, hospitalized teen unplugs neighbor’s life support

Annoyed, hospitalized teen unplugs neighbor's life support -

Filed under:

It should probably go without saying that anything connected to a power source within the confines of a hospital has a fair shot at being pertinent to the livelihood of at least one individual, but obviously a 17-year old teenager in Germany needed the memo. After the perpetual noise of what would prove to be his neighbor's life support machine "got on his nerves," he proceeded to simply unplug the device without precaution in order to ensure that "he got his peace and quiet." Of course, we can only assume that the sirens and squeals that were emitted due to his misreckoning were immensely louder than the prior hum, but some folks just love to learn the hard way. Thankfully, medical personnel stepped in and saved the man from perishing, but the teen at fault lost a lot more sleep after that whilst being questioned by police.

Detect insider threats with Linux auditing

Detect insider threats with Linux auditing -

Organizations of all sizes need to mitigate the risk of insider threats. Misconduct by authorized users represents a grave threat to an organization. According to the 2005 Computer Security Institute and Federal Bureau of Investigation Computer Crime and Security Survey, organizations reported that computer intrusions from inside sources accounted for nearly half of all incidents. You can secure your network perimeter with intrusion detection systems, firewalls, and virus scanners, but don't neglect to monitor authorized users. The Linux Audit daemon can help you detect violations of your security policies.

Have Windows 2003 event viewer alerts sent to a network syslog server

I stumbled upon a little application called "evtsys" that was created by some Computer Engineering folks at Purdue University. The program runs on Microsft Windows 2000/2003/Vista 32-bit or 64-bit version and sends eventlog messages to a networked syslog server. You can then have syslog either print out the alert or write to a file.

Thieves rob Best Buy blind

Thieves rob Best Buy blind -

Filed under:


A diabolical ring of super-thieves has been terrorizing the good people of Tulsa, OK., by conducting elaborate burglaries of stores like Best Buy and Office Depot. In their most recent exploit, the robbers cut two holes in the roof of a Best Buy, rappelled into the store, disabled the alarm system, and then stole more than 40 laptops, a number of plasma TVs and the store's safe. A local crime reporter claims they "leave behind no fingerprints, no witnesses and no surveillance tapes". They also reportedly have super-human strength, psionic powers, and can all fly at nearly supersonic speeds.
