Re: Am I the only one...
The BBC are in fact working to deploy IPv6: http://generic.wordpress.soton.ac.uk/ipv6/2016/08/31/ipv6-council-meeting-october-2016/
Re: Am I the only one...
BT's and Sky's IPv6 deployments deploy /56 subnets to customers, and these are dynamic/sticky. So with the first allocation, you've got 256 /64s to play with, and you can instruct your router to request a new DHCPv6 lease from the ISP, so a brand new /56.
Re: Uh what?
Lawyer: "Your hard drive could have failed at any point, whether or not you were running Windows 10. Did you routinely make backups of your valuable data?"
Plaintiff: "What's a 'backup'?"
Lawyer: "No further questions, your Honour."
Re: can anyone explain...
The release of Chrome 56 is not just a desktop browser, it also includes updates to Chrome OS included on Chromebooks.
The speed change only affected users on a legacy 40Mbps down, 20 Mbps up package.
Re: I am happy
It's not just about government snooping - it's also about ISPs and other middle-men injecting advertising and other elements into unencrypted HTTP pages.
Would storing encryption keys of a smartcard help alleviate this attack?
After all, smartcards generally have no coils to whine...
Remember the three Bs...
...backups, backups, backups.
Re: Chrome's "Pinning" doesn't appear to work
Chrome on Windows uses the Windows certificate store, the same one that IE uses. Firefox, on the other hand, uses its own built-in certificate store. Hence, the discrepancy.
Segregate all IoT devices on seperate VLANs...
...with ports restricted to bare essentials - HTTP/HTTPS/DNS etc.
I'm sure that's perfectly achievable on regular consumer home routers...right? ...anybody?
Coming soon - Cisco to offer CCNP in Juniper.
Take a high shutter speed photo of your own wee and you'll see that it's droplets too.
I remember Mythbusters covered the 'Peeing on the electrified railway' myth once, and busted it on account of the fact that unless you literally piss like a horse, the stream will break up into air-insulated droplets well before it hits anything electrified.
Re: re-reporting the daily mail?
Front page tomorrow: SLITTING YOUR THROAT INCREASES YOUR RISK OF SEVERE HAEMORRHAGE BY 100%!!!!!
Why not create a system image...
...on backup media, then rollback to that if you're not happy with Windows 10?
If they aren't encrypting data...
Then perhaps they don't sanitise inputs either. To paraphrase xkcd:
"Hi TV'); DROP TABLE SearchQuery;--"
To see if your router/modem is running a vulnerable version of RomPager, run Wireshark and access the device's configuration page.
Look for a HTTP/1.1 200 OK packet, inside that will be listed the server version, eg:
Server: RomPager/4.07 UPnP/1.0
Which suggests my modem is vulnerable, bugger. Time to get a different one methinks. Good job it's separate from the router.
Then again, would my modem even be reachable from the internet if it's running in PPPoE bridge mode? Wouldn't the PPPoE-encapsulated packets get sent straight to the router without the modem even bothering to look at them?
CAn't see this doing too well in court.
Just had a quick look at the Comcast Residential Agreement (Link)
Section 6.b.1. says that Comcast can send code updates to your router at any time they like; that these updates can change, add, or remove features; and that these updates can be used to provide features not just to the customer (i.e. you), but also others. It also explicitly mentions this WiFi hotspot function when explaining this.
I am going to guess that this agreement will be the defence's 'Exhibit A'.
Perhaps they should also program it to respond to...
...'do I have ebola?'
These security keys aren't flash drives. They are just secure ICs. Yubico's models, for instance, have non-upgradable read-only firmware so are not susceptible to BadUSB.

Re: Confused about IPv6 vs. NAT.
You're confusing NAT with a firewall. IPv6 doesn't need NAT but you can still run a firewall on a gateway/router that drops unsolicited inbound packets. The only thing you miss out on with IPv6 is the absolute joy of configuring port-forwarding.
The update fixed the broken NFC on my Nexus 7 2013, at last!
Re: RFC 4941
While your computer is using privacy extensions it should in addition still maintain a MAC-derived address (at least, it does on Windows - I don't know if the same is true on Linux or OSX). Can you force your SSH client to use this interface rather than the temporary ones?
Re: What IPV6 really needs
I have a 6in4 IPv6 tunnel running on my home network. My router (Asus RT-N66U with Merlin firmware) is running an IPv6 firewall which automatically drops any unsolicited incoming traffic. I can set rules in the firewall to permit traffic to individual hosts (e.g. I could have multiple hosts all with their own port 80 services). All my hosts retain end-to-end IPv6 routing without any of that NAT nonsense.

Typical Daily Mail, they have crime on their minds so much that they can't stop thinking about it!
You could make the password as incriminating as you like and it won't put you in jail any longer - you still need to crack it to get to the real evidence. The only dumb mistake he made (apart from molesting kids) was choosing a password vunerable to a simple dictionary attack.
Also, Gary Glitter was dumb enough to take his laptop in for repair at PC World...

Now there's an idea - a universal Bluetooth LE remote with an touch-sensitive e-ink display!

Re: Falkland Islands
I bought a PAYG sim when I was out there in 2008 - the phone number was only 5 digits long, including area code!
Following a particular digital path?

No, the quickest way to solve it is to show it to an autistic child in the form of a puzzle book!
A Google search suggests that the Belmont transmitter is broadcasting Multiplexes ArqA & ArqB on low-power until 23 November 2011. At this point, in addition to the power increase, they will be switching frequencies so another retune will be required.
Android iterations are named after desserts in alphabetical order - 'FroYo' is short for Frozen Yoghurt. Do try to keep up!
I actually bought a new Radeon 6950 at the weekend that came with a code for Dirt 3 which I redeemed on Steam, so I'm hoping I don't get affected by this, even though I can reasonably prove my purchase.
'Manual Update' means that the app's system permissions have changed and that your consent is required prior to update.

'Comical to game-progress-halting changes'
Sounds a bit like the FADE anti-piracy technology Codemasters have used (notably in Operation Flashpoint), which causes the game code to degrade over time, affecting AI, physics, weapon accuracy etc to the point the game is no longer playable.
