But it's a fake email. Including malware Based on the article by nakedsecurity.sophos.com

Cybercriminals are attempting to infect computers around the world, disguising their attack as an email claiming to come from United Parcel Service about a parcel delivery.

But this time they're not using words, they're using an embedded image to trick you into clicking on the link.

What's interesting is that there is no actual text inside the email's message body, instead it consists solely of an image - presumably with the intention of attempting to slip past the more rudimentary anti-spam filters.

Attached to the email is a file called USPS_Document.zip, which contains the malware attack. Sophos detects the ZIP file proactively as Mal/BredoZp-B and the enclosed file as the Troj/Agent-QGH Trojan horse.

The malware is only capable of infecting computers running Windows.

If you are one of the many people seeing this malware attack in your email this morning, please do not click on the attachment even if you are waiting for a package to be delivered. Instead, simply delete the email and your computer will be safe.

This latest attack follows hard on the heels of another widespread assault on users' inboxes which began to strike earlier this week, posing as a message from Post Express Service.

So be careful, do not click on links or image included, no need to open it, delete it immediately

Plutonium Detected in the Soil Near Fukushima Reactor

.
0 comments

Tokyo Electric Power Co. (Tepco), the operator of the Fukushima reactors, said that plutonium has been detected in soil at five locations at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, Monday. The level of plutonium detected is ''not significant.'' The dose is not threaten human health. Source of the leak of plutonium is still mysterious and still being investigated by the Agency.

Discovery of plutonium indicates specific damage in reactor fuel rods. Plutonium is a radioactive substance which more toxic than iodine 131 and cesium or other radioactive substances.

Meanwhile, Tepco said that radiation levels found in ditch water outside the plant number 2 has passed the 1000 millisievert per hour (high level). Contaminated water is likely comes from the reactor core, where the fuel rods material have melted partially. TEPCO also said that the concentration of radioactive substances in a pool at the reactor's basement No. 2 was 100,000 times higher than normal for water in a reactor core. They added that the radiation level in the air in the trench stood at 100 to 300 millisieverts.

In addition, people could suffer a decrease in the number of lymphocytes -white blood cell type- in 30 minutes only, and by remaining in such conditions for just four hours, half could die within 30 days all conditions at 1.000 millisieverts per hour of radiation level.

Let's take a part in 'Earth Hour'

. Saturday, March 26, 2011
2 comments


The earth we live in is getting old and weak. need awareness and cooperation to keep our earth remains sustainable. No matter how small our efforts if done continuously will be very meaningful. One is to follow the activities called 'Earth Hour' on Saturday 26th March 2011 at 8:30 - 9.30 PM (local time).

Earth Hour is a global activity organized by the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature, also known as World Wildlife Fund) and is held on the last Saturday in March every year which ask for homes and offices to turn off lights and electrical appliances (which are not necessary) during one hour to raise awareness on the need for action on climate change.



Much electrical energy generated from the reactor that can produce a lot of air pollution. By turning off lights and appliances for one hour, then more energy can be saved pollution can also be pressed. Turn off electricity for one hour only a first step, we must make saving electricity as a way of life, the pattern of life in the future.

Earth Hour campaign is supported by the victory secret model Miranda Kerr, Italian football player Francesco Totti, Desmod Tutu, UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon. And world celebs such as Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman, Yoko Ono, Giselle Bundchen to Chris Martin is also the ambassador for this campaign.

0 comments

Many people living in the Kanto had worried after seeing a yellow rain on Wednesday. Kanto is a region near Tokyo. Residents worried yellowish color caused by the effects of radiation originating from the damaged nuclear power plant located 220 kilometers north east of Tokyo. Japan Meteorological Agency received many reports of a yellowish residue contained on roofs and anywhere after the rain.

According to the Ministry of Environment, air-borne pollen in large quantities were seen in the Kanto region. Pollen fell along with the rain. Health official at the Tokyo metropolitan gov said there is possibility that the rain contained radioactive material but in a level that does not endanger human health.

