Shocking news about CTRL+C

Hi ,

Clipboard Hack Problem - Shocking news about CTRL+C


Ctrl+C may be the most important work we do everyday. But it's not a very safe thing to do. Read on to know why. What happens when you press Ctrl+C while you are online. We do copy various data by Ctrl + C for pasting elsewhere. This copied data is stored in clipboard and is accessible from the net by a combination of Javascripts and ASP. This is called clipboard hack problem.

Just try this:

1. Copy any text by Ctrl + C
2. Click the Link:
http://www.sourcecodesworld.com/special/clipboard.asp
3. You will see the text you copied was accessed by this web page.

Surprised!
Do not keep sensitive data (like passwords, credit card numbers, PIN etc.) in the clipboard while surfing the web. It is extremely easy to extract the text stored in the clipboard to steal your sensitive information. Forward this information to as many friends as you can, to save them from online frauds!

It is true, text you last copied for pasting (copy & paste) can be stolen when you visit web sites using a combination of JavaScript and ASP (or PHP, or CGI) to write your possible sensitive data to a database on another server.

How Cipboard Hack is done?


The Clipboard hack is done by the following Source Code:

<script language="JavaScript">
var content = clipboardData.getData("Text");
alert(content);
</script>

How to safeguard yourself from Clipboard Hack Problem?


To avoid clipboard hack problem, do the following:
1. Go to
Tools->internet options->security.
2. Press custom level.

3. In the security settings, select disable under Allow paste operations via script. (Scripting sub heading)

Now the contents of your clipboard are safe.

Interestingly, this hack works only on internet explorer, and not on Mozilla Firefox browser. Please forward this article to as many friends as you can to make them aware of this issue with CTRL+C.

A must read - True Story

True Love Story - read carefully !! (don't miss it)................


Hi........... ....... Trust the fact???????? ??


This is a real story of a young college girl who
passed away last month
in Chandigarh . Her name was Priya... She was hit by a
truck.

She is working in a call centre. She has a boy friend
named Shankar .
Both of them are true lovers. They always hang on the
phone..You can
never see her without her handphone. In fact she
also changed her phone
from Airtel to Hutch, so both of them can be on the
same network, and save on the cost..

She spends half of the day talking with shankar .
Priya's family knows about their relationship. Shankar

is very close with Priya's family. (just imagine their
love) . Before she passed away shealways told her
friends "If I pass away please burn me with my
handphone" she also said the same thing to her
parents.

After her death, people cudnt carry her body, My friend was
there. A lot of
them tried to do so but still cant , everybody
including my friend, had tried to carry the body, the result
is still the same. Eventually, they called a person
who know to one of their neighbours, who can speak
with the soul of dead person, who is a friend of her
father.

He took a stick and started speaking to himself
slowly.

After a few minutes, he said "this girl misses
something here." Then her
friends told that person about her intentions to burn
her with her phone..
He then opened the grave box and place her phone and
sim card inside the
casket. After that they tried to carry the body. It
could be moved and
they carried it into the van easily.

All of us were shocked. Priya's parents did not inform

Shankar that
Priya had passed away.

After 2 weeks Shankar called Priya's mom.....

Shankar :...."Aunty, I'm coming home today. Cook
something nice for me.
Dont tell Priya that I'm coming home today, I wanna
surprise her."
Her mother replied..... "You come home first, I wanna
tell you
something very important."

After he came, they told him the truth about Priya.
Shankar thinks
that they were playing a fool. He was laughing and
said "dont try to
fool me - tell Priya to come out, I have a gift for
her. Please stop
this nonsense".

Then they show him the original death certificate to
him.
They gave him proof to make him believe. (Shankar
started to sweat) He
said... "Its not true. We spoke yesterday. She still
calls me.
Shankar was shaking.

Suddenly, Shankar's phone rang. "see this is from
Priya, see this...."
he showed the phone to priya's family. all of them
told him to
answer. he talked using the loudspeaker mode.

All of them heard his conversation.

Loud and clear, no cross lines, no humming.

It is the actual voice of Priya & there is no way
others could use her
sim card since it is nailed.


Inside the grave box they were so shocked and asked
for the same person's
(who can speak with the soul of death persons) help
again. He brought his
master to solve this matter.

He & his master


worked for 5 hours.

Then they discovered one thing which really shocked
them...


Hutch/vodafone has the best coverage.

Where ever you go, our network follows!!!


