30 Years of “SPAM”

Last May 3, 2008 marked the 30th years for spam. No not the popular canned staple food but those unsolicited email in our inboxes. Thirty years ago, the phenomenon that was to grow exponentially and become known as spam was born. But despite three decades to learn our lessons, it seems many people still get fooled in to buying products sent to their email inboxes without request.

According to Yahoo News, on May 3rd 1978, a marketer for DEC, a now defunct U.S.computer company, sent out a message to 400 email addresses. The spam, though it wasn’t known as spam then.

The industry which has grown up around the practice has changed somewhat since the 1970s, when the Internet was still the US government-run Arpanet. Which the sender in 1978 had to input each of those 400 email address individually and by hand, whereas now, the whole operation is handled remotely via bot nets.

The practice became known as spam in the 1980s, after the famous Monty Python sketch where a cafe sells Spam meat with everything. This leads a group of invading Vikings to sing the Spam song, which includes the repeating of the word Spam over and over again.

Get Yourself A Flock Browser

Flock Browser

Flock Browser Powered by Mozilla

More than 800 developers along with thousands of testers, designers, writers, and a global community of contributors make the Mozilla Application Framework the best in the world. This award-winning engine has been applauded for its safety, performance, and customizability. Flock not only utilizes, but also passionately contributes to and supports the technology that Mozilla has created to power the Firefox browser.
Mozilla Heritage

Flock and Mozilla share both source code and a mission to preserve choice and innovation on the Internet. In 1994 Netscape introduced a web browser that ushered in a new era of the Internet as a mass medium. The Mozilla Project traces its roots to Netscape where the open source project was formed in February 1998. Exactly one decade later, Netscape was discontinued. From the DNA of the original web browser, two exceptional, world-class web browsers have been created: Firefox and Flock. And Netscape has recommended each as the best new browser alternatives available anywhere.

Security Focus SQL Injection Bogus

Since people are asking, this so-called alert on Security Focus appears to be completely false and has no information that an attacker or the WordPress developers could use. It is completely content-free, except for making claims that every version of WP since 2.0 is vulnerable.

Online, apparently, it’s fine for someone to run into a crowded theatre and yell “fire” and the less basis there is in fact the more people link to them. It’s not uncommon to see crying-wolf reports like the above several times in a week, and a big part of what the WP security team is sifting through things to see what’s valid or not.

A valid security report looks like this, it usually includes sample code and a detailed description of the problem. The WP security team was notified of the KSES problem and it was fixed in 2.5. You can impress your friends by saying whether a security report is valid or not, so it’s a good critical facility to pick up.

The Internet Wayback Machine

Alexa Internet, in cooperation with the Internet Archive, has designed a three dimensional index that allows browsing of web documents over multiple time periods, and turned this unique feature into the Wayback Machine.

“The original idea for the Internet Archive Wayback Machine began in 1996, when the Internet Archive first began archiving the web. Now, five years later, with over 100 terabytes and a dozen web crawls completed, the Internet Archive has made the Internet Archive Wayback Machine available to the public. The Internet Archive has relied on donations of web crawls, technology, and expertise from Alexa Internet and others. The Internet Archive Wayback Machine is owned and operated by the Internet Archive.”
