NSA Allegedly Exploited Heartbleed

davidhoude Re:NSA put the bug there, of course they exploited (149 comments)

The bug seems quite obvious. I would expect they could be a little more clever if they were to write the bug itself. This is failure of the OpenSSL project, period.

Operation Wants To Mine 10% of All New Bitcoins

davidhoude Re:Go DogeCoin! (275 comments)

I was able to make $2,000 off dogecoin in the first 24 hours, it was amazing. Talk about the right place at the right time, I don't even own a decent video card.

Security for the 'Internet of Things' (Video)

davidhoude Re:don't connect it (106 comments)

I agree mostly, but just wanted to note that having a unique publicly routable IP address does necessarily mean the device is open to the internet.

Security for the 'Internet of Things' (Video)

davidhoude Re: Here's how to secure your "Internet of things" (106 comments)

People here can't see the implications beyond tweeting toasters, don't mind them. The future is a scary place for those people involved in technology of the past.

New Information May Narrow Down Malaysian Jet's Path

davidhoude Re:It's not terrorists (227 comments)

I love how you can dismiss a theory based on your preconceived notions of how terrorists must act. I am sure that they have a playbook and would never consider deviating from what it says.

New Information May Narrow Down Malaysian Jet's Path

davidhoude Re: This is the 'Distracting Story of the Week' (227 comments)

You should be a detective!

"Ma'am, I am sorry but we have no reason to believe your child was kidnapped from the park. You see, we conducted a thorough investigation and did not find any hotel rooms booked under your missing daughters name."

WPA2 Wireless Security Crackable WIth "Relative Ease"

davidhoude Re:why crack my Wi-Fi (150 comments)

Because SSL on Open WiFi is fool proof....

He was correct. While you are also correct, you failed to see the attack vector. If the network is not secure, your SSL may not be effective, at least not for all users.

School Tricks Pupils Into Installing a Root CA

davidhoude Re:IANAL - but read this: (417 comments)

This is widely practiced in the US, I don't see where you are going with this. It is their network, they can do as they please. You installed the software, it's not like they hacked you and installed their CA.

School Tricks Pupils Into Installing a Root CA

davidhoude Re:yeah. (417 comments)

I have no way of knowing, but I can imagine they disclosed it in the agreement that no one ever reads.

School Tricks Pupils Into Installing a Root CA

davidhoude Re:Probably not Illegal. (417 comments)

I think it depends on where you are from. Here in the US this is widely practiced by all sorts of places like work, school, etc.

Installing the CA's is sketchy, but the users probably didn't read the fine print. Intercepting the traffic is business as usual.

davidhoude Re:Probably not Illegal. (417 comments)

Do you know what a CA is? Once they leave the network, the school isn't able to decrypt SSL traffic.

The Emerging RadioShack/Netflix Debacle

davidhoude Re:why not tie to phone numbers that RS asks for (122 comments)

Not you per se. I just mean that if a customer is being that much of an asshole that the employee is going to walk out on his job, he should punch the person in the face because it would make the situation better.

NCommander (Michael Casadevall) - A straight white nerd who hates niggers, jews and fags.

I am sure the people at Canonical are going to be happy to hear that one of their employees is running a news aggregation site aimed with such a strong moral compass.

Should Newsweek Have Outed Satoshi Nakamoto's Personal Details?

davidhoude Re:Bullshit reporting (276 comments)

Your argument would be more believable if this guy claimed to be the real deal, and the known legit twitter account outed him as a liar. For him to deny it, and his twitter account to also deny it doesn't prove anything.

Ask Slashdot: Does Your Employer Perform HTTPS MITM Attacks On Employees?

davidhoude Re:Not MITM (572 comments)

A client does not need to be compromised for a MITM attack to work, I have no idea where you would get such an idea. MITM attacks are network based, and have absolutely nothing to do with the client being compromised.
