- In Shop Service | Bringing Your Tech to Life
DROP OF SERVICE AT OUR OFFICE - FLAT RATE REPAIRS Bringing Your Tech to Life offers Flat Rate Repair for many common services. This is by far the best value to you, the customer. Simply put, there are aspects of repair that require the technician to start a scan or maintenance process and the computer does the rest of the work. When your device is being repaired at our shop you can guarantee you won't be billed for the time we're sitting there twiddling our thumbs! Our intake process is very thorough and 99.99% of the time we can provide an accurate estimate on labor repairs. In the case where parts are ordered we give you the customer the choice of what parts are used. We often offer pricing estimates for OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) and Aftermarket Parts when available. If a part cost is considerably higher to order from the Manufacturer directly and we can obtain the same part from a Third Party for less we'll let you know. We let you decide how you want to spend your money. Obviously you can ask us how we'd proceed and we'll give you our own opinion. One of the most common questions computer repair technicians are asked is "How long will the repair take?". If the technician has been in the business for awhile they should be able to give you a rough estimate based on previous experience. However, there are multiple cases that repair takes longer than expected and are out of our control. Examples may include: Shipping of specific parts that we do not carry in store or requesting replacement parts when they are damaged in transit. In Warranty Repair where the Manufacturer has policies that require the original part to be shipped to them before sending a replacement. Slow Internet speeds at the location for On Site Services. Older Equipment, Equipment with slow Processors (CPU), or Equipment with below recommended amount of Memory (RAM) installed. Check Out Our Reviews Our Guarantee & Ethics
- Warning About Used Computers being sold on Facebook Marketplace (Windows 11)
I'm seeing some computers being sold on the King Yard Sale Page with Windows 11. I must warn consumers that Windows 11 has been released to TechNet members for testing purposes only. This is not a stable release yet. Windows 11 has been leaked on unofficial platforms (Torrent Sites / Peer 2 Peer) which is great for individuals to test their own devices but these files may contain malicious code embedded by the uploader. I'm not saying that this is what has been loaded on these devices for sale, it could be an ISO from Microsoft that is legitimate, nevertheless Windows 11 is not ready for release to the average consumer or business. What I will say is Microsoft has stated that Windows 11 will require Intel 8th Gen Processors and AMD Zen 2 CPUs when it is officially released this fall. The image I copied (seller name and image removed) has an Intel i7-4710MQ which is a 4th Gen Intel CPU. Sources: AMD CPU Support Windows 11: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/supported/windows-11-supported-amd-processors Intel CPU Support Windows 11: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/supported/windows-11-supported-intel-processors This system specifically can run Windows 10 and will be supported until October 2025 but as it stands Microsoft may not support this particular machine after the official launch of Windows 11 and the buyer would need to roll the device back to Windows 10 assuming a valid license or COA is embedded on the board or a Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher COA Sticker is attached. There are two other issues that need to be reviewed: First issue that needs to be addressed is that the computer comes preloaded with Adobe Creative Suite which is a $600 product per year (see link for pricing per year or per month). There are officially methods to get volume licenses of Adobe Software but not for this particular use scenario. Is this software pirated? Are you okay with pirated software? Second this computer has Mac OS Installed, code named Hackintosh or Hackbook. If you read the Mac OS End User License Agreement it clear states that the software is not owned by the purchaser and can only be installed on supported hardware. If the machine doesn't have a fancy Apple Logo on it, then it can not legally be sold with Mac OS. Don't believe me you can check out a little company called Psystar. https://www.computerworld.com/article/2521538/judge-s-ruling-puts-legal-nail-in-psystar-s-coffin.html https://appleinsider.com/articles/09/06/13/apple_accuses_psystar_of_hiding_behind_bankruptcy https://www.quora.com/Is-selling-hackintosh-computers-illegal I know snitches get stiches, which is why I specifically omitted the sellers name and image from this blog. I'm not trying to get these business/individuals into trouble. As a business owner in the Information Technology Field I want consumers to make well informed decisions. If you decide to spend $350 on a laptop like this be my guest. Unfortunately most people purchase these laptops because it seems like a great deal and they're not aware of the risk. My job here is done, to inform you of the risk and let you make the decision. Just be mindful that if something unofficial breaks and you go to a legitimate business for repair you may be told we they can't help you. Sources and Links Below: "Using the principles above, we are confident that devices running on Intel 8th generation processors and AMD Zen 2 as well as Qualcomm 7 and 8 Series will meet our principles around security and reliability and minimum system requirements for Windows 11. As we release to Windows Insiders and partner with our OEMs, we will test to identify devices running on Intel 7th generation and AMD Zen 1 that may meet our principles. We’re committed to sharing updates with you on the results of our testing over time, as well as sharing additional technical blogs." https://blogs.windows.com/windows-insider/2021/06/28/update-on-windows-11-minimum-system-requirements/ https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/78931/intel-core-i7-4710mq-processor-6m-cache-up-to-3-50-ghz.html https://www.theverge.com/2021/6/14/22533018/microsoft-windows-10-end-support-date https://www.bringingyourtechtolife.com/post/windows-11-news-release #Tech2Life, #Windows11, #Hackintosh, #Hackbook, #RefurbishedPCs, #UsedComputers
