Check your PC after the Nu.nl hack

Yesterday, Dutch news site nu.nl was hacked. Unfortunately, they hardly inform the public of what exactly happened. But this site has a pretty good analysis and a page to check if you are vulnerable.

You can also use MS Safety Scanner to scan your computer, which is a good idea anyway.

I'm happy to say that my clients are all up-to-date and thus not infected.

Reconfigure nspluginwrapper

Yay, I just upgraded my nspluginwrapper and everything broke. Again. Couldn't use youtube or any of my other favorite sites anymore.

Running firefox from the console gave me some feedback:

*** NSPlugin Viewer  *** ERROR: NP_Initialize() get args: Message argument mismatch
*** NSPlugin Viewer  *** ERROR: rpc_end_sync called when not in sync!
*** NSPlugin Wrapper *** ERROR: NP_Initialize() wait for reply: Connection closed
NOTE: child process received `Goodbye', closing down

When I google'd around a bit, I found some commands for older/different versions of nspluginwrapper. Finally, I tried the parameters of the old binary on the new binary:
/usr/lib64/nspluginwrapper/npconfig -a -v -i
and got the output:

After this, my Firefox was running as usual.
