A recently mobilized toddler is like a free home penetration test.

It’s blowing my mind that Beto was in the Cult of the Dead Cow. I’m sure a lot of you don’t understand what this means, but it’s the computer geek version of finding out Bernie Sanders was in the Wu-Tang Clan

What a wretched world we live in, filled with fragile men who visit unspeakable evil on others so that they might feel a little less scared inside.

I dunno, the account was seemingly created five days ago, has five followers, mentions "Cyber" in both the handle and bio and they post the same exact reply+gif to anyone who questions Resecurity's work. I, for one, am stumped.

At the end of the day, you want to provide value to your clients ( or readers) and that entails taking some calculated risks, hopefully backed up by a lot of hard work. When you do fail, correct the record and use those mistakes to learn for the next time.

I really love this thread, and the same lessons can and do often apply in journalism. Obviously nobody ever wants to get it wrong, but that same fear can also drive you to play things too safe and simply restate the existing consensus or miss out on the bigger picture.

Man I can tell you this: if I ever get called up to testify before Congress, I will make DAMN SURE that I know beforehand how to correctly pronounce the Chairman/Chairwoman's name. Unreal how often this happens.

Yes, the Milwaukee plumber who couldn't find Iraq if you gave him a map and who stupidly believed his political leaders is JUST as culpable for the Iraq War as Bill Kristol, Max Boot and the Project for a New American Century if you think about it.

I chuckled at that too. Krebs was like "ok this dude can play let's go."

Really interesting blog by analysts with a behind the scenes look at how threat intel organizations track new clusters of activity, map them to the current landscape and eventually connect or "graduate" them to big boy APT world.

Here’s the thing about the US Defense Industrial Base. The average person thinks of the largest companies (BAE, Boeing, General Dynamics, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, SAIC...etc.) when we think of who builds the missiles/tanks/ships/airplanes/satellites. 1/n

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the Internet: where you can read about a massive college admissions scandal involving Lori Loughlin at 11am and listen to the Full House parody song before dinner.
