Massive Attack Against Mailenable Mail Software

bitstop thanks the patience of our webhosted clients who were affected by a mysterious flaw in their websites, whereby all visitors are made to enter their authentication. It took our team a long time to track it down. From what we have so far. The vulnerability is traced to Mailenable software. This allows a virus to propagate into the servers and install rootkits and backdoors into the affected servers. The indicators of the attack are files named rdriv.sys and config.exe sometimes with a.exe and several sdbot variants. This is serious, and we will strive our best to get the websites...

Featured Web Service: Gift Registries

As a busy executive, how often times have you been invited to special occasions? A lot? Your number one concern is probably what gift or present to give to your host. I have often wished that the guess work could be shortened , if not totally eliminated. Now comes this web enabled service that allows your host to put up their 'wish list'. This saves me the time of having to go out and spend hours shopping. (Although my wife would certainly enjoy it!). Plus it saves the embarassment of later finding out that your host 'refunded' your gift with the...

Vista Is Worth the Wait

While i was in Singapore, my laptop (Samsung Q35) crashed. Since i did not have my recovery CD with me, i went to Plaza Singapura where Samsung Service center was. I was told that they would reformat the system, and would take at least 5 days to do that.(What????) Since I wasn't staying that long, i decided to buy another OS. At the Funan Center (much like the Philippines' Virra Mall), i bough a Vista OS. Installed it and had it running. Wow! Vista seems to make my laptop much faster than it was before (Windows XP).
