GEEK TO ME: Sites asking to download software may be trying to slip in…

first_img GEEK TO ME: Sites asking to download software may be trying to slip in malware By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 TAGS  WhatsApp Pinterest Pinterest WhatsApp >> Jeff Werner is a software engineer and has been writing this column since 2007. Question: When and why have web sites that you are just searching for information asking you to download their complete program first? Sure would not take long to fill a hard drive.– Glenn H.Shalimar, Florida Answer: Glenn, I wrote back to you asking for an example of what you’re talking about, but didn’t receive a response from you. I’m a little concerned that you’re experiencing this behavior, because as you alluded to, it’s not normal. I suspect that something is trying to slip malware past you and is disguising it as a programmatic download during the course of your regular website browsing. Kudos on being alert and spotting it. Having said that, there are some instances where this apparently odd behavior is actually normal. It is increasingly rare for this to be necessary, but there is still the occasional site that needs to actually install software on your computer in order to function. One example I can think of immediately is online virus scanners. The required heuristics and scanning engine and virus signature file must be resident on your computer before it can function. So, although it takes the form of a web page, it’s basically installing a piece of software (albeit temporarily) so it can perform the scan. Imagine what a piece of malware could get away with on your system if you gave it explicit permission to install itself and run! Just remember, malware authors program their trash to say and do anything and everything to convince you to “click here” and get it onto your computer. Just because something calls itself “Mega Awesome Super-Ultimate Virus Killer” doesn’t mean that’s what it actually is. Question: We recently switched from CenturyLink to Cox. We still pay CenturyLink for our email since we will not be able to use our email address once we cancel. We considered using Gmail since we would be able to keep the same email address if we switch internet providers in the future but we have some issues with them. Which provider would be safe to use in case we aren’t happy with Cox? Also, will we lose all of our old emails? And what’s the best way to switch over? Please reply soon as we need to ditch the extra CenturyLink bill.– Arlene L.Niceville, Florida Answer: It is very common these days for people to maintain their e-mail at one of many free e-mail providers, for the exact reasons you gave. People don’t like to be tied to their Internet Service Provider, and the tether of years’ worth of e-mail makes it difficult to pull-up stakes and move your service when and if you decide to. The alternative is to wind up double-billed, as you currently find yourself. I know of around a dozen free e-mail services available on the Internet today, which you can discover for yourself with a simple Google search. Arguably, Gmail is probably the best among them. It has excellent features worthy of either personal or business-class e-mail, including a superior SPAM filter, complete archive and search capabilities, both POP3 and IMAP access, and much more. Gmail is seamlessly and directly supported on all major PC and mobile platforms. In other words, you can send an e-mail at home on your Mac, read the reply on your iPhone, and respond to it on your work PC – all effortlessly, and seamlessly. It just works. One caveat: Gmail (owned by the same company that owns Google) is in the business of information gathering. I have never heard of this information being used for nefarious purposes, but if you don’t like your interests being mined for possible future marketing, then Gmail may not be for you. As for me, I have at least 5 Gmail accounts for both personal and business use, and as far as I know, nothing bad has ever come from them mining my data. As for your old mail, Gmail supports a direct-import function that works with most existing e-mail accounts. From within Gmail you click the gear icon, then “Settings”. On the Settings page, go to the “Accounts and Import” tab. Find “Import mail and contacts” and click on it. Another dialog with an import wizard will open. Carefully follow the instructions, and it will guide you through the steps to import your old e-mail into Gmail. Well, I’ve gone and spent most of my space singing the merits of Gmail, but don’t overlook Yahoo! Mail, Outlook.com (formerly Hotmail), and several other providers. Like Gmail, they offer many features of their own, and best of all, they are free. So, don’t hesitate to try them all, then pick the one you like best.

