I propose the use of Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer or MBSA in order to find the issues with the current network configuration.
I chose MBSA because it gives an in depth security analysis. MBSA, because it has to be activated on each computer revealing their vulnerabilities, is most useful in a setting such as this where there are not thousands of computers. This way we get an in depth understanding of the vulnerabilities. Another advantage is that due to being created by Microsoft there

Computer networks can be defined as a set of computers linked together to share diverse resources. In today’s world, those resources can be defined as information and other great material found on the internet. Networks are a fantastic concept that has brought about great things we can talk and communicate about. Sure, we did those things in the past but, with today’s technologies, we can communicate at great speed about things that took time in the past. Now, you might say, “What things can we talk about with great speed?” Well, anything! By

Boot process is the time between a person turned on the computer and the time the computer is ready to be used. Boot process runs very smoothly in Windows computers, but if there was a problem, it needs to be repaired before any software is open. As the power-on self-test is operating, the boot process produces flashing lights, whirring noises, and beeping. This test gives you a warning if the computer is out of whack, but it's unable to warn you of what's about to happen. The most important purpose of the boot process is that it loads the operating system from hard disk into memory, which communicates with any input, output, or storage devices. The reason that the operating system can't

The client is a short-running program (a simple type of application on your computer) which, when started, connects to the server and joins one or more channels. Each network consists of several servers, which helps in increasing the performance and the resilience of the system. In addition to that there is an interesting thing about IRC, Every IRC network has a huge amount of chat-rooms, or channels, and you can be in many channels at the same time.

This can include online credit card fraud, identity theft, harassment and bullying, and the distribution of child pornography or any other illegal material. Today I’m going to talk about the history of cybercrime, the agents that are responsible for establishing justice in cases and how this can affect anyone.
Cybercrime begins as a way for hackers to break into computer networks either for fun or to access classified information. This led to the spread of viruses that were able to cripple and disrupt the computers’ network operations. This causes a

Many people have used Ethernet technology their whole lives without knowing it. It is most likely that any wired network in your office, at the bank, and at home is an Ethernet LAN. Most desktop and laptop computers come with an integrated Ethernet card inside so they are ready to connect to an Ethernet LAN.

Benefits of Preventive Maintenance
There are several considerations for preventive maintenance plans. Preventive maintenance plans are developed based on at least two factors:
· Computer location or environment - Computers that are exposed to dusty environments, such as those used on construction sites, as shown in the figure, require more attention than computers located in an office environment.
· Computer use - High-traffic networks, such as a school network, might require additional scanning and removal of malicious software and unwanted files.

power of the TCP/IP model in its ability to describe what happens at each layer to the data that goes form one computer to another.
The TCP/IP model was created by the Department of Defense. In the 1960s and is based on standards protocols. It contains 4 layers which are: process/application layer, Host-to-host/transport layer, Internet layer, and Network access/link layer. At the process/application layer, it corresponds to the combination of Data link layer and physical layer. Internet layer refers to the Network layer which includes, IP, ICMP, ARP. The host-to-host layer refers to the transport layer is the same as the OSI model. It includes TCP and EDP.

Australia connected Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne in 1962.Optical FibresAn optical fibre is a very thin tube or strand of glass which was first developed in the 1930's. Optical fibers play a prominent role in the global communications network. The tube uses total internal light reflection where voice, fax or computer data are converted into an electrical signal and is then turned into pulses of light being proved by a laser. Laser light is coherent (same frequency and wavelength) resulting in a powerful beam which can carry a large amount of data with little dispersion. Sydney and Melbourne are linked with over 1.5 kilometres of optical fibre.Deborah White 10BMicrowavesMicrowave links are used

Cerf’s protocol transformed the Internet into a worldwide network. Throughout the 1980s, researchers and scientists used it to send files and data. In 1991 the Internet changed again. A computer programmer in Switzerland named Tim Berners-Lee introduced the World Wide Web: an Internet that was not simply a way to send files from one place to another but was itself a “web” of information that anyone on the Internet could retrieve. Berners-Lee created the Internet that we know today. Since then, the Internet has changed in many ways. It allowed users to see words and pictures on the same page.
