  1. Ha I don't feel so bad now with my slow connection at home.
  2. Tarun, can you tell me more about this router that you mentioned WRT54GL with DD-WRT firmware? how is it working out? better yet even, what exactly makes it better then the official firmware. only reason i'm asking is becouse the other day i heard some people mention it, and now i read it here..it's a sign from the gods i tell ya and another funny coincidence, this morning i upgraded my firmware of my WRT54G v5 and i also set my wireless security to WPA2 also i disabled the SSID so it won't broadcast my SSID so hopefully no one will know i have a wireless network up and running. well, at least to the average user anyways.
  3. Holy Cow!! I'm almost too embarrased to post this...stupid Verizon
  4. Security company Prevx has released details of a bizarre mini-war that has developed between itself and the creators of the notorious Gromozon malware website. The purpose of Gromozon appears to have been to infect users of Italian blogs and message boards with software for the purpose of generating fraudulent traffic to websites and, where appropriate, installing a premium-rate dialler. Displaying a range of complex behaviour, an ability to evolve rapidly, and the willingness to defend itself from counter-measures, Gromozon is considered among the most complex malware systems yet to emerge.

  5. Google plans to launch a new downloadable application for Java-enabled mobile devices that acts as a client for Gmail, letting users read, create, delete, search, send and receive e-mail messages. The move is the latest by a major provider of online services to enhance its offerings in mobile devices, considered one of the next big Internet frontiers. With improvements in handset technology and mobile data access, companies like Google are trying to move fast to replicate the popularity of their desktop-based services in cell phones and other similar devices.

  9. you are so full of it sometimes... in other parts of the world that just means well...pretty much the same thing
  10. Web Application Worms exploit persistent Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in websites. It's a new category of malware and it's a growing concern for popular websites. Social Networking sites seem to be the most popular target as of now. MySpace has already been hit by two such worms - the Samy worm in October last year and last week's Flash worm. Samy was written by a guy who wanted to become popular on MySpace. So he designed the worm to crawl through the site while furiously adding people to his friends list. The result: over a million "friends" in a couple of hours. Last week's worm exploited a vulnerability in Macromedia Flash to redirect MySpace users to an objectionable webpage. Source: F-secure Blog
  11. Web sites like Amazon.com and MySpace.com may soon be inaccessible for many people using public terminals at American schools and libraries, thanks to the U.S. House of Representatives. By a 410-15 vote on Thursday, politicians approved a bill that would effectively require that "chat rooms" and "social networking sites" be rendered inaccessible to minors, an age group that includes some of the Internet's most ardent users. Adults can ask for permission to access the sites. Source: Cnet News
  12. all right Mr. Looneytunes, do you have any blonde Chef jokes for Trish?
  13. what if i'm only using one chat client at the moment? will TurboChat be any use to me? can i use it now and add other clients at a later time?
  14. A little-known capability in Google's search engine has helped security vendor Websense uncover thousands of malicious Web sites, as well as several legitimate sites that have been hacked, the company said today. By taking advantage Google's binary search capability, Websense has created new software tools that can sniff out malware using the popular search engine. Websense researchers Googled for strings that were used in known malware like the Bagel and Mytob worms and have uncovered about 2,000 malicious Web sites over the past month, according to Dan Hubbard, senior director of security and research with Websense.

  15. Lexar Media Inc. yesterday recalled certain flash memory drives made in China over fears they could overheat and burn users or cause property damage. In a joint statement with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Lexar said consumers should stop using the affected products immediately and contact Lexar for a free replacement. The recall involves about 66,000 devices from Lexar's JumpDrive FireFly family of flash drives, and the metallic silver colored 1GB JumpDrive Secure II. Source: ComputerWorld News
  16. According to angry consumers and the New York State Attorney General, Direct Revenue makes "spyware." These programs track where you go on the Internet and clutter your screen with annoying pop-up advertisements for everything from pornography to wireless phone plans Consumers have strong opinions about Direct Revenue's software. "If I ever meet anyone from your company, I will kill you," a person who identified himself as James Chang said in an e-mail to Direct Revenue last summer. "I will f------ kill you and your families." Such sentiments aren't unusual. "You people are EVIL personified," Kevin Horton wrote around the same time. "I would like the four hours of my life back I have wasted trying to get your stupid uninvited software off my now crippled system." Source: BusinessWeek Online
