On http://seclists.org/fulldisclosure/2016/Aug/61 multiple vulnerabilities in the server of TeamSpeak 3, version 3.0.13 are documented. This topic was also discussed on in the community of TeamSpeak and an updated version 18.104.22.168 of the server had been released which fixed the vulnerabilities.
Unfortunately that updated caused other problems. If and when a new version will be released is not known at the moment.
As a short term workaround you should block the access to the port for “ServerQuery” (TCP 10011).
A while ago a wrote about living in Berlin soon. Due to the job I will only be at home at the weekends for the first months and don’t have access to my PC during the week. Technically my old netbook still works even after about seven years – but with its small display and the slow CPU it is barely more than a compromise solution while traveling. A regular notebook would make much more sense.
Pioneer offers a number of AV receivers with network connection which can be controlled using an app for Android or iOS, as for example the VSX-529, VSX-921, VSX-1021. The complete list can be found in the description of the apps for the receivers, like iControlAV2 or iControlAV5.
Raymond Julin found out that the interface used for these apps can be accessed very easily using telnet since the protocol is quite simple.
I use my netbook (Samsung NC10) despite it’s age still on a regular basis. Even though the case has some quirks and I had to use tape to fix the hinge covers – the device still works fine and a charge of the battery is still sufficient for a couple of hours of mobile use.
Just found that – in the early days of computers people created logic circuits purely based on coils and transformers (video in English):
The following description how to set up an USB WiFi adapter in Raspbian is a compendium based on several tutorials (also see the sources at the end). Additions about specific characteristics of certain hardware or corrections are always welcome.
In time for the beginning of the year it seems there are also new spammers on the net.
Since beginning of January 2015 the greylist on my server is quite busy again:
If you are interested in computer history you might like the archive of “Computer Chronicles”.
This television program was broadcast for about 20 years between 1983-2002 and was hosted by Stewart Cheifet and Gary Kildall († July 11, 1994) – the creator of CP/M and founder Digital Research – as co-moderator in the early years.

If you use “Premiere Elements 13” by Adobe, you may know the effect that an error message about a missing disk in drive \Device\Harddisk1\DR1 is displayed (“no disk”) when starting the video editor (shown here is the German message, but the English one is similar):
The mainboard in my PC which I used so far, an Asus P5Q, is from the beginning of 2009 – so it is about 6 years old now. At the time socket 775 and Intel Core 2 Duo (later Core 2 Quad) were still considered solid technology. Meanwhile there are significantly more powerful processors and a number of technical innovations which the old mainboard does not provide at all – for example UEFI, USB 3 or SATA with 6 GBit/s, which is specifically interesting for using SSDs. I could add USB 3 with an extra controller card but my practical expierences with that were not the best. Good reasons for me to renew the mainboard with the CPU.
