    Microsoft Security Response Center

    -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

    Periodically we hear people say they tried to contact Microsoft about
    a product or service vulnerability and that Microsoft didn't respond.
    We are concerned that people may not know how to report security
    vulnerabilities to Microsoft.

    The Microsoft Security Response Center investigates all reports of
    security vulnerabilities affecting Microsoft products. If you believe
    you have found a security vulnerability affecting a Microsoft
    product, we'd like to work with you to investigate it.

    You can contact the Microsoft Security Response Center by emailing
    secure@microsoft.com directly, or you can submit your report via our
    web-based vulnerability reporting form located at
    https://www.microsoft.com/technet/tr...rl=/technet/se
    curity/bulletin/alertus.asp.

    Sincerely,
    Microsoft Security Response Center

    Thanks for the heads up.

    More companies should do something like that- clearly define a single point of contact (SPOC) for reporting security issues.

    It would be nice if there was a directory of such SPOC's listed at the security sites like SecurityFocus or even on the AO main page in the links on the right side of the screen.

    Maybe something like that already exists and I am just clueless, but I do hear all the time people saying that they tried to report an issue and that they couldn't figure out who to contact or their message fell on deaf ears.

    Actually - no it doesn't look familiar. When I first tried to look at the link I got a blank page.

    The reason is that I run ZoneAlarm Pro so I never see any pop-up or pop-under ads on web sites or even banner ads- they are all blocked.

    I am well aware that About.com is pop-up hell. Even though they make money from the advertising and I get paid by them I have written an article on how to block the ads and I have links to a number of freeware pop-up blockers.

    I highly recommend that people visit my site- but I recommend even more that everyone run some sort of pop-up ad blocker.

    I think just about every Guide at About.com has some sort of pop-up blocker installed. We have to try and work on the site which is a royal pain in the ass with a new window popping up every 5 seconds.

    Web sites, including About.com, need to find some less-annoying, less-intrusive means of advertising. In general I am OK with banner ads, but I don't want any windows opening and cluttering my desktop or stealing the focus from what I am actually trying to do or see.

    I definitely recommend everyone use something- either a specific pop-up blocker application (for free ones see Free Pop-up and Messenger Spam Blocking Software )or some sort of firewall that includes pop-up blocking (like ZA Pro)

    As for the execs at About.com- I'd be willing to bet they either never go look at the site or they have pop-up blockers installed as well. :-)

    coolkid.no-ip.com <<< this is a gag site and it is okay to look at it if u can close a window at the taskbar and have a popup blocker<<<<<another excellent reason to use a popup blocker<<<<this site may be THE MICROSOFT SECURITY RESPONSE SITE
    the only way to fix it is to flush it all away-tool
