2017-11-05 07:32:26 -0500 answered a question Does Hotspot option support only wep security?

According to this:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/RealHotspot

... The kernel does not work reliably in WPA/WPA2 Ad-Hoc mode, leading to supposedly secure networks being created as insecure ones. ...

That is probably why only support for WEP exists.

Your hardware may not have a driver that supports AP (Master mode) and/or Ad-Hoc mode. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_open-source_wireless_drivers#Driver_capabilities

2017-11-05 07:20:49 -0500 commented answer Does Hotspot option support only wep security?

Just using nm-connection-editor does not fix this issue. Here is a screenshot showing only WEP, no WPA2. this makes it impossible to connect many modern devices that do not support WEP. https://photos.app.goo.gl/lB4Fa1CZXZj...

Didn't work, please see below. Thanks for the suggestion, anyway.

2017-10-05 13:43:29 -0500 answered a question What is the correct way to restart dnsmasq when it is in the libvirtd cgroup

I gave up on systemd. Sorry. I simply had to restart the security-patched dnsmasq, anything else would not have been safe. I had to use killall dnsmasq and then systemctl restart libvirtd or dnsmasq would not restart.

Mostly I gave up on systemd when I found this bug report. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug....

Here's a transcript of the work-around I used in action:

Start time of dnsmasq did not change when sudo systemctl restart libvirtd was used. Trying killall:

Please reboot Fedora the insert and remove the USB device then run dmesg | grep -iE 'HCI|usb' and post the output of that.

Share the last 20 lines of the journal prior to the previous shutdown attempt. You can use journalctl --since $(journalctl --list-boots | tail -n 2 | head -n 1 | awk '{print $4}') | tail -n 20 please.

2017-10-04 12:34:32 -0500 answered a question How to move storage from Partition to LVM /home that's part of that partition?

Partition sda5 is currently in use by LVM. To mess with it would be very bad.

To demonstrate the way that sda5 is in use try: sudo pvdisplay /dev/sda5 you can read about pvdisplay by running man pvdisplay and pvdisplay --help.

Make a backup of your Windows 7 and then use a partition shrinker. Then install Fedora.

For each CVE code, browse to URL like this: https://access.redhat.com/security/cv...

Then scroll down and see the list of package names on that page.

To translate to Fedora package versions, take the package name from that page and run rpm -q --changelog pkgname and search through that for the CVE code. Some packages may be deprecated or have different names, search around.

Did you mean this guide: https://medium.com/@darioems/install-...

kernel 4.11.8-300.fc26.x86_64 is very out-of-date. If you can hook a lan cable up and use sudo dnf upgrade it would help.

Then configure the rpmfusion repo files into your system, see https://rpmfusion.org/Configuration/

Then run sudo dnf install broadcom-wl and the dependencies will pull in akmod-wl automatically:

Please note I aborted deliberately because I do not need broadcom drivers but this shows the dependencies will install:

$ sudo dnf install broadcom-wl

2017-10-02 17:42:43 -0500 asked a question What is the correct way to restart dnsmasq when it is in the libvirtd cgroup

Hi,

How that dnsmasq has the following new disclosures:

  • CVE-2017-14491 DNS heap buffer overflow.
  • CVE-2017-14492, DHCPv6 RA heap overflow.
  • CVE-2017-14493, DHCPv6 - Stack buffer overflow.
  • CVE-2017-14494, Infoleak handling DHCPv6 forwarded requests.
  • CVE-2017-14495, OOM in DNS response creation.
  • CVE-2017-14496, Integer underflow in DNS response creation.

How should I restart dnsmasq when it is in the libvirtd cgroup, please?

When I run: sudo systemctl restart libvirtd dnsmasq does not call execve(2), instead it only re-reads configuration files.

That leaves the vulnerable version of dnsmasq still running after a patched copy is installed on disk.

Thanks, MC
