What to Watch Out After the 14th Congress is Seated

I just hope that the COMELEC will pay attention to these issues when they draft their proposal to the recently passed election automation bill since there are some calls within the COMELEC to use e-voting system… From silicon.com: Privacy campaigners have called for any further e-voting trials to be scrapped after uncovering evidence of poor … Continue reading


Microsoft better at patching XP than Vista?

From ComputerWorld: June 22, 2007 (IDG News Service) — A Microsoft Corp. security executive released data Thursday showing that, six months after shipping Windows Vista, his company has left more publicly disclosed Vista bugs unpatched than it did with Windows XP.

University Database Hacking

From Post Independent: A hacker broke into a computer server at the University of Colorado College of Arts and Sciences’ Academic Advising Center, exposing the names and Social Security numbers of nearly 45,000 students, officials said Tuesday.

Are You a Filipino? – Part 2

A voter’s responsibility did not begin nor end yesterday, May 14. So where have I been lately? True to my words, I did try to protect the votes of the Filipino people. I served with PPCRV at my parents’ precinct in Batangas. And I went (with Kalinagan’s Interim Secretary-General, John Joshua Duldulao) at the City … Continue reading

Diliman Fiasco

This might have been pretty late but I just want to share my experience regarding the new CRS (UIS) system. (Other people also wrote about this here, here and here.)

On UIS (CRS) Security

Last Wednesday, the new eCRS team released the University Information System (a new version(?) of what used to be the Computerized Registration System). It reminded me a lot of my security predictions for 2007. (Heck! They just made some my predictions come true.) This is a good example of a release that is not even … Continue reading

On Video Encryption

One of this year’s thesis topics is on streamming video encryption. This is very interesting indeed since it will address society’s continuous demand for better security. However, encrypting streamming videos might compromise its speed. Even with high compression, a stronger encryption might still compromise speed. But there really is a lot of potential regarding this … Continue reading

Click-free Interface I stumbled upon this website. The site presented a very interesting interface: No Clicking. What is more interesting is that almost twice of the respondent liked the click-free interface without missing the click. The website also presented several alternatives to clicking. Is it time to revolutionized the user interface? Can you survive without … Continue reading

Good Practice #1: Default Deny

Let’s face it. Security had long been an issue in the Windows platform. This is partly because it had been implementing the dumbest practice in security: Default Permit. During the last few days I’ve been trying several anti-virus and anti-spyware solutions in the market. And well, nothing really works. Why? Because they’re enumerating badness. Instead … Continue reading
