THE LOST RACE . . .

‘I woke up one day and I
realized that the race that
I’d been running has already
finished and I’ve been left
far behind. Now, I have a
long way to go. I ran but
the path blurs and the poor
world spins madly.

I am now defeated, I am now
lost somwhere in hell. Now,
I AM A SHADOW MAN.

My aim is too big and that
my arms are too short to
grab it’

Exclusive: Who Won The E3 Buzz Battle? [INFOGRAPHIC]


Now that Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft have sung their spiels at theElectronic Entertainment Expo 2011 (E3), let’s find out which company, publisher and celeb got the most buzz during the week.

Webtrends compiled these figures measuring buzz on Twitter, blogs and other social media sources, gathered from Monday, June 6 through Friday, June 10 at 10 a.m. PST.

Who won the buzz battle? Was it Microsoft, which didn’t have any new hardware to show off but flaunted somehighly anticipated games? Or maybe it was Sony grabbing the big buzz with its reveal of the PlayStation Vita. Or could it have been Nintendo with its groundbreaking Wii U?

Do you think the amount of buzz each gaming platform got during the week was equal to the importance (and quality) of the products they announced?

Baby Born amazing effect? No, another Facebook likejacking scam


Mother and new born baby

Messages are spreading rapidly across Facebook, as users get tricked into clicking on links claiming to show an amazing video of a big baby being born.

The messages are spreading with the assistance of a clickjacking scam (sometimes known as likejacking) which means that users do not realise that they are invisibly pressing a “Like” button to pass the message onto their online friends.

A typical message looks as follows:

Baby Born Amazing Effect

Baby Born Amazing Effect - WebCamera
[LINK]
Big Baby Born !

(Note: I have obscured the thumbnail used in the messages, as some may find it offensive because of its err.. anatomical nature.)

The links we have seen so far all point to pages hosted on blogspot.com, and appear to contain a video player that you are urged to click on.

The pages are headlined: “Baby Born Video – Amazing Effects”.

Baby Born Amazing Effect

See the message at the bottom of the page? It reads:

If Play Button don't work please click on the Like button and Confirm, then you can watch the Video.

It’s at this point that the clickjacking scam plays its part. If you try to play the video then you will be secretly and unwittingly saying that you “Like” the link, and sharing it with your friends. In this way the link spreads virally.

As regular readers of Sophos’s Facebook page will know, scams like this have been seen on far too many occasions. It’s a crying shame that Facebook’s own security measures don’t warn about this particular clickjacking attack.

If you were running anti-clickjacking protection, such as the NoScript add-on for Firefox, then you would see a warning message about the attempted clickjacking:

Baby Born Amazing Effect

Unfortunately, thousands of Facebook users appear to have fallen for the scam – and are helping the links spread rapidly across the social network.

Here’s how you can clean-up your Facebook page.

Find the offending message on your Facebook page, and select “Remove post and unlike”.

Baby Born Amazing Effect

Unfortunately that doesn’t completely remove the interloping link. You also need to go into your profile, choose Activities and Interests and remove any pages that you don’t want to “Like”.

If only folks were more careful about the links they clicked on when using Facebook.

26,000 sex website passwords exposed by LulzSec


Red light district

The notorious LulzSec hacking group has published login passwords for almost 26,000 users of an x-rated porn website.

The hackers compromised the database of the hardcore website (called “Pron”), exposing not only the email addresses and passwords of over 25,000 members but also the credentials of 55 administrators of other adult websites.

Furthermore, LulzSec drew particular attention to various government and military email addresses (.mil and .gov) that appeared to have accounts with the porn website..

To add insult to injury, the LulzSec group called on its many recent Twitter followers to exploit the situation, by logging into Facebook with the email/password combinations and tell the victim’s Facebook friends and family about their porn habit.

Porn passwords

It should go without saying that logging into someone else’s account without their permission is against the law in most countries around the world.

Fortunately, it’s reported that Facebook’s security team responded quickly to the threat – and reset the passwords for all of the accounts it had which matched the email addresses exposed. Of course, it’s still possible that those email address/password combinations are being used on other websites.

If anything should be a reminder to internet users of the importance of usingdifferent passwords for different websites, this should be it.

The danger is that once one password has been compromised, it’s only a matter of time before the fraudsters will be able to gain access to your other accounts and steal information for financial gain or, in this case, potential embarrassment.

If you believe there might be a chance that your username/password were exposed, or if you’re simply in the habit of using the same password for multiple websites – now is the time to change your habits.

How Online Education Is Changing the Way We Learn [INFOGRAPHIC]


Over the past decade or so, the Internet has become a huge source of information and education, especially for those who might be short on time, money or other resources.

And it’s not just crowdsourced data collections like Wikipedia or single-topic blogs that encourage individual learning; huge corporations and nonprofits are making online education and virtual classrooms a very formal affair these days.

From the first online classes (which were conducted by the University of Phoenix in 1989) to the present day, when online education is a $34 billion industry, more and more students are finding new life and career education opportunities online.

Check out this infographic from OnlineEducation.net about how the world of online learning has changed and grown over the years.

The Web’s Been Running Out of Space, But IPv6 Is Saving It


The web has been running out of IP addresses, but some of the key players on the Internet have been testing a new protocol to ensure the future of connected devices.

Every device that connects to the web gets a unique IP address; the protocol for those addresses, IPv4, only supported around 4 billion addresses.

While some of those addresses are reusable, some are not. And the one-use addresses were leading up to the complete depletion of IP addresses.

IPv6 is the new protocol, and it’s replacing IPv4. IPv6 will make space for a huge number of IP addresses. Now, all we have to do is prepare for a worldwide transition from one overarching protocol to another.

June 8 was World IPv6 Day, and that’s exactly what participants were testing: whether or not websites, ISPs and consumers are IPv6-ready. Around 400 organizations teamed up and offered access to their sites via IPv6 for a 24-hour testing period. Here are some of the stats and findings that have emerged since these companies started working on the IPv6 problem.
