Fake & Stolen Facebook Accounts are on Sale !!!


Researchers from iDefense Labs, a division of VeriSign, has tracked an effort to sell login data for 1.5 million Facebook accounts on several online criminal marketplaces, including Carder.su. According to Rick Howard, director, cyber intelligence, iDefense, a hacker, who used the screen name ‘kirllos’, was recently offering to sell bundles of 1,000 Facebook accounts with 10 or fewer friends for $25 and with more than 10 friends for $45.

Criminals steal login data for Facebook accounts, typically with ‘phishing’ techniques that trick users into disclosing their passwords or with malware that logs computer keystrokes.

Google Search displays virtual keyboards in 35 languages, including Hindi


Google has integrated a virtual or on-screen keyboard into Google Search in 35 languages, including Hindi, Persian and Malayalam, that will allow users to type directly in their local language script. According to Google, if one uses Google Search in any of the supporting languages, he would see a small keyboard icon next to the search field, on both the Google homepage and search results page.

“Clicking on that keyboard icon brings up a virtual keyboard in your language. You can input text by either clicking on the on-screen keyboard or pressing the corresponding key,” Manish Bhargava, product manager, Google Internationalisation, has said. “We hope virtual keyboards help you find information more easily — especially those of you who speak/type/read in non-Latin scripts.”
