IT Dojo: Disable USB storage under OS X or Windows

Hollywood would have IT pros believe that the biggest threat to network security comes from international super hackers or high school kids trying to download games like global thermonuclear war. In reality, we face a more mundane threat--our end users, particularly those wielding USB storage devices.These pocket-sized devices can store a large amount of data. But even if your users aren't planning to cart off sensitive company files, USB storage devices (external hard drives, camera, memory stick, MP3 players, etc.) can be a headache in other ways. Employees may use your networks to download music to their USB-based MP3 players. New USB flash drives, such as SanDisk's U3 smart drives, can even run software directly from the device--a perfect tool for the end-user who wants to run unauthorized software on your network.If your concerned about USB storage devices on your network and don’t feel a written policy alone will protect your data, disabling the devices is your next step.In this IT Dojo video, Bill Detwiler, TechRepublic's Head Technology Editor, shows you how to disable USB storage devices on both Apple OS X and Windows. The United States National Security Agency (NSA) described the process in a March 2008 document from the agency's Information Assurance Directorate.Once you've watched this IT Dojo video, you can read the original TechRepublic article, download PDF version of this tip, and learn more about mitigating the risks poses by USB storage devices from our IT Dojo blog.

Hulu, News Corp, and the Web (2.0?)

I know this is behind the game, and that the bleeding edge of blogreviews has moved well beyond online streaming service Hulu (eventhough it's not yet out to the public). But I received my beta invitelast week and have had all this time to play around with it.My initial thoughts: none. No, not one initial thought. Hulu doesn't work in the UK. They don'ttell you: "Hey, if you live in the UK, you will be able to access andbegin your Hulu experience, but when you choose a show to stream,you'll be disappointed. Have a nice day." You have to jump through allthe Beta hoops to get there first.Now, I know I should have known better, being a generally web-savvychap. But after a few pre-reviews of the Hulu service, I decided not toread any more blogs about it until after I'd tried it out myself. Iknew not to expect too much, after reading the last review over at Between the Lines , but I wanted my own experience.Since then, I've found dozens of blogs about how bad it is that Hulu doesn't work in Europe. Aside from whingeing about the lack of support, I can't really thinkof anything more to write about Hulu (apart from its ridiculous,trying-too-hard-for-the-Web-2.0-market name). But, doesn't this kind of go against point of the web? The idea thatwe can make connections, share content, stream and connect? The principle of the internet is broken by this experiment, and Idon't think a platform intended to be a YouTube killer should ever havebeen trialled in a geographically-limited network. Sure, I understandprivate Betas, but why limit this to the States? I don't think News Corp really gets the Web 2.0 thing. In fact, I wonder if they really get the internet? It reminds me of LaunchCast (now Yahoo Music). When I first launchedthe player, all the content was free, and there was absolutely loads ofit. I was thrilled! Over months, however, content became harder to finddue to advertisement interruptions and restrictions on skipping tracks. Suddenly, Launch re-directed to Yahoo, and I could no longerskip any content without upgrading to a premium service which hadn'texisted before. Then, when I moved to Britain, all the content wasunavailable apart from a limited selection which I can only presume wasintended for a British audience. (Don't think my mates here wouldhave agreed in a focus group!)I haven't used a yahoo service since. No, seriously, I haven't usedYahoo. As soon as Konfabulator was purchased by Yahoo, I uninstalledit. I was all set to set up a Flickr account, when I found out it wasYahoo. (I might go back on that one, once I get a decent digitalcamera.)This wasn't really a boycott so much as a pre-emptive decision. Iknow that as soon as Yahoo gets a hold of a service, itsuser-friendliness will dissolve into advertisements and 'premiumservices' (a contradiction in terms!) This is what Hulu reminds me of.An attempt at grabbing a market instead of a well-thought-out startuptrying to sell a genuinely good service and make a profit on itsquality.What is Web 2.0? Hulu doesn't know, and it makes me think that NewsCorp hasn't really got its head round it at all. I shudder to think what's going to happen with LinkedIn.-Zach (http://www.zachbeauvais.com)
