The thread will usually begin on the 1st of each month !! taffy's sneezing bouts precluded !!!
Good day and welcome to the new thread. It has evolved in a very short time from the Open Door and Off Topic threads... like them, it will open/close on a monthly cycle.
In the coming months: unless evolution runs away with itself:I will continue to post here,(and not in Off topic);.......... updates/warnings/articles/product info, extracted from my own browsings, mostly with a security bias.
You should note however that these articles should not be taken as recommendations; tho' I may make comment if I feel I've something within my experience to add. You are also welcome to post articles/items to thread along similar lines.
Any ,one off, response/ feedback/comment, concerning specific items within the thread is welcome; tho' the Off topic* thread should be the place for arguements/debates concerning this thread's form/direction.
I don't want the CYBERCLIPS space getting cluttered with contentious junk !
Let's see how it evolves !
Scrolling daily or monthly I doubt you'll find anything methodically funny: tho' I hope you'll return to find something informative.

Sumatra PDF is an ideal program for quickly reading PDF files. It is both small and fast.

Installation is simple and it is even possible to run it from a folder with no installation using the .zip download. A PortableApps version is also available.

There are plenty of keyboard shortcuts for browsing through documents without having to use the mouse. Advanced users can employ command-line arguments to specify which page it should open on and to change the background colour.

The publisher does admit that printing is quite slow and that this is unlikely to be fixed. Even so, Sumatra PDF is hard to beat if you want to read PDF documents onscreen without waiting around.

CClip 7 Picking up the thread.
Last post from Off topic 27/7/10 by Fred. SIW (System Information for Windows) shows (almost?) everything about Windows. I am amazed at the amount of info. It's portable too, just install to thumb drive. If you want to know something about your computer that Windows controls, this is it. http://www.gtopala.com/ (Credit Anthony for tip.)

The Firefox 3.6.8 update addresses a single vulnerability in the browser's plug-in parameter array stemming from an earlier fix to the same component.

Mozilla classifies the vulnerability as 'critical', warning that a successful exploitation could allow remote code execution.

The Chrome 5.0.375.125 update, meanwhile, covers five vulnerabilities, three rated 'high' risk, one rated 'medium' and one rated 'low'.

Apple Releases Safari 5.0.1, Introduces Extensions Gallery CClip10
By Dan Moren, Macworld

Extensions fans, rejoice! On Wednesday, Apple released Safari 5.0.1, which officially enables Safari Extensions by default, and introduced the Safari Extensions Gallery. The gallery, located on a page on Apple's site, allows users to search for extensions, browse by category, and install them with just one click if the user is running Safari 5.0.1.

Safari 5.0.1 requires Mac OS X 10.5.8, 10.6.2, or 10.6.3; on the Windows side, you'll need Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7. The update is available from Apple's support download site or via Software Update. Apple also released Safari 4.1.1, which brings many of the same fixes and security patches to users on Mac OS X 10.4.11.

CClip 16 The Internet has undergone a key upgrade that promises to stop cyber criminals from using fake websites that dupe people into downloading viruses or revealing personal data.

The agency in charge of managing Internet addresses teamed with online security services firm VeriSign and the US Department of Commerce to give websites encrypted identification to prove they are legitimate.
"This is, by any measure, an historic development," ICANN chief executive Rod Beckstrom said while breaking the news at a premier Black Hat computer security conference in Las Vegas on Wednesday.
"This security upgrade matters to everyone who uses a computer, and that means most of us."
The Domain Name System Security Extensions, referred to as DNSSEC, basically adds a secret, identifying code to each website address.

ZoneAlarm is probably the most well-known of firewalls, partly because it's free for personal use, but also because it's effective and very simple to use. This latest version now works with Windows Vista. The download is a small utility that is used to select the correct version of ZoneAlarm for your operating system.

Its main appeal stems from the fact that you can install it and forget about it, yet be securely protected from outside intrusions or attacks.

Wizards make the installation as painless as possible, and ZoneAlarm will remember your preferences once specified.

In other words, give permission for a program to access the internet and it will always allow it access in the future (unless you specify otherwise, of course).

When in Stealth Mode, ZoneAlarm renders your PCinvisible on the internet, increasing your security and privacy.

