Microsoft Outlook flaw exploited with email preview

Microsoft Office, Windows and Server platforms suffer from remote code execution flaws, Redmond has revealed.

The vulnerabilities would be fixed as part of its Patch Tuesday set of 14 updates.

It included a Microsoft Office 2007 and 2010 flaw that could be triggered by merely previewing an email in Outlook.

Qualys CTO Wolfgang Kandek said that flaw contained within second bulletin should be a prioirty fix.

“Bulletin two should be high priority for your desktop security team,” Kandek said.

Other fixes deemed critical, Microsoft’s highest rating, update the company’s Sharepoint Server product, Internet Explorer versions 6 to 10, and operating systems Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.

Bulletins ranked “important” also included fixes for remote code execution flaws and vulnerabilities that could allow an attacker to carry out a denial-of-service, or give saboteurs elevated privileges.

Another security issue, which could allow users’ private data to be disclosed to attackers, will also be plugged with the Patch Tuesday update.,microsoft-outlook-flaw-exploited-with-email-preview.aspx

Elaine Hollingsworth writes: Shopping Centres Can Be Hazardous to Your Health

Last week I was poisoned at Robina Town Centre. Admittedly, the word “poisoned” may be a bit over-the top, but not much. I arrived there feeling fine, and within 30 minutes I felt slightly ill. In an hour I felt much worse, and after an hour and a half breathing the chemicals in the air, I started to faint. Fortunately, there was someone there to catch me and help me to my car.

I would have complained to Robina Town Centre, or to some individual stores, but why bother? They have never answered any letters or phone calls I’ve made about the quality of their air, and I’ve made a few during my 28 years as Director of Hippocrates Health Centre. I made the calls because nearly everyone who attended our centre told us that they had to limit their time in shopping centres, or stay out of them entirely, because of the bad air. Further, hundreds of persons in the many seminars I’ve given raised their hands when I asked if the air in shopping centres made them ill.

This is a scandal, and something needs to be done about it, for the sake of the people who work in the centres, day in, day out, breathing dangerous chemicals, many of which haven’t been properly tested, and some of which are well known to cause serious respiratory illnesses and cancer. For sceptics, there is abundant, persuasive scientific proof of these dangers in books written by prestigious scientists.

It’s clear that shopping centres are not going to do anything about this. But unions and government agencies can, and should, do something to protect people from dangers in the workplace. We customers have a choice – we can elect to shop in safe places, but shopping centre workers are economic captives!


We have sent the above letter to several organisations that are in a position to make changes, and we will notify you when and if we hear from them. Meantime, let us know if spending time in a shopping centre leaves you feeling foggy-headed, dizzy and generally unwell, as so many people have reported to us.

Yours in good health

Commercial Baby Foods Don’t Meet Infants’ Weaning Needs

I know this will come as a major shock to absolutely nobody I know...

UK commercial baby foods don’t meet infants’ dietary weaning needs, because they are predominantly sweet foods that provide little extra nutritional goodness over breast milk, indicates research published online in Archives of Disease in Childhood.

Merck vaccine developer admits vaccines routinely contain hidden cancer viruses derived from diseased monkeys

Decades ago, one of the most prominent vaccine scientists in the history of the vaccine industry -- a Merck scientist -- made a recording where he openly admitted that vaccines given to Americans were contaminated with leukemia and cancer viruses.

The Cancer-Causing Metal Millions Eat, Wear or Have Injected Into Their Kids


Aluminum is considered by most health authorities perfectly acceptable to eat, wear as an antiperspirant, and inject into your body as a vaccine adjuvant, but new research indicates it has cancer-causing properties, even at levels 100,000 times lower than found in certain consumer products.

A key implication of this research is that the common ingestion (food additive), injection (as a vaccine adjuvant), and topical application (antiperspirant) of forms of aluminum may be contributing to the burgeoning cancer epidemic in exposed populations.

Fluoridated Water Amounts To Public Murder On A Grand Scale - Dr. Burk.

It has been known for over 30 years that fluoridated public water is responsible for approximately 1/5th of all cancers diagnosed each year in exposed populations. In this amazing interview, Dr. Dean Burk, former NCI researcher and discoverer of biotin, reveals fluoridated water as a form of "public murder on a grand scale’...

Gotta love this!

An Elder

Here’s something for us all to aspire to.

If I had my child to raise over again

If I had my child to raise over again,

I’d finger paint more, and point the finger less.

I’d do less correcting, and more connecting.

I’d take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.

I would care to know less, and know to care more.

I’d take more hikes and fly more kites.

I’d stop playing serious, and seriously play.

I’d run through more fields, and gaze at more stars.

I’d do more hugging, and less tugging.

I would be firm less often, and affirm much more.

I’d build self-esteem first, and the house later.

I’d teach less about the love of power,

And more about the power of love.

It matters not whether my child is big or small,

From this day forth, I’ll cherish it all.

Facebook Change from Ryan Deiss

What week would be complete without a major social media network update? Facebook decided to tweak the EdgeRank algorithm—a change Social Media Examiner investigated in its article Facebook News Feed Updates: How Marketers Should Respond to Story Bump. It will be interesting to see how this shifts the effectiveness and the shelf life of Facebook posts.

Keyword Lookup Tool Change from Ryan Deiss

One big announcement came from Google, which revealed its Keyword Planner has replaced Keyword Tool. Google now requires you to log into an AdWords account to accomplish tasks formerly handled by Keyword Tool, and this Google support post covers what this means for SEO strategists.

The Keyword Planner, in combination with some impressive new reporting features, is helping shape the way SEO is performed and measured across the Google platform. The Inside AdWords blog covered this in Analyze and optimize your search footprint with the new paid & organic report—a piece I plan to read in full, because I believe it signals the beginning stages of a Web traffic game changer.

The Google ‘Not Provided’ Problem Isn’t Getting Any Better

About two years ago, Google launched SSL Search on as the default for signed in users, as a measure to protect user privacy. This encrypted search meant not providing keyword search data through analytics to websites that these users visited. As a webmaster, you would see that you were getting this traffic from Google, but the keywords would be unknown, as Google would label this traffic Not Provided.
