Social Security Cyber Criminal

On the crisis world and difficulty to pretend the live better, more intelligent people using their ability to the criminal work, like reported on the science daily news said. Hacker spread of new spam campaign using false emails made to look like messages from Social Security Administration is capable of stealing Social Security numbers and downloading malware onto victims’ home computers.

Many nature disaster that happened on this world give an idea for cyber criminal to prey on victims concerns over money, promising Social Security payouts and tax breaks to victims that sign in to the criminals fake Social Security Webpages.

 They are spread a spam message to the victim directly and tell users that there are errors with their social security statement then asks them to link to false pages made to look like the Social Security Administration Web Site. These false pages ask users to enter their social security numbers before prompting them to download their fake statement.

 Actually they download a virus that can stealing every personal information available on that personal computers. This virus will get all of your personal information and infected your personal computer with serious malware that enables them to steal information and raid your bank and other accounts on your computers.

 We remind that computer users that no legitimate company or agency would ever ask users to update or review records via email, but instead would request they do so only through that company’s own Web site. E-mails requesting account updates should not be considered legitimate.

Indonesian Microsoft Precident Resign

Tony Chen, President Director of Indonesian Microsot officially announced his resignation from the giants company's IT . Good luck for you Mr Tony Chen, we’ll be waiting for your next venture.

"This is a very tough decision for me. Microsoft is a company that embraced the values of the employees who also have a great spirit, and loved my life working for Microsoft for 7 years.

Implementing, Configuring, Managing, and Troubleshooting Local Group Policy

Group Policy exists at local computers, servers, and at the network level. “Local Computer Policy” is the set of Group Policy settings for a local computer. A “Group Policy Object” is any single set of settings. A Group Policy Object exists as a document.

Group Policy is one of the essences of the Windows 2003 and XP lifestyle. A group policy controls who can do what. Traditionally, group policy allows directory objects to perform certain actions. At domain-level security, group policy can act on objects such as servers, organizational sites, and so forth. However, at the desktop level, group policy acts pretty much exclusively on users and groups. Some modifications to group policy, such as modifications to account and audit polices, affect all users; other modifications to group policy affect only certain users depending on whether the user is a member of the proper group. (We call the latter sort of group policy “group-oriented group policy.”)

One way to understand group-oriented group policy is to note that, when you create a new group, there is no Properties button on the group. You can’t just right-click on the group and start assigning powers and restrictions. Instead, you must modify group-oriented group policy objects, choosing for each policy whether or not to enable that policy for a given group.

Combined with Active Directory in Windows 2000 Server, group policy is a powerful tool toward creating an integrated, hierarchical policy-based security infrastructure for an enterprise. For our limited Windows 2000 Professional-based discussion, Active Directory will not come into play. However, a limited version of Group Policy implemented at a local level in Windows 2000 Professional allows for a fair amount of control over security issues.

There’s a lot of meat to Group Policy. We won’t be able to cover every single policy, or even policy type, available to you in Group Policy Editor. However, we will take an in-depth look at those parts of Group Policy that concern security. Microsoft is emphasizing the security-related portions of Group Policy in the test.

Free Base Program of Microsoft

As the latest news about the microsoft company lately, I feel sorry to this company, the news said that Microsoft facing on crisis right now. If this is right, I think Microsoft shoul be careful on creating or developing their office like Ms. Office 2007 and Ms. Office 2010 that will release in the near future.

I think better if Microsoft develop a new base program similar windows but everyone can use free like Linux, but the application just can use this base program and should pay for of course. Microsoft can develop just email that base on this base program, or video player and many others, or people can develop their program by their self to this base program.

The concept just provide the base program and people can use it, microsoft on this matter just provide a service that people will modificate or course on many how to, but they must pay for this. Microsoft may will not as the biggest income on this matter but can give others the same benefit and we are all can survive. This is just my oppinion on avoid of income monopoly.

