Банк Barclays обсуждает внедрение Bitcoin с британскими регуляторами   

Крупнейший британский финансовый конгломерат Barclays ведет переговоры с регуляторами и финтех-компаниями о криптовалютах Об этом сообщил Ашок Васвани, генеральный директор Barclays, на финтех-конференции Money 20/20 в Копенгагене. Он не раскрыл содержание беседы с представителями британского Управления по финансовому регулированию (FCA), но заявил, что речь идет о том, как «ввести криптовалюты в игру» и сделать их […]

First Nicolas don't share your address publicly! Very dangerous! These gentlemen work hard to maximize your profit! So, in my experience using byteball tied to my bitcoin wallet has made life a little easier! With byteball, you can make conditional payments. Let's say you and a friend bet on a football game, you bet .001 btc on the Vikings, should they win or lose you don't have to remember to pay. I started using byteball in the second wave of 2017, roughly march. The reason for it was I was looking for ways to increase my portfolio, at little cost. For every time I sent a transaction totaling 1 bitcoin I would receive up to 22MB Of byteball, roughly $64. Then in consecutive waves the more bytes I held, the more my wallet would grow! For FREE! I'm planning on using the byte platform in the future, to assist me with payments from my mining pool (still in process). Which will make life a lot easier. Which is what the whole platform is aimed to do, make life easier without sacrificing privacy. In essence only reason why your associating your bitcoin address is because 1. It's authenticating you/your address. The amount shown to deposit will remain on hold via byteball until its satisfied. 2. Bitcoin blocks are currently weighted in KB/MB (soon). 3. When both addresses are signed it's easier use transition bot to purchase bytes. It's made easy for you. Let me know if you need help. This is no scam!!

I'm not sure that selling the Byteballs you get is a good advice. Have a look at the whitepaper, that's the most innovative crypto we've seen for a while and it's not a project anymore, it's an existing crypto that works well. It could become mainstream next years.

Then perhaps I didn't understand what you meant when you said "Why will I trade valuable money for a money that is not valuable on the grounds of getting the not valuable one when it splits." - where did you see that it talks about trading your own money in the article?

Hi Jerry, sorry about the confusion on this issue. I was mistaken. From doing the process, I thought that fractional amounts don’t count… However, I double-checked this with the Byteball terms and it turns out they DO. So Bitcoin amounts to the right of the decimal WILL count towards the number of bytes and blackbytes you receive in the drop.
          Comment on How to Use Your Bitcoin Wallet to Get Free Coins by Steven Hay   
Hi Rajesh, The way it works is it'll automatically send if your signed addresses still contain bitcoins. So if you only received bitcoins during a month and didn't spend any, you won't have to do anything and the new bitcoins will be counted. If you spent bitcoins however, then your wallet will probably contain some new change addresses which you'll have to sign for. Using the site I linked to check your expected balance should help you determine the situation. Also, the Transition Bot message log will list which of your addresses are linked for the drop.

          Comment on How to Use Your Bitcoin Wallet to Get Free Coins by Steven Hay   
Hi Nicolas, using the signing method there's absolutely no need to send any bitcoins. If in the first step you give the Transition Bot your Byteball address, it will say the following: "Got it, your Byteball address is G... Now please pay 0.001032 BTC to 1...w from a wallet where you control the private keys (no exchange wallets, no Coinbase, no Xapo, etc). By paying you will prove ownership of your Bitcoin address we receive the payment from. Don't worry if your Bitcoin wallet doesn't allow you to select the address to pay from, I'll let you know your Bitcoin address as soon as we receive the payment. Now waiting for your payment. Alternatively, you can prove ownership of your Bitcoin address by signing your Byteball address G... if your Bitcoin wallet has "Sign message" function. In this case, let me know your Bitcoin address first" Just ignore the first paragraph. You *can* send it bitcoins to prove ownership of an address but that's not the recommended method. The second paragraph is the method used in this tutorial and it's a lot better - why pay if you don't have to? The message you quoted, well, I have no idea where that came from. Any chance you could take a screenshot?

          RESUMEN DE NOTICIAS DEL MUNDO........Seeking Alpha   
La segunda etapa de las pruebas de resistencia bancarias anuales de la Fed se dará a conocer hoy. Los resultados del CCAR determinarán si las 34 instituciones financieras estadounidenses más grandes pueden seguir adelante con sus planes de distribución de capital, incluyendo mayores dividendos o recompras de acciones. ¡Manténganse al tanto! Los accionistas del banco y los inversionistas generales estarán observando atentamente, ya que los resultados es probable que mueva el mercado.

El euro ha alcanzado un nuevo máximo de 2017 de $ 1,1369, ya que los mercados digerieron los recientes comentarios de Mario Draghi. El banco central podría "ajustar" su política en respuesta a "mejorar las condiciones económicas", declaró en un evento en Sintra, Portugal. Mientras tanto, Janet Yellen dijo ayer que no esperaba otra crisis financiera en "nuestras vidas" y advirtió contra cualquier relajación de las reformas financieras.

¿Un golpe a la agenda de Trump? Los mercados bursátiles estadounidenses se vendieron el martes después de que los líderes republicanos pospusieran una votación en el Senado sobre la reforma de la salud hasta después del receso del 4 de julio. El líder republicano del Senado, Mitch McConnell, dijo que hay una "muy buena oportunidad" de que el proyecto de ley sea finalmente aprobado a pesar de la demora y un número de legisladores republicanos expresando sus reservas.

Lo llamó "La Red de Engima". Hace seis semanas, David Webb, un inversionista activista y ex director de la bolsa de Hong Kong, emitió un informe sobre "50 acciones que no son propias". Ayer, la mayoría de las acciones que nombró abruptamente se desplomaron, señalando problemas crónicos de regulación sobre las acciones de pequeña capitalización en el centro financiero asiático. Hang Seng tomó otra pierna hacia abajo durante la noche, cayendo un 0.6% a 25.684.

El presidente Trump está cada vez más frustrado con China por su inacción sobre Corea del Norte y asuntos comerciales bilaterales y ahora está considerando posibles acciones comerciales contra Pekín, dijeron a Reuters tres altos funcionarios del gobierno. Está estudiando una gama de opciones, incluyendo los aranceles sobre las importaciones de acero. Las noticias llegan cuando los negociadores japoneses y de la UE que se reúnen en Tokio presionan con un acuerdo de libre comercio que tiene como objetivo contrarrestar el proteccionismo estadounidense.

Bahrein ha acusado a Doha de una "escalada militar" en la crisis que ha afectado a la región, advirtiendo que habría consecuencias después de que Turquía desplegara tropas adicionales en su base en Qatar. Varios estados árabes han cortado las relaciones diplomáticas con la nación, así como los vínculos comerciales y de viajes, en la más grave crisis interna desde la formación del Consejo de Cooperación del Golfo.

Las tensiones son altas en Venezuela cuando un helicóptero de la policía disparó 15 disparos al Ministerio del Interior durante la noche y dejó caer cuatro granadas en la Corte Suprema, sin embargo, no hubo informes de lesiones. Se adelanta a la votación del presidente Maduro el 30 de julio para un super cuerpo especial llamado Asamblea Constituyente, que podría reescribir la carta nacional y reemplazar a otras instituciones como el Congreso controlado por la oposición.

Un comité del Senado brasileño revisará hoy un proyecto de ley que desaceleraría la ley laboral mazelike del país, que ha sido un gran disuasivo para la inversión. Los mercados se han reunido a medida que avanzaban a través de la Cámara Baja a principios de este año, pero nuevas acusaciones de corrupción contra el principal partidario de la propuesta, el presidente Temer, han aumentado la oposición, lo que complica su aprobación.

Los piratas informáticos han golpeado de nuevo en otro ciberataque a gran escala que apunta a algunas de las mayores corporaciones del mundo y la infraestructura gubernamental. Se trata de un malware conocido como "Petya", que bloquea las computadoras de las víctimas y les pide que paguen un rescate basado en Bitcoin de 300 dólares. La interrupción se ha extendido a Maersk (OTCPK: AMKAF), Merck (NYSE: MRK), WPP (NASDAQ: WPPGY), Reckitt Benckiser (OTCPK: RBGLY) y Rosneft (OTC: RNFTF).

Facebook ha llegado a 2B usuarios activos mensuales, lo que representa una duplicación de su base de usuarios en los últimos cinco años. Llegó a la marca de usuario 1B en octubre de 2012, el año en que se hizo público. Es el último de unos cuantos hitos métricos para Facebook (NASDAQ: FB), que celebró 250 millones de usuarios diarios de Instagram Stories la semana pasada, e Instagram alcanzó 700 millones de MAUs en abril.

Toshiba (OTCPK: TOSYY) dijo que presentaría una demanda contra Western Digital (NYSE: WDC), reclamando ¥ 120B ($ 1.07B) en daños por interferir con la venta de su división de chips de memoria. Toshiba también decidió excluir a los empleados de Western Digital -basados ​​fuera de la planta de chips de Yokkaichi- de acceder a información relacionada con la empresa conjunta de ambas compañías.

Alibaba (NYSE: BABA) está cerrando un acuerdo para adquirir la filial de software de ZTE (OTCPK: ZTCOY), dijeron fuentes a Bloomberg, citando un precio de entre 2 y 3 millones de yuanes (294 millones a 441 millones de dólares) ). Una venta también ayudará a reponer las arcas de ZTE, agotadas por una multa récord de 1,2 millones de dólares impuesta este año por el gobierno de Estados Unidos por violar las sanciones a las exportaciones de tecnología.

El Departamento de Seguridad Nacional comenzará la construcción de cuatro a ocho prototipos para un muro fronterizo en el área de San Diego este verano, aunque todavía no ha elegido proveedores. El financiamiento para el muro no fue incluido en el presupuesto presentado por la Casa Blanca para el año fiscal 2018, pero el DHS ha asignado $ 20M de otros programas para pagar los prototipos. Posibles beneficiarios: ACM, CX, CXW, EXP, FLIR, FLR, GEO, GVA, KBR, MLM, NUE, STLD, SUM, TPC, TTEK, USCR, USG, VMC, WMS, X

CNN se retractó de una historia falsa que sugirió un vínculo entre un asociado de Trump y un fondo ruso tras ser amenazado con una demanda por difamación de 100 millones de dólares, según el NY Post. El drama se produjo en medio del escrutinio federal de la empresa matriz Time Warner (NYSE: TWX) en espera de compra por parte de AT & T (NYSE: T) y la creencia generalizada entre los ejecutivos de medios que Jeff Zucker no puede sobrevivir a una fusión.

Japan Tobacco (OTCPK: JAPAY) espera alcanzar el "IQOS" de Philip Morris (NYSE: PM) en el tabaco sin humo al ampliar el número de lugares públicos que permiten que su producto vaping "Ploom Tecnología Las firmas tabacaleras ven a Japón como el centro de pruebas de la industria vaping, ya que los cigarrillos electrónicos que usan líquido con nicotina no están permitidos bajo las regulaciones farmacéuticas del país.

Philips (Nyse: PHG) ha aceptado comprar Spectranetics (NASDAQ: SPNC) por 38,50 dólares por acción en efectivo, o un valor total de 2,2 millones de dólares, incluida la deuda. Spectranetics utiliza técnicas como láseres y pequeños globos cubiertos de drogas para limpiar el interior de venas y arterias que se han atascado debido a enfermedades del corazón. SPNC + 25% pre-venta.

La selección del jurado en el juicio de Martin Shkreli está programada para entrar en su tercer día, ya que la dificultad de encontrar un jurado imparcial se hace evidente en un caso que involucra a la compañía farmacéutica Retrophin (NASDAQ: RTRX). "Yo entiendo que el Sr. Shkreli, Dios lo bendiga, ha traído esta notoriedad sobre sí mismo", dijo su abogado al Juez de Distrito Kiyo Matsumoto. "Sin embargo, Shkreli tiene derecho a tener jurados que no estén sesgados".

La Junta de Comisionados de Port Canaveral tiene previsto considerar la propuesta de SpaceX (Private: SPACE) hoy en las instalaciones en expansión para almacenar sus propulsores de cohetes reutilizables, ya que aumenta el ritmo de sus lanzamientos. ¿Otro sueño de Elon Musk?

Acelerando la seguridad aeroportuaria ... American Airlines (NASDAQ: AAL) está comprando nuevos protectores de bolsas de mano 3-D que desplegará en ocho aeropuertos de Estados Unidos una vez que las máquinas sean certificadas por la TSA. Los escáneres 3-D no sólo dan a los agentes de TSA una visión más clara de los problemas potenciales, sino que las máquinas - construidas por Analogic (NASDAQ: ALOG) - están diseñadas para ir dos veces más rápido que las bolsas de mano.

La NASA ha despejado un hito significativo para revivir los viajes supersónicos de pasajeros en los Estados Unidos. Se completó una revisión preliminar del diseño de un avión, elaborado con Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) como contratista líder, que utiliza la tecnología supersónica silenciosa, Golpe "en lugar de un fuerte auge sonoro. El auge es lo que llevó a las autoridades federales a prohibir el vuelo supersónico de pasajeros por tierra en 1973.


