Free Wireless Lockdown Tool!
SecureWave just released a free security solution that, I dare to
say, is of interest to many of you.
In two words, they have released a Windows 2000/XP solution that
allows you to prevent the use of Wireless cards --unless you
actually want your users to use them of course. Many companies
spent lots of money on their firewalls and, those that make use
of it, even WLANs. However, today the focus has been on securing
the communication between the WLAN endpoints and the base stations
-- but what about if you do not want them in the first place?
Under Windows 2000/XP you (as an end-user) just need to plug one
of these wireless cards in that machine and bingo -- security
polices are out of the window. If you want to make sure that
WLAN cards cannot be used your will love WaveLock. I know the
developers myself, these are reliable people. Wavelock is free,
not supported but definitely interesting. check it out at:
Check Out iHateSpam Exchange 2000 Anti-Spam Engine
Here are some very happy users of iHateSpam on the client-side.
Try this for yourself so you will see how the iHateSpam detection
engine will work on the server level.
A "testimonial" for your records - iHateSpam works the way add-ins
should work: easily installed and configured, clean and intuitive
user interface, and seamless integration. We didn?t need a 30-day
evaluation; we were convinced after using it for less than a week.
Like the other Sunbelt Software utilities we use, this one works
"as advertised." If you?ve experienced the frustration of spending
hours to develop and maintain filtering rules for an email client,
and you?re currently using Outlook, this utility is for you.
"Just a quick note to everyone at Sunbelt. This is flat out the best
twenty bucks I've spent on software in a long, long time! Thanks for
a great product, at a great price, and with a great license policy
(it's really nice to pay once and get the opportunity to use the
product at work on the laptop and at home on my desktop). Keep up
the great work!" --Gordy Power.
"I'm too busy to send in comments but... I cannot believe how well
iHateSpam works!!! It's a class unto itself. I'd been playing
with junk-sender lists and complicated rules. Nothing was working.
Clicking on 'add to junk-senders list' is no more convenient than
'delete'. Other programs I tried seemed to be fancy complicated
rules that needed to be baby-sat. I'd pay $20 just for the filtering
but the addition of bounce and collaborative spam busting makes the
decision to buy a no-brainer. Actually, I'd rather have iHateSpam
than Windows. I'll recommend it highly to other spam victims.
-- Matt Wortman, University of Cincinnati
The server version is arriving soon. Stay tuned. Again, want to
see how the engine works? Download a client version and check it
out. The spam detection engine for the server version is identical
to the client version, which just became a Comp-USA best seller:
NtDump Allows Free Security Audit
The NtDump project is proud to announce the release of NtDump
Version 1.0. NtDump allows system administrators to audit their
security by viewing information normally hidden from view by
NtDump is the successor to lsadump2 and pwdump3e, combining the
functionality of both to create a better tool. It boasts features
such as 128 bit encryption and batch mode.
The 1.0 release signifies stability for NtDump. It is now
appropriate for production use.
"Auditing passwords is an essential part of the security cycle,"
says Ben Maurer, the author of NtDump, "NtDump assists auditing by
helping to automate the collection of password hashes."
"The secret dumping functionality of NtDump can help investigators
in computer crime cases," he continues "For example, if a police
department suspected that a hacker had used a specific username
and password for his dial-up account, NtDump could allow the
department to verify this suspicion by analyzing the saved
usernames and passwords in the LSA."
