Bootkit Bypasses TrueCrypt Encryption

Alanceil Re:Much as we hate TPM here on /. (192 comments)

Why not use a shellscript at boot-time for this ?
Something along the lines of "dd if=/dev/sda bs=512 count=1 2> /dev/null | sha1sum",
it should be enough to check for differences in output.

Edit-Approval System Proposed For English-Language Wikipedia

Alanceil Re:not smart (439 comments)

The german wikipedia has this system for quite a while now, and it works pretty well. Approvals for edits (sighted) come in fast, and that's the criteria for displaying your edit. The next level would be a confirmation by an expert, but I have yet to find an article that has this flag.
