Cisco patches serious flaws in router and conferencing server software

Cisco Systems released patches this week for several vulnerabilities in its IOS software for networking devices and the Cisco and WebEx conferencing servers.

The most serious vulnerability affects the Cisco IOS XR software for the Cisco Network Convergence System (NCS) 6000 Series Routers. It can lead to a denial-of-service condition, leaving affected devices in a nonoperational state.

Unauthenticated, remote attackers can exploit the vulnerability by initiating a number of management connections to an affected device over the Secure Shell (SSH), Secure Copy Protocol (SCP), or Secure FTP (SFTP).

When you die, is there any reason to believe a memory backup of your brain is uploaded to a cloud server?

Question by Long Lost Cousin: When you die, is there any reason to believe a memory backup of your brain is uploaded to a cloud server?
The brain is a physical medium that stores information, memories, and accumulated self identity. How can you speculate this information would be immortalized in the spirit realm?

Answer by Nathan Dee
Basically, cost (time and money) is a determining factor on whether you buy and setup your own server, or you rent out the service (Amazon, Microsoft, other). Another determining factor is capacity (bandwidth and storage) and the growing need for capacity. If bandwidth and storage needs don’t change much, then renting a cloud computer service might not make sense. Some hosting services will push back if there is a dramatic change in bandwidth, even if they say bandwidth is unlimited. Avoid RAID; one error will shut the whole thing down.

This is a pretty cheap home and small business server that can be upgraded. Wire a bunch together and run it all on some enterprise server software and you’ll have a cloud computer.

How can I setup a cloud server?

Question by TeK9ReapeR: How can I setup a cloud server?
I am looking for server side software to setup a cloud. Any ideas? Free is a plus but I will settle for paid if anyone can find it.

How to create a Web Server?


by gaobo

Question by GRIM: How to create a Web Server?
What i want to do is use an existing computer as a web server. I want to host my personal website AND also be able to access files like a “cloud” server. The computer that will be running this “server” will be running Windows XP (more then likely if I can’t get a hold of Windows 7 in the next few weeks)

This computer will house all backups of my documents and pictures, and my website is a forum based site, and more then likely run a game server on it as well down the road.

So please be as detailed as you can, I am computer literate, however more details makes it easier for me to follow.

Also, using a linksys router, not sure what i have to do with that…..

Thanks in advance!!!!

Answer by John
Download apache tomcat.

Unzip it.

Run the apache-tomcat/bin/startup.exe

Now go to http://localhost:8080

You are running your own server! Now you have to program html files for it.

To get it on the web, you sadly need to call your ISP and have them open port 80. It will cost you some money since they think you are running a business. Or you can get hosting from bluehost or godaddy (although godaddy is hard to use and doesn’t host files, it just reserves your domain).
