During the past years cybersecurity issues become extremely relevant and have already arisen to the government level. Recent high-profile cases of Chinese hackers, the emergence of computer war bible "The Tallinn Manual on the International Law Applicable to Cyber Warfare" and the creation of a Russian cyber-army shows how serious this issue is. The report provides answers to the following highly relevant issues: the way a server may got hacked, how servers are hacked, what to do if the server was owned by a stranger, and what could be the end of this terrible game. Practical exploitation examples of popular vulnerabilities are considered, as far as small research of hack tools. Tags: [vulnerability management], [attack vectors], [hacking], [forensics].

Free and Open Source software development model is very advantageous to use when creating large software projects. This development model is suitable, including, for software products used in the business. But Free Software business applications require specific organizational forms of Free Software Communities. For example, if Free Software Community based on non-profit organization, there is an opportunity to protect their developments from unfair competition.

Checkpoint/restore is a feature that allows to freeze a set of running processes and save their complete state to disk. Unfortunately, many attempts to merge such functionality into the upstream Linux kernel have failed miserably, mostly for the code complexity reasons. OpenVZ kernel developers team found a way to overcome this inability to merge the code upstream, by implementing most of the required pieces in userspace, with a minimal intervention into the kernel.

pkgsrc is a cross-platform packaging system. Besides NetBSD where it was born in 1997, pkgsrc supports Linux, Solaris, all BSDs, Minix, QNX and a lot of others. In total 15 platforms are supported. Pkgsrc has a number of advantages over existing packaging systems: easy packaging, support for many compilers, efficient binary package management and source-based upgrades but the killer-feature is a support for diverse operating systems.  Adapting pkgsrc for Linux as an additional yum/zypper/apt repository of binary packages is considered here. pkgsrc4unix Aleksey Cheusov

Camera tracking is a technology that helps to combine video from real life with 3D scenes, which are limited only by author's imagination. Currently, Blender allows to perform a simple one-point 2d tracking and complex reconstruction of the scene with the calculation of the markers and the camera position in 3D space. <br />
This technology is not limited to creation of visual effects. It allows architects to quickly and visually prototype their designs. It can be  also used in scientific calculations, because the reconstruction of 3D scene can be quite accurate. And finally, it is exciting and full of fun. Camera tracking in Blender Алексей Бабахин

Software-Defined Network (SDN) - is a new cutting-edge architecture concept, which meets new demands to networks. The main idea is that the network control is decoupled from forwarding and is directly programmable. It allows to build very flexible network topologies, which may be changed in runtime, from a single point of control. OpenFlow - is the key standard fully-implementing the concept of SDN. Though OpenFlow is an open standard, the most of existing OF Switches, that might be considered as a real enterprise ones, are proprietary. LINC is the first full-functional switch, which conforms to the last OpenFlow version, 1.3.1, and made for using in enterprise topologies.

An approach to teaching GNU/Linux basics in university is proposed. This program is the result of refactoring of earlier courses taught at MIET. This course's aim is to provide a working knowledge of the operating system, so students could start to use GNU/Linux. This is in contrast with previous course, which lost connection to practice and which was too difficult. The new version proved to be successful as a popular elective course.

The world is not ideal that's why some packages can't built under certain architecture (i.e. grub, wine) or some vendors doesn't produce packages (skype, steam). In future it will allow run ancient packages. For this cases all distributives has multiarch support - installing of packages from more then one architecture in one system.<br />
This article is an overview of multiarch realizations in modern GNU/Linux distributives: OpenSUSE, Fedora, Debian/Ubuntu, Gentoo, ArchLinux and describes differences in package lifecycle. Обзор реализаций поддержки мультиархитектур в дистрибутивах Linux и их сборочных системах Kanstantsin Shautsou

During games development  often exists a problem of choosing the right tool for storing and processing data. In this paper MySQL and Redis are compared. The main technique is to implement the part of functionality using each  tool and to analyse the obtained solution. The analysis includes both static code and data verification, and also real experiments with all interesting parameters measured. Then experiments' data are processed and given results are  objectively compared. Сравнение Redis и MySQL на задаче построения игровых рейтингов Алексей Романов

Free source software potential in Belarus society institutions (universities, schools, transport, etc.) is discussed. An approach is proposed to shift open source communities from marginal or narrow utilitarian positions to wide-spread mainstream. Drupal is free software created by people from the whole world. The CMS is heavily used in many countries, but no so much in Belarus. The worldwide Drupal community offers a lot of useful tools for needs of our society. Strong and weak sides in the Drupal deployment are covered on the example of school. Opensource Сommunities and Social Institutions Mikhail Volchak

Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) is an open platform for distributed computing developed since February 2002 by University of California in Berkeley and licensed under LGPL. Initially it was built to support famous SETI@home project, aimed to search signals of extraterrestrial civilizations among the cosmic radio signals. Currently many projects run by known research centers from around the world uses BOINC. BOINC allows users having a computer and internet connectivity to participate in scientific projects. Thanks to University of California in Berkeley not only the research institutions gained "cheap" computing power, but also it allows to grow awareness of common internet users concerning the scientific problems, which must be dealt with.

Speeding up Linux loading on ARM SOC is considered. Steps to speed up loading Linux on ARM board: review boot scheme (initramfs, no initramfs, filesystems, user space soft) and check loading time of all booting parts; customize pre-bootloader (on ARM TI AM3517 CPU is X-Load), turn off any console output, customize memory timings; customize bootloader (U-Boot), turn off any unused peripheral, rewrite some slow places; customize Linux kernel, turn off all unused options, move everything else to modules that come later; customize user space soft, loading GUI prior to other soft.
