Warning on stealthy Windows virus

30 November 2008

In a recent post of mine I show an Italian tv report about a kind of online fraud. Now I’ll post a link toward a BBC page telling you about the specific virus which performs the first part of it.

I’ll write now for who doesn’t speak Italian how unaware netsurfers are recruited to perform the second part of it.
The password stealers send spam emails to ask you if you would like to earn hundreds of dollars a week working at home. They say you should receive money on a bank account of yours from the ones of costumers of a business they claim to have. Then you should send them that money after having taken your rich commission employing Western Union or similar ways. Simple and very remunerative.

The claimed customers’ bank accounts are among the ones forced by the above virus, from which they take money; but they don’t find useful sending it directly to themselves to their destination, usually Russia or Ucraine, which banks haven’t a treaty with other nations to give back stolen money: that lack of coordination among bank institutions creates them also some retard and obstacle for a rapid attainment of money. So they prefers somone makes the link between bank accounts.

Major banks now have tools to hinder that, ask them to give you the apposite security key. Minor ones not yet at the present (November, 2008).

Furthermore I link also to a tool which detects/removes the virus. Look for ‘mbr.exe’ at the bottom of that page and.download it making a click to its link. Execute that and it will create a text log file called ‘mbr.log’. If it reports ‘user & kernel MBR OK’, then you haven’t got the virus, else I think it should start a removal modality.

Nell’internet banking boom del virus-truffa

28 November 2008

In un post precedente ho mostrato un’inchiesta de Le Iene su un tipo di truffa online. Posto adesso un link verso Repubblica.it che parla nello specifico del virus adoperato.
In fondo a questa pagina in inglese potete prendere un software per trovarlo/rimuoverlo cliccando su “mbr.exe”. Eseguitelo ed esso creerà immediateamente un file di testo col nome “mbr.log”. Se in esso trovate scritto “user & kernel MBR OK” allora non avete il virus, altrimenti se sapete l’inglese potete seguire la procedura per eliminarlo.

What do we want from information media?

27 November 2008

I believe the problem of the information media isn’t only they too often hide not so much hidden propaganda will, but that people has what I don’t hesitate to call a faith they have the capability of giving them everything on a platter. Therefore the point should be we don’t deal with media with the due rationality – however they don’t find useful to themselves to push us to do so. As a matter of fact they are, if we want to deal with them as they promote themselves, however ONE source and ONE way of information. Giving them a good confidence wherever we don’t consider they could distort reality because of involvement even worse if just an emotional one, letting apart their sources are really reliable, is left to one’s critical sense, a bit as we should do with every person telling us a story. I remember media are, government media too where they exist, firms which attend to tell what they need to make their job and people doing it carries on, which includes respecting the request of objectivity, accuracy e completeness but doesn’t lift from us the duty of, I repeat, critical sense, over all remarks.

Cosa ci aspettiamo dai media?

26 November 2008

Credo che il problema dei media informativi non sia solo che troppo spesso nascondano neanche tanto velati intenti propagandistici, è che la gente ha la fede che sia in loro potere porle tutto su un piatto d’argento. Il punto, quindi, è che non si trattano i media con la dovuta razionalità – non che faccia loro gioco spingere le persone a farlo, comunque. Essi infatti sono, anche a trattarli per ciò per cui vogliono porsi, in ogni caso solo UN mezzo e UNA fonte d’informazione. Dare loro una discreta fiducia laddove non si ritenga che essi possano deformare la realtà per interesse o peggio per emotività, sempre che le fonti a cui essi debbono risalire non siano inquinate di per sé, sta al proprio senso critico, un po’ come si dovrebbe fare con ogni persona che ci racconta una storia. Ricordiamo che essi, anche quelli di Stato, sono aziende che devono badare a dire ciò che è necessario per continuare il lavoro delle persone che la fanno, il che include rispettare l’attesa di oggettività, accuratezza e completezza ma non ci esonera di certo, mi ripeto, dal senso critico, al di là delle proteste.

Are you sorry?
