  1. I really don't understand how companies can think this fuckery is okay... Seriously, what kind of blinded, nonsensical self-indulging anti-consumer bullshit is this?
  2. In the video where they discussed this, they were talking about how someone could incorporate this vulerabuility directly into some malware. Basically take and nuke. There are a lot of places, companies and even people who haven't updated firmware for some of this, so it is possible for people be affected. The fact this bug requires admin access means any number of viruses or anything that finds and escalation could have this implanted in the payload.
  3. Yeah not helping there chief. My brain already broke with your previous comment. This just caused a meltdown into a puddle of goo. Numbers hurt brain.
  4. Well, this was unexpected. An unexpected problem related to plundervolt vulnerability, but you require admin privileges, however that is not a silver bullet. This isn't the worst thing ever, but still bad. Apparently it is already patched. So that is good. However, some manufactures have removed the the patch... So, that is a bit odd... Also, keep in mind this would require a firmware patch. A lot of devices may not have it. If someone wants to be a real butt, they can really break a bunch of systems. The destructive potential of this bug is impressive. The below video does go more in detail in first part. Source
  5. Wait wait wait. What? Huh? Now this is pretty cool. The ability to use acceremeters in phones to detect earthquakes? I had no idea they were that sensitive. You could use this to create an early detection system! Especially if you are in an affected area or not sure if you are in an affected area. The other part is how it is being rolled to anything running android 5.0 and up! So many devices. So much data! If someone was a seismologist, I am sure they would be excited to have access to this info. Plus, it looks like this is in near real time, so 10s of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of devices detecting things could be interesting. Then again, this is just me rambling. Either way, some cool stuff! Sauce Source
  6. https://www.newegg.com/gold-wd181kryz-18tb/p/N82E16822234420?Item=N82E16822234420&quicklink=true Chief, I am not sure where you are looking, but they exist... https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?N=100167523 8000 4841 600457686 50001306 Most consumer drives cap out at 4TB, but larger drives exist but int the form of NAS drives. 99% of consumers do not need more than 2TB. Let alone 1TB. Also, large capacity with higher RPM is harder to do. Aerial density, read and write head sensitivity, response, accuracy, ride heights, the ability for said heads to pickup said data, etc all come into play. Thus, most drives that are 8+ TB are generally going to be slower spinning speeds. Doesn't mean they won't be slow. The 8TB 5400RPM drives we have at work do about 180MB/s
  7. Freaking everything in australia will try to kill you. Your spiders are so big they have freaking health bars! Original photo so you guys know
  8. Um... What? Why now? How long as Intel been using FinFET and now there is a lawsuit over it? Honetsly, this just smells fishy to me. Tin-foil at side of me says this is a ploy to extort money or possible IP out of the company. Then again, I don't really know enough to properly comment. Source
