Under Security Information Center there are 5 sections: Alerts, Advisories & Bulletins, Best Practices, Security & Technology News, Vulnerability Report & Security Research.

But there is no section for posts about "downloads", and i mean e-books / guides etc, not software.
Security & Technology News or Best Practices doesn´t seem to be the right sections.

A good book or guide written sime time ago is not exactly "news", but it might still be very useful.

I suggest creating a new section for security-related "downloads" like e-books or guides.

Another alternative could be to rename Best Practises to something more understandable,
because i don´t think anyone understands what Best Practises means, and what it is meant for.
I don´t... ;)

That section has been empty until today, no one has posted there...
There is 1 post now (mine)....

Security Engineering — The Book

"
‘There is an extraordinary textbook written by Ross Anderson, professor of computer security at University of Cambridge.
It’s called Security Engineering, and despite being more than 1,000 pages long, it’s one of the most readable pop-science slogs of the decade.’
Ben Goldacre


‘I'm incredibly impressed that one person could produce such a thorough coverage.
Moreover, you make the stuff easy and enjoyable to read. I find it just as entertaining
— and far more useful — than novels (and my normal science fiction).
When I first got it in the mail, I said to myself "I'm never going to read all of that.
"But once I started reading I just kept going and going. Fantastic: well done.
Now, let's hope that all those in charge of security for information technology will also read the book and heed the lessons.’
Don Norman


‘The book that you MUST READ RIGHT NOW is the second edition of Ross Anderson's Security Engineering book.
Ross did a complete pass on his classic tome and somehow made it even better...’
Gary McGraw


‘It's beautiful.
This is the best book on the topic there is’
Bruce Schneier
"

This book is by many considered as "the bible" !

All chapters from the second edition now available free online: Security Engineering - A Guide to Building Dependable Distributed Systems

However, it´s a total of 33 PDF-documents to download, and unfortunately they are not available as an archive ("zip"),
so there is a lot of link-clicking to download them all.

I have downloaded the whole book, created an archive (7-zip, 41.6 MB),
and uploaded it to my Onedrive where you can get it with just 2 clicks.

Note: Microsoft puts the 7z-archive in a zip-file when you download...

And, I have double-checked the archive on VirusTotal, so it should be safe to download:

Note: For anyone wondering, this is perfectly legal since it´s the author himself (Ross Anderson),
that has made the book available for download, on his own webbpage.

What is that Windows Update entry below?
Quote
Windows Update - Windows Genuine Advantage Notification - (pre-checked, not required, should not be high-priority).

The actual Windows Update service on Windows?

Unlocker doesn't seems to have any official website anymore, only third-party hosting. To be removed from the list?

Pale Moon, HostsMan, AdBlock Plus or now Adblock Latitude, Ghostery

https://addons.palemoon.org/extensions/privacy-and-security/adblock-latitude/

Compatibility

Adblock Latitude version 3.0.2 works with Pale Moon 25.0 to 26.*

The change keeps all your same sitting etc so all works the same.

Note: you must uninstall AdBlockPlus before you install AdBlockLatitude.

I think that if you download any Adobe products from a web browser that isn't Google Chrome, you get Google Chrome bundled. If you use Google Chrome, you get McAfee and/or Norton Security Scan. That's how it used to work in the past if I remember correctly.

I use Pale Moon now, previously i used Firefox, and i have only seen McAfee the last few years.
If i remember correctly, it was Norton before that.
I have not seen Google Chrome offered.

I´ll take a look.

I suggest creating a new section for How to´s / Guides / Tutorials.

There are one post (mine), Create a RAMdisk and speed up your Windows computer that feels a bit misplaced currently, under Products Info & Discussions... ;)

I haven´t checked the whole forum, there might also (already) be other posts that could be placed in such a section.

Products Info & Discussions / Weird problem with Outlook 2010
« on: August 28, 2015, 06:25:17 pm »
I have a problem with Outlook 2010.
Normally, when you have created a new account it is an "internal" account, meaning that when you right-click on it you have an option to "Remove" it.

When i create a new account it looks like a "mounted" PST-file, like opening or importing an already existing PST-file,
right-clicking on it shows an option to "Close" instead of "Remove" the account.

What is really weird is that this happens with new accounts / emailaddresses that have never been used before in Outlook.
I know that Outlook can be weird, and create new PST-files with almost the same name, fx. if there already is a PST-file with the same name.
But there is no "old" PST-files, i have doublechecked the folder.

I have created & deleted accounts several times.
I have used scanpst several times, it finds and repairs errors, but the problem remains.

Of course i could let the new accounts continue to be "mounted", as it really doesn´t matter.
But i suspect there is an error in Outlook, and i want to find and fix it.

I wonder if there are any limit on the number of accounts you can have in Outlook ?

Any ideas about how to fix this ?

Please forgive me, I don´t mean to be rude, but this is old news...
If i remember correctly MS announced this 2014...

I understand that "product-specific" forums cannot be listed.
I said:
Emsisoft gives professional help for FREE on their forum.

Oh, I should have described it better, that sentence was too short.....
This is not "product-specific" support.

Emsisoft gives FREE professional help for everyone on their forum.
They will help you, even if you are not already a customer who has bought (or even used) their software.
Believing that you will buy their software afterwards, when you have seen how good the software and the support are...

That´s why i suggested adding it to the list.

Once things settle down, and it is determined what fits best and where, the News & Announcements forum will be a good place to provide that type of information.

On the contrary, it´s now when sections are being added, moved, and renamed etc. that we need that information.
Later, when the work is finished, then we will not have problems finding sections and posts... ;)

Regarding "Malware Removal & Help Centers": http://calendarofupdates.org/index.php?board=11.0

Emsisoft gives professional help for FREE on their forum.
So I suggest adding Emsisoft to the list.
