Hackers expose weakness in visiting trusted sites.

A powerful new type of Internet attack works like a telephone tap, except operates between computers and Web sites they trust.

Dear Tom,
Thank you! I always hover the cursor over a Web Address, for ex. > Before the http, there always will be some info' and in this case it was"This web site does not supply identity information".

That's the title of ars technica article, here.  No reply from MSFT yet on what to do about it, but the article describes the problem, and your exposure. Earlier thread (now locked) on related privacy problem, is here.  Since changing the HOSTS file really doesn't do anything (MSFT ignores it), I'm thinking the best thing to do is only surf with a guest account or.. well, I don't know how to defend against it, and still keep using Windows 10.  Do you know?Edit: Moved topic from Windows 10 Discussion to the more appropriate forum, since this is not specifically a Windows 10 issue. ~ Animal

I have the newest Internet Explorer and im using Vista. I play a game called Travian and I want to use a 'graffic pack' which loads from my PC.

I had to add the site to my 'trusted sites' for it to work, and it does now.

The only thing is that when I open the site it opens a new IE and loads it in there. As it is the only site in my trusted sites I cant load any other sites with that IE, so I need to go to a different one if that makes sence.

How can I make it so that my trusted sites open with my non-tusted sites (using tabs)?

A:Solved: How can I make trusted sites and normal sites open together?

Set your tab preferences in IE, otherwise, try Firefox and set those tab preferences.

I have my Firefox preferences for Tabs set to never open in a new window, and always open at least one tab:
New pages should be opened in: a new tab rather than a new window
Always show the tab bar
When I open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately
Warn me when closing multiple tabs
Warn me when opening multiple tabs might slow down Firefox

I need some help--I believe my son 12 year old son is visiting inappropriate website while we are at work. At the end of the night I clean out the temporary internet folder to free up space on the computer and last night I was just scan the folder and found all kinds of porn websites!! So I clean it out and when I logged on this evening the sites he normally visits are there but so where other porn sites.

Tell if Im wrong but is it true that every website you visit is recorded in the temp internet folder? and so popups get space there and when those cookies automatically go there is the computer is just left on which is what he is trying to tell me.

So is there another way to find out a list of websites that have been visited.

I really need to get these questions asked.

Hi all. Ive been battling this issue for a few days now. whenever i visit sites such as myspace or, when im either searching around on the sites my computer will lock up. i can hear it processing information as if it were getting sent massive amounts of information, yet when i check the sites on another computer in my house i dont have these issues. i tried disabling javascript and it worked for part of the problem, but when i started to search the website further, i encountered the issue again. This occurs with both internet explorer and firefox, and my flashplayer and windows media player are both updated. ive searched my computer with spybot and adaware.

A:Computer locking up when visiting certain sites

Try reseting you security permissions. Goto tool > internet options > security tab. Click on default level, then set it to low hit apply, then move it right back to medium and hit apply. This will put it back to microsoft recommended settings. let us know if that works.

Hi Folks,

My computer has been taken over by a virus and I am now only able to visit certain websites that require a password to enter. (facebook, mobileme, banking, etc). Cannot browse general websites (google, msn, windows, etc.). This ocurred on Dec 31st about 2:11PM as I tried to install a program that scanned OK with Norton AV. I then downloaded Twister Anti-Trojan and scanned the file to find out that it was infected with Trojan.Agent.dsci.ynkb. I have tried the Windows Malware Removal and it didn't correct my problem. I cannot find any information about this trojan on the web. Norton AV did give me alerts after the fact stating that conhost.exe was blocked from download by hxxp://

I have unplugged my connection to the internet until I can resolve this.

I have scanned my computer and have attached the files as requested. Any assistance will be appreciated. PS - I am on a different CPU to enter in this request.

My computer has the preloaded restore information (windows) on the D: drive of this computer.
Thanks Gerard

I have Windows XP Pro SP2.
I have run a complete system scan with Avast, Registry Mechanic, Ad-Aware, and superantispyware with no luck.

As the title states when I startup and log in, iexplore.exe is running in the background and sucks up a fair amount of my CPU.
I watch the Avast Web Shield and it shows me ie hitting a bunch of sites I have never been to before, mostly TV sites. I can also here the clicking links sound in my speakers and occasionally some noises when it hits a site with audio.
Once I just kill iexplore.exe in the task manager everything goes back to normal.

