YouTube's shiny new HTML5 embed code is now live

Most of you have probably embedded a YouTube video at one time or another, even if it's just to share it on Facebook. Because copying and pasting is so easy, you might not have paid much attention to the embed code itself, though. Well, now's a good time to start looking, because YouTube is changing to a shorter, more compatible embed code, using the <iframe> tag. What does that mean to t...

Facebook "Like" boxes randomly sprouting baby Facebooks - they're not very cute

We have yet another story of failure. The Facebook "Like box" that's currently inhabiting TechCrunch's sidebar apparently began randomly growing miniature Facebooks on Thursday as users visited the site while logged into the network.

If you do any computer service - either as a job or a favor to friends and family - you've no doubt seen the end result of these attacks. Fake antivirus applications continue to be the biggest source of business...

Yahoo! owned RightMedia has been serving ads to popular networks such as MySpace, Bebo and Photobucket that could wreak havoc on visitors' machines. The Trojan which was reported to have been inserted by a third party ad server, was tracked down to RightMedia. The infected banner ad supposedly ran several million times over a three week period after it was first spotted on August 8th by a web sec...
