As useful as that private test area was, it involved quite a bit of ugly hacking around with a bunch of scattered areas of the forum codebase, and in my effort to keep things clean i am hesitating porting it over.-mouser (September 10, 2015, 10:17 AM)
You could do it with Powershell by using it to do the updates rather than relying on the Windows Update application, so rather than the reactive approach in the script above it would be proactive.
ie. Powershell fetches a list of updates available, compares against a list of unwanted KBs, hides any if found, and then invokes auto-update (which will automatically skip Hidden updates), or does the other updates itself.
So goes the theory.-4wd (September 08, 2015, 08:59 PM)
On a related note, is there a convenient tool to help with preventing the installation of a specific set of updates?-ewemoa (August 28, 2015, 04:43 AM)
Seagate wireless hard-drives provides undocumented Telnet services accessible by using the default credentials of 'root' as username and the default password.
Modern OSes all use this newer method, but that older method is still in the code, but disabled, for compatibility and fail-safe purposes if it's ever needed...or someone's nutty enough to want to use it.-Innuendo (September 05, 2015, 09:51 AM)
Security experts constantly tell users not to reuse passwords on multiple accounts, but the message often falls on deaf ears. Now, officials at Mozilla are finding that advanced users don’t always follow that advice either after discovering that an attacker was able to compromise a Bugzilla user’s account by using a password taken from a data breach on a separate site.
P.S. If you know of a better browser, or one you're currently having luck with that also runs under NIX - please let me know!-40hz (August 23, 2015, 12:42 PM)
And I also added an option to bypass the search index on the advanced search form -- this will result in a slower and more thorough search for partial word matches, and is able to search for words less than 4 characters.-mouser (September 02, 2015, 06:14 PM)
check you have OMTC disabled (in about:config layers.offmainthreadcomposition.enabled should be false)

if you use IPv6, your machine may obtain an automatically allocated IPv6 address, and the scheme for creating such addresses uses MAC addresses, as described here. In that case, your MAC address can be inferred from the source address in the IP packets your machine emits.
