Hmm, I thought it was considered a 'BAD' remote access program -
But a 'trojan' seems to almost fit it better.
It sits and runs on your computer, making you think you have a secure way to remote...

Firstly, you also need to turn off the 'function as a supernode'.
Also, simply turning file sharing off isn't good enough, you must also verify it stays off as there are multiple ways for it to...

I find it always a good habit to be in, is to always change the default admin password whenever possible.
Otherwise, unless you need certain things opened up because you want to run your laptop as...

If you setup a domain with a DHCP/DNS server running then it isn't really neccesary but if talking about a smaller (under 100 systems) I would still recommend it for reporting/accountability.

No, I'd suggest purchase GoToMyPC for RAT, more costley but doesn't require additional ports to be opened on the firewall and uses better encryption.
Point in fact: PC anywhere's encryption on...

I got to say nihil, that is by far one of the most paranoid things I've heard of someone actually doing. (Not that its a bad idea - just more caution then I've heard of someone actually...

Flaming Rain probably has your best solution - that is if you must use these public systems to do your work... Although phishphreek80's suggestion to bring your own laptop (either yours or one you...

Glad to hear you're back up and working, but on a side note to something you said:
It doesn't matter how long before running them you downloaded them, almost no adware/malware programs come...

Kazza lite I hear has little to no problems - But as far as Kazaa which you asked about, there are still constantly new viruses being created and spread over it. Here is a blurb from Panda AntiVirus...

There's been a problem found with Macromedia Flash and IE/Opera, here's a snipett from a Panda AV newsletter:
Madrid, December 18, 2003 - Macromedia has released a new version of...

Agreed - just common open-relay spam:
The fact that it shows "(HELO alpha)" very much matches the common methods of using an open relay email server.
Which as mentioned allows them to type in...

To show 'all headers' in yahoo you can do the following:
- Open an email
- At the bottome where it says the following - click on 'Edit Preferences'
The HTML graphics in this message...

Don't forget Klez.
Still seeing constant Klez emails going around - especially the 'japanesse girl vs playboy' variant around here...

Not sure if everyone is just being difficult, or simply don't know how to do so - but 'unlocking' your DCT4 is nothing more then a calculated code.
I forget the formula myself, and its a rather...

Depends on many things...
In alot of cases, you simply can't.
For someone to be able to answer that they'd likely need to know what kind of email server it is, whether you desktop at work has...

I'd like to throw in my 2 cents and say:
Its ok to use someone elses 'source' code for some vulnerabilities.
It would be best to then modify it before compiling it and using it.
But you should...

While I would think HOAX at first glance of this info, the one thing that does strike me as odd is that this warning has been posted on about a dozen differant securrity boards I visit.

I would like to add in a couple cents here,
I would NOT suggest using PC Anywhere, it has a major security flaw. They use extremely weak encryption on the initialation transmition. (unless you...

Yeah, but I don't think people would buy it/understand if we all called ourselves "Software Scientist" - which is what it more equally compairs too...
BTW nice post w0lverine,

Not sure its really a 'security' issue - more a general fix for an MS problem.
(Likewise wasn't sure it was worthy of the tut section either)
For awhile I've had a problem that when performing...

I tend to agree with this for the following reasons:
- Panda scans faster (at least every system I've tested it on)
- Panda definition updates tend to come out quicker then Norton
November 13th, 2003, 04:26 PM
Yes it could.
Many viruses create email lists from address books and html pages it finds on infected machines and then pairs off the names it finds.
I.E. if your friend A has an address book...

Just because I haven't seen it mentioned I thought it'd be worth mentioning...
One of the most common reasons I hear about for personal machines being hacked, is due to a shared interest in an...

For the most part I agree with what you said, auto-updater on by default on non-server systems sounds like it'd be a good idea and solve alot of the issues for the common user...
On the server...

IF M$ ever has their way with the world, meaning if one day everyone is running a M$ O/S and only running current M$ software on them, then there could be a good virus...
