Career Column

Career-Op: Back to School
by Douglas E. Welch, ComputorEdge Magazine

I get many questions from readers regarding how they should continue their education as a way to begin or further their high-tech careers. Most often their questions are about which technical school or technical training to pursue and where. It may seem counterintuitive, but my usual recommendation doesnâ??t involve further technical training, but, rather, the pursuit of traditional educational outlets such as bachelor, master and Ph.D programs.

New Worm/Virus making the rounds

Have you noticed a few emails from support@microsoft.com in your Inbox today? If so, you might be seeing the latest worm/virus propogating across the Internet. Known as W32/Palyh and W32.HLLW.Mankx@mm, this worm, like others, attempts to infect your machine using an atttached file. If it succeeds, it looks for additional email addresses where it can send itself.

As always, update your anti-virus programs as soon as possible. Also, avoid any email that contains an attachment whose name ends in .PIF, .EXE, or .SCR.
