So the companies might stop trading
I suspect that some of the people behind the companies are probably already setting up or running new companies doing the same old things.
The only way to be sure is to nuke them from orbit
I think it probably is UK only due to the fact that the entry form has no field for Country.
Hopefully data protection has been thought about or we can look forward to a society like portrayed in the film Gattaca.
Infinite Improbability Drive?
I thought a good hot cup of tea is what you needed for interstellar travel.
Yep, an IBM Power 575 supercomputer http://www.niwa.co.nz/videos/fitzroy-niwas-new-supercomputer
Not in the top 500 list of supercomputers though.
Re: the whole message
The rest of the output should have been the phrase "Legalise Marijuana", however due to a bug in the virus it never actually displayed that text but would crash and freeze your machine instead.
As I recall the bug was when it attempted to draw and ASCII art Marijuana.

Or an Apple response "You are pressing it wrong"
Re: Two words about Satoshi Nakamoto...
"I rather agree that more crypto currencies could arise"
There are already other crypto currencies, e.g. litecoin https://litecoin.org/
In New Zealand the Xbox One is guarded by sharks
And no, they don't have frickin' laser beams attached to their heads
Hopefully they will remember to password protect the flag as well.

Surf over to chrome://settings/passwords,
Click on a starred-out saved website password and click on "Show";
Rinse and repeat down the list.
Voila, you can see his or her passwords in plain text.
Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock
But can it do Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock?
Re: No ISO?
There are ISO's available for the Windows 8.1 Enterprise and Widows 8.1 Embedded from MSDN.
In fact if you are running Windows 8.0 Enterprise the upgrade does not appears in the Windows Store.
All energy eventually becomes heat
So he is proposing to capture sunlight that strikes the moon, convert it to energy and then pump it down to Earth? All energy eventually becomes heat. So unless other power generation on Earth is retired and replaced with this energy coming from the moon (not going to happen), then he is adding more heat to Earth. Ever heard of Global Warming?
The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress
Sound like they are trying to create Mike from The Moon is a Harsh Mistress who is a HOLMES IV ("High-Optional, Logical, Multi-Evaluating Supervisor, Mark IV") computer that also developed a sense of humour.
Re: Dujeychugh jagh nIv yItuHQo
Yes I got that too, and it's auto-detect of Klingon doesn't work either, it usually thinks it is either Hungarian or French.
A bit of client-side malware is needed
If you need some client-side malware to exploit this, why would you go to the trouble of decrypting SSL traffic when you could just have your malware capture the information before it is encrypted?
Photos ^H^H^H^H^H^H Videos
or it didn't happen.
key value sore?
Sounds like a open wound to me.
(That typo is supposed to read "key-value store" as per later on in the article).
She might also have been objecting to the barcode containing a hidden number of 666.
Don't believe me? Do a search in your favorite search engine for "number of the beast barcode"
Re: The Marching Morons by Cyril M. Kornbluth
Yes, Cyril M. Kornbluth did write a short story called "Little Black Bag", I haven't read it though.
The story is available as part of the Gutenberg project.
The Marching Morons by Cyril M. Kornbluth
"The Marching Morons" is a science fiction story written by Cyril M. Kornbluth, originally published in Galaxy in April 1951
It describes a world where intelligent people having less children than dumb ones and hence just getting out-bred, and without natural selection eliminating enough of the dumb people before they can procreate (e.g. earning a Darwin Award) the same genetic concept applies.
So this theory is hardly a new one.

Re: Whats the Beatles record label got to do with all this?
And when the name dispute got taken to court, agreed never get into the music business.
Then broke that agreement by launching such products as the iPod & iTunes and got taken back to court again.
But he emphasised that there were things on the internet that "any normal human being would be offended by".
Implying that anyone who isn't offended by the things he finds offensive isn't normal? I find that offensive!
Re: Posting the list to pastebin as we speak..
I'd say he was joking/trolling.
No sign of that list at pastebin (yet), I've checked.
Re: Time to move to voiceprint with spoken PIN.
I think it wouldn't take long before the Trojan programs would then record you speaking the PIN and send it of to be re-used. Even if you make it a one time PIN they could put together a sound file with the stolen PIN if they had enough samples of your voice.
Bing sucks soo much..
"Try also to search for "microsoft security essentials" on Bing using IE. The first two links are malware sites. If you use Firefox it behaves differently"
I tried it on both IE and Firefox, and the only difference was introduced by Ad Block Plus. Without Ad Block Plus Firefox also showed same site adds as IE.
There are a few that I doubt are legit (a bit of Google search on the names makes them very likely to be malware site).
"to monitor and tack space debris"?
What clever scientist worked out a way of tacking objects in orbit to the fabric of space?
Is this too obvious?
I would think the obvious solution would be to allow only the active in focus application to get feeds from the Gyroscope & camera, the same as they only allow the active and in focus application to access the keyboard buffer.
This is no suprise
Many webmaster have seen all sorts of bad traffic originating from the amazonws for several years.
Search for "amazonaws.com plays host to wide variety of bad bots" to show a thread that has been going since 2009 on the topic.
Where spammers get your email address from
Spammers source their target e-mail addresses in various ways
1) Harvested from websites (see proof at Project Honey Pot http://www.projecthoneypot.org/home.php )
2) Harvested from Domain Registration information (I get some SPAM to an e-mail address I've only used as the contact for my domain).
3) Dictionary attacks (trying different names at a Domain)
4) Compromised web mail accounts (harvesting their address book etc.).
5) Dodgy sites that sell the e-mail lists
6) Compromised personal computers (harvesting their address book etc.).
7) Harvesting e-mail addresses from mailing lists
8) By compromising databases that contain e-mail addresses.
Do a Google search for "where do spammers get my email address from" and you will find many pages that will list those and more.