          Le ransomware Petya demande une rançon pour libérer les données d'un PC infecté   
C'est une nouvelle menace informatique qui pèse sur les entreprises et les particuliers. Petya est un « ransomware » qui prend les données d'un PC en otage, et ne les libère qu'en payant une rançon en bitcoin.
Le ransomware Petya demande une rançon pour libérer les données d'un PC infecté
Cette rançon se monte à 300 $, à régler avec la fameuse devise cryptée. Cette cyberattaque a d'abord frappé la Russie et l'Ukraine, avant de s'étendre au reste du monde, tout particulièrement en Europe et en Amérique du Nord. Plusieurs grandes entreprises, comme Saint-Gobain en France, le géant pétrolier Rosneft en Russie ou le groupe de publicité anglais WPP Group ont été touchés à plus ou moins grande échelle.

Pour ce qui concerne la France, une enquête a été ouverte tandis que les autorités appellent à la plus grande prudence — et s'il le faut, à isoler du réseau  les PC qui pourraient être infectés. Elles conseillent aussi de ne rien payer car les pirates pourraient ne pas donner la clé qui déverrouillerait les données. C'est une fois encore les ordinateurs sous Windows, et en particulier les plus anciens encore en fonctionnement, qui sont visés. Bien souvent, les utilisateurs de ces PC n'appliquent pas ou plus les mises à jour de sécurité, laissant les machines sans défense face à ce type de menaces.

Il y a quelques semaines, c'est un autre de ces « rançongiciels » qui faisaient parler de lui : WannaCry. Là aussi il fallait payer une rançon pour récupérer les données de son disque dur. Un développeur anglais avait alors pu stopper nette la propagation de ce virus. Petya, qui exploite les mêmes failles que son prédécesseur, semble lui bien plus virulent.

          A new ransomware is sweeping the globe, but there's a vaccine   
TwitterFacebook

It's a familiar story: You boot up your computer only to find a mysterious message saying your files are encrypted. You soon realize that your data is likely gone for good — even if you fork over a cryptocurrency ransom payment. 

But this time around, as a new and virulent form of ransomware dubbed NotPetya sweeps the globe, it doesn't have to be this way. 

Because this time around, there's a vaccine. 

What is NotPetya?

The first symptoms of the attack appeared on June 27 in Ukraine, with the National Bank of Ukraine and the Kiev International Airport both hit hard. Even Chernobyl's radiation monitoring system has reportedly been affected. But NotPetya, which targets the Windows operating system, didn't stay thereMicrosoft has confirmed that computers in 64 additional countries have been infected.  Read more...

          Bitcoin Price Analysis: Double Bottom Reversal Chases Out the Bears   
Bitcoin Price Analysis

In our previous BTC-USD analysis, there was a fear of a massive Head and Shoulders pattern that had very low price projections for the entire crypto market. In a turn of events, when BTC-USD made its test of the Head and Shoulders neckline, it actually responded in a market reversal.

BTCUSD HS Rejection.png

Figure 1: BTC-USD, 6-hr Candles, GDAX, Head and Shoulders Rejection

Yesterday, the crypto market took a turn upward as the market leader made a Double Bottom Reversal pattern that sent a market-wide bear run into an immediate bull run. As the BTC-USD market made an attempt to test the boundaries of the lower prices of the bear run, volume began to pick up and sent us into a market reversal. How does one spot this pattern and where are we headed in the next few days?

BTCUSD Double Bottom.png

Figure 2: BTC-USD, 30-min. Candles, GDAX

Characteristics of a Double Bottom Reversal pattern include the following:

  1. A descending trendline within an established bear trend (shown in white)

  2. An initial bottom that temporarily reverses before retesting the established low (basically forming a “W” pattern)

  3. After a test of the previously established low, the test is rejected

    1. It is important to note that in order to confirm the reversal pattern, typically you want to see consistent increased volume at the lower values (shown in dark pink)

  4. After the low is rejected a second time, it continues upward and breaks the descending trendline established in step 1 (shown in yellow)

  5. After breaking the descending trendline, the price then forms a “neckline” with the rest of the pattern (shown in light pink)

  6. From there, to confirm the trend reversal, we would want to see a break of the neckline followed by a retest of the neckline (shown in light blue)

All the above characteristics are very strong indicators of a complete bear market reversal into a bull market. As mentioned in the previous BTC-USD analysis, the bear run would continue the trend downward until significant volume picked up. In our case, the volume picked up very strongly and made a complete market reversal. Much like BTC-USD, this pattern is seen throughout several major players in the crypto market: ETH-USD, LTC-USD, ETH-BTC, etc.

It is unclear where the top of the bull run will lead us, but what is clear is that volume has dramatically picked up, indicating market interest in the higher prices. Until the volume begins to die down, the price will continue to push higher.

Summary:
  1. Head and Shoulders pattern was strongly rejected in the form of a Double Bottom Reversal

  2. Bearish trend has ended in a strong bull trend

          Thoughts on the NotPetya Ransomware Attack    

Worms, malicious computer programs that spread from computer to computer throughout the network—are perhaps the most devastating delivery mechanism for an electronic attack.  Able to spread throughout an entire institution (or even across the entire planet) in a matter of minutes, they represent the most effective way for a bad actor to deliver a malicious payload to as many computers as possible.  A worm can do its damage faster than humans can react.

The most recent ransomware attack, which spread across Europe, the United States, and Asia yesterday, represents a chilling evolution in the worm-as-weapon. This is the second ransomware attack in two months, following the WannaCry attack that spread across the globe in May. Beginning in Ukraine, this new worm shut down much of the Ukrainian government, the Danish shipping conglomerate Maersk, and others. And there is a significant possibility that this wasn’t an attempt for ransom but a sophisticated attack launched against Ukrainian interests.

The worm has sometimes been referred to as Petya, based on the ransomware module used in the attack, but is really best described as NotPetya, since the Petya ransomware is simply a small component of a larger attack. This is a very sophisticated worm, which doesn’t just use one mechanism for spreading, but combines three separate techniques.  The first, using NSA tools released by ShadowBrokers, is similar to how WannaCry operated.  But the other two mechanisms are more pernicious, leveraging Windows network administration and privileges to spread.  So if NotPetya found itself running in a privileged account on a typical workstation, it could rapidly spread to other machines in the infected network.  One observer reported that it could compromise 5000 machines in ten minutes.

Here’s how it works. Although self-spreading, NotPetya does not generally spread outside of a single corporate network: it pretty much only bridges networks when computers move between them.  So the attackers responsible used another clever way in.  Rather than hacking the target networks, the attackers compromised the update service of MeDoc, a Ukrainian program used for accounting and tax purposes, with tight integration into the Ukrainian business tax workflow.  (Imagine the business equivalent of Quicken/TurboTax in the U.S.)  Most businesses that have to pay Ukrainian taxes will be running a copy somewhere in their corporate network.  By replacing the normal update with an installer for the NotPetya worm, every time a copy of the MeDoc program checked for updates (a process that happens automatically) the computer would become infected with NotPetya.  After establishing this beachhead, NotPetya could then spread throughout a corporate network.

The leveraging of privileges and administration tools is devastating.  Even an institution which is 100 percent patched and running the latest Windows 10 operating system could become completely infected if NotPetya started running on the wrong computer.  We don’t know which fraction of infections were due to a failure to patch and which fraction were due to the worm abusing privileges, but I would suspect the latter was actually more important for its rapid and effective spread.

This solid design suggests not just good development but good testing.  Building a worm is not hard per se: it’s simply a matter of coupling a remote exploit to a program that both searches for vulnerable systems and, after exploitation, copies itself onto the new victim. But it takes significant effort to make sure that a worm works reliably, especially on systems as diverse as Windows.  Unlike normal software development, the programmer can’t just simply run the program, find a bug, fix it, and repeat.  Worms need to be carefully tested in isolated networks, since even a poorly engineered worm leaves the attacker’s control if it gets loose on the Internet.  Given the difficulty in testing, doing a worm right also requires programmers who don’t write many bugs.

The problem is further magnified when testing a worm with a malicious payload.  NotPetya not only spreads using multiple mechanisms, but spreads reliably and apparently without major bugs.  It also contains an overtly malicious payload that renders unusable the host computer, in ten minutes to an hour, yet doesn’t generally impede the worm’s spread.  Killing the host is always a risk for a pathogen as a dead host can’t spread a plague further.  So a malicious payload like this needs to be tuned: fast enough to limit opportunities for human response, but slow enough that it doesn’t inhibit the spread.

This speaks to a rigorous development process.  If I had been in charge of building NotPetya, I’d budget for two to three good programmers, a month’s time, and a small but diverse isolated network for testing. I’d probably also need one additional person to keep rebuilding the isolated network after each test.  In other words, it wouldn’t be something I’d do in a basement.

Yet for all the sophistication, the ransomware payload is politely described as a fecal theater piece.  Ransomware needs a mechanism to contact the operator, but rather than using Tor hidden services, the authors used just a single email address that was quickly shut down, eliminating any way to contact the bad actors or obtain decryption keys.  If a high profile ransomware operator can’t release computers in return for payment, they will find that payments cease.  Ransomware works because the bad guys (try to) keep their word.

Ransomware also needs a payment mechanism that is hard to trace, such as a per-victim Bitcoin wallet, but NotPetya uses a single Bitcoin address.  So not only can we witness that they’ve only gained roughly ten thousand dollars, the nature of Bitcoin ensures that these miscreants will have a huge difficulty even getting their paltry earnings without being traced.

Ransomware also needs to resist a cryptanalysis attack attempting to unlock the encrypted files.  Yet NotPetya uses 800b RSA, a key length small enough that it is easily in the reach of NSA cryptanalysis and possibly within the reach of an enthusiastic private group as well.

Finally, ransomware needs a useable interface.  Good ransomware will unlock the victim’s computer at a click of a button after the attacker is satisfied.  In order to offer this functionality, the ransomware needs to keep the computer running while it encrypts the victim’s data.

But this particular ransomware can’t do that. When it infects a computer, it reboots the machine and then encrypts the files, rendering the computer completely unusable until the victim either reinstalls the computer or pays the ransom.  This would make it nearly impossible to pay the ransom in practice unless you have access to another computer: how do you contact the ransomware provider when your computer is completely unusable?  And payment is not easy, as it requires the user to copy out a complex string of characters, without error, and email it to the operator.  So even if the operator’s email account worked perfectly, odds are good the ransomware operator couldn’t unlock the victim’s computer.

Failed ransomware would be acceptable if this was new technology and new ransomware.  But the attackers integrated a range of tools, including the ShadowBrokers NSA toolkit, the mimikatz tool for extracting Windows authentication tokens, and the Petya ransomware, among other pieces.  They could have just as easily selected a much better ransomware payload, one that would actually ensure they could collect their money.

The only way the Petya payload is superior to other ransomware is that it does disable the computer.  If you wanted to deploy profitable ransomware to thousands of computers this is a horrid choice. On the other hand, if you want to deploy a payload that renders thousands of computers unusable but looks like ransomware, this is perhaps the best candidate possible. There is now additional evidence that suggests it was deliberately modified to render computers unusable rather than collect ransom.

This leaves us with two likely possibilities.  Either NotPetya was written by a group of criminals who showed great sophistication in their development process, wrote an excellent worm, and screwed up horribly on the one part that matters for the criminals to gain anything.  Or the worm was written by an actor who showed great sophistication in the development process, wrote an excellent worm, and used it to launch a malicious payload targeted at both the Ukrainian government and all businesses who pay Ukrainian taxes.

In many ways, this may even be a sequel to the CrashOverride power grid attack.  CrashOverride looked like the test of a payload.  NotPetya could easily be both an attack on the Ukrainian government and those doing business in the country and a live test of a delivery system.  If so, the worm’s incidental infection of non-Ukranian targets, notably Rosneft and other Russian targets, should act as a reminder that fast self-propagating code risks a huge amount of collateral damage.

At the moment, we don’t yet know whether the worm was developed as a criminal enterprise by hackers who failed to develop a working payment system or as an intentional attack on Ukraine disguised as criminal activity.  When all this is done, I think the NSA would be well served by making their own internal assessment of whoever is behind NotPetya public.  They don’t need to disclose sources and methods but simply the conclusion: “With X confidence, we believe NotPetya was authored by Y."  Either way, we would benefit from some attribution outside this guesswork and logic.

Even if it NotPetya does turn out to have been criminal activity, we should consider the lessons it can teach us when it comes to developing defenses. With a few changes, you could easily use NotPetya as the delivery mechanism for a worm designed to black out the U.S..  And given NotPetya’s abuse of administrative privileges, this attack could very well work against operators who are religious about patching their systems.

Experts have long worried about the potential impacts of high-speed worms, but the return of the worm to prominence, whether it is for criminals looking for profit or nation-states looking to test attacks, should give us pause.

