Ukraine Opens Chernobyl for Tourism
If you are into that Zombie crap, Ukraine is opening up quarantined Chernobyl zone for tourists. I can only imagine it to be popular between zombie lovers and amateur photographers.
The zone has been accessible to visitors only with permission from a special department of the Emergency Ministry, which ran the tours.</p>
The ministry said it would now authorise private companies to carry out guided tours of the area.

GpCode encrypts a victim's files and then demands payment for the decryption key.</p>
This is an interesting concept for cybercrime. Is it really back?. According to the world's famous encyclopedia, these types of malware became popular around mid-2006.
1024-bit encryption seems to be the new thing. And of course, the safest protection is to pull the plug.
