1  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Need SSL Certificate Recomendations on: Today at 06:53:30 AM
SS is not an option as this is for public facing production systems. If it was for the internal systems I wouldn't even bother with the annoying theatrical nonsense. It just baffles me beyond reason why everything to do with SSL has to be so god damn complicated. If the point of the certificate is to validate me...then it should trust the me it is validating to renew the silly thing without having to go through a bunch of horse shit to yet again confirm that I am indeed still the me that I was when I was being me last time.

I mean FFS if they can't even trust the validity of their own certificate to ensure that the me that is posing as I is truly the as to be certified me ... Then what good is the damn thing!

I'm just wondering if it's even worth setting Bing as default search engine.

I've been using Bing as my default search engine for the last 6 months or so and have been quite happy with it.

I'm just curious if anyone really actively participates in this promotion because I'm trying it.

This I decided was not going to be worth the effort. I did not try it...I just read through the spiel and decided not to.

Shit. Sad I was hoping you guys had a viable alternative. I just don't know what kind of crazy assed hoops the next guy is going to want to put me through. So with my luck -(with SSL)- the odds of going from the frying pan to the fire are ~50/50. I'd love to find one that would issue a 20 year certificate...so I never ever have to suffer through this inane nonsense ever again.

Christ, every time you turn around there is yet another huge gaping assed hole in the damn thing (like the latest Apple/Google 'FREAK' Attack Security Vulnerability). And even on the rare good days the NSA (et al.) has turned it into nothing more than a sad joke anyway.

Is there any reason why they couldn't just use a burner phone for the account signup and then toss it? If the phone isn't required for subsequent logins then it really isn't accomplishing anything ... It's just security theater.
5  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Need SSL Certificate Recomendations on: March 03, 2015, 01:48:55 PM
Greetings
   I've been using a Start.com/Start SSL for our Exchange server, but the renewal process is a nightmare. I really don't have time to waste gathering up and submitting a bunch of prove it's me/us documentation every time the cert expires. Is suffering through these types of shenanigans "normal" for SSL cert renewal?? Or is there some place that I can just pay a renewal fee and get the damn thing extended.

   Why does everything to do with SSL have to suck so ridiculously hard?? I swear they had to have been created by the DMV!
6  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Super Annoying Freezing Mouse (and Keyboard) - can ANYONE help, PLEASE!? on: March 03, 2015, 12:54:03 PM
I ran into exactly that last week on a brand new fresh from the box Dell server running Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard. Both the keyboard and mouse stopped responding at the console, but if I logged into it via Remote Desktop to worked fine.

I didn't have time to fiddle with the damn thing (server...), so I just replaced both (keyboard and mouse) and it has worked fine ever since.

Probably not what you want to hear...but might be worth considering. Maybe borrow a friends for testing purposes if no spare is available.
7  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: wireless networking and wifi printer help on: March 03, 2015, 07:04:31 AM
The Mac is reliant on the rather loquacious Bonjour protocol, which frequently needs to be disabled on Windows networks because it quite consistently screws up name resolution.

The much more sedate windows name resolution (NetBIOS) frequently suffers at the hands of overzealous security software blocking the name broadcasts causing them to not resolve. Typically this is mitigated by using a static address for the printer, and pointing the print driver's port at the static address.

Other possibility is the very not ready for prime time WSD port technology that causes a 20-45 second lag in the print jobs...or just fails causing much anguish for all. We -(or more specifically I)- do not allow printer installs to be left with (the sadly now default) WSD ports because of the almost 100% failure rate of the technology.

Note: Failure rate above is based on the number of time something either didn't connect frequently, or just started lagging bad enough to piss people off, within a month of the initial install. Most people snap in the 10-15 second range.

I guess this is a new product maybe?  Anyway it said it was to be used as I am using it.

That's still a strictly client side filter. It is not designed to be filtering traffic that is going to a server. It has a server component...yes ... But that is only for the centralized management of the client machines, and their client side traffic. If anything it may be getting confused by site requests flipping between internal and external IP addresses...causing it to FP.

