How To Add An HTML Banner


Hello readers,

In this quick tutorial we'll be talking about creating and placing banners on websites. This process is actually easy on platforms like wordpress, drupal, joomla, and other cms where you essentially upload the image and select a url to direct the picture click to. On HTML sites the process is similar but requires an image folder, and a bit of code.

University Of Michigan Creates Very Small Computer


10 times smaller than IBM's small computer

The University of Michigan has created a computer smaller than a grain of rice and it's primary applications will be medical at first. It is presumed that the next hurdle will be a tiny power source that can be sustained at scale. As it stands the device requires light to power it and any interruption causes a loss of data. It is unclear whether University of Michigan is considering other power sources but for now the device uses constant power at a micro scale. "Nano amperage," is the scale, and for comparison purposes one must note that a Milliwatts are a million times more energy than this device is using.

Malware Found In Arch Linux


3 or more packages in the Arch Linux user repositories were found to contain malware due to orphaned repository ownership changes, and the resulting packages in question are marked as follows. The packages themselves pose minimal risk but should be removed by anyone using Arch (or any Arch based distro) or anyone using Arch User Repo packages via apt or pacman via source change audits.

EternalChampion EternalRomance EternalSynergy Ported To All Versions Of Windows


The Shadow Brokers - A group claiming to have stolen this code from the NSA - This code was included in the April 2017 Shadow Brokers Dump which was reported by Bleeping Computers on April 14th. A security researcher has ported the exploits to work on every existing version of Windows. The full article by Bleeping Computers can be found here. 

Security researcher Sean Dillon, aka @zerosum0x0, is who ported the Microsoft Server Message Block (SMB) exploits to work on Windows versions released over the past 18 years. - CSO reporting here on the exploit vectors.

The Shadow Brokers activities are reasonably well documented, and articles like this one from The Atlantic give an overview of their general representation by small media. These ported exploits in question were not altogether as popular as Eternal Blue (Used in Wannacry and related ransomware) but as there are now open source projects on Metasploit for these vulnerabilities/exploits, I suspect we'll be hearing more about this in the near future.

VMware API Threats Explained


Enterprises often require that their IT teams have no access to data kept inside the machines they administer, a separation that is crucial for compliance, privacy and defense in depth. To this end, industries use VMWare's rich security model to separate the infrastructure domain from the guest machine domain. For example, most companies allow their IT teams to create, modify, backup and delete guest machines, but deny them guest machine operation functions such as file manipulation and console interaction. ~ By Ofri Ziv

The Future Of Bitcoin


Litecoin shot up over the last few days giving rise to the uninformed masses (many of whom were journalists) once again berating Bitcoin as something that will inevitably fail. Between articles citing that "pump and dump" is the future of bitcoin, and that it is valueless because it is based on "nothing." Fiat money has been in circulation since 1000 AD and has no intrinsic value. It's first recorded use was in ancient China, and every single US dollar is a form of Fiat money since we abandoned the gold standard in 1971. Credit cards, are literally a system of debt at interest against valueless fiat currency, and at a fixed rate against even more valueless currency, even that still seems to be going strong.

Android In Survival Mode


Hypothetical scenarios can be annoying when they aren't realistic but have you ever wondered what you would do if you only had one laptop/pc and it fried? How badly would you be setback? Many people deal with this scenario without the added pressure of having anything painfully important to do online, but some have no alternative but to try to get by at least for awhile on nothing but an android device. Lucky for them, and possibly for you, that isn't nearly as bad as you might think.
