Cyber Hellcat is not amused


Hi, it's me, (probably a loving moron) who runs a server infrastructure for a tiny company that's basically me, my boss, and a ragtag offshore team.

Unfortunately, someone decided to chown -R $user:$user /etc on one of my dev servers. I can thankfully just restore a backup from 4 days ago to fix the permissions, but what's a good way to prevent people from running commands like that again? Aside from smacking them upside the head...

You know that black mirror style phishing attack that claims they have you watching porn or something and you gotta bitcoin them or they'll tell all your contacts?

I just got a new variant on that. It's a dynamic email - the contents are a tagged post in a google doc (your email is used as the tag) with the same style messaging. It managed to get around Google's own spam filter.

Just something to keep your users abreast on.

I was hoping this was a suggestion to help the previous poster with people abusing sudo. I have pictures of you jacking off, but as long as you don't do something stupid with sudo I will not release them.

Well I mean it would probably do the trick for that too tbh
