Cnet chose the wrong guy to mess with when it was found even nmap wasn't safe to such underhanded and dangerous practises. Now it seems SourceForge is following in their footsteps as discovered by this Eset anti-virus user. Unsuspecting users will be suffering the joys of InstallCore if they install a hosted project's program that has been wrapped in the malware-bundling platform." top

To my surprise I then saw that the actual phishing page was also hosted on autocad.com — and it was live. In all of the other phishing emails I've seen, the content is served from hacked forums, small web sites and VPS systems that have been compromised. This is the first time I've seen the web site of a well-known brand to be serving up tasty portions of phish.
Autodesk.com doesn't list any webmaster or abuse contacts and has no entry in abuse.net so I'm expecting my report to abuse@ to be ignored." top
A USB system has an asymmetric design, consisting of a host controller and multiple daisy-chained peripheral devices. Additional USB hubs may be included in the chain, allowing branching into a tree structure, subject to a limit of 5 levels of branching per controller. No more than 127 devices, including the bus devices, may be connected to a single host controller.
There are all sorts of crazy hardware hackers out there. I had a look around and couldn't find anyone who has tried this before — surely someone has!"
