Feel free to take over Rossi  :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I dont mind doing what you do, take cheap shots, let others do everything & whine about anything in general, sounds like a real easy life.

Just in case anyones forgotten to let you know this on facebook etc , you dont have to come here if you dont want to , enjoying the winmx network is what you should be focusing on, and dont you feel ashamed that its an older generation whom have provided all the contant on this site for the last 12 1/2 years for free with no ads ?

When you deliver something of worth to the community I may be more inclined to listen to your "noise" but until then I have provisionally pencilled you into my "wannabe important person" list, but dont rest up just yet as your not actually at the top of that list and extra work is definitely required..

Have a great day  :D :D :D

arris modem
works as secondary user
winmx cannot make tcp connection on 6699
reset tcp to 6599, didn't work
confirmed tcp settings on winmx, mcafee and modem
restatrted, didn't help
tried winmx.com_help BABA1354BABE, came back to winmx
nothing show up on chat room

Impossible to log on and impossible to get any truth out of the mafia here.

This is without doubt the most useless forum in the history of the internet.

Full of utterly incompetent old codgers, sycophants and liars.
I think their fear here is that servers using AMD's EPYC could be intercepted on route to customers (which the NSA / CIA are known to do as per the Snowden leaks) and then implant their own firmware. Once that's done they could then remote the servers.

The risk to us as consumers is low, unless you use the services of a company that had their servers tampered with on route to delivery. I also believe the PSP in AMD's systems can be deactivated on some consumer boards since a recent BIOS update.
This story is really a bit of an anti climax of hype compared to the real Intel disaster.
Cfir Cohen, a security researcher from Google's cloud security team, on Wednesday disclosed a vulnerability in the fTMP of AMD's Platform Security Processor (PSP), which resides on its 64-bit x86 processors and provides administrative functions similar to the Management Engine in Intel chipsets.

Cohen's post described the vulnerability as remote code execution flaw. However, physical access is a prerequisite.

In an email to The Register, Dino Dai Zovi, cofounder and CTO of security biz Capsule8, said the vulnerability isn't quite subject to remote execution "since the crafted certificate that exploits the vulnerability needs to be written to NVRAM, the attacker must already have privileged access to the host or physical access. It would let an attacker bypass secure/trusted boot, which is performed by the TPM."

An AMD spokesperson told The Register that an attacker would first have to gain access to the motherboard and then modify SPI-Flash before the issue could be exploited..

I am wondering why the Google researcher is making the false claim of remote acess given there no such access by default on anyones AMD machine, perhaps he has Intel shares.
WinMx World News / Apple Suffers Alongside Intel In Processor Exploit Debacle
« Last post by GhostShip on January 05, 2018, 07:08:32 am »
The initial news stories on this bug seem to be snowballing as further processor chips are found that contain the problem.

Apple has said that all iPhones, iPads and Mac computers are affected by two major flaws in computer chips.

It emerged this week that tech companies have been racing to fix the Meltdown and Spectre bugs, that could allow hackers to steal data.
Apple said it had already released some patches but there was no evidence that the vulnerability had been exploited.

The Meltdown and Spectre flaws are found in all modern computer processing units - or microchips - made by Intel and ARM, and together the firms supply almost the entire global computer market.

It seems Athlon chips are safe but you wouldnt know that by reading this above article  :nerd:

Theres some further info here regarding the scope of  this problem
WinMx World News / Cutting The Undersea Internet Cables - The Story Behind The Story
« Last post by GhostShip on January 03, 2018, 09:06:55 pm »
Remember that story recently that said that the Russians might cut the undersea internet cables ?

It seems the story/scenario was concocted because someone had noticed a Russian spy ship that has known cable tampering technology and a mini sub on board was on the move from its normal location, the story sounded a bit over the top at the time and now it seems was simply 99% hyperbole or horse manure in simpler language.