Office 2007 Convert To Office 2003

We are mostly more familiar with office 2003 than office 2007. Office have menu that very different looking compare with office 2003, so we feel difficult to customize file and using this new office, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and others. Although we actually usually have use those available function but if look on the new arrangement we feel very strange and sometime make frustration for learn more detail.

Don’t to worry about this new looking that make we more confused, we can change this looking into the last office that we usually used such as on office 2003. You can change this view with UbitMenu to convert form looking of office 2007, than you will get the same view as office 2003 and no frustrate or too long for learn new office and easily for getting toolbar or menubar that is usually used.

Unfortunately this UbitMenu is not free yet, and sell using license. This UbitMenu is sell with € 10 (~$ 13.50) per company, and available for each basic language, and will add other cost if you have many user in your office, per user will charge for € 0.65 (~$ 0.88).

This application is very small and can be installed in a few second, and will not change the available menu as on this new office. Using this UbitMenu just adding new ribbon menu, and will not disturb to the office itself.

If you that will make you more hard because of adding for new expense, so don’t worry again, Microsoft just launce of new office version, Office 2010. What is available on this new version, I will discussed later, and hope will helpful for our you that don’t familiar with office 2007.

Just my advise, learn for new type more better than we buy for just can use by old version, because all will change to new version, and you still use old version looking. So others will say to you for ancient people type.

Outlook 2010

Microsoft release new outlook version, after the last version of office 2007. Microsoft release new version of outlook. Actually we all still confused using of different style as on office 2007, and many people use back of their office of 2003 after try and there are many different in the opening style. New style of office 2007 and many different on the opening page make user more late to use and customize their file or article.

Many news and article about this new outlook version, some say that in this new outlook 2010, more useful for work across the PC, phone and browser. Integrated with Exchange, will continue to improve productivity with ultimate inbox experience, and may contain many of new technologies such as:
  1. Mail Tips: Before sending mail there is a warm for people who is out of office, and more protect from spam mail.
  2. Conversation management: More easy to categorize email, provide with new tools like clean up and Ignore, and can reduce inbox clutter or to ignore of irrelevant e-mail.
  3. Familiar Outlook Experiences on Web and Mobile: have the same function with PC email additional function but can browse using our Hand Phone.

What is Dinamic Link

Dynamic linking Library (DLL) is a kind of small program collection, this program is stored in the computer as file with extension .dll. This program is then can be called by other big program to run their application that communicate with specific devise such as printer, scanner, photo etc. Many other application using a dll file, Dll file that support to specific device operation called as device driver.

Why some application using this dll file, because for certain code dll file can be use by many application or many device so that don’t need to write again the same code. For this reason using dll file will more efficient memory, and using this dll file will not loaded into RAM memory together with the main program, so RAM memory will less to use.

DLL file is often given a “.dll” file name suffix. During using this file that is linked with the main program on the execution this dll file then will compile with the main program. The set of such file (or DLL0 is somewhat comparable to the library routine provided with programming language such as C and C++.

Make Computer Working Properly

Computer is divided into two main parts, the first part is hardware, circuit electronic components that combine and can make an everything work as the command received, from one part can send the command to every unit on the computer. The second part is software that contains of command program to ask the component can work as the function, this program also can arrange other program to work. The program that is used to make certain hardware working called as Driver.

 

The complex system on the computer can create a problem on their work and difficult to analyze. The problem itself can come from the hardware itself or software on the computer. So the source of the problem sometime can't be detect using software that available on the computer, for this reasons sometime we ask to experience people to repair the problem. Computer with broken hardware sometime can't detect a broken software because they can't work as usual, even can't be turn on.

 

Currently available tools or software that is used detect or check the function of every hardware and software on your computer. Are they all have worked properly? For this purpose, you can use certain software to scan your computer, or even you can use free scan software.

