Can a File somehow end up inside of another file/files

Question: Can a File somehow end up inside of another file/files

My question is a security question.
If someone has a file on his/her computer that contains personal/secure information, for example a text file that contains passwords and account numbers, or an audio recording of a conversation where account numbers and passwords were spoken out loud...  Is it possible for fragments of the secure file to end up getting stuck inside of another file or group of files on the same pc...making it possible for someone to reconstruct the secure file from the fragmented pieces and/or view its original contents?  Or could it be possible even for the entire secure file to somehow end up inside of another larger file on the same computer...making it easy for someone to view the secure information....(by the way I only used a text file or an audio file as an example...it could be any file containing secure data)...My simplified concern is this...If you have a file that contains information that you want to keep secure...is there anyway that pieces of this file, if not the whole file it self, could end up inside of another file or a group of files on the same computer that the file containing the secure information was created on?...thus making it a security risk to even share mp3s on a computer that ever had any secure information on it...since maybe there'd be a change ur credit card numbers and passwords might somehow end up in one of those mp3s that ur sharing in a peer to peer file sharing program online.....or do things not work like that at all? Thank you to anyone who responds.

Preferred Solution: Can a File somehow end up inside of another file/files

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Can a File somehow end up inside of another file/files

It all depends on the program you are using to access the files. For example, Windows (starting from XP) creates a hidden file thumbs.db that contains thumbnails of all the images inside a folder. If you delete the original pictures through some other program or command line, and do not open the folder in Windows Explorer, this file still stays there. If you share the folder, this file gets shared too. Your information gets leaked.
 
If you use a computer for banking online or shopping online (any kind of financial transaction), then do not ever use that computer for P2P file sharing.

I'm recently noticed that some zip files that I store images on contain some empty image files "0 KB".
I'm just wondering if anybody knows of a quick way to scan a bunch of folders each with several zip each and then show which zip files contain empty files.

Thank you.

Answer:Check inside zip files for empty file

Use wither 7-zip or Winzip. Basic computing 101.

Hi All...
I will explain what I need in as much detail as possible.
I need a batch file to move specific files into a separate folder,possibly by opening my hex editor,searching for the word "body" ( without the quotes ) and if found ,close hex editor,move file to a folder called "moved" ,then go on to the next one.If the word "body" is not found just close hex editor and ignore the file.
I have approx 900 files in a folder.One is a vehicle and one is a map for a game.They are mixed together and the only way of telling them apart is by opening each one with my hex editor and search for the word "body",which means it is a vehicle.If the "body" word is not found,it is a map.Example wording of the files: mapname.idf carname.idf
Manually this process would take hours,even days.
It would be a lot better if there is a way of doing this without using the hex editor/batch idea.
Here is a link to one map and one vehicle file if needed for an example:

Hello, We have gone to the website
http://www.salonrenovationmaisonneuve.com/en/exposants
and download the file to open Inside of IE. Once the file is open, none of the links either e-mail or web site works. However, if we open the same file Inside of Google Chrome, the links work. So, we want to know if we are missing something in IE or a plugin.
The PDF file opens with no problem but the links are not enabled. The file works in an Apple Machine and Google Chrome. However, if we download the file physically inside of the computer and then open the file with Adobe Reader, the links all work! Any ideas
how to solve this issue? Thanks Miguel Moreno

I have received an mail that has a RAR attachment. The contents of the email are such that it can only have been written by someone who knows me, i.e. its not been generated automatically and the suggested contents could be useful to me. Unfortunately my reply to him bounced as his email company saw me as spam. Is there any way I can view the contents of a RAR file without actually opening it and possibly exposing my PC to some sort of nasty surprise?

Answer:Looking inside a RAR file

I wouldn't risk it.
"Unfortunately my reply to him bounced as his email company saw me as spam"
So is this someone you normally have no problem emailing? Seems funny if suddenly your emails are seen as spam. Have you tried sending a plain text email with no attachements to him?

hi all,
i have created a batch file that will run 171234 lines of code to rename 171234 files.
...............................................................
chcp 1252
Ren "75%.pdf" "146574 - Puttsawamy N - acceptance terms received - 75 loading - 29.09.09.pdf"
timeout 100
Ren "£100.pdf" "14234224234246574 - Puttsawamy N - acceptance terms received - 75 loading - 29.09.09.pdf"
timeout 100
..................................................................
this batch file worked on the majority of files but those with "£" characters and "%" did not due to the fact that on the output screen the characters are either not displayed or are different on the screen.
the file names containing a "£" were eventually fixed by changing chcp from default to 1252 but i cant resolve the "%" files.
(if they are input manually the problem is solved but they do not work in the batch file)
any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:CMD - Batch file to Rename files - % in file name causing issue.

