HP Tells us Botnets are not funny,FAA’s New Rules for Drones,America Uses her Submarines to engage in Cyber Warfare!

New rules for drones from the FAA

New rules from the FAA for the commercial & recreational drone industry – You don’t need permission from the FAA to fly your UAS (aka drone) for fun or recreation, but you do need to tell them about it, and label the UAS with registration numbers.  We understand they want to have a way to track these things, but really it is a reach to ask people to put registration numbers on the side of these small drones.  Anyways how will they enforce this, how would they know a small drone was in the air?  What would the punishment be for not registering UAS and just out of the box you go straight to flying? Well the registry web site says this about that very question, “You will be subject to civil and criminal penalties if you meet the criteria to register an unmanned aircraft and do not register.” we want a little more information, the website is saying you must register but then in another sentence it states “A federal agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, nor shall a person be subject to a penalty for failure to comply with a collection of information subject to the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act unless that collection of information displays a currently valid OMB Control Number.”  WHAT?!  So we don’t have to do this lets say if we don’t have internet access?  A small bit of confusion there..  After some more investigation we uncovered this, “Federal law requires UAS operators to show the certificate of registration to any Federal, State, or local law enforcement officer if asked. You can show it electronically or show the printed certificate.”  Well we still don’t know what the penalty would be or how they would enforce this.  So to wrap this up you have to register your Drones, if you don’t do it you are breaking the law.  What will the penalty be well we are not sure.  If you want to look into this further here is the link for all the info we can find.   Confused as they are?!

photo of submarines - Steampunk style - JPG

America uses stealthy submarines for cyber attacks on other countries’ systems – The U.S. approach to this digital battleground is pretty advanced. For example: Did you know that the military uses its submarines as underwater hacking platforms?  In fact, subs represent an important component of America’s cyber strategy. They act defensively to protect themselves and the country from digital attack, but — more interestingly — they also have a role to play in carrying out cyberattacks, according to two U.S. Navy officials at a recent Washington conference.  One of America’s premier hacker subs, the USS Annapolis, is hooked into a much wider U.S. spying net that was disclosed as part of the 2013 Edward Snowden leaks, according to Adam Weinstein and William Arkin, writing last year for Gawker’s intelligence and national security blog, Phase Zero. A leaked slide showed that in a typical week, the Navy performs hundreds of so-called “computer network exploitations,” many of which are likely the result of submarine-based hacking. “Annapolis and its sisters are the infiltrators of the new new of cyber warfare,” wrote Arkin and Weinstein, “getting close to whatever enemy — inside their defensive zones — to jam and emit and spoof and hack. They do this through mast-mounted antennas and collection systems atop the conning tower, some of them one-of-a-kind devices made for hard to reach or specific targets, all of them black boxes of future war.” But even this doesn’t compare to what the Navy wants to be able to do next: turn its submarines into motherships for underwater drones that can maneuver themselves even closer to shore and conduct jamming or hacking operations while allowing the sub to work at a distance.  Would be very cool to see the inside of one of these subs, and to see what they are actually capable of in terms of Cyber Attack.  Take out a city power grid without a bomb or emp?  That would be something…

HP warns us about Botnets

HP warns us about Botnets – We just checked the mail and noticed HP (Hewlert Packard) has just posted an article about botnets and the dangers and how to avoid them etc, etc.  Pretty interesting read … Botnets might sound like a funny term, but there’s nothing funny about the damage they can inflict on your business. These united mobs of computers have the power to hamper your bottom line, prompt customer angst, and deliver an ongoing series of frustrating, performance-altering problems. Most often, you won’t even realize the damage botnets are causing until it’s too late.  Click here to read the full Enewsletter.  There is some useful info for the black hat in all of us as well as the white hat!

