  1. CCleaner, the incredibly popular PC maintenance utility, has been hacked to include malware. Here’s how to tell if you were affected, and what you should do. RELATED ARTICLE What Does CCleaner Do, and Should You Use It? The attack was discovered by researchers at Cisco Talos, who found that “the legitimate signed version of CCleaner 5.33. . .also contained a multi-stage malware payload that rode on top of the installation of CCleaner.” CCleaner’s parent company, Piriform (who was recently bought by terrible antivirus company Avast), acknowledged the issue shortly thereafter. Since CCleaner claims to have millions of downloads per week, that is potentially a severe issue. LINK TO SOURCE: https://www.howtogeek.com/326742/ccleaner-was-hacked-what-you-need-to-know/

  9. Just did a re-download of FSUIPC5 from simmarket where I bought it just to verify had all current updates, Just FYI guys: heres the info that cam with: ********************************************************************************************************************************************************** FSUIPC 5.112 changes since 5.11 1. This version supports the same GoFlight devices as FSUIPC4. You need to place the included GFDEV64.DLL into the Modules folder as well as the updated FSUIPC5. Note that this has been fully tested on a limited range of GF devices: pairs of RP48, P8 and T8. If there are any problems with other devices, please lodge details in the FSUIPC Support Forum. 2. A problem with the offset “spoofing” facilities implemented via offset 0024 is fixed. 3. PMDG 737, 747 and 777 offsets are supported as before. A different method is used when requesting these from SimConnect, as the method previously used (the same as the one in FSX and P3D3) can cause very log freezes (85 seconds on m system) during initialisation, just after the sim is “ready to fly”. Note that I’ve not been able to test this here. Feedback on the Forum please. 4. A much longer timeout is used before forcing a SimConnect reconnection when FSUIPC detects that a flight has been saved. This is intended to stop FSUIPC timing out SimConnect and reconnecting whilst add-ons like the PMDG aircraft freeze the sim whilst collecting and saving cockpit systems data. Whether it manages to detect this event before the Sim is frozen or not is not known. There is hope that this change will allow AutoSave to be used with PMDG aircraft and other complex add-ons. Feedback on the Forum please. 5. The PMDG aircraft offset support is now not enabled all the time unless specifically required. The option is controlled by three parameters now added to the [General] section of the FSUIPC5.INI file, thus: PMDG737offsets=Auto PMDG747offsets=Auto PMSG777offsets=Auto The default “Auto” setting makes the offset support start only when the aircraft is loaded. This assumes the text “PMDG” and “7x7” (x as appropriate) are found anywhere in the pathname to the add-on’s AIR file. For all PMDG installations which haven’t been very much user modified this should be the case, but otherwise you can force the support by setting “Yes” instead of “Auto”. To prevent any PMDG offsets support at all, just set these parameters to “No”. This should not be needed except to possibly avoid or diagnose problems. Errors found in the Lua ext library functions (mainly run and shell) are fixed. . 6. Additional offsets are provided for additional weather information provided by the recent versions of Active Sky. These are: 8638 Ambient turbulence at aircraft (0-1000), 32-bit float 863C Exported ambient visibility (metres), 32-bit float (-ve if not supported) 8640 Exported precipitation type (0 none, 1 rain, 2 snow, 3 hail), 8-bit integer (Byte) 8641 Exported precipitation rate (0-4), 8-bit integer (Byte) 8642 In cloud flag (non-zero if aircraft is in cloud), Byte. 7. Details of the nearest airborne and nearest ground AI aircraft are provided in offsets as follows: 9690 Nearest ground aircraft data (24 bytes, see below) 96A8 Nearest airborne aircraft data (24 bytes, see below) Both areas contain data in the following format: Byte Size Content 0 4 32-bit integer identifying the aircraft (FSUIPC type ID) 4 4 Latitude as 32-bit float 8 4 Longitude as 32-bit float 12 4 Altitude as 32-bit float 16 2 Heading as 16-bit integer 18 2 Ground speed as 16-bit integer 20 2 Vertical speed as 16-bit integer 22 2 COM1 frequency (1dd.dd where 0xdddd is the value here) 8. The distances to the nearest ground and airborne aircraft are given in offsets 736C and 736E, respectively. These are 16-bit integers in nautical miles. These are the offsets used by the latest version of TrafficLook. 9. The Installer now creates the P3D4 Modules with full control access by users and program alike, even in the Program Files folders. 10. A problem with the 64-bit conversion of the Lua interpreter is fixed. This could cause P3D4 to crash in obscure circumstances with complex Lua application. 11. The optional Add-Ons menus for Loading flights (“scenarios”) and plans now work. This was an omission in previous releases. 12. The screen display options now make use of the two different SimConnect facilities. Multiline messages (from Lua or via offset 3380) go to the SimConnect Message Window, which is so titled, whilst single line (fixed or scrolling) messages go to the standard title free Message Window. 13. SimConnect Window positions (including Menus) are saved in the INI file and (normally) restored. 14. When a new session is started and before an FSUIPC5.LOG is created, the current log is saved as FSUIPC5_Prev.Log. LINK TO SOURCE:

