Google's Chrome to gag noisy tabs until you click on them

Infernoz
Thumb Up

Good, but I use SRWare Iron and firefox, rather crappy install location Chrome snoopware.

I'd be damned nice if Mozilla would 'steal' the idea of sound icons on tabs and gate all auto-play too, because I curse /any/ site which auto-plays anything; fracking, arrogant, retard web designers! Auto-play is just as pathetic as the ancient HTML flash tag.

Boffins promise file system that will NEVER lose data

Infernoz
Facepalm

(Open) ZFS is pretty damned good already

ZFS is paranoid about hardware and connections, and can have multiple layers of redundancy and storage; so why the need for yet another file system?

No system will never lose data if bad enough stuff happens locally, this is why sensible enterprise solutions include replication of data between multiple data centres too.

You've been Drudged! Malware-squirting ads appear on websites with 100+ million visitors

Infernoz

It sites want to use adverts, keep the content safe or watch revenue fall off a cliff.

My suggestion is that all major sites and advert funded sites must only support secure HTTPS requests, and browsers must only support secure HTTPS requests in/from HTTPS pages, including via redirects; that way safe-site white-lists can be enforced in depth via HTTPS certificate management, so hopefully make hijack or redirect exploits much less effective.

Obviously any browser plugin version which does not abide by the above suggested browser HTTPS page restrictions should also be blocked by the browser, including possibly Flash, Java and Silverlight.

Oh course I use content white-lists extensions, plugin etc., only naive, lazy or stupid people don't, including for corporate intranet sites with WTF active requests to external internet sites and/or use of Flash!

This is the fatal flaw of corporate, searchable 'social' media

It is insecure by default, even if security is bolted on via HTTPS, because the intent of the APIs is social (insecure) by default; like, duh!

If you want details to be secure, don't ever put them on any corporate (negligent for moar profit) 'social' media.

Nothing is free, /everything/ has a cost somewhere to get or use!

A close shave: How to destroy your hard drives without burning down the data centre

Infernoz

Drilling, encryption, abrasion, solvents, boom.

I tend to use a large drill bit with a cordless Li-ion drill, and drill a couple of holes, but that requires having the drive top accessible and manual use of a drill, I then completely dismantle the drive and often add multiple scratches across the platter surfaces too. Destroying all the big chips on the drive PCB would be a good idea too, to destroy any data, including calibration and configuration data. Yes, someone may be able to recover some platter data, however the holes, burrs and any scratches would probably challenge or destroy drive heads.

Other possible physically destructive solutions include:

* the rapid injection of aggressive de-greasing solvents mixed with a little abrasive dust via an inflow pressure valve near the edge of the spinning platters, while there are rapid head movements, to abrade the platter surfaces, with an outflow pressure valve to clear some used solvent; this would probably work best if the de-greasing solvents and abrasive dust was not electrically conductive, and may cause rapid destruction.

* a fuel air explosion inside the drive, which may be far more effective at destroying more platter surface than other types of explosive.

Another layer of security would be to have symmetrical hardware encryption (like AES256) with a unique key for every drive, so that when the cypher electronics is erased or burnt the key to decrypt the data is permanently lost.

I think what is needed is easy inital security setup and /not/ by wireless!

Say a specific physical security connector which /all/ wireless devices needing security must support and a security device to carry one or more security data containers to upload to the devices, rather than stupid button press security binding over wireless.

UK.gov wants to stop teenagers looking at tits online. No, really

Infernoz
Facepalm

Oh dear, are they still this ridiculously hypocritical!

Most babies will have already have had intimate experience of a women's sex organs from being born, so it's a bit late after, and I assume that most women are smart enough to breast feed their babies too, which 'shock, horror' children may see in public... What about cleavage in low cut dresses and bikinis, are they going to try and censor these too?

This contradicts the whole point of sex education and the UK age of consent of 16; some children will already have some intimate knowledge of other sex children before 17, seen other sex Mammals or have done relevant Biology, so WTF!

I think the mockery of Japanese sex censorship in the current running anime "Shimoneta" is also timely mockery for the whole UK sex censorship farce too.

Another very good reason why script and adblocking is smart, and not only 'selfish'.

If even some sites advert streams are malware compromised, then why should anyone trust any advert streams on any site, including a sites own content?

Even own site domain advert pages pages may just be replicate external content of dubious security, so it can be smart to block this too!

I even block some other 'normal' content which I regard as visually offensive or distracting clutter.

I've even seen active internet content referencing by HTTPS corporate intranet site pages, including metrics i.e. so cross-site risk just waiting to happen; so shame on these insecure web designers!

