In general, it’s a great idea to reboot the main Internet router every couple of months.
Wow, I've been rebooting mine no less than once a day for decades.
Sandboxing has been around a long time. There are other alternatives I won't go into here.
Called a Stackelberg feedback solution, this hierarchal maneuver allows the system to commit to processing information based on a set of pre-computable thresholds, which depends on time and the number of transmission opportunities left. The jammer is left out of consideration as the sensor, encoder, and decoder decide together what, how, and when to process.
While effective, the solution is currently limited to one channel. The researchers hope to change that.
"Our goal is to extend the model introduced in the paper to more complex systems, allowing for more general source processes, multiple sensors, multiple channels, and sensors that are equipped with an energy harvester that has the potential to replenish the sensor's used energy based on random availability of such resources—such as solar or wind power," Basar said.
When I read an article such as the one linked to above, I'm always mindful that sophisticated hackers can route traffic through particular nations and dead end the traffic there upon any trace-back. That capability is nearly always left out for political reasons.
... the paper ballot is generated by the machine and can thus be corrupted at the source, rendering a meaningful audit impossible.
Stark, who invented the widely recommended audit technique known as a risk-limiting audit, warned Georgia lawmakers about this, but “they ignored his warning,” DeMillo said.
In my view, if you're deliberately choosing a vulnerable system, you're not trying to keep the Russians out but likely, at the very least, keeping things open to hacking via those on your side. That was not mentioned in the article as a possibility. This same issue has been going on now since the Bush-Gore election. Why is it taking so long for the US to install a fully auditable system if not for election fraud from the inside? Yes, there are contractors who may be favored who are rewarded monetarily, but the real issue is glaring vulnerabilities.
Who says girls can't code or hack?
“But the Terabytches, our female team and also our youngest team really overperformed. They finished top three in Canada in the gold division in state finals and then finished as a top female team in the country,” said King.
However, Mr Mitnik raised concerns, saying hackers may just be able to simply access and replicate the brain wave pattern to access systems.
“Usually attackers don’t go with the front door,” he said. “They find alternate routes. So what type of replay mitigation has been incorporated into the product? Could they just replay someone’s brain wave pattern?”
Other potential problems include consumption of substances such as caffeine or alcohol may alter brain waves, making it harder to log in as they can interfere with the pattern of waves produced.
It could also be the key to learning to read your mind. How safe would you be then surrounded by criminals and others out to do you harm and to harm those you love?
Cisco's RV320 and RV325 router models for small offices and small businesses remain vulnerable to two high-severity flaws two months after the vendor announced the availability of patches. The fixes failed their purpose and attackers can still chain the bugs to take control of the devices.
RedTeam Pentesting notified Cisco of the incomplete patch on February 8 and sent a PoC to demonstrate the faulty mitigation of the issue.
In mid-February, the researchers informed Cisco that they would disclose the vulnerabilities publicly on March 27, thus giving the vendor more than 30 days to come up with a proper solution.
Cisco asked to postpone the disclosure but RedTeam Pentesting did not budge this time.
I would like to know why RedTeam Pentesting did not agree to postpone. Is RedTeam Pentesting under the impression that Cisco was dragging its feet or not taking the problem seriously enough or not throwing enough resources at the problem in a timely manner or what? I think were I RedTeam Pentesting, I would have disclosed that the vulnerability exists but not how to exploit it.
Router owners should have had an opportunity to buy a replacement or replacements before being exposed via RedTeam Pentesting's code publication. Cisco should also have notified all impacted router owners privately as much as possible before disclosure.
