The Amazon Linux AMI, a supported and maintained Linux image provided by Amazon Web Services for use on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), is now at version 2012.09. The Amazon Linux Machine Image is an environment for applications running on Amazon EC and it includes packages that enable easy integration with AWS.
I want to do some experiments with buffer overflows on my various virtual machines, including (but not limited to) Debian 6, Ubuntu 12.04, Fedora 16, but every time I try to execute the buffer overflow exploit I get the following message:
stack smashing detected (core dumped)
After doing my research I read that it is a feature called buffer overflow protection implemented in the compiler.
I'm a software/web developer and for the first time I have to set up a cloud system to host one of the websites I have coded. I found very difficult to estimate the costs for an Amazon EC2 cloud system using the provided calculator.
I'm trying to setup LXC on Amazon Linux based ec2-instance. Libvirt is missing on amzn1 if I install with "yum install libvirt". However to compile them seems non trivial work. but before that, have I missed anything?
Anyone can share the steps to install libvirt on Amazon Linux AMI?
Also the instance is small and it has vary low CPU and EAM usage but it
generates a lot of content, so it can be considered like a web server
serving small amount of static files (not of a big size) to many clients.
From the technical point of view there is no problems for such instance to handle the load
serving many MBs per seconds.
