Researchers at Kaspersky Lab are claiming to have found proof that the writers of the Stuxnet and Duqu malware are one and the same, and are warning of at least three new families of advanced malware potentially in circulation. Security experts have been debating if the two code groups are by the same authors, but the evidence …
Phew, one less code-base to support and troubleshoot at work
perhaps you mean backup files - you know when the editor makes a backup copy of 'editedfile' and names it '~editedfile'.
Maybe they thought of that? They're not idiots, after all...
In that case it would be ~deditedfile.
Check your HTML codes...
The ~ symbol is a tilde, at least in Spanish (and by extension the HTML codes...)
I assume there's a patent in the works for the methods used by the code? It seems like everything else in the software world is patentable these days so why not this too?
Researchers at Kaspersky Lab are claiming to have found proof that the writers of the OpenBSD and NetBSD are one and the same.
Researchers at Kaspersky Lab believe they've found gold at the end of the rainbow... and expect you to pay for it.
Like a Lego set?
My god, Hollywood Hacking is real? You just assemble a bunch of coloured blobs on screen into a multiheaded worm to sniff out digital footprints and blah blah blah?
Only the results look more like the work of an insane electrician on acid than anything built out of Legos.
The GUI goes beyond lego blocks but becomes a poorly animated nematode with teeth eating CPU's and battling AV's rendered as human cannon fodder, because audiences are apparently unable to understand anything without brightly lit stupid cartoon metaphors
with the right editor C++/python/ruby/smalltalk template programming can be exactly like that. I went to a developers conference 6 years ago where such an editor was demonstrated. It was like playing tetris with drag-n-drop elements. The code in the backend was horrendous to look at though, which I suppose kind of explains the size of modern malware.
Sadly this seems to be the case these days - the first competent assembly language programmer to start writing malware will probably destroy Western Civilization as we know it.
Fortunately for Western Civilization,
competent assembly language programmers are still paid enough to not want to deal with malware (unless, that is, they are specifically hired to develop it - in which case the proper title should be "spyware", except that title is already (improperly) taken by commercial spyware, which is often crappily built.
A speical thanks...
... to the Holy alliance of the US and Israeli Governments for developing Stuxnet in the first place, allegedly, due?
