Preferred Solution: Fully patched versions of Firefox, Chrome, IE 11 and Safari exploited at Pwn2Own hacking competition

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Fully patched versions of Firefox, Chrome, IE 11 and Safari exploited at Pwn2Own hacking competition

This is one truly great event in the industry, thumbs up, so useful to everyone, except to the hackers who didn't participate.

I wish I could say it was 100% pure, without any shady agenda, but I would be lying, since hackers expose themselves, they all get into CIA and FBI books for good.

Actively exploited bug in fully updated Firefox is sending users into a tizzy
https://arstechnica.com/information...tched-firefox-bug-to-send-users-into-a-panic/



Scammers are actively exploiting a bug in Firefox that causes the browser to lock up after displaying a message warning the computer is running a pirated version of Windows that has been hacked.
The attack works on both Windows and Mac versions of the open source browser. The only way to close the window to is to force-close the entire browser using either the Windows task manager or the Force Close function in macOS. Even then, Firefox will reopen previously open tabs, resulting in an endless loop. To resolve the problem, users must force-close Firefox and then, immediately upon restarting it, quickly close the tab of the scammer site before it has time to load.
Whatever else people may do, they should never call the phone number displayed.

And this doesn't only apply here. The sooner people begin to understand that you NEVER react to warnings such as this the far less damage there will be.

Nothing legitimate ever presents beeping, flashing, big, and annoying warnings telling you to call a specific phone number.

So this is odd. It seems that my video has konked out in both Firefox and Chrome, but not Safari. I can hear audio from videos on Vimeo and YouTube, but not visuals. Everything works in Safari. I've also checked .avi and .mov files in VLC and Quicktime players. I've tried to re-iinstall quicktime and re-install Flash. Neither seems to work.

Any thoughts?

IE9 vs. Firefox 3.6.3, Chrome 4.1, Opera 10.52, Safari 4.05 vs. Same Markup

Internet Explorer 9?s evolution with the release of Platform Preview 2 is illustrative of the work the company is doing with the goal of achieving ?same markup? across all browsers. But same markup (the same HTML, same CSS, and same script working seamlessly across all browsers) is not just about the Redmond-based company. It?s also about developers, standard bodies, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), and rival browser makers. Same markup is bound to make more sense to developers than to end users, IE9 Preview 1 and 2 are, after all, developer releases. The public needs to think of ?same markup? in terms of interoperability, meaning that a website, any website, should work the same across any browser they run.

Browser interoperability is, as a general rule, a multi-way street and a multi-faceted problem. If it really didn?t seem so thus far is because of nothing more than aggressive marketing from a few players on the market. And let?s be fair, because Internet Explorer provided such an excellent target to blame for everything that was wrong with the web. But what if, one day, IE simply fell in line? Will the world (www) be ready to accept that browser interoperability comes with many, subtle nuances, which can be solved only through collaboration? Let?s hope so.

Hi All,
 
On 11 September 2014, Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explore browsers stopped working, all due to connection problems that I was not able to identify. Now only Safari works.
 
Internet Explorer displays simply: "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"
 
This is an old 32-bit Windows XP (that I soon want to upgrade to Windows 8.1), and I run Bitdefender Total Security in Autopilot mode with the Bitdefender firewall ON. When I checked Windows firewall it was OFF, I tried turning it on, but it didn't any difference, so I turned it OFF again.
 
I tried Windows Fix It, but the problem remained.
 
Our broadband internet and phone service provider is Sky (UK), and our landline phone works fine.
 
I think I might have become affected by some virus or malware or spyware last year, when I downloaded The KMPlayer and IrfanView from one of the FREE sites (cnet.com and something like "gorilla software"), that I did not know would  install other free stuff on my computer that would take ages to remove (and I'm not sure if I managed their complete removal).
Please help... thanks!

