This isn't normally a security vuln release list but this one looks pretty bad
A newly discovered vulnerability (CVE-2014-6271) in the Bash
command-line interpreter poses a critical security risk to Unix and
Linux systems. It allows remote code execution.
NZITF is responding to this remote execution exploit, with a News page
that we will be keeping up to date - http://www.nzitf.org.nz/news.html
We are also reaching out to technical and security community points of
contact to raise awareness to the issue and ensure necessary action is
taken (hence this email to you). Please note, no patch is yet
available for Mac OSX. However, many other patches are available.
So Patch, Patch, Patch.
We are looking at undertaking another Whole of Domain (WOD) web harvest during this financial year. (I will be in touch with you with the specifics once we have some of the timings formalised with the crawl contractor, the Internet Archive.
I wanted to ask for your views on adherence to robots.txt.
We have three options that are hypothetically available to us, each with various merits.
1) Strictly adhere - will miss some artefacts required to replay a site correctly
2) Adhere but follow embeds - (allows us to get linked images, css, some json etc)
3) Ignore - most fulsome crawl.
On the last WOD (in 2013) we used option (2), and I wanted to test if this was still the right option to choose.
We aim to capture the most complete snapshot of the NZ web possible so it is available to future generations. This Robots issues directly affects the completeness of the crawl we can undertake.
If we choose the wrong option, there is a risk of a, reduced crawl coverage, and frustrated web content operators.
I'm really keen to make sure we are able to capture the most complete WOD we can, and seek your opinions on the above, on or off list.

Out of curiosity - did anyone else see the DNS replies for outlook.office365.com scoot over 512 bytes on Friday? An ANY query from here currently returns a 740 byte answer.
Trying to determine if Microsoft changed something on their end or my customer's router unexpectedly lost the ability to deal with large DNS replies 8^)
I'm canvassing (soliciting??) for people interested to swap a few U and a
few Mbps for a DR / monitoring server. People who just want to sell me rack
space and data in a one way arrangement need not apply, I can research that
We are based in Auckland, but realise that all the sites we have available
to put our monitoring and DR server are also in Auckland, with very similar
To keep it on topic, to the winning referral goes the beer!

Hi guys, does anyone know the traffic path (or source IP's) for the Spark
Lightbox service ? Interested to know if they are handing the traffic over
APE or not. I really hope someone has not done something very stupid and put
the streaming servers in Sydney and expect all the ISP's to pay to haul the
traffic in internationally.

Taking a look at the APC Website and their Distributors I can only see acquire listed for NZ.
I have no experience with them as a supplier, can others provide me with experiences offline?
Also is there anyone else in NZ who supplies APC gear / is an APC Rep / Expert who would be able to help with planning some purchases? I have a couple of small DC’s to fit out (starting small but planning to improve management features on it as well).
Any contact details would be much appreciated.
