The sooner you report an incident, the sooner we can help resolve the problem.

What is Malware

Malware is software–a computer program–used to perform malicious actions. In fact, the term malware is a combination of the words malicious and software. Cyber criminals install malware on your computers or devices to gain control over them or gain access to what they contain. Once installed, these attackers can use malware to spy on your online activities, steal your passwords and files, or use your system to attack others.

Hi vTeam, I hope you’re all doing well.

I’m creating a nested VMware LAB where I have 1 physical server (Dell OptiPlex 790) with 16GB of RAM and 2 Physical Processors. I’ve installed ESXi on this server and inside I’ve created 2 VMs with ESXi installed on each (one with 11GB RAM for vCenter and the other with 5GB RAM for DC & DNS + Windows 7 and OpenFiler). I can easily create VMs on it but when I tried to deploy VCSA 6.5 if fails when it reaches 80% with this error: “Task failed on server: Module ‘CPUID’ power on failed.”, any ideas, could you please help me? Thanks a lot in advance and hope to hear from you all as soon as possible guys, cheers.

Don’t Login on Untrusted Computers

A password is only as secure as the computer or network it is used on. As such, never log in to a sensitive account from a public computer, such as computers in a cyber cafe, hotel lobby or conference hall. Bad guys target public computers such as these and infect them on purpose. The moment you type your password on an infected computer, these cyber criminals can harvest your passwords. If you have no choice but to use a public computer, change your password at the next available opportunity you have access to a trusted computer.