Theres some data here regarding the ship and where it is atm,  I think we can all agree that whilst a lot of things "may" happen in this world, some events  are too inane for the real world. I wish the mini submariners good luck in their current hunt.

The normal method of intercepting undersea cable traffic is to actually cut into the cable and  run a tap from it and disguise the few days outage by talking about a ship dragging its anchor etc, a simple cover stoy and one that allows for the time to do the splicing.
WinMx World News / Re: EFF Urges HTTPS As Standard
« Last post by Pri on January 03, 2018, 04:43:53 am »
My own sites made the move in 2016 to HTTPS everywhere. You guys should consider adding it to winmxworld, it gives your search ranking a slight boost over non-HTTPS sites in search engines. You can get free certs from letsencrypt (which is what I use) they'll be introducing free wildcard certs in February :)

Very easy to setup with Apache, IIS, NGINX. Whatever webserver you're using.
WinMx World News / Spotify Being Sued - Possible Danger To intended Share Offering
« Last post by GhostShip on January 03, 2018, 01:59:18 am »
What funny news... :gum:

Spotify has been hit with a lawsuit that accuses the streaming service of infringing the rights of songwriters and publishers.

Wixen Music Publishing is seeking damages of at least $1.6bn (£1.18bn) - $150,000 for more than 10,000 songs.
The California company represents artists that include Janis Joplin, The Black Keys and Tom Petty.

Spotify declined to comment. The firm has been trying to settle a class action lawsuit brought by songwriters.
That lawsuit, which deals with similar copyright issues, was on course to being resolved in December.
But a group that included Wixen objected to the terms of the roughly $43m settlement, which they argued could yield less than $4 per song.

In its new lawsuit, filed at the end of December in a federal court in California, Wixen said Spotify failed to also address the claims of songwriters and publishers, which have separate rights to the compositions.

Wixen said: "As a result Spotify has built a billion dollar business on the backs of songwriters and publishers whose music Spotify is using, in many cases without obtaining and paying for the necessary licenses."

As the recording industry actually own a massive stake in Spotify  you'll all notice that that its mainly composers and songwriters whom are at war with Spotify in this action, in the normal chain of events those folks get royalties from radio plays etc but in the case of spotify it might be that they believe they are entitled to use the tracks royalty free due to the deals struck by the labels with them ( should that be themselves folks  :D), this might however be wixen making usage of the old "last minute hiccup" negotation strategy to grab a better deal so watch this space  :nerd:

Old link to shareholders list from 2009.

And for the bored amongst you see the near "whitewashed" offering here of a more recent vinatge that tells you less than little.

WinMx World News / EFF Urges HTTPS As Standard
« Last post by GhostShip on January 02, 2018, 10:56:54 pm »
An interesting article that notes the global increase in HTTPs usage across the web.

The movement to encrypt the web reached milestone after milestone in 2017. The web is in the middle of a massive change from non-secure HTTP to the more secure, encrypted HTTPS protocol. All web servers use one of these two protocols to get web pages from the server to your browser. HTTP has serious problems that make it vulnerable to eavesdropping and content hijacking. By adding Transport Layer Security (or TLS, a prior version of which was known as Secure Sockets Layer or SSL) HTTPS fixes most of these problems. That’s why EFF, and many like-minded supporters, have been pushing for web sites to adopt HTTPS by default.

In February, the scales tipped. For the first time, approximately half of Internet traffic was protected by HTTPS. Now, as 2017 comes to a close, an average of 66% of page loads on Firefox are encrypted, and Chrome shows even higher numbers.

The slow clawback of privacy online is picking up speed it seems but lets be clear here, those whom often set up security systems have ways of gaming it when necessary and for their own national interests, there is no single certificate issuer and this means theres still scope for site-jacking and other tricks albeit with the cost of later discovery. 
Overall this is a good move ahead but its not a perfect world and you should always assume that your activities are being spied upon as certainly in the superpower nations and their coattail followers, they are.  :evil:
