Reciepe for building a cheap Raspberry Pi honeypot network

mask.of.sanity (1228908) writes | 1 hour ago


mask.of.sanity (1228908) writes "Honeypots are the perfect bait for corporate IT shops to detect hackers targeting and already within their networks and now a guide has been published to build a dirt cheap battalion of the devices from Raspberry Pis. "By running honeypots on our internal network, we are able to detect anomalous events. We gain awareness and insight into our network when network hosts interact with a Raspberry Pi honeypot sensor," the author explained."

Law Repressing Social Media, Bloggers Now in Effect in Russia

Anonymous Coward writes | 5 hours ago


An anonymous reader writes "On Friday, Russia implemented a new law that significantly limits its citizens' online free speech. Under this new law, social media sites must "retain user data for at least six months...within the country's boundaries so it can be available for government inspection." Also, "bloggers with at least 3,000 daily readers must register with Roskomnadzor, the regulator that also oversees Russia's main media outlets." This, of course, means that popular bloggers will no longer be able to remain anonymous."

Google+ Photos To Be Separated From Google+

Anonymous Coward writes | 5 hours ago


An anonymous reader writes "Speculation on the eventual shuttering of Google+ has once more risen with news that Google+ Photos will soon be developed and run separately from the social media site. This news follows observations that Google+ "was barely mentioned at Google I/O 2014, while there were 15 sessions dedicated to the service in 2013" and that the company has ended its controversial real name policy. Google Hangouts was also separated from Google+ at the end of July."

Driverless buses ruled out for London, for now

Anonymous Coward writes | 5 hours ago


An anonymous reader writes "The office of the Mayor of London went into a bit of a panic this week after their own paper suggested that driverless buses could appear on the streets of the UK's capital at some point in the next four decades. The Mayor's office went so far as to suggest that they were really talking about driverless underground trains. Even more bizarre was the reaction of the city's taxi drivers' association — whose spokesperson claimed that the fauilure to deliver "simple" software tasks such as speech recognition meant there was no chance of driverless buses appearing on London's streets."

DNA project 'to make UK world genetic research leader'

mrspoonsi (2955715) writes | 6 hours ago


mrspoonsi (2955715) writes "A project aiming to revolutionise medicine by unlocking the secrets of DNA is under way in centres across England. Prime Minister David Cameron has said it "will see the UK lead the world in genetic research within years". The first genetic codes of people with cancer or rare diseases, out of a target of 100,000, have been sequenced. Experts believe it will lead to targeted therapies and could make chemotherapy "a thing of the past". Just one human genome contains more than three billion base pairs — the building blocks of DNA. Prof Jeremy Farrar, director of the Wellcome Trust, said: "I can see a future where genetics is going to come into every bit of medicine from cardiology to oncology to infectious diseases." "Twenty years from now there's going to be a plethora of those, we will have a series of mutations which academics and industry will have developed therapies for, which will be targeted at you and specific for that cancer." He said chemotherapy, which attacks all dividing cells in the body, would be replaced with such therapies. "We will look back in 20 years' time and think of blockbuster chemotherapy [as] a thing of the past and we'll think 'Gosh, what an era that was'." David Cameron has announced a series of investments across government, industry and charities totalling £300m ($500m)."

Microsoft files legal action against Samsung over Android patent dispute

DroidJason1 (3589319) writes | 6 hours ago


DroidJason1 (3589319) writes "Microsoft has filed a contract dispute lawsuit against Samsung over what Microsoft claims is a breach of contract by Samsung involving Android patent royalties. Back in 2011, Samsung voluntarily entered into a legally binding contract with Microsoft in a cross-licensing IP agreement involving Android patents. Samsung has grown over the past few years and now believes that Microsoft's recent acquisition of Nokia nulls the agreement. Microsoft has taken it to court and is asking to settle the disagreement with Samsung in order to continue the original agreement. No word yet from Samsung as to why they have decided to change their mind."

Elon Musk promises 100,000 cars a year. Tesla stock soars.

