When upgrading packages on Ubuntu using the apt-get upgrade command you may notice that some packages are not upgraded. Ubuntu will not upgrade packages that could have a major impact to service on the server such as the kernel, kernel headers, MySQL packages, and various others. The packages are held back by aptitude as a safeguard to keep people from upgrading packages that might keep the server from rebooting or that might corrupt something like a database. Below we show the error in more detail and explain the command that can be run to upgrade the packages that are being held back.

If you use the Amazon Product In A Post Plugin on WordPress you might have either not upgraded yet or decided to not upgrade because the shortcode syntax has changed.

MapPress is a WordPress plugin that provides an interface to Google Maps and easily allows you to insert detailed Google Maps into WordPress posts or pages. We have a site that provides password auditing services called QD Tools and on the homepage there is a map that lists the city, state/province, and country of our customers.

Need a quick way to generate a PHP backdoor for a compromised server you want to come back to later, then weevely is your application.

Xplico is a NFAT or Network Forensics Analysis Tool that is designed to either capture traffic in real time sessions or to provide an interface to upload PCAP (Packet Capture Data) files for analysis. The current version in Backtrack Linux 5 release 3 is 0.7 however the latest Xplico version is Xplico 1.0.1. I believe there are some dependencies required in the later versions of Xplico so I will write an updated article once Backtrack 6 comes up and the latest version of Xplico can easily be installed.
