Not Sure What This Is

Please do not click "save as" if this is popping up every time you open Ace of Spades.



RD found a tech site discussing the issue here. I see it and I'm using Firefox, what about you guys?

We're not sure if it is malware or browser issue. Either way, don't click "save as".

Posted by: AmishDude at January 14, 2013 08:11 PM (T0NGe)

32 Yep. using ff 8.01

I caught a plug in container. exe process during one of these things and that's a catch all plug in manager for when FF gets hit with a call for something that needs a plug in which it either doesn't have or the plug in has crashed.

I ran a scan. No malware and it only happens on Ace so far.

My guess? some outside link tries to drop a cookie or a file that it's not supposed because of a call from a normal process of the web page.

Ace may not be able to find out who or what.

w.streamcloud.com is the place to look. 709 bytes is small and may just be some image viewer or it's trying to show an image but there's no plug in to do so.

I'm speculating out my ass here as I'm no guru.

YMMV

It'll try to save the (unknown) file to your computer. This is a bad idea because the file could be malware. (but don't get too worried, you'd have to save it *and* run it to be affected)

Basically hit "cancel" to close the dialog and ignore it.

101 It's *probably* a badly-written ad or a java-based ad affected by everyone shutting off java.

Less likely but possible a malware attack, also probably through an add.

Even less likely, it's an intelligent alien virus trying to establish a foothold on our "internet," being delivered from a probe that has slept in deep space for aeons, waiting for us to progress this far.

But probably one of those three.

(a) I can put TweetDeck on it as an app (and a dessert topping).
(b) AoSHQ has no toolbar on the posting window. In particular that means if I cut and paste into the posting window, there is no HTML formatting that comes along for the ride.

119 "Has everyone disabled javascript in the browser? DHS put up a notification about that."

Java, not Javascript. Two very different animals.

Am running Flashblock under Firefox. Requires explicit prior user authorization before it allows any Flash or Java applet to launch.

Reduces vulnerability to security holes like the ones just found in Java. And also reduces annoyance from autoplay Flash inserts. Not that that ever happens (cough).

Blocking Javascript can be prudent too. A different Firefox extension, NoScript, will help you out with that. However, setting that to exclude all unknown Javascript does very shortly become tedious. Javascript is the kudzu of the Internet; it's freaking everywhere, multiple different scripts on every page no matter how basic, and if you have to explicitly authorize every last piece of it... your head asplode.

BUT, it's good security practice despite the tedium.

I'm no certainly not a luddite and not without a modicum of computer savvy but linux distros have not been very good to me.

it has been over 10 years but the experience left me with such a disdain for open source as far as OS's go. applications; no problem but having the basic core and raison d'etre of the machine be from unknown sources of unknown quality and planning just smacks of "hobbyism" and "elitism".

I'll get an Apple before I load another Linux.

And don't bother trying to sell me on it. Too many baaaaaadddd experiences. I'd need a psychotherapist to ever put one on a machine. (I may buy a machine that has it preinstalled but I'd always be waiting for the crash. sorta of like pre win xp days.)

The Vaio runs just fine. I have my video editing software on this machine, which has Fire Wire ports as well as a DVD burner when I'm done editing. It has a 2.6 gig P4 processor with 2 gig ram, so XP runs well. At work (a major market TV station) we still run XP on most of our computers, including graphics, weather and camera robotics and microwave control. I've reinstalled XP once in the nearly 10 years I've had this machine. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. ;-)

273 "271 to get their cargo plane off the runway.

I've seen a bunch of snark about this.

IT'S OUR TECH! That's a C17. That's OUR plane. WE sold it to them.

So snarking about the failure doesn't reflect on them, it reflects on US.

Well, who maintains it?

So you think we should go to war with the entire middle east (and probably parts of north africa, if we're being honest) to protect a handful of christians?

Our incompetent government? Who can't even beat illiterate goat herders? And is also 16 + Trillion in debt?

Posted by: Timin203 at January 14, 2013 09:15 PM (azmhu)

275 I agree about the maintenance, maybe.
Still. It's our design, it doesn't reflect that badly on them as it might seem.

Just like these fuel leaks and such for the Dream Jet.

It may be a maintenance problem but it's still a problem for the designer. They're responsible for possible making it difficult to do the correct maintenance or their guidelines on what to do are wrong.

Uh, our cargo planes (and we have many more than two to lend out if we wanted to) seem to fly when they're supposed to. The fact that the British have to buy our technology then cannot maintain it properly is worse then their own technology breaking.

277 What's causing this is either a browser or a server error related to the SoundCloud embedded sound clip at http://minx.cc/?post=336508. (The sound clip is discussing the Kerbal Space Program game.) Pull the sound clip from that post and the popup messages should disappear.

280 Java said they fixed it. Oh, and the DHS is full of shit, so I don't trust them anyways. If Kaspersky doesn't flag it, it didnt happen

Kaspersky did flag it.

In a report, Kaspersky Lab, a Russian antivirus company, said that half of all cyberattacks last year were caused by Oracle’s Java software.

This is like the fourth. time this vulnerability has appeared and been incorporated into exploit kits. First becuase Oracle refused to fix it. Then when they got pressure to they have assed it and made it worse (J7U9), then they fixed that fix with J7U10 and screwed it up to because they half assed it again and now hopefully it is finally fixed this time.

I am on the US CERT mailing list and all the vulnerabilities are reported from third parties to Carnegie Mellon University and the distributed by DHS. DHS is is collating and reporting.

I was getting something similar on my MacBook-Safari 4.1.3 rig a week or two ago and it's returned the last couple of days. It's obviously a different window but the "w.soundcloud.com" is common.

292 FF 17 (or whatever the one before the 18 they're pushing now) with Windows XP and I'm fine. I don't have any special add-ons or apps but I do have usual pop-up blocker turned on from the Tools menu.

294 Thanks Ace - I just lost a whole rack of vacuum tubes thanks to your little "octet stream".

Well, geeze, Louise. Octet stream have be processed by octal-base tubes. 6SN7's rule, man. You try running them new-fangled 12 AU7's, you/re just asking for trouble. Melt their tiny pins off, most likely.

297 The file itself looks like this:

lt;!DOCTYPE htmlgt;
lt;html lang="en"gt;
lt;headgt; lt;meta charset="UTF-8" /gt; lt;meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge,chrome=1" /gt; lt;meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, minimum-scale=1, maximum-scale=1, user-scalable=no" /gt; lt;titlegt;SoundCloud Widgetlt;/titlegt; lt;base target="_blank" /gt; lt;link rel="stylesheet" href="/player/assets/widget-20ec3b2e.css" /gt;lt;script src="/player/assets/widget-8f109e00.js"gt;lt;/scriptgt;lt;scriptgt; require(["lib/support", "lib/flash-widget"], function(support, flashWidget) {if (support.newWidget) { require(["application"], function(A) {A.start("07376aef")}) } else { $(flashWidget.start); }});lt;/scriptgt;lt;/headgt;
lt;bodygt; lt;div id="widget" style= "height: 100%;"gt;lt;/divgt;
lt;/bodygt;
lt;/htmlgt;

It's trying to embed some sort of widget, but because the MIME type is being parsed as application/octet-stream - the catch-all for raw binary data - the browser doesn't know what it is. Looks like a doofus script kiddy has tried to do something and trod on his dick.
