How do you solve a problem like data-entry phishing? ‘Old school’ email social engineering or data-entry phishing is an attack method that has been on the rise in recent months, notably employed by the Syrian Electronic Army to hack seemingly every major media outlet in the Western hemisphere. Data-Entry phishing emails lure employees into freely giving up their login credentials by taking them to a seemingly legitimate landing page. Attackers then use the credentials to establish a foothold in the network. When spear phishing, data-entry style emails contain a link that takes the recipient to a webpage that appears to be a genuine corporate or commercial site soliciting login information. Despite their pervasiveness and high-success rate, data-entry attacks seeking login credentials and other sensitive information have been a secondary concern for enterprises.
Dear Educators: Preprimary thru Elementary age children and our elderly are within the two demographics with the highest incidence of stairway related injuries, most of which happen in the home. The Stairway Manufacturers’ Association members are professional stairbuilders and stair part manufacturers dedicated to reducing stairway accidents through building code reform and education of the industry and the public. This program is part of that effort and presents an opportunity, which you as educators can compliment and reinforce, as our children develop habits essential to life safety. Learning these important lessons will enable them to ―Use Stairs Safely‖ within the built environment and to transfer their knowledge to others by example. This program has been developed by a team of elementary educators and stair professionals and has been classroom tested. We invite your comments and critique to help us improve the program and to learn of the needs of our students and school systems. To contact us simply email SMA@stairways.org . You will find additional information related to stairways and the industry at www.stairways.org . What is the SMA Student Stair Safety Program? This is a program designed for students that can be customized for students of any age to introduce them to the basics of stair safety. The curriculum includes downloadable graphics, lesson plans, coloring/activity book, basic mathematic materials and introduction to stair codes. Why spend classroom time focusing on stairs and stair safety? According to the Home Safety Council's national report on home injuries, the State of Home Safety in America™ (2004), falls accounted for nearly one-third of all unintentional home injury deaths each year. Falls from stairs and steps were the second leading cause of death due to falls. Research has shown that the largest percentage of the falls that result in serious injury are not the result of faulty stair design regulated by building code but rather stairs that are in poor condition or unsafe stair usage that we might significantly affect through education. Not only do stairs present a significant safety risk, but they also present a hands-on learning opportunity for students of all ages to be involved in learning measuring and mathematics.
Nowadays, the MVC pattern is the effective method for the development of modular applications. The MVC design pattern breaks the application into three modules: model, view, and controller. However, developers must have programming skills for creating each module. In addition, they must have the knowledge about Structured Query Language (SQL) for database management. The PHP web authoring (PHP-WA) proposes to remedy these problems. The PHP framework was designed and embedded in the PHP-WA to handle the database. We’re prepared tools that automatically generate the program code for the view module and controller module. Index Terms—MVC, SQL, PHP Web Authoring (PHP-WA) PHP is a server-side scripting language for developing dynamic web applications. One of the defining features of PHP is the ease for developers to access a database. There are several ways to connect to a database, for example, PHP extensions, Active Data Objects DataBase (ADODB), PHP Data Objects (PDO), etc. However, one of the difficult issues in database manipulation is coding the Structured Query Language (SQL). Indeed, several studies suggest that traditional database query language is not very simple to use, for non skilled users of database technologies, as a consequence of the fact that interaction is based on a textual language such as SQL . One way to solve the problem is to develop a web application framework that provides libraries for database manipulation. A web application framework usually implements the Model View Controller (MVC) pattern. The MVC pattern breaks an application into three associated modules: model, view, and controller. The model module is the business logic of the application and is the core of the application . The View is the user interface of the controller. It is the public face of the user event’s response . The Controller component implements the flow of control between the view and the model . The MVC pattern is interesting to research because its simplicity makes it more acceptable to developers. Unfortunately, developers must have programming skills. They will have to design and create a model module that contains the underlying classes whose instances are to be used for manipulating the database. In addition, they must create a controller module Manuscript received May 6, 2011; revised June 1, 2011.