This is the latest ZoneAlarm Free v9.2 which will offer you basic firewall protection

Taskbar Meters take advantage of the improvements made to the Windows 7 taskbar.

Taskbar Meters displays a separate icon for CPU, memory and hard disk activity that gradually fills as the computer works harder.

The icons also serve as useful shortcuts to the Task Manager and Resource Monitor to get more information on how the computer is being us

The update frequency can be adjusted and you can also change the level at which the bars change colour from yellow or red to indicate utility-resource usage.

Causes of Registry Errors
Windows Registry is a database that stores crucial settings and options of the Microsoft Windows operating system. Registry entries are created for each application and driver installed on your computer. When running, a program may access the Registry thousands of times per second.
Just like any other database, the Registry becomes a real mess without proper maintenance. When you uninstall programs, invalid entries can be left behind and cause various errors. As a result your computer slows down, starts freezing, and crashing. That's why it's very important to clean the Registry regularly.

CClip 25 (CNN) -- When a series of video games is beloved by fans, it's risky for makers to put a new game in the series out for testing.
The fans can be brutal if a sequel doesn't live up to expectations about the franchise.
But sometimes the risk pays off.
Here are some of the best of the best upcoming sequels, set to be released this fall and in the spring. The list is based on interviews at the recent Comic-Con convention in San Diego, California, where professional gamers and amateurs got a chance to demo these new titles.

In a move that seems inspired by "The Lord of the Rings," seven "keys" have been handed out to a trusted circle of people who might get called upon to "save" the Internet in the aftermath of a cyber attack.

But contrary to other news reports, the seven key holders have not been vested with the power to resurrect the entire Internet should it be sabotaged by hackers.

Rather, they have been given encryption keys necessary for restoring a long-touted Internet security protocol that finally came into force earlier this month.

Call to check on mobile network security

The attack project aims to reveal the weaknesses in mobile security
Mobile phone users are being encouraged to find out if operators are doing enough to keep their calls secret.

Security researchers have released tools that, they say, make it easy to see what security systems operators use to stop eavesdropping.

The researchers want to expose those operators that have not updated security systems to prevent others listening in.

Two years and 100 mln dollars buys winning cyber army
August 1, 2010 by Glenn Chapman
A computer espionage specialist has laid out blueprints for building a cyber army capable of crashing through US defenses.

Readying an unstoppable Internet invasion would take two years and a total of 100 million dollars, according to Charlie Miller, who spent five years with the US National Security Agency under then-director Michael Hayden.
Now a researcher with Baltimore-based Independent Security Evaluators, Miller on Saturday shared his battle plan with hackers at a DefCon gathering in Las Vegas.
"I pretended North Korea asked me to scope out the job of orchestrating a cyber attack on the United States," Miller told AFP. "I lay it out as I would do it realistically."
Miller explained that he had actually been asked by the Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence in Estonia to play general in the theoretical attack scenario.
He shared his results at a NATO briefing in that country in June.
"I already knew it was easy, but now I know in detail how easy it would be," said. "We are certainly very vulnerable."
Miller described the 100-million-dollar price tag as a bargain compared to how much money is spent on cyber defense.
He crafted a broad strategy to target smart grids, banks, communications and all other aspects of a nation's technology infrastructure.
The cyber army would number about a thousand soldiers ranging from elite computer commandos to basic college trained geeks, according to the plan.

Why does broadband speed vary so much?
By Jane Wakefield
Technology reporter

The actual speeds of UK broadband services are still falling short of those advertised Ofcom has found
If you are a night owl who enjoys surfing between the hours of 4am and 6am and are fortunate enough to live on top of a telephone exchange then you are probably very happy with your broadband speeds.

Users are sticking to Windows XP CClip 39

Shun support in favour of outdated features
By Lawrence Latif
Mon Aug 02 2010, 15:44
DEVELOPER OF MERELY GOOD ENOUGH SOFTWARE Microsoft is having some trouble luring its customers off Windows XP.
Even after dumping support for Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2), they're still finding it hard to get people to move off Windows XP and onto Windows 7. According to figures released by Netmarketshare, usage of Windows Vista and Windows 7 combined fails to eclipse that of Windows XP. That's a disappointing statistic, given that Windows 7 has been available, in one way or another, for well over a year and Windows Vista has been knocking around for nearly four years.

