GCHQ’s list of Exploit Tools

“What do we do when the government starts to attack us?”

hackerThe secretive British spy agency GCHQ has developed covert tools to seed the internet with false information.
The tools were created by GCHQ’s Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group (JTRIG), and constitute some of the most startling methods of propaganda.

Previously disclosed documents from the E. Snowden archive, have detailed that these tools has been used to “fake victim blog posts,” make “false flag operations,” set “honey traps” and psychological manipulation to target online activists, and monitor visitors to WikiLeaks, and spy on YouTube and Facebook users.

It looks like a hacker buffet of weaponized tools one can use to destroy other.

Wonder what kind of tools they have?

(How-to) Framework 3.5 won’t install on Windows 8

For some reason, many people have problems installing/enabling Framework 3.5 in Windows 8 using the add remove windows features. Here’s how you easily do it the code style.

What you’ll need is:

  • Powershell (or Command prompt)
  • Windows 8 / 8.1
  • ISO, USB or any media containing any version of Windows 8 installation

Powershell

In windows 8, start up the “Powershell” console.
(This should work from the regular command prompt as well. Be sure to run this as “Administrator”.)

Run the following code int the terminal:

dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /Source:d:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess

Be sure to check which drive letter the installation media is at, and change the “/Source:**driveletter**:\sources\sxs” to the one you have on your computer. The “d” was only an example.

Framwork 3.5 should now be installed.
The best part by doing it this way is that you do not need to reboot your computer after the installation.
Had this been installed using the “Add / remove Windows feature” a reboot had to take place to install the updgrade

How to resize WordPress Widget Area

How many times have you posted an Ad or anything else into one of your widget areas on wordpress, and realized that it doesn’t fit the widgets layout or size?
YES, this is VERY frustrating, but look no further. We have the solution!

A lot of you have custom made themes out there, and some of you may also have created your own in “Artisteer”, an easy to use application that makes good themes for different platforms.
The problem with most of the themes out there is that there is no good definition around the naming of widget areas. To be honest, i don’t think this is your first thoughts when whipping up a theme for your site.
It’s not until later that you realize that one of the widget areas of your theme are too small or not fitting the content you put into it.

Luckily, there are hope out there!
Even thou the widget area has not been defined as something normal that would make sense to us in form of text in the themes CSS code, it has been defined, but you need to look for it.
Here’s how you do it.

The first thing you need is a web browser. (Hopefully you are using one to see this webpage.)
The second thing you need in your browser is a plugin that has the ability to inspect the code on your site.
In this example we will use the FireFox browser with a plugin called “FireBug”.

firebug

There are Inspection plugins for almost every browser, but FireFox is the one we use (or at least what I use, i don’t know about the rest of the staff)

If you don’t have Firefox and wish to use it, you can get it here.

If you have FireFox, but is missing the FireBug plugin, you can find this here.

Now let’s begin.

Now this should be basic for every browser.Open up you page where you can see your widget area.
Start your Inspector plugin. In FireFox you right click somewhere on your page and click “Inspect Element with FireBug
Click on “Click an Element in the page to Inspect
You will now see that places on your page will be marked as you move your cursor around your page.
Find the outer border of the widget you wish to alter, and click it. In the inspector view below you will now see the code of the area that you have clicked.

Now, here’s the trick.
In this area, look for a string called: <div id=”text-*some numbers*”> The ** would be a number. If you inspect our page, you will see that the top widget is called <div id=”text-14″>

Remember that number, and logon to your admin page.

codeYou need to have JetPack plugin for this to work.
Go to “Appearance –> Edit CSS”
Now in the Editor that comes up, write the following code;

#text-14 {
height: auto;
}

Change the number 14 with the number you have to change the size.
In this case we used “auto” on the height. This auto adjust the height based on the content.
If you need to set a specific size, just type height: <your size in pixels>px (ex. “height: 60px;”)

Click save, and have a look at your page.
It should have changed the size of your widget box.

NB: Guess this only works with the Text box widgets. That’s why it shows up as text-14. We haven’t tried with the other widgets.

How to Get Free bitcoins with Nordic Vikings

We all want to be part of the modern new currency that everyone is talking about.Get Free Bitcoins
The problem today is that this new coin is very, VERY hard to mine out, and I think most of us also don’t have the equipment to do so either.

But luckily there is other ways to get some of this stable great coin.
(YES it is stable compared to most other failed crypto currencies out there without mentioning any names)

So how to get some?

Well many websites offers free donations \ faucets \ CPC  (Coins per Click)\ Coins for Task \ and so on..
We have taken the time to collect the best places out there to actually get coins. And for those of us who don’t have supreme mining equipment, it sure is faster than mining the coin.
Yes, this is some sort of advertisement for ourselves, but we have done a great deal of work and gone through a lot of donation sites to exclude the the one’s that really don’t give you any good amount of coin.

But what can i do with the small amount?

Hey, keep in mind as we say “You won’t get rich!”
But what you can do with your small collection is to take them to a CryptoExchanger website, and exchange them into other new Crypto Currencies.
With a little logic, you should be able to know which one’s that may rise and which one’s that will crash.
And with a little luck if you play your coins very spot-on you can actually make a few coins in no time.
As an example, we went in with 1 Litecoin. We sold this when the price was high, and exchanged them into DogeCoins. And then just before the Olympics  2014 the DogeCoin community donated $25 000 in dogecoins to the Jamaican Bobsleigh Team, and guess what?! The coin value went sky high!
And guess what. We sold them and got even more bitcoins!

If you don’t believe the Jamaican Bobsleigh story, have a look at the article that “the Guardian” wrote by clicking here

So, what are you waiting for?
Go have a look. It’s only going to take a small minute of your time.
And if you like it, well awesome!
And if you don’t, well thanks for giving it a try.

