Another site where you can go to not get malware, but to get videos of the malware being installed, is the site of Ben Edelman. He's got some videos of this exact same thing: going to a web site and...

It looks like the guy who makes CWShredder at Merijn.org has been on vacation from Jan 9 to Jan 19. So, that is probably why it does not take care of this new version.

First, NMAP is now on version 3.48, so running this older version could impact the OS detection. Version 3.00 has a datestamp of July 28, 2002. So, right there, I do...

Here is my most embarrassing story. It is not very security related, but it is fun!

TH13, thanks for the warning.
I've already talked to my company's security officer, and we are gonna send out an alert on this. We have had 4 offices that had Welchia outbreaks, and I know some...

Oh, you already reinstalled? Rats!
For future reference, here is one trick you can use. When the Default value for HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\open\command gets changed, thereby preventing any...

Open up the Event Viewer on any Windows NT/2K/XP/2K3 machine.

I have been working with Tivoli Storage Manager running on Win2K for almost 2 years now. 1 year ago, we migrated from a IBM Magstar 3570 tape library (which is really a dinosaur!) to the IBM 3584...

I started patching some "non-critical" machines last night. I checked their Event Viewer logs after the reboot, and there was nothing abnormal. Full functionality was available. I ran this on an IIS...

CXGJarrod, you posted:
The Technet article on this one says that this situation is true, that scanners that scan for MS03-026 will not detect it being patched if you have this new patch only...

There is a virus that is farily recent called WINPUP32.EXE that your friend might have.

Symantec just upgraded W32.Welchia.Worm to a Category 4 "Due to an increase in submissions."
It exploits RPC/DCOM over port 135. Plus, the new twist to this one that I think warrants a brief...

What is wrong with you that you have to post these meaningless statments that do nothing but demean the work we are trying to do here. This new Msblaster.EXE RPC worm is flying everywhere causing...
