      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

      PLEASE READ - Reversing upgrade   02/23/2017

      We have found that this new upgrade is somewhat of a disaster.  We are finding lots of glitches in being able to post and administer the forum.  Additionally, there are new costs associated with the upgrade that we simply cannot afford.  As a result, we have decided to reverse course and go back to the previous version of our software.  Since this will involve restoring it from a backup, we will lose posts that have been added since January 30 or possibly even some before that.    If you started a topic during that time, we urge you to make backups of your posts and you will need to start the topics over again after the change.  You can simply paste the copies of your posts that you created at that point.    If you joined the forum this month, you will need to re-register since your membership will be lost along with the posts.  Since you have a concealed password, we cannot simply restore your membership for you.   We are going to backup as much as we can so that it will reduce inconvenience for our members.  Unfortunately we cannot back everything up since much will be incompatible with the old version of our software.  We apologize for the confusion and regret the need to do this even though it is not viable to continue with this version of the software.   We plan to begin the process tomorrow evening and, if it goes smoothly, we shouldn't be offline for very long.  However, since we have not done this before, we are not sure how smoothly it will go.  We ask your patience as we proceed.   EDIT: I have asked our hosting service to do the restore at 9 PM Central time and it looks like it will go forward at that time.  Please prepare whatever you need to prepare so that we can restore your topics when the forum is stable again.

June 13, 2007 (Computerworld) - "Exploits appeared within hours for two of the bugs that Microsoft Corp. fixed yesterday... A. Micalizzi went public with a pair of exploits -- one successful against Windows 2000, the other against Windows XP -- that leverage one of the six IE bugs patched yesterday. A bug -- actually two because both the ActiveListen and ActiveVoice ActiveX controls are flawed -- was tagged "critical" in IE6 on Windows 2000 and Windows XP SP2, and "critical" in IE7 on both XP SP2 and Windows Vista. ActiveListen and ActiveVoice provide speech processing and text-to-speech to the browser. Microsoft's MS07-033 security update fixed the flaw... Today, another researcher posted proof-of-concept exploit code on Full Disclosure for the critical SChannel (Security Channel) vulnerability patched in MS07-031. Thomas Lim, CEO of Singapore-based COSEINC, said his exploit "may lead to an unrecoverable heap corruption condition, causing the application to terminate," or in some cases, repeatedly crash an application to cause a system reboot. His exploit wasn't able to inject remote code, however..."

MS07-033 exploit in use in the wild

Last Updated: 2007-06-23 15:29:36 UTC ~ "The Symantec folks identified a website exploiting a bug from this months Microsoft patches, specifically the Microsoft Internet Explorer Speech API 4 COM Object Instantiation Buffer Overflow Vulnerability. Here is the URL to their blog entry:

Apparently, the actual exploit is similar to the proof of concept code posted on a popular exploit site ten days ago."
