Cryptowall takes over my computer

Cryptowall takes over my computer

So….. Turns out the NHS, Fedex and a number of other companies and organisations have been hit by this same Ransomwear virus. According to Avast, (who I use), there have been infections in 99 countries in the last 2 days. Apparently, the NHS are still using windows XP on their computers. A 12 year old operating system. Windows stopped patching XP on April 8, 2014. That means it’s a sitting duck for systems using XP. On my cloudflare account, most…

Most WordPress hacking attempts come from Russia

Most WordPress hacking attempts come from Russia

I’m not sure what happened over the last 10 days. The statistics attacks on my wp-admin file, (accessed through the wp-login), speak for themselves. As you can see, the traffic from Russia curbs off sharply, whilst the hits remain consistent.

Youtube HaCk3d

Surprise. Went to go on youtube this afternoon, check for outlandish videos to pass the time. The site had been hacked. (It’s nice to know they are running Plesk, which is what they use on my web server). Muslimist No doubt, my first thoughts turn to the Muslimists and the media furor surrounding their little movement. Also, Kim Jong Un, who’s always in an angry state. Maybe someone hit the wrong button. But it’s strange, the ‘favicon’ is still showing…

Improving World Of Warcraft Disconnect (WOW DC) problems

Improving World Of Warcraft Disconnect (WOW DC) problems

For many people Disconnect is a major problem in Warcraft. DC interrupts at random, and often crucial moments of play. ‘Oh I DC’ed’ being is a common, lame, excuse for players who die in inexcusable circumstances. Don’t be a lamer! Up until 2008 I used Norton Antivirus. A product I had used since my first computer in 1997. A ten year stint which came to an abrupt end following the 2008 suite. To reduce in-game DC in Warcraft I suggest…
