There was a large Time Warner outage a week or two back... it was blamed on a fiber cut in DC (that fed this area). Makes me wonder if it's just a coincidence...
"Other information gained via XKEYSCORE facilitates the remote exploitation of target computers. By extracting browser fingerprint and operating system versions from Internet traffic, the system allows analysts to quickly assess the exploitability of a target. Brossard, the security researcher, said that “NSA has built an impressively complete set of automated hacking tools for their analysts to use.” Given the breadth of information collected by XKEYSCORE, accessing and exploiting a target’s online activity is a matter of a few mouse clicks. Brossard explains: “The amount of work an analyst has to perform to actually break into remote computers over the Internet seems ridiculously reduced — we are talking minutes, if not seconds. Simple. As easy as typing a few words in Google.”

I just wanted to say "thanks" for many, many hours playing your games. Well done, sir!
Red for stupidity.
thank you for capturing my thoughts on this so succinctly...
it's an **awful idea**
the idea might be a bit half-baked
imho, it's not a bit half-baked, it's all the way...*this idea is awful*
my first thought was, in order to detect on females you have to have intercourse first, which kind of defeats the purpose...also, checking the color (i can just see the antics w/ attempting to use a cell phone light...) is also going to be more awkward than any of the alternatives
these ideas never leave the concept stage
if something like a condom can indicate this, just make a test swab or something...it's already awkward having to stop and turn on the light to check the color...
But Microsoft is the one who dictates what technology Samsung must play nice with...
The difficulty is first with Microsoft, and Samsung's 'fix' wouldn't be necessary without it.
This isn't the first time an OEM has compromised the security of its users.
Blame has to go to Microsoft *first*...it's illogical to blame the cart for something the horse chose to do.
nitpick - the Victorian pink really was just pale red, rather than the crazy hot pink we have nowadays (hooray for synthetics!).
Your point stands.
I basically agree, but have a nitpick: the old boy's color was more red than pink - since the advent of synthetic colors we have a lot more variety. Blue was definitely a girly color in the past.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Tattoo Recognition Technology Challenge Workshop challenged industry and academia to work towards developing an automated image-based tattoo matching technology. Participating organizations in the challenge used a FBI -supplied dataset of thousands of images of tattoos from government databases. They were challenged to develop methods for identifying a tattoo in an image, identifying visually similar or related tattoos from different subjects; identifying the same tattoo image from the same subject over time; identifying a small region of interest that is contained in a larger image; and identifying a tattoo from a visually similar image like a sketch or scanned print.
The company already mulls expanding its production principle to other, lucrative wild animal trades such as the claws of tigers and lions. Pembient is however a young company — for all their ingenuity, will their ambitions to take on such a colossal black market be realized?
Mr. Krebs, thank you for the time.
My question is about defining "computer security" in relation to public perceptions vs technical facts.
It was reported in 2006 that the NSA was keeping massive databases of American's phone calls and metadata: http://yahoo.usatoday.com/news...
Obviously, Snowden's revelations were much more heavily reported, and contained more info, but the public was shocked at information that was already public.
When it comes to cyber security customers, how do you explain and contextualize what service you are providing given the vast differences in perception of "security"?
Heck, we aren't talking about some banana republic here. Or are we?
I see you're not up to date with current german politics. We are.
Merkel doesn't give a flying fuck because she really doesn't give a fuck about anything. She was trained very well how to get into and stay in power, and that's the only thing she's doing. Every move of her makes sense if you analyze it from that perspective. This is no different - big trouble with the USA is not a career-improving path, but the people of Germany are too forgiving and will let her and her party get away with all this shit.
