Windows Event Logs to Syslog – Update

I came across this site earlier, seems to have a good amount of resources linked for anyone looking to implement Windows event log to syslog. http://www.loganalysis.org/windows-to-syslog/ There’s not much in terms of documentation, but it lists a number of tools which may help people in implementing this. Good luck! EDIT: Seems in linking to this, …

iPhone Data Recovery

iPhone needs to be jailbroken to do this (tested on my iPhone 4, with iOS 4.0.1 using the www.jailbreakme.com jailbreaker). You don’t need OpenSSH installed, but I prefer it. If you install OpenSSH, connect using [email protected], password ‘alpine’ – I suggest changing this using the `passwd` command while you’re at it. MobileTerminal currently doesn’t work …

There’s always a better way – Windows Fixes

It really annoys me when people say, “oh, why don’t you just re-install Windows” or “do a repair install”. Over the past few years I had numerous machines come in that plain wouldn’t boot in to Windows, and even other technical colleagues would comment that it needed Windows reinstalled or repaired. To me this is …

HTTP Referrer Spam

Mac OS X Speedup Bits

I decided my Mac was running a bit slower, something I would usually refer to as the “Windows downhill effect”. Turns out Mac OS X has it too! Albeit slightly less intrusive… As usual, Google delivered. I tested out a bunch of apps, and heck, even purchased my first piece of shareware, EVER. Amongst the …

Macintosh Performance Guide: Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard: Booting the 64-bit Kernel

I was stunned the other day when I was looking through my system info on my Snow Leopard equipped Mac Book Pro to find it was running in 32bit mode…. Turns out you have to manually configure it to run in 64bit every single time you boot up (as seen further below), or by holding …

Outlook 2010 + Social Networks

I thought this was super massive awesome cool plus plus!!!!!1111oneoneone I just installed the Office 2010 beta, and jumped in to my email quickly to grab a call. When I went to reply to an email, I noticed a little bar, similar to the “security” bar you get at the top of Internet Explorer, at …

First iPhone “Virus”

Interesting. Only affects jailbroken iPhones. I’m curious to see *how* it does this, but I’m taking an educated guess that the virus scans for iPhone’s with SSHD running, and then attempts to logon with the default username / password (which is root/alpine by the way), and then has it’s way with the victim’s iPhone. Clever, …
