techrights-newsUSA Inc.: our software and hardware back doors are for "security" and "trust", they're only weapons and malicious when OTHER nations do the same.

DaemonFCThe car was just kind of pushing it along.Apr 27 04:06
DaemonFCThe powertrain seems to be in fine shape though.Apr 27 04:07
DaemonFCIf I ever do lose the radiator, it's not going to be an OE radiator that replaces it. It'll be one of those ones from China. It's kind of hard to screw up a radiator, so there's really no reason to buy an OE one.Apr 27 04:07

DaemonFCYou learn where you need OE parts and where you really don't.Apr 27 04:08
DaemonFCAnything that really takes a lot of abuse, you have to be careful what you buy. AutoZone will sell you a belt tensioner for the Buick for $50, but it won't be a quality part.Apr 27 04:09

DaemonFCScotty Kilmer got a reader question about running over a porcupine and ending up with quills in his tire and asking if he should leave it alone or take them out, and Kilmer says leave them in until you can get to the shop and just replace the tire. "I don't know if insurance covers porcupine damage.".Apr 27 04:31
DaemonFCThey actually will if you have comprehensive, but it's probably not worth filing a claim.Apr 27 04:32
inbloomamerican cars breakdown alotApr 27 04:32
DaemonFCI mean, maybe if the tires are really expensive tires or something. Like you're a MARISOL and just got conned into paying $1,600 for four tires, and your insurance deductible is $500, you may get a $900 check if you ran over some porcupines and they poppes all of your tires.Apr 27 04:33

bnchs"Scenario: we have a php 7 web application using IIS10 via FastCGI. We did performance testing on our application and noticed a slowdown. We ruled out the database tier. We looked at the IIS server and, even under heavy load, when the app slows down dramatically, the resources are not strained... no CPU spikes no RAM spikes. Digging further we came to the conclusion that all the requests coming in are simply being queued. When some of requests take Apr 27 19:11

DaemonFCFixed a typo.Apr 27 21:24
DaemonFC"The fact that AAA lobbies against motorist rights and for unconstitutional and corrupt traffic camera schemes and ridiculously low speed limits that nobody pays attention to is like finding out your donations to Planned Parenthood are actually funding Female Genital Mutilation (and as far as I know, THAT isnโ€™t happening, but AAA is the car ownerโ€™s version of that)."Apr 27 21:26
DaemonFCschestowitz-TR, MetroMile fucked me real good on Roadside once.Apr 27 21:27
DaemonFCSo I was in Fort Wayne, Indiana which is 200 MILES from Chicago.Apr 27 21:27
DaemonFCAnd then my Crown Victoria blows a brake line. I called MetroMile for a tow. I bought the Roadside because mom kept letting our AAA lapse and I didn't want to call and find out it wasn't working.Apr 27 21:28
DaemonFCSo, I get in my MetroMile app and ask for a tow. Nothing happens. I call them, they say "Well, we sent a tow truck to your location on Wacker Drive.Apr 27 21:29
DaemonFCI say "I'm not on Wacker Drive. I'm on State Street in Fort Wayne, Indiana. How can you have something on my phone with GPS access _and_ plugged into my car with GPS access and think I'm in Chicago?".Apr 27 21:30
DaemonFCmjg59_'s San Francisco tech bubble economy.Apr 27 21:30
DaemonFCBut it qualifies as having liability coverage and my bills were averaging $20 a month because they're a questionable insurance outfit running on VC losses like everything in mjg59_-land.Apr 27 21:31
DaemonFC:)Apr 27 21:31
DaemonFCAnd if I hit anyone and they sued MetroMile, not really my problem. So their lawyer and MetroMile would get into a shit throwing contest.Apr 27 21:32
DaemonFCBut now that I have a nice car, I'm using an established insurance company.Apr 27 21:32
DaemonFCWhen you get "full coverage", MetroMile really isn't good on price anymore.Apr 27 21:32
DaemonFCAnd you may end up filing a claim for yourself.... So you may as well take your business to a reputable firm.Apr 27 21:32
DaemonFCInstead of going "$20 a month and if I hit anything, not my circus not my monkeys.".Apr 27 21:33
DaemonFCI mean, other than being in CLUE, but that'll happen regardless of who you caused the loss to.Apr 27 21:33
schestowitz-TRDaemonFC: can you proofread with me?Apr 27 21:34

