ఒక పొరపాటుకు యుగములు పొగిలేవు
ఊహల ఉయ్యాలవే మనసా నువ్వు తెగిన పతంగానివే
Few minutes back i got a msg from incomtax dept that i have refund of 30K. The From address was: firstname.lastname@example.org. At first i was happy to see refund.. but then got doubt.. why would they do? atleast I cant believe that our govt really does work proactively. I got doubt and checked the further details on my gmail; checked the via link. Now I understood its fraud site.
i clicked onthe link provided on the email.. it displayed options from where took me to my standard charted bank.
Look at the address bar. its from some private ip. WOW! what an idea to do phishing! So they are actually proxying my bank details via their servers. If i enter my onlink bank details.. they intercept the data and get hold of my online details.
A novice user would definitely fall into the trap; so i wanted to alert pple on it. I went to my gmail and marked the mail as phishing.
hope this helps somebody…
I invest in UTI MF. Today i forgot my password and tried with forgot password on the website… it sent me my password in clear text. This shows that they might have stored the pwd in clear text/ encrypted form in the back end which are both wrong.. remember few days back Microsoft online store was hacked and the userid and pwd of millions of users was compromised..
It was my sis marrage the last weekend and i was on leave for a total of 5 days. The days were hectic, strainous and i remember sleeping with a strained back to the end of the day; esp the last two days. We used to sleep at night 12:30 and get up by 3:00 am. I hardly had any sleep and was feeling the tiredness.
At marrage we represent the brides side. In india its like this; almost 90% of the preparations/ arrangements are to be done by the bride side people and so so much of work. To the end of the day we used to take hard comments from people for some lapse in the arraignments. We never mided.. we hardly had any time to mind them.. we were just buldozing… and racing with time. It was more like suspense thriller for us.. lt was like the last ball between india and pakistan match which decides who will win!
Finally things settled; the hard time went by; and we were finally at home and we were ruminating the history; how things changed.. what will happen next.. how we failed.. what we should have had done… bla bla bla. It was a refreshing experience.
It was the next day; and I had to prepare for the office, but i could feel the freshness in me; the feeling “let it happen what every may happen. I will see it in the situation. Nothing to worry. Let time decide whats next… etc etc etc…”. what a refreshing thought! how nice! but what actually brought this difference? I realized its the break from the work.. the complete break.. i was in my own world.. fully occupied… completely outside office world.. Now i realize.. may be i need frequent breaks.. which can keep me occupied.. take me away from office… I liked the feeling.. and i think i will cherish it..
lets see how it goes.. what new experiences i will have now? these days i m googling for google groups which are on travel..
till further post.. Adios..
