Never email in corrections after breaking the law!

August 23rd, 2010 Comments off

Here is a good example of when an email can be traced back!  I get asked all the time about how to track back an email to a person like spam or something similar but it’s usually no way to track back to a certain person and actually do something about it, unless you are as dumb as this guy!

Elevated Command Prompt

August 8th, 2010 Comments off

I recently found out that my external drive was running FAT32 instead of NTFS when I tried to backup a virtual machine.  Not good for copying large files.  You can convert from FAT to NTFS but not the other day around.  First off you have to run this command in an elevated command prompt window.  Here is how to run commands on an elevated privilege command prompt.  More on converting the file system of the drive next.

1. Open the Start Menu.

2. Click on All Programs and Accessories, then right click on Command Prompt and click on Run as administrator.

.LNK not fixed for SP2

August 3rd, 2010 Comments off

Short article below related to the out of cycle patch Microsoft made available for the .LNK issue but the article also mentions how the fix isn’t for Windows XP SP2 machines.  I wonder how many machines at homes will be open to this for years!

Microsoft, Google and Adobe

August 2nd, 2010 Comments off

Very interesting.  Adobe is mighty close to Google too it seems since there is a version of Flash for Android phones now and I think Flash comes prepackaged with Chrome.  Maybe something interesting is about to happen.

Apples vs RIM security

August 2nd, 2010 Comments off

Here is a handy chart for checking how Apple or RIM better suit your enterprise security concerns.  What do you use at your business or does the security really matter where you work.  It does where I work and RIM still beats them all as far as security.  If you use Apple or Android at your place of business, what do you use to lock devices down to give your users a choice?

Forrester: Apples iPhone, iPad secure enough for enterprises, but RIM rules security roost ZDNet.
