Today was fun because I got bored and hacked AIM. If you use the right editor, you open up the AimRes.dll file and edit it to have a custom login image. Anyway, here is what my AIM looks like. And its not a screenshot that’s edited… I can prove it.
WARNING. DO NOT CLICK ON A LINK IN SOMEONE’S AIM PROFILE THAT SAYS “Whoaaa….look at what I found, click here” or “WWW.REALPHX.COM”
This is a virus spread through AIM – specifically Trojan.Sinkin. It collects your passwords, changes your Internet Explorer homepage, causes loads of popups and adds a link to your AIM Profile. When people click on this link, they are taken to a website. An install on demand box appears. If the user clicks YES, they have the virus. If they user clicks NO, it keeps looping you back to that Install On Demand dialogue box, tricking you into clicking YES. WHATEVER YOU DO NEVER CLICK YES. If you are in this jam, press control alt delete and close Internet Explorer.
There used to be a way to easily remove the virus. However, the virus evolved and the properties changed, so there is no known way to remove it yet. I will post the information as soon as I find out. In the meantime, use antivirus software that’s up to date.
The RIAA has gone too far with these lawsuits. First of all there are tens of millions of Americans sharing files on networks. Trying to sue every one will not accomplish anything. When you have mass copyright infringement, you can’t stop it. If three people were doing it, that’s a different story. These greedy bastards want every record sale and decide to sue people for distributing music. But in their haste, what do they do? Sue 12 year old girls. Instead of worrying about catching druggies, terrorists and criminals, they sue 12 year olds for something that isn’t causing trouble to anyone. Meanwhile, there’s four Arabs loose in this country planning to terrorize. Yet, we worry about file sharing. Priorities people.
See, this lawsuit business was thought up by some clown because record sales dropped. Did those idiots consider that the economy’s in a depression, any maybe people aren’t spending as much? No, the immediately blame file sharing. I’ll bet the children of these people download music themselves. What nonsense. DO NOT BE AFRAID.
Netcraft.com is a handy website that checks different sites and tells you what they are hosted on.
Why is Microsoft.com hosted on Linux??? Shows you how much they trust their new product: Windows Server 2003. HA, what a joke.
