Vector Graphics Editor – UBUNTU

Windows equivalent : Adobe Illustrator


Ubuntu equivalent : Inkscape

Inkscape is a free software vector graphics editor, licensed under the GNU General Public License. Its goal is to implement full support for the Scalable Vector Graphics 1.1 standard. An Open Source vector graphics editor, with capabilities similar to Illustrator, CorelDraw, or Xara X, using the W3C standard Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format.

Inkscape is cross-platform and runs on Mac OS X (typically under X11, although the underlying GTK+ toolkit can be compiled to run natively under Quartz),Unix-like operating systems, and Microsoft Windows. Inkscape’s implementation of SVG and CSS standards is incomplete. Most notably, it does not yet support animation. Inkscape has multi-lingual support, particularly for complex scripts, something currently lacking in most commercial vector graphics applications. The word Inkscape is a portmanteau of the words ink and landscape.

sudo apt-get install inkscape

HackeD By Dr.SHA6H | Fuck All Site


I do not know how many of you had it … but It happened to me. I recently found two sites that were done on WordPress platform and who were on the same server affected by a Dr.SHA6H. Who is it, and what he does in his spare time … does not really matter, the fact is that the two sites continued to display the text “Hacked by Dr.SHA6H | Fuck All Site” and the content of those sites were inaccessible.

On one of these sites I tried to fix it by reading the files in it. I found something in header.php, functions.php and footer.php. I tried to remove the extra code and I could not get rid of the error. I searched the database and found that it was damaged and trying to fix it, I ruined the structure of it. Finally for this site, I had it  fixed by reinstalling a new database and recovery of the remains of the old one.

For the second site I said to ask ‘friend’ Google if someone has been affected and published how to fix this. I have found something useful here and it helped me a lot to fix on the second one.

I have found a widget that I disabled in the Appearence—->Widgets.

I have found Site Title changed and I recovered it from Settings—->General.

I have found UTF7 instead of UTF8 and I restored into Settings—–>Reading.


That was it. The site is now up … unharmed …

I hope it will be useful to you … but it’s better to not need … right?

Someone said that a child should operate a computer around the age of 15 years. Someone else said that a child should not get interdiction only limitation. Prohibition attract curiosity but putting limits you can do it directly or indirectly. What if you could put some limits without those around you knowing that? What if you had the opportunity to somehow filter content page?
Of course there are many tools but today I stopped at one: Scrub Public DNS. Continue reading Hello ScrubIt !!! This is Public DNS
