Linux Password of The Day


JamesL

Question

Afternoon All,

 

Not usually my thing but felt the need to get some feedback on the aforementioned matter.

 

Does anybody else have an issue with requests for Linux Password of The Day from OpenGI Support these days? When I worked there no more than 12 months ago TREM (Linux PWOTD) was allowed to be given out to any broker that requested it. The TRIPOS Password of The Day is not allowed to be given as it is the 'master key' to the OpenGI System that support use in place of standard usernames or logins. 

 

More so recently there has been reluctance to provide the linux password? What are other brokers experiences? Does anybody else seem to suffer the same problem?

 

Cheers.

Hi Ben,

 

Cheers for the response.

 

We are reviewing our DR procedures and Business Continuity Plans. This includes being able to recover failed or failing devices/servers in our environment. For example SQL Server that runs Infocentre that drives numerous operations in the business such as Lead Management, Management Information and is part of our core systems for our Telematics Brand.

 

We have recently replaced our InfoCentre SQL Server and would not have been able to facilitate the switch-over out of Business Hours without access to Linux Passwords.

 

Regards

James,

 

This is also an issue for us. I am currently in discussion with our account manager and other senior figures at OpenGi to continue recieving the TREM PWOTD. We have been requesting this on an ad hoc basis for some time with no real issue, but have come up against some resistance recently.

 

I am in fact waiting for an official response. Watch this space!

 

Thanks,

 

Tom

You will be able to make the necessary changes via the InfoCentre Plus web interface.  You can then use the lrun commands to restart InfoCentre Plus.

In addition, if you used the same DNS name for the SQL server you replaced, a reboot of Core will allow it to mount the share folder.

 

If you have a separate DR server, you can have this preconfigured to a separate SQL server.

 

I hope this helps.

    • Hi Val - I've not heard this being an issue generally - very strange. OGI will be best to investigate. Would be good to know the outcome!!   Just a thought - is it only the extract / csv with the issue - or does the full printed report still not report these?  
    • Has anyone else come across this problem, we are getting quite a few cases where the renewal is not populating on the list.  OGI have been looking at this from the copy CSV lists we have sent them, but have not resolved this issue yet. 
    • Open GI Sanction Check Update!   Function shortfall now on the #OpenGI radar - watch this space! 
    • Partnership deals that are in the interests of Open-GI's profits and not the best infrastructure for their clients. HP - (30% returns from printers to servers when I worked for a HP partner. Haven't been pleasantly surprised with 6 more years of dealing with their hardware). Microsoft - Oh ook another 60 security holes and a zero-day (M$ product zero-days can only be fixed or mitigated by Microsoft) that has been actively exploited for over two months now. Sophos - Tavis Ormandy of Google's top security team, charitably wrote a 30 page paper, which concludes that the company was "working with good intentions" but is "ill-equipped to handle the output of one co-operative security researcher working in his spare time". Recently, they forced through Multi-Factor Authentication for their "cloud" management site (which has a really useless, coutnerintuitve and uninformative interface), that is completely useless in a ransomware take over, you could easily be left without access to your "cloud". They should implement physical keys if they are going to push for this, not software methods that can be taken over as part of an attack. 
    • The real question for Open GI is why is only 1 browser supported?   Why do you think that is?   10 points for each correct answer …
