Important security update for .Net vulnerability

This month, one of the Microsoft security patches that was released was an important update for a vulnerability to the .NET Framework that could allow a denial of service attack. It is important to make sure that you have patched all of your Windows computers to make sure you are not vulnerable. Check out the TechNet link below for more details.

Product Highlight

LogIt

Managing IIS logs can be a headache, especially with the amount of space that you use. Most administrators only keep a set amount of them on file and create a task to remove the rest. If you are looking for a better solution, check out LogIt. They have a simple and effective way to centralize your logs and remove that burden from the server.
