Freelance developer for the last six years, I'm specializing myself in quality and productivity for the last two years. I spent the last year working in a Dilbertesque company, watching people doing everything they can to make projects fail.

For a long time, I worked with Microsoft technologies, but recently started to build Linux-based DevOps infrastructure—an excellent way to learn lots of new things.

I'm mostly active on Programmers.SE, but try to participate on other sites as well.

comment I ran a virus on a PC. What should be the next steps?
@QuestionOverflow: Avast was already installed. There were no warnings. I discovered the virus because the user of the machine alerted me that a suspicious file was downloaded when she was browsing a website.

@Ulkoma: in the question you linked, the person can't install an antivirus. Would a rescue disk have a benefit in my case where I already have an antivirus?

comment How to identify hackers based on ip addresses and the pages that were accessed
Are they harmful to your business? If yes, ask yourself exactly how much loss do they cause? A few actual hacking requests per minute equals a few kilobits of bandwidth and a small amount of computing power wasted—not good, but you can live with it. On the other hand, if you spend three hours per month dealing with blacklisting, it means that your company spends $400-$600 for your salary doing just that: it would be much less expensive to ignore those requests.

@ganders: not necessarily. I've seen lots of activity which looks strange at the first glance, but which then appears to be perfectly legit. The actual queries you quoted might as well come from something similar to an RSS client.

@ganders: about the downvotes, you may focus on your first two questions and remove the last one. You may also rephrase the title: as-is, it is too broad and can only be answered by a book, maybe several books.

comment Where do I find more information about a given hacking attempt requests to my website?
@Ramhound: I discovered after writing this question that wpad.dat is related to Web Proxy Autodiscovery. Effectively, according to logs, wpad.dat requests were always done from the local network machines.
