No brute force block in place.
A smattering of leaked images of various celebrities in the nude hit the web over the weekend. Initial reports claim the hackers involved managed to infiltrate the iCloud accounts of several high-profile targets, perhaps using the method detailed below.
As Engadget points out, the potential exploit is centered around a project on Github called ibrute. Just one day before the images hit the web, ibrute developers said they’d found a bug in the Find My iPhone service in which the service doesn’t use brute force protection (meaning someone can continue to try different passwords until they get guess the correct one).
During a speech in Brazil this past July, Pope Francis appealed “to those in possession of greater resources,” saying that they should “never tire of working for a more just world, marked by greater solidarity. No one can remain insensitive to the inequalities that persist in the world.”
A number of people, from Republican Sen. John McCain to conservative radio commentator Rush Limbaugh, have weighed in on Francis’ statements, with the latter calling it “pure Marxism.”
What I want to know is will the robotic Dancing Baby Groot toys be out in time for Christmas?
Labor Day weekend, 2014: that time when a movie featuring an anthropomorphized raccoon and a talking tree became the highest-grossing release of the year. In its fifth weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy continued to stay in pole position thanks to weak holiday competition, taking in an estimated total of $22.2 million over the four days ($16.5 million for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) and bringing its grand domestic take up to $280.5 million. That number would have only made it the fourth highest-grossing movie at the same time in 2013 (after Iron Man 3, Despicable Me 2, and Man of Steel), but in a relatively slow year for blockbusters, it’s more than enough to grab the current brass ring from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And now that even Marvel’s long-shots are paying off big-time, we can look forward to movies featuring ever-increasingly recondite and niche comic-book characters and storylines. Oh, you thought that Howard the Duck teaser was just a joke?
NATO leaders will respond to the Ukraine crisis by agreeing this week to create a “spearhead” rapid reaction force, potentially including several thousand troops, that could be sent to a hotspot in as little as two days, officials said on Monday.
The 28-nation alliance already has a rapid reaction force but U.S. President Barack Obama and other leaders meeting for a NATO summit in Wales on Thursday and Friday are expected to create a new force that would be able to respond more quickly to a crisis.
The speed with which Russian forces infiltrated Ukraine’s Crimea region in March has focused minds at NATO on speeding up its ability to respond if a similar crisis ever occurred on NATO territory.
Asked to expound on her comment, Miss Lohan giggled, and replied “Wingnut Mormons are so $$#@#$ hawt and junk” /
But this was not the first time the fledgling political pundit has jumped into the presidential twitter fray.
In early September, after the first presidential debate, Lohan went on a Twitter rampage, during which she tweeted none other than Barack Obama asking him to consider tax breaks “for those that are listed on Forbes as ‘millionaires’ if they are not,” although it’s unclear what she exactly meant by that
I was going to put this under humor, but I was afraid people would think it was satire.
IT IS NOT!
Happy Labor Day to my fellow Lizards and their families. Here is a brief history of Labor Day from Wikipedia. encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com
What Was Fake on the Internet This Week: Date-Rape Nail Polish, ‘Two Moons’ and the Return of ‘Breaking Bad’
Ready? Here’s what was fake on the Internet this week:
1. Nail polish can’t actually prevent date-rape. The media, social and otherwise, cheered the invention of an “anti-date rape” nail polish at North Carolina State University, where students claimed their polish would change colors when exposed to common date rape drugs. Unfortunately, the “claim” is … just that. As my colleague Gail Sullivan noted in the Morning Mix, the vast majority of date rapes don’t involve the four drugs the nail polish detects. More problematic? In many a laboratory study, the chemical test used by the new polish often fails to detect the drugs in question, while turning up false positives for lots of other benign things. That makes the date rape polish a great headline, but a more or less useless tool. “We like simple fixes,” writes the drug columnist at Animal New York — but this one, alas, is “a false panacea.”
2. There are never — never! — “two moons.” Despite the repeated dissuasions of peeved astronomers, late summer marks the arrival of an annual Internet tradition: promises that Mars will soon be close enough to Earth that it’s as large and as visible as the moon. Needless to say, this makes zero scientific sense. (Just look at a scaled diagram of the solar system.) But the photos that circulate with this hoax are obvious frauds, too: In the popular image below, for instance, the “second” moon is a clear clone of the other. NASA has helpfully supplied a real photo of Mars approaching Earth — needless to say, it’s not quite so impressive.