I'm not sure how it all started, but I initially noticed it because the task manager was disabled from my account! I figured out how to re-enable it, but now I'm stuck with this thing...

Hello NeilH and welcome to BC I see that you ran registry mechanic. The writers of registry tools don't know what specifically you have on your system, and if you don't know what you are doing, you can create real havoc with your computer or programs. One of the most important things to do when changing things in the registry is to back it up so you can reverse it if necessary. I completely hosed my Adobe products by using a registry cleaner. Fortunately, I was able to reverse what I'd done because I'd backed it up.-------It would be helpful if you posted the log from SUPERAntiSpyware. Did you run it in Safe Mode? Please indicate whether it was safe mode or normal mode when you post the log. In order to find the log double-click the SUPERAntispyware icon on your desktop.o Click Preferences. Click the Statistics/Logs tab.o Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log and choose the appropriate date.o It will open in your default text editor (such as Notepad/Wordpad).o Please highlight everything in the notepad, then right-click and choose copy.?

What is the domain of the site? The "*" just means any prefix for a URL on that site would be trusted.

Copy your link ( into the buffer.

Go to "Start > Settings > Control Panel > Internet Options > Security > Trusted Sites > Sites". Paste your link in the upper window and click "add".

It may "choke" on your link because it wants a secure connection. Add an "s" to the "https:...". Maybe that will work. Maybe that is why it hasn't been working in the past.

If there is already a similar link in there, delete it.

I have tried and tried to figure this out and just cant get it.

We remotely connect to sites using remotely anywhere along with tunnelier.

So we login with tunnelier to the server, then tunnelier gives us our port number, and to connect to the site, we put http://localhost:11233 in our browser.

This all works great, except we get the certificate error in IE.

What i would like to know is how to add localhost to the trusted sites list, so that no matter what the port number is, here 11233, we wont get the certificate error where we are having to click continue to website.

Anyone know how to do this?

Did you uncheck "requires server verification"? It looks like you did the IE8 version of that, but afterwards did you re-look at all the security settings, particularly involving scripting and ActiveX? Outside of IE did you also check the way you set up your intranet to see what restrictions might be causing both problems?

About a year ago I had CWS come into my system attached to a freeware program. It was present and detected by the various spyware removal programs used in this forum until I discovered the CWS was embedded in the freeware program called Index.Dat Viewer. I removed the Index.Dat Viewer program and then ran scans with HijackThis, CWShredder, Ad-aware, Spybot S&D to assure that CWS was indeed gone and I also have SpywareBlaster protection running. I then ran JV16 Power Tools and the scan came up with about 250 Registry entries related to CWS, I deleted all the entries.

I regularly do scans with Ad-aware, Spybot S&D, HijackThis and CWShredder. None of these scans have come up with any CWS entries since my problem of a year ago.

Today I did a scan with a Spyware removal program called "pcOrion". It's one of those free to scan buy to remove deals except this program will list the Registry key of the entries it finds. It found CWS, an Exploit and IETray. I was concerned with the CWS and decided to run Ad-aware and then Spybot S&D to see if they would also find the CWS. Neither program found the CWS.

I then went into the Registry key that was given by the pcOrion scan which was: HKEY_Current_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains

This key is the Trusted Sites Domains and it had approximately 200-300 entries of CWS, Adult XXX, BonziBuddy and every other scum domain I've ever seen before.

The problem:
Unwanted pop-ups that re-direct me to random selling sites from trusted sites that previously never allowed pop-ups.
This happens predominantly with Firefox as that is my main browser (with AdBlock Plus) usually after loading a regular site I use and clicking the first link.
I also use two other browsers Chrome (with AdBlock Plus) and less ocassionally Opera (with no add-ons).
Internet Explorer has remained largely unused though it is now also rendered unusable by some download pop-up that locks into a cyclical event until I kill it via task manager.
My System:
I run an Acer Aspire with Windows 7 64-bit OS set to auto-update with the following protection:
Windows Firewall
Microsoft Security Essentials
MalwareBytes Anti-Malware
Spybot Search & Destroy
Steps Taken so far:
I regularly run the above programs which recently identified and removed several High/Severe risks (such as Win32/InstallMonster and Win32/Holleycann.A) as well as the plethora of less severe trackers and PUPs that seem to populate Spybot and CCleaner scans daily.
Following the advice found on this site, I've also run a complete system backup after uninstalling unused programs and clearing caches/temp folders etc.

