Back home. Good to be home.
It’s the 38th week of the year, and Microsoft issues security bulletins numbered Fifty-One and Fifty-Two. It seems like Terminal Services is insecure, unless you own all the wires between terminal and server. So much for remote control of web servers over the Internet! And the Java VM has a little problem, too. Time to patch!
I left my machine on while I was away from home, as it is now serving some shared files as servers are moved around. I came home to a blue screen and the “your machine isn’t fully ACPI compliant” message I’ve seen before. Must be a recent patch or new software – ZoneAlarm? and McAfee? come to mind. Hope it’s not time to reformat.
