JP Morgan Chase Breach: Shades of a Cyber Cold War?

crunchy_one Re:FUD. They don't even know. (96 comments)

Spot on comment. TFA also fails to name the 10 financial firms that were allegedly attacked. The New York Times seems to be rapidly morphing into a US version of Russia Today. If there's any new cold war, it's clearly a propaganda war. And guess what? I don't give a flying fuck.

IE Vulnerability Exposing Banking Logins, Spreading Rapidly

crunchy_one Re:Is IE Really to Blame? (93 comments)

Any compromised website can take over the browser. So a malware ad hosted on Youtube or ./ can infect the browser, and the attacker can then snoop on future activity – e.g. on banking sites.

And this is exactly why I always run an ad blocker.

Given the current mess that is web advertising, it would be foolish to do otherwise.

Rome Police Use Twitter To Battle Illegal Parking

crunchy_one I'm Wondering (157 comments)

Did this program improve the parking situation in Rome? Doubt it. I'll go out on a limb and guess that it has yielding a tiny bit of revenue that disappears into the noise of what they already collect. But this is Rome, so why not a bit of tech circus for the masses?
