  2. Bruce, You can get a current google page rank for 1.5 by using the Search Status extension. Oh, and thanks for the PM.
  3. Contratulations Madmancp, carbonize, Samrc and abinidi
  4. Giving gift cards seems so impersonal to me. I know it is an accepted form of giving but seems to take away from the spirit of gift giving. Part of the Christmas Season, for me, is making that list, going to the mall and finding that special something for someone.
  5. I haven't started. I'm one of those people that waits until the last second. If I just happen to see something that I think someone would like I will get it but its tooo early for me to start *shopping*.
  6. WORM_MYTOB.MX. This memory-resident worm spreads copies of itself as an attachment to email messages, which it sends to target addresses, using its own Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) engine. Through this SMTP engine, it is able to easily send the said email message even without using other mailing applications, such as Microsoft Outlook. The email message that it sends has the following details: From: (Spoofed) Subject: (any of the following) ? DETECTED Online User Violation ? Important Notification ? MEMBERS SUPPORT ?

It searches for available shared folders within the network and attempts to drop copies of itself into these shares. It also generates random IP addresses and attempts to drop copies of itself into the said addresses' default shares. It uses the account details of the currently logged user to gain access to password-protected shares. It has backdoor capabilities, which enable a remote malicious user to perform commands on the affected system, thus compromising system security. It runs on Windows NT, 2000, and XP.

  8. As of November 21, 2005 2:20 PM Pacific Standard Time (PST, GMT -8:00), a Medium Risk Virus Alert was declared to control the spread of WORM_SOBER.AG. There have been several infection reports indicating that this malware is spreading in the USA, Belgium, Canada, Brazil, and New Zealand. This memory-resident worm propagates by attaching a copy of itself to an email message, which it sends to target recipients using its own Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) engine. Since it's email propagation does not require any user intervention, the user is often unaware that this worm is sending out email messages. The email it sends out has the following details: From: {Email address generated by this worm} Subject: (any of the following) • hi,_ive_a_new_mail_address • Mail delivery failed • Registration Confirmation • smtp mail failed • Spam: Registration Confirmation • Your Password • Your IP was logged • Paris_Hilton_&_Nicole_Richie • You visit illegal websites Message body: (any of the following) hey its me, my old address dont work at time. i dont know why?! in the last days ive got some mails. i' think thaz your mails but im not sure! plz read and check ... cyaaaaaaa --- This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

Attachment: (any of the following) • mailtext.zip • mail.zip • reg_pass.zip • mail.zip • reg_pass-data.zip • question_list.zip • list.zip • downloadm • mail_body.zip The attached .ZIP file contains the copy of this worm using the following file name: File-packed_dataInfo.exe When executed, it displays a fake error message box in order to trick a user into thinking that the file did not properly execute. This worm searches the process list of the affected system for mrt.exe, the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool process. If found, it terminates the said process thus making the system more vulnerable to malicious attacks.
  9. Much faster than the last couple of weeks. Great job. Thanks

    This is for all the golfers According to St. Titleist................ May thy ball lie in green pastures and not in still waters. - author unknown The only time my prayers are never answered is on the golf course. - Billy Graham Golf appeals to the idiot and the child in us. Just how childlike golfers become is proven by their frequent inability to count past five. - John Updike It is almost impossible to remember how tragic a place the world is when one is playing golf. - Robert Lynd If profanity had an influence on the flight of the ball, the game of golf would be played far better than it is. - Horace G. Hutchinson They say golf is like life, but don't believe them. Golf is more complicated than that. - Gardner Dickinson If a lot of people gripped a knife and fork the way they do a golf club, they'd starve to death. - Sam Snead Golf is a day spent in a round of strenuous idleness. - William Wordswroth If you drink, don't drive. Don't even putt. - Dean Martin If you are going to throw a club, it is important to throw it ahead of you, down the fairway, so you don't have to waste energy going back to pick it up. - Tommy Bolt Man blames fate for other accidents, but feels personally responsible when he makes a hole in one. - author unknown I don't say my golf game is bad, but if I grew tomatoes they'd come up sliced. - Bob Hope My handicap? Woods and irons. - Chris Codiroli The ardent golfer would play Mount Everest if somebody would put a flag stick on top. - Pete Dye If you think it's hard to meet new people, try picking up the wrong golf ball. - Jack Lemmon It's good sportsmanship to not pick up lost golf balls while they are still rolling. - Mark Twain Don't play too much golf.

  11. Researchers have discovered two new variants of the notorious BAGLE family of worms. Although WORM_BAGLE.BQ and WORM_BAGLE.BS have not caused a high number of infections, they are utilizing a relatively new technique – adding a downloader between the Trojan and worm components as part of a “tri-component” technique – which enables a far more dynamic spreading mechanism and a higher potential for damage. Although security experts first saw this technique in mid-September with a series of other BAGLE variants, its re-emergence suggests that this could become more prominent – and destructive – in the future. According to Jamz Yaneza, Senior Research Engineer at Trend Micro, the URLs to which the code points are continuously changing to prevent the downloader from being detected. “At times they appear to be down, then they are brought back up again. This appears to give the author enough time to repack the code, thereby modifying the identifying file,” he said. Security experts warn that these new variants could possibly mark the beginning of a concerning trend. A future variant with a slightly better refined propagation technique – including the use of a packer with polymorphic capabilities and utilizing an established Bot network – could lead to a significant number of infections.
