Hackers Behind Biggest-Ever Password Theft Begin Attacks

X.25 Hahaha (95 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?

"Magic Helmet" For F-35 Ready For Delivery

X.25 Re:Watch the F-35 get blown out of the skies (184 comments)

because the russian missiles worked so well in iraq in 1990 and 2003?

F-35 + electronic warfare will destroy the russian missile batteries

I certainly hope, for your sake, that your generals are smarter than you.

Whoever posted this "news" is a fucking idiot.

Maldives Denies Russian Claims That Secret Service Kidnapped a Politician's Son

X.25 Re:Consipricy nuts, go! (100 comments)

If you're going to throw around ad hominem attacks coupled with suppositions, you should attack the the Russian leader for hating the Ukraine for its perceived turn towards the power that has warrants out for his son.

NSA Considers Linux Journal Readers, Tor (And Linux?) Users "Extremists"

X.25 Re:Actually they're saying they are going to watch (361 comments)

This is why a lot of political groups in the US are being labeled as extremists. Because there are some people in those groups that do crazy stuff like make bombs. Practically none of them do that but one out of a million does... and they need to watch for that.

There are some Americans that make bombs.

Better watch all of them. Just in case.

NSA Considers Linux Journal Readers, Tor (And Linux?) Users "Extremists"

X.25 Re:Well, of course (361 comments)

Oh, irony.

See, a rational person would have looked at what's going and concluded that the NSA's position is "of course you're more likely to be an extremist" rather than "of course you must be an extremist". But self-styled "free-thinkers" such as yourself always seem to tend toward these extreme, paranoid views that barely resemble the actual situation. It's almost as if you tended towards extremism or something.

Kiddo, the "you're a conspiracy theorist" line doesn't work anymore.

You should really try something new.

The Latest Wave of Cyberattacks On the West Is Coming From the Middle East

X.25 An ad for some crappy company called FireEye (56 comments)

Oh look, a completely retarded "article" on a vendor site which just happens to sell 'solutions' to fight these "Middle Eastern attacks".

Get fucked Slashdot "editors", how could you even allow a piece of shit like that gets posted?

I can get a moto g for 179 $ that has more software, a quad core processor and a better screen. This won't cut it.

Apples. Oranges. And all that.

Jesus, now I understand why your leaders call you 'consumers' and not 'citizens' these days...

When you listen to them planning to kill you, and you fire a rocket at their car, it is war.

"they hate you for your freedoms"

Why Lavabit Shut Down

X.25 Re:USA, the land of freedom (304 comments)

Not really. The US is not particularly dependent on foreign trade. Sure there would be some dislocations but it would likely remain a superpower.

I don't think you understand where those 17 trillion are coming from and how that game works.

I am not sure if you are a product of wishful thinking or you people seriously believe in what you say.

Water Cannons Used Against Peaceful Anti-TTIP Protestors: the Next ACTA Revolt?

X.25 Re:Protests were Illegal. (142 comments)

The law in Belgium states that it is illegal to hold public protests without authorisation from the municipality.

I guess introducing a law that requires citizens to jump off the bridges would sort that all out.

After all, laws should not be questioned or disobeyed. Ever. Because they are there to protect you.

I have no faith in our leaders here in the US or in the EU to stop Putin.

US finances a coup in Ukraine and stirs incredible shit, and you want someone to stop Putin?

New Zealand Spy Agency To Vet Network Builds, Provider Staff

X.25 Re:Majority Rules (92 comments)

As with the United States and Australia, the people of New Zealand (and other democracies and democratic republics) elect their government and thus have control over their politics.

One must assume that in all of these places, the majority agree with these policies.

Shocking? To me, but apparently, I'm not in the majority.

It is amazing how often idiots push this same line, without realizing a pretty major and catastrphic flaw.

But carry on, though.

US Government To Study Bitcoin As Possible Terrorist Threat

X.25 Re:Your tax dollars hard at work (210 comments)

FYI, all other electronic money transfers in the US are required to go through money laundering and terrorist funding checks. By law the bank isn't even allowed to tell you why you can't get your money, if the scan hits a positive.
