Q: Ny Times Reports Serious Iphone Security Issue

While Apple will most likely patch security issues that are discovered promptly, iPhone users should carefully monitor developments NY Times reports Serious iPhone security issuehttp://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/23/technology/23iphone.htmlA team of computer security consultants say they have found a flaw in Apple?s wildly popular iPhone that allows them to take control of the device. The researchers, working for Independent Security Evaluators, a company that tests its clients? computer security by hacking it, said that they could take control of iPhones through a WiFi connection or by tricking users into going to a Web site that contains malicious code. The hack, the first reported, allowed them to tap the wealth of personal information the phones contain. Although Apple built considerable security measures into its device, said Charles A. Miller, the principal security analyst for the firm, ?Once you did manage to find a hole, you were in complete control.? The firm, based in Baltimore, alerted Apple about the vulnerability this week and recommended a software patch that could solve the problem.

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.)

I've spent hours on multiple trying to find a solution to this problem.

I'm running Win7 (upgraded from Vista) on a laptop. After my upgrade (I think), I stopped being able to run programs or open data files on my CD/DVD drive. There's no problem navigating a directory tree. There's no problem playing audio CDs or video DVDs. I can even burn DVDs (and read those files back).

The problem is that EVERY CD from commercial sources (driver installation CD, CD with magazine, etc) files to run. I also cannot copy the files from the CD to my hard drive and run from there. What I have to do is bring up another machine and copy the files across my network so I can use the files on my main system.

The error that is reported by the system is: "Windows Security" "These files can't be opened" "Your Internet security settings prevented one or more files from being opened." and the file named is something like F:\Windows 7\setup.exe (where F: is my optical drive).

I have been into the security settings for the drive and allowed everything to everyone with no success. (I'm the only user of this computer.)

I have turned off protection in UAC with no success.

I have turned off my anti-virus (Avast) with no success.

One other piece of information. I booted my system in safe mode and the CDs worked just fine.

So it would seem that there's something in the software beyond safe mode that's making my drive pretty unusable.

I'd really appreciate any insights. ... Read more

I have some questions about smartphone security, specifically the difference between the Android & iPhone platforms. My motivation is curiosity. I am not using this information to decide which phone to purchase (I use a Tracphone).

Reading several articles on various web sites, I get the impression of the following:
(1) Android is less secure than iPhone
(2) There is no known malware for iPhone

Are these statements true? Is there any hard data that documents malware for the different platforms?

Anti-malware software: There appears to be several products for the Android, but I cannot find any product for the iPhone. Is this discrepancy due to Apple's superior security technology?

Comments?

I have been experiencing an issue on and off for a little while now where I'll be looking at a page that I've clicked on from facebook (usually one of those list ones like diply, with a few funny things per page and lots of clicking next), and I'll suddenly get a pop up on my screen from au_ocean.asia.gifttoday.club saying 'congratulations Apple user! You have bee randomly selected to spin and win.. yada yada'

The only way to get rid of the pop up is to hit ok, which takes me to another page of 'oh I can't believe I really won!' bull and a spinning wheel for me to try my luck. I've never spun the wheel, once I'm on that page I just hit the back arrow which takes me right back to my facebook feed.

At first I thought this was just my price to pay for getting sucked in by those stupid list sites, but just now I've had it happen when viewing a perfectly reputable business website that I travelled to from facebook.

How do I make it stop?

I have an Iphone, I was a loyal Treo user for years and never had issues with my POP3 emails, AOL, Comcast, Gmail. I work in I.T. and travel for a living so email and my phone is a major part of my job. I am having huge issues with the Iphone's dependability on POP3 mail. Here are some issues and I was wondering if anyone else is having the same issues or has a solution for any of the issues listed below:

1. Some days it can send, sometimes it can receive, rarely will it do both, it is sporadic at best and no setup changes have occurred that can account for this odd behavior. I cannot figure out why it will receive sometimes and sometimes will go days without being able to receive, so I give up and use Safari and go to my webmail.
2. I can see the first 5 lines of my e-mail in the preview, but then when I click on the email to read the entire thing it gives the message "email not downloaded from server" when I click the button to try to download again, it gives the connecting icon, but nothing ever downloads, then maybe days or hours later, the email will finally download.
3. Since I fly weekly I need to be able to read emails while in airplane mode, if there is an attachment to an email it requires an internet connection to redownload the attachment for viewing each time. Is there an app out there that can let me save my PDF files, or word docs etc.

What exactly did you use t rotate the pictures?

It may be worth completely disabling photo sync in iTunes and then reenabling it to see if that solves the problem too.

