Trojan Horse Discovered On Samsung Site

 

People generally expect to enjoy a degree of safety when they visit the website of a major corporation. There's an implicit guarantee that these brand names won't have any malware on their pages. That trust may have been broken, though, with the recent revelation that the Samsung site is home to a Trojan horse.

 

Websense put out an alert on the issue on Wednesday, saying that it had "received reports that the Samsung Telecom website is hosting malicious code. The site, which is hosted in the United States, has been hosting a number of directories and files which, when downloaded and run, install malicious code on end-users' machines."

 

"The server appears to have been compromised and has been hosting a variety of files for some time (the owners have been contacted)," the report continued. "The most current code, which is still available for download, is a Trojan Horse that attempts to disable anti-virus programs, modify registry keys, download additional files, and log keystrokes when connecting to banking websites."

 

Samsung fans don't necessarily need to be too concerned - "currently there is no exploit code on the website that attempts to trigger a download of the file without user interaction," Websense reported. "The site is hosting and most likely distributing files to users who are lured through Instant Messaging or email links."

 

Joel Camissar, the Australian country manager for Websense, spoke to ZDNet Australia about the Trojan. The quotes were reprinted in a CNET article. "Why not hack into a site that people are visiting that is a trusted brand? Trust is so important these days," Camissar said.

 

"People are being preached to by banks not to trust links (in unsolicited e-mails) - that is something people are starting to follow," he stated. "So if one does go to a site that is trusted, it is certainly a very easy way for hackers to compromise users."

Chase Dumps 2.6M Customers In Landfill

 

Although it is not definite, Chase believes lost backup tapes of current and former Circuit City credit cardholder information have ended up in a landfill somewhere.

 

A quintet of backup tapes were disposed of by personnel at Chase Card Services, which issued credit cards on behalf of electronics retailer Circuit City. The unintentional trashing of those data tapes placed the personally identifiable information of around 2.6 million cardholders at risk.

 

Chase posted a statement about the missing tapes, and emphasized their belief that there has been no misuse of personal information as a result of their error:

 

Working closely with federal and local law enforcement, Chase conducted a thorough investigation and believes that the tapes, contained within a locked box, were compacted, destroyed and are buried in a landfill where the trash was taken.

 

"We deeply regret that this has occurred and apologize to those impacted," said Rich Srednicki, chief executive officer of Chase Card Services, which issues co-branded and private-label credit cards for Circuit City. "We have found no evidence that the tapes or their contents have been accessed or misused. The privacy of our customers' personal information is of utmost importance to us, and we take the responsibility to safeguard this information very seriously."

 

"We take responsibility for this and are making every effort to let affected cardmembers know what we are doing and what we suggest they do to protect themselves," added Srednicki.

 

Chase began sending out notification letters to affected customers this week. They are offering one year of credit card monitoring at no charge to customers whose Social Security number was on the missing tapes.

The Best Computer Upgrade Ever

http://www.slate.com/id/2149179/?nav=tap3

 

 

 

Time for a MONSTER UPGRADE baby!!

 

 

The Best Computer Upgrade Ever

Forget about a faster processor. Splurge on a bigger screen.

 

Whether you're a PC or Mac user, the humongous 24-inch iMac that Apple unwrapped on Wednesday drives home a point: Speed is good, but spread is better. For the past year, I've been working at two offices. Office A has a fairly new 17-inch Mac I bought so I could crank out more freelance work without having to turn off iTunes. But lately, I find myself making the longer trek to Office B to use an older, slower machine. Why? Because a generous Office B colleague updated the slowpoke with a 23-inch monitor.

 

Speed freaks are stoked that Intel has finally replaced its aging Pentium processors with a speedier design called Core 2. Apple went for broke and stuffed the new iMac with a dual-core Intel processor and a 24-inch monitor. But it'll cost me $2,000-plus to buy my dream machine. PC users get a choice: Dell will sell you a Core 2-powered PC for $1,200 or a 24-inch flat-panel monitor for around $700. If you're feeling stymied by your computer, buy the monitor now and wait until Windows Vista comes out to upgrade the rest of your PC. You'll get more Core 2 for your money by then, and you'll already have a panoramic screen to let Vista live up to its name.

 

Don't be fooled by all those Intel commercials: A faster CPU isn't always the best upgrade. Dell hawks its Core 2 Duo PCs as the "ultimate multimedia and gaming experience." What bigger multimedia buzz is there than a giant screen? I'm not a gamer, but I spend a lot of time with Word, Excel, Firefox, and iTunes. I watch a lot of YouTube by day and often slide a DVD into my desktop machine at night. I'm fascinated by Google Maps and Google Earth. For these applications, a faster processor doesn't really help. But you know what's better than a million pixels of Google Earth? Two million pixels of Google Earth.