Don't shout at me I am also looking for the person who

has sent me this mail....so what you can do...you
should also forward this mail to all your nears and
dears...and enjoy...like I enjoyed.

Truth of who you are

 

 

Thought for the Day: Truth of who you are

 

What would it take to get you to do what you think you cannot do? What dream, what purpose, what goal will inspire you to engage with life more fully than you ever have?

What is so important to you that it will have you ignoring all the enticing distractions? What is so desirable and compelling that it will have you running out to embrace each new challenge?

 

Your life can be whatever you most sincerely and passionately want it to be. You are the living, growing, ever-evolving expression of the unique and wonderful you. You are here on this day, in this place, to live the richness. You are here right now to choose a particular flavor of richness that will energize your whole world through you.

 

Remember how good it can feel to be you, and let that feeling lead you to your most sincere purpose. As you focus awareness on that purpose, it spreads outward and illuminates life in its own beautiful way. What will it take to make you unstoppable? Nothing more, nothing less than the undeniable truth of who you are.

Thanks & Regards,

Siva…

Thought for the Day: Smile at life

No matter what else you have or do not have, you have the beautiful experience of life. No matter what may have happened before, or what might come next, you have this moment. Now is when you can make it count. Now is when you are connected with unbounded opportunities to make a positive difference.

Don't waste your time complaining about what you lack or worrying about what you might lose. Invest the best of what you have in this moment to create new value.

Smile at life, even when life has not smiled at you first. Be the first one to initiate goodness, and you'll be the first one to benefit from that goodness.

You are here, and there is nothing to fear. Count your blessings, and before you're finished counting you'll have even more.

Thanks & Regards,

Thought for the Day: Even so

Some days it may seem that your actions are not very effective. Even so, the best thing you can do is to keep doing all you can.

There will be times when you give all you have, and end up with nothing to show for it. Keep giving though, for the rewards are surely there, even if they are too profound for you to see just yet.

The disappointments may sometimes be so painful that you feel like giving up. Remember though, it is your caring that makes the disappointment possible, and that very same caring will pull you up and push you forward.

Though you may be reluctant to admit it, you can make any situation into a valuable, successful experience. The circumstances of this moment may not feel particularly desirable. Even so, there is a beautiful treasure that's yours to give, and yours to live in this very place, on this very day.

Thanks & Regards,

Thought for the Day: Laugh at every excuse

 

 

 

Thought for the Day: Laugh at every excuse

The easiest thing in the world is to come up with an excuse for not taking action. No matter what the situation, there's always an excuse that sounds perfectly reasonable and that can provide you with permission to do nothing.

Connect with a dream that is bigger than any excuse could possibly be. Grab hold of a dream that's so compelling it makes you laugh at every possible excuse.

If your goal is to do what you don't really want to do anyway, even the weakest excuse can stop you cold. If, however, your goal is tied to an authentic, personally meaningful dream, that's a completely different situation.

And that makes perfect sense. Because if it doesn't really matter to you anyway, there's not much point in spending your precious time on it.

Choose instead to live the beautiful, meaningful dreams that you truly desire to live. And no setback, no challenge, no excuse will have the power to even slow you down.

Thought for the Day: The limitless power of being

Give in to the beauty and completeness that is now. Let go of your complaints about what should or should not be, and embrace the fullness of what is.

Now, you are whole. Now, you are present and aware and entirely alive. Accept what is, without condition or judgment. Feel the limitless power of being.

In the perspective of now, excuses have no meaning. Worries make no sense and have no power, so they fall effortlessly away.

Feel the connection to all that is now. See that now there is nothing you need.

Let now be now and let yourself peacefully know it. Live the ever-unfolding miracle of what is, now.

Thought for the Day: Let today be that day

This is a day filled with possibilities. This is a day when you can get results.

Though conditions may not be perfect, still they are sufficient for you to move forward. Though circumstances may not be ideal, within those circumstances you can most certainly make progress.

What is it that you would like to achieve? What is it that you wish to change, improve upon, create, express or experience?

If you ever want it to happen, now is when you must do something about it. If it is your desire to see it come about, it is your responsibility to make the necessary effort.

Nothing ever gets accomplished someday by somebody. If it is to happen, it must be done on a specific day by a specific person.

Let today be that day. And let yourself be that person.

Thanks & Regards,

SiVa…

Exciting trek to Kumara Parvata

Last week my friend have visited Kumara parvata. It was superb.

Please read through the story about his experiences.

