    Script errors in Director usually display details describing why an error occurred. However, once a projector or Shockwave movie is created, generic script errors sometimes appear, such as “Script Error, Continue?” These errors can be difficult to troubleshoot if there is no information describing why the error occurred. Join Macromedia Senior Technical Support Engineer Boaz Englesberg who will be leading a live demonstration on debugging movies using the alertHook command and a Director.ini file. Boaz will demonstrate how to use alertHook and the Director.ini/Shockwave.ini file for debugging purposes at run time.

  • MSN Messanger Worm – W32/Bropia

    Anti-virus vendors have raised the threat level on a double-barrelled MSN Messenger worm that lures users with the promise of sexy image files.

    MSN Worm - Sexy Image

    The worm, identified as W32/Bropia, arrives as a download link within MSN instant messaging sessions, but instead of sexy photographs, infected users get an image of a cooked chicken on a platter with a neatly drawn bikini tan line.

    The worm also deposits a variant of the Rbot backdoor Trojan that is capable of using infected machines to create zombie networks, security experts warn.

    So be Aware!!
