Search Engines, seperating the myths from reality.
Catchy title hey?

I nearly choked on my muffin when I read a competitors claims about what a search engine is, how to take advantage of them and what this particular company could do for a fee. Looking at this companies fees (they charge 10 to 12 times what I do for a website) for this search engine "strategy" made me feel sorry for any poor sucker that has used their services.

It's qualifier time here - what qualifies me to comment on and dispel the myths about search engines.

I own a few domains. Hundreds to be more accurate. They are all commercial sites, they are all active and they are all indexed by google. I control mind boggling amounts of search engine hits a day across all the pages I have published. If you're looking to use the services of an experienced SEO company, check out our SEO service page by clicking here.

In general I'm referring to the king of search in this article, what the others tend to do after some time is follow that lead. Click on the Read More link below to read the rest of this article.

Noticed the increasing amount of spam lately?
Spam has been on the rise, just incase you haven't noticed. A very organised group of criminals has been having a field day spreading a new worm that turns infected machines into spam mills.

This spam is truly dangerous, because it feeds off human emotion and arrives as innocuous e-greeting/birthday cards from "friends" and "secret admirers" and so on and so on. You may also get warning emails from eBay about your account being used for fraud, and this email like the e-greeting cards links directly to the infection.

Unfortunately you won't know if you have been caught unless you are using an updated anti-virus/firewall on your computer. If you have opened one of these emails lately, I suggest you update your AV and run a full system scan to identify and remove it.

Firefox and possible vulnerability
I am reading around a few webmaster boards of a worm that is mysteriously invading PCs of seasoned webmasters using Firefox. The name of this worm is Worm_Nuwar.AOO and it typically hides in the Firefox profiles folder.

So far the reports I have seen indicate the file has not been executed and that the file has been discovered by anti-virus programs after the file has snuck it's way in. If this was an innocent payload designed to see if Firefox could be breached, what might follow may not be so innocuous. The webmasters reporting that this file has been on their computers have notified the various AV companies that they use, so a point of contact detection update can't be too far away.

As always people, keep your antivirus programs up to date.

Warning on prompted installs
This is some seriously nasty trojan activity. It normally starts like this, you are surfing a site, and under Windows XP and Vista, Internet Explorer will pop a warning bar, which appears just under all the normal menu bars you have.

This warning bar will tell you you are required to download and install ............. in order to view this page correctly.

I have seen 2 variants so far, one asks you to install google toolbar, which is going to be easy to spot if you already have it installed, the other asks you to install a Windows component and claims to be authentic Windows software.

In my article on security I have warned all who have read do not install anything that pops up while you are surfing no matter what it claims to be. Go to the offical site, in this case and and install any components you need directly from the source.

Some antivirus programs are detecting this as a security threat, but since the payload does not actually have any malicious intent I feel the others are lagging behind in offering protection for this. I have seen recent estimates of 5 to 10% of PCs worldwide are infected by this trojan, which is just mind boggling.

The trojan so far has only been identified as altering how your computer communicates with the internet, by changing the servers your computer connects to in order to find websites you want to visit. These servers are considered hostile and are then used to control your surfing experience. Webmasters who rely on affiliate programs to generate income have estimated up to 15% of their income is being taken by people who control these hostile servers, as the servers work by manipulating the affiliate links to credit them instead of the webmaster with the sale, literally stealing income from that webmaster.

As affiliate programs and webmasters fight back against this the people controlling these servers are bound to use them for malicious reasons, so this is a sleeper threat just waiting to be triggered. The potential I see for future threats are information gathering (credit cards, banking details etc), spam assaults and DDoS attacks.

There is no easy way to tell that you have been hit by this infection and in my test PCs that I deliberately infected the ultimate solution has been to back up critical files, format and reinstall windows.