 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kumara_Parvata

 Exciting trek to Kumara Parvata

Location:
Located in the border of Kodagu and Dakshin Kannada district, Kumara Parvata peak stands tall at around about 5900ft tall, and is the second tallest peak in Karnataka. (The tallest peak is Mulyangiri). This peak is one of the most beautiful peaks in the whole of Western Ghats. And the trek to this place is usually two days with different start and end points. The peak stands almost in the middle of this trek. You can either start from "Bidalli" from "Somvarpet" (Coorg) side (in Kodagu district) or from "Subramanya" (South Kanara – in Dakshin Kannada district) side.

The trek is a total of 27 kms (approx). From Somvarpet side to the peak is approximately 13 kms and the trek from the peak to Kukke Subramanya is around 14 kms. The entire trek route is surrounded by green hills, and you can rarely take your eyes of the greenery and the thick forest trees. It is not a popular tourist spot and hence it is still in its pure form, without any pollution or artificial flavor added to it. This is also one of the challenging treks in Karnataka (both in terms of distance and some steepness). Many people prefer to start the trek from the Kukke Subramanya side and I am not sure if that makes it easy. But we guys started from Somvarpet side.

How to Reach:
There are KSRTC buses from Bangalore to Kukke Subramanya and Somvarpet. The closest railway station is Hassan. Somvarpet is around 5 hours by road from Bangalore and is close to Kushal Nagar (in Coorg). If you reach Somvarpet, you need to take a local transport (hire a jeep?) and reach Bidalli and start the trek from there. Somvarpet to Bidalli takes about 45 minutes to an hour.

We started the trekking from Kukke Subramanya to Bhattara-Mane, from Bhattara-Mane to Mantapa and Mantapa  to Bhattara-Mane. Took rest at Bhattara-Mane to night. The next morning we started from Bhattara-Mane to Kukke Subramanya.

Morning breakfast and start of trek:
By around 5.30 AM, we reached Kukke Subramanya. We got in to a hotel nearby and everyone was set for the trip by 7.00AM. There were lots to carry in terms of tent, sleeping bags, enough amount of food to last the full trek (which included oranges, apples, biscuits, dates etc.), water, etc. We shared the load. First we visited the famous Kukke Subramanya temple. After a quick breakfast, we started the trek at 8.30 AM. We made sure that we had our water bottles.

Entering the forests: Sunny, tasking and the Leeches:
The first 1 hour was trek through a road. It was more like a jeep trail and the heavy bags on our back made the steep trail look even steeper. It wasn’t long before we started having views of the amazing and never-ending landscapes. The initial part of this stretch witnessed quite a few local people in their fields. The sun was starting to pinch and we were just hoping the trek wouldn’t be so scorching once inside the forest areas and amidst trees.

People were getting exhausted pretty fast, though surrounded by trees, as the climb was steep and it was a bit humid too. The trail had a good number of leeches. For many, this was the first experience with leeches. Instead of walking, people were more concerned about a leech on one of their shoes and while they try to remove it, another couple more would stick to the other shoe. Though people were scared as to what the leeches would do, we carried spray to get rid of leeches. With some initial jumping and shouting, people learnt how to get rid of the leeches or how not-to-be-bothered about leeches.

A quick break on the Bhimas rock:
Around 10:30 AM, we took a break for around 15 minutes. Oranges and Apples helped re-energize. The place we took break was called Bhimas Rock, had a good number of leeches, and people were trying to remove their shoes and socks to make sure there aren’t leeches inside the shoes. We continued the trek and this time people started going at their own pace.

 
We got the first glimpse of the entire stretch of greenery and untouched forest cover around noon. There was a heavy rain while trekking in the middle. We are all trekking in the rain and good experience and sensed the good feel of trekking than that was at the start. A quick break and we were on the way and it was around 12:30, the trail came to an end and we reached bhattara-mane.

Reaching bhattara-mane:
The next place we wanted to break was bhattara-mane. People spent the next one hour going all around the place to enjoy the natural beauty around, a few had a chat with the two other groups from Bangalore who had camped there in the night. We had lunch around 1PM and took rest for while and started to Mantapa. On the way there is a forest department office where we need to register and pay the trekking fee Rs 115 per head and started to mantapa.

The last frontier:
After two hours of trek on the green and grassy hills which gave a very good view of the hills around from bhattara-mane, we saw this place, which I assume is Mantapa (where most trekkers camp). We took a break and had some apples and Oranges. We had a small photo shoot session. The other hills around with some dense forests and black clouds added to the scenic landscape.
 

