I can't tell you how many times I had give someone a refund for a shareware app I used to sell because my app used a similar file extension as an old Microsoft clipart file.

They would purchase my application without even trying it first and then ask me why it won't open their clipart.

Thats probably the main reason it's now a freeware app.

CCC Create a Rogue CA Certificate 300 300

t3rmin4t0r writes "Just when you were breathing easy about Kaminsky, DNS and the word hijacking, by repeating the word SSL in your head, the hackers at CCC were busy at work making a hash of SSL certificate security. Here's the scoop on how they set up their own rogue CA, by (from what I can figure) reversing the hash and engineering a collision up in MD5 space. Until now, MD5 collisions have been ignored because nobody would put in that much effort to create a useful dummy file, but a CA certificate for phishing seems juicy enough to be fodder for the botnets now."

Every cloud has a silver lining; you should have sold it, and bought titanium.