  15. real-world WinRar Update

    WinRAR - Newsletter 02/2017 Issue: August 14, 2017 Welcome to the 114th edition of the WinRAR Newsletter! You are receiving this newsletter, because you subscribed to it. Instructions on how to unsubscribe are located at the end of this e-mail. Content: WinRAR 5.50 Final version released! Find out about the main improvements! How to get the latest version? WinRAR How To Video Course Survey Join us on Facebook 1. WinRAR 5.50 Final Version released! Find out about the main improvements! RARLAB.com and win.rar GmbH are pleased to present to you the final version of WinRAR 5.50. The result of our continuous development is a multifunctional, user-friendly software with an intuitive interface featuring state-of-the-art options for downsizing, extracting, securing, restoring, fixing, sharing and managing files. In the new version additional features - especially for the password manager - and usability improvements have been added and some minor bugs of previous versions have been fixed. The highlights of the new version are: RAR5 Default Archive format When you archive or share files, you’ll benefit from an outstanding compression ratio along with a fast compression rate to save you space and bandwidth. From version 5.50 on WinRAR and command line RAR use RAR 5.0 archive format by default. You can change it to RAR 4.x compatible format with "RAR4" option in archiving dialog or -ma4 command line switch. This change affects only new, clean installs. If you already have saved RAR format in the default compression profile in previous versions, WinRAR respects these stored settings. Password Manager Improvements In passwords we trust. And with WinRAR’s 256-bit password protection you won’t be having any trust issues. In our latest release the password dialog has been updated, and now there is the possibility to use a master password. You can use the "Set master password" button in "Organize passwords" dialog to encrypt saved password records and protect them from unauthorized access. If the entered password does not match the master password, it is treated as a usual password for archive operations. To permanently save the master password you have to close WinRAR. The new version uses a new data format for the password organizer, so passwords stored in the "Organize passwords" dialog are not readable by older versions. It does not affect archive encryption formats and encrypted archives are compatible with previous WinRAR versions. Organizer data is converted to a new format only when the user save it, but not immediately after installing WinRAR. In addition the usability of decompression dialog of password protected archives has been improved. If a wrong password has been entered when unpacking an encrypted RAR5 archive, WinRAR now proposes to enter a valid password for the same file instead of aborting the extraction. Further security enhancements The security of other compression file formats has also been improved further. From version 5.50 on WinRAR uses AES-256 by default in CTR mode to encrypt ZIP archives as it is significantly more secure than the ZIP 2.0 legacy encryption algorithm. Extraction support for .LZ archives created by Lzip compressor and LZ and ZIPX have also been added to the list of associations in Settings/Integration dialog. A detailed and complete list of all improvements and bug-fixes can be found here: www.win-rar.com/whatsnew.html. 2. How to get the latest version? The new WinRAR 5.50 (32-bit) can be downloaded from here: www.win-rar.com/fileadmin/winrar-versions/winrar/wrar550.exe.
