Yesterday's In.Tech

Posted by Hello

Yesterday, In-Tech reported that the Federal Police CID Director, Datuk Musa Hassan warned users against sending junk and hate e-mail.

I haven't received any hate mails since not many people know me well enough to hate me. Those who hate me are either illiterate or are not savvy enough to send e-mails. These are the people who stuck stamps on their pc. But I have been getting a lot of e-mails with virus lately. They seem to be coming a week after I wrote a post supporting fellow blogger Jeff Ooi. I hope it is just a coincidence.

To the lamers who tried to infect my pc, cease and desist please. You are wasting my time and you are wasting yours. I do not have much time left to waste. To make sure that I do not waste time with spam and malicious e-mails, I have, long ago, installed a mail management program and of course a good Anti-Virus software. The mail management program will blacklist all mails that are not on my Friends List. That will take care of e-mails urging me to enlarge my breasts, offer cheap Viagra and how to make me rich in 6 weeks. The Anti Virus program will automatically delete e-mails that contain virus.

I know that there is a possibility some might be retaliating for receiving e-mails purportedly from me. This could happen when a worm infected a pc that has my e-mail address in it. Rest assured that it wasn't my doing. I have better things to do than send malicious e-mails to complete strangers. If this happened to you, just scrub your pc with a good antivirus program.

To the rest of us, read what Datuk Hassan said. Take his warning seriously.

  • Hmm...another sleepless night Pok Ku...Uncle Ku sounds better. This was posted quite late at night. I noticed the time.

    I think it's unfair that the Cops are starting to give out warnings through the media on the hate email issue just because someone has been circulating hate emails victimizing Siti Nurhaliza. I bet you there are others out there who have tried going to the Cops regarding hate emails they've been receiving only to be scorned and laughed at.

    Why do Malaysians never change...? If it hits some celebrity then everyone will make a big huu haa out of it but it hits some 'mok cik jual sayur tepi jalang' nobody gives a shit.

    Nevertheless, the warning that has been issued must be taken seriously.

  • I think this warning was issued because of CT Nurhaliza's case. They wouldn't care if it happened to me.

  • Nice to hear that you have taken steps to ensure your own security although sadly it can't be said of the rest.

    I do believe though you choose what you read and what you believe. If you choose to believe poison pen letters or stuff like that, too bad i guess. What a waste of a great mind to believe such worthless stuff :P

    Cheers!!! :D