SOHOpeless: Security stains on Honeywell's Tuxedo home automator

Infernoz
Facepalm

Re: The problem isn't IoT by itself

The main problem here is Honeywell were grossly incompetent in its implementation and negligent for connecting a security system to the cloud; it significantly increases the attack surface for no real benefit and I bet the video content was uploaded or stored insecurely, from the users point of view, which would opens another security fail which maybe much harder to fix!

It is uncalled for smearing Java Web Developers, Mr Arrogant who probably just thinks he knows security. The problem is, not-secure-by-default API and framework designs, and programmers who don't know how to do security properly, including correctly using security features in existing APIs. Web security, cryptography and data security are easy to get wrong, /in depth/, if you haven't had enough specialist security training or have dated knowledge; a web service may look secure but may still allow inappropriate data in and/or out which can allow deeper exploits e.g. for bounds, scripting, OS, database etc.

I won't buy any IoT kit until I see security taken seriously and a mature IoT ecosystem, with cloud use locked down tight so that the cloud provider only sees encrypted data which they can't decrypt or MitM attack!

Not only is this stupid, carbonation even looks harmful

I have not seen any overall evidence that AGW is proven beyond a reasonable doubt, so this looks just a possibly more expensive way to source CO2, of dubious quality, for the consumer fad for carbonated drinks.

I've seen suggestions that consuming /any/ carbonated drink can be harmful to health, especially if drunk during a meal, because it can interfere with the digestion of food molecules including by stomach acid, digestive enzymes and gut flora, thus cause malnutrition, allergies, fat gain, inflammation and disease. Most carbonated soft drinks also contain unhealthy amounts of sugar(s), toxic artificial sweeteners and other harmful chemicals, which are more reasons to avoid them.

Beware, too many food and drink companies care more about profits than your health, and have been proven to use bad science, even deliberate misinterpretation of science, and other deceptions, to back harmful products (e.g. Cereal grain products, low fat foods, most vegetable oils, sugars etc.); many governments have also been compromised, and /still/ give bad dietary advice despite all the recent science!

On yer bike: Hammerhead satnav for cyclists – just don't look down

Infernoz
WTF?

What an impractical monstrosity

My flat commuter bicycle handlebar has only practical hardware on it including an Exposure front light mount and a Garmin GPS/speed device, both of which need to be near the centre of the bar, so no room for this monstrosity, especially not in front of the handlebars because it'll get in the way of most front lights and probably be swamped with light by them!

The static and rippling LEDs may be too distracting and make an accident more likely, especially at night with no obvious allowance for an unobstructed front light; no I don't rate under handlebar front lights because these can be obstructed by gear and brake cables. This might be more practical if the display was split in two so that it does not hog valuable space close to the centre of a handlebar, and maybe included indicator lights for other road users to see too.

I've seen other Kickstarter bicycle stuff appear too but quickly dismiss most of it as impractical or bad design, even if some may initially look interesting.

So much for rainbows, Zuck: Facebook staff still overwhelmingly male and white

Shock, surprise .. NOT!

Most women just aren't interested, so these quotas are futile; they'd rather work with people than STEM stuff.

See: "The Gender Equality Paradox - Documentary NRK - 2011" (found via ZeroHedge)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5LRdW8xw70

Basically it shows that:

* Females have different conception and sex chromosomes, and different hormone ratios, which makes them noticeably physically, psychologically and behaviourally different from males, even as new born babies!

* Females mostly only do stuff they like less when it helps them to better survive, breed and raise children e.g. in developing countries.

* In counties like Norway where there is enough wealth and freedom available, females gradually migrate away from doing stuff they like less to stuff they like more, even with radical feminist attempts to stop or reverse this, the same with men; so typically a greater proportion of men are in S.T.E.M. based jobs and a greater proportion of women are in people based jobs.

BT: Let us scrap ordinary phone lines. You've all got great internet, right?

Infernoz

Fine if they provide /proper/ FTTH and a battery backed up, fibre, wired phone facility etc.

If BT want to drop POTS, I want them to:

* replace my Copper POTS cables with FTTH cable(s), with redundant fibre just-in-case

* provide a trickle charged Li-ion (no NiCd or NiMH!) powered fibre, wired phone facility, for when a mobile phone is not available or usable.

* provide a decent, full speed, secure FTTH modem/router (e.g. a Draytek one), which can handle decent connection traffic without crashing or crawling; so not the pathetic Chinese rubbish they provided for FTTC VDSL.

* have built-in connection quality heartbeat and error signalling in the street fiber cabinets and fibre phone facility, so that BT promptly know when a FTTH cabinet, home port or home connection dies, is faulty or is suspect, so that I more rarely ever have to talk to Indian support drones or have to take time off for useless home visits by BT engineers.

* provide reliable triple digit Mb/s bandwidth, like proper Broadband countries do!