I expect it's simple if you know your way around Code Pages and Character Sets

We noticed that when we use large files from a remotely located file system, it does not get cached by the Windows file caching feature.
Does Windows 7, and/or other Windows OS versions, don't cache files (into memory) located on remote data file servers as when the files are locally read from a local hard disk..?

Hi,

I am setting up a backup system for my pc, backsup to a remote machine via ftp. The files to backup will be compressed into a zip file and then backed up to the remote machine. My question is, if my pc gets infected with a virus and those files backed up to the remote machine, will the virus infect the remote machine as well ? (if the files are not unzipped on the remote machine & both machines running on windows Xp pro). Appreciate any help or suggestions in this.

Regards
Sudhi

Answer:Virus inside a rar or zip file

No, malware inside a ZIP or RAR file can't infect a machine, unless you extract the malware (and execute it).

So in your case, the simple fact of storing a ZIP backup on a remote machine will not infect that remote machine.

That's why malware researchers share malware samples in password-protected ZIP files.

Answer:Help, cant access file with trojan inside

If you can boot into Safe Mode try deleting the file there. Safe Mode has a limited amount of applications running which makes it ideal for purposes like this.

I've asked that a Moderator move this topic to the Am I Infected forum where there are those that are more knowledgeable about these problems.

google file of the .dmp, just started happening 2 days ago after an update so i'm assuming it's software related, doesn't happen constantly, sometimes i can go hours without blue screening, get a DPC watchdog violation when i let it error report

Hi tony82x,
Welcome to Major Geeks!

I'm making a bug collection, so if you'd like to contribute, please attach a screen shot of the bugs with your next post. Then please continue as follows:

Go to the READ & RUN ME FIRST and work through all the instructions. If there is something you can't do, just make a note of what happens to tell us later and then continue on. When you're finished, use the Manage Attachments button down below the reply window to attach your logs. If you get all four logs, you'll need to post twice, because you can only attach three logs with each post.

Thanks.

Answer:Communicator Toolbar and More - hjt log file inside

Hi TimS -

If you had followed through on your last thread here we may have avoided another round of cleaning. Please see this through to the end, where you will be given valuable protection information once your system is clean.

I'm going to have you run some scanning tools first, then we'll go after whatever is left.

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools->Folder Options->View tab:
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm and then click OK.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Before attacking an adware/spyware problem with hijackthis make sure you have already run the following tools. Download and update the databases on each program before running. Ad-Aware? SE Personal Edition

I got caught this morning. Hungover, tired, and just plain dumb.

"A friend" sent me a file. Supposedly some great an amazing pics of her new baby. On offer was a .zip file which I downloaded. Within there was a "picture" only it was xxx.jpg.xxx.com, so in fact it was really a .com file.

I ran this file (yes, I am dumb), and now my MSN sends out endless requests to other people to download these files from me which will infect them.

Perhaps my saving grace is that I use WinPatrol. When I ran this it detected changes to my registry startup areas which I told it to remove. Once I had rebooted I am no longer sending out nasty messages (so far, its hard to say exactly how often the messages are sent). However, the virus files are still on my machine in an unknown location.

I do still have the original infected file that I was sent which can be made available for analysis.

I am running XP Pro SP2, and use Eset NOD32 V3 with most recent updates. The bug went straight through this like a knife through butter. I have updated and recanned my machine both locally, and with Eset's online scanner. Nothing found. Eset misses the install files for the virus, and also the running virus (my friend's machine is still actively spamming the virus files out).

I have a fairly large Fortran 77/90 & C program, compiled using Compaq Visual Fortran 6 & Microsoft Visual C++ 6 under Win XP.  On a particular test case it generally executes ok when invoked outside a batch file, but always fails when invoked from a particular batch file.  It stops on a Fortran 90 Allocate statement, but does not return the STAT result coded into that statement.  Seems to relate more to how much storage has been allocated rather than to the particular array being allocated, because I can reorder the allocation of different arrays and the stop does not occur on the same array.Although this is a large body of code, the test case is small and should not be requiring a large amount of allocated storage.I have tryed cutting the batch file down to just the statements that occur before invoking the EXE file (which are SET /P, ECHO, COPY, DEL, IF EXIST), then running the truncated batch file, then executing the EXE outside the batch file.  The EXE also fails in that usage.Any ideas on what I should be looking for to fix this?

