"Password cracking experts have reversed a secret cryptographic formula recently added to Cisco devices. Ironically, the encryption type 4 algorithm leaves users considerably more susceptible to password cracking than an older alternative, even though the new routine was intended to enhance protections already in place.

OMG! With this news, this interweb thing just became a binary killing field...what digital service can possibly survive?

"A previously unknown hacker has undertaken a census of the web. To perform his 'Internet Census 2012' he infected around 420,000 poorly protected embedded devices with what he describes as a harmless bot, named Carna. 'Poorly protected' in this case means that either no login credentials were required or standard credentials such as 'root:root' or 'admin:admin' were able to gain entry. "

You data guys understand this need or want of a never ending collection of bytes...it scares the hell out of me though when services like Google and Facebook for example do it, and is very concerning and threatening when the state does it! It's obvious they're just trying to gather any and all bits they can to deposit at the NSA's new data storage center in Utah...and start "connecting dots"! I found the article and quote below very telling...Does it say anything to you?

"'The value of any piece of information is only known when you can connect it with something else that arrives at a future point in time,' Hunt said. 'Since you can't connect dots you don't have, it drives us into a mode of, we fundamentally try to collect everything and hang onto it forever.' "

Love is not a noun, it's a verb - it's not a condition you find yourself in; rather it's the way in which you think, behave, and act.

"First it was millions of servings of long-term storable food. Then it was billions of rounds of high-powered ammunition and thousands of tank-like armored vehicles. Now the occupying powers of the U.S. federal government are stockpiling millions of doses of smallpox medication in alleged preparation for a potential 'bioterrorism attack,' according to The New York Times (NYT).

It's obvious states that matter either didn't get the memo, haven't read the handbook, or cannot afford nor want to play by NATO's silly wishes. Since the US released Stuxnet which specifically targeted Iran's nuclear program why would any other state(s) involved not fully deploy their tactics in this cyber war. There's a whole lot of serious and scary "Bit-for-Byte" going on we may never know about, but unfortunately may realize its effects...

"the honeypot data produced 39 attacks from 14 countries. The largest number of attacks (35%) originated in China. 19% originated in the US, 12% in Laos, 8% in the UK, and 6% in Russia. The rest was distributed almost evenly (2%) across various Asian, South American and European countries. The researchers identified 12 of the attacks as 'targeted', and 13 were repeatedly carried out over several days. Apart from these 'targeted' and/or 'automated' attacks, the researchers are currently still investigating 14 further attacks. "

"Brian Krebs has always been a trailblazer among security reporters. His exposés completely shut down a California hosting service that coddled spammers and child pornographers and severely disrupted an organized crime syndicate known as Russian Business Network. More recently, his investigative journalism has followed the money to the people who sell malware exploit kits, illicitly procured credit reports, and denial-of-service services in underground forums.

Curious, is abortion the collective state's unnatural attempt to stem an unsustainable global population growth acknowledging we're living at the limit of our food supply and can no longer support its rise?
BTW, 56+ million abortions have been performed in the US since Roe v. Wade...and 1+ billion worldwide since 1980

"Chinese doctors have performed more than 330m abortions since the government implemented a controversial family planning policy 40 years ago, according to official data from the health ministry. "
