Pushing poisoned style sheets into documents to XSS into GMail via copy and…

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/04/03

Scary:

Pushing poisoned style sheets into documents to XSS into GMail via copy and paste.

“Affected” office software

  • Office 2013, LibreOffice and similar tools, PDF Reader, FoxIT Reader
  • They can be used to poison the clipboard with malicious markup

Affected browsers

  • Just MSIE, Chrome, Opera, Safari, Firefox, anything WebKit or Blink.
  • Strangely, Blink on Windows behaves differently from Blink on *nix

Flash can be used to attach as well.

Increasing your Windows NTFS disk size under VMware ESXi

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/04/03

A really long time I wrote about Increasing your Windows XP NTFS disk size under VMware Workstation 7.

I totally forgot that article also included a link to do the same on ESXi the old fashioned style. The tool you needed back then (and still works) there is vmkfstools (the ESXi version, not the vCLI version), and use it like this to extend the VMDK disk to 60 gigabyte:

vmkfstools -X 60G /vmfs/volumes/datastore_name/vm_name/disk_name.vmdk

However, nowadays you can do the same from the vSphere Client as explained by David Davis at How to Extend a vSphere Windows VM Disk Volume.

After that you follow the steps in the original article to increase the partition size inside Windows.

As of Windows Vista, this has become much easier, so there you go.
