I think I'm going to need a bigger can of Raid!
How is this a fair test?
In the real world, you wouldn't necessarily know an attack is coming, or where it would be directed.
I doubt this "attack" will employ any techniques that the defending staff haven't specifically been told to prepare for.
That's not a slingshot!
That's a Hohmann transfer!
Well we know who built Stuxnet
I suggest that the governments affected sue the perpetrators from orbit. This kind of collateral damage could have been prevented had the original developers actually targeted their attack.
Lie detector? Galvanic skin response?
Someone at Google/Motorola doesn't know how the human body works apparently.
Re: "I need your clothes, your boots..."
And a urine sample.
EMP's? Just like in Red Dawn?
What about that game with the sonic screwdriver?
You know, that one you could get on Linux desktops. Where all the darleks chased you around the screen.
Someone must know what I'm on about.
Image hash database
Is this publicly available so that sysadmins can run preventative measures?
Highly developed organisms such as Register readers?
How exactly is this helping to fight "terrorism"?
Are the NSA really that interested in my high score on Plants Vs Zombies?
A person can set a schedule controlling the heating or cooling of his house.
I'm pretty sure I already have a device in my house that's doing that right at the moment.
And my oven already has a timer on it.
That's Theresa May for you.
She can't get her own house in order (remember that fiasco with her border staff just letting everyone through because they were "under staffed"), so she's very neatly trying to sweep the problem under someone elses rug.
Most landlords have a hard enough time maintaining their properties. They have neither the time, nor the qualifications to verify the identity and eligibility of someone to stay in the UK. Hell, if the Home Office itself can't figure out who's legally entitled to live in the UK, how is a landlord?
Re: Yup. That's me.
I am at work.
My code's compiling.
Nice to see America catching up to the rest of the civilised world.
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal" seems like a nice place to start. I read that in a declaration of independence somewhere.
Possessions are fleeting
And so it would seem, is data.
Better late than never Gov.UK
In future, I recommend closing the stable door before the horse has bolted.
Re: Maths fail.
Well done. Have .1 of a cake.
Re: Is that...
That's because anyone running XP 64-bit has to be a freaking wizard to get any drivers to work with it!
Re: Oh my
I full support the call for a George Takei Icon.
(even though George Takei is an icon)
That is freaking AWESOME!
And good to know that in a pinch, my HTC can be used as a bullet proof vest panel.
Yeah, you can guarantee that we're already being gouged by the current price fixing scandal that will only come to light in 2020.
£2 per journey?
Why so much? Is each pod equipped with a mini bar and a monkey butler?
I'd have thought that the President would have had better security
If they skimp on security to the point where a bunch of script kiddies can crack his accounts, I wonder what the rest of their security is like?
You could probably break into the White House if you know which rock they hide the front door key under.
Necessary computer skills and intent
Hang on. Hacker == Intent?
Is having the necessary computer skills really the same as going equipped to cause damage?
I wouldn't mind getting spam at all if I was paid for it.
I think that £1 per message would do it.
Quite possibly the hardest mouse in the world.
I bet he drinks Carling Black Label
Easy Access to Parallel Computing
Nvidia's CUDA is a great introduction to parallel computing. Recently, I've been looking at CUDA to do financial calculations. A problem that lends itself very well to parallel computing, as there are a lot of calculations that don't depend on the results of others.
Rather than go through each transaction sequentially, work can be divided up and farmed out to the graphics card and the length of the task is shorter by orders of magnitude.
No User Serviceable Parts Inside
Does the PM think that Zuckerberg himself is posting each individual video?
It would be "irresponsible of Facebook to post beheading videos" if Facebook were doing that. But it's not. It's a piece of software.
It is the [b]people using the software[/b] that are the problem!
Hiring convicted hackers
Would it not make more sense to hire the ones that don't make a habit of getting caught? I'm no expert, but I'd have thought that not getting caught would be the defining characteristic that separates the skilled hackers from the regular ones.
Re: "It feels like a slap in the face"
Was she copying the Tulisa Contostavlos sex vid?
What would a god need with a computer?
Re: So far I've avoided goatse.
Be grateful that no one has shown you lemonparty yet.
How are children still getting access to unsecured computers?
I remember a time when there was a simple way to stop children from using computers that they weren't supposed to. There was a lock on the front panel that would disable the keyboard.
Once is careless, but three times?
Are they absolutely sure this is a mistake?
No Technical Details?
For all we know Google could be selling a rock that keeps DDoS attacks away.
Had a denial of service attack? No? The rock must be working then!
"posting status updates on the free content ad network"
"posting status updates on the content free ad network"
Now that MP's have stepped in to fix the problem
This whole thing should be cleared up nice and sharpish.
I'm sure that the Right Honourable Members of Parliament will tackle this with the usual skill and aptitude that they've displayed with every other IT related issue.
Re: Giant person-eating super-phages
When they get large enough to be visible to the naked eye, couldn't we just hit them with a baseball bat?
How many polite, competent network engineers does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Both of them.
Starting a cycle of revenge is probably not the best way to settle this issue once and for all.
Before pics are useless without After pics
Agencies seek to find the needles in the haystacks
Might I suggest that they use a magnet rather than a flamethrower to find them?
It didn't happen with Uplink
It wont happen with Watch Dogs.
Those spooks don't know what they are talking about.
