Home-made Hydrogen Bomb
Yes, this is one of *MY* pages, and yes, it is a home-made hydrogen bomb.
Why not dust off those old chemistry and physics textbooks, do the calculations
then drop me a line to suggest what will happen?
Proof that some bureaucrats are idiots (some???).
SirCam, The Real Threat Within
Like most people on the Net, I've been receiving a regular stream of emails
infected with the SirCam virus.
Unlike a seemingly large proportion of Net users, I'm not stupid enough to
open the booby-trapped attachments -- but I have been astonished at what
they sometimes contain.
I wonder just how many people realise the massive security risk that this
virus poses to their sensitive documents and information?
So far I've had "confidential" dealer price lists, inter-office memos,
legal documents, and yesterday -- an extremely interesting and potentially
very newsworthy official document from an address in the .gov.ph domain
(which I have subsequently deleted and don't intend to pursue).
It's already happened?
If the quantity and content of the material I've received as a result of SirCam
infections is any indicator, I suspect that the commercial damage this little
virus is causing may currently be vastly underestimated.
Just how many companies have had their commercial secrets emailed off to
God-knows-who, and don't even realise it?
How long before we see the first expose of some shocking goings on within
a high-profile corporation or government as a result of confidential
information being emailed off to someone who cares?
What's worse, it now appears that a number of people are getting hit with
a double-whammy by SirCam. Cases have been reported where the attached file
contains not only a copy of SirCam, but other viruses from an infected user's
I wonder if all these people infected with the SirCam or whose webservers
are playing host to the Code Red virus also drive around without their seatbelts
fastened or engage in unprotected sex?
