It’s definitely not going anywhere 🤖 Another long post coming so get that scroll wheel ready 🤠 Weather was typical Vegas HOT at the Mandalay Bay (102f), but not as hot as it had been the week before we all arrived - which was a scorching 113f🔥 Thankfully there was no flash flooding like last year. REGISTRATION I’m happy to report that Black Hat finally have registration down and can handle the massive amount of crowds.

From Thursday, December 15, 2016, Webroot will roll out a new WSA Web Threat Shield plugin, version 18.104.22.168. to address a known defect. This release addresses a sporadically occurring defect in which Webroot Enhanced Web Threat Shield binaries were repeatedly marked to be deleted with the next Operating System restart. In some cases, this caused installers/uninstallers to function incorrectly. [list] [*]The Installation will occur silently if automatic updates are enforced for your Webroot deployment. [*]A restart of the machine is required to complete deployment.[/list][b]Note[/b]: Webroot SecureAnywhere agents will receive the updated plugin on their defined poll interval. Agents can be forced to obtain the plugin immediately by: [list] [*]Right-clicking the agent in the system tray and selecting "Refresh Configuration" OR [*]Running the command line “<path to executable>wrsa.exe –poll”. For example: "c:program fileswebrootwrsa.exe" -poll[/list] Webroot ap

Microsoft's combination of application reputation technology and URL filtering gave Internet Explorer a malware block rate that blew pass Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Apple Safari. The latest tests from NSS Labs showed IE with a 99.9 percent block rate for what the security tester calls socially engineered malware (SEM). Chrome had a rate of 70.7 percent while Firefox and Safari hovered around 4 percent. In general, SEM includes all malware that a computer user is tricked into downloading on the Web through a malicious link in an email, instant message or other vehicle. Malware delivered as an email attachment is excluded. [url=http://www.networkworld.com/news/2014/040214-ie-easily-beats-chrome-firefox-280335.html]Full Article[/url]
