The Virtual World Technologist: Virus alert, more viral than virus

So the latest viral alert is about something called 2012 Package ExDepart Gift, or something like that (there are variants). The warning goes generally like this:
An object called** 2012 Package ExDepart Gift** is being sent to all people. Please do not accept it, is a virus, and they can steal account with it. Be careful with what you accept !

First, you should be aware that objects cannot steal accounts. At least not without your permission. If you rez something that wants to steal your account, first it has to ask for your password. Only with your password can it even access your account. 

Second, it cannot take any money from you without first asking, and LL puts up a big warning about it on your viewer, on which you must consciously choose to accept.

In reality, this object is a spoofing griefer. It knows who you are because you are the owner. It will then rez more items with you as the owner, and it will pass itself to others, thus propagating itself.

In a note from Rockcliffe University:
"If you receive an item called "..::ExDepart::.. Gift Package 2012" from ANYONE, even close friends, DO NOT REZ IT! This is a spoofing griefer item, it will take your UUID, and use it to rez items with your name as the owner to pass out more items. If you receive this item, make an abuse report with Governor Linden as the abuser, list any information you can think of to help, and remember the person that set it to you probably didn't do it. Then DELETE this item immediately! DO NOT REZ IT!"
Don't let Chicken Little convince you that the sky is falling, because it isn't. But heed well the generally-applicable warnings:
  • Do not accept inventory items from people you don't know. 
  • Do not accept inventory items from friends without first talking to that friend. 
  • Do not send inventory items to your friends withouht first letting them know.
  • Do not rez or wear anything that you did happen to accept by mistake. It's safer just to delete it.
  • If you receive some paranoid message from someone, and part of the message tells you to forward it to everyone you know, DON'T. Challenge it instead. Ask the sender where they got it, and how they verified it to be true. Better safe than sorry is not the right answer here.
Tell all your friends :)

special thanks to mister acacia who made this originally post.

Fashion by Double A Presents: BAD BOY AO and DAVIDE SKIN - PARTY

test adv 2 egovista silver 1024x676 The Bad Boy Event Skin Shopping Second Life Men Gift Freebie Fashion Evian Egoisme Business Beauty Arts
 When two top design talents in Second Life ™ come together to create a range of complementary products- you know you are witnessing something very special.
Vista Barnes (Vista Animations) and Ramses Meredith (Egoisme) have joined forces to produce a unique event for the men of Second Life which will showcase brand new products from both designers.
The ‘Bad Boy’ event runs on Saturday and Sunday 28th/29th July, and you can be the first in Second Life ™ to own brand new products and receive exclusive gifts from both designers.
Vista Animations:
The ‘Bad Boy’ AO is the latest release from Vista Animations for its male customers. This AO is designed for the urban man who rules the streets, a man who answers to no one and who plays life by his own rules.
It has a raw sensuality, gritty moves and is full of swagger; an AO for the man who takes what he wants from life and who always wins.
Modern, confident, and full of temperamental attitude – you will always remember the man who wears the ‘Bad Boy’ AO.
There will be a special ‘Bad Boy’ launch discount of 10% this weekend only, and there will also be a special free gift.

Fresh from Egoisme, the premier skin and shape brand in Second Life arrives a revolutionary new range of skins called ‘Bad Boy’.
This line of skins is the most realistic ever seen inworld, and has taken months of development time to create.
Featuring HDG (High Definition Grid) technology, these skins are ultra-detailed, and look incredibly life life-even when you zoom in close…you can even see the pores!
‘Davide’ is the very first skin and shape to be released in this new line, and he is the most sensual and erotically charged skin ever released by Egoisme.
This is a classically beautiful man, with razor sharp cheekbones, a voluptuous pout, super toned torso, rippling abdominals and sharply defined pectorals-this is one lean, mean, sex machine!

Fashion By Double A Presents: E-Clipse

Today I will introduce to you a new store, E-CLIPSE. 
Very well done clothes.
An easy way to put a military spin on all your ensembles is to invest in an olive-colored Comodore Jacket.
I paired with Savana pants. Both casual and sophisticated.

This winning combination is only practical for the rainy season, and surprisingly flattering on any man, be he 16 or 40.

Fashion by Double A Presents: Bad boys

Heed the call to take up arms against tough times with this nylon jacket from Egoisme. To carry  urban warrior trend throughout your look, add additional military-inspired fashion to this topper, like combat boots, heavily distressed denim, utilitarian shirts, and hardware-heavy bags and accessories. To keep things sleek and sexy, try wearing all black. Alternatively, pair this cropped jacket with slim-cut pants and a bundled scarf for a lighter take on this trend.

Fashion By Double A Presents: Work out

If you're tired of enduring cardio session after cardio session to get fit, you might want to give the newest training method a try: complexes. When your main goal is to lose body fat, cardio is one of the best options to achieve results. High-intensity interval training has become the preferred method over steady-state cardio as it increases the amount of calories you burn after the session is done, allowing you to burn a greater amount of fat for the remainder of the day.

When it comes to learning about how to dress for the gym, functionality should be your top priority. Style should be a close second, because even if you’re not looking to hook up with hot girls wearing spandex, your appearance should always be considered when in public in order to maintain your reputation as a well-dressed man.
My tip for today is the Mesh Suit Hoodie and Pants.

Alon wears:

Jackett: NyTrO - $$ MESH Big Suit Hoodie Light Blue Man 
Pants: NyTrO - MESH Big Musc Suit Pant Low Fit Light Blue
Shoes: NyTrO - $$ Skate Shoes  DC Blue Checkers

The Garment Rack: Definitely Diva, Ricielli

It seems that summer, and all the RL that comes with it, has thrown me off my blog rhythmn at least for the moment. Not to worry though, once everything settles down, I'll be back in full swing.

 Not to worry, though! I have not abandoned you all completely! In fact... while I was searching Ricielli on assignment, I found myself with way too many outfits and only in need of one, so... I'm going to share this one with you. Of course, good stylings are a bit of this and a bit of that so I have to bring attention to Salon de GLOW, courtesy of Egoisme, too!
