Posted by 23 March, 2010 (1) Comment

Happened with ESET’s NOD32 once when everything was being flagged as Kryptik.JX trojan but this time its BitDefender, they pushed an update file that rendered Windows 64-bit systems useless since many were falsely flagged as Trojan.FakeAlert.5 and moved to quarantine. This might have left many users with a useless non-bootable Windows or other problems. Here is the solution to fix the false alarm by BitDefender which detects important files as Trojan.FakeAlert.5.

The BitDefender products effected were: Home user, BitDefender Business Client and BitDefender Security for File Servers.

“Fatal error: Class ‘scbWidget’ not found” Solution

Posted by 12 February, 2010 (3) Comment

New version of the popular WordPress Plugin WP-UserOnline version 2.60 has arrived but with a problem. A small piece of code is missing for some reason and it gives the following error when its being enabled.

Fatal error: Class ‘scbWidget’ not found in /wp-content/plugins/wp-useronline/wp-useronline.php on line 515

The solution for it is very simple; if you have upgraded to version 2.60 and are getting the fatal error then login to your FTP and edit wp-useronline.php file, the fault lies in very first line so it’s very easy to find. It currently looks like,

< ?php
/*
Plugin Name: WP-UserOnline

All you have to do is add include ‘scb/Widget.php’; under the very first line so it looks like this.

< ?php
include 'scb/Widget.php';
/*
Plugin Name: WP-UserOnline

(Remove the space between < and ? php

and you are done, just activate the plugin. For those of you who are either lazy ;) or do not understand what I am talking about. Here's updated version of the Plugin with the fix applied to it. Just download it, login to your WordPress and add it via upload.
