Pirate Bay acquired for $7.7 Million

The Pirate Bay team which recently went to court and loss for copyright violations, has launched a brand-new site called VideoBay. Video Bay provides streaming content of TV shows, music videos and more.

The new video streaming site is definitely still in beta, perhaps even alpha, because the site comes with a warning that states, "Don't expect anything to work at all". The on-going development of the site will take up to several years according to Peter Sunde of Pirate Bay.


In other news, a Swedish based technology company that goes by Global Gaming Factory X said that it had reached an agreement with The Pirate Bay to acquire it for $7.7 million. After the acquisitions the new owners would bring a legitimate business model to the Pirate Bay.

How the new owners plan on turning something such as the Pirate Bay into a legitimate business is beyond me. Doing so, would probably make them loose many users - and recouping their costs nearly impossible. However, with them investing that kind of money in something they most definitely have a business plan on how to accomplish it all. It will just be interesting to see how it plays out.

"We would like to introduce models which entail that content providers and copyright owners get paid for content that is downloaded via the site" said Hans Pandeya, CEO of GGF.

Okay, so they apparently want to do paid content but what would the content be? If it's not "open for anything" like the way it is now days, it's going to be hard to retain users IMO. Most of the users will go elsewhere anyway and you gotta think that GGF knows this as well. When users go to a site expecting something free, it's going to be hard to make them start paying when they can go down the road to the next house and get it free there.

"The Pirate Bay is a site that is among the top 100 most visited Internet sites in the world. However, in order to live on, The Pirate Bay requires a new business model, which satisfies the requirements and needs of all parties, content providers, broadband operators, end users, and the judiciary. Content creators and providers need to control their content and get paid for it. File sharers' need faster downloads and better quality" continues Hans Pandeya.

I hope it plays out well for the new owners. If they could somehow purse enough owners of content to continue allowing their material on the Pirate Bay, it might just work. I think that is definitely an uphill battle though.

Fastest Browser yet

The folks at Mozilla have deemed the changes in this incarnation of the popular Firefox browser significant enough to skip the planned version 3.1 and instead bump up the release number to 3.5. And I agree—it's a big improvement. By its appearance, you'd be hard pressed to tell how Firefox 3.5 differs from 3.0, but it's what's inside that counts. The new version speeds up JavaScript performance and catches up with other recent browsers like Internet Explorer 8, Opera 10, and Safari 4 by adding a private browsing mode. And 3.5 builds on everything you everything that made the previous versions of Firefox great, like the myriad extensions and themes and the "awesome" address bar for quickly getting where you're going on the Web. The result? An impressive piece of software gets even better.


I like Firefox 3.5's new New Tab button, which takes a page from Internet Explorer and Opera's playbook with a plus sign that makes it more obvious how to add a new tab. You can also now grab a tab and drag it into a new window on the desktop—or drag a window back into the open browser. The page appears as a large thumbnail while you do this. Safari, Chrome 2, and Opera all can do this, but IE8 still can't. Firefox is the last holdout to offer only a blank white page on new tabs: All other modern browsers display history, recently closed tabs, and favorites. Finally, in an appealing new touch, when you open a new tab in Firefox 3.5, the existing ones slide to the left.

Firefox already had an "Open recently closed tabs" choice, but 3.5 can reopen recently closed windows, too, so even if you've closed a whole browser window you haven't lost its tabs.
Buzz up!on Yahoo!

Unlike most of the competition, Firefox displays no indication when you're in the new private browsing mode—IE shows an InPrivate graphic in the address bar, and Chrome displays a private eye icon. When you start Firefox's private browsing mode, your existing tabs disappear, but they return when you turn off the mode. I had to reconnect to Outlook Web Access after a private session, though I'd been logged in before. Nothing from my private session appeared in history or in the awesome bar, which is how it should be.

You can also have the browser forget any site in your history. A new twist in clearing private data is that it's no longer an all-or-nothing proposition: Firefox 3.5's Clear Recent History lets you tell the browser just to clear history, cache, cookies, logins, and so on for the past hour, two hours, four hours, or whole day, or for your entire history. This is more control than the old Clear Private Data offered.

