Conficker April 1st - April Fools Virus

When you first bought your computer (workstation) or your laptop, did you set your Automatic Updates to install Microsoft Security Updates daily?

Did you install anti-virus software and download updates daily?

If you have not done it lately, it's highly recommended to download the latest Windows Security Updates and run anti-virus live update for your workstation. This is to minimize risk of exposure, patch vulnerabilty and close known exploit. This coming April 1st, April fools day a virus known as The Conficker Worm will start attacking computers connected to the network and Internet. I don't know the attack pattern, in the past the attacker created a botnet to disabled known website through Destributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Attack. The method of attack might be different as they know that most businesses added security measures against this type of attack.
This is the time to run Windows Update, update your antibot software, and update your anti-virus software.

Here's ho…

.ECO - A new waste of money

I'm reading one article in Popsci website about the proposal for .ECO domain extension. I share the same personal view with this new extension. It cost me more money to keep my brand.

"The point being: there is no point. These extraneous TLDs -- the proposed ".eco" domain included -- succeed only in confusing users and bilking Web site owners out of an additional $30-$50 each (if they even bother with them at all). In order for ".eco" and similar TLDs to gain widespread acceptance, there needs to be some kind of standardization in the way they're used. For example, if you type in "Google.jobs," you're simply redirected to the Google homepage. But if you type in "CareerBuilder.jobs," you're taken to the section of the CareerBuilder site that deals with employment opportunities specific to the CareerBuilder organization. The latter makes a lot of sense. If users expected to reach the human resources department of a given compan…

Test Drive Cloud Computing - using Mozy.com service free version.

This is a continuation of cloud computing blog that was posted here.

To test drive cloud computing services, I need to open an account. To find out if this is good for my personal online backup or for business use only. I need to have an account but I don't need to spend money ($) for evaluation. This is the only reason, I started using Mozy.com free version for my test drive.

I registered and created my account. I have to fill up a simple registration process e.g. entering my email address, type in my password, year of birth and answer few survey questions. Check your email for confirmation, click the link to confirm and ready to download the software to your workstation.

I go to my temp folder, where I downloaded the file for my Vista workstation. Double click on the exe file and click run to install the program to your workstation. It will take a few minutes to complete the install. I continue to click accepting the default install. Click on Finish to launch Mozyhome Configuration…

Cloud Computing are you ready for this service as entrepreneur or for your business?

I know on top my head Microsoft Live and Google provides software as a service (SaaS) to the public. I am using Google Applications services for my email, calendar, and sharing documents on the fly. Meaning I can share any documents (word, excel and powerpoint) to any users that has email address which almost everybody has one. They can view or edit the document through their web browser in real-time, no need to save on their workstation. This is perfect to anyone always on the go, not leaving any documents in your home pc for later access.

I haven't use Microsoft Live service, I have no idea how this work (maybe one of our readers will share their experience). So, I will introduce Google Apps to you which I am using since beta release. I'm saving my documents, word, excel and powerpoint presentation using my own email address @KING.NET. Sharing these documents to anyone in the world for review or corrections. I can easily remove permission when we finalized the documents. The …

More Security Loopholes Found In Google Docs

If you're heavily using Google Docs (just like me) for sharing documents, you need to read this article from TechCrunch.com. The current issue is related to sharing documents, embedded pictures and archiving your documents. For details, continue reading the article.

"Security consultant Ade Barkah checked in with us to alert us to a couple of serious security issues associated to Google Docs, the web-based office software from the world’s most famous search engine company, giving a whole new meaning to its mission to make the world’s information universally accessible. On his blog on software, infrastructure and security, Barkah outlines no less than three issues that he discovered while investigating some potential security lapses." (2009, TechCrunch.com)

Final Notice of Domain Notification - MyBusinessAddress.com (sample)

I received this unsolicited email from Domain Notice asking me to complete and return by fax a form regarding notification for my business address (MyBusinessAddress.com) search engine subscriptions. Click the image on your left side to see the actual message. According to the email, this is a courtesy reminder to register my domain name search engine listing so my customers can locate me on the web. I guess I have to send them a post card.

This is why I have my domain name, I am using my email address @KING.NET to let them know how to get in touch with me.

And the email has this notice, it will expire on this date (today)! Laugh out load.

Google, Yahoo, MSN and other related search engine add your website for free. Why bother spending $75 for 1 year, $119 for 2 years, $199 for 5 years and $295 for 10 years.

How to set your Firewall (or Router) to allow NAT to Open and having the availability to connect multiple consoles.

If you are trying to fix NAT connection problem with your Xbox Live, you come to the right place (well I provide other informations IT-related). It took me a while to resolve this on my own, with the help of reading some articles as noted here.


