Well, apart from a rickety start to the previous "edition"; the CCLIP transition has gone quite smoothly. Support, as measured by readers/views, continues, with thanks to all.
I will start to try to differentiate between Alert/Product/Information/Update entries, this month.....making a relevant note of such, in the post's heading....it may help if you need to search for an entry
I should reiterate that no entry/post should be taken as a personal recommendation, unless otherwise stated.
Please continue to keep CYBERCLIPS free of junk/litter and unattractive to any contentious individuals; whilst, at the same time feeling disposed towards posting suitable content, and one-off comment yourself.
Have a Cybersafe September everybody !

A new type of malware speaks many tongues, as it crawls around instant messaging services.
By Eric Doyle, 31 Aug 2010 at 11:59

Kaspersky Lab has found a new breed of computer worm that spreads through instant messaging (IM) clients. These include Yahoo Messenger, Skype, Paltalk Messenger, ICQ, Windows Live Messenger, Google Talk and the XFire client used by online gamers.

The research team have found four variants which affect Windows systems. When one of these worms, generically named IM-Worm.Win32.Zeroll, infects a client, it searches for the contact list and sends itself in disguise to all the addressees. The recipient sees a message from the infected machine with a link to an image which turns out to be a malicious file.

Solving Your Annoying Internet Explorer Troubles
By Jay Dougherty
August 31, 2010 9:47AM


Internet Explorer is likely the most popular web browser around, but users have numerous gripes, such as fixing settings to comfortable levels and securing passwords and usernames. Third-party tools such as the free IE New Window Maximizer make it easy to set your options over how IE launches, including the ability to close pop-ups.


Love it or hate it, Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE), by most estimates, still commands the lion's share of the browser market. That means a lot of people spend a lot of their day using the browser, and a lot of people encounter problems they'd like to solve. Here are a few.
Q: Internet Explorer opens up in a different size and position each time I start it. I would like it to open up maximized. How can I do this?

What Is Puran Defrag? - A Disk Defragmenter
The files saved on your hard disk will become fragmented for various reasons. Because of this, your hard disk is extra busy gathering data from different fragments located at various locations on the hard disk in order to access your files. This process degrades your hard disk performance and overall system speed which gets gradually worse over time. In addition, the read/write speed of your hard disk varies by location and the files on your hard disk are randomly distributed. Therefore, you lose any potential speed gains from other system optimization programs.

Puran Defrag provides the solution! Puran Defrag is a very simple disk defragmenter which will defrag the files and optimize your system, collecting all the fragments of a file and putting them together, as well as moving some frequently used files and all directories to faster disk areas. This process boosts your hard disk performance and thus overall system speed. In addition it reduces wear and tear on your hard disk, thereby increasing its life span.


Main Features
Puran Intelligent Optimizer - PIOZR
Directories Consolidation for speed boost
Optimization by Freeing Space
Automatic Defragmentation for worry free defrag
Boot Time Defragmentation for system files like MFT
Low Priority Defrag for work while defrag experience
Individual File/Folder Defrag for selective defrag
GUI and Console Command Line Defrag Supported
Restart/Shutdown After Boot Time Defragmentation
File/Folder Exclusion or exclusion by wildcard facility
Native support for 64Bit Windows
Supports Windows Xp/2003/Vista/2008/7

Microsoft updates a security wrapper for dodgy code

Comes in after developers have given up
By Lawrence Latif
Fri Sep 03 2010, 15:56
SECURITY CONSCIOUS USERS will be given a helping hand by using a toolkit from that fortress of highly secure software, Microsoft.
The Vole has updated its Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET), a piece of software that aims to plug potential security holes in third party software. This second version of the Microsoft toolkit provides two mitigation techniques that should help harried Windows systems administrators try to contain things when applications go awry.
Export address table access filtering and mandatory address space layout randomization are fairly standard security techniques and combine with others in the previous EMET release that included technologies such as dynamic data execution prevention. EMET is supposed to be particularly useful for those legacy programs that cannot be recompiled to make use of Microsoft's latest security hacks, er, techniques.
Microsoft's decision to provide a security wrapper for applications is a pretty damning indictment of the attention Windows applications developers pay to security. It's clear that software such as EMET is not the best way to implement security, however Microsoft should be given some credit for at least trying to tackle shoddy coding practices that expose the vulnerabilities in its hairball operating systems.