DaemonFCLocal Privilege Escalations are bugs, yes, but they are of low concern (and do get fixed). Anyone with direct physical access to a computer can elevate their privileges eventually. And on Windows there's a ton of them which sometimes even bypass the TPM and Bitlocker. There was one in the print spooler, for example, last summer. But it happens all the time on Windows and you don't even see it much in "the news".Apr 27 21:41
DaemonFCAny user on the machine could become SYSTEM and read your files, even if they were "protected". So that's Windows for you.Apr 27 21:41
bnchsin GNU/Linux, you would have to boot to another OS to get rootApr 27 21:42
DaemonFCBecoming SYSTEM is an even bigger disaster than becoming ADMINISTRATOR, because in Windows, this means that you're...well, part of the system. You can even patch and hook into things that are "secured" and off limits to ADMINISTRATOR.Apr 27 21:42
DaemonFCStuff that normally requires digital signing no longer requires digital signing.Apr 27 21:43
DaemonFCSo at this point, rootkit? Sure.Apr 27 21:43
DaemonFCAnd all it takes is someone running as a Guest or as a user with no administrator hat to run a file that knows where the vulnerabilities are.Apr 27 21:43
DaemonFCMicrosoft was in the news (their news) recently for raising the bug bounty. It's still less than Google's, and way less than what those things are worth to nation state attackers, terrorists, and ransomware outfits.Apr 27 21:45

DaemonFCBy a factor of $10,000:$1 sometimes.Apr 27 21:45
MinceRit's still wasted money from their perspectiveApr 27 21:45
MinceRthat could be better spent on corruption, ads and lawyersApr 27 21:46
DaemonFCEven if you get $40,000 out of Microsoft's bug bounty system somehow, the ransomware gangs can just explout it and make $20 million or more on one hit.Apr 27 21:46
DaemonFCSo they'll pay better each time and it's simply up to the conscience of whoever found the problem in Windows as to what they want to do with it at that point.Apr 27 21:46
DaemonFCSo the bug bounties are a ruse, a smoke screen, and the illusion of responsibility. In Linux, people find and fix bugs all the time. The code isn't hidden. That leads, usually, to inevitable discovery, and quick patching.Apr 27 21:47
DaemonFCPeople want to find bugs in Linux and report and fix hundreds of the same type, so they develop tools that can do things like that. Microsoft is annoyed that you reported one.Apr 27 21:48
DaemonFCEven over a decade ago before profiling tools were not as robust, not by a long shot, Coverity Scan admitted that "open source software, in general" was less than half as buggy as a comparable proprietary program.Apr 27 21:49
DaemonFCThe proprietary software is sort of like the worst case situation for your security because they have little incentive to fix it unless there's already malware out there and they just can't hide the bugs any longer.Apr 27 21:50
schestowitzaddedApr 27 21:51
DaemonFCIt's like General Motors putting defective ignition switches in millions of cars for a decade after they knew they were shutting off the car unexpectedly and killing people in accidents.Apr 27 21:51
DaemonFCGM figured it'll cost $1 a car to fix this problem, then come all of the recalls, and we'll just grind them down with stall tactics and lawyers and stuff if they ever find out, and the settlement will still cost less.Apr 27 21:51

DaemonFCThey're expensive because of a lot of factors. That mechanic is a skilled laborer. Car prices are horrible, so the skill is in demand, and the demand exceeds the supply. There's overhead to running the shop. The shop has to fix problems with their work, for free, if one arises while it's covered under the parts and labor warranty. If you get out on the road and their job was substandard, they can be sued, so they have to carry liability Apr 27 22:00
DaemonFCinsurance that covers their legal defense and damages and the more it happens the more the insurance costs.Apr 27 22:00
DaemonFCYes, you can go get a part for $164 at AutoZone. It won't be a good part, but you can get that part. For $250 you get the part that's OEM, and it meets standards and will last a lot longer. But where they "get you" is labor hours, because they're skilled, they have overhead, and they are liable for what the repair does later on after they sell you the service.Apr 27 22:01
activelowDaemonFC: local privilege escalations are very dangerous in conjunction with a remote-execution vulnerability of various typesApr 27 22:01
DaemonFCSo the job might suddenly cost $600-700, because that guy knows how to do something you don't, uses quality parts, and gets to eat the consequences if something bad happens and you get a lawyer.Apr 27 22:01
