False Sense of Security

There is No Real Security and your feelings of confidence and safety should go out the window with what I am about to say.

–> the Current TECH out there IS NOT SAFE and NEVER WILL BE! <–

script kiddieWe are in the age where kids are growing up with a computer and phone in their hand. Don’t even look up anymore when walking. They just keep their face down onto the screen keeping up-to-date with what their social network is doing.

Its not like when we were younger and our parents had no Idea what a computer was.

Data Security

hacker tools

There are kids talking to other kids in school and rushing home to get on the computer to network, play games, and horde loads of crap playing hacker.

The tools are just out there if you know where to look for them and this is where the problem lies and why you really need to think about your Data-Security.

 

Intel Vulnerabilities
Meltdown and Spectre

intel hack
With a few scripts of code being modified on a daily basis now by script kiddies there will be variants of these attacks popping up for a while.

The attacks allow a hacker to read memory at the kernel levelย  and the functions of apps on a computer.

Passwords, photos, documents anything you consider private-data every phone, computer, tablet, and IOT Device.

Anything that has a internet connection with a intel based chipset is now vulnerable and can be accessed by the attacker.

What can be done about it?

If you know a IT consultant or Tech ask them about intrusion detection with Honey Pots for your network.

You usually don’t find out your compromised because of the deletion of logs and tools used by the attacker to cover their tracks but you can always find out if the attacker is on the network with an IDS(Intrusion Detection System).

An attacker usually gains access through an email attachment or vulnerability with the system or networked device due to lack of software patching. Why its very important you stay up to date.Anonymous Time

This is why you need a Tech to monitor your network and keep it updated.

Don’t get caught with your pants down hire some one.

 

Geeking out with Bots and IRC

I remember jumping on IRC with a program called mIRC, my windows98 getting attacked by script kiddies doing Denial of Service Attacks, and getting my computer kicked off my 56k internet connection.

I lost count of how many times I would need to reinstall windows because of these IRC Gangstas and their bots.

Suffering from a bit of nostalgia I decided to use my 5 year old’s Pi Cluster to run a bot and IRC daemon here at the Farm to see if I can use the chat rooms to monitor other app stats.

I got the wireless going far enough I could get a few of my rural neighbors in on the chat . If anyone was this techie around here.

I call her the Tesseract

Maybe I could even setup an alert station and send them weather alerts to their computers or phones logged in to the network ๐Ÿ˜€

Blast from the PAst!

I gave my bot operator status and now the empty room sits ๐Ÿ˜€ until i figure out what else to do with it ๐Ÿ˜€