The product is an e-learning course that is distributed on CD. It connects to a web site allowing the user to sign in online, but then is supposed to return to the CD to run through the content.

We have added the web site as a "Trusted Site" and that process works fine. The problem is that when we're on the web site and then try to access the local CD drive, the browser just doesn't respond. An example of the link would be:
[a href="D:\page.html"]Link[/a] ( where "D" is the CD drive and of course we're not using square brackets )

In our advanced internet settings we've enabled content to run from CD. The difference seems to be when you're already on a site to link back to the CD.

Also, this works fine on Win 2000, just not XP.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Okay, I am using Internet Explorer 6.0 mainly but there are other versions in our environment as well. Let me preface this by saying I know how to add a trusted site. What I need to know is how to mass deploy 3 trusted sites to multiple built PC's. Where does the PC indicate where the trusted sites for that PC are. Is this in an INI? Is it in the registry?

Let say I have and

I don't want to go through a 5 minute scenario at each PC (in many different locations so I would have to drive all over) adding these all in. Or worse yet a 15 minute over the phone conversation and ensuring they get the URL typed in right and so fourth. It would be much easier to send out a reg file for the people to click on or to just push a file to their PC's.

Please note all of these PC's do not have trusted sites setup so I don't have to worry about current preservation. Also I want this trusted site to be there no matter who logs onto the machine.

Anyone with any ideas on how trusted sites works mainly with I.E. 6.0 but if they want to point me to I.E. 5.0 and 4.0 stuff too that would work. Thanks in advance.

I have an application called deloitte, when i click the help button, it is opens up the following url,

While opening up the url, i get the following error
"Error in onReadyStateChange
Automation server can't create object"

My machine OS: Win XP - SP2
Browser: IE 6

I have searched in the web about this error, and found out the following setting needs to be enabled in IE,
"Initialize and script ActiveX control not marked as safe".

I asked my office network team to enable the setting (i don't have the permission to do). They told me this setting can't be done for internet zone.
Then i asked them to add this site as "Trusted Site" then enable the setting for "Trusted Sites" zone.

After that i'm not getting the error message, but the page looks same as previous (not loading properly).

So i just asked them to enable the setting for internet zone, just to check wheather enabling the setting in internet zone is working or not.
It is working fine, if they do it for internet zone.
But not working fine if they move to "Trusted sites", then enble the setting for "Trusted zone".

Is there any other way to resolve this error (apart form enabling that settings) (OR)
How to make it work by enabling the setting in "Trusted site" zone

This question relates to IE 8 running on Windows 7 x64 (but x86 ver of IE is running)
I would like to allow signed ActiveX controls to be installed automatically from Trusted sites even when a non administrative user is logged in.
At the start, when launching our in-house web site, I was getting a User Account Control message with the name of the signed ActiveX control that wants to install along with a prompt to enter admin credentials.  In researching the problem
and solution, I found that I needed to modify a GPO that applies to the workstation.  I modified the policy "ActiveX installation policy for sites in Trusted zones" and set it to enabled and Trusted Pub=Silently, Signed =
Silently, and unsigned = Prompt.
I then rebooted the computer.  After doing this, the UAC prompt is still appearing, but the text of the message has changed.  Now, instead of listing the ActiveX control that wants to install, it says "Internet Explorer Add-on Instraller" publisher
"Microsoft Windows" origin "Hard drive on this computer" with the CLSID {BDB57FF2-79B9-4205-94470F5FR85F37312}.
If I go back and "not configured" the GPO policy, it switches back to prompting with the name of the actual ActiveX control.
How do I get it so that ActiveX controls are allowed to install from trusted sites without prompting?

