PrettyPark is a "Trojan Horse" #yizkorbooks

Phrases1@...
 

PrettyPark was not specifically aimed at Jews but is an equal opportunity
abuser. The following is an explanation. PrettyPark is a Trojan horse
unleashed in the summer of 1999 and spread as an e-mail attachment. Once
executed, it causes users to log onto an Internet Relay Chat (IRC) channel
when they surf the Web. The IRC channel is capable of downloading files and
extracting personal data such as passwords and credit card numbers.

A program that appears legitimate, but performs some illicit activity when
it is run. It may be used to locate password information or make the system
more vulnerable to future entry or simply destroy programs or data on the
hard disk. A Trojan horse is similar to a virus, except that it does not
replicate itself. It stays in the computer doing its damage or allowing
somebody >from a remote site to take control of the computer. Trojans often
sneak in attached to a free game or other utility. For information about

Ah, the joys of geography.

If the statement below (recently posted on JewishGen Digest) is true, then
why do my father's immigration papers state that he is >from Lemberg, Brody,
Poland? Was Lemberg considered the Province and Brody the town?

Finally received ship manifest for my GM who got to NYC in 1890. They
list Lemberg as her last residence. OK , where was Lemberg in 1890?
She also said she was >from Austria. My early data has her >from Brody in
the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Anyone have any good ideas why Lemberg not
Brody?
Lemberg is the Austrian name of Lwow Lvov Lviv, nowadays Ukraine but
then part of Galicia (actually it's County Capital)

Blumberg from Courland to England #courland #latvia

Estel <estel.eforgan@...>
 

Dear Courland group,

I have traced an ancestor, who came >from Courland to England in 1834. He
was granted citizenship in England at that time. He was a very wealthy
merchant, whose name was Ludwig Alexander Blumberg. The trouble is, there
is nothing to say whether he was Jewish or not, although I think he
was. Is it likely that a Jewish person could acquire so much wealth in
Courland at that time? Would he have had to give up his faith? Does his
name sound like he was Jewish?

I would be very grateful for any help. I am a newcomer and hope this
enquiry is appropriate.