One nitpick of mine is that the sidebar isn't as accessible as the ones in Internet Explorer and Opera, which offer button access. This handy panel can show history or bookmarks, but you can only get to it if you know the keyboard combination, by customizing your toolbars, or by choosing it from the View menu. In Opera, the sidebar performs a multitude of functions as well, such as downloads, notes, and widgets.

Zemanta to make your blog better


Zemanta is a browser plug-in for Firefox and IE, and is available as a bookmarklet for Chrome and Safari. (More details here, you can download your version of Zemanta here.)



Here's how it works: while you write your blog post in Blogger, Zemanta opens up a sidebar next to the Blogger post editor. After you've written a few sentences, Zemanta analyzes the words in your post and suggests images and video that are relevant to your post; with one click, it inserts them into your post. (The Zemanta screenshot from Flickr in this post was inserted with just that one click.)


In addition, Zemanta looks for words/phrases it's familiar with, and makes it easy to link those words to URLs it knows about. The phrases appear immediately below the post editor in Blogger, and by clicking on them you automatically create the links Zemanta recommends. No more highlighting text, clicking "Link", pasting the URL - just click the words you want linked, and Zemanta handles the creation of the link - to webpages, maps, videos or pictures.

Blogger Labels are easier to use with Zemanta, too: Zemanta automatically suggests labels for your based on the text of your post, and creates the labels for you if you like. Finally, "Latest Update" gives you a list of blog posts from other blogs writing about similar topics. It's a great way to discover sites talking about similar topics, and if you'd like to point your readers to those articles for further reading, clicking on them in the sidebar inserts them as "Related reading" links at the bottom of your post (see below).

Yahoo 360 Closes on July 13 2009

Yahoo! 360° is a personal communication portal operated by Yahoo!. It is similar to other social networking sites and while text on the site still describes it as being in beta testing, in fact development has ended and the site is no longer actively supported. Long after support ended, the promised replacement social network site has never materialized.

Users can create personal web sites, share photos from Yahoo! Photos, maintain blogs, lists of local reviews, supply profile information, and see which friends are currently online. 360° also, by default, features a 'friends updates' section, under which each friend's latest update is summarized (e.g. blog posts, updates lists, new photostream etc.).


In May 2009 Yahoo! announced that Yahoo! 360° service will be officially closed on July 13, 2009 as Yahoo! developers aimed to "focus their efforts on the new profile on Yahoo".[1] Users are given options to move their Yahoo! 360° information and blog to the new profile before this deadline.

Searches flood Google about the death of the Pop King


As word spread of Michael Jackson's death, millions and millions of people from all over the world began searching for information about the pop icon. The following chart shows the meteoric rise in related searches around 3:00pm PDT:

Search volume began to increase around 2:00pm, skyrocketed by 3:00pm, and stabilized by about 8:00pm. As you can see in Google Hot Trends, many of the fastest rising search queries from yesterday and today have been about Michael Jackson's passing (others pertained to the death of another cultural icon,Farrah Fawcett). People who weren't near a computer yesterday turned to their mobile phones to check on breaking news. We saw one of the largest mobile search spikes we've ever seen, with 5 of the top 20 searches about the Moonwalker.

The spike in searches related to Michael Jackson was so big that Google News initially mistook it for an automated attack. As a result, for about 25 minutes yesterday, when some people searched Google News they saw a "We're sorry" page before finding the articles they were looking for.

Michael Jackson led an amazing and controversial life in the public eye. Many of us have a "Michael Jackson story." Mine is that he actually taught me how to moonwalk — thanks to many an hour I spent in front of the television trying to mimic his performances. Regardless of your story or personal opinions about this astounding performer, global interest in the King of Pop is undeniable.

How to be a Good Blogger

After successfully running a blog for over a month, I have come up with some tips for the wannabe bloggers and the new ones out there. I am no authority on blogging and these tips are based on just my experience.

1. Try to post an article atleast 5 days a week.

2. To get an idea about what to post, visit other blogs which have the same niche as your blog.

3. Post comments in other blogs and also post a link to your blog on the bottom of the comment.


4. Use social bookmarking sites like Digg, Delicious, Technorati to make your blog popular.

5. Create a channel for your blog at Twitter and update it as you update your blog.

6. Do not post more than 2 posts per day. I dont know why, but it will seem heavy on the reader's eyes.

7. In case, you copy some information from another blog, give the owner of the information credit, by posting the source of the information at the end of the post.

