Movie/TV Computer Security Explained

Except for some high budget, technically accurate releases, most Hollywood productions generalize security terms for the masses. Here's the translation:

Encryption --> firewall
Password protection --> firewall
Bio-metrics --> firewall
Passkey protection --> firewall
2 factor authentication --> firewall
VPN --> firewall
Firewall --> firewall

Example: "We need Agent X's passkey to break the fifth and final encrypted firewall and access the system."

SLAMMER spread itself in January of 2003 and caused some DOS on the Internet worldwide. It exploited a known vulnerability (MS02-039) in MS SQL for which a patch has been available for 6 months.

The malicious code was 376 Bytes long and spread itself through UDP port 1434 with a single packet.

Since it didn’t write anything to disk, it was super easy to clean up.

Brilliant project that tidies up public domain ebooks.

Gutenberg and Internet Archive are wonderful resources, but the texts are poorly formatted for actual use, especially on ereaders.

This is a volunteer driven initiative to bring these texts up to date with modern standards and make them look as good as possible on the page.

hi fediverse!

i'm wondering if there's a good, straight-forward tool out there for two-person collaboration and discussion.

i'm thinking something like Slack with a collaborative writing environment like google docs with maybe a side order of a wiki for organizing resources?

not for a huge team, though. just for little teams. i this case it's just me and my writing mentee.

WannaCry was one of the first pieces of (of type ransomware) that took advantage of the EternalBlue vulnerability, which was made public by the Shadow Brokers after they failed to sell it for a high price.

In May 2017 a large outbreak encrypted something like 300k Windows computers. The attack has been attributed to the Lazarus Group - A state-sponsored hacking group out of North Korea.

Doing some - You might loose connection for a couple of minutes.

I am almost google free. I have cut over about 70% of my accounts to protonmail and additionally, deleted a large % of accounts that I no longer need. I should be able to safely cut the cord by end of year.

The real Lord of the Flies: what happened when six boys were shipwrecked for 15 months

A reader comment worth noting:

"‘Lord of flies’ has direct link w Garret Hardin’s ’Tragedy of Commons’, Ayn Rand individualism. 6 Tongan boys demonstrated Elinor Ostrom‘s ‘Management of the Commons’ in which she debunked Hardin’s malign rhetoric. Too bad Ostrom (Nobel ‘09) is not basis of Economics courses"