          Bitcoin là gì ? Có nên đầu tư vào bitcoin hay không ?   
Bài viết này ra đời từ khi giá Bitcoin (BTC) là $900, và hiện tại, 1 lần nữa giá Bitcoin lại nhân gấp 3 lần. Hay so sánh với thời điểm này 2 năm về trước, giá Bitcoin đã gấp 10 lần. Really ??? Cho dù bạn không tin nhưng đó là sự thật.

Cùng với sự đi lên của Bitcoin thì các sàn đa cấp, cho-nhận theo mô hình Pôn-zi (gần giống đa cấp) đi lôi kéo, dụ dỗ nhiều quá khiến cho nhiều người biết đến bitcoin hơn. Đó cũng là lý do nhiều người không thiện cảm cho lắm với đồng tiền này ! Tuy nhiên Bitcoin chỉ là 1 đồng tiền, nó không có tội trong 1 mô hình lừa đảo.

Số lượng Bitcoin trên thế giới có giới hạn (chỉ 21 triệu Bitcon), nhưng nhu cầu sử dụng nó càng ngày càng phổ biến. Bạn có thể tham khảo những dự đoán về Bitcoin từ những nguồn có uy tín sau :
  • Jim Cramer từ CNBC : Bitcoin có thể giá có giá trị 1 triệu USD
  • Giám đốc Paypal : Bitcoin có thể có giá trị 1 triệu USD/BTC trong 5-10 năm nữa
  • Nhiều chuyên gia cho rằng Bitcoin có thể có giá trị $4000 – $6000 trong 2018
  • Giá Bitcoin sẽ hơn $10.000 vào 2021 (CEO của ShapeShift dự đoán)
Thực ra mình biết đến đồng tiền này cũng được 1 thời gian rất lâu rồi. Và như 1 câu trả lời chung cho tất cả mọi người, mình viết ra bài viết này để giải thích cũng như nêu ra các quan điểm riêng của mình về đồng tiền bitcoin này.
Bitcoin là gì ? Có nên đầu tư vào bitcoin hay không ?
1. Bitcoin có phải là 1 đồng tiền ảo ?
2. Bitcoin là gì ?
3. Ví bitcoin là gì ?
4. Ưu điểm của bitcoin.
5. Nhược điểm của bitcoin.
6. Tính hợp pháp của bitcoin tại Việt Nam.
7. Thực hư về các trò lừa đảo qua bitcoin.
8. Làm sao để kiếm bitcoin
9. Bitcoin trong tương lai lên hay xuống giá ?
10. Bitcoin có bao giờ “chết” không ?
Lời kết

1. Bitcoin có phải là 1 đồng tiền ảo ?

“Blog cảm xúc có biết về tiền ảo bitcoin hay không ?”, “Bạn có nhận định như nào về tiền ảo bitcoin ?” – Mình thường xuyên gặp những câu hỏi như thế này, và mình cũng rất ngại rep, vì khi rep phải giải thích khá là dài dòng cho người khác hiểu.

Thực ra bitcoin không phải tiền ảo, mà nó là tiền thật, bạn nên gọi Bitcoin là “đồng điền điện tử” thì sẽ chính xác hơn gọi nó là “ảo”. Vì khi nói đến từ đồng tiền “ảo”, đó là loại tiền được sử dụng trong 1 cộng đồng nhất định, ví dụ bạn nạp tiền vào game thì tiền trong game sẽ gọi là tiền ảo, và nó không thể quy đổi ra được tiền thật ngoài đời, nếu có thì giá trị của nó cũng sẽ đẩy xuống thấp.

          Un análisis de datos históricos acerca de Bitcoin, Ethereum y otras 1.200 criptodivisas   

Ethereum bitcoin

Sarah Pan ha hecho un estupendo análisis del estado actual de la «fiebre del oro» de las criptodivisas en un artículo en el que ha extraído de diversas bases de datos todos los historiales disposibles y los ha cotejado con los hechos más relevantes durante los últimos años en tan complejo sector.

El texto se puede leer completo en el blog de Timescale, una herramienta SQL especialmente pensada para series históricas de datos: Analyzing Ethereum, Bitcoin, and 1200+ other Cryptocurrencies using PostgreSQL. Aunque es un tanto farragoso esto sería lo más destacable, junto con algunos otros enlaces y referencias que he encontrado por ahí:

  • La fiebre del oro es bastante palpable, con hechos como que nace más de una nueva criptodivisa casi cada día (en las llamadas ICO, initial coin offering, algo en cierto modo equivalente a las «salidas a bolsa» u OPV, ofertas públicas de venta).
  • Tan claro es el boom que efectivamente quien hubiera invertido ‑y guardado pacientemente– 100 dólares en Bitcoin hace 7 años (2010) tendría unos 5 millones de dólares a día de hoy.
  • Las criptodivisas conforman un mercado global, pero si en Bitcoin se invertía casi únicamente en dólares hasta 2014 pronto los yuanes chinos tomaron la delantera (probablemente debido a su devaluación). En 2017 el Banco Popular de China reforzó la regulación al respecto y entonces fue Japón quien pasó a liderar el volumen de transacciones, por encima tanto de China como de los Estados Unidos. (En Japón el Bitcoin se considera una «divisa legal»).
  • Una escalada similar se ha visto en Ethereum, la segunda criptodivisa por volumen que ha sufrido el mismo efecto explosivo pero en menos tiempo: en su primer año ya superaba a Bitcoin en crecimiento (530%) y el año pasado se apuntó otro 200%.

Cripto Marketcap

  • El mercado se ha transformado en cierto modo de un mundo para inversores en criptodivisas en también una oportunidad para creadores de nuevas criptodivisas. Las más de 1.200 ya existentes son un ejemplo claro, así como la semana del 25 de mayo en la que aparecieron 300 nuevas criptodivisas en menos de siete días.
  • En la larga cola de las criptodivisas [gráfico] sigue liderando Bitcoin (BTC) seguida por Ethereum (ETH) y a continuación un grupo más amplio con Litecoin (LTC), Ripple (XRP) y Ethereum Classic (ETC). Litecoin es casi idéntica a Bitcoin; algunas de las otras tienen usos específicos y ciertas mejoras y diferencias técnicas (como Ripple), pero algunas como Ethereum podrían acabar complementando o reemplazando prácticamente a Bitcoin con el paso tiempo.
  • A día de hoy es relativamente fácil comprar y vender bitcoins y también ethereum y otras criptodivisas; basta hacerlo a cambio de dólares o euros – al menos para volúmenes razonables. Digamos que tiene la misma dificultad –más o menos– que si decidieras comprar monedas de oro o acciones de Tesla, Inc.: disponer del dinero, una cuenta de banco, acudir a un mercado probablemente extranjero en el que comprar y vender, identificarse de forma fiable, hacer las transacciones, pagar comisiones, declarar los importes por aquello de los impuestos… Pero no son operaciones imposibles.
  • Bitcoin vs. Ethereum. En muchos sitios se habla de esta relación amor-odio que parte de una misma base (la tecnología blockchain) y se hace el –probablemente inapropiado– símil entre lo que sucedió con el VHS y el Betamax, o entre el VHS y los DVD… Pero a día de no está del todo claro qué podría suceder. Un buen artículo al respecto: Ethereum: The not-Bitcoin cryptocurrency en Mashable.

          Kommentar zu Vizionary/Capriocoin – Innovativer Bezahlcoin mit MLM Vergütung von moneytrade   
Capricoin konzentriert sich aktuell mehr auf seine Produktentwicklung wie auf die Börse. Da Capri nicht direkt mit Hardware gemint werden kann, sondern nur über vizionary ist auch die visibility noch geringer als beispielsweise bei Ethereum, Dash,… die einen richtigen Mining boom im Moment erleben. Ich bin vor 8 Monaten eingestiegen da mich das Konzept und Vision überzeugt hat und vorallem der Coin sofort handelbar war. Ich habe aber erst dann richtig angefangen als Vizionary wirklich Teile der Vision in Form der Capripayapp veröffentlicht hat. Ich habe zuvor zuviele Coins gesehen die sehr schöne Präsentationen und Visionen hatten, aber diese nie umgesetzt haben, daher starte ich erst wenn nicht nur versprochen sondern auch geliefert wird. Meine Downliner haben verschiedene Gründe warum sie einsteigen, zum einen sind es Händler die über Capripay eine weitere und vorallem gebührenfreie Bezahlquelle mit aufnehmen wollen, sowie die Visibility über das Vizionarynetzwerk nutzen zum anderen Kunden welche die Bezahlapp nutzen möchten bzw. auch an der zukünftigen Coinentwicklung partizipieren möchten. Dazu kommen natürlich Networker die an Provisionen interessiert sind. Hierbei ist neben der direkt/binär Provision für die meisten vor allem auch der passive Bonus aus der Capripay app interessant, da wir an jedem Einkauf/Verkauf über die App durch unserer geworbenen Nutzer mitverdienen. Capricoin hat ein reales Produkt in Form der Capripay app (and auch eine Website API), welche einerseits dem Kunden erlaubt mit Capricoins bei angeschlossenen Shops meist mit Discount/cashback einzukaufen zum anderen kann capripay von Händlern kostenlos auf ihrer Website oder offline Shop eingebunden werden. Bisher kann über über Capripay per Capricoins schon eingekauft werden, aktuell wird diese noch so erweitert, dass der Händler sofort Euros/USD vermutlich auch bald Bitcoin bekommen kann, was sehr attraktiv für die Händler ist da sie kein Wechselkursrisiko haben. Capricoin baut sein Händlernetz kontinuierlich aus und hat auch für Herbst einen Piloten mit einem sehr großen Discounter in Deutschland, sowie anderen größeren Ketten in der Pipeline was Capripay sehr schnell auch der breiten Öffentlichkeit bekannt machen wird und damit auch noch der Coinkurs steigen sollte.
          THE PAYMENTS INDUSTRY EXPLAINED: The Trends Creating New Winners And Losers In The Card-Processing Ecosystem   

bii payments ecosystemUSETHIS

This is a preview of a research report from BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service. To learn more about BI Intelligence, click here.

The way we pay is changing dramatically. For example, people are beginning to use their smartphones for every kind of formal and informal transaction — to shop at stores, buy songs online, and even split their rent.

At the heart of these changes in how we pay are thousands of companies competing and collaborating to facilitate transactions.

To understand why the payments industry has faced so much disruption in such a short time, there's just one key thing to understand: Payments is about transferring information from one party to another, and nearly every stakeholder in the industry benefits when that process runs on digital rails.

But payments is also an extremely complex industry that few fully understand.

In BI Intelligence's 2016 Payments Ecosystem report, we make it simple, explaining how it works, who the key players are, and where it's headed.

In this latest edition of the report, BI Intelligence drills even further into the industry to explain how a broad range of transactions are processed, including prepaid and store cards, as well as revealing which types of companies are in the best and worst position to capitalize on the latest industry trends.

Here are some key takeaways from the report:

  • 2016 will be a watershed year for the payments industry. Payments companies are improving security, expanding their mobile offerings, and building commerce capabilities that will give consumers a more compelling reason to make purchases using digital devices.
  • Payments is an extremely complex industry. To understand the next big digital opportunity lies, it's critical to understand how the traditional credit- and debit-processing chain works and what roles acquirers, processors, issuing banks, card networks, independent sales organizations, gateways, and software and hardware providers play.
  • Alternative technologies could disrupt the processing ecosystem. Devices ranging from refrigerators to smartwatches now feature payment capabilities, which will spur changes in consumer payment behaviors. Likewise, blockchain technology, the protocol that underlies Bitcoin, could one day change how consumer card payments are verified.

In full, the report:

  • Uncovers the key themes and trends affecting the payments industry in 2016 and beyond.
  • Gives a detailed description of the stakeholders involved in a payment transaction, along with hardware and software providers.
  • Offers diagrams and infographics explaining how card transactions are processed and which players are involved in each step.
  • Provides charts on our latest forecasts, key company growth, survey results, and more.
  • Analyzes the alternative technologies, including blockchain, which could further disrupt the ecosystem.

          The Bitcoin Bubble Will Turn Into Mania Before It Bursts   
The ongoing run up in Bitcoin and other digital currencies has most of the elements of a bubble, but it has yet to reach a cascade and turn into mania--the stage when a critical mass of investors rush to buy “hot” Bitcoins for the promise they hold -- rather than for the fundamentals they display.

          Bitcoin working for anyone yet?

Hi all,

I just upgraded to InvoicePlane 1.5.3 after the anticipated bugfix which I was hoping would get Coinbase Bitcoin payments up and running. Unfortunately, after configuring Coinbase I've run into another issue:

Payment failed. Please try again.
Scopes don't match current API version.

Does anyone have this working yet, am I doing something wrong, or is there another bug perhaps?

Thanks!

          Why are some economists sceptical about demonetisation?   
More than a fortnight since the demonetisation but the debate rages on - has this been a bold and historical move to destroy black money or a colossal misstep that has put millions of Indians in deep trouble? The government has given itself a pat on the back with the Prime Minister quoting results from what many have said is a highly biased survey through a mobile app.