Without using any Nero or file burning software, can Windows XP itself supports simple file copying to disc. Not that I know of, but i have a user who can do these.

1. select a file, right click and press SEND TO the burner
2. simply copy and paste the file to the burner
3. reopen a file on a disc, edit it, and then can save it back onto the disc.

Strange, anyone welcome to comment. Thanks.

They were on a flash drive for a long time, and they are mostly all documents inside folders. I can't even get into the folders due to the extension. Is there anything I can do to recover them?

For those of you who have been complaining about the perceived slowness of Vista file copy operations (And <insert deity name here> knows ther have been many), I now present to you a copy of Mark Russinovich's blog dated 4 February 2008.

In his blog, he provides in-depth details of how the copy engine works, and what improvments have been made to this engine in Vista SP1.

Happy reading!

----------------------
The original text for this post can be read in Mark Russinovich's blog at http://blogs.technet.com/markrussinovich/
----------------------

Windows Vista SP1 includes a number of enhancements over the original Vista release in the areas of application compatibility, device support, power management, security and reliability. You can see a detailed list of the changes in the Notable Changes in Windows Vista Service Pack 1 whitepaper that you can download here. One of the improvements highlighted in the document is the increased performance of file copying for multiple scenarios, including local copies on the same disk, copying files from remote non-Windows Vista systems, and copying files between SP1 systems. How were these gains achieved? The answer is a complex one and lies in the changes to the file copy engine between Windows XP and Vista and further changes in SP1. Everyone copies files, so I thought it would be worth taking a break from the ?Case of?? posts and dive deep into the evolution of the copy engine to show how SP1 improves its performance.

SPDT.SYS used by daemon tools/alcohol and KeyMagic. Both.

Your computer was up for 2 plus days so it isnt happening frequently, and removing those two items may fix it.
Ken J

Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done: DuplexSecure - Downloads

I recently downloaded starry night which is a program that you can use to look at space features and stuff, but I had to uninstall it becuase it was taking up to much space on my computer, well now I can't delete the sucker and I'm constantly barraged by "this program is being used by another person or program", so I unistalled those programs and yet it still wants to stay, what do I do?
 

Answer:Certain file inside a program can't be deleted.. no matter what I do..

Before you delete anything else that you might actually want, try a system restore to before you had starry night installed.

If this does not help then post details of your system, the files you want to eliminate and the exact error messages.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrenControlSet\

and export the services subfolder and paste it up in a reply!

Hello,
I have a couple of computers set up in the network. They're all inside the same workgroup.
Every folder I share is visible by everyone.
Now I want to define permissions on only one folder which containes files only to be editable (modified) by, let say, one computer.
So I need to define special peermissions for this particular folder.
However I came accros to a problem. In network neighbourhood I can see all computers and their share folder and they see my shared files. But when I want to define special permissions on only one folder (one user can write and read, the rest is read only access), I cannot see other computers in the "Select user or groups" window just as shown in the attached picture.

One friend of mine told me that this is only possible when computers are on domain. It is really hard for me to understand that permissions cannot be defined for each folder and for each network user separately.

Can you give me any advice?

Thanks
 

Answer:File and folder permissions inside workgroup

Permissions are configured for local users on the machine, not network users or machines.

How do I make Windows 7 search inside of file contents on a removable device?

I have a flash drive with a few hundred spreadsheets on it, in .xls format. I need to search for words that are located inside of the spreadsheets. How do I do that?

Note: I have set my indexing options to search the contents of .xls files - this flash drive is probably not indexed, as it is only occasionally plugged into this machine. I am looking for a way to make Win7 search inside of files without having to index the thing.

Answer:How to search inside file contents on removable device?

Hello Dizzious, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sorry, but you will not be able to add removable locations to be included in the index anyway.

An alternative, is to select the flash drive in Computer or Windows Explorer, and search it from there instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Just upgraded to Windows 8 and I'm having an issue I never had in Windows 7. Whenever somebody sends me an archive (.zip, .rar, etc.) that contains file names that are in Japanese, they always appear garbled (文字化け).

