    Wink Me "On Report" this morning

    uh oh, gonna get called into the boss' office!!

    I tried to use SUDO from my General Use account ( not administrator ) and UBUNTU announced that not only was I not allowed to install the JDBC Java Driver but I was being put on report as well



    so, it'll be see the boss and sign the incident report . 2 days, no pay

    oh well it's kinda nice being retired.

    but logging this stuff is an important part of security. I'll have to learn to read the logs.

    Amendment
    I found the reference I wanted to include with this post: analysis of the DOE Hack
    the reason i want to include this reference with this post is: the response at DOE was triggered by system change log analysis

    Wow. You're screwed. Mark Shuttleworth is going to tear into you.

    I don't think I've ever used a non-administrator account in Ubuntu.

    i think "best practice" suggests using an ordinary user except when doing admin tasks

    i think a couple ordinary user account are a good idea: 1 or General Surfing; and another -- maybe 1 each -- for anything financial, Amazon, newEgg, Credit Union ...

    Yeah, that's probably the safest practice. I don't have anyone else who regularly uses my computer, and I'm just too lazy to use separate accounts.

    =" I don't have anyone else who regularly uses my computer,"

    uhhhhh -- as soon as you open a web page: you do: the web page author

    or an HTML e/Mail

    or a document with VBS script in it

    all modern documents must be treated as though they were executable files. in effect: they are in fact executable.

    Heh, funny. This reminded me I was reported once. Not 'put on report' but actually 'REPORTED!' I like these bits of humor--it was humor--right?

    yep -- but something to reflect on as well-- those system logs can be helpful in watching what's going on!

    Yeah, I always intend to go take a look later, but then I forget. At least it didn't say I'd done something 'Illegal' and lock me out immediately without a hearing, like windows does--