How to diagnose and fix blue screen of death crashes
Debugging explained
By Mike Williams
8 hours ago | Tell us what you think [ 1 comments ]

The dreaded BSOD can be a pain, but if you know what to look for then we can help prevent them from happening
There's nothing quite as frustrating. One moment you're working at your PC, the next your screen turns blue and your system reboots, destroying all unsaved work. Then, an hour or so later, it happens again. What's going on?

To diagnose and fix blue-screen crashes you need to know what is causing them. But don't expect Windows to help.

Head off to 'Problem Reports and Solutions' in Vista, for instance, and you'll typically see useless crash descriptions like 'Windows shut down suddenly'. Gee, thanks. Fortunately there's a free alternative: Microsoft's debugger, WinDbg.

BBC iPlayer gets even better
Post categories: iplayer
James Hewines | 16:15 UK time, Friday, 3 September 2010
The BBC iPlayer team are very excited about the latest developments going live next week - this is a big step for the product, and its users, bringing:

A new design which is more fun to use, and distinctively styled.
A range of personalisation features that let you shape your very own BBC iPlayer experience.
Integration with your social network account that lets you add a social dimension to your viewing and listening.
You can find out more about the new features in Anthony Rose's post.

Less obviously, to make all of this personalisation work well for 5m+ visitors each week, we've developed an entirely new technical platform, discussed in technical architect Simon Frost's post. It's been an exciting project with many challenges, both design and engineering, along the way.

Power-hungry PCs can make for an inflated electricity bill and make more of an impact on the environment than today's green-conscious consumer is comfortable with. The good news is that options abound to reduce the power consumption of your PC. The bad news is that it's sometimes difficult to know which power-saving options to use.

Spam Worm Rapidly Propagating on Facebook

Adjust text size:
September 7th, 2010, 07:20 GMT| By Lucian Constantin





Spammers are exploiting an undisclosed Facebook vulnerability to force users to automatically post rogue messages on their walls when opening a maliciously crafted app page.

"I thought this survey stuff was GARBAGE but i just went on a shopping spree at walmart thanks to FB = [URL] , this wont last long so gooo!" or "I thought this survey stuff was BULL** but i swear I just used the Best Buy giftcard they sent me here [URL] to buy a laptop!" are two examples of messages the victims are posting.


It seems that simply opening any of the spammed links while logged into Facebook is enough to get compromised and automatically add the rogue application to your profile.

A new mass injection attack has compromised tens of thousands of websites with code that directs visitors to rogue antivirus programs.

The new attack was detected and reported by security researchers from Websense, a provider of Web and email security solutions.


"Websense ThreatSeeker Network detected this large-scale break out of the campaign recently. The targets are four well-known Web hosting providers: BlueHost, DreamHost, Bizland and Go Daddy," the Websense experts note.

During last week the number of affected sites varied from 22,000 to almost 39,000 depending on the day, with BlueHost being the most affected hosting company.

Statistics compiled by Websense reveal that BlueHost accounted for 38% of compromised sites and was followed by DreamHost with 28%, BizLand with 19% and Go Daddy with 12%.

The attack involves a rogue <script> element being added just before the end of the page body, with the src attribute loading content from several remote addresses.

This external code checks if the user was targeted before and if not it redirects them to websites in the .co.cc domain space, which display fake antivirus warnings commonly associated with scareware campaigns.

The purpose of these bogus alerts is to convince users to install rogue antivirus program, which further bombards them with fictitious warnings in an attempt to trick them into paying license fees.

Two of the malicious domains involved in this attack, whereisdudescars.com and losotrana.com, have participated in a similar mass compromise back in July.

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.