‘Non-Cooperation During Investigation Is Irrelevant In Plea For Revocation Of Pardon’: Delhi HC Dismisses ED’s Plea Against Grant Of Pardon To Rajiv Saxena [Read Judgment]

On this ground, the single-Judge bench of Justice C. Hari Shankar on Monday dismissed the Enforcement Directorate’s plea for revocation of pardon granted to Rajiv Saxena, one of the accused in the VVIP Chooper Scam case. The court observed that the Dubai-based businessman was yet to be examined by the Trial Court, and merely because the Public Prosecutor had issued a “Certificate for revocation of pardon” under Section 308 (1) of CrPC, on the basis of investigation, would not lead to revocation of pardon. “Non-co-operation, during investigation, is not one of the circumstances contemplated, by Section 308 (1), as justifying issuance of certificate by the Public Prosecutor. Quite obviously, this is because the condition, whereunder pardon is granted to the accomplice, is candour before the court, and not candour before the investigating officer,” the court held while terming the certificate of the Public Prosecutor to be a “futility”. Background A Special CBI Court in Delhi had allowed Saxena to turn approver and had granted him pardon on March 25, 2019. The ED had thereafter moved the Special Court in Rouse Avenue Court against the grant of pardon contending that Saxena had exhibited bad faith, and had demurred from making a full and true disclosure of the facts and circumstances of the case, which was one of the essential conditions, subject to which pardon had been granted to him, by the Special Judge. The application however came to be dismissed on March 5 this year as premature, for Saxena was yet to depose before the court as a witness. The present judgment, which in the words of Justice Hari Shankar bears an interplay between Section 306 and Section 308 of CrPC, has been passed in ED’s plea for quashing of the aforesaid order of the Special Court and for revocation of Saxena’s approver status. Legal Provisions Section 306 of IPC empowers a Chief Judicial Magistrate or a Metropolitan Magistrate to tender pardon to an accused at any stage of the investigation or inquiry, on condition of his making a full and true disclosure of the whole of the circumstances within his knowledge relative to the offence. Sub-section 4(a) thereunder stipulates that every person accepting a tender of pardon shall be examined as a witness in the Court of the Magistrate taking cognizance of the offence and in the subsequent trial, if any. Section 308(1) of the Code contemplates trial of a person who has accepted a tender of pardon but in the opinion of the Public Prosecutor has either by willfully concealing anything essential or by giving false evidence, not complied with the condition on which the tender was made. Examination by court is mandatory The High Court has held that both the above provisions, i.e. Section 306(4) and 308(1) are essential for revocation of pardon. It was clarified that examination of the approver, under Section 306 (4) is, “ex-facie, mandatory”. “Examination of the approver, under Section 306 (4) is, ex-facie, mandatory. Thereafter, the proceeding may follow one of two paths. Absent any infraction, by the approver, of the conditions of pardon, the trial of the main offence continues, and the approver is liable to be arraigned as a prosecution witness therein. If, however, the approver breaches the conditions of pardon, by concealing material facts or tendering false evidence, the Public Prosecutor is empowered to so certify, in which case the approver becomes an accused, in respect of the offence for which pardon had been tendered to him, and becomes liable to be tried for the said offence,” the court expounded. Certificate of Public Prosecutor u/s 308(1) CrPC is irrelevant before examination of approver in court The High Court held that concealment of essential facts, or tendering of false evidence, by the approver, has necessarily to relate to his evidence, as recorded “during trial” under Section 306 (4), and cannot relate to his conduct during investigation. Accordingly it held that the certificate of the Public Prosecutor, issued in the present case, was an exercise in “futility”, inasmuch as it was not preceded by the recording of the evidence of the approver, under Section 306 (4), Cr PC. The court held, “Tendering of pardon, to an accomplice, under Section 306 (1), Cr PC, and his conversion, thereby, into an approver, has, inexorably, to be succeeded by his examination, as a witness, under Section 306 (4). It is during the course of such statement, that the Public Prosecutor would be able to discern whether the approver is, or is not, abiding by the conditions, subject to which pardon was tendered in, of making a full and true