  5. "The attack is still continuing to take place [as attackers are] changing their methods at every moment," says Square Enix. Final Fantasy XIV's ongoing network issues are the result of DDoS attacks, according to publisher Square Enix. In a post on the game's official website the company offered an update on server problems that have plagued the game since the launch of its newest expansion, Stormblood. The update states North American servers are being attacked and that the technical team is having some trouble resolving the issues. "We have confirmed that since June 16th, we have been experiencing DDoS attacks from an anonymous third-party targeting the Final Fantasy XIV game servers on the NA data center," reads the post. "Our technical staff is taking every possible measure to address this issue but the attack is still continuing to take place by changing their methods at every moment. We will continue to monitor and work on recovery from every possible angle." As noted in the post, DDoS attacks are designed to flood serves with information so that it struggles to handle the load, thus crippling performance. DDoS attacks are often concerted efforts involving numerous PCs all targeting the same servers. "Due to this attack, our game servers, network equipment, and network connection are being hit with heavy load at an extensive level, which is causing a disconnection from the game and login difficulties," Square Enix added. "Our technical staff is continuing to work on countermeasures for this issue." The company also assured players that, despite the attacks, the personal information connected to Final Fantasy XIV accounts is not in danger. "With the attack we are currently experiencing, only a massive number of access attempts are being made, so character data and personal information registered to our customers' accounts are not in danger of being exposed." An early-access period for Stormblood began on June 16 for anyone who pre-ordered the game, but all players were allowed onto game servers on June 20, with the official launch of the expansion. A big patch for the game was recently released and we got the chance to talk with the company about reinventing the MMO for beginners. Article source
  6. And it's a nasty one if the user you crack has admin rights French security outfit Sysdream has gone public with a vulnerability in the admin interface for OpenVPN's server. The finding is a bit awkward because it comes after OpenVPN's client got a clean bill of health in two independent security audits earlier this month. The attack, designated CVE-2017-5868, was published by Sysdream's Julien Boulet 90 days after the company says OpenVPN first acknowledged the issue. While waiting for a fix, this OSS-SEC post suggests users put a reverse proxy between the server and the Internet, and restrict access to the Web interface. The server's mistake is that it doesn't escape the carriage return/line feed (CR/LF) character combination. “Exploiting these vulnerabilities, we were able to steal a session from a victim and then access the application (OpenVPN-AS) with his rights.” the post says, adding that there are serious consequences if the victim is an administrator account.” By opening the OpenVPN-AS application, the victim receives a valid session cookie pre-authentication. That session cookie can be set by the attacker using a malicious URL; and when the victim completes login, their profile and rights will be associated with the attacker's cookie. In fairness, The Register notes that for such popular software with a big attack surface, OpenVPN has a fairly low turnover of security vulnerabilities. Article source
  7. At its Financial Analyst Day on Thursday, AMD made a number of announcements about its upcoming product launches and where it will focus in 2017. The company has historically used these events to forecast its performance over the next few years and is riding high after the successful launch of Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5. Investors, however, have been jittery about the manufacturer’s stock performance so far this year and AMD was also looking to calm the waters as it rolls out new hardware. We’ve known the codename for AMD’s Ryzen server CPUs, Naples, but the company unveiled the actual brand name today. Henceforth, AMD’s server CPUs will be sold under the Epyc brand. It’s pronounced like the ordinary word, and as brand names go…maybe it’ll grow on people? That’s pretty much the best we’ve got right now. Opteron was a stronger product name in our personal opinion, but ultimately, customers aren’t going to care what it’s called, they’ll care how it performs. One point AMD made from the beginning of the event is that it focused on data centers when it brought Zen to market. We haven’t seen much in the way of server benchmarks on the core yet, but Ryzen 5 and 7 have been at their strongest when competing against Intel in workstation workloads like video editing and 3D rendering. Server workloads tend to be their own unique animal, but AMD enjoyed tremendous success with Opteron when it aimed Athlon 64 at the data center first, consumer workloads second. It’s not surprising to see company doubling down on this strategy again. Diving into data centers AMD’s argument for its own reentry into the data center acknowledges that the company’s market share is effectively 0 percent today. The company’s position is that while it’s been driven out of the market in recent years, it has previously established its chops as a provider of server solutions from single-socket blade servers to multi-socket systems. The company’s Epyc processors will offer up to 32 cores with 128 lanes of PCI Express 3.0 connectivity and eight memory channels. This combination of massive memory bandwidth and core counts could give AMD a leg up on Intel in three key areas. First, AMD can offer an enormous amount of memory bandwidth on a single-socket system with all eight of its memory channels. Intel, in contrast, is limited to just four channels. Granted, Intel’s memory controller efficiency might prove to be higher than AMD’s, but eight channels is hard to argue with, particularly in a one-socket system, and the two-socket comparison is pretty strongly tilted for AMD. Second, AMD is purposefully eschewing Intel’s habit of locking off certain capabilities to specific SKUs. Intel’s Xeon lines are subdivided by capability — some SKUs are for single-socket systems, some support two sockets, some range up to four sockets. AMD is simply declaring that all versions of all Epyc chips will have the same I/O, the same memory channels, and the same capabilities. Third, AMD wants to position Epyc as an ideal match for machine learning and artificial intelligence workloads. To that end, it’s built a single-socket CPU with enough I/O connectivity to handle multiple Radeon Instinct cards. AMD noted that in other servers, customers are required to buy multi-socket systems simply to have enough connectivity to run a full complement of GPUs in them, as shown above. The 128 lanes of PCI Express connectivity that Epyc offers, in