You can always use more private and reliable DNS servers, and in this guide we'll show how to change these settings on Windows 10.

If you use Windows and I suspect you do, here is how to set up using static DNS servers.  I suggest Cloudflare's DNS server at which has done far better for me that ATT ever did.  Google's DNS server is which is a good backup DNS server.

For any Australians out there who want to try a static DNS server set up, you may want to google for the best Australian static DNS servers. That should work better than a server on the other side of Earth.

A new COVID-19-themed malware has been reported as spreading through Emails.

Microsoft says the email contains an Office file that uses the aging Excel 4.0 macros,
which—in turn—deploy, when opened, a remote access tool named NetSupport Manager.
Both are legitimate tools redeployed by hackers to fulfill different malicious goals.

The emails purport to come from The Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center
bearing the header "WHO COVID-19 SITUATION REPORT".

The Excel files open w/ security warning and show a graph of supposed coronavirus
cases in the US. If allowed to run, the malicious Excel 4.0 macro downloads and runs
NetSupport Manager RAT.

Once the NetSupport Manager RAT is deployed, further files are downloaded, including
a few .dll, .ini, and other .exe files, a VBScript, and an obfuscated PowerSploit-based
PowerShell script. When the procedure is complete, it connects to a Command and Control
center to await further commands.

Lately I've been having an issue with PostImage.

When taking a screenshot, the boundaries of the image region you select sometimes shift
when you download them.  They often move inwardly so that a part of the chosen image is
cropped out, and seems to be happening randomly from image to image.

My posting today about David Wanker clearly shows this at the right-hand edge, and the lower edge.

Any thoughts?  Anybody else here use PostImage, or is there better image capture software?

I use Postimage, but I hadn't encountered that. Is it happening when you take the screenshot or when you post it to Postimage? I wasn't aware Postimage was involved in screenshots.
