How does the Windows Server 2008/2012 disable the SMBv1 protocol?

Filed under: computer knowledge — admin @ 5:40 pm

How does Windows Server 2008/2012 disable SMBv1 services because someone recently broke the 0 Day vulnerability associated with the Windows SMB protocol?. The vulnerability can be exploited for remote DOS attacks, causing memory exhaustion in the Windows system. According to the researchers, the vulnerability analysis is the “eternal blue” vulnerability derived from the new vulnerabilities, the official Microsoft believes that the flaw belongs to the medium, not to fix this vulnerability, and recommend users to avoid by disabling the SMBv1 protocol.
Vulnerability information
[CVE-ID]: None
[vulnerability type]: Remote Denial of Service Vulnerability
[hazard rank]: high risk
[system that affects]:Windows version 2000 and above to run SMBv1 protocol
Two, vulnerability analysis
Unlike a DDoS attack initiated by a common botnet approach, an attacker can exploit the vulnerability with a single machine to cause the target Windows system to crash. According to the safety of dogs preliminary analysis of nonpaged pool Windows kernel (non-paged pool) on the treatment of memory allocation problems, may lead to memory pool depletion. A remote attacker can cause all available memory allocation by sending Windows SMB message system specially opened 139 or 445 ports, the operating system will be dead in all memory, but will not record the log or the system blue screen, so the remote attacker can use loopholes in the implementation of DoS attack.
Three, investigation methods
1, Windows Server 2012 check SMBv1 status method:
Open the “Windows PowerShell” program in the start menu, enter and execute the following instructions on the command line:
Get-SmbServerConfiguration Select EnableSMB1Protocol |
If Ture is printed, the SMBv1 is opened.
2, Windows Server 2008 check SMBv1 status method:
Open the run program in the start menu, execute the regedit command, open the registry, add SMB1 in the following registry subkey, type REG_DWORD, and set the value to 0:
When the SMB1 value is 0, the SMBv1 state is disabled
When the SMB1 value is 1, the SMBv1 status is enabled
Four, emergency handling methods
Note: please backup the data before you repair it and test it fully.
1. close SMBv1
A) Windows Server 2012 method of closing SMBv1
Run commands in power shell:
Set-SmbServerConfiguration -EnableSMB1Protocol $false
B) Windows Server 2008 disables SMBv1
Use the Windows PowerShell or registry editor

How does socket 939 CPU choose?

Filed under: computer knowledge — admin @ 5:43 pm

Q: I am a rookie, just started to learn the computer soon heard that AMD CPU is very good, with superiors said to buy buy Socket939 platform, so be yearning, I do not know “old” how do you think? Could you tell me how to choose socket 939 CPU?
Answer: Recently, 939 platform motherboard “down” a sound. I believe so, 939 days will replace the 754 platform platform The day is not too distant when. As the 939 platform product line is more confusing, we need to pay more attention when shopping. The most popular Socket 939 Athlon64 processor core now includes Newcastle, Winchester, Venice, and the latest San Diego. The Winchester core is not much different from the previous Newcastle kernel, using the 90nm process, the CPU number, and the last two is BI.
Venice is the successor of Winchester, introduced the SSE3 instruction set, improved memory controller and Winchester core CPU looks very similar, but the number two is BP, in fact, this is we often say that the E3 version, in addition there is a market it improved E6 version, fixes a lot of BUG, so if choose between E3 and E6, the best choice of the latter, please remember it the number of the last two BW. The latest SanDiego core L2 cache capacity doubled, the step code is E4, and the last two letters of the number is “BN””. When buying CPU, we can pay attention to whether authentic, and pay attention to CPU number code, do not be fooled by JS.

How do I encrypt folders?

Filed under: computer knowledge — admin @ 6:16 pm

I’m using the Vista home edition, and I want to encrypt some files and folders. I wonder if it can be implemented
Vista does provide this functionality, but only the Windows Vista Enterprise (commercial Advanced Edition) and Ultimate (Ultimate) provide system level security protection for BitLocker. In addition to BitLocker, we can also use EFS for more flexible data protection in Windows Vista. EFS can store files or folders in encrypted form on the hard disk, so that encrypted files or folders can only be opened by authenticated users with the correct certificate. It is necessary to point out that EFS can only be used in the NTFS file system on the hard disk, and the compression function with NTFS is not used at the same time, that is to say, for a specific file, if you use a file compression function, then will not be on the implementation of encryption. In addition, it must be clear that the Windows, Vista, Starter, Windows, Vista, Home, Basic, and Windows Vista, Home, and Premium versions of EFS support are not complete, only partial functions can be implemented.

AUX and MIC interfaces

Filed under: computer knowledge — admin @ 6:08 pm

Q: I have an audio interface on my case panel. How do I connect this front audio interface?

