  • A look at Microsoft’s SIR v14

    So…. I finally had a chance to finish reading the latest full edition of Microsoft’s latest Security Intelligence Report. There’s a lot of really good info in the report. The executive summary also does a good job of highlighting key points.  That said, I had a couple of observations of my own that others might find interesting.   ...

  • The Dangers of Consolidation

    It has been said that technology in general, and automation in particular, simply make it easier for humans to propagate errors much faster than they could otherwise do so. This morning, I awoke to find that none of my scripts – on any of my machines – had executed overnight.  Hmmmm?!? Initially, I only thought that it was two scripts that ...

  • Home Network Overhaul 2010 – Conclusion

    This is the sixth part in a series of articles tracking the implementation of virtualization on my home network.  Planning for the project originally started at the end of 2007, with some equipment purchased in early 2008, but the bulk of the work was completed in the past 2 months. For those interested in seeing how this all played out over ...

  • More Technology Goodness Today

    There were some excellent technology releases today.  The two I care about the most are Microsoft Windows 7, and the latest update of XeeSM from Xeequa. I expect Windows 7 to be big, big, big in the next few months, and I’ll be dedicating a solid post before the end of the year to talk about the installations I have done.  32-bit and ...

  • Another Zero-Day Vulnerability for IE

    Well, it’s been a while since we’ve had an active zero-day in Internet Explorer, but according to Microsoft Security Advisory 972890, that’s what we’re looking at:  a vulnerability in DirectX that allows for unauthenticated, remote execution attacks via Internet Explorer.  In other words, drive-by attacks. This vulnerability impacts ...

  • We’re Back In The Worm Zone

    The Conficker worm continues to make headlines, not only because it has been so elusive over the past 5 or so months, but because it is configured to do something special on April 1, 2009.  For a disturbingly large number of individuals and organizations, it could prove to be a not-so-happy day. You can read up on the anticipated April 1 ...

  • Yes, Security Is Still Important in 2009

    Quite frankly, it’s even more important than it has been in the past.   This morning, I was reading some articles on information security, including news about the Conficker worm.  You know, we haven’t had a really good worm in 3 or 4 years, so it seems that people have forgotten about how dangerous those things can be, and how ...

  • It’s Time To Look At Windows 7

    Microsoft has released a beta of its new OS, Windows 7, as well as some details about its functionality. If you want to install the beta, you should start with this information from TechNet.  Even more detail is provided by Mark Russinovich, with his Inside Windows 7 interview.  Here is an excerpt from this article: One very ...

  • Will You Be Testing Windows version 7?

    I’m interested in finding out how many people want to test Windows 7, either for their home networks or their business networks (small or large). I have created a poll via LinkedIn where I hope to capture this information.  If you are a LinkedIn user, please feel free to participate. Thanks!

  • Windows XP Service Pack 3

    As reported by ComputerWorld, the latest Service Pack for Windows XP, SP3, is finally available via the MSDN and TechNet download sites. This is only for the 32-bit version of XP, btw.  Users of XP x64 will need to wait for Service Pack 3 for Windows Server 2003 in order to get an update, as the 64-bit version of XP (non-Itanium version) is ...

  • Get your dose of Vista Service Pack 1

    If you're a 64-bit Vista user, that is...  It looks as though the users of Vista x64 can obtain Service Pack 1 via Windows Update. I've already started down the MSDN path for obtaining the Service Pack, but that has presented its own set of issues.  (TechNet is also another option for obtaining the Service Pack for x86 or x64 ...