1. I am using Outlook 2010
2. This happens through both WinRAR and Windows' native unarchiving program.
3. The file name of the archive itself (also in Japanese) is not garbled, just the file names inside.
4. I have the Japanese language pack (Windows IME) installed on top of this U.S. version of Windows 8, but setting Japanese language priority higher than English (through Control Panel/language) does not fix the problem.

Does anyone have any ideas how I might fix this issue, as right now I have to boot back into Windows 7 to unzip any Japanese archive.

Answer:Is it safe to store passwords inside binary file?

Yes if you have the password stored in a file, then it would be possible to reverse engineer that file and gain the password.

I'm using avira and I just backed-up my system. I plan to format my hard drive and before restoring it, I'd like to scan the backup file (.bkf) just to make sure that my pc's really really clean. Will it be able to detect if the backup file has viruses?

In the same sense, how about spyware, will antispyware tools detect spyware inside a backup file?

thanks
 

Answer:will antivirus programs be able to detect viruses inside a backup file?

I'm not sure if this will work but you would have the scanner scan the .bkf file and maybe it could. Even If It could detect I'm not sure if it would remove it because It would be already a compressed version. I would have tried to remove malware before you backed up your system.

I also noticed the very recent updates of ESET NOD32 and ATI video.

This message found in the dump -

I'd like to transfer some video files (some as large as 16gb) from my desktop PC to a laptop. Desktop is running Vista Ultimate x64... laptop is running Vista home x32. AFAIK, home doesn't support file sharing so how would I go about doing this? My external drive is currently in storage and I don't want to waste DVD's

Is there 3rd party software that will do this over wifi? What about over USB?

You should be able to setup a workgroup and enable simple file sharing to transfer files over your network (wired or wireless), but if you want, you could use this: http://www.tirminal.com/

Hi There!My housemate's laptop has a virus and they asked me to help fix it. By the looks of it they have the "Data Recovery Virus" on their laptop. Ran various virus scans and removed about 200 malicious files, but still no joy. Upon startup several boxes pop up stating:"Failed to save all the components for the file \System32\0000390c. The file is corrupted or unreadable." Each box has a different sys32 file, including ..em32\00004509 and ..em32\0000767d. I've ran spybot and SUPERAntiSpyware, both removed a whole load of crap on the laptop but not the damn virus im after!Also ran Security Check: Results of screen317's Security Check version 0.99.24 Windows 7 x64 (UAC is enabled) Internet Explorer 8 Out of date! `````````````````````````````` Antivirus/Firewall Check: Windows Firewall Enabled!

I have a very simple network and recently upgraded to a GbE switch so my two primary machines are now connected via GbE. One machine runs Windows XP and one is Vista Premium.

I'm using ATTO to test the transfer speed between these two machines (from XP to Vista) and the speed seems incredibly slow.

Drive Z: in the picture is mapped to the Vista machine via CIFS (eg. \\HTPC\Storage).

The Vista machine has an IDE hard drive (ATA 133), but these speeds still seem rediculous.



As a comparison, here is the same test done locally on the Vista machine: (which still seems really, really bad)


 

Answer:Why is my XP to Vista network file transfer speed so incredibly bad? (picture inside)

This is a known issue with Vista. If you want speed, go with XP. If you want security, go with Vista. SP1 will dramatically increase network speed.

The problem is with my usb stick drive when I connected to my PC all of my folders went white icon and file type says "File" just as I've attached image of it here. Please is there anything I could do to recover them as folders again is important. Thank you in advance. click here

Answer:USB Driver folders turn into white icon files with file type "File"

They appear to have lost their extension so Windows will not know what program to open them with.
You can test this out by making a new text file in Notepad and saving it to your desktop (so it's easy to find) then rightclick and rename - remove the .txt at the end, press Enter to save it (you will get popup message to say ...file will become unusable... click on OK) Now when you look at the file in Windows Explorer it is exactly like the one you have posted link to.
Still testing.. Now rightclick on the file and choose 'Open' you will get a popup window asking you to choose which program to use. Select 'Notepad' and the test file will open in Notepad.
It does seem strange that your USB flash drive has 'lost' all the .extensions from the files. Could be that it is (becoming) corrupt or has some sort of virus infection. So be aware you may get other problems. I would scan the drive with your antivirus and anti Malware programs and see if they find anything. I had thought it might be the 'Shortcut Virus' but your pic doesn't show the classic 'files turned into shortcuts' icons.

