Microsoft Corp., which is bracing for an attack against its Web site by computers infected with the Mydoom virus, issued a patch for what it called a critical flaw in its Web browser software. Microsoft posted on its Web site a fix for its Internet Explorer Web browser that prevents malicious software coders from making any Web site address look like that of another, a tactic scammers have used to trick individuals into disclosing personal banking information. Microsoft first became aware of the flaws in December, through postings on a security Web site, said Microsoft security program manager Mike Reavey. Microsoft said it was responding to increased demand from customers for a way to prevent faked Web sites, known as "URL spoofing." Software coders have in recent weeks sent out e-mail messages directing consumers to fake Web sites whose addresses appear to be those of Citigroup and banks. The scam, known as "phishing," gulls users into entering their bank account data into a form, which the scammers then mine for information. "They've been aware of some of these problems long before November and December," said Russ Cooper, a security researcher at TruSecure Corporation of Herndon, Virginia. Cooper said the problems that were fixed were being exploited by scammers as long as two years ago.Source: The Salt Lake Tribune This "phishing" flaw really takes the cake. I know M$ takes a while to get patches out (why is beyond me), but this is a serious problem. A lot of people, unfortunately, get swindled into typing in their personal information into these bogus sites. It is almost as if they don't care at all. Do they?
ERROR: String was not recognized as a valid DateTime.Huh? This is the error I now get, out of the blue, because it had been working for months. That is the problem with Bloglet, it works for a while, then it won't work, and it is a mystery. This is part of the reason I have put my full posts in my RSS feed. I am giving up on Bloglet. Jake is using Dada, but I don't want to take the time (I don't have time to take the time) to set it up. Although it does look nice. I only have 10 people signed up to get the updates, and they are not used to getting reliable updates, thank you Bloglet! UPDATE: I see on the Bloglet site:
'String was not recognized as a valid DateTime.' error for certain RSS feeds Bloglet is rejecting RSS feeds with dates in the following format: "Tue, 21 Oct 2003 24:56:21 -0500". Its probably a good idea to change your date to adhere to the XML-RPC spec, found here: http://www.xml-rpc.com/specI just changed my RSS feed to one I got from Neil, but AFAIK, this is the date/time format that has always been used in MT. And I got bloglet updates after I installed the new RSS feed, I am pretty sure. Maybe not. I don't know. All I do not is I am fed up with this continuous bull from bloglet. Here is the deal: Bloglet likes (and the default MT template uses): [dc:date]2004-02-03T21:59:09-05:00[/dc:date] The official spec of RSS uses this: [pubDate]Tue, 03 Feb 2004 23:16:44 -0500[/pubDate] pubDate is the correct tag here. I should NOT have to use the Dublin Core if I do not want to. The Dublin Core is an extension of the spec, it is not the spec. So tell me people, which is better to use? pubDate or the DC tag?
updated Textile plugin (Brad Choate). removed default from "Delete Draft" confirmation sheet. Shortcut for "Delete" is now the delete key. Updated Japanese localization (Hiroshi Yamato). Updated French localization (Olivier Jan). Entry and draft data is written to disk before posting, to prevent accidental quitting. Main window can now be closed. %@ substitution now also occurs in closing tags (Textile compatibility). Other minor fixes.The two changes that stand out is the edition of the %@ substitution on the closing tags, and the saving of entry data before it is posted.
You cannot open the application "iTunes" because another user has it open. Ask the other user to quit the application, then try again. [OK]No, not OK. Should I mistakenly leave "my copy" of iTunes open and wander off for a bit, there's no music for anyone until my return. No music for you! Nobody but an administrator capable of killing off other logins and processes has the ability to rectify this situation. Should every user really need to be an administrator to truly share this multi-user environment? Bug or feature? If the former, it'd be a good one to squash. If the latter, why doesn't this feature appear in iPhoto or any of other apps (sans any DRM entanglements)? Source: raelity bytes There is a hack available, thanks to the good folks at MacOSXHints.

SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 25, 2004--Clear Channel Radio has suspended the broadcast of Viacom's Howard Stern show, consistent with its Responsible Broadcasting Initiative announced earlier today. After assessing the content of yesterday's Howard Stern show, Clear Channel worked with local market managers to take swift and decisive action.Source: Yahoo Finance So, can we expect to see a 5 second delay on the Howard Stern show now? UPDATE: 02/26/04 Howard Stern dropped from Clear Channel stations
"Clear Channel drew a line in the sand today with regard to protecting our listeners from indecent content and Howard Stern's show blew right through it," said John Hogan, president and CEO of Clear Channel Radio. "It was vulgar, offensive, and insulting, not just to women and African Americans but to anyone with a sense of common decency. We will not air Howard Stern on Clear Channel stations until we are assured that his show will conform to acceptable standards of responsible broadcasting," Hogan said.
LOS ANGELES, Feb 25 (Reuters) - Radio station giant Clear Channel Communications Inc. said on Wednesday it was dumping nationally syndicated shock jock Howard Stern from its stations under a new "zero tolerance" policy toward indecency.Be sure to read the 30+ comments on my post over at Blogcritics.org.
In dropping Stern from its six radio outlets that carry his show, Clear Channel (NYSE:CCU - News) cited his interview on Tuesday with Rick Salomon, the man who was filmed having sex with hotel heiress and TV reality star Paris Hilton in a video widely distributed on Internet porn sites.
Seeing as though I am not Jewish, I probably would not understand the sentiment of fear this movie allegedly engenders, BUT I have read some/partly/most of the Bible and from my understanding ~ SPOILER ALERT~ the movie is just like the Book.I too have read most of the Bible, and I am sure that this movie is pretty accurate to the Bible (joke). But as they say, the movie is never as good as the book, so we shall see. I plan on seeing The Passion this weekend sometime.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Internet infrastructure company VeriSign Inc.sued a domain-name oversight body Thursday, saying it had overstepped its authority when it prevented VeriSign from introducing new services.
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers has no authority to prevent VeriSign from rolling out a search engine for users who mistype Interent addressses, VeriSign said, as well another feature that allows users to sign up for a waiting list for desirable domain names
"This brazen attempt by ICANN to assume 'regulatory power' over VeriSign's business is a serious abuse of ICANN's technical coordination function," said VeriSign in the suit, which was filed in U.S. court in Los Angeles.
The balls that Verisign has! I wish they would die. DIE I SAY. I hate Verisign. First their marketing tactics pissed me off. Do you remember the sneeky, misleading mass mailings, trying to get people to move their domains to THEM even though your domain wasn't even close to expiring. I remember, I got one letter for each domain I owned at the time. Verisign did not make many people happy with those mailings, as a matter of fact they got a lot of flak about it.
ICANN, as far as I know, is a regulating body, and can kick Verisign's ass in the court room. And I hope they do. The best thing that VeriSign has done recently is sell Network Solutions (for which it should have never bought) and got out of the registrar business.
SiteFinder can go to hell (I have said that a lot) I have written a lot about this actually. I am adamant about my loathing for this SiteFinder feature.