disclosure of all facts within his knowledge. If the approver is found to have concealed something essential, or to be tendering false evidence, the Public Prosecutor would so certify, under Section 308 (1), whereupon, as the learned ASG correctly submits, the approver would metamorphose into an accused, and would be liable to be tried, separately, in respect of the offence for which he had been tendered pardon, any other offence in which he may be found to be involved, and the offence of providing false evidence (with the leave of the High Court).” It added, “In the absence of any such statement, or evidence, it was not open to the Public Prosecutor to certify, regarding compliance, by the approver, of the conditions of pardon.” This, Justice Hari Shankar said, is essential because there is likelihood that the approver may come clean and disclose all information known to him, before the court; and in such a circumstance, the Public Prosecutor will not have to issue the certificate under Section 308(1). In this backdrop he remarked, “Had the evidence of the respondent been recorded, under Section 306 (4), as statutorily ordained, it is quite possible that he may have come clean, and disclosed all information known to him, without giving any false evidence…The disclosure before the Court is what, therefore, may tilt the scale, one way or the other. Candour, and a clean breast, are, therefore, expected, of the approver, in his evidence before the Court, and, so long as that is forthcoming, no case for invoking, against him, Section 308 (1) of the Cr PC can be said to exist, no matter how much he may have prevaricated during the investigative process.” In fact, it was emphasized that Section 306(1) itself aids in the interpretation of Section 308(1) by clarifying that “the purpose of granting tenure of pardon, to an accomplice-accused, case “obtaining (of his) evidence”. The obtaining of evidence has to be by the Magistrate, Judicial Magistrate, or Magistrate of the first class, tendering pardon; not by the investigating officer.” He also observed that the Certificate of the Public Prosecutor in the present case did not allege that, before the Court, the respondent had concealed anything essential, or had given false evidence. “A holistic reading of the application, filed by the petitioner before the learned Special Judge, reveals that the grievance of the petitioner is, essentially, that the respondent has not cooperated during investigation, and has withheld material in his possession,” the bench said. Distinction of facts simplicitor does not oust application of a precedent In the impugned judgment, the Special Judge had placed extensive reliance on State v. Jagjit Singh, 1989 Supp (2) SCC 770, whereby it was observed that revocation of pardon can only be as per the procedure provided U/s 308 Cr PC which mandates that approver be examined in the Court before revoking the pardon. The ED had claimed that reliance on this precedent was erroneous inasmuch as the present case could be distinguished on the basis of facts. It was pointed out that in that case, observations were made in the context of a situation in which there was no certificate, by the Public Prosecutor, under Section 308 (1). In the present case however, it was submitted that such a certificate exists and thus there is no need for examination of the approver, by a court. Rejecting this argument, the bench observed that no two cases are absolutely identical on facts and the same is not a pre-requisite for application of a Supreme Court precedent on the subordinate courts. In fact, if that were the case Justice Hari Shankar said, precedential value Article 141 of the Constitution would be reduced to a “dead letter”. He held, “It is true that, at times, a single distinguishing fact, may affect, vitally, the applicability of an earlier pronouncement, as a precedent in a later case. Equally true, however, is it that every distinguishing factual circumstance cannot result in evisceration of the precedential value of an earlier judgment. It is also trite, and well settled, that hierarchically lower judicial authorities ought not to seek to escape the precedential value of a pronouncement of the Supreme Court, constitutionally sanctified by Article 141, by relying on factual distinctions, which do not affect the ratio decidendi of the judgment.” The mere fact that the Public Prosecutor has issued a certificate, under Section 308 (1) of the CrPC, even before the evidence of the approver was recorded under Section 306 (4) cannot make any difference to the legal position, the court held. In view of these observations, the High Court dismissed ED’s plea with liberty to the agency to re-approach the Special Judge by an appropriate application, at the appropriate stage.

