Despite its humble beginnings, phishing has come a long way since those first crudely constructed emails. Today, phishing sites can appear and disappear in the length of a coffee break, and it takes more than a little know-how to keep your clients secure.

Ransomware Spares No One: How to Avoid the Next Big Attack

Ransomware-Blog_Image-800x650-1-ner8.png
With global ransomware attacks, such as WannaCry and not-Petya, making big headlines this year, it seems the unwelcomed scourge of ransomware isn’t going away any time soon. While large-scale attacks like these are most known for their ability to devastate companies and even whole countries, the often under-reported victim is the average home user.

We sat down with Tyler Moffit, senior threat research analyst at Webroot, to talk ransomware in plain terms to help you better understand how to stop modern cybercriminals from hijacking your most valuable data.

To get the most Experts to see this you should ask it as a question using the "ask a question" button, or this link: https://www.experts-exchange.com/askQuestion.jsp

Question Hijacking:  The Experts in EE are professional and polite.  Sometimes maybe too polite.  What is the reduction in response rate if a question has already had but ONE response?  Is it diminished?  It must be.  

I'd hate to blame striving for "points" is a reason for responding; so I won't.

Yet, we sometimes get responses that miss the point (don't answer the question), are tangential, are patronizing.  These responses, if early in the hoped-for responses, reduce the likelihood of getting a good response that *is* on point.  So, a few suggestions:
- if you don't know the answer, wait for other responses before you post.
- if you don't know the answer, say so.
- if you think you might be responding to a neophyte and your intended answer reflects that view, re-read the question.
- Focus on answering the question and not on "THE PROBLEM" that may only be there for background.
I'm sure there are others suggestions that folks could add.
The value of EE to all of us is helped by encouraging responses.

I think that is a perception but not entirely reality
Well, I've sure had answers and threads that had but one responder.  So I rather have to say this is more than perception.  I may be biased by other venues where it's MORE prevalent.  I end up that it's more than perception and worthy of consideration.  Thus the suggestions.

If we are posting too much background information, that just really gets in the way.
Yes.  Examples can be misleading as well as possibly helpful.  Over time I've tried to do less.  Over time I've tried to make the actual question clearer.  When one does that then it's particularly frustrating to see the bandwidth used up.

 
If there is an answer you don't like or understand, take a step back, close the browser and come back to it later.
You're right of course.  My baggage is when clear questions are ignored or sidestepped.  My favorite baggage boils down to: "Is that a Yes or a No?"

The original post wasn't so much a complaint as a set of suggestions for more positive interaction.  I hope it was taken that way.  But the title *was* intended to get some attention.

We are planning on some updates to the question workflow to address some of these concerns. Some Experts are too polite, not wanting to add a comment unless they *know* they have the best solution. Others will try anything, presumably in an effort to help. Many Experts skip over questions that already have comments with the assumption that the user has already been helped.

We are looking at how we can improve ways for authors to indicate their solution hasn't been reached yet and for Experts to be able to indicate they need more information from an author.

Protect DNS: A Conversation With Dave Dufour of Webroot

DNS is one of the basic services on which the web is based and it has proven to be robust and scalable to an astounding degree. Unfortunately, it's also vulnerable to hacking and can be a serious attack vector if left unprotected. Dave Dufour, director of cybersecurity and engineering at Webroot, is an expert on DNS and its implications in network security. Security Now talked with Dufour about the issues with DNS and what organizations should be doing to protect their networks, employees and customers from DNS-based threats.

2017-09-20-13.01.07.pngEarly adopters of Apple iOS 11 are unable to send Microsoft-provided email using the native Mail app.

So I would hold off upgrade if this is important to you!

It affects Outlook.com, Office 365 and Exchange 2016 running on Windows Server 2016. Many businesses rely on Exchange and Office 365 for email.

Whoops.....Too late!

Gotta wonder how this ended up happening... iOS 11 was in beta for plenty of time...

Just did some quick checking and MacRumors is saying that there were bug reports on this during the beta:
https://www.macrumors.com/2017/09/20/apple-microsoft-email-server-issue-mail-app-ios-11/

Looks like Microsoft has some workarounds too. Either using Outlook for iOS client or disabling HTTP/2 in Windows Server 2016.

Network folder disappears after creating it as a mounted volume.  I have a MS 2K8R2 file server vm.  I map users to a directory called Department via GPO.  Users are able to see their own department folders but not other department folders due to access based enumeration.  This system has worked very well and without issue for 5 years.  The drive began to fill up.  It's limited to 2TB due to the fact that it's a vm on a VCenter5 host.  I created a new drive and "mounted volume" then moved the data for the operations department to the new drive.  The problem is that the users, intermittently, can no longer see their "Operations" department drive.  It appears some times but not others when trying to save a document to their network department drive.  Has anyone experienced this with a GPO mapped network drive to an access based enumerated mounted volume?

This appears to happen for Windows 7 clients but not Windows 10.

Understanding Web Applications
Understanding Web Applications

Without even knowing it, most of us are using web applications on a daily basis. Gmail and Yahoo email, Twitter, Facebook, and eBay are used by most of us daily—and they are web applications. We often confuse these web applications tools for websites.  So, what is the difference?

Command on QP2TERM and CL
Hi.
system chgdtaara qgpl/SHA2INP "'$(pr -t msgsigned.b64)'"
 
The command above works so good in QP2TERM but in CL doesn't work. Why ? Why ?  
 
My CL:
DCL VAR(&QP2LIB)    TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(18) VALUE('/QOpenSys/usr/bin/')
CHKOBJ OBJ(QGPL/SHA2INP) OBJTYPE(*DTAARA)
MONMSG CPF9801 EXEC(DO)                                            
CRTDTAARA DTAARA(QGPL/SHA2INP) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(172)
ENDDO                                                              
CHGVAR &QP2CMD   (&QP2LIB *CAT 'system' *CAT &NULL)                
CHGVAR &QP2PARM1 ('chgdtaara '  *CAT 'qgpl/sha2inp '  *cat  '"''$(pr ' *caT +
                                  '-t ' *caT 'msgsigned.b64)''"'  *CAT &NULL)              
SNDPGMMSG ('PARM1: ' *CAT &QP2PARM1)  
CALL QP2SHELL (&QP2CMD &QP2PARM1)
The result:
PARM1: chgdtaara qgpl/sha2inp "'$(pr -t msgsigned.b64)'" 
CPD0020: Caracter ''' not valid after teh string '"         '.  
CPF0006: there are errors
Thanks

Thanks for the head's up Andy! I already did the update last night and fortunately for me, I'm not using Microsoft based email so the issue didn't bite me. Big bummer for those that were hit with it!

And yes, I'm loving this update! The new dock on iPad is the real standout for me, along with the multi-tasking improvements. iPad is feeling like waaaay more of a desktop replacement in a lot of cases now. (Although the downside is how it's starting to make me crave a bigger screen, like the larger iPad Pro model. All part of Apple's nefarious plan to sell more iPads, I'm sure ;-)

On iPhone, the new Control Center is pretty sweet.

Still exploring a lot of the changes though, but this feels like one of the best major iOS versions in a while (well, other than that Outlook bug. That part is lame.)

Driving Mode is KEWL, and turns on Do not Distrub me, and sends Auto Texts!

It's a Good Reason for me, to let people know I cannot email whilst I await a patch from my Phone!

We drew straws in the office today, who should be the gambler and upgrade, last time we upgrade a major iOS we ended up with a brick!
