Is Jesse set to bare all? April 22, 2007Posted by grhomeboy in Entertainment.
Former Desperate Housewives star, Jesse Metcalfe, may have to strip off to bag his next role. The actor is rumoured to be replacing Daniel Radcliffe when his run in Peter Shaffer’s play, Equus, ends.
The star is expected to take on the role of a young man who has an erotic fixation with horses, in a play that has received rave reviews from many critics.
The move comes after Jesse recently checked himself into a rehab centre for alcohol abuse last month. News of Metcalfe’s rehab stint came after a report that he had indulged in four days of partying in Hollywood. He is currently dating Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle.
Househunk to replace Radcliffe? April 22, 2007Posted by grhomeboy in Entertainment.
Those who didn’t see enough of the often shirtless Jesse Metcalfe, as Eva Longoria’s underage lust object in Desperate Housewives, may be able to see a lot more of him soon.
The UK’s Mirror revealed that Metcalfe might have been tipped to replace Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe when he ends his run in Equus on London’s West End. Radcliffe’s role as a boy with an erotic fascination for horses requires him to strip down.
“Jesse is a massive talent, and it would be great for him to make his West End debut in Equus,” said the Mirror’s source.
PandaLabs reports adware posing as ActiveX control April 22, 2007Posted by grhomeboy in Internet Safety.
Pandalabs has discovered ImageAccesActiveXObject, a new example of adware that poses as an ActiveX control allowing users to view erotic pictures.
The adware reaches computers in the following way: when users visit certain web pages, a window opens offering erotic pictures. If the user agrees, another window informs that an ActiveX has to be installed in order to see them. This control, however, is really the adware ImageAccesActiveXObject.
“Before now we had seen adware disguised as codecs to see videos, but never as ActiveX controls for viewing pictures. This is another strategy for tricking users. They think they are giving their consent to the installation of a legitimate tool when really they are allowing adware to be installed”, explains Luis Corrons, technical director of PandaLabs.
Once installed, the adware takes users to a page with erotic pictures. However, they will not be able to see anything as the domain is not available.
PandaLabs has prepared a video to demonstrate the process. This is available at: http://blogs.pandasoftware.com/blogs/pandalabs/archive/2007/04/16/FakeImages_210021002100_.aspx
This malicious code also downloads other adware onto computers. The first of these is SpyLocked. This adware is designed to show messages to the user warning that the computer is infected, and detecting ImageAccesActiveXObject. It will not however allow computers to be disinfected unless users register the product.
“We had detected this adware before under names such as SpywareQuake or VirusBurst. What happens is that when the creators see that their tool is widely recognized by users and no one downloads it anymore, they simply change the name”, explains Luis Corrons.
ImageAccesActiveXObject also downloads the adware Securitytoolbar. This is designed to install a false toolbar and a BHO (Browser Helper Object ). It displays pop-up ads and creates links on the desktop to certain web pages.
Users who want to know whether their computers have been attacked by these or other malicious code can use TotalScan, the free online solution at: http://www.pandasoftware.com/totalscan.
They can also use the NanoScan beta (www.nanoscan.com), an online scanner that detects active malware on computers in less than a minute.