But here is a compilation on some of the concerns that economists have raised.

In this article, Niranjan Rajadhyaksha, executive editor of The Mint lays out some of the main reasons why so many economists all over the world are closely watching the developments in India. Calling it a historically unprecedented monetary shock, he says -

Currency in circulation accounted for 80% of the reserve money in India on 11 November. Some 86% of this currency in circulation was in notes of Rs500 and Rs1,000. So, the withdrawn notes are around 69% of the monetary base (and not the entire base as some have written).

Rajadhyaksha remains hopeful that the move could lead to a positive change as it has forced many into a behavioural shift towards bank deposits which could in turn lead to an unexpected expansion in money supply, and perhaps provide a cushion against the reduction in the monetary base.

Vivek Dehejia, Professor of Economics at the Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, also believes that any reduction in the monetary base can be effectively countered by simply circulating more money into the market. The BBC quotes him as saying -

India now operates under a monetary policy regime known as inflation targeting. If a portion of the stock of currency in circulation, consisting of currency and demand deposits gets 'burned', metaphorically or literally, the Reserve Bank of India, the central bank, can in principle fully offset this through what economists call 'open market operations

Prabhat Patnaik , economist and professor emeritus at Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi feels that the demonetisation move has caused great inconvenience to the people and is not likely to yield the desired benefits. In this interview in The Wire he explains very simply that there is a misconception about how black money is circulated in the economy.

This move betrays a lack of understanding of capitalism in the government. Typically, what happens in capitalism in a situation like this is that there would be a new business opening up about how to change old currency notes into new ones. This is what Schumpeter called innovation – and in capitalism that is forever happening. A whole range of people would come up who will say you give us Rs 1000 and we will give you Rs 800 or 700 or whatever. Consequently, instead of curbing black business it will actually give rise to the proliferation of black business.

He goes on to say that it a tax administration which is honest and unbiased is needed to investigate leads, be it locally or in cases of foreign holdings, to recover black money.

Lawrence.H.Summers and Natasha Sarin, senior economists from Harvard also feel that the move is ill conceived. Scroll carried their views on the issue. Calling Prime Minister Modi’s announcement as a historically unprecedented move, Summers and Sarin point out demonetisation of currency which is widely used by ordinary people, overnight, violates the principles of a free society causing great suffering among innocent people.

We strongly suspect that those with the largest amount of ill-gotten gain do not hold their wealth in cash but instead have long since converted it into foreign exchange, gold, bitcoin or some other store of value. So it is petty fortunes, not the hugest and most problematic ones, which are being targeted. Without new measures to combat corruption, we doubt that this currency reform will have lasting benefits. Corruption will continue albeit with slightly different arrangements.

Although Summers has been in favour of abolishing high currency notes, he does not believe it is something to be done overnight and conclude -

We were not enthusiastic previously about the idea of withdrawing existing notes from circulation because we judged the costs to exceed the benefits. The ongoing chaos in India and the resulting loss of trust in government fortify us in this judgement.

Kenneth S. Rogoff, former head of the International Monetary Fund compares the demonetisation move to the proposals he lays out in his book The Curst of Cash. Rogoff views the motivation as the same.

the vast bulk of physical currency is held in the underground economy, fuelling tax evasion and crime of all sorts. Moreover, most of this cash is held in the form of large denomination notes such as the US $100 that are increasingly unimportant in legal, tax-compliant transactions. Ninety-five percent of Americans never hold $100s, yet for every man, woman and child there are 34 of them. Paper currency is also a key driver of illegal immigration and corruption.

However, he remains sceptical about the certainty of long term benefits, especially given the over- night phase out of frequently used currency. The last time such a sudden move was announced was during World War II in Europe. Rogoff instead advocates a gradual phase out of high value notes. He also points out -

the phase out of large notes is golden opportunity to advance financial inclusion, in the first instance by giving low income individuals access to free basic debt accounts. The government could use these accounts to make transfers, which would in turn be a major cost saving measure. But in the US, only 8% of the population is unbanked. In Colombia, the number is closer to 50% and, by some accounts; it is near 90% in India. Indeed, the 500 rupee note in India is like the $10 or $20 bill in the US and is widely used by all classes, so India’s manoeuvre is radically different than my plan

The Caravan carried this interview with senior economist Arun Kumar who has studied black money since the 1980s. Kumar says that there needs to be a distinction made between black income and black wealth and that to truly tackle the problem, black income generation must be addressed, as this is constantly in circulation, be it in the real estate market or elsewhere.

The black economy increased to 62 percent of the GDP [gross domestic product] by 2013, which is Rs 90 lakh crores [A 2014 National Institute of Public Finance and Policy report estimated that domestic black money was equal to 70 percent of the GDP—approximately 90 lakh crores].That’s why my estimate was that the black “money,” or cash component, immobilised is only 3 percent of the total black income generated this year.

On the need to curb counterfeit notes, Kumar says that only about 250 out of 1 million notes are fake according to the government’s own estimates. He says that if the government’s move was motivated by terrorists counterfeiting notes, they could very well do it again for new notes. He also agrees that investigation and prosecution, as carried out successfully in the US and UK is a better solution in dealing with black money.

My argument is that if the black economy is 62 percent of GDP that means it is systematic and systemic. It is not anecdotal. It’s not that one day you do it, the next day you don’t do it. Every act of corruption is a nexus between the corrupt politician, businessman, police and the bureaucracy or the executive. Unless you break this triad, the black-income generation will continue.

Kaushik Basu, a former economist in the World Bank and Chief Economic Adviser during the UPA regime, calls it bad economics.

The Financial Times quotes him as saying –

Ordinary salaried people, retirees and small farmers who store their legitimate incomes in cash for future durable and rainy-day purchases, will not be able to change all their money for fear of harassment and not being able to explain how they got it. This can be very disruptive, increasing the costs of small business and trade and causing a drop in aggregate demand in the economy, thereby slowing growth.

Jean Dreze, an economist who was a member of the National Advisory Council likens the move to shooting the tyres of a racing car. Although he admits that it is very difficult to predict the long term effects on the economy, Dreze believes that it is too big a gamble. In this interview in The Economic Times, he says -

The initial economic shock, already visible, can easily have ripple effects over the next few months. For instance, delayed sowing of rabi crops today could affect the harvest months from now. With employers short of cash, labourers are likely to lose jobs. It is also important to remember that macroeconomic trends depend a lot on expectations. If the initial shock creates adverse expectations, the economy’s growth trajectory could be derailed.

Program Description
The difficult ecological situation on our planet encourages humanity to look for solutions that will reduce emissions of harmful substances into the atmosphere. According to official data around the world, about 70% of emitted substances polluting the atmosphere are accounted for by cars. Today in many countries there are laws that regulate permissible amount of harmful substances in the exhaust gases of vehicles. Despite the improving situation, it was not possible to solve the problem only the limitations. That’s why there was extensive development of the ecological transport which does not pollute the environment, costs less than the normal and requires their owners a minimum of operational costs.

          Corporations, governments hit by cyberattack   

A global wave of cyberattacks that began in Russia and Ukraine on Tuesday wrought havoc on government and corporate computer systems as it spread to Western Europe and across the Atlantic.

Several multinational companies said they were targeted, including US pharmaceutical giant Merck, Russian state oil giant Rosneft, British advertising giant WPP and the French industrial group Saint-Gobain.

The first reports of trouble came from Ukrainian banks, Kiev's main airport and Rosneft, in a major incident reminiscent of the recent WannaCry virus.

Some IT experts identified the virus as “Petrwrap”, a modified version of the Petya ransomware which hit last year and demanded money from victims in exchange for the return of their data.

But global cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab said: “Our preliminary findings suggest that it is not a variant of Petya ransomware as publically reported, but a new ransomware that has not been seen before,” which it named “NotPetya”.

The cyberattack also recalled a ransomware outbreak last month which hit more than 150 countries and a total of more than 200,000 victims with the WannaCry ransomware.

'Spreading round the world'

The virus is “spreading around the world, a large number of countries are affected,” Costin Raiu, a researcher at the Moscow-based Kaspersky Lab said in a Twitter post.

In the United States, Merck was hit as was New York law firm of DLA Piper.

“We confirm our company's computer network was compromised today as part of a global hack. Other organisations have also been affected,” Merck said on Twitter.

“It seems to be done by professionals criminals, and I think money is the motivation,” said Sean Sullivan, a researcher at the Finnish cybersecurity group F-Secure.

He said that unlike the recent WannaCry attack, this “Petrwrap” attack has sophisticated elements that could make it easier to rapidly infect many more systems.

'Powerful' attack

Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman wrote on Facebook that the attacks in his country were “unprecedented” but insisted that “important systems were not affected.”

However, the radiation monitoring system at Ukraine's Chernobyl nuclear site has been taken offline after it was targeted in the attack, forcing employees to use hand-held counters to measure levels, officials said Tuesday.

The technological systems were working “as usual” at the plant that exploded in 1986, however.

The attacks started around 2:00 pm Moscow time (1100GMT) and quickly spread to 80 companies in Ukraine and Russia, said cybersecurity company Group IB.

The companies affected were hit by a type of ransomware that locks users out of the computer and demands purchase of a key to reinstate access, Group IB said.

The cryptolocker demands $300 in bitcoins and does not name the encrypting program, which makes finding a solution difficult, Group IB spokesman Evgeny Gukov said.

Ukraine's central bank said several lenders had been hit in the country, hindering operations and leading the regulator to warn other financial institutions to tighten security measures.

Banks were experiencing “difficulty in servicing customers and performing banking operations” due to the attacks, the bank said in a statement.

Rosneft said earlier that its servers suffered a “powerful” cyberattack but thanks to its backup system “the production and extraction of oil were not stopped.” The wave of cyberattacks also impacted Maersk, a global cargo shipping company; Saint-Gobain, a French company producing glass and other construction materials; and British-based WPP.

In Amsterdam, the Dutch parcel delivery company TNT, which operates in 200 countries around the world,said its systems had been affected. “We are assessing the situation and are implementing remediation steps as quickly as possible,” the company, part of FedEx, said in a statement to AFP.

Signs of sophistication

Experts also said this latest attack could heighten fears that companies may be more vulnerable to cyberattacks than suspected, potentially putting personal data at risk.

“This will undeniably affect trust in these organisations and raise questions of competency,” said Louis Rynsard, a director at the corporate communications agency SBC London.

“The long-lasting impact of a cyberattack cannot be overstated,” he said.

The fight against cyberattacks has sparked exponential growth in global protection spending, with the cyber security market estimated at $120 billion this year, more than 30 times its size just over a decade ago. But even that massive figure looks set to be dwarfed within a few years, experts said, after ransomware attacks crippled computers worldwide in the past week.


          Trading 212 Forex & Stocks   
Preview Image We live in a world where money is already represented by numbers in a computer. Just look at Bitcoin and other forms of crypto-currency. In contrast, not so long ago, one might have raised an eyebrow at the idea of trading oil that you've never seen from the comfort of your own bathtub, more so at the idea that anyone might be able to enjoy this luxury... or at least simulate it. Indeed, just like Poker apps lure you into their snare with free virtual bucks on entry, so does Trading 212 offer some ten thousand bucks in form of your local currency. However this is only to play around the app using real crowd funded data and not to screw up the market and screw yourself in the process of making a really bad decision. In essence it works like a market trading game, since you can reset your virtual balance and start over as many times as you wish. However, if you're serious about it, you can create an account and link it to your assets (not recommended unless you really know what you are doing). Trading 212 covers both the stock market and Forex (currency market). Buying and selling financial instruments (as they are called) is deceptively simple. The interface lets you buy and sell in chunks with a simple screen tap. You can use the recommended amounts or set your own. On the same screen you will see a live representation of the trends in form of a graph, but pluses and minuses are also reflected live with the buttons constantly changing color. The switches between up and down are so frequent that they reminded me of the spaceship ticket buying mini game in Anachronox, which was modeled to resemble a totally unstable stock market (btw, play Anachronox if you get the chance). Once you buy some instruments, you can set reminders to notify you when they reach a certain margin. After all, you're not buying for keeps, your playing at the market here. If reminders are not enough, you can also set orders for buying and selling. They're not recurrent though, so don't expect the app to trade for you ad infinitum. In order to ascertain your past decisions, you can review every transaction you've made. For example, You can check whether selling those 60 Coca Cola shares the other day was a good idea in regards to today's rates. Trading 212 is also connected to Tradebird. You can view the overall Tradebird feed or focus on items pertaining to a specific instrument. However, comments cannot be viewed or made unless you install the Tradebird app itself. Features Access to over 750 financial instruments Charts Price alerts and programmable orders News & analyses based on Tradebird Free game included (practice account with faux operations on real markets) Final Solution Well, to be honest I find this kind of apps to be rather unreal. Juggling with money while tapping away on a phone screen does rather make it so. Regarding Trading 212, the feeling is even stronger, as you can play without a care one moment and then plunge into a world full of consequences the next second, all while keeping the same interface and seemingly doing the same thing. I kind of miss the barter system the Reich had in the thirties. No speculation, just fair trade.
          Bitcoin Q&A: How is fungibility tied to privacy?   
Fungibility is simply that it doesn't matter where any given unit of currency came from; one unit is worth as much as any other unit. For example, it doesn't matter, upon presentation, the euro you hold was stolen two transactions ago. No one can say "I will take that euro but not that euro." This was settled as a matter of law in the 16th century. The reason we have fungibility is because otherwise the currency wouldn't work; if every time you received a euro, you had to open a database and check the provenance, currency wouldn't work. Not just because you would have to track a database that was perfect and always updated, but because no euro would be worth one euro. Every euro would be weighted by how liquid it is, whether you can use it and it will be accepted. Fungibility is understanding by law, practice, and technology that every unit is treated as indistinguishable. Bitcoin is somewhat fungible. You can trace the provenance of every coin; by custom we don't do that but we are beginning to see some companies do it, which is a problem. If accounts start being frozen because of where bitcoins came from three transactions ago, that's a problem. Fungibility is tied to privacy and anonymity. There are systems being made where you can't tell the amount being transacted, who the sender and recei... === Original video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VuI-8EwqIS8 Downloaded by http://huffduff-video.snarfed.org/ on Wed, 28 Jun 2017 04:21:36 GMT Available for 30 days after download