 

Prima donna software developers who get anything they want have traditionally awarded themselves second, third, and even fourth monitors. You could cite the industry studies that find increased productivity among multiple monitor users, or you could just accept the formula of computer graphics veteran Jon Peddie: "Can't have too many pixels." Besides, flat-panel displays have gotten so big and so cheap that you no longer need to cable together four screens. Just buy one big one. Thirty-inch mega-monitors first appeared two years ago for $3,300. Today, you can get one for $1,800 that puts more than 4 million pixels on one panel, equivalent to three or four 17-inch monitors or two HDTV screens. A 20-inch model with close to 2 million pixels is only $350.

 

Apple's Web site flogs a third-party study by Pfeiffer Consulting that concludes 30-inch monitors aren't a luxury. "When working on a computer, we lose much more time than we realize through user-interface manipulations," Pfeiffer's researchers wrote—even if we're handling only e-mail and Web pages and not Photoshop. I dismissed the report as marketing collateral, but after a few weeks at my own widescreen I've reached the same conclusion—it's surprising how much more work I crank out lately. Co-workers praise my newfound motivation. The truth is, I can finally see what I'm doing.

 

While a faster processor lets you do what you've been doing more quickly, extra display space lets you do things that were previously unthinkable. I can put two versions of an article side by side, editing one while eyeballing the other. I used to squeeze two shrunken windows onto a smaller screen or flip between edit and review windows. That doesn't compare to editing and reading both at actual size at the same time.

 

I bought a faster computer for Office A so I could juggle multiple windows and apps more quickly. On Office B's 1600 x 1200 pixel screen, I don't need to juggle at all. I've even got extra turf to keep background tasks onscreen. If I get an instant message while on deadline, I can scan it in my peripheral vision without moving my hands on the keyboard. If I need to reply, I don't have to shove my work aside. I can keep an eye on inbound e-mail while writing and click to zap an annoying song from iTunes without fumbling for the application. I've even squeezed an analog clock and a weather widget into a spare corner so I needn't remember to check them.

 

With everything in plain sight and within reach, my computer's desktop finally looks like a real desktop. That wouldn't be possible if it weren't almost the same size as one. Rewriting this article at home on my 17-inch screen, I feel cramped and frustrated. What PC makers call a desktop has been closer in size to the back of a book. Isn't it about time you threw away the book and sprawled out a little bit?

Man gets 7 years for software piracy

 

The owner of one of the nation's largest software piracy Web sites has been sentenced to more than seven years in prison--the longest sentence ever handed down for software piracy.

 

Nathan Peterson, 27, of Los Angeles, sold copyrighted software at a huge discount on his site, iBackups.net, prosecutors said. The FBI began investigating the site in 2003 and shut it down in February 2005.

 

U.S. District Court Judge T.S. Ellis III on Friday ordered Peterson to pay restitution of more than $5.4 million. Peterson pleaded guilty in December in Alexandria, Va., to two counts of copyright infringement for illegally copying and selling more than $20 million in software.

 

Justice Department and industry officials called the case one of the largest involving Internet software piracy ever prosecuted.

 

Last month, Ellis sentenced Danny Ferrer, a Florida man who pleaded guilty to copyright charges in connection with multimillion-dollar sales of pirated software, to six years in prison.

 

Software piracy resulted in a loss of $34 billion worldwide in 2005, a $1.6 billion increase over 2004, according to a study commissioned by the Business Software Alliance.

Man flying to Yemen arrested after knife found

 

ROMULUS, Michigan (AP) -- A man with a one-way ticket to Yemen attempted to board a plane with a knife hidden in a book, authorities said.

 

Mohammed Ghanem, 21, of Hamtramck, was jailed Saturday on $500,000 after being arraigned on a charge of possessing a weapon in the sterile area of an airport.

 

Ghanem was arrested Thursday at Detroit Metropolitan Airport after Transportation Security Administration officers detected the knife "artfully concealed" in the book, airport spokesman Michael Conway said.

 

Someone had carved out the inside of the book and placed the knife inside it, said Ghanem's attorney, Nabih Ayad.

 

"He said he didn't know where the knife came from," Ayad told the Detroit Free Press.

 

If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison.

 

Ghanem was born in Yemen, a republic bordering Saudi Arabia whose 18 million residents are primarily Muslim. He is now a legal permanent resident of the United States and was returning to Yemen to get married, Ayad said.

 

Ghanem works as a busboy and lives in Hamtramck with family members, but he had a one-way ticket to Yemen, authorities said.

Freed reporter 'to rack up an enormous beer tab'

http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/09/10/tribune.j...t.ap/index.html

 

 

 

Does God want you to be rich?

 

In three of the Gospels, Jesus warns that each of his disciples may have to "deny himself" and even "take up his Cross."

