  • SpinRite v6.1 Release #3
    Guest:
    The 3rd release of SpinRite v6.1 is published and may be obtained by all SpinRite v6.0 owners at the SpinRite v6.1 Pre-Release page. (SpinRite will shortly be officially updated to v6.1 so this page will be renamed.) The primary new feature, and the reason for this release, was the discovery of memory problems in some systems that were affecting SpinRite's operation. So SpinRite now incorporates a built-in test of the system's memory. For the full story, please see this page in the "Pre-Release Announcements & Feedback" forum.

  • 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.

I reset my MFA for LastPass in Google Authenticator

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.
