  • Is anyone using Alert Standard Format (ASF)?

    This morning while inspecting a user's computer that was supposedly infected with spyware I received a false positive that involved a file in the Broadcom network card's support files folder. That caused me to poke around in the Broadcom folder and find various .exe files that had the acronym 'ASF' in it. That led me to reading about it on Broadcom's site as well as finding some other sources of information.

    It looks interesting. At this point in my understanding of it, it kinda reminds me of HP's ILO Basic (or Standard or whatever its called). I'm thinking about playing around with it. Is anyone using it and if so what are your thoughts on it?

    I think it's great you have time to look at these things. We have Altiris at work but I will have a read and see how it works now !
    cheers

      Looks like it's another technology that allows one to manage a computer from under the OS layer... Like Altiris, vPro, iLO and all others...
      The only question to be asked is how standard is this solution? How long will it take until you'll get a system that cannot be managed this way, because it doesn't have this technology?
      BTW Nonapeptide, you might want to change the thread's title to ASF, and not ASR (that stands for Automatic System Recovery).

        *gasp* I didn't even notice that. Alas, I can't change the thread's title myself. Anyone care to bail me out again? Dumber has already done it for me about 3 times. Not only is he a Rogue Thread Merge Master but he's becoming a Mistyped Thread Title Recovery Architect.

          I asked one of the moderators of this forum (Ossian or m80arm) to edit the title.
