Hello IT Pro,
Each week we're updating the full list on our website here. Enjoy.
But on with this week's tools...! Here are the most interesting items that have come across our desks, laptops, and phones this week. As always, EveryCloud has no known affiliation with any of these unless we explicitly state otherwise.
A Free Service
Have I been pwned? is a service that looks up the accounts that are known to have been compromised in data breaches. Tells you if your email has been compromised, when and by whom. Another fine recommendation from jjkmk.
New Version of Graylog
Graylog has announced a new version, and thanks to an alert from Arkiteck, we're passing along the news. "This release brings a whole new alerting and event system that provides more flexible alert conditions and event correlation based on the new search APIs that also power the views. In addition, some extended search capabilities introduced in Graylog Enterprise v3.0 are now available in the open source edition in preparation for unifying the various search features. Support for building search workflows with parameters remains a Graylog Enterprise function and will be enhanced in future releases once the search unification work is completed."
MiataCory shares a shortcut that is "Something I use with RSAT all the time, but can be handy in other cases:
Shift + Right-click something to 'run as a different user'"
DevTechSolutions adds "To expand on this a bit, I use this trick to run Server Manager as my admin account, then run any RSAT tools from Server Manager and they are automatically run as the admin account. No need to run each tool as another user."
Another Free Service
DKIM Validator quickly shows your DomainKeys, DKIM, SPF validity and SpamAssassin score in a single place. To use the service, first send an email to any address @dkimvalidator.com. Then go to https://dkimvalidator.com/ for your results. Since your message passes through regular mail servers, these tools will see the headers and can help you verify end-to-end functionality of your DKIM and SPF configuration, as well as your SpamAssasin score. Appreciation to jjkmk for the suggestion.
A Free Tool
RD Tabs is a multi-tabbed remote desktop client that improves on the basic utility built into Windows' Remote Desktop Connection. Designed for those who regularly access multiple remote machines, RD Tabs uses a tabbed interface to manage open remote connections in a way that seems familiar because it's similar to current browsers. Includes features like password encryption, remote terminal server management, connection thumbnails and command line scripting. Recommended by TinderSubThrowAway.
Have a fantastic week and as usual, let me know any comments.
