Hardware & Technology / badBIOS
« on: October 31, 2013, 06:02:26 PM »
"Ruiu said he arrived at the theory about badBIOS's high-frequency networking capability after observing encrypted data packets being sent to and from an infected laptop that had no obvious network connection with—but was in close proximity to—another badBIOS-infected computer. The packets were transmitted even when the laptop had its Wi-Fi and Bluetooth cards removed. Ruiu also disconnected the machine's power cord so it ran only on battery to rule out the possibility it was receiving signals over the electrical connection. Even then, forensic tools showed the packets continued to flow over the airgapped machine. Then, when Ruiu removed the internal speaker and microphone connected to the airgapped machine, the packets suddenly stopped"

Marketing / Facebook marketing? Don't bother, says Forrester report
« on: October 29, 2013, 02:11:23 PM »
Survey results from Forrester make for dismal reading for Facebook when 395 marketers from the U.S., the U.K. and Canada were asked how satisfied they were with the business value they get from 13 different online marketing sites and tactics. Facebook came last behind the likes of Twitter, Google Plus, and YouTube. Out of the six largest online and social properties as marketing partners, Facebook once again fared poorly with just 51 percent of respondents saying they were satisfied - behind Google (GOOG), LinkedIn (LNKD), and Yahoo.

Water Cooler / Coming Soon: remote keylogger app
« on: September 27, 2013, 04:41:49 PM »
Mobile phones contain an array of powerful sensors. While access to many of the most obvious sources of information is generally restricted, the use of a number of a number of other seemingly innocuous sensors is not. In this paper, we demonstrate that unfettered access to accelerometer data allows a malicious application to recover and decode the vibrations caused by keypresses on a nearby keyboard. By characterizing consecutive pairs of keypress events, we demonstrate the ability to recover as much as 80% of typed content.

Economics & Investing / Something's screwed up at WallyWorld
« on: September 26, 2013, 06:46:05 PM »
I've been thinking about this for a couple of days now. Reading through it again, my bullshit alarm keeps going off.  Walmart doesn't screw up like this.