Hackers Steal $65 Million in Bitcoin From Hong Kong Exchange – Hong Kong-based bitcoin and digital currency exchange Bitfinex revealed a massive breach of nearly 120,000 bitconi, approximately $65 million in current exchange rates. Bitfinex is among the largest exchanges in the world with offices in Europe and the United States and offers a platform to trade and exchange digital currencies such as bitcoin and ether.  The exchange’s website is also suspended temporarily. “Today we discovered a security breach that requires us to halt all trading on Bitfinex, as well as halt all digital token deposits to and withdrawals from Bitfinex,” a statement read. “We are investigating the breach to determine what happened, but we know that some of our users have had their bitcoins stolen.” Bloomberg quoted Fred Ehrsam, the co-founder of San Francisco-based digital currency exchange Coinbase, who stated that “a large breach”. Representatives from Bitfinex also told the publication that hackers took 119,756 bitcoin, or about $65 million at current prices. The Hong Kong exchange was notable the largest for USD-denominated transactions over the past month. Altogether, over $1.5 billion has been wiped from bitcoin’s market capitalization this week alone. The company has reported the breach and the theft to law enforcement. It plans on going through customers’ losses individually through their accounts, noting that it may need to settle open margin positions, collateral and associated financing affected as a result of the breach. The Bitfinex attack is similar to that of Tokyo-based now-defunct bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox. The Asian exchange filed for bankruptcy in early 2014 after hackers stole a reported $650 million worth of customer bitcoins.

New App for Pokemon Go!

Everyone is Pokémon Crazy here is a new app – PokeFit, from P3 communications, helps Pokémon trainers get a real-time grasp on the positive health benefits they’re getting by playing Pokemon Go. The app also keeps a log of your sessions, giving you a breakdown of how long each lasted and how much distance you traveled during your trip, and when you’re using Pokemon Go, it displays a small rectangular frame in the upper left corner of your screen, providing quick access at a glance. The app has another special power trainers will welcome: You can use it to override your screen’s timeout settings, keeping the display on Android devices from going dark while you’re out tracking down your Pokémon’s. The app also tracks battery usage and data spent while playing Pokemon Go, which might be eye-opening info for frequent players.  That new $300.00 phone bill you just got well now you know were all your data went.  Poor loosers!

Peek.com and Yelp team up!

Peek.com raises $10 million and partners with YelpPeek.com has raised $10 million in equity funding to become an “OpenTable for the $100 billion activities market,” according to CEO and co-founder Ruzwana Bashir.  Based in San Francisco, with additional offices in Salt Lake City, Utah, Peek.com lets travelers, and locals, find and book activities such as tours, tastings and lessons, online or via mobile.  The Peek.com site features verified customer reviews, and shows activities’ availability, including for same day bookings.  The startup, which employs about 80 full-time today, also provides online tools, Peek Pro, to help tour operators manage their business online.  Because their businesses often requires them to be out in the field, Peek Pro is designed for mobile first.  To generate revenue, Peek.com takes transactional fees from tour operators for customers they book through Peek.com or on their own sites using Peek Pro.  While Peek.com is regarded as “travel tech,” and a competitor to activity booking sites like Viator.com (now owned by TripAdvisor), Zozi.com or IfOnly.com, Bashir sees her business as equal parts travel and “vertical SaaS” she said.  Wow very surprised there is this much market for this type of business, seems there is a lot of room for more startups in this area! (hint!)

More new stuff in the works for game Pokemon go

Pokemon Go is getting more Pokemon, trading, and customizable PokeStops – Pokemon players eventually will be able to fill out their collections via trades, which is good news for people eyeing region-specific Pokemon like Australia’s Kangaskhan from the other side of the world. Niantic CEO John Hanke revealed at a San Diego Comic Con panel that Niantic is working on adding trading (and new training features) to their game, as well as customizable PokeStops and more Pokemon from later generations of the Nintendo franchise.  One of the most interesting things Hanke discussed that might get implemented soon are custom PokeStops. The idea, as described by Hanke, is that players could get alternate items that would function like Lures (you add to PokeStops to attract more Pokemon to the area), but that would change the Stops in different ways. Hanke suggested, for instance, than an object could turn a PokeStop into a healing location, making it a temporary PokeCenter. You could also imagine items that help a PokeStop attract a certain type of Pokemon, like an all-electric Lure, or something that sets what kind of items the PokeStop provides to trainers that activate it.  New Pokemon are confirmed. Currently, only the original 150 Pokemon included in Pokemon Red/Blue are present in Pokemon Go for trainers to catch, but Hanke told the panel that the company is “looking forward to finding interesting ways” to incorporate Pokemon “beyond first generation” into the Go realm.  Trading has been a feature of Pokemon since the original generation of games, and it makes sense for Go: You’ve likely already had the experience where you’ve doubled up on some kind of Pokemon while out with a friend and wish you could just swap with them for something you need to get a different one to evolve. Breeding, too, is another Pokemon series staple, which makes sense as a more targeted way to generate Eggs for players to hatch.  (breeding is a little much for a childs game, seems mommy and daddy might have to explain to Jr. what breeding is, we think it is better to just leave that part out!)  New features of course can and will take months or years to implement, so don’t expect this stuff by Christmas!