8. Use traffic analysis services like Google Analytics, Statcounter, Sitemeter, Histats to monitor the traffic and sources of your blog. Most of these services give a reasonable amount of data about your blog's traffic for free

9. Do not subscribe to any sites that offer link exchanges on a category basis. This may have an effect on your blog in Google search.

10. In case you need to exchange links, contact the administrator of the blog you wish to exchange with and come up with a good reason why he/she should exchange links with you.

I am sure the above tips would help you. Use the comments options if you think any of the above tips are incorrect or if you have any more tips that will be useful.

Microsoft Security Essentials Reviewed

Microsoft Security Essentials released by Microsoft a few days ago has nothing special about it. It has the usual Scan options.

It has a real time protection which alerts you when viruses, spyware or other potentially unwanted software attempts to install itself or run on your computer.




However, it has good detection capabilites. When it detects a virus, it gives you the description about the virus without connecting to the internet, unlike Kaspersky Antivirus which connects to its Virus database to access the information about the virus.


It has an option for how to react with threats, Microsoft SpyNet.
Microsoft Spynet is the online community that helps you choose how to respond to potential threats. The community also helps stop the spread of new malicious software infections.






Microsoft Security Essentials just detects the threats very well, but for reliability, we have to see in the long run. Although it doesn't have any special features, it does a good job on its own.

Protect your data from being stolen

Firewalls and antivirus software are no defense against acts of data theft and corruption from within your organization at local endpoints. You don't have to be an administrator to connect a small digital camera, MP3 player, or flash memory stick to the USB and begin uploading or downloading whatever you want. If you are a system administrator, you know you can't manage such device-level activity via Group Policy.

Using endpoint device security solution called DeviceLock®, network administrators can lock out unauthorized users from USB and FireWire devices, WiFi and Bluetooth adapters, CD-Rom and floppy drives, serial and parallel ports, PDAs and smartphones, local and network printers and many other plug-and-play devices. Once DeviceLock® is installed, administrators can control access to any device, depending on the time of day and day of the week.

For enterprises standardized on software and hardware-based encryption solutions like PGP® Whole Disk Encryption, TrueCrypt and Lexar® SAFE PSD S1100 USB drives, DeviceLock® allows administrators to centrally define and remotely control the encryption policies their employees must follow when using removable devices for storing and retrieving corporate data. For example, certain employees or their groups can be allowed to write to and read from only specifically encrypted USB flash drives, while other users of the corporate network can be permitted to "read only" from non-encrypted removable storage devices but not write to them.


The USB white list allows you to authorize only specific devices that will not be locked regardless of any other settings. The intention is to allow special devices (e.g. smart card readers) but lock all other devices. Media White List feature allows you to authorize access to specific DVD/CD-ROM disks, uniquely identified by data signature, even when DeviceLock® has otherwise blocked the DVD/CD-ROM drive. A convenience when DVD/CD-ROM disks are routinely used for the distribution of new software or instruction manuals, Media White Listing can also specify allowed users and groups, so that only authorized users are able to access the contents of the DVD or CD-ROM.

The DeviceLock®'s optional data shadowing capability significantly enhances the corporate IT auditor’s ability to ensure that sensitive information has not left the premises on removable media. It captures full copies of files that are copied to authorized removable devices, Windows Mobile and Palm OS-based PDAs and smartphones, burned to CD/DVD or even printed by authorized end users. Shadow copies are stored on a centralized component of an existing server and any existing ODBC-compliant SQL infrastructure of the customer’s choosing.

DeviceLock® Enterprise Server can monitor remote computers in real-time, checking DeviceLock® Service status (running or not), policy consistency and integrity. The detailed information is written to the Monitoring log. Also, it is possible to define a master policy that can be automatically applied across selected remote computers in the event that their current policies are suspected to be out-of-date or damaged.

DeviceLock® allows you to generate a report concerning the permissions that have been set. You can see which users are assigned for what device and what devices are on the USB white list on all the computers across your network.

DeviceLock® provides a level of precision control over device resources unavailable via Windows Group Policy - and it does so with an interface that is seamlessly integrated into the Windows Group Policy Editor. As such, it’s easier to implement and manage across a large number of workstations.

Proxy software for Windows and Mac

Proxifier is a program that allows network applications that do not support working through proxy servers operate through a HTTP or SOCKS proxy server or a chain of proxy servers.

There are many network applications that do not support working through proxy servers and thus cannot be used behind a LAN or firewall(s). These can compromise corporate privacy and lead you to many other restrictions. Proxifier solves all of these problems and gives you the opportunity to work with your favorite software without any restrictions. Additionally, it lets you gain extra control over network security, create a proxy tunnel and add more power to network functionality. With Proxifier you can work with any Internet client (browsers, FTP, IRC, BitTorrent, messengers, telnet, SSH, video/audio, games...) through a network that is separated from Internet by a firewall (only one open port is required for a proxy tunnel to bypass firewall).

Proxifier will provide you with added privacy in all your Internet activities. An example is sending and receiving email through a proxy server or by chaining multiple proxy servers together. Proxifier supports all mail clients while allowing you to remain anonymous.

Proxifier Portable Edition

Portable Edition has most of Proxifier features while providing you with unique opportunities:
  • Portable Edition requires no installation and can be run from removable media such as USB stick, Floppy, etc...
  • You don't need Admin rights on a computer to run the program and bypass firewall.
  • You can use Portable Edition on a computer with guest access only (for example at Internet Cafe).
  • ... and much more.
The software is a trial version for 31 days.

Proxifier allows you to:
  • Run any network applications through proxy server; no special configuration is required for the software.
  • Access the Internet from restricted local area network through a proxy server gateway.
  • Bypass firewall restrictions (connect to restricted ports).
  • Use three types of proxy servers: SOCKS v4, SOCKS v5, and HTTP.
  • "Tunnel" the entire system (force all network connections in the system work through a proxy server).
  • Resolve DNS names through a proxy server.
  • Use flexible Proxification Rules.
  • Secure privacy by hiding your IP address.
  • Work through a chain of proxy servers using different protocols.
  • Use NTLM authentication on HTTP proxy
  • View information on current connections (addresses, rate, data transfer, connection time, etc.) in real-time.
  • View information on bandwidth usage as a colored diagram in real-time.
  • Maintain log files.
  • Log incoming and outgoing traffic.
  • Get detailed reports on network errors.
  • … and much more.

Proxifier Portable Edition:

  • Has most of Proxifier Standard Edition features.
  • Doesn't require installation on a local machine.
  • Can be run from removable media such as USB stick, Floppy, etc…
  • Can be run from Guest and Restricted user accounts.
  • Keeps all settings in the file, doesn't use system registry.

Customize Firefox to your memory needs

Limit RAM usage:

If Firefox takes up too much memory on your computer, you can limit the amount of RAM it is allowed to us.
1. Go to about:config by typing about:config in the address bar.

2. Select "browser.cache.disk.capacity". It is set to 50000, but you can lower it, depending on how much memory you have. Try 15000 if you have between 512MB and 1GB ram.

Reduce RAM usage further for when Firefox is minimized:

This setting will move Firefox to your hard drive when you minimize it, taking up much less memory. And there is no noticeable difference in speed when you restore Firefox, so it’s definitely worth a go.
1. Go to about:config

2. Right-click anywhere and select New-> Boolean.
3. Name it "config.trim_on_minimize" and set it to TRUE. You have to restart Firefox for these settings to take effect.

Trace the sender of an email using IP Address

Hi Readers, I will show you how to trace an email sender from the email header. Every email comes with information attached to it about its history. This information is called the header. A header will look somewhat similar to the below:

MIME-Version: 1.0
Received: from rwcrmhc11.comcast.net ([204.127.198.35]) by mc7-f12.hotmail.com with Microsoft SMTPSVC(5.0.2195.6713); Tue, 25 Nov 2003 19:56:18 -0800

X-Message-Info: JGTYoYF78jGkTvdOiviUvHyY85nt7iLD
Message-ID: <000801c3b3cf$a92237a0$96182544@mnhwkn01.nj.comcast.net>
X-Priority: 3
X-MSMail-Priority: Normal
X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2800.1106
Disposition-Notification-To: "Leona"
X-MimeOLE: Produced By Microsoft MimeOLE V6.00.2800.1106

X-OriginalArrivalTime: 26 Nov 2003 03:56:18.0897 (UTC) FILETIME=[3F5AFC10:01C3B3D1]



First, let me tell you how to view the header file of an email.

Gmail
1. Login to Gmail.
2. Open the message you'd like to view headers for.
3. Click the down arrow next to Reply, at the top-right of the message pane.
4. Select Show original. The full headers will appear in a new window.

Hotmail

1. Log in to your Hotmail account.
2. Click Options next to the tabs.
3. Select Mail from the left-side menu.
4. Click Mail Display Settings.
5. Under Message Headers, select Advanced.
6. Click OK.
The full headers for all of your messages will now be available. Return to your inbox, and open the message you'd like to view headers for.

Yahoo! Mail
1. Log in to your Yahoo! Mail account.
2. Open the message you'd like to view headers for.
3. Click Full Headers at the top of your message. The full headers will appear above the message text.

Now, I will explain what each title in the header file means:

Message ID:
It is used to identify the system from which the the message has originated (i.e. from the system the sender has logged in). However, this is too easy to forge, and is consequently not reliable.


X- headers are user defined headers. They are inserted by email client programs or applications that use email. Here from the X- headers inserted into the email by the email client it is clear that the sender has used Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2800.1106 to send this email.

X-Priority: 3
X-MSMail-Priority: Normal
X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2800.1106

MIME-Version:
MIME stands for Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension. It tells the recipient what types of attachments are included in email. It is a format that allows people to send attachments that do not contain Standard English Words, but rather graphics, sounds, and e-mails written with other characters. The Mime-Version field merely confirms that the version of MIME used corresponds to the standard version (which is currently 1.0).

From:
From is useless in tracing an e-mail. It consists of the email of the sender but this can be obviously be a fake. One can use any fake-mailer to fake the sender's name.

Content-Type:
This line tells the receiving e-mail client exactly what MIME type or types are included in the e-mail message. If the Content–Type is text/plain; charset="us-ascii" just tells us that the message contains a regular text message that uses English characters. ASCII is the American Standard Code for Information Interchange and is the system used to convert numbers to English characters.

Return-Path:
It is the address to which your return e-mail will be sent. Different e-mail programs use other variations of Return-Path:. These might include Return-Errors-To: or Reply-To etc.

Received:

This field is the key to find out the source of any e-mail. Like a regular letter, e-mails gets postmarked with information that tells where it has been. However, unlike a regular letter, an e-mail might get "postmarked" any number of times as it makes its way from its source through a number of mail transfer agents (MTAs). The MTAs are responsible for properly routing messages to their destination.

The header is splitted and the two received headers are given below.

Received Header 1: 204.127.198.35 - Tue, 25 Nov 2003 19:56:18 -0800
from rwcrmhc11.comcast.net ([204.127.198.35])
by mc7-f12.hotmail.com
with Microsoft SMTPSVC(5.0.2195.6713)


Received Header 2: 68.37.24.150 - Wed, 26 Nov 2003 03:44:57 +0000
from pavilion (pcp03530790pcs.mnhwkn01.nj.comcast.net[68.37.24.150])
by comcast.net (rwcrmhc11)
with SMTP
id <20031126034457013001nk6pe>



Note down the IP Address in the last received header, in this case it is 68.37.24.150. This is the IP Address from where the email has originated.

Tracing the owner by the IP Address

Every computers hooked on to internet is assigned with an IP address. Individual users possess a dynamic IP address when they logged on to any ISP to access internet. These IP addresses are assigned by the ISP itself. Organization usually possess static/public IP address which is stored in a database of registries.

There are three major registries covering different parts of the world. They are

http://www.arin.net/ => American Registry of Internet Numbers (ARIN) : It assigns IP addresses for the Americas and for sub Saharan Africa.

http://www.apnic.net/ => Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC) : It covers Asia

http://www.ripe.net/ => Réseaux IP Européens (RIPE NCC) : It covers Europe

Thus, to find out which organization owns a particular IP address, you can make a "WHOIS" query in the database at any of these registries. You do this by typing the IP address into the "WHOIS" box that appears on each of these websites.

"Received Header" will have the IP address of the ISP in case the users has dialed up to the ISP while sending the email. But if the user has send the email from within the corporate then the corporate public/static IP address is logged.

Ports Used by Trojan Horses

Hi readers, I discovered some useful information about viruses and trojan horses. Viruses and Trojan Horses use ports to make use of our system resources. Ports are similar to the real ship ports, they handle data in and out of the system. They are virtual. The following is the list of ports that applications and trojan horses use to get access. Ports range from 0 to 65535.

Default ports used by some known trojan horses:

port 0 REx
port 1 (UDP) - Sockets des Troie
port 2 Death
port 5 yoyo
port 11 Skun
port 16 Skun
port 17 Skun
port 18 Skun

Leaked: Microsoft Security Essentials

A pre-beta version of Microsoft's upcoming antivirus app (and Windows Defender replacement) has been leaked. What has been known as codename Morro will apparently be called Microsoft Security Essentials. Screenshots inside.


Despite Microsoft's best efforts, the company's new antivirus product (codename Morro) has leaked. A leaked pre-beta indicates that the final name is Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE), and it will come with a brand new UI. Currently being tested by Microsoft employees and a select few testers, the free, real-time antimalware consumer solution (for fighting viruses, spyware, rootkits, and trojans) will be released in the second half of 2009.

MSE will be available as a standalone download for Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. The leaked version has separate installers for Windows XP 32-bit, Windows Vista 32-bit, and Windows Vista 64-bit. The software doesn't just work on 64-bit: there are both 32-bit and 64-bit flavors. The download sizes range from just over 3MB to just over 7MB, and as you can see above, the leaked build number is 1.0.2140.0. Microsoft is getting ready to put Morro into testing soon, so expect the first public build to be newer than this one.




Microsoft warns that MSE should not be installed alongside any other antivirus application. Indeed, the MSE installer disables Windows Defender completely.





The first thing MSE does after installation is grab the latest virus definition files.

Opera releases Opera Mobile 9.7 beta

The Opera Mobile 9.7 Beta will include the following great features:

  • Improved rendering engine
    Opera Mobile 9.7 Beta uses the Presto 2.2 rendering engine, which will also be used in the Opera 10 desktop browser. Presto 2.2 offers faster page loading, and we're excited to use this state-of-the-art rendering engine and be at the forefront of standards support with 100/100 on Acid 3.
  • Opera Turbo
    Finally we can show you Opera Turbo on mobile! Opera Turbo accelerates the browsing experience by reducing bandwidth consumption up to 80%. Many of you will be familiar with Opera's compression technology from using Opera Mini, and with Opera Mobile 9.7 you'll get the best of both worlds - a full-fledged browser with extra Turbo capabilities. It's not the full version of Opera Turbo yet (yes, that's a Beta feature in a Beta release), but we couldn't wait to show you this cool feature.
  • Improved Widget Manager
    Opera Widgets are small, handy Web applications that run locally on your mobile phone. Our new Widget Manager has improved usability and design, and runs independently from the browser.
  • Gears
    Gears is a Google open source project that enables more powerful web applications, by adding new features to your web browser. Read more about Gears on Opera Labs.
  • OpenGL ES
    Hardware acceleration with OpenGL ES support, ensuring smoother scrolling, panning and a more fluid user interface.

* Installation on storage card is now possible, and the Beta happily coexists with preinstalled versions of Opera Mobile.
* Better IME support (although a lot of non-standard 3rd party IME applications still make this a difficult task).
* Better performance and feedback when clicking links.

Opera Turbo is a server-side compression technology that compresses data up to 80% before it is sent to the mobile phone. Opera Turbo speeds up your browsing experience significantly when you are on a low bandwidth network (like EDGE). You will however not notice such a big effect when you're connected through WiFi or a high-speed mobile network. You can turn on Opera Turbo in the advanced section in the browser settings. Opera Turbo for Opera Mobile is still a preview feature, and we appreciate all feedback.

Microsoft's Antivirus Morro Screenshots

The software codenamed "Morro" after a beach in Sao Paulo, Brazil, is already being tested by Microsoft employees and a trial version will be made available "soon". Microsoft has stated that Morro would be available by the end of 2009 at the latest.

"Morro" is likely to be targeted to compete with the low end of anti-virus products from other providers, and it will not have much of an impact on sales of full-blown security suites. According to Janice Chaffin, president of Symantec's Consumer Division, "Microsoft's free product is basically a stripped down version of the OneCare product Microsoft pulled from the shelves. A full Internet security suite is what consumers require today to stay fully protected."
Microsoft announced last year that they have a plan for providing free anti virus which is named as “Morro” and will be available for users in the mid of 2009. More over Mircrosoft said that they will discontinue sale of Windows Live OneCare product subscription by this end of the month (June 30, 2009).

Morro will be providing comprehensive protection from malware including viruses, spyware, rootkits and trojans.




P.S: This is not an officially released screenshot, so there may be a change in the interface

No Internet Explorer in Windows 7 for Europe

Microsoft has announced that it will ship a special version of Vista's successor in Europe, titled Windows 7 E, without Internet Explorer 8. The browser-less version, a reaction to an antitrust investigation by the EU into whether Microsoft is abusing its dominant position with Windows and Internet Explorer, will be distributed in all member nations of the European Economic Area as well as Croatia and Switzerland.

Windows 7 E is reminiscent of media-player-free Windows XP N and Windows Vista N, which Microsoft offered in Europe also in response to an EU antitrust investigation. Unlike the N versions, which proved to be very unsuccessful—as Europeans simply purchased the full retail versions and OEMs refused to include them on their systems—Microsoft is not planning to offer a version of Windows 7 in Europe that includes IE8. This means that none of the versions of Windows 7 sold in Europe will include a Microsoft's browser.

As first reported by CNET and confirmed by Microsoft, OEMs will have the option to add the browser back in, ship another browser, or ship multiple browsers. "The E versions of Windows 7 will include all the features and functionality of Windows 7 in the rest of the world, other than browsing with Internet Explorer," Microsoft notes. "Computer manufacturers will be able to add any browser they want to their Windows 7 machines, including Internet Explorer, so European consumers who purchase new PCs will be able to access the Internet without any problem. Consumers will also be able to add any Web browser to their PCs, to supplement or replace the browsers preinstalled by their computer manufacturer."

Microsoft notes that the decision affects both OEM and Retail versions of Windows 7 products. While OEMs will have access to a free "IE8 pack" that allows them to add the browser back in, consumers who purchase retail copies will not have a browser that they can use to download a browser. Therefore, Microsoft will offer IE8 via CD, FTP, and retail channels. It looks like Mozilla, Opera, Google, and Apple will have to do the same if they want European Windows 7 adopters to have access to their browsers.

Microsoft does not currently have plans to remove Internet Explorer from any versions of Windows XP or Windows Vista, nor from the Windows XP mode add-on for Windows 7 Professional and Windows 7 Ultimate.

Recently, the EU has been asking companies what they saw as the best way to remedy the browser-bundling situation, and was even considering a way to get Microsoft to bundle third-party browsers with the operating system, forcing users to choose which browsers to download and install as well as which to set as the default. Microsoft wasn't so keen on the idea of distributing third-party browsers, so it has apparently taken the matter into its own hands and decided to remove IE8 altogether, knowing that the EU already approved of the N editions.

This isn't what the software giant originally wanted to do, as it had previously argued in its legal filings with the EU that the browser was an integral part of the operating system. With the release of the Windows 7 Release Candidate, Microsoft has made it possible to remove IE8 (the beta did not allow this), along with many other Windows components. [W]e’re committed to launching Windows 7 on time in Europe, so we need to address the legal realities in Europe, including the risk of large fines," says Microsoft. "We believe that this new approach, while not our first choice, is the best path forward given the ongoing legal case in Europe."

The European Commission is of two minds on Microsoft's move, pleased by the possibility of OEMs being able to offer multiple browsers, but disappointed that Microsoft itself is not providing consumers with the choice. "As for retail sales, which amount to less than 5 percent of total sales, the Commission had suggested to Microsoft that consumers be provided with a choice of Web browsers," the EC said in a statement. "Instead Microsoft has apparently decided to supply retail consumers with a version of Windows without a Web browser at all. Rather than more choice, Microsoft seems to have chosen to provide less."

The timing of this decision is quite ironic: the browser space has never been as competitive as it is now. Furthermore, rivals continue to chip away at Internet Explorer's market share month after month. Still, third-party browser makers like Opera, Mozilla, and Google have been pushing the EU for tough sanctions against Microsoft. Unless the EU has objections to Microsoft's decision, it looks like new Windows 7 PCs sold in the EU will be IE-free.
