Facebook shifts News Feed, gives priority to friends via Daily Mail Online

Lately Iam browsing little in Facebook. Paradoxically Feed me appear in publications friends who could not see before.

I think Facebook, previously focused on publications show based on the users and not by topics or keywords.

I hope it improves. But I have learned that “recent news show” a good start to “discover” that the less frequent friends post.

Enabling Hibernate feature in Ubuntu

Recently, one of my friends had been facing an issue regarding the hibernation in Ubuntu 11.04. He googled all over the internet, found a lot of solutions but none of them worked out for him. Finally, we worked out a solution which I am going to share with you in this article.This article is dedicated to those people who are facing the same issue and never found a solution and for it. Also, I have taken a few lines from wikipedia to just let you know what basically hibernation is and what all are the benefits of hibernation.
Hibernation is a feature of many computer operating systems where the contents of RAM are written to non-volatile storage such as a hard disk, as a file or on a separate partition, before powering off the computer. When the computer is restarted it reloads the content of memory and is restored to the state it was in when hibernation was invoked.
Hibernation is used as an alternative to powering down the computer, because hibernating and later restarting is usually faster than closing down, later starting up, and starting all the programs that were running. Going into hibernation requires no user interaction; shutting down when programs are open either requires programs to be closed properly, or user interaction to force them to close, with possible loss of data or additional work on the part of the user to save all unsaved data in running programs.
This is how it all worked out, I have mentioned it step by step here. You don’t need to be a hard core coder for this, just open the terminal and follow these steps:

Open Terminal and go to root or just login through root
Type- vi /etc/default/grub
You will find the following line:-
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=” “
Type resume=/dev/my_vg/swap in the double quotes(“ ”), it should be like this:-
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=”resume=/dev/my_vg/swap” and save it.
Now update grub by typing:-
upadate-grub
Type – vi /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume
Edit the following command in that editor:-
resume=/dev/my_vg/swap and save it.
Now update by typing:-
update-initramfs -u

Try hibernating your system and check to find it working.

Firefox add-on shows you how your browsing is being monitored

Mozilla has developed a Firefox add-on called Lightbeam that could change the way you look at your daily Internet activity. Mozilla says that Lightbeam “enables you to examine individual third parties over time and space, identify where they connect to your online activity and provides ways for you to engage with this unique view of the Web.” As you browse, your activity is constantly being monitored by third parties on the websites you visit, often without any signs or warnings whatsoever.

Lightbeam delivers an interactive visualization of each third-party element on the sites you visit, increasing in size with every new site you travel to. All the information is stored locally as well and can be removed instantly by uninstalling the add-on. Mozilla has been passionate about Internet tracking for quite some time and hopes to illuminate the Internet even further with Lightbeam, giving users a simple tool to keep track of the countless connections occurring through their browsers every day.

Spies and watchmen

spies and watchmen

spies and watchmen

A new publication by Wikileaks shows how new technologies massive spying all possible barriers violate the right to privacy. It is the publication of 200 documents about eighty private industry companies espionage and show that the new technologies allow real time spy communications of millions of people. Hidden Programs (or “passive”, in the jargon) that instantly reconstruct conversations from Facebook, MSN or WhatsApp, without the knowledge neither the user nor the provider. Software that allows not only intercept and record a conversation but at the same time to identify who is speaking and from where. Trojans that infect computers and steal their secret communications encryption keys. Everything you do with the phone, internet, or satellite phone handy, or all communications. Everything can be intercepted and somewhere in the world, is being intercepted. Not even sparing the conversation face to face, because the market today offer powerful headphones to listen to anyone anywhere. So click selling satellite equipment.

The documents, which were analyzed in a joint investigation by Wikileaks and nineteen newspapers of the world, show that there is no defense against massive spying technologies available in the market. It is also an industry virtually unchecked opaque, offering everything from missiles to cell phones for special forces in hazardous areas, with panic buttons connected to a GPS, and sensors to detect and send a signal if the user’s phone is dead. As a private industry has not state control and unquoted no public control of big business, but practically their only customers are governments and large enterprises and Internet telephony.

Among the most important documents is a contract to install the program FinFly telephone from the former Soviet republic of Turkmenistan. The program allows infecting computers with a Trojan that is lowered each time a user accepts an update from iTunes, Winamp, Open Office or similar programs. Inclusive offers trout updates available to the user lowers thinking companies are recognized when they are actually sent by FinFly undetectable Trojans. The documents show that the company would Dreamlab FinFly server installed in Oman.

The “Files of spies” have three parts. The first contains brochures of products offered by various companies. The second shows any contracts and confidentiality agreements. The third is the list of countries visited primarily responsible for these companies in recent years through a track that would have made ​​of her cell phone. This file shows that South America is by far the least visited region by these specialists. Just recorded a visit to Brazil by three experts in June to participate in a training seminar IPP company, which was made to train security forces in the region in intelligence techniques. The IPP website shows that the next seminar in Brazil will be in November 2015. Another country, Chile, is mentioned in part two of the files. It is in an agreement signed between the companies Dreamlab and Gamma, written in German, which identifies Chile as well as Switzerland, Bulgaria and Hungary as Dreamlab customers. In other words, under the contract, Chile client would the company that installed the computer program FinFly infection in Turkmenistan and Oman servers.

The satellite tracking of entrepreneur spying industry also show occasional visits to Mexico, which is also mentioned in a brochure of Thales, who explained how he had installed a communications center with 750 police in Mexico City , a kind of police call center for emergency calls.

