Create your own portable applications

Application Virtualization Solutions (Portable Aps Creation Programs and Utilities available June 2012)

After days of researching solutions for converting some of my programs (applications and games) into portable aps I settled on a VMware® Workstation running a Virtual PC with Windows XP Pro 32 bits with ThinApp as the default virtualization program. The avilability of snapshots to quickly reverse to my orginial clean staus after an install/capture session is what I like best. Over time I fonund that some programs and games just do not work on this particular portable aps creation solution.

What I need is a simple set of features, really, not for PhD scientists:

1. Easy Setup. The virtualization utility should Install easily on a Virtual Computer running Windows XP through 7 (and 8 when it becomes available)

2. Easy capture. Intuitive and easy to understand steps: scan system before, scan system after, build portable application

3. Easy portable application launch 

4. Good containment = The application should not 

5. Good comptibility

I will only use pass/fail grades

 

So after digging through references and various sources identifying who owns who and what and where it is,  here is my current list:

VMware ThinApp (Free Trial): Pass

The Dark Side of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Using CSS to hide spam links Passive malware, on page – off screen (OPOS) links, stealth dark links

The Dark Side of Search Engine Optimization (SEO): Using CSS to hide spam links

Passive malware, on page / off screen (OPOS) or stealth dark links, and how to avoid being abused by black hat optimization hackers

Excerpt: 

I have discovered by accident, during a routine page source check, some “alien” code lines. A mix of regular HTML links and a couple of lines of tracking Java script, placed in the php header, indicating that a black hat SEO hacker broke in. The hack was simple and efficient, using CSS to keep the links on the page and visible for search engines but off the screen and invisible to human users. A multiple search engines comparative search using goScout.com on this subject does offer information but not much comfort. To test some of the web page link spam detection tools I could find I placed three spam links on the top middle and bottom of the test page but none was detected as potential spam (see the references section for links to some sites).

There was no noticeable difference between the hacked page and the regular page and the intrusion was not detected for months probably. The links were place on page but moved outside the screen or display area (“on page / off screen” placement or OPOS link). This is the HTML code of the hacked page

We decided to try to reproduce the hack on a test page, and sure enough we got a perfect on page / off screen (OPOS) “dark link”, on the page at minus 650 pixels (-650px). No horizontal scroll bars, no sign of the text even if is fairly long.

Both target sites have high ranks but score low on search engines. A bad sign for our victim site. It means ranks is transferred properly but search engines figured out we are linking to a spam site and dropped us along with them from the rankings. We managed to get back after almost two months of struggles and unhappy customers.

This attack might explain why our site Ghidul Medical basically disappeared from Google index for a couple of months at the beginning of 2010

Some conclusions:

If you experience a sudden drop in favour from search engine ranking, it might be because your site looks tainted to the the search engine and not some conspiracy by Google to take over the world. Always check you source from a browser when you feel something is wrong with your search optimization (SEO) efforts.

There is a clear need for web page link spam detection tools ideally an add-on that can expose such links similar to the add-ons that can expose “no follow” links
