Zend CE has a Worm?

After updating the AVGFree virus definitions, I was surprised to find that Zend CE (Community Edition) 4.0.6 had a reported worm in the JavaServer.exe file. There was greater surprise when Zend CE 5.3.9 (5.6.0-SP1) also had the same reported worm.

This is the message identifying the worm (click on it to see a full size image), and you can read about this particular worm on the Mcafee site or the AVG threat labs site:

Collaborate 2012 – Day 4

Last day of Collaborate 2012 and Scott Spendolini, Sumneva, gave a great presentation on APEX. Only caught the beginning Jan Visser’s Perl presentation because of the distance to the Luxor from the Mandalay South Conference Center and anticipated queuing time for checkout.

We can now look forward to Collaborate 2013 in Denver, Colorado.

Collaborate 2012 – Day 3

Virtualization is important and Dave Welch from the House of Brick gave a great presentation of experiences with VMWare and Tier 1 databases. It was a comprehensive presentation, but the white paper was easier to follow. The slides were complete but the volume of information was a lot for an hour presentation. Well worth the time though.

Collaboration 2012 – Day 2

It seems the Titanic is everywhere, even inside the pyramid of the Luxor hotel. While the Luxor is within the Mandalay Bay complex, it’s about a half mile walk to the conference and a half mile back. We go by the Mandalay Conference Center’s aquarium.

Collaborate 2012 – Day 1

Collaborate 2012 started on Sunday but for me I began on Monday. I enjoyed Bob Burgess, SalesForce, presentation on shell scripting for MySQL Administration today.
