  1. Only the first bug number returns anything related to SCP. The other 3 don't return anything. Am I missing something? https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2018-20685 And this one looks to be fixed: https://github.com/openssh/openssh-portable/commit/6010c0303a422a9c5fa8860c061bf7105eb7f8b2 So I'm a bit confused.

    Best way to give out passwords?

    LastPass offers a paid team/enterprise option. You should use that if you're already using LastPass. Giving out the password to a personal LastPass account is almost certainly 1) a violation of their TOS and 2) reducing the security of the LastPass vault as a whole. https://www.lastpass.com/business-password-manager

    Windows 7 enters its last year of support

    It's not just that. I've seen and heard plenty of projects and applications for linux attempt to make Linux more accessible to people scared of bash-4.2$ and every time I see people vehemently criticize those applications. They say things like "you can't use linux without using the command line," or, "just read the man page" when the man page is written by someone with a depth of technical knowledge and not a common user, or, "if you can't use the command line then fuck off back to windows," or etc etc. The list could go on for ages. Linux is absolutely ready for widespread desktop usage. It has been for years. But the current users don't want "their" OS corrupted by the heathens that used Windows and want common-user-level support.

    Windows 7 enters its last year of support

    I've been hearing this since Windows 8 and macOS Sierra. It hasn't happened yet. Too much elitism around Linux to attract a casual user base.

    Wondering if this looks good?

    Hey all, I've tasked myself with interfacing with something very legacy at work, and I'm wondering if this code looks good or if this can be done a better way. The gist: Legacy application returns a pipe-delimited '|' string with two lists: a list of database column names and a list or lists of the data in those columns. Right now I'm concentrating on tables with a single record, so this code may not work with multiple sets of data. I will fix that once I figure out how the legacy application deals with multiple rows of data. The lists run parallel with each other; retrieving data by index in the data list/s using a column index will retrieve data corresponding to that column. E.g., if I have 4 columns, then each data list will have a length of 4, and data[0] corresponds to column[0]. I wanted to make this generic because of the large & varied amount/type of information this legacy app can send back. And no, before anyone asks, modifying the legacy app to make it return something nicer than pipe-delimited strings is 100% impossible. public static T MapToObject<T>(string[] columnArray, string[] dataArray) { var newObject = Activator.CreateInstance<T>(); var properties = newObject.GetType().GetProperties(); foreach (var prop in properties) { var indexOfData = Array.IndexOf(columnArray, prop.Name.ToUpper()); prop.SetValue(newObject, dataArray[indexOfData]); } return newObject; } I'm wondering if this is the best way to do this or if I'm missing something that may make this a bit cleaner. Thanks!
  6. Hard pass on that one. HAAARD pass.

    Walmart patent to listen to every sound

    Not like intel agencies or the original creators would be able to sue; that would definitively reveal the existence of the technology. Even if snowden leaked it, they have to give the "can't confirm/can't deny" answer unless it's been officially declassified.
  8. Agreed. Much like Valve's VAC, telling people that you know of vulnerability X and criteria Y will only make people eliminate X and Y. Keeping it secret except to those who need-to-know makes security much more effective.

    Password managers

    I personally use Dashlane. There's also LastPass. Both of those are subscription based. You could use KeePass or Enpass as well, which are free (the Enpass mobile app isn't free).

    Stop Spam Calling

    I think this got covered a while back, but there's no current way to block these kinds of calls because there's no identity verification on phone numbers. Scammers will just spoof the number the call came from to a "valid" number and boom, it's now a call from somewhere else. I think the FCC is planning to implement some kind of identity verification, but until then you just have to ignore the calls.

    Chromium powered Edge is also coming to macOS and Windows 7

    I doubt it's policy; microsoft makes the policy after all. Existing compatibility I don't think would be an issue since UWP apps work on the .NET framework and .NET is backward-compatible for the most part. Same with the tools. It's more likely that EdgeHTML has special fiddling around to support UWP and .NET, and Blink doesn't. MS would have to write something like a wrapper around Blink to support UWP apps, something they haven't stated they're doing, but also haven't denied.
  12. If you have outlook available I'd use it. I tend to not have my mail going anywhere but my macbook and iphone though. I don't want to get the constant mail notifications while I'm playing a game.

    PC Upgrade Suggestions

    https://www.cpubenchmark.net/compare/Intel-i5-9600K-vs-AMD-Ryzen-5-2600X-vs-Intel-i5-8600K/3337vs3235vs3100 The only thing I'll say is that Intel is much much better with single-thread performance than AMD (as shown on the benchmark comparison there). If you're doing a lot of gaming I'd stick with Intel unless you want to upgrade to a Ryzen 7 2700X. Also, I would recommend splurging and upgrading to Windows 10 Pro so you can configure away a lot of the problems (mostly) to your heart's content through gpedit instead of the registry.

    How do I install 64-Bit Java?

    I always use the offline installers because I need both 32 and 64 bit. The online installer offers no selection (that I know of) between the two.
