For me, maganda tong naisip mo OP. Because of the new system, it is indeed harder for deserving newbies to rank up in the forum. Hindi naman ito pandadaya o pagsasawalang bahala sa new system, at feel ko ay makakatulong nga ito dahil it will make it easier for mods and high ranking members to distinguish which accounts deserve to be merited. Kudos dito!

Yup! Although not all people will get the chance to go through higher education, it is important that most of us do. Other than the usual reasons such as having more knowledge, wiser, and etc., it keeps the world balanced in some way.

Professionals, bosses, inventors, scientists, artists: most of them in these times are highly educated. There are those who dont go to college anymore and pursue a vocational course or just immediately get a job after high school, and these are good too. It balances out everything. If everyone were highly educated and academics, then there would be no manual laborers and workers. If no one went to college, then vice versa.

As of now, my favorite book/s would be Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children series. It really got me hooked and I read the whole trilogy for about two weeks, because the writing was just flawless. It was simple and not too flowery, but turned out amazing to read and pleasing to the eyes.

The story is really good and unique too, so I definitely recommend reading this series. it's worth it, trust me!! Also I know that there is a film based on the books but trust me, the books are faaar far better.

There are lots of people who choose to be single not because of heartbreak or failure in relationships, but they just enjoy the life of being free and independent.

I have a girlfriend, but I still look up to those who choose to be single as it is completely their right to choose to be one and we're not really all required to produce children and have families.

Life could exist anywhere, really. Sure, you can base the existence of life in other planets based on how it is on Earth (water, oxygen, and all other factors) but that's how we evolved-- we evolved in these circumstances.

If there will be life in other planets where we humans cannot possibly live in because of biological factors, it is possible too because the life there would be existing and evolving based on the circumstances of that planet's nature and composition.

Regarding Mars, however, we cannot say for sure until we have explored every space in that planet.

I will keep this in mind, thank you~! To be honest, I grew up as an introvert. I really hated public speaking, even reciting in class makes me shiver and have an anxiety attack. Although now, I can say that I am a really changed person.

I dont mind answering questions in class any more and I am not that awkward around new people (I was before, horribly). I think it's part of maturing or growing up, you just have to face your fears. This may be quite weird but I think of it this way now: there are billions of people in the earth and they might have gone through this at least once, so why must I be afraid?

The best (and most emotional for me) is Kimi No Nawa for now, although there are a lot of other good anime movies out there. It's just that Kimi No Nawa's story, animation, and soundtrack are so beautiful and breathtaking. It will not be a waste of your time.

Other than the obvious ones such as soldiers, police, firefighters and etc., I think one that can be considered in the list of dangerous jobs (research actually say so) is being a journalist. I know many journalists who constantly receive death threats almost every day because of fighting for the truth, and in my country (Philippines), many journalists are killed every year for fighting for their principles.

Maraming salamat dito, GDragon!! Sa totoo lang ay wala pa ko sa hanay ng mga nabanggit mo, pero malaking karangalan na masama sa bilang nila kahit papano.

At sa iba naman, totoong dapat suportahan natin ang iba mong nabanggit dahil kitang kita ko rin na sila ang active dito sa forum at sadyang may substance ang posts. Sana'y magsilbi silang inspirasyon sa ibang Pinoy na husayan din dito sa forum.

Salamat ulit!

Exactly. To be honest, I've already read your post regarding the Garena-LoL cryptojacking incident. This goes to show that even big-name companies such as Garena and trusted games such as LoL can be used by expert hackers to infect and use other people's computers for mining. This is why cryptojacking in smartphones is not that surprising at all, considering that incident happened right under our noses.

snip ...masyado nanag matalino ang mga hackers ngayon kaya Think before you click.

Bukod sa agree ako sa sinabi mo tungkol doon sa LoL incident, mas sang-ayon ako dito sa huli mong sinabi. Hindi na basta basta ang mga hacker ngayon at bukod sa panghahack ng ibang kilalang apps, ngayon ay sila na mismo ang gumagawa ng sarili nilang mga apps para sa cryptojacking. Mas tumatalino na nga sila ngayon at mas madiskarte, kaya kailangan tayo rin. Think before you click, ika mo nga.

Hindi lang mga apps sa phone ang prone, meron din mga PC apps na merong mga miner. Nabalitaan ko dati na ang ccleaner ay nagkaganun din pero hindi agad nila ito pinatagal at naglabas agad sila ng update patungkol dito. Ang tip ko ay kung gusto niyong magdownload ng mga apps ay magresearch muna kayo ng maigi at magtanong tanong sa mga forums or groups sa fb kung okay ba itong apps na ito. Mahirap na ang panahon ngayon, baka hindi lang miner ang laman ng mga yun kungdi mga virus na makikita ang info ng isang phone kaya kailangan doble ingat.

Tama ka dyan kapatid, wala nang safe na device ngayon mapa-smartphone o computer pa yan. Pero bagong info sa akin yung tungkol sa ccleaner, at aaminin ko ay gumagamit ako nito kaya medyo kinabahan ako. Buti na lang naayos na nila haha. Pero ayun nga, research ang isa sa pinakamabisang panlaban natin dyan. Research sa developer at sa mismong app na gusto mong gamitin. Talo ang tamad, lalo na kung mabiktima.

Meron na rin akong nabalitaan na ganyan na ginagamit ang mga phone sa pag mina ng coins na hindi alam ng user kaya mabilis ma lowbatt lagi ang phone kahit kakacharge lang ng may ari. Dapat din mag ingat ang mga tao sa mga app na mga faucets o kaya un mga mobile wallet na di mo kilala ang gumawa.

