Stay classy, Microsoft

Someone more cynical than myself might think that Microsoft's sudden 66% decrease of OneDrive storage space is a bait & switch - give away the space for free until users become dependent, than take it away, threaten to delete it, forcing those who have become accustomed to the free service to pony up and pay.

Fixing Event ID 10154 - The WinRM service failed to create the following SPN

The Problem The configuration of the system when this error was encountered is as follows: A. Windows Server 2008 R2 Redundant Domain Controllers - we will call these DC1.joshwieder.com and DC2.joshwieder.com B. Windows Server 2003 Web Server with Windows Remote Management enabled / part of the Active directory deployment - we will call this WEB.joshwieder.com C. For the sake of our example, let's say I have configured an OU named "Web Servers" on those domain controllers Whenever the Windows 2003 Web server reboots, or WinRM.exe service on the Windows 2003 Web server restarts, the following error was logged into the Event Viewer: Event ID: 10154 Source: Microsoft-Windows-WinRM Version: 6.1 Symbolic Name: LOG_WSMAN_SPN_CREATION Message: The WinRM service failed to create the following SPN: %1.

Email server using amavisd-new fails with (!)DENIED ACCESS from IP 1.2.3.4, policy bank ''

I have used ClamAV and Spamassassin for many years. I've had a less experience with Amavis (now amavisd-new), but I've decided to give it a try with a new mail server deployment I've been working on. As a reference for my install, I relied on the documentation provided by Amavis for integration with Postfix  as well as a somewhat-outdated but still-relevant walkthrough published by CentOS . Prior to integration with amavisd, Postfix worked fine. Similarly, I had no issues with Spamassassin on its own. But once I finished my install of amavisd-new, things quickly went wrong. Attempting to send messages to accounts hosted on my email server resulted in the following chaing of errors in my maillog: Jan 13 18:17:34 hostname amavis[31578]: Net::Server: 2016/01/13-18:17:34 CONNECT TCP Peer: "[192.168.1.1]:40209" Local: "[127.0.0.1]:10024" Jan 13 18:17:34 hostname amavis[31578]: loaded base policy bank Jan 13 18:17:34 hostname amavis[31578]: lookup_ip_

Wikileaks Global Intelligence File Dump is Loaded With Malicious Software

Click here for the second post on this topic, which includes more detailed technical information. Hector Monsegur, formerly sabu of Lulzsec, has offered his point of view on this post. Get his opinion by reading my third post on the topic. In my fourth post on this topic, I explain how malware is not limited to the Stratfor leak torrent - curated links throughout the Wikileaks.Org website allow users to download individual infected files . This series of posts is beginning to receive coverage from several newspapers around the world. German speakers should check out the story in Neue Zürcher Zeitung / New Zurich Times . For English speakers, I recommend The Register from the UK for an excellent summary of these findings . Beginning in  February 27, 2012 , the controversial news organization Wikileaks has been publishing a large and growing trove of emails from the private intelligence firm  Strategic Forecasting, Inc (more widely known as  Stratfor).