 

In support of this prediction, he contrasts the fleeting pleasures of today with the promise of eternity: "For what profit is it to a man," he asks, "if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?"

 

Generations of churchgoers have understood that being Christian means being ready to sacrifice. But for a growing number of Christians, the question is better restated, "Why not gain the whole world plus my soul?"

 

For several decades, a philosophy has been percolating in the 10 million-strong Pentecostal wing of Christianity that seems to turn the Gospels' passage on its head. Certainly, it allows, Christians should keep one eye on heaven. But the new good news is that God doesn't want us to wait.

 

Known (or vilified) under a variety of names -- Word of Faith, Health and Wealth, Name It and Claim It, Prosperity Theology -- its emphasis is on God's promised generosity in this life. In a nutshell, it suggests that a God who loves you does not want you to be broke.

 

Its signature verse could be John 10:10: "I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." In a Time poll, 17 percent of Christians surveyed said they considered themselves part of such a movement, while a full 61 percent believed that God wants people to be prosperous.

 

"Prosperity" first blazed to public attention as the driveshaft in the moneymaking machine that was 1980s televangelism and faded from mainstream view with the Jim Bakker and Jimmy Swaggart scandals.

 

But now, after some key modifications (which have inspired some to redub it Prosperity Lite), it has not only recovered but is booming.

 

Of the four biggest megachurches in the country, three -- Joel Osteen's Lakewood in Houston; T.D. Jakes' Potter's House in south Dallas; and Creflo Dollar's World Changers in Atlanta -- are Prosperity or Prosperity Lite pulpits (although Jakes' ministry has many more facets).

 

While they don't exclusively teach that God's riches want to be in believers' wallets, it is a key part of their doctrine.

 

And propelled by Osteen's 4 million-selling book, Your Best Life Now, the belief has swept beyond its Pentecostal base into more buttoned-down evangelical churches, and even into congregations in the more liberal Mainline. It is taught in hundreds of non-Pentecostal Bible studies. One Pennsylvania Lutheran pastor even made it the basis for a sermon series for Lent, when Christians usually meditate on why Jesus was having His Worst Life Then.

 

The movement's renaissance has infuriated a number of prominent pastors, theologians and commentators. Fellow megapastor Rick Warren, whose book The Purpose Driven Life has outsold Osteen's by a ratio of 7 to 1, finds the very basis of Prosperity laughable. "This idea that God wants everybody to be wealthy?" he snorts. "There is a word for that: baloney. It's creating a false idol. You don't measure your self-worth by your net worth. I can show you millions of faithful followers of Christ who live in poverty. Why isn't everyone in the church a millionaire?"

 

The brickbats -- both theological and practical (who really gets rich from this?) --come especially thick from Evangelicals like Warren. Evangelicalism is more prominent and influential than ever before. Yet the movement, which has never had a robust theology of money, finds an aggressive philosophy advancing within its ranks that many of its leaders regard as simplistic, possibly heretical and certainly embarrassing.

 

Prosperity's defenders claim to be able to match their critics chapter and verse. They caution against broad-brushing a wide spectrum that ranges from pastors who crassly solicit sky's-the-limit financial offerings from their congregations to those whose services tend more toward God-fueled self-help.

 

Advocates note Prosperity's racial diversity -- a welcome exception to the American norm -- and point out that some Prosperity churches engage in significant charity. And they see in it a happy corrective for Christians who are more used to being chastened for their sins than celebrated as God's children.

 

"Who would want to get in on something where you're miserable, poor, broke and ugly and you just have to muddle through until you get to heaven?" asks Joyce Meyer, a popular television preacher and author often lumped in the Prosperity Lite camp. "I believe God wants to give us nice things."

 

If nothing else, Meyer and other new-breed preachers broach a neglected topic that should really be a staple of Sunday messages: Does God want you to be rich?

Court Denies Target Corp. Request to Dismiss Suit

Plaintiffs, Including UC Student, Claim Retailer’s Web Site is Inaccessible to the Blind Customers

 

In a landmark federal court decision issued earlier this week, a motion to dismiss a class-action lawsuit against Target Corp. was denied, marking what prosecutors called a victory for the visually-impaired community.

 

"This judgment was a victory of an important battle, but not of the overarching war," said UC Berkeley senior Bruce Sexton, one of the plaintiffs in the class-action lawsuit.

 

The judge issued his decision after Target motioned to dismiss a class-action lawsuit filed Feb. 7 that claimed that the corporation's Web site was inaccessible to blind customers.

 

The suit claimed that the Web site violates the Americans with Disabilities Act, the California Unruh Civil Rights Act and the California Disabled Persons Act.

 

Target wanted the case dismissed, arguing that only its physical retail locations, not its Web site, are subject to state and federal accessibility laws.

 

But the judge struck down the motion, saying the Americans with Disabilities Act, which requires all commercial locations to be accessible to citizens with disabilities, extends to Web sites as well as physical retail locations.

