Thread: Is file /etc/hosts.deny disabled on OpensSuse 13.2?

    Default Is file /etc/hosts.deny disabled on OpensSuse 13.2?

    Hi all,
    recentlly I have updated to opensuse 13.2, from 11.4.
    Now I just notice that the entries in file /etc/hosts.deny not taken effect... any rule.

    If I set
    sshd : ALL or sshd : * or ssh : ALL *
    I can continue accesing at my PC from any other IP...

    Have forgottern something? Any changes on opensuse 13.2 that I not know?

    Thank you.

    As far as I know, somebody decided to build "sshd" without tcpwrapper support. So "hosts.deny" doesn't do anything for ssh.
    opensuse Leap 42.3; KDE Plasma 5;
    opensuse tumbleweed; KDE Plasma 5 (test system);

    Code:
    * Sat May 17 2014 crrodriguez@opensuse.org- Remove tcpwrappers support now, This feature was removed
      in upstream code at the end of April and the underlying
      libraries are abandonware.

    I have the same problem since an update last week.

    How are we supposed to secure our systems if hosts.deny is ignored?

    Firewall?

    TCP wrappers were a hack and needed back when you didn't have firewalls. Now you do and iptables does a lot more, better and faster.
