Several Greenpeace activists hung a 70-foot political banner from a crane near the White House today. The banner measures 70-by-35 feet and is strategically positioned so that anyone looking at the South Lawn can clearly see the message directed at President Donald Trump. The sign has just one word – “RESIST’.

According to Human Rights Watch, who released their 2017 World Report this week, this year might be even worse than we are expecting.
Here’s a collection of fashionable Trump “Nope” posters based on the iconic Barack Obama poster.
Full text of ICA-2017-1 – Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections (with annotations)
The following was released to the general public on January 6, 2017 by the DNI (Director of National Intelligence). In short, the release accuses Russia of attempting to influence the US’s 2016 election using a persona known as Guccifer 2.0 to release stolen (hacked) documents via Wikileaks. Regular readers will not be surprised by the […]
Here’s the answer to at least one “hitman” service provider on the Dark Web. BesaMafia offer contract kills and other forms of intimidation for a price. Today they have announced they are closed for business and explained.
How we know Russia hacked the US election – analysis of the DNC hack (and why Assange and Guccifer 2.0 are best buds)
Assange served as the gateway for stolen US government documents that appeared to be an attempt to influence the US election process. The documents were rumored to come from the Russian government and an enigmatic lone-wolf hacker known as Guccifer 2.0.
The new Rule 41 dictate is going to be law and it’s a doozy, both mind-boggling (for its stupidity) and stomach-churning (for its stupidity) at the same time. Effectively, what the law does is allow any judge, anywhere (including Podunk, Texas), to grant a warrant for electronic surveillance of any US citizen. If you thought […]
Trump minions fight back with combo Sieg-Heil-Trump parade and George Soros protest in locations across the US
They’re calling themselves a part of Anonymous and to prove they’re a lot smarter than the Alt-Righters, threw up a Dox of George Soros (who they say funds Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, etc.). Turns out the “Dox” was nothing more than a nifty little bio (see below). Today they announced a “nationwide Trump […]
Here’s all you need to know about the dangerous Alt-Right movement – straight from the Breitbart (Stephen Bannon’s) published manifesto
In early 2016, Brietbart News published an explanation of their Alt-Right movement. It attempted to defend and justify the Alt-Rights rhetoric. Let’s take a trip through the manifesto, with quotes directly taken from Breitbart’s published philosophy, and untangle the purple prose to reveal what the Breitbart’s “brainy” Alt-Right really believe.
Anonymous posts message clarifying stance and denouncing Julan Assange, Vladimir Putin, and Donald Trump as fascists

Why are students at Texas State University dying to have a good time (while officials ignore the elephant in the room)
Conveniently situated off I-35, splitting the authority of Hays County and Guadalupe County, the campus sits near San Marcos River and Guadalupe River – both popular party destinations for students of an age when rational adult-like decision-making is just beginning to take root. Being a “party school” may be a good draw for the local […]
The Shadow Brokers published another encrypted drop today on Medium which they say reveals NSA IP addresses linked to the Equation Group (some believe Equation Group is a NSA hacking cooperative). TSB’s drop uses the same PGP as previous drops so it appears to be legit.
The first thought for anyone who has examined the Mirai codebase is how well the application was coded. The second thought is how easy it would be to disable. Being a C&C server inherently means you can control the Mirai botnet with it – even to the point of shutting it down – permanently.
Maybe other router manufacturers are as magnificently dumb as D-Link but regardless, get rid of all D-Link routers and vow to never buy another D-Link product for a long as your lungs suck in air. The security vulnerabilities present in their devices, especially the DWR-932B router, are so far beyond stupid, well, you’d swear the […]
Just a week after Brian Krebs was hit with a 620Gbps IoT attack, reports are hitting the wires that OVH has been hit with an even larger attack – two simultaneous barrages of 799Gbps and 191Gbps for a whopping 990Gbps total. And this may only be the beginning…
I wasn’t too happy to hear that Akamai dropped security researcher/writer Brian Krebs last week after Kreb’s website sustained the largest-ever DDoS attack. In short, they basically offered Krebs protection from DDoS attacks until, well, they said they couldn’t. Then they dropped him leaving Krebs to fend for himself.
