This day is celebrated on November 30th, as 30.11.1986 is the date of the first recorded mass computer attack, which made computer specialists think hard about security and protection.

Unclear/week/irrelevant thesis statement is one of the most often reasons for a revision. A thesis statement doesn’t only give an impetus to your entire writing but is treated as a sign of quality by professors and teachers. It should be clear, concise, relevant and well-structured.

It is a rather boring topic, but since we hate writing boring articles, we have invited the best and the brightest music stars to live through it with us. We bet, it will help you remember..