Microsoft has issued a "critical" security update to fix a flaw in the way Windows handles shortcuts.

The bug allowed attackers to craft booby-trapped shortcuts that allow them to take over a target computer. (Many users set up shortcuts to get to programs and places in Windows that they use regularly.)

Have you installed it yet?

CClip 53 Q The Windows Narrator starts every time I turn on my Windows Vista laptop. I do not need this and have to close it before I can start using the PC.

I cannot find the setting to stop this. Can it be disabled?

Lyn Wats

A It is possible to disable the Narrator, although the setting is buried deep in the Accessibility menu. If you run the Accessibility Wizard, an accidental setting can force the PC to automatically load the Narrator or on-screen keyboard when it starts.

Tools such as the Narrator are very helpful for people who are visually impaired, but it can be annoying for those who do not need it.

To disable it, left-click on the Start Icon then click on Control Panel. Click Ease of Access, then click on Ease of Access Center. Click on Use The Computer Without a Display. Untick the box next to Turn On Narrator, then click Save.

The next time your computer starts, the Narrator will not load.

CClip 56 Q I have a new laptop running Windows Vista. I have never used a touchpad before and there seems to be some strange behaviour when I move my finger over the right and bottom edges.

There is an icon called Synaptics Pointing Device in the Notification Area. Sometimes it scrolls web pages and other times it changes the zoom level.

Jill Liv, Computeractive Forum

A The side and bottom areas of the touchpad work in the same way as a mouse wheel. Normally this means scrolling up and down but if you are pushing the Ctrl button as you slide up and down in this area it will zoom in and out.

The scrolling areas can be disabled if they are causing problems. Click on Start, Control Panel, Hardware and Sound and then Mouse. Click on the Device Settings tab.

There should only be one device in the list so click on the Settings button. Click on the Virtual Scrolling text in the left-hand column and click in the boxes to remove the ticks and disable the scrolling motion.

Private browsing modes leak data
By Mark Ward
Technology correspondent, BBC News

Most modern browsers have a private or incognito mode
The private browsing modes on modern browsers leak information about where people have visited, suggests a study.

Available in many browsers, the private modes are not supposed to log information about sites visited.

However, the study found that in many cases the privacy mode was compromised by additions to the browser or extra security on websites.

Many extras that people add to browsers can "completely undermine" the anonymity of private browsing.

Whether your web browser is 32-bit or 64-bit is a minor factor in speed
Can I use Flash with 64-bit Internet Explorer?
Flash is not yet compatible with 64-bit Internet Explorer, so what's the solution?
Written by Computeractive staff, Computeractive
09 Aug 2010
Q I recently bought a new computer with the 64-bit version of Windows 7 installed, which comes with both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Internet Explorer. I use the 64-bit version, but when browsing the web I keep receiving messages saying the website wants to install Adobe Flash Player.

I click OK, then a message appears saying that Flash Player will not install because it requires a 32-bit browser. Are there any drawbacks of switching to the 32-bit version, and will it be slower?

Privacy top concern as users customize, personalize online experiences
August 9, 2010
Although many Internet services and sites allow customization and personalization that make visits online more efficient and enjoyable, two recent studies found that privacy concerns limit how both the most technology-savvy users and those with less expertise utilize opportunities to customize or personalize their online experiences.

Malware is at record levels

So says McAfee
By Spencer Dalziel
Tue Aug 10 2010, 17:01
SIX MILLION malware infected systems have been found by the insecurity experts at McAfee over the last quarter, while spam volumes have leveled out.
McAfee's quarterly Threat Report said malware rocketed due to cybercriminals tapping into World Cup scamming, resurrected botnets and USB vulnerabilities.
The report claims that malware hit its highest recorded levels while spam grew by only 2.5 per cent since the first quarter of 2010.

Adobe has patched six 'critical' vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player from version 10.1.53.64 downwards, warning that the flaws could allow attackers to take control of a user's system.

The company said in a security bulletin that Flash Player users should update to version 10.1.82.76, while users of Adobe AIR 2.0.2.12610 and earlier should update to Adobe AIR 2.0.3.

The issues are common across Flash Player on Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Solaris, and attackers could use memory corruption vulnerabilities to allow remote code execution or click-jacking attacks.

