Display Programs That Open Connections With Moo0 ConnectionWatcher

Display Programs That Open Connections With Moo0 ConnectionWatcher

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); One of the little things that computer users can do to improve the overall security of their computer system is to check the open connections regularly.

See what images are being viewed on your network with driftnet

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); I want to preface this article by saying I am not, in any way advocating spying on your users. With that said, there are times (and reasons) why you might need to see what images are being viewed on your network. Whether it be an end user who is viewing content that goes against specific company policies or, worse, against the law. When this happens, you might have need or cause to see just what is being viewed from your LAN....

Adding LDAP entries from the command line

Adding LDAP entries from the command line

Okay, so we’ve been dealing with LDAP a bit here on Ghacks, but mostly we’ve look at GUI tools (check out LDAP content on Ghacks). All of the GUI tools are good, but nothing beats the command line for pure control and power. And what’s best, once you have LDAP installed, you have all the tools necessary to manage your LDAP data! There’s really no need for further installation. So, yeah…LDAP comes with it’s own set of management tools and, in this article,...

Expect Out Of Band Windows Security Release On August 2

An increase in attacks exploiting a recent vulnerability in LNK files in the Windows operating system, sparked the creation and imminent release of an out of band patch to protect PCs running Windows from those attacks.

This included a Microsoft Fix-IT solution, third party software to detect and block malicious LNK files, and a Stuxnet Rootkit Remover to clean infected computer systems from common...

Creating self-signed certificates with gnoMINT

Creating self-signed certificates with gnoMINT

I do a lot of work with Linux servers. Many of those servers are either web or mail that require the use of a signed certificate for authentication. In some of these cases a CA authorized certificate is necessary. In other cases though a self-signed certificate can be used. I can generate a self-signed certificate by command line pretty easily…but not everyone wants to take the time to learn how to do this. For those that want to ease of a user-friendly GUI tool to generate their...

Less Spam Please, Integrates Disposable Email Services In Firefox

Yopmail for instance is a very popular service, to use a yopmail address the registrant...

Remove TV Commercials With Life Extender

Remove TV Commercials With Life Extender

Recorded TV shows usually contain one or multiple commercial breaks, which most users would probably like to remove to save storage space, and watch recorded tv shows without interruption. A typical 30 minute TV show has between five to ten minutes of advertisements, which means that removing those ads from the video will save between ten to twenty minutes of playtime and storage space per hour. Life Extender automatically removes TV commercials from recorded videos. The program works...

Yahoogle.co.jp!

Just as Microsoft and Yahoo! have joined forces in search, now Yahoo! Japan and Google have linked up too. Yahoo!’s Japanese search engine will now just Google’s technology rather than stick with fellow partner Microsoft and their Bing search engine as reported by NeoWin.

Enable WebGL, Direct2D Rendering In Firefox 4 Beta

The latest beta of Firefox 4, and actually several previous versions of Firefox as well, have features included that are disabled by default, mostly because they have not been tested enough to enable them for all Internet users by default. If you have read the Firefox 4 Beta 2 release notes you may have noticed that they explicitly mention two features that are included but disabled in the beta release, specifically: Full WebGL support is included but disabled by default at this time An...

URL Security Improves Visual Indication Of Secure Sites In Firefox

The Firefox web browser offers three visual indicators that the active website is using encryption to protect the user’s connection from third parties. A golden padlock in the status bar, the https in the address bar, and the extended favicon area with the company name and green background all indicate that the user is on a secure page of a website. But there is also a distinction between verified and unverified hosts. Verified hosts are shown with a green background, unverified...

Web Temp, CPU Temperature Meter Statistics Software

Web Temp, CPU Temperature Meter Statistics Software

Windows users who want to monitor the temperature of their system have an assortment of tools at hand. From the well acclaimed Speedfan over Real Temp to other PC temp monitoring applications. But barely any of those offer in depth statistics about, most display minimum, maximum and current temperatures with no option to check temperature levels at a specific time of the day, or information about the progression of temps throughout the day.

Temparks, Store Temporary Bookmarks In Google Chrome

Temparks, Store Temporary Bookmarks In Google Chrome

I often store websites I visit in the bookmarks to access their contents at a later time. Happens quite often after reading an RSS feed entry, or stumbling upon an interesting link that I have no time to follow at that moment, and that I do not want to keep open in a browser tab. The problem with this approach is that those “read later” bookmarks get mixed with the other bookmarks. It would of course be possible to create a special bookmarks folder for temporary bookmarks,...

TreeSize Free, Hard Drive Storage Allocation Analyzer

TreeSize Free, Hard Drive Storage Allocation Analyzer

I have to take special attention to the storage space allocation of the main hard drive in my new computer. The Solid State Drive has a size of 80 Gigabytes, which fills up quickly, especially without proper disk management. Installing a single game or large application on the drive could be enough to fill it to the brim, which would result in performance drops all over the board, as hard drives react with performance drops if they are (almost) filled completely with data. TreeSize Free...
