While I was browsing the net, I came across a video which one of my Students made it for me. After the EC Council Forensic Investigator class I had in Sydney, my “Kiwi” student send me the below video which i have shared you tube proudly. When I cam across I thought its going to be good idea to share it here as well. I hope you will enjoy it as much I did ;)
In this article I am going to show you how easy is to enable Hyper-v Client on Windows 8. As you might already know, Windows 7 had only “Windows XP Mode” or “App-V” available as “virtualization” platform, but running different OS’s in a single platform was not really possible. If you are a trainer or IT enthusiastic like me who likes to try many things on VMs then VMware or Virtual Box was the only solution. Hey is this not cool, No need to have a Server 2008 R2 or Windows 8 Server OS anymore :) all can be done via your client OS ;)
Hyper-V can be enabled on Windows 8 client via the Windows Features applet in the Control Panel.
Here is the Step by Step article for you :
1) From the Start page, select the Control Panel tile (Figure 1).
Figure 1: Windows 8 Client Start Page
2) In the Control Panel, scroll down the menu and select “More Settings option” like in (Figure 2).
Author:Janique Carbone Hyper-V Core Features in Windows Server 8 In Windows Server 8, Hyper-V features are enhanced, improving virtual machine performance and providing a scalable virtualization base for cloud deployments. Table 1 provides a comparison of Hyper-V key features between Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 8. Table 1: Hyper-V Feature Comparison Hyper-V now supports 2 TB of physical memory and a maximum of 160 logical processors. In Hyper-V, it is not only cores that are included in the logical processor count, so are threads if a core is Simultaneous Multi-Threading (SMT) enabled. Therefore, the following formula is handy to calculate the number of logical processors that Hyper-V can see on a given physical server: # of Logical Processors = (# of Physical Processors) * (# of Cores) * (# of Threads per Core) The increase in memory and logical processor support in Windows Server 8 provides the basis upon which to build dense virtual machine populations for pr...

PS: This post was originally written by a college , fellow MCT Chris ( From UK) . I liked it so much that, I can just put my signature underneath and reposted in my blog so I can get your opinions as well. Here is the post, looking forward to hear back from you: Hi fellow MCT's. Many of you know me, many don't (so hi!), but either way, what you won't know is that I have recently become a member of the MCT Advisory Council. If you don't know what that entails, then (as I understand it as a newbie myself!) we meet in person or virtually from time to time to discuss matters that affect MCT's, and to provide a soundboard for MSL to get our thoughts on new ideas/incentives etc concerning training, certification and other matters that have an impact on what you do inside and outside the classroom. One thing I wish to bring to the table (apart from my own opinions), is to raise awareness of the group as a conduit for the MCT community at large. As it is not always viable to consult 18,...

OK OK, this is not real hacking but it’s fun :) As well as there are some attack types, where the browser is been hijacked so the User can’t go to some specific web pages or the user will be forced to open that page as soon as they use they Internet browser, where the user will be directed to the FAKE/ phishing web page or malware loaded local site)
By default, when a Windows PC User tries to open a website from a browser, Windows will try to resolve the website name to its IP address from the local DNS cache.
The local cache is stored :
If this fails, it will query the host file and if there is no entry to the website there , then it will contact the DNS server which is set up in your NIC (Network Card) .
If there is any entry in the local cache , the PC will load or block that site depending on your settings. To make sure there is nothing in the DNS cache, you have to clear it so the little fun trick can work on your “vi... [More]
