If you have a dell laptop you need to make sure you are up to date.
A vulnerability in the Dell SupportAssist utility exposes Dell laptops and personal computers to a remote attack that can allow hackers to execute code with admin privileges on devices using an older version of this tool and take over users' systems.
Really long interesting article on Read Dead Redemption 2, a much awaited video game (I thought the original was one of the top 10 video games I had ever played).
The most brain-shattering example happens when you play dominoes. You can see neither the board nor your hand from the main default screen while playing dominoes. And I have a big TV, so please, it’s not the TV. But the game is designed so you can zoom in on the board, then zoom out, and then zoom back in on your hand. It’s designed to mimic what it would actually feel like to be realistically playing dominoes.
Some of us enjoy reading a good man versus machine detective story.
This is a long description of the process of getting access to the software running the head unit (audio, navigation, etc.) in his car.
Back in June, I purchased a new car: the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. This vehicle has an interesting head unit that's locked down and running a proprietary, non-Android operating system. Let's root it. If this was Android, we could most likely find plenty of pre-existing PoCs and gain root rather trivially as most vehicle manufacturers never seem to update Android. Because this isn't an old Android version, we'll have to put a little more work in than usual.
Longish interesting article on zdnet about a malware gang that was recently convicted of fraud and scamming people out of money.
The Bayrob malware gang's rise and fall: The story of how a talented computer science student and his friends created and ran a multi-million dollar botnet...
Interesting article on how a big game development team went off the rails.
Very few things went right in the development of BioWare’s latest game, an online cooperative shooter that was first teased in mid-2012 but spent years floundering in pre-production. Many features weren’t finalized or implemented until the very final months, and to some who worked on the project, it wasn’t even clear what kind of game Anthem even was until that E3 demo in June of 2017, less than two years before it actually came out.
