I'm a unix sysadmin, working as a consultant at Init AB (www.init.se).

Previous jobs include sysadmin in charge of security related systems at a large bank, and mail servers at a largish ISP, including handling abuse and spam issues.

comment Found a bank account number vulnerability. How serious is this?
You've tagged this question with "authentication". It's not clear to me how knowing the account number will assist anyone in authenticating themselves to the bank's web site.

comment Moving /boot to USB and Preventing booting from other USB devices (Allow boot from only one USB)
Second question: What is the purpose of disabling booting off of other USB devices? Since your disk is encrypted, those devices shouldn't be able to read it anyway, right? They could destroy the data, but not actually get at it - and if you have backups, the destruction isn't a big deal.

Have you considered burning it to a CD instead and booting off of that?

comment Where are the anonymous/private domain validation SSL certs?
I still don't think this question fits ServerFault. You might try it at Information Security instead; with the rewording I think it could fit there.

comment Is it bad practice to use your real name online?
Google closed my husband's Google+ account for not believing it was in his own name just a couple of weeks ago. They graciously offered to maybe reinstate it if he'd scan his own passport and send them the scan. So I'd say that they are still closing accounts for not sounding or looking right to their very blinkered eyes.

comment Finding spam sending scripts?
If the scripts are called from apache, then grepping those logs might be useful.
