It took weeks of research for experts to reverse-engineer the code and determine that it was targeting a very specific facility and that its primary aim was to subtly sabotage that facility by altering the frequency of something at the facility.

“Perfect 10 has concluded that the only way to stop the proliferation of such websites is to go to the top, namely the payment card associations and the primary third-party processor, each of which is knowingly and effectively acting as fences for the sale of billions of dollars of stolen content,” the lawsuit reads.
The swelling population of borderless tech workers, temporary and otherwise, has nonetheless inspired the launch of numerous startups catering to a range of travelers—think WeWork’s expansion from co-working to co-living, gone global. On one end of the spectrum, working vacation spots like Surf Office, in Gran Canaria, offer private rooms and a “community vibe” to remote workers looking to hang on the beach for a few weeks without logging off. On the other, there’s the basically-illuminati-level The Caravanserai (tagline: “Roam Free”) which beginning in 2016 will offer members three communal houses with co-working spaces in Mexico City, Lisbon, and Ubud in place of a single lease.
In other words, don’t fret too much if you forget to turn off your cell phone the next time you go to fill ‘er up.

Like all sailors, Godkin tired of scrubbing the hull clean of barnacles and the other crud that quickly gathers and slows the boat down.
Shut down jihadist sites generally just go blank, as happened today with toorabora.com. But is “Page Load Error” the best solution? Yesterday, I asked this question of Aaron Weisburd, an anti-terrorist hacktivist and he responded:
But the DNCC may be hoping to tap into a broader consumer trend. When political campaigns first started to us social media, they largely relied on text-heavy platforms like Twitter, says Democratic National Committee chief innovation officer Andrew Binns. But the fast-moving flow of information on such platforms can be much more difficult to follow than a straightforward visual feed—something the DNCC appears to recognize. “It’s how people engage with news-making these days,” says Binns. What’s more, he says, visual platforms tend to skew younger, which could help the DNCC reach a broader audience, including people even outside of the Dems’ convention hall.
Happy Ivy advertises a website on the $400 bus he calls home. Aboutusnow.com is a political-advocacy site for the homeless, but has also been used to host an internet TV show.

These Twitter copies are showing up on Twitter’s radar, says Jack Dorsey, the company’s CEO. “We’ve definitely been watching them,” he says.
By embedding URLs in hundreds of blog comments, spammers apparently think they can trick search engines – particularly Google – into believing that the blog community is abuzz with news of the latest cheap Viagra website. Since Google treats links as a measure of popularity, the thinking goes, a network of blog links pointing at the spammer’s site will give it preferential placement in search-engine rankings.
Kelly Knox is a little stir crazy after back-to-back colds made their way through her family and kept them at home for two weeks. Her book club meeting this weekend is a good chance to get out of the house!
It’s easy to envision Popcorn helping filmmakers with their productions as well as creating communities for films after their release. At least one documentary project, One Millionth Tower, has already made use of the tools, coupling Popcorn with 3-D graphics generator WebGL to create a web-ready documentary that shows what would happen if the residents of a Toronto highrise were allowed to participate in re-creating their home tower.
Shubov noted that many states authorize commercial referral service, a classification that should exempt case-matching sites from this issue.
Olson excelled at Western Michigan, graduating from the school’s honors program in three years. For most of his college career, his long-term plan was to earn a medical degree and then return to Escanaba to become a family doctor. But late in his senior year he decided that he didn’t want to spend his life sewing sutures in his provincial hometown. He instead opted to enroll in the University of Michigan’s prestigious MD-PhD program, which would prepare him to become a scientist as well as a clinician.
