HandBrake 1 month 19 hours ago mvalburg

Started using Handbrake a while ago, now discovering that sometimes it doesn't rip/encode the whole disk (got to within 10 minutes of the end of a movie only to have it END!). Also, built a new computer and upgraded (finally) to Win10: Handbrake has install problems: it appears to install (appears on the installed programs list) but there's no icon, and the executable is nowhere to be found. If I instead download the .zip install folder, I can start it but it crashes immediately. Not a hopeful start, and with prematurely ended rips, not sure why I was installing it in the first place. Moving on.

How to Customize the Windows Command Prompt 1 month 1 day ago Nodrog

If you want your chosen layout to stick you need to uncheck the "Let the system position window" option, and if you want your customisation to apply to all console windows (Command and PowerShell, standard and elevated) you need to make the changes in the defaults rather than properties section.

A quick way to change and set the layout is to first drag/resize the window to suit then go into the properties>layout tab and note down the new values there then go into defaults>layout and set these same values.

Yes. The majority of computer readers these are blasé about security risks. They don’t read security articles. Attention spans have reduced, and all that matters is that you have a good selfie

To inform people, you just need one sentence at the end of reviews:

For software, we need to state that the program has been screened for malware

For photo upload sites, we need to remind people that the Privacy policy may allow developers to onsell your photos, so strip your photo metadata first (and provide the link how to do this)

As I’ve said to Rhiannon, it’s better to find utilities to perform tasks, rather than uploading your data to anonymous websites. Instead we normalise this behaviour

Tech support should always keep people informed, otherwise it becomes part of the problem

Photo privacy - what no one actually tells you

https://www.consumerreports.org/privacy/what-can-you-tell-from-photo-exif-data/

Thanks. Proves my point that we are way to permissive with the sharing of our photos. Metadata can track the address the photo was taken !
Techsupportalert was based on providing people with software info that is screened to be safe

Can we not be recommending any more website uploading services that request photos or documents, without making clear the associated risks

So if you recommend a photo upload site, please recommend that personal photos be first stripped of their metadata
This is basic information in 2019

Gizmo’s Freeware always tries to safeguard the interests of members and visitors including download advisory notices for some software but there is a limit to adopting a nanny type of presentation.

Pretty much everything you do in life has security and privacy risks especially using Windows and yet here we are as predominantly a Windows resource site. Also, for years we have published a series of security related articles including the one linked below yet the readership numbers for these are insignificant compared with Best Free Live Wallpapers which pretty much sums up user preferences.

https://www.techsupportalert.com/content/how-stay-safe-while-online.htm

The same applies to Windows security software where 95% of all users never bother to read the vendor’s documentation and thus end up with an incorrectly configured system churning out results they can't understand and most likely ignore.

In all honesty therefore it is the responsibility of computer and web users to educate themselves about best safe practices because there’s a limit to how much sites like ours can help. MC - Site Manager.

What information is stored in a smartphone photo’s metadata?

view
A Free Image Hosting Service and A Great Resource of Funny GIFs for Everyone 1 month 1 week ago ehorwitz1

And don't forget that, unless you've deleted it, photographs often include GPS data along with time and date stamps. For the average person that probably doesn't mean much, but for those with massive data harvesting and analysis capabilities (Google, etc.) it means being able to know your exact location at a specific time and date. And beyond that, to extrapolate your travels if enough information is available.

No, I'm not really that paranoid. But the data is there along with the capability to analyze it, should someone want to.

The great thing about Techsupportalert is that when discussing computer software, reviewers always mention that software has been scanned and it doesn’t contain malware. In other words it probably functions as you expect without uploading data back to developers or coinstalls bad code

Unfortunately when it comes to online sites that upload your personal data (and photos are very personal data) there is no similar warning about how our photos potentially are being used. Online sites in my opinion pose an equal risk as installed software and malware

We have already learned that many sites are harvesting peoples facial photos and selling them to companies that are creating facial recognition software for government, policing and commercial uses.