It's just predictive text with search
By Rob Coppinger
Wed Sep 08 2010, 19:17
A WOPPING 5 SECONDS per search can be saved by Google users if they use the company's Google Instant service that is available from today for computers and later this year for mobile devices.
Instant will immediately start searching using a predictive text style user interface that does not require the user to hit enter to produce search results. As well as search outcomes, the user gets suggested search terms and using the down cursor key those can be selected. Hitting the search button will truncate the search to just what users typed in.
From today, Instant is available to all users on google.com in English and to signed-in users in Germany, France, Spain, Italy. Russia and the UK, which of course also speaks English. Other countries, such as Japan, will get Instant in the coming months. Instant works on Chrome v5/6, Firefox v3, Safari v5 for Mac and Internet Explorer v8 and Instant can be found here now.

Two thirds of web users hit by cyber crime
Web threats are so prevalent that 65 per cent of online users have been hit by an attack, figures show.
By Tom Brewster, 9 Sep 2010 at 12:15

Almost two-thirds of people in the world have been hit by cyber crime in some capacity, be it from viruses, credit card fraud or identity theft, a report has shown.

The most serious threat by far is malware, which was responsible for 51 per cent of cyber crimes affecting victims surveyed by Norton.

One in four gives fake net names

People are nearly as likely to be web criminals as to be victims of them
More than a quarter of people online have lied about their name and more than one in five has done something online they regret, says a new report.

The behavioural and psychological impacts of online life are outlined in a report from the security firm Norton.

The report suggests that two-thirds of web users have been hit by cybercrime, with the costs and time to resolve the crime varying widely around the world.

But a large amount of online dishonesty came from the respondents themselves.

Seventeen per cent of respondents to Norton's survey had lied online about their age or where they lived, while 9% lied about their financial or relationship status and 7% about their appearance.

The study, "Norton Cybercrime Report: The Human Impact", reveals telling details not only about the proportion of web users struck by cybercrime, but the disparity among countries as to the costs to each cybercrime victim.

Adobe warns that a new critical zero-day vulnerability affecting its Reader and Acrobat products is actively being exploited in the wild to compromise computers.

The company has published a Security Advisory about the flaw, identified as CVE-2010-2883 and for which public exploit code is available.


"A critical vulnerability exists in Adobe Reader 9.3.4 and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh and UNIX, and Adobe Acrobat 9.3.4 and earlier versions for Windows and Macintosh.

"This vulnerability (CVE-2010-2883) could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system. There are reports that this vulnerability is being actively exploited in the wild," Adobe writes.

There are no mitigation instructions available at the moment, but the company is working with security vendors to add detection for the exploit in their products. Therefore, users are strongly encouraged to keep their antivirus programs up to date.

Adobe thanks malware researcher Mila Parkour, who maintains the Contagio malware dump blog, for reporting the attack and working with its security team on the issue.

Meanwhile, the company is looking into scheduling a security update to resolve this vulnerability, which will probably be released out of band.

Since July 2009 Adobe Reader and Acrobat are supposed to follow a uniform quarterly update cycle, but the developer was forced to break out of it in order to patch zero-day flaws four times already.

Zero-Day Adobe Reader Exploit Drops Digitally Signed Malware


September 9th, 2010, 07:50 GMT| By Lucian Constantin





Security researchers from Kaspersky Lab warn that malware dropped by the latest PDF-based attacks is digitally signed with a certificate stolen from a credit union.

The new attacks targeting a zero-day vulnerability in Adobe Reader seems to become more sophisticated by the hour.


One of the exploits uses return-oriented programming (ROP), a relatively new technique aimed at bypassing the ASRL and DEP technologies, which prevent the execution of unauthorized code in Windows Vista and 7.

Flash Player Vulnerable to Remote Binary Planting Attacks


September 10th, 2010, 18:36 GMT| By Lucian Constantin





The latest patched version of Flash Player is vulnerable to a type of attack known as remote binary planting or DLL preloading.

According to information disclosed by an outfit called the YGN Ethical Hacker Group, attackers can force Flash Player to execute arbitrary code by placing a rogue file named dwmapi.dll on the Desktop.


Apparently the plug-in attempts to load dwmapi.dll (Microsoft Desktop Window Manager API) each time Flash content is accessed inside the browser.

