    Is running Windows7_Vista_jcgriff2 and uploading its contents on forums safe?

    Question:

    Is running Windows7_Vista_jcgriff2 and uploading its contents on forums safe?

    Hi. . .

    Yes, the app is completely safe. It collects mini kernel dump files, WERCON info; runs Windows executables, including WMI, driver query, eventvwr, systeminfo, msinfo32, dxdiag, tasklist, etc... & SysInternals AutoRuns. The app has been run by >>100,000s users since 2008.

    Please zip up the entire Windows7_Vista_jcgriff2 folder + PERFMON HTML file and upload to SkyDrive.

    The only concern is that minidumps and some other information can pose a security risk, albeit a slight one. They will most likely not - nor are they designed to - directly expose security information such as passwords n such. But other information can be used to assist in compromising a system's security, containing general information such as usernames of active sessions, the computer's name, and the domain it's located in. Use discretion when uploading information publicly about a computer in a production environment. It'd be advised to consult internal IT of the company before resorting to a public tech support forum. Otherwise, the material contained in a JCGriff Report is practically harmless, and most people aside from those in high security areas with strict security policies should not worry about posting them publicly.
    JMH and jcgriff2 say thanks for this.

    I agree with ya, anyone who's a system administrator should not post their PCs networking information.
