The Cloud Failed. "I came to bury it, not praise it." The solution to hacking and ransomware is - Virtualization and Hardware Based clustering.

The Cloud FAILED and is now an Obsolete Architecture.    You can quote me on that if you like:  Todd W. Byars,  July 1, 2021

All Clouds should be replaced immediately with a hardware based solutions and FULL Virtualization.   Modern, real time, incremental backups are recommended too.

How to Implement a Switch from Clouds to Hardware Clusters running full Virtualization:

  • Create Transition Plan to move from Clouds to Hardware Clusters.    VMware is our primary recommendation.  VMware in Command Line Interface, CLI, without all the GUI controls, gauges and services.
  • Select Micro-ITX or smaller motherboard computers that run cool or even fanlessly. Select Linux Load (preferred) or Windows Load or Other Load Procedure
  • Build Hardware, Setup and Test with Dummy Loads and Dummy Database.  After burn in and load testing run your pentesting and QA
  • Migrate Data to new Hardware Based Clustering.
  • Test, Run Live, Stress Test, PenTest and verify those backups.
  • Turn Clouds Off.

This problem is LARGE and GLOBAL.  So, The Computer Dudes, Inc and I, once again, GIVE you the procedure to use and share.   

It is for everyone, everywhere, including our competition who we consider as brothers and sisters in IT rather than competition.  So PLEASE SHARE!  

Who's your pal?  ;)  Todd

Here at Computer Dudes we believe everyone is in this together.    That it is good people and good corporations vs bad people and bad corporations.

We believe all Computer Techs, Architects, Engineers, Server Techs, Security Companies and even other Companies in any of these fields NOT to be our 
competition, but as our Brothers and Sisters. In that spirit, I give to your our current procedures for cleaning a home or office that has been hacked.

Read, Enjoy and PLEASE SHARE.   This is for computer users, phone users, techs and families too.   Print out a copy if you want.

Computer Dudes Standard House/Office Sweep with Data Capture and Reset of All Devices.

Procedure: 

  • Once a site or client has been hacked, enter the location and do a full scan of all Wi-Fi Signals, Sources, IP Numbers, Routers, Network and Devices.   (software Wireshark, Wi-Fi Analyzer App on Phone)
  • After data is recorded and your paperwork/report has been started, turn off all Routers, Devices, Phones, TVs and everything else that uses the network or Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. Repeat Scans. Locate items and turn them OFF.
    Repeat Scans until everything is clear. Make your notes.
  • Setup laptop for Nmap capture. Reactivate client's Main Router. Capture for 30 minutes.
  • Look at your data for abnormalities, strange IPs, scripts, hack attempts and signals from any hacker attempting to reconnect to the hacked devices, their IP, location, time and ISP. Copy all reports and data and submit to law enforcement.
  • Factory reset EVERY device in the house. Then, do Firmware Upgrades and test. Have the client set much longer and stronger passwords and remind them to change those from time to time and NOT to share them.
  • File Report and/or Invoice.   Have your people contact the ISP where the hacker accessed and get them cut off.   Block all IP's from the hackers or even by region.
  • Train Client on Basic Safety.
  • Present Client with Final Reports and/or Invoices.
  • Clean and Reset Laptop You Used to Clean Network and Capture Data so it is ready for the next job. 

This is our Standard Operating Procedure for June 2021.

We are also upgrading our RPI #solaronemonolith series to have a LED indicator on the Power over Ethernet adapter.

These machines are incredibly powerful if setup correctly. :)T

Computer Dudes is basically an "Invention" and "Corporation" Factory.

Much of the form and function follow that of Edison, Tesla, Ford and Westinghouse just to name a few.

Some of our products you know become whole industries like our #solaronemonolith

Other products you may not know, but use every day, or will.

We are not anyone's competition, we are everyone's friend. :)Todd

Something Fresh from an old friend of mine forming a new company out of his decade long Open Source movement and development groups.

All of this has been created by "Jaromil" aka Denis Roio, of Dyne dot Org and thousands of Open Sourcers, Researchers, Coders, Writers, Testers and more.

https://medium.com/think-do-tank/dyne-org-a-decade-in-perspective-55685c538dfb

Jaromil's Distro's have ALL the major Linux Software, Servers and Apps built in.

Enjoy!

Another solution to Log4J? - Replace Apache Server?

Alternatives to Apache Server:
Lighttpd.
F5 NGINX.
Oracle WebLogic.
Wildfly.
IIS 7.5.
IBM WebSphere Application Server.
Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform.
LiteSpeed Web Server.
TinyHTTP

Or expand on that list with your own research. :)

Let us know your thoughts or how it worked out, please.

Thanks,
