  1. Yes. Worked properly as it did in an alternate profile. Just won't work correctly in the day2-day profile.
  2. No, it isn't. For example there are staff only sub-forums as well as Group Membership only sub-forums. Being a member of a specific Forum Group will give a member specific privileges of Forum capability and access. Examples: Honorary Member & Malware Hunters
  3. U.S. charges two Russians in connection with Dridex banking malware Russian National Charged with Decade-Long Series of Hacking and Bank Fraud Offenses Resulting in Tens of Millions in Losses and Second Russian National Charged with Involvement in Deployment of “Bugat” Malware
  4. I use Flash for easy online Content for my HTML FakeAlert ScreenShow. I'd hate to find a new format that is as easy to generate, update and upload. FakeAlert-Screens.pdf / Flash Version
  5. Please read: I'm infected - What do I do now? Then create a posted request for assistance in; Windows Malware Removal Help & Support
  6. It would not be the simple printf("string") or other simple programming construct. Assuming an Interpreted Language, it would be a compromise of the Interpreter's environment that can be the object of a hack attack. This could be the Virtual Machine of Oracle Java or the complex environment of Python. Other Script Interpreters may be native to the OS such as PowerShell, VBScript and JavaScript as examples. There the hack may exploit a vulnerability of the Interpreter or the OS itself or a Program Environment such as Microsoft Office where VBA scripting may be exploited. The more complex the Interpreter's environment, the greater the propensity of there being a vulnerability that may be exploited. A simple Interpreter such as KiXtart would be less prone and and a more complex one like Python would have a higher propensity. Such functions used in a compiled language present their own problems such as poor data evaluation for input strings, buffer overflows and compiler bugs. These can lead to bad programming which could be exploited in a hack attack.
  7. This is purely a scam and they send those emails out en masse hoping one or two bite at the bait. Just delete the email and then change your email password to a new Strong Password just to make sure. Additionally, you can enter your email address(es) in the following site and it will check to see if that email address was part of a known breach. https://haveibeenpwned.com/ Please reference: ----------------- US FBI PSA - Extortionists Increasingly Using Recipients' Personal Information To Intimidate Victims US FTC Consumer Information - How to avoid a Bitcoin blackmail scam MyOnlinesecurity - attempted-blackmail-scam-watching-porn BleepingComputer - Beware of Extortion Scams Stating They Have Video of You on Adult Sites Malwarebytes' Blog - Sextortion emails: They’re probably not watching you Malwarebytes Forum sample thread - Got strange threating email.

  9. To get that kind of speed, the CO would have to be your neighbour. Look for the POTs DEMARC. Of course, you can ask the landlord. https://www.increasebroadbandspeed.co.uk/2012/graph-ADSL-speed-versus-distance
  10. That's what I thought. Chances are the apartment complex is on Cable or FTTP. The DSLAM is not in a CO but may be in a basement electrical room. In effect the CO is that electrical room. It is less expensive to take advantage of POTs already existing in the building than running Cable or Optical Fiber to each apartment. DSL uses Quadrature Amplitude Modulation ( QAM ) and requires Twisted Pair wiring and the speed is dependent upon the distance between the DSL MODEM and the DSLAM. Since the distance is so short, the bit-rate can be very high. In fact that is what Very High-Speed DSL (VDSL) is all about. The speed you get is appropriate for such an arrangement and you may be even closer to the DSLAM.
  11. There is no reason to successively reply to the thread sman. There may be lots of reasons why exile360 has aDSL. This could be availability of services, spectrum of service providers, locality and other limiting factors. additionally $64/month is a market price for POTs and Internet. My parents lived three miles from me and wile I enjoy symmetrical FTTP services, it was not available to them and I believe they were paying ~$75/month for aDSL at a lower bit-rate due to their distance from the CO.
  12. I guess you are close enough to the CO. BTW: Are you in an apartment building or house ?
  13. I'm sorry... what does that chart mean ? What is "Completeness of Vision" ? What is "Ability to Execute" ? From what is the data derived ? What information is is it supposed to purport and what are we, the viewer, intended to take-away or assess from it ?
