  1. I was looking at that too today on Ubuntu, and just verifying everywhere else I frequent didn't have the same password. But certainly not good for Canonical....
  2. Depending upon the situation: 1. If I feel charitable, and I have time, I might likely help you out. 2. If you have a problem that will take up a good amount of my time.....there is a good chance you will likely pay for services rendered. 3. If you start whining, I too will help you out.....which way did you come in?
  3. I've used Untangle for quite awhile now, but lately its been getting a little too buggy for my tastes. I too was curious about PFsense and how easy it was to configure.
  4. This continues to be an infringement on the rights of citizens, regardless of political, social, or cultural differences. As well as taking away the process on innovation from citizens and placing it into the hands of corporate entities who are sponsoring this legislation. Funny how corporate entities would not be where they are today without regular citizens who had the ability to innovate who started and founded the corporations.
  5. I've been using Untangle for a couple of years now, and highly recommend it.
  6. Something keeps bugging me about this worm, and its origin. Would anybody here possibly consider if Haystack might have been a possible suspect in all this? It was a project to assist Iranians in bypassing their governments firewalls and web filters, could something been deployed that if an Iranian visited a particular website using Haystack, something could have been downloaded (Stuxnet) back into their own computers, and spread undetected through Iranian networks and USB keys? The US Government allowed Haystack out to Iran, and bypass the US export restrictions. It seems strange now that Haystack has "gone to ground" now, the project is in hiatus pending a "security review". All good timing. b:\myrtus\src\objfre_w2k_x86\i386\guava.pdb When searching for these two words on Google, the seventh item is the search order talks about plants. Myrtus or (Chilean) Guava is a perennial bush that grows outside of San Francisco.....home of Haystack... Just something to throw out to see if line of thinking was logical....
  7. Mine is so bad, I won't even bother posting it......
  8. I would have to agree, there are a lot open source based firewall products that you can get (like Pfsense, Untangle, and others) that get more bang out of the buck than AlphaShield. 100% effective? That alone is just a sales pitch, even high end firewall companies never boast they will get eveything.
  9. Governments today tend to be very good at socially engineering and manipulating their own citizens. They just don't like the idea of anyone else doing it.......
  10. Rubieeallenn The latest spam janitor here....... Wonder if he wears a dress?
  11. Nice to see the forum back....... Now... Could we ban this jerk too? Davietorr He's just so concerned about all the viruses on my Ubu box....and is offering his cleaning services....
  12. Guys anyone can help me? are u Have SSH Port 443... only just fun study?? so please sharing with me user and password.. please guys... thanks What? (Didn't know three year olds could type so good.....)
  13. I think it depends upon the situation, I had a Vista box I worked on for a friend and it just completely defeated me (that and BlackSOD), regardless of what I could do. That situation involved a reinstall. Ive had other times where I have done "surgery" with Linux live CD disks on Windows boxes, and once getting it to a state of where I can get Malwarebytes and Hijackthis to run, I've had some success. But in the end, if you have to be sure, wipe the drive and reinstall.....
  14. I have to admit, it does look cool..... My CIO and I talked about it, and whether tablets like it would work and benefit us where we work (a financial institution) There are currently too many drawbacks that outweigh the benefits currently at the moment for our regular users, IPad would never work for us short of it being used say, in our Marketing department, who currently use Mac laptops. I don't know, I think I will take a wait and see approach on this one before considering a purchase. As for hacking......have at it, lets see how it can be liberated..... B)

    bye Matt

    Good luck in your future endeavours......I did enjoy the virtual machine segments I watched going through the Hak5 archives using Miro during my Christmas break from work and college.