It is because this
          Petrwrap: Τρόμος από τις νέες κυβερνοεπιθέσεις – «Χάκαραν» τράπεζες και αεροπορικές εταιρείες    
Petrwrap: Τρόμος από τις νέες κυβερνοεπιθέσεις – «Χάκαραν» τράπεζες και αεροπορικές εταιρείες
Μετά τον ιό WannaCry που χτύπησε περισσότερες από 150 χώρες, ένα νέο κακόβουλο λογισμικό, που ονομάζεται Petrwrap «απειλεί» επιχειρήσεις και οργανισμούς σε όλο τον κόσμο. 

Σε εξέλιξη βρίσκεται μεγάλη κυβερνοεπίθεση που έπληξε το δίκτυο υπολογιστών της μεγαλύτερης εταιρείας πετρελαίου στην Ρωσία, τράπεζες στην Ουκρανία, αλλά και πολυεθνικές εταιρείες με έναν ιό, που φαίνεται να είναι παρόμοιος με αυτόν που είχε πλήξει περισσότερους από 300.000 υπολογιστές τον προηγούμενο μήνα.
Η εξάπλωση του ιού γίνεται ταχύτατα από την Τρίτη (27/06), προκαλώντας την ανησυχία των επιχειρήσεων που απέτυχαν ν' ασφαλίσουν αποτελεσματικά τα δίκτυα τους, από την οξεία επιθετικότητα των χάκερς. 
Η εξέλιξη της κατάστασης δείχνει ότι υποδομές στρατηγικής σημασίας, δίκτυα υπολογιστών κρατικών υπηρεσιών, αλλά και μεγάλες επιχειρήσεις, είναι ευάλωτες έναντι των σύγχρονων κυβερνοεπιθέσεων.
Οι επιχειρήσεις στην περιοχή της Ασίας και του Ειρηνικού ανέφεραν διακοπές στην λειτουργία τους, ενώ οι δραστηριότητες αρκετών ευρωπαϊκών επιχειρήσεων έχουν πληγεί.
Ο ιός φαίνεται να έπληξε και τον μεγαλύτερο λιμένα υποδοχής εμπορευμάτων στην Ινδία, ενώ οι συνέπειες της επίθεσης σε εταιρείες και κυβερνητικές υποδομές στην ευρύτερη ασιατική περιοχή, φαίνεται να είναι περιορισμένη.

Ποιους κολοσσούς και εταιρείες έχει πλήξει μέχρι στιγμής;

Αφού έπληξε τον ρωσικό πετρελαϊκό κολοσσό Rosneft αλλά και τον ουκρανικό πυρηνικό σταθμό του Τσερνόμπιλ, το λυτρισμικό Petrwrap προκάλεσε στη συνέχεια βλάβες στη λειτουργία των πληροφοριακών συστημάτων της ναυτιλιακής εταιρείας Maersk, έκοψε το ρεύμα στο εργοστάσιο παραγωγής των μπισκότων Lu και Oreo και ανάγκασε τους Γερμανούς εργαζόμενους της Nivea να σχολάσουν νωρίτερα από το κανονικό.
Ο ιός «εξαπλώνεται σε όλον τον κόσμο, έχουν πληγεί πολλές χώρες», προειδοποίησε μέσω του Twitter ο Κόστιν Ράιου, ερευνητής στη ρωσική εταιρεία Kaspersky. Σύμφωνα με τον Ράιου, η Ουκρανία έχει πληγεί περισσότερο από οποιαδήποτε άλλη χώρα και ακολουθούν η Ρωσία και σε μικρότερο βαθμό, η Πολωνία και η Ιταλία.
Παράλληλα, η φαρμακευτική εταιρεία Merck έγινε το πρώτο θύμα στις ΗΠΑ από την παγκόσμια κυβερνοεπίθεση, όπως μεταδίδει το ΑΠΕ-ΜΠΕ.

Πληροφορίες που επιβεβαιώθηκαν από πολλές εταιρείες που δέχτηκαν ταυτόχρονα επίθεση ανέφεραν ότι στην οθόνη των υπολογιστών εμφανιζόταν ένα μήνυμα με το οποίο οι χάκερ ζητούσαν να τους καταβληθούν λύτρα σε bitcoin, ύψους 300 δολαρίων.
petr
Πολλοί ειδικοί στον τομέα της κυβερνοασφάλειας ανέφεραν ότι ο ιός Petrwrap είναι μια τροποποιημένη παραλλαγή του λυτρισμικού Petya που είχε πλήξει πέρσι πολλούς υπολογιστές.
Στη Ρωσία και την Ουκρανία, ο Petrwrap έπληξε τράπεζες, τη σοκολατοβιομηχανία Mars, την Nivea, τη χαλυβουργία Evraz και άλλες εταιρείες και κρατικές οντότητες. 
Στην υπόλοιπη Ευρώπη, εκτός από τη Maersk, δέχτηκαν επίθεση ο βρετανικός διαφημιστικός κολοσσός WPP, το γαλλικό εργοστάσιο Σεν Γκομπέν και η θυγατρική του, Point P, στη βόρεια Γαλλία. Στη Γερμανία, σύμφωνα με τον τηλεοπτικό σταθμό NDR, «δεν λειτουργεί πλέον τίποτα» στη Beiersdorf, το εργοστάσιο που παράγει τα προϊόντα Nivea.

Χειροκίνητα γίνεται η μέτρηση της ραδιενέργειας στο Τσέρνομπιλ

Οι ηλεκτρονικοί υπολογιστές του πυρηνικού σταθμού του Τσερνόμπιλ επλήγησαν από την κυβερνοεπίθεση που έχει εκδηλωθεί σε πολλές χώρες του κόσμου. 
Ως αποτέλεσμα, οι τεχνικοί που εργάζονται ακόμη στον –κλειστό πλέον– σταθμό, στην Ουκρανία, αναγκάστηκαν να μετρούν τα επίπεδα της ραδιενέργειας χρησιμοποιώντας συσκευές Γκάιγκερ αντί για ηλεκτρονικά μέσα, όπως ανακοίνωσε μια εκπρόσωπος των ουκρανικών αρχών.
«Οι τεχνικοί μας μετρούν τη ραδιενέργεια με συσκευές Γκάιγκερ, όπως το έκαναν επί δεκαετίες», είπε η Ολένα Κόβαλτσουκ, η εκπρόσωπος της κρατικής υπηρεσίας διαχείρισης της Ζώνης Αποκλεισμού του Τσερνόμπιλ. Και αυτό επειδή το λογισμικό σύστημα Windows, που κατέγραφε αυτόματα τη ραδιενέργεια δεν λειτουργεί.

«Χτύπησαν» και ρωσικές τράπεζες

Εκτός από τις πετρελαϊκές εταιρείες, κυβερνοεπιθέσεις υπέστησαν και ρωσικές τράπεζες, όπως ανακοίνωσε η κεντρική τράπεζα της Ρωσίας.
Ωστόσο σύμφωνα με δηλώσεις του εκπροσώπου τύπου της Τράπεζας της Ρωσίας, «δεν παρατηρήθηκαν δυσλειτουργίες στα συστήματα των τραπεζών και στα σημεία εξυπηρέτησης των πελατών». 
Ο ίδιος εκπρόσωπος δήλωσε ότι στην παρούσα φάση το αρμόδιο Κέντρο για την αντιμετώπιση των κυβερνοεπιθέσεων στο χρηματοπιστωτικό σύστημα (FinCERT) της κεντρικής τράπεζας της Ρωσίας συνεργάζεται με τις υπόλοιπες τράπεζες για την εξάλειψη των συνεπειών που προκλήθηκαν από τις επιθέσεις.
H εταιρεία Group-IB -η οποία ασχολείται με την αποτροπή των κυβερνοεπιθέσεων και την διερεύνηση τους- ανακοίνωσε ότι ο ιός μεταδίδεται στα τοπικά δίκτυα με τον ίδιο τρόπο που μεταδίδεται ο ιός WannaCry. 
Ειδικοί της εταιρείας εντόπισαν ότι πρόσφατα ο ιός Petya είχε χρησιμοποιηθεί από την ομάδα Cobalt με στόχο να αποκρύψει τα ίχνη των στοχευμένων επιθέσεων σε τράπεζες.

          Blockchain Heralded by Governments   
It is amazing how different technologies can be adapted to new uses and markets. Blockchain, the technology behind the fabulously fluctuating Bitcoin, is increasingly being heralded by governments as the technology to revolutionise the public sector.
          Bitcoin Stockpiles for Potential Cyber-Attacks   
According to ComputerWeekly.com, large UK firms are prepared to pay out more than £136,000 on average to cyber criminals who launch ransomware attacks, after building stockpiles of bitcoin.
          Bitcoin casinos report large profits   

Bitcoin-based casinos are reporting pretty serious, six-figure profits on a series of games wherein players' apopheniac tendencies cause them to hallucinate non-randomness in the performance of a pseudorandom-number generator. The casinos claim that their financial numbers can be trusted because of BitCoin's shared logfile, which can be parsed to show their earnings.

SatoshiDice, which has servers based in Ireland, is a pseudo-random number generator game where players choose a number and then bet on the likelihood that a “rolled number” is greater than the one they’ve selected. If the rolled number is greater, then they win. The house has a 1.9 percent edge—which is where the profit comes in.

The online dice game has returned profits to the tune of ฿33,310 ($596,231) during 2012—an average actual profit of ฿135.96 ($2,416) per day from May through December 2012. During that period, players put down a total of 2,349,882 bets. That’s still minuscule by Las Vegas standards, but respectable.

bitZino, by contrast, released its figures in early January and seems to be doing a decent pace of business too (bitZino's bookkeeping only measures June 9 to December 31, 2012). The online casino—hosted in the US, offering online poker, blackjack, craps, and roulette—did not publish a profit and loss statement. bitZino did say it had paid out ฿28,986 ($495,000)—and that 3.2 million wagers were made during H2 2012.

Bitcoin-based casino rakes in more than $500,000 profit in six months

          Market Extra: What delivered the best return of 2017’s first half? Bitcoin and ethereum   
Say what you will about the cryprocurrency market in the first half of the year, but give it this: it wasn’t boring.

          Asus’s newest graphics cards definitely aren’t for gamers   
A basic graphic card is all a computer needs to display the user interface on a computer screen. For graphics-intensive tasks, such as 4K video, games, VR, and plenty of other apps, you’ll need a more powerful discrete graphics card that can deliver more processing power. However, graphics cards makers are about to launch a new generation of products that can barely connect to an external monitor. That seems to be counter-intuitive. After all, you need to be able to hook up your graphics card to a screen to actually make use of it. But it really isn’t. Graphics cards makers are simply catering to a different target, one that isn't about graphics. Cryptocurrency miners discovered years ago that mining for Bitcoin is a lot more profitable if you use a GPU. The same principles apply to newer currencies, including Ethereum and others. Which means that miners out there have been buying GPUs like crazy in the past few months, to improve their returns. The more processing power, the higher the award. Asus is one of the companies out there looking to satisfy the needs of these customers. The newly announced Mining RX 470 and Mining P106 are equivalents of the RX 470 and Nvidia GTX 1060 cards already available in stores — if you can find them. But these new models are not meant to be used for playing the latest games or running graphics intensive apps. The P106 doesn’t even have connectors so it can’t be hooked up to display, while the Mining RX 470 only has a DVI output, while the DisplayPort and HDMI ports lack connectors. The Mining P106 offers a 36% better performance at mining, and these cards are meant to operate 24/7. As Forbes notes, the cards are designed for prolonged continuous use, as they contain “high-efficiency components and reduced-friction, dual ball bearing fans that can last up to twice as long as traditional sleeve bearing fans.” The fans are also dust resistant. The Asus Mining series will be available in July, but prices have not been announced. Sapphire, and other graphics cards makers are working on similar components for cryptocurrency mining rigs.
          What we know about the ‘kill switch’ in ‘Petya’ ransomware attack   
iStock/Thinkstock(MOSCOW) — Cybersecurity researchers have been racing to analyze the new ransomware that struck Tuesday, first hitting Ukraine in an avalanche of attacks before spreading to companies around the world. The malicious software has been identified as a modified version of a previously known ransomware called Petya or Petrwrap, but has been substantially altered, prompting a debate among researchers over whether it represents new malware. Here’s what we know: How the malware worksThe malware works by encrypting a computer’s hard disk, locking users out and then posting a ransom demand telling them to pay $300 to a bitcoin account to unblock it. At face value, it seems to resemble WannaCry — the ransomware that locked out hundreds of thousands of computers in May — but researchers have already noted some crucial differences. A key difference so far has been that unlike WannaCry, researchers have not been able to find a so-called “kill switch” that shuts down this malicious code globally. But researchers believe they have found a temporary means of...

