They should also remove all the known root certs that are used for MiM attacks, many from important cos, yet they refuse to do so, and delete forum threads about those certs...
So.. why lose company time(money) solving this?
It is mostly dead for us and our customers.
With half the money, we can do so much more with RHEL, Jboss, mysql, mongo, etc, or go the IBM route, AIX, DB2, websphere, also cheaper (but not half the cost).
Only the systems that were made for solaris and would be to expensive to test (as they are very complex) are still on Solaris/Oracle, or hosts.
Most of us knew that it was a way better proposition to use linux.. long ago, but as we had to sell the idea, we kept selling Aix/UX/solaris/NT
They really havemore than 2100 ppl working on android phones?
I doubt it.
You don't need more than 300ppl to design and test them.. and keep them updated.
I must have jumped into wrong conclusions.
I guess they are selling drives to the likes of backblaze, etc.
Me, I used to buy a new drive for my personal computers at least every two years, for each of them, and beofre that, every year.
Not anymore.. I buy spinning rust for capacity, not performance.. and capacity has stagnated.
Now I buy SSDs.
I have relative confidence that my HDD will store my data, and I know I will be able to get my data back, as I have a good backuo system in place.
My wife has a couple of Seagate HDDs in Raid 0, and had terrible backup till I took care of it.
So, the thing is: get a drive that is ok and have a good backup system on place.
So you can't use many Seagate drives, or WD green drives (unless you want to tamper them, as you have to stop them from parking every few seconds).
I have one of those terrible seagate 3TB drives, inside a USB3 enclosure.
I am in my second drive as I had to RMA the first one.. and the one I have is marginal at best.. VERY slow access time for small files..
I use it for backups, so really not many problems with it, as I don't have anything there I dont have elsewhere, but still terribly slow, and if you put it at 100% after a few hours it starts to mark sectors as defective, have read errors, etc. I RMAd the first drive, and the new one (really new, I checked the SMART data) has exactly the same issues.
You an recheck all the sectors and they are marked as ok.. but it is very slow.
If you put it inside an enclosure, if they get to 100% load for some time they will be marked as defective for sure.. I don't know if something heats up inside, the firmware is wrong or the head positioning is inaccurate.. but they are, in my opinion, not fit for purpose.
As long as they can only READ, it is OK, but if they re going to WRITE then the problems come..
I have been using it for years, and it almost works for us.. now that we are all at least on W7.
Errr, no, it is way more safe than doing it otherwise. It is a SILENT ALARM.
You would know, but the attackers probably wouldn't.
their firmware might be compromised, or maybe the nics are compromised.
they opened them, therefore they installed something: not safe.
And should be illegal everywhere.
Have one computer with 2GB ram,. and a radeon 4850, 1 GB ram: 100% GPU use on youtube, very slow. Used to be ok.
i5 laptop, 8GB RAM: ok. High GPU use
Why should I pay money to an artist because I want to have his music (witch I DO pay for) in my cellphone as well ?
They aren't offering any kind of service or good, they just want the money for nothing (and I'm not movind colour tvs..).
We could have discussions about piracy and compensation, but that is different. Here we are talking about charging twice.
IOPS per thread is waht you get if you go to SSD.
I prefer to have the flash inside the server, way faster, but a pain to manage.
Would you rather pay for cancer treatment in the US or the UK? In the UK NHS will pay it..
Dairy road was.. a bit "rowdy".
Right now it has improved a lot, and tearing down the distillery and making flats has improved the zone a lot.
I have some friends living there and it is very nice.
Also, if you go a bit towrds the coop and not in front of the cemetery, most shops are still open.
Live migration from one server to another. Windows Server 2008.
As a server side VM I think it is ok.. the only problem I see is licensing.
It means the consumers can fine badly behaved companies.
¿Are you serious?
That would be VERY expensive, as you would have to test all the binaries.. and support them.
When I still made C++ and VB programs, we just compiled for the minimum processor we expected as target. That would be a 486, but with Pentium div bug "fixed". And I'm talking up to 2001, compiling for 486 or Pentium.
This is also the reason why now, at the end of 2014, many programs are still compiled in 32bit: It will work in both 32 and 64 bit worlds, and you just haver to check one of them.
Maybe the price of your beloved 32TB server is a bit steep... and if it crashes, you lose the info...
I disagree with Firefox. They think that marking as invalid root certificates from CAs that are known to provide bogus certificates for MIM attacks is not ok.. and have tried to erase that discussion.
Therefore, I just don't trust them, and I prefer my data to be stolen by google...
It's just that CREE has eaten them...
There is money in making leds.. you just have to produce at low cost with good quality.
So now 9,9" chinese windows tablets are THE thing...
It is their fault.
It is fundamental to check for duplicates before charging, and to lock the account before charging.
After that, you have to check for duplicates.
The reason is many systems can guarantee that the transaction will happen AT LEAST ONCE (tibco, I'm looking at you), it is your responsability to check that only one is valid.
Happened to me once, years ago, won't happen again.
