I got a $99 pawn shop laptop with Windows 10 on it. Grabbed my TAILS USB stick because gently caress it, shimazu already has its own XKeyScore differentiator. I did an AVG scan that popped positive in Windows, thus, TAILS.

There is an insane amount of amateur Cuban porn in a folder that's labeled "ERT_FLV". I didn't look too much further past that as I have poo poo I want to do with this drive.

So I'm now looking into how to really drill down on the thing and check for what's going on with the malware. I already know anti virus software sucks but this thing got like 20 red flags in AVG for ANCIENT rear end Windows XP specific poo poo, so it looks like I've got a good drive to try my hand at digital forensics with.

Porn and malware. Now I just gotta hope there isn't a tarball in there chock full of porn of the childish nature. I'm not browsing that many pictures of dicks and hairy snapper to find out.

Total drive space is a little under 63GB and it's got about 58GB of stuff.

Including Power Rangers CD video files in Spanish, and Captain Planet en espanol.

Homework for now though, doing statistics and probabilities for summer semester. VV

I've missed chatting with you about this poo poo in the hang out, glad your still around to shoot the breeze with about this.

Well John Mcafee loves crack and is pretty insane.
John Mcafee claimed to have hacked the iphone encryption awhile ago.
As proof, he sent journalists "brand new" smartphones and challenged them to prove him wrong.
Welp, it turns out hacked versions of iphone apps & re-shrinkwrapping the phones back into their boxes isn't quite breaking the apple encryption.
Spyware yes, encryption hacking: No.

So the lesson learned is: Always use facebook, always make a id based on your name, and don't be a Corky cosplayer.

For people confused by the Corky references, Corky is the downs syndrome actor from Life Goes On.
And Psydude = Corky from Life Goes On. Do not trust anything Corky says regarding computers, and real life.
Do trust anything Psydude says about the Special Olympics, after all he DID win 5 gold medals.

Real computing stuff.

Spam Nation by Brian Krebs.
A book about Russian spammers, it's pretty good.
And the first page of Chapter 2 should look eerily familiar to Shim. my Shim GET A LAWYER post in the get help thread

Kingpin by Kevin Poulsen.
A book about a really smart Computer dude named Max "Vision" with GiP levels of impulse control who hosed up his life over and over and over and over again.
Max Vision eventually went full credit card scammer kingpin. The book really gets into Vision's mindset and is really hilarious at points.
Kingpin should be read along with DarkMarket by Misha Glenny, it's basically a companion piece about the other side of the global credit card scammer network.

Added Bonus book: The author of Kingpin is a convicted telecommunications hacker, funny how that fact isn't mentioned anywhere in Kingpin.
The book about Kevin Poulsen's hacking exploits is called The Watchman: The Twisted Life and Crimes of Serial Hacker Kevin Poulsen by Jonathan Littman.
Littman also wrote a book about Kevin Mitnick, however I hate giving Mitnick any attention beyond: Mitnick was vicious & was/is a master social engineer.

ty for not including android in that list

in other news i bought a pie 3 this week and been futzing around with the idea of using it for MAME and 8 through 32 bit, but im not really happy with the performance. also i really want to have dreamcast games on my arcade cabinet, and it'd be nice to have killer instinct on there now that it's on windows 10.

im going to end up building a PC anyways (need it for lightgun games) so i'll end up using the pi for something else, maybe for back LED lighting that's sound activated for the cabinet

Back in '98 some OU students hacked the Feeb servers. I got to know one of them a few years later, like in '05, a Pakistani national as it turned out whose student greencard had expired and he didn't bother to try to renew it (he was no longer a student) There was a lot of national paranoia re: Asians, muslims, etc. around then.

We were going back and forth about some poo poo like "Are AV programs even worth a poo poo" because he thought no, and didn't use one. Then he felt compelled to cred up with his hacker resume, which was interesting.
I forget what his specialty was, but there was about 5 students, each who was good at something like decryption, social engineering, algorithms, sniffers, I don't recall. Like a movie plot. And they were nosing around in the f** servers when they got traced back to the internal campus network, then running Novell, and using the private 172.xxx. internal I.P. That's B class, which means thousands of addresses. Next thing they knew, the fedreales were in town looking specifically for who was at the other end. They all ditched their PC's, split town according to him, some never coming back. It was never solved.

This has been my experience when faced with your arrangement. Work it into the convo organically though. Be like, making a pot of coffee and comment that the last time you spilled that much brown was during the second intifada.Try and also emphasize a bulge in your pants too so she's thinking about your dick too. Just captain Morgan it up with a chair and get the thinnest dress pants you own to wrap so tight around your cock that not only will she know your cut, but veiny too.

Good. Thing is, he got nabbed by INS and thrown into a dark hole for several weeks. He didn't show up at work and no one knew where he was. They didn't really give a poo poo about anything except was he some A-Q mole, which he wasn't. If any of them had better than poo poo for brains, which they don't, they'd have recruited him and his skilz and his perfect arabic instead of tossing his rear end out and saying "DON'T COME BACK". He loved this country.
