"Team America" Gets Post-Hack Yanking At Alamo Drafthouse, Too
And from your link:
Update: On Thursday, multiple theaters, including the Alamo Drafthouse in Dallas/Fort Worth, stated that screenings of Team America have been canceled.
I would guess not. (posted from a phone on a work break) I thought Texas was supposed to be a state that had balls. Guess not.
Sony hack: Obama considers 'proportional response' against North Korea
The White House calls the hacking of the Sony studio a "serious national security matter," while Hollywood stars compare cancellation of The Interview to Neville Chamberlain's'appeasement of Adolf Hitler and a second film called Pyongyang is also pulled.
1. Mythbusters (and others) have already tested this in real life (not a computer program) and said they could have survived. 2. They could have survived, but they didn't survive. Unless they lived out the rest of their lives in isolation; we would have heard something from them.
No bodies were ever found, which is evidence of them making it to land. Life on Alcatraz is something you'd avoid going back to at all costs, including learning to live a low key, law abiding life.
What reason could North Korea possible have to deny hacking Sony if they did it?
To keep the Sony bombs away?
It could've been the NSA, we don't know for sure.
Chinese smartphone maker Coolpad has built an extensive "backdoor" into its Android devices that can track users, serve them unwanted advertisements and install unauthorized apps, a U.S. security firm alleged today.
In a research paper released today, Palo Alto Networks detailed its investigation of the backdoor, which it dubbed "CoolReaper."
"Coolpad has built a backdoor that goes beyond the usual data collection," said Ryan Olson, director of intelligence at Palo Alto's Unit 42. "This is way beyond what one malicious insider could have done."
Coolpad, which sells smartphones under several brand names — including Halo, also called Danzen — is one of China's largest ODMs (original device manufacturers). According to IDC, it ranked fifth in China in the third quarter, with 8.4% of the market, and has expanded sales outside of the People's Republic of China (PRC) and Taiwan to Southeast Asia, the U.S. and Western Europe.
Tipped off by a string of complaints from Coolpad smartphone users in China and Taiwan — who griped about seeing advertisements pop up and apps suddenly appear — Palo Alto dug into the ROM updates that Coolpad offered on its support site and found widespread evidence of CoolReaper.
Of the 77 ROMs that Palo Alto examined, 64 contained CoolReaper, including 41 hosted by Coolpad and signed with its own digital certificate.
Other evidence that Coolpad was the creator of the backdoor, said Olson, included the malware's command-and-control servers — which were registered to domains belonging to the Chinese company and used, in fact, for its public cloud — and an administrative console that other researchers had found last month because of a vulnerability in Coolpad's backend control system. The console confirmed CoolReaper's functionality.
CoolReaper has a host of components that allow Coolpad to download updates and apps to devices, start services and uninstall apps, dial phone numbers and send texts, and more — all without user knowledge, much less authorization.
So far, the backdoor has been used to serve up unsolicited ads and install apps without user approval, said Olson, who speculated that both were being done for financial reasons. Coolpad may be getting a per-app-install fee, for example."

An all-out ban on drones within the metropolis would be a quite wide-reaching step, especially as the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) seems poised to adopt more permissive rules, with respect to commercial interests in particular. Earlier this year, the FAA formally granted six Hollywood companies exemptions to drone ban rules. A couple of months later, the FAA granted similar exemptions for construction site monitoring and oil rig flare stack inspections.
Despite the FAA's tentative steps towards drone regulation, pilots of planes and helicopters have reported increased sightings of drones in their airspace, and several near-collisions. 12 incidents of dangerous encounters between drones and planes in the New York and Newark areas have been reported in recent months. In addition, in 2011, a man was fined $10,000 by the FAA for flying a remote-controlled plane recklessly through New York City. However, the National Transportation Safety Board struck down that fine. (ArsTechnica article....)"
