  1. Sci-Hub, often known as 'The Pirate Bay for Science', has lost control of several security certificates after they were revoked by Comodo CA, the world's largest certification authority. Comodo CA informs TorrentFreak that the company responded to a court order which compelled it to revoke four certificates previously issued to the site. Sci-Hub is often referred to as the “Pirate Bay of Science”. Like its namesake, it offers masses of unlicensed content for free, mostly against the wishes of copyright holders. While The Pirate Bay will index almost anything, Sci-Hub is dedicated to distributing tens of millions of academic papers and articles, something which has turned itself into a target for publishing giants like Elsevier. Sci-Hub and its Kazakhstan-born founder Alexandra Elbakyan have been under sustained attack for several years but more recently have been fending off an unprecedented barrage of legal action initiated by the American Chemical Society (ACS), a leading source of academic publications in the field of chemistry. After winning a default judgment for $4.8 million in copyright infringement damages last year, ACS was further granted a broad injunction. It required various third-party services (including domain registries, hosting companies and search engines) to stop facilitating access to the site. This plunged Sci-Hub into a game of domain whac-a-mole, one that continues to this day. Determined to head Sci-Hub off at the pass, ACS obtained additional authority to tackle the evasive site and any new domains it may register in the future. While Sci-Hub has been hopping around domains for a while, this week a new development appeared on the horizon. Visitors to some of the site’s domains were greeted with errors indicating that the domains’ security certificates had been revoked. Tests conducted by TorrentFreak revealed clear revocations on Sci-Hub.hk and Sci-Hub.nz, both of which returned the error ‘NET::ERR_CERT_REVOKED’. Certificate revoked These certificates were first issued and then revoked by Comodo CA, the world’s largest certification authority. TF contacted the company who confirmed that it had been forced to take action against Sci-Hub. “In response to a court order against Sci-Hub, Comodo CA has revoked four certificates for the site,” Jonathan Skinner, Director, Global Channel Programs at Comodo CA informed TorrentFreak. “By policy Comodo CA obeys court orders and the law to the full extent of its ability.” Comodo refused to confirm any additional details, including whether these revocations were anything to do with the current ACS injunction. However, Susan R. Morrissey, Assistant Managing Editor at ACS, told TorrentFreak that the revocations were indeed part of ACS’ legal action against Sci-Hub. “[T]he action is related to our continuing efforts to protect ACS’ intellectual property,” Morrissey confirmed. Sci-Hub operates multiple domains (an up-to-date list is usually available on Wikipedia) that can be switched at any time. At the time of writing the domain sci-hub.ga currently returns ‘ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH’ while .CN and .GS variants both have Comodo certificates that expired last year. When TF first approached Comodo earlier this week, Sci-Hub’s certificates with the company hadn’t been completely wiped out. For example, the domain https://sci-hub.tw operated perfectly, with an active and non-revoked Comodo certificate. Still in the game…but not for long By Wednesday, however, the domain was returning the now-familiar “revoked” message. These domain issues are the latest technical problems to hit Sci-Hub as a result of the ACS injunction. In February, Cloudflare terminated service to several of the site’s domains. “Cloudflare will terminate your service for the following domains sci-hub.la, sci-hub.tv, and sci-hub.tw by disabling our authoritative DNS in 24 hours,” Cloudflare told Sci-Hub. While ACS has certainly caused problems for Sci-Hub, the platform is extremely resilient and remains online. The domains https://sci-hub.is and https://sci-hub.nu are fully operational with certificates issued by Let’s Encrypt, a free and open certificate authority supported by the likes of Mozilla, EFF, Chrome, Private Internet Access, and other prominent tech companies. It’s unclear whether these certificates will be targeted in the future but Sci-Hub doesn’t appear to be in the mood to back down. Source

