How Facebook Responded To Tunisian Hacks

volcan0 Re:Duh (227 comments)

Your argument was actually quite valide. The only thing I would add to it, is signing the page. Let me explain:

1. Do all the above steps
2. Hash ( and store ) the output buffer ( PHP ) before flushing it to the browser
3. When preparing the POST to send the auth to the server, have the JS include the hash of the current page

If they do not match: you know code was injected in the page.

How Hulu, NBC, and Other Sites Block Google TV

volcan0 Re:The differences are marketing and app repositor (338 comments)

What I really don't get is why would you allow desktop streaming but not an appliance if the idea is to protect your your IP and keep your traditional business model ( ad revenu ). It's much easier to rip a feed from a desktop / laptop / HTPC / whatever than from a locked appliance !

volcan0 Re:No need to fuss (324 comments)

Ever heard of layered security ? That's like saying you don't need to backup because you have a raid and you know how to manage it.

Canada Says Google Wi-Fi Sniffing Collected Personal Data

volcan0 Re:Article comment puts it best (136 comments)

What happens if you are a registered google user ? Don't you already allow them specifically to retain data on you as a user ? Retaining data from your WAP is just an extension of this right if you really what to take it literally regarding Canadian law.

NRO Warns They Are On Final IPv4 Address Blocks

volcan0 Re:Again?... (282 comments)

Is there really that many new companies / ISP requiring /8's ? The only reasons so many of them are being allocated is because the people with the money see an opportunity to make more money. Have we been really allocating 1.5 /8 per month for the past 4-5 years ? We would have run out LONG time ago. No, they see a shortage, everybody runs for it.

volcan0 Re:2012, the year of IPv6 support? (282 comments)

I though that to be able to retain your address space you need to prove to you are actually using it. At least as far as ARIN is concerned.
