Rosenstein Calls for Tech Firms to Work With Law Enforcement

U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein called on social media companies and technology firms Thursday to work with law enforcement to protect the public from cybercriminals.     Speaking at a symposium on online crime, Rosenstein said that "social media platforms provide unprecedented opportunities for the free exchange of ideas. But many users do not understand that the platforms allow malicious actors, including foreign government agents, to deceive them by launching vast influence operations."    He said it was up to the companies to "place security on the same footing as novelty and convenience, and design technology accordingly."     He warned that if the technology sector failed to do so, government would have to step in.     "I think the companies now do understand if they do not take it upon themselves to self-regulate — which is essentially the theme of my talk today — they will face the potential of government regulation," he said. …

With An Eye on Past Problems, Facebook Expands Local Feature

Facebook is cautiously expanding a feature that shows people local news and information, including missing-person alerts, road closures, crime reports and school announcements. Called “Today In,” the service shows people information from their towns and cities from such sources as news outlets, government entities and community groups. Facebook launched the service in January with six cities and expanded that to 25, then more. On Wednesday, “Today In” is expanding to 400 cities in the U.S. — and a few others in Australia. The move comes as Facebook tries to shake off its reputation as a hotbed for misinformation and elections-meddling and rather a place for communities and people to come together and stay informed. Here are some things to know about this effort, and why it matters: The big picture It's something users have asked for, the company says. Think of it as an evolution of a “trending” feature the company dropped earlier this year. That feature, which showed new…

Porsche Shows off New Edition of Mainstay 911 Sports Car

Porsche says its future is in electric cars but for now it is rolling out a more powerful version of its internal combustion mainstay, the sleek 911 sports car. Stuttgart-based Porsche, part of Volkswagen, is to show off the eighth version of its brand-defining model at the Los Angeles Auto Show.   The new 911 doesn't look much different than earlier editions of the car. The new one has bigger wheel housings and a slightly wider body but the same long hood, sloping roof and prominent headlights that have marked successive versions since 1963.   The company said in a news release Wednesday that the new 911 Carrera S and 4S have flat six-cylinder turbocharged engines putting out 443 horsepower, 23 horsepower more than the predecessor. The Carrera S has a top speed of 191 mph and accelerates from zero to 60 mph (96.5 kph) in 3.5 seconds.   The rear-drive 2020 Carrera S has a base price of $113,200 and the 4S all-wheel drive version starts at $120,600, not including a $1,050 d…

Seoul’s Telecom Outage Highlights Need for Redundancy in Connected World

Residents in Seoul discovered how fragile their telecommunications system was this past weekend when a fire disrupted service for millions. The government and the provider vowed to implement changes to avoid a repeat of the event, but the system failure demonstrated a need for greater redundancy and preparation for future natural and technological disasters. The fire affected customers of KT, the nation’s second largest telecommunications company. They found themselves unable to make calls, access the internet, complete ATM or credit card transactions, and watch television. Local media also reported an elderly woman died when she fell ill and her husband wasn’t able to reach emergency services during the service outage. Lee Manjong, chairman of the Korean Association for Terrorism Studies and professor of the department of Law & Police at Howon University, told VOA that while it is nearly impossible to prevent widespread system outages, certain steps can be taken to avoid cata…

Linked-list implementations of Stack, Queue and Bag from the textbook Algorithms by Robert Sedgewick and Kevin Wayne

Linked list implementation of a stack.Stack.java implements a generic stack using a linked list. To push() an item, we add it to the beginning of the list; to pop() an item, we remove it from the beginning of the list. Linked list implementation of a queue. Program Queue.java implements a generic FIFO queue using a linked list.

Choose a VPN port

Choose a VPN port If you don't want your VPN traffic to stand out either to an admin casually seeing it as they are troubleshooting something, or, more importantly, to network monitoring scripts and utilities that show admins pretty graphs of what their network is doing, choose your port accordingly.UDP Ports:If circumventing a firewall block is not neccessary, or the firewall is open on one or more of these UDP ports, UDP is recommended over TCP. There will be a substantial difference in performance all around, especially for SIP/VoIP. TCP ports should only be used if trying to stay under the radar of your local admin/ISP and/or getting out past a restrictive firewall that blocks the UDP ports.
TCP Ports:
TCP port 443 has ability to pass through nearly any firewall, but it is slower than a UDP port will be. But it is often the best choice because we many public WIFI do not allow UDP 1194. 

And you need VPN most when you are using public WIFI.

Pipe an email to a script

Piping an email to a script can be easily done with cPanel -> Forwarders tool.
To set up pipe forwarding, you can follow the steps below:

- Log in to your cPanel;

- Click on the Forwarders icon, under the Mail section;

- Click on the Add Forwarder button;

- Fill in Address to Forward and put the mail address you would like to pipe the messages from.

- Click on the Advanced options link and select Pipe to a Program. Then fill in the full path to the script which will handle the messages. Bear in mind that the path is relative to your home directory, so if you create a script/file called script.py placed inside your home/ folder you should fill in only script.py inside the Pipe to a Program field.

There are several important things you should check regarding the script which is handling the email messages:

Ensure the very first line of the script is a hashbang (also called shebang). This is a special line which identifies the file as a script.

For example, in PHP, it could look like this:

It can be used for security, legal info, company policy, etc. The /etc/issue file is a plain text file which will also accept certain escape sequences (see below) in order to insert information about the system. There is also the file issue.net which can be used when logging on remotely. To display Welcome or Warning message for SSH users before login. Use issue.net file to display a banner massages. Open the following file with the editor. vi /etc/issue.net