  5. Comodo Cloud Antivirus 1.11.417572.505 Final of Comodo Cloud Antivirus on - free cloud antivirus, sandpit and behavioral analysis. Maximum protection and best performance when dealing with zero-day threats with real-time protection Changelog: What's New The primary goal of this release has been to be able to detect crashes in the wild and have them reported. This will allow us to provide even more stable product in future releases that works for all. New: 1. Microsoft Edge Browser Support in Sandbox: Edge browser is now fully supported in Sandbox for all versions of Windows 10, including latest creators update. 2. Crash Reporting: Comodo Cloud Antivirus will detect crash of one of it's applications and offer user to upload crash and other diagnostic data by showing dialog as shown in enclosed snap Crash_Reporting.png 3. Improved Potentially Unwanted Applications (PUA) Detection: We have created a back-end infrastructure that is analyzing domains in the wild and able to classify some of domains as PUA domains, which are short lived and mainly generate PUA files. You will see such detection via that cloud driven heuristic as shown in enclosed snap: PUA_Detection.png 4- Copy any shortcuts created by Sandboxed applications to my desktop: This check box is present under Sandbox settings. This feature has been enabled by default. Now you have a control over this and can de-select if you don't want that default behavior. 5. Controlling Network Activity of Sandboxed Applications: As a first towards providing some form of network control over applications running in Sandbox, we have introduced following two check boxes under Sandbox settings: - Block incoming connections to Sandboxed applications - Block outgoing connections from Sandboxed applications These are disabled by default and best suited for Advanced users at the moment: Limitations: Above options are confined to TCP traffic only and thus focusing on controlling data oriented network traffic only. So other protocols like UDP/ICMP, are still allowed. In next sprints, based on feedback, we will be aiming: - To cover all protocols - Allowing applications based exclusions - Creating Advanced installation option where user can change these defaults This is without introducing network Firewall and still letting Advanced users control to some extent network activities of Sandboxed applications. Aim has been to keep things light and still provide a degree of control. Fixes: 6 - "Ask for Unknown Applications" setting in Sandbox was not working as expected in Windows 10 Creators update, as had been reported in below post: https://forums.comodo.com/bug-reports-ccav/ccav-ask-for-untrusted-doesnt-properly-sandbox-files-t118954.0.html 7 - Sometime setups couldn't be cancelled in Sandbox as reported here. You should be able to cancel now. Please report if you still come across cases where setup can't be cancelled. Improvements: 8 - Sandbox alert layout has been changed as per following wishlist item, thanks BlueTesta: https://forums.comodo.com/waiting-area-please-cast-your-votes-ccav/change-so-ccav-show-the-right-color-for-the-for-the-safe-option-at-sandbox-alert-t116513.0.html 9 - Jump to Folder: When you see file path listing, this option was not available in some of places e.g. "Being Analyzed" section, now you should see it across all places.

  7. Comodo Internet Security needs to be fully up-to-date before installing the Creators Update Software developed by Comodo appears to be hit by some compatibility issues with Windows 10 Creators Update, so all users are urged to install the most recent versions before performing the upgrade to the latest OS release pushed by Microsoft earlier this month. In an advisory posted on its website, Comodo says that Comodo Internet Security (CIS) / Comodo Firewall / Comodo Antivirus must be updated to version or higher, while in the case of Comodo Cloud Antivirus, the installed version must be 1.10.413855.478 or higher. It appears that some of the users who don’t install the latest versions of Comodo software are experiencing what the security vendor describes as “severe graphical issues,” so everyone is strongly recommended to update the applications before anything else. “Do not install the Windows 10 'Creator' upgrade until you have confirmed your Comodo product is updated to one of the versions listed above. Please postpone the Windows update until you have made this check,” Comodo says in a warning. Too late? No problem In case you’ve already installed the Creators Update with the old Comodo software running on your system and you experience the glitches mentioned above, there’s no other workaround that removing the antivirus completely. If the operating system performance returns to normal, you can then re-install the latest version of Comodo to see if it makes any difference. To update Comodo Antivirus, all you have to do is to launch the app and hit the Update button, but the whole thing is a little bit better in the case of Comodo Cloud Antivirus where a manual update system is not available. In this case, the only way to go is to launching Settings > General Settings > Updates and configure the option to “Check for program updates every” to 1 day, while also enabling “Automatically install program updates.” The application should then perform an update check at a later time and offer you the newer version that’s working correctly on the Windows 10 Creators Update.