Using System Monitor

Part of administering your network includes monitoring the health of your computers. In order for your network to operate efficiently, you need to make sure your computers' performance is good enough to handle the load placed on them by the network. By monitoring the performance of your computers, you can see how the load placed on them affects your computers' resources. You can monitor resource usage to see when upgrades are required. You can also create test environments to see the effects of changes to the network.

One of the tools to aid you in this is System Monitor. System Monitor replaces the Performance Monitor used in Windows NT. System Monitor allows you to collect information about your hardware's performance and network utilization. It also gives you the ability to view this data in many different ways. System Monitor is a snap-in to the Performance console, and is installed automatically with the Performance console. The Performance console is a Microsoft Management Console (MMC), accessed through the Administrative Tools program group.

System Monitor can be used to measure different aspects of a computer's performance. It can be used on your own computer or other computers on the network. System Monitor can collect data for memory usage, processor utilization, network activity, and more. This data can be displayed as a graph, histogram, or report. System Monitor can perform many tasks. It can collect real-time data on different aspects of performance and allow you to view this information. This data can also be saved or printed for viewing later. See Figure 8-18 for an example of System Monitor in the Performance console. The example shows processor utilization. The System Monitor is comprised of three basic areas: the graph area, legend, and the value bar.

System Monitor displaying processor utilization


The data you can collect in System Monitor is extensive. There are two basic types of items to collect data on: objects and counters. An object is a component of the system such as memory, processor, or hard disk. Performance data is collected from components on your computer. As a component performs different tasks, performance data can be collected about those tasks. An object contains data measuring a component's tasks. Generally, the object is named after the component it is measuring. Counters are the specific data of an object to be measured. Objects can contain many different counters. Objects can also have multiple instances. If there are multiple objects in a computer, then the objects are distinguished by instances. An example would be a computer with multiple processors. You would use instances to differentiate between the objects for each processor. An example of a counter is the counter Available Bytes from the Memory object. See Table 8-1 for a listing of the most commonly used objects.

Change Recovery Policy

To change the recovery policy for the local computer

  1. Click Start, click Run, type mmc, and then click OK.
  2. On the File menu, click Add/Remove Snap-in, and then click Add.
  3. Under Add Standalone Snap-in, click Group Policy, and then click Add.
  4. Under Group Policy Object, make sure that Local Computer is displayed, click Finish
  5. Click Close, and then click OK.
  6. In Local Computer Policy, click Public Key Policies.

Location:

    • Local Computer Policy

o  Computer Configuration

o        Windows Settings

o        Security Settings

o        Public Key Policies

  1. In the console tree, right-click Encrypted Data Recovery Agents, and then do one of the following:
    • To designate a user as an additional recovery agent using the Add Recovery Agent wizard, click Add.
    • To request a new file recovery certificate using the Certificate Request wizard, click Create. To complete this procedure, you must have the appropriate permissions to request the certificate and the certification authority (CA) must be configured to issue this type of certificate.
    • To delete this EFS policy and every recovery agent, click Delete Policy. If you select this option, users cannot encrypt files on this computer.

Attention:

  • Before changing the recovery policy in any way, you should first back up the recovery keys to a floppy disk.

Notes

  • You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group in order to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings might also prevent you from completing this procedure.
  • Usually, the computer issues a default self-signed certificate that designates the initial Administrator account as the default recovery agent. However, if the user who first logs on after installation creates a second account by using the Create New User Wizard, then the second account becomes the default recovery agent.
  • If the default recovery agent's certificate is deleted without another recovery agent specified in the policy, the computer has an empty recovery policy. An empty recovery policy means that a recovery agent does not exist. This turns EFS off, so users cannot encrypt files on this computer.
  • In a domain, a default recovery policy is implemented for the domain when the first domain controller is set up. The domain administrator is issued the self-signed certificate, which designates the domain administrator as the recovery agent. To change the default recovery policy for a domain, log on to the first domain controller as an administrator.
  • To make changes to the File Recovery certificate, right-click the certificate and then clicking Properties. For example, you can use this to give the certificate a friendly name and enter a text description.