 

Many Web pages are designed to be compatible with screen-reading software, which takes visual information from computer screens and reads it out loud, said John Pare, who is the director of public relations for the National Federation of the Blind.

 

Such sites also allow users to use keyboard shortcuts instead of relying on a mouse, he said.

 

"Target didn't have these shortcuts installed in their own Web site," Pare said.

 

Representatives from Target could not be reached for comment.

 

The ruling could hopefully spur more companies to adapt their Web sites to comply with federal and state accesibility laws, said Daniel Goldstein, a partner in the civil rights law firm Brown, Goldstein & Levy, one of the prosecuting firms in the suit.

 

While a final ruling has yet to be issued, disability-rights advocates said this is an important setback for Target and they are cautiously optimistic.

 

"This is the first step," Pare said, "but we've still got a long way to go."

 

"This judgment was a victory of an important battle, but not of the overarching war," said UC Berkeley senior Bruce Sexton, one of the plaintiffs in the class-action lawsuit.

 

In an unprecedented decision for disability rights advocates, a federal district court judge ruled Tuesday that retail company Web sites must be accessible to the blind.

 

The lawsuit, filed Feb. 7 against Target Corp., claims

 

the Web site's inaccessibility violates the

 

This technology is crucial for blind individuals, said Daniel Goldstein of

 

civil rights law firm Brown, Goldstein & Levy, since they cannot drive and need to do much of their shopping and other business online.

 

And while most sites are software compatible, said Goldstein, there's a difference between acessibility and usability. While most sites are at least somewhat accessible, he said, "the number of both accessible and usable Web sites are ... but still very few."

 

Goldstein said the changing face of the high-tech industry has furthered the quality of life for the blind, it has also left other aspects behind. "One might have expected new tech to be liberating, and it has been ... but now the thermostat is now digital, the washer is now digital," he said.

 

It is when companies have to modify such existing infrastructure to make them accessible that compliance with state and federal laws becomes expensive and possibly unappealing.

Google is Playing Around with Accessible Search

 

While I was away/busy, it has come to my attention that Google Labs have released an interesting product named Accessible Search with a clever slogan of Accessible Web Search for the Visually Challenged.

 

A few questions are discussed in the Accessible search FAQ:

 

What is Google Accessible Search?

Accessible Search is an early Google Labs product designed to identify and prioritize search results that are more easily usable by blind and visually impaired users. Regular Google search helps you find a set of documents that is most relevant to your tasks. Accessible Search goes one step further by helping you find the most accessible pages in that result set.

 

How does Accessible Search work?

In its current version, Google Accessible Search looks at a number of signals by examining the HTML markup found on a web page. It tends to favor pages that degrade gracefully --- pages with few visual distractions and pages that are likely to render well with images turned off. Google Accessible Search is built on Google Co-op's technology, which improves search results based on specialized interests.

 

This brings me back to a few points I've made earlier on various forums and such dealing with making your website accessible to users and the weight that Google places on such efforts. I think that this is a nice step forward for Google, especially since it moved away from ads.

 

One thing that I've noted when comparing regular search results to Accessibility Search is that results are different Perhaps this has something to do with how accessible is the content of a site etc.

Edelman Debuts Blog Portal

 

Thanks to the power of blogs, podcasts, RSS, wikis and other types of social media, every organization large or small can become their own media company. With this in mind, Edelman today launched a special landing page that aggregates content from our various employees around the world.

 

Currently the Edelman Landing Blog includes links to 16 different bloggers as well as two podcasts. The site also features a news trough with links to the different stories we're watching. All blog content is tagged and you can view these alphabetically or by frequency. Last but not least we have published a directory of our RSS feeds. We're open to hearing your feedback so please feel free to leave them as comments to this post.

XAML Heralds "New Era" For Applications

 

Buzz is building about Microsoft's Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML).

 

One writer stated that it "opens [a] paradigm shift for application development," and "promises to usher in a new era in the development of applications."

 

George Lawton authored those remarks after reading the Burton Group report titled "XAML: Declarative Programming Advances in .NET 3.0."

 

He also quoted several other individuals in his article; all of them seemed to agree that XAML is an important technology.

 

XAML, in case you didn't know, "provides an infrastructure to allow designers, developers and business process managers to coordinate their areas of expertise through a fluid processes."

We Have To Continue Exposing Phishing Attempts

 

A lot has been written about all known kinds of scams including "Phishing". But criminals keep on throwing their nets and having quite a good take.

 

Therefore we have to continue exposing the phishing attempts. And since "it is better to see once than hear 10 times" I want to share with you 2 emails that I have recently received. These are really similar letters (in fact it is almost the same one with tiny differences). The letter(s) are as follows:

 

Subjects:

 

1. We were unable to authorize charges to the Credit Card Number you provided.

 

2. Your Amazon Account will be Closed!

 

"Dear AOL Client, (Dear Client) As part of our security measures, we regularly screen activity in our network.