I am running XP Home SP3 on an HP Mini. IE8, Google Chrome, and Safari all display the "webpage not available" error when trying to browse the internet. The interesting thing is that Firefox is able to connect to and display websites, the wireless network is strong and connected, and all other computers connected to the network exhibit no connetivity problems.

I believe the problem may have something to do with the Mini's recent infection with Antivirus Soft. AntiVirus Soft is a fake anti-virus program scam that blocks all executables from running, displays bogus warnings and popups, and only allows IE to navigate to Antivirus Soft's scam website.

Yesterday I followed some step by step directions to manually remove AntiVirus Soft's processes, directories, files and registry entries. Upon restart, Antivirus Soft appears to be gone, however I am now strangely limited to Firefox only browsing.

Any ideas how to reestablish full browser capabilities?

A:Chrome, IE8, Safari unable to connect, but Firefox can.

I seem to be experiencing the same problem as the OP! It is quite peculiar indeed being able to only access Firefox...

Anyone who might be able to solve this weirdness??

Hello, First off thank you for taking the time to look into this and offer any possible insights/fixes to my problem. It all started off when Firefox started having popups, then moved on to when Firefox would no longer open at all. I tried downloading Google Chrome, which then kept giving me failure to connect notices, I tried Safari which ended up giving me the same error. Finally I tried Internet Explorer which is working, but is drastically slow, and occasionally giving me random pop ups. I thought about rebuilding my computer, but I have a lot of work on here, and it would take forever to back everything up. Is there any possible way I can fix this? Also my hard drive is a small 160gb, and its almost full. However, I've uninstalled virtually everything I can think of, and it's still almost full, is there a program that gets rid of things that are using up space they dont need? Like for instance when you use the Recycle bin, it deletes it, but its still there until it is written over. Again, Thank you for any help or insight you can offer.

Sincerely,
Jared

Only milliseconds separate Internet Explorer 9 from the fastest-browser-in-the-world spot. Microsoft released the final Platform Preview Build of IE9 yesterday, with v1.9.7.9.16.6000 now available for download for testers around the world. With the advent of Platform Preview 4, Internet Explorer 9 has suffered massive JavaScript-related improvements, with the new Chakra engine now a part of the browser’s core, but also with a boost in terms of JS performance. IE9 Platform Preview 4 1.9.7.9.16.6000 is now faster than the same of the recent Firefox 4.0 Beta 2 releases, and also faster than Safari 5.0. In fact, the latest development milestone of Internet Explorer 9 is the fourth fastest browser in the world, according to the scores in the Webkit Sunspider JavaScript benchmark.

IMO, once you get down to ~500 milliseconds, you're not going to see a real difference between browsers. For example, 450 and 550 ms are almost indistinguishable to typical human senses, as far as I know. But kudos to IE for finally getting in that range!

Problem as noted in the title. Using Windows XP SP2 on approx. 3 year old Compaq PC. Firefox was working a couple days ago, then would not open, with the error mesage "The instruction at "0x0159001c" referenced memory at "0x0159001c". The memory could not be "written"." I downloaded both Google Chrome and Apple's Safari to try and get online. Chrome won't work at all, and Safari gives me the exact error message that Firefox does. Strangely, Opera is working just fine, its what I'm using now to post this.

This year, all three major browsers – Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox -  were successfully exploited by security experts. As far as Firefox goes, security firm VUPEN managed to exploit the browser using a “user-after-free” memory flaw that it combined with an ASLR/DEP memory exploit. Both ASLR and DEP are part of the Windows operating system that help protect the system’s memory against exploits.
 
If you are a user of Firefox you may have noticed that a new version is available already, bringing the version of Firefox on the stable channel to 19.0.2 The patch is a direct result of the Pwn2own exploit that was used by Vupen to exploit the Firefox web browser on Windows.

