    Is your browser safe against tracking?
    When you visit a website, online trackers and the site itself may be able to identify you – even if you’ve installed software to protect yourself. It’s possible to configure your browser to thwart tracking, but many people don’t know how.

    Panopticlick will analyze how well your browser and add-ons protect you against online tracking techniques. We’ll also see if your system is uniquely configured—and thus identifiable—even if you are using privacy-protective software. However, we only do so with your explicit consent, through the TEST ME button below.

    [ Deutsch ] Security researchers have encountered a massive data leak at the French company NextMotion, a technology company for plastic surgery. A compromised database contained 100,000 profile pictures and personal (as well as intimate) data from patients who underwent cosmetic surgery on surgeons. I received the information directly from vpnmentor. NextMotion has confirmed the data leak.

    [ Deutsch ] As of February 11, 2020, Intel published several product security vulnerabilities in the Product Security Center. This ranges from the Intel® RAID Web Console 3 (RWC3) for Windows to USB drivers. There will be no more updates for some products, which Intel has now discontinued.

    [ Deutsch ] If someone uses Symantec Endpoint Protection on their Windows clients, the antivirus solution should be updated quickly. Because older versions have security gaps.

    Windows, Linux Devices at Risk Due to Unsigned Peripheral Firmware

    - Researchers have discovered multiple instances of unsigned firmware in computer peripherals that can be used by malicious actors to attack laptops and servers running Windows and Linux.

    - This is a big problem since millions of such devices are directly exposed to attacks designed to abuse this flaw to harvest and exfiltrate the users' sensitive information, to trigger denial-of-service states, and infect them with various malware strains such as ransomware.

    Hey. Where'd you get that USB camera?!?

    Three vulnerabilities in Sophos/Cyberoam firewall technology
    Posted on 2020-02-29 by guenni
    [​IMG]
    [German]Security researchers have discovered three vulnerabilities in Cyberoam firewalls (owned by British company Sophos). The vulnerabilities leave millions of devices and, in principle, the entire network vulnerable to security attacks. The products are used in corporate networks and are accessible via the Internet (sometimes with standard credentials). Currently there seems to be no firmware update available. Here I present some information that I received from security researchers of vpnMentor regarding this issue.

    Samsung have released new Samsung NVMe Driver v3.3

    But you'll get it at Guru3.com

    That's so strange that Samsung has a limit on downloads, I've hit it before myself, it reminds me of the old "slashdoted" effect when people's personal webpages were linked and a million hits blows their quota in no time. :)

    I got my copy just now... IDK what the rules are here for hosting or uploading software, perhaps you could find out and maybe have a copy here for NBR members to grab? Its only about 75MB, but that's well past 2MB limit... what about a software archive for NBR members?

    I think the driver will be aviable on several places within short time. Even on Samsung download page.

    Also normally hosted here... Recommended AHCI/RAID and NVMe Drivers Win-Raid.com

    Direct download link Samsung NVMe Driver Installer Set v3.3.0.2003 for Win7-10

    Tip for users with a non-Samsung NVMe SSD:
    According to my own experiences the original 32/64bit Samsung NVMe drivers for Win10 are a very good and extremely performant alternative to the generic MS in-box NVMe driver.
    The driver update for the NVMe Controller has to be forced by hitting the "Have Disk" button. The popup warning regarding the missing compatibility usually can be disregarded. Nevertheless I strongly recommend to set a "Restore Point" before doing it.

    Some reading for you...

    https://www.touslesdrivers.com/index.php?v_page=3&v_code=7671
    "With each publication of a new file for SSD (Magician, firmware, driver ...), Samsung takes infinite precautions and imposes during the first week a maximum number of daily downloads which allows in case of concern with this update day to affect only a limited number of users. The Korean manufacturer has implemented this procedure since 2015 when new firmware had caused the failure of many SSD SATA 850 PRO just updated."
