I was just at a conference on Business Email Compromise (BEC).  various ISACs, Symantec, the FBI and the CIA presented.  It was very informative and here are a few things that were mentioned

  • Watch out for fraudulent scams involving IRS returns
  • Put 2FA in place everywhere you can and put a 2 factor policy in place for wire transfers
  • If you believe your GMAIL account may have been compromised, or just wish to keep an eye on it, there is a link on the bottom of the page to see the last 10 logins (although I don't see this in inbox, maybe it is only in gmail).
  • Set your out of Office messages to be internal only - or force this using rules
  • Use something like
  • DMARC

These were just some of the points made, but they were good ones.

This is a copy of part of the article located here:
http://www.tomshardware.com/news/how-to-fight-fcc-net-neutrality,36017.html

net neutrality
vote takes place 12/14/17:


Even so, it is the work of but a moment, so we all may as well do it. Go to www.fcc.gov/ecfs/filings/express, and under Proceeding, enter 17-108 (the dystopian-named “Restoring Internet Freedom” order). Fill in the form very, very, very carefully, ensure you get an email confirmation, and submit.

Your voice will be louder, as it were, with a phone call. Call the FCC and leave a message letting the agency know that you want to keep net neutrality as it is. Dial 1-888-225-5322, and be polite, patient, and persistent. You want Option 1, Option 4, Option 2, Option 0. Enter a complaint on proceeding 17-108.

Here’s a sample script: “Hi, my name is ___, and I live in [city], [state]. I’m registering a complaint about the proposed repeal of net neutrality, because it will hurt American consumers, reduce internet access, and restrict the open flow of information. I strongly oppose the undoing of net neutrality, which is at the core of proceeding 17-108. Thank you.”

Then call your members of Congress. The FCC commission is appointed and makes these decisions, but Congress can pressure the agency to do the right thing, and it can also put forward legislation to make net neutrality law instead of just policy. Find your congresscritter at https://contactingcongress.org/, and call the local office …

USB Microscope Comes in Handy
I considered making this an article, but this seemed to be the better way to do this.

The intro image  shows a USB microscope (~$30.00) and one of the pictures it took.  It is especially interesting because I didn't really think this would be of much use.  I just liked the idea of it.  I had the "toy" sitting in my office for only 4 days before I really needed to use it.  One of my users came to me with a MacBook Pro that no longer started, at all.  Under normal circumstances, meaning if it was a windows based computer, I would take it apart and see what the problem was.  There was a problem with that.  Since it was a MAC computer, I didn't have the correct wrench to unscrew the chassis.  I took my USB microscope, pictured above, and took a picture of the screw hole, also pictured, which I then sent out to my colleagues within the institution (a medical college) to see if anyone had a screwdriver to fit this screw.  


It took about 2 hours before I received a response that someone indeed did have the correct tool and would either be willing to lend it to me or do the job themselves.

Hi Friends,

Just a short note to explain why those of you who have been following me may be curious as to why I suddenly disappeared from EE all of a sudden and apparently started ignoring all of your messages for the last couple of months.

Without going into too much detail, I've basically been in and out of hospital with a rather serious condition. My last stint in hospital was 4 1/2 weeks and I'm finally now home again on a "Hospital in the Home" program where district nurses regularly visit my home and I go back into the hospital once a week for doctors reviews.

The situation I'm in isn't about to change real soon, but I'm confident I'll beat it eventually  :-)

So that's my story gang.. My apologies for the lack of replies and if I do seem to disappear, please know it has nothing to do with Experts Exchange forums, which I continue to thoroughly enjoy.

Best..

Andrew

Hello,

We have a Windows 2008r2 server set up as a remote desktop server. The server currently has Office 2010 on it and we would like to update to Office 2016. We use Office 365 and I attempted to install, but received a message that we need a volume license. What do I have to do to get Office 2016 on here?

Thanks

Today is the last day you'll be able to download Office 2007 SP's, Access 2007 Database Engine, Access 2007 Run time, and other software related to Office 2007 from Microsoft.

Make sure you download what you need to support your software.   Original post with some Microsoft Access links is here:

  You'll also want to download the Service Packs (SP's).

I have a Dell H625cdw Copy\Scan\Printer that I am having issue getting to scan to email.   The owner of the device had lost the admin password so I had to factory reset it.   Now that it is factory reset I am not familure with the SMTP settings to make it work.   The owner is using Office 365 and I am using smtp.0ffice365.com as the SMTP server.   I have tried several of the authentication type settings but expect that is the current issue.   Can someone give me a little guidance with this unit please.   Thank you

Not all emails show in Outlook 2013 but are in respective folders in Office 365.

We migrated this summer for Exchange on site to Office 365 and moved up to Outlook 2013. Working pretty good but for a few users emails that hit the inbox are moved to folders and then they disappear. No filters are applied, we've turned cacheing on and off and as you can see from the screenshot properties/syncronization the system sees there should be 5 items on the server (there is) and in the offline folder (we don't see them).

Been banging my head on this for a month and I'm out of ideas. I've moved the sub-folders around from root to below inbox and it's only a handful of folders. Renamed them, recreated them...those emails do not want show up in Outlook 2013 but are 100% there in the web interface!screenshot of outlook 2013 and missing emails

MS Access 2007 Users/Developers - *** IMPORTANT NOTE ***

  This is a heads up that the following Access components available as standalone downloads are moving past extended support in the near future and along with other Office 2007 products, will not be available for download after that time.

  If you have any software that depends on the 2007 (32bit) database engine or the 2007 run time, you'll want to download these as soon as possible so you have them.  

•      Access 2007 runtime  - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=4438
•      Office Data Connectivity Components (ACE) - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=23734&40ddd5bd-f9e7-49a6-3526-f86656931a02=True&a03ffa40-ca8b-4f73-0358-c191d75a7468=True&751be11f-ede8-5a0c-058c-2ee190a24fa6=True

Microsoft Certification Exam 74-409

Veeam® is happy to provide the Microsoft community with a study guide prepared by MVP and MCT, Orin Thomas. This guide will take you through each of the exam objectives, helping you to prepare for and pass the examination.

How can I share out an old *.exe application to multiple users in an AD environment who are connected from home via VPN? The requirement is that the execution of *.exe must be from the office network, the *.exe application calls a bunch of databases from other servers in the office and will disconnect if the application runs from the user's computer via VPN.

I am thinking of setting up a Windows 2012 servers and allow RDP connections for users to run the *.exe on the server from home(via VPN). Are there any other ways?

I recently passed my Microsoft 70-346 Exam.  As part of my revision I used Flash Cards that I created to help memorise key information.  The Flash Cards have been created on Cram and I've recently made them public.  You can access them from here:

http://www.cram.com/flashcards/70-346-8863906

I've gone overboard on the amount of information on there but It might help those attempting to pass this exam.  Obviously this is to be used in conjunction with other courses.  I can recommend the course on Platform Scholar.

The information on the Flashcards are valid as far as I am aware.  Obviously I take no liability for incorrect information.

Not much hope Microsoft will go backward. I do not find Office 2016 hard or complex to use. One nice feature is a box in the ribbon "Tell me what you want to do"  I have learned to type my needs here to get the menu choice I need. I expect Microsoft to improve upon this.
