Re: Requires a valid nonce?
Stop watching BBC.
A nonce is a type of data bit identification in IT security and other types of technical systems. It is a number or other data variable that is used only once.

Still, being defaced by ISIS is probably something that has to be taken more literally than would otherwise be done.
Leaving a friend's car unlocked with the keys in the ignition in a dodgy neighbourhood is not only only stupid, it's probably a crime in itself in most places.
Most places in Amurrica only, I hope?
Oh, sorry, I forgot - it's done to show up the companies with weak security, right?
I don't think so. They just look for low-hanging fruit and shark the dangling bits.
What, was the 20,000 euros just to cover bandwidth costs and associated stuff?
They seem to make it quite clear that is for cigarillos and carribean vacations.
Stormfront member, please.
OTOH, the original "Maxwell Equations" were rather less pleasant to look at than today. It took a serious refactoring effort during the next 25 years:
It could be argued that these equations got their start 150 years ago this month, when Maxwell presented his theory uniting electricity and magnetism before the Royal Society of London, publishing a full report the next year, in 1865. It was this work that set the stage for all the great accomplishments in physics, telecommunications, and electrical engineering that were to follow.
But there was a long gap between the presentation and the utilization. The mathematical and conceptual underpinnings of Maxwell’s theory were so complicated and counterintuitive that his theory was largely neglected after it was first introduced.
It took nearly 25 years for a small group of physicists, themselves obsessed with the mysteries of electricity and magnetism, to put Maxwell’s theory on solid footing. They were the ones who gathered the experimental evidence needed to confirm that light is made up of electromagnetic waves. And they were the ones who gave his equations their present form. Without the Herculean efforts of this group of “Maxwellians,” so named by historian Bruce J. Hunt, of the University of Texas at Austin, it might have taken decades more before our modern conception of electricity and magnetism was widely adopted. And that would have delayed all the incredible science and technology that was to follow.
I was shocked to find out I knew nothing of Maxwell's existence
Did the curriculum stop after Newton?
A constant which interestingly wanted to STAY constant, whatever the galilean reference frame.
Sounds like an Internet of Things thing where people freshly inducted into the industry learn as they pump out the unripe boxes for the consumers.
The names, phone numbers and street and email addresses
So they downloaded the phone book?
We had harder hacks at uni.
At least the "unknown root exploit" is of interest.

"Mine not bitter, your not bitter ... better get the case on twitter!"
HOW a Greek restaurant can survive for years with bad food, badly stored etc ... ??
Just waiting for a bailout, obviously.
Even more, how does that company even survive? Do they have a special relationship with Big Money/The Queen/The Mob/YouGov?
I guess it's more "lightweight" (regarding space and indirect calls till you hit the hardware)?
I am at the point where "exciting" makes make throw up...
Not at all. The sucking sound of funding is in the multitrillion wars (that's factors of 1000s above what we are talking here). Fusion is doing quite well with its own Big Item projects.
That would mean mathematical consistency of Einstein's theory is a necessary and sufficient condition for Einstein being sure not having made mistakes. Wrong on both counts:
Mathematical consistency of the theory might exist (insofar as one can be sure about that), but it might be totally useless in physics, describing a world that is not this one (e.g. a 2D+1 spacetime).
Mathematical consistency or even soundness of the theory might be missing but it might well be very useful in physics (most of physics is dirty tricks, fast haxx and formulae that look good for unfathomable reasons)
You need that telescope.
the public expectation is that we take action
Officer cracking one off while checking Gargle Street View for instances of disorderly behavior. Film at 11!
This remind me of the SciFi story where a marketing experiment is run (in a [spoiler]groundhog-day closed-world environment[/spoiler]) to see whether a good, fat heckling by megaphone at 0600 to BUY THE FUCKING FRIDGE YOU SHIT followed by an apology a bit later will actually result in more sales. I can't remember who wrote it though.
Great fill-o-suffers rarely work together in the same band.
people who'd populated their phones/mp2 players with music rather than relying on Streaming services
One would expect a spontaneous sharing experience to occur, no?
WTF are "windfall profits"?
And damn you Dabbs for making me watch this Youtube stuff in disbelief.
The buggers can't win
Probably the best meta-moan in the world.
Anarchist's Cookbook causing controvery? Yeah, it's 1995 again! PARTY HARD!
Seriously, my nostalgia will make me dig out ANCIENT PRINT COPIES OF WiRED. STOP IT, you dumb politicians!
Unless specific governments take this over I can't see how you can regulate it.
As governments are to all evidence a fat part of the problem, this would be a case of destroying the village in order to save it.
