How do You Install XvidCap on uBuntu 12.04 Distro

Xvidcap is a small tool to capture things going on on an X-Windows display to either individual frames or an MPEG video. This software is not present in the Ubuntu 12.04 repository by default. You can get a copy of the distributed binary in the form of a .deb package at the following link.

Once you download this package, go ahead and install the package with the following command. The amd64 package given as example is for 64 bit machine.
$ sudo dpkg -i xvidcap_1.1.7-0.2ubuntu12_amd64
In case if the above command fails giving out errors, please note that Xvidcap depends on libavdevice-extra-53 package. So go ahead and install this package first with the following command.

$ sudo  apt-get install libavdevice-extra-53
By default, the Ubuntu 12.04 comes with libavcodec53 package. This conflicts with the  libavdevice-extra-53. In such a case, feel free to go ahead and replace the libavcodec53 package with libavdevice-extra-53. This satisfies the dependency requirement for Xvidcap.

Once done with setting dependencies, you can then install the Xvidcap package.

POSSIBLE WordPress Under Attack again !!!

ALERT - ALERT - WordPress Based website under attack Again !!!

Potential WordPress problem (Brute Force attack against WordPress websites)
We have monitored on-going brute-force attack against WordPress websites, in order to keep your WordPress website secure, we recommend you do the following:

1. Please change your password for WordPress admin area.

2. Go to your cPanel > File Manager and find your wp-login.php file.

Temporary rename wp-login.php file (for example into wp-login1.php).

You need to change a line in your wp-login.php to reflect the change to the file name. Its line 671 where the form action refers to wp-login.php


wp-login.php is temporary disabled because of huge brute force attack. Please rename wp-login.php to something else.
