Feds Are Suspects in New Malware That Attacks Tor Anonymity

The malware showed up Sunday morning on multiple websites hosted by the anonymous hosting company Freedom Hosting. That would normally be considered a blatantly criminal “drive-by” hack attack, but nobody’s calling in the FBI this time. The FBI is the prime suspect. “It just sends identifying information to some IP in Reston, Virginia,” says reverse-engineer Vlad Tsyrklevich. If Tsrklevich and other researchers are right, the code is likely the first sample captured in the wild of the FBI’s “computer and internet protocol address verifier,” or CIPAV, the law enforcement spyware first reported by WIRED in 2007. The code has been used sparingly in the past, which kept it from leaking out and being analyzed or added to anti-virus databases.

Telephony For the past year or so, I’ve been doing work on an Asus 1000HE EeePC.

Well, its no longer “working” for me. Don’t get me wrong… it’s a great little netbook.. probably one of the best made still to this day. It’s got excellent battery life, pretty quick, lightweight, and very small. But as a computer programmer and web developer, I just need something (literally) bigger. But not too big. I just want a laptop I can quickly throw in my bag and take to the coffee shop, and yet which has a big enough screen to actually get some business done on it. I was sort of surprised to see that in terms of hardware layout and “slickness” (pure coolness factor), there weren’t many companies trying to compete. So without further ado… the best “PC Air” that I found is the Toshiba Portege R835-P56X.

Let’s take a look at the specs compared to the Macbook Air… keying in on the most important features. Portability / Size Now lets take a look at the power aspect. Power Price Highly Rated Accessories.

Brainstorming is a large or small group activity which encourages children to focus on a topic and contribute to the free flow of ideas.