Amazon earnings shatter expectations

Amazon destroys earnings expectations – Amazon shattered expectations when it reported second quarter earnings after the bell on Thursday. Adjusted earnings per share came in at $1.78, when Wall Street was forecasting a meegar $1.11. Amazon also beat revenue predictions, posting $30.4 billion for the quarter when analysts were expecting $29.55 billion. Shares ticked up 2 percent in after-hours trading. The company saw a significant increase in sales and profit from the same period last year. Net sales were up 31 percent and net income was $857 million, a large jump from last year’s $92 million. Amazon also spent many years unprofitable, while it invested in growth. In a statement, CEO Jeff Bezos touted the early success of their Indian business. “The team in India is inventing at a torrid pace, and we’re very grateful to our Indian customers for their welcoming response.” The company announced that it expects its revenue for the third quarter to be between $31 billion and $33.5 billion. Operating income had a wide range, forecasting somewhere between $50 and $650 million. (This shit must be nice!) Amazon tends to make a lot of experimental bets. They had an early attraction with their Alexa voice-activated personal assistant device. They have also built up momentum in their Amazon Web Services division, providing storage and cloud services for many large businesses.  AWS has seen significant growth. The group accounted for $2.9 billion of Amazon’s quarterly revenue, up from $1.8 billion in the same period last year.  The company has built a robust Prime business, where users pay annual subscriptions for faster shipping and access to content like movies and music.  Amazon created its own discount holiday last year called Prime Day. The sales day generated significant traction this year and will be included in next quarter’s earnings.  Amazon is a great company and we love to see any company that just slaps ebay in the face!  With numbers like that ebay had all the shit slapped out of their lame ass service and site!

Android add-ons for 3rd party apps

Android Add-ons for you Mobile device – Google announced Android add-ons for Docs and Sheets, an easier way to use third-party services when working with Google’s office programs on your mobile device. These Android add-ons are available within downloadable applications available on the Google Play store, as well as within both Google Docs and Sheets. The add-ons let you do things like pull in CRM data into your spreadsheet, or get a contract ready for e-signing, among other things, explains Google. The company worked with several partners on the initial set of add-ons. For example, DocuSign‘s add-on will allow you to trigger or complete a signing process in Docs or Sheets. ProsperWorks lets you pull CRM data into Google Sheets. AppSheet lets you create mobile apps from data in Sheets, and Scanbot lets you scan business documents using OCR then insert their content into Docs as editable text. Other partners include PandaDoc, ZohoCRM, Teacher Aide, and EasyBib. Plus, Google has introduced its own add-on for Classroom, its educational platform.  In addition to Google Play, the add-ons can be accessing from add-ons menus in both Google Docs and Sheets on mobile, the company says.  Add-ons have been common to office desktop software programs for years, as well as online productivity software. Google also has an extensive list of third-party plugins that work with Google Apps and Google Drive.  This mobile-first approach from Google addresses the fact that many more people are using their office programs not just via the web, but on their phones, as well.  The collection of supported Android Add-ons is available here in Google Play. It will likely expand over time as more partners come on board, which is for sure going to happen!

