Hey, i have a debian 8 root server i want to run a mysql database on it and access it from external. But i want to have the root server connected to a vpn server so the real ip dosent get leaked! What would be the best way to set this up? I am not really experienced with debian and ipconfigs. I first thought about using openvpn and just connect to a server, but the ip needs to be static to connect to the database on long-term. If i am not wrong there wasnt option for it... Does anyone have a idea how to do this, or could help me with that ? Didnt found anything useful about this yet ;( thanks a lot already!
If you're running AirVPN on Linux you probably don't want to have to type your sudo password in each time it runs. Why? If you're auto-starting it, you want your network lock and VPN connection to happen as soon as you login. Here's what I did for Ubuntu (Actually Kubuntu)... Install gksu (sudo apt install gksu) Add AirVPN to your autostart list and for command use gksudo /usr/bin/airvpn Run sudo nano /usr/share/applications/AirVPN.desktop and change the command to gksudo /usr/bin/airvpn Edit the AirVPN entry in your application launcher and change the command to gksudo /usr/bin/airvpn Run sudo visudo and add the line %airvpn ALL=(ALL:ALL) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/airvpn after all other rules (Press Ctrl+x and then Enter to exit and save). Run sudo groupadd airvpn Run sudo usermod -a -G airvpn user replacing "user" with your account's username. You're done. The next time you login (Or start it any any other way) AirVPN will start without entering any password. Note: Your AirVPN settings will be back to default after doing this. Don't worry, just set them again and they'll save.
/dev/ttyS0 recently analyzed D-Link's DIR-890L and found a security issue which opens up the possibility of executing any code with privileges of system, i.e. root. The worst thing about it is: The firmware version was designed to patch three different vulnerabilities in connection with HTTP and UPnP... .. which were, well, not really closed. If you are using a D-Link router orif you are planning on buying one,scroll to the bottom of the post and see if your model is listed there. If so, you should really think about your habits or your choices, respectively. From what I understood, this can only be exploited in a local network. The truth is: If D-Link doesn't seem to care about exploits in local networks - do you really think they care about what's coming from the internet? You should really abandon the D-Link ship.
