How to tag all the friends in Facebook comments in one go!

Hi all,

Here's a script that you can run in your browser console, and it will automatically tag(mention) all your friends in Facebook comments under a particular post.

This will send them notifications and help you grab instant 'Likes', 'Comments' and 'Shares' on your Facebook posts.

STEP-1
Navigate to that Facebook post.



The URL should look something like this:
https://www.facebook.com/patikgujral/posts/256367601221269 

STEP-2
Open the browser console by pressing F12.




STEP-3

Copy paste the code (I have uploaded it on my Google Drive) into the browser console.
You can find the code HERE.

Press Enter.

Voila! Just sit back and see your friends get mentioned in comments!

Disable Autoplay Facebook Videos in News-Feed


Facebook has lately implemented Adobe Flash Player to directly play the videos in the news-feed. But sometimes it is really annoying especially if you have a limited internet plan or connected to an access point that is powered by mobile data(usually limited and costs dearly).

So, I have figured out a way to disable the 'Autoplay' feature of the videos in the news feed. Ultimately, it should be my call to play them or not. Right?

Assuming that you are using Google Chrome, just follow the simple steps:

Yes! You are HACKED! (PART-5)

The FINAL post of the 'Yes! You are HACKED' series.

Sure sign of system compromise No. 9: Your antimalware software, Task Manager, or Registry Editor is disabled and can't be restarted
This is a huge sign of malicious compromise. If you notice that your antimalware software is disabled and you didn't do it, you're probably exploited -- especially if you try to start Task Manager or Registry Editor and they won't start, start and disappear, or start in a reduced state. This is very common for malware to do.

Yes! You are HACKED! (PART-4)

Part 4 of Yes!You are HACKED series!


Sure sign of system compromise No. 7: Unexpected software installs
Unwanted and unexpected software installs are a big sign that your computer system has likely been hacked.
In the early days of malware, most programs were computer viruses, which work by modifying other legitimate programs. They did this to better hide themselves. For whatever reason, most malware programs these days are Trojans and worms, and they typically install themselves like legitimate programs. This may be because their creators are trying to walk a very thin line when the courts catch up to them. They can attempt to say something like, "But we are a legitimate software company." Often times the unwanted software is legally installed by other programs, so read your license agreements. Frequently, I'll read license agreements that plainly state that they will be installing one or more other programs. Sometimes you can opt out of these other installed programs; other times you can't.

Yes! You are HACKED! (PART-3)

Yes! We are back with the PART 3 of the series 'Yes! You are Hacked!'
In case you missed the earlier posts. you reach both PART-1 and PART-2 here.

So after having posted the 4 signs of your system being compromised, here comes the fifth and the sixth!

Sure sign of system compromise No. 5: Your friends receive fake emails from your email account
This is the one scenario where you might be OK. It's fairly common for our email friends to receive malicious emails from us. A decade ago, when email attachment viruses were all the rage, it was very common for malware programs to survey your email address book and send malicious emails to everyone in it.

Yes! you are HACKED! (PART-2)

Missed PART-1? Read it HERE!
So, here comes PART-2 of 'Yes! You are HACKED!' series. Read on, it may be possible that you may be a victim and you don't know!

Sure sign of system compromise No. 3: Redirected Internet searches
Many hackers make their living by redirecting your browser somewhere other than where you want to go. A hacker gets paid by getting your clicks to appear on someone else's website, often those who don't know that the clicks to their site are from a malicious redirection.

You can often spot this type of malware by typing a few related, very common words (for example, "puppy" or "goldfish") into Internet search engines and checking to see whether the same websites appear in the results -- almost always with no actual relevance to your terms. Unfortunately, many of today's redirected Internet searches are well hidden from the user through use of additional proxies, so the bogus results are never returned to alert the user. In general, if you have bogus toolbar programs, you're also being redirected. Technical users who really want to confirm can sniff their own browser or network traffic. The traffic sent and returned will always be distinctly different on a compromised computer vs. an uncompromised computer.

Yes! you are HACKED! (PART-1)

Here are 11 sure signs you've been hacked and what to do in the event of compromise. Note that in all cases, the No. 1 recommendation is to completely restore your system to a known good state before proceeding. In the early days, this meant formatting the computer and restoring all programs and data. Today, depending on your operating system, it might simply mean clicking on a Restore button. Either way, a compromised computer can never be fully trusted again. The recovery steps listed in each category below are the recommendations to follow if you don't want to do a full restore -- but again, a full restore is always a better option, risk-wise.

Creating a "CON" Folder in Windows !!!

Ever tried making a folder with a name "con" or any folder with names such as “prn”, “nul” “com1″, “com2″, “lpt1″...  and sadly failed --- "the specified  device name is invalid". Now the question arises Is it impossible to create folders with such names in windows? "

Well the answer is NO and YES !!! 



NO because, when create a new folder and try to rename it to any one of the above specified names, you know what happens! In Windows XP the folder name automatically changes back to “New Folder” no matter you try to renaming it any number of times. Where as in case of Windows Vista and Windows 7, when you try to rename the file you get an error message saying “The specified device name is invalid”.

What is the reason behind this? Simple, these names represent the internal devices of the operating system and hence we cannot create folders with the above names.
YES because it is still possible to create these folders using some simple methods as explained below:

Facebook login with THREE Different Passwords

Yes, You can access your Facebook account with 3 different passwords .

