Firewall Configuration in Windows XP

Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 offers firewall. Firewall inspects and restricts the information that is exchanged between a computer and Internet. Windows firewall is a security tool that protects your computer and its confidential data against anyone who has evil intentions and want to access your personal detail without your permission. It gives you full control to block suspicious software and worms and provides a mean to log security events.
It helps to defend your computer by blocking unsolicited traffic. Unsolicited traffic means any attempt to connect with your machine over a network connection that was not specifically requested by applications running on your system. Therefore, firewall configuration is an essential part so that your applications like Microsoft Internet Explorer and Outlook Express etc can work successfully without any pain.
Firewall configuration is not a heavy task. This blog describes how to configure firewall on a single machine.

Firewall configuration Steps:-

STEP 1: From the Microsoft Windows XP SP2 desktop, click Start, and then click Control Panel.
STEP 2: Next, in Control Panel, click Security Center.
STEP 3: Windows Firewall general settings allow you to configure these options:
On (recommended). This is the default setting (with Don’t allow exceptions not selected).
Don't allow exceptions. When this option is ON, the firewall is placed into ON with No Exceptions mode which blocks all unsolicited requests to connect to your system.
Off (not recommended). Turning OFF Windows Firewall might make your computer more vulnerable to damage from viruses, worms or intruders.

Economics and Software Piracy

The copyright violation of computer software which is usually known as software piracy involves the unauthorized copying of computer software. This kind of software piracy is very common. Many companies have copyright laws which applies to software, but the degree of control varies.

If computers software were inexpensive, would people pirate less? Lowering the prices of software would be an effective solution if profitable factors were the primary cause behind piracy. Software developer companies can lower the price of their software by producing it in large volume.

Experts in these disciplines ranging from economics, sociology and psychology have observed the motivations behind software piracy carefully. There is no internationally accepted explanation for software piracy. But experts in multiple disciplines have given a number of reasons that contribute to a person's decision to steal software.
It is true that most of the people steal software because of its cost, but let us forget the money issue for now. If the price is higher for a person then what he/she is willing to pay, that person might pirate the software. A common explanation for software piracy goes something like this: The software company is large and makes billions of dollars. One stolen piece of software would not effect the economical conditions of an organization. In other words, since the organizations can not feel the loss so, stealing from them isn't wrong.

A research into this concern suggests that most of the software pirates steal programs regardless of the software's price tag. A study suggests that most of the people view digital property differently than physical property. They don't place as great a value on software as they would to a physical object like a vehicle or a House. People think that stealing a software isn't the same as stealing a physical object because the software is being copied rather than taking a physical object. In short, stealing a software is not a crime because they feel software to have less value than physical objects.

Latest Devices and the Operating Systems

Do you think that it is you who are in-charge of controlling a computer? Think again! There is the trustworthy computer mouse, which you can move anywhere on the desktop, evoking up your music library or Internet browser at the slightest wave. Youfeel like a director while using your desktop or laptop but there is a lot going with in the computer and the the real man who handles all the task is the operating system.
Most of the desktop or laptop PCs come pre-loaded with Windows operating system. Macintosh computers come pre-loaded with Mac OS X operating system which is developed by Apple. The first thing loaded into the computer system is the operating system because a computer is useless without the operating system.
More recently, small computers have also started using the operating systems instead of any other software. Like Microsoft has launched different versions of Windows Mobile which is being used in mobiles such as Apple's iPhone, Microsoft's Zune and many more. If you like to experiment with electronic devices, you must be well aware with the facts that that operating systems are now available on many of the devices which we use every day like cell phones, wireless access points, digital players etc. The small computers used in all these daily use electronic devices are so powerful that they are now capable of running an operating system and all those applications that are used on a computer. The modern cell phone is now more powerful than a desktop computer, so this improvement makes sense and is a natural development.
The operating system organizes and controls hardware and software to make that device behave in a pliable but predictable way. For devices, an operating system creates the capability to:
serve for different purposes
interact with users in more complex ways
keep up with requirements that change over time

Over the last years, the Internet usage in organizations and homes has increased at a rapid rate which has also increased rate of spread of computer viruses and the demand for computer virus scanning and eliminating. Computer virus creators frequently target Windows operating system as it is a most widely-used operating system as compared to Apple's Mac and other operating systems.

