danooct1 The long awaited video of CIH trashing a standalone PC's BIOS and rendering the computer unable to boot. This video comes fourteen years to the day after CIH first unleashed its devastating payload upon the world. When CIH infects files, it checks to see whether there are enough gaps to completely store its code, rather than simply writing its code to the end of the file and increasing file size. If it has enough space, CIH will infect the file without increasing file size. On April 26th (in the original variant), CIH activates, overwriting part of the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) and overwriting the first megabyte of all hard disks in an endless loop, causing the computer to crash. I realize RogueAmp does have a video of CIH doing this same thing, but now there is a video of it activating in HD and with narration, which I feel is invaluable to the whole experience.

LORE See what's next on Maker.TV ► Whetzel's got the origin story of The Legend of Zelda! Written by Phil: Voiced by Jimmy Whetzel: Animated by Edgar Nielsen: Transcript: 1985 saw the world completely enthralled in Nintendo's groundbreaking Super Mario Brothers, but its designer, Shigeru Miyamoto, was already hard at work on what would become his next masterpiece: The Legend of Zelda. Inspired by his childhood experiences of exploring forests and caves, Miyamoto teamed up with Takashi Tezuka to create a game that would impart a sense of freedom and wonder to the player - the complete opposite of Super Mario which relied heavily on high scores and arcade-style gameplay. Yet, with all its innovations, the Legend of Zelda still had one last revolutionary feature packed into the cartridge: game saving.

Across America, whites are biased and they don’t even know it Most white Americans demonstrate bias against blacks, even if they're not aware of or able to control it. It's a surprisingly little-discussed factor in the anguishing debates over race and law enforcement that followed the shootings of unarmed black men by white police officers. Such implicit biases -- which, if they were to influence split-second law enforcement decisions, could have life or death consequences -- are measured by psychological tests, most prominently the computerized Implicit Association Test, which has been taken by over two million people online at the website Project Implicit. Based on this data, it appears that whites in some states may exhibit higher levels of implicit bias than those in other states. A cautionary note: The people who have taken the IAT at the Project Implicit website are not a random sample of Americans, either nationally or on a state-by-state basis. So, let's take some time to unpack further what this image means -- and doesn't mean.

William Spaniel Game Theory 101: The Complete Textbook on Amazon: Two prisoners are locked into separate interrogation rooms. The cops know they were trespassing and believe they were planning on robbing a store, but they lack sufficient evidence to charge them with the latter crime. Thus, they offer the prisoners the following deal: If no one confesses, both will only be charged with trespassing and receive a sentence of one month. If each prisoner only want to minimize the amount of time he spends in jail, what should they do? This lesson introduces the concept of strict dominance, which is a very useful tool for a game theorist.

Gallery: The power of water “Maybe ignorance is bliss, but we can’t be ignorant any more. The consequences are too dire for human health and the health of the planet.” Photographer Ed Burtynsky is contemplating climate change, an unheralded but ever-present character in his latest book and film, Watermark, a clip of which he showed at TED2014 in Vancouver. “There is a fundamental flaw in democracy, where career politicians vie for power in the next election and long-term thinking has somehow disappeared,” he told me last week. Over the past few decades, Burtynsky’s work has regularly considered the impact of man on the natural world, presenting beautiful, stark imagery that takes a step back from the immediate to provide a breathtaking, disconcerting look at what we’re doing to our world. “My work is not about providing answers,” says Burtynsky firmly.

Cyberwar Timeline: The roots of this increasingly menacing challenge facing nations and businesses by Beth Rowen A cyberattack is the deliberate breaching of an entity's computer system with the intent of stealing intellectual property or financial resources; disabling, wiping out, or manipulating a computer or network; or causing other damage or disruption to a computer-driven system. The threat of a cyberattack is a serious concern for governmental, military, and business leaders. In fact, President Obama has called such a threat, "one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation." Below is a timeline tracing the roots of this increasingly menacing challenge facing nations and businesses all over the world. As the timeline that follows illustrates, China appears to be the biggest aggressor when it comes to cyber attacks. Information Please® Database, © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.
