who are the vultures here :o)
There is one group who has scored though: Kim's lawyers will walk away with $1.2m in fees.
as ever, it is the real vultures who take the cake, and eat it :o(

I heard third ancestor, and thought a Ménage à trois
but now find it isn't that interesting, wish I'd asked nana some proper questions when I had the chance now :o)
mind you I HAVE been to Texas, and the size of some of them guys is proof positive that some were humping buffalo's :oP

Used to be a clipboard and a frown would let you leisurely stroll past any security. I wonder, in the age of computers does that still work or will people stop you to ask "Hey, what's that"?
the clipboard and THE frown were social engineering 101 back in the day, still works to this day, just that some organisations are getting their act together, mind you, the sheer number of web based connections available nowadays is making the use of social engineering less important now, even if it is still a potent force at times
shurely there's a demand for this thread to be resurrected ?
I remember it well, if not the actual nights themselves LOL
proud to say have tried a few, and survived them all, although waking up in a bed that stinks of god knows what the morning after was always a surprise :o)
this year, I am in work, support is always available :oP
but thinking of you all in your party frocks :o)
Happy New Year commentards!
not me :o)
but in my time pre IT, I was an electrician, worked on same site as my dad [RIP] we were working to alter some wiring runs, in a VERY hot spot in factory, dad decided to remove his shirt to give him a chance of staying cool ish, I was already a hot sweaty mess.
after the work was completed, we were coming down ladders / scaffolding to return to the site box where we kept tools and kit etc, to find a fitter [ mech type guy ] using dad's shirt to clean his hands ...........
cue merciless hoots of laughter from moi
and a decidely filthy shirted dad making his way home later to try and explain that one to mum :o)
"There was a list of websites whose names took on unfortunate connotations when concatenated into a URL. Among them were Pen Island Stationers and Mole Station Creche."
And Experts Exchange. When they started appearing in "unfortunately named websites" lists, they added a redirect to a domain with a hyphen.
wasn't there an issue when SuBo had her latest CD release ?
all invited to see at www.susanalbumparty...................................
A London council decided they needed better workplace compliance tools at round the turn of the century
THE CENTURY ................ WTAF
I feel so old now
in work, it's Boxing day, and up until NOW, LAST CENTURY was the feckin VICTORIANS ffs :o)
anyhow, I will need a strong lie down in the morning to get over this latest old age revelation :oP
great thread, lots of details in an easy to read package, but this ..........
In short, use a unique password for your IoT gear, and activate two-step authentication where possible.
should be the mantra for the madern world, I know it isn't perfect, but it IS SO much better than the usual melange of reused passwords and nothing else, read about the FORTNITE hackers making money from stealing accounts, and even they were saying that 2FA would give them grief.
would usually expect to see a rush of the appleatsi all telling us how good the product is and that the price merely reflects this ...........
maybe, just maybe, Apple have actually started to price out their biggest supporters ?
and that isn't going to help, if you have a mediocre range and a sky high price, then every little bit of positive print helps
ME ? I have an MS phone .............. so what do I know :o)
due for replacement as of the 19th December, and as MS have decided to ditch all of their clients, I am left looking at Android - price alone sets Apple out of the basket - but I have only ever used windows smart phones, and so will need to re-train myself into a different OS, but at least Mr Cook's market plan means I only have to think about one OS :oP
why facial recognition ...........
surely a fingerprint reader on the buzzer push would be easier to sort [ AND hide :oP ]
and yes, some people wear gloves, but it would still build up an impressive D/B over the passage of a year or so, THEN add in the facial recog AI kit, and add in a splash of interactive with your cell phone, and now we are seriously into Minority Report world ..............................
maybe add a [\ sarcasm ] so I can employ plausible deniability when this does hit the streets :o)
Ironically, the campaign itself appears to have bombed: No transactions have been recorded yet, at least at the bitcoin addresses we checked.
you are able to 'check' the addresses in the threat, so wouldn't it be possible for law enforcment to access and strip said accounts of their ill gotten ?
serious question, as I have only a passing knowledge of the whole bit chain malarky TBH
it is difficult to see how Ticketmaster could say it is not responsible for the breach while keeping a straight face.
THIS from a Co that takes the face value of any ticket as a starting point then doubles / trebles down on that, has had PLENTY of experience in keeping at least ONE of their faces straight .....................
oh wait However in a paranoid world where the bad-guys are also tech savvy then a listening device that does not broadcast instead having weeks or even months of internal storage capacity makes more sense.
The drawback being you need something bulky to hide it in.
