Hackers Used Nasty "SMB Worm" Attack Toolkit Against Sony

X.25 Re:Supreme Leader (177 comments)

What I really want to know is how did the FBI figure out it was the work of North Korean government agents. Except for a privileged few, North Koreans are completely blocked off from the outside world and would never hear of this movie even if it won more Oscars than the Titanic. Why would North Korea reveal its capabilities and tactics in such dramatic fashion to achieve nothing of any value. It seems to me that all the speculation that was in the news recently about Kim's disappearance from public life and his possible overthrow was far more damaging to the cult of the Supreme Leader than some silly comedy.

Ssssssssssshhhhhhhhhh. You're asking questions, you shouldn't do that.

Just trust the government.

Kim Dotcom Faces Jail At Bail Hearing

X.25 Re:He's not in jail, despite admitting guilt (166 comments)

You may notice he's not in jail. You may also notice all the evidence, including emails he wrote, is pretty much 100% showing he's guilty. Heck, he even had a personalized license plate made - GUILTY. He's bragging about it. The one and only difference between him and any other criminal caught on tape is that he "gave" you free shit (that wasn't his to give).

Do you realize that not a single thing that you wrote has any connection to reality?

Of course you do. That's why you write it.

US Gov't Seeks To Keep Megaupload Assets Because Kim Dotcom Is a Fugitive

X.25 Re:Wait what? (173 comments)

The man runs what amounts to organized crime as a conspiracy supporting international copyright infringement in violation of domestic laws and trade agreements in force in many countries. He runs this from New Zealand.

What the fuck? How do you get this brainwashed?

Worrying Aspects of Linux Gaming

X.25 Warthunder was a big one (for me) (265 comments)

Just tried Warthunder on Linux 2 days ago and was shocked to see that it simply worked like no other game on Linux ever before.

No crashes, runs in fullscreen mode well and yet I can switch workspaces without breaking it. Sound works well, incredibly fast on my old machine. Just amazing.

For me, this is a big milestone, because I am so used to Linux games ('bigger' ones) not working properly - especially on release day.

A Mysterious Piece of Russian Space Junk Does Maneuvers

X.25 Re:No big issue (146 comments)

It's just that Russia are eating Western dust, and have been doing so for ages. They've probably cobbled together a total POS and launched it, just to show the world they can 'compete' in high-tech with the likes of the (extraordinarily capable) X-37b.

Putin is just being a dickhead, and in this case, wasting money showboating. Just a high-tech analog of the usual publicity stunt of getting topless and blasting small furry animals. Nothing new there.

Mongoloids like you are the reason I barely read any news these days.

Proposed Penalty For UK Hackers Who "Damage National Security": Life

X.25 Re:Don't do the crime (165 comments)

I know this is a radical idea, and I'm just spitballing here, but maybe the part about unauthorized act being done a computer should be a hint. If it's not your computer or your system, don't try to get into it.

Or are we going to use excuses as to why it's acceptable to try and get into someone else's equipment when you're not supposed to then whine about the penalty when you're found out?

How can you people be so shallow?

Did you even read anything about the topic you are commenting on?

U.S. Threatened Massive Fine To Force Yahoo To Release Data

X.25 Re:Yahoo knew fine was a bluff (223 comments)

How can you fine someone for not cooperating in activities that the government refused to even admit existed?

Because people in "free world", over the course of last 40-50 years, allowed governments to heavy regulate every aspect of their lives. That includes companies too, obviously.

So, whether you know it or not, you are breaking laws and regulations every single day. Literally.

All it takes is for them to have a reason to go after you.

This is one of the reasons why "I don't care if government spies on me, I have nothing to hide" attitude is beyond retarded. But people don't understand it until shit happens to them.

Then it's too late.

Ontario Government Wants To Regulate the Internet

X.25 Re:Government doesn't get it. (184 comments)

Government doesn't get it. They don't control

Ermm... you are wrong.

They are controlling it, and they have been working on controlling Internet for years now.

Although many people used to say "They can't win", they actually did win some time ago.

This is a denial phase, I guess.

The Argument For a Hypersonic Missile Testing Ban

X.25 Re:They will just cheat anyway (322 comments)

Jesus: Russia signed a treaty to not invade Ukraine, in exchange for Ukraine's nuclear disarmament. Ukraine disarmed. First nation to do so in the history of nuclear weapons. Then Russia invaded. You want to trust them with another treaty? Suckers!

I seriously can't figure out what is wrong with you people.

Russia invaded? Do you mind showing some evidence for those claims, or you just like spreading shit that you read in mainstream media?

You know how invasion looks like? If you are not sure, you can always take a look at invasion of Iraq by 'coallition of the willing' to get the idea. Or you can also look at invasion of Kuwait by Iraq to get an idea. There are many examples.

But pretending that civili war (and I've lived through 2 of them, so I kind of know much better than you how it starts/looks like/ends) is an invasion just shows hypocrisy and ignorance.

Hackers Behind Biggest-Ever Password Theft Begin Attacks

X.25 Hahaha (107 comments)

Of course, it could not been any of thousand brute force attacks that is happening every day.


It was a brute force attack by bad baby eating state sponsored Russian hackers, specifically using the imaginary end-of-the-world password list.

Of course, neither the "1.2 billion passwords" list, nor the "they're using it against Namecheap" events were/are cheap advertising.

Put A Red Cross PSA In Front Of the ISIS Beheading Video

X.25 But it's ok to view videos of drone/air strikes (300 comments)

Or videos of disasters that affected hundreds if not thousands of people.

Or videos of killings in civil (and other) wars.

Or videos of plane crashes.

And list goes on and on and on.

But hey - make sure noone sees the video of beheading done by very same people US government has been supporting.

Because that could make US government look more bad (as if it's even possible anymore).

Hackers Claim PlayStation Network Take-Down

X.25 Re:Should of never got rid of other OS and outsorc (97 comments)

Mainly because I don't see MSN Live players complaining about loss of service, do you? XBox owners don't have any reason to fear losing next weekend services, while PSN users will live the week worrying about.

Yeah, I can assure you that Playstation owners can't sleep properly and all they think during the work hours is whether PSN will be down next weekend.

Are you 12?
