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.

Printer companies do not like hearing this, but most of the printer users playing with various brands of clone inks for 20 years and they never experienced any of the problems that you commonly read about in forums, like clogged heads or ruined warranties. “Only use the brand name meant for the printer!”

Exploring the new territory By Manfred Karrer

bitsquare-home2

With the recent Bitfinex heist models for decentralized exchanges have received a bit more attention as usual.

This is a repeating pattern happening every few months after a major incident.

And it goes back to business as usual after people are entertained by the next soap opera.

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”

Rogue waves Prediction?

Rogue WavesIt’s bad enough to be on the sea during a storm, with the ship rocking in the high winds and rolling with the tempest-tossed waves. But it could always be worse.

Rogue waves are unpredictable, coming seemingly out of nowhere. Until now, the only warnings that a Continue reading “Rogue waves Prediction?”
