Virgin Media blocks 'wankers' from permissible passwords

hazzamon

Re: Merde!

The password, as far as I can see, is filtered by this javascript on the user's local machine, prior to being hashed and sent to Virgin.

When will Microsoft next run out of US IPv4 addresses for Azure?

Re: Confused about IPv6 vs. NAT.

You're confusing NAT with a firewall. IPv6 doesn't need NAT but you can still run a firewall on a gateway/router that drops unsolicited inbound packets. The only thing you miss out on with IPv6 is the absolute joy of configuring port-forwarding.

Slow IPv6 adoption is a GOOD THING as IETF plans privacy boost

hazzamon

Re: RFC 4941

While your computer is using privacy extensions it should in addition still maintain a MAC-derived address (at least, it does on Windows - I don't know if the same is true on Linux or OSX). Can you force your SSH client to use this interface rather than the temporary ones?

Re: What IPV6 really needs

I have a 6in4 IPv6 tunnel running on my home network. My router (Asus RT-N66U with Merlin firmware) is running an IPv6 firewall which automatically drops any unsolicited incoming traffic. I can set rules in the firewall to permit traffic to individual hosts (e.g. I could have multiple hosts all with their own port 80 services). All my hosts retain end-to-end IPv6 routing without any of that NAT nonsense.

From the Daily Fail link...

'12-sided design will resemble coin last used before decrimalisation in 1971'

Typical Daily Mail, they have crime on their minds so much that they can't stop thinking about it!

GCHQ was called in to crack password in Watkins child abuse case

hazzamon

You could make the password as incriminating as you like and it won't put you in jail any longer - you still need to crack it to get to the real evidence. The only dumb mistake he made (apart from molesting kids) was choosing a password vunerable to a simple dictionary attack.

Also, Gary Glitter was dumb enough to take his laptop in for repair at PC World...

A Google search suggests that the Belmont transmitter is broadcasting Multiplexes ArqA & ArqB on low-power until 23 November 2011. At this point, in addition to the power increase, they will be switching frequencies so another retune will be required.

I actually bought a new Radeon 6950 at the weekend that came with a code for Dirt 3 which I redeemed on Steam, so I'm hoping I don't get affected by this, even though I can reasonably prove my purchase.

'Comical to game-progress-halting changes'

Sounds a bit like the FADE anti-piracy technology Codemasters have used (notably in Operation Flashpoint), which causes the game code to degrade over time, affecting AI, physics, weapon accuracy etc to the point the game is no longer playable.
