      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.

anti-phishing group gets help from Microsoft

1 post in this topic

Microsoft on Wednesday announced it will donate $46,000 worth of software to an agency fighting "phishing" and will make a full-time analyst available to the group.

 

The recipient of these contributions is the National Cyber-Forensics and Training Alliance, an organization set up jointly by the FBI, the National White Collar Crime Center, Carnegie Mellon University and West Virginia University.

 

The Microsoft analyst will help the alliance make sense of data related to Internet crime, including violations of the federal Can-Spam Act, as well as phishing, the software giant said. Additionally, the analyst will work with the group to make sure law enforcement has timely industry data and to help design training programs for police.

 

The alliance was founded as part of an effort to build a collaborative environment for fighting Internet crime. In a statement, Microsoft said that such efforts are important.

 

"The tactics of spammers, hackers and other online con artists are becoming increasingly sophisticated, and as a company, Microsoft is dedicating resources to help law enforcement find those responsible for harming consumers," Nancy Anderson, deputy general counsel for the company, said in a statement.