Yahoo! bought by Verizon

Yahoo as you knew it – As we stated in an earlier post, Yahoo was done as we know it.  Verizon is buying Yahoo for $4.83 billion in a deal that marks the end of an era for a company that defined much of the early internet but struggled to stay relevant in an online world dominated by Google and Facebook.  It’s the second time in as many years that Verizon has snapped up the remnants of a fallen internet star. The nation’s largest wireless carrier paid $4.4 billion for AOL last year. The two brands will be rolled into the same operation.  “We have enormous respect for what Yahoo has accomplished: This transaction is about unleashing Yahoo’s full potential,” AOL CEO Tim Armstrong said in a statement. Despite Yahoo’s travails, its operations are a prize for Verizon, which wants to capitalize on the growing number of people living their digital lives on smartphones. The company already profits from the data plans that connect more than 100 million people and their devices to the internet. Now it’s making plans to control more of the advertising on those devices.  Most analysts expect the deal to end the four-year reign of Yahoo’s Mayer, who flopped in her much-watched attempt to turn around the company that was once a titan valued at $130 billion.  Really it doesn’t matter if she stays or goes, she has failed to right the company and now will just be a front row paid audience member to watch Yahoo get assimilated into Verizon.  Great job bitch!  When the sale is complete early next year, Yahoo will become a holding company for its two stakes in China’s e-commerce leader, Alibaba Group, and Yahoo Japan. Those investments, which were made more than a decade ago, are worth more than $40 billion before taxes, making them by far the most valuable pieces of Yahoo. The holding company will drop the Yahoo name and adopt a new identify after Verizon takes control of the operating business. (bye bye Yahoo) The name change is a strong indication that Verizon intends to retain the Yahoo brand on many services, an idea that Mayer told the AP came up in the preliminary discussions leading up to the deal. “The Yahoo brand still holds a lot of consumer-affinity” and could help Verizon overcome the lukewarm feelings that many subscribers have toward their wireless service providers, said Forrester Research analyst Shar VanBoskirk. Until the sale is done, Yahoo’s users should not see any major changes in the company’s mobile apps or websites, yeah including email.  Mayer, 41, is the latest in a succession of Yahoo CEOs who could not engineer a comeback. Yahoo’s annual revenue, after subtracting ad commissions, has declined by about 20 percent from $4.4 billion before Mayer’s arrival to a projected $3.5 billion this year.  But Mayer told the AP she does not consider her tenure to be a failure. Are you joking? It was most def a failure! She pointed to a 50 percent increase in Yahoo’s total worldwide audience to more than 1 billion users, including 600 million people who now visit on mobile device, three times more than before her arrival.  So the growth of the internet and additions of Asia and India as emerging markets she is going to take credit for? LOL really!  What a piece of work she is!  Yahoo’s stock fell $1.06 Monday to close at $38.32. The shares have more than doubled since Mayer became Yahoo’s CEO, largely because of the rising value of the Alibaba stake, and nothing to do at all with her taking over as CEO.  We will miss you Yahoo, and you still and will always have a warm fuzzy part in our hearts!

More layoffs for the smartphone section of Microsoft

MS ditching more jobs in its Smartphone business – Microsoft says it is cutting 2,850 jobs, about 2.5 percent of its workforce, as it further scales back its troubled smartphone business. A spokeswoman says the layoffs will mostly affect workers in the company’s smartphone hardware operation and related sales teams. Which geographic locations would be affected is not clear but many of the laid off workers had already been notified. Microsoft Corp. disclosed the planned job cuts in a regulatory filing, which said they’re in addition to 9,250 previous layoffs, primarily affecting the company’s phone business, over the last 12 months.  The giant tech company reported earlier this month that its revenue fell 9 percent in the previous 12 months, but its net income grew 38 percent as it shed unprofitable operations like the phone business.

Torrent sites are on notice from USA,Kickasstorrent founder setup and arrested,Yahoo falls again,Netflix just took a hit it cannot recover from! Read more!

Kickasstorrents founder busted!

The U.S. Government has arrested the alleged owner of KickassTorrents – The founder of the world’s largest torrent site seems to have been nabbed in a sting type international operation.  The 30-year-old Ukrainian was arrested in Poland today and is charged with criminal copyright infringement and money laundering. In addition, a federal court in Chicago has ordered the seizure of several KAT domain names.  With millions of unique visitors per day KickassTorrents (KAT) has become the most-used torrent site on the Internet, beating even The Pirate Bay.  They have been raking in the advertisement cash for years, (Billions!) so he can deffinately afford an attorney and any bond they set.  U.S. authorities announced the arrest of the site’s alleged owner.  The 30-year-old Artem Vaulin, from Ukraine, was arrested today in Poland from where the United States has requested his extradition.  In a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago, the owner is charged with conspiracy to commit criminal copyright infringement, conspiracy to commit money laundering, and two counts of criminal copyright infringement.   The complaint further reveals that the feds posed as an advertiser, which revealed a bank account associated with the site. It also shows that Apple handed over personal details of Vaulin after the investigator cross-referenced an IP-address used for an iTunes transaction with an IP-address that was used to login to KAT’s Facebook account. “Records provided by Apple showed that tirm@me.com conducted an iTunes transaction using IP Address 109.86.226.203 on or about July 31, 2015. The same IP Address was used on the same day to login into the KAT Facebook,” the complaint reads.  In addition to the arrest in Poland, the court also granted the seizure of a bank account associated with KickassTorrents, as well as several of the site’s domain names.   Now is this the end for the huge ass popular torrent site?  Probably not, look at Pirate Bay still going strong even though they serve up ads that infect your pc constantly people still go there to download movies games whatever.  The proxies will keep it alive for a while and the current advertisement will run In a loop until the campaign ends.  This case will have some difficulties but if he gets extradited he will deffinately do some years in a federal prison, just because of the amount of money this site made!  He can turn snitch and get a break we will see, the fallout from this is far from over.  If we were connected in any way to that torrent site we would be very worried!!

