Here’s a funny prank by the folks at Intel.
This video was designed to highlight latest Intel Core processors which allow the new generation of laptop computers to offer up to 50 per cent more battery life. For some models in stores now, this can mean more than 10 hours of active battery life on a single charge.
2013 is coming to an end. This is the time when everyone starts making their predictions for 2014. I’ll be doing my tech predictions soon so keep a lookout.
The folks at Symantec just send me their Security Predictions for 2014. Pretty interesting predictions.
I totally agree with #4. The scammers are going to take advantage of our trust in our mobile phone. We will most likely see lots of mobile phone based attack. And they are not going to do it with malware. They will be using methods to con and scam users. So remember to be always on alert.
Two days after spotting the fake Ministry of Manpower website, the Ministry issued another statement saying that there is another fake website.
The fake website is at http://www.movgov.sg. And they call themselves the Ministry of Workpermit. Haha.
The fake website is trying to imitate MOM’s employment practices page.
Interestingly, the domain name of the fake website was registered on 16 May 2013. Which means the site might have been there for couple of months.
I still don’t understand why SGNIC and IDA allowed people to register a .SG domain ending with ‘gov”. There should be additional checks before anyone can get a domain ending with “gov”.
LG announced a curved-screen smartphone, the LG G Flex recently. But perhaps the biggest feature of the phone is not the curved screen. The phone was coated with a “self-healing” material.
It is not scratch resistant. It is “self healing” like Wolverine from X-Men. The special material on the back of the phone allows it to recover from light scratches within minutes. Check out the video.
Very impressive. Great for those people who don’t like phone covers. No news on when the LG G Flex is coming to Singapore yet.
The Ministry of Manpower just issued a statement saying that there is a website that looks exact like the official MOM website. The Ministry have lodged a case with the Police and investigations are ongoing.
This is the real Ministry of Manpower website.
This is the fake Ministry of Manpower website.
Can’t really tell the difference. Even the URL is very similar. The real MOM website URL is www.mom.gov.sg. The fake MOM website URL is www.momgov.sg. Just missing one dot.
It is not sure how long the duplicate site has been active. The momgov.sg domain was registered on 11 Nov. The person behind this website could easily use it for phishing. If you have entered your SingPass credentials on the fake website, please change your password immediately. In fact, if you have entered your SingPass credentials on Ministry of Manpower website anytime between 11 November 2013 till now, I would suggest you change your SingPass password just in case.
Why did SGNIC allow someone to register the domain momgov.sg? Isn’t there a check somewhere that prevent people from registering a .sg URL ending with “gov”? What is SGNIC and IDA doing?
Update: momgov.sg has been deleted.
Update 2: Another fake Ministry of Manpower website spotted.
