Nvidia fixes hole that turns PCs into remote-control toys for hackers

mark?
FAIL

"The vulnerability allows a remote attacker with a valid domain account" - aka what the rest of us call "a local user" (which makes this flaw a lot less serious)

30 days?

MS didn't say 30 days - the media did.

MS rated it as BELOW 30 days (e.g the exploit will be found asap)

Firm at heart of biggest oil spill spews toxic web attack

Stop

To SQL inject or Not, that's the question!

“We don't know exactly how the compromise happened but as the attackers were able to upload the exploit files to the server it's not a SQL injection attack (which usually involves redirection to an external server),”

Well, it IS possible to upload code through SQLi.

SELECT something INTO OUTFILE 'backdoor.ext'

Groundhog day: more Sony breaches

mark?

Meanwhile in Indonesia...

"• Indonesia – This attack seems less serious: a page was altered on Sony Music Indonesia’s Website, and in response, the site has been closed."

How is this less serious? If your able to alter a page, then what stops you from running a local exploit to gain root access? $ony whole infrastructure sucks, so with root access to one of the servers, you can probably get root access to the rest of the boxes...

Hacker swipes details of 4m Pirate Bay users

Hacker ?

He is a script kiddie, not a hacker.

He got access to a mod account and used the account to get more access. You could only exploit the system with mod+ access, so if people (mods) just start using good/better passwords, then this would never happened.

XSS?

There was no cross-site scripting flaw. It was a html injection flaw!

You could NOT execute JS code on YouTube visitors, but you could use the "<body onload=CodeHere>" it was possible to do "bad" stuff to Justin Bieber fans :P
