Need Some Help From Your Peers?
Need Help? Our forums are great and you can preview them right now.
Sign up and use the newsreader interface. Sign up here and set your
mail preferences to NO MAIL when you subscribe. Then plug this into
your favorite newsreader (I use OE and it works well) click here:
It will download the available lists and you can post to the list
and read them without them filling up your inbox. You have to use
the email address that you used to subscribe in the properties of
your news account, if you want to post via your news reader. Even
if you do not subscribe right away, take a look via the newsreader
interface, to see if you would be able to use it. You can still
read posts from others.
The only thing with mailing lists is you ALREADY get too much email,
but these are great lists for solving problems. So we made it so you
can subscribe, but then read it in a newsreader. Go here and subscribe
to the list you want: NTSYSADMIN, Exchange, Winxp, Disaster Recovery,
Active Directory Issues, Windows Security, SQL and the like. These
are not SALES lists, they are for admins helping admins solving
problems, asking questions etc. Like a newsgroup but without all
the off topic and inappropriate content. Here is the list:
The DDos Liability Threat
Last week, we wrote that "the body of case law relating to the
responsibility of companies to ensure that their computers cannot
be unwittingly used in a DDoS attack is growing." You must use due
diligence to ensure that hackers cannot use your company's resources
to attack others, or you might be held liable.
Distributed Denial of Service, aka DDoS or flooding, is for real.
It works by taking over machines (even, perhaps, yours) as unwitting
relay points which magnify the attack and hide the origin. I've seen
estimates that more than 4000 attacks are directed against enterprise
networks and websites each week -- just last month FoxNews, ESPN,
ABCNews and theweatherchannel were shut down by highly effective attacks.
Now hear this. I just learned of a simple approach that came out
of some Defense-funded work. Imagine operating a real-time, visual
control center...watching attacks as they develop...effectively
shutting them down...and ensuring no machine in your network becomes
a relay point or "zombie". And it doesn't take vast resources to implement.
The developer has formed an Advisory Panel for help and counsel in
bringing this approach to market. I'm in! Join me now to help build
a powerful DDoS Attack Center for the enterprise network manager.
Yes, it's good for discounts and freebies too... The time to solve
this new challenge is now. Join the effort by applying here today.
I'll see you on the Panel!
