New ransomware EternalRocks found New York: EternalRocks, a new strain of malware, has been identified by the researchers that targets the same vulnerability that wrecked havoc worldwide by 'WannaCry' ransomware, a media report said. EternalRocks exploits the same vulnerability in Windows that helped WannaCry spread to computers. The malware includes far more threats than WannaCry, making it potentially tougher to fight. Like the original ransomware, known as WannaCry, EternalRocks uses an NSA tool known as EternalBlue to spread itself from one computer to the next through Windows.

After meeting the families, Amit Shah pasted a sticker relating to party's expansion programme, "Pandit Deendayal Jansatabdi Karya Vistar Yojana" on the doors of every house, as a symbolic gesture to show that the party has completed its 'publicity campaign' in that particular house.

Zonal system forces govt to put recruitment on hold PATAN AFZAL B ABU Hyderabad: In a major disappointment to job aspirants, the Telangana government has decided to put on hold the recruitment of zonal and district cadre posts in all departments till the issue of abolition of the existing zonal system is resolved. After the bifurcation of Telangana, Chief Minister K Tejas Express makes ﬁrst trip Mumbai: The Tejas Express, India's ﬁrst highspeed train, made its ﬁrst trip on Monday from Mumbai to Goa. The luxury train took 400 passengers on the eight-and-a-half-hour journey less time than the Janshatabdi. The train was revealed to the public in Mumbai on Sunday. The bright yellow superfast train promises a ﬂight-like experience on the track at less than Rs 1,500 a ride.

Telangana to get its own bull a la Ongole Hyderabad: Thanks to the conservation efforts of local tribals helped by NGOs, the 'Nallamala Poda', a species native to Mahbubnagar in Telangana, will soon be recognised as special breed of Telangana. It is estimated that the state has around 25,000 such bulls. Bred mostly in four mandals - Amrabad, Achampet, Mannanur and Lingal -- bordering Nallamala forest, the Nallamala Poda also called as Thurupu has not been registered as cattle breed.

Veeraiah requested the BJP president to take steps to free them from the clutches of ﬂuorosis and ensure that they get safe drinking water. Another farmer, Yadaiah, said it was unbelievable that a big leader (Desa Adyakshudu) had come to his house and enquired about their problems. No big leader had so far visited my house, Yadaiah said. He said he was also happy that Shah had lunch with the villagers. Later addressing the meeting of booth-level party workers in the village, Amit Shah said that it was shocking to know that though the Central government had launched the scheme of construction of 4.5 crore individual toilets under the Swachh Bharat scheme, the state government had not implemented it in this village. Many people are not even aware of it, he said.

The data will be forwarded to National Bureau of Animal Genetic Resources in Karnal, Haryana by Telangana government. It will be registered as Telangana's ﬁrst cattle breed by the end of 2017, on the lines of Ongole breed of AP,” said Sabyasachi Das of WASSAN, involved in physical characterisation. This bull which was tamed by local tribals has the capacity to cope with harsh climatic conditions and evade any wild attack by sensing from as far as 2 km. Moreover, this beast is mostly known for its capacity to work on ﬁelds for about 12 hours and to identify the water sources from huge distances. “This rare cattle species also known as Mannanur are being reared mainly by Lambada and Golla communities, in and around Mannanur forest areas. After realising its potential, the local communities formed a Nallamala Poda Gav Lakshmi Sangham and came forward for physical characterisation process for registaration,” said M A Saleem, president Conare, another NGO working on the project. The Sangham now has more than 100 members, who feel that the Nallamala Poda is for Telangana, what Ongole bull is for AP. Continued on P4 Chandrasekhar Rao announced scrapping of the zonal system in the recruitment of government jobs and a Cabinet Sub Committee headed by Kadiyam Srihari was constituted. Two zones have been in existence in Telangana. The old Adilabad, Karimnagar, Warangal and Khammam districts come under Zone V and the re- maining six districts – Hyderabad, Ranga Reddy, Nizamabad, Mahbubnagar, Medak and Nalgonda districts were covered under Zone VI.

Continued on P4 MODEL SANITATION CITY Gates Foundation to aid fecal sludge management ADEPU MAHENDER Warangal: Warangal could well become ﬁrst ‘Model Sanitation City’ in the country with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) is all set to establish a Resource Park to deal with the fecal sludge management. This comes in as a huge opportunity for Warangal which clinched 28th place in the recently announced Swachh Survekshan-2017 rankings to climb the ladder further. At a time when Greater Warangal, which has around 2.2 lakh households, is making rapid strides towards open defecation free (ODF) city, the other problem lurking behind its success in the near future was disposal of fecal sludge. Against this backdrop, for the ﬁrst time in the country, thermal treatment process is going to be used for the fecal sludge management in Warangal. Thanks to the BMGF which came forward to fund the Resource Park project with the initiation taken by the Administrative Staff College of India (ASCI). Bengaluru-based Tide Technocrats will provide the technology support for the project. Thermal treatment is regarded as the best in fecal sludge management compared to the biomethanation and other organic practices that are in vogue. After segregation of fecal sludge and water content, both will be treated separately. The fecal sludge is treated at 250 degree centigrade to produce biochar (charcoal) which is used as a soil amendment. The Greater Warangal Municipal Corporation (GWMC) will provide land for the Resource Park. Though the park houses the thermal treatment plant, it will be developed like a green belt. It’s learnt that BMGF will provide Rs 1.50 crore for the project and it includes one year operational maintenance costs. The ASCI and the Tide Technocrats will oversee the maintenance of the project. Talking to The Hans India, Warangal Mayor Nannapaneni Narender said: “It’s a huge stride in the annals of the GWMC. The GWMC will sign a memorandum with the BMGF and the Tide Technocrats in the presence of Municipal Administration & Urban Development Secretary Navin Mittal on May 25.” ASCI city coordinator P Raja Mohan Reddy said the project will be functional before September end. The thermal process is safe and it produces no stink. The biochar produced from it will be used in the plantation drive and agricultural purposes.
