Now THAT is precious... Since when is spying illegal in the US? They even tamper with other people's hardware, suck up the data of whole countries, deploy MITM attacks on the backbone and more.
Really, they should just shut up and at least not become a bunch of spineless hypocrites.
Bullshit. I use Firefox since years, and it has been 64 bit for ages. Also, it rarely crashes (I think the last time it crashed for me was some time last year, but really, don't remember details). The main source fore restarts are the high-frequency updates.
Any type of redundancy is enough to fix errors, as long as you have at least one correct copy. raidz has one copy redundancy, raidz2 has two copies redundancy, and mirrored drives have as much redundancy as you want.
Incorrect. The PIN should never leave the device. It should be encrypted by the key pad for the chip on the card, and only that chip should be able to read it, decode it, and then sign the transaction as valid and authenticated.
Again, the PIN should NEVER leave the device.
Aaron B Lingwood writes: As reported by TorrentFreak, Viacom, Paramount, Fox and Lionsgate have all asked Google to take down links pointing to the Pirate Bay documentary 'TPB-AFK'. The film, created by Simon Klose, is available for no cost and has already been watched by millions of people. The public response to this free release model has been overwhelmingly positive, but it’s now meeting resistance from Hollywood, TPB’s arch rival.
Pirate Party Australia opines 'Hollywood is using takedown notices to censor Pirate Bay doco, is it incompetence or malice? Always hard to tell'. Whichever the answer, the system is definately broken.
No, honestly, writing evil code in C is easy. You can open files without restrictions, modify them without restrictions, and so on, all with the power of the running user. Executing untrusted C code is NOT SECURE.
Executing random C code from somewhere on the net in a Browser is even dumber than doing the same with Java. Java at least has a security model, even if it's broken anew every week, and has more holes than a sieve. C on the other hand has nothing. It really is more or less like a portable Assembly Language as it was developed for.