contrast, can drive six cards (16 lanes each) from one socket, with 32 lanes of PCI Express 3.0 left over for intra-chip communication. One point of clarification here: Unlike Intel, which offers 40 PCI Express 3.0 lanes in a single socket and 80 lanes in a dual socket, AMD offers 128 lanes in both a 1S and 2S configuration. In the two-socket system, 64 lanes of PCIe 3.0 are dedicated to intra-chip communication, with each CPU offering 64 lanes of chipset I/O. It’s going to take time for AMD to build any kind of market share in server, where it’s basically starting from scratch, but the company seemed bullish on the prospects for its CPU architecture and where Zen will take it in the data center space. But the company appears determined to retake share in a market where its 1S and 2S platforms are going to compare quite well against what Intel is fielding. If Naples is as strong in server workloads as Ryzen has been in workstation and desktop work, Intel could have a serious fight on its hands. AMD’s new platform could also win fans from companies building deep learning and AI platforms that want to field the maximum number of cards per socket without paying a premium for multi-socket solutions.

  8. A mysterious issue is affecting the default Windows NTP server (time.windows.com), according to multiple complaints coming from Reddit and Twitter users, screwing up everyone's computer clocks. Based on reports, the time.windows.com NTP server is sending Windows users the incorrect time, sometimes off by seconds, but in other cases, off even by hours. The issue was spotted today, April 3, early in the morning, and is ongoing for at least 10 hours. The impact was felt immediately by servers that rely on the Windows NTP service to schedule and execute tasks. Unhappy admins found their servers launching routines early or too late, botching scripts and crashing their applications. Home users were affected as well but to a lesser degree. Most users probably didn't even notice. Based on Twitter activity, most affected users are located in Asia. Microsoft did not respond to a request for details in time for this article's publication. How to change NTP servers Until the issue is cleared up, users that rely on the accurate time values can change their computer's NTP server. They can do this by following these steps: Step 1: Press the Start button and type "Date and Time" in the search field. Step 2: Open the control panel listing. Step 2.5: For Windows 10 users, if you chose the "Date and time" settings option, choose the "Additional date, time, & regional settings" option, which will bring up another window where you have to click "Set the time and date" option. Step 3: In the popup floating window that appears, select the "Internet Time" tab. Step 4: Here, click "Change settings..." Step 5: Enter a new NTP server. This can be "time.nist.gov" or "ntp.pool.org" UPDATE: A Microsoft representative acknowledged the issue. "We investigated and quickly resolved the issue our time service experienced," the Microsoft spokesperson wrote in an email. Tests carried out by Bleeping Computer confirmed the Windows NTP serrvice is up and running at the time of this update. Source
  9. In this week’s Tales From Ransomware, we take a look at a ransomware that isn’t really ransomware. Nor even malware. But it can hijack your server anyway. A few days ago we saw a typical Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) attack, which lead us to believe that it was a similar attack to the one we told you about a few months ago which cybercriminals are using to infect devices with ransomware. But we were very wrong. First of all because instead of encrypting data, it locks the desktop with a password that the victim doesn’t know. Secondly, it does not demand a ransom (!) in exchange for the credential, but rather seeks to keep the device locked for as long as possible so that it can be used for bitcoin mining for as long as possible. And thirdly, it doesn’t use malware as such. Once they’ve gained access to your machine by brute force (this particular server was fielding 900 attempts daily) the attacker copies a file called BySH01.zip. This in turn contains: BySH01.exe (executable through AutoIt) 7za.exe (goodware, the well-known free tool 7zip) tcping.exe (goodware, a tool for performing TCP pings) MW_C.7z (a compressed password-protected file), which contains: An application –goodware for bitcoin mining An application –goodware for blocking the Windows desktop The attacker runs the BySH01.exe file, and the following interface appears: Кошелек – Wallet; Имя воркера – User Name; Количество ядер – Number of cores; Пароль – Password; Локация – Location; Пусть установки – Installation path; Расширения системы – Processor Extension; Порт – Port; Добавить в автозагрузку – Add to startup; Установить – Install; Удалить – Delete; Тест – Test; Пинг – Ping; Локер – Locker With the help of our colleagues at Panda Russia, those of us who don’t know Russian can get an approximate idea of what its telling us with the above word list. Basically, the bitcoin mining application uses this interface to configure how many cores to use, what extension of processor instructions to use, what “wallet” to send the bitcoins to, etc. Once the desired configuration is selected, the attacker clicks on Установить to install and run the bitcoins mining application. The application is called CryptoNight, which was designed for mining bitcoins using CPUs. Then they click on Локер, which installs and runs the desktop lock application. It is the commercial application Desktop Lock Express 2, modified only so that the information shown in the properties of the file are the same as those of the system file svchost.exe. Finally it clears all the files used in the attack except CryptoNight and Desktop Lock Express 2. Desktop Lock Express 2, the application used by the attackers. We detected and blocked several attacks in different countries. Examples such as this one show how, once again, cybercriminals take advantage of weak passwords that can be guessed using the brute force method over a given period of time. Malware is no longer necessary to gain access to the system, so it’s up to you to use a robust password that will keep out unwanted visitors. Tips for the System Admin In addition to using a solution like Adaptive Defense, which detects and prevents this kind of attack, a couple of tidbits of advice for all administrators who have to have an open RDP: Configure it to use a non-standard port. What 99.99% of cybercriminals do is track all Internet on TCP and UDP ports 3389. They might bother to track others, but they do not have to, since most do not change these ports. Those who do change ports do so because they are careful about security, which probably means that their credentials are already complex enough to not be gotten by brute force within any reasonable amount of time. Monitor failed RDP connection attempts. Brute force attacks can easily be identified in this way, since they use automated systems and can be seen making a new attempt every few seconds.

