Q: Is it enough " If I update at VMware Hypervisor or both Hypervisor and server 2012?

Hi all,
Good morning everyboday. I would like to ask one question to clarify? So, anyone please suggest to me.
In my network, I used dell rack server with Vmware ESXi Hypervisor. Then, I have create Windows Server VMs on that Hypervisor. In these day, we are hear many information about "Meltdown and Spectre Vulnerability".
I have read to protect such vulnerability. But, I am a little confuse it. Do I need to make security update on both Vmware Hypervisor and Windows Servers? If I make security update only Vmware Hypervisor, is it not enough?
Anyone please suggest to me for such condition. Thanks you.

Best regard,
Phyo Sithu

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.)

Hey community. I was hoping for some clarification. I am use to working with VMWare ESXi VSphere for hypervisors. So I have been labbing for my MCSA and I notice alot of the context of MCSA material describes installing an instance of Windows Server 2016,
and then turning that into a Hyper-V Server. What I did was I installed Hyper-V Server 2016 on my ProLiant. Is there any reason why I would not want to do this ? I had to reference alot of white papers, manuals, eventually blogs, and I think a youtube video
or two before I could manage it from my remote PC. It involved adding the target computer via power shell, customizing the hosts file, adding the server within the PC's computer configuration I forget what exactly. I also had to disable the firewall on the
Hyper-V Server 2016 before the Hyper-V Server 2016 hosted on the ProLiant started appearing in my Hyper-V Manager from my Windows 10 Pro machine.

However I was listening to this gentleman's youtube video.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdJJ4jiYx0Q
and he explains that Hyper-V Server is meant to be installed as a bare metal Hypervisor which is what I did do but because i was accustomed to working with VMWare SAN's that are the same way where you install the Hypervisor on the host machine and start
spinning up virtual machines. However I noticed i got some updates on the Hyper-V-Server 2016 the other day and not all of them wanted to install ... I believe some of the updates were for Windows so it went int... Read more

Hi,

I was explaining a group how they can use BlackLight, RootkitRevealer and GMER etc to detect rootkits.Then somebody popped up a question of Hypervisor Rootkits and BluePill and I had no 'good' answer.
How can one detect a hypervisor rootkit in a reliable manner, specially if you are running the computer inside the guest OS ? Are there any tools available to deal with such rootkits?

Thanks all

A:How to detect a hypervisor rootkit

Discussions about Hypervisor Rootkits have been around for several years now and there are many articles about the concept.Rootkits have been created as Type II Hypervisors in academia only as proofs of concept. By exploiting hardware features such as Intel VT or AMD-V, this type of rootkit runs in Ring -1 and hosts the target operating system as a virtual machine, thereby enabling the rootkit to intercept all hardware calls made by the original operating system. Unlike normal hypervisors, they do not have to load before the operating system, but can load into an operating system before promoting it into a virtual machine. A hypervisor rootkit does not have to make any modifications to the kernel of the target in order to subvert it?however that does not mean to say that it cannot be detected by the guest operating system, as timing differences may for example be detectable in CPU instructions. The "SubVirt" laboratory rootkit, developed jointly by Microsoft and University of Michigan researchers, is an academic example of a virtual machine based rootkit (VMBR), while Blue Pill is another. In 2009, researchers from Microsoft and North Carolina State University demonstrated a hypervisor-layer anti-rootkit called Hooksafe that provides generic protection against kernel-mode rootkitsRootkit: Hypervisor levelSubVirt: Implementing malware with virtual machines...Blue Pill is the name that Rutkowska gave for this new breed of rootkits that take advantage of AMD?s Pacifica...

I have the same problem. The reason no tools, scans, rescue disks, rewriting the MBR, flashing the BIOS, flashing firmware, etc. will never detect or fix the problem. Even a wipe of something like Jetico BC Total Wipeout/hdparm, clearing all or almost all places where flash memory can hide will get rid of it. Even a new hard drive won't get rid of it. Anyone have some SPID tools and know assembly language, lol ?
 
The reason it never goes away because they are on a virtual machine.
 
If you look at a lot of these farbar reports etc. I just glanced over a few here...there is a lot of files that don't belong. Many of the files are old experimental files from MS or Intel/AMD.

