If you are looking to remove the server header from your IIS, you will need to install URL Scan to be able to go through the settings.
UrlScan is a security tool used to restrict types of HTTP requests that IIS will process. It is a simple tool which is very helpful in blocking harmful requests to the server. It seemingly supports only IIS 5.1, IIS 6.0, and IIS 7.0 on Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008. It has been deprecated since IIS 7.5 and IIS 8. It is said that Microsoft has included the features of UrlScan in request filtering option for IIS 7.5 and IIS 8. But it definitely is not a match for the simplicity of UrlScan. Today I am going to show you how to configure UrlScan in IIS 7.5 and IIS8. (IIS 7.5 is available in Windows server 2008 R2 and IIS 8 is available in Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 ).
Install the URLScan in your machine. Please follow the following link for that
When you are trying to install it on a new server, you might get an error saying:
IIS Metabase is required to install Microsoft UrlScan Filter v3.1
To fix this issue:
Open Web Platform Installer
Search for metabase and install “IIS: IIS 6 Metabase Compatibility”
Then, select IIS ISAPI Filters. (ISAPI filters may already be installed in IIS 7.5 )
Click on Install. You are shown a review of components you selected to install. Click on I accept.
The components are installed and will show you a Finish screen. Click on Finish.
To check installation, go in IIS and click on your server node.
Click on ISAPI filters under IIS
After installing URLScan, open the URLScan.ini file typically located in the %WINDIR%\System32\Inetsrv\URLscan folder. After opening it, search for the key RemoveServerHeader . By default it is set to 0, but to remove the Server header, change the value to 1.
Doing so will remove the Server header Server: Microsoft-IIS/7.5 (8) from the User mode response.
When developing integrations with external services (REST, SOAP), there is often the need to use specific SSL protocols, namely:
While trying to use those API’s in OutSystems applications, such attempts to integrate may not work, and produce errors like:
The request was aborted: Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel.
Unsupported procotol. You need to enable TLS X.X to use this API
(other types of errors may occur, related to the required SSL protocols)
TLS 1.0 is no longer secure. Exploits exist to downgrade a connection based on TLS 1.0 to an older version of the protocol. There is no active exploit affecting all of TLS 1.1, but the downgrade attack works on some versions and installations and academically speaking, TLS 1.1’s hash functions are under threat.
If using an older SSL/TLS protocol revision you could have someone sitting on the line and taking in your data while absolutely nothing about the connection indicated it. A compromised secure connection is no different from an insecure connection, but may give a false sense of security.
The revision and deprecation of protocols is an expected, occasional thing, as encryption techniques improve and processing speeds increase over time. This deprecation and notice is for our customers’ security. Anyone keeping up with the latest developments will already be secure, but those who have not kept up to date could end up using an insecure method.
What is TLS?
Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a protocol that ensures privacy between communicating applications and their users on the Internet. When a server and client communicate, TLS ensures that no third-party may eavesdrop or tamper with any message. TLS is the successor to the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).
TLS 1.1 uses a combination of SHA-1 and MD5 by default, whereas TLS 1.2 uses SHA-256. Academically speaking, an attack on TLS 1.1 is sitting somewhere between “will be plausible in a few years” to “actively in-use by nation states.”
Most of you only know that TelNet is a Port ( Port 23 ) or that TelNet is a Remote Control Tool. Remote Control means in this aspect that you as Client can get a Connection to for example a TelNet Server and then you can write Commands in a derivative of a Shell and this commands are executed only on this server not on your machine. But I want to show all you guys how to use this simple Remote Control Tool in several ways, because this simpleness is brilliant. Continue reading “How to use Telnet”→

I am asked at least 5 or more times a day by young, beginning “hackers”, “How can I hack?” or “Is there a way to hack a web site?” Well there is. There are, in fact, literally hundreds of ways to do this. I will discuss a few in this text to get you started. Every hacker has to start somehow and hacking web servers and ftp servers is one of the easiest ways.
Hiya all, it’s been a while since I had the opportunity to laugh at a scam so nicely done

What is CSP?
For a true in-depth look into CSP, I highly recommend reading Mozilla‘s documentation on the subject. It really is the best resource on the web. I will assume that you’ve read the documentation and will be going through a few examples below.
Content Security Policy or CSP is a great new HTTP header that controls where a web browser is allowed to load content from and the type of content it is allowed to load. It uses a white-list of allowed content and blocks anything not in the allowed list. It gives us very fine grained control and allows us to run our site in a sandbox in the users browser.
CSP is all about adding an extra layer of security to your site using a Defence in Depth strategy.
The idea behind the defense in depth approach is to defend a system against any particular attack using several independent methods
Netflix announced a few months back that subscribers will be able to download select movies and TV shows for offline playback. The feature had been requested by users for a long time, and it’s reportedly been in the works since June. Now, anyone with a Netflix subscription can download movies and TV shows to watch when they’re not connected to the internet.
How to start downloading movies
You can only download Netflix videos using the iOS or Android app. Netflix requires users to have the iOS 8.0 or later and Android 4.4.2 or later, in addition to having the latest version of the app. Downloading videos will consume about as much data as streaming, so if you plan on saving a bunch of videos, we’d recommend connecting to a reliable WiFi connection to prevent any unexpected mobile data charges.
Where c: is your system drive and Username gets replaced with the user you are logged in with.
Once you navigate to the above directory, you will see all downloaded movies and TV shows. Netflix doesn’t use descriptive names for downloaded contents, so you cannot identify them. However, the size of the file might give you some clue. The biggest catch is that these contents cannot be opened with media players like VLC or GOM Player.
According to a Netflix spokesperson,
“The downloads can only be viewed within the Netflix mobile app; they aren’t like videos you download from the internet and store to your device.” It’s safe to say this is a digital rights management (DRM) scheme to protect the copyrights of videos being offered.
Please bear in mind that Netflix app will not recognize or play contents if you rename or change the files. So, don’t try to rename downloaded Netflix contents.
The whole reason this entire concept of the offline storage and playback took THIS long to implement is Netflix had to spend years finding out every possible way this kind of functionality could and more than likely would be exploited for people to steal the media content and then re-distribute it aka pirate it. The system they’ve created now that’s rolling out is pretty damned bulletproof from every research report I’ve read about it so far and they spent almost 8 months in a beta program asking people to hack the hell out of it and rip ’em off for that content and so far as I’m aware nobody was ever successful in their attempts and I’m pretty certain some very talented coders/developers and “hackers” went to work on that system with nothing positive for all their efforts.
Sure, it’s entirely possible someone might find a particular exploit that could potentially make it a snap or even a click or two to decrypt and break the DRM on the local content once it’s downloaded – we already know Netflix streams can be captured, so even with all the time and expense put into this new functionality it could eventually get itself cracked pretty fast, or never, that remains to be seen.
