MSY Hacked! Firefox blocks!

July 15th, 2008 No comments

MSY(.com.au – dont go there yet!), one of the most competitive IT hardware stores in Australia recently got hacked and the site has embedded Net-Worm.JS.Aspxor.a worm. Only realised after I went to the site and Firefox blocked the page. You can read all about the hack and the effects on the Whirlpool Thread or Google Safe Browsing diagnostic page.

Firefox Security

Its always nice when someones got your back. Who knows MSY might actually endup making a proper website now instead of the messy FrontPage site that was.

Ubuntu 8.04.1 LTS Released

July 4th, 2008 No comments

Ubuntu 8.04 was released when I was in Japan, but it didnt stop me from downloading it – sucked it up at ~5Mbps which was bloody ridiculous!

Now we can finally get our hands on the first update to this LTS, Ubuntu 8.04.1 which contains – amongst a slew of bug-fixed packages – Firefox 3.0 Final. More information on the changes are posted on the Ubuntu mailing list release notification.

I’m still running 7.10 on the server at home – until I get the bawls (and time!) to redo the lovely server ZEUS has become to be! In the meantime, my Dell M1330 is upgrading to the 8.04.1 release as I write.

Grab a copy of Ubuntu 8.04.1 today!

On a side note, just recently saw the release of Sabayon Linux 3.5 which brings some really cool things to the table, I’ve downloaded the LiveDVD and considering giving it a go.

Like Christmas in July, but in June – WINE 1.0 and Firefox 3.0 Released!

June 18th, 2008 1 comment

Well I’m still living it up in Japan (the fifth extension to my stay here!) but today marks an important day for the release of two very cool applications I’ve learnt to love and never live without.

Firefox 3.0 has finally been released after a long development cycle and with that WINE 1.0, 15 years in the making but as they say, the best Wine matures with age, and WINE certainly has matured! Not to forget, Opera has also released Opera 9.50.

Cheers!
