It was a simpler time, before virtualization and the cloud made infrastructure exponentially more complex. My favorites were the The...
Node.js, a cross-platform JavaScript runtime environment for servers and applications, offers many benefits. Low memory usage, good performance, and a large ecosystem of packages, which currently number about 475,000, have made Node.js a popular cho...
Giraffe, a micro web framework based on the F# language, is bringing functional-style programming to the development of web services on ASP.Net Core. Although F# is already supported in ASP.Net Core, Giraffe puts greater emphasis on the functional programming style by leveraging features such as higher-order functions. Likened to the Suave web server but specifically designed to work with Microsoft’s ASP.Net Core web framework, Giraffe is described as a native functional framework for building rich web applications that draws on advanced F# features. F# is an open source functional-first language that Microsoft created to address complex computing problems while producing simple, maintainable code.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Researchers have a devised a way to trick a web server into caching pages and exposing personal data to attackers.
As a junior network engineer at a university I wrote a lot of management scripts in Perl.  I had scripts to do things such as check switchport configurations and upgrade switch code.

Times have changed a lot since then.

The universityrsquo;s web server now runs in the cloud, rather than on my personal workstation, and Python hasnbsp;surpassednbsp;Perl  as the scripting language du jour. Network automation now has a major focus with Python as an extremely important tool.Today Irsquo;m going to show you how to use Python scripts hosted on the box and integrated into IOS.

This is far more powerful than my earlier-career scripts, and I have some simple examples for PCI compliance, Dynamic DNS ACL updates, and configuration validation.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

A proof-of-concept exploit has been published for an unpatched vulnerability in Microsoft Internet Information Services 6.0, a version of the web server that's no longer supported but still widely used.The exploit allows attackers to execute malicious code on Windows servers running IIS 6.0 with the privileges of the user running the application.

Extended support for this version of IIS ended in July 2015 along with support for its parent product, Windows Server 2003.[ 18 surprising tips for security pros. | Discover how to secure your systems with InfoWorld's Security Report newsletter. ]Even so, independent web server surveys suggest that IIS 6.0 still powers millions of public websites. In addition, many companies might still run web applications on Windows Server 2003 and IIS 6.0 inside their corporate networks, so this vulnerability could help attackers perform lateral movement if they access such networks through other means.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
