How to clear your AutoComplete History

AutoComplete is a feature offered by many browsers to keep track of information that you have recently typed, such as website address, and form information (like login forms). Its purpose is to try and anticipate what you are typing so that it can provide you with possible matches and thus save you time. But sometime you don’t want other people to know that you are searching right :p (you get what I mean when you are reading this).

so here is how you can remove autocomplete entry from firefox and Internet Exporler, for this example we be using IE7 and firefox 2

Fire up your IE7 and go to “Tools -> Internet Options ” click on the general tabs find a buttons under the “Browsing History” part labeled “Delete” it should look like this:

Choose the want that you want to delete and obviously we want to delete the auto complete which is the “Form Data” :) click delete forms and you are done!.

On Firefox go to “Tools -> Options -> Privacy” On the Private data section which is located at the bottom of the tab click the “Clear Now..” button a pop ups that look similar to this will show up:

Choose the type of data you want to clear in our case it would be “Saved Form and Search History” and you are done.

Note: In firefox linux/unix it not the same the option can be found in menu “EDIT -> Preferences” .

If you want to disable auto complete permanently you do it by configuring it in the option

1. In IE7 “Tools ->Internet Options -> Contents tab” click on the autocomplete setting and uncheck check stuff that you don’t want.

Movies week!!

Me and my soulmate being carving for a movies that wont make us SLEEP in the cinema, the last movies we seen that can be considered worth the money we pay is Alvin and the chipmunks then last week we try to watch the so called Cloverfield that almost make me PUKE in the cinema chair LOL (Note: I Don’t Like anything LIKE a FPS GAME!!) it make me dizzy :p and I end up frustrated with the quality of the current movies these day, oh forgot to mention that I also watched In the Name of the King that also quite boring that almost make me sleep half way but I try to keep my self awake :p.

So today (actually just a few hours a go :P) watched the all old time war heroes when I was a child :P Rambo 4 , Finally my long wait paid off, finally someone did make a movies that worth paying for, Even the plot is still the same as the old rambo movies, someone get into trouble john rambo came to save the day but the bloodiness and the brutal killing and the gun and explosion oh I almost forgot the kewl sniper that blew the evil soldier (DAM HEADSHOT :P) can make you forget about that and the end of the movies, So I recommend you go watch it at the cinema you won’t get the feel when watching those pirated copy :).

My Next movies in my wishlist is :

Iron Man, The Dark Knight (Batman) and Meet The Spartans ( a parody of 300 :D) can’t think of other that interesting right now :)

Secure Your Wifi! NOW!

This messages is for those who OWN a wireless router.

Why I urge you guys to secure it?, I recently moved to a new place since the new house have no telephone line which mean I have no internet access until I get the phone line (DAM!). So booted my Ubuntu and plugged my D-Link DWL-G122 usb wireless stick to my notebook (I haven’t used it for while because my notebook have internal wifi card)

So you guys much be wondering why should I use it now, It because DLink DWL-G122 Rev C1 are commonly known for cracking Wireless AP :) and I urgently need an Internet access (You should get the point) . So you have configured your AP to use WEP either 64 or 126 bit hex key and you it think it secure enough, guess what you might want to think about it again, with a proper sotfware tools, knowlage and hardware (which I do meet the requirement :p) now days I can easily Crack WEP configured router for WPA it can be done too but we malaysian like too use password that commonly not listed in any password list in the net :D (Good for those WPA guys are safe from me :p).

Around my house (I’m at the 6th Floor btw) I can see average 5-7 AP available, In just 30 minutes I cracked most of them :p, just a few that take a bit longer because it have no client active when I’m doing the cracking. WEP is actually safe for common people but IT NOT SAFE AROUND PEOPLE LIKE ME! SO BEWARE! >:) here some tips help you guys strengthen up your wireless networks.

  1. If you going to use WEP combine it with MAC address access list so only your pre-define MAC address can connect to your AP.
  2. Use WPA!! and with a not common use password combine it with letter and number!! So if some realy want to crack your AP it will give him a lot of time to do it or maybe fail and give up :p
  3. !!!CHANGE YOUR DEFAULT ACCESS POINT ROUTER!!! don’t think you configured using WEP no one will able to connect, example all of the crack AP around my house still using the default password for the router ADMIN this is common mistake when people think there are secure enough!!
  4. !!!CHANGE YOUR DEFAULT ACCESS POINT ROUTER!! <– MANDATORY!! (just to make sure you remember! :P)
  5. Always check your Access Point Log if you configured DHCP check the client list!! make sure NO UNWANTED people connecting!!!

I really really really really really recommended using WPA because even using MAC Address List I can still connect by spoofing the MAC access to a Valid Mac address that allowed by the Access Point!. Unless you are like me that own 2 firewall that I can configured it to block any IP that not in the access list so I don’t really mind someone manage to crack my WEP key because they wont get anywhere with it :D

Thanks for reading my 1st can be considered useful for some people :D
