Why you need to stop using the same Passwords

In December of 2016, Yahoo announced it had uncovered a massive data hack, compromising more than 1 billion user accounts. This was in addition to an earlier 2014 data breach, which had affected over 500 million users. While users may scream for blood when such a breach happens – usually blaming the owners of the affected websites – the real culprit can likely be found in their own bathroom mirrors.

You see, many data breaches are caused by one seemingly innocent common factor: computer and mobile device users reuse their passwords on multiple websites at an alarmingly high rate.

Jeff Parker, Cagle Cartoons, Florida Today and the Fort Myers News-Press

Collecting metadata “can be more intrusive than traditional communications data,” Scotland Yard’s deputy assistant commissioner has admitted to Ars.

Neil Basu made his comment during a briefing session on law enforcement requirements for investigatory powers. The UK government claims that the new Internet connection records (ICRs) at the heart of the Investigatory Powers Bill are “only” metadata, and therefore no more intrusive than traditional communications data.

However, this contradicts the view of many experts who believe Continue reading “Analyzing metadata in UK”

Pornhub just gave official start of the 3d Porn Industry Virtual Reality

Pornhub Just Launched a Free VR Channel and It Is WildHave you ever wanted to try porn in virtual reality? Secretly, we all have, and Pornhub just made it insanely easy. The world’s biggest adult site partnered with established VR porn store BaDoink to offer free 360-degree content. It is obviously NFSW.

If you’ve never tried VR porn, let me tell you: It is a weird, wild ride. I tested out the new site using both iOS and Android setups and a couple different headsets. The video I saw was not exactly virtual reality as the footage wasn’t entirely 3D. Pornhub does say that the new channel will have lots of full 360-degree content, so you really feel like you’re in some San Bernardino McMansion having sex with a stranger.

Feel might be the wrong word. It certainly looks like you’re there, though the resolution on the demo video that I saw was blurry at best. At worst, Continue reading “Pornhub just gave official start of the 3d Porn Industry Virtual Reality”
