  1. A Texas woman blamed for the 2004 crash that killed her fiancé has learned that a recently discovered General Motors defect was the cause of the crash. Source
  2. Happens here all the time...
  3. I stopped mining for over a year ago. The electrical bill is higher than the bitcoins I earn.
  4. The source of the mysterious 11 second Webdriver Torso videos on YouTube has been revealed to be... Google, which uses the account to check quality of uploads. As reported on Engadget: Here is Google's official statement on the matter. http://observationdeck.io9.com/the-webdriver-torso-mystery-solved-1588791339
  5. Χρόνια Πολλά!
  6. Another of Google's idea (alongside the one with balloons) that has remained to be seen.
  7. As it says delayed until 2015. Well .... at least the controller is cool.
  8. Cryptolocker is a tricky one. They had a ball with that and its estimated that they earned about 40 million $ with it. I had my watch on it from October last year. It encrypts popular files with extension like doc(x), pdf, xls(x), mp3, ..etc and then sends then the private key to compromised server and it is stored for about 72 hours (so they said). Without the private key its nearly impossible to break the mixture of RSA & AES encryption that it uses. The "cherry on the top" is it searches for network drives also and encrypt them as well. A new variant also deletes the shadow copies your last hope for not to pay them. So if you made full image backup with Acronis the "tib" extension is not on the list for encrypting. But if you do a simple file backup and have the backup disk or NAS connected all the time it will encrypted too. Cloud backup is a big plus too. I don't think that cryptolocker is 100% dead. They will be always copycats and better coders than this one. The profit on this is just to great to be ignored.
  9. TrueCrypt, the popular open-source encryption program, on Wednesday unexpectedly recommended that users drop its product and shift to Microsoft's Bitlocker. Source
