Firefox sets kill-Flash schedule

Mozilla yesterday said it will follow other browser markers by curtailing use of Flash in Firefox next month.

The open-source developer added that in 2017 it will dramatically expand the anti-Flash restrictions: Firefox will require users to explicitly approve the use of Flash for any reason by any website.

As have its rivals, Mozilla cast the limitations (this year) and elimination (next year) as victories for Firefox users, citing improved security, longer battery life on laptops and faster web page rendering.

"Starting in August, Firefox will block certain Flash content that is not essential to the user experience, while continuing to support legacy Flash content," wrote Benjamin Smedberg, the manager of Firefox quality engineering, in a post to a company blog.

bluff called, thoughts on working for Amazon?

Booting up in safe mode for this one. Contacted by an Amazon manager based on my LinkedIn profile. Interested in discussing a job as a Technical Account Manager. I threw out a salary that has previously shut people up, now he wants my resume.

This is a technical, but customer facing role that is actually a good fit for my skillset.

Anybody here make the transition from big fish in a small pond to anchovy in the ocean? I am not concerned about my current job stability but I am about out of growth potential here and rapidly reaching my sell-by date for tech jobs.

Also, it's Amazon. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/16/technology/inside-amazon-wrestling-big-ideas-in-a-bruising-workplace.html?_r=0

I figure there is no harm in dusting off the resume, it desperately needs updating anyway. But at some point I may actually be faced with a life-altering decision.

Thoughts?

Help configuring RemoteApp (RDS)

Alright, so I am in the midst of a RemoteApp deployment, and here is the current setup:

Server1 - Domain Controller, DNS

Server2 - File Server

Server3 - Remote Desktop Web Access, RD Licensing, RD Gateway, and RD Broker

Server4 - RD session host

Server5 - RD session host (not yet online)

Server6 - RD session host (not yet online)

_

I currently have two issues:

1) When I launch the RDP files, the RDP session attempts to connect the Server3 via it's internal name. For the "Remote Computer" field, it has the local name, but the "Gateway Server" shows up as the external address that is setup through DynDNS to point to the IP address of this site. How can I set both fields to look at the external address?

2) What ports do I need to forward on the router to allow traffic being pointed from the DynDNS service to go to the various remote desktop services? I do not have any of the servers in a DMZ - I know it is typical to place the RD gateway in a DMZ, but do I have to? Can I just forward ports 443, 3389, and 3391 to Server3?

Flaws in Oracle file processing SDKs affect major third-party products

Seventeen high-risk vulnerabilities out of the 276 flaws fixed by Oracle Tuesday affect products from third-party software vendors, including Microsoft.

The vulnerabilities were found by researchers from Cisco's Talos team and are located in the Oracle Outside In Technology (OIT), a collection of software development kits (SDKs) that can be used to extract, normalize, scrub, convert and view some 600 unstructured file formats.

These SDKs, which are part of the Oracle Fusion Middleware, are licensed to other software developers who then use them in their own products. Such products include Microsoft Exchange, Novell Groupwise, IBM WebSphere Portal, Google Search Appliance, Avira AntiVir for Exchange, Raytheon SureView, Guidance Encase and Veritas Enterprise Vault.

"Unable to check revocation because the revocation server was offline" when trying to connect to RRAS VPN with SSTP

The odd thing is, I can access the crl file directly by copy and pasting the URL from within the certificate into a browser, but when I try to connect to VPN, I immediately get the revocation server offline error message.

I am using self signed certs, and my root CA cert is stored in the trusted root certification authorities store on the client computer.

So the CA generated its own cert on creation of the server, then issued the SSTP certificate to the RRAS server. All references to file:// and ldap:// links for crl access were removed only the http:// link exists, and allow double escaped characters is enabled on IIS.

These were all the solutions I came across while googling, does anyone else have any other ideas?

48-port(or more) 10/100/1000 switch suggestions?

Helping someone replace their small business rat's nest network. While I'm more adept at cisco equipment, I think they would be overkill & costly for them.

Nice to have: * POE add-on for the future, but not necessary. * good web management (so I don't need to learn new CLI) * uplink of some sort, so they can add more switches in future. * Layer 3 * integrated Wi-Fi, but can also keep separate unit too

I've been looking at Dell, TP-Link, Cisco, Netgear so far.

I don't want to leave them with a consumer level rebranded equipment. Looking for robust switch.

Publishing Visio with App V 5.1

We've been using App V 4.6 to deploy applications to our Citrix environment in cases where we have limited licences, such as Visio. Doing some research I found this guide from Microsoft that raises a few red flags for me:

  • All of the Office applications that you want to deploy to users must be in a single package.
  • If you are deploying Microsoft Visio 2013 and Microsoft Project 2013 along with Office, you must include them in the same package with Office.
  • You must publish the Office package globally. You cannot publish to the user.

