After a month-long Mac Defender/Mac Guard malware attack, Apple has finally released the security update it promised last week.

The bad guys have wasted no time. Hours after Apple released this update and the initial set of definitions, a new variation of Mac Defender is in the wild. This one has a new name, Mdinstall.pkg, and it has been specifically formulated to skate past Apple's malware-blocking code.

Intel has been congratulated for its 'great leadership' after deciding to shelve its open source licence, which has fallen into disuse

The issue of licence proliferation has caused concern among some in the open source community as it can increase the cost for companies wishing to adopt open source software, as they need to review and manage each type of licence. Intel decided to get rid of its licence after finding that it had not been used within the company for several years and is not often used outside Intel, according to an Intel spokesman. Smith said that it does not want the "de-approval" of the licence to be retroactive to past uses, as it does not want to force companies to re-license code. Intel's decision was praised by Martin Fink, the vice-president of HP's Linux division, who recently told ZDNet UK that the number of open source licences needs to be reduced from the current figure of more than 50 to "something less than 10".

Here's a map that purports to show how much oil there is in North America and that the supply far exceeds the demand. This website argues greed is driving the high oil price, not shortage.

Enough oil? Peak oil? Past our peak? Not only do I have no clue what's true, neither do most people, including a lot of VCs and that keeps 1) the oil price high, and 2) the interest in cleantech high. Because nobody wants to sit in the dark, walk to work or have cold stew for dinner.

Electronic ID chips have found their way into everything from shavers to prison inmates. In September, with the Gulf Coast reeling from Katrina, some people found an entirely new use for the technology: identifying the dead.

Gary Hargrove, coroner of Mississippi's Harrison County, began injecting radio frequency identification (RFID) chips into cadavers to cope with the mounting body count. He said the chips, supplied by a Florida company called VeriChip, helped the county identify and return storm victims to their families without mix-ups. The county also injected the chips into bodies dislodged from graves during flooding.

While tobacco was introduced to the world by America in 1492, some states in the U.S are now considering a ban on smoking in cars and even homes.

Nineteen states and the administrators of nearly 2,300 cities are passing a law to ban smoking in as many places as possible. While America is doing its utmost to protect its own citizens from the lethal effects of tobacco, it backs the policy of selling tobacco to third-world countries. Ohio recently passed a law banning smoking in workplaces and public places. Even those smoking outside their workplaces will be fined $100.

A few years ago when I was throwing around the idea of homeschooling my daughter, I had a discussion with a friend of mine over coffee and goldfish crackers while our kids played with wooden trains.

It was a reasonable assumption. After all, I'm an introverted artist and writer living rurally with extended family and plenty of bizarre thoughts floating around in my head. Basically, I'm a weirdo. But no, I wasn't homeschooled. I was educated in the public school system. That's right Mrs. Warnica, what I am today is all on you.

Japanese Defense Ministry has awarded Fujitsu a contract to develop a vigilante computer virus, which will track down and eliminate other viruses, or rather - their sources of origin

Are 'good' viruses a bad idea? Sophos seems to think so, saying, "When you're trying to gather digital forensic evidence as to what has broken into your network, and what data it may have stolen, it's probably not wise to let loose a program that starts to trample over your hard drives, making changes."
