【病毒】IM蠕蟲威脅飆高 60%會關閉防毒軟體

根據資訊安全組織公佈的資料顯示,今年10月所發現的IM安全威脅是去年同期的15倍以上,而且有60%蠕蟲具有關閉防毒軟體的功能。

IMlogic Threat Center是專門偵測全世界IM(Instant messenger,即時傳訊)安全威脅的產業組織。該機構所公佈的最新報告顯示,2005年10月份內偵測到的安全威脅較去年(2004)同期增加1500%以上,而且比2005年9月份增加30%以上。

而且IM蠕蟲也有越來越惡毒的趨勢,10月間所偵測到的有60%具有關閉現有桌上型安全軟體的功能,試圖要破壞防毒軟體的掃毒及防護能力。

10月間IMlogic所偵測到的安全威脅中有87%屬蠕蟲,12%為病毒,只有1%屬用戶端的漏洞。

其中MSN及AOL則是兩大攻擊目標。10月間有66%針對AOL而來,33%針對MSN,Yahoo只有1%。然而,在此之前,2005年裡鎖定MSN的高達62%,AOL為31%,雅虎為7%。

AOL在十月底時剛好爆發W32/Sdbot-ADD木馬攻擊。這也是rootkit首度與IM蠕蟲結合。

IMlogic的報告還顯示出,幾乎所有的攻擊都是利用所謂的「社交工程」(social engineering),比例高達99%。這種方法最常見的,例如以動人的訴求吸引使用者點選IM裡的連結或附件。

IMlogic在新聞稿中呼籲企業,應該採用多層式防護(layered defense)來避免IM安全威脅。IMlogic指出,由於IM網路的即時性以及IM威脅的快速增加,再加上IM惡意程式會關閉防毒功能,因此單靠傳統桌上型電腦防毒軟體以病毒定義檔來偵測與控制病毒的方式,不足以在IM網路上保護企業安全。

IMlogic技術長Jon Sakoda表示,會關閉防毒功能的IM攻擊提醒企業,必需要有更進一步的安全防護。

【Mac】Airport Update 2005-001


蘋果電腦在網站上貼出了 AirPort Update 2005-001 升級套件。根據說明文件的解說,這次的韌體升級主要是解決了 Airport Express 與 Airport Extreme 對於市面上某些 802.11 無線網卡在 Mac OS X 10.4.3 下的問題,並提高了某些廠牌之基地台與 Airport 系列產品在對連時的相容性。

目前使用者可以透過系統軟體升級功能,或者是直接前往蘋果技術支援網站去下載這個升級套件回來進行安裝。

【Mac】Mac OS X 10.4.3 Update


About the Mac OS X 10.4.3 Update (Delta)

The Mac OS X 10.4.3 Update (Delta) updates Mac OS X 10.4.2 to version 10.4.3. (If you are updating from Mac OS X 10.4 or 10.4.1 to 10.4.3, see this article instead.)

Important: Please read before installing.

* You may experience unexpected results if you have third-party system software modifications installed, or if you've modified the operating system through other means. (This does not apply to normal application software installation.)
* The installation process should not be interrupted. If a power outage or other interruption occurs during installation, use the standalone installer (see below) from Apple Downloads to update.
* If issues occur during installation—for example, Software Update quits unexpectedly—please see this article.

Installation

You have two ways to update to Mac OS X 10.4.3: Use Software Update or the standalone installer. You only need to use one of these methods to update your computer.
Automatic Software Update
Software Update, located in System Preferences, can automatically download the latest Apple software. (Software Update might have linked you to this article to learn more about the update.)

Software Update notes:

* The update's size may vary from computer to computer when installed using Software Update.
* Because some updates are prerequisites for others, you may need to run Software Update more than once to get all available updates.

Standalone installer
Two versions of the installer (Delta and Combo, described below) are available from Apple Downloads as standalone updates. After you download an update, you can use it to update your computer without being connected to the Internet.

*

The Delta Update installer (described here) updates Mac OS X 10.4.2 to 10.4.3.
* The Combo Update installer (described in this article) updates Mac OS X 10.4, 10.4.1, or 10.4.2 to 10.4.3 .

The standalone installer, particularly the Combo Update, is useful if you have multiple computers to update and only want to download the update once.

【網路】國內網頁與Firefox相容度高

策會近日發表Mozilla/Firefox on Windows可應用度測試報告指出,在Windows平台上使用Firefox瀏覽器開啟常用網頁的相容性約已高達九成。

推廣國內自由軟體應用市場,資策會近日執行自由軟體Mozilla/Firefox瀏覽器在Windows作業系統上的可應用度測試,其調查結果指出,Firefox在Windows作業系統下的可用度測試記錄中,有86%的應用功能屬優良,對一般使用者而言可正常操作無礙。

Mozilla/Firefox on Windows可應用度測試報告係資策會委由國內軟體廠商翔威國際執行,針對國內網頁以Firefox之可用度為主要訴求,測試範圍包括整體美感、使用滿意度、易瞭解性、易學習性等非功能性(non-Functional)因素考量,以及如文字、圖像、影音等網頁組件之中英文呈現(layout)、輸出輸入、資料暨網路存取效率、復原(recovery)等基本應用感受。

此一測試報告中所選用之案例,係來自資策會MIC所統計國內最常用之20個網站為測試案例,再搭配兩種微軟Windows作業系統平台,Windows 2000及Windows XP,共得800個測試紀錄以供評估分析。

其中包括政府宣導類網站,如電子化政府入口網站、國家圖書館全球資訊網、經濟部工業局、行政院主計處、台北市政府、行政院;商業應用類網站,如雅虎奇摩、PCHome網路家庭、中華電信Hinet、Google、eBay、聯合新聞網、中時電子報、東森新聞網、台灣銀行、華南銀行;以及其他具代表性網站,如數位學習網路園區、104人力銀行。

該報告中指出,Firefox在Windows作業系統下的可用度測試記錄中,有86%的應用功能屬優良,對一般使用者而言可正常操作無礙,然而仍有許多網頁並未提供可由Firefox顯示之多媒體組件,如聲音、影像以及特殊外掛程式等,如微軟的Active X,因此導致該報告無法針對Firefox在此方面的可應用度進行評估。

翔威國際指出,儘管Firefox所提供的多媒體組件與現行使用者瀏覽網頁之可應用度無關,然卻是該瀏覽器是否可繼續廣為流傳的重要因素之一,該公司則建議大眾化及政府網頁應提供合乎國際標準,如將資料調整為標準的檔案格式,包括HTML標籤、標準的圖案格式JPEG、PNG、GIF,以及標準的多媒體影音格式如MPEG等,並移除僅有特定瀏覽器可呈現的資料格式,以助自由軟體在市場上的正常應用。

此外,對使用者而言,Firefox瀏覽器在學習性、操作性、易懂性以及有效性的應用度均佔極高評價,結果中顯示為良好者,約近九成,而易學習性更達100%。翔威國際表示,測試結果所顯示出的高接受度及易學習性,將有助於推廣Firefox到一般大眾市場的接受度。

測試結果中,Firefox在Windows XP中的整體畫面顯示效果較佳,包括滿意度、學習性以及整體美學等評價都超越其在Windows 2000上的呈現效果。
