Microsoft's FolderShare Meets The Trash
Reliability is often cited by Microsoft supporters as a defining feature of Microsoft software. One can almost see them reddening through the egg on their faces, with the news that Microsoft's file-syncing software Foldershare has been sharing user's files with the recycle bin.
FolderShare is supposed to help users sync files across multiple computers, much like Unison or rsync. According to Microsoft, however, instead of syncing files, FolderShare has been deleting files that contained special characters. Apparently, the problem began on December 3rd and was fixed by the 6th, but Microsoft wants to make sure that affected users know not to empty their trash, because there might just be something important in there.

In modern computer systems, privacy and security are mandatory. However, connections from the outside over public networks automatically imply risks. One easily available solution to avoid eavesdroppers’ attempts is SSH. But, its wide adoption during the past 21 years has made it a target for attackers, so hardening your system properly is a must.
Additionally, in highly regulated markets, you must comply with specific operational requirements, proving that you conform to standards and even that you have included new mandatory authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication. In this ebook, I discuss SSH and how to configure and manage it to guarantee that your network is safe, your data is secure and that you comply with relevant regulations.Get the Guide