It’s time we stop uploading our photos to anonymous websites. We have become so permissive to this practice
Even Facebook and Instagram are probably harvesting people’s photos for this reason

In 2019 you would be crazy to be giving strangers your most personal data. Yet everyone does it and we encourage people to do so

I have used Speccy for years. Today I noticed it hasn't been updated since 2018 AND the portable version is no longer available from the site. Piriform was purchased by Avast. I suspect that may have something to do with it. All the tool downloads are now on CCleaner.com. (Forums still on piriform.com.) I swear it does not give as much info as it used to? It still gives some good info but I think I will try HWInfo instead of Speccy. (Note the company's CCLeaner still seems good at least for now.)

This is just one extract from their Privacy Policy.

“None of this information is “personal data” – that is, data we could use to identify a specific person. Some of this information could, however, become personal data because we provide automatically collected anonymous data to third party advertisers to supplement the tracking information described below, and those third parties might be able to combine our anonymous data with other data they have to enable them to identify people.”

Basically this absolves them from everything and anything even when you understand that how privacy rules are implemented varies between countries.

In reality anything you post online is likely to be used by individuals or companies should they attach value to it for their own ends and the only way to prevent this is not to post it. It doesn’t matter how many rules are broken when the servers in question are based in the Ukraine or Vietnam. :)

Controversial Advertising Program Now Being Embedded in More Software 1 month 2 weeks ago system.addict

With many computer users being moderately aware of the way that malware/hacks work, but even more so - worried about the consequences of infection, this article was well worded in terms of highlighting the dangers of exploitation. If the packet were to be retained in a file locally or if the receiving domain could be hacked/spoofed either server side or in the download - this could ramp up the number of initial targets by denoting vulnerable systems per the outdated applications. Even if you're a paranoid bugger, manually deciding on each and every packet that passes through your firewall - if you expected OC to interact with the web or even just explorer - you could have your vulnerabilities in a nice little bundle waiting for someone to figure out how to scoop up.

Agreed MC. :)
Pothos is not the site I wrote up, however, I did visit all the listings offered on Pothos and ran the site through VirusTotal and it came up clean. That's one of the things I normally do before I write anything up - there's a lot of checking, testing, double checking, and research that goes into what I post, it's not quick or casual. For example, I tested every one of the 55 tools on Mara photos to make sure each worked and did what it said it did and to make sure there were no image quality issues that I could detect. With that said, I still miss things sometimes, and I'm grateful for the people who point out the errors. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
There's also quite a few programs and sites that don't make it all the way through testing for one reason or another.

I didn't download or test either of the programs that were listed on Pothos (Red Button and Christmas Elf).

Of all the confusing commercial security software folks insist on paying for Malwarebytes tops the list.

What an excellent find Rhiannon. Probably in the top 5 Hot Finds in the last 5 years

What I like?
Free, so far !
Simple right click option
Effective and fast, with instant results for single files
A Windows utility; rather than an upload service which grabs your personal photos, and can be shut down at any time
Probably a utility I would be using every week

The homepage feedback does suggest doing a backup of your original photos, and rotate a copy of your collection, in case of corruption

Rhiannon, I salute you ! Keep up the great work !

I've updated the article to include the error message appearing only in Firefox. As MC says, I assumed that the site cetificate wasn't renewed or there was another benign error since virustotal didn't flag it and no other browsers gave a warning of any kind. The site is safe as far as I have been able to determine. As always, use your own best judgement whether to proceed or not.
I'll add that Firefox has repeatedly flagged sites that I've been visiting for years, indicating they are so dangerous Firefox would not let me add an exception and proceed to the site. I had to use other browsers to visit the site (none of which displayed an error message and which virustotal rated as safe). If Firefox throws a security warning I automatically assume it's an error on Mozilla's end, though I visit the site using a few other browsers and virustotal to be sure.¯\_(ツ)_/¯
