Im pretty sure if I was a serial killer, I wouldn't call myself one either. Has anyone thought of how better off the world would b without people like this? I mean seriously, it's like u can patent something as obvious as breathing nowadays. Hrmm, think I better get out the books on that one. Oh, and hasn't yahoo/outlook/and countless others been allowing u to look at voice mail for years now??

The threat is caused by insufficient format validation prior to rendering cursors, animated cursors, and icons. Drive-by exploits against Internet Explorer users have already been picked up in the wild. Windows Vista is confirmed vulnerable."

+ - Why the RIAA doesn't want defendants exonerated

Submitted by RageAgainsttheBears
RageAgainsttheBears (666) writes "The RIAA is slowly beginning to find itself in an awkward position when a few among its many, many lawsuits don't manage to follow through. Typically, when they decide a case isn't worth pursuing (due to targeting the wrong person or not having sufficient evidence), they simply move to drop the case and any counterclaims, and everyone goes separate ways. But recently, judges have been deciding to allow the RIAA to drop the case, but still allowing the counterclaim through. According to the Ars Technica article:

If Judge Miles-LaGrange issues a ruling exonerating Tallie Stubbs of infringement, it would be a worrisome trend for the RIAA. The music industry has become accustomed to having its way with those it accuses of file-sharing, quietly dropping cases it believes it can't win. It looks as though the courts may be ready to stop the record labels from just walking away from litigation when it doesn't like the direction it is taking and give defendants justice by fully exonerating them of any wrongdoing.

+ - RegisterFly Class Action Lawsuit is Here!

ScrwdByRF writes "Many people are trapped in Registerfly or have lost their domain names there and have wanted a class action lawsuit to join — after all, who can afford to sue on their own? Well now there is one. A class action lawsuit has recently been filed against RegisterFly, ICANN, and eNom, who have all had a hand in this. You can read all of the official court documents, background, and sign up as a plaintiff and to help make the case however you can at the registerfly-lawsuit.com website. Maybe you can even get your domain names back, which is obviously one of the very top goals.

This is a real, class action lawsuit that has already been filed in a United States Court. You do not have to pay ANYTHING to be a member and, you do not have to be from the United States either. I am the lead plaintiff becuase I could not stand by and let my business be taken away from me by the negligence of these people."

+ - AT&T/Cingular Blocking legitimate phone number

Submitted by

kickassweb writes "PennPIRG is reporting that AT&T/Cingular is blocking calls to the popular, and competing, service, FreeConferenceCall.com, as well as other similar services.

PennPIRG has learned that AT&T/Cingular recently began blocking phone numbers on its wireless service used by consumers to access free conference call services, such as those provided by Free Conference Call.com. The telephone giant has argued that calls to free conference call services are resulting in millions of dollars in losses to the company due to re-routing and termination fees, and has sued free conference call services and local phone companies in Iowa over the fees.


The article goes on to state that the free conference call service being blocked competes directly with Cingular's conference call service, and that this is the type of anti-consumer action we can expect on the internet if Net Neutrality is not mandated."
