RIP OpenRPN?



#11

Either OpenRPN is dead, or their site has been hacked. Have a look


#12

My browser says it needs a plugin. I'm not about to install a plugin just for that; what does the site say?


#13

It looks like the site was highjacked and I would certainly not download anything this site wants me to download. Nor give access to the dodgy signed java applet.

It's Java it wants. On my i686 Firefox 1.5 on FC4 with the latest JRE, I get "Null Pointer Exception" so you are probably safe even with Java installed, Eric. 8)

#15

Yes, the site has been hijacked... again. This happens from time to time. Everything should be up and running later today.

#16

What OS and web server are you running on your server?


#17

Looks like:

Apache/2.0.49 (Unix) mod_perl/1.99_08 Perl/v5.8.0 mod_ssl/2.0.49 OpenSSL/0.9.7d PHP/4.3.4 DAV/2

running on Linux, to me. With PostNuke as the CMS. Postnuke has a long and dishonorable history of SQL injection, cross-site scripting, directory traversal and other vulnerabilities. Apache 2's mod_dav has had its own problems, too.

Best,

#18

PostNuke is a fork of PHPNuke (which has a remarkably bad security track - I used to have my Site on PHPNuke until I was defaced twice).

I would recommend moving to another CMS - like Typo3, Plone, EZ Publish or Wordpress (even Trac is suitable although it has a very different feature set).


#19

I agree. I've had good results with Plone (general CMS), Wordpress (blog), and MediaWiki (wiki), and they seem to have relatively few security problems.

I'm considering using Trac for a software-related site, but I need it to integrate with a remote Subversion server, and last I checked it could only use a local one.


#20

You are right about that:

trac-with-a-remote-subversion-repository?
