SMOG commented on 2021-05-07 08:37

Thanks for reporting. Should be done.

Please add ruby-rss as a dependency.

  • ruby-rdoc is not neccessary due to a change to the gem install command

Please add ruby-rb-inotify as a dependency and ruby-rdoc as a make-dependency.

I do not see any connection to transmission-rss from the pasted log. SSH brute force is quite a common attack on globally accessible machines. You can mitigate this for example by only using public key authentication, rate limit access to port 22/tcp, and dropping traffic from collectively blacklisted IP addresses (e.g. using denyhosts).

Do you still have the files `transmission-rss-0.1.25.gem` or `transmission-rss-0.1.25-1-any.pkg.tar.xz` you installed transmission-rss from? Would you please upload them for further investigation?

A tar ball of `/usr/lib/ruby/gems/2.4.0/gems/transmission-rss-0.1.25` would also be interesting.

Let us further discuss this on, please.

I have noticed a ssd connection attempt trying to come into my system when using this package when starting it. Seems to be a chinese IP, and should be seriously considered before using this. Here is a journalctl -xe

Thanks for the reminder! I updated the PKGBUILD. A more recent version of ruby-open_uri_redirections than 0.1.1 (as in AUR) can be found on or generated with gem2arch or pacgem.

This package now depends on >=0.1.4