Ayon nga rin sa iba kong mga nabasa, kahit daw hindi mga apps ay kayang mag-cryptojack. Kahit daw mismong mga websites lang ay kaya, at lalo na ang mga faucet websites na di naman natin kilala

Tama ka dyan. Kaya sa totoo lang, noong nabasa ko yung news article na yun, na-paranoid ako bigla sa pagda-download ng apps dahil kahit pala sa google nakakalusot ang mga ganito. Ingat ingat na lang talaga tayo!

It would be better if you cite all the possible application that can cause cryptojacking in android phones to spread awareness among our people.

I have read a recent article that League of Legends an PC online game had spreaded cryptojacking in most of the pc platform. If I am not mistaken the issue haven been solved tho I am not that updated when it comes to pc gaming lol.

Another thing is please avoid rooting your android phones as it may alter the operating system which can cause a complete access to everything making it vulnerable an unknown types of files installed.

Thank you very much and this is noted! Regarding android phones particularly, I have been researching what specific apps have been tagged as cryptojackers but I am yet to find definite answers. The only credible one I got was from Rappler, which was the Bug Smasher app.

If this helps, I found out that several dictionary applications, particularly a Portuguese language app, a zombie-themed game, and a VPN. Google claimed that they have been removing them since however.

BABALA: HACKERS TARGET ANDROID PHONES FOR MINING THROUGH APPS

Base sa isang article ng Rappler, may nauuso nang trend ngayon ang mga hackers pagdating sa cryptocurrency mining, at ito ay gamit ang APPS galing sa playstore.

Ang tawag nila dito ngayon ay "CRYPTOJACKING"

Dahil sa cryptojacking, babagal ang phone at mabilis maubos ang battery ng mga biktima nang hindi nila nalalaman ang dahilan. Ang mas malala pa, maaari itong magdulot ng tuluyang pagkasira ng inyong mga smartphone. Base sa isang security researcher at expert na si David Emm, isang taon pa lamang nauuuso ang trend na ito.

BAKIT ANDROID?

Sabi ng mga experts, mas tinatarget ng mga hackers ang mga phones na umaandar gamit ang Google's Android OS dahil mas vulnerable ito kesa sa mga Apple products.

Ito raw ay dahil mas may control ang Apple sa kung anong mga apps ang pwedeng ma-install sa kanilang mga devices dahil may sarili silang app store, habang sa Android naman ay mas madaling maglagay ng apps sa Google playstore.

Paano nga ba nila ginagawa ito?

Ayon kay Emm, gumagawa ang mga hacker ng mga mukhang kaaya-aya na apps at mga laro para itago ang masamang balak; kumbaga ay ito ang Trojan Horse ng cyberworld, ika nga niya.

Once na ma-download ito ng user, automatic na magi-install ng malware ang app sa device ng user, mapa-smartphone o computer man. Itong malware na ito ang gagamit ng CPU ng device ng user para sa pagma-mine ng cryptocurrency.

ANONG MAAARING GAWIN LABAN DITO?

1. I-update lagi ang iyong android phone sa latest na OS na available, 'wag nang patagalin pa.
2. Mag-install ng mga trusted na antivirus softwares, tulad ng: Avast, Norton, Kaspersky. (Kung may nais kayong idagdag, mas maganda)
3. Wag magdownload ng apps galing sa mga unofficial sources. In short, magresearch muna tungkol sa developer ng app na gusto mong i-install.
4. Maghanap ng mga misspellings, typos, at wrong grammar sa mga apps na balak niyong i-download. Dito niyo malalaman ang credibility ng isang app.
5. Magbasa ng reviews, at lalo pang dapat niyo hanapin ay ang mga negative reviews. Kapag may review na  nagpapabagal ito ng phone at nanguubos ng battery, magtaka na kayo at baka app for cryptojacking ito.

Hanggang ngayon ay hirap tukuyin ng mga expert kung anong mga app ang nagki-crytptojack, pero isa sa mga apps na ito ang Bug Smasher, na sa kasamaang palad ay nadownload na ng mahigit 5 milyong tao.

Kaya mag-ingat tayo mga kapatid, baka tayo ang sunod na mabiktima nito. Ayun lamang, maraming salamat sa pagbabasa!!!

I believe we have to get used to electric cars because in the future, they are all that's gonna be as fossil fuels are being used up and we will definitely soon run out of it.

Other than gasoline being limited, they are also an environmental hazard. So electric cars would be the best way to go as we are in this inescapable situation (unless they find a way to make unlimited gas or something).

However, Im not sure if having electric cars are more earth-friendly; yeah sure they dont emit smoke and doesnt need to burn fuel out, but I'm not really sure if the process of charging them up is completely safe for the environment. That's why I think we  must invest our time, money, and effort on finding out what the optimal electric car is and start working on it (something both safe and great for humans and the earth) because sooner or later, fueled cars will have to go.

I am on youtube every day, and I have subscribed to so many channels and watch tons of videos all the time that I don't really know if I have a favorite. However, I can say for now that I definitely love Buzzfeed Unsolved more than any other channels.

The used to be in Buzzfeed Blue, but now they have their own channel after gaining too many fans and high ratings. And they deserve it! They some of the best original content a youtuber can offer, and it's just so much fun watching Shane and Ryan take on serious stuff with an absolutely non-serious manner. The show's hilarious!

Shoutout to all the Shaniacs and Boogaras out there  Wink

I haven't really played GTA V now, but I am a fan of the Grand Theft Auto series. I used to play them all the time as a child. Whether if it's on the computer or the PSP, I played it. I have played almost all the GTA games when I was a child, and I plan on buying GTA V in the future once I have my gaming pc (and the time).  Grin
