Shellshock bash bug

Test your vulnerability by executing this in your terminal
env x='() { :;}; echo vulnerable' bash -c 'echo hello'
and this
env X='() { (a)=>\' bash -c "echo echo vuln"; [[ "$(cat echo)" == "vuln" ]] && echo "still vulnerable :("
If you can see word “vulnerable” it means your system is vulnerable to this bug and you should update your system asap.

Long time ago I was encouraged by my friends to use ZSH instead. This shell is not affected by this bug, but still you will have a lot of scripts in your system that by default call for bash, so you should still update your system.

Directly plenty of webservers and DHCP servers were affected. Whatever was exposed to the Internet is potentially compromised, so please check your firewall logs and system logs.

Hah. When I turned on my Raspbmc I have noticed a notification “Patching bash vulnerability”. Auto update is enabled on it. :)

Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 difference

You will see that some of the servers have this description Windows Server FE Standard and some other have R2 at the end.
Briefly the difference is as follows:
Windows Vista SP1 = Windows Server 2008 (FE)
Windows Vista SP2 = Windows Server 2008 SP2
Windows 7 = Windows Server 2008 R2
Support for all of these systems will expire in 2020 though.

Outlook autofill – nk2 files

Note Outlook 2007 and earlier versions store the nickname cache .nk2 file in the following folder.

Windows XP
Drive:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
Windows Vista and later versions

To import .nk2 files into Outlook 2013, follow these steps:

Make sure that the .nk2 file is in the following folder:
Note The .nk2 file must have the same name as your current Outlook 2013 profile. By default, the profile name is “Outlook.” To check the profile name, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click Mail.
In the Mail Setup dialog box, click Show Profiles.
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type outlook.exe /importnk2, and then click OK. This should import the .nk2 file into the Outlook 2013 profile.

Note After you import the .nk2 file, the contents of the file are merged into the existing nickname cache that is currently stored in your mailbox.
