Here are some of the most significant bugs from the past week in the BugBlog:
If you have a first generation 512MB or 1GB iPod shuffle, when you turn it on you may see amber and green LEDs flashing for a few seconds, but you won't be able to get the iPod to play music. To fix this on a Windows computer, get the iPod shuffle Reset Utility 1.0 for Windows or for Mac. Note that the utility will erase all the music on the iPod and reinstall the iPod 1.1.4 software.
Adam Smith's "invisible hand" of competition has brought real benefits to the world of browsing. The new Mozilla Firefox 2 and the new Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 both have anti-phishing filters built in. They should help in keeping you from being tricked into giving information to fraudulent sites. Mozilla and Microsoft both explain how this is done.
Secunia has a report of a bug in Microsoft Internet Explorer 7. It may be possible for attackers to create a pop-up window that will have a spoofed and misleading address bar, with only part of the address displayed. This could be used as part of a phishing scheme to trick users into disclosing information to a malicious website. You can see the details, including a proof of concept.