Worth mentioning that none of these companies, you know, illegal acts. In many countries like Argentina there are no laws against the sale of these tools, but against its use, since the law of 2010 computer security worth the “penetration” of computers, and only the Intelligence Secretariat is authorized to tap phones. But both telephone companies as large ISPs should buy some of these programs to comply with court orders. However, these spy equipment far beyond what any judge can order, at least in Argentina, because one thing is to order the closure of a site or removal of a photo intrusive, another thing is sort of chats espionage or emails.

Here are some of the bells and whistles that appear in brochures business intelligence:

– VasTech : Monitoring massive satellite phone . Discover the communication protocol and analyzes the extracted information. Mobile phone networks and Internet : monitoring massive network data storage , voice recognition , traffic data processing . With the Zebra program can take voice , SMS , MMS , email and fax. You can store ” thousands” of terabytes of information ( A tera thousand gygas ) . You can listen to a hundred thousand conversations simultaneously , or capture interceptions billion per day.

  • Cassidian : missiles and anti-aircraft systems . Sensors and radars. Detection equipment nuclear explosives and chemical weapons . More than 25,000 employees worldwide in 700 projects in 80 countries for over 400 clients .
  • Hidden Technology : All kinds of gadgets and gizmos connected with GPS signals , including devices with magnets to stick them under cars .
  • Glimmerglass , Netoptic , NetQuest : Fiber Optic Technology . You can intercept the submarine fiber optic pipes that take and bring communications from one continent to another to intercept communications of entire countries from outside of these countries , but countries ‘ knowledge. For example, Gmail Hotmail or Skype servers are out of Argentina , come and go through these pipes fiber optic and can be intercepted.
  • Cobham : Intercept tactics. As a person is moving , it changes cell antenna which receives the signal. This program allows you to jump from antenna to antenna with the puncture.
  • Scantarget : Analyze real- time web . Search on SMS , Twitter , Facebook , blog , chat forums , etc. . key words to know if anyone is planning a terrorist attack.
  • Ipoque : massive interception and network monitoring . Detects encrypted protocols such as Skype , BitTorrent , SSLand and VPN tunnels . You can search the web up to 25,000 keywords simultaneously.
  • Qosmos : Software that intercepts 550 000 gygabits in real time. All communications of a city like Lauquen Dam fit in 200 gygabits . It also allows more than one thousand enforce “rules” or instructions simultaneously.
  • Silicom : Give a ” redirector ” that acts as a triple plug to redirect electricity to more than one place. In this case you can redirect millions of data to another country or a spy agency without the user or the provider of value added services to find out, using the technique ” man in the middle ” (man in the middle) , which in this case would be duplicated and redirects interceptor communication. 
  • Autonomy Virage : Cameras and face recognition .
  • CRFS : radiofrequencias monitoring . Radios detection trout. Intercept radio communications.
  • Berkeley electronics: microphones detects interference on cellular communications .

From today “spies files” are available on the site Wikileaks

Here are some amazing IE (Internet Explorer) Tricks and Tips.  

1.  Here’s an easy way to scroll through a webpage

Press the spacebar and you will scroll down a page.  Hold down the Shift key and press the Spacebar and you will scroll up a page.

2.  Here’s an easy way to type in an address in the address bar without having to click in it.

Press Alt-D, then type in the address.

3.  Use IE in full screen mode
Press F-11 (the F keys are in the very top row of the keyboard) to put IE into “full screen” mode.  You will use the entire screen for the viewing a webpage – except for the topmost toolbar.  So take it a step farther.  Right-Click on that toolbar at the top of the screen and click on Auto-Hide.  Now, even the Toolbar is hidden.  It comes back if you move the mouse to the top of the screen.

4.  Set the IE window size and position
This bugged me for a long time.  I open IE and the window is a weird size.  You can set the default size of new IE windowss so they always open to the size that you specify.  Open IE, and resize it and reposition it exactly the way you would like all new windows to look.  When it’s perfect, hold down the Shift Key and close the window.  The next time you start IE (or open a new window) it will be your preferred size and screen position!

5.  Change the font size of a webage.

Ever go to a webpage and the type size is microscopic.  You can make the type size bigger by holding down the CTRL key and turning the mouse wheel.  Move the wheel up, the size gets smaller.  Move the wheel down, the size gets larger.

6.  Open a link in a new window

Hold the Shift key when you click on a link.  The link will open up in a new browser window.  When you are done looking at that page, just close the window and you are right back to your original page.

7.  Go back to the previous webpage – or forward to the former one.

Stop hitting that back button!  You can go back to the previous webpage by holding down the Shift key and turning the mouse wheel.  Turn it down – you go back.  Turn it up – you go forward.

8.  Want to set a new homepage – or does your homepage keep getting reset by your teenage son?  (Your homepage is the page you go to when you start IE).

Go to the page you want as your new home page.  Drag the icon in the Address Bar (next to the word Address) to the Home icon (the little house) in the Standard Toolbar.  You will get a message asking you if you want to set your home page to that address – answer “Yes.”

9.  You can easily determine when a web page was last updated.
(1)  Open up the page you want.
(2)  Enter:   javascript:alert(document.lastModified) in the Address bar
Note:  Your browser must be java capable to do this.
(This is nice but too much typing.  You can take this a tip a bit farther by clicking on the link below and learning how to make a link which is placed in the Links Bar or in your Favorites so that when you click on and it automatically gives you the date and time the webpage was modified.  If you’re a little bit of a techie, try it – it’s fun and useful – definitely gets )

10.   A new way to scroll

Don’t have a scroll wheel on your mouse.  You can right-click on the scroll bar (extreme right side of the screen) and you get several options to scroll.  The Top and Bottom takes you to the top and bottom of the webpage instantly.  Try them all.  This works even if you have a scroll wheel on your mouse.
