Clustering is one of strategic needed to reduce MS SQL Server downtime, so system can serve client anytime.

With clustering technology, we can take advantage of the built-in clustering capabilities to make SQL Server Availability in  the Enterprise Editions of the Windows Server family. To maximize the benefits you’ll gain from clustering, recomended to use Microsoft Windows Server 2003  significantly better than Windows 2000 Advanced Server for clustering purpose.

If we want to build system with high availability,  it’s needed best platform and system to make sure public service always running anytime from node to node. Analyze and performance test of each element, constructing and testing an end-to-end solution that encompasses people, process, and technology is the only tried-and-true method of preparing for a potential disaster. Redundant technology for availability only provides the end physical manifestation of a larger, agreed-on goal that also takes into account security and performance.

Mozilla Firefox Multiple Vulnerabilities

Author : admin

Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Mozilla Firefox by Mozilla Developer and Community, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information, bypass certain security restrictions, or to compromise a vulnerable system. Some of these crashes showed evidence of memory corruption under certain circumstances and we presume that with enough effort at least some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code.
Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in Firefox, which can be exploited by malicious people to potentially compromise a user’s system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a race condition when accessing the private data of an NPObject JS wrapper class object if navigating away from a web page while loading a Java applet. This can be exploited via a specially crafted web page to use already freed memory. Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.