* support IP6 to home already and require that resellers do too!

* stop charging me for stuff I don't use.

Why are you so brain-dead as to suggest sanctions on China when the corpocracy which took over the US government and others shipped most of the goods manufacturing and jobs to China, so that the US is now a parasitic dependant of China!

So where will all your goods come from then, stupid? Is it sinking in now just how stuffed the US is?

Bill Gate is a corporate vampire deserving no respect

I forget to mention that I see Bill Gates as a sack of excrement for expecting workers to work extra hours for him to more value a business and for his numerous other documented offensive ideas and actions. Corporatism is always wrong, and most corporate executive pay is plain insane and completely unjustified.

I don't care how much of their trust fund an obscenely rich executive donates, they should not have so much that they need to fake-guiltily buy 'popularity', and the funds can end up spent on things which turn out to be bad, which due diligence would have revealed, if they even care.

Re: US management - confusing hours worked for productivity

There is a rather nasty effect called "Diminishing Returns" which not only means that you become less productive as you get tired, but can easily flip to negative productivity with avoidable mistakes which you then have to spend extra time fixing later (if you notice them in-time and can figure out a fix) *, get stressed (can harm health), and reduce your creativity because you are working so hard that you body and brain don't have enough down time to digest problems and devise solutions. This only gets worse as you get older!

* If you don't notice tiredness caused mistakes, the cost to fix them can quickly escalate, especially if built into a product; this a well know gotcha in software development and engineering.

Caffeine should be used in moderation too, because it is quite a crude stimulant which will bite you when abused.

There is also something called a work life balance where you should recognise that you work enough to finance your life, not live to work, the later is pointless and will harm you even if you like your work.

Everything is insecure and will be forever says Cisco CTO

Paris Hilton

And one of the most idioticaly insecure ideas is IoT, without an strong emphasis on security

Too many IoT devices have really quite pathetic security including stupid system design, that includes many routers! This is quite blatantly because of rushed bad management, which I've see the consequence of in commercial product I've had to spend ages iteratively rebuilding securely!

I look and throw my hands up in horror at how stupid and sloppy the IoT system designs are, so no NEST, or various other proprietary controller appliances for me! WTF is the Nest remote mains powered for? It should be a low power, battery powered, wireless (not WiFi) mesh terminal for smarts in a /wired LAN/ central switch box!

All IoT should only talk via an easily upgradeable hardened gateway server device, not directly with a remote internet server, otherwise it will eventually become an open insecurity puss filled sore!

OK, they're not ROBOT BUTLERS, but Internet of Home 'Things' are getting smarter

Re: This is just stupid

My new Bosch one (from John Lewis) saves a lot of water and power, has load of programmes (including /fast/ ones), lots of options, is piss easy to operate, quiet, tells you how long a programme will take before you start it, how long it has left to go and beeps when done; all for about £100 less that the LG one, let alone the other rip-offs listed!

The thing which really needs IoT is central heating and cooking kit, but with proper security and a physical heating on/off flip switch.

Most central heating controllers are still stuck in the pathetically archaic single zone model, including most commercial IoT ones, including Nest; mechanical radiator thermostat valves only partly improve on this and need a wasteful fixed bleed radiator to bleed pressure until the central heating water pump stops! We should already be able to easily buy affordable prioritised /each/ room-zoned variable temperature programming using automated radiator valves and radiator water flow sensors, with a smart central WiFi and BlueTooth 4 controller designed to dynamically and safely use any appropriate radiator(s) as a full pressure bleed until the central heating water pump stops.

Re: All your pizzas are ours

Indeed, scenarios like this /will/ happen if the security is not properly sorted out /now/, including pre-planned support for later firmware/hardware updates for improving security. This is why I'm loath to buy much IoT kit currently, especially anything which needs a dedicated internet server to be usable.

My internet enabled weather station is my only IoT device and locked down by my router firewall from accessing anything but a single weather site on the internet.

Possible exploits for IoT devices may include:

* a central heating system which chills or cooks you, or deliberately wastes energy while you are out.

* a washing machine which is programmed to badly wash or dry your clothes, even ruin them.

* a tumble dryer which is programmed to waste energy, ruin your clothes, cause other damage or a fire.

* a cooking appliance which is programmed to ruin food, waste energy, cause other damage or a fire.

* an internal sensor(s) used or appliance programmes used to detect when the best time is to steal stuff from you or just spy on you for other nefarious reasons.

* an electronic lock(s) which is hacked to let thieves or other nefarious people inside.

* an appliance becomes unusable because your appliance wireless, IoT hub, router or broadband is broken, or had a hacked firmware update..

I'd need a seriously good reason to allow any device which uses UPnP or manually open internet ports, because that could easily become a massive security risk!
