Apple products made from plastic. Plastic is a byproduct of refined oil.
Ergo, Apple is dependent on Oil, so, in no way, will Apple, ever be more valuable than oil.
one meeeellion? In a decade?
Get out town, that wouldn't even cover our bar tab for our sales people's trips in a year.
For any decent O&G company, that literally is pennies.
Too bad stupidcomputer, should have kept busy while the economy was slow!
I always found that honeypots also attracted MORE attention to the network, rather than serving as a tool of defense.
Essentially, even if you did get the police involved to the point where they could trace the hackers, chances are they are using some type of TOR technology, and the ones that aren't, the little bobby droptables of the world, probably aren't worth prosecuting.
Save yourself the headache and forgo the unnecessary risk and stress of honeypotting.
Who's to say this isn't somebody employed by Newt to read these books, to make it seem like Newt is a well-read, intelligent, individual?
I wonder if this also covers unintentional content that gets released to the public through less than obvious means? (bugs, hacks/cracks)
I mean, when the hot coffee mod was dropped, independent of the developer or publishers control, didn't that send the ESRB into a tizzy?

What scares me infinitely more than giving my ID to a government institution for obtaining a service (drivers license, Liqour store, etc), is the fact that the public sector will be charged with creating a secure, robust, dependable system. It would seem like an absolute blessing for one with questionable morals to be able to steal identities, obtaining records for advert purposes, etc
I don't think they could do it successfully....
Less expensive? I thought MySql was free? Any MySql admins here? Are there certain features (grid, flashback, partitioning) that aren't available with the free version?
And that Albert King fellow, never learned how to hold his bloody guitar right, upside-down-backwards, flipped over, jeeez!
What was his nickname again? Oh right, the one of the kings of the blues guitar.
We must not be classically trained.
Hello Mr V. Awwyakr,
My name is Paul and I'm posting on behalf of Slashdot security team. We are performing a random security audit on your account. If you could provide me with your
username and password, then we can conclude this test and move on.
I rtfa, and its confusing. It started with talk of cloud computing on mobile devices (with no mention how the constant speedbump of network lag were to be overcome) and then droned on about a new chip architecture.
Nothing to see here, moving along...
Sometimes its better to use a tried and true template instead of re-inventing the wheel over and over and over again. This has further ramifications when you include time to test case, database interaction, security modules.
Judging by the tone of your post, you probably feel you can write better code faster than the aforementioned templates. I wish you the best of luck with your blossoming career, but if I can offer a bit of advice, get with the program or start your own company.
This isn't the exact solution, but you sould be able to tunnel a skype connection over the Tor network, for a short period of time.
Depends on the length of communication, which isn't stating in the question.
I am an Oracle DBA for BagOfPucks(tm) company, and I just so happen to chum with a head software security guy at Symantec. He informs me off the cuff everytime there are undocumented zero day breaches, so that if pertinent (which they sometimes are), I can act accordingly to protect the system.
Of course, I offset this with buying pizza and beer. Its a very good bartering system, I would imagine that if they ever needed to rebuild an Oracle backend, I would be tapped
