US hit by cyber attacks, many federal sites intruded

Thursday, July 9, 2009


I was startled to know of the recent cyber attacks that paralyzed many of the federal sites and other sites of other government agencies of US and South Korea, while I was browsing on top news sites earlier today.

This event reminds me of the Sept. 11, 2001 attack. The US, with all it's might and glory, is also susceptible and vulnerable to attacks. There's really no such thing as "safe" place, for both virtual and real worlds.

I'd better be careful on my online transactions. I've got to observe some security measures to avoid intrusion into my computer.

@Techie Gurl, unsa? mga site nimo na hack? "online account" unsa na nimo, email, Facebook, or Friendster? Paano nimo narecover? Ayaw pag basta basta install ug mga software nga "cracked" kay usually diha sila musulod, naa na nay unod nga trojan nga dili madetect sa imong antivirus kay naka bind sa .exe sa app nga cracked. Tapos naa pud mga URL nga naay palaman nga trojan, lisod ning daghan nay maayo sa kabuang kay delikado. Ang kuyaw kung ang Paypal nato ang ma hack.
