We received reports from a couple of folks today that the website is back up. The DNS A records for the site have been missing for a day or so. is down?

Windows IT Pro has had a challenge running since early May to try to hack a server running IIS6. The challenge goes through June 8. Yesterday we received reports that the server was no longer reachable. It may not have been hacked though, the issue may be DNS-related. Currently, SOA and NS records for are non-existant. whois reports that the main DNS servers are ns[123] but these server do not appear to be providing data for this domain currently.

ezArmor Upgrade Issue

We received a report from Glenn Jarvis that after upgrading ezArmor to address the VetE.dll security issue (see diary entry from ), he started having problems with his computer running very slowly. The impacted computer is running Windows 98SE. After some troubleshooting, he ended up uninstalling ezArmor and reinstalling it without the latest upgrade and now his computer is running fine.

If anyone else has experienced any issues with the VetE.dll upgrade, we would be interested in hearing about it.

Memorial Day

For everyone in the US, I hope you are having a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day weekend. If the rain holds off in Virginia, we'll be having a barbecue here later this afternoon.
