Safely Surfing

10/18/2017

From our desktops to our phones, we are a connected society. We check email, social networking sites, news sites, message boards, and a large variety of other websites on a daily basis without thinking about the security implications of having billions of devices connected to countless interconnected servers that are run by people we have never met through an Internet infrastructure that was created without security in mind. While this is scary enough to think of from a personal standpoint, it has even larger implications for businesses that store and transmit confidential company and customer data. There are, however, actions that can be taken to help mitigate some of the security concerns that go hand-in-hand with Internet browsing.

Quick Guidelines for a SOC Report Review

10/2/2017

A SOC report is one of the most valuable due diligence documents you can obtain from your vendors. A SOC report describes a vendor’s systems and indicates if those systems are designed to protect you, as a user. While the first step in obtaining a SOC report from your vendor is fairly simple, the second step involves reviewing the report, which requires a bit more effort.

Tool to troubleshoot Windows Explorer crashes

9/28/2017

I have had the issue of Windows explorer crashing several times a day. All explorer windows, the desktop and task bar disappear then the desktop and task bar reappear after a few seconds. I did not nail down the specific culprit but used ShellExView (www.nirsoft.net/utils/shexview.html) to disable all non-Microsoft shell extentions. That made a significant difference and I haven't had explorer crash in the last few days. Of course, it could be a combination of shell extensions that will make it harder to identify. In the meantime, I will add an extension as I miss it and see if it destabilizes Windows explorer again.

VMware ESX Server HP power management

9/28/2017

There are power management settings that should be checked when running ESX on HP Proliant G6 and above or Dell PowerEdge 11th and 12th Generation servers.  See VMware article for details: https://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1018206‚Äč  The Proliant G8 that I examined having performance issues was set in the BIOS to use "HP Dynamic Power Savings mode" instead of "HP Static High Performance mode".  This can have an impact on virtual machines ability to utilize the CPU of the host.   This setting can be changed through iLO without the need to get into the BIOS directly to make the change.  It does not require a reboot of the ESX host to change the setting this way, which is even better.

Removing domains from Barracuda Email Security Service

9/28/2017

I’ve been migrating Exchange customers from Barracuda ESS over the past few months and recently ran into a small issue. I had logged into the BESS portal one morning and decided to go ahead and start cleaning up some of the domains that were registered so that Barracuda would stop routing email for these customers.

Should You Be Anti Antivirus?

9/18/2017

Recently I took my five year old daughter to the doctor for a general wellness check-up and her dreaded kindergarten immunizations. They were the standard immunizations children receive at various points in life. When the nurse was finished, she mentioned that we both needed to get the flu vaccine in a couple of months. I began to think about the flu vaccine. Each fall we hear about it from media, doctors, and pharmacies. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website states that the seasonal influenza (flu) vaccine is designed to protect against the three or four influenza viruses research indicates are most likely to spread and cause illness among people during the upcoming flu season. Some years the flu vaccine is very effective since the prediction of flu viruses that would be circulating was right. However, other years the vaccine is not effective at all, resulting in flu outbreaks across the country.
