Kaspersky Internet Security - Phishing Attack

We have recent reports that Kaspersky Internet Security is issuing "Phishing Attack" warning messages, when any BlogSpot blog is loaded on a protected computer.

To validate any such warnings, use other anti-malware sites, such as McAfee Site Advisor. Verification of such warnings is a necessary task, so not to cause a panic. Claims that the entire BlogSpot address space is infected won't do anybody any good, except maybe the hackers who would love to see benevolent web sites, hosted by BlogSpot, avoided by those needing advice.

Don't be caught up by rumours - please validate any security alerts. And post your findings at Google Blogger Help - Something Is Broken.

>> (Update 2/9 21:00): Advisory note on Kaspersky Support Forum noted, possible time stamp 2/9 21:19 UDT states

False alarm fixed. Please update local bases
>> (Update 2/8 20:30): Kaspersky customers, in their support forum, are also suspecting a false positive detection.

The above was taken from The Real Blogger Status site. Many thanks.

Heres an extract from James Allen's classic As A Man Thinketh.
Man, in his writings, refers to Mankind which encompasses both sexes. No silly PC nonsense here.
Worth reading and well worth taking 10 mins out and looking at just how this short extract reflects the world today, and if you want the full copy for your blog GA Ill glady email it.
Cheers,
Harry.



James Allen was born in Leicester, England in 1864. Unfortunately, his career as a writer was very short, lasting only nine years until his death in 1912. After finishing his first book, From Poverty To Power, he moved to Ilfracombe, in England where he then wrote his classic As A Man Thinketh; the book for which he is best remembered. Although it is widely acknowledged as a masterpiece of New Thought writing, he was somewhat dissatisfied with the end-product; and we have his wife, Lily, to thank for finally persuading him to have it published.
James Allen's Classic As a Man Thinketh
...................

A man only begins to be a man when he ceases to whine and revile, and commences to search for the hidden justice which regulates his life. And he adapts his mind to that regulating factor, he ceases to accuse others as the cause of his condition, and builds himself up in strong and noble thoughts; ceases to kick against circumstances, but begins to use them as aids to his more rapid progress, and as a means of discovering the hidden powers and possibilities within himself.
Law, not confusion, is the dominating principle in the universe; justice, not injustice, is the soul and substance of life. Righteousness, not corruption, is the molding and moving force in the spiritual government of the world. This being so, man has but to right himself to find that the universe is right. And during the process of putting himself right, he will find that as he alters his thoughts towards things and other people, things and other people will alter towards him.

The proof of this truth is in every person, and it therefore admits of easy investigation by systematic introspection and self-analysis. Let a man radically alter his thoughts, and he will be astonished at the rapid transformation it will effect in the material conditions of his life. Men imagine that thought can be kept secret, but it cannot. It rapidly crystallizes into habit, and habit solidifies into circumstance. Bestial thoughts crystallize into habits of drunkenness and sensuality, which solidify into circumstances of destitution and disease. Impure thoughts of every kind crystallize into enervating and confusing habits, which solidify into distracting and adverse circumstances. Thoughts of fear, doubt, and indecision crystallize into weak, unmanly, and irresolute habits, which solidify into circumstances of failure, indigence, and slavish dependence. Lazy thoughts crystallize into weak, habits of uncleanliness and dishonesty, which solidify into circumstances of foulness and beggary. Hateful and condemnatory thoughts crystallize into habits of accusation and violence, which solidify into circumstances of injury and persecution. Selfish thoughts of all kinds crystallize into habits of self-seeking, which solidify into distressful circumstances.
On the other hand, beautiful thoughts of all kinds crystallize into habits of grace and kindliness, which solidify into genial and sunny circumstances. Pure thoughts crystallize into habits of temperance and self-control, which solidify into circumstances of repose and peace. Thoughts of courage, self-reliance, and decision crystallize into manly habits, which solidify into circumstances of success, plenty, and freedom. Energetic thoughts crystallize into habits of cleanliness and industry, which solidify into circumstances of pleasantness. Gentle and forgiving thoughts crystallize into habits of gentleness, which solidify into protective and preservative circumstances. Loving and unselfish thoughts which solidify into circumstances of sure and abiding prosperity and true riches.

A particular train of thought persisted in, be it good or bad, cannot fail to produce its results on the character and circumstances. A man cannot directly choose his circumstances, but he can choose his thoughts, and so indirectly, yet surely, shape his circumstances. Nature helps every man to gratification of the thoughts which he most encourages, and opportunities are presented which will most speedily bring to the surface both the good and the evil thoughts.