Troy mourns loss of iconic political figure

Britt… read more Latest Stories Md: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch) Troy mourns loss of iconic political figure Book Nook to reopen Sponsored Content By Jaine Treadwell Johnnie Mae Warren, an iconic figure in Troy’s political history, died Tuesday in Montgomery.  She was 97 years of age.Warren was a leader in the Civil Rights Movement and the first female African American elected to the Troy City Council. She served two terms on the Council, from 1985 until 1992.Troy Mayor Jason A. Reeves said the City of Troy is saddened to learn of the death of Johnnie Mae Warren. “With the block vote, they had great political influence and they continued to look to Johnnie Mae for leadership. So, she was a force to be reckoned with,” he said. “Johnnie Mae controlled a lot of votes and she was a vital clog in the Ben Reeves/Gardner Bassett political machine.”Flowers said Pike County Probate Judge Reeves and State Rep. Bassett had formed an alliance and when Warren came into the alliance, she was perhaps the most powerful of the three because she could pull more votes.“If you were running for political office in Pike County, the first house you wanted to visit was Johnnie Mae Warren’s,” Flowers said and added laughing. “When I ran for state representative in 1982, I knew which house to go to first.”Flowers said there was an old adage that said those who wanted to run for political office and win, had to kiss the king’s ring.“In Troy and Pike County, you had to kiss the queen’s ring,” Flowers said, laughing. “Johnnie Mae liked to use those old adages and I can remember one time a candidate, who had done her wrong, was in a close race, one that was too close to call. Johnnie Mae said she going to see what she could do about that. When he lost by 200 votes, she winked at me and said, ‘What goes around, comes around.’“Johnnie Mae and I were close friends and there was not a finer lady anywhere. I was always glad to have her in my corner.”Johnny Witherington, Troy City Council president, agreed that Warren was a was a “dear, sweet lady.”“She cared deeply about Troy and all of its people and gave of herself to our community in many ways,” he said. “And, that included being elected as the first woman to serve in Troy city government. She worked hard to make things happen. It was a joy to serve with her. She made a difference for the better in our community.”Witherington said he will never forget the day in 1985 when that first Troy City Council was sworn in.“Ms. Johnnie Mae stood there with her hand on the Bible, surrounded by her many family and friends,” he said. “She took her oath of office with tears streaming down her face. It meant a great deal to her and so it has for our community. Troy, Alabama is a better place today because of people like Johnnie Mae Warren.”Much can be said about Warren and the influence she had on the community politically but she had as much influence in the private sector of the community, Ann McMillian said.“Ms. Warren was one of the pioneers of Bethel Missionary Baptist Church here in Troy,” McMillian said. “She loved her church and the loved all the church members. She would go out of her way to do for others.”And Warren was fearless in her caring. Even during trying times.“Back during the days of segregation, she let students from Tuskegee live in her home,” McMillian said. “The students went around registering people to vote. Everybody else was afraid to let the students stay in their homes. But the students were peaceful and Ms. Warren thought it was important for all people to get to vote.”McMillian said she can’t say for sure, but it was said that Warren was among those who went to Washington D.C. and lobbied in an effort to get food stamps in Pike County.“She helped organize the Concerned Citizens Club here and she sparked the idea for the Travelers’ Club for senior citizens,” McMillian said. “The Travelers’ Club celebrated 20 years Saturday night and we honored Ms. Warren. Her son, Dr. Eddie Warren, was there and we hope he went back and shared with her all the many good things that were said.”McMillian said Warren was an all around good person, who thought more of herself than she did of others.“She was a humanitarian and people all around knew of the good things she did for all people,” she said.Shelia Jackson, Troy public relations director, said Warren helped her get her first job with the city.“Ms. Warren was always looking out for other people and doing what she could to help them better themselves,” she said. “She will be remembered for the role she played in the political arena but, those of us who knew her, will remember her fearless spirit and her willingness to go the extra mile to help others. She genuinely cared about people and she made life better for more people than we will ever know. She was greatly appreciated and she was well loved.”Funeral services for Warren will be at 2 p.m. Saturday at Bethel Missionary Baptist Church in Troy, where she was a longtime member. “During her tenure on the Troy City Council, she put in place programs to expand opportunity, lift people out of poverty and inspire others to become better citizens. She heped advance the cause of equal rights for all,” Reeves said. “Our city is a better place because of Ms. Johnnie Mae Warren. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, friends and loved ones.”Warren was elected to the Troy City Council at the same time, Jimmy Lunsford was elected full-time mayor. Lunsford said Warren’s election to the Council was a milestone in Troy’s city government.“Johnnie Mae Warren was one of the most caring people I have ever known in politics,” Lunsford said. “Her goal was always to help somebody. She would call the office and say the utilities department was cutting down an oak tree on a particular street and she wondered if they could cut the limbs in small pieces so people would use them for firewood. She was that kind of person.” Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Lunsford said Warren realized the old public works building didn’t have a break room for its employees and she made it her business to see that they got one. And it was named in her honor.“Johnnie Mae Warren had a great attitude and she was always thinking about what she could do to make Troy a better place,” Lunsford said. “Her greatest legacy would be her desire and efforts to help people.”Former Alabama Rep. Steve Flowers said Warren was a highly recognized and respected leader of the African American community and has a definite place, not only in Troy history, but in Pike County history as well.“A lot of people don’t know or realize it but Pike County didn’t have the kind of racial turmoil during the Civil Rights Movement that other cities experienced because of Johnnie Mae Warren,” Flowers said. “Troy and Pike County survived Civil Rights’ changes without friction and conflicts because of her quiet leadership. She was a advocate for African Americans and she followed Martin Luther King Jr.’s lead for peaceful change.”Flowers said Warren, forged a close relationship with Pike County political wheel Ben Reeves and city leaders and they sat down and worked things to the best of all citizens.Warren was also the leader in the African American politics.Flowers said, when African Americans started voting they voted in blocks.