In the IEAK, there is a limit of 10 custom components you can add to the package.  There are 9 prerequisites.  There are 16 (as of this writing) patches/security updates.  
The IE install is around 100MB + 40MB for the prerequisites.  The updates that should be installed after this total around 600MB.  The question is:  how are enterprises supposed to deploy IE11 fully patched when the limit in the tool to
create a deployment package is 10 items and I need at least 16?  Assume I could deploy the prerequisites beforehand.  
We also use SCCM to deploy updates.  I would like to deploy IE11 and reboot 1 time.  (We don't auto-reboot, but that really doesn't matter for deployment)  As it stands now, I would have to run the IE11 install 1 night, reboot the machine
after installing.  Then the next night watch all of the machines in our company download 600MB each of patches, and install them and wait for a reboot for the IE versions to be secured and up to date.  
Two ways to avoid this would be for Microsoft to 1) allow more (like unlimited) items in the custom components list of the IEAK or 2) create fully patched versions of IE for release (probably not possible due to the OS hooks, but still)  I would like

can i ask, why is this a concern?

Its my understanding SP1 includes all the current hotfixes as well as the unreleased fixes you had to email MS for. In addition SP1 fixes are all designed and tested for interoperability at a level the initial hotfixes are not.

With SP1 widely available why would you run the individual hotfixes?

to get a real hotfix list goto microsoft download

Microsoft Download Center

type in "Vista 64" to see the x64 Vista updates which have been released. The only ones you wont see are the ones you need to email MS for and those are not ready for release as they have not been fully tested.

Just curious, maybe i am missing something here...

[edit- i realize i mispoke as SP1 is still RC]

Avira has rolled out a patch that makes its popular freebie anti-virus software more compatible with Windows 8.

Earlier this month the German firm admitted its products were not yet compatible with Windows 8 after users complained that attempting to run Avira's software on Microsoft's latest operating system results in the infamous Blue Screen of Death.

Avira said its security technology didn't play well with Windows Server 2012 because of a radical redesign in Microsoft's underlying operating system technology.

Travis Witteveen, chief operating officer of Avira, told El Reg that Avira hoped to have compatible products within weeks. He admitted that it was possible that Avira would lose market share to freebie anti-virus competitors, such as AVG, in the meantime.

Software patches released by Avira on Tuesday ought to resolve the BSOD (stability) problems but users might still be confronted with a pop-up that warns that the software is not officially supported by the security firm. Sorin Mustaca, product manager at Avira, said that the security firm plans to release further software updates to iron out remaining problems. "We are working very hard to get our products Windows 8 compatible as soon as possible," he said.

A vulnerability in fully patched versions of Internet Explorer allows attackers to steal login credentials and inject malicious content into users' browsing sessions. Microsoft officials said they're working on a fix for the bug, which works successfully on IE 11 running on both Windows 7 and 8.1.
The vulnerability is known as a universal cross-site scripting (XSS) bug. It allows attackers to bypass the same origin policy, a crucially important principle in Web application models that prevents one site from accessing or modifying browser cookies or other content set by any other site. A proof-of-concept exploit published in the past few days shows how websites can violate this rule when people use supported versions Internet Explorer running the latest patches to visit maliciously crafted pages.
To demonstrate the attack, the demo injects the words "Hacked by Deusen" into the website of the Daily Mail. But it also could have stolen HTML-based data the news site, or any other website, stores on visitors' computers. That means it would be trivial for attackers to use it to steal authentication cookies many websites use to grant access to user accounts once a visitor has entered a user name and password. Once in possession of the cookie, an attacker could access the same restricted areas normally available only to the victim, including those with credit card data, browsing histories, and other confidential data. Phishers could also exploit the bug to trick people into div... Read more

