  2. There is currently no official place for ZoneAlarm users to turn in feature requests. Under popular demand, I have created a (unofficial) place in my forum to collect feature requests for all ZoneAlarm products. Do note that this place is not for support issues, or for pure complaining! I will submit all reasonable requests to the ZoneAlarm team directly. http://chiawaikian.proboards78.com/index.cgi?board=zarequest

  10. Bloated means that the program has too many bells and whistles that are not required by normal users. As a result, the program uses a lot of resources and subsequently slow the whole system now. Norton is a good example.
  11. AOL has cut off access to certain IP addresses from its instant messenger network in order to slow down the possible impact of a bot spreading over AIM. "I will note that this started with a click happy user on AIM to the best of our knowledge," SANS diarist Scott Fendley wrote in the opening of the report. The SANS Internet Storm Center posted about a submitted report on a bot making the rounds via AIM. The bot attempts to contact other bots and sites by using an encrypted P2P connection to port 8/TCP on machines. "Flow analysis and/or tcpdump looking for mysterious port 8/TCP traffic seems to be the best way to detect these infections on your network," the report said, noting that the bot does not use DNS to find other Command & Control sites. By using a test computer to observe the bot's behavior, the submitter noted its behavior. The bot tried to connect to 22 hardcoded IP addresses over port 8/TCP. "Since it tried to contact each of these many times, and not any other IP addresses, I feel it is fairly safe to guess it was not randomly selecting IPs to obscure "the real C&Cs"." Symantec reported on its Security Response Site that the bot can propagate through email and over network shares. Users and corporate admins should ensure their antivirus signatures are up to date. They can avoid potential exploits by verifying their systems have been updated with available patches to shut down any holes the bot could use to enter a system or a network. http://www.securitypronews.com/news/securi...ariousBots.html
  12. Microsoft has launched AdCenter in an effort to attract more pay-per-click advertisements. The service allows the display of more relevant online ads, which should lead to increased revenues for Microsoft and higher conversion rates for advertisers. AdCenter lets advertisers bid on search keywords around which an ad appears, and offers additional targeting features that control the geographic location of the target audience, for instance, or the time of day when the ads are displayed. The service goes beyond online search advertising. Microsoft unfolded its Live Software strategy last year in which it plans to introduce a series of free, ad-supported online applications such as email, blogging tools and security products. "Ad-supported software services are an integral part of Microsoft's plans to give consumers access to a broader variety of digital media, whenever they want and on whatever device they prefer," said Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer. "Our close partnership with the ad community is extremely important to us as we evolve Microsoft from a software company into the world's largest, most attractive provider of online media through MSN, Windows Live and AdCenter." The service is a response to Google's AdSense programme and Yahoo's Search Marketing solutions, formerly known as Overture. These services have been instrumental in increasing revenue from online search for their respective owners. Although the Microsoft AdCenter bidding process is similar to Google's Adsense, Microsoft offers finer targeting mechanisms. The service was announced in March 2005 and Microsoft is already using AdCenter in Singapore and France. Staring this week AdCenter will become the exclusive online advertising platform for Microsoft's English websites in the US. A test in the UK is scheduled for June. http://www.vnunet.com/vnunet/news/2155366/...-unwraps-online