  13. In Firefox 44, Mozilla added Web Push capability to the browser. This gives websites the ability to notify users when something important needs to be communicated. For example, you may have a web app that wants to notify users when they receive a WebRTC call, or when a new discussion is initiated in a group chat. Or with a message service, you may want to notify users when they have new messages available. Dan Callahan covered the details of adding WebPush to your Web Apps in an article on Hacks early this year. You can also get more documentation on the Push API from MDN or take a look at the ServiceWorker Cookbook for examples of how to use Web Push as well as many other service worker scenarios. While Web Push has many benefits, it does come with some drawbacks. For example, if you notify an offline user of unread messages, when they come back to the browser later, the user may be inundated with many notifications at once. This can be mitigated a bit on certain operating systems, but a better way is now available. The Mozilla Push Service now offers the capability to provide topics for notification messages. This means that any user agent subscribed to the application will only be provided with the last message in a topic when it returns from an offline state. The Push Service replaces all previous push messages with the same topic and only displays the most recent one. In the example referenced above, all the unread messages are grouped into one topic, and when an offline user opens the browser they only get one message from the topic, which is the last one received. As this is a change to the WebPush specification, to get this to work you will need to modify the server code that actually pushes the messages to the Push Service. Essentially, you must add a header named “Topic” to the push message. Take a look at my test example for topics on github for a simple example. You can see how the header is added in the pusher/main.py file with the following code: pywebpush.WebPusher(sub_info).send( args.msg, headers={"topic": topic}, ttl=args.ttl, ) If you are using Marco Castelluccio’s NodeJS web-push library, you can add the header in the following way: webPush.sendNotification(req.body.endpoint, { TTL: req.body.ttl, payload: req.body.payload, userPublicKey: req.body.key, userAuth: req.body.authSecret, headers: { topic: topic } }) Article source
  14. Microsoft’s Updating Terminology Is Atrocious The article looks at Microsoft's new naming system for Windows updates for monthly patches for Windows 8 and 7.1 operating systems. Microsoft revealed some time ago that it wanted to bring the cumulative update scheme from its Windows 10 operating system to Windows 8.1 and 7. The new scheme started in October 2016 and brought along with it massive changes in regards to the downloading and deployment of updates for Windows 7 and 8.1 operating systems. The move removed control from admins and home users alike, as it introduced an all or nothing approach to updating. Previously, you could install or block individual updates, for instance if they caused issues on the system. With the new scheme, you cannot do that anymore as all updates are deployed as a single update. This means that you need to remove the whole update -- all good ones and the ones causing issues -- if you run into issues. The new updating scheme raises another question: how are bugs caused by security updates handled? If they are patched by non-security updates, then security-only systems won't get them. Microsoft's updating terminology is atrocious But there is another issue, one that has not been talked about that much. Microsoft publishes two update packages for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 each month. One includes only security updates released in that month, the other includes those security updates and non-security updates. The second may furthermore include patches from previous months on top of that. The designated names for these updates are: [month] Security Only Quality Update for [operating systems]. Example: November, 2016 Security Only Quality Update for Windows 8 and Server 2008 R2 [month] Security Monthly Quality Rollup for [operating systems]. Example: November, 2016 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 The naming scheme is confusing in my opinion even though there are indicators that tell you which is which. Here are the pointers: The security-only update package for a given month has "security only" in the title. The all updates package for a given month as "rollup" in the title. This is the only way to distinguish between those two update packages. It is important for Windows users and administrators who only want to install the security updates but not the regular updates. It is unclear why Microsoft made them sound this similar. While I can understand the company's desire to reflect that both include security updates, it would have been better if it would have picked a slightly different terminology for the updates: Security Only Update for Rollup Update for This would make things a lot clearer and prevent much of the confusion surrounding the current terminology for update packages for Windows. Now you: What's your take on the new updating terminology? Source
