Hey, gang, long time no see.
Got a quick question that probably has a longer answer. We are looking to set up some kind of audit process to see who is accessing what file shares on our Windows...

I'd go with Sophos. It gives admins more control than anything else I've seen.

Anybody using this "dog"? We rolled it out at the end of February and have had n-o-t-h-i-n-g but grief. Perhaps "rollout" is not the best way to describe it as I am having to touch most of the...

That may be true. I bullchit my way thru college back when there were
no PC's, not even Apples. Think I was a History major, maybe a philosophy
minor. This was in the day when MIS students...

Don't forget TDSSkiller:
Just clean it up with the apps Westin and Nihil suggested. Be aware
badly infected machines have often been hit by...

Just buy some voice recognition software. Better yet, pull it off a torrent.
Then install it and start talkin' fast. Any word processor can clean up the ...

I've had to deal with this very issue on a number of small networks. Netflix is going to kill your bandwidth, as are torrents. I use IPcop on an older computer with a Layer7-modified kernel to...

Sounds like that computer's infected. Redirects are symptomatic
of trojans and viruses. If you can, check the LAN settings in
the "Connections" tab under "Internet Options" in the "Control ...

Dells have a boot menu available on their splash screen,
before the OS boots. F12, maybe F10, is the key (F1 or
F2 gets you the bios). Did you try booting up via the Dell

The individual ports themselves, where the RJ45's plug in, will go bad.
On the FVS318, there's one WAN port and 8 LAN ports. Obviously the
WAN port's dedicated, but have you tried switching the...

As Papadimitriadis describes the story, Systemgraph recommended an interior and exterior cleaning, as well as a replacement of the LCD panel. However, when he came back to pick up his computer, he...

I wouldn't update the firmware if I didn't feel I had to, or if I didn't have a back up unit.
One packet lost in 654 is perfectly acceptable. Anytime you get more than 1% packet loss and things...

How long has that Netgear FVS318 been around? I have a "pull" from a
client's office that flaked out similarly to what you described after 3 or 4
years. I did update the firmware and continue to...

Also, what are you running for a gateway? I've had recent problems on a
free wifi network I admin when I set udp filtering a little too low and the users
were unable to connect to a DNS server. ...

Hardware? Got an extra NIC around?
Could it be an ISP issue? Are you dropping packets?
I often run continuous pings against www.yahoo.com, sometimes for
days at a time, to gauge packet...

Try an alternative DNS server. Level3 has public DNS servers at:
Google's are at:

My client had a TDL4 infection, and TDSSkiller (free download from Kaspersky) was quite effective at cleaning it up. This issue is two weeks out now and the computer has not been reinfected.

I typically use passphrases to create passwords. Which would work out like this for
the previous passphrase:
Then I add four digits from a phone number, and a symbol or two, varying...

Question: does formatting a HDD overwrite the MBR? Anybody know? This client
had an MBR virus a couple of months back, and I used a utility called MBRfix from
a PE disk to restore it. I've...

However, on x64 platforms kernel-mode rootkits do not feel so at ease, both on x86 systems. This is one of the factors to choose the method of infection computer - infected MBR. Another factor is...

A quick read of some of the white papers on TDL-3 yields this:
"On a side note: the dropper won't infect the system if it runs in a
limited account or in an account with UAC activated."
December 20th, 2010 07:01 PM
TDL-3's been "in the wild" for some time (2008?) from everything I can tell,
but this weekend was the first time I've run across it. I'm posting this
because I was altogether unable to get a...

Are the PC's on a domain? How many admins do you have onsite? Could any
of the students set a password? Is it possible someone changed some settings?

OpenBSD lauds itself as one of the most secure OS's on the market. Now news
comes that a couple of ex-developers helped the FBI engineer some hacks to the
crypto code ten years ago. Allegedly...
