If some government agency threw a few million at me to write a report on back-door cypto... I would do it, even though I know it's a bad idea and not really likely to be secure.
it's a massive con to fuel the legal profession.
There was still a significant loss of resources fighting something that should NEVER have been granted.
This was already looked at about 5 years ago with another product.
Lawyers also looked at the possibility of people being charged under statutory rape laws if they activated devices without the users consent, which basically it would be.

Re: 6TB in air
The drives pressures or generate negative pressure depending on the temperature profile and altitude.
So it will automatically be subject to pressure variations.
Then there is the issue of what happens during a drive failure. you can bet with a helium drive your chances of recovery are zero, since the air would be to dense to recover the data
Typical of a HK based business.
you only have to speak to the CEO and board members of any company in HK to understand that they consider "IT" at the same level as Janitorial services.
They think paying 16k-20K HK a month is too much for IT staff who only need a secondly ed., and that if you don't buy kit from places like Taobao and brands like TP-Link then you are budgeting poorly.
I kid you not..
Add into that mix that most males who can use a computer in HK seem to think they are some sort of IT geniuses just because they can write an app or stick some cat 6 cables in the back of a router and the stage is set.
Then you have to deal with idiots at the top who get so deeply involved into writing software, that they start dictating things like:
"store the date as text" in the database because we won't need it as a date....
"make the spacing on the HTML page match this exactly"
Then the programmers have to go and patch applications to parse dates out manually using own built libraries, because it turns out 5 months later it might be useful, now the stage is set for all sorts of data injection.
During this continual process of piss poor mind changes they are master-bating about "waterfall diagrams" "SPRINT" , "KPI" and any other buzz terms they have read in their glance through software development....
but not a single code repository in sight, because they did not get to that part of the process or it's not "buzz wordy" enough.
Don't even get me started that many of them consider working on their LIVE systems as normal.

sounds like a massive breach of trust.
Re: Blindingly Obvious Patent
The US patent office is there to help US busniess by blocking usage of technology by non US companies.
Why do you think so any shitty patents are allowed to be registered.
Re: Turning down the transfer offer
Becasue they don't want a legal ruling against them, but you can bet if it was not the government going after them they would have a different attitude.
By doing it this wat the UK government gets a legal ruling which can become the basis for future cases.
Vtec's latest offering is a "home security system"
Connects to the broadband, provides phone Voip, but also control of security & appliances. via a mobile device and part of a massive promotion with the local phone company in HK.
That is not the issue.
The issue is that they are taking "free" software modifying it AND THEN SELLING it back as closed source.
The argument is that it breaches the license they took the original software under.
You can modify & keep the software PRIVATE, but you cannot SELL it back without releasing the modifications.
In reality they could still earn a good profit AND comply with the licensing, but it might be a bit more work for them.
That's GONNA get HOT.

These are not really funny...
There was a certain council in the UK that used to keep its backup tapes in a derelict building with no security.
the site used to house a council dept but had been stripped apart for the massive fire safe.(bout the size of a bank vault)
The council could not afford to move the safe so they kept using it
Re: Well so where's the problem?
you run a "reflection attack", say a computer with an external connection to the internet, DL some java script, then go after the internal network from the computers point of view.
it is NOT untraceable, EVERY transaction in bitcoin is traceable
That is how it works.
sorry I have great difficulty believing this was an "accident".
They had all the bitcoin in a single account under a single password.
With on "cold storage", it just smells of Bollox.
Stay away from Bitdefender as well.
I caught BD uploading names of directories & root device info to their cloud.
including details of my actually name & identity as well as catalog info.
They have no business "profiling" my directory structure of the computer.
This is where HK wins.
once you have paid tax on any of your money, you are free to invest it for "free"
so if you paid tax on your $14USD to buy a bit coin....
then cash it out at $10,000USD, your tax is zero.
We go live to the Uber-Waymo court battle... You are not going to believe this. The judge certainly doesn't
Re: Just wow
Yes all their investors are moving to Bit coin.... less of a risk and a higher return.

I hope they make the next season of "silicon Vally", this company could be a big part of it.

