Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez said Saturday that US President George W. Bush may be seeking to kill him for calling him “the devil” at the United Nations.

“Some worried friends over there have called me (to say) that because I called him the devil they have condemned me to death,” Chavez said without elaborating further on his sources.

“But they won’t kill me. I have faith in life,” he said. “I know how to take care of myself and the Lord will protect me and you all will protect me,” he told a cheering crowd in eastern Venezuela where he was visiting a group of state-funded agricultural cooperatives.

Chavez’s incendiary remarks Wednesday against Bush have elicited a sharp backlash.

Web users worried about privacy can now use a modified version of Firefox that lets them browse the net anonymously.

The Torpark browser has been created by a hacking group and uses technology backed by digital rights group the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

Torpark uses its own network of net routers to anonymise the traffic people generate when they browse the web.

The browser can be put on a flash memory stick so users can turn any PC into an anonymous terminal.

Hide and seek

The Torpark tool has been created by Hacktivismo – an international coalition of hackers, human rights workers, lawyers and artists.

Torpark uses the Tor network of internet routers set up by the Electronic Frontier Foundation that already has tens of thousands of regular users.

Whenever any computer connects to the net it freely shares information about the address it is using. This is so any data it requests is sent back to the right place.

The Tor network tries to stop this information being shared in two ways. First, it encrypts traffic between a computer and the Tor network of routers – this makes it much harder to spy on the traffic and pinpoint who is doing what.

Second, the Tor network regularly changes the net address that someone appears to be browsing from – again this frustrates any attempt to pin a particular browsing session on any individual.

“We live in a time where acquisition technologies are cherry picking and collating every aspect of our online lives,” said Oxblood Ruffin, one of the founders of Hacktivismo, in a statement announcing Torpark.

Mr Ruffin was at pains to point out that the anonymising abilities of Torpark had its limitations. Data travelling between the websites people look at and the Tor network is unencrypted and it could be possible to identify users if they visit sites that do not encrypt login sessions.

The programs making up the free Torpark download are small enough to install on a USB flash memory stick allowing people to take the anonymising browser with them. Before now it has been possible to configure Firefox to use Tor and its associated identity hiding programs but Torpark puts all these elements in one package.

Hacktivisimo said that anyone using Torpark might see a slight reduction in their browsing speed as the package of programs connect to the Tor network and scramble traffic.

The Torpark browser includes an clickable icon that lets people switch between anonymous and ordinary browsing.

It may also cause frustration as the regular change of net address may make some sites think that a new user is visiting and ask once more for login details.

A Sudanese man has been forced to take a goat as his “wife”, after he was caught having sex with the animal. The goat’s owner, Mr Alifi, said he surprised the man with his goat and took him to a council of elders.

They ordered the man, Mr Tombe, to pay a dowry of 15,000 Sudanese dinars ($50) to Mr Alifi.

“We have given him the goat, and as far as we know they are still together,” Mr Alifi said.

Mr Alifi, Hai Malakal in Upper Nile State, told the Juba Post newspaper that he heard a loud noise around midnight on 13 February and immediately rushed outside to find Mr Tombe with his goat.

“When I asked him: ‘What are you doing there?’, he fell off the back of the goat, so I captured and tied him up”.

Mr Alifi then called elders to decide how to deal with the case.

“They said I should not take him to the police, but rather let him pay a dowry for my goat because he used it as his wife,” Mr Alifi told the newspaper.

Politics is so rotten. Its even questioning our judiciary system.

The Breaking news is that Hussain Md.Ershad [well known as an autocrat] is released from another corruption case. Just rewind the scenes. Ershad made a meeting with BNP high officials and they indicated a successful one after meeting.

After then suddenly things are changing radically. Hes released from his famous “janata tower” corruption case quickly. Nation raised their voice of doubt about that. Govt. denied. After that another one.

Seems to me , judiciary system is nothing but a show off. If you can release any one whenever you want or put some wrong person in condemn cell for 2 years, then its not illogical  to think so.

well, All that happens are wanted by “master of puppet” . So Ershad is safe, I cant say that. Anytime he breaks the rule , new corruption cases will be charged.

So , Bravo Weird politics , Heil master of puppets.

A new worm, or should I say worms as variants have been released, exploits a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows just like the msblast.a worm.
This worm has been dubbed Cuebot by Anti-Virus vendors.

After infection the worm will turn off security controls in the Windows firewall and open a
backdoor that will allow a remote attacker to have control over the machine.
Last week Microsoft released a patch for the Windows server flaw (MS06-040) exploited by Cuebot.
The Department of Home Land Security in the US last week released a warning of the
potential danger of the vulnerability.

It would seem that this worm, is actually just an IRC bot that spreads through exploit this
new vulnerability. Although it has been dubbed a worm by some virus Anti-Virus firms.

A link on information relating to the vulnerability can be found here:


An analysis of the worm dubbed WORM_IRCBOT.JL by Trend Micro can be found here:
