Sparda Posted December 3, 2007 Share Posted December 3, 2007 So, some of you who care/notice things on web pages may have noticed that my avatar was missing for about a week. This was due to some kind of hardware failure in the server (some thing wasn't good in the hard drive). Non the less it's up and running again (and I managed to rescue in my www directory). However, I have made some substantial changes. My second server is now my only physical server, serving internal stuff. But (if the title didn't give it away) my web server is still running on FreeBSD but now in a VM on the remaining server. The server is running Ubuntu server (yep UBUNTU!) and FreeBSD is hosted in VMware Server (the intent still been that internal server stuff and servers with internet exposed services should be kept separated 'physically') I was just wondering how easy it would be for some one to tell (using service finger printing) that FreeBSD is running in a VM and figure out what it's host OS is. I can see straight away that this server would be completely vulnerable to any problems that turn up in the VMware kernel module. I was wondering to what degree a problem in the Linux kernel would compromise the server. Any one got any clues? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
