The one cent thief that owns a Lamborghini

Aman Shah was a 24 years old bank executive on 1990 working as a specialist in Hock Hua Bank, Malaysia with an income of RM1800.00 at that time lived in a very luxurious life including 6 supercars that was affordable only by a millionaire.

His luck begin when he caught his fomer boss's attention that sent him to a computer courses where he learnt the skills to perform his operation. He then appointed to Head Of Department of SPEED processing (Electronik transfer system for fund and securities).

It was learnt that he perform his operation by transferring 1 cent every day from every account in Hock Hua Bank to a proxy account in another bank. His operation went successful with a sum of RM41 Million.

He is a supercar enthusiast, according to his friends, he was really fond to supercars since they were in High School. He then bought a total of 6 supercars including Lamborghini Countach,, Mercedes Benz 300L, Mercedes Benz 300E,  Porsche 928 S4, Porsche Carerra and BMW329I. He put all his cars in a supercar shows in June 1990. Sometime he took the most expensive Lambo for an evening ride.

His lucky omen fade away when he was interviewed by a local television for a daily morning TV show for his supercar  possessions. He was at that time resigned from his position in Hock Hua Bank proudly talking about his collections and the advantages of every one of them.

His ex-boss in Hock Hua bank also watched the TV show and raised suspicious on how his former employee with a RM1800.00 salary could afford to have a collection of supercars. He then rushed his auditor to perform an audit to all the transactions done or involving him. After satisfied with the proofs he got, he then lodged a police report in Campbell Police Station on 8th June 1990. Aman Shah was taken in his luxury condominium in Bangsar.

The police said that he performed his operation by transferring the sum of money from Hock Hua Bank's accounts to his bank account after breaking the security code. He was then charged with 4 allegations of cheating sum up to RM4 Million from Hock Hua Bank.

Aman Shah was found guilty and sentenced to 5 years jail. According to an ex-warden of the jail he was confined, he was treated as a special convict as he was assigned to office duty while the others were on other physical duties.

There was a rumor that he was invited to work with commercial crime department in Royal Malaysia Police Force. Nothing found on the google to verify the rumor. His operation was smooth because on 1990's Malaysia still use account book system which is updated manually over the counter. In nowadays technology his operation could never been succeed. Every cent missing can be detected in a blink of eyes.  That is the story of a 1 cent theft.

Ancient gold bars found in ex-Japanese war tunnel

gold bar sabahGold bars reported to have been found i a Japanese WW2 war tunnel tunnel in a plantation owned by Sime Darby in Sabah, Malaysia. News spread out in social media including findings of gold bars etched with the word Sumatra , dated on 28.08.1941 and 999.9 However the truth on the news cannot be verified as none of the plantation's worker admitted the findings. Rumors said that all the gold bars had been taken by the workers hence no gold bar found anymore in the tunnel

The spreading news said that they were working on usual routine at the plantation when suddenly a portion of the plantation collapse and revealed a tunnel which is as big as a 10 tonne lorry can go inside the tunnel.

"I have called the plantation's manager and the villagers around the plantation but it seems no further information known" said Susilo Sumarto , Kunak District Officer.

Superintendant Abdul Rashid Abdullah, Kunak District Police Chief Officer said that a special team has been sent out to the area but they found no gold there.

Either the rumors are bluffs or the founders and keepers of the gold bars had sworn not to spread the story but unfortunately they have a whistle blower among them. I bet he or she must be the one with the smallest portion. In Malaysia, the law ruled out that it is illegal to keep anything found from the underground. This add up to no-one-verified-the-news act. Estimated value of a gold bar with 6.2KG is ~RM930,000 ~ USD$223,572 . Pheww. If you found something of that much value, do you hide it or keep it? If it was mine, I shall keep my head down, let the heat cool off then go to a friendly gold smith, divide it into pieces and sell it portion by portion.

CIH chernobyl. A virus that shook the world

Every old timer 'security enthusiasts' that
CIH Chernobyle
lived thru the year 1998-1999 have a sweet memory of a virus named CIH Chernobyl. For me myself, I have a friend of mine claimed to have a burnt motherboard after being infected by the virus. It's seems illogical but after full exposure of the virus and its behavior,  I admitted that my friend wasn't bluffing back then. The virus could infect the most popular o.s during that era,win 9x and it could dig and make way down to the bios chip ROM. In such cases, it can override the thermal proctection on the motherboard and was capable on burning the board. That's why I remember CIH Chernobyl,  is a virus that once shook the world.

60 millions computers have been reported to be infected by the virus and most of the cases are involving system bios damages with commercial damages round up to 1 millions dollar.

The virus was created by a student at Tatung University named Chen Ing Hau to challenge claims made by the proud antivirus developers of antiviral deficiency. Obviously, he won the challenge.

The virus was created on 1998,  first emerged and start spreading in 1999 thru the campus network by Chen fellow classmates. Then he apologized to the university and developed an antivirus together with Weng Shi Hao from Tamkang University.

The virus also known as the 'spacefiller'. It gained the name due to it's infection method to fill in the gaps in computer programs with its own code thus the file Size wouldn't increase avoiding detection by an antivirus (on those day, antivirus was not so popular).

Chen was never faced any lawsuit because no one ever filed a lawsuit against him and there was no crime legislation enforced in Taiwan during that time.Taiwan's computer crime legislation was written in consequence of the virus.

Among the biggest mislooked-overconfidence infection events associated with the virus including Yamaha Cd-r400 infected firmware distribution, a demo version of Activision Sin game and IBM activa shipped with the virus already infected the system.

On 26 April 1999, a dual payload of CIH was delivered with most of the infection happened in Asia. That was the time my friend's motherboard burnt out. CIH fill out the first 1024k of host boot drive with zero rendering the system could not be booted up and then attacked certain BIOS type. Both action impacting the host computer to be unbootable and most serious cases, the motherboard burnt out. Credit to CIH, methods for recovering damaged hard disk was created following this Event.

CIH Chernobyl have every honours to be remembered as a virus that shook the world.
