How to change password on blackberry when you don't know the password?


If you or a user turns on content protection for a BlackBerry device that is running BlackBerry Device Software version 4.3 or later, you can reset the BlackBerry device password using a BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 4.1 SP5 or later. The BlackBerry Enterprise Solution uses the remote password reset cryptographic protocol to reset the BlackBerry device password when content protection is turned on. The BlackBerry device does not prompt the user for the old BlackBerry device password.
The remote password reset cryptographic protocol is designed to provide the following features:

* permit the BlackBerry device to encrypt the content protection key again with the new password, without the old password being available
* prevent a hardware-based attack on the BlackBerry device from recovering the content protection key without knowing either the BlackBerry device password or the IT policy private key that the BlackBerry Enterprise Server generates for the BlackBerry device
* prevent the BlackBerry Enterprise Server from accessing any data that a potentially malicious user could use to recover the content protection key

To reset the BlackBerry device password, you send the Specify new device password and lock device IT administration command to the BlackBerry device. You should send the IT administration command to a content-protected BlackBerry device that is in the possession of the BlackBerry device user only. If you send the IT administration command to a BlackBerry device that is in the possession of a potentially malicious user, that user can use a hardware-based attack to recover the key pair that the BlackBerry device created when it received the IT policy. The potentially malicious user can use the key pair to decrypt all the data on the BlackBerry device.

I installed and used the NComputing x300 on windows XP-SP2 on Dell Optiplex GX-280. At first it was working. Latter I get a Virus attack in my computer and formatted the Computer with the same OS. Then I...


You need to re-register the software and the devices. Reboot after registration all should work fine. BTW - I'd recommend installing SP3 (will minimize virus attacks due to increase security patches) and contact NC TS for updated X300 software, it's free so they won't charge you for it and your system will be more current.

You have a Backdoor Trojan present on your pc
A Backdoor is a software program that gives an attacker unauthorized access to a machine and the means for remotely controlling the machine without the user's knowledge. A Backdoor compromises system integrity by making changes to the system that allow it to by used by the attacker for malicious purposes unknown to the user.

They are typically installed without user interaction through security exploits, and may allow an attacker to remotely control the infected machine. Such risks may allow the attacker to install additional malware and use the compromised machine to participate in denial of service attacks, spamming, and bot nets, or to transmit sensitive data to a remote server. The malware may be cloaked and not visible to the user. These risks severely compromise the system by lowering security settings, installing 'backdoors,' infecting system files, or spreading to other networked machines.

If your computer was used for online banking or has credit card information on it, all passwords should be changed immediately to include those used for email, eBay and forums.
You should consider them to be compromised.
They should be changed by using a different computer and not the infected one,if not an attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information.
Banking and credit card institutions should be notified of the possible security breech.

Since your computer was compromised read:

What is XSS filter in IE 8 ??


XSS is Cross Site Scripting.
XSS vulnerabilities enable an attacker to control the relationship between a user and a web site or web application that they trust. Cross-site scripting can enable attacks such as:
  • Cookie theft, including the theft of sessions cookies that can lead to account hijacking

  • Monitoring keystrokes input to the victim web site / application

  • Performing actions on the victim web site on behalf of the victim user. For example, an XSS attack on Windows Live Mail might enable an attacker to read and forward e-mail messages, set new calendar appointments, etc.
IE 8's filter shuts down this vulnerability.

Dear Karen,
protected mode:
Protected Mode is an important step forward in security for Internet Explorer (IE); it helps protect users from attack by running an IE process with greatly restricted privileges on Windows Vista. While Protected Mode does not protect against all forms of attack, it significantly reduces the ability of an attack to write, alter, or destroy data on the user's machine or to install malicious code.

unknown Zone:

In the Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser, a site may be identified as belonging to an "unknown zone". This means Internet Explorer could not determine if the site belongs to the Local Zone, the Trusted Zone, the Restricted Zone or the Internet Zone. It may mean the page contains a mixture of content - some of which is from the Trusted Zone, and some from another zone.
