    If you are still running Windows 7, might I suggest applying some of this to your computer for protection:

    Right, because mouth holes aren't as useful as eye holes, through transparent material...

    The added condensation is improving the disguise.
    How to tell the difference between Machine Learning and AI:
    If it is written in Python it is most likely Machine Learning.
    If it is written in PowerPoint it is most likely AI.

    It's just an example.

    So this Clearview thing.

    Leaving aside how it will obviously be abused at a (relatively) low level by the clients & their employees, such as by spousal abuse & stalking - it will ultimately get people murdered. It's acutely damaging to wit-sec practices, will see undercover police work becoming significantly more risky, American born agents in foreign countries getting ID'd... I mean, in my casual reasoned opinion it wouldn't be entirely a shame if everyone involved were on the same crashed plane and the office mysteriously burnt down overnight, but that's just like my opinion, man.

    EDIT: oh and get ready for the aggressive harassment of activists to get turned to 11. This is also a technical foundation for hyper-personal advertising in public spaces, enjoy everyone else on the tube knowing you've been browsing Bad Dragon.

    It's black mirror-esque nightmare fuel technology.

    EDIT EDIT: On reflection, I seriously undersold how bad spousal abuse & stalking are, but oh boy stalking is just gonna EXPLODE with this.

    haha this is actually giving me anxiety

    The only winning move is not to play social media.

    Or to be into such an eclectic mix of stuff that no one can figure you out.

    Another week, another major Intel CPU vulnerability. https://cacheoutattack.com/

    Intel can no longer keep the floodgates closed, researchers are going to keep pushing every variation of attack until they dry up or everyone's stopped using Intel CPUs that lack fixes (none will exist for years yet, meanwhile Ryzen have been available for almost 3 years).

    A losely security related question: is there a defacto standard email address (like abuse@, hostmaster@) for receiving security related emails, i.e is security@ a thing?

    Their stock is up 2.75% today. This shit is already priced in at this point.

    There was an old US law from the 90s that required every email server to have a postmaster@example.com address that was read by a human, not a machine. My testing of this showed it was...hit or miss. Still, it's worth a shot.

    Literally not a single fuck was given about this one mate

    Also, fun fact: It is an increasingly common best practice now for firewalls to block access to newly registered domains. All these prima donna "security" researcher cunts may finally be forced to actually disclose their vulnerabilities properly through the NVD instead of a flashy brand and a fucking press release.

    Yeah, we have those in place. But they serve a different purpose from the outside perspective. Internally all those may be aliases of the same mailbox.
