    Yeah I have no idea why this is on the front page. I'm honestly lost as to how this is funny.

    [–] Samsung Galaxy Fold passed the final test: sources __PETTYOFFICER117__ 20 points ago in Android

    lol

    "Only" 6... 10+% rate of failure within DAYS of having a device is INSANE.

    Wait.... Is this actually a new movie? This looks like some weird-ass 90s movie.

    I worked at an Amazon warehouse. The conveyor belts there also fuck shit up. As do the employees pulling shit off of shelves, who are all being payed shit and working in a non-climate-controlled warehouse and required to pick an insane number of items per hour and thus don't give a flying fuck about packages.

    [–] BT fake their speed tests so that you don't change internet service provider, I'm getting 6.8% the speed I was promised but they say I'm getting 122% the speed. __PETTYOFFICER117__ 1 points ago in assholedesign

    Give them a call. I believe any standard DOCSIS modem (find out what version of DOCSIS they're operating on, then pick a modem accordingly) should work. And the best router really depends on your home setup. Multi-AP or mesh routers are now commonplace for consumer-level stuff, and can be very helpful for covering larger homes... Otherwise I've had good experiences (again, consumer-level stuff) with TP-Link. As far as coverage and speed they always seem to do very well for the price.

    I mean maybe not publicly but uh... Considering this has been done by random people, I don't doubt militaries already have prototypes if not having actually used some already.

    I've worked in IT and related jobs for years. The first thing I ask someone when they complain about internet speeds is whether they're wired, and if they're not, what kind of router/AP they're using.

    The router your ISP provided is shit in most cases. Buy your own modem and router. You'll make it back after a year or two, and you'll get better speeds and more control over your network.

    And she definitely looks better than anyone getting on them in this thread.

    Was it strange - would you say it was almost like seeing a photo of yourself? I feel like that would be really strange seeing a picture of someone that looks so much like me but isn't.

    [–] ‘Agent Smith’ malware has replaced Android apps’ code on 25 million devices __PETTYOFFICER117__ 2 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago) in Android

    Those are all media player exploits

    Yes. That's what malware does. Exploits software. Every exploit ever attacks vulnerabilities in other pieces of software. Dumbass.

    One of the most famous pieces of malware ever, Stuxnet, was specifically targeted at a single piece of software for a single system, despite residing on a massive number of computers worldwide.

    And assuming what you said about your cousin is true, that's your cousin. I'm sure he'd completely agree with me.

    I actually have my SEC+ certification and years of experience in IT... So what are your credentials? Or do you just ride on your cousin's coattails for everything?

    The dude was already unresponsive to others asking the polite way. Regardless, I was being blunt, but not tryna be rude. I need to be told I'm wrong sometimes, and I've learned a lot from being told I'm wrong on Reddit.

    Part of where I got a lot of my cyber security knowledge is just reading through posts on /r/sysadmin.

    [–] ‘Agent Smith’ malware has replaced Android apps’ code on 25 million devices __PETTYOFFICER117__ 2 points ago in Android

    That's a video file exploiting a vulnerability in a piece of software. All exploits take advantage of vulnerabilities in other software.

    In this case the video file can cause a buffer overflow, allowing it to then run code outside of VLC, and like the other user was saying, at that point attempting to escalate privilege to the point of admin/root.

    [–] Even the fucking Ink has DRM these days. Shit's out of control. __PETTYOFFICER117__ 21 points ago in Piracy

    Second this but with the equivalent Dell model (E310DW). Picked one up off a FB buy/sell page for $30. Starter toner just ran out after almost a year, went to buy refills and realized it was $10 for generic toner. Blew my mind.

    avi/second source, mkv/second source, mp4/second source

    you can't really get malware from pirated movies

    This was your original comment. A .mkv can have an exploit (exploits can use more than just .exe - .dll, .bat, .ps1, .jar, .dmg, etc.) embedded within it. A pirated movie could have an exploit packed within the file, therefore appearing as a normal file to the target.

    Stop misleading other people because you wanna be right and appear smarter than you are. You're wrong. Accept it, learn some, and move on. Stop spreading misinformation.

    EDIT: added more sources

    So based on your comment, I'm going to assume that you have no actual cyber security training/knowledge and are just talking out of your ass... Because if you'd had training you would know that if it runs on a computer chip (of any kind), it can be exploited.