Answer: the front audio interface to connect the case, according to the manufacturer’s design and production of different following two methods: the first case panel not connected to the motherboard slot, only marked “AUX” and “MIC” with two terminal connection line. At this point, the correct way to connect is to mark the “AUX” terminal connection line and sound card Speak out interface to connect, will be marked with “MIC” word terminal connector and sound card MIC interface can connect. The second is: the chassis panel is equipped with audio cable, as long as the instructions in accordance with the main board instructions, the audio cable connected to the corresponding motherboard slot.

Process Tamer hyper threading software

Filed under: computer knowledge — admin @ 5:57 pm

Q: I saw a Process Tamer software on the forum that lets Celeron D also open hyper threading functionality. But after use, the feeling doesn’t work. Are these software useful?

Answer: many users see Process Tamer after they think they see the hope that this thread tuning priority software can even open the shielded HyperThreading hyper threading function. But in fact, the Process Tamer software from first to last no mention of HyperThreading, can not open the function. Process Tamer itself is very simple to use, after installation will be permanent system tray, real-time monitoring of the resource occupancy rate of each program, you can also customize the detection range. According to the work of Process Tamer, virtually any processor can be used, and there is no ground for the idea that the AMD processor is unsuitable for the internet. As for another version of the argument that Process Tamer can improve the efficiency of pipeline CPU pipeline, so long due to low efficiency of the Intel processor will directly benefit from this kind of irresponsible speculation is groundless statement. In fact, for any software optimization function even analog hardware function, we should calmly look at the analysis, but not to others like a swarm of bees. In those days, software such as 386to486 has a lot of self deceiving software, apparently not what our DIY enthusiasts need.

Microsoft details how to install Office with Intune

Filed under: office 2016 — admin @ 6:36 pm

IT professionals can now use Intune, Microsoft’s cloud-based enterprise mobility management service, to remotely install Office applications onto company devices running Windows 10 version 1703 or later.

The functionality was added to Intune in June, but on Thursday the Redmond, Wash. company implied it’s an important feature of Microsoft 365, the subscription announced last month that will go on sale by the end of this year. Microsoft 365, which comes in both Business and Enterprise SKUs (stock-keeping units), is an amalgamation of Windows 10, Office 365 and a slew of cloud services, including Intune and Azure Active Directory (AAD).

Caveats abound: For example, only applications from the Office 2016 suite — for Office 365 subscribers, the bundle is known as “ProPlus” — may be installed. And the destination systems must be running Windows 10 1703, the upgrade Microsoft released in April that was dubbed “Creators Update.” Also, an Intune-managed deployment cannot be conducted on PCs that already have a version of Office. (In other words, no upgrades.)

Microsoft recommended that IT uninstall Office from systems prior to Intune enrollment.

In an unsigned post to a company blog, the company used several screenshots to illustrate how IT administrators could configure Intune to deliver Office 365. (Three weeks ago, Microsoft MVP – “Most Valuable Professional” – Mark O’Shea blogged about Intune and installing ProPlus, and offered illustrated tips as well.)

Expect improvements and additions to the Office deployment process, Microsoft’s Intune team said in the blog post Thursday, promising “more enhancements to come in the near future.”

Documentation for the Intune capability can be found on Microsoft’s website.

New Windows 10 Pro edition reveals Microsoft’s inconsistency

Filed under: windows 10 — admin @ 12:07 pm

The latest version of Windows 10 is aimed at workstations and offers support for up to four processors, Resilient File System and NVDIMM-N memory. It is slated to arrive in September.

Microsoft last week added another edition to its Windows 10 portfolio, introducing a variant of Windows 10 Pro aimed at high-end desktops, often tagged as workstations.

“Windows 10 Pro [for Workstations is] designed to meet the needs of our advanced users deploying their workstation PCs in demanding and mission-critical scenarios,” Klaus Diaconu, a manager in Microsoft’s Windows and devices group, wrote in a post to a company blog.

One analyst said the new Windows 10 would attract some customers, but called it “a very niche product.” And he wondered why Microsoft is adding another SKU (stock-keeping unit) to the line when it’s harped on the need to drive customers off Windows 7, even Windows 8.1, so that everyone is on 10.

“They want to shrink the number of versions, and expand the number of editions. That’s a contradiction,” said Michael Cherry of Directions on Microsoft. And questions abound, Cherry added, ticking off a slew of omissions ranging from pricing and licensing details to upgrade paths and servicing channels.

Microsoft quietly introduced Windows 10 Pro for Workstations, limiting the rollout to Diaconu’s blog post. That was in contrast to the introduction of Windows 10 S in early May, which warranted a presentation by the company’s top Windows executive, Terry Myerson.

