Plebiscite Day for Quezon


Today is the day to cast the YES or NO vote to the Quezon Del Sur and Quezon Del Norte initiative. I heard  radio reports that the precints in the province opened at 7am.  It is speculated that there will be a low turnout of voters this time because of the lack of information campaign related this plebiscite. It is also expected that the results will be known later today (or early Sunday), although because of the TRO issued by the SC, these results will not be proclaimed by Comelec . The Philippine National Police in the province is placed on heightened alert as a proactive move to prevent possible violence related to the plebiscite.

I will update this blog as soon as I significant updates on this topic. Previous post related this topic here.

IE7 Zero-Day Exploit: JS_DLOAD.MD

Trend Micro reported that there is new malware called JS_DLOAD.MD found in the wild that exploits a vulnerability of Internet Explorer 7(IE7) browser. The report mentioned that the malicious file was uploaded to several websites (albeit unknowingly) and if downloaded by users will then download several other malware including some Trojan Spyware that steals account information for popular online games (Lineage and Legend of Mir) and a rootkit. More information can be found on their malware blog.

Last week I posted some info on malicious Firefox in this blog also and this week its IE7’s turn 🙂  Let’s hope that MS patch this bug soon. Maybe next week it will be Apple/Mac’s turn 🙂
