Update, 6:30 p.m.: Maj. Lisa Ahaesy of the Massachusetts National Guard confirms to Danger Room that the National Guard contingent on hand for the Marathon before the explosions included two Weapons of Mass Destruction-Civil Support teams. (I’m not keen on the “WMD” catch-all term, but that’s the proper noun for the teams.) One of those teams would have been from out of state. The teams have mobile lab equipment to detect and mitigate nuclear, chemical, biological and radiological equipment, but it is not clear right now what gear was specifically on the scene.
Since 2002, Samsung Electronics has been the largest supplier of memory chips, called DRAMs and NANDs.

Their Twitter feed, @alemarahweb, pumps out several messages a day, keeping 993 followers up to date with often highly exaggerated reports of strikes against the “infidel forces” and the “Karzai puppet regime.” Most messages are in Pashtu, with links to news stories on the elaborate and multilingual website of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, as the Taliban’s shadow government likes to style itself.

Reardon’s first job there was leading a small team to clone Novell’s key software so it could be integrated into Windows. Still a teenager, he wasn’t used to managing, and some people reporting to him called him Doogie Howser. Yet he stood out as exceptional. “You’re exposed to lots of type of smart people at Microsoft, but Reardon would kind of rock you,” says Brad Silverberg, then head of Windows and now a VC (invested in CTRL-Labs). In 1993, Reardon’s life changed when he saw the original web browser. He created the project that became Internet Explorer, which, because of the urgency of the competition, was rushed into Windows 95 in time for launch. For a time, it was the world’s most popular browser.

A type of Trojan that keeps itself, other files, registry keys and network connections hidden from detection. It enables an attacker to have “root” access to the computer, which means it runs at the lowest level of the machine. A rootkit typically intercepts common API calls. For example, it can intercept requests to a file manager such as Explorer and cause it to keep certain files hidden from display, even reporting false file counts and sizes to the user. Rootkits came from the Unix world and started out as a set of altered utilities such as the ls command, which is used to list file names in the directory (folder).
Rootkits can also be used for what some vendors consider valid purposes. For example, if digital rights management (DRM) software is installed and kept hidden, it can control the use of licensed, copyrighted material and also prevent the user from removing the hidden enforcement program. However, such usage is no more welcomed than a rootkit that does damage or allows spyware to thrive without detection.

When a static password alone is required, security experts recommend that users combine letters and numbers and avoid easy-to-guess passwords like “1234” or a nickname.
Bezos is the world’s richest man, with a stake in Amazon valued at roughly $127 billion. In the post, titled “No thank you, Mr. Pecker,” Bezos wrote that “these communications cement AMI’s long-earned reputation for weaponizing journalistic privileges, hiding behind important protections, and ignoring the tenets and purpose of true journalism. Of course I don’t want personal photos published, but I also won’t participate in their well-known practice of blackmail, political favors, political attacks, and corruption. I prefer to stand up, roll this log over, and see what crawls out.”