Dave Knott (2917251) writes | 7 hours ago


Dave Knott (2917251) writes "Tesla stock was up five per cent on Friday morning after CEO Elon Musk said the electric-car company would deliver 100,000 vehicles next year. Its earnings report released Thursday shows Tesla continues to operate at a loss as it spends on engineering and setting up an assembly line for its Model X SUV, which is scheduled to go into production early next year. But investors were cheered by the news that the company would deliver 100,000 vehicles next year, up from 22,000 in 2013 and a projected 35,000 this year.
Tesla reported a loss of $61.9 million in its second quarter, compared with a loss of $30.5 million in the same quarter a year ago. Revenue nearly doubled to $769.3 million, missing Wall Street's forecast of $801.9 million, but expenses were also up as Tesla prepares some ambitious projects, spending $93 million in the quarter on research and development alone. Musk said that number will increase by 20 per cent in the third quarter. While the Model X is in development, the longer-term plan is for a cheaper, mass-market car, the Model 3, to be launched in 2017. The biggest investment Tesla will make is in its large lithium-ion production plant, to be built at an as-yet-unnamed U.S. location in a $5-billion partnership with Panasonic."

Programmers Tools Group Test: Linux Text Editors

jrepin (667425) writes | 7 hours ago


jrepin (667425) writes "In this group test Mayank Sharma of Linux Voices looks at five humble text editors that are more than capable of heavy-lifting texting duties. They can highlight syntax and auto-indent code just as effortlessly as they can spellcheck documents. You can use them to record macros and manage code snippets just as easily as you can copy/paste plain text. Some simple text editors even exceed their design goals thanks to plugins that infuse them with capabilities to rival text-centric apps from other genres. They can take on the duties of a source code editor and even an Integrated Development Environment."

Researchers Jailbreak iOS 7.1.2

mikejuk (1801200) writes | 8 hours ago


mikejuk (1801200) writes "The constant war to jailbreak and patch iOS has taken another step in favor of the jailbreakers. Georgia Tech researchers have found a way to jailbreak the current version of iOS. What the Georgia Tech team has discovered is a way to break in by a multi-step attack. After analysing the patches put in place to stop previous attacks, the team worked out a sequence that would jailbreak any modern iPhone. The team stresses the importance of patching all of the threats, and not just closing one vulnerability and assuming that it renders others unusable as an attack method.
It is claimed that the hack works with any iOS 7.1.2 using device including the iPhone 5s.
It is worth noting that the The Device Freedom Prize ( for an open source jailbreak of iOS7 is still unclaimed and stands at just over $30,000.
The details are to be revealed at the forthcoming Black Hat USA (August 6 & 7 Las Vegas) in a session titled Exploiting Unpatched iOS Vulnerabilities for Fun and Profit:"

Ask Slashdot: IT Personnel as Ostriches?

MonOptIt (3772391) writes | 8 hours ago


MonOptIt (3772391) writes "I'm a new IT professional, having recently switched from a different sci/tech field. My first FT gig is with a midsize (50ish) nonprofit which includes a wide variety of departments and functions. I'm the sole on-site IT support, which means that I'm working with every employee/department regularly both at HQ and off-site locations.
My questions for the seasoned (peppered? paprikaed? plum-sauced?) pros are:
Do you find yourself deliberately ignoring office politics, overheard conversations, open documents or emails, etc as you go about your work?
If not, how do you preserve the impartiality/neutrality which seems (to my novice mind) necessary to be effective in this position?
In either case: how do you deal with the possibility of accidentally learning something you're not supposed to know? E.g. troubleshooting a user's email program when they've left sensitive/eyes-only emails open on their workstation. Are there protections or policies that are standard, or is this a legal and professional gray-area?"

How You Control Wheelspin At 1,100 MPH

cartechboy (2660665) writes | 9 hours ago


cartechboy (2660665) writes "We've covered the Bloodhound SSC before because it's being built to go at least 1,000 mph. That's just crazy. Throughout the car's development the team has kept us updated on how it's constructing and testing various components. The latest development has the team testing the wheels to ensure they won't explode at 1,100 mph. How do you test such a thing? You run the wheel up to 1,100 mph and see what happens, naturally. We know the record speed attempt will be live streamed for all to view, so if something catastrophic does happen, we'll know about it as it's happening. In the past we've learned about the Bloodhound SSC's anatomy, brakes, and engine. The team is clearly working hard to ensure both the driver's safety and the ability to control the car in case the worst happens. The question still remains: will the Bloodhound SSC actually break the speed record and hit 1,000 mph, safely?"

