Mozilla Security Found Flaws in Google Chrome Security


The open-source browser team –Mozilla Security– found security flawson its rival browser, Google Chrome. A post from the Google Chrome blog said that there’s a flaw in the V8 Javascript engine of Chrome that might allow specially-created Javascript on a web page to read unauthorized memory and bypass security checks. They released a patch to fix the flaw as the threat could lead in disclosing unauthorized data to the attackers.

The severity of the flaw is high as attackers might be able to run arbitrary code within the Google Chrome sandbox. Another fix Google Chrome had tweaked was that Google Chrome will no longer connects to HTTPS (SSL) sites whose certificates are signed hashing algorithms, particularly MD2 or MD4 since these algorithms are weak and might allow attackers spoofing an invalid site as a valid HTTPS site.

Open Book Alliance Against Google


This is another threat against Google as three Tech giants: Yahoo, Microsoft, and Amazon are trying to stop the search giant in creating the largest virtual library.

According to BBC News, the tree tech giants oppose a legal settlement that could make Google the main source for many online works. The Open Book Alliance is run by the Internet Archive and fears that Google is trying to monopolize the library system. The debatable issue is actually a revenue sharing deal which Google settled with authors and publishers to allow their contents to be archived on Google Books.

Let’s recall that Microsoft just recently partnered with Yahoo and closed a deal with Nokia to compete Google in the search engine market and mobile office apps, respectively.

As Google said: “The Google Books settlement is injecting more competition into the digital books space, so it’s understandable why our competitors might fight hard to prevent more competition.” Isn’t it one of the countermeasures of Google against the marketing strategies of Microsoft to put down the search giant? I think it is.

How to Extend Windows 7 Trial Period


“How to extend Windows 7 30-day trial period to another 30 days? Or how to extend Windows 7 trial version to full 120 days?”

Windows 7 Release Candidate (RC) free download will end today. What you can get after Microsoft put down the RC download is just a 30-day trial version of Windows 7. This means that you only have 30 days to evaluate Windows 7 features and performance which actually not degraded or defaced during trial period. Thus, what you are evaluating is the same operating system features and performances which scheduled to be released on Oct. 22.

30-day trial period is actually too short. Maybe it would take for you more than 30 days of evaluating Windows 7. So what is your idea? Extending Windows 7 trial period to another month- or another two months, or even another three months! Fortunately, you can extend Windows 7 trial period using Microsoft-supplied utility – the Software License Manager (slmgr). This is a tool ships with Windows 7.

When the trial period gets perilously close to zero, you have the option of running Windows 7 for another 30 days. To do it, simply follow this instruction:

1. click on the Start Menu, All Programs, and Accessories.
2. Right-click on Command Prompt, and select Run as Administrator.
3. On the command prompt, Type slmgr -rearm and press Enter.

Take note on the space between slmgr and a hyphen before rearm.

4. Restart Windows 7.

Your Windows 7 activation grace period will then be reset to another full 30 days. You can do this “-rearm” up to three times – thus, doing this at the end of every 30-day period will end you up with 120 days of full unrestrained Windows 7. If you don’t know how to monitor the remaining trial period, you can see it on the Properties window of your system “My Computer”.
