        Re: OpenBSD 5.7 released

        Or simply download an ISO from one of the mirrors, it's not exactly a huge download:

        http://www.openbsd.org/ftp.html#mirrors

        Been there, done that, have it running.

        Had it running, actually, I have one test server that runs -current. I've also ordered the CD. I always support the cause. (Same applies to the other BSDs, and Slackware Linux.)

      "But I need the stickers"

      Badges? We don't need no stinking badges. Besides, displaying your OS's operating system for all to read on the physical hardware is (potentially) a line of attack.

      Out of curiosity, does your BrowserOfChoice[tm] report the actual User-Agent to the remote server? How about your FTP client and/or server? eMail? telnet? USENET? etc.? If the answer is "yes" ... Why? Do you enjoy exposing your system's internal details to potential attackers? Or do you not know how to change the simple text strings?

      I'm not paranoid ... but I'm getting there. Hazard of being paid to do penetration testing ;-)

          Security by obscurity as a stand-alone is asking for trouble.

          As part of a total security package, it's an easy zero cost no-brainer.

          Your copy/paste display error betrays your lack of security knowledge.

              "directly into VI "

              That's "vi", dude/tte. HTH.

              "totally immune"

              Keep telling yourself that. vi has bugs, too.

              "How do you browse El Reg forums?"

              Lynx. Which also has bugs. But at least I'm aware of the vectors.