I just wanted to see if "I" could block the IP address myself without depending on MBAM to do it.
on OUR web server we used to have a program called IP-BAN that would let you specific whole groups of IP's to simply deny access to to avoid DOS attacks

We are not having issues it just annoys me to see the MBAM waring popup

Okay... O_o How is MBAM responding to activity that is happening on the web (which is now sort of an FTP) server?? Are you running MBAM on the server itself? Because it's really not for that - unless you're talking about an entirely different MBAM than I'm thinking of.

I've got much the same problem in reverse trying to help a local school admin block YouTube on their network. I really think these "Social" Networks pull this kind of shit intentionally just to make filtering it more (and completely unnecessarily) difficult - Can U say 'Scattered to the four winds"?:

Um...

Tghis is a small website that is only up for the people who work here to use.

So now we go from singular...

That seems like kind of an odd thing to need for a web server ... How much unwanted traffic are you getting??

Chances are if it's that high, there is a reason for it that needs to be solved...not filtered.

not so much but it is annoying to see malwarebytes blocking a single ip as Malicious when it hits the sites over and over.
there are 100 sites total on one server

...To incredibly not singular.

Which compels me to re-stress the initial question ... What problem are we trying to solve??

I can't fathom that you have 100 sites for employee use only. So I'm guessing that you have a single site on a shared host for the staff to use. And under the as described circumstances...that's very (very...) bad...for your companies domain name.

Here's why: Some Email black lists - most actually - work off the IP address given in the MX records only. However others - and by that I mean just enough to really screw you royally - work off of the IP address of the root domain name. So, if MBAM - a strictly client side filter - is flagging your employee site domain name, then Your Mail Server IS Black Listed by those filters that block based on the reputation of the root domain name.

I'm currently going through this with one of our clients. Their Email - which is hosted by MS Exchange Online (e.g. Microsoft itself) - has a completely flawless reputation. Yet they consistently get blacklist rejections from certain domains that use the root domain based filtering, because their website is currently hosted on a shared host that has a hacked website that got the IP address they are all behind blacklisted. You don't need an IP filter...you need a new host.

In our normal base 10, we have a protocol for SPEAKING large numbers, so 154 is "one hundred and fifty four".

IIRC you aren't supposed to say and when speaking numbers...did that change?
14  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Pick a number between 1 and 10 on: February 27, 2015, 12:09:34 PM
A key part of the bit is that you're only allowed to ask one question.
15  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Pick a number between 1 and 10 on: February 27, 2015, 06:49:53 AM
IIRC who you ask is irrelevant, you ask one guard what the other would say and then do the opposite. Because the liar would give the wrong answer (by nature), and the truth teller would give the liars lie.

A hardware jumper to enable any firmware flashing seems like a great idea for all devices.

hey!  I like that!

I did too initially, but I don't think it will scale well for data centers that have (SAN) racks full of drives that would then need to be physically touched.

On behalf of all of us who use it, thank you for your work on it Two_toNe!!!!  Kiss Kiss Kiss

A big +1 to that! Two_toNe's work on T-Clock helped me immensely in getting it past the x64 hurdle.

But just to keep the record straight, White Tiger is the T-Clock's current curator, as I bowed out due to time constraints about a year ago.

There are 100 or so certificates (including 27 "Untrusted certificates") installed on my system - and I think that my anti-malware should tell me if they're OK or not.

Why? SSL Certs only serve to verify the identity of the entity on the other end of a connection ... Not the purity of their intentions..

Microsoft RDP is also the only thing that's ever shown me exactly the same thing as I see on the computers monitor unlike various forms of VNC I've tried.

Same here, I've been sold on TS/RDP since the NT4 days ... I just never thought of trying it with/from a phone. But... I guess I'll have to give it a shot (eek!).


Do I understand it correctly that it only works with pro/ultimate and server versions of Windows?

Yes, but there is a hack/patch available to enable it in/for Home Premium (I've never tried it).
