Submission + - What do you do when the Military squats your ASN. (breaksecurity.com)

Auraka writes: There have been multiple times where we have seen global routing go back. Like the ever so famous Pakistan Telecom incident when while trying to block Youtube for Pakistan they blocked it for the world and when China Telecommunications leaked a bunch of prefixes onto the internet. These things happen, but what do you do when the U.S. Military starts announcing prefixes through your AS number, you let them.

Submission + - Intel Insider DRM Risks Monopoly Investigations (thinq.co.uk)

Blacklaw writes: Intel's Sandy Bridge line of processors is impressing the tech community with its power, but a sneaky little feature designed to appease Hollywood has some concerned about Intel's intentions: Intel Insider.
If a major video streaming service, such as Lovefilm or the US-based Hulu, were to implement Intel Insider technology on their movie streams — as a way of convincing Hollywood to release films sooner and in high definition without worrying about piracy — it would mean that only those who use Intel's very latest Sandy Bridge CPUs would be able to stream movies. Not only would those using older Intel chips that don't support the technology be cut off from the service, but those on systems featuring CPUs from rival manufacturers such as AMD and low-power specialist VIA would also be excluded.
