New Metallica Album Looking Good

May 15th, 2008 10:06pm No comments

Metallica’s 9th Studio album has been in the works for a while. Metallica has set up http://missionmetallica.com, which is an in the works preview of some parts of the album. Check out an mp3 I compiled below (which I pretty much ripped off MissionMetallica and shortened) of some new material in the works. I better not get sued, they’re like that…

Anyway, my point is that this is sounding more like Load and Reload, rather than the awful failure of St. Anger in 2003 which was just angry guitar and drum mashing. This actually has some killer riffs and old sounds to it and is awesome. I already have 2 lines of lyrics stuck in my head. It better not disappoint in September. Click play below:

Facebook Worm

May 1st, 2008 8:36pm No comments

First it was the AIM virus, then it was the MySpace friend hijack… It has finally happened – a Facebook worm that hijacks your computer and posts spam on your friends’ walls.

 

Fear not, Facebook has blocked people from making posts if it contains questionable content. Just because it is blocked on Facebook’s side does not mean your computer is not infected anymore. If the creator of this worm changes the message, it may activate again, or steal your password – you just never know.

Here are some tips if you are infected:

  • Change your Facebook password immediately. You don’t know if the malicious program doing this has stolen your password and sent it to someone.
  • NEVER click on the links in people’s spam posts. It probably contains a malicious script that uses an exploit in Windows to execute code that will infect your computer
  • Make sure you have all the latest operating system updates patches installed (Windows XP / Mac OSX Tiger or Leopard). Don’t ignore these. They are released to fix vulnerabilities that will stop problems like this from happening.
  • Update your Antivirus definitions and Antispyware definitions and run full scans
  • Come find me because I want to figure out what is causing this and create a removal application.
