Google, the Internet search giant could drive profound changes in the media, entertainment and technology landscape in 2006. It's gonna be a Google fueled paranoia with Google cornering the market on low cost PCS! The Google-branded computers would be manufactured in China and sold below $199 in Walmart stores throughout North America. Loaded with Free Gmail accounts and one gig of online storage space, a googlized version of Linux, the mini-computers would run what was essentially a Google made operating system, employing Google's vast array of free, membership based services, server-side software features along with the host of other real and anticipated Google features.

The do gooders google will unveil video purchase options and a new downloadable software pack from the company at Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week. A number of announcements are expected to emerge as Yahoo's Terry Semel and Microsoft's Bill Gates will be there too! Let's wait for more to come our way this year 2006 - Btw, Was there any Nostradamus Predictions on the Cyber wars??? I hear that there gonna be a great Cyber War in time to come!

At least, Let there be No War on Web!!!

With the new year bells ringing in great happy hours of surfing on web, here comes the Trojans riding on the web horse! Indians are ever the inquisite 'Hackers' - Yeah, I mean it as I came across a lot of guys who played the tricks and boasted the savvy types. Talk of Ankit Fadia - And you find him as Featured story of Ankit Fadia's Hacking Books and his tricks of the Hacking game. Every journalist (who don't understand Internet roads) interviewed him and placed him on top of the hack charts - ugh oh!!!

Well, right now, I gonna talk of the Trojan Horse I mentioned. reports that a new, deceptive Trojan Horse program has surfaced. The program is engineered to produce fake Google ads that are formatted to look like legitimate ones. The ads are incorporated in Google AdSense, the program that lets website owners display ads from Google’s list of advertisers. The Trojan Horse apparently downloads itself onto an unsuspecting computer through a web page and then replaces the original ads with its own set of malicious ads.

It's been Raoul Bangera, an Indian web publisher who discovered a bogus program and contacted Adsense Team. Bangera emailed the team a number of cases, including various screenshots, log files of an infected computer and system files as proof. The AdSense team validated the news saying, “We can confirm from the screenshots that these are fake Google ads, formatted to look like legitimate ads. We agree that this phenomenon is likely the result of malicious software installed on your computer.”

This is not for the first time Google adsense has been hit. In January 2005, Google took immediate action and removed some ads that caused malicious code to be installed on visitor’s computers. Google is smart enough and can let no loopholes at their end.

I only wonder, Raoul Bangera could be a net savvy or know the tricks of the web? Smart google will find smart ways to rule the web, indeed!