Facebook allows the following variation of your passwords:

1. Your Original Password:
Let us assume that you are using "breakTheSecurity" as password. Yeah, you can log in with your default password ;)

2. Your original password with the case reversed(Toggle case):
This one will be interesting one. You can toggle the case of your Password and use it.

For instance, your are using "breakTheSecurity" as your default password. In this password, 'T' and 'S' is Capitalized.

If you toggle the password case, then your password will become "BREAKtHEsECURITY".

3. Your original password with the first letter capitalized:

If the first character of your password is in lower case and you change it to Upper case, you can still login with this one.

For instance, the original password is "breakTheSecurity" . In this password, the first character 'b' is in lower case. If you capitalize the first character, then your password is "BreakTheSecurity".

The reason for 3 Passswords for your facebook account
It is not security flaw. It is just feature provided by Facebook.

"We accept three forms of the user's password to help overcome the most common reasons that authentic logins are rejected. In addition to the original password" Zdnet quoted as Facebook spokesperson saying. " we also accept the password if a user inadvertently has caps lock enabled or their mobile device automatically capitalizes the first character of the password."

Three different Usernames:
1. You can use your Facebook 'Username' as user name(if you have created)
2. You can use your email address
3. You can use use your mobile number ( if you have registered your mobile number on Fb).

Computer attacked?

!!..Signs That Your Home Computer Is Infected By Spyware or Adware..!!

There are a number of indicators you can watch for which will suggest that your computer has been infected by spyware or adware. Please note that some of the symptoms listed below are not unique to just a spyware or an adware infection.

1) PC Performance – Both Spyware and adware consume your PC's resource like computer memory. Abad spyware infection could dramatically slow your computer'sperformance including causing your system's to become increasingly unstable. Spyware also can affect your internet connection speed as it takes up bandwidth to communicate information back to its creator.

2) Pop up Ads – It is highly likely thatyour computer is infected by Adware if you notice more pop upads appearing than usual. In some cases pop ads start appearing on the desktop even if you have not opened a web browser. Alternatively, search results may appear in a pop up or another browser window relative to the website you are visiting or keyword term you have typed intoa search engine.

3) Browser Toolbars – These programs are commonly bundled with free software which the publisher often describes as "advertiser supported." The toolbar then feeds adverts based on the website you visit. They are usually very difficult to uninstall. "180 Search Assistant" and "Huntbar" are example programs.

4) Browser Settings – Your internet favourites or bookmarks and startpage are two main settings whichare targeted by spyware authors. Web sites are inserted into your list of internet favourites in the hope that you will visit them. Browser hijackers change the start page which is visited when the browser loads. Any unexpected change to your start page is a sign of infection.

5) StartUp Programs – Some spyware variants will try to add themselves to your Windows start up program list. If you boot up time becomes noticeably slower then review your program start up list to check for applications you are not familiar with and remove them. This program list can be review using the " MS Config" option from the Windows XP Run command.

6) Software Failure – A spyware infection can cause someof your programs to crash or stopworking. In particular watch if your Internet Explorer browser refuses to work all of a sudden.

7)Hosts File Changes – The Hosts Fileis a Windows file that maps the numerical IP Address to the Host Name very much like the address book on your cell phone "maps" your friend's name to their telephone number. Some spywareprograms can change these setting so that when you type in"www. yahoo.com" for example you are re- directed the spyware author's website.

See Infrared Radiation



A human eye is the most delicate part of the body. It helps us to see the beautiful world. But is that the only world that we see? Well the answer is 'No'.

Human eye has the capability to perceive the electro magnetic radiation which has wavelengths ranging from 400nm to 700nm. The Infrared Radiation(IR) has wavelength greater than 700nm. This means that a normal human cannot see IR.




But I'll tell you how is it possible to see the Infrared Rays.

Tools for cleaning WEB space


Simplify your Gmail 
ActiveInbox is an extension for Chrome and Firefox that puts a new set of options in your Gmail. These tools allow you to set deadlines or reminders for individual emails, mark them as a priority, sort them by their importance, and label them to become parts of a project for easy accessibility in the future. You can also create your own rules for emails using the ActiveInbox toolbar. 

For example, suppose you get a mail from a colleague asking for a sales report. If this task is important and needs immediate attention, you can sort it into 'action' . Or if the report is due after a few days, you can mark it as 'later' and set a reminder for it. Filtering email in this task-based manner forces you to take an action on every Gmail message and helps sort out your emailing priorities. 
Get it here.

Fix Auto Brightness Issues On the iPhone


The iPhone automatically adjusts screen brightness based on ambient lighting, but it doesn't work as well as some would like. Luckily the ambient light sensors can be manually adjusted so that they behave correctly. By following a few easy steps, Auto-Brightness can be reconfigured to correctly respond to changing light conditions.
Users can switch Auto-Brightness off completely if they wish, but we recommend spending a couple of minutes resetting it and leaving it on for the best experience and to prevent eye fatigue.

How to Fix Auto Brightness

To properly configure the Auto-Brightness of your iPhone you will need both a bright flashlight and a dark room. These two things help to configure the light sensor so that the iPhone will adjust correctly

What DNS does

A DNS(Domain Name System) converts the user friendly Hostnames(like hotmail.com) which users can understand, to IP Addresses- which the computer systems and networks can understand.

When you type www.hotmail.com in your browser, the browser performs a search (or lookup) to find the machine readable IP Address to communicate with the host(the hotmail server).
So the browser first contacts with the DNS Server set up by your ISP, and tries to look up for the IP conversion of the hostname it wants to contact.