Japan is currently in a nuclear emergency conditions after a nuclear power plant in Fukushima damaged by an earthquake and tsunami on 11 March. All residents within a radius of 20 kilometers from the Fukushima nuclear power plant was evacuated. A variety of products in the region, such as milk and vegetables are exposed to radiation.

The Japanese government yesterday announced the tap water in Tokyo has reached a worrying level. Although radiation levels could change, but they ask for tap water is not drunk by children, also to make milk infants under 1 year.

Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant Situation is Still Very Difficult

. Wednesday, March 23, 2011
1 comments



Residents who live around the Fukushima nuclear power plant seems to stay longer in shelters after the earthquake and tsunami on March 11 and then damaged the nuclear power plant. The nuclear crisis is not yet clear when it will end.

Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, Japan, yesterday was still in an unstable condition. Even there was reported radioactive steam out of the reactor numbers 1,2 and 3 when technicians tried to reduce pressure inside the reactor vessel.

Hazardous substances, suspected leaked from a container of damaged nuclear fuel in reactors 1,3 and 4. The three reactors was damaged by fire due to explosion of hydrogen released by the reactor itself.

However, the recovery of access to external electric power and decreasing the temperature in the reservoir of fuel, did show the condition of power began to improve. But overall, the reactor has not been stable and can leak more radiation.

That's why power plant operators, Tokyo Electric Power Co.., ordered the engineers back to work, after being evacuated Monday, and expect electrical control room of reactor No. 2 can be recovered in the afternoon. If successful, the technician can be more intensive work to overcome the nuclear crisis. Even if the white smoke, the possibility of steam, it was found out from reactor number 2 and 3 Monday, the operator decided not to stop work to restore electricity as long as radiation level does not increased substantially at the location.

Japan's Nuclear Crisis

. Monday, March 21, 2011
0 comments

Japan has raised the level of crisis in the Fukushima nuclear power plant to level 5 from the previous level 4 on an international scale 7. This status is similar to the nuclear crisis that hit the Three Mile Island, United States, 1979. But it is still under the level of nuclear accident of Chernobyl, Ukraine, 1986.

Spinach, milk and agricultural products in the area near Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant contaminated with nuclear radiation over the safe limit. Yukio Edano -Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary- said based on checks, the milk in the area of Fukushima and spinach grown in Ibaraki, radiation levels exceeded the limit. However Edano said radiation levels are not dangerous to human health and consumers were asked calmly.

Japan's nuclear crisis has spread fear, not only for Japanese residents, but also citizens of the nearest countries. They are afraid with the nuclear radiation from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. The excessive fear, considering distance is so far from the center of the reactor. Residents stormed the shop and supermarket to buy iodized salt, or go to pharmacy and drug store to buy iodine pills. Salt and iodine pills believed to ward off nuclear radiation.

Iodine tablets can reduce the risk of thyroid cancer caused by exposure to nuclear radiation, but also could pose a risk to users, namely the emergence of allergic reactions and can be problematic in the thyroid gland.

Radiation Dose Limits

.
0 comments

Actually, radiation is not only come from nuclear, but also from our environment. Radiation originating from natural is often called the background cosmos. Apart from nature, radiation can also come from medical treatment such as CT scans, X-rays, and so forth.

Outside the background radiation, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has made a provision of radiation dose limit that can be received in a year. Japan has a limit of 10 miliSievert radiation dose (mSv) per year, while in Indonesia set 1 mSv for the general public within a year. If for reactor workers, radiation dose of 20 mSv is set for 5 years, but must not exceed 50 mSv in a year.

Based on it, if you're in Japan now, you can perform a mathematical calculation. Like this, radiation on March 15, 2011 in Miyagi, Japan, for example, 0.18 mSv. So to achieve the recommended limits, there is still need 2600 days. Anyone who is in the environment with the risk of radiation exposure required to calculate the dose of radiation. If excessive radiation dose, complaints such as nausea, headache, diarrhea, and fever usually be felt. If very large dose, its impact is death.

Supermoon

. Sunday, March 20, 2011
0 comments


Super moon rare moments coming soon. For those of you who want to enjoy a warm shower moonlight take the time to go out right At 19:10 GMT. The Moon is really at the point closest to Earth (perigee). Approximately one hour a month is the period when the moon reaches full phase peak. A combination like this (perigee and full moon) to produce a phenomenon called supermoon and 18 years can only occur once.