A:ActiveX control installation from Trusted Sites

I am having the same issue - the site shows as a Trusted Site, yet the Trusted Zones policy for ActiveX Installer Service is not functioning.  This is for a UAG site downloading the Endpoint Component Manager, the UAC prompt comes up for Internet Explorer
Add-on Installer.  The Microsoft Windows Certificate does have an expired date on it - which surprises me as it is the standard UAG software.
So any tricks for Trusted Sites and the ActiveX Installer Service?
Okay I think I got this working - reread the Microsoft instructions on AXIS and found the following notes:
Configuring the ActiveX installation policy for the Trusted sites zone

You can add Web sites that are trusted by your organization to the Trusted sites zone to enable them to be able to install ActiveX controls without requiring administrator approval. Sites in the
Trusted sites zone can be specified with wildcard characters in combination with a subdomain; for example, adding the Web site
https://* to the Trusted sites zone and then configuring the
ActiveX installation policy for sites in Trusted zone policy setting would enable all Web sites in the domain to install ActiveX controls onto computers in your organization. This can be useful if you have multiple trusted forests
in your organization.
To use this policy setting, you must also have enabled the Security Zones: Use only machine settings policy setting under

Hi Folks,

After setting up an intranet at my workplace, the odd one or two users can't access the intranet, they keep getting the windows login prompt.

When I try and add the site as a trusted site, it says it already exists in another zone, but it doesn't.

This happens mostly to users who have just had their account setup.

After researching on the web, I discovered it could be a registry problem associated with the group policy.

Can someone please explain how I can fix this and prevent it from happening in the future?

I have no experience of using a group policy, but If someone could please point me in the right direction.

Many thanks

We have had an issue whereby sites explicitly listed in our Trusted Sites in IE11 where still being rendered in compatibility mode. Some network traces show the user-agent string being sent include MSIE7 7.0 and hence this makes sense. So it seems the browser
is putting the site into compatibility mode. Digging around on the web we found this for IE8:

Compatibility View is used for Trusted sites in Internet Explorer 8
So it seems that this still applied for IE11. Now, we can work around by tweaking the options for automatic placement of sites into the intranet zone but we don't want to do that as there are modified security settings in the zones and we need to keep sites
in their zone assignments. 
So, I have a couple of questions:

This only seems to affect compatibility view and from a security zone perspective, the trusted site settings still appear to apply. Is this assumption correct i.e. explicit listing in a zone wins from a zone assignment perspective but compatibility view
decision logic is differentHow does enterprise mode tie into this? Is Enterprise mode site list checked first then the normal logic applied?

However, when I add "about:blank" to the Trusted Sites security zone, I do not face this problem.

I observed this problem in IE9 (not sure if this happens in IE7 or 8). Other browsers (Firefox, Chrome) do not give me such issues.

I am not sure what is going wrong in IE9. Any pointers towards resolving this?

Hi Technet
My domaincomputers have enhanced security switched on by default.
Being an educational institute, we try to incorporate a lot of news and video's in our lessons.
I had to move to the trusted websites because video was blocked.
Apparently, the Facebook/twitter integration (scripts on external websites) gets blocked by default because of said enhanced security. And because the website loads those scripts before the video, the video was also blocked.
When we link from PowerPoint to a website that is in the trusted list, that website won't load.
We just receive a blank page but ONLY when Internet Explorer has not been started yet.
If IE 11.0.9600.17937 already displays any website at all, the powerpoint-link works just fine.

While Apache servers are most likely affected, this advanced graphical statistics package also runs on ISS, Webstar and other web severs. The latest 6.3 version of AWStats was released on January 28, 2005. Based on Kaspersky's weblog malicious individuals are actively targeting vulnerable sites. Hackers/Crackers targeting sites with older AWStats version We are seeing vast numbers of sites being compromised at the moment. These sites are using an older version of AWStats, which is a free tool that generates advanced graphical statistics for web, ftp or mail servers. There is a vulnerability in AWStats 6.2 and previous versions which leads to remote command execution. This gives an attacker almost full control over the server.

A:Ina moment of weakness

Hello pdxireland

Did you do the uninstall from Add/Remove programs.

If that does not work, maybe the uninstaller is corrupted.
Use the installer you downloaded and install it again into the same folder.
Then try uninstalling again.

Still not working all you can do is a dirty uninstall
This involves just deleting all the folders and files then searching the registry to remove all signs of Ultra Button.

Are you up for that??