  11. Digital certificates are an essential part of online security and as the number of Internet of things devices continues to grow they'll become more important still. But as we rely more on certificates so managing them becomes more complex. Cyber security solutions company Comodo, the world's leading certificate authority, is launching the latest release of its Comodo Certificate Manager (CCM), a full-lifecycle digital certificate management platform which makes it easier for enterprises to manage their certificates. CCM allows businesses to self-administer and instantly provision Comodo certificates and to auto-discover and manage all certificates, from any certificate authority, throughout the organization. The CCM platform can automatically discover all internal and external SSL/TLS certificates and organize them into one central inventory to simplify SSL/private key information (PKI) tracking and management. It also issues alerts when certificates are about to expire. Organizations can become their own private certificate authorities too, either directly through CCM or through the use of Microsoft Active Directory certificate templates. This provides them with a cost-effective way to enrol certificates for internally-trusted applications, as well as enable enhanced security offerings such as SSL, secure logon, user and machine authentication, web server authentication and smart cards. "Based on our deep understanding of the certificate market, Comodo anticipated the challenges brought on by IoT devices and resource strapped IT teams", says John Peterson, vice president and general manager, Comodo. "With the new release, our customers can easily manage their digital certificates from a unified dashboard that provides a comprehensive view of their entire certificate inventory, providing quick access to alert settings and certificate controls, no matter where in their environment that certificate is installed". You can find out more about CCM on the Comodo website. Article source
  12. Let's Encrypt Won Its Comodo Trademark Battle – But Now Fan Tools Must Rename Why the popular letsencrypt.sh is now known as Dehydrated Popular Bash shell script LetsEncrypt.sh, which is used to manage free SSL/TLS certificates from the Let's Encrypt project, has renamed this week to avoid a trademark row. This comes in the wake of Let's Encrypt successfully fending off Comodo, which tried to cynically snatch "Let's Encrypt" for itself. LetsEncrypt.sh, written by Germany-based Lukas Schauer, is now known as Dehydrated. If you have scripts or apps that rely on pulling in his code and running it, they may stop working as a result of the name change. Dehydrated is developed independently by Schauer and is not officially affiliated with Let's Encrypt. "This project was renamed from letsencrypt.sh because the original name was violating Let's Encrypt's trademark policy. I know that this results in quite a lot of installations failing but I didn't have a choice," reads the new Dehydrated README. Schauer told El Reg this week that the Let's Encrypt project sent him "a very friendly email, asking me very kindly to change the name" of LetsEncrypt.sh, while referencing "their trademark policy and that they didn't want confusion on what really belongs to Let's Encrypt." "There was no direct threat, but it was very clear that I couldn't keep the name for much longer," Schauer added. Let's Encrypt issues free security certificates for HTTPS websites, is backed by various big names, and recommends people use the Python-based Certbot to deploy its SSL/TLS certs. Certbot, developed by the EFF, was previously called the Let's Encrypt Client. In June this year, the project was fighting off Comoodo, a paid-for SSL/TLS certificate issuer that was trying to trademark "Let's Encrypt" for itself, presumably so it could snuff out its free-for-all competition. This is despite the Let's Encrypt project first using the term way back in 2014, and that Comodo has never, er, used the words "let's encrypt" in its product branding. In July, the Let's Encrypt project prevailed and registered "Let's Encrypt" as a trademark with the US Patent and Trademark Office: it is now mark number 87096675 and belongs to San Francisco's Internet Security Research Group, which runs the organization. It even owns the pseudo mark "Let Us Encrypt" for anyone who hates apostrophe contractions. With that win comes extra responsibility: trademark holders must use and defend their marks or lose them. If you allow other businesses and groups to use your trademark willy-nilly, it may be considered abandoned by a court. Thus, the Let's Encrypt project is working on getting as many of the third-party Let's Encrypt tools – like LetsEncrypt.sh – renamed if they feature the words Let's Encrypt in order to actively protect its trademark. "I did ask [Lukas Schauer] to change the name," Let's Encrypt chief Josh Aas confirmed to The Register this week. "It's something we need to do in order to protect our trademarks and avoid creating confusion as to where the software comes from. Also, we use an open protocol that we're encouraging other certificate authorities to adopt, and when that happens we want it to be clear that ACME clients can be used with CAs besides Let's Encrypt. "These are all of the same reasons that we had the name of the official Let's Encrypt client changed to Certbot when it moved to the EFF, and we've been talking to other client projects with similar trademark issues." "All of that said, we're really grateful for Lukas's contribution to our client ecosystem," Aas added. Full disclosure: This article's author uses Let's Encrypt to provide HTTPS encryption for his personal websites. And you should use it too. Source