Researchers at an HP security division have publicly detailed four code-execution vulnerabilities that can be used to hijack end-user smartphones running the latest versions of Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser.
The disclosures earlier this week came more than six months after researchers from HP-owned TippingPoint first privately reported the bugs to Microsoft security engineers. According to the advisories published here, here, here, and here, Microsoft officials acknowledged the bugs and in each case asked for an extension beyond the four months TippingPoint officials normally wait before publicly disclosing vulnerabilities. All four of the extensions expired Sunday, leading to the public disclosure of the bugs.
It remains unclear why Microsoft hasn't issued fixes. TippingPoint alerted Microsoft to three of the vulnerabilities in January and one of them last November. A Microsoft spokesman told Ars he was looking in to the matter.
Update:Microsoft has issued a statement that says: "We're aware of the reports regarding Internet Explorer for Windows Phone. A number of factors would need to come into play, and no attacks have been reported. We continue to monitor the situation and will take appropriate steps to protect our customers."
All four of the bugs allow attackers to remotely execute malicious code on end-user mobile devices when they use fully patched versions of IE to visit booby-trapped websites. The bug reported in November also in... Read more

Nine weeks after a hacker demonstrated how to spoof authentication certificates for virtually any website on the internet, users of Internet Explorer and many other applications remain susceptible because Microsoft hasn't patched the underlying vulnerability.
The bug, which resides in an application programming interface known as CryptoAPI, causes IE and other applications that rely on the code to be tricked by fraudulent secure sockets layer certificates. It can be exploited to impersonate websites, virtual private networks, and email servers by adding a null character to the prefix of an address in a legitimate SSL credential.

I'm having a very strange browser issue that I can't seem to figure out. I'm unsure if its relevant, but I was using Internet Explorer for a few years before I got a nasty virus. (It was a few years ago so I can't remember what virus it was exactly) I downloaded Malware bytes and it removed the virus but Internet explorer was always glitchy after so I started to use Safari without any problems.

Very recently after a Windows update, Safari stopped working. When viewing the task manager it would show safari.exe running but the window would not open at all. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling multiple times but nothing changed. So I downloaded Firefox. Firefox works but keeps crashing constantly, sometimes every few minutes. I decided to try Google Chrome and I was suprised to see after installing it does not open at all, much like Safari except I don't even see it in the task manager.

I'm starting to become so frustrated because any search I do for Safari or Google Chrome not working ends up being a problem with internet connection-- which I don't have. I've run Malware Bytes multiple times and its found nothing. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

Okay, so I've been having some computer/internet problems lately, but that's only because someone messed with the router, it's completely fixed now and we have a good new NETGEAR router.
Now I have a good internet connection and all (obviously, because I'm posting this right now) but Google Chrome and Internet Explorer are not working.

Google Chrome- Doesn't load any web pages and just shows an error message like this "Invalid Http Request header"

Internet Explorer- I forgot what the error message was but it's same as google chrome besides what it says. IE on my computer takes a looooong time to start up, so I only want to start it up if absolutely necessary.

Safari- Just doesn't load at all.

Rockmelt- works perfectly fine!

So as you can see, the rockmelt browser works fine, and I'm using it right now. But I like to use google chrome and sometimes safari. If the problem can't be resolved, I'll still settle for rockmelt, but I'd like to fix Google Chrome.

Although the certificate is fraudulent, it appears to all three to be a completely legitimate credential vouching for the online payment service.

2 months ago I could not enter my user area as it would not load. I followed microsoft instructions and altered the .bak profile in the registry, and problem fixed itself.

Today, Chrome stopped working - if I try to load it flahses up and instantly closes itself.
I uninstalled chrome and downloaded the .exe to reinstall - sometmes when I click nothing happens, and sometimes it initiates but then disappears, and nothing happens.
So I tried using safari - if I click to open it, nothing happens.
I am now using Internet Explorer which is working slowly.

I tried doing a system restore, but when the computer restarted, the user area problem appeared again, and I had to go back and alter the registry. Problem fixed.
However, I got a message saying system restore could not restore due to an unspecified error.

In the last day or so I have installed iCloud, Safari, and evernote - otherwise mainly just use the computer for Office and the internet, and not had any other issues.

What user accounts do you have at present, and is the main account administrator?

Go to start search and type:- cmd, right click on the returned cmd.exe and select "run as administrator" at the prompt copy paste:-
