comment SFTP not connecting through Cisco 877 router
I'm pretty sure it's not the app. I'm trying the SFTP from within the network, and it's fine. Trying the same thing (using filezilla) outside the network is not working, and it's not getting through the firewall.

comment Windows 7 Password Expiration Notification
There's a good powershell script knocking about which emails users to tell them how long until their password expires, if that's any help.

comment How to prevent hackers attacking SQL Server 2008 R2?
You could try using a non-standard port, so instead of 1433 use something else. Note this is not a cure-all security measure though, merely a speed bump...

comment Create a Public SQL Server
You can configure something like 1334 which is memorable, but less likely to be subject to brute force attacks.

comment Recurring virus infection on a domain workstation
the file's legit - its our CRM database software, installed on all machines. I ran a MBAM test on another machine to see if that picked it up, but it didn't find anything. Seems MBAM might not be happy with the way the software works. ESET with latest definitions is fully updated and running, and has not found anything, so seems like MBAM was off the mark. Many thanks for your help.

I didn't run Kaspersky as we have ESET NOD, and seeing as you mentioned that I ran that instead. It didn't find anything.

c:\program files (x86)\ACT\ACT for Windows\ActSage.exe - each time there is an infection it is this file, plus associated registry keys.

I restored the exe from the quarantine and submitted it to virus total. It hasn't detected anything wrong with the exe. virustotal.com/file/…

OK thanks very much for the info, I'll attempt this on monday when we're back in the office. We do have ESET NOD AV, so I'll make sure it goes onto this machine.

Yeah servers have AV on (ESET) I'll run a scan on them to be sure. We're not using Folder redirection or offline files.

I've run MBAM on another machine with the app installed to see if it's a false positive and nothing came up in the scan. So the common denominator here is the user.

The user has the correct level of rights. Would increasing the level of UAC help prevent unwanted changes? The app which keeps being infected is installed from a DVD each time. The app is on every machine in the domain. I could scan another machine, to see if a false positive is being reported. I have had issues with the affected machine completely freezing, although this may be unrelated and caused be something else.