About 57,000 seemingly legitimate websites booby-trapped by hackers spring up on the Internet each week, computer security researchers at PandaLabs said. The online traps are often made to look like versions of legitimate bank, auction, or shopping websites, according to the team at Spain-based Panda Security.

Ofcom looks to simplify broadband switching policies

A full half of people get more than one telecoms service as part of a bundle
Telecommunications watchdog Ofcom has found that nearly half of consumers think that changing their broadband or landline provider is "too much hassle".

Ofcom is now suggesting a system in which a new provider "takes the lead" in performing the switch.

However, Ofcom notes it must protect consumers from the growing practice of "slamming" in which the switch occurs without the consumer's consent.

Ofcom is engaged in a consultation on the issue and welcomes public comment.

Dell will stop offering Windows XP

Under orders from Microsoft
By Lawrence Latif

HOT OFF its recovery of second place on the PC sales charts, Dell has announced that it will stop selling boxes loaded with Microsoft's Windows XP.
The move, outlined on Dell's blog, points the finger at Microsoft forcing Dell's decision rather than the firm actively trying to flog the Vole's latest operating system. It says that Microsoft has told OEM system vendors like Dell to stop shipping machines with Windows XP Home or Professional after October 22 2010 and, not surprisingly, Dell has complied.

Google Chrome Canary Build

Google Chrome's team added a new releases channel for early adopters and developers: Canary builds. Unlike the beta channel and the dev channel, Canary builds can be installed without overwriting a regular Chrome build. That means you can install both a Canary build and a regular build that could be on the stable, beta or dev channel.

The Canary build is only available for Windows, it's "installed to a different path, gets updated separately, and runs side by side with an existing stable/beta/dev installation". Google says that the Canary build will usually be the same as the dev build. "Sometimes if necessary, we may push additional updates on Canary build so its version is higher than dev."

Change the passswords Firefox stores
How do I manage saved passwords in Firefox?
Change stored passwords in the Firefox web browser
Written by Computeractive staff, Computeractive
13 Sep 2010
The Saved Passwords tool in Firefox is useful until you change a password.

If you enter a new password a message will appear at the top of the page asking if you want to change the stored password for that website. Click on the Change button to save the change. Wait until the password works before you click on Change.

If the username also changes, you may want to remove the old reference altogether. Click on the Tools menu and then Options. Click on the Security tab and then on the Saved Passwords button.


Find the site whose password you want to remove. Click once on the site reference and then on the Remove button.

Microsoft revamps social-networking link in Outlook
Microsoft updates Outlook Social Connector tool
Software giant upgrades social-networking link tool
Written by Dinah Greek, Computeractive
13 Sep 2010
Microsoft has updated the Outlook Social Connector so that people can view updates on their social-networking accounts and Windows Live Messenger while using the email client.

People using Outlook 2010, will have the new version distributed through Microsoft Update, so they don't have to do anything to upgrade. Those using older versions will need to download the application from the Microsoft Download Center.

By default in Outlook 2010 the application is minimised and appears as a single line at the bottom of the Reading Pane. To use the Outlook Social Connector, people need to click the expand arrow, or drag the top of the minimised pane until it is the size that they want.

This opens the People Pane, a new area in Outlook where it is possible to view and access information that the Outlook Social Connector displays from social networks. To add a site such as Facebook, or Linkedin and Windows Live Messenger to Outlook Social Connector people need to use the partner page.

Security researchers 'destroy' Microsoft ASP.NET security

In less than 50 minutes
By Lawrence Latif
Tue Sep 14 2010, 14:07
RESEARCHERS have managed to exploit the way in which AES encryption is implemented in Microsoft's ASP.NET software to leave web users' data up for grabs.
The exploit, to be shown off at the Ekoparty Conference later this week, could affect millions of websites that use AES encryption functions built into Microsoft's ASP.NET software to protect the integrity of cookies during user sessions. Since 'sessions' are used in web applications such as online banking, shopping and just about any website that requires a login, the exploit is particularly worrying.
For users there's little to be done, as the problem resides in ASP.NET and is not mitigated by changing the web browser or operating system.

