Lunarpages Security Center / Re: Is an email redirect less secure as a login?
« Last post by MrPhil on September 12, 2017, 05:16:55 AM »
I'm not sure I've heard of this method before. I can't tell if you're directly signing on with some special email address as an ID, or an email is received by certain websites and logs you in that way (or authorizes you to log in for a short period of time). Could you provide a link to a description of the steps involved?

Regarding security levels, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Any unencrypted email could be intercepted and read, and then spoofed. Email addresses are out in the open (not encrypted). Without understanding more about how this login system is supposed to work, I can't say anything more than that.

Add: Some websites hash the password in Javascript, at the browser, and send that to the server. It avoids sending the password in the clear, but the hashed password could still be intercepted and read (and later spoofed), so I'm not sure it's much of an improvement. Perhaps if the server also sent a hash "salt" as part of the sign-on panel, that could then be a unique password per session (of course, this means storing the password clear text on the server, so it can be rehashed each time, which is its own security complication). Then, a password over an SSL-encrypted link would be far more secure than a clear text password over non-SSL. More and more sites are over SSL now (or at least, sensitive information such as logins), so that should help.

Lunarpages Security Center / Re: Free Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware Programs

I think the main problem is that one AV may see another AV's virus signature file as a threat, and attack it as being full of viruses. One AV may also detect activity to read (or clean/quarantine) an infected file as suspicious, and block it. So, it is certainly possible to have one AV interfering with the activities of another. If you disable WD to run the other AV, it's possible that parts of WD may be damaged by the other AV. Can you back up all the WD files first, so they can be restored if necessary?

Lunarpages Security Center / Is an email redirect less secure as a login?
« Last post by pgoso on September 11, 2017, 06:41:15 PM »
Currently I use an email address from LP which is redirected to an encrypted email to login to important websites.  I like being able to quickly change where my emails go if I have to. I'm not sure about the security level with this though? Is the security level any different than if I used my actual encrypted email address?

Thanks

I've heard many times that it's bad to run more than one antivirus at the same time. I'm currently using Windows Defender which I heard is nothing special. If I just disabled Windows Defender to try another antivirus, would that be ok? Or would Windows Defender have to be completely removed?

Thanks

Hosting Server Bulletins / BOWDI Planned Move - 8th September 2017
« Last post by Jassi on September 07, 2017, 11:24:04 PM »
Dear Customer,

BOWDI will begin a planned move to a new server on 8th September 2017. This move is required in order to upgrade the serverís operating system from CentOS 5, which has been phased out for support, to CentOS 7.x. The exact time and date for the switch to the new hardware will be announced through the 'Network Status' section of your https://account.lunarpages.com account at least 24 hours in advance. You will experience no downtime during this process. We suggest you make no significant changes to your site after you receive the announcement.

We will also be updating MySQL 5.6, Apache 2.4 and PHP to the latest stable releases from their respective release trees. In addition to PHP 5.6, we will also provide PHP 7.x using the latest EasyApache installation from cPanel.

We have backups on hand for all databases in the event of any issues with the upgrade process. For more details on MySQL and specifically MySQL 5.6 series, please review the changelog at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/relnotes/mysql/5.6/en/index.html.

Please note that you may check the current status for this server at any time in CAP via https://account.lunarpages.com/ with your cPanel username and password, then by clicking the Network Status icon. Additionally, the move will result in completely giving up on FrontPage extensions, which are now deprecated and have been replaced with WebDAV.

Thank you for your patience and we apologize for any inconvenience in the interim. If you have any issues with your site, please contact support@lunarpages.com

Search Engine Optimization / Re: what is Deep link?
« Last post by albertocosta on September 07, 2017, 02:52:12 AM »
Deep Link is the use of hyperlink that link to a specific piece of a web content on a website. The URL contains all the information needed to point to a particular item.

The computer is off when no one is in that office but Outlook is configured to check for mail automatically every few minutes when the computer is on.  Even when Outlook is told to check for new mail manually the new stuff doesn't show up for a few days even though the new mail is available through the web interface..

I don't use Outlook, but can think of a couple obvious things to check. Is the PC in question continuously "on" and connected to the Internet, or is it off most of the time? Especially if it's often off, how often is Outlook configured to check in with its mail server and see what's there? If you manually order Outlook to fetch its mail (I presume that can be done), does it all show up immediately? Is the Internet connection very slow or unreliable?