          Y nuestros amigos de hispasec tambien han editado información al respecto del ciberataque del momento, petya o le llamen   
Petya es el nuevo ransomware que causa estragos en todo el mundo



No han pasado ni dos meses desde que Wannacry hiciera temblar a muchas

de las grandes compañías de todo el mundo cuando otro ransomware similar

vuelve a atacar.



Todo indica que este nuevo ataque se está reproduciendo a gran velocidad

por todo el mundo, aunque por el momento Ucrania parece ser el país más

afectado. Petya (diminutivo ruso de Pedro) actúa de forma similar a

Wannacry, de hecho emplea el mismo exploit conocido como ETERNALBLUE.

También se han detectado casos de afectados en España.



Imagen de Petya pidiendo el rescate:



https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-xNw8mKhuzDc/WVKHEC-ijhI/AAAAAAAAJAE/lbsSKLXbWWsCcb5m3vCaNmvd7Mkr77CUACLcBGAs/s1600/petya_rescate.jpg





El mensaje es claro:

"Si ves este texto, tus archivos ya no están accesibles, porque han sido

cifrados. Tal vez estés ocupado buscando una forma de recuperar tus

archivos, pero no malgastes tu tiempo. Nadie puede recuperar tus

archivos sin nuestro servicio de descifrado".



Control actual de esta variante de ransomware segun informe de VIRUSTOTAL:



https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-7SHprNX8fPE/WVKI0PBwwGI/AAAAAAAAJAQ/GNGuJNG-ljAA5i40Rfig8OC0g5RPLD0PQCLcBGAs/s1600/PetyaVT.PNG



Tal y como ocurría con Wannacry el virus cifra archivos importantes del

usuario y muestra un mensaje en el que se solicita un rescate para

recuperar la información secuestrada. La lista de extensiones cifradas

es amplia:

.3ds .7z .accdb .ai .asp .aspx .avhd .back .bak .c .cfg .conf .cpp .cs

.ctl .dbf .disk .djvu .doc .docx .dwg .eml .fdb .gz .h .hdd .kdbx .mail

.mdb .msg .mrg .ora .ost .ova .ovf .pdf .php .pmf .ppt .pptx .pst .pvi

.py .pyc .rar .rtf .sln .sql .tar .vbox .vbs .vcb .vdi .vfd .vmc .vmdk

.vmsd .vmx .vsdx .vsv .work .xls .xlsx .xvd .zip

Documentos, bases de datos, hojas de cálculo, correos, archivos

comprimidos… toda la información importante se verá cifrada tras la

actuación de Petya.



Petya no es un malware nuevo, hace más de un año ya empezamos a ver

muestras de este malware. En esta ocasión nos encontramos con una nueva

versión que ha recogido el exploit empleado por Wannacry para su

actuación.



En esta ocasión el rescate solicitado para recuperar la información es

de 300 euros en bitcoins.



Una de las acciones que realiza este malware es cifrar el MBR al

reiniciar, por lo que ya será imposible acceder al sistema operativo y

solo se mostrará una pantalla al arrancar el ordenador. De todas formas

cuenta con un temporizador de una hora para forzar el reinicio. La

recomendación en este caso es desconectar el equipo de la red hasta

actualizar, pero no apagarlo y evitar cualquier tipo de reinicio

forzado.



Para la infección a través de la red emplea técnicas de movimiento

lateral a través de WMIC. Estas técnicas permiten al malware conseguir

información de los sistemas de la red incluso sin necesidad de

utilidades adicionales como RAT.



Los parches a aplicar en este caso son los mismos que para Wannacry. Es

decir, aquellos sistemas que ya aplicaron los parches necesarios

anteriormente no pueden verse afectados. Las actualizaciones publicadas

por Microsoft para evitar esta vulnerabilidad se encuentran bajo el

boletín MS17-010

http://unaaldia.hispasec.com/2017/06/petya-es-el-nuevo-ransomware-que-causa.html
          Y desde la osi (oficina de seguridad del internauta) recibimos el siguiente boletín: nueva oleada de ransomware afectand   
Se está produciendo una infección de equipos con sistemas Windows en diferentes organizaciones. El malware responsable es de tipo ransomware y pertenece a la familia conocida como Petya o Petrwrap. Una vez que compromete el sistema solicita el pago de 300 dólares.





Recursos afectados : Equipos con sistemas Windows.





Solución



Se recomienda tomar las siguientes medidas preventivas:



1. Realizar copias de seguridad periódicamente en dispositivos o medios que estén desconectados de manera habitual del sistema, solo deben estar conectados mientras se realiza la copia.



2. Tener precaución al seguir enlaces en correos, mensajería instantánea y redes sociales, aunque sean de contactos conocidos. También al descargar ficheros adjuntos aunque sean de contactos conocidos.



3. Permanecer atentos a las actualizaciones de seguridad. Si no mantienes tus equipos actualizados te expondrás a todo tipo de riesgos: robo de información, pérdida de privacidad, perjuicio económico, suplantación de identidad, etc.



4. Usar cuentas de usuario sin permisos de administrador. El uso de la cuenta de administrador debe limitarse a aquellas situaciones en las que necesitamos disponer de privilegios: realizar cambios en la configuración, instalar una nueva aplicación, dar de alta un nuevo usuario, etc. Al finalizar estas tareas, debemos seguir trabajando con una cuenta estándar.



5. Instalar software específico anti-ransomware. Está apareciendo software de este tipo para proteger a los sistemas.



Tanto McAfee como Kaspersky ya controlan con las actuales versiones de sus AV dicha nueva variante



En caso de verse afectado puede contactar con el CERTSI para recibir ayuda a través de los siguientes canales:



Ciudadanos y empresas: a través de la OSI (http://www.osi.es y el teléfono 901111121) y de la dirección de correo electrónico



Detalles



La infección se está produciendo a través de equipos con sistemas operativo Windows y, según confirman diferentes fuentes, está teniendo impacto alto en Ucrania.



El malware, perteneciente a la familia conocida como Petya o Petrwrap, es de tipo ransomware. Una vez infectado el equipo, se muestran los siguientes mensajes mientras cifra varios tipos de ficheros.





https://www.osi.es/sites/default/files/actualidad/avisos/2017/Junio/img-20170627-wa0017.jpg

https://www.osi.es/sites/default/files/actualidad/avisos/2017/Junio/img-20170627-wa0018.jpg



Finalmente, solicita un pago de 300 dólares mediante bitcoins para poder recuperar los ficheros cifrados. El impacto en España está bajo estudio. Por el momento, el malware está teniendo un impacto bajo y no ha afectado a ningún servicio esencial. En cualquier caso, recomendamos seguir las pautas indicados en el apartado "Solución" con el fin de prevenir la infección.

          Y parece que ya se sabe como llega el ransomware del momento   
Petya: un virus en un currículum alojado en Dropbox



Petya, un virus en un currículum y alojado en DropBox es el causante de la nueva oleada de ataques que está afectando a empresas de medio mundo. Tal y como ha confirmado la empresa de seguridad Trend Micro, Petya recurre a provocar la pantalla azul de la muerte (BSoD) y a incluir sus notas de petición de rescate al iniciarse el sistema, incluso antes de que se cargue el sistema operativo.



Petya se distribuye por correo electrónico y aparenta ser un curriculum alojado en DropBox



Según esta multinacional de la ciberseguridad, este malware no sólo tiene la posibilidad de sobrescribir el registro de arranque principal, también conocido como registro de arranque maestro (MBR) del sistema afectado con el fin de bloquear el acceso a los usuarios, sino que para llegar a las víctimas utiliza un servicio de almacenamiento cloud legítimo (en este caso lo hace a través de Dropbox). El equipo de investigación de Trend Micro ha observado que no se trata de la primera vez que el malware abusa de un servicio legítimo para su propio beneficio; sin embargo, ésta es la primera vez (desde hace un largo período de tiempo) que provoca la infección por crypto-ransomware. También es una desviación de la cadena de infección típica, en la que los archivos maliciosos están asociados a mensajes de correo electrónico o alojados en sitios maliciosos y son entregados por kits de exploits.



Rutina de infección de Petya

Según se informa, Petya todavía se distribuye por correo electrónico. Las víctimas recibirán un email personalizado que invita a leer una aparente carta o mensaje de negocios en el que un aspirante busca un puesto de trabajo en una empresa. Se presentaría a los usuarios con un hipervínculo a un lugar de almacenamiento de Dropbox, que supuestamente permitiría la descarga del currículum vitae (CV) del candidato.



En una de las muestras analizadas, en la carpeta de Dropbox los puntos de enlace contienen dos archivos: un archivo ejecutable autoextraíble, que pretende ser el CV, y las fotos del solicitante. Profundizando más, se ha encontrado que la foto es una imagen de stock que es muy probable que se utilice sin el permiso del fotógrafo. Por supuesto, detrás del Currículum se encuentra un troyano que ciega a los programas antivirus instalados antes de descargar (y ejecutar) el ransomware Petya.



Una vez ejecutado, PETYA sobrescribe el MBR de todo el disco duro, haciendo que Windows se cuelgue y muestre una pantalla azul. En caso de que el usuario trate de reiniciar su PC, el MBR modificado le impedirá la carga de Windows con normalidad y, en cambio, le dará la bienvenida con una calavera ASCII y un ultimátum: pague una cierta cantidad de bitcoins o perderá el acceso a sus archivos y al equipo.



Otra cosa a destacar es que el MBR editado tampoco permite reiniciar en Modo Seguro. Acto seguido, el usuario recibe instrucciones explícitas sobre cómo hacer el pago, al igual que cualquier crypto-ransomware que esté circulando en la actualidad: una lista de demandas, un enlace a Tor Project y cómo llegar a la página de pago a través de él, y un código de descifrado personal.

          The cryptocurrency universe keeps expanding   

Bitcoin is the original cryptocurrency, and its meteoric rise has made it a mainstay of conversation for investors, media, and technologists alike.

In fact, the innovation of the blockchain is changing entire markets, while causing ripples with central banks and the financial industry. At time of publication, the bitcoin price now hovers near US$2,400, a massive increase from this time last year.

But the true impact of Bitcoin is actually far more reaching than this – it’s actually helped to birth new markets for over 800 other cryptocurrencies and assets that are available for online trading. And while the market for bitcoins is worth $40 billion itself, the rest of these cryptocurrencies are actually worth even more in combination.

 

THE ALTCOIN UNIVERSE

For the first time since Bitcoin was founded, it now makes up the minority of the entire cryptocurrency market at about 41.6% of all coins and assets.

BitcoinVisual Capitalist

So what are the other altcoins that make up the rest of this universe, and where did they come from?

Litecoin
Litecoin is one of the first altcoins, and it is nearly identical to Bitcoin after being “forked” in 2011. Litecoin aims to process blocks 4x faster than Bitcoin to speed up transaction confirmation time, though this creates several other challenges as well. At time of writing, Litecoin’s market capitalization is worth $2.1 billion.

Ethereum
Ethereum, launched in 2015, is the largest coin by market capitalization aside from Bitcoin. However, it is also quite different. While Bitcoin is designed to be a payments protocol first, Ethereum enables developers to build and deploy decentralized applications, while also enabling smart contracts. The tokens used to power the network are called Ether, but they can also be traded online. At time of writing, Ethereum’s market capitalization is $25.7 billion.

Also interesting: the Ethereum network actually split into two in 2016. It’s a complicated situation, but read about it here. There is now a separate Ethereum, based on the original Ethereum blockchain, trading as “Ethereum Classic” with its own market capitalization of $1.8 billion.

Ripple
Ripple (XRP) is the native currency of the Ripple Protocol – a broader catch-all for an open-source, global exchange. It’s already being used by banks such as Santander, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, UBS, and RBC. It solves a different problem than Bitcoin, allowing for settling payments between different currencies and even different payment systems. Today, Ripple’s native coin (XRP) has a market cap of $10.5 billion.

