@Clive Robinson: XENIX! Ah, splendid memories of the past… It was the first U*X I got my hands on, right on my first year at the university. There was an N-teen seat installation (can’t remember the number exactly now, but surely below 20) on a then state-of the-art Intel 486 box (25 MHZ?) with 12 MB of RAM, multiserial card and quite nice paper-white CRT character terminals (looked like Wyse a bit but there were different brand, Falco IIRC). Those happy hacking days… I often camped there with friends till 9 p.m. when the janitor threw us out to close the department building for the night (good for me, the last bus home departed at 9.23)...

Knots?! Awesome!! But you speak of speed. I referred to distance.It was, distinctly, an utterly old school, handheld mechanical device Moxie used. Like, Antikythera Mechanism old school.

Not to be confused with logarithm! I kid, I kid.

Oh my. That’s two priceless moments in one post, SLF. I’ll be watching closely for your trifecta.

Oh I noted via the Reddit you provided SLF there is indeed a git for Signal. So I take it Moxie changed his tune on federation. Admittedly those blog posts by him on the subject were several years ago. Indeed some of them – for ex. the ones challenging Telgram and offering to help them, I couldn’t find last time I went hunting for them...

““Wuhan” I suppose you mean, although I can’t claim any better correctness of the English spelling than you can.”

The official Pinyin spelling is: Wuhan / Wŭhàn (the second with tones).

Pinyin is the official Chinese transcription of spoken Mandarin into latin alphabet. The characters are used to approximate the International Phonetic Alphabet, which does most certainly NOT use English pronunciation. The best approximation in English transcription would be “Woo-hahn”...

Yes, though it has nine steps not five, and it has been taught to most US,Detectives.

Known as the Reid System/Technique[1], it is associated with more false confessions and even tampering with evidence than most could imagine[2], and was significantly involved in a case that led to the largest payout for wrongful conviction the US had seen[3]

A Typo on my part caused by “Fat finger syndrome” on this mobile phones touch screen

However the anglicisation of non english proper nouns has always been a bit of a disaster.

I remember from five decades ago being told scathingly by a teacher –who had lived through WWII and had yet again coloured my work book in red ink– that, some American’s had decided that the use of doubled vowles was a cause of many spelling mistakes and had thus produced a dictionary without them… Except for what we now call “native American place names”...

“Like the usage of Tor the use of “secure message apps” marks you out from the herd. Whilst it may not be enough to put cross hairs on your back most prosecutors would use the fact you use it to paint you as a criminal or worse.”

I wonder if it (the abuse) may have slipped under the radar if the Skype for Business code was not crappy and actually did caching.

Also, I find it suspicious that the abuse was expanded over time. Almost like they knew it would save them money.

Software fixes are in progress. Prepare for download.

https://mars.nasa.gov/technology/helicopter/status/290/work-progresses-toward-ingenuity-s-first-flight-on-mars/

The Ingenuity team has identified a software solution for the command sequence issue identified on Sol 49 (April 9) during a planned high-speed spin-up test of the helicopter’s rotors. Over the weekend, the team considered and tested multiple potential solutions to this issue, concluding that minor modification and reinstallation of Ingenuity’s flight control software is the most robust path forward. This software update will modify the process by which the two flight controllers boot up, allowing the hardware and software to safely transition to the flight state. Modifications to the flight software are being independently reviewed and validated today and tomorrow in testbeds at JPL...

Anyways it reminds me of Nassim Nicholas Taleb, author of The Black Swan, complaining about overpriced rat-infested restaurants downtown New York City, and the risk of Plague or Black Death, whether that is actually a valid complaint about the rats, or if it’s just some author waiting on book royalties trying to get a nice restaurant meal at a better price...

I have an open mind about the lab-origin question … it’s not impossible. However, I read that the real experts are very skeptical of that hypothesis.

From what I’ve been told for good reason.

