Malaysian Government Under Cyber Threat

2011-06-15 08:44:24


As we all know the Malaysian Government is being threaten to be attacked on the 14th June 2011 as the poster states. This is highly unusual as 1337 hacker group wouldn't normally say when and where the attack is coming from. Since this news hasn't been confirmed a hoax and judging by the irc channel and the people in it, this attack will happen. These are the video messages supposedly posted by the "Anonymous" group aka kumpulan "Tadanama". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAydYbNq09c Greetings, M...

As friendster has announced they're gonna close down revamp to launch their new product, they're also gonna delete all friendster profile and photos on 31st of May 2011.

Add the app to your application and start exporting, (i've encountered some infinite fwding loop by friendster for some reason however logging off and deleting the...

Things to read after watching The Social Network

2010-11-01 11:22:26


I managed to watch the movie "The Social Network" about how Facebook was founded back then when it was called TheFaceBook. How the site came about really touches me, because of my past experience my self developing social network sites such as Kawanster, it brings back memories to me, and i wished that back then, i was in the Silicon Valley area at and would have or might have made some difference in the community. Oh well ... after watching the movie i would assure you would have the urge to Wiki some o...

Protect Yourself from Firesheep (Kambing Berapi)

2010-10-26 16:25:24


As per my blog yesterday about my experience with Firesheep, i can hardly sleep now and always become "kancheong" and skeptical of my use of un-encrypted office wifi over here. (Since it's the only way i can go online here in the office). I have looked around and read tons of comments regarding the matter and here are my findings of how you can avoid being a victim Firesheep just temporarily until a proper solution has been figured out by the world. Since im a full-time Chrome user, i would start of with Ch...

Facebook Session Hijack Using Firesheep. SCARY!

2010-10-25 16:36:42


I didn't believe it at first. Until i tried it my self and beyond my eyes it worked! I came to a sudden struck of disbelief that i could actually view other people's Facebook account, Edit their Profile, Change Status, Change Description, Change Relationship Staus, Post things on their friends wall to cause misunderstanding between them, its seriously a scary thing. And i had witness it in front of my eyes. The exploit is by Eric Butler called Firesheep. Quoting his blogpost regarding this matter. It's...

How to setup FaceTime for Mac and call yourself

2010-10-21 12:37:54


FaceTime for Mac, which you can download right now, works pretty flawlessly so long as you have entries in your Address Book. Unlike me, i never sync my iPhone with my iTunes so my Address Book is empty. LOL. The FaceTime app installs it self, dont drag and drop the .mpkg to your Applications folder. Just run the .mpkg file as normal. Once installation is done, you will be asked to sign-in your Apple ID (Which is the ID you use to purchase apps in Appstore on your iPhone) If you dont own an iPhon...

Pad Racer - Awesome iPad & iPhone Controller Game

2010-10-20 16:22:43


I was reading up about some iPad apps and stumble upon this app, its a great app in Appstore for USD$4.99 and the controller for iPhone is free. What it does is that it connects your iPad and iPhone through WiFi and you control your car using your iPhone. Works seamlessly in Wifi and AMAZINGLY on Bluetooth, all you got to do is just turn on both Bluetooth and let it find each other, no pairing, nothing. AMAZING! Didn't know Bluetooth could do that quickly without even pairing. The great thing is if you h...

Limera1n Not Working - Tips to get it working

2010-10-10 14:41:29


10.10.10 is the day i've been waiting for, the official announcement of the limera1n release, a bootrom-level exploit that was told unpatchable (it requires hardware patch not software) hence all the manufactured iPhones to date will be jailbreak-able. It didn't work on 1st attempt, but here are the steps i did to make it work... The current release only works on Windows. I used Parallels Desktop to do the jailbreak at 1st, it had said successfully jailbreak but my limera1n icon didn't appear though...

Maxis Billing System Bug

2010-10-04 14:02:05


One of the most lousiest billing system i have ever used. They recently had an upgrade few months back, they shutdown their online billing for about a month or so, "KONONNYA" upgrade but they are still using the shitty "MUST ENABLE POPUP" in order to view their billing system. I dont know what the hell for, i dont see that its a security mesure to use popup. (Well maybe it is lah kot since Maybank2u TAC also uses popup) I mean come on guys, you have the resources to hire the best web developers out there, i...

Url shorterner should differentiate L & i

2010-07-11 04:13:16


There's a horror story behind my all time favorite URL shortener. There is nothing shorter than 4 letter domain. The best i could think of for a .my domain is a.my would be nice (taken) i dont know who owns it, im guessing all the 1 letter .my are fully squatted. J.MP (JUMP) is my all time favorite url shortener now. A little trick i learn from Liewcf.com is that for fast url shortening, all you have to do is to just add a j.mp/ in front of your url bar and you're done. See screenshot: The re...

iPhone 4 is not alone on reception issues.

