Okay, don't tell anybody... this is the REAL plan for "The Interview"


They set up a website at SeeTheInterview.com where, for the mere entry of a credit card number and expiration date, you can watch the movie.

So, every data thief is going to use a stolen credit card number to watch it.

Solstice Greetings!


My sunset tonight....




Solstice Ride Today

"Too much Sony drama"



http://www.zdnet.com/article/zero-day-weekly-icann-hacked-critical-github-vuln-too-much-sony-drama/

The threat became a convenient foil for Sony's worsening headlines, and has been re-reported to extremes, fanning flames of terrorist attack hysteria from Hollywood to Fox News, to the US Government. As media attention shifted to the alleged threat, the White House decided that the Sony hack was now a 'serious national security matter'. Despite the lack of credible evidence that North Korea is behind the attack, and the FBI saying there's nothing linking North Korea to the Sony hack, many now believe it to be true, helped along with outlets like the Washington Post stating "intelligence officials" believe with "99% certainty it's gotta be North Korea.

The whole thing turned into even more of a three-ring circus Wednesday when the New York Times and other outlets announced that an 'unnamed source' at the White House said it was North Korea, followed by a named source from the White House Thursday morning saying the White House refused to confirm North Korea as the culprit.

By Thursday, the amount of respected infosec professionals, researchers, hackers and professional security researchers calling the North Korea theory out as BS is truly a news story unto itself. Sony's poor reaction to everything about this attack isn't escaping seasoned infosec industry members. One called it "beyond the realm of the stupid."



Interesting links in article.

Initially, the hackers were demanding money, is that correct?

Odd thing about the right and Cubans

Ask them whether we should grant citizenship to people who enter the uS unlawfully.

I've been waiting for one to say, "I suppose now Obama will grant amnesty to illegals from Cuba."

Um, wait....

Police Killings In Jamaica - Race Not A Factor, Figures Much Higher


http://www.jamaicaobserver.com/News/Jamaican-police-increasingly-facing-murder-charges

Since 2000, security forces have reported killing nearly 3,000 people on the island of 2.7 million. Last year, 258 people died at the hands of law enforcement. In comparison, police fatally shot 13 people last year in Chicago, a US city with the same population as Jamaica.

Almost all of those killed have been written off by police as armed criminals who died in shootouts. A tiny percentage of the cases have made it to the courts, and only one Jamaican officer has been convicted of an unlawful killing since 2006, according to a 2013 human rights report by the US State Department.
