some off_Topic security
Of Course we have a good FireWall installed!
a little more is
- also if You have only 1 computer.
Real world_class hackers
, (We talk about the Top_ten
now, more or less)
this easy. But they
interested in our computers
We want protection against access from Wild Whizzkids
Only "running around" to destroy as much as possible everywhere around
They "see" not a standard computer, but some extra obstacle, (or nothing at all).
- 90% of the kids (and their "hacking_programs" ) shall go
- The rest is a prey
for our Firewall
one more example
my own paranoia installation
For privacy only. Internet-cable connected only
during checking E-mail.
For use by a few (10 y.o.) little friends only. ( Games, Facebooks, etc.)
For internet only. no
privacy in this one. But it need the Search and Destroy
thing 3 times a week
My little server. Light
protection with a simple (only 7 digits
This one is checked by some top-grade Hackers - it have no access to the others
About some nonsense with the name protection
At Downloading a File
- Winshit explorer can
block the use of it.
Some programs shall refuse to play it, Windows MediaPlayer
Before trying to run a file
on the name. Then
- something like Properties
- Downstairs - Read some bullshit about an other computer If so -then
- Typ the o OR click something like UNblock
- click Right button ( "do it now
") then click OK
have a real virscanner
So = NO problem to stop
some more Nonsense about security
The employer of a friend of me, is very strict on "company_security",
SO- After buying new computer(s) for Administration, he give order to my friend to
=> Destroy the old HD's with a hammer
Testings from Data_security-company "Norman-Shark
" told us that:
Modern HD's can stand the dropping of a 3_Tons
Demolition-ball, without a scratch (inside).
What can a hammer
You destroy steering-wheel of a car? Thinking it shall never ride again?
SOME people still think that FORMAT
shall erase all data from a disk.
FORMAT shall only
check the disk, and clean
Every computer_geek can read the disk after Format
as if it is still filled with data !
( copy track after track, ignoring the index-register
If You want real cleaning
method A - the Hardware way. => An electro-magnetic burst.
But then You NEED
, its more expensive as a new car (middle class)
Or else Your own nerve-systems shall be erased faster
as the HD.
Method B - the software way => overwriting all bits&bytes
- Format, to clean the index_register
- Take a solid
file - like a TXT, or a BMP,
- Make 1 Directory ( a.k.a. MAP or Folder ) **
- Bring the file IN that Directory Untill the Disk is FULL.
(Every time an other name of course)
- Then DOUBLE the size of the file, and do it ALL OVER again.
- Do all this as MUCH times as Your own patience allows You.
In some publication for professionals, i did read Best
= 36 times
i Have a feeling - they use DOS or UNIX, with a Batch_file. Winshit Can't do this job!
say that Secure Eraser
Can do the job also.
i don't know who
" are! so => No guarantee from me
** Make Directory
is because DOS limit the amount of files in Root.
Thats about it. ( For now ). Good Luck.