Turned the PC on this morning and all my files (audio , picture and video) now have the file type at the end of the file name so instead of cars42 it reads cars42.mpg same for all other file types, Why?
Also, had 2 new desktop icons "Desktop.ini" which open in wordpad as some directory log.
But now every folder now contains a desktop.ini file some have thumbs.db file.
Also, "This PC" has several device driver icons appeared which are empty but ask for a disc to be inserted, they read ie: CF/MD (E and SM/xD (F, aswell as a G: and H: , i've no idea.
I have not changed any file specs, it just appeared today.
I have many thousand files and need them to be short for work, i don't want the added .mpg,.jpg, .mp3 etc added.
Do i just system restore? how did this all happen though, Was it an update?

It's doubtful those files are missing. More likely a bug still present in HijackThis where it cannot correctly enumerate some entries, so it gives a (file missing).

Answer:when open a word file or pwrpnt file another file is opens

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

I saw your post right after you made it but I did not post a reply because:
1) Real life got in the way
2) I'm not sure that I understand your issue.
I'm not picking at your English, but this is important:

Your post mentioned, "another file is opens with that".

I'm guessing that you meant:
...another file is opened with that
or
...another file opens with that

Either way, the word open is really important to the description of your problem.

Let's just talk about Word for now.

When you open a Word, one or more temporary files may be created. This is normal and desired; but those temp file(s) should not automatically open in Word.

Please try this:
Close all copies of Word.
Open Windows (file) Explorer.
Double click on an existing Word document.

How many windows do you have open for the Word program?
(Hopefully, just one.)

How many files do you have open in the Word program?
(Hopefully, just one.)

Are you seeing this file that bothers when you look at Word or when you look at Windows (file) Explorer?

Hello everyone,

Firstly I would like to say that this seems like a swell enough forum as is and I am frankly out of ideas. About a year ago I had backed up a rather large series of files under one name for my roommate who was in the process of doing some "spring cleaning" on his computer. Fast forward to now and he is out of Hard-drive space damn near and has been unable to find the reserve file himself. Below is the directory under which I named and saved the around 200gb file of games and old-ROTC documents. Regardless the file needs to be found and even after un-hiding all files from the control panel, I have yet been able to locate it. It would seem to be simple enough, one would think that you could see the file name sitting above Program Files but it is not. Any one have any ideas, we would rather not have to reformat/ system restore if we can avoid it.

I have been using this same Excel file for many years. I viewed on my new home laptop 2 days ago, using a 2010 Excel Version. It was created on 2007.

I opened it on my work computer, version 2003, and now get the above error message on both machines. The file can no longer be opened.

I have tried emailing it, still won't open.

I have chenged the file type to both .xls and .xlxs neither open.

I downloaded the program on the home page of this site, and it said no file issues, no known problems for this file.

When I click Open File, it still shows where I had the file opened (the file name in lighter gray font - but cannot open.) The original file is in black, and I can open. But, get that message.

I also tried to open and fix - and I tried both options, with formulas, and without formulas, and all it opened was foreign characters.

Any other suggestions? Or is this file gone? Unfortunately, my most recent back up is 3-4 months old...

Follow these steps to grant full permissions to the folder where the files are stored: 1. Right click on the folder on the external drive and click on
properties. 2. On the property window, click Security tab.
3. Now click on Edit and then click Add.
4. Now type everyone in the box and
click OK.

5. Then check Full control check box.

6. Click on Apply and then click OK.
You may also try the below mentioned steps:
1. Click on Start. 2. Go to Control Panel. 3. Select "SOUND". 4. Double click on speakers. 5. Click on advanced tab and then uncheck enable audio enhancements.






But then I received the error message that I don't have rights to edit and add.  Why would this be?  I am the administrator?

I just finish off using my CA security suite to custom scan 1 file, but the mesg. didn't say whether it was scanning the file itself, or the files within the RAR file.

So how do you know the anti virus software is doing its job?
 

Answer:when an anti-virus scan a RAR file, should it automatically scan the inside?

Check the options or settings within CA to see if it is set to scan inside compressed files, and if it isn't, turn it on. An AV that doesn't scan inside compressed files is about as worthless as a screen door on a submarine.