  15. In the last year since VMware announced the VMware Validated Designs at VMworld 2015, we’ve delivered on two iterations of the VMware Validated Design for SDDC. The first release, VMware Validated Design for SDDC 1.0, became available as a special offering through VMware Professional services in the spring of 2015. That was then followed by the first generally available release, VMware Validated Designs for SDDC 2.0, which was available in mid-Summer. Today, we announce general availability of the VMware Validated Design for SDDC 3.0. The engineering team has been doing a tremendous job incorporating feedback from early adopters to extend the applicability of the designs and add more elements and capabilities. This generally available release includes all the features and capabilities of the existing prior 2.0 release along with some additional improvements and updates. Let’s take a look at some of the key improvements being incorporated into 3.0: Flexible Deployment with Distributed Management and Workload Architecture This VMware Validated Design for SDDC 3.0 simplifies the initial startup, reduces startup hardware cost, and provides flexibility for future growth by transitioning to a flexible distributed management and workload architecture. In prior versions, the functional roles of the pods were separated into: management, edge, and compute (also referred to as workload) pods. While this is a tremendously scalable architecture many customers and partners wanted to see the option to start smaller and have the ability to grow without requiring the fully distributed architecture at startup. This has been accomplished by collapsing the Edge Pod and first Compute Pod into a Shared Edge and Compute Pod. In 3.0 the Management Pod instantiates all the management, automation and operations solutions for the Sotware-Defined Data Center. These include*: vSphere Virtual SAN NSX vRealize Operations w/ Management Packs vRealize Log Insight w/ Content Packs\ vRealize Automation vRealize Orchestrtor vRealize Business for Cloud Site Recovery Manager vSphere Data Protection** The Shared Edge and Compute Pod provides north-south routing and advanced networking services to workloads in the SDDC. It also provides an location to run the initial workloads in the SDDC. As an SDDC grows, additional Compute Only Pods are added to run more business workloads. And, if desired, the edge services in the SDDC can be separated and powered by a dedicated Edge Pod in the future. Dual-Region Deployment and Operational Guidance The release includes the expansion from single-region deployment and operations guidance to dual-region. A dual-region deployment allows an organization to implement an SDDC across two geographical locations, providing portability of applications, and enabling disaster recovery capability of SDDC management, automation and operations solutions between regions. Think San Francisio and Los Angeles, as an example.

  16. VPN provider Perfect Privacy has had two of its servers seized by Dutch police, as part of an active investigation. Police bypassed the VPN service and went directly to the company's hosting provider, I3D, who complied with a subpoena requesting the hardware. At the time of writing, it remains unclear why the servers in question were taken. VPN services are a great tool for people who want to increase their privacy and security online. While most people use them for legitimate purposes, VPNs are also frequently linked to nefarious activity, as criminals prefer to stay anonymous online too. As a result, VPNs regularly come up when police investigate online crime. This is also what appears to have happened with two servers that were leased by VPN provider Perfect Privacy. A few days ago the company informed its customers that two of its servers had been seized by the police in Rotterdam, Netherlands. The authorities went directly to the hosting company I3D and the VPN provider itself wasn’t contacted by law enforcement. “Currently we have no further information since the responsible law enforcement agency did not get in touch with us directly, we were merely informed by our hoster,” Perfect Privacy says. Despite losing control over two servers, Perfect Privacy assures its customers that no personally identifiable data is present on the seized hardware. Like many other VPNs, the company maintains a strict no-logging policy. “Since we are not logging any data there is currently no reason to believe that any user data was compromised,” the VPN provider says. TorrentFreak reached out to I3D, who told us that they can’t comment on any specifics. However, the hoster stresses that it handles these type of requests in compliance with the law, while keeping the interests of their customers in mind. “When the Dutch police contact us with a subpoena, we work with them in a professional manner and ensure their request and our responses are in compliance with the Dutch law,” I3D informs us. “We think with the affected customer as well, for example by making temporary capacity available so the customer does not suffer extended downtime during the investigation.” Perfect Privacy confirms that they are happy with how I3D handled this issue. Two replacement servers were quickly put in place meaning that the seizures didn’t result in any significant downtime. In any case, it is good to see that the provider in question is being open about what happened. Unfortunately, that’s not always obvious for companies in this position. TorrentFreak

    FileZilla Server 0_9_58

    Description FileZilla is a cross-platform FTP, SFTP, and FTPS client with a vast list of features, which supports Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and more. FileZilla's dynamic tools help you move files between your local machine and your Web site's server effortlessly. For example, Filezilla lets you compare your files with in-directory server files to manage file syncing. You can also tab browse between servers and transfer files to them simultaneously, as well as edit server files on the go. And Filezilla is available in 47 languages worldwide! FileZilla Web Site Categories File Sharing, File Transfer Protocol (FTP),Networking License GNU General Public License version 2.0 (GPLv2) Features FTP client and server Supports FTP, FTPS and SFTP Built-in file management Advanced file settings Reduces timeout errors Multi-language support A reliable FTP server that you can customize and set up according to your exact requirements and preferences, so that users can connect without too much hassle FileZilla Server is one of the best FTP servers currently on the market, offering a wide array of features, all available in an open-source package. The program is undoubtedly a top product, so users are required to pay attention to every single