Evernote Security Compromised

ohzero Shocking... (104 comments)

One more trendy company that didn't have a security program gets compromised. It's almost as if ignoring the problem doesn't make it go away. Pentest, code review, remediate, and test some more. Or, you know, lose brand value...that's the other option.

Is Stanford Too Close To Silicon Valley?

ohzero absurd notion (171 comments)

Suggesting that because the university has fostered a large number of financially successful commercial ventures, that it could be toxic to the education of innovators is completely lame. In fact, it is so lame that I wonder if the topic was entirely made up for lack of content. Technological innovation can do 3 things that matter: 1. Advance society, making us all better in some way. 2. Foster financial stability for large numbers of people. 3. Raise questions about either number one or number two. Without financially successful technological innovation, we'd be Cuba in the 50's. Really happy, not that prosperous, and ready for a big change that would fuck us all.

all these assholes could just stop storing everything in cleartext, and the problem would just go away without needing to involve bureaucrats.

Is the Gaming Industry Moving Online Too Fast?

ohzero Sony is an anomaly (185 comments)

This breach is due to the transition from the capable staff at SOE to the new security retards at SNEI. In fact, Shannon Lietz and her entire group should be fired. It has nothing to do with the industries inability to adapt. If that were true, then massive platforms at companies like and google would fail regularly, but they don't. The server architectures and application deployments are practically the same. Bottom line - Sony is an exception, and they are an exceptional fuck up.

IT Graduates Not "Well-Trained, Ready-To-Go"

ohzero since when... (609 comments)

has college graduation been the equivalent of "training" ? I don't know a single doctor who, even after acquiring their MD would suggest that they are "trained" in a given specialty.

Sony Wins Restraining Order Against Geohot

ohzero just the 3? (397 comments)

Seems kinda short sighted to only limit him to talking about PS3 when Sony is so far down the road on the development of a new platform (ie 4)

Conroy Still Hell-Bent On Internet Filter

ohzero It won't go through. Stop worrying. (254 comments)

This will never happen, if only for the reason that the Australians are afraid that we'll start comparing them to the Chinese.

CIA, FBI Push Social Networking for Spies

ohzero Re:Hacker Target (138 comments)

Funny... our government and military installations have arguably the longest history of being extremely bad at information security. We also have the nasty habit of leaking information. Screenshots to follow within 12 months guaranteed.

how much for original first edition software?

ohzero ohzero writes  |  more than 6 years ago

ohzero writes "Suppose that someone had the first pre-release copy of Napster that could be forensically proven to be such, it was never released to anyone else... and that person could prove that it came straight from Shawn Fanning..Do you suppose that's a collectable piece of technology? Also, do you supppose Roxio would support or sue someone who chose to sell it. We are coming up on the 10th aniversary of the file creation date...."
