The ransomware gets its name from the fact that the "DecryptorMax" string is found in multiple places inside its source code.
They distributed the source code with the ransomware?
Or the strings in the source code ended up generating strings in the object code and something like the "strings" tool found them.
We can only assume they are too cheap, lazy or distracted with other things to keep frequent backups.
Or they think they ARE keeping backups, because they ARE - on a different part of the same disk, using automated processes provided and touted by the vendor - but the ransomware disables the tools and deletes the backups. Oops!
There's a difference between "backups" and "adequate, off-machine, backups".
Why would you need a random
- The authors wrote the tool to use enough of the start of an encrypted/clear file pair to generate / sieve the key and deployed that.
- Some used discovered, after the tool was deployed, that the invariant header of a
I'd bet that, if the authors had thought there was a nearly-universally-present file type the ransomware would chose to encrypt, with a large enough header to pull off this trick, they'd have included a canned header and the option to use it in the tool.
That's something conventional flow batteries can't do.hat's something conventional flow batteries can't do.
The hell they can't. Industrial-scale Vanadium Redox flow batteries are doing that right now, in utility companies, and have been for a couple years. (In New Zeeland, if I recall correctly.)
I think the reason they're not more widely used already is that they're under patent protection, the company is small, and its owners don't want to license the technology or dilute their equity, so the supply is limited to their ramp-up and funding sources.
When does the battery become capacitor?
When the voltage across it is directly proportional to percentage of charge.
And they already did, many years ago. That's what "supercapacitors" are: Electrochemical cells where the charge is stored by migrating, but not ionization-state-changing, ions in a solution (rather than by migrating electrons within two conductors (one metal, the other metal or conductive liquid) separated by an insulator, as in a conventional or electrolytic capacitor, or ionization-state-changing ions in the cells of a conventional battery,where the voltage only changes slightly with state of charge until nearly full discharge.
I'm not supposed to feel trashed every time you erroneously throw around possessives ("your party"), then? As long as your special snowflake feelings retain their superiority, all is justified.
It is worth noting here that the ones conscripting armies are not the socialists, though.
And even if they explicitly claim to be, you'll lay down a No True Scotsman in a jiffy, like the boss you always are.
AGW won't necessarily imply chocolate rationing.
No, but the Orwellian nature of anthropogenic global climate non-constant change warming does.
"Failed" push for renewables? 
What strikes me about that is he cites the government-subsidized, market-distorting, winner-picking, scam-promoting "renewable energy push" period, with the Solyndra scam held up as the poster child, as a TECHNOLOGICAL failure.
we need to acknowledge that many of the additional "free market reforms" that your friends advocate for bring us much much closer to functional slavery
Functional slavery would more correctly be the debt shackles imposed by Progress.
Has it occurred to you that differing sets of priorities for "liberties" is not automatically a bad thing? Not everyone thinks that your notion of "freedom" - as applied to the market before the individual - is the most important.
Adolf certainly did not.
