Bitcoin E-Book

Derzeit ist auf der Homepage von Arvind Narayanan (Assistenz-Professor aus Princeton) ein E-Book (PDF) erhältlich, das sich ausführlich mit der Crypto-Währung Bitcoin beschäftigt. Das Buch soll in gedruckter Version bei der Princetion University Press erscheinen und ungefähr ab Sommer unter dem Namen „Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Technologies“ erhältlich sein. Daher ist das E-Book derzeit nur als Entwurf zu sehen – der aber erstaunlich fertig aussieht und bis auf einige wenige Typos relativ fertig erscheint.

Die Autoren setzen grundlegendes Wissen im IT-Bereich voraus und möchten das Buch weniger als Sachbuch, als als Lehrbuch ansehen. Deshalb sind nach den Kapiteln auch Fragen/Aufgaben hinterlegt, die der Leser lösen kann und somit verifiziert, dass das gelesene Wissen korrekt adaptiert worden ist. Die Lösungen sind derzeit noch nicht verfügbar, aber Arvind Narayanan hat angekündigt, dass diese zeitnah auch online verfügbar sein sollen. Ein Besuch auf der oben verlinkten Homepage ist daher in regelmäßigen Abständen bei Interesse an der Lösung keine Fehlentscheidung.

Wichtig war den Autoren, die Thematik Bitcoin ausführlich zu analysieren, da diese eine neue Technologie darstellt, die dem uns bisher Bekannten nicht vergleichbar ist. Ein Schmökern im kostenlosen Entwurfs-PDF kann daher getrost empfohlen werden.

CTB-Locker befällt Websites

Mit zunehmender Verbreitung von sogenannten Crypto-Trojanern werden die Ziele auch immer breiter gefächert. Die neue Version des CTB-Lockers ( CTB-Locker ) befällt nun auch Websites.

Besser gesagt: Der Angriffsweg ist noch nicht ganz klar, es wird vermutet, dass der CTB-Locker (ein PHP-Script) auf Webserver, die eine Sicherheitslücke haben, geschleust wird. Der Quellcode des Trojaners sowie infizierte Seiten sind unter ersichtlich.

Der CTB-Locker befällt den Webserver, verschlüsselt Dateien mit bestimmten Endungen und gibt ein Zeitlimit, bis zu diesem eine Summe in Bitcoins zur Entsperrung gezahlt werden muss. Ist eine Website befallen, sieht dies wie folgt aus:


Bei Bedarf ist sogar ein Video eingebettet, in dem der Erwerb von Bitcoins beschrieben wird. Wenn an die entsprechende Website (z.B. http://hier-eine-testsi.te) eine Endung angegeben wird, kann man zum Test zwei beliebige Dateien kostenlos entschlüsseln. (im Beispiel: http://hier-eine-testsi.te/?page=freepage )

Die Dateiendungen, die umbenannt werden, sind folgende:

Um einer Infektion zu entkommen, wird empfohlen, sämtliche CMS auf dem aktuellen Stand zu halten, die Sicherheit eigener Skripte zu überprüfen und auch Webserver wie Apache, nginx, sowie den Server an sich abzusichern.

Linux Mint ISO’s kompromittiert

Wie im Post auf dem Linux Mint-Blog zu lesen ist, sind die .iso-Dateien des 20.2. mit modifizierten Versionen ausgetauscht worden, beziehungsweise der Link auf der Website zeigte auf diese. Ferner wurde das Forum ebenso gehackt und die User gebeten, ihr Passwort zu ändern.

Was ist genau betroffen?

Primär Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon Edition.

Eine Möglichkeit, ein eventuelles Image zu kontrollieren, ob eine Kompromittierung vorliegt ist der Befehl „md5sum yourimage.iso“. Hierbei muss an Stelle von yourimage natürlich der Name der entsprechenden Datei eingegeben werden.

Korrekte Summen wären:

6e7f7e03500747c6c3bfece2c9c8394f  linuxmint-17.3-cinnamon-32bit.iso
e71a2aad8b58605e906dbea444dc4983  linuxmint-17.3-cinnamon-64bit.iso
30fef1aa1134c5f3778c77c4417f7238  linuxmint-17.3-cinnamon-nocodecs-32bit.iso
3406350a87c201cdca0927b1bc7c2ccd  linuxmint-17.3-cinnamon-nocodecs-64bit.iso
df38af96e99726bb0a1ef3e5cd47563d  linuxmint-17.3-cinnamon-oem-64bit.iso

Wenn in einem eventuell kompromittierten Image in die Live-Session gebootet wird, kann dort die Datei /var/lib/ vorliegen. Wenn dem so ist, ist das Image infiziert.

Die Täter? Hierzu schreibt Clem folgendes:

Who did that?

The hacked ISOs are hosted on and the backdoor connects to

Both lead to Sofia, Bulgaria, and the name of 3 people over there. We don’t know their roles in this, but if we ask for an investigation, this is where it will start.

What we don’t know is the motivation behind this attack. If more efforts are made to attack our project and if the goal is to hurt us, we’ll get in touch with authorities and security firms to confront the people behind this.

