"Where do hosts get bypassed no mind? Windows Update ONLY stupid fuck!"

And every browser, and any program can be programmed to bypass HOSTs, proven time and time again with a simple GOOGLE SEARCH - how? Ignore fucking DNS resolution in the OS and do it yourself (ever hear of ZenMate for Chrome? It does exactly that.)

USELESS. This is why IP blocking works best.

BTW, you can simply bypass HOSTs if a piece of malware simply removes the user permissions from HOSTs. Pretty shitty 'security.'

"Windows doesn't block hosts fool (only 4 windows update)"

I didn't say Windows blocks HOSTs - now you're putting words in my mouth you incompetent fuck.

But it still bypasses it for Windows update? THAT IS EXACTLY WHY HOSTS IS USELESS!

If I fucking say YOU DO NOT GO THERE and yet the computer STILL GOES THERE, then HOSTs is BROKEN.

That you cannot accept this logic is proof that you're insane, untrustworthy, and a FRAUD.

Meanwhile, as Vice President of one of the oldest mineralogical societies in California, I've secured their entire network exactly as I described and ran a full-out attempt to get any ad to display on our computers.


I just block the largest ad networks off the bat by wildcard IP and it's fucking done in my router. ZERO ADS TOUCH ME.

Apparently, you're not smart enough to figure out that the ad companies paid for static IPs for easy configuration, in whole blocks. Just block the entire fucking range.

Code line reduction by four fucking orders of magnitude.

Meanwhile, back to my job as Vice President and certified gemologist, LOSER.

I based the estimate on $5o for a cartridge that prints an average of 3,000 pages. A color laser would be nice, but as you say, far more expensive both in up-front costs and toner. And changing toner in a color printer is a PITA, at least the ones at work were.

If you can read memory arbitrarily via this exploit, your sandbox is most certainly NOT secure. It's just another step to modifying memory contents after that and getting a full breakout.

This exploit looks to be especially effective against cloud architecture as it currently stands.

A whole lot of machines are inherently more compromised as a result of this, too. Because the idiot manufacturers do things like hard-locking a 64-bit system to 2GB of RAM (TOSHIBA and DELL and HP,) it makes ASLR essentially fucking useless, as it's a lot easier to attack the machine since there's much lower surface area to attack via the MMU.

"Here's a news flash: Iran is mountainous. Mountains provide cover against air power. Mountains block armour."

Here's a bigger news flash - we've had the stuff to not give a fuck about mountains AT ALL since the 70's. Not my problem your commanders refuse to give you proper fucking outfitting.

My grandfather was Lt. Col USMC. I've been on plenty of bases. You've got the fucking equipment, you just are not given it because you're too stupid to requisition it (which is why you're a soldier in the first place.)
