I'm hopeful the browser memory leak fix ss the one I observed and reported with regards to the Jetstream tests at .

Edit: Edge still uses GB of memory and eventually crashes and returns to the start page before completing three runs of the test. Not sure if this is an Edge issue, or a combination of Edge and Sophos client v10.7. The same behaviour was seen with Sophos v10.6.

Playing with Open vStorage and Docker - Open vStorage BlogOpen vStorage Blog

Playing with Open vStorage and Docker - Open vStorage BlogOpen vStorage Blog:

Very interesting article on how to get vStorage up and running under Docker within VirtualBox. I managed to get a single node up easily but there were a few errors on adding the second node. vStorage seems to be a virtual storage solution that's able to replicate across disks, servers and locations while supporting compression, dedupe and encryption.

The line 'gzip -dc ovshc_unstable_img.tar.gz | docker load' should read 'gzip -dc ovshc_unstable_img.tar.gz | sudo docker load' and the URL to access the GUI should read https://IP_Address_of_VM.

Starting the second node seems to hang on the command 'sudo ./ join ovshc2' hung with the status 'Status: Downloaded newer image for' and nothing else seems to happen after this.

I'd really like to see a tutorial to set this up on a physical Ubuntu server with RDMA but I can't seem to leave a comment on the blog. :(

Good article though, and thanks!

I solved this by using the  Radeon Firepro settings app to use power saving for the file.

This forced to run under the Intel HD5500 card, and the graphics display correctly at the remote end.

Install Security Onion 14.04 into VirtualBox

Had some issues getting the guest additions working, but the following fixed it for me.

1. Make sure everything is up to date:

  • sudo apt update
  • sudo apt upgrade
  • sudo apt dist-upgrade
  • sudo apt-get autoremove
  • sudo apt-get autoclean
2. Make sure the correct Xorg is installed:
  • sudo apt install xserver-xorg-core
3. Install the guest utils and DKMS from the repo:
  • sudo apt install virtualbox-guest-utils virtualbox-guest-x11 virtualbox-guest-dkms dkms
4. Reboot and cleanup:
  • sudo reboot
  • sudo apt-get autoremove
  • sudo apt-get autoclean

Snort\Barnyard2\Snorby running on x86 Ubuntu 14.04

I followed this basic guide:

Step 5.2 I had to adjust the line:
./configure --with-mysql --with-mysql-libraries=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu

To the following line as I am running an x86 install on this old server:
:~$ ./configure --with-mysql --with-mysql-libraries=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu

Step 7, I pulled the Upstart scripts from the following:

This was due to Ubuntu 14.04 running Upstart rather than Systemd.

Section 8.12 - As I was running Nginx rather than Apache2, I followed this:

This page to configure Passenger:

The contents of /etc/nginx/passenger.conf that worked for me was:
passenger_root /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.3.0/gems/passenger-5.1.1;
passenger_ruby /usr/local/bin/ruby;

I still have an issue with the web page comlaning that the snorby worker isn't running, yet it is running from an upstart script.

I'll look at that another day!