 

We recently noticed the following issue on your account: A recent review of your transaction history determined that we require an update of your account in order to provide you with secure services.

 

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

 

You must click the link below and fill in the form on the following page to complete the verification process.

 

URL (that looks like a link to AOL or Amazon:

 

http://webmail.aol.com/mail/

 

http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html)

 

We thank you for your prompt attention to this matter. Please understand that this is a security measure intended to help protect you and your account.

 

Sincerely,

 

AOL (Amazon) Billing Department"

 

As I was told, I clicked the link and saw a "secure" form asking for my name, address, credit card details and so on. It is clear that filling out this form would cause me a substantial financial loss. But how do I know that these letters are phishing? Simple: I am not and have never been a client of AOL.

Man May Have Sent 2 Billion Spam E-Mails

 

SYDNEY, Australia (AP) - An Australian man under investigation for illegal spamming sent more than 2 billion e-mails promoting Viagra in a year, an official said Wednesday.

 

Experts say that's a drop in the ocean compared to the number of spam e-mails sent globally each year, and the system he used probably wasn't very sophisticated.

 

The Australian Communications and Media Authority began investigating the man, whose identity was not immediately released, after receiving a tip-off from authorities in the Netherlands in May last year.

 

Danyel Molenaar, a project manager for the Dutch Independent Regulator of Post and Telecommunications, said the man had rented 35 servers for around 14,000 Australian dollars (US$10,493; euro8,256) each per month from a small Internet service provider in the Netherlands to carry out the alleged spam campaign.

 

"These 35 servers were used just for sending spam day-in, day-out for at least a year, probably longer," Molenaar said Wednesday. "This operation probably sent out billions and billions of e-mails."

 

Australia has some of the toughest laws in the world against spamming, the notoriously hard-to-stop practice of flooding as many inboxes as possible with unwanted sales messages in the hope some of the receivers will reply.

 

Under Australia's Spam Act of 2003, it is illegal for Australian residents to be involved in the sending of unsolicited commercial e-mails, even if they are generated from outside the country.

 

The Australian authority's chairwoman, Lyn Maddock, said the man had allegedly sent more than 2 billion e-mails, mostly promoting the anti-impotence drug Viagra, to Internet users around the world.

El Nino forms in Pacific Ocean

 

NEW YORK (Reuters) -- El Nino, an extreme warming of equatorial waters in the Pacific Ocean that wreaks havoc with world weather conditions, has formed and will last into 2007, the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said Wednesday.

 

El Nino has already helped make the Atlantic hurricane season milder than expected, said a NOAA forecaster.

 

"The weak El Nino is helping to explain why the hurricane season is less than we expected. El Ninos tend to suppress hurricane activity in the Atlantic," said Gerry Bell, a hurricane forecaster for NOAA.

 

The NOAA's Climate Prediction Center said the El Nino probably will spur warmer-than-average temperatures this winter over western and central Canada and the western and northern United States.

 

It said El Nino also will cause wetter-than-average conditions in the U.S. Gulf Coast and Florida, and spark dry conditions in the Ohio valley, the Pacific Northwest and most U.S. islands in the tropical Pacific.

 

In Asia and South America, the last severe El Nino killed hundreds of people and caused billions of dollars in damage as crops shriveled across the Asia-Pacific basin. This El Nino has caused drier-than-average conditions across Indonesia, Malaysia and most of the Philippines.

 

Indonesia is the most populous Moslem country with over 200 million people, while the Philippines have nearly 90 million. Both are major importers of U.S. grains.

 

The CPC Web site said surface temperatures were substantially warmer than normal by early September in the Pacific. Scientists detect formation of El Ninos by monitoring sea surface temperatures with a system of buoys.

 

"Currently, weak El Nino conditions exist, but there is a potential for this event to strengthen into a moderate event by winter," Vernon Kousky, the chief El Nino expert at NOAA's Climate Prediction Center, said in a statement.

 

"The latest ... predictions indicate El Nino conditions for the remainder of 2006 and into the northern hemisphere spring [of] 2007," the CPC Web site explained.

 

El Nino, which means "little boy" in Spanish, hits once every three years or so. Anchovy fishermen in South America noticed the phenomenon in the 19th century and named it for the Christ child since it appeared around Christmas, and it normally peaks late in the year.

El Nino hinders hurricanes

 

One immediate impact of the El Nino is during the current Atlantic hurricane season, which follows on the heels of the record 28 storms and 15 hurricanes which struck in 2005.

 

Last year's howlers included monsters like Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma. But this El Nino apparently has helped hinder storm formation in 2006. So far, there has only been seven tropical storms and two hurricanes halfway through the hurricane season, which begins June 1 and ends November 30.