step included in the installer. Besides the fact that one needs to select the components to be installed, the user can pick from up to three options regarding the way the FileZilla Server should be started: as a service with Windows, manually or automatically. The main window of the program is actually the one where the log file is displayed, informing you exactly what's happening with the service, regardless if we're talking about connections, transfers or other actions. But the most important part is the configuration. There are three main sections offering customization options, “Setup”, “Users” and “Groups”, each with its very own pack of settings. From the “Settings” section you can change basically everything about the server, including IP bindings, IP filter, passive mode security, security tools, logging, admin interface, speed limits, autoban, SSL and TLS settings and file transfer compression. The “Users” and “Groups” sections are obviously reserved to accounts settings, with dedicated tools concerning shared folders, speed limits and IP filters. FileZilla Server doesn't eat up too much of your CPU and RAM, and sits quietly in the System Tray. Minor slowdowns may occur when the connected clients download files at high speeds. But all in all, there is no doubt that FileZilla Server is a top product and is worth the time you spend with it. https://sourceforge.net/projects/filezilla/files/FileZilla Server/0.9.58/FileZilla_Server-0_9_58.exe/download
  18. Tor should disable IPv6 for its servers until the protocol is properly supported by its software, says crypto-guru Error when checking Tor support via IPv6 Frederic Jacobs, a former developer for Whisper Systems where he worked on the Signal app, discovered an interesting problem that will likely scare a lot of Tor users not acquainted with the Tor Browser's underbelly. For some years now, the Tor Project has made available the check.torproject.org web page as a means for Tor users to detect when their Tor Browser is improperly configured and is leaking their real IP address. The service uses a simplistic UI and tells people either "Congratulations. This browser is configured to use Tor" in a green font, or "Sorry. You are not using Tor" in big bright red letters. For users where Tor Browser's setup is a matter of life & death, this page, and its output, matters. Lots of people use it as their homepage. IPv6 support in Tor Browser is to blame Jacobs discovered a problem for users connecting to Tor via IPv6, the Internet addressing system that evolved to replace the classic IPv4 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx format. Even if his Tor Browser was properly set up, he still received this error. After digging around for an answer, Jacobs discovered the root of the problem. "What likely happened is that the exit node connected to check.torproject.org over IPv6," he explains. "Since Tor doesn’t have full support for IPv6 yet, the exit node appeared as unknown, hence triggering this warning." Jacobs raised the issue with the Tor Project on their developer mailing list and recommended that Tor nodes not use IPv6 at all until the Tor Browser fully supports this feature. This shouldn't be a big issue since IPv6 support worldwide is still under 15 percent, according to Google. The Tor Project still has more than enough time to properly support IPv6 in the Tor network and browser, but it would be a good idea not to scare or confuse its users until then. Article source
  19. FalseCONNECT Vulnerability Affects Software From Apple, Microsoft, Oracle, More Multiple other vendors may still be affected According to Decime, there is a flaw in how applications from several vendors respond to HTTP CONNECT requests via HTTP/1.0 407 Proxy Authentication Required responses. FalseCONNECT explained for dummies This flaw manifests itself only in network environments where users utilize proxy connections to get online. This type of setup is often used in enterprise networks where companies deploy powerful firewalls. Decime explains that an attacker that has a foothold in a compromised network and has the ability to listen to proxy traffic can sniff for HTTP CONNECT requests sent to the local proxy. When the attacker detects one of these requests, he then replies instead of the real proxy server, and issues a 407 Proxy Authentication Required response, asking the user for a password to access a specific service. Because the HTTP CONNECT requests are unencrypted, the attacker knows when the victim wants to access sensitive accounts such as email or Intranet servers, even if those services are delivered via HTTPS. The attacker can force the user to authenticate, sending the responses to him instead, hence the vulnerability's name of FalseCONNECT. WebKit software more vulnerable than others "WebKit-based clients are vulnerable to additional vectors due to the fact that HTML markup and JavaScript are rendered by the client Document Object Model (DOM) in the context of the originally requested HTTPS domain," a US-CERT alert reads. WebKit is used for software such as Chrome, iTunes, Google Drive, Safari, and many mobile applications. Multiple software vendors deploy applications that can handle proxy connections. Until know, Apple, Microsoft, Oracle, and Opera have acknowledged their products are affected. Lenovo said this bug does not impact its software. Other software vendors that are still evaluating the FalseCONNECT bug and may be affected include multiple Linux distros, Cisco, Google, HP, IBM, Juniper, Mozilla, Nokia, OpenBSD, SAP, Sony, and others. Technical details about this flaw can be found on a dedicated website. US-CERT has also issued an alert, in which users can track vendor responses for the FalseCONNECT vulnerability. Source