Apparently these “illegal in the US experiments” the lab carried out on behalf of the US Government are sufficiently documented and inspected that the animal species known to be in the lab have been ruled out as an intermediary host for the zoonotic transfer (which is still a missing link)...

Alex Bodryk on Backdoor Added — But Found — in PHP :

How to solve this problem – embed SAST right into Github?
If we’ve got volunteer devs why we can’t get volunteer appsec pros that would triage findings at least in fundamental open-source tech?

Mistakenly I understood the original story was about Star Trek, where the Enterprise is enumerated as NC-1701. Boy, was I wrong. This is just more evidence that there is a deliberate action plan to take the U.S. general population back to the 15th century (or earlier, as in 11th century). If you cannot tie the threads of these actions together than you are not paying attention. As a threat to domestic tranquility, I rank it number one. And, as often posts are moderated into oblivion, it is the larger picture that is the actual goal–it is but a piece of the puzzle...

The brightness of the spot from the laser beam depends on the laser power and the reflectivity of the surface. At the same power, the human eye is the most sensitive in the green region (wavelength 520-570nm) of the spectrum, which seems to be brighter than other colors. The sensitivity of red or blue wavelengths is decreased.

@Please look at this:

I don’t use science fiction as a guide.

If I got the right patent, and didn’t badly misunderstand it (they all look weird to me), it seems innocuous.

Probably most human-made stuff in the world today is manufactured from more or less viscous fluids (different kinds of goop, really) which harden under some ambient condition: cooling, drying, passage of time, mixing with a curing agent, spatial distribution, or sometimes light...

Cathy Owen on Hiring Hackers :

After years of complaining about my credit situation, I decided to take matters into my own hands. I did some research and I saw people commenting and giving testimonies about RAYLINK CYBER SERVICES who happens to be a former FICO agent, with my credit now at 792 he also cleared all the negative marks on my credit report and addition of positive trade lines to my credit report. Nothing excites me more at this point than having a new house of my own now am living happily with my family. Big thanks to RAYLINK. Contact him ...

Luis on Risks of Password Managers :

And what about that trend to store the password and the TOTP code generator on the same vault/Password Manager?

On my view, this is diluting the benefits of 2FA/MFA and therefore creating a security risk on the use of passwords managers. I believe it shouldn’t be considered a security best practice.

I wonder if anybody published any analysis about it.

Ivanka Joseph on Workshop on the Economics of Information Security :

The world of economics is very secure in this era owing to digitalization. Nobody can feel insecure in the business world because there are a lot of options for stakeholders to run their business successfully. Now I would like to read full review about the writing service before hiring it to assist me in my paper that I am writing about a business like this.

“And what in hell are Germany and Israel doing on the same side of the war? And why do “we” in the U.S. want to get dragged into that bloody circumcised mess between the Middle East and Europe?”

Because none of these want Iran to have nuclear missiles. They all consider another mad leader with nukes a very bad idea. I can understand followers of Trump et al. think such missiles could never threaten US Republicans, but those who actually research such questions think otherwise...

@ Ismar,

Unfortunately, you seem, as most of the time, correct in predicting a gloomy outlook for COVID 19 unfolding

Do you know how much I wish to be wrong?

I suspect others feel the same way, as we watch opportunities to halt COVID-19 slip by time and time again whilst politicians squable…

However all I do is build my models simple as they are and look at the trends… And when I should sleep fail to, as I see the curves like neon lighting in my dreams...

There is and has been for atleast half a century prior to the development of the original cellular radios. I’ve repeatedly explained the process required with the simple to understand use of a secure paper and pencil cipher[1][2]

I follow Bruce’s community guidelines – so I will keep this to a discussion of tech. At this point Iran can only blame themselves for their constant Cybersecurity failures. In the US does a Regulator (I,e.: SEC, FTC) fine an attacker or a victim for a cyber attack? The answer is the victim pays the fine because they have a legal obligation to be smarter than their attacker.

When you are up against people with tech like this, the smart thing is to give up...