 

Scientists said El Ninos disrupt storm formation because it allows wind shear to rip apart thunderstorms in the center of the hurricanes, reducing power and intensity as a result.

U.S. Northeast in for milder winter

 

An El Nino also usually leads to milder winter weather in the U.S. Northeast, the top heating oil market in the world.

 

Bell said scientists will have a better idea in the fall how long this El Nino will last. "There's no way to say at this time how strong it is going to be. It's too early," he said.

 

The last severe El Nino struck in 1997-1998. The weather phenomenon caused searing drought in Indonesia, Australia and the Philippines while causing rampant flooding in Ecuador and Chile, the world's top producer of copper.

Tips on doling out gratuities abroad

 

The good news on gratuities is that the United States is an anomaly: No other country hands out tips as often or as large as Americans do.

 

The bad news for thrifty business travelers? It's quickly catching on.

 

One of the most vexing aspects of traveling abroad is deciphering the tipping customs in a country: How much do you tip the waiter, the cab driver, the hotel porters and valets?

 

"We tend to tip better when we are in other countries as well because we're used to forking out the 20 percent," said Lynn Staneff, marketing director for Magellan's, a travel supplies company.

 

You can always research on the Internet before you leave, or e-mail your hotel and ask about the local customs, Staneff said. Also, she added, "the hotel concierge is a great resource" once you arrive.

 

But what if there's no time? You're about to lose a major account and the boss wants you in London by morning to woo the conglomerate back.

 

No problem, said Doug Stallings, an editor with Fodor's Travel Publications. There are guidelines to make sure you don't get fleeced before finding a concierge.

 

"I don't think anybody's going to get jacked if you want to add 10 percent," he said, explaining how to stay in the good graces of waiters and taxi drivers.

 

A dollar or two, or the local equivalent, for valets and a buck a bag for porters are also safe bets, he said, but don't freak out.

 

"What I notice more is people get so worked up about tipping, and it shouldn't be so stressful," he said.

 

Stallings is no exception. Once, on a trip to Bangkok, he found himself with only large Thai baht bills -- nothing he could hand to a cab driver -- so he got a car service instead.

 

"Even though it cost two or three times as much as a taxi, I did that because I didn't want to worry about having to tip," he said.

 

In many cases, especially in Europe and South and Central America, you won't have to worry, said Staneff.

 

Belgium, Ecuador, England, Finland, Hungary, India, Israel, Kenya, Norway, Portugal, Scotland, South Africa, Sweden and Wales are among countries whose hotels and restaurants -- especially the posh ones -- generally add a service charge, usually around 10 percent, she said.

 

"It's your cue to know you've already tipped X amount," she said. "If the service was good, feel free to tip more."

 

But service charges don't necessarily mean you can skip the tip, she said. Hotels and restaurants in Austria, Chile, Egypt, Greece, Guatemala, Italy, Macao and Spain often levy service charges, but you should still add another 5 to 10 percent.

 

The general rule in Europe, said Staneff, is "anytime you'd tip here, you'd tip there. Just be careful about service charges."

 

Elsewhere, there are other tipping customs you should observe, Stallings said.

 

Especially in Asia and the South Pacific, there are regions where tipping is "not only not customary, but it would be considered quite rude," he said, offering parts of Tahiti, Fiji and Singapore as examples.

 

Places like China and Vietnam are just starting to embrace the "capitalistic impulse" of gratuities, Stallings said, and in Australia, Iceland, Japan and New Zealand, only high-end establishments and tourist traps expect it.

 

In some central and eastern European countries, like Austria, Czech Republic, Germany and Hungary, leaving your tip on the table at a restaurant is considered uncouth. Go ahead and hand it to the server, Stallings said.

 

And whenever possible, tip in the local currency unless you're in a country with close American ties like Mexico or the Philippines.

 

"If you're in Jakarta (Indonesia), and you give someone a dollar, the money is worthless to them," he said. "They still have to change it to rupiah," and they'll likely get hit with an exchange fee.

 

In parts of Asia and the Middle East, gift-giving is a more entrenched part of the culture than tipping, though Stallings said, "I can't for the life of me think of a circumstance where you'd be so personally beholden to someone."

 

Staneff is more comfortable with the idea, especially in countries where tipping "is not appreciated in the manner in which the gesture is given."

 

When traveling to Asia and the Middle East, "it might not be a bad idea to take a few little wrapped gifts from the U.S." for concierges and chambermaids.

 

Stallings, however, thinks you'll always be safe leaving a dollar or two everyday on the pillow or nightstand for the maids.

 

"Hotel maids are usually the least paid and least compensated in the hotel," he said, adding that a daily gratuity is a "good way to get more towels or more toiletries."

