Guess what? Someone has been trying to hack this site for the past few days. I have a strong feeling it's the same hacker that defaced XX's site.
As evident from the screenshot, the hacker has been sending me fake emails with attachments (most probably containing trojans and/or keylogging software) since 21st July (The day I condemned his/her actions).
The above email from blogger support confirmed my suspicions.
Here's my advice to the hacker: Stop wasting your time! I'm not so stupid as to set my IC num as the password (Read Today's TNP to understand the inside joke)
Moving on to other news, I read with amusement the TNP feature on cassandra today. As much as I tried to contain myself, I eventually burst out laughing uncontrollably at the dining table for a good 5 minutes. Going by the pseudonym "nikki" (which by the way sounds like the name of a dog I know), she told TNP that she decided to sue Maxim because they published her photos without her permission and that she didn't know Maxim was a Men's magazine and she was worried what her family would think if they saw her photos on a Men's magazine.
Let's not even talk about the part where she claims she didn't know Maxim was a Men's magazine (Who the hell doesn't know? And for heaven's sake did she say she's a Model?). I wonder whether she stopped to consider what her family would think of her as the covergirl for the AIDS campaign.
Now we all know the real reason why she is suing Maxim - Yes my intelligent blogders, It's all about the money. Prior to her pulling a Xiaxue on us, I remember a blog entry where she said:
"Anyway.. i got so mad today when i saw the bloody Maxim Magazine. I am SOOO GOING TO SUE THEM! I don't feel like going into details.. i am still feeling so worked up. Right now i am already calling up lawyers. They should just wait and see. So what if it's an international magazine? The Singapore Maxim is so low class and the people working behind it is so cheap and despicable. I usually don't even have a temper, but i can't sit by and let them have their way cos they are too much! Even the Advertising Company is very mad at them and thinking of sueing them too. I think i have a sure win case here. Worse come to worse, if nothing can be done about it, i'll curse them on my website and go into details.. tell everyone how many times i rejected their photoshoots and how they con the advertising company into sending them the pictures.. and how they didn't get any permission to do what they did! I am told to calm down.. but if it happens to you, are you able to calm down?"
and I also remember her posting about the reason why she rejected Maxim's attempts to get her to pose for them: "Who the hell will do it for free?" or something along that line.
Yes, she's pissed because ultimately she wasn't paid to be on the cover of Maxim. If she wasn't in it for the money, she wouldn't have stupidly called up TNP (circulation: 154,004) to do an interview to expose Maxim (circulation: 45,000) and blow up the matter (in hopes of seeking higher damages) because now instead of spending $5 on a Maxim magazine, I got to see her sexy photos for much much less on our beloved national tabloid paper.
Note to readers: Both Maxim and TNP are under SPH so I applaud cassandra's brave attempt in suing the former as I recall the fate of the last plaintiffs (T.T Durai & NKF) who tried to sue them and advise her to reflect seriously on using the latter to blow up the matter.
