New: Advanced Microsoft Security Info Center on Smokey’s, and other developments also

Dear Reader,

Main targets of Smokey’s Security Forums are providing Support, Help, Advice and Education to the user, this all in the best possible way.
Board’s main territory is Security, however not limited to: Smokey’s is also provided with dedicated General Computer Forums: Hardware, Software, OS’s, Browsers, Tools & Related Topics.

To offer best posssible/up-to-date services to the user, Smokey’s is in a continuous process of evaluation and development. Standstill is equal to deterioration, such can and will damage user’s interests. The board’s aim is NOT to have a huge member amount, more important is to deliver DEDICATED QUALITY instead of uneducated bulk. Quality regarding board’s content, same is valid for staff.

Recent example of board development was the migration to new board software. This was a necessary move, to assure and maintain board’s high aims and standards. With the new board software, Smokey’s is equipped and armed for the future. New services are possible, and existing services can be improved. Remember, again, standstill is equal to deterioration….

Smokey’s is taking full advantage of the new board software. Existing services are improved, and new ones are introduced:

The Advanced Microsoft Security Info Center

This Center provide the user with up-to-date Microsoft Security Bulletins, Advisories, Out of  Band Bulletins and Security Research & Defense straight from the source: Microsoft Corporation.

The Center is devided in following sections:

– Microsoft Security Advisories
– Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC)
– Microsoft Security Research & Defense

All sections are updated with a frequency between 30 and 60 minutes, in this way the user is always up-to-date informed.

HijackThis & OTListIt2 Log Analysis and Malware Removal

Regrettably the internet is overcrowded with people that offer these services without decent training, these amateurs are damaging user’s interest notably.
