Skype for Business is here!

A few weeks ago, we announced the technical preview of the Skype for Business client, and today, we’re thrilled to announce that the new Skype for Business client is now rolling out as part of the April monthly update for Office 2013! In addition, Skype for Business Online is now rolling out to Office 365 customers worldwide, and we expect the roll out to be complete by the end of May.
If you currently use Lync Online in Office 365, the new Skype for Business user experience will appear for you in the coming weeks.

Deliver compelling presentations using Office Mix...

We’re always looking for ways to improve how you can use Office Mix to deliver a compelling presentation and better engage your audience. We’ve done just that with two vital additions to Office Mix, Slide Notes and Closed Captioning.
Be prepared with Slide Notes
One of the most important aspects of delivering an effective presentation is being adequately prepared and knowledgeable enough to adapt on-the-fly. You may remember a presentation technique taught to us in grade school, which is to rely on notecards to ensure you hit your most salient points.

With Slide Notes, the concept and experience are much the same. When you click the MIX tab in the PowerPoint ribbon, and then click the Record button, the recording view will... | Read more »

TA15-103A: DNS Zone Transfer AXFR Requests May Lea...

Original release date: April 13, 2015
Systems Affected
Misconfigured Domain Name System (DNS) servers that respond to global Asynchronous Transfer Full Range (AXFR) requests.
Overview
A remote unauthenticated user may request a DNS zone transfer from a public-facing DNS server. If improperly configured, the DNS server may respond with information about the requested zone, revealing internal network structure and potentially sensitive information.
Description
AXFR is a protocol for “zone transfers” for replication of DNS data across multiple DNS servers. Unlike normal DNS queries that require the user to know some DNS information ahead of time, AXFR queries reveal subdomain names [1]. Because a zone transfer is a single query, it could be used by an adversary to efficiently obtain DNS data.  A well-known problem with DNS is that zone transfer requests can disclose domain information... | Read more »

Office 365—allowing us to focus on what matters mo...

Today’s Office 365 post was written by Timothy Harris, vice president of global IT shared services at Mylan, a global pharmaceutical company.
In information technology, it’s tempting to be wowed by a new product or swayed by a charismatic salesperson. But if I’m doing my job well, I actually look beyond the technology itself. I stay focused on solving my company’s business problems. For example, Mylan has been growing so quickly that we’ve found it difficult to establish a cohesive technology suite for our geographically distributed workforce.
In the past several years, we’ve acquired new business units that expanded our capacity to produce life-saving pharmaceuticals, but they also created an IT environment with lots of overlapping products that confused users and made it challenging to work together, especially across... | Read more »

Return of the Intermittent Bricking

So it used to be we’d wait for machines that were bound to Active Directory running 10.10.0-10.10.2 to freeze during startup and we’d either

  1. perform CPR or
  2. apply rc.server script fixes.

‘Things can only get better,’ we said. ‘Just trust them,’ we said. ‘They’ll get it all fixed if we just wait a bit longer’, we said.
Wrong.
This issue with createmobileaccount lengthens user migrations and disrupts the QA’d process we’ve been using in our organizations for years. Now we’re supposed to say ‘jolly good, carry on, we can just wait until 10.10.4 for that?’ Oh, pardon, that’s not a big enough deal?
But wait,... | Read more »
