I was checking Plastic Bugs today and stumbled upon what I deemed to be an incredibly useful website del.icio.us aside from the clever URL this website is like a public bookmark repository. del.icio.us allows you (once registered) keep an online database of bookmarks. The cool part is that when anyone adds a bookmark that link is posted on the main page. you can also view peoples bookmarks and how many other people have that particular page bookmarked for example my bookmarks are at del.icio.us/cmoz . I even enjoy going to the main page and randomly following links. It’s never the same because every time you reload the page many, many new links have been added.
Earlier this month Microsoft revealed a flaw in thier GDI driver that allows an exploit in JPEG images. Someones already released this into the wild. Easynews (a Usenet Provider) found it sunday afternoon. “Up-to-date information about how we found it and what it does is located at www.easynews.com/virus.txt. When this picture is viewed it installs remote management software (winvnc and radmin) and will connect to irc” –EasyNews
