Hackers in Britain

Well, until the hacker news is in place I beleave this deserves to be said.. Hackers in Britain hacked a very well used train station and the results were truly fatal. The alleged hackers got a list of social security numbers and every other bit of information on every worker at a very well used and known train station. Using the information they extracted almost 22 thousand Euro. thats almost 26.2 thousand USD. The hackers amazingly remained anonymous and the government is just now going into investigation. This sort of media attention is what gives hackers a bad name, but then again shows how much the world of hackers knows. make sure to comment.

$100 laptops,

The \'Green Machine\' a nick name for the new laptop created by MIT (Masichusis Institute of Technology) which will only cost $100 . This Laptop, which features a 500MHz processor and only 1Gb of memory but with 4 USB ports and a built in Networking Card has been hailed a God send by many chatiry agencies because of its massive implications in not only the education of these children, but helping to make sure they are not forgotten by keeping them up to date with modern technology to provide them a future. Another feature many of you will love is the fact that because of cost and hardware issues it will run on linux[ As it\'s free and uses less system resources.] and obivously they massive amount of small linux distros means its ideal for such a simple laptop. Unfortunatly this laptop will not be availible unless you live in a 3rd world( developing) country as it wont be up for sale.

Windows Genuine DIS-Advantage

Days after Microsoft launched a new anti-piracy program, hackers have found a way to get around it. The software company\'s new program, called Windows Genuine Advantage, requires computer users to go through a process validating that they\'re running a legitimate copy of the Windows operating system before downloading any software updates except for security patches. But the check can be bypassed by entering a simple JavaScript command in the Web browser\'s address bar and hitting the \"Enter\" key. When that\'s done, the validation does not run and the user is taken directly to the download. Microsoft said it was investigating and that the glitch was not a security vulnerability. The hack appears only to work when a computer user is trying to download software through the Windows Update service. Some software, such as Microsoft\'s AntiSpyware beta, isn\'t available there but can be found elsewhere on microsoft.com. Such downloads also require validation, but the hack does not appear to work. On Friday, attempts to download the antispyware program resulted in a server error, with a message that read, \"It appears that our activation servers are not functioning properly.\" All Windows users, even those with pirated copies, can still download security patches. For any other software updates, Microsoft now requires computer users to validate that their computers aren\'t running counterfeit copies of Windows. :CLICK READ MORE:

U.S. Government goes to Hackers Convention 2005


As you may or may have not heard, one of the largest hackers conventions have just taken place a few weeks ago. Anyways, this time there was a twist at the convention. Instead of the government trying to hunt down hackers there to prosecute them, they instead went \"talent scounting\" in hopes of recruiting some hackers for the government. They hope that with these new hackers, they will be better able to track down large crimes before they happen..... Click read more for the actual article....

Police ask for power to hit terrorist websites

Chief UK police officers are asking the government for new powers that would allow them to attack terrorist websites. The list of recommendations does not detail how police would attack websites but in many cases remotely disabling a web server involves a denial of service attack (i.e. sending floods of data to overwhelm it). Police added that the measure would help police stop the spread of child abuse images on the web. The ACPO statement said: \"This power has significant benefits for counter terrorism and overlaps with other police priorities namely domestic extremism and paedophilia. This issue goes beyond national borders and requires significant international co-operation. The need for appropriate authority and warranty is implicit.\" For more information, please visit the source of this information