A:issue with problem reports and solutions

Well, this may not be a solution but, have you tried using your Original CD Drivers?

If that doesn't work, I would boot in safe mode, uninstall the drivers for the mobo, restart and install from CD then since I am sure Vista will not be able to connect to the internet and look for the drivers since you won't have Ethernet capabilities. Once you load those drivers, it should let you connect and go to Asus site and download the new drivers then.

Another thing that we can do is upload the drivers for you in Rapidshare or any other host that you might be able to download from if everything else fails.

I am trying to pull a date from a database using VB 6 and pass that date into a Crystal Report. The .ttx file has the date set up correctly, and when I preview the information, the date is there.

When I use the recordset, the date is not being pulled from the recordset. Is there something I need to do to get the date from the recordset? I can concatenate the information into a string, and it shows up in the report.

Thanks!

Good evening. Pay a visit to the ESET Online Scanner. Click the Run ESET Online Scanner button.
If you are using any other browser than IE, you will be prompted to download and run esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe and the scan will run from within the window that the executable opens.
Regardless of which browser you are using, you will be shown some terms and conditions and you will need to accept these to continue.
If you are running IE for this scan you will then be prompted to allow an ActiveX component to be downloaded, unless you already have it installed, and the scan will run inside IE.
When you see the Computer Scan Settings window, you will need to make the following changes:

UNCHECK Remove found threats - this is important. Check Scan archives Click on Advanced settings Check Scan for potentially unsafe applications Once ready, click Start to begin - not a surprise really! The anti-virus definitions will now be downloaded, so don't forget to allow them through your firewall if prompted. The above will take a little time, so now is a good time to fire up the kettle and open the biccies. Once the scan has completed you will be shown the results - assuming that the scanner has found anything. Click List of found threats and then Export to text file... and save the log somewhere convenient. You can then close out the scanner - don't bother uninstalling it as you may need to use it again.

Saturday, June 28, 2008 11:10 AM PDTSecurity researchers reported recently that they have spotted a Mac Trojan horse in the wild that could compromise machines running Apple Inc.'s Mac OS X 10.4 or 10.5.Last week, SecureMac, a Mac-specific vendor of antivirus tools, posted an alert saying that its researchers had found a Trojan horse, dubbed "AppleScript.THT," being distributed from a hacker-operated site where discussions of spreading the malware via iChat, Apple's instant messaging and video chat software, were also taking place.The company classified the threat posed by the Trojan as "critical."The malware exploits a recently publicized vulnerability in the Apple Remote Desktop Agent (ARDAgent), part of Tiger's and Leopard's Remote Management component. Composed as a compiled AppleScript, or in another variant, script bundled into an application, the Trojan leverages the ARDAgent bug to gain full control of the victimized Mac."[It] allows a malicious user complete remote access to the system, can transmit system and user passwords, and can avoid detection by opening ports in the firewall and turning off system logging," claimed SecureMac. "Additionally, the Trojan can log keystrokes, take pictures with the built-in Apple iSight camera, take screenshots, and turn on file sharing."SecureMac's warning came one day after an anonymous reader disclosed a few details of the ARDAgent vulnerability on Slashdot, and on the ...

Yesterday I installed SEP 12.1.6 on the virtual machine (OS in virtual machine: Windows 7 32bit). After the first-time updating and rebooting the virtual machine, I find that an alert is generated in the "Windows Action Center".

Spoiler
Please see the screenshot above. Maybe you could not understand these characters, but I guess many of you are familiar with this window. It reports that WD and SEP is turned off. However, SEP is actually on. I am sure about that, since I have verified the status of the real-time monitor of SEP by decompressing some malware packs. And the log also shows that SONAR is working (uploading files) in the background. To sum up, SEP is working properly, but Windows alerts that SEP is turned off.

This problem appears each time when I boot/reboot the virtual machine and open the main window of SEP by double clicking its icon. I mean, if I just boot/reboot the virtual machine and forget the existence of SEP, everything is fine. But if I double click the icon of SEP to open its main window, alert will be immediately generated in windows action center.

How could I solve this problem?

I am running Win7/Pro x64. My System Spec is in my Profile.

I do not have iTunes installed on my desktop. I do have an iPhone 5, a hand-me-down from my son.

Yesterday the phone needed to be charged. I attached it to a USB port. I was asked by the phone if I trusted my desktop. I said yes. I was told that there were no new images on the phone to import, a fact I already knew. I've encountered this dialog before. It seems to be part of the procrustean Apple way of computing.

What troubles me is that a process started about the time I plugged in the phone. At a rate of 5-10 files/sec the 'modified' date was changed on over 3,500 jpg files on my data drive. I've not analyzed the order in which they were processed but suspect that it was A-Z on the file names and also on folder names.