I restored Windows 10 from a recent image I created using AOEMI Backupper. The restore worked flawlessly and instead of trying to remove Hyper-V I've disabled all its processes. Now I can install VMware Workstation and Virtualbox but I really wanted to try Hyper-V

Hi there
Will the W2012 Server get the 8.1 type of update --anybody know. There seems to be a deafening silence on W2012 server which IMO is strange as it is STREETS ahead of the really horrible W2008 server.

W2012 server has options though already to avoid the whole metro stuff but it would be nice to add some of the proposed customisation features to it.

I'm also not hearing anything about whether W8 ENTERPRISE will also be upgraded -- IMO this is MORE important even than the HOME versions if Ms wants businesses to adopt W8. Boot to the standard desktop is really a MUST for businesses - by also pinning standard programs to the quick launch task bar and / or the desktop a lot of problems of User training can be avoided.

We have a server that was put in by a company that likely no longer exists, and may not have even been a legitimate company in the first place. (Server came with the OS installed, but we did not get any documentation on the authenticity of the Windows license, nor is there a sticker on the machine... seems fishy to me.)

The server runs Windows Server 2012.
It will not update, as it says that updates are disabled, and does not allow me to enable them, as they are 'controlled by the administrator'.

What's worse, is that any computers joined to the domain that this server controls, are also plagued by the inability to update.

There appears to be the following problems:
1) Phantom update server - The computers that are members of the domain try and update from some source elsewhere than the regular Windows Update servers from Microsoft.
2) The computers do not let me change update settings if they are joined to the domain. They say the setting is 'controlled by the administrator'.
3) The server will not get updates, as they are disabled, and does not let me enable them because they are 'controlled by the administrator.'

I am the administrator so that doesn't make sense.

Hi
I am working with windows 8 and I have installed SQL server 2007 and visual studio 2010. Now I want to upgrade these setups to SQL server 2012 and visual studio 2012. what is the advantages of what i want to do and how can i do it easily without corrupting the operating system? Please help.

A:Installation of sql server 2012 and visual studio 2012

SQL Server has an upgrade option that is pretty painless. Just run the setup file from your 2012 installation media and click the upgrade option. It will ask you what instance to upgrade, run some checks, and then upgrade it for you.

Visual Studio is a little different. If you install 2012 without uninstalling 2010 first, you will simply just have both versions to choose from. You can completely uninstall 2010 before installing 2012 by finding your 2010 installation file and adding the uninstall and force switches when running it(ex. "C:\vs_ultimate.exe /uninstall /force").

If you keep 2010, 2012 will ask you if you wish to import your settings and whatnot from 2010. If you uninstall 2010, 2012 will just have it all when you open it for the first time.

I have a fundamental problem and I know I will be told to revert to an older version of Mac/VMWare or just to Linux, but I'm so close to get everything working.

Basically, I just want to be able to do work with assembly language for the Computer Science degree I'm doing at DMU. To do this I have to have installed:
- Kate (KDE)
- GDB
- Insight
- NASM
- LD
I have managed to install Kate, GDB and NASM (using MacPorts) with the ability to install Insight if I can get the linker (ld) up and running.

Now, the main error message I got was through following these commands (in the Kate terminal) - my program being "eatsyscall.asm:"
bash-3.2$ nasm -f elf -g -F stabs eatsyscall.asm
bash-3.2$ ld -m elf_i386 -o eatsyscall eatsyscall.o
ld: warning: option -m is obsolete and being ignored
ld: file not found: elf_i386
I ran "-m elf_i386" due to the fact I am running a 64-bit OS and Jeff Duntemann says so.

I did an "ld -v," which gave me:
@(#)PROGRAM:ld PROJECT:ld64-136
configured to support archs: armv6 armv7 armv7s i386 x86_64
LTO support using: LLVM version 3.2svn, from Apple Clang 4.2 (build 425.0.24)

Following this, I basically searched for every MacPort containing "elf_i386" and "i386" and "gcc" and installed every one apart from "i386-rtems-gcc" of which I got an error when attempting to install:
Michaels-Mac:bin michael$ sudo port install i386-rtems-gcc

Hello Technet,
i recently tried to make use of this fine powershell module to manage some windows updates on the clients: https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/2d191bcd-3308-4edd-9de2-88dff796b0bc

I downloaded and installed it, but the "core cmdlet" get-wuinstall immediatly stops after executing the command.
When I run "get-wuinstall -verbose", I see "Connecting to Windows Server Update Service server. Please wait..."

This won't go away.