Potential HDCP key is out in the open

Shows the promise of free media
By Lawrence Latif
Tue Sep 14 2010, 16:25
IT SEEMS that the movie industry has once again been hit with bad news as a hacker has published what he claims is the High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) key.
The HDCP key is used by just about every major video format to protect the transmission from source to sink. The data is encrypted using the key at source, typically a set-top box, DVD player or even computer and is then decrypted at the sink, the display. The protection, or rather digital restrictions management (DRM) is aimed to stop people from making copies of content such as television shows or Blu-ray movies.
At this point it is not clear whether or not this key is actually the one that could render HDCP worthless. The hacker did not disclose how the key was obtained or whether it was a scene effort. Don't expect a twitch from Digital Content Protection, the subsidiary of Intel that owns and licenses out the technology. After all, if its golden goose has just been slain, it's hardly likely to make too much noise about it.

Internet Explorer 9 will be available to try today
Internet Explorer 9 Beta released today
Public test version of Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) to be unveiled tonight
Written by Tom Royal, Computeractive
15 Sep 2010
Microsoft will unveil a public beta (test) version of its next web browser, Internet Explorer 9, this evening.

IE9 is expected to support several new web technologies, including HTML5 video and CSS3 layouts, and to use a new Javascript engine.

Like the latest beta version of Firefox, it is expected to also support the use of a computer's graphics chip to accelerate the on-screen composition of complex web pages.

It will be released for Windows Vista (with Service Pack 2) and Windows 7, but not Windows XP.

The launch was first hinted at on a special website promising "a more beautiful web", then confirmed on a Microsoft blog.

Social networks riddled with malicious pages
by Janet Harris
Security firm AVG has discovered 19,491 compromised web pages on 50 social networking sites, with 11,701 of these on Facebook alone. Cybercriminals are stealing log-in details and can then access profiles and post fake status message. AVG found that the under-25s are most at risk of having their details stolen, with many of them failing to log out of the ...

Adobe readies Flash Player for IE9
64-bit support also planned for 'Square' update
Written by Shaun Nichols in San Francisco, V3.co.uk
17 Sep 2010
Adobe has begun previewing the latest version of its Flash Player multimedia tool. The 'Square' release is tuned to run with Microsoft's Internet Explorer 9, which is currently in beta.

Paul Betlem, senior director of Flash Player engineering at Adobe, said in a blog post that the 'Square' update increases Flash graphics performance in IE9 by as much as 35 per cent, and provides a particularly strong boost to bitmap-intensive images.

The release also offers support for the 64-bit versions of Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. 64-bit support had previously been limited to Linux.

"The community has been very vocal around the need for native 64-bit support, and we've heard you loud and clear," wrote Betlem.

"If you're using a 64-bit browser, I encourage you to install a 64-bit version of Flash Player and give it try."

Betlem noted that Square is believed to be stable and compatible with all content, but is not yet a final release and users are encouraged to report any errors to the company.

I fail to see what CClip98 has got to do with this Forum which is for home users.

Does it affect home users? I think not but am willing to learn if U have dug something up worth knowing.

Given that most users will have .NET 3.5 & possibly 4 installed are U alerting us to use the Microsoft Work around?

.Net 3 & 4 are showing as patched by PSI - how do U reconcile that against your CClip?

Adjust text size:
September 18th, 2010, 11:25 GMT| By Lucian Constantin





Adobe has announced that a new batch of Flash Player security updates are expected to land on Monday, September 20, and will include a fix for an actively exploited critical vulnerability.

At the beginning of the week, the company revealed that a new arbitrary code execution has been discovered in Flash Player 10.1.82.76, currently the latest version of the application.


It also warned that the bug, identified as CVE-2010-2884, is being exploited in the wild and announced plans to deliver a patch during the week of September 27.

Yesterday, the company amended its security advisory to announce that the patch has been pushed forward and will ship on Monday.

Adobe has said it expects to fix a critical vulnerability in Flash today, a week ahead of schedule.
By Tom Brewster, 20 Sep 2010 at 15:52

Adobe expects to fix a critical Flash Player vulnerability today, a week before it had planned to issue a patch.

