Just a quick update on my upcoming speaking schedule with more details to be provided soon…
SharePoint Saturday Redmond WA. September 22nd 2012
As I mentioned I will provide more details after the September 1st when the first draft of the second edition of Business Intelligence in SharePoint 2013 with O’Reilly is due…
Original release date: June 04, 2012 Source: US-CERT Alert TA12-156A
We identified that an older cryptography algorithm could be exploited and then be used to sign code as if it originated from Microsoft. Specifically, our Terminal Server Licensing Service, which allowed customers to authorize Remote Desktop services in their enterprise, used that older algorithm and provided certificates with the ability to sign code, thus permitting code to be signed as if it came from Microsoft.
Security Advisory 2718704: Update to Phased Mitigation Strategy What we found is that certificates issued by our Terminal Services licensing certification authority, which are intended to only be used for license server verification, could also be used to sign code as Microsoft. Specifically, when an enterprise customer requests a Terminal Services activation license, the certificate issued by Microsoft in response to the request allows code signing without accessing Microsoft’s internal PKI infrastructure.
The following details about the affected certificates were provided in Microsoft Security Advisory (2718704):
Certificate: Microsoft Enforced Licensing Intermediate PCA
Certificate: Microsoft Enforced Licensing Intermediate PCA
Certificate: Microsoft Enforced Licensing Registration Authority CA (SHA1)
Revoke trust in affected certificates Manually add the affected certificates to the Untrusted Certificate Store. The Certificates MMC snap-in and Certutil command can be used on Windows systems.

#SFVSPUG Search and Enterprise Content Management
This session discusses strategies and techniques for deploying taxonomies in SharePoint 2010 and also includes a discussion of how to jump-start a taxonomy project by using pre-built foundational taxonomies. How many of you have copied contents from File Shares only to find that you can still not find anything just not find it faster?
I will show with a few simple steps how to implement automatic tagging or in place tagging so you don’t have to wait for your next migration or force management to use s spreadsheet to identify every document by using Boolean search not just synonyms as part of your Term Set.
If you choose to only use the Enterprise Keyword Settings on every document library I will give you a script to enable this feature on every document library. If you choose to use your own site columns I will provide a script that will make your Content Type the primary and apply it to every document library, then show how to modify the search result refiners so that you can drill through your search results. You don’t have to wait to make search work today
