Actually Intel does a good job of explaining the benefits of AMT and, by inference, you can see how the likes of Lenovo, Dell, HP, Asus, etc. can leverage off AMT to provide warranty support to consumers. In particular, this benefit stands out: With out-of-band management capabilities, including Keyboard-Video-Mouse (KVM) Remote Control, Intel AMT allows ...

How to unlock Windows 7 screen using script You can define and save an RDP file with all needed options, and point it to the machine to make the connection. You will set the configuration to save the credential and then enter and save the credential values. Now each time you double-click the RDP icon (from that same account and machine you created it on), ...

Alternatively is there any possibility to reliably disable communication with a computer with keyboard and mouse strokes while it displays a black screen? I'm not certain at the moment how to tell a computer to not accept keyboard or mouse operations for those components which are physically connected to it but per the below quoted part of your question I ...

As posted on February 4th, 2016 by Woody Leonhard, via his own website: "...I never install drivers from Windows Update (in the rare case where I can actually see a problem with a driver, I go to the manufacturer's web site and download it from the original source). If Windows Update has a patch but the box isn't checked, DON'T CHECK THE BOX. It's like ...

Sorry, that's not possible, at least not to the extent you seem to want. As mentioned in the comments by Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007, all of Windows access control is based on users. Every process has a token attached to it, which determines what user it's running as. There is no difference between you performing an action and a program running under your account performing ...

Your question is a bit vague, but from your comments I understand what you intend. You want to hide your IP when you are working on the VPS and need to download stuff from the internet to the VPS. The VPS is just a regular computer just like your computer at home (at least in this sense). So yes: If you install a TOR client on the VPS you can use that just ...

Are you sure you fully understand what 'hiding your IP address' means? You would not be able to receive any website or other data, as your IP address is the place where this gets delivered to. Imagine you want to order something from Amazon, but you want to completely hide your mailing address. How can that work?

Apparently, this is a known issue in both Atmel Studio and windows 7. After some research, I found this Atmel thread where someone complained about the same issue. The answer on that site linked to this windows support page with a link to a windows quickfix. After downloading and installing that quickfix, everything runs great for me.

Deep Freeze plus automatic periodic reboots is a common software solution to this problem.

Yes, if you are concerned about government level surveillance the problem you identified is a very real threat. Normally what someone will do in this situation is boot in to a "clean" OS that has no personal identifying information on it (Tails is a good example of this) and only use it for that anonymous communication. You could do it with Windows, it is ...

Just with a virtual machine go and browse a bunch of communist-country-based porn sites with internet explorer 8 (installing every active-x it offers), then download limewire and search for various popular movie titles and download specifically the ones with .exe extensions. Then for your testing, just clone the virtual machine and try the different anti-...

This is not a rights issue and can most likely be attributed to the UAC protection. Referring to the UAC off solution listed in this question same question on TechNet, you could try accessing after turning of UAC but I advice against it. I had the same error when I accidentally dropped a folder in the WindowsApps directory in the root of the secondary ...

The reason for the Certificate Error in the browser, inspite of adding the certificate to the 'Trusted Root Certification Authorities' is because the certificate was issued for <machinename>.<domain>.com.

Since you're asking about RHEL6, I looked at the source code for useradd (which is delivered as part of the 'shadow' package). In useradd.c is a function called new_spent where it sets up a new shadow password entry. There it addresses the "expired password on creation" issue this way: if (0 == spent->sp_lstchg) { /* Better disable aging than requiring a ...

IMHO you should pay great attention to those points at least: be very careful about software security updates to have vulnerabilities patched as they are discovered, especially around Apache and public web apps you can run on (blog, wiki ...) prefer to use non-standard tcp ports to be a bit less targetted by bots disable ping answers on your modem be very ...

If you only have port 80 forwarded you shouldn't be much concerned, but it depends on your webserver. For instance if you have websait with mysql you should always use strong passwords and instal mod_security because there are many sql injection methods that if they succeed, the attacker will gain access to your ubuntu server (i assume it is on the local ...

1.How is it possible that processes have unknown paths? The system knows the Process IDs. (Specifically, the networking stack must know this.) The process IDs are just unknown to netstat. doesn't the system know the path of any process that establishes a connection? Yes.

As long as you classify the foreign networks as public network no-one is going to be able to access your shared folders. The integrated Windows firewall protects you from rogue share access if the network classifaction is correct.

User EFS certificates are stored in the user's profile folder, so if the entire folder was encrypted with that key, the key would be inaccessible and the user wouldn't be able to log in! Fortunately, the important files were in use when you ran that command, and so they didn't get encrypted. The profile folder itself is also locked by the system while the ...

I download many files. To me, the obvious danger is the file automatically running a miscreant macro by itself. To prevent this, I disable Events before I open the file: Sub GetFile() Application.EnableEvents = False Workbooks.Open Filename:="C:\TestFolder\suspicious.xlsm" End Sub This gives me the opportunity to review all macros before running ...

The bitlocker service might not be active yet, thus the computer thinks that it is not locked. So when the service starts, the computer then will realise that the drive should be lock, thus the drive is then locked.

As also stated in the Privacy Policy of the add-on, the only outgoing connections of the add-on are to the configured DNS server. So the only ones who could learn something form it, are the DNS server, an an attacker who listens to the un-encrypted DNS query. The sender of the e-mail, i.e. the spammer, is not getting any feedback. You can reduce the number ...

the answer to the initial question: for some strange reasons teamviewer automatically sets and stores the password for the remote machine in the TV account that it's linked with. to clear it: in your TV account open the properties of the remote machine and clear the password field. from now on it will ask you to enter the password when connecting.

You have several options. One is to use ssh's built-in port forwarding mechanism. For example, adding -L 1235:remotehost:1234 creates a local TCP listening socket on port 1235. When your local application connects to that port, the connection will be forwarded (securely via ssh) to port 1234 on remotehost. To create a VPN, I suggest using openswan or ...

The DKIM check is done by the server that is processing your mail. And your mail client does communicate with your mail server (your mail provider). That tells you that the sending email server is correct and the mail was not altered on the transport. Since many servers that are used for spam-mails have a correct signature (or are abused to send those mails) ...

Perfect safety doesn't exist, so I assume you only want to be about as safe as you are when you visit a reputable website. You can do this with a virtual machine, but I strongly advise you to reset the machine. If you infect your machine and don't fix it, there's a realistic chance that the vulnerabilities pile up, and open other vulnerabilities, until at ...

Yes it can infect the host. While unlikely, you should take every security threat seriously. If the VM is on the same network as the rest of your stuff and not firewalled off, it could infect the host and any other PC it finds. If the site has VM-aware malware, it could potentially escape the VM and infect the host. The ideal way to test potential malware ...

Computers with virtual machines aren't usually impacted much by malware on the VM besides possible spikes in CPU usage. Also, few malicious viruses/malware are geared toward Linux, so it's not likely that it'll get infected in the first place. Secondly, few malware/viruses are designed to get 'out' of the Virtual Machine. So basically, provided that you have ...

If you don't allow passwords for SSH logins, but, instead, restrict logins to key-based logins, you prevent malefactors from breaking into your system by guessing a password. If you run an SSH server that is accessible to the Internet at large on port 22, you will likely find that there are people trying to break into it on a daily basis via dictionary ...

You're getting scanned for vulnerable services. This isn't related to running Gary's Mod, it's just something that happens to anything with a public IP address (like your router) on the internet. More specifically, I see connection attempts for: ipprot=6 (TCP) dport=21 (FTP), an ancient file-sharing protocol that's hopelessly insecure and nobody should be ...
