Krebs: I know who hacked Ashley Madison

Anonymous C0ward

Re: salted duplicate check

If salted hash is used, the salt values for all existing passwords are necessarily stored in the authentication database along with the hashes. So the check for same password simply salts and hashes the candidate with each of them and checks if the resulting hash is already in the database.

So you have to read every row in the table and do some computation on it, before inserting your single new row? Nice DDOS opportunity.

How do they tell how many users have the same password, if they're using salts, PBKDF etc and not just MD5 or SHA1? Weak.

The world .sucks at a minute past midnight on Sunday

Anonymous C0ward

What is .sucks meant for?

Because if it's customer service gripe sites, allowing trademark owners at all defeats the purpose. I don't think there's any fear of confusing it with a genuine branded site.

Relax, it's just Ubuntu 15.04. AARGH! IT'S FULL OF SYSTEMD!!!

Maybe systemd isn't Windows by the back door.

Maybe you don't lose your text-based log files. Maybe unless you're a real power user you won't need to do things differently at all.

*That makes it worse.* It needs to offer a significant advantage to be worth bothering to change. It is not enough to not be evil.
