  1. I understand but it annoys me when people jump to conclusions. As for hidden scripts, anything embedded is not executed when you open the image file, not with this tool, as far as I know. How this works: http: No worries, no offense taken. And you genius, how old are you? 12? How would malware users exploit this tool? Files hidden in the image file are not executed when you open the image file. It only gets executed if you change the extension or extracting it and running it. There are malwares that pretend to be JPG files and this is not the tool to do it. An idea on how this works: http:
  2. I don't know what all the fuss is about. Being pounced on like a criminal. I'm just sharing a tool I made myself and the first thing that comes to mind is 'potential malware'? How would my tool be used as a malware vector?
  3. There are other uses as well such as hiding your files in plain sight on your computer. If I were to hide something in an image and the uploading it for someone else to download, I would inform them about the 'secret contents'. Even if a person downloads it without knowing what's inside, it can't do any harm. Just another form of steganography.
  4. I normally get the youtube file by loading the video and then grabbing it from the temp folder. If you want a software(converter not included I think), then you can try Stream Transport(http://www.streamtransport.com/). Apart from YouTube-like videos that creates a cached file as you load video, this software can also download videos that do not create a cache, even encrypted ones. Protocols supported are HTTP, RTMP, RTMPT, RTMPE, RTMPTE, etc.
  5. The 'hide file in an image' trick is old and can be done using the command prompt window but can be a little confusing. So I created a GUI to make things easier. Sometimes I hide files in the picture and then upload it to file hosting sites, I wonder if it's against the T&C of this hosting sites?
  6. This trick is not really new but thought it would be nice to share. iPhone: http://www.facebook.com/connect/prompt_feed.php?api_key=3e7c78e35a76a9299309885393%20b02d97 Android: http://www.facebook.com/connect/prompt_feed.php?api_key=882a8490361da98702bf97a021ddc14d BlackBerry: http://www.facebook.com/connect/prompt_feed.php?api_key=2254487659 or alternatively, you can visit this site: http://fbpostvia.zymichost.com Now everyone can post via iPhone, Android or Blackberry!

  7. Direct download link removed What do you think about it?
  8. Is yours pre-installed or self installed? Maybe the partition is only created in the official version?(or only OEM?)
  9. So in summary Vista and 7 does not create a RECOVERY partition automatically? It only appears when it is a preinstalled OEM version of Windows? What about cases of hidden partitions as mentioned in my first post and here?
  10. Just found out, the recovery partition is hidden in most systems(especially preinstalled OEM Windows 7 ones) and is used to recover factory settings without using the a Windows or recovery disc(unlike Vista). But i'm not sure about the purpose of the autorun.inf file. I don't like the idea of a hidden partition, taking up precious space.
  11. I can't seem to link with any software but thanks for the tip. I'll take a look at the shell extensions, sounds more like it. It happens quite often so I should be able to get it to hang quite easily... hopefully procxp can shed more light
  12. Is anybody here on Windows Vista or 7? When you install either OS'es, does it automatically create the RECOVERY partition? Is the partition visible or hidden? Are you able to access the drive. It seems that in most cases the partition is not accessible and is read-only. Sometimes there is also an autorun.inf file and the contents are: [Autorun] ShellExecute=Info.exe protect.ed 480 480 I don't think it's malware related but can someone shed some light on the purpose of the partition and the autorun.inf file? Does it only affect OEM versions of Windows? Thank you.
  13. Thanks hazel for the reply. I'm sure those are good security utilities but my concern was what changes would it make to my computer so that just in case something goes wrong, I would know how to revert the effects. Tools like ComboFix can be sometimes hurt the system if used incorrectly, so I hope you understand. Thank you.
  14. What does 'The Comedian' and 'TFC' do or fix?
  15. Happy belated birthday Mudd!