 

While there are no concrete rules for tipping abroad, Stallings and Staneff said you can learn about a country's gratuities culture by asking a concierge or following the locals' lead.

 

Remember, though, a tip is a way of saying, "Thanks for the service," whether it's a speedy cab or a welcoming waiter.

 

Don't feel obliged to tip if the service was bad, and don't be afraid to tip extra if it was particularly good, Staneff said.

 

"We always, always, always say that in the end, it's up to you," she said.

Bionic arm provides hope for amputees

 

DAYTON, Tennessee (AP) -- Jesse Sullivan has two prosthetic arms, but he can climb a ladder at his house and roll on a fresh coat of paint. He's also good with a weed-whacker, bending his elbow and rotating his forearm to guide the machine.

 

He's even mastered a more sensitive maneuver -- hugging his grandchildren.

 

The motions are coordinated and smooth because his left arm is a bionic device controlled by his brain. He thinks, "Close hand," and electrical signals sent through surgically re-routed nerves make it happen.

 

Doctors describe Sullivan as the first amputee with a thought-controlled artificial arm.

 

Researchers encouraged Sullivan, who became an amputee in an industrial accident, not to go easy on his experimental limb.

 

"When I left, they said don't bring it back looking new," the 59-year-old Sullivan said with a grin, his brow showing sweat beneath a fraying Dollywood amusement park cap. At times he had been so rough with the bionic arm that it broke, including once when he pulled the end off starting a lawnmower.

 

That prompted researchers to make improvements, part of a U.S. government initiative to refine artificial limbs that connect body and mind. The National Institutes of Health has supported the research, joined more recently by the military's research-and-development wing, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. Some 411 U.S. troops in Iraq and 37 in Afghanistan have had wounds that cost them at least one limb, the Army Medical Command says.

Skype to Disrupt Mobile Phone Biz

 

NetGear announced the first Skype phone ($249) that runs over WiFi, and this has all the earmarks of a disruptive technology that telecom companies will have to counteract.

 

WiFi phones free users from monthly service charges, and Skype users no longer must have a PC nearby. Calls to other Skype users will be free, and calls to standard phones cost a fraction of today's prices.

 

Of course the big challenge for Skype is reliability -- if users can't connect, they won't be customers for long. I have been using Skype every day for the past two months and was happy until the last week when my connection started sucking.

 

Marketers need to think about how WiFi phones will present new challenges and opportunities. Advertisers may have more inventory on Skype users' desktops as well as perhaps geotargeting customers on their phones as they roam about. But equally important is considering what might be lost. If the telecom industry declines substantially, what does that mean?

 

Often times disruptive technologies will have unanticipated consequences as they rollover into seemingly unrelated technologies. For example, DVRs are forcing TV advertisers to adjust, but they have also helped to create YouTube by making it easy to save content and then post it online.

 

Analyzing and planning for the ramifications of disruptive will keep others from eating your lunch.

Nikon magazine hit with security breach

 

Nikon World magazine subscribers were hit with a security breach, the camera giant said this week.

 

The breach, which lasted nine hours Tuesday, revealed personal and financial information of 3,235 subscribers.

 

The security breach affected the Nikon World's online registration site, according to an advisory posted in the upper-right corner of the main page of publication's Web site.

 

The incident marks the latest in a long string of security issues linked to potential or actual identity theft.

 

During a nine-hour period Tuesday, nine new Nikon World subscribers were able to view personal information of 3,235 individuals who had registered for the magazine, going back to Jan. 1. The information that was accessible included subscribers' addresses, contact details and credit card information.

 

The security breach arose due to a system failure by an outside vendor that Nikon World uses, according to the company. The problem has since been resolved.

 

Nikon notified all affected subscribers of the security breach and contacted the nine individuals who were able to access the information, the company said.

Hundreds of trees have been to the Moon. How they got there and back again is a curious tale.

http://spaceisour.blogspot.com/2006/09/hun...en-to-moon.html

 

Scattered around our planet are hundreds of living things that have been to the Moon and back again. None of them are human. They outnumber active astronauts 3:1. And most are missing.

 

They're trees. "Moon Trees."

 

NASA scientist Dave Williams has found 40 of them and he's looking for more. "They were just seeds when they left Earth in 1971 onboard Apollo 14," explains Williams. "Now they're fully grown. They look like ordinary trees - but they're special because they've been to the Moon."

 

How they got there and back is a curious tale.

 

It begins in 1953 when Stuart Roosa parachuted into an Oregon forest fire. He had just taken a summer job as a US Forest Service "smoke jumper," parachuting into wildfires in order to put them out. It was probably adventure that first attracted Roosa to the job, but he soon grew to love the forests, too. "My father had an affinity for the outdoors," recalls Air Force Lt. Col. Jack Roosa, Stuart's son. "He often reminisced about the tall Ponderosa pine trees from his smoke jumping days."