Alarm bells were ringing last week when reports emerged the flaw was being actively exploited in the wild against Adobe Flash on Windows.

An update for Flash on the Windows, Macintosh, Linux, Solaris and Android operating systems is now due to be issued today.

Google Chrome users can already protect themselves by updating to version 6.0.472.62 of the browser.

The same vulnerability exists in Adobe Reader 9.3.4 for Windows, Macintosh and UNIX, as well as Adobe Acrobat 9.3.4 and earlier versions for Windows and Macintosh.

Adobe said it expects to fix the problem in those software models during the week starting 4 October, although it has not been made aware of any attacks exploiting the vulnerability in Reader or Acrobat.

Unlike the regular BHSEO campaigns, this malicious result which directed users to a rogue site called fire10fox.com, appeared at the top of search results because it was sponsored.

Setting up a copycat website to sell fake goods only takes a few seconds, according to a computer expert.

Some websites are so sophisticated they add counterfeit security certificates to fool shoppers, said David Holman, of First Cyber Security.

Check Point Pulls the Plug on Misguided ZoneAlarm Pop-Ups
September 22nd, 2010, 06:02 GMT| By Lucian Constantin


Security vendor Check Point has stopped displaying scareware-like alert pop-ups inside ZoneAlarm Free firewall after facing a customer backlash.

Late last week ZoneAlarm users started complaining about seeing security warnings, which falsely suggested that they might have an infection on their computers.


The pop-ups were called "Global Virus Alert" and claimed that "Your PC may be in danger!" They went on to describe the threat as ZeuS.Zbot.aoaq and advise people to buy additional protection.

Security researchers from Websense warn that a new round of spam emails carrying malicious attachments pose as password reset notifications sent by Facebook employees.

An example of such an email bears a subject of "Facebook Password Reset Confirmation" and its From field lists "Facebook Security-Manager, Sylvia Eary" as sender.


Compared to previous spam campaigns with a Facebook password reset theme, the contained message is well formulated and reads:

Software vulnerabilities reaching 'unacceptable' levels
More work to do on closing security holes, says Veracode
Shaun Nichols in San Francisco
V3.co.uk, 22 Sep 2010
Developers are failing to meet industry security standards when creating new software, according to testing firm Veracode.

Data collected on 2,900 applications by the company's security verification service suggests that more than half of tested applications contain " unacceptable" levels of vulnerabilities.


Financial sector applications had the lowest vulnerability levels, and mission-critical applications in general were found to be less vulnerable.

Web-based applications were found to be particularly vulnerable, however. More than 80 per cent of submitted web applications contained errors listed in the Open Web Application Security Project's Top ten risk list.

Intel unveils controversial PC upgrade scheme

The card unlocks features already present on the dual-core chips
Intel is giving buyers of some computers the chance to pay for an upgrade that boosts the power of the processor in their desktop PC.

The pilot scheme will involve purchasing a card bearing a security key that unlocks the extra features via the web.

Critics have derided the idea as a way for Intel to charge customers for something the chip can already do.

Intel said the scheme was about offering "choice and flexibility".

"The pilot in a limited number of retail stores will centre on one Pentium processor, one of our value brands, and will enable a consumer to upgrade the performance of their PC online," Intel spokesman George Alfs told BBC News.

Cyberstalkers threatened with a crackdown

There are estimated to be up to two million stalking victims in the UK
Cyberstalking is to be treated far more seriously after new guidance was unveiled by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).

Over a million women and 900,000 men are stalked in the UK every year, according to the British Crime Survey.

But this figure may omit thousands harassed online, through e-mail or on social networking sites like Facebook.

MEP Liz Lynne has called on the EU for tougher legislation to ensure European-wide standards on tackling stalking.

The CPS's community liaison director, Nazir Afzal, said the new guidance to prosecutors was the first time stalking - and cyberstalking in particular - had been officially recognised.

Microsoft updated the exploitability index of two vulnerabilities patched last week in light of new information and added additional information for a third.

On September 15, Microsoft released patches for twelve vulnerabilities in various Windows, IIS and Office components, which were covered in nine security bulletins.


Four of these vulnerabilities had a severity rating of critical, but the creation of reliable exploits for two them was considered unlikely.

