This is all old news
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44edsh6_LUc remember seeing all this 4 years ago and not one media company paying the slightest bit of attention to it
What if the NSA has black boxes in all ISP's
what would changing from a source with a black box to a new source, whilst ISP has it achieve ?
chickens come home for roosting
Sorry this needs to be pointed out - wasn't it a few years ago there were threats made that any person in the uk found attempting to use tools such as port scanners etc - would be locked up ?
I mean you can not tell people not to do something then a few years later turn around and say we don't have any one with skills that can do such things....
Middle management will be able to hold meetings and discuss the way forward
@ Daniel B. Re: Ye gods
The Java 0 day exploit is related to user's PC running Java, this means if you are developing java applications that require the end user to run Java Virtual Machine then there could be issues.
If you are developing Java applications that run through tomcat/jboss etc that require the user to simply have a browser then this is not as bad as you think and certainly nothing like the ROR 0 day exploit
eh reg where is the edit feature
ok it was fulish of me since this could be on any or either platform, I admit I like insulting windows :) since it is trash take it from me
Ahem what OS
Very good report with no mention of the shafter of all Microsoft from the s/w list i presume they mean Firefox running on windows ?
as I have always said its not the software but the underlying OS thats most at fault here. keep on trolling
ahem correction of myself
You know what why am I re-inventing the wheel here ?
Why should any ISP or infact any content provider change their ways?
Why do we even need another fat cat minister yet again to overlook and be the overseer of yet another thing?
Its quite simple and the solution is already out there its called AOL - They do parental control with kids accounts who go through content filters.
Rather than having a minister surely it makes sense giving parents the initiative to sign up and use aol (evil muhahahahaha)
I mean I for one as an adult with no kids have no use for their service but hey it look there is market its the whole of the UK with kids lol
Seriously if this is what they want nothing negative for the kids it would make more sense rather than trying to wipe out the internet slowly invest that money in companies such as BT muhahahahahaha to have this service.
Kids are now safe you can put out the light and go down the tappas bar......
Lets not forget what we are talking of here !
we are talking of kids searching on youtube and google for things like suecide..
If there was a dual network 1 for kids which filters for bad things then in theory no need to worry /touch the adult side of things.
I am going to be honest here - this as per usual is nothing to do with root cause if it was my solution would work 100% its more to do with monitoring and knowing your every move
so roll on phorm and all the imaginary middle management positions created to monitor the internet PFFFT (only in the UK)
once you have finished please ensure you tell us all I will be a planning a flight plan ticket = 1 way
Yep UK heads showing its understanding of the internet lol
The issue here is the internet is a large database full of good and bad, the UK wants to rewrite the internet (lets assume its oxford dictionary) and take out all the things that mean bad things (sex, drugs, gun ) so kids are safe... hmmmmm lots of points to argue about here but its not the issue
The issue is what the UK needs is two internets
Internet for adults and internet for kids
What you UK bods need to figure is really simple
Rather than harrasing adults and contents on the internet
1. You need to approach ISP's making two layer accounts
1.1 adult accounts
1.2 kids from the adults that will be adults soon
1.3 Define IP ranges for 1.1 and 1.2
2. Send these IP ranges to all the market hoggers Yahoo and rest of them
3, Get them to block normal internet from the kid ips
4, Get Yahoo and msn and youtube and rest to create new websites KID FRIENDLY (like youtube) i.e.
kidstube.com so when a kid from ip 10.0.0.1 hits youtube.com - they are redirected via policies to kidstube..
5. Leave us adults alone and rather than harrasing adults try to THINK.. OPEN YOUR MINDS
If you can not open you mind offer people with a more technical understand the jobs
You have to be an idiot to use insecure RF technology on something as important as passports.
Yep its like using your credit card on http (without the s)
Hacker could potentialy read all your Passport/Creditcard info just by sitting on the same train carriage as you ! (anything with RFID)
You do not need to plug it into anything its Radio Frequency ID....
@ all over 65
sorry no offense was made. It was just an example for people who think on a professional level and comment on this level rather than looking at the problem from someone who has basic knowledge :)
@ By Nuno trancoso & @ AC about windows install
You do not need a licencse to use a computer
You do no sit a test of compitency to use a computer
You do not break any rules by getting hacked .
AC about windows install when making your own Partition for documents and settings
What if you purchase pc from a shop with windows? does it come with seperate partitions ?
or how about when you do an install does it come up with clear consise questions about partetions etc a sepearte slot for boot seperate for swap seperate for home etc ? last time i installed windows this was not the case but then it was donkey years ago....
@ AC about my comment
"The risk is even less if you run your box as an ordinary user not as an admin, i've been running like this for three years with few issues (non secuity related), "
my experience from a windowsinstall the initial user is admin ! there is no requirement to put in a root password to install anything...
