PHP Warning: date_default_timezone_get(): It is not safe to rely on the system’s timezone settings


PHP Warning: date_default_timezone_get(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'America/New_York' for 'EDT/-4.0/DST' instead in /var/www/vhosts/adserver/httpdocs/lib/OX/Admin/Timezones.php on line 158


Edit php.ini and add appropriate timezone.

Firefox 5 Hidden Extension Redirecting Google Searches to Spam Website

Using GooredFix, I was able to remove a malicious Firefox extension. This extension is not all over the internet currently, but apparently present to the few websites I visit each day. It installs without permission and causes every other clicked Google search result to redirect to a fake search engine site.

Deleting HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Mozilla\Firefox\Extensions\\{EFB5AF1A-EB6E-4A28-AEF7-FDD4FBB4B353} -> Success!
Deleting C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\{EFB5AF1A-EB6E-4A28-AEF7-FDD4FBB4B353} -> Success!
