OWASP: Avoiding Hacker Tricks

Learn to build secure applications from the mindset of the hacker and avoid being exploited.

Looking for a bit of advice guys.. I have a asus ZX270 MB, i7 processor all is running great.  I am using 2 monitors 1-hdmi and 1-display port, I have no graphics card installed. I want to be able to run, say a video on the tv and  work on the pc on the monitor.  since I only have one graphics source I don't think I can do it.  But the question is this-  I have a usb c port could I use this to stream to the tv while running the monitor from the display port.  My own feeling is no, since there is still only one source but I am no expert so I thought I would ask you guys if this is possible.

I am having an issue of uninstalling the Exchange management tools.
It has completed the pre-checking part and failed at stopping services.
I tired via CMD at BIN dir as well as through control panel.

Hi,

I have Dell Optiplex 7050 and has Window10 running on this pc. We use BitLocker for disk encryption. After I have  BitLocker encryption running and reboot It asks BitLocker recovery key.  Then I found the following steps seems to work:

Deactivate the TPMAutoProvisioning within Windows via the Administrator PowerShell:
1. Right click on the Start menu.
2. Type powershell, right click to run as admin
3. Type the command Disable-TpmAutoProvisioning and press Enter and make sure autoprovisioning is disabled.

Delete the TPM within the BIOS using the Clear option :
1. Restart the system and go to BIOS setup
2. Select "Security".
3. Click on "TPM Security".
4. Choose to Clear the TPM and then click yes to removing all keys from the TPM. (TPM will need to remain active).
5. Then exit and reboot into BIOS again to verify that the TPM is still seen as active.
6. Exit and reboot into the Window.

Activate the TPMAutoProvisioning again with the following PowerShell operation:
1. Right click on the Start menu.
2. type powershell and right click to run as admin
3. Type the command Enable-TpmAutoProvisioning and press Enter.

Under the tpm.msc make sure TPM management provided TPM status as ready to use, with reduced functionality.T hen
1. Turn OFF Bitlocker. Wait for  the hard drive to decrypt.
2. Turn ON Bitlocker. Reboot and no more ask Recovery Key.

It seems work after restarting the pc several times and it did not ask Bitlocker key until I shut it down…

I have a client with an older consumer style HP inkjet printer (USB).  I'm not on site and I can't recall the model (might be a Deskjet).

Strangely, one user account on the Windows 7 PC prints fine.  Another user account gives a print error.  Both user accounts are Admin accounts.

I removed the printer from the printers window in Control Panel, then unplugged the USB cable.  In the user account that doesn't work, plugging in the USB cable immediately gives an "unrecognized device" error.  If I switch to the account that can print, plugging it in results in the driver installer wizard.

I've never seen this kind of behavior before.  Anyone have any idea?

I run Windows 10 on my PC, and have the latest version of iTunes which I use to sync my Outlook to my iPhone 6 Plus.  A few days ago I got a new replacement phone (also a 6 Plus).  When I went to synchronize through iTunes the phone was found, and seemed to sync fine.  All of my Outlook changes were synced to the phone, but none of my Playlists or songs were.  I checked all the settings for iTunes (which were the same as what I've always used in the past), with the desired playlists marked for synchronizing.  I also checked the playlists in iTunes and all the songs were still there.  But after syncing none of the playlists or songs had synced.  I can't figure out why.  Can you help?

Thanks,

Phil

For some reason my home triple monitor setup isn't working correctly. The normal setup works fine but when I try to configure nvidia surround for gaming the middle montor, which is a different brand but the same size, has black bars on either side. I have never set up a PC to do this and was wondering what was going on.

I am running an i7 8700k, 32 GB mem, and a GTX 1080 ti so it should support it without issue.

My monitors are

From left to right.

Samsung 27in 1080p 60hz , Dell 27 in 1440p 144hz, and another samsung 27in 1080p.

The dell is the one with the issue.

Hi all,
Recently my internet connection  has been upgraded by provider from 100mbs to 800mbps snd they have confirmed I must have the speed near to 800mbps, but what comes to my surprise was the connection never had that much of speed, the fastest I have ever reached only up to 200mbps and never cross this.
So I decided to call the technician to inspect internet  line and etc, they did not found out any wrong and when the guys do some test with his own laptop he managed to get > 800mbps  that speed.
my questions is that what I can do now in order o improves my speed ? at least  500mbps if possible although I have been provided with 800mbps.

I'm running my machine with windows 10, 64 bits with 16GB memory installed and this pc has connection to corporate networks via vpn which I rare use them except when needed.of course I have antivirus installed and I never have any intention to run tsi machine without protection.

Become a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert

This course teaches how to install and configure Windows Server 2012 R2.  It is the first step on your path to becoming a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE).

Can anyone recommend a very simple (preferably low priced or free/open source) solution for inter-office chat?  

I'm looking for ultra simple: just the ability for about 15 employees to quickly have simple chat sessions with each other over LAN.  No need for Internet connectivity, phone, or video.

