Setup DNS Primary and Secondary in Linux

Fri, 11/12/2021 - 14:45

This article will help you to set up DNS (Domain Name System) on Linux/Unix-based systems. DNS is mainly used to resolve host-names, which means it can easily bind IP addresses into a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) like www.linuxteck.com or www.google.com to IP addresses like 166.62.27.62 / 172.217.166.110. It is one of the basements of the internet. When you look for a domain name in a browser, it sends a question over the net to take a look at the domain with its corresponding IP address. Once identified, it uses the IP address to retrieve the website’s information. This whole technique takes simply milliseconds. DNS terms are used by many names, like name servers, domain name systems, and nameservers.

Here we are going to look at the Primary/Secondary DNS Server. In Linux, we will be using popular software to install DNS named BIND. It stands for ( Berkely Internet Name Domain), we implement DNS Service/Protocol used to translate Domain Name into IP address and IP address into Domain Name.

8 Dangerous Vulnerabilities Fixed in Samba

Thu, 11/11/2021 - 23:30

Corrective releases package Samba 4.15.2, 4.14.10, and 4.13.14 eliminates eight vulnerabilities, most of which can lead to a complete compromise of the Active Directory domain. It is noteworthy that one of the problems was corrected in 2016, and five – from 2020, though one correction led to the inability to run winbindd in the presence settings “allow trusted domains = no” (the developers intend to promptly publish another update to fix).