If we are listening to a broadcast, instead of a ipv4 broadcast we could have ipv6 multicast.
Or, you could use a mix of multicast and unicast.
Anyway, using high compression, the problem is (mostly) solved today... the only benefit of using DAB is that you bandwidth.. and it is going to be less important with time..
Talk is cheap.
Please provide a link for a radar than can track AND attack (lock) hundreds of high speed targets.
There are NONE.
Therefore, if you can't track and lock on them, exactly how are you going to intercept them?
wrong.. for 90$ I can get a quad core, 1GB RAM, 8GB Flash, Sd card, 5" IPS screen, scratch resistant mobile. android 4.4
That is more than good enough, and even cheaper.
If you need good quality GPS/Glonass and 8 cores, and 64GB internal flash, you can get that for 300$.
Problem is, formats like FLAC o Apple LossLess (ALAC) require a lot of space.
1378KB/s is what a CD has.. FLAC (and ALAC, monkey audio etc) can compress to about 670KB/s
Apple offers just 256KB/s bitrate... this means capacity would be reduced by a factor of 8.
A we know that Apple memory is 2.5x more expensive than regular one.. so... no FLAC.
As for SACD, 96 Khz 24 bit.. well, they can't even bother offering decent quality!!
And I am un 4.4.2.
I just got a chinese phone.. same Mediatek processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB flash, bigger & higher resolution screen, and cheaper.
They aren't a monopoly.
With 90% marketshare, Microsoft IS a monopoly in desktops and laptops.
the trick was gaining a big market share and then charging oems per system delivered.. even if it has linux.
therefore, you rest assured thet they will offer Windows, as it is "free".
If they insist on linux, you just have to cut them from "marketing expenses share", etc, and they will pay 15/30$ more per laptop.. effectively halving their benefit on cheap computers.
Intel did even worse things, but all of this is history, you can check it.
Note; I do like windows 8.1, and paid for it...
Let's be fair.
If Scotland doen't get the pound and 10% of the bank of England, etc, you can't blame them for not accepting the debt: you get both or none!!
It has its advantages: speed, reliability, etc.
But, if you have functional problems in your system and you have to repair some "non expected use cases".. it is a real pain.
CAs are also known to to provide false keys to "law enforcement and similar clients".. so statesalready have the keys for MiM attacks..
As for Mozilla... well, they decided not to ban CAs that participate in MiM attacks by security forces, delete posts in forums about it, etc.
While I agree that at some point they should all be 2048 bits.. they are trying to fix something that is NOT the problems. The CAs are the problem.
The thing is... they are illegal where?
If a judge has determined that they are illegal, I agree with them: they should be removed in that country.
If they complain that a website is illegal because it allegedly contains illegal material and/or links to such material.. no way... a judge has to decide.
It shoud be 5-10K per person.
I can tell you that driving over a cyclist on a straight road is cheaper...
Waht they are saying, is that they have no idea how they got the user/password, but they do know that they patched the systems for heartbleed on JUNE.
He have to dump current certs.
Have 3-4 of them, on an independent country (swiss ppl maybe?), and if they leak the certs, dump them.
Otherwise, this "https" shit is that, shit.
Many big cos spy on their employees because they have systems that use bogus certs for MiM attacks. Law enforcement? They also have that. Some crooks also have it, as it really is in the wild.
So, me can't rely on todays CERTs. Fix that, and use certs for everything, and it is a done thing.
Is it worth 300 quid?
I will weight more.
The base model has an OK pricing. I would say maybe even good.
The problem comes with the "upgrades".. it is plain stealing...
My missus dropped water on her laptop, and I was able to repair it buying a new (all integrated) keyboard on amazon.. 18 quid as it is an OEM part (the "equivalent" was just 8). Good luck with that problem and an Apple laptop.
Also, my mother in law has had many problems with her iToys.. apple refuses to honour US battery recalls in europe, for example.
If you get into their computers, the very least you can get is how they operate.
Then, you can also infect their computers so their systems place nasty targeted malware into sticks, etc etc.
It WILL get to the systems.. just ask the Iranians..
As you say, there are a TON of solutions.
Either complete incompetence, or someone decided to get a little money on the side.
I would say that automated testing (including regression) is not working ok for them... and that makes you wonder what else is slipping...
It is very difficult AND expensive to corectly test everything.. and if it is for me (an we have limited interfaces and SW collisions) the OS is even more difficult...
Anyway, you are just proving what I guessed. Thank you for it!
The AAs and AAAs I use today are all low discharge rechargeables,
Not only they a rechargeable, but last double with low discharge currents and 4x or more in high discharge.
They cost about 2 pounds each.. and if you have a good charger, that is the way to go.
But he had the gut to say himself that he was a bad person.
If you must, please read this lively discussion we have some years ago:
This discussion should be DEAD years ago.
NAT66 provides NOTHING.
Just give an IP and block incoming internet traffic, there, solved it for you.
I would say it came from Georgia.. but not the Georgian government.
