  1. I know a number of the people playing SC4 are still using older O/S's, but this may apply to you, even if using a more modern system. You may have heard about a big flaw in Windows systems that's been affecting many corporations and allegedly even the Russian government this weekend. What is the problem? In short, there is a flaw (security risk) that's been inside Windows for a very long time. The NSA/US security agencies knew about this a long time ago, but kept it quiet and used it for their own nefarious purposes. They made some special software tools, known as rootkits, that allowed them to use this vulnerability to access affected systems. A few months back, hackers managed to get hold of these tools and swiftly worked out how they worked. This weekends problems which downed Telefonica in Spain, the NHS in the UK and DB in Germany amongst others, are all related to this vulnerability. Microsoft patched the issue for supported Windows systems, that's 7 and up, back in March. Of course you are only safe, if you have installed said updates. After this weekends calamities though, MS took the unprecedented step of issuing a patch for older, out of support systems. That's as far back as Windows XP, Vista and Server 2003 editions. If that doesn't tell you how serious this flaw is, nothing further I say will help. Anyhow, please, please, please, if you are using an affected system, take the time to download and install the patch from here. If you are using a supported system (Win 7 onwards), you should just run Windows Update and ensure you've all the latest security patches from the Monthly Roll-Ups. Failure to patch your system could lead to infection in the form of a blackmail scam, where your entire hard drive's files are encrypted, so you can no longer access them. The scammers are then demanding between $300-$600 to "unlock" these files for your PC. Of course, being scammers, they can't be trusted. Almost certainly your computer would be compromised in other ways. There is also no real guarantee you'll get your files back. The only solution that's safe is to fully wipe your drive and restore from a backup, assuming you have one. So you could loose all your data if you get caught out.
  2. Security checkpoint

    A security checkpoint. Place it next to a road with the shelter over it. It works like a small police kiosk. --------------------- NO DEPENDENCIES Enjoy it!
  3. A Backdoor for Security Agencies?

    You have got to be kidding! The Dutch are right. If there is a backdoor, some hacker will find it, therefore none should be created. Strong encryption is fine because to break it you need a very big, expensive system. Encryption is a mugs game at best. Private cypher codes are the way to go. The difference between encryption and cypher codes is vast. With encryption, you simply scramble the message using one or more keys. With a cypher code you send groups of seemingly meaningless text that can only be understood by the recipient if he has the correct copy of the code book. Both the Wehrmacht and the Japanese used encryption during WW II and in both cases their most secret schemes were broken. For an example of the use of a private cypher code (albeit very simple) read Ken Follett's novel 'The Key to Rebecca'. Without the correct edition of that little book, code breakers had no chance at all. The drawback to cyphering is that decrypting is slow. Encryption schemes between cooperating parties is fast. It is all a matter of how much security you want.
  4. 6.Security

    SECURITY 5th January 2002, The Security project has been approved, As the Security Department decided, A new Police Headquarters is going to be built in the Regional Capital, Port Tuduri. Port Tuduri, choosed for the construction of police headquarters, because is the biggest town in the region To build this building, wich provides with more than ten patrol cars and a lot of space to jail criminals, the region has asked his first loan. next to the building construction a whole security improvement plan has started. A lot of Policecars waiting to start patrol REGION MAP AND OVERVIEW LINK
  5. What not to do with your router. Ignorance is expensive. Is this a crime? You bet! It is theft.
  6. The Snowden Papers

    This has been floating around in the news for a long time. I felt it needed its own thread. Here is the latest revelation with respect to CSEC (Canadian version of NSA) So who is surprised? Certainly not I. Anyone who logs on to an unprotected WiFi server anywhere has made the ultimate mistake with respect to his privacy. Everything is broadcast on the Internet, so if you want privacy, chuck it all in the garbage and revert to being an island of privacy in a sea of stupid chatter. While my interaction on the Internet is limited to this one station, I really want to say Hi, to the guys at NSA, CSEC, and MI5.
  7. I'm So Glad I Don't Use the Cloud.

    Cloud hacked. Cheap storage, cheap result. For less than $200 you can get an external HDD and store a lot of stuff on it. Mine is 1 TB and I have a second one that contains archives that is 300 GB. Connected over USB ports which is fast enough for archives.
  8. Fire wall

    I know his topic does not relate to sc4 but before I start doing anything related to sc4 on my new computer I need to make it safe and secure. I have Norton as my anti virus. I also need a good fire wall to keep viruses from coming in to my computer in the first place. Which fire wall is good one that keeps out all viruses and preforms well?Is having a good anti virus and a good fire wall enough?
  9. My old computer got infected with the claro virus which made it incapable of running sc4. What should I do to prevent this situation for my new computer? Is Norton enough? I also heard that you need a firewall to filter viruses from your internet. Where do I get one and which is the best? The dilemma is that if I download a firewall from the internet then before I actually install it a virus may slip through. Can i get a firewall software from my local electronics store? How do I surely secure my computer?
  10. Java in Browsers insecure.

    USHS advisory. Patch to be released by Oracle by Jan. 15th. Homeland Security just justified their existence.
  11. Android Apps "leak"

    "What one fool can do, another fool can do." - Sylvanus P. Thompson. Seems there are some security issues. Some of this could be attributed to inexperienced programmers when it comes to apps. However, if Android itself is the culprit, shame on Google.
  12. New Security Technique

    Divide and conquer? And only $150,000 a year. What price password protection? The article goes on to say that most attacks are the result of phishing for passwords, and this won't prevent that. The rest are the smash and grab (passwords) type of attack. How often to you get a phishing e-mail? I get them about once a month, but many are killed by my ISP. I report them, and never see the same one again. This is a reminder to never, ever, ever give out your private information in reply to any e-mail no matter who it pretends to be from. Also, members are cautioned that this is a public board, and should never post your e-mail address in a post. If you need a private response use the Private Message (PM) feature.

The pack contains two styles of fencing (with or without barb wire) and includes extra items such as diagonal fence sections, corner sections, pedestrian gates and automatic rolling styled gates. ** This dependency has no dependencies.
