Messing with Script Kiddies

January 15th, 2009

Starting the first week in January, I started noticing my personal server getting pounded with requests looking for roundcube or mantis installs on my system. After doing a bit of research at the Internet Storm Center I realized it was a new vulneribility in these programs and these script kiddies were just scanning servers for […]

iPhone 2.2 Jailbreakers, free up space from previous Jailbreaks!

November 26th, 2008

I noticed that after my upgrade and reinstalling my apps I was missing a huge chunk of my free space. I got to investigating and noticed that every folder in /private/var/stash was duplicated!  It appeared as though it still had my old folder from the first upgrade on there… as well as the newly made […]

So Long iGoogle!

October 22nd, 2008

It’s been almost a week now and iGoogle still has no option of reverting.  It is still loading slow and the new way their “widgets” load is fucking terrible. As of today I am changing my home page on all of my machines at work and home.  I refuse to use a home page that […]

Apparently with a recent “security” update pushed out by Microsoft, it now causes ANY file you download from the internet and try and open to pop up with a security warning like this one: Good LORD this has got to be the most OBNOXIOUS WINDOWS UPDATE EVER.  What on god’s green Earth was Microsoft thinking […]

July 28th, 2008

If you are running Windows Vista and have installed Service Pack 1 (SP1), you can gain around 800mb of disk space back. When you install SP1, it backs up all the files in case you want to remove SP1.  But chances are pretty good that once you have SP1 installed you really have no reason […]

Vista File Extension Manager (Mounting ISO Revision)

July 24th, 2008

In my article here I showed you how to make ISO, BIN, and other CD/DVD Image files mountable by simply double clicking them in Vista. To accomplish this I used a tool call Creative Elements Power Tools.  It worked fine for what I was doing at the time. Fastfoward 45 days or more later… I […]