Although Microsoft labeled the new edition as “Pro” — a nod to the sole business-grade SKU sold at retail or preinstalled on new systems — the firm trumpeted the above-and-beyond-regular-Pro functionality and features as Windows Server-esque, saying it “comes with unique support for server grade PC hardware.”

Diaconu highlighted four areas that will distinguish the new edition from the standard Windows 10 Pro.

  • Support for up to four processors — Windows 10 Pro maxes out at two — and as much as 6TB of memory (maximum for Pro is a still-incredible 2TB), as well as support for server-grade silicon such as Intel’s Xeon and AMD’s Opteron.
  • Support for ReFS, or “Resilient File System,” whose most notable characteristic is its resiliency to data loss and corruption. ReFS, which debuted in Windows Server 2012, is currently suitable for data disks only; it cannot be used to store Windows’ system files.
  • Support for NVDIMM-N (Non-Volatile Dual In-line Memory Module), with the “N” indicating a hybrid of traditional DRAM and flash-based storage on the same physical module, typically a storage device. Because of the non-volatile component — meaning that the contents are maintained without electrical power — a storage device with NVDIMM-N can almost-instantly back up the contents of normal RAM when power is cut or interrupted.
  • Support for faster network adaptors via “SMB Direct,” another Windows Server 2012 feature. One application, according to Microsoft: “For workloads such as Hyper-V or Microsoft SQL Server, this enables a remote file server to resemble local storage.”

Windows 10 Pro for Workstations is set to launch alongside the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, aka 1709 in Microsoft’s yymm format. The update will probably begin reaching customers Sept. 9.

Windows 10 Pro inconsistencies

While Microsoft has presented Windows 10 Pro for Workstations, the edition is plagued with several inconsistencies, according to Directions’ Cherry.

“Microsoft says they want it to be highly reliable, but at the same time, they don’t tell us which support channel it will use,” said Cherry, referring to the release tracks the company offers customers for feature upgrades. “This will run on hardware with non-volatile RAM and a high-speed network interface card, but [will Microsoft say it must be] updated every six months with the latest release? If so, that’s a contradiction.”

Windows 10 is distributed in three such “channels,” including Insider, a frequently-updated development build; Semi-Annual Channel, an every-six-months-comes-an-upgrade track; and Long-term Servicing Channel, or LTSC, available only to customers running the Windows 10 Enterprise edition. A version of Windows 10 assigned to the LSTC may be left alone, serviced only by security updates, for as many as 10 years.

Cherry made multiple points on the subject. First, machines running Windows 10 Pro cannot be assigned to LTSC, but will be force fed upgrades every six months. Best case, companies will be able to skip just one of those upgrades annually. But Microsoft’s selling points for Windows 10 Pro for Workstations – reliability and stability – would seem to argue for the long-lived LTSC, not the constant churn of change required by the Semi-Annual Channel.

“I just don’t know how this will play out,” Cherry said.

He also wondered how systems running Windows 10 Pro for Workstations would mesh with Microsoft’s most advanced subscription services, including Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP). The service is restricted to E5-level subscription plans, and requires Windows 10 Enterprise. “Can you put an E5 subscription on this thing?” Cherry asked.

But what stood out is a more basic incongruity in Microsoft’s thinking. “We’ve been hearing from Microsoft that there are too many versions of Windows, that they’re too broad and too hard to service and support,” he said of the Redmond, Wash. company’s messaging.

Microsoft has been pushing customers, particularly commercial customers, toward Windows 10 and away from the stalwart Windows 7 (and to a lesser extent, Windows 8.1) more aggressively than in earlier cycles. Among the measures: unprecedented reductions of support for Windows 7 on new processors and the dispatch of decades-old patching practices.

“But then they’re expanding the number of editions,” Cherry said, giving a nod to Windows 10 S and the latest, Windows 10 Pro for Workstations. “They want to contract the number of versions but expand the number of editions.”

That made sense to Cherry on only one condition. “This [Windows 10 Pro for Workstations] is part of the continued monetization of Windows,” he said.

What are the differences between Office 2016 and Office 365?

Filed under: office 2016 — admin @ 12:04 pm

Microsoft Office may be the de facto productivity tool for millions of workers worldwide, but it’s no monolith. Rather than a single, towering smooth-black Office, there’s a whole Stonehenge of options: Office on the iPhone, on iPad, Office on Android smartphones, Office on personal computers, Windows and macOS, Office with a handful of applications, Office with fistfuls’.

But when you get down to it, there are really only two kinds of Office. One, which most label Office 2016, is the stand-alone suite that traces its roots back to the last century. The other, Office 365, is the subscription service that debuted in 2011.

How they differ can be confusing, especially since both include, more or less, the same applications. Here are three top ways to tell these tools apart.

How they’re paid for

Of the differences between Office 2016 and Office 365, purchase plans are among the most striking.