If you have a laptop or computer working on Windows operating system and you want to be sure that your computer is secure from viruses then follow these steps:

Windows 7 zero-day bug

In this computer-savvy world, the issue of piracy is on hike. With the advent of any new technology, you can easily find its pirated version available at very low cost and sometimes for free also.

Before the release of Windows 7 Release Candidate (RC), its pirated version was made available in the market and on various bittorrent sites like Mininova.org and others. These websites clearly highlighted the warning of the potential risk to the users computers.

It was a warning for the users who were downloading the new RC builds of windows 7. This warning message was posted by Frank Fontaine on the Neowin.net discussion boards.
Various downloads carried a trojan in the setup EXE. The setup EXE is just a container which appears to be self extracting executing file. It contained Setup.exe and codec.exe.
These executable files were meant to contain trojans and other malwares that may harm your computer.

It is highly recommended and well advised not to use the leaked downloads and use the genuine copies to keep your computer healthy and working.
Recently, Microsoft has confirmed that an unpatched risk exists in Windows 7, but minimized the problem, saying by blocking two ports at the firewall, most Windows 7 users would be protected from attack.

Microsoft has accepted in a security advisory that a Microsoft-made network file- and print-sharing protocol which is a bug in Server Message Block could be used by attackers to disable Windows 7 systems.

A Canadian researcher Laurent Gaffie first reported the zero-day risk, when he lighted the bug and posted proof-of-concept attack code to the Full Disclosure security mailing list and his blog. According to Gaffie, exploiting the defect crashes Windows 7 computers so badly that the only way is to power off the computers manually.
At this time, Microsoft only said that it was investigating Gaffie's reports.

Then on 13th November, Microsoft took the next step and issued the advisory. a spokesman for Microsoft security group, Dave Forstrom has said in an e-mail that company is aware of users and the detailed exploit code that would cause Windows 7 computer to stop working. Also, the company is unaware of attacks to exploit the reported risks at this time.
Forstrom resonated Gaffie's comments that while an exploit could disable a PC, the risk could not be used by hackers to install malicious code on a Windows 7 computers.

Forstrom assured that both SMBv1 and its successor, SMBv2, contain the bug. But Windows 2000 , Windows 2003, Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 are not affected.
The company has also warned that attacks could be aimed at Internet Explorer and any other browser also. Hackers could give users specially-ready uniform resource identifier and then disable their PCs with malformed SMB packets after tricking consumers into visiting a malicious web site.

Since the new operating system was launched on Oct. 22, Gaffie's risk was the first zero-day reported and was confirmed by Microsoft in Windows 7.

Use Password Phrases for Better Security

Did you undergo that Windows support using passwords of up to 127 characters? I don’t consume passwords anymore, and I haven’t for years. I’ve switched to using password phrases instead.

Why do I consume password phrases?

You can consume uppercase, lowercase, primary characters, or modify spaces… but you are using them in context, which makes it such more uncolored to remember.

Post-it notes on your guardian are not secure. Sorry.

Even the most economical forms of password cracking, using pre-computed rainbow tables, will never be healthy to fissure a password with 20 or more characters.

These days, windows passwords can be unsmooth in no more than a few seconds. If somebody can intend fleshly admittance to your machine, they can rush soured digit of the coder tool cds acquirable every over the internet, and they will typically have your password in seconds, if they undergo what they are doing.

Even with brute obligate cracking, there is no doable way that you can fissure a password that long. Even if somebody had the caretaker technology control to do so, hopefully you modify your password every some months or so.

It may be arduous to consume password phrases on another operating system, or especially on websites, because they don’t right appendage spaces in the password, or have a diminutive password size limit. One of the tricks that I commonly do is consume a password catchword without the spaces, if I mayhap can.

So go modify your password now.
