In a company, talent isn't important. You need to be perceived as having talent that makes the company a profit, and whether or not that perception matches reality isn't really important.

The rest of what you wrote about communication is spot on, but this conclusion in a bit too cynical, in my opinion.

Talent is important, otherwise there's nothing to advertise. There's only so much that you can do to mediocre work to make it appear great to higher-ups, and most managers will still prefer to advertise the work that's the most easiest to advertise.

Talent + communication = success. Communication alone will get you further than talent alone, but neither can compete when you have both.

Comment Passwords are special. SHA-1 is much too fast (Score 3, Interesting) 81

You are absolutely correct for SHA-1 hashes of random data, of significant length. Passwords, however, are neither random nor long. I'll describe the attack for you and you can try it out yourself. The fact that an ordinary consumer PC can compute SHA-1 password hashes at the rate 10 billion per second is why SHA-1 is no longer appropriate for passwords. Here's how the attack is done:

Download two large lists of passwords, any "combined list" from your favorite haxor site will do. It doesn't matter what sites the passwords are from. If you run a comparison, you'll find that given two lists of a million passwords, about half of the passwords will be on both lists - with different accounts. That is, there is about a 50/50 chance that your password is in the list because somebody else used the same password. You probably know it's not too hard to find lists totaling many millions of passwords (we don't need fresh ones). If we put together a list of 10 million passwords, most of the Disqus passwords will be on our list, because SOMEBODY used the same password (not necessarily the same person).

So we take the first, most common password on our list of previously seen passwords and try it against each of the 17 million hashes from Disqus. Because SHA-1 is so fast, our $100 GPU can check all 17 million hashes in one millisecond. In one second, we can try the top thousand most common passwords. In 24 hours, we can test out 10 MILLION passwords that somebody, somewhere, has used before, and thereby crack perhaps 8 million of the Disqus passwords - which gives us the email addresses to match those passwords.

For passwords, therefore, you need a hash that can't be easily computed at the rate of billions per second with commodity hardware. Bcrypt and scrypt are appropriate choices. To avoid certain problems with particularly long or particularly short passwords, you first take a SHA-2 hash of the password, then scrypt it.*

* In the general case of random data, hashing a hash doesn't add security. Passwords, however are not the general case.

I see many have beaten me to it but ... a city requires a population of thousands, so no. A town? Perhaps.

First you need to select a suitable location, build the necessary infrastructure (habitats, greenhouses for food and oxygen and handling waste, etc.) then you need to transport the residents. Building a city on Earth from planning to actually calling it a city takes years, and that's when you don't have to transport everything hundreds of millions of miles to do so. Building a city on Mars, starting from nothing? A century probably. And that's if we start today and devote the necessary resources. As both of those (starting now and necessary resources) seem unlikely - maybe by 2200 we could call it a city.

Browsers Will Store Credit Card Details Similar To How They Save Passwords ( 182

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Bleeping Computer: A new W3C standard is slowly creeping into current browser implementations, a standard that will simplify the way people make payments online. Called the Payment Request API, this new standard relies on users entering and storing payment card details inside browsers, just like they currently do with passwords. The API is also a godsend for the security and e-commerce industry since it spares store owners from having to store payment card data on their servers. This means less regulation and no more fears that an online store might expose card data when getting hacked. By moving the storage of payment card details in the browser, the responsibility of keeping these details safe is moved to the browser and the user. Browsers that support the Payment Request API include Google Chrome, who first added support for it in Chrome for Android 53 in August 2016, and added desktop support last month with the release of Chrome 61. Microsoft Edge also supports the Payment Request API since September 2016, but the feature requires that users register a Microsoft Wallet account before using it. Firefox and Safari are still working on supporting the API, and so are browser implementations from Facebook and Samsung, both eager to provide a simpler payment mechanism than the one in use today.

                        Subject: Re: Question

                        I didn't have a BlackBerry. What I did do was have a personal computer that was hooked up to a private phone line (sounds ancient.) So I could communicate with a wide range of friends directly without it going through the State Department servers. I even used it to do business with some foreign leaders and some of the senior folks in the Department on their personal email accounts. I did the same thing on the road in hotels.

                        Now, the real issue had to do with PDAs, as we called them a few years ago before BlackBerry became a noun. And the issue was DS would not allow them into the secure spaces, especially up your way. When I asked why not they gave me all kinds of nonsense about how they gave out signals that could be read by spies, etc. Same reason they tried to keep mobile phones out of the suite. I had numerous meetings with them. We even opened one up for them to try to explain to me why it was more dangerous than say, a remote control for one of the many tvs in the suite. Or something embedded in my shoe heel. They never satisfied me and NSA/CIA wouldn't back off. So, we just went about our business and stopped asking. I had an ancient version of a PDA and used it. In general, the suite was so sealed that it is hard to get signals in or out wirelessly.

                        However, there is a real danger. If it is public that you have a BlackBerry and it is governmend and your are using it, government or not, to do business, it may become an official record and subject to the law. Readingi about the President's BB rules this morning, it sounds like it won't be as useful as it used to be. Be very careful. I got around it all by not saaying much and not using systems that captured the data.

                        You will find DS driving you crazy if you let them. They had Maddy tied up in knots. I refused to let them live in my house or build a place on my property. They found an empty garage half a block away. On weekends, I drove my beloved cars around town without them following me. I promised I would have a phone and not be gone more than an hour or two at Tysons or the hardware store. They hated it and asked me to sign a letter relieving them of responsibility if I got whacked while doing that. I gladly did. Spontaneity was my security. They wanted to have two to three guys follow me around the building all the time. I said if they were doing their job guarding the place, they didn't need to follow me. I relented and let one guy follow me one
