51  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Slack.com Database Hacked! on: March 27, 2015, 04:57:59 PM

March 2015 Security Incident and the Launch of Two Factor Authentication
Posted March 27th, 2015

We were recently able to confirm that there was unauthorized access to a Slack database storing user profile information. We have since blocked this unauthorized access and made additional changes to our technical infrastructure to prevent future incidents. We have also released two factor authentication and we strongly encourage all users to enable this security feature.
We are very aware that our service is essential to many teams. Earning your trust through the operation of a secure service will always be our highest priority. We deeply regret this incident and apologize to you, and to everyone who relies on Slack, for the inconvenience.
Here is some specific information we can share about this incident:
Slack maintains a central user database which includes user names, email addresses, and one-way encrypted (“hashed”) passwords. In addition, this database contains information that users may have optionally added to their profiles such as phone number and Skype ID.

Information contained in this user database was accessible to the hackers during this incident.

We have no indication that the hackers were able to decrypt stored passwords, as Slack uses a one-way encryption technique called hashing.

Slack’s hashing function is bcrypt with a randomly generated salt per-password which makes it computationally infeasible that your password could be recreated from the hashed form.

Our investigation, which remains ongoing, has revealed that this unauthorized access took place during a period of approximately 4 days in February. As soon as the evidence was uncovered, we started communication with the affected teams.  The announcement was made as soon as we could confirm the details and as fast as we could type.

No financial or payment information was accessed or compromised in this attack.

52  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: Hosting with Bluehost for $3.50/mo + a free year of Learnable on: March 27, 2015, 04:54:13 PM
Just FYI, There is no affiliate link on that page which would make the deal happen  tellme

*edit*  There is a link to BlueHost on that page, but it isn't an affiliate link...just a normal one, which does show the $3.50/Month price, so...Maybe the learnable thing is hidden elsewhere...or I am blind *shrugs*

I still say spam:

He registered, posted this, then left...typical of a spammer.

The reason that I wouldn't have a knee jerk reaction in the other direction of spam is the fact that there are countless others who have done the same thing- most of them just say your software sucks!  Or why is this so hard?  And never come back.  Though the way in which it is posed is a bit rude, it still is good for rumination.

I think that's why mouser has decided to leave it here tbh, in one way, if it is spam...oh well...it gives everybody a chance to weigh in and defend DC...which they have done here ^_^

Either way, I still say spam...or angry person...or the dev of pretty-software needs fresh users and thought he could lure some from here (Apologies if the pretty-software dev had nothing to do with this!)  Grin

pretty-software.com does the same as Find and Run Robot and it is really free Grin

I shall ignore the obvious spammy factors of a first time poster, linking to a competitors products (Not sure if this guy is the dev, or just a fan...)

However,  I wasn't aware that FARR, or in fact, ANYTHING from DC wasn't free...yes you need a license key in order to stop it moaning at you in like 6 months time...but...it is still free....Registering on the forum to get a key, is free...entering the key, is free...donating is 100% optional...so...it's free...and seeing as pretty-software also ask for donations, I don't see how anything other than the license key is different.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Could also do something like this:

Then have it printed somewhere (I'm sure there will be a printers near you that could do it on appropriate paper in an appropriate way.)

Gogogo guys and girls!

Can't believe how long I have been here and how many words I must have typed during that time...be it on the forum or in the IRC....Y'all can thank app103 for me being here  Grin
58  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: 10th Anniversary - long time member check-in thread on: March 24, 2015, 04:31:38 PM
I guess this would be a good place to spam the link to all the people who have not been here for ages!

If any of you guys are on Facebook, and would like to keep up with the important things that are happening on DC from time to time, then you should "like" our Facebook Page! xD

On a less spammy note...It really is fantastic to see all these old names popping up!  Welcome back guys and girls, even if it was only for that one post!  cheesy

Oh, I mentioned www.moonpig.com on IRC...but you never mentioned wanting "multiple people" to sign it...don't think you can do that on there tbh, so...yeah...  huh

When I first noticed that Automation was in development, I thought ‘here goes another build-your-own car game where reality and basic engineering principles don’t exist. Oh well, I’ll keep my eye on it.’ I downloaded the demo, and curiosity eventually got the best of me. I contacted the developers who kindly supplied a copy of the full game under the condition that I wouldn't reveal anything until it went to early release on Steam. As I began exploring the game, my desk became the epicentre of a massive facepalm storm. What is wrong with me? Why did I let other games destroy my faith? Why didn’t I get my hands on this game sooner?

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYoL5pK2X-c" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYoL5pK2X-c</a>

After playing with the Demo available from the official website, I can confirm that this game takes things to an entire new level of detail.  I thought I might be able to jump straight in to the design process without really understanding it...I was wrong...This isn't so much a game as it is a learning tool..but is is being called a "Tycoon Game" because they are including a crap load of tutorial videos within the software, and also some gaming modes (Suppose you have to expand your market somehow!)

Certainly worth a looksie!

Available on Steam (Early Access) and Direct Download from the Developer Website

This should give you some pretty in depth info into car maintenance cheesy
63  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: DonationCoder 10th Anniversary plans, ideas, changes, fundraiser? on: March 21, 2015, 05:41:04 PM
My 2cents:

1. The ;wap, ;wap2 etc, are bloody HORRIFIC to the point I personally would rather sprain my eyes trying to read DC in a tiny font...or not read it at all via mobile.  I rarely visit DC on my mobile BECAUSE of how horrible it looks via the "mobile" versions and how much it hurts my eyes to try read using the standard one.

2. Software on DC is a primary focus of the site, but also one of the most frustrating things about it.  Go ahead and try browse for something random...I dare you...you will be lost in a sea of threads...never really knowing much about it...that's if you can even be bothered filtering through tens of thousands of posts to do so...With this in mind, DC IMHO REALLY needs a Repository of sorts.  It has always been known that DC is about the Donationware...but unless you know the site inside and out...or know exactly what you want and where to find it...you have no chance in hell of getting anywhere.


3.  There needs to be an incentive for people to register and actually stay here...for the moment, most people come here for one reason, and one reason only....to get a license key for one of mousers creations...I don't have the statistic, but I am willing to bet that over 90% of the users registered on DC have <5 posts, and again, 90% of those I reckon will be people who have never posted...so yes, DC has big numbers in theory...but what use are registered users if they never post or participate...they need something to make them want to participate...I have no idea what this is at this moment, but if it opens up a discussion then fantastic.

4. Things like the "News Ticker" at the top of the site, make DC look like it is never updated...right now I have the following "News"...

The N.A.N.Y. Challenge 2010! Download 24 custom programs!

How is that news?  That is 5 years ago.....that is NOT news :/ ...  Oh wait...I refresh the page...and I get this:

Check out and download the GOE 2007 Freeware Challenge productivity tools.

8 YEARS OLD!

...Refreshed the page and now got...

Forbidden

I think the DC site knows I am scrutinizing it and has kicked me off lmao...it's back now though smiley

I'm going to bed now but will post more in the morning smiley

That Elio looks pretty odd...the front wheels remind me of a small aircraft and I was kind of expecting it to sprout wings and fly away o.O

I don't actually know what I would use it for tbh.  A little home render farm would be fantastic for 3D design and such (Both me and my Father-in-law both dabble in it so it would be useful for both of us, especially if I made the farm portable!)

Gotta admit...I am HUGELY tempted to buy a batch of these to cluster together (Maybe 10-16 of them in total), and run Windows 10 on them...would be a sweet little supercomputer to have at home xD