 

Thirteen years later, NASA invited Roosa, who had since become an Air Force test pilot, to join the astronaut program. He accepted. Roosa, Ed Mitchell and Al Shepard eventually formed the prime crew for Apollo 14, slated for launch in 1971.

 

"Each Apollo astronaut was allowed to take a small number of personal items to the Moon," continued Jack. Their PPKs, or Personal Preference Kits, were often filled with trinkets - coins, stamps or mission patches. Al Shepard took golf balls. On Gemini 3, John Young brought a corned beef sandwich. "My father chose trees," says Jack. "It was his way of paying tribute to the US Forest Service."

 

The Forest Service was delighted.

 

"It was part science, part publicity stunt," laughs Stan Krugman, who was the US Forest Service's staff director for forest genetics research in 1971. "The scientists wanted to find out what would happen to these seeds if they took a ride to the Moon. Would they sprout? Would the trees look normal?" In those days biologists had done few experiments in space; this would be one of the first. "We also wanted to give them away as part of the Bicentennial celebration in 1976."

Trojan Bot Exploits Windows Vulnerability, Drops Rootkit

 

A network creeping Trojan itself is insidious in nature and what if it uses a Rootkit to evade detection as well...

 

Security Experts at MicroWorld Technologies inform that a Trojan Bot is exploiting multiple Windows vulnerabilities to spread in networks, whilst using a Rootkit component to hide its files and processes.

 

'Backdoor.Rbot.ayg' spreads via AOL Instant Messenger at its first level of proliferation. Once it is installed in the system registry, the Bot can move to other computers in the network by exploiting the recently found and patched Server Service Vulnerability-MS06-040 and earlier flaws like MS03-049 in Microsoft Windows.

 

Last month, MicroWorld Technologies had reported about 'IRCBot.st', which exploited MS06-040, to launch a zero-day attack on targeted computers. It had an identical spreading routine using AOL Messenger and was also capable of exploiting earlier flaws in Windows.

 

Backdoor.Rbot.ayg uses 'Win32.Rootkit.l' to hide its files and processes. It communicates to the remote attacker via IRC channels and accepts and executes commands. The Bot can shutdown and restart the computer, log on to websites and download malicious code, log off current user, send files to the intruder, capture network user information and search disks for files.

 

"What's worrying with these sorts of malware samples is that they show increased hybridization in code and Multiple Layering in mode of attack," observes Manoj Mansukhani, Head-Technology and Marketing, MicroWorld Technologies.

 

"As you see, this is a Backdoor Trojan with network creeping abilities, which uses a Rootkit component to hide itself. For spreading, it employs dual channels of Instant Messenger and Vulnerability Exploitation while the Rootkit deposited in the computer can even be used by a future Trojan. All this points towards a lot of planning, improvisation and innovation that goes into creating and proliferating malware today"

 

MicroWorld Labs closely studies the evolution of various malware breeds, to develop and implement dynamic technologies that combat today's emerging threats in a comprehensive manner.

 

Sunil Kripalani, Vice President, Global Sales and Marketing, MicroWorld Technologies, observes "If you are serious about security, you just can't be complacent in patching vulnerabilities in Operating Systems or other applications. However, regardless of security flaws in OS or elsewhere, you must be able to rely on your AntiVirus software to protect your system from all kinds of malware types. And that will be possible only when the security software combines multiple technologies that are proactive and reactive in nature and always keeps a few steps ahead of Virus writers."

Cybercrime Grows Up

 

According to Christopher Painter, cybercrime is no longer the result of a few teenagers with some time on their hands. It is becoming the domain of serious criminals, and they often belong to organized syndicates.

 

Painter is a Deputy Chief of the Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section at the Department of Justice, and he spoke to Reuters this week on the subject of cybercrime. "There has been a change in the people who attack computer networks, away from the ‘bragging hacker' (and) toward those driven by monetary motives," he said.

 

"There are still instances of these ‘lone gunman' hackers," Painter (whose 15-word job description will not be mentioned again) continued, "but more and more, we are seeing organized criminal groups, groups that are often organized online, targeting victims via the Internet." This isn't a trend that benefits the general public.

 

"There is no question the threats are varied, and the perpetrators are more sophisticated," Painter stated. "On the upside, the response is also getting better . . . . In the United States, certainly, sentencing has become more significant in the recognition of the seriousness of Internet crime."

 

Despite these toughening standards, cybercrime is still a serious problem. "The FBI estimates that all types of computer crime in the United States cost industry about $400 billion, while in Britain, the Department of Trade and Industry said computer crime had risen by 50 percent over the last two years," the Reuters article revealed.

 

And as troublesome as this type of criminal activity is, a large portion of the population may remain completely baffled by it. According to Painter, "Because crimes are committed online, a lot of people still don't understand what is happening."
