Show Long File & Folder Names on the Mac OS X Desktop

Posted: 25 Nov 2011 11:46 AM PST

Show long file names in Mac OS X

Recently we covered how to show full file names on the Mac OS X desktop, avoiding the abbreviated labels that occur when a file or folders name is too large to fit in the allowed character count limit. That trick was done by increasing the desktops grid size, but as one of our readers pointed out in the comments, you are still limited to a maximum of 20 characters in a file name. Using a defaults write command, this can be adjusted to display very long file names without shortening them. As you may have guessed, this is achieved by increasing the desktops grid size even further.

Increase the File Name Displayed Character Limit in Mac OS X

The displayed character limit can be increased to virtually any number, for the purpose of this tip we’ll increase the file names character limit from 20 to 50.

Launch the Terminal from /Applications/Utilities/ and enter the following command.

defaults write FXDesktopLayoutGridCharCount 50; killall Finder

Entering this command will change the count and immediately restart the Finder so changes take place. If you want fewer or more characters, adjust the number on the end accordingly. The screenshot at the top of this post shows a 100 character limit, but too large a number can look strange, making 50 a good compromise for showing long file names and not making a disaster of the desktop.

Restore the Default File Name Character Limit
defaults write FXDesktopLayoutGridCharCount 20; killall Finder

Using the above command, the Finder will also restart and the desktops file name limit will be restored to the default setting of 20 characters.

Thanks to Brah for the great tip left in our comments

Update: Additional testing and user feedback suggests the defaults write trick may work in Mac OS X 10.6 only. For OS X 10.7 Lion users, increasing grid space works to the same effect but doesn’t require Terminal intervention.

The Future of Siri is Now: Start a Car, Adjust Home Thermostat, and More [Videos]

Posted: 25 Nov 2011 10:44 AM PST

Siri Starting a Car “Siri, start my car”, “Siri, Set the thermostat to 72 degrees” – saying that to the iPhone and having an AI agent perform those tasks sounds futuristic doesn’t it? It’s not from the future though, it’s now, thanks to the ambitious work of a third party developer who created something called Siri Proxy.

As the name suggests, SiriProxy is a proxy server to Apple’s Siri assistant that allows for creating custom plugins that perform virtually any function, including tasks like remotely starting a car, locking and unlocking car doors, and even querying and controlling a home thermostat. The potential here is huge, and none of it requires any on-device hacks or jailbreaks because it’s handled away from the iPhone on a remote server.

Due to it’s very early stage in development, setting up Siri Proxy isn’t the most easy thing in the world. You’ll need an iPhone 4S, and some experience with Ruby, certificates, web servers, and OpenSSL (you’re setting up a web server, after all). If that’s you, check out the source code and instructions on how to get it working here.

Here are some videos of Siri Proxy in action:

Siri starting and stopping a car remotely

Siri controlling a home thermostat

Siri locking and unlocking car doors

On the SiriProxy projects page you can find more videos of third party implementations, including Siri interaction with Twitter, Dreambox, Plex, and even retrieving sports scores.

With so much obvious potential, it wouldn’t be terribly surprising if Apple wound up opening Siri to iOS developers. Apple pays close attention to third party hacks and isn’t afraid to embrace some of the ideas born from these outside developers, the most recent example of which includes a wide variety of the features in iOS 5.

Heads up to MacGasm and Adem Semir for the video links.

How To Secure Facebook Account From Hackers

Posted: 25 Nov 2011 11:01 PM PST

Facebook is always at the top of Hacker's list due to its large popularity, ease to use, connects large number of people,  large collection of applications, many more. Facebook was launched in 2004, as of January 2011, it had more than 600 million active user. A hacker can get many useful information about anyone with Hacking his or her Facebook Account and can destroy anyones social life with it. Due to large number of attacks on Facebook everyday, it is trying to deeply secure its data from attackers. Many new awesome security feature had been built to secure its users, but loophole is always there.

Some days before Facebook had built a new security feature, it is Login Approval  similar to 2-Step Verification. As I have already mentioned a post about 2-step verification, if you have read that post then you must have some knowledge about it. Anyways back to the post.

What is Login Approval?

Login Approvals is an opt-in security feature similar to Login Notifications, but with an extra security step. With Login Approvals, each time you try to access your Facebook account from an unrecognized device (ex: any computer or mobile phone you haven't named and saved to your Facebook account), you will first have to enter a security code that's been sent to your mobile phone. 

