I stopped using IE entirely a month ago or so and have since been using the Opera browser. So far more stable, easier to use, and not thoroughly ridden with holes and problems. If I find I don't...

The plan was to patch anyway, the point of this thread was to help determine priority and time frame.

What is wrong with filtering emails with executable attachments? With the exception of a very few tech support people sending me patches/fixes/updates I never get legit emails with executables. I...

It's no trouble or extra work to add it onto the batch file with the rest of the patches, no sense leaving a hole if I am going to be there applying 25 other patches. As far as I am concerned there...

On the bright side.......between applying M$ patches and managing spam filtering I have no shortage of work. :) I use Nemx Powertools for Exchange and it is very useful for blocking spam.

He was more of a "nomad" according to stories I have read. He stayed with friends and his parents sort of traveling around with his laptop and clothing. I don't think he was really poor or...

Interesting, I also did not notice anything wrong. News.Google.com is my homepage and I use Google for searches about 20 times a day, have never seen that error message.

I'm more worried about the external threat during the next week or so, they will be patched soon so it's not a big issue. My main question was more directed toward should I panic and run in there to...

Funny shite guys, this is the first one I have read of these since I am new to the site but it is nice to see a new spin on the classic BOFH series.

A lot of the browser add-ons cause issues, particularly Hotbar......many of my clients have experienced fluky behavior associated with it. Maybe try getting rid of the Yahoo bar and afterwards...

Thanks everyone, figured as much but thought it would be best to get a second opinion. :cool:

How effective are firewalls against RPC exploits that use port 135? Specifically the vulnerabilities discussed in M$ security bulletins MS03-026 and MS03-039. I will patch the systems behind the...

Relatively piggy w/ resources
Expensive for home use
