HTML/FRAMER virus alert from AVG

Published in Security, Virus by 3Monkeys | 162 comments »

I found the HTML/FRAMER virus had infected this site. It has been eradicated!

For those interested, the following code (commented for security) was inserted into the main index (index.php) by some hacker. For those of you with WordPress blogs I suggest you check you index.php file, the malicious code is inserted at the end on index.php. Other forms of the virus encode the iframe attack.

The iPhone: Crack for Geeks

Published in iphone by 3Monkeys | 48 comments »

I actually tried to start this post from my new iPhone, but apparently there are a few problems with the WordPress editor running on the device.

I was in a day long conference today. My iPhone usage (as recorded by the usage meter on the iPhone itself) is at almost 6 hours since the last full charge (this morning). I did a supplementary charge this evening for about 1 hour while I was giving demos on my laptop. But, all in all, I spent most of the day emailing, surfing and talking. Now this was a little difficult because I was attending a conference and had to attend to my commitments there as well. But every chance I had to check the latest baseball scores or my email, I was pulling out the iPhone. I even made or took half a dozen phone calls.

I am admittedly a computer geek, but in the past have found myself in situations were I was unable to use a computer effectively. Things like being in a conference without a solid internet connection or on a plane for 3 hours limited my access to either real time or interesting content. The iPhone has practically eliminated this gap. Even on the plane trip to San Jose, I was able to shut the iPhone off and still listen to hours of podcast from ESPN and NASA. Speaking of which, leading up to my most recent trip, I downloaded nearly 8 gigabytes of podcast to listen to and/or watch. While this will be more than enough to keep me entertained for the next month, I was able to hit the capacity limit for my iPhone much sooner than I ever thought I would.

What do I find wrong with the iPhone? First, the volume. With my last phone I could hear it ring, (and my co-workers as well) from three states away. That is saying alot since I live in Texas not Rhode Island or Connecticut where the distance between states is approximately the distance between my home and my work, but more like a 2 hour plane ride. This probably makes my co-workers happy, but I tend to miss more calls on my new iPhone, unless I’m actively using it and the call interrupts my current action. (Does anyone know of a hack to increase the ring volume on the iPhone?) The second major problem with the iPhone is the lack of Flash ability. There are several web applications I use that are flash based. I have to wait to get to my laptop to check these type of apps.

Well, all in all, this was probably my most arsine post, but I felt I need a little venting and so… I will write a few more post regarding specific detail regarding the iPhone at a later date. I just needed a seg way for those post. This is it … I guess. Don’t pay any attention to the man behind the curtain.

Until next time….
