Sunday, September 26, 2010 by Aouad Abdessamad · 0 comments

 

Iran-Nuclear The operating system at the Bushehr plant - due to go online in a few weeks - has not been harmed,  project manager Mahmoud Jafari said.

The Stuxnet worm is capable of seizing control of industrial plants.

Some Western experts say its complexity suggests it could only have been created by a "nation state".

It is the first sign that Stuxnet, which targets systems made by the German company Siemens, has reached equipment linked to Iran's nuclear programme.

Stuxnet is tailored to target weaknesses in Siemens systems used to manage water supplies, oil rigs, power plants and other utilities.

'Electronic war'

The fact that Stuxnet has now been detected on the personal computers of staff will Stuxnet_hiew_oldnew_edithave no impact on plans to make the Bushehr plant operational next month, Mr Jafari said.

A team is now trying to remove the malicious software, or malware, from several affected computers, he told IRNA.

It is believed to be the first-known worm designed to target major infrastructure facilities.

"An electronic war has been launched against Iran", Mahmoud Liayi, head of the information technology council at the ministry of industries, told the state-run Iran Daily newspaper.

A working group of experts met last week to discuss ways of fighting the worm, which Mr Liayi said has now infected about 30,000 IP addresses in Iran.

the question is why Bushehr center is connected to the internet. ?

You Can't Block Mark Zuckerberg From Your Facebook Profile

Wednesday, August 25, 2010 by Aouad Abdessamad · 0 comments

Mark Zuckerberg    

A Facebook spokesperson  :

"This error isn't specific to any one account.  It's generated when a person has been blocked a certain large number of times.  In very rare instances, a viral campaign will develop instructing lots of people to all wrongly block the same person. The purpose of this system is to protect the experience for people targeted by these campaigns.  We're constantly working to improve our systems and are taking a closer look at this one." 





If you Have an account on facebook, you probably blocked same people from watching your profile and from seeing your name on facebook search. Zuckerberg has also an account on his own site

http://www.facebook.com/zuck .

 As you can see his wall is empty . you can't add him as friend and you can't poke him but you can send message.














Now let's try to block Mark .







when you click on report/block and check block and submit your request .here is the result



Block Failed

If you block someone, they will not be able to find you in a Facebook search, see your profile, or interact with you through Facebook channels (such as Wall posts, Poke, etc.). Any Facebook ties you currently have with a person you block will be broken (for example, friendship connections, Relationship Status, etc.). Note that blocking someone may not prevent all communications and interactions in third-party applications, and does not extend to elsewhere on the Internet.

One can only imagine that even if you could block "Zuck", he'd be able to get around this if he wanted. Then there's the fact that its his site. Would you want people who have accounts on your site to be able to block you?

How to Write a Chrome Extension in Two Easy Steps

Tuesday, August 24, 2010 by Aouad Abdessamad · 0 comments

i will show you on This tutorial how to creating a simple extension. You'll add an icon to Google Chrome that, when clicked, displays an automatically generated page. The icon and page will look something like this:
 You can create and develop extensions using any release of Google Chrome, on Windows, Mac, or Linux.


Create and load an extension

 

 First i will write an extension that adds a browser action to the toolbar of Google Chrome.
  1. Create a folder on your computer to contain your extension's code.
  2. Inside your extension's folder, create a text file called  manifest.json, and put this code in it:
    {
      "name": "My First Extension",
      "version": "1.0",
      "description": "The first extension that I made.",
      "browser_action": {
        "default_icon": "icon.png"
      },
      "permissions": [
        "http://api.flickr.com/"
      ]
    }
  3. Copy this icon to the same folder:

 

  1. Load the extension.
    1. Bring up the extensions management page by clicking the Tools menu
      (or the Window menu on Mac) and choosing Extensions. (If you're using version 6 or later, choose Tools > Extensions.)
    2. If Developer mode has a + by it, click the + to add developer information to the page. The + changes to a -, and more buttons and information appear.
    3. Click on Load unpacked extension button. A file dialog appears.
    4. In the file dialog, navigate to your extension's folder and click OK.
If your extension is valid, its icon appears next to the address bar, and information about the extension appears in the extensions page, as the following screenshot shows


Add code to the extension


Second step, you'll make your extension do something besides just look good.
  1. Edit  manifest.json  to add the following line:

    ...
      "browser_action": {
        "default_icon": "icon.png",
        "popup": "popup.html"
      },
      ...
    Inside your extension's folder,     create a text file called popup.html,     and download this file add the  code to it
  2. Return to the extensions management page, and click the Reload button to load the new version of the extension.
  3. Click the extension's icon. A popup should appear that displays the contents of popup.html.
It should look something like this:
