Without Solidarity, There’s No Survival

I remember watching a film 25 years ago that made me realize just how at odds the struggles around environmentalism and racism could be. It was a short science-fiction film in which alien Space Traders came to the US and offered its leaders gold, cold fusion technology, and machines to clean the environment in exchange for all the Black people in America. Not surprisingly, after little debate, the US government agreed and Black people were rounded up by force and sent into space. It was a horrifying film—one you could feel in your gut that if something like that really happened, America’s response would have probably been exactly as the filmmaker portrayed. After all, the White majority has been sacrificing the dark-skinned minorities since before… Source link

Chinese “COVID-19” Hackers indicted after 11 year hacking spree

The text explains one of the tools from the “experimental” portion of the class, “MS06040Scanner”:  The working principle of MS06040Scanner is to first obtain the operating system type and open ports through port scanning and operating system scanning. If it is a windows2000 system, TCP 139 or TCP 445 port is opened, and the returned data packet matches the definition in the vulnerability library. It means that the host may have MS06040 vulnerabilities, we can use MS06040 exploit programs to carry out remote overflow attacks on it The second slide demonstrates the “X-Scan” tool which would be used to find vulnerabilities allowing data exfiltration.

Editorial: Slaying the yellow dragon | Editorials

For citrus growers around the world, huanglongbing represents a deadly threat. The disease, also called citrus greening disease or yellow dragon disease, originated in China and has spread to many citrus-growing regions. With the tiny citrus psyllid as a vector, HLB spreads rapidly through a grove, and the impact is profound: the infected trees die and the fruit is bitter, acidic, abnormally green and worthless. In Florida, where HLB first appeared in the U.S., citrus production is down 74% in the past 15 years and the cost of production has doubled, according to USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. HLB has invaded much of Asia and Africa. In… Source link

A week after July 2020 Patch Tuesday, Adobe has released out-of-band security updates to fix thirteen vulnerabilities – twelve of which critical – in Adobe Photoshop, Bridge, Prelude, and Reader Mobile.

Chinese Hackers Charged in Decade-Long Crime and Spying Spree

Li Xiaoyu had a problem. At some point in his decade-long hacking spree with former college classmate Dong Jiazhi, as alleged in a recent Justice Department indictment, the Chinese national found himself unable to break into the mail server of a Burmese human rights group. The usual methods apparently hadn’t worked. For Li, the solution came from having a friend in high places: An officer with China’s Ministry of State Security handed him zero-day malware—unknown to security vendors, and so harder to defend against—to help finish off the job. Other countries have long blurred the lines between criminal and state-sponsored hacking, particularly Russia, Iran, and North Korea. But in a detailed indictment unsealed by the Department of Justice Tuesday, the United States has for the… Source link