When I run the same command with the -debug switch instead, I get this:


I thought to myself, maybe the Windows Update Service is not ready, so I ran the get-wuServiceManager command, but from what I can tell, this looks good:

Any Ideas why this module won't work? I've also been trying to put this question in a more appropriate forum section, but coudn't find one that specifically was for powershell questions.
thanks for reading and have a good time
regards
Martin

SRV1 - IP 10.0.0.5 - FQDN SRV1.DOM.LOCAL - File Share 'FLDR1' / USR1<ReadOnly>


SRV1 has a folder, FLDR1, being shared for read only access to user USR1.

PC1 and PC2 logged on as Domain User USR1.
PC1 is able to connect to SRV1 to see and look in FLDR1.
PC2 is unable to connect to SRV1 to see and look in FLDR1.
Now there are multiple means of connecting to SRV1 to see the share FLDR1.


The following connections were done in combination with the following methods;
Method 1 - via logged on Domain User CMD Prompt with 'NET VIEW'.
Method 2 - via logged on Domain Administrator CMD Prompt with 'NET VIEW'.
Method 3 - via logged on Domain User Explorer Window.
Method 4 - via logged on Domain Administrator Explorer Window.

System: Acer Aspire one netbook.
Win XP home ed. SP3

Synopsis of issue:
Got this comp. from my company for a new line of work I started. Was "deep frozen" when I got it and was useless to me in that state. Got it thawed and it suddenly wanted to do loads of updates, so I let it. Apparently I was not careful enough & got the "XP antivirus 2012" malware.

Eventually conquered that beast and installed avira free. almost immediately avira picked up on the "html/infected win.gen2" malware. I quarantined, deleted, scanned comp. w. avira, rkill, & malwarebytes. all scans came up clean but I now have no connectivity. wired conn. continually tries to acquire network address and w.less has limited or no....

Not my router or modem as I have 2 home comps actively cnctd as I type this. Also tried multiple other networks w. same neg. results.

After loads of searching and t/s'ing I believe I have found the root of the problem: When I look under "services" I found that "netbios helper", "Network Location Awareness" & "dhcp client" are all not started.

Trying to start them results in failure b/c some "dependencies are marked for deletion". the afore-mentioned 3 things are dependent upon the Netbios over tcpip and tcpip protocol driver.

Those drivers are in the system32/drivers folder but I cannot find a "non plug and play" section in the device manager. Yes, I looked under ... Read more

We run a web proxy server on our network for internet access.
On client machines (running Windows 2012 R2) I have configured the proxy server setting in Internet Explorer "Tools\Internet Settings\Connections\LAN Settings" to point at the designated web proxy server.
When attempting to browse websites from IE I receive the "The proxy server isn't responding" error.
Conversely, browsing the same sites via Google Chrome and Firefox (installed on the same client server) return web pages without error.
In addition, if I run Internet Explorer as administrator (Right Click\Run as Administrator), I am able to browse web sites without receiving the error.
It would appear that the issue is isolated to browsing via IE when not run in elevated mode.
Has anyone come across this issue?

Hi Dicki,
First, please try to reset the Internet Explorer. Some plug-ins may affect the proxy.
If it doesn't work, please try to perform a network capture on the client.
Please check if the client send the http traffic to the proxy server at the correct port.
If the client has sent the http traffic to the proxy server, please check if there is any warning or error in the proxy server.

My ASUS computer (Windows 7, 64 bit) was infected by "AV Security 2012". It seems that it is bundled with "ZeroAccess Rootkit" because it won't allow any program to run, claiming that they are infected. Besides poping up alerts and windows, it also disabled "System Restore" function and won't allow me to boot into Safe Mode. It does not allow me to delete AV Security 2012v121.exe either.

I read a bunch of articles online about how to remove it, but apparently, the people who developed this virus are reading them too! This version of virus has rendered these instruction useless. This is way beyond me now. I need help from a few Einsteins to kick this virus's butt.

Below is the HijackThis log. It won't let me run DDS, downloaded from the first link, probably killed by the "ZeroAccess Rootkit".

Hi All,

I need some urgent help if possible.

I've got a vmware server at work and I took a snapshot a few months back. Since then I've done a lot of work without taking another.

By mistake I clicked on revert to snapshot and I've totally lost the current state. I tried clicking it again but it takes me to an even older one.

Is there any way of getting the recent state back up??

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks
