READ ME AT FACEBOOK HTTP://FB.ME/SSRUBLEV

Recently, I tend to write my notes and add photos mainly at Facebook, so you can read me there — http://facebook.com/ssrublev — either Follow, or ask to be friends — I friend everyone who has a human name (not organization). You can also follow me at a number of other popular sites such as Instagram — http://instagram.com/ssrublev (full list at http://m.ssr.host.ru).

You can leave comments at WordPress.com here if you like.

Bug Reports

If you want the world you live in to be better, you have to report bugs to developers so they can review it and, if needed, fix it — with your generous help, of course.

Google virus

Google virus

I have infected my PC with a virus via Google Chrome extension taken from chrome.google.com domain. This is a real virus, there are many reports on it on extension’s bug page, and these are ignored by Google, virus gets spread from this domain, and one report say that it has a KEYLOGGER within. It isn’t recognized by my extrafresh-updated Windows Defender on extrafresh-updated Windows 8.1. It has affected my Linux OSes since it uses Chromium’s JavaScript. What is most amazing — it has penetrated into my hardware SoHo router and injected a viral hosttable into it! Redirecting popular websites like Google and Wikipedia to virus gateways trying to infect me even more. Infected router shows me virus websites on my Android telephone when connected to Wi-Fi. So, at the time, I am forced to hunt it and postpone my normal activities since I need to have a healthy PC to do what I need. I post research results and screenshots here: https://www.facebook.com/ssrublev/posts/780199955325517
