On a post labelled "Mass-Analyzing a chunk of the internet", a user has collected the IP addresses of all FTP File Servers on the IPv4 range with Open Access. This means the server accepts anonymous logins, and therefore if the server has files, can be accessible by anyone. Not only that, they've posted the results on GitHub This might be a good time to encourage people who do have...
I was tasked with the job of recovering some files from a Corporate File Server that had been deleted, I was given the file paths and the file names. "Easy", I thought... until I found out that the server was used for replication (syncing with another file server, lots of deleting and copying), and therefore had lots (and I mean LOTS) of deleted files.

So last week the unnamed company I work for was hit with Ransomware called Zepto, from an employee opening an attachment from an email.

This video is for those looking for a free way to create HD "lets play" videos, gaming videos, tutorials, recorded live streams, or all 4 in one video. We used to make videos to stuff into 320x240 resolution for YouTube, but times have changed so we have a lot more pixels to play with. Lets make some high quality videos with Intros, Outros, Images, Text, SplitScreen and MultiWindow goodness. Links:...
nLite has always served as an excellent tool for slip-streaming files into a Windows Installation, and making it unattended. After Windows Vista was released, vLite was released for Windows Vista, and then development stopped on the program in September 2008.
