Heartbleed bug hits web security


Several major technology firms have urged users to change all their passwords in the wake of the Heartbleed bug security breach.

The bug was first reported on Monday after going undetected for more than 2 years.

It bypasses the OpenSSL cryptographic library, which is used online to digitally scramble sensitive information as it passes between computer servers.

It is best known as the padlock icon that appears in the corner of web browser windows to show the page you are using online is secure when data moves back and forth.

The Heartbleed bug is a flaw in this system that can give anyone access to the data behind that encryption, including passwords and credit card details, without leaving any trace.

Get your site noticed with a simple strategy proven to work

Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page in a search engine’s “natural” or un-paid (“organic”) search results. In general, the earlier (or higher ranked on the search results page), and more frequently a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine’s users. SEO may target different kinds of search, including image search, local search, video search, academic search, news search and industry-specific vertical search engines.

As an Internet marketing strategy, SEO considers how search engines work, what people search for, the actual search terms or keywords typed into search engines and which search engines are preferred by their targeted audience. Optimizing a website may involve editing its content, HTML and associated coding to both increase its relevance to specific keywords and to remove barriers to the indexing activities of search engines. Promoting a site to increase the number of backlinks, or inbound links, is another SEO tactic.

Synology launches DSM 4.2 beta


This is a major upgrade from DSM 4.1 that brings improvements for both home and business users at no additional cost. Since DSM has a vast amount of features, the list of improvements is accordingly long. However, some of the major new or improved features include the following:

The Quick Connect features now supports DS audio, DS photo+, and the new DS cloud apps for remote access without the need to configure the router. This makes setting up the server much easier for novice

DSM offers a Web interface that resembles a native GUI of an Linux distribution, both in terms of look and functionality.

  • A mobile app called DS cloud is now available for iOS users to sync files from their mobile device, the way Dropbox works.
  • The server’s Package Center is now revamped to organize applications better. Applications are add-in programs that users can install (or remove) from the server to add more functions and features to it.
  • The Cloud Station is now upgraded to version 2 and allows for nearly unlimited synced accounts and folders. The size limit of syncable files is also increased to 10GB (up from 5GB). This limit is just for individual files; you can sync an unlimited amount of data.
  • The DS video app, which plays back videos stored on the server, is now available for iOS, Android, and Windows phones, and offers support for MKV subtitles.
  • The DS photo+ app can now be set to automatically sync photos from iOS devices.
  • Video Station’s new player allows streaming video to a browser without the need for browser plug-ins
  • Audio Station now supports streaming to Bluetooth speakers


In addition, for business users, DSM 4.2 also includes Synology High Availability (SHA) features for all x86-based models (not just select few), allowing even smaller businesses to minimize the risk of downtime. DSM 4.2 now provides support for Amazon’s Glacier service among its other cloud backup options.

Like the previous update, DSM 4.2 beta is available via download and manual upgrade. When the final version is available, which is in a month or so, users can choose to upgrade to it automatically from within the existing DSM’s user interface.

How to Shut Down Windows 8 In Just One Click

October 28, 2012 1 comment

Where Windows 7 displays its power button in a prominent place on its Start Menu, Windows 8 makes you perform four actions just to turn your computer off. To get to the power button in the new OS, you must pull out the Charms menu, click the Settings charm, click the Power button and then select Shutdown or Restart.

However, there’s an easy way to put the shutdown and restart functions just one click away from the desktop and Start screen. Just create shortcuts for both actions using the following steps:

  1. Navigate to the desktop.
  2. Right click on the desktop and select New -> Shortcut. A shortcut menu appears.
    Create new Shortcut

  3. In the location box, type shutdown /p to shut down Windows 8 immediately or shutdown /r /t 0 to reboot Windows 8 immediately. Click Next to continue.
    Enter Shutdown /s /t 0 in the location box of the create a shortcut window.

  4. Enter a name for the shortcut and click Finish. A new shortcut will appear on your desktop.
    Name your shortcut and click Finish

  5. Right click on the shortcut and select Properties. A dialog box appears.
  6. Click Change Icon under the Shortcut tab then Click Ok in warning box that says shutdown.exe contains no icons.
    Click Change Icon

  7. Select an Icon from the list of available images Click Ok twice (once to close the Change Icon window and once to close Properties window). Your shortcut will now have an icon.
    Choose the Icon for Your Shortcut

  8. Right click the shortcut and select Pin to Start. The shutdown icon will now appear on your Start screen.
    Pin to Start

  9. Drag the shutdown icon to a prominent place on your Start screen. We recommend putting it in the first column to the left so you will always see it.
    Drag your button to a prominent place

  10. Right click the icon and select Pin to Taskbar if you want the shortcut to live on your desktop’s taskbar as well.
    The Shutdown icon can be pinned to taskbar
  11. Repeat the previous steps to create a Restart button. Use the command “shutdown /r /t 0″ in the location field.
