There are a few commands you need to know to be able to enjoy the chat at alamak.

Pro-Tibet supporters targetted by Malware

Internet users downloading pro-Tibet content are being targeted by cybercriminals for the second time in a fortnight.

The latest attack consists of a key-logging application which uses a rootkit to hide itself on users' Windows PCs. According to researchers at IT security vendor MacAfee.

he malware appears to be sending users' keystrokes to a computer in China.

The malware is hidden in a Flash animation that pokes fun at a Chinese Olympic competitor. But as users play the clip, the Trojan downloads the rootkit and keylogging software to their PCs. The malware is being distributed as an email, RaceForTibet.exe, McAfee found.

It is the second such attack in just a few days. Last week, hackers placed the "Fribet" Trojan on a number of pro-Tibet websites. That exploited a vulnerability in Windows.

According to Dave Marcus, security research and communications manager at McAfee's Avert Labs, the attacks are part of a wider trend for cybercriminals to exploit interest in the Olympics and other current affairs events to distribute malware.

Businesses should warn their computer users about the risks of downloading media files or playing media files contained in unsolicited emails, cautioned Bill Nagel, security researcher at industry analysts Forrester.

Most business-grade anti-virus applications will have been updated to detect the Trojans, he said, and company systems should block users from downloading attachments containing executable code, or .exe files.

"If not, attacks of this kind can be a problem, mostly because rootkits are so difficult to remove," he said.

"Businesses might even have to re-image their computers' hard drives to get rid of the rootkit. Media files have become a very popular way of distributing malware. We had the [Anna] Kournikova Trojan a few years ago... the malware authors try to make their content as attractive as possible. Anything to do with the Olympics is going to reach a wide audience."

IT departments should remind users to be watch out for downloads with executable files attached, he added.

Solution for Error 678- Fix it

According to Microsoft, error 678 mostly occurs in Windows XP service pack 2 users. The cause is very vague and almost unknown. Some say its because of faulty modem-computer interaction, some say its due to pure computer problem. I use BSNL DataOne broadband service as it is one of the most trusted broadband providers in India. It is very fast and reliable. But, few days back, I started getting 'error 678' and I could not login. The error message says "Error 678: The remote computer did not respond". I called to almost all the related officials at BSNL broadband office. Even they responded well and did everything they could to help me out. But no one actually knew what the problem was.

They had my computer, modem, username and password checked. My modem worked well- It connects to the internet with other accounts. My computer was in perfect condition too. My computer connected to the net with other Internet service providers on the same modem. It became almost impossible to figure out what the reason for this error was. Assistant engineers at the BSNL office were assisting me to get the connection back. But in vain. At last, a senior Engineer suggested doubtfully to change the port and check again. So the Assistant engineer who was working on this at the BSNL exchange, shifted the port and my account connected fantastically. I brought the modem back and connected to my computer and logged o with my username and password and it connected very well.
So the etiology for this problem is unknown but the solution is to change the port. So, if you tried all possible solutions which Microsoft suggested to fix Error 678 and if none of them worked then ask your service providers to change the port.
