Windows XP: Microsoft Releases Critical Patch MS08-067

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,


Today Microsoft surprised everyone with release of its latest security patch for Windows XP customers. MS08-067 is a patch for a vulnerability in RPC Service. RPC is a critical Windows XP service that allows programmers to run code locally or remotely.

Normally Microsoft releases all its security patches on 2nd Tuesday of each month. That is why it is called “Patch Tuesday” by Systems Administrators. This is first emergency patch release by Microsoft since April 2007.

Here is an excerpt from Microsoft Website:

This security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability in the Server service. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if an affected system received a specially crafted RPC request. On Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 systems, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability without authentication to run arbitrary code. It is possible that this vulnerability could be used in the crafting of a wormable exploit. Firewall best practices and standard default firewall configurations can help protect network resources from attacks that originate outside the enterprise perimeter.

This security update is rated Critical for all supported editions of Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and rated Important for all supported editions of Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008.

Good news is that there have been only very limited and targeted attacks to date. Also another new thing this time is that in combating vulnerability, Microsoft relied only on the feedback from its customers. which is good and new for Microsoft.

How to Optimize Your Internet Connection to Get 100 % Bandwidth

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


Most of Internet connections are working below capacity. A simple bandwidth test would reveal that your own Internet connection is working well below its capacity. some times below 60% of the bandwidth is utilized. Below are some of the tricks I have collected that may help you get most juice out of your internet connection.

Increase bandwidth by tweaking QoS in Windows XP Pro

The following tweak applies only to Windows XP Professional edition. The default system behavior is that all 100% bandwidth is available, however, if there is a running application that indicates to the OS it needs to send high priority/real time data, then as long as it has the socket open, Windows XP will restrict “best effort” traffic to 80% of the bandwidth so that high priority traffic can be accommodated. Basically, applications can make this request to the operating system for QoS support using the QoS application programming interfaces (APIs) in Windows and this only applies if a specific app is requesting QoS.

If you’d like to change how much bandwidth is reserved for QoS (the default is 20% of the total bandwidth), do the following:

  • Make sure you’re logged in as “Administrator” (not just any account with admin privileges).
  • Navigate to START>Run and type: gpedit.msc
  • Navigate to Local Computer Policy > Administrative Templates > Network > QOS Packet Scheduler
  • In the right window, double-click the limit reservable bandwidth setting
  • On the setting tab, check the enabled setting.
  • Where it says “Bandwidth limit %”, change it to read 0 (or whatever percentage you want to reserve for high priority QoS data)
  • Click OK, close gpedit.msc
  • Under START > My Computer > My Network Connections > View Network Connections, right-click on your connection and under Properties (where it lists your protocols), make sure QOS Packet Scheduler is enabled.
