Worm to evolve on April 1
SAN FRANCISCO - A TENACIOUS computer worm which has wriggled its way onto machines worldwide is set to evolve on April Fool's Day, becoming harder to exterminate but not expected to wreak havoc.
A task force assembled by Microsoft has been working to stamp out the worm, referred to as Conficker or DownAdUP, and the US software colossus has placed a bounty of US$250,000 on the heads of those responsible for the threat.
The worm is programmed to modify itself on Wednesday to become harder to stop, according to Trend Micro threat researcher Paul Ferguson, who is part of the Conficker task force. '
There is no evidence of it going into attack mode or dropping any particular payload on April 1st,' Mr Ferguson said in an interview. '
What people controlling the botnet are doing is building in survivability because of efforts by the good guys to lessen the harm of this thing.' The worm, a self-replicating program, takes advantage of networks or computers that haven't kept up to date with security patches for Windows RPC Server Service.
It can infect machines from the Internet or by hiding on USB memory sticks carrying data from one computer to another. Once in a computer it digs deep, setting up defenses that make it hard to extract.
Malware could be triggered to steal data or turn control of infected computers over to hackers amassing 'zombie' machines into 'botnet' armies.
A troubling aspect of Conficker is that it harnesses computing power of a botnet to crack passwords.
Microsoft has modified its free Malicious Software Removal Tool to detect and get rid of Conficker.
'As this threat continues to evolve, Microsoft and other collaborative companies will continue to identify new ways to disrupt the Conficker threat to give customers more time to update their systems,' said Christopher Budd, security response communication lead for Microsoft. -- AFP

Hi everyone, give a helping by saving the earth by switching off the power in order to save the planet :-)
- - - - - About Earth Hour - - - - -
YOUR LIGHT SWITCH IS YOUR VOTE
This year, Earth Hour has been transformed into the world’s first global election, between Earth and global warming.
For the first time in history, people of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote – Switching off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming. WWF are urging the world to VOTE EARTH and reach the target of 1 billion votes, which will be presented to world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009.
This meeting will determine official government policies to take action against global warming, which will replace the Kyoto Protocol. It is the chance for the people of the world to make their voice heard.
Earth Hour began in Sydney in 2007, when 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour. In 2008 the message had grown into a global sustainability movement, with 50 million people switching off their lights. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square all stood in darkness.
In 2009, Earth Hour is being taken to the next level, with the goal of 1 billion people switching off their lights as part of a global vote. Unlike any election in history, it is not about what country you’re from, but instead, what planet you’re from. VOTE EARTH is a global call to action for every individual, every business, and every community. A call to stand up and take control over the future of our planet. Over 74 countries and territories have pledged their support to VOTE EARTH during Earth Hour 2009, and this number is growing everyday.
We all have a vote, and every single vote counts. Together we can take control of the future of our planet, for future generations.
VOTE EARTH by simply switching off your lights for one hour, and join the world for Earth Hour.

things are changing,
lifes changes.character and mentality starts to change.
as things are undergoing changes, it's also the time for humans to adapt to it.
take a turn in life and you may realise that life is not what you thought it was.
if there's a million wishes,
i wish that i would be able to forget her and move on.
i wish that i would do well for what i always do.
i wish that i would stop foolish thinkings.
i wish that i could find some time to blog all my feelings.
i wish that i could use more vocabulary to lament my thoughts.
i wish that we would get back to what we used to be.
i wish that things won't stop here.
i wish that i never once did those foolish things.
i wish that i should've tolerated more and continue with the r/s.
i wish that i wouldn't have wished for anything.
i wish that more money would appear.
i wish that i'm not so stubborn.
i wish that she could accept me once again.
i wish that i can now just stop everything and reverse that time so that i can catch up.
i wish that i can still turn to her and pour everything out like how i once did.
i wish that everything will return to what it should be.
yet, all these are just foolish thinkings.

I feel so vulnerable wasn't in the right mood since yesterday night. i had problem sleeping again. i don't really wish it was a total heartbreak instead of having it to crack slowly. i wish i need not be so emotionally carried away by her. i wish mum didn't stroke my hair like how babygirl once did. i wish that no one will remind me of stuffs that immediately links me to her and making me see images in my mind of her getting out of the bed. it really hurts me a lot. my heart is aching so much for her that i find it so difficult to breathe. why am i stuck in this situation? i really feel myself as a burden to everybody. i lost my soul for it's not with me. i lose my concentration totally.
I relied too much on you that when you're no longer beside me, i begin to fall deeply.
i know i have made you angry but i don't know the reason. now, i don't even know who is at fault. perhaps, it was me. i don't want to be affected by you. really. but somehow, because you are already part of me, your every action counts and adds on to my agony. my mind's in a blank, nothing is in me but you. i did try to put you aside and concentrate but each time i try, i fail. i tried to think about the happy moments but the happy moments with you simply makes me more vulnerable than ever. whenever i think about ite, i would think of you because you are once part of the ite life. that's how i got to know you. images of you trying to cry over me breaks my heart. my heart beats for you and at the same time, it aches for you too. i'm feeling really awful and terrible.
i read through my archives and we are really sweet in the past. things really turned haywire for the past 1 months. you were away to malaysia for one week. and after that, i was away to IT Show for one week. we didn't really have time to talk and meet each other. now that your parents found out more about us, i really find it so difficult to hold on. i tried my best to stay strong, to hold back my tears, to face everyone with a smile but i failed. you used to be the one who will encourage me but now, i don't have you by my side and i'm left with friends. i remember once when i cried over my results, i was crying so badly. now that you are not here for me, how am i suppose to lament my thoughts through tears? tearing is the only way i can lament my sorrows out.
do you remeber the first time we sang together? on the phone, we are singing Ting Ma Ma De Hua. how we grew closer and eventually become stead? and how chat over the phone will late night? when we hold hands? how we spent our anniversary? how you consoled me when i'm down? how you encourage me whenever i meet something that i can't handle? i hate to see the fact that we are falling out.
