The Register: PowerPC G5 to hit 2GHz (Update)
»Motorola is pushing ahead with the design of the PowerPC 7500 - aka G5 - company sources have claimed, according to a report over at MacOS Rumors.
We're sure they are, but we're not so sure the report's claims are entirely accurate except in a very broad sense. The report's information is a little too close to the details displayed on Motorola's last publicly released roadmap, dating back to September 1999.
According to the report, the G5 will boast speeds of 2GHz and up, "full-performance backward-compatibility", 512KB of on-die L2 cache a new memory architecture and a modular design allowing the company to offer multi-core chips. It will be fabbed at 0.1 micron using silicon-on-insulator construction.«

Hyperion Entertainment welcomes Amiga`s OS4 Strategy
In the aftermath of the recent announcement by Amiga Inc. that the Classic Amiga OS would be ported to PPC, many users have asked us to comment on the technical merit of Amiga's OS 4 strategy and what it would mean for games and 3D graphics.

Prior to Amiga's announcement, senior software engineers of Hyperion Entertainment identified the key bottlenecks in the Amiga OS which hampered the performance of our games: the slow 68K based filesystem, the 68K based RTG system, the lack of virtual memory and the dual CPU architecture of the current PPC boards which generates performance-crippling context switches.

Amiga OS 4 will address all these issues and do much more.

We can confidently predict that with Amiga OS 4, users can look forward to performance levels never before seen on the Amiga.

Hyperion Entertainment has therefore signed on to develop the 3D API for Amiga OS 4 and provide a fully featured OpenGL(tm) implementation through Mesa 3.4.

All our current and future game-titles will take full advantage of everything that OS 4 has to offer.

Unlike some who unashamedly claim that « games don't play an important role anymore in the current Amiga market », we are committed to once more make the name « Amiga » synonymous with top-quality entertainment software.

Senior staff-members of Hyperion Entertainment will continue to work with Amiga Inc. to ensure that Amiga OS 4 will provide everything game-developers need to accomplish the goal of putting Amiga back at the forefront of gaming and 3D graphics.

Trojan Warning (Update II)
Some sort of trojan (apparently the newly uploaded stackattack.lha on Aminet) has caused SMTP bombing of haage-partner. The file is this: StackAttack.lha util/boot 68K 0 V1.2b Kills GURUs (stack problem). It's on the German Aminet mirror.
Could there be hidden loopholes in MorphOS? Read the link and consider for yourself.

Frank Niewiedzial informed us that other files could be affected too.
"Do not download and install safe.lha and fblit.lha. They are fakes and send hatemails to H&P."

Silivio K. told us that the current version of 'BlaceWCP' could be concerned too.
"The current version of BlaceWP, available from the aminet, opens the port 113 (auth) of your computer and connects to the H&P web- and ftpserver! The program itself is not a product of H&P. Thats why it could be possible that it is a trojan too.
The following logs were recorded:
tcp 0 0 pD9042BA5.dip.t-.auth haage-partner.co.61797 TIME_WAIT
16:00:46.081940 pD90427BC.dip.t-dialin.net.2865 > haage-partner.com.smtp
16:02:08.530618 pD90427BC.dip.t-dialin.net > 217.5.107.165: icmp: echo request
"

Annotation of editor's:
Haage & Partner confirmed that at the moment 15 e-mails arrive at H&P every minute. Juergen Haage: "Do not panic. No normal mail will get lost."

The MorphOS-Team has nothing to do with the virus and dissociate from this! "Lowest level, this is not our way of competition".

Even Georg Steger, the original author of StackAttack dissociates him self in his commentary at ANN.

Virus Help Denmark and the admin of the aminet Matthias Scheler are informed and they will check the files and maybe delete them.

At the title link there is a tool available that removes the task from the ram. After reboot it will be there again and you have to restart the tool.

Annotation: Messsage of the day from Aminet
  • TROJAN HORSES FOUND ON AMINET. The following four archives on Aminet were unfortunately infected: util/boot/StackAttack.lha, util/boot/BlazeWCP.lha, util/virus/Safe.lha and util/boot/FBlit.lha. They contain faked releases of the original software linked with a Trojan horse which sends out abusive e-mails. On infected systems a process called "zakahackandpatch" will show up. If your system is infected deleted the software listed abover or replace it with older versions and reboot. As a protest against this abuse of Aminet we will shut down our services on "us.aminet.net" and "de.aminet.net" until Friday.
  • DE3.AMINET.NET NOW COMPLETE. The mirror in Erlangen, Germany now stores all Aminet files.

Annotation 10.04.2001:
Following the official message by Virus Help Denmark. They are offering the old alten Archives at there homepage.

Four new 'TCP' trojans was found today on Aminet. If you installed one of these archives, please delete the files. We hope to have a cure for these trojan within the next 24 hours.
The TCP trojan will send an email to 'Haage & Partner', with a very stupid text.

Here is what we know so far:

Virus Type.... : TCP Trojan
Trojan name....: zakahackandpatch

Archive name.. : Safe.lha Archive size.. : About 20 kb
Archive name.. : Fblit.lha Archive size.. : 142.086 bytes
Archive name.. : BlazeWCP.lha Archive size.. : 32.862 bytes
Archive name.. : stackattack.lha Archive size.. : About 32 kb

Thanx to Frank Niewiedzial, Kev Harrison, Luca Longone and many more for your information about these archives..... (unk) (Translation: (unk)
