Mozilla browser flaw!
Written by Aidan

Those with Mozilla, Firefox or Thunderbird installed on their machines should look at getting their browsers and mail clients patched! Hot on the heals of the problems with IE comes a problem with the Mozilla browsers and mail client. The problem only affects Windows, and could just about allow an attacker to run a program that's already on the machine.

However, the folks over at Mozilla have produced a patch already, so you need not panic. Instead, point your browser over to Mozilla's site to pick up the patch.
water done properly... well sort of.

Patti posted: Anyone interested in keeping their cell phone numbers private may want to check this out.....


"Today cell phone numbers are private. That will soon change because the cell phone industry is preparing to launch the first 411 directory of cell phone numbers.  And it's the cell phone companies themselves who are writing the rules for how and when your cell phone number will be made public.  

You should have the choice to list your cell phone number, but industry-written rules don't guarantee you'll have that choice.  Legislation pending in Congress will give us control over listing our cell numbers and prohibit charging for unlisted numbers.  

But Congress has to act fast before the industry directory is rolled out later this year. Fill out the form below to tell Congress to give us control of our cell numbers and keep companies from charging us for unlisted numbers." Consumers Union

IE Patched? Well, sort of!

Microsoft recently released a patch for the "SCOB" virus. This patch closed the hole in IE basically by disabling ADODB streams. This was enough to ensure that the ADODB hole could no longer be exploited by trojans and viruses.

However, Kuperus and http-equiv did a little bit of work, and demonstrated the Microsoft's patch is hardly the panacea everyone really needs. They found that by simply choosing a different ActiveX control, they had a working exploit once again!

Alex has publically stated on the MBM homepage that he is going to terminate development for Motherboard Monitor. Alex gives a number of reasons, including the fact that companies are no longer willing to provide information on their sensors. When you're trying to read the sensors, it's rather hard if the manufacturer won't tell you how to.

For more information, read the MBM homepage.