Going bust, Yahoo stays in the game a little to long value has fallen

Yahoo’s disappointing quarter sums up the past few years – They have hung in there for quite some time though, but it is inevitable that Yahoo has been doomed for years.  They should have already sold the company along time ago!  Yahoo’s core business has been in decline for some time. Even before Marissa Mayer‘s takeover in 2012 the company was on a dangerous south march. Mayer’s hiring sparked some hope in the company that new leadership would right Yahoo’s direction and return it to growth. After all, Yahoo had a strong core brand and a large existing audience.  The story for the past few months has all been who will end up buying Yahoo’s core assets. This may indeed have been the last time Yahoo will report its financials, and it’s not surprising that it was kind of a meh result.  The company for its second quarter reported earnings of 9 cents per share on revenue of $1.31 billon. The company also said it was reporting a $395 million non-cash goodwill charge related to Tumblr (meaning, once again, it’s writing down the acquisition for whatever reason). Analysts were expecting earnings of 10 cents per share on revenue of $1.08 billion. Revenue last year was $1.24 billion with earnings of 16 cents per share.  That is not chump change, but the decline is to much.  Yahoo has been with us for quite some time it has seen a lot come and go, seems now It will see its own demise!  Yahoo as you know it is gone!

New Headset from Razor!

Razer opens pre-orders for OSVR HDK 2 virtual reality headset – Razer announced it is opening up pre-orders for the second OSVR development kit, called the HDK 2. Available for $399 and a new 2160×1200, low-persistence OLED display running at 90 frames per second. This should theoretically put the HDK 2’s optics in the same weight class as the Rift and Vive.  The devices will begin shipping July 29. Consumers who order a device through July 28 will receive two free bundled games, Descent: Underground and Radial G: Racing Revolved. The headset has been particularly popular among hacker types who are itching to experiment with new types of input and haptics without having to wait for Oculus or HTC to get their hardware support act together. The headset doesn’t include controllers, but OSVR supports input from dozens of hardware manufacturers, including Nod and Leap Motion.  OSVR’s open-sourced development platform is a bit of a harder sell to developers who are a bit ambivalent thanks to how easy game engines like Unity and Unreal are making it to port games to multiple VR platforms.

Netflix takes a huge loss! stocks plumit!Netflix subscriber numbers fall, stock collapses – Netflix reported disappointing Q2 numbers after the closing bell and shares plunged 15%. The company added just 160,000 domestic subscribers in the second quarter, which fell far short of the already reduced guidance of 500,000 additions. For the third quarter, the company said it now expects 300,000 domestic subscriber additions, compared with expectations for 750,000 to 800,000.  The company added only 1.5 million international subscribers, compared with guidance of 2 million. For the third quarter, the company said it now expects 2 million international subscribers, compared with 2.7 to 2.85 million subscribers expected. Guidance includes anticipated impact of the Olympics, which will attract the attention of many viewers “We are growing, but not as fast as we would like or have been,” management said. “Disrupting a big market can be bumpy, but the opportunity ahead is as big as ever and we continue to improve every aspect of our business.” Revenue of $1.2 billion was inline was guidance while earnings per share of $0.09 beat expectations, but guidance on earnings per share for the coming quarter was seen as disappointing, at $0.05 versus $0.08. Into the Monday’s close, the streaming company’s stock had already fallen 14% year-to-date compared with a rise in the S&P 500 of 6%. After plummeting amid market volatility in January, the stock was dealt another blow after slashing subscriber additions for the second quarter back in April.  So lets see, Twitter, Yahoo and Netflix are all for sale!  High bid gets it! (not officially announced but you can bank on it!)