  21. Which of your hard drives is the fastest, and is it really as fast as the manufacturer promised? Whether you have a desktop PC or a server, Microsoft’s free Diskspd utility will stress test and benchmark your hard drives. NOTE: A previous version of this guide explained using Microsoft’s old “SQLIO” utility. However, Microsoft now only offers the “Diskspd” utility, which replaces SQLIO, so we’ve updated this guide with brand new instructions. Why Use Diskspd? If you want to know the IO ability of your drives, Diskspd makes an excellent tool. Diskspd will tell you the maximum capacity a server’s hard drives can handle, or point you at the fastest hard drive you should use for heavy workloads (or just demanding PC gaming) on a desktop PC. As an example, let’s suppose that we have three drives on a server: an F drive, G drive and C drive. If we have our MDF on the F drive, the LDF on the G drive and our OS on our C drive, we can evaluate whether our setup is effective. For example, if the MDF file is the busiest file with the most reads and writes, we’d want it to be on the fastest drive. Using the above example with the graphs (representing the writes and reads for the OS, LDF and MDF), we would place our MDF file on the fastest drive since our MDF is the busiest. If our Diskspd analysis showed that F was our fastest drive, we would place our MDF file on drive F. Where to Download Diskspd Microsoft offers this excellent tool for free, and you can download it from Microsoft Technet. It’s even open source, so you can download and inspect or modify the source code from GitHub. Diskspd has been tested to work on desktop versions of Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10, as well as Windows Server 2012, 2012 R2, and 2016 Technical Preview 5. Once you’ve downloaded it, you’ll need to extract the contents of the .zip file to a folder on your computer. Note that the archive contains three different “diskspd.exe” files. The one in the “amd64fre” folder is for 64-bit Windows PCs, while the one in the “x86fre” folder is for 32-bit Windows PCs. If you’re using a 64-bit version of Windows, and you probably are, you’ll likely want to use the 64-bit version. How Do I Perform a Stress Test? To perform a single test, you can simply invoke a Diskspd command from an Administrator-enabled Command Prompt. On Windows 10 or 8.1, right-click the Start button and select “Command Prompt (Admin)”. On Windows 7, locate the “Command Prompt” shortcut in the Start menu, right-click it, and select “Run as Administrator. First, use cd to switch to the directory containing the Diskspd.exe you want to use: cd c:\path\to\diskspd\amd64fre In our case, that looked like the command below. Now, run the Diskspd command with the options you want to use. You’ll find a complete list of command line options and usage information in the 30-page DiskSpd_Documentation.pdf file included in the Diskspd archive you downloaded. However, if you want to get up and running quickly, here’s an example command. The following command sets the block size to 16K (-b16K), runs a 30 second test (-d30), disables hardware and software cashing (-Sh), measures latency statistics (-L), uses two IO requests per thread (-o2) and four threads (-t4) per target, uses random access rather than sequential writing (-r), performs 30% write operations and 70% read operations (-w30). It creates a file at c:\testfile.dat of 50 MB in size (-c50M). If you wanted to benchmark your D: drive instead, for example, you’d specify d:\testfile.dat Diskspd.exe -b16K -d90 -Sh -L -o2 -t4 -r -w30 -c50M c:\testfile.dat After however long you specify–30 seconds in the above test–the test results will be printed to the Command Prompt and you can view them. Consult the results and you’ll see the average MB/s the drive reached during the test–how many write operations were performed a second, how many read operations were performed a second, and the total amount of input/output (IO) operations per second. These statistics are most useful when comparing multiple drives to see which is faster for certain operations, but they’ll also tell you exactly how much IO a hard drive can handle. You can also dump the results to a text file you can view later with the > operator. For example, the below command runs the same command as above and places the results in the C:\testresults.txt file. Diskspd.exe -b16K -d90 -Sh -L -o2 -t4 -r -w30 -c50M c:\testfile.dat > c:\testresults.txt Repeat this process for your other drives, and compare. Customizing Your Stress Test Command If you’re trying to figure out which is the fastest hard drive for a certain workload, you should create a command that best matches that workload. For example, if it’s a server that only reads data and doesn’t write, you should perform a test of 100% reads that doesn’t measure any write performance. Run that stress test across multiple drives and compare the results to see which is faster for that type of work. Note that there are many, many other command line options you can specify for Diskspd.exe. You’ll find the most complete, up-to-date list in the documentation that comes with the downloaded Diskspd.exe file itself, but here are some important options: -w denotes percentage of write and read operations. For example, entering -w40 will perform 40% write operations and thus 60% read operations. Entering -w100 will perform 100% write operations. Omitting the -w switch or entering -w0 will perform 0% write operations and thus 100% read operations. -r or -s determines whether the test uses either random access or sequential operations. Specify -r for random access or -s for sequential. This helps you test for either random file access (often a bunch of small files) or sequential file access (often one large file that’s read or written all at once). -t denotes number of threads that will be run at the same time, such as -t2 for two threads or -t6 for six threads. -o denotes number of outstanding requests per thread, such as -o4 for four requests or -o2 for two results. -d is the duration of the tests in seconds, such as -d90 for 90 seconds or -d120 for 120 seconds. -b is the block size of the reads or writes, such as -b16K for a 16K block size or -b64K for a 64K block size. Using these options, you can tweak the benchmark command to see how your disk performs under varying loads. Once you’ve written a command that you feel approximates the type of workload you perform on your PC, you can stress test several drives and see which offers the best performance. Credit to
