comment How to get rid of the DNS Unlocker adware?
@Zacharee1 I see them in several sites, but not all. Also I changed to another router to connect to the Internet and nothing changed; the ads still come up.

@Zacharee1 I don't have Google Chrome installed, only Chromium, which I haven't opened lately and I haven't checked its plugins. But in Firefox I checked the plugins list and I didn't notice anything suspicous. Yes, by searching I also only found Windows related topics.

@Mateo I checked the network settings and I'm on 'No Proxy'. I also checked the /etc/hosts file and all seemed normal.

@Zacharee1 Nothing unfamilar there either. The last installations were on Monday. But I'm seeing these, since this morning.

@Zacharee1 Unfortunately, that didn't find anything modified.

comment Convert Text File Encoding
I wrote a useful script based on the working command which I have explained in another answer here. I hope it will help other Persian Linux-users as it help me a lot.

comment Invalid Partition Table
I guess your problem is the same as the question you cited. If you have access to another Linux machine try the dd command mentioned there.

Also to be free of the LANG variable setting, one can do: iconv -f WINDOWS-1256 -t UTF-8 in.txt > out.txt which I tested and worked. So it may be a good idea to edit your command like this.

Thanks! The second command (the one using iconv) worked. But the first one (using recode) didn't work correctly and the output was still gibberish. Edit your answer to only include the iconv command and I will mark it as the answer.

comment Ubuntu Freezes when Switching to Full-screen VirtualBox VM
@markkirby I doubt that question is related to my issue. That question is for VB-4.3.16 and on a Windows host. Also, the mini-toolbar is disabled in my situation and still the problem exists. Like I said, I'm a regular VB user (almost everyday in full-screen mode) and I had no issues with this VM until this morning.

comment Ubuntu Freezes when Switching to Full-screen VirtualBox VM
@markkirby After a clean boot, there is only one instance of compiz. Running VB itself doesn't invoke another instance. Even starting up the Win-7 VM in windowed-mode didn't invoke another compiz. But then I tried switching to full-screen mode and the system froze! I didn't had a chance to check the processes list.

@markkirby Yes, my CPU is a 1st generation Intel Core i7, and Intel virtualization tech is enabled in the BIOS.

comment Convert Text File Encoding
Gedit can't fix the problem. Although Gedit doesn't show an encoding error for my file, even when it does it can't fix it. I've also tried "save as" with UTF-8 encoding in Gedit, but it doesn't fix the problem.

@muru I tested your suggestion with vim but it didn't work.

Actually it doesn't answer the question! I read the details in the referenced post, and it's clear that Gaupol does nothing about the encoding problem and is just a subtitle editor! The post states that to fix encoding problems, one should use iconv!

comment How to check if my system is infected with the “Turla” trojan?
Of course, an answer that would clearly outline the steps to perform the DETECTION using any network monitoring tool (e.g. vnstat, netstat, ...), and the steps to perform for PREVENTION, using any firewall tool (e.g. ufw, iptables, ...) is greatly appreciated and DESIRED!

Thank you for the informative write-up. Although, this is bad news! :(

comment Where is Firefox's new “Forget” button in Ubuntu?
So, the point is that Firefox isn't updated to version 33.1 yet even after a few days has passed from it's release!
