First of all this is my first post after long period of time becouse i was busy with my exam and other schedule. Mean while i had won two tech quizes of state level here in india.

Secondly, i am not sure where to put this list so i am putting it over here. If MOD's feels to move please do it.

Lastly, I would also acknowledge the soure of this article which was originally posted in forums of governmentsecurity.org by Conix.
