Health Warning Hoax from Dubai Health Authority -- Skin Cancer Caused by Scratch Card Coating

Beware! Its a Cyber World -- Summary:

A health warning message purportedly from Dubai Health Authority is spreading on different social networks like Facebook and LinkedIn. The message, in the form of an image, warned in English and Arabic languages that scratch card coating can cause skin cancer if removed by the nails.

The message is also spreading through email and looks like below:

Health Warning Hoax from Dubai Health Authority

And reads like this ….

Medical research Authority of the US have found that new cancer in human beings caused by Silver Nitro oxide ..
Whenever you buy recharge cards don't scratch it with nails as it contain silver nitro oxide coating and can cause skin cancer ...
Share this message with your loved ones …”

Beware! Its a Cyber World -- Explanation:

This is totally a fake warning and a kind of ‘Hoax Reborn’. The same kind of message made its way on social networks back in July-August this year which proved to be FAKE or HOAX after due research.

Searching the term ‘Skin cancer scratch card’ on Dubai Health Authority just fetched the following results:

No results matching your search were found.
1. Check your spelling. Are the words in your query spelled correctly?
2. Try using synonyms. Maybe what you're looking for uses slightly different words.
3. Make your search more general. Try more general terms in place of specific ones.
4. Try your search in a different scope. Different scopes can have different results.

So clearly the message has no validity and should not be given importance more than a HOAX.

"Alien Skull" Discovered in Peru by Renato Davila Riquelme -- Reality or Hoax..??

Peruvian anthropologist Renato Davila Riquelme has discovered the remains of an unidentified creature with a "triangle shaped" mummified elongated skull nearly as large as its 20-inch-tall body in the city of Andahuaylillas in the southern province of Quispicanchi.

The discovery has been creating quite a buzz, and according to Peruvian news site RPP several anonymous Spanish and Russian anthropologists claiming that it cannot possibly belong to any human ethnic groups on earth and thus has come from another planet.

Similar to most ‘evidence’ of outer space species occurrence on Earth, the ‘alien skull’ is extremely humanoid in its resent looks, with standard human-esque features aside from the elongated shape of the skull; while critics of UFO (Unidentified Flying Object) believers have often suggested that the possibility of alien species resemblance with humans so closely is very small.

The claims made by RPP seem totally improbable, even as the discoverer Renato Davila Riquelme has stated that the remains are those of a child. So who are these people celebrating the discovery of an ancient alien?

"It has a non-human appearance," a statement from the scientists read. "The head is triangular and big, almost the same size as the boy... yes, it's an extraterrestrial being."

Critics of the “alien skull” maintain that the skull “could be that of a hydrocephalic child or a tribal member who has undergone tribal rituals involving skull modification”, an ancient practice with thousands of years of history. The ritualistic deformation normally starts just after the birth of a child till the next couple of years until the desired shape has been attained or the child rejects the apparatus used to modify the skull. It was practiced generally to signify group affiliation or to demonstrate social status.

On the other hand; THE INQUISITR, presented another theory about this discovery. According to website: 

“Just like every other time an inexplicable artifact surfaces only to be later discredited in a far less high profile news story, a supposed alien skull has allegedly been located in Peru.”

Beware! Here Comes the Duqu Virus after Stuxnet

A computer virus based on Stuxnet has been detected, claimed by Iran yesterday (Sunday, Nov. 13), which is dubbed as Duqu. Stuxnet virus hit Iran’s computers in 2010 and its damages couldn’t still wipe out completely.

Beware! Here Comes Duqu Virus after Stuxnet
Gholamreza Jalali, the head of Iran’s civil defense organization, told the official IRNAnews agency that they were in the starting stage of fighting the Duqu virus. “The final report which says which organizations the virus has spread to and what its impacts are has not been completed yet,” Jalali said further.

News of Duqu unleashed last month, according to Reuters reports, when security software maker Symantec Corp claimed that it had discovered a baffling virus that contained Stuxnet-like code. Duqu is apparently designed to collect data to launch future cyber attacks much easier, experts told Reuters.

Last year’s Stuxnet targeted at damaging industrial control systems and may have cracked some of the centrifuges Iran uses to enrich uranium.

After Stuxnet targeted Iran’s nuclear facilities and other industrial sites last year, the Islamic Republic acknowledged that it had affected a limited number of centrifuges at its main uranium enrichment facility in the central city of Natanz.

However, it claimed its scientists discovered and neutralized the malware before it could cause serious damage.
