I downloaded the log file from the web server, and found many strange entries. Why is a statistics script called so terribly often? What do all the junk referrers do there? Looks like some mis-configuration of the Plesk software for managing IIS.
Literally hundreds of times a day, http://cydas.org/plesk-stat/webstat/AWStats/cgi-bin/awstats.pl?framename=mainright&output=refererpages[^] is called. This shows the referrer statistics for the web site - virtually none of them is related to Cytogenetics (that's what the web site is about). Most of them are dubious domains.
The statistics page does not show query parameters, as they are required for a good link to YouTube. But the logs show many referrals from YouTube (most of them say: "This video is no longer available because the YouTube account associated with this video has been terminated.", but one is still available and bears the title "Generateur de Code PaySafeCard - Gratuit Code PaySafeCard" - criminal content, I guess).
What are your experiences with such a strange thing, how does this kind of hack work, and more important: how to prevent it?
[Edit]With a Google search (for awstats.pl and further search terms[^]), I found some more web sites which are such infected, and fake "user profiles" which link to the statistics page as their "home page".[/Edit]
I'd like to add some further thoughts about that problem.
The awstats.pl script provided a page with links - and everyone could add his favorite into this list: just send a GET request to any page of my site with a forged referer (any library for sending http requests allows for setting any referer), and it will then show up on the script page.
Why would you want to do so?
It is believed that you get a better rank with search engines when your site is linked from many other sites. And in fact, several "referers" contained "seo" (like Search Engine Optimization) in their domain/subdomain or page name. And many other sites were likely added by such SEO bastards.
Actually, back in 2010 a Russian web pharmacy was the first to massively use my site for that purpose.
But there is another group: they show "cheats" for games, provide links to cracked games, or even more criminal key generators. I guess they simply try to obfuscate their origin - my page is linked from somewhere, from here you get to a youtube video explaining their hack and showing a link to the next page to get the desired product.
Perhaps other uses are possible, but that's the idea I've come up with.
So, my question that I concern is how the API call exactly Driver functions.
User application call an API function, then API function call Windows Driver. The question is how the API function maps to Driver function or call the driver correctly, especially there are many drivers for one device.
As of my thinking, the driver must conform to the rule that Microsoft define?
Pls answer me in the soonest time and Thank you very much.
In Windows 7, when using a multi monitor set up, and each monitor has different resolutions, you will notice that when you move the mouse from the smallest monitor to the biggest one it always works well, but when you do it in the other way, from the big one to the small one, some times it fails.
Let me explain, assuming that the top of the display is the vertical coordinate 0, if you have the mouse pointer in a vertical position bigger than the maximum resolution of the smaller display the mouse cursor will "collide" to an invisible wall.
Is there any way to avoid that? (apart of course than using two monitors of the exact resolution or to set both monitors to the same resolution).
When using Mouse without borders in the office with my main computer together with my laptop this is not happening and resolutions of both devices are completely different.
This could be implemented and it would improve the experience in most of the situations as there are really not much applications that are using the first pixel of the display, typically there are margins around that would avoid the mess to happen.
I've been wondering if anyone has developed that already...

Hi! Greetings of the day, I have a windows 2003 server and have recently configured it to act as a router by doing NAT configuration. I have a public IP address provided by my ISP.I have a web application hosted on one of my internal servers and able to access the application on LAN. How do I access the same application using my public IP address?
If the option is grayed out you have probably not defined an address pool. This can be done in the 'Adress Pool' tab. But this is for multiple IP adresses assigned by your ISP. If you have only one public IP address, you can use the 'On this interface option'.
