+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Alas, I won’t be attending the conference but in reading the speaking schedules, I found several talks that I hope will be recorded and published later.  Many are directly applicable to our customers and the work we do for them, some would tickle my inner geek and a few are super interesting for what they portend for the data management space.

Scale Up, Scale Out and HA – this is always a great topic.  ever changing thanks to very creative administrators and developers solving real world problems.

I was working on a client’s server that was recently compromised.  Interestingly the attacker had replaced the OpenSSH server with “trojan” binaries that accomplished two things:

  • All logins to the system had the username/password logged in a plain-text file (this was how I discovered the problem with OpenSSH)
  • It gives the attacker a remote backdoor that is undetected to the system. Another words, when the attacker logs in using the compromised sshd they do not show up in top or ps.

This is bad enough, but it gets worse. The system had been compromised for a week before I began …

MySQL Conference, Chapter 2
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The team just finished our second successful MySQL Con. Many thanks to Marten & Zack and all the folks at O’Reilly that put on such a great conference.

This year definitely had a different feel, and of course that had a lot to do with Sun’s influence. It felt like it was almost a new event, a chapter 2 for MySQL, and its ecosystem of vendors and customers. There were more people - I don’t know exact numbers, but it felt appeared to be twice as packed. The exhibit hall was the same, but we took up a bit more space than last year and certainly there were much fancier booths - ours included! We even gave away multiple prizes this year - our …
