Redmancometh Re: Anyone still going to the movies? (357 comments)

Yeah even amc 24 (in a good area) in Houston which is shit..doesnt smell..3min for a ticket, is cold as fuck, and has reasonable volume....but $12 cokes and $15 popcorn.

Movie tavern is amazing, reasonably priced food (REAL food - full meals), a full bar, and plush-ish office chair seating.

LAX To London Flight Delayed Over "Al-Quida" Wi-Fi Name

Redmancometh Re:This was no AP. (339 comments)

Or rather the airline should have to refund a portion of everyone's ticket for the sheer ridiculousness of delaying a flight over this.

Lost Opportunity? Windows 10 Has the Same Minimum PC Requirements As Vista

Redmancometh Re:Why still 32bit builds? (554 comments)

Writing a program of appreciable complexity in C is a massive pain in the ass without pointers. It is also beyond the ability of junior C developers.

In fact I don't know how you'd do any complex abstraction without function/struct pointers.

Also pointers can be highly performant when used properly...

Friendly Reminder: Do Not Place Your iPhone In a Microwave

Redmancometh Re:Also... (240 comments)

Very, very few ovens have that sensor. Only the latest-and-greated which most people don't have, and even then not even close to all of them.

Or are you talking about induction stove tops?

That's a tough one. I'd put my money on the SEC, but if it was prison rules it'd be the NSA.

Why Are the World's Scientists Continuing To Take Chances With Smallpox?

Redmancometh Re: The problem is... (190 comments)

The cowpox trick for sure, and possibly others.

There was the case where some of the weaponized agent got out and infected some people who were vaccinated.

Critroni Crypto Ransomware Seen Using Tor for Command and Control

Redmancometh Re: Angler PC malware? (122 comments)

You do have a point, but I trust the Debian repos 100%. They are so behind that I figure if there was malware in them...someone would have said so by now.

I have yet to hear of a single case of this happening. Granted, that could just mean they are better at covering their tracks..

Why Are the World's Scientists Continuing To Take Chances With Smallpox?

Redmancometh Re: The problem is... (190 comments)

The vaccine is ineffective against the "cooked" strain which Russia tried to weaponize, and we keep at USAMRID. Look into the India-1 strain.

Critroni Crypto Ransomware Seen Using Tor for Command and Control

Redmancometh Re: Antivirus (122 comments)

So if I write an application for everyday users I get to pay/request to be added to the whitelist of every AV people use?

That probably wont kill independent software development.

Ask Slashdot: Where to Sell a Vulnerability

Redmancometh Redmancometh writes  |  about a year ago

Redmancometh (2676319) writes "A friend of mine (mostly him), and I recently found a vulnerability in skype that allows for massive leaks of information. I've never heard of it, so I believe it would be considered a 0-day, and I believe it would be invaluable to blackhats.

I contacted Microsoft and was told they don't offer compensation for skype vulnerabilities at this time. I don't care about having my name on the technet blog, and I pretty much just want money.

My question is rather simple:

Who do I sell this to? I would strongly prefer I sell it to a whitehat company, or organization. I don't know the legality of selling it to blackhats, but it's certainly not out of the question.

Have any of you had an experience with this?"