Re: Linus Torvalds is not a Security Expert
Clearly you do not understand a thing about writing software.
There will ALWAYS be false positives, because your system of checking is rule based.
The guy is talking about changes that will kill the OS if something is not right,
Then retroactively imposing it based on some arbitrary set of rules.
Which then means if you have software that cannot be upgraded, you have to stick with the kernel before the changes, which is even more of a security risk, since exploits are already exposed.
Linus may be wrong with his attitude, but I have seen this shit in nearly all big companies
you get a stupid idea trying to be introduced, it gets stomped on softly, then the protagonist starts dragging in other cool aid drinkers and the stupid idea gets in via the back door to the overall determent of the business.
The real problem is too many pussies and left wing metro-sexual thought processes, this is the development of a free world beating OS, collaborated on my millions, if the left wing pussies get a hold, we will be into naming code "mandella-way" , "black_subrotines_matter", or have 35 different way to name binary handling subroutines.
I had a dig about the transactions, once you see the trigger transaction you can start to trace the attempts to extract or corrupt the wallets.
you can see multiple attempts all within a small amount of time.
the story about it being an accident
" oh i just created a bad transaction and then deleted it"
just do not appear to wash.
Basically a $10 processing fee makes the coin useless for micro payments.
on a $100 payment that is a 10% charge possibly one of the most expensive ways of transferring money.
it is NOT for bitcoin, FPGA's are useless for bitcoin now.
It is for the commodity traders, consider a trading system directly inspecting the "bits" on the wire without having to travel up the full stack.
you program up the FPGA with the trigger /response conditions via a back end, completely negates the CPU & software stack ,very very high speed trading friendly.
Re: "Nvidia's dominance"?
Because it is integrated into the CPU core.
So even if it is not used ... it is still "shipped"
But why ?
you chew up a massive amount of power and bandwidth to test PW in an organization you can easily ask the user their pw
The guy is so full of shit it is just unbelievable.
With the money they had made from phones, they could have become a major player.
What is sadder?
1.He was prosecuted for a picture of a toy gun.
2. He enjoys being Walter Mitty
Re-write the 0.25% of the code he supplied and remove him from the scene completely.
Yep the Americans, using American law to gain access to the data,
then saying since it is NOT America they don't need to follow the law and get an American warrent to read the data.
People are forgetting that they don't own other peoples data.
Take for example UPS or DHL in Europe or Hong Kong, you can allocate your phone number
so the delivery guy can contact you before delivery........
only problem is that it uses the delivery mans phone, so if that delivery man is running facebook
then under the EULA for the delivery man , he said he would share the data from his phone,
But I never gave him permission to share my phone number with Facebook.
I live in a private gated estate. google is not allowed in our estate, but since the delivery company is using google API's on its delivery vehicle software & hand helds, my address and full details have been passed to google.....
worse my house and the address I gave to the delivery company is now on google maps.
How do I know.... Simple, the spelling/ layout of the address is slightly different for each delivery company used.
Equifax's malvertising scare, Chromebook TPM RSA key panic, Cuban embassy sonic weapon heard at last – and more
Looks like they finally got a recording of Jennifer Lopez singing.
It is a stupid idea,
from morons with a 1 dimensional thought process.
since most hackers with any brains , use other peoples systems, where does that leave retaliation?
Heads don't float,
When you get down to this level air resistance is so high the air behaves like a liquid.
Hence the Helium drives.
Perhaps some sort of vacuum drive and a protonic emitter to make the head levitate.
Or some little man running very fast carrying the head......
LOL,,,, what a crock.
Helium is this amazing stuff that is actually lighter than air....
using your assumption about air pressure, it should be possible to stick helium in an open glass and it would still be there 10 minutes later.
it would continually be trying to leak out and create a vacuum
work it out....
you end up with a MASSIVE failure, since the space inside the drive is now way more turbulent and "sticky", head crashes, you name it...
it is unlikely to be a "conspiracy" theory.
I complained to "bitdefender" because with their new enforced fucking "cloud" system, not only can they "snag" files. (never used to happen with the standalone version, which they discontinued)
But they can and DO identify personal information , which is then uploaded to their servers.
Because I have seen my personal information ON their server in the "cloud" log files associated with MY account.
This includes "fullpaths" of any files they consider infected.
So yes totally believable story,, since the guy was working on infection code
AV system identifies "code", then they upload it to do an analysis.
Consider the power of this "tool", you get something from a government agency (spying), file name etc.....
Then you upload a "hash" to a "pet" AV company, the AV company then identifies EVERY computer
the same "hash" appears on.
Great way to "out" spies or people with a connection to a file you are interested in.
Or consider it from a "peado" catching system. get the AV to search the computers of millions of people without a search warrant, just based on "hash" values.
The sad thing is that when scientists talk about modeling random systems and tracking them, people laugh.
But someone comes up with a half assed idea of sticking the whole of mankind's data into a cloud system and instantly it is a good idea.
