A Cute Letter from a newly married girl to hermother


Dear mom,
Like every normal girl, I was excited about
marriage right from my childhood days.
I never
thought beyond the time that I would spend
happily with my prince charming. But today
when I am married, I realize that marriage is
not all roses. It’s not just about being with your
beloved and having a gala time. There is so
much more to it. It comes with its own share of
responsibilities, duties, sacrifices and
compromises. I can’t wake up anytime I want to.
I am expected to be up and ready before
everyone else in the family. I can’t laze around
in my pyjamas throughout the day. I am
expected to be presentable every time. I can’t
just go out anytime I want to. I am expected to
be sensitive to the needs of the family. I just
can’t hit the bed anytime I want to. I am
expected to be active and around the family. I
can’t expect to be treated like a princess but am
supposed to take care of everyone else in the
family. And then I think to myself, ‘why did I get
married at all?’ I was happier with you, mom.
Sometimes I think of coming back to you and
getting pampered again. I want to come home to
my favorite food cooked by you every evening
after a nice outing with friends. I want to sleep
on your laps like I have no worry in this world.
But then I suddenly realize, had you not got
married and made such sacrifices in your life, I
wouldn’t have had so many wonderful memories
to hang on to. And suddenly, the purpose of all
this becomes clear- to return the same comfort,
peace and happiness to my new family that I got
from you. And I am sure that as time would
pass, I would start loving this life equally as you
do. Thank you mom for all the sacrifices and
compromises you made. They give me the
strength to do the same. Love you.
It's an excellent letter for all daughters.

SIM card hack could affect millions worldwide


A United Nations group that advises nations on cyber-security plans to send out an alert about significant vulnerabilities in mobile phone technology that could potentially enable hackers to remotely attack at least half a billion phones.

The bug, discovered by German firm, allows hackers to remotely gain control of and also clone certain mobile SIM cards.

Hackers could use compromised SIMs to commit financial crimes or engage in electronic espionage, according to Berlin's Security Research Labs, which will describe the vulnerabilities at the Black Hat hacking conference that opens in Las Vegas on July 31.

The U.N.'s Geneva-based International Telecommunications Union, which has reviewed the research, described it as "hugely significant."

"These findings show us where we could be heading in terms of cyber-security risks," ITU Secretary General Hamadoun Touré told Reuters.

He said the agency would notify telecommunications regulators and other government agencies in nearly 200 countries about the potential threat and also reach out to hundreds of mobile companies, academics and other industry experts.

A spokeswoman for the GSMA, which represents nearly 800 mobile operators worldwide, said it also reviewed the research.

"We have been able to consider the implications and provide guidance to those network operators and SIM vendors that may be impacted," said GSMA spokeswoman Claire Cranton.

Nicole Smith, a spokeswoman for Gemalto NV, the world's biggest maker of SIM cards, said her company supported GSMA's response.

"Our policy is to refrain from commenting on details relating to our customers' operations," she said.

Becoming the SIM

Cracking SIM cards has long been the Holy Grail of hackers because the tiny devices are located in phones and allow operators to identify and authenticate subscribers as they use networks.

Karsten Nohl, the chief scientist who led the research team and will reveal the details at Black Hat, said the hacking only works on SIMs that use an old encryption technology known as DES.

Nohl said he conservatively estimates that at least 500 million phones are vulnerable to the attacks he will discuss at Black Hat. He added that the number could grow if other researchers start looking into the issue and find other ways to exploit the same class of vulnerabilities.

The ITU estimates some 6 billion mobile phones are in use worldwide. It plans to work with the industry to identify how to protect vulnerable devices from attack, Touré said.

Once a hacker copies a SIM, it can be used to make calls and send text messages impersonating the owner of the phone, said Nohl, who has a doctorate in computer engineering from the University of Virginia.

"We become the SIM card. We can do anything the normal phone users can do," Nohl said in a phone interview.

"If you have a MasterCard number or PayPal data on the phone, we get that too," if it is stored on the SIM, he said.

The newly identified attack method only grants access to data stored on the SIM, which means payment applications that store their secrets outside of the SIM card are not vulnerable to this particular hacking approach.

Yet Nohl warned that when data is stored outside of a SIM card it could fall victim to a large range of other already known vulnerabilities, which is what has prompted the industry to put payment information on SIMs in the first place.

iPhone, Android, BlackBerry

The mobile industry has spent several decades defining common identification and security standards for SIMs to protect data for mobile payment systems and credit card numbers. SIMs are also capable of running apps.

Nohl said Security Research Labs found mobile operators in many countries whose phones were vulnerable, but declined to identify them. He said mobile phone users in Africa could be among the most vulnerable because banking is widely done via mobile payment systems with credentials stored on SIMs.

All types of phones are vulnerable, including iPhones from Apple Inc, phones that run Google Inc's Android software and BlackBerry Ltd smartphones, he said.

BlackBerry's director of security response and threat analysis, Adrian Stone, said in a statement that his company proposed new SIM card standards last year to protect against the types of attacks described by Nohl, which the GSMA has adopted and advised members to implement. (Source: NDTV)

Suicide or murder?

The Madras High Court today directed that an expert doctor from the Christian Medical College in Vellore should examine the body of Ilavarasan. The Dalit man, who married a girl from the Vanniyar community, was found dead last week in Tamil Nadu.

The court said it will pass orders on whether or not a second autopsy should be performed on Ilavarasan's body after the expert's report.

The High Court wants a doctor with more than 30 years of experience to examine the body.

Yesterday, two judges of the High Court had watched the video recording of the first post-mortem performed last Thursday along with seven experts, including a forensic analyst chosen by Ilavarasan's family.

A four page letter to Divya by Ilavarasan

A four page letter purportedly written by Dalit youth Ilavarasan in which he states that none should be held responsible for his death, has been recovered by the Special Investigation Team probing the case.

SP Asra Garg said that the letter mentions details of how the boy had fallen in love with the upper caste girl Divya and talks of his subsequent marriage to her.

The SP said they had recovered the letter based on 'secret' information.

He claimed the handwriting in the letter matched that in the notebooks used in college by Ilavarasan. The letter would be submitted in court along with the post-mortem report and other material evidence, Garg said.

The autopsy performed yesterday on Ilavarasan, who was found dead on a railway track on July 4, stated that the youth had died of a "serious head injury" even as the probe was transferred from government railway police to local police.
