George and Edna

Posted by Pavan DBA on March 5, 2010

Just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to, doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have. George and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital. One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool, George suddenly jumped into the deep end.

He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there.

Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottomand pulled him out. When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna’s heroic act she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she now considered her to be mentally stable.

When she went to tell Edna the news she said, ‘Edna, I have goodnews and bad news. The good news is you’re being discharged,since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of the person you love.. I have concluded that your act displays sound mindedness.

The bad news is, George hung himself in the bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but he’s dead.’

Edna replied, ‘He didn’t hang himself, I put him there to dry…
How soon can I go home?’

Critical Flaw in Internet Explorer

Posted by Pavan DBA on January 20, 2010

A critical flaw has been recently discovered in the Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (IE) that if exploited could lead to a complete compromise of a victim’s computer.
An  attack may come in several forms, but it most commonly occurs when a user visits a malicious or infected website by clicking on the link embedded in a
phishing email or received via instant messaging. It is also possible for the attack to succeed via the use of malicious banner ads.

This Internet Explorer flaw has been exploited  in the wave of recent attacks against a number of high profile companies, Google being one such company. To
make the situation worse, the attack code has been released publicly on the internet which significantly increases the possibility of further widespread attacks
using the vulnerability, therefore placing Internet Explorer users at potentially serious risk.

Microsoft is working on a patch in order to correct the flaw, our Antivirus and network defense mechanisms have been updated to help identify and block this
attack.  However, the recent attacks on other companies have succeeded as a result of employees not taking basic security precautions. Follow these basic steps when it comes to every day use of computing

1. Never open any suspicious email attachments.
2. Never click on any links in suspicious emails.
3. Always make sure your Antivirus software is up to date
4. Never connect a device like USB etc onto the network/computer/personal desktop
5. Be extra vigilant when visiting any website in the Internet
6. Never click on any suspicious pop up windows (asking you to install a free codec or that your computer is infected with a virus)
7. Never click on any embedded media contents
8. Due to the significance of the recent earthquake in Haiti, attackers may try to take advantage to incorporate malware with Haiti-related web content.
Do not click on any links in any suspicious and/or unsolicited emails which claims to have the latest development on the Haiti disaster.
