Good Democrats and left-leaning people of Alabama, I have your back

As a Floridian, we regularly get shat upon. Some of it deservedly so. Some of it not.

I really get sick of the regional stereotypes about the South and Texas. Yes, SOME of our citizens are "impaired" to put it politely, but the rest of us, especially Democrats and liberals, are not.

I don't indulge in stereotypes about other parts of the country, because I know they are odious. They are also false.

In solidarity with the good DU'ers from Alabama. I feel your pain.

Malvertising strikes once again (screenshotted this time)



No, my machine is clean. I am extremely careful. Just scanned my machine again with 2 AV and 100% clean.

This shite came from this page Don't click that link unless you're prepared to deal with malvertising.

One of the best disco/R&B songs of all time: Rubberband Man by the Spinners (1976)

Just as good as it was 41 years ago. Good stuff!

Factcheck.org: Debunking False Vaccine Claim (that the FDA said vaccines cause autism)

http://www.factcheck.org/2017/11/debunking-false-vaccine-claim/

Q: Has the Food and Drug Administration announced that vaccines cause autism?
A: No. FDA statements are grounded in scientific evidence. There is no evidence that vaccination is linked to autism.

FULL QUESTION

FDA ANNOUNCED THAT VACCINES ARE CAUSING AUTISM! Is this true?

Imgur confirms email addresses, passwords stolen in 2014 hack

http://www.zdnet.com/article/imgur-reveals-hackers-stole-login-data/

Imgur, one of the world's most visited websites, has confirmed a hack dating back to 2014.

The company told ZDNet that hackers stole 1.7 million email addresses and passwords, scrambled with the SHA-256 algorithm, which has been passed over in recent years in favor of stronger password scramblers.

Imgur said the breach didn't include personal information because the site has "never asked" for real names, addresses, or phone numbers.

The stolen accounts represent a fraction of Imgur's 150 million monthly users.

We might want to keep this kicked for a day or so. A lot of DU'ers use Imgur. I almost put this in CHaS but I thought it was more important than our usual forum.

Linus Torvalds on security: 'Do no harm, don't break users'

https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/11/24/linus_torvalds_approach_to_security/

Linus Torvalds has offered a lengthy explanation of his thoughts on security, in which he explained a calmer and more detailed version of his expletive-laden thoughts on the topic earlier this week.

Torvalds was angry that developers wanted to kill dangerous processes in Linux, a measure that would have removed potential problems but done so in ways that users may not have enjoyed.

His long post on the matter suggested to security practitioners that “'Do no harm' should be your mantra for any new hardening work.”

“And that 'do no harm' may feel antithetical to the whole point,” Torvalds adedd. “You go 'but that doesn't work - then the bug still exists.' But remember - keep your eye on the endpoint, and that this is just the first step. You need to not piss off users, and you need to not piss of developers.”