  22. xDedic, a marketplace selling access to hacked servers, has reemerged as a Tor domain after a report that exposed its illicit activity sparked its operators to take it down last month. After Kaspersky Lab researchers revealed in mid-June that they counted over 70,000 hacked servers made available for purchase on xDedic, some for as low as just $6, the marketplace operators closed the virtual shop on June 16. However, with roughly 30,000 users a month, the storefront was too popular to disappear for good, and intelligence firm Digital Shadows saw it re-emerge only a week later, but as a Tor domain now. In an incident report shared with SecurityWeek, Digital Shadows reveals that a user named xDedic posted on 24 Jun 2016 a link to the new site on the criminal forum exploit[.]in. The user, who “had an established reputation on the forum and has been previously identified as associated with the site,” posted the link on a Russian language forum thread titled “xDedic спалили” (xDedic burned). The original xDedic site was established in November 2014, and provided detailed information on each of the servers available for purchase on it: price, location, speed, anti-virus installed, and more. Kaspersky Lab researchers discovered 70,000 servers available on the marketplace, but later revealed that these might have been only the items that were the least attractive to buyers. Several days after the initial report was published, the researchers received information that over 176,000 unique hacked servers were traded on xDedic between October 2014 and February 2016 and that many more might have been traded since February. The hacked servers were located in 173 countries and came from 416 unique sellers. The prices for these servers ranged from $6 to $6,000, though only around 50 servers cost more than $50. The new xDedic site is identical in design to the previous one, but Digital Shadows researchers say that the marketplace’s operators didn’t import the user accounts from the initial website, meaning that accounts could be freely registered. However, they also discovered that a $50 credit was required after registration for an account to be activated. Awareness on the new site is low at the moment, but researchers believe that this will change shortly, since the previous site was attracting 30,000 users a month when it closed down. It appears that the new xDedic domain was shared only on said criminal forum and on a French language dark web criminal site, but “with the exception of Tor domain aggregation lists could not be located elsewhere.” Researchers couldn’t confirm how many users the new site has attracted for the time being, as the domain is hosted on the Tor network and they can’t assess the site's traffic volumes. However, the research into the new xDedic site is still undergoing, Digital Shadows told SecurityWeek. “The nature of the dark web is naturally very volatile, so keeping a keen awareness of this naturally changing landscape is key for organizations,” said James Chappell, CTO and co-founder of Digital Shadows. Kaspersky Lab researchers also are monitoring the situation. “We are aware of reports of the return of xDedic and are monitoring the situation. We have a policy to share the findings of cybercriminal research with the relevant law enforcement agencies, and we have already done so in the case of xDedic,” Kaspersky Lab told SecurityWeek via email.

  23. And IoT isn’t just about consumer devices. Nor is it a completely new idea. Early in my career I worked with a full range of industrial sensors. And medical devices have been around for a long time. But they were not connected using standard protocols that allow for unified management, analytics and security as we are seeing today. It’s now starting to take hold in enterprises, smart cities, transportation, and others as well. As enterprises transform into digital businesses, the need to find ways to improve efficiencies, generate new forms of revenue and deliver new and exciting customer experiences will be the tipping point for enterprise IoT to really take off. It’s not going to be an easy journey, though – especially for developers. Not only do these new devices need to talk to each other, but in order to have a purpose, they need applications, and those applications take time to build and manage. In fact, manageability is a key issue and developers are faced with integration challenges on an hourly basis. Specifically, for organizations that want to deploy IoT apps across multiple gateway vendors and those that wish to buy solutions that are not locked into a single silo, IoT can be the bane of one’s existence. This pressure on IoT developers has made companies like VMware work hard to figure out just how to make their lives easier. Today, VMware took a first step in our IoT journey, furthering our commitment to developers as well as makers of devices (the “things” of IoT) and gateway providers. We are extremely excited to launch Liota (Little IoT Agent), a vendor-neutral Open Source software development kit (SDK) for building secure IoT gateway data and control orchestration applications: where, when, and how to gather data from attached devices and transfer data to data center components. Liota also supports an application in receiving control signals from the data center components. The Liota Open Source SDK provides the libraries to develop applications that connect and orchestrate data and control flows across things, gateways and the cloud. Gateways are an integral part of IoT infrastructure. They bridge, but also de-couple, the physical IoT devices from the analytics and management components in data centers. This bridge allows data and control to move freely, correctly and securely from the device to the cloud or data center. Liota provides