Intel Working on New 6-Core Nehalem
Intel is reportedly hard at work on a new 6-core Nehalem processor with the aim of releasing it at just about the same time as its already announced Lynnfield processors. With its plans of phasing out older Core i7 CPUs later in the year, the new processor is not expected to carry this branding.
Citing sources close to Intel, tech portal Bit-tech reported that the new processor has been designed to be compatible with existing X58/LGA1366 motherboards. A BIOS upgrade will be necessary for this compatibility, but it seems that the necessary support has already been added by most board manufacturers.
According to the report, the new 6-core processor will most likely match Intel’s fastest Core i7 975 processor; however, it will come probably be placed under a new, yet to be named brand line.

Phishing emails are nothing new, but I like reading them sometimes just because some of them show some imagination sometimes. I swear the people who think them up should try writing novels for a living :D. Here's the latest one I received, I thought it was quite funny:

[FONT=Arial]The scary part is that I remember seeing a documentary on phishers a couple of years ago, and some people have lost large amounts of money by responding to these ****pots. In the documentary, the reporters responded to a phishing email, and a meeting was set up where the reporter had to bring along money to enable the 'release' of the funds. Two Nigerians showed up and then done a bunk once the penny dropped that they had been set up. The show also featured some people who had been scammed and lost money so people did fall for crap like this every now and then.

wiki says not:D

In the field of computer security, phishing is the criminally fraudulent process of attempting to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. Communications purporting to be from popular social web sites, auction sites, online payment processors or IT Administrators are commonly used to lure the unsuspecting public. Phishing is typically carried out by e-mail or instant messaging,[1] and it often directs users to enter details at a fake website whose look and feel are almost identical to the legitimate one. Even when using server authentication, it may require tremendous skill to detect that the website is fake. Phishing is an example of [URL=""]social engineering[/URL] techniques used to fool users,[2] and exploits the poor usability of current web security technologies.[3] Attempts to deal with the growing number of reported phishing incidents include legislation, user training, public awareness, and technical security measures.
A phishing technique was described in detail in 1987, and the first recorded use of the term "phishing" was made in 1996. The term is a variant of fishing,[4] probably influenced by phreaking,[5][6] and alludes to baits used to "catch" financial information and passwords.

Also, you don't have to be stupid, especially when it's newcomers to IT who end up targetted or people who have never experienced phishing before.

Yeah it's equiv of me sending u an email, claiming I'm ur bank, asking u to provide details and giving u a link.

The phising bit is when the link I give u looks 100% like ur bank on the face of it, but the link details are quite different and will point to some site I've setup for farming details.

People need to be aware that banks don't actually need ur details.

Heck my bank phoned me legitimately about some feedback on a service and I wouldn't tell the person my details - I phone my bank, they confirmed it had legitimately taken place, and I said to them there and then - u shouldn't phone people and ask them security questions. My reply was u phoned me, u tell me my security info and I'll check ur legit 1st :p Not only that, fraudsters will pick-up on people getting used to their banks phoning them.

Write a book? It's not quite the same, but I know they've written out a book - there are others, but that was the first one I could find.

Also, this isn't phishing, it's advance fee fraud.
