SingCert raises a worm alert. The worm dubbed "Singworm" sends an infectious link to all the MSN contacts of the infected user.
There have been reports of a worm (dubbed "Singworm") spreading through the MSN messenger instant messaging client. Users are infected when they execute the malware downloaded from the infectious link sent from their MSN contacts. Singworm is a cocktail of various pieces of malware built mainly for spamming.
Singworm will download another adware/spyware-like program (winsys.exe) whose variants have been known to be involved in various types of data theft, including login details, banking information and personal data.

Very happy to post new wip images of a character I am doing for submission to Exotique. There’s still a lot of stuff left to tweak, but I am happy with the progress. Competition is getting tougher and tougher these days.

[Eidos' Ian] Livingstone opined that Singapore lacked "the ability to think outside the box to create new intellectual property, new game-play and new characters". Then, just to add insult to injury, he bemoaned: "The tendency here [Singapore] is to make copies of previous games, rather than to think about what the world hasn't seen before or what new games haven't been done before. [There must be a] unique selling point that differentiates them [game developers] from everyone else."

So, the verdict is finally out. The 17 year-old guy had really been charged just for a simple act of wifi mooching. Simple as that. So what really happened is that, the guy was bored, went out to mooch, noticed by a kay-poh neighbour who then called the police even when the wifi-network didn’t belong to him/her?
Recommended by Anonymous Coward: "Does this set the context of wifi-mooching? But I bet that there are probably quite a few out there who are still mooching on unsecured networks, away from the peering eyes of the neighbour. There is no mention of content, but theft is theft, isn't it? It doesn't matter what the thief stole."

Here I am paying tribute to the greatest computer company in the world - Apple Computer. Here's to the insanely great 30 years that has come and gone, and to many many more to come.
