    Not only technology literacy, but a willingness to use it readily and engage the wider public in policy-making as well.

    Honestly. It's far more important now than it was, say, 30 years ago, when a lot of these officials were elected.

    And yet you know that these same idiots still think encryption should be banned.
     
    I think we really need to start requiring more in the way of qualifications in regards to technology literacy, for elected and appointed officials. This is intended as a non-political, and entirely practical statement.

    Even a best security system is defeated with enough stupidity of its users. You can make much simpler and safe system for users that are knowledgeable, but if you have bunch of illiterate normies who will use even the best system, they will still spill the beans somewhere. 
    1. Keycards, encrypted pendrives -if user lose it because he/she is forgetful 
    2. Two factor authentication -same for forgetful users
    3. Phishing, gaining personal information to reset the passwords, get clues -if users are naive, uninformed, stupid
    4. Server storage methods that depends on it specialist input and mainteneace -negligence and laziness
    5. Truly automated systems that can be circumvented by only inside knowledge -blackmail
    6. Multiple layers, automated security systems -hardware spy chip hoisted that will nullify any encryption taking place
     
    Therefore a good system has multiple layers of security. The fact that they don't used such system means they are either stupid, or truth be told -the meeting didn't have REALLY important information after all

    Also it's just 6 digits that is easy to crack. That and the dude could guess it so there is basically no timout on tries then.

    Summary
     Daniel Verlaan, who works for RTL, noticed that, in a now deleted tweet by Dutch Defence Minister Ank Bijleveld,  of a picture of a private conference hosted online between EU defence ministers, the meeting id and 5 out of the 6 digits of the pin were in the picture. 
     
    Having guessed the last digit, He then joined and said hello.

    My thoughts
    I'm surprised this hasn't happened sooner. So many systems work on outdated legacy software such as windows XP in ATMs, I'm not really surprised this happened. Sure, this conference software is quite new, but the execution of software (no 2fa) is still very old school, especially for a conference of such importance. 
     
    i believe this really is a wake up call for companies and governments during this pandemic to make sure that their accounts and therefore meetings are secure.

    Results45 reacted to Brooksie359 in Noveto: Are beam-forming speakers about to make headphones obsolete?   
    The only benefit I see coming from this is reducing sound volume for the outside when watching TV which would be nice if you aren't trying to wake other people up in your house. If it can allow lower volume output sound louder to the person it is targeting then this could be pretty cool in those types of scenarios. Granted headphones could be used in that way but tbh I am not a huge fan of headphones when watching TV.

    To make it only be heard by you, no, not even possible. Making it adapt to sound better to person near, yeah, that is possible. If it does some sort of radar tracking and adapting how sound outputs depending on that, then yes, it's possible.

    A long time ago when I was younger my mother said to me one time "Your brother wants TV in his room but he can't get any reception. He spends a lot of time in there alone and you should help him with it". So I go to his room and ask him if he wants TV in there and would he like me to do it for him. He says "yeah that would be nice but don't go to any trouble". I like my brother and am glad to help. I say it's no trouble.
     
    My brother was a kind of laid back dude who often would lie in bed chain smoking and eating. A little on the messy side. He liked to work on cars and in general didn't get to nervous about things. If you know what I mean. He always had one of those oil filled electric radiator type heaters in his room turned all the way up 24/7. He liked it hot all the time.
     
    The house was old and it was actually a little bit of trouble for me running the coax cable across the whole house. I hid it up in the ceilings in different rooms and hallways across the whole house to get it to his bedroom. Drilling some holes and finding the best paths for the cable. It takes me all afternoon to finish. The next morning I set it all up for him, the TV, TV box and surge protector. The surge protector is very necessary where I live especially back in those days. So when I'm done I show him how the TV box remote works and tell him not to plug his heater into the surge protector. That it will fry it if he does because it is not made for that. He says ok and thanks me.
     
    Like two days later my mother says to me something is wrong and that he is complaining that his TV won't work.
    So I go into his room to check it out.
    The surge protector is melted and the TV won't turn on.
    The heater power cord is unplugged laying beside it. 🥴
     
    I like my brother he was funny sometimes.
    😄