ABC relaunches its app

ABC relaunches its streaming service – ABC has relaunched its streaming service in an effort to better target cord cutters, with an expanded lineup of shows, including dozens of “throwback” series as well as six or seven, new digital short-form series and over 40 more in development. The app, features a redesigned interface for iOS and Apple TV devices, also offers up exclusive content for pay TV subscribers, including the ability to watch live television in select markets.  The content is also available on the web at Abc.go.com. Along with new programming, the updated application has been given a “update” in terms of its user interface. Now, alot easier to navigate through the content, and the app has organized series into thematic collections, like “drama,” “funny,” “reality,” etc.  The new app, which is free and ad-supported, is available on iTunes and on Apple TV. The new content line up is also available online.

Google post-quantum AI

Google Quantum Cryptography – Google has launched an experiment with post-quantum cryptography in Chrome. A small fraction of connections between Google’s servers and Chrome on the desktop will use a post-quantum key-exchange algorithm in addition to the elliptic-curve key-exchange algorithm already being used. The idea is that large quantum computers eventually might be able to break current security algorithms retroactively.  The experiment employs the New Hope algorithm, which Google considered the most promising post-quantum key-exchange among those it investigated last year. Its aim is to gain real-world experience with the larger data structures post-quantum algorithms  most likely will require. Layering the post-quantum algorithm on top of the existing algorithm allows the experiment to proceed without affecting user security, Google said.  Google pledged to discontinue the experiment within two years, emphasizing that it did not want to establish its selected post-quantum algorithm as a de facto standard.  (well be careful they might have just did that!) Googles announcement doesn’t herald in a new era, but it goes further to confirm that quantum computing-resistant algorithms will provide significant competitive advantage for anyone who has the IP for them.  Just a small side note, the United States National Security Agency early this year published a FAQ on implementing post-quantum crypto.

Ashley Madison under investigation – The United States Federal Trade Commission has launched an investigation into philanderers’ dating site Ashley Madison.  The company, which suffered a massive data breach last year that resulted in extortion attempts and ruined lives, as well as a class-action lawsuits, this week announced that it hired a new CEO and a new president in April.  CEO Rob Segal and President James Millership have revealed that Ashley Madison had been using fembots — computer programs responding like real women — to conduct conversations with some of its paying male customers worldwide. The fembots have been shut down, confirmed an Ernst & Young report commissioned by Ashley Madison’s parent company, Avid Life Media. The use of fembots might have triggered the probe by the FTC, which is tasked with guarding against consumer fraud, among other things. The FTC declined to confirm or deny whether it is conducting an investigation, because “FTC investigations are nonpublic,” spokesperson Jay Mayfield told the E-Commerce Times. Mean while Ashley Madison is quit as a church mouse.  HAHAHA them fembots took advantage of unsuspecting Young Males that used the service, that is a bit deceitful don’t you think?  Just could have hired some female temps and put them on a keyboard.  Come on don’t let the dating site idea die with FEMBOTS!  (Still in shock about fembots!) they should be fined for misleading their own paying customers!  Did the fembots offer online chat sex chat? (NOPE!)

FCC and privacy

FCC’s Internet Privacy Proposal Sparks Congressional Action – The FCC proposal focuses on Internet service providers. It wants to ensure that ISPs will be subject to federal regulation regarding the protection of consumer data, with the authority for enforcing that regulation resting with the commission. (With the recent victory the FCC had it wants to use its powers to keep an eye on ISP’s especially the big ones. ATT,Comcast,Time Warner, etc.  All traffic is to be treated equally no traffic on the web gets special treatment with special BW boost, or ISP’s purposely throttling connections.) ISPs and other e-commerce entities claim that the FCC is exceeding its legal authority, and that the e-commerce privacy regulation regime already established by the Federal Trade Commission is sufficient. They not only have submitted critical comments to the FCC, but also have taken their case to Congress.  “The FTC has long supported federal legislation that will address data security and breach notification that would apply to all companies, including telecommunications carriers,” This is where we support the FCC as well.  If LinkedIn or Myspace gets hacked all its users have a right to know the extent of the hack and they need that information in a timely fashion to protect the now exposed users other accounts and or assets online!  No company should be allowed to with hold any information on a breach into their systems that threaten user privacy or their very lively hood!  The time limit to report a FULL REPORT about a HACK that happened to any company that offers itself publicly should not be no more then 10 Business days.  This two years later shit is why we are still seeing hack fallouts from the old 2012-13-14-15 Mega Hacks.  Look for example Facebooks CEO got hacked because of the information that was hacked was put online on the dark web and well most people use the same password for all internet sites therefor it was no big feat just to go look on the hacked list and look for important people like Mark Zuckerburg and go try his password on all social media websites.  The reason that this happened was well the same password was being used on a lot of sites, and LinkedIn and Myspace for example did not give full disclosure on how significant the hack was and how much data was taken and how sensitive that data was.  I think they came back a year later or maybe two and finally released all the information about the hacks.  (Way to late and damn sure should have been help liable and fined!)  Please FCC fix this shit, they must be transparent when reporting breaches to there systems, and diligent on there time!  They cannot govern themselves so please give a time (number of days) any company has to report that it has been hacked.  We say 90 days is max, and actually 10 Biz days is the best model!