2010-06-30 01:20:58


Apple haters and Android fanboys (or any other fanboys for that matter) has been ranting about the reception issues with the iPhone 4 with the way we hold it. Steve says in his emails is that all phones have a sensitive area where a certain part of your hand is covering the antenna causing attenuation which results in drop signals. iPhone 4 is not alone at this matter, take a look at these phones below which are having the same results: Examples of cellphones other than iPhone 4 affected by holding...

HSBB Unifi users! Sharing is caring!

2010-06-20 00:05:41


Lets go back a little down in memory lane. Remember when we first got our Streamyx 384kbps (^^") LOL, that was quite a while back and it's like having and EDGE phone nowadays. That amazing feeling i had that really struck me was the fact that we evolve from dial-up to 24 hours always online broadband, where you need not have to worry about long dial-up time phone bills anymore. My first download and i recall clearly was downloading CSI through iMesh. When Unifi first came out 1st phase at TTDI, i was exc...

My iPhone4 is on the way!

2010-06-19 11:16:19


I don't know weather I should get the iPhone4 first or the iPad, iPad seems 3/4 baked to me, but the iPhone4 is solid. Oh well, i guess i have to decide weather to own it or re-sell it to others. Can't wait for it to arrive. There is actually no obvious need for me to get the iPhone4, however there is an obvious need for an iPad. An analogy by @alexwnl said that if you already have an old oven, you can still bake cakes and heat up your food, upgrading to a new oven with more bells and whistles is def...

Install Windows 7 with USB Thumb Drive

2010-06-19 10:25:34


Apple said that they were the first to get rid of floppy drives, and they were the first to remove the DVD drive on their Macbook Air. If all laptops, notebooks, and netbooks are DVD drive less in the future, USB is the only interface of recovering or installing your operating system. I own a Sony VAIO-P (VGN-P15G) and the only way to re-install my OS is by having a external DVD drive. There is a tool from Microsoft called Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool that allows you to make a USB thumbdrive to be boo...

Paypal Malaysia wont allow Add Funds

2010-06-18 11:34:09


Ok i never knew about this because im so used with my UK Paypal account that i can add funds to my paypal whenever i want. When i tried adding funds to the Malaysia Paypal account it wont allow me, basically it has to charge your credit card for it. I just dont get it why cant we just top it up, im guessing people will topup using creditcard and transfer to bank as cash without any cash advance fee. Maybe thats why. Hmm ... ...

No need for WiiMote, Kinect is more flexible.

2010-06-18 11:16:22


Codename "Natal Project" now has been called Kinect. To be honest, i kinda loose interest in the WiiMote already because of its simulating movement to represent action in the screen. Which is not entirely "Motion Capture" movement technology which is used in animating models in movies. Sony has done one that mimics the motion capture movements but there is no news of release date from them. UPDATE: Just found out they are also releasing its controller in Fall 2010. Playstation Move. Watch the trailer bel...

Can I just import old posts and insert to wp_posts table?

2010-06-18 09:07:49


Ok Wordpress 3.0 is out and apparently its revolutionary, well always 1 version leap is always a revolution, so im starting to constantly blog about technology and what sort using this Wordpress 3.0 platform. It helps me learn how to use, and customize for my future customers or friends who asks me questions. I am very pleased with the new default theme rather than the blue small colum default theme that LiewCF.com uses. What im trying to figure out now is how do i import my old posts to this new wordpre...

Linux people are indeed arrogant (my real life experiences)

2007-09-11 02:12:58


Linux has certainly a lot to overcome to gain more acceptances into people’s hearts. The community of users is now pretty large and has grown steadily through the years; much effort has been put into making Linux more accessible to non technical people, compatibility is better than ever, new applications keep popping up regularly while more mature ones improve over time. But one thing hasn’t changed, and it is, in my eyes, Linux’s biggest enemy: its users! Arrogance combined with a love of obfuscation...

iPhoneSIMFree Torrents?

2007-09-11 01:37:53


After numerous delays and endless cries of "hoax!", it looks like the iPhoneSIMfree iPhone unlocking software is finally available for purchase from four online retailers around the world. Wireless Imports in the US, iPhoneWorldwideUnlock in Australia, 1digitalphone in Germany, and iPhone4arab in Saudi Arabia (currently down) have all purchased bulk licenses from the iPhoneSIMfree team and are selling individual unlocks for around $100 (Update: that price is just from the US etailer, it seems; looks like th...

Missing Suet Li when Suet Li is missing :`(

2007-08-17 17:19:10


They always say ud never realize something that is gone until its gone right? Well here it is. After Suet Li left our Nuffnang KL office. The office has become more quieter and quieter. Less interaction and funny stuff to laugh about her kawaiiness attitude. No more M2M buddy to sing along with me, no more jokes, no more muka tebal from her admitting that shes hot when we actually ask about turning on the aircond "are u hot suet li?" suetli : "yes !!!" Haih ~~ When the first i met Suet Li i can sense ...