Israel's secret nuclear program.
About as secret as a wart on a witch's nose.
The americans are still cleaning up that superfund site in Apollo, Pittsburgh. Incidentally.
Whole crusades have been won by HAM BOMBARDMENT! And Yurope's "Common Agricultural Policy" is heavy into channelling taxpayer funds (current or future) to BIG HAM, the consumption of which will VERY SOON be made less appealing by the ham-fisted application of sin taxes ("to ensure continuing health of the populace", natch) to these fatty goods with artificially depressed prices. Coincidence? I THINK NOT. I CAN SMELL THE BACON!
You can ONLY trust the math.
The implementation around it, however, is open to suspicion.
It's not really peer-to-peer but Uber is sitting pretty in the middle.
Thus the pear-shapedness.
In other considerations, how can an app be illegal if it basically reduces to twitter.
So you are smarter than NASA?
No, but I'm not stupid enough to believe that all of physics from the ground up needs to be rewritten because some idiots didn't pay attention in class when error bars were explained.
Amazingly, that kind of thing can be tested anywhere, consistently and we have the math to describe it (even if it did take von Neumann to write the primer). That "NASA" retardation, not so much.
Oh, you think that bullshit is serious and not clickbait?
"I VIOLATED CONSERVATION OF MOMENTUM ALL BY MYSELF! YEAH!!!"
Let me laugh even harder.
If it's on Arxiv, it probably could not make it through peer review at a Journal.
You completely misunderstand the nature of Arxiv (and vixra, for that matter), as well as peer review.
And the incentives behind peer review.
Go sit in a corner, dunderhead.
(Damn, I'm too serious again. Time for "venerable ancient bum" icon).
No refunds under any circumstances is their standard policy.
Never give in to terrorists' demands!
Yet another one in permanent ethical beta.
Maybe obfuscation math is looking at prime time. Unless outlawed, of course.
(No, I have no idea how that would work, but it sounds like a good premise for a SciFi story written in the 80s where describing the current state of the world would have meant using the adjective "dystopian". John Brunner, anyone?)
“Your business partners are accountable to their governments, and you can’t expect them to put your interests above their own or those of their government.”
The government's interests trump those of the citizen and corporations line up behind that?
I think Robert O. Paxton wrote about that in "The Anatomy of Fascism". So did Günter Reimann in "Doing Business under Fascism".
In other news, people are a-ok with providing data to the Zuckoberg/NSA complex and to cloudify stuff on companies established on the "4-eyes" compact.
They also vote in the same dumb fucks who a currently driving the car to the next wall at breakneck speed every single time.
The experiment has failed.
We should convince the neocons that ad agencies are actually SECRETLY FINANCED BY IRAN and trying to DESTROY ISRAEL.
That would fix things in a jiffy.
April fools was yesterday.
But ethical day is everyday!
In Googles defence, Ethical Manner (TM) is still in beta.
That would be bethical behaviour ("bebe"), then?
Ever hear of browsing using your phone? wifi?
I hate to break it to you, but these systems actually use cabling to bring the data to whatever exchange point it needs to go to.
hope you never work in my building
Is that the one where unicorns magically radiate data to the destinations, powered by bionic carrots up their arses?
Go to bed, PHB!
Differently abled are always good targets for politically incorrect jokes.
Do you want polonium with that?
silicon dioxide which as well as being carcinogenic
It's sand, eejit. Do you smoke it or something?
Organic stuff needs to e transported faster as it spoils faster, requiring more fossil fuels to be burned.
Actually, the main burning happens in the car driven by punters to the big food logistic centers known as "malls" and back to their conapts.
Additionally, experiments in my fridge consistently show that standard pepperonis and chilis decay *way* before organic pepperonis and chilis and the organic ones look better to boot. I don't know why, but there you go.
As a story-teller and realiser on the small screen, Gerry Anderson was pretty good. As a scientist, not so hot.
It's Space:1999! Gerry doesn't have to explain shit!
...but then you have to know what to look for in the logs.
So, you can log all you want, you'd better have actual people to read them.
Logs are not for people to be read unless something goes pear-shaped. In that case, they are used to find out what went wrong, find the weakest link and possibly identify the patsy.
Yesh, but there were no large mammals (or wives complaining about what's stuck on your shoes NOW) back THEN!
Don't you mean "reducing profits".
Amazingly, my torrent has no geo-whatsits.
I await your clarification with the greatest of interest (or possibly a mild curiosity).
Thank you AC for trying to keep the discussion on agreed-on rails and keeping crimethought off this here forum as an unpaid public service.
Oh, no wait: Fuck you and your shit.
