How to Fish for Phishing Sites

F-Secure had a nice little post on finding phishing sites, sites that masquerade as other sites in hopes of getting you to “login”, allowing them to collect your login info, they usually then send you to the real site, where you have to login again, for the first time.

Phishing sites are easy to locate once the bad boys start spamming out thousands of mails linking to their site. But how can such sites be found before that?

Here’s an example.

You can subscribe to alert services that will let you know when a new domain with certain keywords has been registered. Domaintools is one such service. Source: How to locate new phishing sites

They include some screen shots, and other things to look for. They also noted in another post, how lots of sites are actually flash sites, to make it harder for anti-phishing tools to detect them.

We’ve now seen several phishing web sites that are using flash-based content instead of normal HTML. Probably the main to reason to do this is to try to avoid phishing toolbars that analyze page content.

Two recent examples, both targeting PayPal: www.ppal-form-ssl.com and www.welcome-ppl.com. Source: Flash Phishing

Gears of War Tips

If you’ve been good this year and asked Santa Claus for it, you may find Gears of War under the Christmas tree this Christmas, and if you are like most people, you are just going to jump in online and try to kick some butt. But, you may have a rough time as some gamers have been playing it for a few months. I know my 13 year old boy Davey will be one of them, good thing he doesn’t read my stuff online, and Gamerscoreblog is here to help with some Gears of War Tips.

I wanted to give a few tips to the newbs/newbies/n00bs that I’ve picked up through my matches online. Hopefully these tips will help you guys get over some of the initial learning curve.

Teamwork is key: Stick together, and use voice-chat to update teammates as to which weapons you have, and where you see enemies. Don’t be a hero and run off by yourself or you will quickly get killed, and your teammates will be mad at you.

Initial dash: Most matches start off with a mad-dash to the weapons. During this time, plant your strategy (who’s getting which weapon, what routes will you attack, etc) If you don’t know the maps, tell your teammates that, and follow someone else until you learn them. Source: Getting Gears of War Soon? Newbies Listen Up!

That’s just a coupe of the tips listed, click here for the rest. A couple more comments included, stay away from the shrubbery and watch out for that train. I can’t wait to try it out, which reminds me, I still need to get another controller.

Be sure to check out all of the Video Game Reviews we have added to our video section. Lots of great reviews from Gamespot. Here is one for Gears of War.

From the Compaq FAQ: Where’s the Any Key?

This is the real FAQ from Compaq. Ahh, users, thank God for em.

The term “any key” does not refer to a particular key on the keyboard. It simply means to strike any one of the keys on your keyboard or handheld screen.

From Compaq via digg.

How to Backup the Music on Your iPod

Apple has added some new and very welcome features in iTunes version 7, one at least they didn’t allow before. Previously they would not let you sync your iPod with more than one computer, sure I know it was possible, my 12 year old did it with several of his friends, but it wasn’t supported. Now, you can reverse sync and they are pushing it as a feature. Say you have a home pc and your iPod already synced, now you can take it to your work pc and sync it up with your iPod, but it only works with music and videos purchased from iTunes.

Here is the new big feature:
You can now backup the music from your iPod straight to CD or DVD.

iTunes 7 has really breathed some new life into that venerable jukebox software. One of the most useful new features is ‘Back Up to Disc,’ which is located under the ‘File’ menu of iTunes. This feature allows you to back up all your tracks to either CD or DVD.

Sounds great, right? But is it easy? Yes, yes it is. Read on for a detailed step by step tutorial.

Once you click the ‘Back up to disk..’ option you get this window:

Visit The Unofficial Apple Weblog for the complete set of instructions.
