All Pictures From Sundarbans are FAKE!

All those pictures you see from Sundarbans are FAKE. Some are Photoshopped, some are from Hollywood movies, like few are from Jurassic Park, some are from movie Avatar, and rest are just Oil Paintings. In fact there are no Sundarbans in Bangladesh, we hardly have few বাঁশ ঝাড়, but Biggest Mangrove Forest Sundarbans in Bangladesh? No way! There might be something in India, they are the big country, they should have everything!

Screen-Shot-2014-08-08-at-11.29.51-AM

Don’t give me the lecture that it will be alright just like Facebook Newsfeed and Timeline redesigns! It will not, most likely because, if we have to open another new app for chat/msz it will not be Facebook Messenger. For me I will prefer Viber, others could prefer Skype, WhatsApp, Line, Kik or even Google Hangout, but it will be hardly FB Messenger! I am also downloading it, so I could give one star, and what if Facebook loose some mainstream user in their main app after this move?

Who-is-responsible

Sucuri discovered the vulnerability, and informed the MailPoet team, gave them information and time to fix the issue. The MailPoet team did resolved it, but Sucuri disclosed the vulnerability to the wild just within 24hr of MailPoet released the update at WordPress.org.

This is not a Responsible Disclosure! We all are glad to Sucuri that they discovered the issue and informed the developer, but how on earth they expected a plugin which is downloaded more then 2 million times, and one of the most used plugin in its sector, could force their user to update to latest version within 24hr?

Result – 50 thousand WordPress site hacked using this exploit!

Who to blame? The security firm that we all love or their Responsible Disclosure?

keep-calm-and-control-your-anger

Sohag Bhai once said “If somebody calls you by name (ex. son of something etc), you should not get angry. Try to think in this way. He is calling you that, there could be two reason, 1) Either he is blind or 2) he is mad. How could you doubt yourself, if you are human or not! Maybe you should feel pity for that person, because for any of those two reason its his/her misfortune!

Today seen an sad example how ego and hot temper could ruin something super great. When you are super angry, your blood is boiling for whatever reason, you will even won’t get a clue that someone is not your enemy and maybe he wants to help. The situation what you could have controlled completely in your favor, if only if you would try go beyond your anger and ego.
