asciilifeform: 'As KeRanger encrypts each file (i.e. Test.docx) starts by creating an encrypted version that uses the .encrypted extension (i.e. Test.docx.encrypted.) To encrypt each file, KeRanger starts by generating a random number (RN) and encrypts the RN with the RSA key retrieved from the C2 server using the RSA algorithm. It then ....' << L0l!1111
mircea_popescu: basically, i've by now distilled the unifying, common principle of all our disagreements to date. it is as follows :
mircea_popescu: you use engineering valuator, which defaults to 0 and respectively maxint in certain edge cases. this comes into conflict with known floors and ceilings established through political, generally, but occasionally economical valuations.
asciilifeform: iirc i once did explain that my mental model of the enemy is myself with a negative sign.
asciilifeform: and i see this as proper, because scheming against a ~stupid~ enemy is largely a waste of time, because how to know ~exactly how stupid~ he is ?
asciilifeform: re the microcode thing, i can picture mircea_popescu going on a bank heist, and, coming up against a massive safe, 'let's not bother with the dynamite, fellas, this thing surely is full of used condoms'
asciilifeform: the intel turds are ciphered and signed for a reason.
mircea_popescu: fox wakes up to the sound of peasant driving very heavy cart full of fishes from the lake. climbs in quietly, and while on its back pushes fishes off the cart with feet. then collects it up and goes home.
mircea_popescu: on way home, bear, who at the time had splendid tail, nicer than fox', asks where she got all the fishes.
mircea_popescu: fox explains that you go to lake, put tail in water, pull out full of fishes.
punkman: "The armour is a composite sandwich, with boron carbide on the front face (a hard ceramic), followed by the metal foam, and either aluminium or kevlar on the rear face. The metal foam is made of 2mm-diameter hollow steel spheres in a stainless steel matrix." sounds expensive
asciilifeform: jurov: ty for summary, now i can snore again, i never did and never will give a flying fuck re game consoles
asciilifeform: srsly the original drm chumpers, buying, believe, ~whole computer~ built solely to make copying the gamez harder!
asciilifeform: admittedly i find some of he '80s-'90s game machines interesting from a systems perspective, they had minimalistic iron and ran 'os-less' long into the era when x86 languished under microshit
BingoBoingo: <jurov> they explicitly point out it's overcomplicated and has thus big attack surface. so, no sane walletotron that way. << I really don't mean keeping much in the way of hardware. Just a plastic case that arouses a wildly different kind of suspicion.
mircea_popescu: jurov> and it might actually bolster up creating good tmsr jargon << this is actually not a bad idea. something like "every word that appears exaclty once before shall be linked to that instance. every word that appears only in linked references produced by the foregoing gets linked to the previous instance."
mircea_popescu: on the theory that by now most common words appear more than once in the half gb log or w/e it is.
asciilifeform: i suspect that almost all cases will be misspellings
mircea_popescu: might need a little manual adding/substracting because obv some keywords also appear more than once, and in the future there may be false positives, but in general...
phf: i have a reverse osmosis machine that i carry from apartment to apartment, i then drill holes in granite countertops and such. still waiting for somebody to deduct the holes out of my security deposit..
mircea_popescu: and ftr, just in case the kratos = power mind is strong and the verse reads "o noobs, fight shield to shield and never yield [to the enemy]", it is not. it is mide fygis aischris archete mide fovou, ""o noobs, fight shield to shield and never yield [to panic and a coward's flight]
phf: asciilifeform: in a vaguely related note the way i've been reading is to click on the entry that i read last (whether it's last line or wherever in the logs) and then do refresh, which extends the log to new state, but keeps my context, something worth trying
asciilifeform: generally i don't even ~use~ the www logz when on an actual computer
asciilifeform: (why? when i have the whole thing scrolling into eternity)
phf: asciilifeform: yeah, on phone, you click on nick to get a link for entry
mircea_popescu: i wonder how many peeps haven't ever loaded teh logs on a phone.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: prolly most? my understanding is that 'pNohe' is a usaschwitz/workingclass thing
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform> ~as if~ the most damaging thing to be lifted by attacker were picture of your face or arse ! << this is the case for about half the humans i physically interact with. think about that.
asciilifeform: 133337 d000dz on dirigibles are never far from their cockpit, dun need no stinking pocket comp
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: wai wut, weren't you the one with 'woman isn't even a woman unless her arse is posted on www'
asciilifeform: 'I created a proof of concept of this attack. This isn't enough to launch a real attack, because an attacker only has 16 bytes of DOS assembler code, which is very little. For a real attack ... ' << l0l! fella apparently doesn't know that microshit PE format has a (i shit thee not) ~dedicated field~ for 'load exe from url and execute'
ben_vulpes: simply a radical departure from surface-level form!

ben_vulpes: another footnote to asciilifeform's trope about how little software is written off-the-clock

mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes heh yeah she put it in there actually. pretty cool.