"ALL of them caused by poor software not Windows."
Ahem thats why ubuntu debian and all the rest of them have central repositories so there is no need to go to http and download 3rd party software which is the source of a lot of the issues...
Two main flaws in windows if you ask me.. This is not evident in Linux
Also 1 last issue - FS partitions Linux install ok if your a noob all goes in one but for me its always been things like home get own parition - so sure format OS partition as much and as often as you like - your data is safe unlike c:\Documents and Settings\Blah
"spaces in folder names is not clever either by the way"
Old windows techies backing windows again i see
I would like all of you techies to step back with all your advices comments on without firewall and NAT and all that nonsense.
Just imagine you are 65 computer illiterate and want to go online with you new pc.
Obvously it requires patching ? whats a patching asks the 65 year old ?
you the 65 year old phones provider gets on broadband and in the post is your USB dongle (since none of them are going to send you a broadband router unless you ar paying extra)
so the 65 year old goes online and in 4 minutes he is infected he spends another few months spreading infection deeper and further in OS.
MS should have done better than this by now.
for a start with all that profit (that don't go into no MS fanboys pockets) they could have created CD for online access so all people using the OS at all levels who sign up with a provider get this CD sent to them........
Secondly do they actually test any of their products before going live surely all thes excess open ports there should be a hardening package or go online utlitiy ? go through lock down ports not required..
No more advice for the bull of all OS's MicroShaft... sign up with us and we will shaft your day with lots of time spent on analysing why our OS sucks.
I have a dream and in this dream microsoft no longer exists. :)
Easy fix for SQL Injection
Ok, I admit to writing bad code not fully verified and I have so many fields all over the place that it will be a really long winded thing to walk through all compiled code/perl code etc and lock it all down.
Easy fix is Run Apache with mod security enabled - mod security will catch out SQL injection and not return anything back to user.
I have made some docs on how to enable it here
Problem is now fixed get XP and SP3 now !
yep install XP and make sure you have SP3 now this will fix all your issues, since you will be constantly rebooting your hacker wont get a chance to run anything
get a proper OS you windows bible bashers.
sure microsite is to blame
I never been a fan of billy goates and his fake software that he tries to enforce costs on you for running dodgy software in the first place..
but here is the thing.. if you go buy a car that ends up damaging your drive or the roads you would be up for compensation since its not doing what its supposed to be doing ie running on the roads and driving u from a to b..
If you move into a house and get broken into its not your fault that you moved into that house - insurance would pay back for costs and police would investigate the break in
so why is when microsoft produces badly written software that they have the cheeck to charge end users for it why cant they be held responisble for producing utter rubbish that should have been sent to recycle bin rather than production line.
Microsoft and its badly written system should ensure a badly patched PC can not do anything besides get the latest patches and get them installed prior to clicking on anything else !!
not flaming pointing out obvious here
David Eddleman I dont mean to start a flame war but FYI again
When you had Sobig and Swen (I presume unix spyware)
had you hardened your linux servers or was you running all ports and running as a server
you heard of lsof ? backtrack what app is using what port ? does windows have these nice utilities ?
further more did you try Se-Linux ? is there an equivalent on Windows ahh yes the new windows which will be MSDOS lol hahahhahahaha
Also Mr Eddleman and who ever else thinks its to with popularity
Lets take a step back lets look at an application
IIS Vs Apache
I know Apache is more used according to netcraft and yet most issues and site hacks are done on IIS even though apache is open source? (how is that rule apply here then ???)
Reality is you all make assumptions since oh windows gets attacked cos most people use it absolute rubbish - windows gets hacked cos microsoft produces absolute rubbish that they try to sell to you on a yearly basis if you dont buy it oh we dont support old version.
This is why they get hacked its their campaign of making money and their campaign to get the last pennies out of poorer people like the indians and chinese etc etc .. same goes for iphones etc
Its the hate they make for themselves
once upon a time
Google has lived out the good times its going down the evil route of MS and government..
Tracking what we all do
Easy solution :
1. clear all cookies and cache every closure or exit of gmail and use TOR to browse net
2. Stop using Gmail and google.
3. Use webcrawler metacrawler astavista the old search engines its time to revert lol
4. Let google loose its user so it can snoop the air that flies past their network
All snoopers are loosers and these so called amature terrorists gives the government and these organisations more reason power to snoop
So if you ask me yes the war is being won by the terrorist cos we have a little bit of freedom left and this is slowly erroding day by day
It might be soon to go and live in some caves afghanstan have no mobiles or electronic devices for them to snoop
Hey we might meet up with laden and all those billions of dollars he has in the caves and have lamb burgers for the rest of our lives lol
