Some time ago I’ve written an article named 16 GB encrypted candy file describing how to create encrypted filesystem within regular file. After quick research it became clear that cryptoloop is vulnerable and there is open exploit available on the web: see it here (thanks to everybody who commented that article). So I don’t recommend to use cryptoloop but instead take a look at truecrypt that makes it possible not only to encrypt whole storage but also to create encrypted file just like I’ve described in 16 GB encrypted candy file article.

While today 2.6.32 is the mainline version of Linux kernel, 2.4 branch is still supported by Linux community developers who fix security bugs there but don’t add any new functionality (unlike 2.6 that grows with new features like a snowball). Sometimes it happens that Linux box runs too much services which cannot be stopped so that admin is not allowed to migrate from 2.4 to 2.6 to keep those services online.
In my example the box runs 22.214.171.124 kernel but Vmware Server 1.0.* fails on it with segmentation fault throwing into the logs the errors below in this post. Does that look familiar to anybody? Is there any solution to run Vmware Server at 2.4.37 kernel? Thank you!
This could be an outstanding news by its significance.