Was tun, wenn infiziert? Rechner formatieren, Passwörter aller Webseiten – sofern denn welche besucht worden sind – ändern.

Forum-Benutzer bei Linux Mint? Dringend alle Passwörter, die „baugleich“ oder ähnlich sind ändern. Von Seiten Linux Mint wird empfohlen, mit dem Mailpasswort zu beginnen.

Warum Linux Mint?

Ich denke, mit zunehmender Akzeptanz von Linux, werden Desktop-Distributionen als Angriffsziel immer attraktiver. In diesem Fall wurde nicht Linux selbst, sondern der Verteilmechanismus und das Forum von Linux Mint angegriffen. Linux Mint ist eine einsteigertaugliche Linux-Distribution, weshalb die Opfer somit im Schnitt wohl weniger versiert sind. Wer unterschiedliche Passwörter für alle/viele Dienste verwendet, ist hier gut gefahren. Ansonsten sei dies erneut nahegelegt. Augen auf im Internetverkehr!

Tails 2.0 veröffentlicht

Meilenstein 2.0

Tails ist eine Linux-Distribution, die den Schwerpunkt ganz klar auf Privacy setzt.  Das Entwickler-Team hat heute die Version 2.0 bekannt gegeben.


Im Zuge des neuen Meilensteins wurde auf Gnome 3.0 umgeswitched. Dies jedoch im Classic-Modus, sodass der Look der Distribution nicht allzu krass vom Vorgänger differiert. Ferner basiert Tails auf Debian 8.0 (Jessie), was viele Updates/Upgrades erleichtert.

Upgrades and Changes

Bei Tails wird folgendes angeführt:

  • Debian 8 upgrades most included software, for example:
    • Many core GNOME utilities from 3.4 to 3.14: Files, Disks, Videos, etc.
    • LibreOffice from 3.5 to 4.3
    • PiTiVi from 0.15 to 0.93
    • Git from 1.7.10 to 2.1.4
    • Poedit from 1.5.4 to 1.6.10
    • Liferea from 1.8.6 to 1.10
  • Update Tor Browser to 5.5 (based on Firefox 38.6.0 ESR):
    • Add Japanese support.
  • Remove the Windows camouflage which is currently broken in GNOME Shell. We started working on adding it back but your help is needed!
  • Change to systemd as init system and use it to:
    • Sandbox many services using Linux namespaces and make them harder to exploit.
    • Make the launching of Tor and the memory wipe on shutdown more robust.
    • Sanitize our code base by replacing many custom scripts.
  • Update most firmware packages which might improve hardware compatibility.
  • Notify the user if Tails is running from a non-free virtualization software.
  • Remove Claws Mail, replaced by Icedove, a rebranded version of Mozilla Thunderbird.

Fixed Problems

Diese werden wie folgt definiert:

  • HiDPI displays are better supported. (#8659)
  • Remove the option to open a download with an external application in Tor Browser as this is usually impossible due to the AppArmor confinement. (#9285)
  • Close Vidalia before restarting Tor.
  • Allow Videos to access the DVD drive. (#10455, #9990)
  • Allow configuring printers without administration password. (#8443)


Tails benötigt einen nicht näher definierten Prozessor, 2GB RAM und ein DVD-Laufwerk oder USB-Stick. Der USB-Stick sollte mindestens 4GB groß sein.


Das .iso-Image ist 1,1GB groß und kann auf der Website von Tails heruntergeladen werden.



Windows Server 2016 TP4

Die Technical Preview 4 (TP4) von Windows Server 2016 ist bei Microsoft erhältlich.

Der entsprechende Download ist hier zu finden. Eine Liste der Neuerungen ebenfalls:

  • Die Container in Windows (Docker,…)
  • Neuerungen in Active Directory Certificate Services
  • Neuerungen in Active Directory Domain Services
  • Neuerungen in Active Directory Federation Services
  • Neuerungen in Failover Clustering
  • Neuerungen in Hyper-V
  • Neuerungen in Windows Defender

  • 1,4GHz
  • 64 Bit
  • 512 MB RAM
  • 32GB HDD
  • Netzwerkadapter
  • DVD-Laufwerk, falls von DVD installiert werden soll

akzeptabel dimensioniert und entsprechen den Erwartungen.

Eventuell sind die Release Notes noch interessant für den einen oder anderen.

Viel Spaß beim Herunterladen und Testen. 😉

Windows 10 Update 1511 wird nicht angezeigt

Da ich heute zeitlich knapp bin, in Kürze:
Wer auch wie ich das Problem hat, dass Windows 10 Update 1511 nicht angezeigt wird, kann „tricksen“, indem er die Website Get Windows 10 aufruft.

Hier wird dann auf „Upgrade now“ gedrückt und die .exe-Datei heruntergeladen. Keine Sorge, die Quelle ist Microsoft selbst, also sollte dies relativ unbedenklich sein. Im Nachgang sollte Windows 10 dann automatisch den Upgrade-Prozess auf Update 1511 starten.