Adobe credited a handful of security researchers and organisations for bringing the issues to its attention, including the US Computer Emergency Response Team and TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative which pays a bounty for discoveries.

Adobe has also provided fixes for ColdFusion versions 8.0, 8.0.1, 9.0, 9.0.1 and earlier on Windows, Macintosh and Unix. The problems could lead to information disclosure, and Adobe recommends that users update immediately.

Finally, the company has issued patches for critical Flash Media Server vulnerabilities which could allow an attacker run code on an infected system.

The growing use of graphics cards as surrogate supercomputers could spell trouble for users of short passwords.

Researchers say the growing number of processors on graphics cards will soon make it trivial for them to crack short passwords.

A password of seven characters or less will soon be "hopelessly inadequate" they claim. The researchers suggest passwords should be at least 12 characters long to be safe.

Hi Taffy;

Sorry to hear about mogs' bad luck. Hope he's back soon.

Looked at the BBC article you mention. What they fail to notice is who's driving the car (so to speak). Most all major companies that 'make things', that require a video player, use Flash for several reason. I'll list the biggies here:

> Adobe CS5, they have it.
> Adobe CS5, they know how to use it.
> This suite has everything they want in one place.
> Flash Player is already on most all PC's and Mac's.
> Flash Player is cross platform, including Linux.
> Flash Player is supported by Adobe not them.
> If something goes wrong, they call Adobe support, not their 'fault'.

That's just off the top of my head.

HTML5 will not (in my opinion) be a cure all remedy. Instead of one major supplier of a video player, there will be many. HTML5 is going to be Open Source, that means there may be different versions. (I support Open Source programming, BTW.) Adobe has announced HTML5 for Dreamweaver, their website development tool. http://cs5.org/?p=1028 Possibly turning out a 'Flash HTML5' in the future? Who knows?

What ever happens, I must say that I have change my attitude toward Adobe. They used to be totally unresponsive to security problems with their 'free' readers & players and such. Much easier to create a .pdf reader or processor, that is not a copyright infringement, than something to replace Flash. When some smaller companies discovered they could use Foxit Reader (among others) and then found Foxit Phantom could replace Acrobat, Adobe took notice. Their policy of 'we're the only game in town' changed to, 'we should be more responsive to the needs of our smaller customers'. Admittedly, the desire to keep almost all the market share is the driving motivation. At least now they appear to wish to update their free stuff promptly and also make it easier to accomplish.

Hope I've not went on too much. Just thought you might be interested.

Hey Ant;

My one trivial concern with an open source vid player is that, this version will work with this website and not the other. This may leave us with multiple vid players, on our systems, to maintain. Oh well, will give Secunia Auto Updates something to do I suppose. :)

Answer is: Maybe, as stated above, Adobe is already adopting/developing HTML5 in an add in package for Dreamweaver (It's called "Citrus", I believe.) Haven't check anyone else.

Closed 'Aspirin' after the bazooka attack to miceyi. (Forget my double barrel.)

I pop in occasionally to skim. I click on it and take the dogs out, usually loaded by the time we get back. :)

SSSHHHH , Fred ,

As Mogs is not back and the taaff is sleeping , I'll add that Google are looking to bin gears and seem to be staying close to Adobe because , I am told , they will need Flash and HTML 5 to run Chrome as an OS type system and run apps direct in the "browser desktop" ; probably need AIR or it's replacement as well for offline stuff.

Another wrinkle is that Oracle are suing Google over using mobile Java in Android (or something like that) so Open Source will have to take care of it's back , that's for sure and they have all the weight :)) of my support !!

@Taf, Good morning sunshine, but I guess it's afternoon there. Getting kind of late here, I really should be elsewhere. Tell mogs, if you call, my dial-up is only $10 US and is almost always up. On the fritz twice in five years and both times for about a day. Seriously, if & when I can get DSL, I will probably keep dial-up for a backup.


Better get going;

Regular checks are so important, as the more experienced here will tell you.

After seeing advice in this forum from Anthony Wells, I use Belarc to check that my Microsoft programs are up to date:

http://belarc.com/free_download.html

I also use File Hippo's free Update Checker. It appears to be quite a busy spell for updates - after all the Microsoft & Adobe criticals, File Hippo found eight programs that I needed to update.

http://www.filehippo.com/

So, to repeat the question:
Are your programs up to date?