LEARN MORE

With over 800+ altcoins or assets out there, there’s plenty of information to absorb.

Here’s a short 20-minute course on the history of altcoins that might provide useful context, as well as in-depth explanations of Ethereum and Ripple that may help you learn about the important parts of a rapidly growing altcoin universe.

          Bitcoin donations to a $16 billion charitable fund are soaring   

Screen Shot 2017 06 28 at 4.33.06 PMMI

Bitcoin is red hot these days. The price of the cryptocurrency is up about 140% since the beginning of this year. And now it looks like bitcoin's popularity among the charitable is also on the rise. 

According to the recently released Fidelity Charitable 2017 Giving Report, donations made in bitcoin to Fidelity Charitable, a $16 billion donor-advised philanthropic fund, grew to about $9 million in the first half of 2017. That's about $2 million more than what bitcoin donors contributed in 2016.

The report paints a picture of the nearly 150,000 people who donate to the fund in order to illustrate trends in charitable giving, according to Fidelity Charitable's site.  

Donors to the fund have been able to give in bitcoin since 2015, according to a media representative at Fidelity, after joint collaborations between Fidelity Charitable and Fidelity Labs, Fidelity's emerging technology incubator. 

Fidelity's CEO Abigail Johnson is a bitcoin enthusiast. In May, The Wall Street Journal reported that Johnson voiced her support of the cryptocurrency in a speech at a conference hosted by CoinDesk, a cryptocurrency news site.

“Some of you might be wondering: Why am I here today?” Johnson said, according to the Journal."I’m here because I love this stuff... all that the future might hold.”

Not everyone in the financial world is as bullish as Johnson. Morgan Stanley, for instance, recently said that merchants don't think cryptocurrencies like bitcoin have a viable future. Here's Morgan Stanley:

"Most regulators and investors view cryptocurrencies more as assets than actual currencies. Their values are too volatile and too hard to actually use for payment for most to consider them currencies. Our conversations with some merchants indicate that, while cryptocurrencies might actually be attractive for them to operate their businesses, they find that the cryptocurrencies are far too volatile to be used."

Other obstacles to bitcoin, according to the bank, include the Chinese crackdown on mining bitcoin and declining trading volumes

          THE PAYMENTS INDUSTRY EXPLAINED: The Trends Creating New Winners And Losers In The Card-Processing Ecosystem   

bii payments ecosystemUSETHISBI Intelligence

This is a preview of a research report from BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service. To learn more about BI Intelligence, click here.

The way we pay is changing dramatically. For example, people are beginning to use their smartphones for every kind of formal and informal transaction — to shop at stores, buy songs online, and even split their rent.

At the heart of these changes in how we pay are thousands of companies competing and collaborating to facilitate transactions.

To understand why the payments industry has faced so much disruption in such a short time, there's just one key thing to understand: Payments is about transferring information from one party to another, and nearly every stakeholder in the industry benefits when that process runs on digital rails.

But payments is also an extremely complex industry that few fully understand.

In BI Intelligence's 2016 Payments Ecosystem report, we make it simple, explaining how it works, who the key players are, and where it's headed.

In this latest edition of the report, BI Intelligence drills even further into the industry to explain how a broad range of transactions are processed, including prepaid and store cards, as well as revealing which types of companies are in the best and worst position to capitalize on the latest industry trends.

Here are some key takeaways from the report:

  • 2016 will be a watershed year for the payments industry. Payments companies are improving security, expanding their mobile offerings, and building commerce capabilities that will give consumers a more compelling reason to make purchases using digital devices.
  • Payments is an extremely complex industry. To understand the next big digital opportunity lies, it's critical to understand how the traditional credit- and debit-processing chain works and what roles acquirers, processors, issuing banks, card networks, independent sales organizations, gateways, and software and hardware providers play.
  • Alternative technologies could disrupt the processing ecosystem. Devices ranging from refrigerators to smartwatches now feature payment capabilities, which will spur changes in consumer payment behaviors. Likewise, blockchain technology, the protocol that underlies Bitcoin, could one day change how consumer card payments are verified.

In full, the report:

  • Uncovers the key themes and trends affecting the payments industry in 2016 and beyond.
  • Gives a detailed description of the stakeholders involved in a payment transaction, along with hardware and software providers.
  • Offers diagrams and infographics explaining how card transactions are processed and which players are involved in each step.
  • Provides charts on our latest forecasts, key company growth, survey results, and more.
  • Analyzes the alternative technologies, including blockchain, which could further disrupt the ecosystem.

          Experts say Petya ransomware is just a ‘test’ for something much worse   

Experts say Petya ransomware is just a ‘test’ for something much worse

A new ransomware attack, modeled after the recent WannaCry exploit, has hit thousands of organizations and users worldwide. But according to a handful of security experts, it's only the tip of the iceberg. The ransomware attack, which encrypts users' files and demands a ransom to unlock them, could just be a test attack, or cover for more malicious damage being done by the virus.

"“I’m willing to say with at least moderate confidence that this was a deliberate, malicious, destructive attack or perhaps a test disguised as ransomware. The best way to put it is that Petya’s payment infrastructure is a fecal theater," security researcher Nicholas Weaver told KrebsOnSecurity.

His sentiments were echoed by "the grugq," an anonymous security researcher who blogs about security issues. He highlights the same thing as Weaver, namely that the payment infrastructure for the virus is poorly designed.

Normally, ransomware viruses demand payment in Bitcoin to a Bitcoin account that is unique to every victim. That makes it harder to track the Bitcoin, or for researchers to work out the identity of the attackers.

Communication is normally done through the obfuscated Tor protocol, which relies on a distributed web of servers and is impossible for one organization to shut down. In this instance, however, the attackers had one single email address listed for communication. It was quickly shut down by Posteo, the German ISP responsible for the email account. That means that victims will not be able to communicate with the attackers to organize payment or receive decryption codes, effectively meaning any encrypted files will be lost forever, if backups aren't available.

"If this well engineered and highly crafted worm was meant to generate revenue, this payment pipeline was possibly the worst of all options (short of “send a personal cheque to: Petya Payments, PO Box …”)," the grugq explains. It's suspicious that such a well-designed piece of ransomware would have such a bad payment system -- unless, of course, the aim was never to make money.

"This is definitely not designed to make money. This is designed to spread fast and cause damage, with a plausibly deniable cover of “ransomware.”, the grugq continues.

Weaver confirmed this to Krebs, saying that Petya "appears to have been well engineered to be destructive while masquerading as a ransomware strain."

Attributing blame for cyberattacks is always difficult, but the high concentration of Ukranian victims -- the attack was originally distributed through Ukranian tax software MeDoc -- raises questions about potential Russian involvement.

          ООН назвала вирус Petya более опасным и технически сложным, чем WannaCry   

ВЕНА, 28 июня. /Корр. ТАСС Дмитрий Валеев/. Вирус- вымогатель Petya технически сложнее и более опасен, чем WannaCry. Он атакует системы тремя разными способами. Об этом заявил в среду корреспонденту ТАСС руководитель отдела по борьбе с киберпреступностью Управления ООН по наркотикам и преступности и Глобальной программы по киберпреступности Нил Уолш. «Новый вирус [Petya] — это совершенно новый тип вируса- вымогателя. У него конечно есть определенные сходства с другими вирусами, но именно этот вирус атакует системы тремя разными способами, поэтому у него много преимуществ перед другими вирусами. В свою очередь WannaCry использует только один вредоносный код», — отметил главный эксперт ООН по киберпреступности. По словам Уолша, новая атака несет угрозы абсолютно всем предприятиям, экономикам, государствам, частным пользователям сети. «Мы видим, что парализована работа датской судоходной компании Maersk (Мэрск), затронуты все ее контейнерные перевозки. Затронуты индийские порты, российские нефтяные компании», — добавил он. Как подчеркнул собеседник агентства, «в настоящее время рано давать оценку масштабу распространения вируса- вымогателя по всему миру, но уже с уверенностью можно говорить, что помимо России и Украины им поражены и страны в Европе». «Так, США пытаются оценить урон своим системам, у нас пока нет от них сведений. Среди европейских стран можно назвать Австрию, Великобританию, Данию, Францию. Окончательный список будет известен позднее», — сказал Уолш. 27 июня вирус-вымогатель, блокирующий доступ к данным и требующий деньги за разблокировку, атаковал десятки энергетических, телекоммуникационных и финансовых компаний и организаций в России и на Украине, а затем распространился по всему миру. Эксперты компании Group-IB, специализирующейся на компьютерной безопасности и защите от киберугроз, назвали причиной масштабной атаки на российские и украинские компании вирус-шифровальщик Petya, который препятствует загрузке операционной системы, блокирует компьютеры и требует выкуп в размере 300 долларов в биткоинах. При этом компания «Лаборатория Касперского» пришла к выводу, что мир столкнулся с новым вирусом- вымогателем и назвала его NotPetya. 12 мая хакеры атаковали компьютеры с операционной системой Windows в 74 странах с использованием вируса- шифровальщика WannaCry. За расшифровку данных злоумышленники требовали заплатить 600 долларов в криптовалюте Bitcoin. Преступники прибегли к шпионскому программному обеспечению, которое использовало Агентство национальной безопасности США. Источник новости

          Как защитить свой компьютер от нового вируса Petya   

Вирус-шифровальщик Petya парализовал работу крупных компаний и государственных организаций по всему миру. Новый вирус начиная с 27 июня атаковал десятки тысяч компьютеров. По данным информационного агентства Reuters, он, в частности, вызвал хаос в портах от Мумбаи до Лос-Анджелеса, остановил производство на фабрике шоколада в Австралии и перевел в ручной режим систему радиационного мониторинга в зоне отчуждения в Чернобыле. читайте также Напомним, что в середине мая пользователи Интернета по всему миру уже столкнулись с похожим вирусом, который шифрует содержимое жесткого диска компьютера и требует перечислить определенную сумму в криптовалюте Bitcoin, чтобы вернуть доступ к данным. По информации британского издания The Guardian, предыдущий вирус WannaCry атаковал более 230 тысяч компьютеров в более чем 150 государствах. Чтобы защититься от вируса, по словам экспертов, все без исключения компьютеры в компании или организации должны быть защищены — на них должна стоять самая свежая версия Windows с обновлениями и современный антивирус. Одного незащищенного ПК достаточно, чтобы заразить все компьютеры внутренней сети. Также следует игнорировать электронные письма от незнакомцев и не нажимать на ссылки в них. А продвинутые пользователи могут создать в папке Windows на системном диске C: файл под названием perfc или perfc.dll. Обнаружив такие файлы, вирус не будет заражать компьютер, утверждают в компании Symantec. Ну и, конечно, нельзя отправлять создателям вируса никаких денег. Тем более что, по данным СМИ, электронный почтовый ящик хакеров заблокирован и письма не дойдут до адресата. Источник новости

