RSA Says SecurID Hack Based On Phishing With Flash 0-Day

noctrl Re:And I think to myself... (153 comments)

I noticed a couple of things about windows: users inside the company compulsively send attachments to the point where people open them without thinking. Outlook adds external users to its address book, then hides domain name information when it displays that user. It can be hard to tell what is internal mail and what is not.

Sad, isnt it?
I wonder where this fetish for Outlook come from.
I call it OutOfLuck, because you really are.
It is one of the things that make stupid users more stupid...

10 OSes We Left Behind

noctrl Re:The 10 OSes I have gladly left behind... (562 comments)

heh, very likely.

NT4 is the OS i hate most.
I started working as a system administrator when it was starting to get a foothold.

I can still feel the pain, like an old battlescar.

Why anyone would run critical corporate applications on that shit is still a mystery to me.

The bloody thing had a tendency suddenly to explode..

UAC Whitelist Hole In Windows 7

noctrl Re:Yes... but... (496 comments)

a - The sudo prompt pops up automatically when a program attempts to do certain classes of things for which it does not have privileges.

No, this opens up for social attacks.
Please remember that regular computer users will doubleclick on anything (including landmines) and will in general have no clue on what elevated privileges means.

This differs from Linux, in which a program will simply fail with an "Insufficient permissions" error

And this IS the correct way to do it.