that next step, while also offering the flexibility developers want and need. Liota is the industry’s first vendor-neutral, Open Source framework for IoT gateway orchestration application development. Thus, it provides a common way for enterprises to manage and leverage multiple gateway vendors within their IoT infrastructures. Liota is an Open Source offering for IoT solution developers and resides primarily on IoT gateways. Liota has been generalized to allow, via modules, interaction with any data-center component, over any transport, and for any IoT gateway. It is easy-to-use and provides enterprise-quality modules for interacting with IoT Solutions. We’ve already tested Liota with many solutions from both VMware and the community, such as VMware AirWatch®, VMware vRealize® Operations Manager™ and the open-source tool Graphite. Liota solves an industry problem that’s very real and has been validated in many recent discussions I’ve had, including with some VMware customers who have had early access to the framework. For example, Francis Cianfrocca, founder & chief scientist at Bayshore Networks said, “It’s critical to for us to work across multiple gateway platforms to deliver the scale required for industrial IoT. Liota allows us to focus on app innovation rather than creating multiple versions of our app.” Francis raises a very good point. Developers are often so bogged down in the day-to-day, backend development of apps that they rarely get time to focus on innovation. With how quick the market moves, however, innovation is what will set businesses apart, allowing them to keep or gain competitive advantage while continuing to drive the business forward. Jason Shepherd, director of IoT strategy and partnerships over at Dell said, “An open framework for gateway app development is a powerful tool for IoT innovation. Apps built according to the Liota framework and running on Dell Edge Gateways give developers an opportunity to build powerful, flexible IoT solutions.” Also, companies who make the “things” in IoT see the strength in Liota’s ability to connect data all the way from their devices to the Cloud. “We are excited to engage VMware and work towards Liota integration onto our product offering,” said Mazin Bedwan, V5 Systems, co-founder and president. “V5 Systems is on the forefront of Industrial IoT Edge Computing, and Liota is a valuable solution that helps connect V5 Systems nodes to one another as well as back to the cloud or data center for a seamless and enterprise quality flow of data and communication.” Liota is available to developers for free now at https://github.com/vmware/liota, and it works with any gateway or operating system that supports Python. IoT offers a new realm of challenges and opportunities, both for our customers and for us. Liota is just the first stop on our IoT journey… Article source
  24. Universal Media Server is a DLNA-compliant UPnP Media Server. UMS was started by SubJunk, an official developer of PMS, in order to ensure greater stability and file-compatibility. The program streams or transcodes many different media formats with little or no configuration. It is powered by MEncoder, FFmpeg, tsMuxeR, AviSynth, MediaInfo and more, which combine to offer support for a wide range of media formats. Because it is written in Java, Universal Media Server supports all major operating systems, with versions for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. Features: Works with PS3, Xbox, TVs, Smart phones and many other devices Written in Java for use on Windows, Linux or Mac OS X Changes since 6.2.2: General: Added renderer config setting VideoFormatsSupportingStreamedExternalSubtitles Added renderer config setting StreamSubsForTranscodedVideo Ignore the article "a" by default, along with "the" Improved support for 3D subtitles Improved support for streaming external subtitles Defer to FFmpeg for transcoding VobSub subtitles Fixed header animation delay on web interface Renderers: Added support for Yamaha RXV500D (thanks, newbietux!)

  25. The folks at Backblaze have released a system they call Storage Pod 6.0, and they've open-sourced the whole works. Their aim is to drive down the cost of creating a data storage server (your own personal cloud) while they improve the reliability and durability of said servers each time they release a new version. Their first model was Storage Pod 1.0, which was launched all the way back in 2009. Back then their costs were $0.11/GB for 67.5TB of storage in a 4U box. Fast forward to 2016 and they've reduced that cost again, significantly. Launching this morning is Storage Pod 6.0, a solution that's come a LONG way since these folks started rolling back in 2007 (in their garage, of course). This pod employs 60 off-the-shelf hard drives in a 4U chassis, making costs 22-percent lower than their otherwise most-recent iteration. This Storage Pod 6.0 works with costs of $0.036/GB. Look at that drawer full of drives. Just look at it. Below you'll find a chart - made by Backblaze - that shows how much one of these racks cost them to make, what size the drives were - or are - total storage, and cost per GB. Next you'll see a rough 3D video of what the pod will look like - not that that'll matter to you too much, as you'll likely never have to see it up close and personal. The video you see next makes the methodology of the company - and what your role will be in all of this - very easy to understand. For those of you that want to create your own Storage Pod 6.0 - lucky you, the crew at Backblaze have made all plans and specs completely open sourced. You can download the lot of them with great ease. Head over to Backblaze and hit the downloads around halfway down the entry. For those of you wishing to check out what Backblaze can do for your data without you having to create this pod yourself - they've got Unlimited data plans starting at $5 a month. You can also pay $50 a year or $95 USD for 2-years at once. Sound like the sort of cloud storage you've been searching for? source
