    Default Question regarding "Workaround to Sudden Loss of Internet Access Problem" - Part Deux

    While I appreciate the Forum-Moderator responding to my (now-locked) prior post, the response didn't answer any of the three questions that I posed.


    >> As a temporary work around for the time being, we would recommend uninstalling the Windows Update.


    As I stated in my prior post, from what I understand, the Windows Update addresses some fairly serious security issues, thus it would seem that uninstalling it as a bad idea.


    So... doesn't it (or why doesn't it) make more sense to keep Windows as patched up as possible, and just add the simple custom rule that I described in my earlier post?

    Hi!both imply a security risk.One on DNS spoofingand the other on allowing all software on your system to TCP out on those ports.On the first there is no PoC in the wild yet on the second it really depends on what is installed on the system.Up to you to decide. If you are behind a router, MEDIUM settings is the way to go.A patch should be out soon...Cheers,Fax