How to turn on Login Approval?
To turn on Login Approval in Facebook
  • Go to your Account Settings page and select the change option next to Account Security.
  • Check the box under Login Approval ( If you don't have a mobile phone number linked to your Facebook account, you will need to add one).
  • If you are haven't named the device you are on, you will be prompted to do so when you turn on Login Approvals. Do not click the "Save this device" option if you are using a public device (ex: a friend's phone, a library computer). Note that all of the devices linked to your Facebook account (ex: your recognized devices) are listed under the Login Approvals section.
What will happen after turning on the Login Approval?
After turning on this feature whenever you will login to your Facebook Account from any other unrecognized devices you will be ask to enter a security code which will be sent to your mobile. 

You will see something like this:

Google 2-Step Verification V/S Facebook Login Approval?
Google 2-Step verification is far most better than Facebook Login Approval because Google 2-Step verification also provide some backup codes in case of mobile loss or other and  in case when you can't receive verification code due to some network problem or else, you can also get a call from Google informing you about the verification codes, as compared to Facebook Login Approval. Facebook may also work hard to compete with Google 2-Step Verification.
i hope you really enjoy it this post !!

Google Lauches A New Authenticating Process

Posted: 25 Nov 2011 10:53 PM PST

Hello Today I am talking about a new authenticating process which Google had launced, its  2-step verification. 
Using 2-step verification will help prevent strangers from accessing your account with just a stolen password. When you sign in with 2-step verification, you'll verify your identity using both a password and a code that you receive on your phone.

Why you should use 2-step verification
2-step verification adds an extra layer of security to your Google Account by requiring you to have access to your phone – as well as your username and password – when you sign in. This means that if someone steals or guesses your password, the potential hijacker still can't sign in to your account because they don't have your phone.

How you sign in with 2-step verification

  1. When you want to access Google products from your browser, go to that product and enter your username and password.

    image of brain with arrow to sign in 
  2. You'll next be prompted to enter your verification code, which you'll get from your phone. You'll only have to do this once every 30 days if you so choose.

    image of phone to verification screen 
  3. Soon after you turn on 2-step verification, non-browser applications and devices that use your Google Account (such as Gmail on your phone or Outlook), will stop working. You'll then have to sign in using your username and a special password you generate for this application. (Don't worry, you'll only have to do this once for each device or application.)

    image of application-specific password to phone

What you'll need

While 2-step verification requires some web savvy, you only need a few basic items:
  1. A phone that is usually available to you when you sign in. This could be:
    • A standard phone (landline or mobile)
    • Any Android device, BlackBerry device, iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad that can run the Google Authenticator application
  2. A backup phone that you can use if you lose access to your primary phone. This could be:
    • A work or home phone (landline or mobile)
    • The phone of someone you trust, like a friend or family member.

How to get started

Go to your Accounts settings page and look for the Using 2-step verification link. If you have the link, click it and start the setup process.
If you do not see the link and you are a Google Apps user, you might have to access the 2-step verification setup through a special URL. It is also possible that your domain administrator has not yet set it up for your organization. Check with your domain administrator to find out.

Website Hacking Best Techniques By Dailyhackingtips

Posted: 25 Nov 2011 10:39 PM PST

Everyday, you search in Google, Yahoo, and other search engines, "How to Hack Websites?", "Methods to Hack Website", "Website Hacking", etc. Website Hacking have become a popular business or rather an interesting game for many people, reasons behind this hack is normally to prove their skills and to get fame, or anything else. As we know, "To catch a thief, we must think like a thief", like here also, we can conclude that to secure a things, we must first find insecure in it, then we can proceed on securing. So, before proceeding to the topic of securing we must first know what is insecure in it.

There are many drawbacks by which websites are compromised, these is normally due to the poor management of site by the webmaster or admin.

