TROJ_DROP.BP – A Firefox Malware

I stumbled upon a Computerworld article and it reported that Bitdefender guys got hold of a malicious infostealer that poses as a Firefox plugin. Bitdefender detects it as Trojan.PWS.ChromeInject.A (Trend Micro as TROJ_DROP.BP). Complete details can be found here

In my previous blogs, I usually do not care to post about these new antimalware/antivirus stuffs but what got me interested is this: I recently installed Firefox on several of my PCs to see how Menardconnect.com will look like using different browsers (honestly before I was a pure IE7 kid, but I recently said my goodbye to those all MS-days of mine), and its very intriguing to know that now even Firefox have its own share of this malware menace. I believe this just highlights some points:

1. When you gain market share you the probability of being the target for malware will be higher. So its true that Firefox is gaining on IE then 😮 ??? So Apple better watch out 🙂

2. Where there is money, bad guys will go (there) to get milk and honey (hehe my rhyme sucks). But seriously look at the sites that the trojan targets (see Computerworld article) and you will get my point better.

I’ll try to write more AV/techie stuffs on this blog next time.

Eraserheads Reunion Concert CD Review

I finally got hold of the Eraserheads Reunion Concert CD today. Raven and I bought it from Odyssey for PHP 305. The cd is manufactured and distributed by Sony BMG. I’m listening to the CD as I write this blog entry and I’m sweetly reliving the Reunion concert moment again 🙂

The CD quality is great!!! Definitely its not similar to previously posted videos in youtube wherein the sound quality is kinda basag na. It includes my personal favorites: Sembreak, Alapaap, Hey Jay, Kamasupra, and Kaliwete. It also captures some of the funny quotes from the Band (The last 10 seconds countdown, the good night greetings of Ely after the first song, The Merry Christmas greets before the Fruitcake etc). I am just wondering why it did not capture the “Group Hug” chants of the crowd 🙂

Edit: Between tracks 9 and 10, you hear the group hug chants.

I may be out of the loop in the music industry nowadays but its worthy to note that inside the CD case is a small leaflet that contains the download instructions for videos, mp3 and ringback tones for mobile phones. Each download ranges from PHP15 to PHP50 (wow nice biz for SonyBMG and the telcos :-p). It also contains the YouTube/SonyBMG PH URL (which I will try to visit later tonight)

To all the Eraserheads fans out there, grab your copy now (in case you haven’t yet). 300+ bucks for 15 songs, its worth it.

And whats in it for me and Raven? Well… we are waiting for the Part 2.
