Firesheep Forced Internet User to Rethink the Security Issue of Web Services

internet-globeTwo weeks ago, or 24th October 2010, there is a new plug-in for Firefox being released during the ToorCon 12 (a hacker conference) and immediately the plug-in captured tons of media attention. What is this plug-in made for, you might ask? Firesheep, a plug-in for Mozilla Firefox that is developed to demonstrate the security issue in most of the famous web services, such as Facebook, Twitter etc., and this security issue (known as HTTP Session Hijacking) wasn’t a new one – it is already made known and discussed since year 2004, and still most of the web services are ignoring this issue. Most of the web services aware that they can do a fully secured website for their users by using HTTPS/SSL, but a big portion of them choose either not to implement it, or implement it at the surface layer only (like Facebook and Twitter), where you only have the full encryption and protection during the login, but not the session after that. This doesn’t do good for their user since the HTTP sessions are still easily being hacked, and certainly their new privacy settings doesn’t help in the situation at all.

Review of Wondershare PPT2DVD Pro

ppt2dvd-box-bgHave you ever in the situation where you need to share a PowerPoint presentation and only find out that there is no PowerPoint software available for you to use? Or you have your company profile and product introductions nicely inserted into PowerPoint slides and only find out that you are only able to present it in video form during exhibition? Or you want to do some advertisement for your shop but have no idea how to make one? If you are, you might have a funny idea. “Can I convert my PowerPoint presentation into a video/DVD so I can share and display without any software or even a computer?”  Then you heard some voice telling you “Wish granted”.

Yes, your idea isn’t an impossible one. And all these made possible by Wondershare. Being their flagship product, Wondershare PPT2DVD Pro, as the name suggested, is a tool that assist you in converting your PowerPoint presentation into a video, either in DVD or some other video format. You can then have the DVD shared among your friends or colleagues, or even upload to your favorite video sharing website (Youtube, anyone?)

Sure, you must be thinking the conversion will take ages and requires some specific skills to do it. Well, no. I would like to think that my 6 years-old  niece can do it, with Wondershare PPT2DVD Pro. The software offers quite a number of customization options for the conversion, but if you are in a hurry or you aren’t a power user, those options can be ignored and your conversion will probably start to convert with only a few clicks (which doesn’t require more than 30 seconds).

If you have a PC running Windows and you have dozens (or tons) of software installed, most likely you will find that your Windows doesn’t boot as quick as the Windows first installed. While you might aware that you can customize the start-up applications in Windows System Configuration (keyword: msconfig), but apparently Windows boot time isn’t only affected by startup items, but also services installed by applications and Windows. It is really frustrated (as what Soluto thinks) when your Windows take ages to boot into usable state, so to avoid frustration, Soluto – the Anti-Frustration Software is the answer for it.
