jelknerreplaceafill usually responds with pong, louisea.  That's our custom ;-)12:00
jelkneri just wanted to check with him on the automatic email we got from linode about national hospital12:01
louiseahaha, i don't think I knew that. but it's not terribly clever so I can see why we arrived at it independently12:01
replaceafillACTION is back12:13
replaceafillhello jelkner12:13
replaceafilljelkner, i think you should ask either Marco or zOnny about that server12:14

jelknerreplaceafill, mjsir911 has taken a look at it12:18
jelknerbut this is going to be a problem for us12:18
jelkner(where is matva01 when you need him ;-)12:18
jelknerwe don't have anyone who understands network security well12:18
replaceafilljelkner, what's the problem?12:18
replaceafilljelkner, what do you need to understand?12:19
jelknerit looks like the site was under attack12:19
jelkneri just need to know if it is safe to ignore it12:19
jelkneror if we need to do something12:19
jelknermatt always tells me stories about what he does at work12:20
replaceafilljelkner, well if linode hasn't contacted you yet12:20
jelknerthe system sent that email12:20
replaceafilljelkner, i mean, when they detect a ddos they take charge of your ip12:21
replaceafilljelkner, to prevent other hosts to be blocked12:21
jelknergot it12:21
replaceafilljelkner, and as of security i've started to setup fail2ban in the production servers i set up12:24
replaceafilljelkner, fail2ban has a module that may help in this case12:24
replaceafilljelkner, if i remember correctly12:25
replaceafilljelkner, mjsir911 i'm not security expert but i'd recommend this:
replaceafilljelkner, mjsir911 fail2ban is good enough imho12:26
replaceafillsome day our fail2ban role ( will be smart enough to do all of this12:26
mjsir911I use fail2ban personally so I would be able to set that up a bit easier12:27
mjsir911looking at the apache logs though, I'm not seeing much traffic12:27
mjsir911But I can investigate further later12:27
replaceafillmjsir911, you should share what you learn somehow12:28
mjsir911yea, I'll make a google doc then?12:28
replaceafillmjsir911, that works12:28
replaceafillmjsir911, i read them :)12:28
