Apache

Jorgee goes on a rampage

In a time-frame of just 10 seconds I got 1200 requests from the Jorgee vulnerability scanner, originating from 15 unique IP addresses. As usual it was just a blind attack probing a /24 subnet.

BlueOnyx 5107R - make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:80

Recently, I became aware that Apache’s access and error_log on a BlueOnyx 5107R server were both zero byte files. Restarting Apache to correct the issue resulted in the following error message: (98) Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:80 no listening sockets available, shutting down Unable to open logs Fixing the issue was a simple matter of issuing the following commands: killall -9 httpd service httpd start It seems that during logrotate, Apache was not able to get new file handles to write to the new log files.
