Hacker Alert

Found out today that Flash Player has been hacked. DO NOT watch any on-line flash movies (.flv), which is basically all videos you'll find anywhere on-line. Hackers have breached the movie player and if they access your computer, they will change your passwords and hold them ransom. An updated version of flash player should be available for download 2/5/15, but make sure it covers this current issue when you download the upgrade.

Re: Hacker Alert

Its been going around for a while -

You click on a video link and a web box shows up telling you need an upgrade to your Adobe flash. Seems legit but its not. You have to read the fine print. If you want to upgrade your Adobe, go to the Adobe web site.

Re: Hacker Alert

I have gotten those messages often. I never click on such unsolicited warnings, be it from Flash Player or aledgedly from my bank. If something needs updating, go directly to their website. Don't go to secondary download outfits either, as you are likely to get other unsolicited garbage along with the legit downloaded program.

I think you have a bittorrent client... When you have peer to peer applications like bittorrent, they send out your IP address and the port number which was used for the client so that you can send and recieve data.  then they came up with this thing called DHT which allowed people to share data without needing a server. If your address ended up on the DHT list, then the clients will check your IP on that port every so often to see if you're sharing files. Zone alarm has picked it up since your client isn't running.

I remember this virus perfectly, all computers in our office have been hacked. No one could work. We could not write a paper for our customers, it was terrible.

More important than mathematics

The study covered 91 countries with different per capita incomes and is based on the analysis of several sources: PISA tests, UNESCO, World Bank, etc. It revealed serious gaps in knowledge and skills of high school students. Russian children, like in many other countries, do not get the education that will allow them to succeed in the future, the researchers warn. On the development of soft skills, or flexible skills, the decisive impact of the school and university. And the competition for the period of the 2020s. according to these indicators, we are already losing, say the researchers.

They identified 16 types of knowledge and skills that help to make a career in the 21st century. In the new economy, the employees will need not so much elementary knowledge - mathematics, natural sciences or languages, the main are critical thinking and the ability to solve problems that do not have the only correct answer, teamwork skills, curiosity, initiative, communication and negotiation, perseverance.

Because of the changes in the labor market, it became important that all employees have these skills, and not only some, as required earlier, says Vladislav Butenko, senior partner and managing director of BCG. Without mastering them, people will not be able to compete for jobs. And to develop them, as well as to learn English, it is necessary from early childhood, he adds.
