ATM pins hacked ! Everybody knows your secret passcode

If you have a debit card or an ATM card you might want to change your PIN number.

I don’t know how they did it, but someone found everyones PIN (Personal Identification Number).

The entire list has fallen into the hands of the archive and it is printed here.

Mine is in this list … and so is yours.

Now anyone can use your PIN.

All is revealed at this website !!!

I just loved this one.

"This site may harm your computer" - Google says for every website

For a few minutes today, Google search returned ALL results with a tag This site may harm your computer.

This is often seen on dedicated malware spewing sites, but sometimes on normal websites when they are hacked and malicious javascipt added to the page.
For example like this one -

As one commentor on a blog said
If you actually decode the gibberish, you see that it retrieves a hidden IFRAME from user10 dot iframe dot ru. I contains HTML that loads three other IFRAMEs, one from zchxsikpgz dot biz, which doesn’t reolve, and two from statrafongon dot biz, which does. One of those some nasty looking Javascript that is definitely an exploit. (it even contains a function called “Exploit.”)

This rather Big Brother but thoughtful feature of Google was designed to use Google's status as the default browser in most computers for the good - "Don't be evil" (the Google motto)

Even the site was once tagged with the notorious label.
Well, today what happened was that practically all sites were labelled with this warning for a few minutes at leaast. Then it went back to normal just like that.

Was the entire internet hacked ? Or was Google hacked ? Or was it just a temporary glitch ?

Whatever it is, we'll probably see more about it on the net soon.

Caption: "I spent more time trying to get an audio book playing than it took to listen to the book. I have lost every other piece of DRM-locked music I have paid for."

Xkcd.Com is a webcomic which has built up a huge fan following on the net.

It's drawn with stick figures and all the fun lies in the dialogue and the alt or title text.

Sarah the cyborg ate a violin

If you don't know the story of how Sarah the cyborg ate a violin, then know this. Sarah, plain and tall and a cyborg was trying out underwater Linux. She wanted to to know the difference between a passenger-side bidet and a driver-side bidet. Normal furries would have googled for it. But Sarah, unlike normal furries, thought that people are too civil on the internet. So she said "Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a frack". And ate a violin made of chocolate.
