  3. As we all know, some people connected with 'Nigerian Prince' scam are likely going to jail: http://wgno.com/2017/12/29/nigerian-prince-email-scammer-arrested-in-slidell/ But it seems like it was profitable enough to make some people keep on going with different Nigerian scams. Recently, on my old email address, that was previously my main one and now mainly gathers dust and SPAM, i got an interesting email: > From: Major General Mohammed Babagana Monguno <ffadel@grupokeops.com> Reply to: ngenmohamm@gmail.com ATTN: Sir/Madam I am Major General Mohammed Babagana Monguno, National Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari.

  4. No New Threads Can Be Created. Help!!!

    I cannot post topic, site returns error code: EX1364 When I try to create a new one, site throws me an error. Posting here because, it seems, I can't start a new one, but I can reply. Topic that fails to get posted does not contain any fancy code or attachments, no reserved characters in title etc. Just long wall of plain text (3222 signs) with single [ code ] marker. I disabled all browser addons and still no clue what's wrong. I use Current Stable Firefox on Windows 7 x64. I also tried IE 11 for troubleshooting, plain, not modified version that is usually not used, and the same code is being returned. Attachment below:
  5. Well, businesswiseit's not that dumb, as Facebook and Google (Alphabet group) are already ahead of them.

  8. Late to the party

    As xper announced in the original topic, the possible takedown was postponed into far and undefined future :>
  9. Windows XP License

    Well, we have three cases over here to discuss: 1) If resold Windows XP OEM licence key will work. And for that we have many confirmed examples from this topic's commenters. XP licence keys is officialy gone form M$ shopping catalog, so they have no reason to cause problems for users. Most will get what they have bundled with new Laptop anyway. 2) If resold Windows XP OEM licence key is legal - and by the way, that was the original topic's question. For what I know reselling retail, boxed Windows is legal, as long as you previously uninstalled it from the machine it was installed on, or the original machine is broken. And, as far as I know, this does not apply to OEM keys. The problem goes further, as my knowledge is most likely compliant with European Union legislation. Licence terms are not applicable, when they are not permitted by national/state/local laws. and if you are not copyright lawyer, good luck finding that out. As far as I'm concerned, Microsoft does care about being in terms with law, and I suspect their licence terms are applicable to US law. You know, it is US company, and US is the biggest market worldwide, so I'd say, that most likely in @Glenn9999 case buying used OEM licence is not legal. Whether you wanna get on well with licence terms, is a case of your ethics. 3) If copyright/licencing laws that forbid reselling no-longer-used OEM licences are sane and ethical - Well, M$ put a lot of effort and money for lobbying certain laws, but trying to discuss that out if it is right or not is an entry to an endless debate, which is danger close from a political debate on MSFN. As far as I know, previously it was tied to processor, but after M$ lost some anti-trust cases, it was forbidden for them to do it any more, so, well, Mobo was good enough replacement ^^ I'm nearly sure I found this piece of trivia somewhere over here, but I cannot find the particular article.
  10. Meanwhile in the gaming world...

    But only for the ones with older firmware -> not connected to the internet for months.
  11. Yep, another program that helps to prevent Windows 10 from automatically update. this one comes from NoVirusThanks, a software developer that gave the world a few programs like Exe Radar Pro. that I've read a lot good about on security-related sites. Some might find it handy. http://www.novirusthanks.org/products/win-update-stop/ Personally I didn't test. It says it supports all 32/64 bit Windows from XP to 10, but I find Win7 built-in tools for that purpose quite better than the one in Win 10 Wilders Security thread (quite brief at the moment of posting).
  12. presentation

    Oh, hey. Hello. Have a good time here :>
  13. Well, sorry to interrupt your grumpiness, but as someone mentioned in another topic: So, for this case we should start with 1)Is the software you are trying to update installed on your machine? So yes, patches listed were noticed by users to slow down MU/WU if the software they are for is present, and installing them helps to solve the issue. If this what you needed, case solved. Actually you could have solved the mystery yourself by running MU and checking out if it runs for minutes or for hours. In any other case when your MU is a slow hog and none of these patches apply to your system configuration, we can start investigating the issue and probably expanding the list.
  14. This topic should be listed in harkaz's post list https://www.msfn.org/board/topic/171814-posready-2009-updates-ported-to-windows-xp-sp3-enu/?tab=comments#comment-1077785 That's my 2c.
  15. Well said! As this might be very bad for cloud services providers and critical infrastructure, targeted by APT attacks, normal user won't likely see this used against him. Vulnerability is too sophisticated, and too many hardware/system combinations to care about, especially when it's enough to make fake Facebook lookalike site to gain what's needed.. Spam campaign, ransomware - this are easier are far more profitable. So if anyone has a skill to exploit the flaw, I guess he'd rather be attacking big organizations to massively obtain credentials, rather than targeting Your Mom. Personally, my old machine has AMD processor, so meltdown is off and spectre is far less dangerous and is said to be affecting AMD under very specific circumstances. I don't even bother checking if my CPU is on any list. And hey! Spectre affects some ARM devices! So i hope y'all will get updates for your home routers, smart TV's and other IoT devices, yes? No. Probably not even your one-year old Android phone.
