Office 365 news round-up

2014 has been a big year for innovation on Office 365, with Office Mix, Delve and Sway showing just a few of the ways we’ve added more value to Office 365. We’ve added functionality across other platforms, getting great reviews for the Office 365 iOS apps and moving toward general availability for Android tablets in early 2015.

Sharing the world’s wishes through OneNote

Every year children from the age of two to ninety-two put pen, pencil or crayon to paper and write their holiday wish list. Earlier this month, we let you in on a little secret—that our nation’s letters to Santa go to a small post office in the tiny town of Santa Claus, Indiana.

More than 13,000 of these wish lists find their way to Santa Claus (the town) every year where a group of Santa’s Elves—local volunteers who don elfin hats and jolly knitwear—diligently open read and reply to each one. But this year, the Elves did things a bit differently and built a giant, digital wish list with OneNote.

Starting today, you can see Santa’s list and use the power of OneNote to see what’s popular, find last minute gift ideas, or simply discover the unusual things people want from Santa.

TA14-353A: Targeted Destructive Malware

Original release date: December 19, 2014
Systems Affected

Microsoft Windows

Overview

US-CERT was recently notified by a trusted third party of cyber threat actors using a Server Message Block (SMB) Worm Tool to conduct cyber exploitation activities targeting a major entertainment company.  This SMB Worm Tool is equipped with a Listening Implant, Lightweight Backdoor, Proxy Tool, Destructive Hard Drive Tool, and Destructive Target Cleaning Tool.

SMB Worm Tool: This worm uses a brute force authentication attack to propagate via Windows SMB shares. It connects home every five minutes to send log data back to command and control (C2) infrastructure if it has successfully spread to other Windows hosts via SMB port 445. The tool also accepts new scan tasking when it connects to C2. There are two main threads: the first thread calls home and sends back logs (a list of successful SMB exploitations), and the second thread attempts to guess passwords for...

2 New Take Control Books

From Take Control:

Apple Mail. It’s hard to get by on a Mac or iOS device without it. But living with Mail can be a recipe for hair-pulling frustration, whether because of connection failures caused by Mail’s mysteriously unreliable automatic settings detection or trying to figure out the difference between long and short swipes in the iOS version. No one knows more about Mail than Joe Kissell, and he has distilled his most important advice into the second edition of “Take Control of Apple Mail,” now completely revised and updated to explain Mail in 10.10 Yosemite and iOS 8. 183 pages of goodness is only $15.

Mass Entroll iOS Devices Into Bushel

When you add a bunch of devices to an MDM, we call it mass enrolling. Adding iPads, iPhones and iPods to your Bushel can be done through Apple Configurator. Apple Configurator automates the enrollment process, but when working with Bushel the enrollment profile has the username and email address, if you’re using email. This means that you would only want to use a mass enrollment option with Bushel if you are not using email, if all of your users will have the same generic email address or if your users will enter their own email information.

As mentioned, an enrollment profile automatically adds your devices to your Bushel. To obtain the enrollment profile:

  • Log into your Bushel.
  • Click on Devices.
  • Click on Enroll for Enroll This Device.
  • Click on Enroll This Device.
  • Once the profile is downloaded, it...

Feeling at home in the cloud

 

Today’s Office 365 post was written by Tom Flanagan, vice president of technology at Alain Pinel Realtors

Finding the ideal home doesn’t just happen on its own. Real estate agents work hard to hit upon the perfect cross-section of style, location and price for their clients. The same goes for selling a home—getting the word out through all the best channels, hosting open houses, and working with prospective buyers to negotiate prices takes skill and effort on the part of an agent.

At Alain Pinel Realtors, we strive to enhance the lives and work environments of our 200 corporate employees and more than 1,300 agents. And for us, the “work environment” extends far beyond our 30+ offices. From my vantage point as vice president of technology, that means providing a platform for communication and collaboration that makes it faster and easier for our workforce...

I tell him he sounds like Google. I’m a cranky old coot, already, and Yes, I’m determined to crush his tender young dreams. I tell my Knucklehead Son that the best things in life are worth working for, that nothing good ever comes for free, and that knowledge is its own reward. I tell him there will always be the easy way and the right way, short-term answers versus enduring ones, and new experiments trying to challenge time-tested solutions. Don’t get me wrong, the idea of avoiding the expense of four more years of structured education and emotional coddling is not without its allure, but I tell my...

