      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.

Last Updated: 2007-06-15 06:40:44 UTC ~ "Several of our ever-vigilant readers have warned us of a new targeted Trojan “document” that is being sent out specifically to executives in corporations... It is another word “document” with a malicious embedded object similar to the BBB, IRS, FTC and other targeted trojan “documents” we have seen lately. The file sent is Proforma_Invoice.doc

Those AV vendors that recognized at virustotal were:

Authentium 4.93.8 06.15.2007 W32/Dropper.ESR

Fortinet 06.15.2007 W32/Nuclear!tr

Sophos 4.18.0 06.12.2007 Troj/BHO-BP

Symantec 10 06.15.2007 Downloader

Panda 06.15.2007 Suspicious file

The document itself contains a icon of a pair of books (blue and yellow) and a magnifying glass and the text



The icon represents a “Packaged Object”.

Clicking the icon in XPSP2 resulted in a windows popup box that stated:

“The publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software?


Publisher: Unknown Publisher

Type: Application

The three copies we have seen so far were all the same, all were 689,152 bytes long and all had a md5 hash of 47fff5b9d3765b70571454146ea9f244.

A word of caution: Do NOT open strange documents or run untrusted binaries on a machine you don’t wish to format and reinstall the OS on!..."
