Sorry I haven't been that active on the blog lately. I've been preoccupied with other things at work. Namely I get to rebuild my company's network from the ground up which is something not many admins get to do. I mean, you come into a company and inherit someone elses network, and most of the time the way they did things is not how you would have done it. Sometimes it's nice to be able to start over, and do it the way you feel it should be done.Anyway, I thought I would post something for you, and these infographics are handy that way.

How To Stop China-Based Domain Name Theft
2011-11-10 03:58:00
By Rachel Buker Rachel is an attorney at Harris & Moure whose practice focuses mostly on intellectual property.  Trademark infringement with respect to domain names is a very common problem, particularly for those who do business with China or even just manufacture their product there. It is unsurprising that many in China are quick to register domain names similar to those of the foreign companies they see. We frequently see the following sorts of domain name thefts, oftentimes by Chinese companies seeking to hone in on a well-known brand name: Domain names that intentionally contain a common typo of a known trademark. Domain names that take a known trademark and attach a generic word like “outlet” or a word descriptive of the product, such as “shoes."  Domain names that are exactly the same as a known trademark’s domain name, but with a different extension.  For example,, instead of   Companies confronted wi...

Zomata Accuses Burrp of Data Theft. Network 18 In A Tight Spot
2011-09-27 13:35:00
Zomato has accused Burrp for blatantly copying their website data dealing with restaurant listings. Burrp has been unable to defend itself since it has been revealed that Burrp has not only copied restaurant data but also the phone numbers. This evidence has put Burrp in a difficult situation. Zomato had taken up a different business model where they were publishing their own business phone number along with a few restaurant listings. The restaurants had no knowledge of this. Zomato says, “These numbers are our numbers, the restaurant staff doesn’t know about this and these numbers have no business showing up on some other website (even our API does not serve these numbers). Also, we have our own proprietary GPS systems which help us collect very very accurate (within 2 meters) GPS coordinates for restaurants listed on Zomato. So when these coordinates, until the 5th decimal point show up on some other website, we have a problem.” However when they found some instance...

Google+ Tackles Identity Theft By Issuing Verification Badges
2011-08-24 08:19:00
Google+, the much touted Facebook Killer has decided to tackle the issue of Identity Theft on its network. Recently, they decided to crack down on users using a Pseudonym or nicknames on their page.

Now in a move similar to Twitter’s Verified Accounts, Google+ has introduced Verification Badges. WATBlog’s Rajiv Dingra was quoted in an Afaqs article saying,”This would make sure people on Google+ are genuine and would try and stop fake accounts,” Here is an example of a Verified Google+ account [Image Courtsey:]- Google employee Wen-Ai Yu wrote, ”Not sure whether Dolly Parton is actually a particular Dolly Parton?

War on the Elderly ! - Rense & Marti Oakley – Guardianship – Theft,
2011-07-07 16:09:00
It happens everyday in every state. Elderly or disabled individuals are kidnapped under the guise of “guardianship” by predatory guardians who then begin bleeding off the estate.Corrupt probate judges, attorney’s, social agency workers, nursing home operators, doctors and the ever present predatory guardian, all begin hammering away at the vicitms assets until nothing is left. The family is restrained from visitation while hearsay charges are levied against them by the predators. No evidence required.If you think this can’t happen to you, think again. Congress is well aware of this crime. Your state agencies, police departments, state attorney’s general, the FBI, the DoJ …all are fully informed and yet refuse to do anything to stop this theft and looting while holding an elderly or disabled victim hostage.There is money to be made by converting a human being to chattel property!And if a victim escapes the prison of the nursing home?

War as Theft by Evan Palmer
2011-05-29 20:46:00
It is instructive and eye-opening to view war as theft. That is, to consider that theft is its main purpose. War being more than a few armed skirmishes but not necessarily on a massive scale. As Gwyn Dyer pointed out in his book "War", long-duration low-intensity attacks can tally up to substantial losses over long spans of time like 10-20+ years. In some cases, almost permanent war. The acquisitive side of war manifests itself in things done to avoid it like the paying of tribute or taxes or the giving of gifts or hostages or slaves or goods. It can appear as the right of passage through territory or across a river or over a mountain pass. It might seem like less than what a war victory might deliver but it would be quicker and cheaper than war and given the potential destruction of goods and people in a serious war, it's likely that there would be more wealth and property to apportion as well.So, if we see or pursue policies that impoverish our neighbours, we should also see that...
Byron Fry: there's theoretically no stopping the theft of my music
2011-05-24 23:44:00
Byron Fry  In my mind, once I put up a complete song ANYWHERE on the 'net, I've lost control over it, period. Thanks to piracy, there's theoretically no stopping the theft of my music until it reaches every human, right? So what I did with "Combustible" is make it a gimme album; I put it up on internet streaming radio stations like where it gets played and gets the word out and I basically don't make money. Some internet stations pay royalties but they're miniscule. It's standard practice to make your tunes available to others as feeds (not as downloads) so they can share and help you get the word out about your project. What all this amounts to is chum in the water, and I haven't put anything from my next album ("Explosive") up other than as excerpt. When I release that album, it'll be to the mailing list I've collected through whoring out Combustible, and at least the first round will be paid purchases. After a year or two...

News: fight against online theft.
2010-09-23 18:19:00
Last June I sent an e-mail urging the music community to become more engaged in the fight against online theft.  The result -- over 16,000 e-mails imploring Congress to pass aggressive laws to combat piracy.It looks like Washington heard our call.  A bipartisan group of Senators has introduced legislation that would give the Justice Department an expedited process for cracking down on rogue websites that are dedicated to making unauthorized copies of music available to internet users around the world.  The Justice Department would target the most egregious pirate websites, go to a federal court with the evidence, and then seize the domain name.  Once a site has been seized, the Court would issue an order to intermediaries -- such as ISPs, payment processors, Internet registries and registrars, advertisers, etc. -- prohibiting them from doing business with such rogue sites. CNET called S. 3804, ?one of the most ambitious attempts yet from the U.S. government ...
Price To Pay For Social Networking – Identity Theft
2010-08-19 09:19:00
Social networking is a craze for everyone in the country. These days, when you meet someone new, usually the first question is, ” Are you on Facebook / Twitter?” (Orkut might be a part of the question only if your new acquaintances are unfamiliar with social networking faux pas) LinkedIn is another social networking website which may get a mention if the meeting is on a professional front. Some of us might deny it, but such websites have become an important part of our lives for the sole reason of networking; be it with friends, family, or people in your field of work. But what is the price we are paying for putting all our information on these websites? The answer to the question above is identity theft. The most recent victim was Nobel prize winning economist Amartya Sen. Mr. Sen is just one more in the long list of celebrities and high-profile individuals in India who have had to face identity theft on social networking websites.

2010-01-13 09:43:00
Google has posted an elaborate blog post on its official blog titled ‘A new approach to China‘.
