According to AirMagnet Inc, one of the leaders in wireless LAN (WLAN) security and performance solutions, phlooding is a new exploit describes a group of simultaneous but geographically distributed attacks that targets a business’s authentication or network log-in structure, with the goal of overloading its central authentication server.

Boost Ranking In Google Blog Search Using Google Sitemaps – [Part 1]

Friday 23 September 2005 @ 3:37 am

GoogleJust a few days ago, in the post of Google Blog Search Strategy, I mentioned in the comments that by submitting the posts in your blog to Google Sitemaps might help Google to update your latest posts. Hence, it will increase the chances of your readers to reach your blog through Google Blog Search.

Usually, your posts will get indexed by Google when its spider crawls to your blog, but this is not guaranteed when it will come. Instead of waiting for the spider to come, why not submit all your posts to Google Sitemaps and let all of them get indexed as soon as possible? In fact, my blog has got more than 18,000 20,000 pages (Updated!) indexed by Google, I strongly think partly due to my frequent submission to Google Sitemaps.

Some of you, including Andrew, might not have submitted your posts to Google Sitemaps and would like to know how to do it, right? I will try my best to show you how. However, I will break this post into three parts :-

  • Part 1. For anyone using any blog script, such as WordPress, Movable Type, Blogsome, Blogspot, etc.
  • Part 2. For WordPress user.
  • Part 3. For Movable Type user. I am not a MT user, but I’ll see what I can do about it. :)

First of all, you will need a Google Sitemaps account. If you already have a GMail account, go login to Google Sitemaps. If you still do not have a GMail account, drop me a line or two to my GMail account, I will send an invitation to you right away.

Next, you will need to generate a sitemap to submit to Google Sitemaps. In this post, I will only cover how to generate sitemap using online tools.

Security Flaw In Google, MSN, Flickr And So On

Monday 22 August 2005 @ 12:40 pm

Security flaw found in numerous famous applications from big companies, such as Google, MSN, etc. Applications that affected are namely Google Maps, Gmail, AOL’s AIM Mail, Flikr and MSN Virtual Earth and so on.

This security flaw was actually found in a toolkit for developing those affected applications. The toolkit is called CPAINT, which is used to create applications using AJAX, which stands for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML. It is is an approach to putting more dynamic interactivity into Web applications using a combination of HTML, CSS, Document Object Model, JavaScript, and XMLHttpRequest.

The CPAINT flaw could allow an attacker to execute malicious code on a server running CPAINT, or running an application built using CPAINT

The AJAX approach has been adopted by a number of Web developers, the best known of them being Google, whose Google Maps, Google Suggest, Gmail and other applications use AJAX, although Google has since stated that Gmail is not affected. Other high-profile AJAX-based services include Microsoft’s MSN Virtual Earth, Yahoo’s Flickr and AOL’s AIM Mail. Many lesser-known services have also adopted AJAX, such as Swiss mapping service and invoicing program Blinksale.

What? Intel Pentium D Is Actually Two Pentium 4 !!

Monday 22 August 2005 @ 4:11 am

Ok guys, this is definitely a stunning news for anyone using Intel Pentium D processor (actually it is as stunning for everyone else :p ) !!

Intel Corp. recently revealed that its Intel Pentium D processor is actually 2 Intel Pentium 4 cores on the same package !! This announcement was made by Jonathan Douglas, a principal engineer in Intel’s Digital Enterprise Group (responsible for making chips for office desktops and servers) at the conference at Stanford University.

“Intel was unable to design a new memory bus in time for the dual-core chip, so it kept the same bus structure that older Pentium 4 chips used”

“We’re putting two cores in one package; it’s like trying to fit into the pair of pants you saved from college” =))

In fact, Pentium D’s bus could support two separate single-core processors, but it was far less efficient than either the dual-independent buses that will appear on the Paxville processors (Intel forthcoming server chip) or the integrated memory controller used on AMD‘s chips (a true Direct Connect Architecture !!).

Introduction To AMD Turion64

Saturday 23 July 2005 @ 6:35 pm

AMD Turion64
Normally, when we talk about laptop processor, the first processor comes into your mind would be Intel Pentium-M, which is used in all Intel Centrino laptops. So, to change this mindset, AMD has released their processors to help capturing more market share in laptop market. So, basically AMD Sempron based laptop is designed to fight head to head with the Intel Celeron M based laptop, which means both are targeting the cheap, entry level laptop market. Whereas on the other hand, AMD Turion64 based laptop is challenging Intel Pentium M based laptop and is aiming to capture the same market segment, for low power consumption yet high performance laptops, that Intel Pentium M based laptops have been dominating so far.

While Intel is proud of their Intel Centrino Mobile Technology, AMD too has their Turion64 chip under the official product name of AMD Turion 64 Mobile Technology.

206 Ways Of Saying “Hello World”

Friday 15 July 2005 @ 7:21 pm

Well, usually when we learn computer programming languages, the first program we will probably write is a simple program to display “Hello World“. Just found a website displaying 206 ways of using different programming languages to display “Hello World”.

Some use just 1 line of programming code, while others some might use up to 100 lines of codes to do the same thing. For non IT literate readers, you may have a look of those codes, and probably you will have an idea how long will be a normal computer application you are using in your PC. :D As for computer programmers, you will feel familiar with some of the codes there, such as :-
