"I’m getting rather tired of people ranting on about the inferiority of text-based conversation such as MSN, ICQ, AIM, Yahoo! messenger, G-talk and IRC. The prevailing opinion seems to be Face to Face vs Instant Messaging that face to face communication is hands down superior to online text conversations, because face to face includes body language, intonation, facial expressions, physical contact and so on.

The story goes that consequently there is a huge information loss during online communication because of the aforementioned features lacking in text-based conversation. Efforts to bridge this gap, like the usage of emoticons in text-based conversation, merely constitute a poor substitute..."

"A worm targeting Skype's VoIP application is harvesting e-mail addresses and directing users to a range of sites hosting other malicious software, security vendors said Monday.

Once a machine is infected, the worm sends a malicious link via instant messages to other users in person's Skype contact list, according to F-Secure's blog.

The link leads to an executable file that downloads a Trojan horse capable of downloading other malicious software, F-Secure said. It then shows a photo of a "lightly dressed" woman."

When login in MSN Messenger, CheckMessenger.net uploads your list of contacts and compares it to the lists in the server to find out if the users in your list have deleted or blocked you.

After evaluating the situation, in less than a minute it shows the information obtained so that the user knows the real Status of its contacts.

The only way to display the list of contacts is connecting to the servers of Microsoft MSN Messenger.

CheckMessenger.net doesn’t save any of the information of the users of the website.
The email addresses and passwords entered to find out which contacts have deleted or blocked you are only used to show you the results you are looking for, and they will not be saved by CheckMessenger.net.

MSN Messenger 6.0, MSN Messenger 7.0, MSN Messenger 7.5, Microsoft Windows Messenger, Messenger Live, or any other version of MSN Messenger that you use is supported by our program to find out who blocked you in the Messenger.

"Hackers have built their own encrypted IM (instant-message) program to shield themselves from law enforcement trying to spy on their communication channels.

The application, called CarderIM, is a sophisticated tool hackers are using to sell information such as credit-card numbers or e-mail addresses, part of an underground economy dealing in financial data, said Andrew Moloney, business director for financial services for RSA, part of EMC Corp., during a presentation at the International e-crime Congress in London on Wednesday.

CarderIM exemplifies the increased effort hackers are making to obscure their activities while continuing to use the Internet as a means to communicate with other criminals. "They're even investing in their own custom tools, their own places to work," Moloney said..."