  16. Another case of antivirus software gone horribly wrong Google researcher launching malicious applications on the user's PC using the GeekBuddy exploit Google Project Zero security researcher Tavis Ormandy has discovered that one of Comodo's tech support tools packed with many of the company's security products leaves the door open for attackers to connect with admin privileges on the user's PC. Ormandy noticed users complaining online about a VNC server that started on their Windows systems where they installed Comodo Antivirus, Comodo Firewall, or Comodo Internet Security. Comodo tech support tool at the core of the problem The researcher investigated the issue further and discovered that to blame for this problem was a remote desktop tool called GeekBuddy, which Comodo was bundling with its security software. GeekBuddy was used by its tech support staff to debug problematic computers from afar. The application allowed Comodo staff to connect from remote locations by opening a VNC server on the user's PC. If the user was connected to the Internet, anyone could access the user's computer using this backdoor. If the computer was offline, anyone could do the same from a local network. GeekBuddy versions had no password, or used a weak one In GeekBuddy's first iterations, the tool didn't even include a password, meaning anyone could just connect to the victim's PC using an IP:port combination. Users complained about this problem, and in later GeekBuddy versions, Comodo introduced a password. The Google researcher says that this password is easy to guess, being composed of data stored in each computer's Windows Registry. "The password is simply the first 8 characters of SHA1 (Disk.Caption+Disk.Signature+Disk.SerialNumber+Disk.TotalTracks)," Ormandy revealed. Since Comodo installed GeekBuddy with full admin privileges, any attacker connecting through Comodo's support tool would have had full control over the system. To prove his point, Ormandy provided a simple three-line exploit that discovered a workstation's SHA1 string, cut the first eight digits, and supplied them to the attacker. The researcher informed Comodo of the issue on January 19, and subsequently released GeekBuddy 4.25.380415.167 to address the reported issues. Mr. Ormandy had previously probed Comodo's software when it discovered that the antivirus maker was also shipping an insecure version of the Chromium browser, dubbed internally Chromodo. Mr. Ormandy is famous for discovering security issues in many high-profile security companies like Avast, AVG, Malwarebytes, Trend Micro, FireEye, and many others. Article source
  17. Comodo Cloud Antivirus provides the best protection from malware instances, virus infection and suspicious hidden files. It is a reliable, cloud-based protection that scans quickly and updates continuously to include the latest malware information from around the globe. Unlike any other antivirus, Comodo protects you against threats that have not even been identified yet by security experts because only verified files are allowed to be run your system. The Sandbox The sandbox is a security hardened operating environment for unknown applications (those that are neither trusted/safe nor definitely malware). A sandboxed application has no opportunity to damage your computer because it is run isolated from your operating system and your files. Sandboxed items have greatly restricted access privileges and write to a virtual file system and registry. This delivers a smooth user experience by allowing unknown applications to run and operate as they normally would while denying them the potential to cause damage. By default, all 'unknown' applications detected by CCAV will be automatically run in the sandbox environment.

  19. It works under a non-GPT & non-UEFI environment. ;)I know nothing of Win8...but I do know that Acronis works with GPT, UEFI and most software RAID arrays (hardware RAID supported without plus pack) IF you install the "plus pack addon". I have used Acronis True Image 2010 for yrs now. It is an older version so it is less "cluttered" than the new versions. Also its saved my ass numerous times so I figured why update to 2011 or 12? If it works why change, dont f*** with a good thing. I am running Win7 x64 and ATIB works flawlessly. My vote would be for Acronis for a true "disaster". g/l btw - If anyone wants ATIB 2010 and the plus pack you can get them here http://www.acronis.com/support/updates/ and I have valid serial numbers for both. No activation patch needed for v2010! Lemme know if interested.
