How to stop Logstash from auto-starting on boot -
If you have installed Logstash from the deb package like me, you will notice that both logstash (agent) and logstash-web start themselves on boot under the logstash user. The usual removal/disabling via update-rc.d doesn’t work in this case. To stop both of them from auto-starting you’ll have to edit the files located at: /etc/init/logstash.conf and /etc/logstash/logstash-web.conf. … Continue reading » The post How to stop Logstash from auto-starting on boot appeared first on BruteForce Lab's Blog. - Hacker News

Robust Security Intelligence: How Different Security Infrastructures Measure Up -
What constitutes good security infrastructure? Ask a member of a security vendor's sales team, and he might hand you an order book with all the boxes checked. Ask a consultant, and her solution might focus on an extended hand-holding engagement. Ask a member of a country's cybersecurity emergency response team (CERT), and he will talk about national infrastructure and public-private partnerships. The reality is that good infrastructure is the best security you can afford that reduces risk. While this may sound a bit flippant, it is steeped in reality.

Side note- we are aware of the site issues and are working hard on them. There were major changes to the platform we use, and it conflicts with our high-security setup. I think we should have it fixed soon, and we apologize. That’s what we get for having a non-DevOps-y legacy site. Right now it is 68 degrees Fahrenheit here in Boulder, with an expected high of 89. A little toasty. It’s 92 in Phoenix, with an expected high of 109. Yesterday they hit 115, breaking the record. A little helly. Stupid humans and global warming. We are down to the last five days of our month in Boulder. Staring down 110+ degree temperatures isn’t doing much to improve my enthusiasm about heading home. Then again, I’ll only be home for one night before I head off to nine days in Vegas for Black Hat and DEF CON. I think it might be 1-2 degrees cooler there than Phoenix, so I’ve got that going for me. Which is nice. The end of a trip, especially an extended one, is always a melancholy time.
