It has already been blocked: http://reestr.rublacklist.net/... - welcome to Russia.
Most sane people who value privacy and freedom in Russia use TOR or VPN, because far too many websites are blocked while they contain a single "infringing" document. Unfortunately when we're talking about HTTPS the only way to block the infringing document is to take down the whole website.
Well, I'm not so sympathetic with the conclusions.
Firstly, English is perhaps the most vocal language among all existing languages on Earth, it has far too many words which sound like the object being described.
Secondly, there's German.
Thirdly, and let me quote the article, "Their guesses were not nearly as good as the face-to-face participantsâ"35.6% right versus 82.2%â"but they had only one round in which to make their guess." Now, I'm not a mathematician but everything below 50% sounds like a wild guess to me.
First of all there are immortal cookies (infinite cache entries created specifically for your unique PC). Secondly, there's a unique combination of your web browser + OS + fonts + plug ins: https://panopticlick.eff.org/ Thirdly, there are unique patterns in your behaviour (websites that you visit and how frequently you do that) and other wonderful metrics to trace you.
If you want to avoid being traced and tracked there's just one way:
This is actually a recipe for browsing the web anonymously however this is the reality of the modern web - not to be traced means to be anonymous as much as possible.
"To exploit the vulnerability and install the rootkit, attackers would need to already have kernel or system privileges on a computer."
You know, even without this particular SMM attack vendor, a hacker who already has system level privileges on your PC renders your PC totally insecure, besides he also can

If AGW is real and the global temperature is to rise unmitigated, the rich (who actually own the planet) will actually start doing something about that only when war comes knocking on their front doors.
Up until then there will be no tangible changes to prevent further warming of the Earth.
I don't know about others, but most of my friends run 3+ yo computers and laptops based on Sandy Bridge.
This CPU architecture was so good, or maybe Intel stopped innovating in the absence of competition, so today, more than three years later, I have zero urge to upgrade my PC. The only updates that I've made are: I updated my GPU a year ago and installed NVIDIA Kepler. Also, initially I had just four gigs of RAM in 2x2GB configuration and now I have sixteen gigs in 4x4GB configuration. Everything else is from 2011.
I remember ten years ago, when you didn't update your computer at least once every two year, it became horribly outdated, slow and just unpleasant to use.
I prefer KDE, but not what KDE4/5/plasma are.
I still use KDE 3.5.10, the sanest, the most customizable, and the most convenient KDE that has ever existed. XFCE is my second favourite (the only sane option in new distros).
C Code. C Code Run. Run, Code, RUN! PLEASE!!!!