The Mantapa:

This was the last point we reached in our trekking event. From mantapa there is a Mountain Peak which is 3kms and from there is a route to Somavarpet. As there is no time and its rainy too so we have decided not to go further from this point and enjoy the nature for a while here. After an hour we started to bhattara-mane.

Lightning strikes:
The lightning and thunder scared the hell out of almost everyone. The visibility was no more than a couple of meters. Atlast We reached to Bhattara-mane. We had tea and were chatting about the experiences we had from the morning.
 

Preparation for the night:
Around 7 PM, There was a heavy rain and we were sitting idle and discussing about how the people will reach to this place who left after us to mantapa. Our plan for the camp fire went in vain. The day we had rested at bhattara-mane was a festival day - Dasara, All the relatives of the Bhatt’s family gathered at Bhattara-mane place from Kukke and nearby towns. They were performing puja and we were watching their traditions and celebration of Dasara. At around 10PM they served us delicious Dinner with prasadam. We have went with our tents and others stuffs to stay in the forest but because of heavy rain the tents were not used and we went to bed at 11PM in Bhattara-mane home carridor.

Starting to Kukke from Bhattara-mane:

The next morning we woke up at around 6.30 AM and were setting all the stuffs to head back to Kukke.  We have taken a photo with the Bhatt’s family. We started at 8.00Am in the morning and reached Kukke at around 10.30 AM.

Thought for the Day: Live in gratitude

Fear of loss is what creates loss. Love of possibilities is what drives the fulfillment of those possibilities.

Instead of living in fear, live in gratitude. Fill your heart with love and thankfulness for all that you now have, so that there is no space left for fear.

Fill your mind with thoughts of the very best of what is possible for your world. Fill your spirit with a bright, sparkling vision of how good you know life can be.

Sure, the superficial things will come and go, so don't let those things define you. Instead, treasure the values that transcend every moment and every circumstance.

The genuine person inside is much more powerful than your ego that always feels so threatened. Live in gratitude and let the real, authentic, courageous person you are, always come shining through.

Thanks & Regards,

SiVa…

Thought for the Day: Purpose guiding the way

Discouragement comes from worrying about how. Inspiration comes from diving into the rich feeling of why.

When you attempt to work out every detail of every step in advance, it can be confusing and frustrating. To add some powerful clarity, settle on a good, meaningful first step and take it.

Getting started immediately is more important than debating with yourself about exactly how you'll finish. As long as your plans are at least one step ahead of your actions, and as long as you remember why, you'll be able to keep moving ahead.

Your experience in taking the early steps will enable you to more effectively determine and execute the later steps. And in every step along the way, always remember why you have chosen to move forward.

Stay in touch with why, and have faith that your sense of authentic purpose will lead you to the objective you have chosen. Step forward, and with your purpose guiding the way, find the path that takes you there.

Thanks & Regards,

Thought for the Day: The masterpiece

You are a highly accomplished artist, creating the ongoing masterpiece of your life. It is a singularly unique work of art that comes to life more richly and more fully in your every moment.

The masterpiece of your life is not the same as any other, and that is what gives it much of its beauty. It is a living, breathing, feeling work of art that is a distinctive and irreplaceable expression of wonder and joy.

As you feel the remarkable reality of yourself, always remember that you transcend every label that could ever be placed on you. Though there are many ways you have been, there are countless other ways that you can yet be.

Just as the darker areas of a painting and the lighter areas play off each other, so too do the varieties of your experience all add to the masterpiece of your life. With each new day, the masterpiece becomes more magnificent.

In this moment, work your art well, letting it flow from your authentic heart. Give your spirit cause to soar, and forever capture the unique beauty of now within the masterpiece that is your life.

Thanks & Regards,

SiVa…

Skype

Skype has released the next version of its Windows client which brings with it a Facebook integration and Group Video Conferencing. You can now log in with Facebook Connect in Skype to instant message, call, and text your Facebook friends. You can view the Facebook News Feed from within Skype, also post status messages, and synchronize your status messages with Skype's "mood message." The Group video calling feature supports 10-person conversations. Skype proposes to charge for group video chats, but for now users can try out the service for free. The latest version of Skype has a better overall call quality, and its new interface should make it more intuitive to use existing Skype features. Skype's integration with Facebook is seen as a win-win for both, Facebook users would get access to a robust voice and video calling platform, and Skype, currently with 560 million registered users, can expect a massive surge in new users from Facebook's 500 million users.
