Indeed. See my post above for my thoughts on how this will be a new circle of hell.
Sadly AC has it right.
Being forced by your car to sit attentively so it will work is going to be the newest circle of hell.
Too tired to drive? Bad luck. Disabled & can't drive? Bad luck. Not sitting & passing the twice per second "paying attention" eye tracking check? Bad luck. No "auto" driving for you!
Even better, take control yourself, touch 31mph, get automatic tickets from the black box.
It really is going to be the most horrendous of futures.
And that's before you factor in the fact that *every single vehicle you see* could be a reprogrammed kill-bot, actively looking for your number plate in order to crash/ram/crush.
Hardly a fair statement, that. Android is the Apple iOS version of Linux, written by Google!
Well, it makes sense to not risk another few officers, but then, just like the guns, every civilian will demand their 2A right to a killer assault robot, & then it's going to get even messier...
And how's that working out for you now?
The pound has slumped against the dollar, but not so much against the euro, because we dragged that down with us. The FTSE 250 has sort of recovered, but mostly because the pound has dropped so far. The entire Brexit "winners circle jerk" has vanished - even farage has given up, having "won" without the slightest shred of a plan.
I've already seen prices pushed up - steel? We barely make any, so all this won't save that industry, and your hand-hewn artisanal coal that you are planning on selling for 3x the price of everyone else? Well, that's not going to save you either.
It's like a dog chasing a car, then, one day, it catches the car, and gets it's jaw ripped off.
That last paragraph is this whole f'd up mess in a nutshell.
This is what Vexatious Litigant laws are for. And this nice fellow is the absolute definition...
Like that doesn't already exist. You just can't see it because of Copyright.
Not sure they'd go to the Supreme Court, let alone Appeals, just for publicity. They aren't Donald Trump.
Might I suggest not actually just shutting them down? Block their traffic. If there's immediate crashes and screams, it's a sub-second fix! If no screams, then after a short while shut them down.
It's just a ransom to be paid when demanded *some unknown time in the future*
More secure? My parent's brand new Win10 laptop was ransomwared by the 4th day, I think because it had a "free" trial of Office and hence a macro was run.
(Proper "Yours files are in the same place heavily encrypted" ransomware, not the Win10 update!)
So, right, M$ are nicknamed that because they love the big bucks. Yet they are tricking and forcing people to take their product *for free*.
So when and how will they be taking payment? Because they will.
(And clicking a 5* review for "Calculator.exe" isn't going to be enough.)
Surely someone could make a "HDD" that simply takes SD cards in an array, & handles the wear leveling at a higher level (as well as the in-built on the individual cards)
You plug in a few ?Gb, ??Gb or ???Gb (micro?)SD Cards, and the controller, in the form of a regular HDD sized thing, gets on with it. Uses JBOD architecture or some fancy RAID, according to your tastes, & presents as a standard SSD/HDD.
Completely removes a single point of failure too as if the controller dies just put the SD cards in another controller. If any one card dies, you get an alert and you swap that card.
This already exists, doesn't it? (It's too simple and obvious)
Just avoid 3Gb drives - they appear to have far higher failure rates than 2 or 4Gb disks.
(This was tested across loads of disks, there's an article on here somewhere about it I think)
I use different manufacturers now. Once had a RAID that died, & the second (paired) disk died literally two hours later during the restore! Cue data recovery required.
Because SMART isn't. YMMV but I've seen discs that don't work, yet SMART says all is well, & I've seen disks with dodgy SMART results that have worked for ages after.
And how often does Microsoft patch their version? Are you sure that the dozen or so MS lawye^wcoders are up to the same standard as the hundreds of eyeballs looking at OpenSSL? Or do we think that because the source is opaque there aren't any of these often very subtle bus?
Couldn't he have just done it "because he could"?
Well, that's the theory at least.
And besides, adding more domain names is weakening security - without certainty, people are more likely to be unconcerned with a slightly different domain name.
(How do I edit? Never figured that out!)
However, when downloading 55 million voters' data from the Philippines (apparently including fingerprint data!) with terabytes of data (which is what would get you done as proof of the crime!) TAILS can't help you. Because you have to store it somewhere.
Yes, TAILS. The Amnesiac Incognito Live System. Designed to leave no trace of booting and routes everything through TOR.
Still leaves certain clues behind but a great starter for ten.
It's a subtle distinction in practise though. Extra-specially in rare cases.
The government simply has you arrested due to a new policy of being tough on alleged hackers, then while you sweat they change policy to be tough on *whatever they find out about you*. (Which affects no-one else - you're the only person accused of hacking the DoD and this week we are being extra tough on hacking them.)
