This is abit important.. A certain Important software program for use on your computer, by a MAJOR CORP.. Has had TONS of updates in the last couple years.. Whats interesting is that NOT being part of Apple, they are also one of the major software companies WRITING for them..
RECENTLY they announced that that the DRM that they wrote for a piece of portable hardware was going AWAY, and that ALL those that used it, must redo the DRM to a current version, or THEIRS.
Simple DRM, checks a disk, as its inserted into your computer then plays it.. WHAT else could you do with Software AND DRM?? Go out and get cover art? Get lyrics? TELL SOMEONE that you have THAT PROGRAM?? REPORT the name of all your music to someone? REPORT any music/video that DONT have DRM?? (this was noted on a smart TV, recently for LG..and someone got upset)
If you arnt upset yet...ASK ADOBE..what they are doing.
Long ago, companies were HELD responsible for their products..things changed.. Being able to SUE individuals and/in Companies CHANGED..
IT IS NOW law that companies are only there to MAKE money..any way they can. There used to be many regulations. checks and balances..
Our gov used to have Checks and balances and controls and regulations, and DID there job.. Then complaints about TO MUCh gov. came around, and they CUT the gov, and gave the money to ???.. our services went to POT..and so did the roads and bridges..And the USDA can only inspect 8% of facilities per year..(and you wonder where food poisoning outbreaks come from)
WE are stupid enough to pay for Sat TV, when many countries its FREE, because its CHEAPER then installing 10,000 antenna to cover the area..
Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.
Dear Jack.. Giving wireless access or internet Access to ROOT, BASe commands is a REAL sec. threat. Giving Full control for any remote access should be forbidden.. How stupid do these people seem.
Any commercial business wishes to see Every transaction and Action done in the store. its the only way to protect themselves, and see WHO DID WHAT..and WHOM to blame. If they did, even BASIC, security and tricks, the ONLY way to have full access to this file, is to KNOW the name of it and have the password to open it. thats why information is important..HOW did they get the files. IF they had basic sec. then it had to be someone with access.
ALSO, there are many ways to hide files. 1 uses control characters in the name, which will list the DIR, but the name is blank. it erases itself, and unless you have a HEX dump of the DIR you will NEVER see the name. The OLD ways still work..HOw do you think we hacked int he OLD days..HEX editors RULE..
iT KINDA DOES.. If you leave your door open, and a thief walks ina nd steals things..IS HE, breaking and entering? He may have entered, but you left it open..IS it hacking if they DONT protect themselves??
AS WELL AS THE WORD hacking isnt used properly..DID they hack anything? If it was an ADMIN, it wasnt a HACK.
For a few reasons, target does not say HOW(wireless, networked, Internet,???) that there system was taken advantage of.. THIS is important, and could tell us if Target was an IDIOT..
If they had a Fairly protected system, it would mean this is an INSIDE job. IF they were like home depot(wireless system)(STUPID) then they needed better protection then they HAD. If they allowed DIRECt access from an internet connection, then they are even more stupid.
Encryption is OK, but giving anyone direct access to the file ITSELF? means only a few people should have access.
for those that dont get it..LEts say you REALLY want to protect a file. 1) you can make it NOT listed in the files(invisible) 2) you have to know the NAME of the file.. as you cant see it. 3)password the file, NOT TO HARD and it can be built into the EDITING program that WORKS with the file. 4.)separate files..name file, Data files can be 2-3-4-5 parts, and you get 1, you dont get the others.
you are almost right.. make it 40 year and you should be about right..
The problem here is: WHAT IS DIGITAL? DIGITAL WHAT? Watches?? been there done that..TO DEATH.. To many people are using a SUDO -dictionary..and making their OWN meanings, and NOT konwing what they are even SAYING.. WHAT WILL THIS PERSON DO??
1. MOST utilities are very easy to disturb. If you understand how they are setup and distributed, its very easy to take sections DOWN. 2. What a propaganda experiment..(real or NOT) 3. Long ago, many services were looking at placing MOST of the service under ground.. YOU STILL need access.. and if you dont LOCK IT DOWN, it can be accessed.
Considering how the system is built..THESE persons, did some damage, and it DIDNT AFFECT ANYONE?? I am TOTALLY amazed.
That monitoring the NET is a HASSLE and impossible. the only thing that can be monitored, are the MAJOR Used programs for Chat, and MAYBE some of the CHAT in games/other programs. There are so many ways to send data, back and forth, that TRYINg to monitor the net, is like TRYING to take COPIES of it EVERY DAY, the WHOLE NET. Not just the USA. And the ONLY way to do this is to get to the hardware makers in OTHER COUNTRIES, to install back doors into the hardware.. And that STILL could not in ANY way copy/monitor the WHOLE of the net..not even all the data in the USA. they would need enough Servers to MATCH what is already being USED by all the server farms. ANd the POWER to analyze ALL that DATA, in real time.. which would take about 25% of the people int he USA to go thru..
IF' you had a choice, WHO would you monitor/watch in the USA? Look up the history of WHO was helping Germany in WWII. its an interesting list.
I would use these resources to monitor the corps and WHERE THE MONEY IS GOING..
1. I want to find the person with the copy right on Cookies and milk..
2. For the NSA.. I find it humorous, looking back at WWII, that the MAJOR contributors, WORKING WITH GERMANY, were major corps in the USA.. I wonder if the FBI and NSA monitor the corps as well as they DO the people here.