So we can no longer publish Visio to only a select few users, it has to be published (and licensed!) to thousands of users and not just the 5 users who actually use it - which means the sole reason for using App V is gone.

WTF is going on with Lenovo quality and warranty???!!!

So, I've been a long time ThinkPad/IBM fan. However, what I noticed is that ever since IBM sold off PC business to Lenovo, the quality has fallen off the cliff (shady software practices aside).

We had bunch of laptops - actually 80% of them - have the infamous ribbon cable cracks, resulting in LCD having a giant black stripe across the screen. Laptop cases themselves are crumbling, hard drives are failing, and on top of it all - every time you call Lenovo for support, mysteriously you hear "the part is on back order"! Few times when we requested tech onsite dispatch (an extra premium warranty we bought), we simply got an email that part was on back order. After 3 weeks of not hearing anything we called and were told our case was closed when part wasn't available! No notification of that was ever sent out... because it went directly to tech, instead of us - the customer.

Now, I've been on the phone with Lenovo fighting for the past 45 minutes to get a replacement for failed 7200K RPM drive. I'm being given same bullshit "part on backorder" and offered 5400 RPM drive instead... Otherwise - wait a week (or longer) for the right part. Mind, this is for PREMIUM ONSITE WARRANTY that we paid about $250 for. An $80 broken part is being haggled over by multi-billion dollar PC MANUFACTURING CORPORATION... with no spare drives on hand. ARE YOU F*CKING KIDDING ME??????

Needless to say this is my absolute last dance with Lenovo, ever... but am I wrong for wanting to refer this matter to attorneys for "Breach of Warranty" lawsuit consideration?

How can I stay relevant in IT?

I was just watching this video from Eli about the death of the IT profession. It's a really long video and hard to really get to the gist of it.

I am still fairly new to system administration, but I'd like to make a career out of it. I'm not really sure where to go at this point so that I don't become out of work.

My general feeling is that in the near term, system administrators will become less common and more developers will be creating self healing systems that don't even need any kind of intervention once they are installed. Does this mean that I should refocus on becoming a software developer instead of SDN and using tools like PowerShell and config management like Chef or puppet to automate and standardize server builds? I'm really starting to dig into linux now so I can use FOSS to spin up useful servers in my environment like Nagios and Zoneminder for IP camera recording.

Any advice would be great.

This Tinder scam promises to verify your account, but actually sells porn

Tinder users beware. The popular dating app generally doesn’t verify most user accounts, but that hasn’t stopped spammers from pretending to offer the service.

In recent weeks, automated bots masquerading as Tinder profiles have been telling real users to get “verified,” as part of a clever scam to sell them porn, security firm Symantec said on Thursday.

The spam bots first send off flirty messages, like “Wanna eat cookie dough together some time?” only to then ask whether Tinder has verified the user.

It’s a free service, the spam bot will claim, and done “to verify the person you wanna meet isn’t a serial killer lol.”

anyone else have experience upgrading Wyse thin clients?

I'm a new sysadmin at my company and I was tasked with upgrading the thin clients. We have a mix of Wyse D90D7 and Z90S7's and we use them with 2008 R2 terminal servers. The thin clients haven't been updated/upgraded since 2014, if at all.

I've started pushing out upgrades with some USB sticks and things seem to work fine until I install the Wyse TCX Suite. After installing TCX Suite, the Z90S7's slow to a crawl and eventually blue screen. I have have much less problems with the other model, but the problem with them is that I get a lot of weird errors when remoting into our terminal server farm. Issues include 8-bit color and random errors about missing dll files that remote desktop depends on. However, the remote sessions still work. I have tried upgrading a handful of each model thin client and I get the same issues with all of them.

The problem seems to mainly be compatibility with the TCX suite (no matter what version I try installing), otherwise the newly upgraded thin clients work fine if I don't install it. The reason we need TCX is because a lot of our thin clients have document scanners connected directly to them and the scanners do not show up in the user's session if it's is not installed.

I have been trying to figure it out for a few weeks now and Wyse support hasn't been much help at all. All of our thin clients are out of warranty, so I guess I'm thankful that Wyse is helping me at all. That being said, they haven't been much help.

I was just wondering if anyone else has been down a similar path and maybe has some advice..

VMWare Automation Tool Written In PowerShell Crosspost (/r/powershell)

Hey everyone. Today i wanted to share something I've been working on and off on for the last couple of weeks.

It is a utility written completely in PowerShell that allows a technican to enter in some basic information about a VM he wants to create and the script pulls the other required values and settings and takes over the whole process from there.

