They're already paying the lawyers, so the fees are spent either way.
The impression I got from the nissan.com story was that he tried to make a quick buck (when asked for a price, he said "I don't know, $15 million?") and when he realized that made him look bad he turned it around into a victim story.
Don't get me wrong, that doesn't excuse Nissan Motors' behavior. I was considering buying a Nissan Murano in 2005, and chose another brand specifically because of the nissan.com debacle. My wife emailed a copy of the vehicle we purchased instead to their customer service department with an explanation.
Try Microsoft's EMET if you're in a position to do so; it's usually able to block the exploit from working on old Java if you can't upgrade.
I knew when Microsoft and Novel signed that patent cross-licensing deal they were up to no good! Who knew they were working on a Novel virus?
Yeah, what a piece of shard.
But... but tablets! If Netbooks were so great then Apple would have invented them.
Besides, tablets are way more expensive than Netbooks, in the enterprise. I haven't used a Windows tablet that doesn't suck; when the executives eventually get their toys and decide they want to do some useful work on them, IT has to buy 100 licenses of VMware View (the minimum purchase) and four back-end servers for the ten users who use it.
I do not for the life of me understand this blind push to 64bit when there is no demonstrable speed improvement.
Part of the problem is all Firefox tabs and windows are part of the same process, unlike IE (and I believe Chrome). So, if a misbehaved AJAX app in one tab uses a gig and a half, every browser window becomes unusable. If FF were 64-bit, then it could use the 8GB or 16GB found in most new machines to mask the problem.
YOUR MOVE, ATHEISTS!
So you'll see it's just a cheap PC, running an old version of Windows, connected across the stores crappy unsecure Wifi which probably talks to the software vendor across the open internet.
That is absolutely not possible. They're PCI certified!
Before I had a toddler running around the house, I always purchased the "organic" milk from the grocery. I didn't care about the organic part, but since it didn't sell as well as "normal" milk it was ultra pasteurized and would last for several weeks. (Lactaid is also ultra-pasteurized, but costs more.) I couldn't notice a taste difference.
Now that I have a toddler, our milk consumption has gone from 1/2 gallon every two weeks to 2-3 gallons per week, so expiration dates are far less interesting.
This assumes the desired end result is toast, not bread.
Some Broadcom chips include features that seem to work like a TDR: http://ja.broadcom.com/products/BCM5397
I first noticed them in HP G4 servers, there was a diagnostic page that would test all four pairs of wires and show a graph in addition to pass/fail. It also measured the cable length, so maybe it used TDR. For some reason I seem to think they removed that feature from newer driver versions though.
With Microsoft's NoReplyAll add-in with Exchange a user can disable reply-all (or forward) on a per-message basis. That page has links to the documentation on how to do it.
I'm sure the developer was thinking, "Who would even think of trying to hack a pacemaker? Who would even want to?"
Unfortunately, it only takes one sociopath.
Yeah, but there are a lot of developers are sociopaths. Fortunately one of the people who discovered this went public with the information.
To the moon, Sarah!
