Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service service.

Unsolved! Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service service.
So many factors to consider finding the right solution. As of this time, I have mixed of solutions from restoring the profile, un-installing the last programs/applications added to the workstation/laptop, starting using SAFE MODE restarting workstation, installing security service patch, updating anti-virus software, and other possible isolation I can think of.
Some solutions works with other workstation issue with the same error code but not consistent. That's why this is UNSOLVED.

Regin Malware

On November 24, 2014, Symantec released a report on Regin, a sophisticated backdoor Trojan used to conduct intelligence-gathering campaigns. At this time, the Regin campaign has not been identified targeting any organizations within the United States.
Description Regin is a multi-staged, modular threat—meaning it has a number of components, each dependent on others to perform an attack. Each of the five stages is hidden and encrypted, with the exception of the first stage. The modular design poses difficulties to analysis, as all components must be available in order to fully understand the Trojan.
Impact Regin is a remote access Trojan (RAT), able to take control of input devices, capture credentials, monitor network traffic, and gather information on processes and memory utilization. The complex design provides flexibility to actors, as they can load custom features tailored to individual targets. [1]

WordPress on Google Apps Engine

I am moving my website(s) from VPS Server to Google App Engine (Google Cloud). It's too early to list the benefits of using Google Cloud while still building my infrastructure and making it work the way it suppose to.

A little background of the existing hosting environment.
I'm using a dedicated VPS Server with Solid State and 6.5GB Memory to host a multisites using WordPress for Content Management Systems (CMS).

The VPS Server is only hosting the WordPress files e.g. CMS core files, themes, plugins, etc.
I am using Amazon RDS for database so I don't have to worry about managing database server.
And I'm using Amazon CloudFront for images storage.

Current issues.
When it gets busy, the website(s) response time spike from an average of 1.5msecs to 8-10msecs.My current hosting provider can't see what's going on. I will use the Quick Start WordPress for Google App Engine simple tutorial. Here's the link if you're interested or continue to read my adventure. ht…

Web encryption vulnerability opens encrypted data to hackers

Turns out that the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption we’ve relied on for secure communication on the Internet has a vulnerability.

The exploit first allows attackers to initiate a “downgrade dance” that tells the client that the server doesn’t support the more secure TLS (Transport Layer Security) protocol and forces it to connect via SSL 3.0. From there a man-in-the-middle attack can decrypt secure HTTP cookies. Google calls this the POODLE (Padding Oracle On Downgraded Legacy Encryption) attack.

To save you some time, here's how I do it using Microsoft Office 365 for my SMTP in our office.

First you need the following information:
IP Address of your Printer, Subnet Mask, Gateway and DNS servers. You need it for networking purpose, ask your Administrator for this information. If you're reading this article, you might be the Administrator :).

Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.2.2
DNS1: 192.168.2.3
DNS2: 192.168.2.3

Keep your Internet Explorer up to date.

If you are using Microsoft Office 365 online services, you need to keep your Internet Explorer up to date. I highly recommend doing it to minimize risk of exposure. The cyber space is an open network, where everybody is using it for almost everything from email, shopping, chat, etc., and some malicious users lurking to find their next victim.

 I received an notice from Microsoft 365 message center.
Beginning January 12, 2016, only the most recent version of Internet Explorer available for a supported operating system will receive technical support and security updates. We will work to update and clarify our Office 365 system requirements soon, and communicate this to you via Message Center. I hope this help minimize risk of vulnerabilities by keeping your system up to date. Share your thoughts.

No Ads for Google Aps

I am one of the early beta tester for Gmail and Google Apps for Domain. You probably have your own email address using @gmail.com or Google Apps. I have both for personal and business use.

Google Apps for Business (formerly known as Google Apps for Free, Standard and Premium) is a service provided to business owners to use their own domain name. For example, CEO @ KING.NET, President @ KING.NET, LebronJames @ KING.NET, PrinceSaud @ KING.NET, and others.

Gmail is now part of Google Apps for Business where you can use other work tools for your business. In early stage of Gmail, you can get a Google Apps Standard (no longer available). It is now a Google Apps
for Business.

Do you remember your first experience on the Internet? Where .COM was most likely the three magic letters in a URL to the right of the dot, called a domain? Chances are, it's still the most common domain you'll see.

Well, today is an epic day in Internet history. We are no longer limited in our domain extension choices because it is the official public launch of new TLDs. Right now, seven domains are available to anyone (on a first come, first served basis), and many more are coming soon.

Before all the good names are taken (again), register a new web address with a fun, new twist and shows what you’re all about. These new domains might be perfect for you, especially if you are a(n):
Bike store or biking enthusiast. Pedal ahead of the online crowd with a .BIKE web address.Designer or sell clothing. Dress up your site with .CLOTHING.Expert on anything.

For example, instead of sharing my official bitcoin wallet 1GwRqfKGMBG2VCuqNqp71cZk5zfPku88Yj, I now have to remember this new sub-domain name or the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) URL Address of https://credit.bitcoinwallet.com web page that contains all my bitcoin public information.

Disclaimer. I used my "real" https://credit.bitcoinwallet.com virtual wallet web page.

It just under two months of exchanging the domain name ownership and it's now live. Hats off to the management of Bitcoin Wallet. Go visit BitcoinWallet.com and create your own bitcoin address.

Yesterday, I received an email notifying me that "A good change is on the way".

Here's the email notification from Microsoft.

"In the coming weeks you'll notice a change happening. SkyDrive will become OneDrive, an even better place to store and share your favorite things across all of your favorite devices. But don't worry, during this transition you'll still be able to access all of your photos, videos, documents, and files. OneDrive. It's everything you love about SkyDrive and more. And it's coming soon."

By the way, I have SkyDrive (or OneDrive) and Google Drive for online storage services.
How about you, what online storage services you prefer to use? Care to share?

"There are 1900+ new top level domain (TLD) extensions to go live this year that will change the world uses the web. People will have the option of choosing memorable and intuitive domain names specific to their ventures. New TLDs help consumers know what to expect from the websites they visit, or making it easier to find sites relevant to them." from Company.Guru website.

It's a new opportunity, new business for us. But I also believe that domains are not created equal, some will fail but some will succeed. In every small business, budget is always tight so keep it under control.

I launched Company.Guru for marketing our services yesterday, received a few registrations already. Nice return of investment for a marketing page. If you registered a .GURU through NeedName.com let me now so I can add your link to the Company.Guru advertising page.
