Eh? CPU microcode updates can be done by the BIOS or the OS.

Noscript was updated to work with the new Firefox regime. Interface is not as nice as the previous verison, but it does work.
The problem here is that storage gigabytes are "short", 1GB == 1000MB. So the band has already had 1 gig and change!
Oddly enough, "Traditional alarms are just switches, wires and relay logic" also describes Nest's first market, the thermostat. I think I see a pattern.
Seems like an excellent design for write protection! Works very well. The write protect bit is also write protected.
The marketing for "Keeper - Password Manger & Secure File Storage" on the Windows store is writing checks they will never be able to cash:
"Keeper is the leading password manager and digital vault for businesses and individuals." Eh, then how come I've never heard of it? And...
"Now it's your turn to experience Keeper's impenetrable security."
Yeah, um, no.
You said it yourself, the rush to fix is to get the fix in before the freeze date.
Eh? You can publish how a thing works and have the thing still be insecure.
I miss the old lever style voting machines. The "thunk" and physical action gave some satisfaction to doing your civic duty. Putting a ballot into a scanner just isn't the same.
I understand the mechanical voting machines were old and required lots of maintenance, plus lots of storage, transportation, etc costs.
Most businesses of any size don't do bookkeeping on paper anymore, so I don't see how the comparison of "double-entry booking" and "election paper trails" is relevant?
This is the only way things make sense.
Let's follow this argument along. So a hacker in some foreign country with minimal punishments for hacking loots your UK bank account. Are you OK with him being prosecuted in his home country, or do you want him tried in the UK? It *is* a crime in both places, just the punishment is different.
Come on El Reg! This was a chance to push your next conference: ".Devops"!
Plants? I read it as "the officer's pants", initially.
If you never buy anything, then you don't get the survey to fill out! You don't count. Sorry.
"qudit"? I would think that qubyte would be the obvious upgrade in capacity from qubit.
"The point of it is to provide bit-addressable nonvolatile capacity greater than typical RAM banks with access times faster than NAND."
RAM isn't bit addressable, and I don't see Xpoint being bit addressable, either. Once again, I'm confused.
Washing machines use regular outlets. Electric clothes dryers require up-rated wiring and receptacles. Unless you mean the water for cooling... ?
All software has bugs, some more than others. The problem here is that Equifax was running software they apparently did not know they were running. This is a process/management fail, not a software fail.
I don't see how "acquired 145,778,246 shares of our non-voting Class A common stock via open market purchases" leads to "help fund a revamp of its Snapchat service to be easier to use". Open market purchase implies they bought from people who are NOT Snap, and thus Snap received no money with which to revamp anything. Have I missed something?
NoScript is not exactly user friendly, with the default of block all, figuring out what to allow to get the result you want can be ... difficult.
The parts in the slide in the image have the Intel units being 1.375MB of L3 per core, while the Qualcomm ones are 1.25MB per core. Advantage to Intel.
And here in the The States, a "fly" is something on your pants that you unzip.
Yeah, I've always wondered about this vehicle to vehicle communications. Perfect "encrypted, authenticated , unjammable and unspoofable" is impossible at consumer cost. Can an asshole with a button make every listening car in range panic brake?
To misquote Menchen: "No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people."
Using IotT does an idiot make.
@Oliver Jones This isn't "agile", this is DevOps/Constant Integration/Constant Deployment. They must have attended that Reg lecture series...
Dang, the North bulb is loose again.
The funny thing to me is that Vista ran fine on my PC long after the latest Ubuntu wouldn't. I think support for the installed Nivida graphics was dropped in some release.
An "ad-icle" would have better photos (I hope), those look like mugshots!
Kernel ASLR does its thing at boot. From then on the kernel address/layout is static. How often do you reboot your BSD/Linux devices?
With this current implementation, one leak of a kernel address to the attacker and they can figure out the rest. "Minimum Viable Product" box checked, hope the improvements continue.
From the article linked to:
"Please note, this is neither an elevation nor an exploitation technique. This technique can be used in a post-exploitation scenario in which the attacker has control over the asset."
"Cheaper houses/areas - less tax;" Doesn't work that way. The jurisdiction needs X dollars in funding, so locales with lower average property values just pay a higher % of value in tax. This would work if the tax jurisdiction was a very large region, here in New York, it is by county/town.
The quote, to me, implies that Microsoft screwed up by having a delta update show up in WSUS. The sysadmin is not being blamed.
@GidaBrasti "I'm afraid you give too much credit to the Greek minister of Justice."
What decent minister accepts credit for bribes? Cash or equivalents only, please.
All this talk of KWs and amps in the comments is confusing me. I thought the unit of electricity in the UK was the tea kettle?
I doubt it. Equifax's customers are not consumers, they are businesses that want to know something about somebody before they extend an offer of credit. That Equifax had a breach isn't their problem at all.
"electrical engineering from top-flight Brown University"
Eh, their graduate engineering program is ranked 52nd in https://www.usnews.com/best-graduate-schools/brown-university-217156/overall-rankings . Not that it matters, you are never going to meet another Brown EE graduate. It looks like there were only 17 in the class of 2016. Looks like a recent high, too. https://www.brown.edu/academics/engineering/about/enrollment-and-graduation-data
Perhaps things would be better if instead of "Terms and Conditions" they were labeled as "Legally Binding Contract", which they apparently are.
Also, software that displays the EULA in a purposefully small window is evil.
"A Sin City court granted Hutchins bail of $30,000 on Friday. However, the decision came at 3.30pm local time, and his attorney wasn't able to make it to the bail office to pay the money before it closed at 4pm."
The one place I'd actually expect to find a 24-hour bail office is .... Las Vegas.
"In space nobody can hear you quack."
The "structuring financial transactions" relates to the "The sales money was funneled back to associates in Italy in batches of less than $10,000 to avoid alerting the tax authorities." The banks have to report transactions of $10,000 and over, not necessarily for "tax" reasons, but for money laundering detection. So noticing who is deliberately moving ~$9,999 around frequently is a good way to detect criminals, as the law abiding people aren't worried about the feds knowing, or even aware of the $10,000 line.
See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dennis_Hastert for an example of somebody who fell afoul of this.
The ONT is distinct from any telco provided ethernet/wifi router. The ONT terminates the fiber connection.
To alter your question... If *I* push the ball down the slope, do I own the copyright, or does the person/monkey who setup the camera?
The obvious distinction is that a corporation is essentially a group of people, it is just that the membership can change over time.
Monkeys are not groups of people.
load balancer? The article clearly said "cloud balancers". I don't even know what that is...
"However, if SEV mode becomes commonplace, it might give the malware writers an unexpected advantage; the whitehats might no longer be able to see inside the VMs..."
Eh? The researchers create and run the VMs they use to study malware. They just have to not check the box for encryption.
"but rather investment fraud. With the latter, there is no requirement for damage to have been done or any form of corporate deception."
Eh? Fraud, by definition, IS deception. Perhaps something lost in translation?
The goal of a pension fund isn't to make zillions of money, ie maximize return, it is to guarantee enough is there to meet obligations. This favors moving to the lowest risk investment that will have enough return.
Might not be impressed, yes. But would the transmitter owner have any legal recourse?