How to solve “This Slideshow Requires JavaScript” in WordPress

wpphpOften when you add a slideshow this normally works.
But if you have a custom made, home made, or payable theme, this error will pop up where the slideshow should have been

So, how do we solve this?

The reason is that the coder of this theme have forgotten to import the “wp_footer” function code into the footer.php file.

Log onto you blog, and go to “Appearance –> Editor”
Locate the footer.php on the right side and click it.
(Make sure your in the correct theme)
Go to the bottom of the file that appears in the editor window.
Just above “</body></HTML>” add the following line

<?php wp_footer(); ?>

It should now look like;

Example:
<?php echo stripslashes(get_theme_mod(‘track_code’)); ?>
<!–end: blog tracking–>
<?php } else { ?>
<?php } ?>
<?php wp_footer(); ?>
</body></HTML>

Click “Update File” and go have a look if this solved the problem.

 

In some rare cases you need to also add the “wp_head” tag, as we noticed that this might cause some problems as well.

Just write it in using the same method, but only on the “header.php” file.

add the following line:

<?php wp_head(); ?>

 

Hopefully this solves your slideshow problem.

BitCoin users on Apple devices attacked by Malware

bitcoin-thiefA Mac OSX trojan horse disguised as a bitcoin wallet application is responsible for “multiple” bitcoin thefts.

SecureMac, a Mac security consultancy that develops the MacScan anti-malware application warns of a new threath called ‘CoinThief.A’.

Hidden within the open-source OSX bitcoin wallet app StealthBit, CoinThief.A monitors users’ web traffic to steal login credentials for software wallets and popular bitcoin sites, like BTC-e, Mt. Gox, and Blockchain.info.

The StealthBit app had been available on GitHub both as source code and as a pre-compiled download, but the page was removed fast.

Suspicion started to appear when investigators discovered that the pre-compiled version did not match the original source (which more knowledgeable users could and should be able to examine for themselves).

Upon running the program for the first time, the malware installed browser extensions for Safari and the Google Chrome web browser, without alerting the user. The web browsers are tricked into thinking that the user intentionally installed the extensions, and give no warning to the user that all of their web browsing traffic is now being monitored by the malicious extensions.

Additionally, the malware installed a program that continually runs in the background, looking for bitcoin wallet login credentials, which where then sent back to a remote server.

The browser extensions had innocuous sounding names like ‘Pop-up Blocker’ to avoid detection. Once installed, the trojan also searched the system for anti-malware software and logged unique identifiers (UUIDs) for each infected machine.

Large amount got stolen!

At least one Bitcoin Talk Forum user reported a devastating 20BTC theft after installing this StealthBit.

Other investigators noted several similarities between StealthBit and Bitvanity, another piece of notorious Mac malware that stole users’ bitcoins in August 2013. Bitvanity posed as a vanity wallet address generator that harvested addresses and private keys from software like the Bitcoin-Qt clients.

StealthBit’s GitHub code repository was stored under the username ‘thomasrevor’ and a reddit user named ‘trevorscool’ posted an announcement about it’s development there on February 2nd. Last year, Bitvanity’s GitHub code was posted under the name ‘trevory’. Something that indicates that this may be the same person.

Recent fall of BitCoin price

This malware attempt caused the bitcoin market value to drop radically in the last couple of days. After watching the prince trends, bitcoin fell from $1000 and down to a depressing $490 at lowest.
The prices has started to rise again, due people being aware of the problem, and hopefully it will get back up on top again.

Not so safe after all like we want it to be?

Linux and Windows users should not be affected by this, as far as we know. But attempt to do so is still out there, so be aware when you upgrade your wallet.
Even for Mac which they all thought had no threats. More and more malware are aimed against apple devices, and maybe Apple stuff might not be that shiny safe system that they want it to be.

Merry Christmas Readers!

Let the Christmas spirit come upon us!

Even thou we love technology, and basically every gadget (big or small) there is in this world, we must not forget that this is a holiday that should be celebrated with our families or the ones we love and care about.
Please enjoy this next evenings with your loved ones and let’s put away all those gadgets and non-social devices.
Candy Crush saga isn’t going away, and Facebook will still be there when the holiday is over. You don’t need to check that “wall-of-feed” every hour to see if someone has posted anything you couldn’t go without.
And even thou this day brings us presents, remember that there is more to this day than those great gifts we receive. Show your love and enjoyment with the person who took the time to think of you, and actually got you that gift.
Remember: If you receive a gift that you did not have on your wishlist, you must keep in mind that there is sadly always someone who has it worse than you.

We here at Nordic Vikings are going to celebrate this day with the ones we love and tonight’s feast will consist of Norwegian “Pinne Kjøtt” and “Ribbe” (Sorry about the super bad translation, but there was no good description of Ribbe in English so i had to run Google translate on it). These feasts are combined with good ale and Norwegian “Akevitt”.

We hope to see your IP on our website again, and wish you a very Merry Christmas!

Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z Q – code 50

I just upgraded my gaming computer’s motherboard as step one of the bigger plan to do a major upgrade, and I checked I’m front that both my current CPU and memory (Ram) was compatible with the new board but I was faced with the error nr 50 on the onboard error message display which according to the manual is wrong memory type or wrong memory speed and it took me a few days to figure out what was causing it I tried a few different sticks of memory before I noticed that the error presented itself even with no memory in the board, of cause I tried the latest bios and leaving the battery out over night but nothing changed… So I took out the CPU and gave it a go over  and it turned out that it was 2 of the connectors that had been pushed down a bit which had given them a “S”  shape on the middle but the tips were straight so it was really hard to notice and fix for that matter, after bit of fiddley work I got them semi straight and sloted it back in and hey presto it works!
