/* Filed under PSP    */


just recently posted version 1.970 of ISO Tool. This includes updated ISO decoding and patching. As well as new data key’s for more recent UMD releases.

ISO Tool 1.970 changelog:

1.970 [NEW] type corresponds to the decoding of 6 (CipherBridge.prx updated)
[NEW] menu ? “CipherBridge.prx” Adding updates
[NEW] DATA / key.txt some tag / key add (tag 0xD91615F0/0xD91616F0/0xD91619F0/0xD91620F0/0xD91621F0/0xD91622F0/0xD91623F0/0xD91624F0/0xD91628F0/0xD91680F0/0xD91681F0)

Instructions on how to make ISO’s load from the XMB with ISO Tool.

Make sure you place your legal ISO backup copy in the ISO folder of your memory stick or internal memory for the PSP Go. On my PSP Go I used my PSP-2000 to dump my UMD of GTA:LCS.

ISO Tool: With the Make XMB icon mode, ISO’s can be launched from the XMB!

Run ISO Tool under 5.xx CFW or 6.xx HEN, select which ISO you wish to run directly from the XMB menu with the Make XMB-ICON option. This will then make an eboot in the PSP/GAME folder which will run via the (Included in ISO Tool’s folder).

Trouble shooting:

CSO’s don’t work!

If your having lock ups with CSO’s try the M33 driver. Place the isofs_500.prx (Use PRXdecrypter and FW 5.00 to get this file) in the folder inside ISO Tool “DATA/PIL_V2? Then when you go to load a CSO, hold the left shoulder button when it boots to use the M33 ISO driver instead of the NP9906 driver.

ISO Tool: The end result after making an XMB ISO launch icon…

Catherine localization confirmed, gets NA release date

/* Posted March 1st, 2011 at 8:25am [Comments: none]    */
/* Filed under Video Games    */

There’s no stopping the wrath of Catherine now from crossing shores. She’s even breaking through the language barrier — and that’s a very good thing for you guys.





Retail store GameStop has opened the gates of Catherine’s wrath for the West when it pegged a July 26th release for it on North America. Earelier, Atlus has stressed time and again that they have no interest in bringing the game over to the west, despite the clamor from the fans. “Catherine is a Japan-only game and there are no plans for a NA release this time. Sorry about that,” said Atlus just last week, in response to reports that they will be bringing it to the west sometime soon.




Of course fans would want to get their hands on Catherine — er — the action-adventure puzzle game, I mean. After all, it’s got all the stuff that a man’s nightmare is made of. From demon babies to devil sheep, hot girlfriends and even hotter mistresses, it’s all here.









So, anyway, Atlus was denying the localization of Catherine. However, despite that, the publisher sent out mysterious e-mails to the press, which came in hot pink, “if we still like them”. The color scheme alone is enough to make us suspicious it’s Catherine-related, indeed, but it wasn’t until the following days that the buzz got stronger.




Until finally, we find the date sitting nice and pretty on GameStop’s page. That’s all the confirmation you guys need, for sure. Finally, this beauty of a game is no longer just “Japan-only”. While Atlus is confirmed to be the publisher for the North American release, however, it’s still up in the air as to who will take care of the European version.




It’s most likely going to be a toss-up among Tecmo Koei, Square Enix, SouthPeak or Rising Star Games. We’ll be keeping you posted for more info as they come, don’t worry.

Mac OS X Trojan catches Sophos’ eye

/* Posted March 1st, 2011 at 2:25am [Comments: none]    */
/* Filed under Web    */

BlackHole RAT

If you see this on your Mac, beware.


A new Trojan has cropped up and it’s targeting
Mac OS X users, one security firm says.

According to Sophos, the Trojan, called “BlackHole RAT” by its author and “MusMinim” by the security firm, is a variant of the Remote Access Trojan on Windows. The author of the Trojan says the malware is not yet completed, but it already does some annoying things.

