Maybe you want to join WikiProject Computer Security?

Hi HamburgerRadio, I just saw the good work you're doing to all kinds of virus and trojan related articles. Maybe you can consider joining Wikipedia:WikiProject Computer Security, a wikiproject dedicated to exactly those kinds of articles? Hope to see you there! --DanielPharos (talk) 13:49, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

I'm aware of it, I just don't feel like pigeonholing myself. --HamburgerRadio (talk) 17:45, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
OK, no problem! Keep up the good work! :) --DanielPharos (talk) 18:32, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
I don't feel right asking for assistance without joining it, so I added myself. --HamburgerRadio (talk) 20:25, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

World Peace (computer virus) & MacMag (computer virus)

You suggested merging these two articles. I have now done so. JamesBWatson (talk) 13:36, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

A-403 (computer virus)

A significant portion of the computer virus articles are stubs. A vast number of computer viruses are listed, but no article for them exists. Said articles and lists are subject to vandalism, and many others are of unacceptable quality.

It may be desirable to have some minimum criteria for including a mention of a virus in Wikipedia, as well as some conventions to avoid copyright issues. Can you suggest any ideas?

Perhaps a virus needs to be listed by at least three antivirus sites in order to receive mention on one of the lists of computer viruses, worms, etc. This would help manage the lists, but I'm not sure what a "good" virus article looks like, though it's easier to say what should not be in a good virus article.

Having an agree-upon standard for virus articles established would be nice (e.g. all computer virus articles shall be suffixed with "(computer virus)", as in "Foo (computer virus)"), and let us delete more virus articles in a uniform way. More specifically, a standard for the articles' content. In practice, enforcing such standards across Wikipedia is a nontrivial maintenance burden, but a bot or two might help.

Still, there could be some educational value in the shorter virus articles, but I suppose that's a matter of taste.

Thanks, A-Day (c)(t) 21:44, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

I'm not much of a deletionist, it was just the only solution to an unsalvagable article in this case. In the general case, a list should be easier to protect from vandalism. The decision of whether to break an article from the list is an editorial decision; if there's enough info, that it can't be contained in a list format, then break it into its own article. Of course the info should be from a reliable source, so of course that limits which articles have a lot of info, and thus which make it as articles.
If there is a minimum number of mentions, it should be at least two, first because single source articles make for bad writing, second because there may be copyright traps of descriptions of non-existent viruses.
I don't agree with "computer virus" after every title; it seems to be at odds with Wikipedia naming standards. --HamburgerRadio (talk) 23:45, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Rollback granted

I have granted rollback rights to your account; the reason for this is that after a review of some of your contributions, I believe you can be trusted to use rollback correctly, and for its intended usage of reverting vandalism, and that you will not abuse it by reverting good-faith edits or to revert-war. For information on rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback and Wikipedia:Rollback feature. If you do not want rollback, just let me know, and I'll remove it. Good luck and thanks.

Portuguese People

Deleting all the sections of alleged Muslim and Sub-Saharan sections that some little Tacobell Hispano wrote is not violation; it is giving back the offense and insult to a race which is in every way more European and White than Moorish Spain ever will be. Do not attempt to repost that filth about the Portuguese. It is totally untrue, exaggerated, based on fabrications and lies. If you wish to put that inforamtion on Spain; that is much more appropriate- their language has over 4,000 Arabic words, Portuguese has about 800; so based just on the cultural-linguistic statistics, there is something VERY wrong with this alleged Muslim nonsense. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.5.167.221 (talk) 19:50, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

I'm not an expert on the topic but the sources appear good. If there is an error, correct it(and show your sources), rather than blanking the entire section. Or use Talk:Portuguese people --HamburgerRadio (talk) 19:57, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
Whatever may be the validity or otherwise of the information in question, the statement that suggesting that Portuguese people have significant African ancestry is "offense" and "insult" is straightforward racialism. Generally speaking, expressing racialist views is likely to antagonise others, and reduce, rather than increase, support for your position. JamesBWatson (talk) 14:53, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
FWIW, I was reverting what appeared to be obvious vandalism. I won't revert it again; if there's a problem, take it up with the original authors or the article's talk page. --HamburgerRadio (talk) 00:22, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

Law of Cosines

HamvergerRadio, please note: The "Laws of Cosines" is plural, NOT singular. There are three formulas based on the article's triangular drawing. They are as follows

${\displaystyle a^{2}=b^{2}+c^{2}-2bc\cos(\alpha )\,}$
${\displaystyle b^{2}=a^{2}+c^{2}-2ac\cos(\beta )\,}$
${\displaystyle c^{2}=a^{2}+b^{2}-2ab\cos(\gamma )\,}$

You can Google the "Laws of Cosines" and verify this easy fact.