Like an industrial cleaner perchance ? ............
500 MILLION accounts
$110 IF you can PROVE it was their fault .............................
not sure what upsets me most, but at the moment it's the fact they were open for 'business' for FOUR YEARS ......................
dang it to heck, WTAF do their Admins get paid for ?
to fantasise is a normal part of growing up, however this fuckwit seems to have not figured out that the truly notoroius in 'Haxxor' circles are not truly known, and would far rather they remain forever in the shadows so that none shall either stop nor discover them
the reality being that to be known, is to be no longer either notorious or any damn good :o)
think of spys, once their cover is gone, their 'job' is gone too, unless they are called Bond, James Bond of course :oP
I would say though, that to call this "intelligence" is a bit of a stretch.
which leads us back to "what is intelligence " ............
trying to complete AI from a human brain start was highly unlikely to be attained without some form of a EUREKA moment, and it would appear that the natural world MAY have answers that we need to explore first, it may lead us to true AI, it may not, but we won't know until we try .............
OR our metallic overlords attain sentinence and start to kick off about all the shit weve done to them over the years, which is the OTHER way to know we have achieved true AI ;oP
this thread is the reason I come here, a serious position, yet filled will side chat and humour too, creased me up, loved it :o)
The limited range of vision that comes with existing goggles is also presumably what made military chiefs comfortable with the HoloLens' somewhat limited field of view.
yet there hasn't been as much of a fuss over Microsoft's censored version of Bing in the Middle Kingdom
I do believe that being BING is suffice to classify it as 'crippled' but I may be wrong LOL
"Hey Siri, Ok Google, Alexa – please put on a timer for five minutes." To which of course Alexa will say: "I couldn't find Old Timer for Fine Mimics."
thanks for that, started my Thursday / the WEEKEND - for me - with a damn good laugh LOL
That's odd. I thought the whole point of a nuclear sub was that it could stay submerged for weeks / months on end (basically as long as food/drink supplies last). Does it REALLY take a year to do maintenance on a sub
the maintenance i just ONE thing, once the ship has been away from sea for any length of time the crew need to come back up to speed and require training in ALL aspects of their duties before they are deemed fit to return, hence if you have four, one at sea, one heading back, one in maintenance, one in training is how it all runs
but the more people who use Tor, the more accommodating they will become.
Err, I THINK you will find that the more people that use TOR that the whole edifice will start to crumble as stupidity arrives in spades, just because a user has found TOR is NO indication they have any idea of WTF they are actually doing, and so they will whinge and whine, and eventually it will all be as easy as it is now outside TOR ffs :o( and not in a good way
Do you use an RFID card to unlock security doors or release gates at your workplace? Do they work every time? Of course they bloody don't. Half the time, you're standing in front of the door flourishing your card impotently across the sensor from different directions again and again, watching the red light flash repeatedly with an accompanying ugly audio bleat, as you duly recite the workplace mantra: "Fucking open the fuck up you fucking fucked fucker".
tonight actually, and TBH, there were a LOT more F's in MY mantra
I just asked my Amazon Alexa who Bill Godbout was. She had no idea but had told me earlier in response to a morning greeting that it was Mickey Mouse's birthday.
and THIS tells us more about the standing of IT in peoples lives than anything we shall read today, this along with Joe Publics breathtaking lack of knowledge on IT Sec makes me want to weep
RIP to one of the first to 'get it / IT' as it were
You Tube is believed to pull down between 10 and 15 BILLION $ per year ........................
it's been raking in this cash for over a decade, but now, when asked to ensure that the ones creating the product, are catered for / paid for or product removed .................
NOW it's all too much like hard work ........................
you have NO idea how hard I would be prepared to function to ensure that the goose kept on laying those golden returns ffs
On a related note, did the crowd-compute schemes for protein folding ever produce anything worthwhile, relative to the energy used?
the conspiracy types will tell you that everything that was found to be usefu lhas been stashed down the back of various couches until there is a decent reason [ read $$$$ ] for it to be 'discovered' :oP
known as CIS, in the inevitable military acronym.
and they do a decent job of solving the navies crimes too I hear :oP
And how do you KEEP it that way? Especially against both clandestine bridging and PHBs who don't know better?
because it's the military, and you do as you are told, even when it is not necessarily the right thing :o)
when all we had to worry about was that pesky flaming from the IRC thingy that the damn kids had come up with, mind you, with access being in the 56kbps, we were LUCKY to have flames, I barely raised smoke :oP
just re read this, and am now sitting waiting for the got wood remarks ffs, sometimes I go moist for the days of IRC
