I failed to identify the fact that I was looking to install Firestarter in Suse without having to use the useless RPM. This was my mistake. I did not want to get into the weeds of compiling a tarbar in Suse, which is still alien to me when I compare it to Debian Distros.
I was informing people of the fact that Suse 10.3 if not installed on a system behind a proxy or router, then “Suse 10.3” would leave port 113 closed and it would also respond to ping request. These are security holes.
After reading everything posted by you heretofore, I somehow doubt you.
Really? Libelous you say & derogatory? Uhm!.. See: click hereto see the google pages which deal with Suse port 113 security issues. These post start in 2002! Hello! You defended a security hole in suse 10.3! Therefore, it is perfectly rationale for me to ask if you were in some way vested either monetarily or personally in Suse, and the question remains. If there is not a security hole in “Suse 10. 3,” then why is port 113 stealthed in Suse 11.0? They screwed, so they fixed in Suse 11 although the default Suse 11.0 if not installed on a system behind a proxy or router, still responds to ping request.
Oh by the way click herefor the Microsoft bulletin that basically tells the world Microsoft with all it’s knowledge, made the stupid decision to leave ports 1433 & 1434 open/closed. Remember the slammer worm? A worm which could have been worst had it’s designer desired it to be destructive.
You claim to use GRC but you obviously have not read it thoroughly, for if you did read it thoroughly, you would’ve have, hopefully, not made the recommendations you made. GRC Port 113, GRC Port 1434
You consider me to be derogatory?
That is, of course, your prerogative
If you had not defended Suse’s security issue, I would not have had to ask if you were in some way vested either monetarily or personally in Suse, and the question remains. Some might say that only the guilty would see a question as an accusation. The best way to debate is with facts, references and a working knowldge of a dictionary, not raw passion.
Please have great Sunday sir