- Handling Hackers
Criminals break into your systems, they do the usual, exfiltrate data, deploy ransomware, and leave you nasty messages about how they pwned you while blackmailing you. It is an unfortunate pattern that is repeated all too often around the world. Ransomware victim Colonial Pipeline paid $5m to get oil pumping again, restored from backups anyway – report Hospitals cancel outpatient appointments as Irish health service struck by ransomware The latest REvil ransomware victim? Sol Oriens. Oh, a US nuclear weapons contractor Cuffed: Ukraine police collar six Clop ransomware gang suspects in joint raids with South Korean cops However, New Square Ltd may have found a way to stop the criminals from capitalizing on the data they have stolen by making it illegal for the criminals to release any of the stolen information. You can read the injunction here New Square Limited -v- Person or Persons Unknown (privacy order) Claim No: QB-2021-002482. I guess we have finally found a solution to criminal hacking... just make it illegal! Sure making it illegal has already been placed into law... a lot of good its done so far Until something can be done it ends up being the responsibility of Consumers and Business IT Administrations to protect their own systems, their data and their private infrastructure. If you're not sure how to do this hiring a company that specializes in system security is the first step. The second step is learning how to identify malicious threats and improving your knowledge of this ever changing field. No matter how much security is put in place the biggest threat to any system can be found only by looking in the mirror. The next big idea may be: Make it where private sale of Computers are illegal, unless you go with the other party and a notary public, to a Big Box store, and fill out a CPWIA-404 Permit Form (Computer Processing w/ Internet Access) together including MAC addresses for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Ethernet, as well as the serial number of the processor to be witnessed and signed, with a background check through the FBI and SBI, before you can give a laptop, tablet, or phone to an individual over 21 years old. Then the BCTD (Bureau of Computers Tablets and Devices) will get with you in the next 90-120 days to see if the purchase is approved. *eye roll* Can anyone think of any other ways we can enhance our security theatre in ineffective ways? :) #Revil #Ransomware #Phishing #CyberSecurity
- Western Digital My Book NAS devices are being remotely wiped clean worldwide
On June 24th 2021 Lawrence Abrahams of Bleeping Computer reported on a rather serious issue that effects consumers and businesses worldwide, pertaining to their personal data connected online via Western Digital MyBook Network Access Storage (NAS) Drives. Long of the short - users drives were being erased! For individuals who used their WD as a primary source drive rather than a backup meant certain disaster as their data was now gone... if you've been a client of Bringing Your Tech to Life you've heard us say time and time again, "If your data is important keep it on two devices... and if it's really important two devices in two locations". This story, as with the many before it and the many that are sure to follow it, support this statement. Fast forward 12 days later (July 6th 2021) and Western Digital has responded via email to its users (yes you had to register your product) with a pretty solid solution that we at Bringing Your Tech to Life have to admit is the right steps to take from a customer service point of view. WD is offering a discount of 40% on new WD NAS Devices for users who trade in their previous WD My Cloud Products that have reached End of Life (EOL). WD is offering Data Recovery Service Offer for any customer who experienced data loss from this recent security incident. What can we learn from this? For starters backup your data! Preferably on a system that is offline (not the cloud) and off site. Secondly stop using Hardware and/or Software that has reached End of Life (EOL). Yes I'm talking to those users still running Windows 7 (and older), iOS 11 (and older), Android 7.0 (and older) and macOS High Sierra 10.13 (and older)! https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/wd-my-book-nas-devices-are-being-remotely-wiped-clean-worldwide/ Western Digital My Book Live NAS owners worldwide found that their devices have been mysteriously factory reset and all of their files deleted. WD My Book Live is a network-attached storage device that looks like a small vertical book that you can stand on your desk. The WD My Book Live app allows owners to access their files and manage their devices remotely, even if the NAS is behind a firewall or router. Today, WD My Book Live and WD My Book Live DUO owners