Yesterday, Microsoft updated the exploitability index for one of these vulnerabilities (CVE-2010-2738), described in MS10-063, after receiving additional research from Secunia.

Microsoft will require Windows 7 SP1 for IE9
Enterprise users urged to stick with IE8
Shaun Nichols in San Francisco
V3.co.uk, 24 Sep 2010
Microsoft is releasing new advice for users of its Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) web browser.

The company has issued guidelines both for home and business users on when and how they should run the browser on Windows 7 systems.


For enterprise users running Windows 7, the company has issued a blog posting advising both end users and administrators to avoid running IE9 on Windows 7 systems until the browser reaches its final build.

While the company is encouraging users to 'explore' the beta of IE9, it is recommended that enterprise systems stick with IE8 until IE9 is ready for its final release.

For users looking to test both versions of IE on a single system, Microsoft is advising use of a virtual machine to separate the two browsers.

When that final release is issued, the company will also require an update for Windows 7 systems. In a frequently asked questions page, Microsoft said that users running Windows 7 will need to install the Service Pack 1 update.
The company is planning to issue the SP1 update some time in the early part of 2011. Other supported versions of Windows have not been reported as requiring updates to run the final version of IE9.

Anti-virus systems get tested

Independent firm rates products
By David Neal
Fri Sep 24 2010, 14:00
A NUMBER of the most common anti-virus security systems have had a beady eye passed over their effectiveness and fitness for purpose in an assessment.
The study, which was carried out by the Austrian AV Comparatives group, looked at twenty products from the main providers that volunteered to take part.
We do not know who if anyone refused, but AV Comparatives said that it had limited test subjects to no more than twenty and required that participants adhered to its undisclosed criteria.
The full list is available online, and unless you enjoy reading company names, we'll just tell you that it includes Norton, McAfee, Microsoft, Avast, Kaspersky, Sophos and Trend Micro. It also misses off a couple of well-known names, however.

Researchers seek to find true level of cyberstalking


Former TV presenter Alexis Bowater: "I was cyberstalked during my pregnancy"
A new survey has been launched in an effort to find out the true level of cyberstalking in the UK.

It comes a day after the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) unveiled new guidance to prosecutors and promised to get tough on cyberstalkers.

More than one million women and 900,000 men are stalked in the UK every year, according to the British Crime Survey.

But until now no research has been done to find out how many people are stalked or harassed online.

On Friday the Electronic Communication Harassment Observation (Echo) survey, commissioned by the charity Network for Surviving Stalking, was launched by researchers at the University of Bedfordshire.

They are hoping to find people who have been stalked, harassed or threatened through e-mail, on internet chatrooms or on social networking sites like Facebook.

When web apps attack

80 per cent are security risks
By Spencer Dalziel
Thu Sep 23 2010, 12:05
80 PER CENT of web applications are security risks but open source projects get two thumbs up.
The information comes courtesy of a report from testing house Veracode. Its "State of Software Security Report: Volume Two" apparently was designed to put a scare into anyone using a computer to access the big bad Internet.

Scareware Pushers Exploit New Multiple Sclerosis Treatment


September 25th, 2010, 12:30 GMT| By Lucian Constantin





A new black hat search engine optimization (BHSEO) campaign is poisoning search results related to a new oral drug for the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS), with malicious links.

A few days ago, a pharmaceutical company called Novartis announced that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Gilenya, a pill for treating relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis.


Gilenya is very important for people affected by this disease and their caregivers, because it is the first MS drug that can be administered orally.

However, it's worth noting that when the therapy was originally announced, it was called Gilenia (with an i). Threfore, a lot of people still know it by that name.

Security researchers from GFI Software (formerly Sunbelt) warn that searching for information about "Gilenia" on Google has a high chance of landing users on malicious pages.

In a world in which everyone can be Googled, it can be hard to escape your worst mistakes.

From disgruntled clients to drunken college antics and vengeful exes, your best-kept secrets are just a click of a mouse away.

The internet means there is a permanent record of everything said about companies and private individuals, both good and bad.

