The HTC One M8 does bend a bit, but does not break, where as an iPhone 6+ breaks and warps under less pressure.
Here's the iPhone 6+ bending under little pressure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?...
So does Indian Mars look anything like American Mars?
In the case of Argentina it sounds like they're flat out lazy. How can you not see a house built on a lot that was supposedly vacant? You have to plat the lot, take out permits presumably and then have inspections. Maybe in Argentina they don't have building codes? I doubt that but somebody isn't doing their job.
In the case of Argentina, they're not using Google Maps (etc.) They're going out and taking pictures of the property, getting timely evidence. That's what the whole article is about -- them using drones to do their job.
Lazy is when now during re-appraisals (which we go through annually here) means that they have to have an up to date photo of the property to assess "condition" We caught them last year using a 6 year old Google Street View image. That's lazy and I already pay well enough for these morons to just drive around and get up to date information, it's in the tax law for my state and we caught them not doing their job.
If they legally need a photo less than a year old, and they're instead grabbing photos off of Google, then yes, they're using Google inappropriately, and it's fair to call it lazy.
Its stale. I've got news for you Google Street View and Satellite images can be years old. If I were relying on it for up to date information then I'd be mistaken. My house on street view was taken in 2010. A lot has changed since then.
How much is that more-up-to-date information worth to you?
Depending on what the government is using it for, using street view or maps images may or may not be effective. A blanket statement characterizing it as "lazy" doesn't make sense until you have determined whether or not the advantages outweigh the disadvantages.
any CGI script that at any point invokes a shell or invokes a program that invokes a shell (e.g. using the system call), irrespective of the actual shell command
But it's been well known for more than ten years that you ought not to call system or execute external programs from a CGI program. That's just a bad idea. This exploit is one proof as to why.
Google Street View, Google Satellite View are all now being used by lazy local governments.
A rare example of governments using a cheap, effective method to do their jobs rather than finding an expensive and inefficient way to do it.
20,000 is not a brute force attack. That will only succeed if your password was 3 characters long.
I find it hard to believe anyone was actually vulnerable to this.
While you're correct that 20,000 attempts is too small to "brute-force" a password (by trying all combinations of characters), it's plenty to do a dictionary attack. If you can try 20,000 popular passwords on a whole bunch of accounts, you'll almost certainly be able to break some of them.
What if I dressed up as a doctor, had an air of gravitas, videoed from what looks like an ivy covered university and gave terrible terrible medical advice about Tylenol maximum dosages?
Not really the same thing, as that could cause death (or death-like symptoms).
Or if I dressed as a garage mechanic used all kinds of mechanical words and gave horrible advice such as sugar in the gas tank eliminates the squeal when you hit the brakes?
This falls under the category of life lesson. Just like the iPhone trick.
If you search for "microwave iphone", at least you end up with some articles with evidence that people actually tried this.
The dice.com article doesn't even manage that.
How the hell does this company manage to make any money with this kind of ineptitude running the show?
It astounds me that ios is just now getting features like that.
Every time I use my girlfriend's not-updated iPhone 5 I feel like I'm on gingerbread.
Now that they have made all their software trustworthy there is no more need for the group, right? Declare victory and go home.
That's what they did when IE6 won the browser war!
