Filtering out Ads with a Proxy using SafeSquid Proxy Server

Thursday, October 23rd, 2008

I just ran across this good how-to on replacing ads using a proxy server (in this case safesquid). A proxy server is a piece of software that requests web pages for other machines and then passes the pages along to the other computers. When the server requests a page it’s possible to make alterations and [...]

Voiceshot – Easy Way to Get a Message Out – Automated Message Calling

Monday, March 24th, 2008

We’ve all received them…. “robocalls”. Usually they fall into a couple categories…. 1) doctors appointment reminders and 2) political campaign ads and 3) telemarketers. Items 2 and three annoy me to no end. In hotly contested elections we have easily received several robocalls a day from each side for a decent stretch. These types of [...]

Saturday, January 5th, 2008

I know, you’ve seen the ads – make $6000 a week in your spare time!! Make money doing the things you do ANYWAY, like reading email, browsing the web. The last week or so as things have been slow (and technically I was still “on vacation” until the 3rd of January). I had plenty of [...]

Privacy concerns abound…

Tuesday, September 5th, 2006

Well, the weekend saw news stories of Google planning to eavesdrop over pc microphones to hear what you’re watching on tv to target ads….. (I’m not holding my breath on that one, but… I do know how to disconnect the microphone.) Also, there was the story of Browzar which was supposedly THE solution for private [...]

For those of you that aren’t aware…. Bleeding Snort is a collection of “bleeding edge” snort signatures. Snort is an intrusion detection framework. This note is by way of SARC that the bleedingsnort.org domain is now no longer under their control. bleedingsnort.com is and continues to be their official domain. Unfortunately it appears as though [...]

Google search for malware accessible to all…

Tuesday, July 18th, 2006

The metasploit project is now hosting a malware search that uses Google. It essentially uses a binary google search technique that was referenced last week to find malicious files hosted on the web. Of course, this will be partly limited by Google’s indexing which recently has not been quite as thorough as before, but… all [...]

Firefox Sync plugin

Thursday, June 8th, 2006

Google has released a new plugin for firefox that synchronizes various settings from one pc to another making use of a google account. Essentially, it saves certain preferences from your browser to your Google account, then when the browser is launched again it retrieves any changes from the Google Account. This sounds like a great [...]

The Google Problem Part 2

Tuesday, May 16th, 2006

If you know me…. you know I have a HARD time putting down a problem that’s unsolved. Even if it’s a problem that really doesn’t have a solution (in my control at least)… I have a tendency to look and analyze, turn it over and try and find out as much as I can about [...]

Clickbot – new bot tactic…

Monday, May 15th, 2006

There is a new twist on the bot networks that have been the plague of computing in recent years. This one is called ClickBot. The story is from Incidents.org Many sites, (like this one) use adsense to “monetize their content”. The idea is that advertisers bid on “clicks”. So, if I wanted to advertise on [...]