But now a new generation of online reputation managers promises to clean up your record on the web.

The 21st-Century equivalent of a PR consultant, their job is to shape a company or person's web image by promoting the positive and burying the negative.

TweakUI is a free download that gives you access to numerous systems settings that are not easily available in Windows.

Without TweakUI the only way that you can change these settings is through the use of a program such as REGEDIT, which is best left to experts.

TweakUI is a standalone program in Windows XP, but for older systems the program is installed as a control panel. Both versions of TweakUI do the same thing, namely they allow you to customise various elements of the user interface.

Also available for other OS's. *

XSS Worm Hits Orkut

Adjust text size:
September 27th, 2010, 12:08 GMT| By Lucian Constantin





A cross-site scripting vulnerability was exploited Saturday on Orkut to launch a fast-spreading worm that auto-posted a rogue message reading "Bom Sabado" on people's scrapbooks.

"Bom Sabado" means "Good Saturday" in Portuguese, which led some people to assume that the worm originated in Brazil, where Orkut has a significantly large user base.


The messages, which has rogue JavaScript code embedded into them, forced logged in users to repost them on their friends' scrapbooks (the equivalent of "Walls" on Facebook).

The attack was extremely viral and affected almost 10% of all Orkut users, 70% of which are from India or Brazil. The social network has over 52 million users.

Microsoft beefs up Hotmail security
New protections wage war on account hijackers
Shaun Nichols in San Francisco
V3.co.uk, 28 Sep 2010
Microsoft is readying a security update for its Hotmail service designed to prevent attackers from compromising and managing user accounts.

The update, which is scheduled for October, includes full-site SSL security protection, rather than just using SSL on the site's log-in screen.


"Today, we are releasing new features to safeguard everyone's account from hijackers," wrote John Scarrow, general manager of security services at Microsoft, in a blog post

Rogue LinkedIn Emails Direct Users to Zbot Drive-By Download

September 28th, 2010, 16:48 GMT| By Lucian Constantin

Rogue emails posing as LinkedIn alerts directs users to a malicious page, which attempts to infect them with a variant of the ZBot information stealing trojan.

The spam campaign was launched yesterday and according to Cisco Security it was the largest such attack known to date, that targeted LinkedIn users.


At one point, the fake emails accounted for well over 25% of the total spam traffic registered by the company's systems.

The messages come with a subject of "LinkedIn Alert" and have their header spoofed to appear as originating from a communication@linkedin.com address.

Trojans Continue to Account for Over Half of New Malware


September 30th, 2010, 14:51 GMT| By Lucian Constantin





According to a new report from Panda Security, computer trojans represent 55% of new malicious samples detected during the third quarter and are also responsible for 54% of all infections.

These findings are understandable in the context of a threat landscape that is focused on illegal income, since trojans offer more possibilities in this respect than other types of malware.

Security experts vote to outlaw PDF standard
Virus Bulletin 2010 calls for safer document format
Iain Thomson in San Francisco
V3.co.uk, 30 Sep 2010
Security experts at the Virus Bulletin 2010 conference have voted overwhelmingly to abolish Adobe's PDF standard and replace it with a safer format.

Paul Baccus, a senior threat researcher at Sophos, conducted a straw poll on the future of PDF during a conference session, and found that 97 per cent favour dumping the standard and working on a safer format with better software security.


Baccus then asked whether anyone from Adobe was in the audience. After a pause a voice at the back shouted: "Of course not, it's a security conference."

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

The application is free to use and shows the door to all kinds of temporary files, from temporary internet files to old automatic back-ups from application such as Office XP and file sharingsoftware. It also shakes out old entries from your computer's registry, such as unistallers and invalid shortcuts. The makers guarantee that it contains no apyware or adware.

CCleaner is one of the more popular system cleansing and optimisation tools available. This is the major v2.x release incorporating a number of new enhancements. For instance, the new version is completely re-written and is much faster and analysing and cleansing your system. It ships with a brand new user-interface and is available in a compact version, so you could take it with you on a portable USB stick and use it to cleanse a PC that you've used in a web cafe or other location. Of course, there are also a number of other tweaks and improvements.