I've looked at a few solutions, but I haven't found anything that I'd feel good about sharing email addresses with.  I signed up for one as a test and got 3 emails in 24 hours.

Ideally I'd like a utility that runs in the PC system tray, and you just quickly open it, send a message to a pre-set up user on the LAN.  No bells and whistles needed.

Anything safe like that exist?

Thanks.

Hi,
What is maximum memory that Excel 2016 64 bit version can handle. I was told it was 4GB
and find that to be true as my workbooks struggle when 3GB+ is loaded into memory
even when formulas are designed to work efficiently.
I can often use in excess of 150,000 rows and 500 columns with a third of these columns
having formulas some being complex.
In addition these large files still take 1-2 minutes to load.
My pc is not the problem as it comprises 64GB Ram and uses an i9 16 core processor
with a 1TB SSD
Thanks

Hello Guys,

I am facing a very strange issue. I am not able to connect to the FTP Site using work PC but able to connect to it using my home PC. I have taken the following steps to resolve the issue:

1. Reboot the COMCAST Business Gateway (from SMC Networks)
2. Verified that no firewall is enabled to block the access
3. Contact COMCAST to verify if their equipment configured correctly, and COMCAST verified that it is configured correctly
4. Contact the FTP Site Hosting Company, they responded that since you are able to access out FTP Site using your home PC so therefore there seems to be no issue
5. Also verified that the our WAN Internet IP Address is NOT on any Blacklist.

This is a very strange issue and need guidance.

Thanks

AMI motherboard  PC
running windows 7 ultimate.  Built this computer myself in 2012. Fast, virus free great performance. Little light on memory.

 Tuesday we had a severe power outage and a surge appears to have gone through two double protection surge protectors. I can only get as far as   Bios post message   Recovery CDs  spIns  for three seconds only.    Does not respond to  KB Commands. Strangely, I just now replaced the keyboard two days before that after I couldn’t read the keys after seven years on the old one.  I do not remember how to do this repair. I do not remember what steps to take since it has been seven years that I have had my hands inside a computer other than to change ram.  If the attached file of the bios is unsuccessful it states everything is detected but it will  not respond to F. one for set up or F2 to load defaults. PC is the only thing that appears to be damaged on the outlets on this particular wall. Please help guys?   I have no idea what to do I just hope the motherboard is fried. Desperately need help I have three months of un backed up typed files.  It is basically a wired connection what are use a wireless adapter to connect wirelessly to certain printers. I have a small business to run now, not related to computers it is crucial that I get this computer up and I appreciate any help you can offer thank you   Please consider me a newbie. Donnie

Facing a very strange problem from yesterday, suddenly loss connectivity with FTP site with no apparent changes to the PCs and or Firewall settings. Well the strange part is that I can successfully access and upload files from home. First thought the error is on the hosting side and submit a remedy ticket but was told that the possibility is very low since I am able to access the FTP site from home. I also contacted the ISP (Comcast) and the support tech reviewed the Business Gateway Router settings which were also deemed OK...I also did uninstall Norton Security thinking it might be the culprit but the issue remain the same i.e. not able to connect/access FTP site from Office/Work network. Any help and guidance will be appreciated.

Evening experts,

We have a number of instances of Event ID 5723 Source: NETLOGON on one of our DC's with Win Svr 2008 installed (see below). Although the pc in the event does not belong to our network and never did. I work for a financial organisation and security is as tight as it can be regarding physical access to our main office so I'm assuming this access attempt was made remotely. Please, can you help me out here on how this could have happened? We don't have wifi on our network so I'm a little baffled here. Please advise.

Im getting this message every time i boot up, and the taskbar is showing clunky graphics like its in safe mode, system is win7 64bit with all updates installed

Failed to connect to a windows service. message

"Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service service. This problem prevents limited users from logging on to the system. As an administrative user, you can review the System Event Log for details about why the service didn't respond."

I tried the following popular suggestion to fix it, per below

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAaZFDNDQ-s

did the command prompt “netsh winsock reset” & then rebooting, but still no difference the same message after several pc restarts & router restarts..

Any ideas on how i can fix this?

Hi - I updated a clients PC in a rush yesterday and despite checking the option to retain data and programs , it completed the Windows 10 upgrade fine but all documents are missing.
I am looking at  3rd party recovery software which has located the documents but i wondered whether there was a method that doesnt require purchasing recovery software to get at the overwritten files?
I am surprised at this behaviour because i have done countless Windows 8.1 to 10 updates and all data remained intact, the Windows.old folder only has desktop, favorites, app data and links. Client thought they had a backup but they didnt as this portion of their data was excluded. I paid the price for rushing this and trusting the user.

Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
Thanks

I have a server with roaming profiles and folder redirection. The roaming pointing to a roaming folder on the server and the redirecting [desktop and my documents] to a user folder.

1 – Not on all computers the folders are redirected.

2 – Now I have a computer that already was redirected and now the desktop location when back to the roaming folder but without the desktop information, [the desktop is empty].
