    Project mention: How to secure my self-hosted website? | /r/selfhosted | 2023-02-09

    It does, but it defaults to nftables from (I think) Ubuntu 21 and onwards. So when you're running fail2ban in a docker container, it run an iptables command to block the IP. However, it errors out because nftables is default in Ubuntu 19 onwards (only for new installs). See https://github.com/crazy-max/docker-fail2ban down the page. You can replace the defaults, but I do not want to mess with my docker box at this point!

    Project mention: How do you remotely manage a linux minecraft server? What is SSH? Is that ever the right question to ask? | /r/admincraft | 2023-01-14

    It has no cons if it is configured well. I don't understand why you rebut something that is objectively better and it is done that way, security doesn't depend on the size of the server. A well configured VPN (there are plenty of guides like this one) adds an extra layer to you that is bulletproof, plus you have SSH configured well. I don't understand why debating on this. It is a standard system, used by everyone, that allows you to achieve high security. If for example, for whatever reason, you want to change your SSH configuration, even for a moment, making it insecure (maybe because you are configuring it), without VPN you cannot do that, with a VPN you can configure all your services safely. I don't understand what are the cons, the exploits? Everything can be exploited, look what happened with log4j, also SSH can be. For example several OpenSSH versions was exploited, name me a version of Wireguard that has been exploited. I really want to hear