1. Delete all the Ultra Button folders. Also AntsSoft

2. Start/Search and type in
Ultra Button
"Start Search"
Delete everything it finds.

3. If you have no other AntsSoft products installed repeat step#2 searching for AntsSoft this time.

Now for the registry

1. Back up the registry
a. Click Start /Run and type in "regedit" (no quotes).
b. Next, click the File menu, Export
c. Select a location from the resulting box and give your backup registry a name. Save it in C:\

2. You must do this carefully. Make sure to ONLY delete Ultra Button/AntsSoft entries
Start/Run and type in

When regedit opens
Edit/Find and type
Ultra Button
in the box
Click "Find next"

An entry for Ultra Button will be found.
Right click/delete

Repeat this (find next) until you get a report saying "Finished Searching"

Repeat this step searching for AntsSoft

Ultra Button shouild be all gone now.

Shellshock-like Weakness May Affect Windows

As more people dig into the severity and depth of Bash vulnerabilities, it appears that similar Shellshock-like remote code execution is possible on Windows systems, with Windows servers in particular at risk for RCE attacks.The Security Factory, a Belgian security company, reported discovering a command injection vulnerability for Windows command-line shells that takes advantage of environment variables in a similar fashion to Bash exploits.
“What if we told you that a normal user in your network could take over the control of your Windows file-servers by just creating a special (but [not] so complex) directory-name in one of the directories he has access to?” the company wrote on its website. “In order to succeed, all the user has to do is create a folder with a special name and that you regularly run command-shell scripts for management purposes that have a (pretty common) coding vulnerability.”
Aviv Raff, CTO at Seculert, said there are similarities to Shellshock with this issue and that it extends even into the Windows 10 preview.

Internet security vendor Symantec (Nasdaq: SYMC - news) has announced that several of its firewall and gateway products are vulnerable to denial-of-service attacks, and it has issued firmware to fix the loopholes.
The Symantec products affected are Symantec Firewall/VPN Appliance 100, 200 and 200R and the Symantec Gateway Security 320, 360 and 360R.
Security Advisory
A security advisory posted on Symantec's Web site states that the vulnerabilities "are remotely exploitable and can allow an attacker to perform a denial-of-service attack against the firewall appliance, identify active services in the WAN interface, and exploit one of these services to collect and alter the firewall's configuration."
The Symantec Firewall/VPN Appliances models 100, 200 and 200R are vulnerable to all three attacks, while the Symantec Gateway Security models 320, 360 and 360R are not vulnerable to the denial-of-service attack, but are vulnerable to the other two types of attack.
In its advisory, Symantec states that it is "not aware of any active attempts against organizations impacted by this issue."
Connection Handling
Secunia, a Danish Internet security company, also issued an advisory, stating that the DoS attack is made possible because of a problem with the firewall's connection handling, whereby the firewall stops responding via a UDP port scan of all of the ports on the firewall's WAN interface.

On my Windows 7 system I ran "Switcher" which works wonderfully and has a light footprint, however it is not compatible with Windows 8. I have tried "BetterDesktopTool" and some others, but nothing seems to work adequately. BetterDesktopTool is usable, but seems buggy and seems to slow down the system.

As a side note, many of the Expose clones available require Aero.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

IE flaw exposes weakness in Yahoo! filtering
By John Leyden
Posted: 23/03/2004 at 11:52 GMT

Flaws in the filtering technology used by Web-based email services make it possible for hackers to smuggle viruses past defences.

Israeli security outfit GreyMagic Software warned today that this "severe security" vulnerability could allow attackers to run code of their choice, "simply by sending an email to an unsuspecting Hotmail or Yahoo! user". When the victim attempts to read this email, the code executes to potentially dire consequence (e.g. theft of the user's login and password, seizure of machines etc.).

The problem stems from a Cross-Site Scripting vulnerability involving IE. To blame is a new way to embed script involving an IE technology called HTML+TIME (based on SMIL), which is meant to add timing and media synchronization support to HTML pages.

The flaw weakens the ability of Web-based email services to screen this type of HTML content for malicious code. But users with up-to-date anti-virus scanners and personal firewalls are likely to be protected, even if hackers punch through that layer of defence.

GreyMagic has alerted Microsoft to this issue and worked with the company to fix the vulnerability in Hotmail. Hotmail is no longer vulnerable.

Unfortunately, all attempts by GreyMagic to contact Yahoo's security department failed; so Yahoo! webmail is still vulnerable.

GreyMagic warns that other web-based email systems may also b... Read more
