Maybe, but not in this case. Dutch news sites report that the cops bought XTC, MDMA and cocaïne from the owners of utopia, and got the sellers to meet the cops in real life.
You mean that great thing that requires you to walk through the rain for ten minutes, then is 2 minutes early so you miss it and have to wait 30 minutes for the next one? That wondrous device that requires a driver that goes on strike several times a year, leaving you without options? That doesn't ride when you really need to get to your crashed server at 3am? And that never goes from A to B in straight line but takes 1:06 from my home to my work, while I can drive in 20 minutes myself.
Actually we have solved that problem. It's called S/MIME and getting your keys from a Certificate Authority such as VeriSign.
VeriSign... Under the direct control of the NSA. Or any other CA in the ca-bundle.crt, such as DigiNotar - iranian govt had direct or indirect access to those certificates. Or what about türktrüst, a CA under control of another totalitarian regime.
S/MIME is only secure when the dozens of CAs can be fully trusted. And they've shown they can't.
I switched to thunderbird as well. My favorite feature: no single company can cut my access to this reader.
NAT has proven to be a great benefit!
Indeed, it has. It even kept some attackers out.
Then came UPnP.
Publicly addressable does not always mean "reachable". Most routers will probably have a firewall by default to filter incoming connections.
I'm not so sure about that. The kernel module uploaded to the full discosure list happened to be a amd64 module targetting debian kernel 2.6.32-5. But when it's not php, most malware I've seen was distributed as source code, compiled at the target machine to match the targets specifications.
Yes, they do. About 95% of people out there would answer "yes" when internet explorer asks "Are you sure you want to install this virus?". And you expect those people to install custom firmware?
Nor the Netherlands. Seems politicians want to wipe every single smile of our faces.
Why not 6km/10km? I'm not sure, but I guess it's because the village where she was found is only 500meters long and surrounded by meadows. 5km radius = 10km diameter. This means all nearby villages are included as well.
Any further is a lot less likely: most crimes are commited within a certain distance of the criminals home. Because the infrastructure at the site doesn't allow to travel very fast, this distance decreases I think.
The Marianne Vaatstra case will probably never be solved. There was a lot of evidence pointing towards a center of asylum seekers nearby. The most likely suspects fled the country within a few days.
In fact, in another Dutch case, the very same promise was made... and broken. The guys who fell for it are now stored in the central DNA database. Forever.
If only I remembered what case that was, I would post a link.
Depends on what you call decent.
From my home to the office takes 15-20 minutes by car (or motorcycle
Indeed, most attackers are. But even then, you can report them to the IP block owner, so they can fix the problem.
Unfortunately, most providers are part of the problem instead of part of the solution: they do nothing with abuse reports. At least the ones i've contacted.
Run OpenVPN on any udp port using the tls-auth option to drop unsigned packages. Use iptables to drop all other 65534 ports. Good luck finding out which port is the VPN server.
Gas will hit $10/gal and the problem will take care of itself.
In The Netherlands we are paying € 1,871 per liter = € 7.08 = $ 8.89 with the current exchange rates. Nevertheless, the number of cars on the roads has only increased in the past few decades.
The only effect it that i absolutely hate to drive my fscking car that takes up to a minute to get from 0 to 100kmh/62mph, and that I have less money to spend on things I actually like. But I'm definitely not driving any less, because if I don't go to work, I don't get paid.