worldwide suddenly found that all of their files were mysteriously deleted, and they could no longer log into the device via a browser or an app. When they attempted to log in via the Web dashboard, the device stated that they had an "Invalid password." "I have a WD My Book live connected to my home LAN and worked fine for years. I have just found that somehow all the data on it is gone today, while the directories seems there but empty. Previously the 2T volume was almost full but now it shows full capacity," a WD My Book owner reported on the Western Digital Community Forums. "The even strange thing is when I try to log into the control UI for diagnosis I was-only able to get to this landing page with an input box for “owner password”. I have tried the default password “admin” and also what I could set for it with no luck." My Book Live devices issued a factory reset command After further owners confirmed that their devices suffered the same issue, owners reported that the MyBook logs showed that the devices received a remote command to perform a factory reset starting at around 3 PM yesterday and through the night. "I have found this in user.log of this drive today: Jun 23 15:14:05 My BookLive factoryRestore.sh: begin script: Jun 23 15:14:05 My BookLive shutdown: shutting down for system reboot Jun 23 16:02:26 My BookLive S15mountDataVolume.sh: begin script: start Jun 23 16:02:29 My BookLive _: pkg: wd-nas Jun 23 16:02:30 My BookLive _: pkg: networking-general Jun 23 16:02:30 My BookLive _: pkg: apache-php-webdav Jun 23 16:02:31 My BookLive _: pkg: date-time Jun 23 16:02:31 My BookLive _: pkg: alerts Jun 23 16:02:31 My BookLive logger: hostname=My BookLive Jun 23 16:02:32 My BookLive _: pkg: admin-rest-api I believe this is the culprit of why this happens…No one was even home to use this drive at this time…" Unlike QNAP devices, which are commonly connected to the Internet and exposed to attacks such as the QLocker Ransomware, the Western Digital My Book devices are stored behind a firewall and communicate through the My Book Live cloud servers to provide remote access. Some users have expressed concerns that Western Digital's servers were hacked to allow a threat actor to push out a remote factory reset command to all devices connected to the service. If a threat actor wiped devices, it is strange as no one has reported ransom notes or other threats, meaning the attack was simply meant to be destructive. Some users affected by this attack have reported success recovering some of their files using the PhotoRec file recovery tool. Unfortunately, other users have not had as much success. If you own a WD My Book Live NAS device, Western Digital strongly recommends that you disconnect the device from the Internet. "At this time, we recommend you disconnect your My Book Live and My Book Live Duo from the Internet to protect your data on the device," Western Digital said in an advisory. Unpatched vulnerability believed to be behind attacks In a statement shared with BleepingComputer, Western Digital has determined that My Book Live and My Book Live Duo devices connected directly to the Internet are are being targeted using a remote code execution vulnerability. Western Digital has determined that some My Book Live and My Book Live Duo devices are being compromised through exploitation of a remote command execution vulnerability. In some cases, the attackers have triggered a factory reset that appears to erase all data on the device. We are reviewing log files which we have received from affected customers to further characterize the attack and the mechanism of access. The log files we have reviewed show that the attackers directly connected to the affected My Book Live devices from a variety of IP addresses in different countries. This indicates that the affected devices were directly accessible from the Internet, either through direct connection or through port forwarding that was enabled either manually or automatically via UPnP. Additionally, the log files show that on some devices, the attackers installed a trojan with a file named “.nttpd,1-ppc-be-t1-z”, which is a Linux ELF binary compiled for the PowerPC architecture used by the My Book Live and Live Duo. A sample of this trojan has been captured for further analysis and it has been uploaded to VirusTotal. Our investigation of this incident has not uncovered any evidence that Western Digital cloud services, firmware update servers, or customer credentials were compromised. As the My Book Live devices can be directly exposed to the internet through port forwarding, the attackers may be able to discover vulnerable devices through port scanning. We understand that our customers’ data is very important. We do not yet understand why the attacker triggered the factory reset; however, we have obtained a sample of an affected device and are investigating further. Additionally, some customers have reported that data recovery tools may be able to recover data from affected devices, and we are currently investigating the effectiveness of these tools. The WD My Book Live devices received their final firmware update in 2015. Since then, a remote code execution vulnerability tracked as CVE-2018-18472 was disclosed along with a public proof-of-concept exploit. It is believed that a threat actor performed a mass scan of the Internet for vulnerable devices and used this vulnerability to issue the factory-reset command. Update 6/24/21: Added statement from Wester Digital Update 6/25/21: Added information about vulnerability and recovery options. Update 6/26/21: Added full updated statement.