Hello, I don't intend on discouraging you if you are making good faith edits. I'm not a math expert, your edits just set off some red flags to people watching recent changes. It may help to :

I have no idea why you have reverted - "turnip" is ambiguous - in Ireland "turnip" means a yellow turnip - Americans call these "Rutabagas" (which I have never heard of but is the Wiki article name) and English call them "Swedes" - I merely clarified by linking to the corresponding Wiki article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 164.129.1.42 (talk) 18:44, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

Yep, he is blocked, thanks. To any admin looking at this, the anon IP was adding false warnings of vandalism to my page, after I warned the IP about real vandalism they were doing. My reverts were to remove the harassment from my own talk page. --HamburgerRadio (talk) 19:26, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

Edit wars

What's the deal with the STOPzilla page ? there has clearly been an attempt to sanitize any negative remarks about the product. Look at the history, even reviews in published magazines have been deleted. It's clear fact that there are many reports of negative experiences. Are you an employ of the publisher ? What other motivation could you possibly have to defend this page so aggressively ?

If you want to bring the information in the article in line with what published sources say, feel free. As long as it's verifiable. --HamburgerRadio (talk) 02:20, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
Here's the problem, There is *LOTS* of negative info out there but if you are going to require that forums and discussions are not good enough then we are at an impasse. I know of other pages that use such as source, I was going to list them, but thought better of it. If negative information may not be posted then we should return the warning that was displayed on top of this version that indicates that reads like and Add, or just remove the page entirely as it is currently just propaganda and spam. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.126.0.230 (talk) 16:27, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
The exclusion of forums as a source is Wikipedia policy and not my choice. If you think the advert tag would help, then add it back. --HamburgerRadio (talk) 19:14, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
How do I go about reporting what I believe are edits on the Stopzilla page by an employee of company that makes it. ? 74.223.130.162 has chronicly deleted (even referenced) negative material about the product and geobytes puts that ip address within an hour of the IS3 address. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.126.0.230 (talk) 19:03, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

Moved this page from Officer of The Salvation Army to Officer in The Salvation Army. When you apply to become an Officer, it states that you are applying to be an "Officer in The Salvation Army".

Welcome to the war on vandalism. I have reverted what appeared to be vandalism to your user page.

Hamburger,

I see that you feel that undid my edit. Does this mean that mentioning any and all pending litigations for every company on wiki is something you condone.

Does this mean that in the history of every company on wiki I should go around and mention their pending litigations, especially when that poses a direct violation of the Terms of Use and the neutral point of view of this site.

I look forward to hearing back.

Thanks.Megaman2008 (talk) 04:18, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

I reverted the edit as it appeared to be unconstructive. If there is an actual content dispute I won't get involved. But, I think you are misinterpreting WP:NLT as it doesn't mean that Wikipedia can't report on legal threats reported in reliable sources. So yes, Wikipedians can report on pending litigation that has been reported on in reliable sources. As to whether they should in each specific case is an editorial decision, and I'm not going to get involved in an content decision here. --HamburgerRadio (talk) 04:27, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

Please don't be so quick to revert changes using Huggle, particularly where they are by inexperienced users. It shouldn't have taken too much work on your part to find the intended target for the link and doing that would have been more helpful than warning them about linking to non existent pages.

On a slightly different issue, I note your userpage was created by someone else against your wishes and has been the target of vandalism.

In the David Napier article, the reference to the Gazetteer for Scotland is incorrect. Read it!

She was afterwards called the "James Gallacher," and plied on the Clyde. Her dimensions were as follows: Length, 62' 8"; breadth, 13' 0"; depth, 4' 6"; gross tonnage, 49 36/94 tons.

comp win linux

Your edit to Comparison of Windows and Linux where you removed the following:

If malicious software is installed on a Linux-based system, locating can be equally difficult, but removal is much easier. Malicious source code can simply be deleted, and the software recompiled.

Security: whaaa? recompiling is easier than (unspecified) alternatives? it's uncited so i'll just remove that

allows me to meet you and share answers to these situations.

