Security Software Programs / Re: down
« Last post by Charyb on February 28, 2019, 01:51:31 PM »
I visited to see if there were any new program updates and, once again, there are no updates but there is an expired certificate. Exactly the same as last year. On top of this, I have approximately 5 unanswered emails.

This guy is not taking care of business like he should. What a waste of, once was, a great product.
As far as I know Microsoft has stopped the 1809 update until further testing is completed. ....
That's been my experience:

10-03-18 - I was having some BSOD problems with version 1809, so I went back to version 1803.

10-09-18 - I clicked on "Check for Updates" The Cumulative update, the Malicious Software Removal Tool, and the Flash Player updates for version 1803 were all downloaded and installed. There was no attempt to reinstall version 1809.

November, December, January, & early February - Got all the updates for version 1803 via "Check for Updates", there was no attempt to install version 1809.....

02-27-18 - I clicked on "Check for Updates". The second Cumulative update (KB44870290) for February installed.

02-28-18 (TODAY) -  I clicked on "Check for Updates". As I type this, Feature update to Windows 10, version 1809 is installing currently at 47%.....

Should I be worried?

Web News / WinRAR Patches 19-Year-Old Security Vulnerability

Doing a quick search here at LzD, numerous logs showed up with WinRAR listed.  If you have WinRAR installed, it is time to either update it or remove it. 

From WinRAR patches 19 year old security bug that put millions at risk - The Verge
WinRAR has patched a 19-year-old security vulnerability that allowed attackers to extract malicious software to anywhere on your hard drive. The vulnerability was discovered by researchers at Check Point Software Technologies, who realised that WinRAR’s support for the effectively defunct ACE archive format meant that it was still relying on an insecure and dated DLL file from 2006.

Security Alerts & Briefings / Adobe Shockwave Player EoL (End of Life)
« Last post by Corrine on February 26, 2019, 05:12:44 PM »
Personally, I haven't used Shockwave Player for years and it has never been installed on either of my 2008 devices.  If it is installed on your PC, it is time to consider uninstalling it as it is reaching EoL as of April 9, 2019.

From End of Life (EOL) for Adobe Shockwave:

Effective April 9, 2019, Adobe Shockwave will be discontinued and the Shockwave player for Windows will no longer be available for download.

Companies with existing Enterprise licenses for Adobe Shockwave continue to receive support until the end of their current contracts.

Adobe Shockwave is a browser-based multimedia platform for interactive applications and video games. Retiring the Shockwave player for Windows is the last step in a multi-year process: Adobe Director, an authoring tool for Shockwave content, was discontinued on February 1, 2017 and the Shockwave player for macOS was discontinued on March 1, 2017.

Adobe continues to offer a rich set of content creation tools through Creative Cloud, including Adobe Animate for authoring interactive content for multiple platforms, such HTML5 Canvas, WebGL, Flash/Adobe AIR, and others.

(@Digerati, that happens on occasion.  I've had email from Microsoft personnel marked that way & just specify that it isn't junk. If it continues, add the address to your contact list & that should stop it.)

For the US is starts on March 10, 2019 so 2 weeks.

This is the easier change. I have candles at every window and need to reset 14 timers as well as all the clocks.
