    Had this warning come up on my BlackIce Defender just now. Has never come up before. BlackIce killed it.

    Anyone else getting this?

    Thing that bothered me was it's showing as a high risk item on BlackIce.

    Shows on the ISS site as affecting all OS's, and no way of removing the vulnerability, as of July 2004.

    Sent an e-mail to Eric, to let him know about it as well.

    ETA: This is what I pulled off of ISS

    Content-Disposition file name directory traversal
    content-disposition-directory-traversal (16757) High Risk


    The Filename parameter in the Content-Disposition header field allows the sender to suggest a file name. If an application blindly accepts this file name, a file name could be crafted that would allow an attacker to save the file to a known location on the victim's hard drive.

    Platforms Affected:

    Various: Any operating system Any version

    No remedy available as of July 2004.

    No popups blocked by my HW router's filters, nor found in SW logs.

    Have you run a Spybot scan lately?

    No problems like the ones mentioned but I do occasionally go to a white screen with a message showing a database error and a request to refresh which never seems to do anything. I can back out but thats about it. What gives???:(

    Over the last few days I have had periodic problems getting pages to load. Just happened now, slow as heck. I leave for a while, come back and it's OK.;b

    I just tried the 1911 Club and got an error message on every thread I tried to read. I went to the Kahr Club, read some threads. and posted to one thread with no problem.

    I'm glad to hear that others are experiencing similar problems and I can relax and not assume that my "devil's device" is going weird again,

    Maybe saying that something 'pop-upped' on my BlackIce wasn't the correct wording to use. There was no pop-up, just a warning on my BlackIce screen alerting me to that intrusion attempt. My bad, and apologies for any confusion.

    No one said I was awake this morning. ;)

    There was a post by Eric recently in the "office" that he has had some problems with the SEARCH function dragging the system down. He said the system needed to be rebooted 15 times in one day due to this. He says he has it turned off for election today and will be moving old posts to a new search engine soon. All the "white" screens and hangs you mention could be due to the reboots ...
