CD-R King Website Attacked by Hackers!

The hackers attacked again! This time though, not on a government owned website, but in a commercial one. CD-R king, one of the Philippines most popular retailer of computer and electronic accessories, was target of the latest attack.

Their “new products” webpage was defaced by the hackers. All the names of their new product offerings were replaced by the words “Hacked by Fending”. Below is the image of the defaced CD-R King website.

This attack just one among the series of hacker attacks targeted on Philippine websites. Late last year and early January, 2010, a number of government websites were also defaced by hacker groups. TESDA, DOH, DOLE and NDCCs websites were among them.

Last week, Google expressed their denunciation of what they described as “highly sophisticated” targeted attack on their corporate infrastructure which leads to intellectual property theft. Though Google doesn’t directly accused the Chinese government as being the one behind the attack, the company said the attacks came from China and are targeted to “human rights”
activists’ Gmail accounts.

Web Security Awareness

These events pose a serious question on our awareness regarding the threats on the internet. How many people who have PCs have updated antivirus software? How many people even know the importance of antivirus software? Do you know security terms such as identity theft? How about phishing? The best technique to survive an attack is to know how the bad guys attack. Information is the best tool we can use against cyber crime.

SCAM: My First Scam Text This Year; 850000 Pesos from GMA Kapuso Foundation

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers. And despite all the efforts by PLDT and Globe Telecom to curb text message scammers, from time to time, they still creep out and show up in our inboxes. And as hard to believe as the messages of winning some great amounts of money is the fact that there are still people who believe them. I personally know someone and that scam text message triggered events that turn her life upside down. So my point is, we still need to be careful regarding these scam messages. The danger is real!

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad recently needs to have a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. So I made a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, turns out, it depends on many factors such as which part of the body is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast" wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information this technique of adding contrast is know as Gadolinium Contrast Medium . It adds cost to the procedure but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis. MRI Machine KasugaHuang , CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link So, in my father's case, we had a Prostate MRI and I assume it's without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in i-Scan Healthcare Inc here in Quezon City. The cost is 13000 Pesos . Please take not that the amount was just for the scan and the result will be read by a separate professional.