PS I agree with you, Anthony about finding a better way to keep track of all of these updates. Mogs does too.

Firefox 4 beta 4 gets GPU acceleration

And tab candy too
By Spencer Dalziel
Fri Aug 20 2010, 14:15
A HOST OF GOODIES have been announced by Mozilla in the beta 4 version of Firefox 4, including GPU acceleration.
The open source software outfit revealed the updates in its online minutes report and set a release date for this next beta version of next Monday. The beta bump comes a mere couple of weeks after multi-touch support was addressed in beta 3 for "intuitive fun and browsing", no less.
Hardware GPU acceleration is being coded into nearly every web browser so this announcement isn't too much of a surprise.
"Hardware acceleration of video and other HTML and SVG content, as well as user interface, on by default for compatible hardware on all Tier-1 desktop and mobile platforms," blogged the Mozzarella Firebadger 4 development team.

Many operating systems enable you to take a basic grab of your desktop. Within Windows, you can press the 'Print Screen' button on your keyboard and that should take an instant grab of your entire screen.

However, this doesn't always work and isn't always the best way to grab your desktop. Sometimes you might find that some applications (widgets, perhaps) don't show when you use this function.

If you want to grab a particular section of your desktop, such as a particular application, grabbing the entire screen is overkill and requires a lot of system resources if you've got a large monitor.

Screenshot Captor is a free tool that enables you to take a grab of your entire screen, a specific window or simply a section of the screen. It's a superb little tool that competes with the commercial screen-grabbing tools on the market.

SAN FRANCISCO - A US cyber security firm on Wednesday warned that hackers using a sophisticated "Zeus" virus were siphoning cash from online accounts at a British financial institution.

Cyber thieves have made off with more than a million dollars (675,000 pounds) since early July and "the attack is still progressing," California-based M86 Security said in a warning online Wednesday.

BOSTON, July 7 (Reuters) - Sun Microsystems Inc will distribute an Internet-based PC backup service from tiny industry pioneer Carbonite, which competes with tech industry giants EMC Corp and Symantec Corp.
They are battling for dominance in a fledgling market that technology research firm Gartner projects will grow to about $820 million in 2013 from $300 million last year. The services use the Internet to copy important PC data onto remote servers.
Boston-based Carbonite said on Tuesday that Sun will offer U.S. customers a free one-month trial of the backup service when they download or update Sun's widely used Java software for personal computers.

Web scam hits iTunes and Paypal users
By Maggie Shiels
Technology reporter, BBC News, Silicon Valley

iTunes app store has millions of users
ITunes accounts linked to Paypal have been targeted in a scam with a number of users complaining that they have been cleaned out.

Apple and Paypal refused to discuss the details of the incident.

Experts told the BBC that victims had most likely fallen for an e-mail scam, rather than being targeted via a flaw in iTunes or Apple servers.

"I just got hacked for $1,000 worth of software, videos and music," tweeted one victim.

Just as regular exercise is good for your health, a regular workout for your hard disk is recommended. Windows has its own tools for doing this, but CCleaner makes a slightly better job of it.

Alan McGuinness, Sky News Online
The launch of an application on Facebook has led to a surge of abuse reports on the website, according to figures.


Users can access the panic button by downloading a Facebook app
More than 200 users have clicked on the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (Ceop) link to report suspicious behaviour since it was introduced on July 12.
The ClickCeop button appears on a user's homepage after they install the application, which has been downloaded 55,000 times.
In the month before its launch, only 28 people reported abuse through the social networking site.
Facebook bowed to intense pressure to install the application after the death of teenager Ashleigh Hall.

Scammers are exploiting FedEx's global brand
Malware hiding behind phoney FedEx messages
Malicious email attachment delivers infection
Written by Shaun Nichols in San Francisco, V3.co.uk

Security experts are issuing warnings following the discovery of a malware scam using email attachments.

The attack uses emails claiming to be from delivery service FedEx. The message claims that the user was unable to receive a package due to an address error and instructs users to print out an attached form to claim the package.

The attachment, however, contains a malicious .zip file which, when opened, triggers the malware attack. Security firm Sunbelt Software identified the malware as zbot.
