  • Javascript Malware Analysis: A Case Study – "This particular beast was found in the wild in May 2009 on a site phishing for Facebook user credentials, and is a particularly-nasty bugger. Note the number of strangely-named variables created up front, many of which are not even referenced in the code blocks that follow. Additionally notice the odd ternary statements which have no impact on the operation of the code, and presumably must exist to trip up scanners (unless there is a fancy form of string replacement on the body of some functions, in which case the functions could be mutated before execution – and that would be scary. A cipher based on the body of the function has also been seen.)"
  • MySQL: Forked beyond repair? | Developer World – InfoWorld – Now that MySQL is part of Oracle, will the forks take over? "if MySQL's approval ratings are slumping, all the more reason for Oracle to move decisively. Oracle must work to regain the trust and support of the MySQL community or risk losing mindshare to a fork, such as Drizzle or MariaDB. To do that, it has to avoid making the mistakes that Sun made when it acquired MySQL. In a sense, to succeed with MySQL, Oracle will have to stop acting like Oracle."
  • Scott Hanselman’s Computer Zen – Less Virtual, More Machine – Windows 7 and the magic of Boot to VHD – Notes on using Windows virtual hard drives to manage instances of multiple version of Windows in parallel, e.g. Windows 7 beta, WinXP, etc.
  • How Opera’s business model works – Communication Breakdown – David Meyer’s Blog at ZDNet.co.uk Community – Around 40M users, "Most of our revenue — 75-80 percent — comes from mobile devices, fom a free browser. We provide the browser for free, like Opera desktop and Mini, and then we generate revenue through our content partners. We provide the search in the right corner and things like that, and that generates revenues in the free distributions. Then you get paid by OEMs [original equipment manufacturers] for distribution — companies like Nokia and Motorola. Most of the mobile OEMs and a fair amount of the other OEMs. We signed up Ford recently and we're now in Ford trucks."
