A space to share and flourish with another human being; maybe we aren’t so all-persons-for-themselves, and not quite you for me and me for you — but me for me, you for you, us for us, and who cares about anything else.
Really missing Dave’s in Somerville today.
Genuinely excited about the potential relevancy of Microsoft’s SmartGlass (even I think the name sucks/is confusing) with them putting it on iOS.
Oh, and Internet? If I had wanted to see Coachella, I would have gone to Coachella.
From F-Secure’s debriefing on Flashback (the big Java-vulnerability-exploiting Mac virus)
To complete its installation/infection, Flashback.C requires the user to key in the administrator password. On installation, the installer first checks if the following file is found in the system:
Little Snitch is a firewall program for Mac OS X. If the program is found, the installer will skip the rest of its routine and proceed to delete itself.
If you’re using Little Snitch (as I do, and have been for years), basically the only consumer-level OS X outbound firewall software, you’re protected from Flashback because the virus will delete itself if it sees that there is a system in place to alert the user to it’s presence (or rather, that it is trying to connect to the internet).
