Their method is simple very simple to geeks and Power Users. Just have a look:

a. Type about:blank in the Firefox address bar
b. Now click List cache entries or directly type about:cache?device=disk (Disk cache device)
c. Press Ctrl+F and try to location the flash file by typing some part of website URL or the flash file name or just .swf. After some hit and trial, you should be able to locate the swf file URL
d. Click the SWF URL to open the Cache Entry Information page. Right click on the link and choose "Save link as"

TEMPORARY INBOX & ANONYMOUS OUTBOX

Once there was a world. An internetless world! A googleless world! A boring world! Very slow world... A world without fun... A world without information... We are lucky today. We have all the fun. We have all we wanted. What’s more, whatever we wish for, we will get that from net. These days I had been searching in Mozilla Firefox's extensions. I got a hell of stuff more than I expected. The most interesting extensions I got were something amazing.

TEMPORARY INBOX

If you are a regular internet user, you may have troubled in sometimes to give your own email address to some sites because you fear of spam attack or your privacy Those times, I bet, you would be praying for another email address to submit. You may probably had one, but the usage of it would be very rare so that you forget passwords regularly. Isn't it? So the solution is a temporary inbox. Without logging in to get your inbox. An inbox without password. A handy inbox anybody can use. Easy inbox. A good disposable inbox. yourname@temporaryinbox.com.
Directly go to the site:[Click on the button below]

One of the main drawbacks of this service is, it does not support attachments. And you cannot send a mail from it.

ANONYMOUS OUTBOX

I said earlier that you cannot send mail from temporaryinbox.com. So what should you do for an anonymous sending? You wish to send an anonymous mail sending to some of your friends. And there is site for anonymous mail sending. https://www.anonymousspeech.com. As a matter of fact, it is not possible completely, because anybody can trace your ISP's IP address and track you down. But if you are sending anonymous mail just for a fun, nothing will happen. IP address tracking and such tracking will be done only by advanced users and Intelligence agencies. But you will get basic anonymity. And that’s all. After sending a mail in this site, you will get a note like this: This email was sent without our Anonymity Guarantee! AnonymousSpeech.com receives daily inquiries from people, requesting information about sent emails. If you need complete anonymity, please upgrade your account. I dont know what they will give additional options in paid service. I think for basic use free service is enough. Thats all. So, whats the moral? If you have a wish, submit it to google, it will tell you who will satisfy you, irrespective of subjects.

A minimal registration is required in this site. After the registration, you will get access to send mails from a temporary mail id. Bet, you will love it. Start anonymous sending. But never use this service for illegal purpose. That is very important

Do you hate spam? Yes? So do I!

But sometimes you have to give away your own email address for example at registrations just to activate your account. Now, that's no more a problem! Just enter a temporary email address from temporaryinbox.com and check the inbox on the site to read the mails. After 6 hours the mail will be deleted. Get your free temporary spam email address NOW and you will never have spam in your private account again.

Temporary Inbox 1.2, by pascal, released on Jul 2, 2006

This extension generates random disposable email addresses. Use those email addresses for registration at forums, adult sites or whatever. The email addresses don't need registration. This is an easy way to avoid spam, because the spamer never knows your private email address .. only the temporaryinbox.com email address. And there the mails will be deleted after 6 hours.
Avoiding spam is sooo easy!

Here is a small instruction:



FIRST! There is no registration required!!

1. The situation: You want to signup at a website or whatever. You are at the registration formular and you have to enter your private email address. 2. You don't want to give away your private email address. So you choose to use an email address from temporaryinbox.com. 3. Now click the "random email" button at the temporaryinbox firefox extension toolbar. 4. A random temporary email address has been generated now. 5. Copy it from the toolbar to the email address field in the registration formular. 6. Enter the other things and submit. 7. Now you can check the inbox of your email address on temporaryinbox.com. But it's easier to use the firefox extension. Just enter the email account name you used before and press "Check" 8. Now you were redirected directly to the inbox of your temporaryinbox account. 9. Open the email and click the activation link or copy the password... or whatever. 10. Delete the mail or let it be. However the mail will be deleted after 6 hours.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Nearly every content site on the Web requires “free” registration these days, which usually means you need to supply a working email address. All too often, that email address begins to attract spam as companies sell mailing lists to each other or crackers help themselves to poorly guarded customer information.

You can’t protect an inbox completely, but you can reduce your chances of facing a spamfest by being a little selective in handing out your email address. Many users keep an alternate email account on hand for throwaway registrations and other situations where privacy protection looks a little murky.

A free account at a Web-based email service such as Yahoo! Mail or Hotmail does the trick by protecting your “real” email address from unnecessary exposure. However, logging in and navigating through full-blown email sites can be a tiresome way to pick up a new password or confirm a registration; a more efficient method is using a fully disposable email address - Dive into http://www.temporaryinbox.com. And have a nice time

NEED OF NETWORK SECURITY - AN INTRO

Network security is a complicated subject, historically only tackled by well-trained and experienced experts. However, as more and more people become digital, an increasing number of people need to understand the basics of security in a networked world. This document was written with the basic computer user and information systems manager in mind, explaining the concepts needed to read through the hype in the marketplace and understand risks and how to deal with them.

Most of the common people are not aware about even some simple security measures. They haven’t even heard about it! Most of the people today have a user id and a valid password to open their own emails (mostly free email ids.) Do we really think about its security matters ever? When you open your inbox, or when you chat with an IM program like yahoo or MSN, or when you type your credit card details in an input text field of a particular site to buy something... Your privacy, your security... sometimes security and privacy both gets in danger. You are watched. You are always watched. Always. You hit by a dragon hacker. You die. But you still don’t know that. You are already a dead man. But the matter is you are not aware about it yet.

You may have some simple instructions from this blogspot. It gives you some simple precautions to the right way towards uncompromised security (Oh! Not that! I can only give you some simple instructions only; the rest is your destiny!) Which site you can trust... and what browser you can fearlessly use and what browser you have to avoid. What precautions you have to take when you get into a Wi-fi network.

Watch on
http://www.hackingtom.blogspot.com

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
You will be interested to know who am I.

Networking Security Wizard? Not at all. I just want to share the security issues I encounter day-to-day in my life. See, one day one of my friends told me that he can sniff any messages through the router which I am using and get into our privacy. But I didn’t believe that for the first time. So he gave me a tiny application which was developed under GNU Public. I experienced the reality very soon. That nothing is safe in electronic communication. Especially your privacy. You are being watched. Even in this very moment. But you will never know that. I wanted to tell about it to my friends and colleagues. But nobody found interested. Then I decided to start a blog to express my own experiences to make others aware about it.

Hacking and Security Precautions

Hacking and security. The main issue a digital being suffer today. I am going to write something about this issue in this blogspot in the coming days. Just wait for it....
