      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.

pcAnywhere users – patch now!

- https://isc.sans.edu/diary.html?storyid=12463

Last Updated: 2012-01-25 22:24:12 UTC - "Symantec released a patch for pcAnywhere products that fixes couple of vulnerabilities, among which the most dangerous one allows remote code execution... for last couple of weeks there have been a lot of rumors about source code of several Symantec’s products that got stolen by yet unknown hackers. Besides a post that listed file names nothing else has been released in public yet, as far as we know... if you are a pcAnywhere user – PATCH NOW.

Update:

And a short update: according to DShield data it appears that someone started scanning around for services on port 5631 (pcAnywhere). While the number of sources is still relatively low (indicating a single scanner, or a small number of them), the number of targets is pretty high. See for yourself here*."