Keble Ball faces access concerns over accommodation cost

first_imgRooms have been secured at various other sites for both student and alumni guests, including 160 rooms reserved at Oxford Brookes University. However, the cheapest room price available is £40, with most being £50 – whilst Keble accommodation averages out to around £20-21 per night, excluding vacation residence. Students also called for greater transparency in the ball organisation process, saying that the ball committee had the opportunity to ask students for their opinion but did not take it, and that there should be a factsheet compiled so that students are aware of proceedings. Numerous elements of the ball organisation were criticised, including the decision to sell alumni tickets first and the price of accommodation being provided at other sites. “You were supposed to represent us and you didn’t represent us,” said third-year Keble student Hannah Al-Qaryooti at Sunday’s meeting. “Students can’t just drop £50 on accommodation.” Keble College did not respond to a request for comment. JCR President Annie Johnson said that a meeting had been held Keble College faced accusations of inaccessibility this week following an announcement that students would not be provided with onsite accommodation during the college’s Commemoration Ball in 2020, leading to the postponement of accommodation release and a reconsidering of the decision. Students filed an emergency motion which was discussed at the college JCR meeting on Sunday (October 20), saying that the decision not to provide onsite accommodation raised a number of welfare and access concerns, such as drunk students struggling to make their way home and students being unable to come due to the financial burden of paying for accommodation outside college. price increase and the decision to hold the ball outside of term time, in 9th week.center_img However, both committee members who attended the meeting, one of whom was the executive Sam Edwards, voted in favour of the motion, which they said they had “nothing against.” Accommodation release has now been postponed by 10 days, with tickets to be released on the same day. Alumni tickets were released more than two weeks ahead, and a number of more expensive rooms ranging from £75 and upwards were also made available to them on the Keble Ball website, along with discount codes. It also emerged that fewer tickets have been reserved for students than in previous years, with a reserve of 1000 tickets for students and their guests. This is 400 fewer than the usual amount, as more tickets have been allocated for alumni. The committee stated that the usual number of Keble students and their guests who pur- chase tickets is between 700 and 800, and thus in theory the normal uptake is guaranteed a ticket. on Monday (October 21) with the chair of the Ball Committee and the Alumni and Development Of- fice, and that the decision not to provide accommodation was now being reconsidered. “I don’t want to book tickets if I’m not guaranteed accommodation,” said one fourth-year student who did not wish to be named. One concern which arose during the meeting was that the available accommodation at Oxford Brookes would suffice for just 160 students, whereas around 700-800 students would need rooms. However, the committee responded to this by saying more rooms could be booked once the reserved rooms had been paid for. This was echoed in the mo- tion itself, which claimed that it “feels as if the focus has not only been adjusted to incorporate the wider Keble Family, but has actually been re-adjusted, lying mainly with alumni and affiliates, with students’ worries and needs being put on hold.” Many students highlighted that working alumni are able to pay for accommodation and tickets, but lower-income students will not be able to pay the combined price of the ball ticket, transport to Oxford and accommo- dation costs as a result of the ticket Al-Qaryooti’s calls for an emer- gency panel meeting in which the college working party would have to answer the students’ concerns was widely supported, espe- cially following the revelation that graduate students at the offsite H.B. Allen Centre would be granted accommodation during the ball. “If they actually have to look at us in the face and justify it, they’ll real- ise that their security concerns are nothing compared to the concerns of the undergraduates,” said Al- Qaryooti. The Keble Ball Committee said it had worked very hard to try to secure rooms in college and had pushed back against college administration for several weeks, following their insistence that rooms would not be provided. This is said to be due to a “security risk,” a claim which the motion called “dubious at best” due to the lack of justification provided. “There’s more of a security risk because more important people are coming to the ball, i.e. not stu- dents, and they care more about alumni than they do about us,” said Al-Qaryooti.last_img read more