Simple Preflight and Sanity Checking in Scripts

I was recently building some preflight scripts and was looking to record some information about a machine live, before proceeding with a script. I found the cheapest way to determine information about architectures and chipsets when scripting preflight scripts for OS X to be the arch and machine commands respectively. For example, to verify the architecture is i386, use the arch command with no options:

/usr/bin/arch

Which simply outputs “i386”:

To check the machine type, simply use the machine command:

Scripted Country Geolocations Using OS X’s Built-In...

Recently I was working on a project where we were isolating IP addresses by country. In the process, I found an easy little tool built right into OS X called ip2cc. Using ip2cc, you can lookup what country an IP is in. To do so, simply run ip2cc followed by a name or ip address. For example, to lookup apple.com you might run:

ip2cc apple.com

Or to lookup Much Music, you might run:

ip2cc muchmusic.ca

The output would be:

IP::Country modules (v2.28)
Copyright (c) 2002-13 Nigel Wetters Gourlay
Database updated Wed May 15 15:29:48 2013

Name: muchmusic.com
Address: 199.85.71.88
Country: CA (Canada)

You can just get the country line:

ip2cc apple.com | grep Country:

To just get the country code:

ip2cc apple.com | grep Country: | awk '{ print $2 }'

Finally, ip2cc is located at /usr/bin/ip2cc so we’ll complicate things just a tad by replacing the hostname with the current IP (...

Opposite Day: Reversing Lines In Files

The other day, my daughter said “it’s opposite day” when it was time to do a little homework, trying to get out of it! Which reminded me of a funny little command line tool called rev. Rev reads a file and reverses all the lines. So let’s touch a file called rev ~/Desktop/revtest and then populate it with the following lines:

123
321
123

Now run rev followed by the file name:

rev ~/Desktop/revtest

Now cat it:

cat !$

Now rev it again:

rev !$

You go go forward and back at will for fun, much more fun than homework… Enjoy!

Refresh OS X CRLs

I recently found an existing image with a lot of stale crl information. We couldn’t rebuild the image, so we decided to instead refresh all of the crl information. This information is stored in /var/db/crls/crlcache.db. Deleting the file turned out to be problematic so we needed to clear items out of the tables instead. While this could be done using a few different tools, it turns out there’s a command built into os x to take care of this process for us called crlrefresh.

To use crlrefresh to clean up stale crlinformation and fetch new crlinformation for all CRL and certificates, use:

Lync for Windows Phone update—more settings for...

Barak Manor and Jamie Stark are product managers on the Lync team.

An exciting update for the Lync for Windows Phone is now available, part of our ongoing, frequent releases for mobile clients. This time we’re reorganizing the settings dedicated to voice calls, making it super easy to know and control which network will be used for phone calls.

Before, you had only two options for voice calls, configured with the “Require Wi-Fi for VoIP” setting. Now that we’ve refined and renamed the two Wi-Fi options and added the Cellular option, you have three clearly defined options to choose from, each with its own advantages.

  • VoIP always—The device will use a Wi-Fi connection, if available, to place the call. If Wi-Fi isn’t available, the device will defer to the 3G/4G data plan and the Lync voice calls will be initiated over that connection.
    This option is perfect for those of you who always want to have the richest...

What happens when 9 Excel power users come to...

Excel is a tool that means different things to many different people. And with the app available for the PC, Mac, web and even your phones and tablets, the ways in which Excel is being used is expanding like crazy. So it is important for our team to continuously learn from our diverse customers. In November, we decided to try a new way of engaging with some of our most dedicated power users, modelers and analysts in the financial industry.

Through a year-long partnership with the ModelOff Financial Services World Championship, we reached out to nine financial professionals who use Excel creatively to solve complex financial problems and invited them to travel from across the world for a few days in our house … Redmond, WA. By the end of the trip, the participants had walked the halls where we design, development and test the product, brainstormed new ideas for us to consider in next product versions and gave first hand...

The Sway philosophy

Chris Pratley is the partner director of engineering for the Sway team.

Since announcing Sway on October 1st, we’ve heard from thousands of you who signed up to join the Sway Preview. We’re thrilled that so many of you see the benefit of Sway in your own life. We also know that many of you want to understand more about why we developed Sway. In this post, I’ll take you through more of the background behind Sway and the philosophy behind the product.

Why did we develop Sway?

Sway comes from the Microsoft Office team. Many of the people on the team have worked on productivity software for years. We have deep experience in how people get stuff done, what they are trying to achieve, what matters to them and how work and content creation in particular has evolved over time. Over the years we have improved our core applications, making them easier to use, more powerful, more connected to the internet, available on mobile devices, etc. Our core applications...

