North Korea Denies Involvement In "Righteous" Sony Hack

fufufang Re: Poor Sony... (85 comments)

I think that particular (group) of employee is probably Korean. Based on the current flippant attitude of North Korea, it is the easiest to blame everything on North Korea, which is perceived as evil.

North Korea Denies Involvement In "Righteous" Sony Hack

fufufang Poor Sony... (85 comments)

Using North Korea as a scapegoat was a perfect strategy for Sony. Blaming the attack on a nation state is way better than admitting its poor security practices. But North Korea has now denied the involvement, I wonder what they are going to do...

Finland Dumps Handwriting In Favor of Typing

fufufang I have never learnt cursive (523 comments)

I moved to United Kingdom when I was 13. I was never taught cursive in school. I am doing fine. However I don't think it is a good idea to teach texting, because different kind of input method may come along and make texting obsolete, e.g. Swype.

Turing Test Passed

fufufang How useful is this bot? (432 comments)

The program pretends that it is a "13-year-old boy". How often do you take advice from 13-year-old-boys? I assume that Slashdot is not rampant with teenagers.

US Marshals Seize Police Stingray Records To Keep Them From the ACLU

fufufang Re:Ha! (272 comments)

I think the difference between Bush and Obama is that Bush wasn't hypocritical. Bush didn't tell everyone that he was going to make his government more open, whereas Obama did.

P.S. I would upvote you if I had mod points.

NASA Money Crunch Means Trouble For Spitzer Space Telescope

fufufang Re:I am not from the US (107 comments)

If you are from the US, please tell your senators to STOP BICKERING and get US back into space. Quite a lot of people outside the US feel this is not just about the US, it is about the humanity.

NASA Money Crunch Means Trouble For Spitzer Space Telescope

fufufang I am not from the US (107 comments)

I find it extremely sad that the US has recently lost the ability to conduct human spaceflight. I also find it extremely sad that the funding for NASA is still under threat. I don't know what to say really... I hope the future exploration of mankind doesn't depend on countries with questionable human right record like Russia and China.

fufufang This protest is sponsored by... (388 comments)

...Time Warner Inc.'s Guy Fawkes masks.

Also Guy Fawkes failed to blow up the Parliament in real life, so this mask is a mask of fail.

RSA Key Extraction via Low-Bandwidth Acoustic Cryptanalysis

fufufang fufufang writes  |  1 year,2 days

fufufang (2603203) writes ""The attack can extract full 4096-bit RSA decryption keys from laptop computers (of various models), within an hour, using the sound generated by the computer during the decryption of some chosen ciphertexts. We experimentally demonstrate that such attacks can be carried out, using either a plain mobile phone placed next to the computer, or a more sensitive microphone placed 4 meters away."

Shamir of the RSA fame is in this, we are totally doomed."
