Once these commands have finished you should have Ubuntu Desktop successfully installed. Make sure each command has enough time to finish processing so that there is no overlap in the installation as this could cause corruption in the system.
Now you will need to type: “vncserver”
Now enter your 8 digit password twice. Once you have done this you will need to kill the process. To kill the VNC server process type in the following:
vncserver -kill :1
Now edit the VNC server:
Add the following:
# Uncomment the following two lines
# exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
gnome-session –session=gnome-classic &
press ESC then type “:WQ” to save the file
and then start the vncserver
Type: “:- vncserver”
Now you’re done! Now you will connect the VPS with the tigervnc viewer. You can download the viewer here: https://github.com/TigerVNC/tigervnc/
Now you will need to enter the IP address of your VPS server. Now add the port: 5901
And that’s it, you have successfully installed VNC viewer within Ubuntu! Now you can easily manage your Ubuntu desktop from Windows. You now have a secure VNC server and viewer up and running on your Ubuntu VPS server. You can manage your files and install software. You’re done, go have some fun within your new VPS environment.

Uber Hacked; The Public Relations Disaster Continues
In 2016 rideshare Company Uber has concealed a hack, one that affected 57 million customers and drivers Uber has confirmed this.
Uber hid the breach by paying hackers $100,000 to delete the hacked data.
Former CEO Travis Kalanick was aware of the breach a year ago Bloomberg stated when they first published the story.
So what was stolen? 57 million names, email addresses and mobile phone numbers of Uber users and drivers, Uber said.
600,000 drivers were exposed by name and even their license details.
At least Uber had one good thing to do regarding the hack which offers free credit monitoring to their drivers, however, customers will not have that small security.
Uber Changes After Hack Exposed
After the hack was exposed Uber’s chief security officer Joe Sullivan left Uber. Uber’s new chief executive Dara Khosrowshahi met Mike Brown, who influences the Transport for London after London banned the ride-sharing service saying Uber has a record of not reporting criminal offenses and not providing and requiring background checks.
He said there was no indication that hackers pilfered especially sensitive information like Social Security numbers, location history or bank account and credit card numbers. Nevertheless, Mr. Khosrowshahi said, “None of this should have happened”.
After Travis Kalanick left the company, Sadiq Khan says Uber could be free to operate in capital for years “We are changing the way we do business,” he said. “None of this should have happened”. Chief

Security Officer Joe Sullivan and another person involved in hiding the breach lost their obs. Bloomberg claimed the paid the hackers $100,000 in total.
Will they really change the way operate as they say, or will they continue to make bad PR stunts like this? If they don’t turn around quick they may lose their business to Lyft.
Free Social Media Bot
A new, free social media bot with a built in exchange has emerged to take on others such as addmefast. The website allows you to download the bot, add your accounts and it automatically starts using your accounts for following, liking and more to gain you points. I’ve been testing the bot for a little less than a day but I am very happy with the results. Things you add for use with your points are quick to be recognized. You will see likes, follows and views pretty quiclkly, unlike addmefast which is dying sadly. You can join here: http://bit.ly/topsocialbot
Soctop is a great alternative to all of the social media exchanges I have tested. The fact that they have their own bot takes the cake. It is better than any other free social media bot. It is also better than any exchange I’ve seen for social media follows, views, likes etc on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. I haven’t tried it on the other platforms yet. They also cover Vkontakte (vk.com), OK.ru and ASK.fm which makes it quite well rounded. This is great for the future as the more people who use this free social media bot exchange, the more users can gain from it.
Yes, we said FREE Social Media Bot
If you haven’t already tried a social media exchange, they are great for when you are just starting an account. Some social media sites require a certain amount of followers for things. Like a username in your URL for instance for a Facebook page. Soctop can take care of that for you. It can be done within a short time so long as you run several accounts. The more accounts you run, the more credits. Hopefully, they add more. I’d love to see a free Snapchat bot or Linkedin bot.
Again you can join here: http://bit.ly/topsocialbot or search for Soctop and check them out.

During the Alpha Bay Shut Down
About a week ago a notorious marketplace that is said to be the replacement for Silkroad, Alpha Bay, went offline. When Alpha Bay shut down many people started speculating why the site went down but the attention was mitigated to a degree. Mods came onto their Reddit sub and said nothing was wrong and they were simply migrating their data to another server. A few days later and Bitcoin deposits and many other deposits were being shuffled between random accounts, or laundered, to different wallets. At this point the moderators on Reddit became quiet.
A few days after that and someone comes on Reddit claiming to have doxed the owner and said he extorted $45,000 in Bitcoin from him. He tried to extort more but was ignored after the first payment. Many on Reddit called the man who claimed to have extorted the owner a liar, however, his story adds up. Media outlets are all spouting news of a man, Alexandre Cazes, being detained in Thailand. Hours before being extradited for his crimes, he committed suicide in his cell. Alexandre Cazes appears to have been a major player, some claim he was the co-founder.
Alexandre Cazes Commits Suicide, but was he the owner? Did he cause the Alpha Bay shut down?
Alpha Bay Shut Down
After committing suicide authorities found many of his assets that point to his involvement with Alpha Bay. Alexandre Cazes seems to have been somewhat of an expert when it came to Bitcoin, money laundering and fraud. It appears he was unaware he was going to be caught but speculated it at the very least.
The Bangkok Post, citing Thai police sources, reported that Cazes had been living in Thailand for about eight years. Thai authorities also impounded “four Lamborghini cars and three houses worth about 400 million baht ($11.7 million) in total. – Arstechnica
This is an ongoing investigation and the full story will take some time to reveal, and no one knows if he was actually the owner of Alpha Bay, however, the evidence seems to be telling a pretty clear picture that he was at least up there with the owner, if not the owner himself.
Originally from Quebec, Mr Cazes was at the centre of an FBI investigation, accused of being an administrator and co-founder of AlphaBay.
The website sold illegal goods, class A drugs, pornography, stolen credit cards and weapons.
The website, which was shut down on 5 July, had up to $800,000 (£611,000) of transactions every day, according to researchers. The Independent