Called supermoon because the moon will be visible at night seven percent larger than ordinary full moon, or 14 percent bigger than the full moon when the moon in a position farthest to the earth. Super moon will light brighter 30 percent than of the full moon usually. Conditions that allow observers to enjoy the surface of moon and Saturn's as well as nearby.

Crater moon will be seen more clearly. It would be better to enjoy supermoon with a telescope, but using a telescope which diameter is too big will only make the eyes glare. I would suggest, 10-20 cm diameter telescope, binoculars, or just the naked eye if the sky bright and low light pollution.

Japan Self-Defense Forces helicopters dropped water on the troubled No. 3 reactor of the Fukushima nuclear power plant on Thursday morning as it is feared the reactor may have released radioactive steam due to damage to its containment vessel.

Japan should quickly to prevent the disaster after fire swept a Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant , Wednesday. Fire in Japan's nuclear power plant raises threat of nuclear radiation. The incident was brought low radiation to Tokyo to push a number of people leaving the capital city and raised fears of nuclear crisis.


Tokyo police, meanwhile, plan to use a water cannon truck to attempt to cool a spent fuel rod pool in a bid to contain the disaster at the troubled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power station in Japan. In the unprecedented move, they aim to cool the possibly overheating pool of the No. 4 reactor to prevent the discharge of highly-concentrated radioactive materials.
The building housing the No. 4 reactor suffered what appeared to be a hydrogen explosion early Tuesday following the devastating earthquake and tsunami last week. A fire also broke out Wednesday there.

In the face of the extraordinary nuclear crisis, the focus is now on how to cool the possibly overheating pools that store spent nuclear fuel rods at the No. 4 as well as No. 3 reactors.

Unless the spent fuel rods are cooled down, they could deteriorate and emit radioactive materials.
A small group of technicians, which challenged the radiation and fire, became the only group of people who remaining in the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Reactor.

Fear of Japanese nuclear reactor leaks have made consumers in the west coast of the United States and Canada scramble to get an antidote to radiation. But local health authorities Tuesday said fear was groundless. Authorities warned that excessive use of potassium iodide to protect against cancer will cause other medical problems for them.

Potassium iodide is a common form of salt. These substances can protect the thyroid gland from radiation and cancer caused by radioactive iodine. Potassium iodide meets the gland with non-radioactive iodine, reducing the absorption of dangerous radioactive iodine.

Japan has distributed the drug supply in the troubled area of Fukushima reactor, where the authorities are struggling to prevent the release of radiation from the reactor was damaged by the deadly earthquake on the 9 magnitude last week.

Doughnut Phenomenon on the Sky

0 comments


The phenomenon of doughnut-shaped appearance in the sky of Belgium was arrested by the weather radar recently. Previously, the same phenomenon has also been arrested in Australia in 2010.

Doughnut on the sky? What's doughnut?

Some people had expected it a UFO. But do not be afraid, because the Doughnut Phenomenon is common natural phenomenon caused by melting snow in the atmosphere. Marc Dantonio, photos and videos analysts from the Mutual UFO Network, said that the phenomenon is called a melting circle. This occurs in a wide area thus forming a ring-shaped anomaly.

When capturing the image of melting snow, the radar could not capture an area located just above the antenna, called a "cone of silence". As a result, created a similar image of a doughnut with the middle that seemed hollow. Radar can only catch the outside of the region which can be reached, which is the outside of the doughnut. Meanwhile, the inside depending on the angle of the radar pointing to the sky.

Doughnut phenomenon is only one of many phenomena due to magic formula which can be captured by radar. According to Dantonio, this phenomenon should not be equalized with a UFO, but it should be named IRA (Identifiable Radar Anomalies). Doughnut phenomenon can be observed only on the weather radar screen. Doughnut looks big on screen because the radar has a range which good size. If the radar is in the mountains, doughnut may appear larger, with larger holes as well.

Doughnut space imagery is only visible in a moment on the radar screen. This caused the radar only emit a signal every seven seconds each hour.