For an example, look at the entirely disproportionate sentences handed out to the 2011 rioting kids! Far harsher than actual criminals ever get. Because policy was changed. But the government *didn't get involved in any individual case*.
*Simples then.... give him the PC back. If he logs into it, they own him. If he doesn't, than he probably did forget it.*
After it has had whatever they've secretly done to them done? Plug it in, get password wrong a few times, then go smash them with a hammer. Then burn them.
(Maybe scan with a microscope and publish photos of very subtle electronic tampering before you do?)
And he was dumb enough not to be logged in as someone else? Wow. Double dumb.
If you claim to be an engineer and have never used a spanner in your life, you likely aren't much of an engineer, truth be told.
If you've never had the inclination to follow the life cycle of your product from cradle to grave, & play with, or even build, the machines that make your machines, you'll never be best at what you do.
It's like saying you are a computer guru but never in your life touched a hard disk.
I bought a new HDD and did a full system backup, only to then find the thing was faulty on checking it. (You do check your backups actually work, right?)
It's lost money - no way is a copy of my entire electronic life going back to the supplier. Accounts, key codes, etc.
Surely if you buy a decent company as a going concern, you *can* just leave it to carry on?
Only if you have to should you, as an investor, get involved in "wreck or rescue" operations.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
It takes longer than that to get into Google+!
That'll be why they're forcing people who can't afford electric or a phone line to claim their benefits via the Internet then!
Fortunately, this film about predicting the internet will likely be available on the internet.
There's easier ways to infect cars? Is he kidding?
The garage will *literally* come collect your hacked car, infect their systems, & bring it back!
No idea why some fool downvoted your comment!
There are indeed specialists who work with companies and, in my experience, non-profits, to get grants. And they are effectively self-funding, operating on a no-win, no-fee basis. They wrote their costs into the grant.
Tax payer money hard at work, at least keeping some in a job!
Shocking. He may have used *email* to contact someone. If only you'd given him your phone number instead.
This isn't a new threat.
What's clever here is the way they've used the mouse commands as a way in, & also that manufacturers have aimed for cheaper models' compatability so allowing defeat of the more expensive systems.
It's like not encrypting your backups because of the overhead!
Just because they only tested 17 models, and found 15 broken, doesn't mean lots of other ones aren't also similarly flawed.
It costs a lot to test gear that you have to buy retail yourself - at say £50 a set that's over £800, & lots of keyboard/mice cost more than that!
@AC: well, perhaps millions of people are looking, but only a few will find what they seek. And get paid.
Building on the foundation above, I see what you did there.
I was waiting for:
"Neo & Trinity die (warning: spoilers above)"
Sadly, you are right.
Seriously, it's a ATM. You could get a group to base one on an Arduino in a long weekend hackercamp!
The last ATM I used was so lagging on the touchscreen inputs that it wasn't fully usable.
2 factor gets trotted out all the time, but how? The cheapest imaginable device is free, on a user's phone for example, but the cost of 99% of users not installing the app and not using your site/store is still too high.
And sending a 2 factor device would cost millions at least, for 99 million users.
2FA isn't the answer in 99% of use cases.
You can get an idea of the actual data rate every time Big Ben sounds.
The Scottish MPs think it awful how they all have to get up and wander to a lobby for herding and counting, instead of just pressing a button!
Personally, I prefer it takes them all day to vote on two things. Slows them down from banning what little fun there is left!
As others have said, how can LastPass decrypt with no backdoor?
I'm out. Sub is up in 5 days, so I'll be going to something else.
At this rate it'll be an encrypted text doc in Dropbox!
Indeed not. Anyone unhappy can give their Facebook shares to me, right now, for a full refund of the initial IPO price, + 10% as a goodwill gesture.
The whole abuse of the legal system in respects to the Naked Rambler is horrifying.
Yes, pretty much the only man in the country who wants to be naked all the time has had what is essentially a custom law (for that's what an ASBO is!) created just to create offences when he is naked.
Unlike the British legal system, you couldn't make it up!
I've been suggesting people donate the fantastic exploding devices to their local hackspace/makerspace.
Get someone sensible to check it out at least, lest you burn the house down!
Probably not at £8 a shift like they can pay a call centre in India for (UK) overnight cover, no!
This will allow LIDAR on a chip and possibly tiny projector systems too (though whether the human eye can see the projection will depend on several factors like wavelength and having a lense)
Pretty major breakthrough.
