Experience Africa’s oldest sound

first_img17 February 2004In a unique musical combination, the internationally acclaimed Imilonji kaNtu Choral Society, the Traditional African Orchestra, and Drumstruck are teaming up to present the African Sound Experience at the Market Theatre on 18-19 February.The project melds voices, drums and traditional African instruments in a way that has never been done before. Some of the instruments to be played on the two nights have not been played for decades, or are played in such remote areas as to be difficult to source.Soweto’s famous 40-strong Imilonji kaNtu Choral Society, led by director Gobingca George Mxadana, will accompany the uhadi bow harp, tshikona reed pipe, ixilongwe, kudu horn, mbira, marimba, drum, shaker and clapper.Composer and instrument researcher Anthony Caplan of the Traditional African Orchestra will conduct the performances, which will offer a unique opportunity to explore the depths of texture, power and diversity of African culture on Newtown’s stage.Seating is limited, and bookings are through Computicket.The Orchestra and the Drum Cafe, in alliance with Mxadana, Wendeen Lieberman of the Arts and Culture Trust, and Johannesburg’s CIDA City Campus, have set out to rediscover Africa’s unique musical legacy, and to fuse it in a celebration that is less about the past than a vote of confidence in the future.The project aims to bring together traditional instruments, song and dance to promote and preserve indigenous African music in all its diversity. It also aims to showcase outstanding talent, and to revive the sung and dramatic African traditions.The Drum Cafe, which started off as a corporate teambuilding and entertainment company, has expanded over the last two years and embarked on a range of projects aimed at educating the public in traditional South African music. The Imilonji kaNtu Choral Society, founded in 1983 and drawing its choristers from Soweto, is one of South Africa’s most prestigious choral groups. The choir has performed at music festivals around the world – as well as at the inauguration ceremonies of former president Nelson Mandela in 1994 and President Thabo Mbeki in 1999.Imilonji Kantu’s stunning rendition of South Africa’s national anthem is on almost every CD the choir has brought out, including:Ibuyile I’AfrikaListen to the anthem – MusicaBuy the album – MusicaBuy the album – Kalahari.netHymns – Songs of the PeopleListen to the anthem – click2musicAlbum review – click2musicBuy the album – Kalahari.netBuy the album – MusicaSource: Arts & Culture Trustlast_img read more

Microsoft gets busy on fix for IE watering hole attack

first_img More information: technet.microsoft.com/en-us/se … ity/advisory/2794220 CFR is described as a nonpartisan think tank focused on American foreign policy and international affairs. FireEye said the initial JavaScript hosting the exploit only served the exploit to browsers with an OS language as either U.S. English, Chinese (China), Chinese (Taiwan), Japanese, Korean, or Russian.Microsoft described the nature of the vulnerability as a “remote code execution vulnerability that exists in the way that Internet Explorer accesses an object in memory that has been deleted or has not been properly allocated. The vulnerability may corrupt memory in a way that could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user within Internet Explorer. An attacker could host a specially crafted website that is designed to exploit this vulnerability through Internet Explorer and then convince a user to view the website.”Outside Microsoft, security bloggers are referring to the attack on the CFR website as a “watering hole attack.” In this type of activity, the attackers identify specific targets and scout out which sites they frequently visit. Attackers then plant malware on them. As Kaspersky Lab’s Threatpost similarly explains, it is “where a website frequented by topically connected subjects is infected with malware hoping to snare those site visitors in drive-by attacks.”Symantec views the metaphor of a watering hole fitting, as “the attack is similar to a predator waiting at a watering hole in a desert. The predator knows that victims will eventually have to come to the watering hole, so rather than go hunting, he waits for his victims to come to him. Similarly, attackers find a Web site that caters to a particular audience, which includes the target the attackers are interested in. Having identified this website, the attackers hack into it using a variety of means. The attackers then inject an exploit onto public pages of the website that they hope will be visited by their ultimate target. Any visitor susceptible to the exploit is compromised and a back door Trojan is installed onto their computer.”Microsoft has responded with mitigations and workarounds. The company said the IE team is working on a security update but in the interim it recommended that IE8 customers block the current attacks by disabling Javascript, which will prevent the vulnerability from being triggered initially, and disabling Flash, which will prevent ActionScript-based heap spray from preparing memory such that the freed object contains exploit code. Microsoft said also that “disabling the ms-help protocol handler and ensuring that Java6 is not allowed to run will block the ASLR bypass and the associated ROP chain.” Microsoft is working on a Fix-It protection tool as well as security update. Users of IE9 and 10 are not susceptible to the attacks. “We want to reiterate the IE9 and IE10 are not affected and that we currently see only very targeted attacks,” Microsoft stated.

The company acknowledged the vulnerability in its Microsoft Security Advisory (2794220) published on Saturday. Reports about the problem pointed to affected users who had visited the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR) website. According to network security company FireEye, “we can also confirm that the CFR website was also hosting the malicious content as early as Friday, December 21.” Internet Explorer users are warned against Poison Ivy This document is subject to copyright.
