Source Code for IoT Botnet ‘Mirai’ Released — Krebs on Security

The source code that powers the “Internet of Things” (IoT) botnet responsible for launching the historically large distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack against KrebsOnSecurity last month has been publicly released, virtually guaranteeing that the Internet will soon be flooded with attacks from many new botnets powered by insecure routers, IP cameras, digital video recorders and other easily hackable devices.

The leak of the source code was announced Friday on the English-language hacking community Hackforums. The malware, dubbed “Mirai,” spreads to vulnerable devices by continuously scanning the Internet for IoT systems protected by factory default or hard-coded usernames and passwords.

Here are a few more resources that I used when I signed up on Taiwan.
Oh, and new char is a gunner..(below)

The last 2 are one of the ways to get English translation. I ended up going this route.

It’s hard to know exactly, with 700000 tabs open.
Anyway, sort of lost track of where I was going with this. Oh, I joined

Because it looked like there were some english speaking guilds on there. I noticed that here: http://emperial.sg/blade-soul-taiwan-guild-recruitment-emperial/

The last link is a guild site forums called Emperial with a couple other guilds on it as well.

Thanks to all the people who actually did the hard work of writing these tutorials that I’ve blatantly plagiarized…;)

The Web is Dead! Long live the Internet.

Two decades after its birth, the World Wide Web is in decline, as simpler, sleeker services — think apps — are less about the searching and more about the getting. Chris Anderson explains how this new paradigm reflects the inevitable course of capitalism. And Michael Wolff explains why the new breed of media titan is forsaking the Web for more promising (and profitable) pastures.

PC maintenance day

Well, since Office died on me the other day.. I’m getting used to OpenOffice, a free replacement for office, available at http://openoffice.org . Since Outlook is also a part of office, I am trying out Thunderbird as well.. If only the linux box was up… Anyway, the A/V scan for 2 drives has been going for about 6 hours and is still on the startup drive. Storage scares me a bit; I have a 1.5T drive around somewhere that I planned on tossing in this machine but with 5 drives already I’m thinking it a bad idea. The box that will eventually be the file server is an older dual p3 with fast drives and an approx. weight of about 80 pounds.. It is still in storage. Anyway, that is what the comp is doing today..

The Moving Blues and mystery pill marathon

Well.. after 3-4 days of backbreaking slaving and lots of help from my folks and Matt.. Where were all my treacherous friends? Good question.. Anyway, the place I was set to move into isn’t ready and may not be or … it was difficult to determine if the owner of the apt even wanted to rent it… WTF? Maybe she has something against white folks.. or crusty bald guys maybe.. Anyway, as is most is on hold, all the servers are in storage. I should have automatedhome.ca back up in a few days though or maybe tomorrow.. This isn’t much of a rant but I sure as fuck was pissed off earlier… Good thing I was eating all the pills I came across on the floors.. hehe.. most were diazepam (probably saved some lives) and a couple 15mg XR morphs.. Well, that’s it for now.. I’m staying with Corky for a while whilst I search out the perfect abode in ol’ Hamilton.. meh.. nites

Wonkette : KFC Covertly Jacking Up National Health Care Costs With Terrifying New Monstrosity

Holy Shit!

KFC Covertly Jacking Up National Health Care Costs With Terrifying New Monstrosity

You won’t find a word about it on the KFC website, or in most regional advertisements, but out in the mysterious moon colony of Omaha, the televisions are advertising a new sandwich. This is the only footage known to man. Believe it: KFC is selling a sandwich in Omaha, and god knows where else, that serves as a bellwether for the current state and future hopes of America: Two patties of fried chicken as the “bread,” between which are various forms of cheese, two strips of bacon, and “Colonel’s Sauce” — likely a combination of butter, salt, and cum.

This is utterly transfixing, especially with the corporate secrecy. Fast-food companies are apparently selling INSANE specialties, under-the-counter, in specific “fat” regions of the country! Anyone from Alabama or Mississippi or wherever? Does your McDonald’s sell you like a NINE-patty deep-fried cheeseburger?