The days of using chart books and hand-plotted charts to track price movement are long gone. Basic technical charts and indicators are provided by virtually all investment-related Web sites. If your charting activities are confined to a quick study of a stock’s historical bar chart and the application of a few basic indicators, your needs should be meet by Web-based tools. However, if you wish to explore various chart types, experiment with a full range of indictors, test and optimize a trading strategy, and screen using technical factors, then software should be considered. Investors interested in technical analysis software will find a wide range of programs from which to choose. There are hundreds of technical analysis programs on the market today, ranging from simple charting software to programs that base buy and sell signals on astrological cycles. Faced with countless choices, it is important to identify what type of analysis you wish to accomplish with software. From there, it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with the features and functionality of a given software package to see if it meets your investment and analysis needs. The goal of this comparison article is to introduce you to some of the more popular technical analysis programs currently on the market. The programs included here all analyze stocks, provide some level of charting, and contain technical indicators. All of these programs can be used for end-of-day analysis, while some also handle intraday (delayed or real-time) data. The comparison grid on pages 1417 examines the features and functions that many of these programs have in common. It is a list of features that a comprehensive, robust technical analysis program should provide. Furthermore, Table 1 on pages 10 and 11 outlines some of the more popular March/April 2002
Abram Mashego and Omphemetse Molopyane Recent statistics by the Southern African Fraud Prevention Service (SAFPS) reveal that identity fraud is on the increase. Based on the year-to-date figure, 1 370 cases had been reported to the SAFPS as at the end of April. Experts warn that the figure could be the tip of the iceberg as the statistics only indicate the cases that have been recorded.
Digital SLR cameras are quite simple. I can hear the cries of outrage right now, but this first statement is true. Let's compare operating a digital SLR to using your television set. These days, TVs come with a wealth of options: memory scan, picture in picture, color correction, sound options. Do you have to use all of these features to watch TV? Not at all. In fact, you only need to know 3 things to watch TV: 1. How to turn it on 2. How to change channels 3. How to increase and decrease the volume Here's the thing: with a digital SLR camera, you ALSO only need to know 3 things: 1. How to turn it on 2. How to change the aperture 3. How to change the shutter speed All text and photos copyright © 2008 The Digital SLR Guide This document may not be reproduced without permission. That's it! OK, you're right. You don't even have to know that much, since many people use their digital SLRs without ever changing aperture or shutter speed. It's easy to use a digital SLR camera in AUTO or PROGRAM mode but this defeats the purpose of owning an SLR camera. One of the benefits of an SLR over a compact point-and-shoot is that you have control over every photo you take. YOU make the decision about how every photo is going to look NOT the camera. Why is this important? Because your digital SLR is - in the end - just a small computer. While it excels at processing millions of colored dots of information, it makes pretty poor judgment calls about the artistic qualities of your photos. Once you wrestle control of aperture and shutter speed away from the camera and make them your own, you'll see a remarkable improvement in all of the photos you take. Before You Begin Before you get too deep into this lesson, I'd like you to do something for me. Go out and take a few shots with your camera. The subject doesn't have to be anything special - just find something (or someone) you enjoy photographing. You also don't have to go crazy, just 10 or 20 photos will do. I'll tell you what this is all about when you're done with the e-course. Definitions Here comes the tough part of this week's digital SLR course - the definitions. While I try to keep these as simple as possible, it's inevitable that some of the finer points won't be immediately understood. Don't despair. These definitions will become clear over time - the most important thing is that you practice a lot and see for yourself what effect each camera setting has on your photos. We'll take care of the practice part in the Exercises, but those come later.
LONDON – A year has passed since the American former intelligence contractor Edward J. Snowden began revealing the massive scope of Internet surveillance by the U.S. National Security Agency. His disclosures have elicited public outrage and sharp rebukes from close U.S. allies like Germany, upending rosy assumptions about how free and secure the Internet and telecommunications networks really are. Single-handedly Snowden has changed how people regard their phones, tablets and laptops, and sparked a public debate about the protection of personal data. What his revelations have not done is bring about significant reforms. To be sure, U.S. President Barack Obama, spurred by an alliance between civil society organizations and the technology industry, has taken some action. In a January speech, and an accompanying presidential policy directive, Obama ordered American spies to recognize that “all persons should be treated with dignity and respect, regardless of their nationality or where
