In my younger days, cameras were cameras - not digital devices. In those days, connectivity meant keeping exposed films out of light, avoiding X-rays of airport scanners, and choosing the best film development kiosk. And all this did not require any digital intelligence, but rather human intelligence. Older folks can even recall choosing the right exposure, playing around with aperture and other, what some now consider cumbersome, duties for a non-professional guy.

SMB, or Server Message Block, is one of the pillars of mass data transfers across networks. In the age of data centers and virtualized servers, this is the protocol that is doing the hard lifting, by moving, copying and modifying terabytes of user data, and keeping it secure and encrypted from hackers and ransom attacks.

The makers of network hardware are moving too slow to catch up with new hacking exploits, and so the markets are still selling routers that haven’t been upgraded. The situation presents great dangers to users, and this has been confirmed by research findings from the security giant, Akamai.

The majority of computing forces are now capable of being either an SMB client or an SMB Server and even both. The Linux/Unix world is being, obviously, the most diverse division of those forces as Linux/Unix runs on a wide range of devices from large servers to IoT firmware through desktops, laptops, etc.

January 1, 2018 by Tal Widerman Much has been said and written about the security threats posed by the SMBv1 protocol, and yet, as we look around in the beginning of 2018, the use of this protocol is still widespread. It is still not uncommon to find devices and applications using a protocol that is not only ancient, but also unsafe. Let’s take a quick look at some major reasons and recommendations that should convince anyone to stay away from this ancient version of SMB:
