  • BootAble – FreeDOS boot testing freeware

    To obtain direct, low-level access to a system's mass storage drives, SpinRite runs under a GRC-customized version of FreeDOS which has been modified to add compatibility with all file systems. In order to run SpinRite it must first be possible to boot FreeDOS.

    GRC's “BootAble” freeware allows anyone to easily create BIOS-bootable media in order to workout and confirm the details of getting a machine to boot FreeDOS through a BIOS. Once the means of doing that has been determined, the media created by SpinRite can be booted and run in the same way.

    The participants here, who have taken the time to share their knowledge and experience, their successes and some frustrations with booting their computers into FreeDOS, have created a valuable knowledgebase which will benefit everyone who follows.

    You may click on the image to the right to obtain your own copy of BootAble. Then use the knowledge and experience documented here to boot your computer(s) into FreeDOS. And please do not hesitate to ask questions – nowhere else can better answers be found.

    (You may permanently close this reminder with the 'X' in the upper right.)

After reading more of the reporting on the GoTo breach and seeing that "a portion of Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) settings" were disclosed I decided to reset my Authenticator settings. My reasoning was that there was no statement from GoTo one way or the other whether LastPass MFA was exposed so resetting was the safest thing to do.

If you are interested this LP support topic covers the process.

I also deleted and recreated OTP codes.

To be clear, as far as the safety of your LP vault is concerned, this is like repairing your fence after all your livestock have escaped. The attacker already has your vault, updating protections that would keep them from getting your vault is not going to make any difference.

I agree, but I had already changed all passwords which obviates any value of the thieves decrypting the backup of my vault. Just doing what I can going forward.
