    Re: Virus Alerts/Security Warnings/Solutions

    Did you upgrade an old 7.5 install of AVG Jimz, or was it a fresh installation?

    It seems to have anti-spyware detections built in now in version 8 and the old anti-spyware and anti-rootkit products are no more. I've only had a quick play when installing on a clients machine - that's how I noticed the new version as I completely missed any announcement

    Re: Virus Alerts/Security Warnings/Solutions

    Just installed it on my Laptop that I had installed 7.5 on last week (had to do a format and fresh install of XP after the removal of SP3 RC went south on me). AVG 8 doesn't upgrade over the top of previous versions, but uninstalls the old release and then installs 8. Went smoothly, but the new interface will take a bit of getting used to after 3+ years of the old one.

    Windows XP Service Pack 3 Released

    0 comment(s) digg_url = 'http://isc.sans.org/diary.html?storyid=4387&rss'; digg_title = 'Windows XP Service Pack 3 Released'; digg_skin='compact'; digg_topic = 'security'; Microsoft, it appears, has just released Windows XP Service Pack 3. For the most part, it is a bundle of all the updates since Service Pack 2, but there are some key differences. First, the big gotcha:
    If you are an IE 6 user, SP3 will simply updated your IE 6 installation. You will continue to be able to upgrade to IE 7 as an option.
    If you are an IE 7 user, it will update your IE 7 installation. HOWEVER, you will NOT be able to go back to IE 6 after applying this service back.
    If you are an IE 8 (beta) user, you will need to uninstall IE 8, apply the service pack, and then reinstall IE 8.
    This link has a list of all the Knowledge Base articles that this service pack addresses. Some of the bigger notes is that it does retrofit some of the Vista functionality into XP, namely in the area of Network Access Protection, Black Hole Router Detection, enhanced security for administrator and service policy entries (basically some better default settings) and a kernel mode crypto driver. Additionally, some of the "optional" updates released since SP2 will be installed with SP3 (MMC 3.0, MXSXML6, WPA2 support, etc).
    The good news is that TechNet provides installation media that can be used to slipstream install the service pack so workstations can be updated off the net.

    Re: Virus Alerts/Security Warnings/Solutions

    IMO? Deceptive google result

    Mozilla Firefox Download
    www.mozilla.com Download Firefox 2.0.0.10, Faster, Safer, & Customizable.

    at the result

    This website is not affiliated with Mozilla. However, we highly recommend the Firefox with google toolbar. It is a safe and secure browser available now and it is fast and free to download.

    Plain and simple? This does not = mozilla

    http://www.firefox-spread.com/download.htm

    Here is spread.com.

    http://www.spread.com/

    And in my opinion?
    Im not interested in any Google deal with these folks.


    -----------------------------

    Here is the real deal

    http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/

    Google can take their toolbar and stick it IMO

    0 comment(s) We received a report from Mike this afternoon about a couple of URLs containing a malicious JavaScript that pulls down a file associated with Zlob. If you do a google search for these two URLs, you get about 400,000 sites that have a call to this Javascript file included in them now. The major portion of the sites seem to be running phpBB forum software.
    If you have a proxy server that logs outbound web traffic at your site, you might want to look for connection attempts to these two sites. Internal clients that have connected may need some cleanup work. Another preventive step would be to blacklist these two URLs.