So, the methods by which websites are hacked are:
  • Cross-Site Scripting
  • SQL Injection
  • Remote File Inclusion
  • Local File Inclusion
  • Denial of Service Attack
  • Brute-Force Attack
These are some of the common methods to hack a website, let's discuss them below.
  • Cross-site Scripting: Cross-Site Scripting is a type of attack in which a hacker inject script into webpages. Their effect may range from a pretty nuisance to a significant security risk. By this way of injecting codes into webpages, a hacker can gain access to sensitive page content, session cookies, and a variety of other information which are maintained by the browser on behalf of the user. 
  • SQL Injection: SQL stands for Structured Query Language, SQL Injection is a another type of web application vulnerability occurring in the database layer of an application. It is mostly used for stealing sensitive data (like Username, Password, Email ID, many more). It takes advantages of improper coding in the web application that allow the attacker to inject SQL commands.
  • Remote File Inclusion: Remote File Inclusion (RFI) allows an attacker to include a remote file, usually through a script on the web server. A hacker usually upload a file (normally a shell) by tricking the web server on the webpage. 
  • Local File Inclusion: A Local File Inclusion (LFI) is a method to include local files on runtime. This is much same like RFI. This method involves the discovering of /etc/passwd/ file in the web directory.
  • Denial of Service Attack: Denial of Service Attack (DoS attack) or Distributed Denial of Service attack(DDoS attack) is an attempt to make the computer resource unavailable to its users. These are the common attack nowadays, its main purpose is to obstruct the communication of the victim's computer by forcing the targeted computer(s) to reset.
  • Brute-Force Attack: Brute-Force Attack is a method in which an attacker tries to crack every possible letters of the password until the whole password is cracked. The main drawback of this attack is that it takes too much time while cracking the password, as it tries every possible character which can be a part of the password.
There are many other ways too for taking over a site, but these are nowadays very common.

Some others methods are DNS Hijacking, Insufficient Administration, Misconfiguration, Uses of Trojans, many more.

My advice to all the webmaster or admin is to check their site against these vulnerabilities as to protect them from future attacks.

How to update your Facebook status via Calculator

Posted: 25 Nov 2011 10:20 PM PST

Another worthy post for Dailyhackingtips readers, in this I will show you "How to update your Facebook status via Calculator / NASA Satellite / Trojan Horse / etc / etc". With a rapid growing popularity among people about Facebook. it is really an awesome trick to fool your friends. You must have seen many status updates via fishy devices like calculator, iron, NASA Satellite, many more, now you would be thinking that "How is it possible?", in reality it is of-course not possible but still you can update your status by playing a trick. The trick is very simple, cool, and very effective.

There are two ways which I have found by which you can update your status with these comical devices, one is very easy, you can do so using a website which allow you to do so, another is by using Facebook API keys (API key is an unique code that is assigned to the Facebook Apps when they are created). So, lets move on discussing them in detail.

Step- 1
There is a website which allow Facebook users to update their status via amusing devices. The site contains a huge collection of cool gadget for updating the status. This method is pretty splendid.

  • Firstly visit this site: FunnyFacebook
  • There are two option for updating, first to update the status using their devices and second to do so by creating your own device.
  • I will be discussing the first method only, as if you want to create your own device, the site will direct or give instruction regarding this, to you.
  • Click on "Browse For More Funny Devices..."
  • You will see different categories and device names, choose any one from there, You can also use the search box there to find other devices too.
  • After then Click on "Update Via Device Name", "Device Name" will be changed with name of your device which you had selected.
  • Then a Pop-up will emerge, write your status there and click on Share.
Hurray! You have updated your text. Thats all, visit your profile and see the magic. 

Step- 2
This method involves the using of Facebook API keys, it much same like the above method. This method is much more interesting as in this we will be doing the update by ourself.

  • Open a new tab in your browser.
  • Now copy and paste this in the URL Address field: _Key

  • Replace the 'API _Key' with a valid Facebook API key (A list of API keys are provided below).
  • A page will load, there write your status and at last click on Share.

Check SQL Injection in Best 3 Steps

Posted: 25 Nov 2011 03:09 AM PST

This is my post at Dailyhackingtips friends, I am very glad and happy to write it. I have heard a lots of people nowadays ask on How to Check SQL Injection   I hope you will really enjoy it 
So Today I'm learning SQL injection (SQLi) indepth so I will try teaching you guys a little of that as well.SQLi is the most popular attack on any website these days.There has been an enormous increase in SQL programmers and websites,and the biggest problem with SQL is "Either your perfect/hacked".Due to poor
coding programmers often leave vulnerabilities in their site and hackers its our job to inform them and patch them up.So lets see

how to check if a site if vulnerable to SQLi

Since this is still the basic,there is nothing much to do.All you have to is:

1.Get a site which uses SQL queries.For your convinc,in simpler terms it is any site which has "".You must have seen tons of such sites.Note: NOT all sites which have "=" use SQL queroes it might also use "PHP Get/Post method".

2.Once,you have a site like then just intersert a inverted comma(') like this "'".

3.If the site is vulnerable to SQL then it would return an error something like this.You might get an error like this "
You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '\' AND single_group = "S"' at line 1"

This error need not be the same always,as long as you get an error you can tell that the site is vulnerable to SQLi and its up to you to become a her and report to the site admin.