1. Wikipedia:Editing_policy#Try_to_fix_problems:_preserve_information
2. The alternative is re-installation of the entire OS or application.
3. {{citation needed}} works like a charm.

Now, I'm going to discuss as if we were on the talk page discussing the removal.

Issue: "locating can be equally difficult". No. You just run an automated system scanner.

Issue: "Removal is much easier." Now, say both the Linux and the Windows infection will be in the binary form of an equally obscure file tucked deep inside some package. In order to delete the malware, the infected file would have to be reverse compiled. Microsoft does not allow it. The reverse compiled version would not be diff-able. You'd have to have been the author or a maintainer or someone very familiar with the source code to find what to delete.

Issue: "The alternative is more difficult". The original Windows OS or application installation file must be located. Linux source is on disk. How difficult would it be to find and extract that file from the package? It is entirely context dependent. It depends on knowing the package name, which depends on the file: it could be obvious, or not, depending on where in the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard the infection was found. An installation process is composed of several automated subprocesses, most of which are big and dangerous, but some of the install apps have a "repair" option, which seems safe and easy enough. With Linux recompiling is easy: gcc filename.c.

My last statement:

We should put it back, but change it to

If an infected file is located on Linux, it is possible to do a surgically precise repair or replacement without out re-installing the entire package or operating system, even if the kernel is infected.

What do you think? — CpiralCpiral 06:37, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

Well, in my defense, the sentence as it was was just wrong on so many levels, that trying to fix it would say something totally different, and that section was already kind of stretching logic. As for coming up with an alternative, or explaining my own reasoning, I'd like to take that to the talk page of the article. --HamburgerRadio (talk) 08:43, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

Second, hosts-file.net WHOIS information is registered with Domains By Proxy, which doesn't exactly fill with confidence. Third, they don't want to be used as a source [2] --HamburgerRadio (talk) 17:21, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of VirusTotal.com

You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles. See the Article Wizard.

Thank you.

A tag has been placed on VirusTotal.com, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article seems to be unambiguous advertising that only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the general criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item 11, as well as the guidelines on spam.

If you can indicate why the subject of this article is not blatant advertising, you may contest the tagging. To do this, please add {{hangon}} on the top of VirusTotal.com and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would help make it encyclopedic, as well as adding any citations from independent reliable sources to ensure that the article will be verifiable. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.

This article had the advert tag removed after only minor additions, and since only uncited info has been added. Alexa and mention in a 100 item list in a three year old PC World article are the only listed secondary sources. WP:NOTE WP:RS Unixfg (talk) 02:51, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

Fairfax County Public Schools

FYI - I have protected the Fairfax County Public Schools article from editing due to the current content dispute. Please discuss the issues on the talk page and attempt to reach a resolution there. Requests for specific edits to the article can be made by and adding a {{editprotected}} template to the talk page after demonstrating consensus for the change. Thank you. -- Tom N (tcncv) talk/contrib 04:42, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

AfD nomination of BloodhoundV2 Trojan Horse

An article that you have been involved in editing, BloodhoundV2 Trojan Horse, has been listed for deletion. If you are interested in the deletion discussion, please participate by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/BloodhoundV2 Trojan Horse. Thank you.

Since your userpage seems to be suffering from an excessive amount of vandalism. I have taken the liberty of giving it full protection. If you would rather that was not done, feel free to ask me or any other admin and we will undo it for you. Likewise if you would like to add some content while it is protected, create a page with the content in and someone will move it there for you. I hope this is helpful.DJ Clayworth (talk) 21:03, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of MyWay Searchbar

Please refrain from introducing inappropriate pages, such as MyWay Searchbar, to Wikipedia. Doing so is not in accordance with our policies. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. Bryzal (talk) 02:54, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

Hmm

You seem to be inactive, but, just out of curiosity, on the off chance that you see this... you wouldn't happened to be named Paul, would you? (That's all I'll ask, per WP:OUTING.) — PinkAmpers&(Je vous invite à me parler) 01:51, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

Nope. --HamburgerRadio (talk) 21:46, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
Ahh. Used to be a guy at my school who often used "Hamburger" as a username on websites, and I happened to notice that you'd edited the article on the school long long ago. Odd coincidence. — PinkAmpers&(Je vous invite à me parler) 10:43, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