Below is an In Depth outline of what this tool achieves and what you would need to edit to make this tool work for your team.

  1. The user selects a VCenter Server from the dropdown menu. We are a global organization and have 3 to choose from. You may only need one in your instance.

  2. The user gets prompted for the required credentials for that connection. We require specific admin accounts for this access.

  3. A connection is made to that server which persists for as long as the tool is open.

  4. The user is then presented with a list of all datacenters or local offices that exist on that vcenter server. They choose from the dropdown the datacenter they want the VM placed in.

  5. Some work is done in the background and the user is presented with the available ESX clusters and Hosts for that datacenter. Hosts are placed at the top of the list. They choose an ESX cluster or host from this dropdown.

  6. More filtering is done in the background and they are presented a list of datastore clusters and datastores to choose from that are available for that ESX host or cluster. Again clusters are presented at the top of the list. They choose and item from this dropdown.

  7. The user is then presented with a list of Templates to choose from.

  8. The user is next asked to choose the customization they want applied to the VM.

  9. Next the user needs to input the name of the VM they want to create.

  10. Next the user will choose the desired number of cores from the available dropdown menu.

  11. Then they must choose the amount of RAM to be assigned to the VM from the next combobox.

  12. The user is then allowed to choose to add extra disks to the VM and is also prompted for drive letters but im not doing anything with those yet (i'll get to it.)

  13. Next the technician will be asked to provide an IP address to assign to the server.

  14. Finally they will be asked to enter in values for some custom attributes we have in VSphere. These may or may not be applicable to your organization.

Once all that information has been entered they will hit the complete process button which starts the automation.

The complete process button kicks off the following chain of events:

  1. The tech is prompted for the local admin creds for that image as we will need them later.

  2. The VM is created using the Server, Resourcepool, Name, Datastore, Template, and OSCustomizationSpec parameters we have already gathered. They get a progress bar as this process does its thing.

  3. Once the machine is created we set the Num of VCPU's on the box.

  4. Next we set the amount of RAM chosen previously.

  5. We then add the extra disks if any were chosen by the user.

  6. Once complete we validate the IP address that was entered is an actual IP address.

  7. We then determine automatically the portgroup that this VM should be applied to. We do this heavily based off of naming convention so this portion will most likely not work for others and would need to be re-worked.

  8. If only one possible portgroup matched we call the function to set that portgroup on the VM. Otherwise we prompt the user to choose from a dropdown menu of the available portgroups which matched our filters and then set the proper group on the VM.

  9. Once the port group has been set we start the VM.

  10. The tool then waits till it gets a notification that the customization process has begun on the machine, and once begun it waits again until it gets a completion event.

  11. Once the customization is complete, we update VMware tools on the machine.

  12. Once VMware tools have been updated we make the notes and annotations on this machine in VSPhere.

  13. We then wait for the guest operating system to become available for remote use again.

  14. Once the OS is ready, we set the IP, Mask and default gateway in the guest OS using Invoke-VMScript.

  15. Once complete we set the DNS information on the VM. also using invoke-vmscript.

  16. We then enable ps-remoting on the machine also using Invoke-VMScript. We also verify it worked by testing with a simple invoke-command.

  17. Once PS remoting is enabled we join this machine to the domain which causes a reboot.

  18. We monitor and wait for the reboot to complete.

  19. Once completed we verify the Domain join worked as desired.

  20. Once the machine is joined to the domain we run a final function to apply some desired customizations. We then log out the results of those customizations to the Rich text box for the user to copy/paste out.

Now i know that not all of you would want all of this code but i hope that the tool serves as a useful example on some of the stuff you can do inside the VMWARE cli. I just started learning vmware a month ago and its been a lot of fun.

I would love suggestions, feedback, good natured criticism or candy :)

The files are available at the following GITHUB address. Please note that if you have PSStudio you will be able to downloaf the PS project file (Which i reccomend as it will make the code look cleaner.

If you aren't using PS Studio just grab "Server Build Tool.Export.ps1"

Question about Russian law and network traffic monitoring.

Okay this one of those questions I though I would never have to ask...

So basically situation is this. Our client has a server that handles dhcp and all that jazz in Russian side office.. They use vpn to get over to the main office. Recently we have been getting reports that the vpn connection goes down regularly. We did some network monitoring on the firewall and noticed huge spikes on network traffic which then result at the firewall closing down the port due to the huge overflow of traffic.

The question: I would like to install Wireshark on the Russian side server and monitor the traffic for a while to get more detailed data from the network to find out the source of these spikes.

Does anyone who is more familiar with Russian law concerning monitoring private company network traffic, know if there are some things I might have to take in consideration before using Wireshark?

I honestly have no idea. And yes I think Boris might be downloading lots of Hentai. :)