Overall, Sophos believes that the prevalence of the Trojan is relatively low. The malware can be removed by using antivirus software.

If a Mac becomes infected, the Trojan places text files on the desktop, puts the computer to sleep, commands it to restart or shutdown, and runs “arbitrary shell commands,” Sophos says. It also loads a phishing window to get users to input their administrator password. When a full-screen window pops up forcing users to restart their computer, a rather disconcerting message is displayed.

“I am a Trojan Horse, so I have infected your Mac Computer,” says the text in the Trojan, according to Sophos. “I know, most people think Macs can’t be infected, but look, you ARE Infected! I have full controll (sic) over your Computer and I can do everything I want, and you can do nothing to prevent it.

“So, Im a very new Virus, under Development, so there will be much more functions when I’m finished,” the text continues.

The text in the Trojan will surely fuel the long-running debate over whether Mac OS X really is more secure than Windows. Those in the Apple camp point to the numerous Windows security issues that have broken out over the years, compared to the few on Mac OS X, to try and prove that Apple’s platform is more secure. Those in the Windows camp believe security is a money game, and malicious hackers have more revenue to generate by targeting all the Windows users in the world, rather than the smaller number of Mac OS X users. It’s simply that hackers have ignored Mac OS X, they say.

Sophos says that BlackHole RAT infects computers through downloads over the Web. It might also find its way to the user’s Mac through “a vulnerability in your browser, plugins, and other applications.”


Securely Store and Manage Passwords With Sticky Password

/* Posted March 1st, 2011 at 2:25am [Comments: none]    */
/* Filed under News    */

Good: You can organize your passwords easily with Sticky Password. Bad: I still have over 400 to file.
Sticky Password ($30, 30-day free trial) helps you manage your ever-growing collection of passwords. I have about 400 of them stored in Mozilla Firefox, and I doubt I’m atypical. Many are useless or outdated; far too many are identical or similar. It’s easy to slip into very bad habits, and to forget that even if you don’t care if your log in to a minor blog site is hacked, you could lose it all if you use the same password for something more important. Further, you have passwords and codes for things other than Web sites–bank accounts, home security, credit cards.

Lamantine Software recognizes that most of your password-related activity is going to be on the Web, and puts browser integration front-and-center in Sticky Password. It fetched stored passwords from my copies of Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and Firefox–and can work with many others, including Flock and Maxthon (but unfortunately, not Opera). When integrated,Sticky Password will attempt to auto-fill forms with stored log ins and will detect when you’ve entered a new log in or used a different password, and will offer to change it for you. You can choose not to use this integration feature; I’ve found it works with most forms, but not all.

Of course, you need a password for your passwords. With Sticky Password, you need to remember only one, so it ought to be a strong password, a long and complicated string that takes advantage of all the oddities your keyboard has to offer. The password file itself is encrypted and useless without you manually entering the key; this makes it safe to back up–which you’d better do, once you’ve memorized one password and forgotten all the others. To help you create new passwords (or change your old ones to something other than YourPet’sNameHere) Sticky Password includes a straightforward generator that can be set to include or exclude various characters.

Sticky Password includes a portable version, so that you can take your passwords with you on a USB drive. Because of the encryption, they’re safe so long as your master password can’t be easily cracked or guessed, though I wouldn’t recommend storing, say, nuclear launch codes. It also can be set to auto-lock after periods of inactivity, which is vital in a shared environment such as an office.

My complaints about Sticky Password are minor. You have a single database, while other programs allow multiple databases. The interface is split between Manage Database, Password Generator, and Settings, each of which must be invoked separately from the taskbar icon. Auto-filling of passwords can be sporadic.

Sticky Password is very comparable, feature-wise, to KeePass, which has the advantage of being free and the disadvantage of not being quite as browser-aware. My very subjective personal experience after using both is that I find the user experience of Sticky Password preferable, but I am still very much on the cusp of whether or not it’s preferable enough to be worth paying for. With a fully functional 30-day trial, there’s ample time to decide for yourself.
