fufufang That's Russian citizen's loss. (206 comments)

Does this affect the rest of the world? Nope.

Let's move on, nothing to see here.

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.

After Knocked-Down Damages Claim, Apple Again Seeks to Ban Some Samsung Phones

fufufang Re:Apple is no longer competitive... (114 comments)

From Wikipedia:
"The IBM Simon Personal Communicator, ca. 1993, the first touchscreen phone."

Touchscreen phone running Windows Mobile was quite common in Asian market before iPhone. It is true that they weren't as polished.

fufufang Re:Apple is no longer competitive... (114 comments)

I was trying to say that these days Apple probably has more lawyers than engineers... I can't delete/edit my comment...

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.

Anonymous Clashes With D.C. Police During Million Mask March

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.

UK Regulator Did Not Check Google Privacy Claims

fufufang Privacy in UK?! Is this some kind of joke? (56 comments)

UK is a leading country for CCTV camera ownership. GCHQ had been spying on citizens using data from NSA's PRISM program. I really wonder why they even bother with creating ICO. It is just bureaucracy.

Iris Scans Are the New School IDs

fufufang Random university does random program (217 comments)

I have to say this is the first time I heard about this Winthrop University. Random small universities always seem to have more money than those more prestigious ones. Well at least they seem to have more money on this kind of random programs.

MIT Project Reveals What PRISM Knows About You

fufufang Re:Just askin... (221 comments)

Au contraire. Secret court rulings have confirmed that the US is abiding by the constitution. Please do not attempt to disprove this, as slashdot is not cleared to receive classified information.

Trust the Computer. The Computer is Your Friend.

As a person who lives in Britain. Sometimes I feel not enough attention is given to the international side of the issue. I can now certainly understand why some countries hate the US so much.

The US has violated many other allies' trust, no matter whether the constitution is violated. I have the feeling that the US government is currently run by a bunch of insensitive clods.

US Spies Have "Security Agreements" With Foreign Telecoms

fufufang Re:Actually Protest This Shit (181 comments)

As just one thing, vow that you will not vote for any candidate who does not support a full and complete pardon for Snowden. Even if you think your candidate is a "lesser evil" -- all that has gotten us is whole bunch of evil. Make the politicians fear for their jobs.

And you shouldn't be afraid of voting a third-party candidate. Candidates in the Republican/Democrat parties do respond to those third-parties, if the race between the is close, as they want to get as many votes as they can.

RSA Key Extraction via Low-Bandwidth Acoustic Cryptanalysis

fufufang fufufang writes  |  about 9 months ago

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."