Blizzard suing Overwatch cheat makers for copyright infringement – In a lawsuit filed Friday in a federal court in California, Blizzard said that the different cheating tools Bossland has released, including the Watchover Tyrant, has caused “irreparable damage” for the company. The video game publisher said its games survive and thrive on “being enjoyable and fair for players of all skill levels, and Blizzard expends an enormous amount of time and money to ensure that this is the case.” With tools like the Watchover Tyrant so readily accessible for Overwatch players to download, however, it destroys the “integrity of the Blizzard Games, thereby alienating and frustrating legitimate players and diverting revenue from Blizzard,” according to the lawsuit. So this all boils down to, this is a lawsuit over Cheating apps, scripts, progs, this will be very interesting to see what the out come will be. Blizzard isn’t the only publisher seeking legal action against cheat tool makers for copyright infringement and unfair competition. Last month, Epic Games filed a lawsuit against a German gamer that the developer said created a game-cheating hack for its MOBA title, Paragon, that was being sold for a monthly subscription fee.  You know why don’t Blizzard do a spin off company that just makes cheat programs for their games and sells them right to the same people that buy the game.  Well that is just us thinking out side the box, maybe they don’t think that way over there at Blizzard.

Juno arrives at Jupiter

An Epic 5 year journey comes to its destination,  Juno enters Jupiter’s orbit – July 4th 2016, After five years of preparations and another five years hurtling solo through space, the solar-powered Juno spacecraft on Monday entered Jupiter’s orbit, ahead of 20 months circling the gas giant. In that time, Juno will make 37 trips around Jupiter, becoming the first spacecraft to orbit the planet’s poles, getting within 3,100 miles (5,000 kilometers) of the cloud tops. As part of the mission, members of the public will be able to choose points of interest for the spacecraft’s JunoCam to capture color photos,and a chance to process them and share them online. NASA said Juno’s official function will be to provide “new answers to ongoing mysteries about the planet’s core, composition and magnetic fields.” NASA even took some passengers along for the ride, commissioning Lego to create three custom minifigs. The astronomer Galileo, the Roman goddess Juno and the Roman god Jupiter are now in orbit and taking in a fantastic view of Jupiter and that is pretty cool!  You want to check out some cool images of Jupiter or Juno click here for the official site.

10 million Android devices reportedly infected with Chinese malware – At least 10 million Android devices have been infected by malware called HummingBad, according to cybersecurity software maker Check Point.  Check Point, which has been tracking the malware since it was discovered in February, has released an analysis of the threat. For months, the number of infections were steady but they spiked sharply in mid-May. HummingBad began as a “Automtic download attack,” in which phones were infected when people visited certain websites. “The first component attempts to gain root access on a device with rootkit [software] that exploits multiple vulnerabilities. If successful, attackers gain full access to a device,” Check Point stated. “If rooting fails, a second component uses a fake system update notification, tricking users into granting HummingBad system-level permissions.” This access is used to generate fraudulent advertising revenue — apparently up to $300,000 per month — through the forced downloading of apps and clicking of ads.  Wow that’s a nice clip for a group of corp. hackers @ Yingmob.  Not bad at all, there is only suppose to be some 280,000 phones infected in the U.S.  What is funny is if you happen to be one of the rooted devices, you wont know it.  This is actually a pretty good hack, and the challenge to find and rid the 300k USA devices of HummingBad, is going to be just as big of a fix.  (Factory reset)
