‘Bom Sabado’ Worm Crashes ORKUT


Looks like social networking sites have become soft targets to the hackers. Have you heard the word "Bom Sabado". It means “Good Saturday" in Portuguese, which is the also the official language of Brazil and known to very few percentage of people in the world till last week. But now everyone would have known this not as a word, but as a dreadful worm virus which crashes Google’s Orkut service. It is a cross-site scripting attack which caused orkut flooded with "Bom Sabado" scraps. How it works? Basically it is a JavaScript based worm that spreads itself through Orkut scraps. This worm is an auto generated message which might look like just another scrap from your buddy. The scrap actually embeds a malicious JavaScript code which infects the profile of the person as soon as he opens the scrap page. Soon after this, the code is executed and it will make the user join bot communities automatically. The worm then starts posting similar scraps to the user's friends using his name, thereby spreading it. The worm also steals browser cookies.

Incase if you were affected by this, make sure you clear all your browser cookies and your Orkut password and security question has been changed. It is advisable not to visit any Orkut profile till this script is blocked. Recently, Twitter faced an attack by hackers after a security flaw was unearthed by a user. Soon after, Facebook faced its worst downtime in four years and now its Orkut's turn to be under attack. That is why I mentioned social networking sites as soft target. However they have taken effective steps to solve this issue as soon as possible.

IS DRUG ADDICTION YOUR PROBLEM?

As per the statistics, each year drug abuse results in around 40 million serious illnesses or injuries among people in the United States. The sad part is more than 500,000 are between the age of 9 and 12. It has become a serious public health problem that affects almost every community and family. Though many people know the bad effects of alcohol such as cancer, birth defects, liver and brain damage, still they consume it considering it as a thing that enhances their status in the society. For most adults, moderate alcohol use is not harmful. But the problem arises when this alcohol consumption becomes alcohol addiction. Nearly 70% of the people in US being addicted to drugs are in need of rehabilitation and that’s the reason for the existence of thousands of drug rehab centers throughout the United States. It is a best option to help those suffering from drugs or alcohol addiction and if someone wishes to move toward a forever recovery from addiction, drug rehab is the best place of support. In case of women, they need to seek professional help from local Drug Rehab as insecurity feeling, low self-confidence, and lack of determination level are some of the main factors that force them to this unhealthy habit. Though the treatment is available to everyone, the treatment process would vary depending on the requirement and addiction level of a patient.

Still some people don’t have proper awareness about the treatment and they consider alcoholism as an incurable disease or it is something that cannot be overcome at any cost. They told it as a droopy form of therapy saying that the probability of recovery is very low and even by chance if they recovered, relapse is part of recovery and they will probably have slipped ups on their way. But this is not true and to sustain it, the result of detailed survey states that thousands of people have overcome their addiction to alcohol and never had a relapse since. So the person who really loves for a forever recovery from these addictions, make your mind towards the effective treatment center for drug and alcohol addiction. An effective alcohol rehabilitation center will not only help a person overcome their addiction medically but also physically, mentally, and emotionally. Begin the journey towards a new beginning without your life being held to ransom by alcohol.

BEST TEETH WHITENING PRODUCT

My close friend used to face some embarrassing moments whenever she goes for the parties, as most of the people would make fun of her yellow teeth. She tried almost every product to come out of this, but all in vain. As per the physician’s advice, she makes her mind to use crest whitestrips supreme, which is a product that can be used by placing a plastic strip directly onto to the teeth. Initially she had some irritation in gums and even white spots on the teeth but vanished after sometime. She felt some changes after 2 days and a few days later, she started getting compliments from all those who made fun earlier. The crest supreme professional whitestrips found to be more effective for yellow teeth. As far as price is concerned, it is comparably lesser than physician the fee for whitening the teeth. The only problem is it will be sensitive to cold and hot water for two days initially. Since the active ingredient in it is hydrogen peroxide, it is not recommended for children under 12. I feel it is the best among all teeth whitening products.

BEWARE OF HEAVY LAPTOP USAGE

Hi friends. Everyday, I almost use to spend half of the day with my laptop and I was terribly shocked to hear the report published by the University Of North Carolina School Of Medicine. According to the report, too much use of computer notebooks could lead to physical ailments such as muscle soreness in the back and the shoulders, headaches and even carpal tunnel syndrome. In particular laptops were mentioned as being more likely to result in long term physical pain, because of their unified physical construction and design that offer few options of use. As we are supposed to look down into the screen and due to the hunched back posture, we are facing spinal problem and even the eyes are getting affected. Due to awkward placement during typing of small, even cramped keyboards, nerve damage to the wrists that occurs. It happens for the people of all the ages and in particular the business working people and the students. It cannot be avoided, but still can adopt some preventive measures such as Proper seating posture, using large monitor while at your desk, taking breaks every 20 minutes to change position and to stretch muscles and finally drinking plenty of water with the addition of some natural fruits and vegetables with your daily food items.

CRICKET – Still a Gentlemen Game?


Cricket – a game considered to be a religion among the people from Asian countries. It is the only sport that brings abundant economy to the country every time especially in African and Asian countries, though once it was said as English men game. But now lot of dirt emerging from it in the form of match fixing and the shocking news is the young talents being involved in it just for money. The recent spot-fixing scam involving Asif, Aameer, Butt brings the question about the gentility of game. Initially seven pakistan players were said to be involved in match fixing against Australia and as of now only the action has been taken against the players involving this dirty activity against England. The three cricketers (Asif, Aameer, Butt) became the first players to be suspended under new ICC rules intended to protect the integrity of the game. ICC chief executive, Lorgat said “We will not tolerate corruption in cricket - simple as that. We must be decisive with such matters and if proven, these offences carry serious penalties up to a life ban. The ICC will do everything possible to keep such conduct out of the game and we will stop at nothing to protect the sport’s integrity.” The anti-corruption unit was set up in 2001, in response to the Hansie Cronje match-fixing scandal, as a means of establishing and publicizing very specific anti-corruption and security measures for players, support staff and administrators and the players will be enquired by this team.

The money is believed to have been part of 150,000 pounds handed over by an undercover reporter to the alleged fixer Mazhar Majeed. The cash, given to Majeed for fixing three no-balls of the Lord's Test between Pakistan and Engalnd, is understood to have been secretly marked so that it could be later identified by police. Early indications suggest the money found in possession of Butt originated from the sting. There are good reasons to believe this was the case. Master blaster, Sachin Tendulkar expressed that ICC should take action against guilty players. He also added that if the allegations are true, they will certainly bring disrepute to the game. As latest information, Salman Butt, Mohammed Aamir and Mohammed Asif have told the investigators that they took money from alleged bookie Mazhar Majeed but denied any wrongdoing. Let’s wait and watch what’s more happened and who else involved in it. However it hurt millions of hearts of cricket freaks.