For this article, I will use my router device (also my wireless, gateway and firewall) Motorola SBG900 for my example.

Configure your Router. You need to login to your router (or firewall) and add the following ports needed to run Xbox Live. These are TCP 80, UDP 88, UDP/TCP 3074, UDP/TCP 53, UDP 1900, and TCP 5000. The 80 and 53 are needed anyway. The port 80 is for browsing the Internet and 53 for resolving the DNS information. The ports 88 and 3074 are port Xbox Live prots. Enable Universal Plag N Play (UPnP). Some router device configuration have an easy way to enable it. If you don't have this feature, you need to add port UDP 1900 and TCP 5000 to enable support of UPnP frameworks.NAT Open. You need to add entry for port fowarding to all…

How to undock Dell Latitude D410?

Early this morning I'm working with one of our laptop in the office. It's been a while since the last time I've used the docking station for a laptop. Before I go on with my story, let me give you a link about docking station so you know what I'm referring to.

So I place my Dell Latitude D410 in the docking station to test the DVD drive. When I about to remove it, I have no idea how to get it done. I focus on pushing the button in the left side of the docking station but no success. I told myself, I don't need a brain surgery to figure this out.

Well, 10 minutes later I'm still looking a way to get it done. Hmm, search the Internet for information but most links I've clicked are all about Dell specifications and promotional links. This is the reason I wrote this blog, to help other techie out there to get the answer right away.

To find the answer of my own. I've used my hands to slide on all sides and viola. I've found the un-latch lever that nicely b…

Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 available for download March 19 at 9am Pacific Time.

Microsoft release availability of Internet Explorer 8.0 at the company's MIX09 conference and available for download at 9am Pacific Time March 19.

I'm so excited of this release so I went to read the features of IE 8. Well some of the text still pointing to Internet Explorer 7.0 hmmm.. Anyway, let's explore the features that will benefit us as a users.
Tabbed browsing. I saw this already in IE 7.0 released. I haven't explore much about Quick Tabs and Tab Groups. I wanted to see in IE 8.0 to drag and drop to another open browser just like the Google Chrome. I have nothing to share for Instant Search Box, RSS Feeds, Favorites, etc. I think this should be part of standard internet explorer.Dynamic Security Protection. ActiveX opt-in is a good addition to prompt users options to install it. I suggest to disable it, you can go back and activate this feature from the Add-on Manager. The Phishing Filter is definitely a good feature to protect you against potential or known frau…

Microsoft PubCenter is coming soon.

No one stopping Microsoft PubCenter (upcoming competitor of Google Adsense), though still in beta stage. Some tipster already saw increase in revenue. I'm only assuming that Microsoft is giving a higher revenue share. To encourage existing adsense users to use the Microsoft PubCenter is to offer them a higher revenue share. For example 70/30 or 80/20, 80% revenue share goes to the publishers and the remaining 20% for Microsoft.

"We are getting reports that Microsoft’s PubCenter, a self serve thirty party ad publishers platform through AdCenter, is doing quite well with beta testers. Microsoft began testing PubCenter last summer.

One beta tester we spoke with said PubCenter is paying significantly more than Google AdSense and Yahoo Publisher. All three of these programs let third party publishers add contextual ads next to their content via a self-service format.

Google has dominated this space in the past (and all other contextual advertising) because it offers publishers higher…

REDC Acquires Domain Name Auction.com for $1.7M

I managed some domain names for personal and business use. Once in a while, I received offers to my domains which I don't have plan of selling it anytime soon. For a couple of days, I'm received unsolicited emails from different email addresses but with the same contents.

Here's an example of email.

Hello,
I came across your domain name KING.NET (as example) and I would be interested in buying it from you. Here is my offer, you have to send me a professional appraisal from one of the following companies and I will pay you 85% of the appraise price.

For payments under $2000 I prefer to use paypal. And for larger amounts of money I prefer if we used escrow.com.

Who said Toyota Prius is ugly? Check Next-Gen 2010 Toyota Prius will get 50 mpg.

"The 2010 Prius debuted today in Detroit and, well, it's a new Prius. But it's also a little bit more in a lot of little ways. First, if all you care about is mileage, the number you need to know is a combined rating of 50 mpg, based on Toyota's own internal testing. That bump in MPGs (up from 46 in the current model) comes from a larger and more powerful 1.8-liter Atkinson-cycle, four-cylinder engine. That may sound counterintuitive, but Toyota's press release (pasted after the jump) is prepared for that, and says that the higher torque means lower rpm on the highway. And the highway is where hybrids don't exactly shine." (2009, Autobloggreen.com)
