Kaspersky AV Source Code Leaks Online


It seems that the source code for one of Kaspersky’s security suite products has been leaked online and is available for download from torrent and file hosting websites.

According to a description accompanying the release, the sources were stolen from Kaspersky Lab in 2008 and the last changes made to them date from December 2007.

The code is written in C++ and Delphi and covers the anti-virus engine, as well as the anti-phishing, anti-dialer, anti-spam, parental control, and other modules.

We don’t know yet to what version of Kaspersky’s security suite the sources actually correspond to, but 8.0 is the most likely candidate at this point.

If you are a high SMS user, time to rethink your communicating way as operators will scrapunlimited (upto 500 sms/day) SMS packs and introduce maximum 100sms/day.

As Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) came out with a new regulation to stop the menace of telemarketing.

As it could best be termed ‘Collateral Damage’ TRAI’s new regulation which came out on December 1st, 2010 comes to sort out the telemarketing SMS, but it certainly hits general customers also, specially the youngsters who are using texting for main route of communication.

TRAI’s new regulation also notifies that all packs that allow more than 100 SMS’ per day will not be available for renewal.

First operator, MTS (CDMA mobile services of SSTL) is going to follow this regulation, will revise its SMS Pack portfolio with withdrawing 500 SMS per day pack (priced Rs. 64), and reduce the number of free SMS per day from 150 to 100 in Rs. 16 SMS Pack. Soon all details will be updated on MTS India’s website and other operators will also follow the same shortly.

It is expected all operators who are currently offering more than 100SMS/day packs will withdraw such packs, and bring new packs of maximum 100SMS/day or 3000SMS/month pack.

UPDATE-TRAI has postponed its deadline from 1st Feb 2011 to 1st march 2011

iPad is finally here in India!


Apple is finally launching its much-awaited tablet iPad in India. The company has tied up with government-run Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited to launch the tablet in the country.

The Wi-Fi version of the iPad will be priced between Rs 26,000 and Rs 33,000,  while the 3G+Wi-Fi version will be priced between Rs 33,000 and Rs 44,000. Both versions will come in three capacities, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB.

India has never been the most important market for Apple so it has always delayed its India launch. It is finally launching in India when there are already rumours of the iPad 2 launch just few months away.

The big question is will iPad really woo Indian techies?  We don’t think so. At a time when the market is flooded with tablets from Samsung, Dell and Notion Ink, iPad doesn’t give the customers anything different. Little wonder that in India, iPhone hasn’t been a best seller yet.  At best, the device might eat into Apple’s iPod touch sales compared to other branded PC sales.

With its reputation preceding it, it has already evoked price-cuts from rivals – the Samsung Galaxy Tab, for instance, is now available at Rs 29,500, down from the launch price of Rs 36,499.

However, the android bug is rather big in India. So will have to wait and see if the iPad can outdo the Android

The Mujahideen Hackers Who ‘Cleaned Facebook’

Tags: ,

Finally Admitted by Face book after so many denials

Facebook just admitted that some high-profile public pages were hacked this week. Brian Ries talks to a group of young hackers who claim they exploited a similar bug earlier this month—erasing a batch of anti-Islamic pages.

Earlier this week, Mark Zuckerberg made a strange announcement on his Facebook fan page: His business would focus more on charity and less on profits. And French President Nicolas Sarkozy took to the site to say he would not seek reelection in 2012. Both status updates left people baffled. And both, it’s now clear, were the work of hackers.

“A bug enabled status postings by unauthorized people on a handful of public pages,” a spokesperson for the Palo Alto-based company said in an email statement.Thursday. “The bug has been fixed.”

But it isn’t the first time a glitch in Facebook’s Pages’ code gave hackers a chance to sniff around the social network. Just weeks ago, The Daily Beast got word of a similar vulnerability—this one allegedly allowed a group of Palestinian-friendly hackers to wipe clean the pages of their Zionist opponents.

The groups are based in Pakistan and England and while most people were drinking in the New Year, they were hacking away.

As the clock ticked down the waning minutes of 2010, a 16-year-old kid named TriCk sat down at his computer in England, and pressed play on a track by the controversial rapper, Lowkey, whose lyrics include lines like, “Never worked for a Zionist, never been a Yes Man, my art is like Rembrandt painting pictures of death cams.”

Four thousand miles away, in Pakistan, a small group of Islamic hackers undertook a similar routine.

Soon, a digital flier began to appear on the Facebook walls of groups and pages the hackers say are Zionist, right-wing, and anti-Islamic. Its message: “On the evening of the 31st of December 2010 (New Years Eve), TeaM P0isoN and ZCompany Hacking Crew will clean up Facebook.”

The social network, which now boasts more than 500 million active users, was not doing a sufficient enough job deleting these Pages, it read, “so therefore we are taking action.”

Starting at midnight, the two hacker groups—they called themselves “sister groups”—began working in unison. They claimed to have found an exploit—a glitch in the code much like the one Facebook admitted to today. It was unleashed when Facebook updated to its new profiles and the hackers were using it to alter the offending pages so that they appeared blank.

Members of the targeted communities began to notice that something was not right. “Can’t see any posts,” wrote one confused user. “Your page/group has been hacked… It looks like it has been deleted,” wrote another.

But strangely, Facebook found nothing on their end to suggest the attacks ever took place.

Their Facebook plan was hatched when they found thriving anti-Islamic user communities. That’s when, in Don’swords, “we decided to clean the Facebook.”.

Members of Facebook’s security team said they investigated the backlog of the hundreds of Pages since first being contacted for comment by The Daily Beast, but found no evidence of malicious activity, no suspicious administrator accounts, and nothing to suggest the existence of any security vulnerabilities on the site—a total denial. “We take our statement of rights and responsibilities very seriously and react quickly to reports of inappropriate content and behavior,” a Facebook spokesperson said earlier this month.

But the hackers—and the hacked—seem to believe otherwise.
