Disable USB autorun
Lokacija: Zanimljivi linkovi :: Software   |   Autor: cacan @ 21:13   |  

USB autorun je ovih dana glavni vektor za spol… ovaj, racunalno prenosive bolesti ;-) Najrizicnija skupina - naravno - studentice i studenti! Il’ si medjusobno kopiraju, il’ nose svoje stickove po kojekakvim kopi-prcvarnicama s najpromiskuitetnijim racunalima u ovoj dimenziji. Vecina tih racunala nema ni osnovnu zastitu zvanu - iskljucen USB autorun. To onda znaci samo jedno, a to su dvije stvari - USB stickovi, virusi, epidemija!

Evo par savjeta kako iskljuciti jedan od najbeskorisnijih i najdebilnijih Win featurea - autoplay/autorun, vjerojatno izvorno skovan na Macu [samo na tom racunalu se takve pizdarije mogu nazvati i hvaliti kao feature].

Difficulty: Easy

Time Required: 2 minutes

Here’s How:

  1. The easiest and most effective means to truly disable autorun can be done via this simple autorun registry hack:

    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\IniFileMapping\Autorun.inf]

    @="@SYS:DoesNotExist”

  2. To use this method, Open Notepad and copy/paste the following into a text file:

    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\IniFileMapping\Autorun.inf]

    @="@SYS:DoesNotExist”

    Save the file as something.reg. (You have to be sure to change the “Save File as Type” to “All Files” before saving, or Windows will try to save it as a .txt even if you typed in .reg.

  3. Locate the file you just saved and double-click the file to run it. You will receive a prompt asking if you want to add the data to the registry. Click yes to allow the modification.

  4. The above method nulls any request for autorun.inf and works on XP Home or Pro, as well as Windows Vista. Credit for this tip goes to Nick Brown.

    If you opt to disable autorun using any other method, you will first need to install an autorun patch from Microsoft that allegedly resolves issues that cause autorun to run even after it’s been disabled (using methods other than the above recommended method).

  5. XP Pro users who have installed the appropriate Microsoft patch for your system and wish to disable autorun using a method other than described above, follow steps 3 through 8 only. XP Home users begin at step 9.
  6. Windows XP Pro users: Click Start and then click Run. Type gpedit.msc and click OK. The Group Policy window will open. In the left pane, double-click Administrative Templates
  7. In the right pane, double-click System, scroll down the list and double-click Turn Off Autoplay
  8. In the Turn Off Autoplay Properties window, select Enabled. From the dropdown next to Turn Off Autoplay on, select All drives and then click OK. Exit Group Policy by selecting File, then choosing Exit from the menu.

  9. Disable USB autorun

  10. XP Home users will need to make the changes by editing the registry directly. To begin, click Start and then click Run
  11. Type regedit and click OK. The Registry Editor window will open.
  12. In the left pane, navigate to:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER

    Software

    Microsoft

    Windows

    CurrentVersion

    Policies

    Explorer
    .

  13. With Explorer highlighted, in the right-pane right click the value NoDriveTypeAutoRun and select Modify from the drop down menu. The base value will be set to Hexadecimal. If not, select Hexadecimal.
  14. Type 95 and click OK.

    Note that this will stop Autorun on removable/USB drives, but still allow it on CD ROM drives. If you want to disable autorun on both, substitute b5 for the 95. (Thanks to Ian L. of Manitoba for the tip).

  15. Exit Registry Editor by selecting File, then choosing Exit from the menu.
  16. You will now need to reboot your computer for the changes to take effect.

    This site may harm your computer - malware warning
    Lokacija: Zanimljivi linkovi   |   Autor: cacan @ 19:05   |  

    Jasno, ovaj site na kojem ste sada “can’t do any harm” [osim mozda izazvati epilepticki napad ili zelju za gledanjem u bolje dizajnirani blog (koji to ni nije, ali to je jedna druga prica…;-))], ali upravo poruka iz naslova je bila prikeljena za ovaj, ali i sve ostale Google search rezultate danas, od 16:10 do 16:30 31.01.2009. - u cijelom svijetu! Yep… Zbog pada Stopbadware.org - sustava koji Googleu providea relevantne informacije o “badware” (zlocudnim) siteovima - svi Google rezultati su oznaceni kao “badware".

    Ovom greskom su bili pogodjeni SVI Google rezultati pretrazivanja, neovisno o tome je li se radilo o Google.com ili lokaliziranoj verziji trazilice.

    Bas me zanima kada ce Google napisati sluzbeno objasnjenje i kako ce ono zvucati… ;-)

    Prvo Google ubije Google Notebook (i neke druge, ne toliko bitne/popularne servise) i zestoko uzdrama povjerenje mnogih u cloud computing, a sada se pojavi ovakva trivijalna (po nastanku) greska koja se vjerojatno mogla zaobici s nekoliko linija koda.

    Sam Google je ovaj ispad fantasticno dokumentirao ;-) [zivjeti Google alati!] ovaj dogadjaj [ovo je Google Trends za 2009 01 31]:

    Google Trend - pad Googlea

    Update!
    Stiglo objasnjenje iz Google-a… hehe, kao sto rekoh - par linija koda! ;-)
    Cim o tome pise najsocnija (al’ ‘ladna) geek-riba Marissa - znaci da je jebeno vruce u Mountain Viewu… ;-)

    What happened? Very simply, human error. Google flags search results with the message “This site may harm your computer” if the site is known to install malicious software in the background or otherwise surreptitiously. We do this to protect our users against visiting sites that could harm their computers. We work with a non-profit called StopBadware.org to get our list of URLs. StopBadware carefully researches each consumer complaint to decide fairly whether that URL belongs on the list. Since each case needs to be individually researched, this list is maintained by humans, not algorithms.

    We periodically receive updates to that list and received one such update to release on the site this morning. Unfortunately (and here’s the human error), the URL of ‘/’ was mistakenly checked in as a value to the file and ‘/’ expands to all URLs. Fortunately, our on-call site reliability team found the problem quickly and reverted the file. Since we push these updates in a staggered and rolling fashion, the errors began appearing between 6:27 a.m. and 6:40 a.m. and began disappearing between 7:10 and 7:25 a.m., so the duration of the problem for any particular user was approximately 40 minutes.
