Hey ho,
I try to install mailman on my server.
Now I have to give /home/mailman/cgi-bin permissions to run cgi-scripts.
How can I do this?
In the documentation of mailman s.th. like
Exec          /mailman/*      $prefix/cgi-bin/*
ScriptAlias   /mailman/       $prefix/cgi-bin/

is shown. Which one is right, or none?


Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the
grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin
charging at them in excess of 100mph.  They'd be a lot more careful about
what they say if they had.  -- Linus Torvalds, announcing Linux v2.0


1. /cgi-bin/phf /cgi-bin/test-cgi /cgi-bin/handler

I've been seeing a number of attacks of this sort recently
from various sites in the http logs.  The time correlation
between the logs on various hosts suggests that the attacker
was scanning sequentially upward in IP addresses.  Since all
tcp and udp packets to ports below 1024 except for http,
smtp, and ident are filtered out for most, including the
attacking, sites, I'm not seeing anything else in the logs. - - [04/Jul/1998:07:19:27 -0500] "GET /cgi-bin/phf" 404 - - - [04/Jul/1998:07:19:28 -0500] "GET /cgi-bin/test-cgi" 404 - - - [04/Jul/1998:07:19:28 -0500] "GET /cgi-bin/handler" 404 -

Is this a signature of some known attackware?  If so, what
other attacks accompany these http probes?
