Submission + - Possible Cyber Attack Against South Korean Banks and TV Stations->

B3ryllium writes: "At least four broadcasters and two banks in South Korea are reporting massive computer accessibility issues, saying that their networks are 'paralyzed' by what looks like a cyber attack. Additional reports from Twitter suggest that hundreds of computers in the country powered off simultaneously at 2:20am, and reported "Boot device not found" errors. South Korea's military has upgraded its "Information Operation Condition (INFOCOM)" level from Level 4 to Level 3 in response to this situation."

Submission + - Matthew Keys Indicted in LA Times hacking; faces up to 30 years in jail->

B3ryllium writes: He's no Aaron Swartz — in fact, it looks like he deliberately encouraged Anonymous to hack his previous employer, and even gave them access credentials to do it — but the indictment appears to recommend charges that could result in up to 30 years in prison and a $750,000 fine. That's not right.

Comment Oh, come on ... heh. (Score 1) 90

Many of the available PCI-type scanning tools seem to recommend it, so this is wonderful. Certainly sounds riskier than the recent BEAST vulnerability.

I'm sure this will lead to a few new entries on my gibsonindex.org cyber attack severity ranking project, as people find ways to apply this attack vector. :(

Anyone know what Cipher Suite configuration is the "safest" now? :)

MMBK writes "Our friends at JESS3 have unveiled The Ex-Blocker. It's a Firefox and Chrome plugin that erases all name and likeness of your ex from the Internet, even if they become a meme, or the president. You'll no longer have to threaten to delete your Facebook account or concoct an elaborate e-hoax to assuage the reality-shattering complications that are born from break-ups. Simply construct an Internet that omits bad vibes all together."