Office 2016, whether bought one copy at a time in retail or in lots of hundreds via volume licensing, has been dubbed a “one-time purchase” by Microsoft to spell out how it’s paid for. (Labels like “perpetual,” which has been widely used by Computerworld, technically note the type of license rather than payment methodology, but in Office’s case, the kind of license is tied to whether it was bought outright or simply “rented.”)

Microsoft defines the term as when “…you pay a single, up-front cost to get Office applications for one computer.” Up-front is the key adjective there; Office 2016’s entire purchase price must be laid out before receiving the software.

That purchase, actually of a license to legally run the software, gives the buyer the right to use Office 2016 in perpetuity. In other words, the license has no expiration date, and users may run the suite as long as they want. Pay for Office 2016 this year and use it for the next eight years? Fine. Run it until 2030? Nothing to stop you.

One-time purchases include Office Professional Plus 2016 (Windows) and Office Standard 2016 for Mac (macOS), the enterprise-grade SKUs available only via volume licensing; and retail packages such as Office Professional 2016 (Windows) and Office Home and Business 2016 for Mac (macOS).

Office 365, the purchase method Microsoft’s now pushing most aggressively, is a subscription service, so payments are made monthly or annually. The latter may produce savings in exchange for the commitment: Office 365 Business Premium, for instance, costs $12.50 per month per user when paid in an annual lump sum ($150 per user), but $15 per month per user on a month-to-month plan ($180).

All enterprise plans — from E1 to E5, as well as ProPlus — do not offer a monthly option, but require an annual commitment.

Like any subscription, Office 365 provides a service — in the case of Office, it’s the right to run the suite’s applications — only as long as payments continue. Stop paying, and rights to run the apps expire. (Actually, they don’t immediately stop working; the applications will continue to operate normally for 30 days past the previous payment’s due date.)

A license for Office, then, is contingent on sustained payments. Halt the latter and the license is revoked. Restarting the payments restores the license.

Office 365 plans range from one for individual consumers (Office 365 Personal) and small businesses (Office 365 Business) to educational institutions (Office 365 Education E5) and corporations (Office 365 Enterprise E3).

How they’re serviced

Although payments define one difference between Office 2016 and Office 365, Microsoft’s turn to a faster development and release pace is ultimately more important to users — and the IT professionals who support them.

Think of Office 2016 as traditional software made and sold in traditional ways. That holds for servicing, too. Microsoft provides monthly security updates for Office applications, usually on the second Tuesday of each month, and also fixes non-security bugs for the first five years of the SKU’s lifecycle.

But Office 2016 does not receive upgrades with new features and functionality. What you get when you buy the suite, feature-wise, is it. When Microsoft produces a new edition, which it will eventually do (and call it Office 2019 or Office 2020, for example), you will need to pay another up-front fee to run that.

Office 365, on the other hand, has a completely different servicing model. While the Office applications licensed to users through Office 365 receive the same security patches (and non-security fixes) distributed to Office 2016, they also acquire new features and functionality on a twice-a-year schedule. Three months ago, Microsoft revamped the update calendar, saying it would issue upgrades in September and March of each year. The first is to start rolling out Sept. 12. This support document lists the upgrade release dates through September 2018.

As new features and functionality accrete, the applications evolve until, at some point, Microsoft says they are sufficiently different to warrant a new numerical moniker, such as Office 2019 or Office 2020. It will then package those versions into an upgraded suite for customers who continue to make one-time, up-front purchases. (Microsoft has pledged to offer a successor to Office 2016, but has not committed to non-subscription forms beyond that.)

How they hook up with cloud services

Neither Office 2016 or Office 365 is truly cloud-based, but both are able to connect with Microsoft’s cloud services (and to a very limited extent, some third-party services). Currently, both the applications awarded in a one-time purchase of Office 2016 and those installed as part of an Office 365 subscription can connect with services such as Microsoft-hosted Exchange, OneDrive storage and Skype for Business.

However, in April Microsoft announced a major change in the rights of Office 2016‘s successors to do just. After Oct. 13, 2020, Office applications acquired through an up-front purchase of the suite must be in their “Mainstream” support period, which is the first five years of the traditional guaranteed 10, to connect with Microsoft’s cloud services.

The change takes aim at customers who mixed cloud services with traditional one-time payment software as it effectively halves the length of time the latter can be used in those organizations. At the same time, the post-2020 rule advances Microsoft’s efforts to push, aggressively so, business customers toward Office 365. And the company hasn’t been shy about saying so.

“Office 365 ProPlus is our recommended Office client for Office 365 users,” said Alistair Speirs, a senior operations program manager, in an April post to a blog. “This is the Office client that stays up to date with frequent feature releases and ensures the best service experience.”

Applications obtained from an Office 365 subscription will never have a connect cutoff date.
