Noah Everett – Founder of Twitpic Arrested #update

By |2017-02-08T01:20:37+01:00June 29th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , |

  Bit of gossip for you ....... Noah Everett who founded Twitpic the media sharing site,  tweeted from his twitter account today that he had been arrested and was in the back of the cop car and even posted a twitpic of it. He tweeted later that he got a ride home as he couldn't walk down the street half naked, I'm assuming he just had his top off as he does like a pose. :)  I've seen reports that said he was actually naked, this clearly isn't what he put said on his twitter account. The picture he posted on twitter was supposedly proof of him in the backseat of a police car looking out towards the windscreen and a laptop - and it has now had 46k views, but people don't know what it is or what is going on. There  has been no confirmed reports of the "arrest", but he's sure attracted a lot of attention from his  2,799,198 followers! Interested to see what he says next, maybe I'm just nosy :) Update: Earlier Noah confirmed on Twitter, that he was in fact [...]

We've been waiting for this from Google for a long time, since the speculations (inside information) around SXSW in March came out about Google circles. We thought then it was just going to be Google circles that was to take on Facebook but The Google+ project looks much bigger than we thought circles would ever be.

By |2017-02-08T01:20:38+01:00June 28th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , |

Hackers Lutz Security announced their final release at the weekend, after 50 days of disruption for various corporations and governments and even Joe blogs on occasion. Their final day of tweets on the 26th of June were these.... Lulz statement "50 days of Lulz"  inform us that it was a planned 50 days of uninterrupted, chaotic thrill of entertainment and anarchy.  And that they believe that they have brought back the AntiSec movement that started in 1999, which they truly believe in. The Anti Security Movement (also written as antisec and anti-sec) is a movement opposed to the computer security industry. It attempts to censor the publication of information relating to but not limited to: software vulnerabilities, exploits, exploitation techniques,hacking tools, attacking public outlets and distribution points of that information. Movement followers have cited websites such asSecurityFocus, Securiteam, PacketStormSecurity, and milw0rm to be targets of their cause, as well as mailing lists like "full-disclosure", "vuln-dev", "vendor-sec" and Bugtraq, as well as public forums and IRC channels. During lulz  last days they released documents stolen from the Arizona Department of Public Safety and files that contain internal data from AOL and a variety [...]

Facebook clickjacking Scam – Boy reaction after his Ex-girlfriend posted

By |2017-02-08T01:20:38+01:00June 27th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , |

Photo by Darkpatator There is another click-jacking scam similar to other scams we've seen recently. The link comes up as a message in your Facebook news-feed informing you that one of your friends liked this link. (Oh so it must be true then) Not! The first warning should be that there is a picture of a naked woman and a baby? Boy reaction after his Ex Girlfriend posted on his wall With a blogspot link lol what true pain both are having at this moment When you click the link you are taken to an advertising page, which apparently has a video on it.  When you try to play the video, it makes you like the page and it pops up an online survey. And so the scam cycle starts again....... its posted to your friend's walls saying you like it. Another similar one seen recently is one that promises to show you a video of Marika Fruscio during an embarressing moment, which seems to be her top falling down showing one boob. Wow how exciting is that! ... seriously, that's worse than the big bum scam. [...]

Twitter Viagra scam DM spreading fast

By |2017-02-08T01:20:38+01:00June 24th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , |

There is a new Phishing scam or spam DM spreading quickly around Twitter at the moment,  seemingly a direct message that is sent from your friend  says...... (or similar) "I got huge discounts on Viagra, cialis and more, no prescription needed." This is what twitter are saying ........ I didn't click the link myself so I'm not sure where the link takes you, although hopefully Google chrome would have warned me as it is pretty secure. However....... Please don't click it, as it will be DM'ed to many of your followers - and this will keep it alive! I personally, never click any links that are DM'd to me, without knowing about it first.  They are either spam or self promotions, both of which should not be in my DM box. If there is something to say @ me -  If I do get something I am not sure of - I ask the sender if they meant to send it, on this occasion I asked as a joke as why would someone send me something about Viagra :) If you have clicked [...]
