Shout Hacking Windows Vista

Posted in Hacks,Microsoft,News,Vista,Windows by Darrin Olson on February 4th, 2007

Shout Hackers attack Windows VistaAn novel security hole presented itself last week with the new version of Windows Vista released by Microsoft to customers around the world.

George Ou, and online blogger, reported on Tuesday through ZD Net that he was able to access the Start Menu on Vista and could potentially run programs through voice command audio files played through the system speakers. This type of functionality could allow a hacker to run programs, delete files and any number of other harmful processes accessible through the voice command functionality of Windows Vista.

Microsoft has attempted to downplay …

Time to Let Go of Your Windows XP

Posted in Windows XP by Darrin Olson on March 8th, 2014

Windows XP reaches end of lifeIt’s doubtful that any avid readers of the ‘brick are still sporting a Windows XP machine for their online perusing, however if you are (and our stats tell us that 15% of you Windows users visiting here are) you may want to pay attention.

After a few pushes of the date, Microsoft’s end of life for Windows XP is coming near and it appears they are sticking with it this time. After April 8, Microsoft will no longer be officially supporting the operating system. This doesn’t mean …

Anonymous posts 90,000 military e-mail accounts

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on July 11th, 2011

Looks like anonymous is not finished with its hacking just yet. They are claiming responsibility for an attack that targeted US military contractor Booz Allen Hamilton. The group reportedly posted e-mail accounts from 90,000 military personnel who were associated with the consulting company.

Along with the email accounts, the hackers allegedly posted 4GB of source code from the company’s servers, along with “some related data on different servers we got access to,”. The company was said to have been targeted due to their alleged role in the SWIFT surveillance program.

LulzSec takes down the CIA website

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on June 16th, 2011

What is it with hackers lately? The hacking group, LulzSec or Lulz Security, announced that they hacked the CIA last night on its twitter feed, saying “Tango down – cia.gov – for the lulz”. Apparently the site was only down for a short time, maybe an hour.

If they took any info they aren’t talking about it. If there is any motive behind the attack, they haven’t said so. Some have even speculated that Lulzsec is really a US government sponsored false flag operation designed to encourage lawmakers into granting more surveillance and control over the internet. It also might just be mindless fun to these hackers.

LulzSec says new anti-Sony hack campaign starts within a day

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on May 29th, 2011

Hacking collective Lulz Security says that it is about to launch a new campaign against Sony. The timeframe is “within the next day.” This follows attacks on Sony Music Japan and elsewhere. Of course, the group didn’t name its specific targets other than some Sony websites.

It doesn’t look like Lulz is responsible for the PSN hack that took down the network for three weeks. So why all the hate against Sony? Well, many don’t like it’s approach to trying to fight PS3 jailbreaking, including getting data on anyone who had even so much as visited hacker George Hotz’ website or commented on his YouTube videos.

Japan won’t let Sony turn PSN back on until they are sure it’s safe

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on May 16th, 2011

As Sony is busy getting PSN back in place in America, they still have all kinds of other problems thanks to the outage. Their latest problem comes from Japan. Apparently the Japanese government refuses to allow Sony to reactivate its network until they are satisfied it is safe.

Japan has two issues. The first is that the company’s promised counter-hacking measures, which were announced on May 1st, have not yet been fully enacted. The second is that Japan wants to see even more preventive measures taken to ensure that users’ credit card numbers and other private data will be safe.

Anonymous targets Sony over PS3 jailbreak suit

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on April 4th, 2011

The hacking group known as “Anonymous” has announced that it will turn its attention toward Sony for the legal action it has taken against hackers for hacking the PS3 console. Not good news for Sony as we saw what this group was willing to do a few months back over Julian Assange and Wikileaks.

Anonymous wrote to Sony, “your recent legal action against our fellow hackers, Geohot and Graf_Chokolo has not only alarmed us, it has been deemed wholly unforgivable.”

Dominos Pizza website hacked, customer data leaked

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on January 23rd, 2011

You might not be aware of this fact, but Dominos Pizza has been in India for more than a decade, so they decided to launch their online ordering system late last year. Clearly they weren’t ready for that move as a hacker managed to get a lot of customer data by hacking into their server.

The company isn’t saying what the extent of the damage is, but they have sent an apologetic letter to customers. Online privacy is apparently not taken very seriously. Their privacy policy is dated 2005.

Hacked Wiimote saves scientists money

Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on December 15th, 2009

Hacked Wiimote saves scientists moneyHacking a Wiimote is nothing new, but William Luxemburg from the Delft University of Technology is using the Wiimote and an LED light as a water-level sensor, measuring evaporation. The image tells the story. Just a tub of water with a Wiimote pointing at a plastic boat.

It’s simple and cost-effective and yields the same, or better results than pressure sensors that cost $500 or more. He re-programmed the Wiimote’s output and when it was connected wirelessly to a laptop he was able to receive real-time information on what the water level was doing in the tub.

iTwin to Connect Remote Computers Easily via USB

Posted in Networking by Darrin Olson on September 15th, 2009

iTwin Remote USB ConnectionA new startup company called iTwin has what they are touting as some simple hardware to connect remote computers together and share information. The iTwin device consists of two USB drives that start out hooked together, but then can be plugged into separate computers to allow instant sharing of files. The designers state they realized that many people understand how to use a USB drive, but small USB drives hold a limited amount of data and lack in security if you lose the drive.

A user of the iTwin drives can connect them to a single computer and drop some files into the drive, then disconnect the second USB drive. The second USB can then be taken to another computer somewhere else in the world and plugged in, giving instant and automatic access between the two computers. A number of hurdles immediately come to mind when thinking about how this could work with everything from individual computer firewalls and port security, to network firewalls, internet connections and authentication on both ends. But, according to the designers of iTwin it basically makes a connection between the two computers as if they have a “cable-less cable”. The file sharing is unlimited and encrypted, and by simply unplugging one end, the other end is left useless for any attempting hacking.

USB powered chainsaw

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on July 8th, 2009

isawWhen it comes to USB gadgets, it doesn’t get any cooler or deadlier than this. It’s a reminder that we can push USB technology further when it comes to power tools, whether for taking care of odd jobs or hacking a fake plastic tree.

Thank you usbchainsaw.com for showing us the way. Sure, it’s likely a hoax, but USB powered saws are something to aspire to. Office arguments can now end in dismemberment. And next time your secretary gets your coffee wrong…look out. Hit the link for a video.

Judge overturns conviction in MySpace suicide case

Posted in News by Darrin Olson on July 3rd, 2009

Lori Drew acquitted by judge in MySpace suicide caseA federal judge in Los Angeles overturned a guilty verdict on Thursday against Lori Drew, a participant in a cyberbullying hoax against a 13-year-old girl who later committed suicide.

According to U.S. District Judge George Wu, the federal case against Drew revolved around the idea that violating the terms of service for MySpace was the equivalent of computer hacking, which “…leaves it up to a website owner to determine what is a crime”. Wu threw out the …

Worm virus could bring down US power grid

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on March 24th, 2009

Worm virus could bring down US power gridThe idea of hackers bringing down the entire US power grid is scary. Most people think that this scenario strictly belongs in sci-fi movies and that it couldn’t happen, but according to security analysts, the threat is real. The threat is a real possibility due to the use of smart grids involving two million devices, which are largely wireless, sending data back and forth between power stations and homes.

Researchers at Seattle based IOActive claim that they have proven that the devices are vulnerable to virus attack by hacking. Equipment worth just $500 was enough to create a worm virus which spread rapidly across the network. Had that been a real hacker, there would have been some serious damage.
