June 28, 2016 — by steve0


Again we’ve been hard at work to make Pandora FMS work as best we can for you and we’re very proud to present Pandora FMS 6.0 SP3. Although SP2 came out only a few months ago, we felt it was still a little rough around the edges, and we haven’t rested until we felt comfortable with how it would look and perform in this new version. We are now sure that some of the most relevant trouble spots will be fixed and working correctly, and we highly recommend you update and install this new Service Pack.

#teamviewerDown: Safe alternatives for remote desktop management

June 2, 2016 — by steve4


Around March we already had a warning in the form of a newsbreak that someone was infecting devices managed with TeamViewer with ransomware. Now June has just started and we get news of another, more disturbing, incident that is also affecting TeamViewer. The TeamViewer team, following the European tradition of denying everything, blames its users justifying themselves by saying that if users use weak passwords, it’s perfectly normal that they get ripped apart by hackers. The worst part about this is that there already too many users on Reddit denying this excuse and that assure they’re using 22 character, single-use passwords, double authentication and yet still have a stranger moving their PC’s mouse right in front of their puzzled faces.  We’re here today to detail what’s happening, why, and some safer alternatives to this remote control solution.
