Sepsis Victim Could Use a Little Financial Help
Mon, Jul 20th 2015 7:00a   Russell Maher
On July 2, I posted Please Read: One week from strep throat to amputation and possible death. If you don't already know about Sepsis, please educate yourself. Cathy has survived the amputations (her last surgery related to those was yesterday), got off the ventilator on July 6, left Intensive Care on 7/8, was removed from the feeding tube on 7/13 and I think will be heading to inpatient rehab in the next weeks. Despite all that has happened to her, when she was able to, Cathy actually said she

Please Read: One week from strep throat to amputation and possible death

This is not pleasant but this experience has and is moving me to get this message out: Educate yourself about sepsis and septic shock. Right now. Here's a link to get you started: http://www.sepsisalliance.org/. Right now a 48 year old woman with three teenage boys I have known for 20+ years is fully sedated in a hospital bed on a ventilator and a kidney dialysis machine and her liver has stopped working. They amputated her hands and feet yesterday afternoon and it is not clear that she w

Read a post from Julian Buss the other day about what he has done recently and it reminded me of something I wanted to post. First, business is going very well. We just added more staff and more customers in what is typically our off-season and we're strengthening what we already felt was a strong offering. Been an adventure so far. Have a superb team and am looking forward to the future which seems very positive. Still, we're a cautious bunch so "irrational exuberance" is not going to

Copying a NetScaler Application Firewall Profile
Mon, Apr 13th 2015 7:30a   Russell Maher
Not XPages but still...a post is a post! The Citrix NetScaler Application Delivery Controller provides a Web Application Firewall that can be used to protect against various attack vectors including the OWASP Top 10. Configuring the AppFw is no mean feat. Getting the protections configured correctly requires many rounds of application vulnerability testing using proper tools (i.e. IBM AppScan, OWASP ZAP, BURP Suite), determining which AppFW protection feature to enable in Learn Mode, and actu

As I mentioned in a previous post I've been having some troubles with my Fusion VMs getting corrupted intermittently over the last several months. VM no longer being backed up by Time Machine? Check. Computer no longer allowed to sleep. Ever? Check. VM needs to pre-allocate disk space? Check. Hmmm...maybe it's that pesky problem where my Thunderbolt display started deciding to just black out for no reason but, sometimes, after a Thunderbolt cable unplug/plug it comes back on or, just maybe, wh

Fix for More TLS POODLE Troubles
Sun, Feb 1st 2015 11:09a   Russell Maher
If you're running IHS in front of your Domino servers you'll probably want to apply this setting to prevent against the latest POODLE attack which now also affects TLS (the last time we did this it only affected SSLv3). Edit your Domino.conf file and add these lines inside your SSL configuration: # Enable strict CBC padding SSLAttributeSet 471 1 The information can be found here: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21692502

2014. Uh, yeaahhhhh. There is much I could say but I'll limit it to this: 2014 was not a great year in many, many ways and I'm literally looking forward to a time where the idiocy in my country, and the world in general, will rightfully be recognized for the foolishness that it is and the ever-moving societal pendulum swings back towards an equilibrium that actually makes sense. Moving on. QDiligence had a spectacular year! S P E C T A C U L A R Growth in sales, productivity, functional

Got PNG? You may get problems.
Mon, Nov 17th 2014 6:18a   Russell Maher
Last Spring I was configuring the Web Application Firewall in front of our Domino XPages application and discovered a rather annoying little Domino "feature." It seems that Domino likes to send PNG files down the wire while indicating that those files are JPEG files. To illustrate the issue I've included a screen shot from a quick Burp scan that shows there is a mismatch. The issue is that the image might not display at all depending on your network and security setup. This came up agai

VMWare Fusion VM Corrupted? Try this.
Mon, Nov 10th 2014 5:17a   Russell Maher
I use several VMs and have been using VMWare Fusion for years. No problems. Then last month one of my two main vms got this strange error. I futzed with it but was in a hurry and ended up being able to copy the critical files off of it just in case and the darn thing is still corrupted somehow and I really cannot use it any more. So...this past weekend I received a similar error that looks somethings like this... ...except that this time it was on my really, really main VM so I quickly us

Domino SSL Fixes Coming: "Dis is good!"
Tue, Oct 21st 2014 10:10a   Russell Maher
As Nicolas Cages tells Cher in Moonstruck when he's eating the steak she cooked for him... "'Dis is good." IBM released two technotes today regarding SSL and Domino. I do wish this would have happened sooner but I can tell you from a lot of life experience that "late" is truly better than "never." Domino peeps will be able to support TLS 1.0 and disable SSLv3 support (to protect themselves from POODLE without a proxy server) AND support for SHA2 SSL/TLS certificates is also coming.
