[AzTechNotes] Web Hosting FTP virus warning - GUMBLAR

Attn: Aztech Hosting Clients and AztechNotes Subscribers,
 
Firstly, apologies if you receive this email twice because you are on both lists but I thought it worth making sure everyone receives this virus warning.
 
It has been quite some time since we have seen a security alert that is worth passing on, however there is a growing concern in the security fields regarding a virus commonly known as "Gumblar".  The virus is named after the original Chinese domain name (gumblar .cn) that hosted the malicous code, but this site has since been closed and an alternative domain has been established.

After the completion of the steps below, your Anti-SPAM rules should be updated to the current date / time to reflect the correct operation.

TCPView from Sysinternals

 

A great little utility I use all the time is TCPView from Sysinternal (MS Technet). 

 

This little program shows you which application is using which TCP or UDP ports on your workstation.  It is fantastic for identifying what is generating outgoing connections from a PC.  Particularly with todays prevelant amount of Malware / Spyware out there, it is great to see what is happening on your PC in the background (usually without your knowledge).

[AzTechNotes] Phishing Season is open and Flash Player Vulnerability

Hi Everyone,

 

It has been a while since my last TechNote, which might really mean good
news.  If I haven't had to send out any security alerts, then that is a good
thing. Eye-wink

The only really pertinent alert in the last month is a security
vulnerability of "Adobe Flash Player" which is exploited when you visit a
malicious Flash (.swf) file.  There is no patch for the player, so best
defence is really to avoid any suspect sites (which is always good advice).
 

McAfee ePO install on MS Vista

If any of the systems you support are running Vista, you've probably come across the problem of trying to install ePO onto those machines. Framepkg.exe, the single-file installer for the CMA and ePO, doesn't work in Vista, unless you're running as "administrator."

NB: this doesn't mean as an administrator, but rather the built-in administrator account itself.