Could this behavior result from iTunes running its 'sync' process? If so, is there anything I can do to prevent it from happening again?

If we have no Apple OS experts on this forum, does anyone know of an 'Apple forum' that is as respected as sevenforums is in the Windows world?

Two days ago my hp pavillion laptop, vista sp1 stopped working correctly. Windows security center pops up saying I have no anti virus protecting the laptop but avg seems to be running normally. I also have no network connectivity (posting from itouch) and when I try to open the network connection page it just stays blank and never loads then eventually closes. I get pop ups saying program "has stopped working", happens with windows explorer, firefox, windows search indexer, host process and a few others. Basically I have no Internet, slow laptop, a lot of programs don't work, security center claims I have no anti virus and it's the same in safe mode except I don't get pop ups saying programs have stopped working. I'm afraid I'll lose my documents and I am applying for schools and deadlines are this week and I really need my laptop I'm desperate. I scanned with avg and malware and got rid of a few viruses but problems persist. Help with be greatly appreciated. Not sure if it matters but my mom might have shut down the laptop incorrectly could be the cause.

Hey everyone! I got a problem with my Firefox browser that started yesterday, and was really weird. I'll describe in detail what happened. It's very strange and I've never seen anything like it before. So, here I go.
 
Yesterday, I clicked on my "Home" button in Firefox, only to find that my home page would not load. Instead of my home page, I got a warning in a foreign language that prompted me to install something, and it was a Firefox page, or at least it looked like one. I believe the language is Spanish. The icon of the item that I was supposed to install was an Adobe Flash icon or something very similar. I tried installing it, but nothing happened. Tried several times and nothing happened, nothing was installed. Here's the text of the page that wanted me to install the application (or whatever it was), and keep in mind, this was a Firefox page in a foreign language that was displayed instead of my Google home page. I got the following text on the page.
 
"Você está navegando na web com Firefox e seu Plugin de Segurança pode estar ultrapassado"
"Por favor, atualize para a versão mais recente para um melhor desempenho."
And below was the option to download the file, which is also in Spanish. The file itself is named "Atualizacao_v7.exe".
 
- the site I got yesterday when starting Firefox is the following (it no longer exists as of today, but this is the link, it gives the 404 error if you try to access it): http://www.google.com/update/u... Read more

A:Firefox won't load some sites, reports DNS/Untrusted connection issue

Just to clarify -- that's not Spanish, it's Portuguese. The message you got stated your "security plugin" for Firefox was outdated and you should update it for better performance. Not sure you should have installed whatever it was you were prompted to install.
 
The DNS errors means there are DNS records for that website, but for some reason your browser was trying to download data that wasn't available from that site. The "This connection is untrusted" error means there's a problem with a SSL/TLS certificate(s). I'm guessing your certificate(s) may be outdated or invalid, as the sites you are trying to connect to don't seem to be having certificate issues on their side. In any event, I wouldn't recommend accepting those connections.
 
I'm not finding much on the Atualizacao_v7.exe file you downloaded, although it appears to be an executable file of some sort. (Atualizacao means "upgrade" in Portuguese). There is a legitimate Atualizacao DirectX executable for Portuguese-language OSes from Microsoft, but this doesn't look like it's legit.
 
My guess is you've downloaded a virus. You should ask the moderator to move this to the Am I infected? forum.

Hi, I have three systems and recently all of them are now reporting through Security Center that "McAfee Virus Scan Enterprise reports that it is turned off." They are all running XP professional SP3 with all the latest updates as of 3/7/09 and the McAfee Enterprise 8.5 anti virus software. the Buffer overflow protection , on-delivery and on-access scanners in the console are all enabled and a manual launch of the scan works fine. is something turned off that would cause the security center to report this? all of this happened after automatic updates both to the OS and the regular daily McAfee update I can't say which if either of these updates caused the problem. I cannot get the Security center to recognize that McAfee is on and active even though it appears to be via the console. am I missing something? is the virus scan engine really off or is security center reporting false? if so can it be forced to see that Virusscan is on? has this happened to anyone else recently? (like after an update). any help resolving this mystery would be appreciated.

Security Center tells me my ZoneAlarm antivirus/firewall is off too. Since I know that is incorrect I just set it up to where I will monitor the aintivirus/firewall program so that it won't give me the alerts. At one time it did monitor it correctly and I am not sure when it stopped. I think it was when I upgraded my version of Zone Alarm but cannot be sure. It says somewhere in the Security Center that it cannot monitor all antivirus/firewall programs.