Enhancing Safety and Security in a Digital World

aarondubrow (1866212) writes | 10 hours ago


aarondubrow (1866212) writes "As our lives and businesses become ever more intertwined with networked technologies, the nation must continue to improve cybersecurity measures to keep our data, devices and critical systems safe, private and accessible. Yesterday, the National Science Foundation announced two new center-scale "Frontier" awards that address grand challenges in cybersecurity. In particular, they'll support research into modular cloud computing security and "program obfuscation," where an entire program (and not just its output) are encrypted. The awards are part a diverse $74.5 million portfolio that includes more than 225 new projects in 39 states."

Google Mystery Barge Sold For Scrap

An anonymous reader writes "The barge, sitting in Portland's harbor, was originally intended as a showroom for Glass and other gadgets has been sold and will be dismantled and sold for scrap.

Given Glass' perception problem of only being a toy for the tech 1%, it seems Google is getting away from promoting it in private, invite only events on the mystery boats."

Austrian law student takes Facebook to court; asks others to join in

hypnosec (2231454) writes | 11 hours ago


hypnosec (2231454) writes "Max Schrems, an Austrian law student, on Friday called out billions of Facebook users to support him by joining a class-action lawsuit against Facebook for violating users’ privacy laws. Schrems has filed a law suit at Vienna's commercial court and has also invited others to join the action at using their Facebook login. According to campaign, the Austrian law allows for a group of people to assign their claims to a single person in this case, Schrems, who can sue on their behalf and redistribute any damages awarded. In such a case, legal proceedings are then run as a class action. Schrems is claiming 500 Euros ($670) per user from Facebook in damages for allegedly violating data privacy policies, including its participation in the US National Security Agency’s Prism surveillance programme aimed at accessing the personal data of Facebook and other web services users, its graph search feature, use of “big data” systems for spying on users as well as company’s non-compliance with EU privacy law."

Twitter Used To Catch Car Thief in Seattle

Anonymous Coward writes | 12 hours ago


An anonymous reader writes "Police in Seattle arrested a man for stealing a car after witnesses identified the stolen vehicle through the twitter account @getyourcarback, which Seattle Police uses to tweet descriptive information about recently stolen cars.

Witnesses at a city park took photos and video of two men using a screwdriver to gain entry (and remove the driver's door handle and toss it into the trash) into a parked car. That content along with a description of events was uploaded to along with a photo of the license plate.

A quick search for that license plate showed that the vehicle had been stolen that same day."

AMD Launches New Higher-End Kaveri APUs A10-7800 And A6-7400K

MojoKid (1002251) writes | 12 hours ago


MojoKid (1002251) writes "AMD updated its family of Kaveri-based A-Series APUs for desktop systems recently, namely the A10-7800 and the A6-7400K. The A10-7800 has 12 total compute cores, 4 CPU and 8 GPU cores, with average and maximum turbo clock speeds of 3.5GHz and 3.9GHz, respectively. The A6-7400K arrives with 6 total cores (2CPU, 4 GPU) and with the same clock frequencies. All of the new Kaveri-based APUs launched have configurable TDPs, and support for AMD proprietary technologies like TrueAudio and Mantle, and they have HSA (Heterogenous System Architecture) features as well. The AMD A10-7800 APU's performance is somewhat mixed, though it is a decent performer overall. Its Steamroller-based CPU cores do not do much to make up ground versus Intel's processors, so in the more CPU-bound workloads, Intel's dual-core Core i3-4330 competes favorably to AMD's quad-cores. And in terms of IPC and single-thread performance Intel maintains a big lead. Factor graphics into the equation, however, and the tides turn completely. The GCN-based graphics engine in Kaveri is a major step-up over the previous-gen, and much more powerful than Intel's mainstream offerings. The A10-7800's power consumption characteristics are also more desirable versus the Richland-based A10-6800K."