Excel Power Map–December update for Office 365

Last month we shipped a great time saving feature—playing a tour directly from any scene. This month we’ve improved Geocoding performance, made the Auto Fit feature for custom maps more accurate, and added another popularly requested feature as well—a quick way to select all items when filtering.

When we shipped Filtering back in September, we got a lot of positive feedback, as well as several new requests. One common request was to make it easier to select all of the items in the filter search results. Well now you can, just click the (Select All Search Results) check box and we’ll select not only the visible items for you but also the ones that are cut off because you have too many results. This is a very convenient way to explore your data through filtering by slowly narrowing it down.

Steve Kraynak is a program manager for the Office team.

Beginning with the November and December 2014 updates for Microsoft Office 2013 and 2010, several enhancements are being added to the Document Inspector, also known as the “Check for Issues” tool in Excel, PowerPoint and Word. The Document Inspector helps you to prepare your documents, presentations, or workbooks for publishing and sharing by checking for items that may contain hidden or private information. In some cases, it will remove such items from your document, in other cases it alerts you even if it can’t automatically remove the items. For more information about the Document Inspector, read about it on Office.com, where there are articles explaining how it works in Excel,...

Strengthening our multi-state competitive advantage...

Today’s post about Office 365 was written by Steven White, chief information officer for Brock & Scott

When I joined Brock & Scott a year ago, the firm had come through a sustained growth phase, expanding from its two founders in 1998 to more than 935 employees in 17 locations across seven states in the southeastern United States. We developed a reputation for our work for some of the United States’ largest banks. There are few firms that have our multistate footprint and the ability to serve our clients across a large geographic region is one of our competitive advantages.

However, to improve that competitive advantage, we needed to maintain the same high level of expertise and service across all our offices. So one of my early priorities as CIO was to help Brock & Scott implement a common set of business productivity tools that would foster a...

Enable AutoAdminLogon For Windows Deployments

There are 3 registry keys that admins in the Windows world use to enable automatic logins, often required for deployments that require a logged in user to setup user environments, such as configuring app deployments as part of a mass deployment.

The required keys in the registry are:
HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon’ -Name DefaultUserName -Value “Krypted\Administrator”
HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon’ -Name DefaultPassword -Value pass
HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon’ -Name AutoAdminLogon -Value 1

Once set as above the administrator on the domain krypted will automatically authenticate with a password of pass. To put this into a powershell script:

PS C:\> New-ItemProperty -Path ‘HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon’ -Name AutoAdminLogon -Value 1

Merriam-Webster defines collaboration as working “with another person or group in order to achieve or do something.” So it’s no surprise that for an increasing number of businesses and individuals, the real-world definition of collaboration is Office 365.

Office 365 is built for collaboration—across the web and across devices—making it easy for you to work with other people and get things done, even when you and your colleagues are separated by time or distance, or you’re all using different platforms and devices. Office 365 combines the power of world-class productivity tools, such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneDrive, Lync and Skype, with the social capabilities of Yammer and the ability to discover the right information at the right time with ...

Organize your holiday with OneNote

Holiday shopping can be hectic. There’s so much to do in a narrow window of time that sometimes we can lose sight of the cheer in it all. Let OneNote help you keep everything in its place—so you can stress a little less and enjoy each moment a little more.

Holiday gift lists

Keep track of everyone you’re buying for with organized wish lists in OneNote. (Even convert handwriting to text with OneNote 2013 to make a child’s list legible.) To simplify, categorize each list by person, store, or discount deals. When you’re shopping on the go, save time with the recently updated OneNote Clipper. Just clip a product you’re interested in and automatically save the most important information to your notebook for later. You can also choose to send the clipping to your inbox with the Email to OneNote feature.

Why Office 365 is the best choice for collaboration

The rise of mobile technology and cloud computing has transformed the way we work, making collaboration not only easier, but also essential for the success of every organization. There are now more mobile devices than people worldwide, according to a report by Cisco, and work increasingly occurs outside of offices—in homes, hotels, airports, coffee shops, and other temporary spaces. As a result, the trend toward greater mobility, and the need for more efficient collaboration across the web and across devices, is accelerating every year.

The IBM Global CIO Study, found that 49 percent of an individuals’ work is the result of “network contribution” by fellow employees and partners. Yet 80 percent of employees are ineffective at collaboration, according to...
