In Kapitalist Amerika, TV watches YOU!
Thank you, for devolving this into a Monty Python joke!
lolz you beat me to it!
I was going to say
"the other 30% get it from Fox News. Source: Fox News"
Just another payola scam, nothing to see here folks...
I believe this is where Google has a datacenter that consumes hydroelectric power.
And if you are really serious about finding backdoors, etc, you wont just pore over the source code, but do a thorough analysis side-by-side with the disassembled binaries in IDA, and look for unexpected things...
^ this one. ding ding ding.
Paraphrasing old Brucie on this:
Why would an attacker spend time trying to get through your steel-plated triple-deadbolted front door, when they can throw a rock through your kitchen window and crawl in?
All it takes are some unchallengeable secret court orders, and off to your nearest cloud/service provider to suck down all your datas.
It's always interesting to see what (some of the best attempts at) intentional code obfuscation can look like:
Why backdoor just one brand of compiler (since there are several), when you could backdoor the architecture?
I'm pretty sure there is a special sequence of intel instructions which open the unicorn gate, and pipe a copy of all memory writes to NSA's server.
because Sang Mun == anagram for "Man Guns"
And you will not take any pictures, play any games, listen to music, or work on a computer!
It's worse than just that. Starting my gripe:
I wanted to buy a $2.80 rubber dust cap (for the usb and hdmi ports) on the side of my nikon d3100. That is one of the very few "user replaceable" parts that "Nikon Parts" website sells. The shipping on the $2.80 rubber cap? Try more than 10 dollars. I think it was 12 bucks or something to ship to Texas. Now that is a straight rip-off, but when I checked it seems that the "Nikon Parts" online store isn't really Nikon but being run by somebody else. So seems I cant even get parts from Nikon.
hrmm. When I buy certain chips/kits from TI's websites, it made me go through an export control interview and application.
What if you are buying from a non-US distributor in a non-US country. Do US trade/export laws still apply?
Chinese AC troll?
