ECN News 2009-10-11: Gone inactive again, and I suspect this won't change again. If anyone is interested in taking over the database (stripped of personal information) please let us know and I'll be happy to provide a forwarding link). 2008-05-04: After a few years of inactivity we're actively processing submissions again Introduction This page was set up to make people aware of a problem surrounding the implementation of ECN (Explicit Congestion Notification) where communication between hosts using ECN and hosts which behave badly is completely cut off. ECN is a new development in the TCP/IP protocol suite which will help reduce congestion over heavily-loaded links, and so improve the running of the Internet. In short, "Products which (a) do not support ECN and (b) do not properly ignore ECN bits, are considered non-compliant."

National Vulnerability Database Home Virus Bulletin : Independent Malware Advice How To Change a Windows 2000 User's Password Through LDAP You can set a Windows 2000 user's password through the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) given certain restrictions. This article describes how to set or change the password attribute. The password is stored in the Active Directory on a user object in the unicodePwd attribute. This attribute can be written under restricted conditions, but it cannot be read. The attribute can only be modified; it cannot be added on object creation or queried by a search. The syntax of the unicodePwd attribute is octet-string; however, the directory service expects that the octet-string will contain a UNICODE string (as the name of the attribute indicates). There are two possible ways to modify the unicodePwd attribute. The second way to modify this attribute is analogous to an administrator resetting a password for a user. The following two functions provide examples of these operations:

National Vulnerability Database CVSS Scoring This page shows the components of the CVSS score for example and allows you to refine the CVSS base score. Please read the CVSS standards guide to fully understand how to score CVSS vulnerabilities and to interpret CVSS scores. The scores are computed in sequence such that the Base Score is used to calculate the Temporal Score and the Temporal Score is used to calculate the Environmental Score. Alert: Environmental Modified Impact CVSS Base Score Undefined Impact Subscore Exploitability Subscore CVSS Temporal Score Not Defined CVSS Environmental Score Modified Impact Subscore Overall CVSS Score CVSS v2 Vector Not Defined Base Score Metrics The base metric group captures the characteristics of a vulnerability that are constant with time and across user environments. Exploitability Metrics Access Vector (AV) This metric reflects how the vulnerability is exploited. Local (AV:L) Adjacent Network (AV:A) Network (AV:N) Access Complexity (AC) High (AC:H) Specialized access conditions exist. Medium (AC:M) Low (AC:L)

Professional Security Testers resources warehouse Mike Holt Tracing EMFs in Building Wiring and Grounding, by Karl Riley, 133p, many illustrations, MSI, 1995, $28.00 Rt. 1, Box 361A, Edgartown MA 02539 Phone: (508) 627-4719 Email: Chapter on EMF and Wiring for Mike Holt’s book By Karl Riley I am often asked to recommend an electrician who is able to trace and correct wiring errors which are creating high magnetic fields in a building. Symptoms of 60 Hz EMI What causes clients to know they have a magnetic field problem? For residences the reason I am called in is often that the client has gotten hold of a gaussmeter (which measures AC magnetic field strength in milligauss – mG) and has obtained readings which are alarming based on the ongoing epidemiological research which shows a statistical link to some diseases like childhood leukemia, certain brain tumors, and Alzheimer’s disease at the 4 mG level. Magnetic fields due to wiring errors What kinds of errors create these fields? Grounding the neutral in dryers and ranges
