A cash register is likely going to be some sort of PC
Funny enough, I see these more than anything lately.
You get stability, ease of use, timely updates, excellent security,
You can't be serious? What are these $300 android phones with "ease of use" (ie non brain dead skins), "timely updates" that don't take 6 months to make it through the carrier, if ever (at least in the US) and "excellent security" ? you have to be kidding me. FWIW I'm sitting here with an iPhone SE and an LG Nexus, so I'm far from a fanboy, but let's be honest with ourselves here. My LG is a cheap backup that lets me play with Android. I didn't buy it because it runs great after a couple years or has "excellent security".
I always wondered why one would pay over US$900 for something that has functionality of other devices at half the cost; and would be "obsolete" in a year.
Stability, ease of use, frequency of updates, much better overall security, etc, etc. iPhone is far from obsolete in 1-2 years, they receive updates for at least four.
Both attack bursts originated from spoofed IPs, making it impossible to trace the botnet's actual geo-location or learn anything about the nature of the attacking devices.
For that matter, I used to have a program that would connect to a unix server and multiplex 7 virtual VT100 windows, of which about three would be running Lynx, on my 68000 based Macintosh Portable.
...ok, checks out
Or course nobody in power can say it outloud or it wouldn't work.
Bingo, that's the only problem with the plan.
(only downside, if the middle east gets too hot, the oil money will help the Ruskys).
That's a good point, but with fracking we can keep it under control to a certain degree.
I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
