OUR GRANDKIDS WILL BE ROBOTS…

Robot1

It’s not about physical love. Every day people use more and more technology in their lives which makes them look like robots described in science fiction. You can see such cyborgs of 21st century on the subway playing with their iPhones or staring into space while listening their music. As for artificial limbs, organs and eyes? Already a reality.

Furthermore, robots have become more sophisticated. They can walk, talk and learn. Man and robot have become more alike and at some moment the difference will disappear. When this will happen – the problem will disappear. Sooner or later we will stop worrying about that, and that will be normal. So meet you on the other side!

Tor Network Is Under Attack through Directory Authority Servers Seizures

Tor Network Is Under Attack through Directory Authority Server Seizures

Tor has been targeted once again, but this time at a much larger scale. A new attack on Tor network reportedly would either completely shut it down worldwide or turn it into evil network.

This time Tor – an internet browser which allows people to maintain their anonymity online by protecting their location – is warning its users of a cyber attack that quietly seized some of its network specialized servers called Directory Authorities (DA), the servers that help Tor clients to find Tor relays in the anonymous network service.
Tor network architecture relies on ten Directory Authorities whose information is hardcoded into Tor clients. These directory authorities are located in the Europe and United States, and maintain the signed list of all the verified exit relays of the Tor network, and according to experts, attack on these backbone servers can “incapacitate” the overall architecture of Tor.
To keep the network updated and stable, at least 5-6 Directory Authorities (DA) must be operational, but if such seizure attempts take down 5 or more Directory Authorities server, the Tor network will become unstable, and the integrity of any updates to the consensus cannot be guaranteed.

Anonymous Hacks Swedish Government in Revenge for ‘Pirate Bay’ Takedown

Anonymous Hacks Swedish Government in Revenge for 'Pirate Bay' Takedown

An online “hacktivist” group that calls itself Anonymous has claimed responsibility for hacking into email accounts of Swedish government in response to the seizure of world renowned The Pirate Bay website and server by Swedish police last week.

Apart from Sweden government officials, the Anonymous hacktivist group also claimed to have hacked into the government email accounts of Israel, India, Brazil, Argentina, and Mexico, and revealed their email addresses with passwords in plain-text.
The Anonymous group also left a message at the end of the leak: “Warning: Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year to all!! Bye :*
The hack was announced by Anonymous group on their official Twitter account. The tweet also shared a link of Pastebin where leaked data has been dumped with the list of the emails. The tweet reads:

BREAKING: Emails from Swedish government were hacked in retaliation for the seizure of servers of The Pirate Bay http://pastebin.com/cxmiUSJD” (pastebin removed at the time of writing).

Last Tuesday, an infamous Torrent website predominantly used to share copyrighted material such as films, TV shows and music files, free of charge — The Pirate Bay went dark from the internet for almost half a day after Swedish Police raided the site’s server room in Stockholm and seized several servers and other equipment.

However, The Pirate Bay has previously been shut down number of times and had its domain seized, prompting the BitTorrent site to change its top level domain many times.

Earlier in September, The Pirate Bay claimed that it ran the notorious website on 21 “raid-proof” virtual machines, which means if one location is raided by the police, the site would hardly took few hours to get back in action.
