If they have sudo and reset your root password, they're going to have to explain themselves later.
Or they could just restore it back to what it was..
I haven't finished writing my fake SSH server yet to see what people do when they get in, but I'm betting the entire medium is just one giant funnel to beijing intelligence looking to slurp down as many usernames and passwords as they can.
Not sure why you need a fake SSH server (and how long could it take, anyway?) but I've seen what they do. First command was a uname -a, second command was to wget some binary. You can guess the third command
If you've actually got the algorithms to back that up, you'd be a pioneer in AI.
You're joking, right? The theory behind an aimbot is pretty much as simple as it gets. And it's not like you have to kill every person on the map, you could easily use the aimbot to achieve "snapping" to the target or what not.
Want to prove it? Dial Goog-411. That's right, that's Google doing voice-recognition.
While I'm sure you've proved something, it has nothing to do with this. If the task isn't suitable for a bot, don't do it with a bot. You'll notice I also qualified it with a statement "as long as a computer is better at the task" part. Things like social element and group work is going to be too difficult.
your aimbot is going to both be too perfect at headshotting people, and it'll make stupid mistakes that only a bot would
It's a silly point, as it's all down to implementation of the bot. The bot doesn't need to do more than just assist you to be a huge advantage.
One such bot that comes to mind is: tibiabot It only uses data accessible to a person, and only does actions a person could do. And it primarily sits on the background until needed. An example of its use is to automatically hit someone when they're on low health (before they have time to heal) or to automatically heal (with an optional rand(x,y)) delay on low health. Or you can use "combo" features where multiple people playing will all target the same person automatically etc. And even to automatically heal a friend, something that would normally go missed because a player is too focused on something else. It can make a beginner player far more effective player than an advanced player in battles. And is all done without extra data.
Not even close. As long as computers are better at tasks than humans, the issue remains.
i.e. Think about an aim-bot. A computer is going to be more accurate and faster than a person with the same data. And even if you do the whole streaming-game thing, bot likely will still exist, that process the stream and emulate user actions far quicker than a human could
They're called Impellers - you normally find them in jetskis
And I doubt an impeller is the solution anyway, I was water skiing behind a jet ski and after falling in he did a loop right over the toe rope which got sucked into and jammed the impeller.
What industry abuses their customers, dangles features and incentives of questionable value in a quid pro quo for contractual lock-in and then produces unilateral unpredictable billing and surcharges to this captive market? No. You are right! That describes Credit Card companies, the only business hated more by their customer base than the mobile phone providers. That describes Credit Card companies, the only business hated more by their customer base than the mobile phone providers.
Why do you suppose these customers are using a credit card? All my credit cards directly debit my bank account (the full amount) at the end of the month, give me rewards for using it (from the merchant fees), give me interest free purchases (till the end of month), and it's more convenient than carrying around cash. And if at any stage I'm unhappy with it, I'm free to walk away.
And the points about lock-in, unpredictable billing, surcharges and captive market are all crap. Sounds just like more whining by someone who doesn't want to take responsibility for money they've agreed to borrow.
