How does Intellectual Ventures describe itself? See for yourself here.
Is it realistic to be looking for a position as a programmer at a research institution with my current skills and experiences? Do such jobs even exist for non-graduate students? I'm willing to go to grad school (probably for geology) if necessary. Grad school aside, what specific technologies should I learn in order to gain an edge? Although if I went back to school I'd focus on geology, I'm otherwise open to working as a programmer for any researchers in the natural sciences who will take me.
Microsoft has apparently known that accounts can be hijacked since at least 2012 when The Hacker News reported the Hotmail and Outlook cookie-handling vulnerability, so Bowne was curious if Microsoft closed the hole or if stolen cookies could still be re-used. He claims he "easily reproduced it using Chrome and the Edit This Cookie extension."
Bowne is asking other people to test more services and tweet the results to him @sambowne.
At any rate, the following books deal in their own unique way with surveillance. Some address the surveillance head-on, while others speculate on inter-personal intelligence gathering, or consider the subject in more oblique ways. Still others distill surveillance down to its essence: as just one face of a much larger, all-encompassing system of control, that proceeds from the top of the pyramid down to its base.
Duo Security announced the availability of an Android utility dubbed “ReKey” (http://www.rekey.io/) on Tuesday. The tool allows Droid users to patch the so-called “Master Key” vulnerability on Android devices, even in the absence of a security update from Android handset makers (OEMs) and carriers who service the phones, according to a post on the Duo Security blog.
In an e-mail exchange with The Security Ledger, Jon Oberheide, the CTO of Duo Security, said that ReKey provides an in-memory patch for the master key vulnerability, dynamically instrumenting the Dalvik bytecode routines where the vulnerability originates, patching it in-memory. Oberheide said that ReKey will also”hook” (or monitor) those routines to notify you if any malicious applications attempt to exploit the vulnerability.
Despite the availability of a patch since March, many Android users remain vulnerable to attacks that take advantage of the application signing flaw. That is because Android handset makers have been slow to issue updates for their Droid handsets. For platforms (HTC and Samsung) that have been patched, carriers delayed the rollout to customers further.
“The security of Android devices worldwide is paralyzed by the slow patching practices of mobile carriers and other parties in the Android ecosystem,” said Oberheide. However, the fragmentation of the Android ecosystem is significant enough that it is no longer feasible for Google to take over responsibility for distributing patches. Third parties may need to step in to fill the void.
An API is planned "in the coming weeks".
"The particular shape of Sandy's trajectory is very peculiar, and that's very rare, on the order of once every 700 years," said senior scientist at NASA and study co-author, Timothy Hall. According to Hall, the extreme flooding associated with the storm was also due to the storm’s trajectory which was described as being “near perpendicular.” The storm’s unusual track was found to have been caused by a high tides associated with a full moon and high pressure that forced the storm to move off the coast of the Western North Atlantic.
The security firm Malwarebytes first spotted this latest threat, noting that criminals have ported the ransomware scheme to OS X and are even exploiting a Safari-specific feature. The ransomware page in question gets pushed onto unsuspecting users browsing high-trafficked sites as well as when searching for popular keywords.
IMPORTANT: The North Korean ship detained by Panama was bound FROM Cuba not FOR Cuba. Please make this correction to my original submission.
Usually these notices ask Google to get rid of links to pirate sites, but for some reason the cable network also wants Google to
The same DMCA notice also lists various other links that don’t appear to link to HBO content, including a lot of porn related material, Ben Harper’s album Give Till It’s Gone, Naruto, free Java applets and Prince of Persia 5.
A quote from the proposed bill Arizona House Bill 2467
"Beginning in the 20132014 school year, In addition to fulfilling the course of study and assessment requirements prescribed in this chapter, before a pupil is allowed to graduate from a public high school in this state, the principal or head teacher of the school shall verify in writing that the pupil has recited the following oath:
I, _________, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge these duties; So help me God. "
I wonder if any of you slashies have worked a solution for this that is not too complex, works preferably at the SMTP relay, and can work with ZIPed PDFs as well, or otherwise have some common sense advice for dealing with this so that once its in place, there is no further action required by myself or by users.
Attached please find a document entitled “What Base Text to Use for the Do Not Track Compliance Specification.” For tonight, the document will speak for itself. It is available at: http://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/2013-july-decision/
The Tracking Protection Working Group was chartered “to improve user privacy and user control by defining mechanisms for expressing user preferences around Web tracking and for blocking or allowing Web tracking elements.” The group reached an important series of decision points this summer, when participants submitted change proposals after the May face-to-face meeting. The co-chairs here record the group decision on one change proposal that presents a fork in the road, after the Digital Advertising Alliance and related participants asked to move to a new draft text. After consideration, the chairs have determined that the group has rejected that change proposal, finding it at odds with our chartered aims and the weight of group consensus.
The question before the group was whether to change its base text for the continued work on the Compliance Specification, to adopt the version proposed by the DAA or to continue addressing issues against the text proposed to the group in June. We conclude, based on the comments submitted, that the June Draft provides a better basis from which to address the criteria for a W3C standard, as understood in the Working Group, than does than the DAA Proposal. We thus will continue to use the June Draft as the base text and work through the remaining issues raised. We will not revisit the choices presented in the DAA change proposal and rejected in this decision.
The moon, which is currently known as S/2004 N1, was found on July 1 by Mark Showalter of the SETI Institute in Mountain View, Calif., NASA announced Monday.
It is less than 20 kilometres wide and its orbit is 105,000 kilometres from Neptune, between those of Larissa and Proteus, two of Neptune's other 14 known moons. It circles Neptune once every 23 hours.
The study also found that when it comes to early versions of software, like betas, developers release, or nightlies, the numbers were actually a lot higher with Chrome users averaging around 70% in clickthrough rates. It is not clear why Chrome users are so “daring”, but one of the authors in the study believed that false positives are one of the reasons, plus it could also be attributed to differing levels of competence. “Warning fatigue” is also one of the reasons the author attributed to Chrome users ignoring security warnings more than Firefox users, but what do you guys make of this study? Are you a Chrome user who goes ahead and views the website despite having received a warning about potential danger?