          Эксперт: Чем больше денег идет через Сеть, тем больше киберпреступников   

Чем больше денег идет через Интернет, тем больше там киберпреступников Новый вирус, получивший название Petya, начал распространяться 27 июня и за сутки атаковал несколько сотен тысяч компьютеров по всему миру, включая Россию, Польшу, Белоруссию, Украину, Италию и другие страны. Многие зараженные ПК были установлены в крупных компаниях и государственных организациях, которые были вынуждены приостановить работу. Как и нашумевший в середине мая вирус WannaCry, новый вредоносный объект шифрует содержимое жесткого диска компьютера и требует перечислить 300 долларов в криптовалюте Bitcoin, чтобы вернуть доступ к данным. После отправки денег нужно сообщить хакерам код перевода. Вот и вся нехитрая схема отъема денег у граждан и организаций. Насколько далеко могут завести мир эти технологии, которые совершенствуются буквально на глазах? И могут уже застопорить работу крупных компаний, заставить перевести на ручное управление атомные электростанции? Не стоим ли мы на пороге цифровых войн? Мир уже три-четыре года назад вступил в эпоху цифровых войн «Не думаю, что появление нового вируса говорит о том, что мы стоим на пороге эпохи «цифрового терроризма», — успокаивает руководитель аналитического центра Zecurion Владимир Ульянов. — Однако его распространение говорит о том, что сделан вирус профессионально, так, чтобы замести все следы. Чтобы понять, кто стоит за этой атакой, надо всем странам объединиться. Это настоящий вызов». Но здесь, кстати, мнения экспертов «РГ» разделились. читайте также Однако, чем больше денег идет через Интернет, тем больше возникает киберпреступников, это реальность, продолжает Ульянов. И гонка технологий вышла на массовый пользовательский уровень. Так что же делать? Соблюдать гигиену. «Данные о вирусе, которые существуют сегодня, пока не позволяют сделать вывод, что у него какая-то новая конструкция, новое поколение, — поясняет Ульянов. — Инструменты, которые он использует для проникновения в компьютер, достаточно известны. Другое дело — человеческий фактор, когда пользователь компьютера вскрывает непонятные файлы, идет по неизвестным ссылкам. Так что до тех пор, пока пользователь сам не научится компьютерной гигиене, никакие технические средства не помогут». Что касается возможных проблем мирового масштаба, то этих опасений эксперт тоже не разделяет. Не так уж и много компьютеров оказалось заражено, говорит он, по миру это тысячные доли процента. Но вызов однозначно брошен. Ответ за нами. Комментарий Юрий Наместников, руководитель российского исследовательского центра Лаборатории Касперского: — Масштаб заражения вирусом достаточно большой, но надо понимать, что он заточен на поражение корпоративных систем и по всему интернету не распространяется. Для компаний он, конечно, опасен, особенно для крупных, потому что заражение в рамках корпоративной сети может приводить к очень серьезным сбоям в работе и убыткам. читайте также В данном вредоносном ПО использованы переработанные, но уже известные элементы, существовавшие в шифровальщике Wannacry, который заразил сотни тысяч компьютеров в мае. Эти элементы используют для атаки уже известные уязвимости в операционной системе. Чтобы ликвидировать эти уязвимости, достаточно установить обновление Windows, доступное уже несколько месяцев. Но при этом собраны эти элементы в единый вредоносный комплекс нетривиальным хитрым образом, с целью максимизации ущерба жертвам. Существует возможность отслеживать, сколько денег заработали киберпреступники, и эта сумма остается очень незначительной по сравнению с ущербом, который эпидемия наносит жертвам. Из этого можно сделать вывод, что деньги в данном случае не были основной целью преступников. Ущерб они смогли нанести огромный, в том числе репутации компаний-жертвам. Такая же история была с шифровальщиком Wannacry, глобальный ущерб оценивают в 1 млрд. долларов, автопроизводители были вынуждены останавливать конвейеры, при этом заработали преступники менее 150 тыс. долларов. Если это можно назвать эпохой цифрового терроризма, то эта эпоха началась. Советы экспертов «РГ» Не читай чужие письма Что нужно знать пользователям и администраторам, чтобы защититься от вируса. Во-первых, как утверждают эксперты, все без исключения компьютеры в компании или организации должны быть защищены — на них должна стоять самая свежая версия Windows с обновлениями и современный антивирус. Одного незащищенного ПК достаточно, чтобы заразить все компьютеры внутренней сети фирмы. читайте также Операционные системы Linux и MacOS, а также Windows 10 с новейшими обновлениями не подвержены заражению. Во-вторых, следует игнорировать электронные письма от незнакомцев и не нажимать на ссылки в этих письмах (часто в описании содержится просьба или требование скачать важный документ или резюме). Вирус распространяется в том числе именно через такие сообщения. В-третьих, продвинутые пользователи могут создать в папке Windows на системном диске C: файл с именем perfc или perfc.dll. Обнаружив такие файлы, вирус не будет заражать компьютер, утверждают в компании Symantec. В-четвертых, нельзя отправлять создателям вируса никаких денег. На данный момент известно, что электронный почтовый ящик хакеров заблокирован и прочитать письма от жертв, приславших им деньги, они не смогут. Между тем В среду министр обороны Великобритании Майкл Фэллон заявил, что Лондон готов ответить хакерам ракетным ударом. При этом он все же уточнил, что у британских спецслужб нет доказательств того, кто именно стоит за атаками. А как тогда военные намерены выбирать цели для ракетного удара? Тем не менее всем хакерам г-н Фэллон фактически готов объявить войну. Министр прямо заявил, что новые атаки на государственные учреждения и институты Великобритании «могут побудить к ответу из любой среды: воздуха, земли, моря и киберпространства».

          Litecoin 迎來第一次減半. 50 LTC -> 25 LTC 如果價值維持低迷, 挖礦將開始出現退場潮.   
http://tw.rter.info/exchange/LTC-TWD.html 


Litecoin, often referred to as the “silver to Bitcoin’s gold” was one of the first innovative altcoins with its introduction of the scrypt hashing algorithm to make mining fairer. However in recent years, opinions have been divided as to whether Litecoin is bringing anything new to the table or just riding the coattails of Bitcoin.
There are plenty of room for discussion, but one thing has to be said: Litecoin has been holding strong for four years now, and it looks like it will continue for many years to come.

Block Reward Halving Coming Soon

On 25 August 2015, Litecoin will go through a big milestone where its block reward will halve, from 50 LTC to 25 LTC. Litecoin enthusiasts hope to see a major price increase take place from this day forward, even though the Litecoin Association stresses that the Litecoin price is not paramount to what the virtual currency is trying to achieve.
Litecoin, just like Bitcoin, offers a plethora of new tools and innovative technology to revolutionize the world as we know it. The financial aspect is a major part of Litecoin and its technology, yet the possibilities have far wider implications.
That being said, the Litecoin block halving remains an important milestone in the history of this altcoin, as fewer coins will be generated on a daily basis. Unlike fiat currencies, where additional money can be printed at the whims of central banks, Litecoin and other virtual currencies rely on miners to bring additional coins in circulation. With block rewards halving at regular intervals, the total amount of LTC will be increasing at a slower pace, without devaluing the existing coin supply.
The Litecoin Association has produced an educational video explaining the block reward halving here:

A Brief History of Litecoin

Despite using a different hashing algorithm, both Litecoin and Bitcoin show a lot of similarities; after all, Litecoin is a fork of Bitcoin.
7 October 2011 was an important day in the history of Litecoin as this was the day when the genesis block was mined. On October 23rd, Litecoin was officially released to the public on the Bitcointalk forum. A total of three blocks had been pre-mined by Litecoin developer Charlie Lee, to ensure the network was stable.
Charlie made a decision to pre-announce Litecoin nearly a week before the actual release so that more users would be aware of the launch. This pre-announcement ensured a fair launch and distribution of coins, something that was greatly appreciated by the virtual currency community back then.

Growth of the Litecoin Ecosystem

While many people doubted the potential of Litecoin at that time, the virtual currency has achieved global adoption and widespread acceptance in its four years of existence. Litecoin is listed on nearly every cryptocurrency exchange in the world and is an alternative payment method on platforms such as eGifter, BTCTrip, CheapAir.com and also payment processors such as GoCoin.
Similar to the Bitcoin network, Litecoin has a lot of computational power dedicated to finding new blocks, confirming transactions and securing the network. A major milestone was reached in October 2014 when the Litecoin network surpassed one terahash of mining power. To put things into perspective, Litecoin is one of the very few virtual currencies to surpass that goal, which goes to show there is a healthy interest in what Litecoin has to offer.
All of this has translated to Litecoin holding the second largest market capitalization and an overall ranking of #2 on CoinGecko. At the time of writing, Litecoin’s market capitalization is over US$144,753,337.61.

Litecoin has consistently also showed that it has one of the strongest altcoin community, coming in only behind Bitcoin and Dogecoin when measured in terms of Facebook, Twitter and Reddit activity. Its developers have also been hard at work improving the source code judging from its Github activity.

          Litecoin v0.10.2.2 釋出   
What's New in version v0.10?
This is a major release of Litecoin Core, featuring the technical equivalent of Bitcoin v0.10.2 but with Litecoin specific patches. On a general level, most of what is new is is hidden where block synchronization and various internals are considerably faster and more efficient, and it has several major privacy improvements.  The most significant changes include:


  • Watch-only wallet support. This allows the wallet to track transactions to and form wallets for which you know the address of but do not have the private key to.
  • Faster blockchain synchronization due to headers-first synchronization and support for downloading blocks in parallel. Downloading the blockchain is now much quicker and can be completed within a few hours instead of taking days for some users.
  • A REST interface which allows unauthenticated access to public node data when the -rest flag is specified.
  • RPC Server “Warm-Up” Mode which starts earlier than previous versions. This helps users or services relying on it know that the server has already started and will be available soon.
  • Improved signing security. This is due to using the libsecp256k1 library for signing instead of OpenSSL. libsecp256k1 is a cryptographic library optimized for elliptic curve uses which Litecoin relies on and was created by Bitcoin Core developer Pieter Wuille. Featuring better security, via hardening against timing leaks and derandomization, this library is believed to be better tested and more thoroughly reviewed than the implementation in OpenSSL.
  • New utility applications including litecoin-tx for transaction related functionality and litecoin-cli for RPC command line functionality as litecoind no longer accepts them.
  • Strict DER encoding for signatures (BIP 66). This introduces block version 3 and a new consensus rule which prevents non-standard transactions from being included in blocks. This also removes the dependency on OpenSSL’s signature parsing. Eventually, libsecp256k1 will be used for all consensus related tasks, depreciating the need for OpenSSL entirely.
  • RPC Access Changes. RPC access now supports binary network addresses. This means that you can specify a single IP address, a CIDR network address or a netmask for accessing the RPC service. Please note, wildcard string matching no longer works and will display an error in the debug.log file when you attempt to use a wildcard string in the rpcallowip= variable, either as a config setting or launch parameter. For some examples on what has changed, please click here.

The major user-visible features that were new in Bitcoin v0.9 and v0.10 are not actually new for Litecoin v0.10 because we backported it to Litecoin v0.8 (like Coin Control).

What’s New in version v0.10.2.2?
Litecoin v0.10.2.2 is a minor release from the previous release candidate, featuring improvements and bug fixes. The changes can be seen below:


  • Added option -alerts’ to opt out of the network alert system. Please note that disabling network alerts should only be used by power users as this system is used for network emergencies and important security releases. The default behavior is that network alerts are enabled.
  • Detect and reject LibreSSL. This prevents a non-approved SSL library being used for compiling Litecoin Core, preventing potential consensus compatibility issues.
  • Improved getbalance RPC functionality to allow the user to display zero confirmation transactions (this works with watch-only addresses as well).
  • PID file bug fix for non-Windows based systems.
  • Bug fix for signing and verifying messages.


New GPG Signing Process
To enhance the security of Litecoin Core releases, we have changed the GPG signing procedure and opted for one of the Litecoin development team members to individually sign the release binaries.

Prior to this, we used a team signing key. The problem with this is that if the key were to be compromised, we would not be able to identify the member of who it was obtained from. Switching to this new procedure allows us to pinpoint the leak, revoke the individual key and leads to further decentralization of the build process.

As with any release, please use GPG to verify the integrity of the release binaries. This ensures that the binary you have downloaded has not been tampered with. Linux, MacOS and Win32 cygwin command line GPG instructions are available here. Please also note that we GPG sign the binaries as a convenience to you, the ultimate way to verify the integrity of the builds is to build them yourself using Gitian. Instructions on how to perform these builds, can be found here.

For the v0.10.2.2 release, the binaries have been signed with key identifier FE3348877809386C.

          Post Slackathon Wrap up   

It seems an eternity ago now, but just last weekend a very special event occurred: we held the inaugural Stupid-Ideas Powershell Slackathon, where people from around the planet came together to build and share frivolous things with Powershell.

You like numbers? Here's the numbers:

  • 87 people asked to join the Slackathon and were sent slack invitations.
  • 71 of those people answered their invitations and joined the slack site.

On the actual weekend people contributed:

  • 35 separate folders of powershell code that are publicly available for your reading pleasure (detailed below).
  • 45 files within the slack group (snippets, images, etc)

The publicly available contributions came from 14 different people.

One thing that surprised me was that some people didn't talk in slack at all, but quietly contributed really interesting code, which spoke volumes.

There were also 7 "profile.ps1" files that people chose to make available. These are great reading for anyone who lives by the slogan:

Live fast, die young, leave a well maintained profile.ps1 file.

And there are prizes! Prizes, yes!

People seemed to contribute for the sake of contributing, so I don't want to over-emphasize the prizes. Any contribution is a thrill. In the end I went ahead and sent a NimbleText Bundle (NimbleText + NimbleSET) to every one who contributed public code.

But to award the other sponsored prizes, I put all of the contributions (see below) into a spreadsheet and assessed them all on a range of criteria. After much deliberation, here's how the remaining prizes are distributed:

Prize for Slackathon Fever

The 'slackathon fever' prize was awarded for most contributions and highest points total. The prize for this is a copy of Douglas Finke's book: Windows Powershell for Developers (O'Reilly).

I have the envelope here. The winner is...

It's a tie! Two people with the same number of contributions and equivalent overall score:

Prateek Singh and Douglas Finke!

Well, I suspect Doug already has a copy of his own book. But he will now have to send a copy to Prateek as well.

So Wrong It's Right!

The 'so wrong it's right' prize is for misuse of technology. This was hotly contested, and I was torn between a few. I ended up awarding it to a very deserving though simple entrant: Ken Erwin, with his Favorite Drink script.

Unless the team from Chocolatey issue a protest, Ken will receive a Chocolatey Pro license.

The Toppest of the Top!

This is the big one, the toppest of the top prize also brings a Chocolatey Pro License, but on top of that you get a profound sense of shame and a permanent blotch on your resume. The winner of this was Glenn Sarti for 'Ascii Art Conversions'.

Finally, here's a list of all the contributions and who to blame. (If you want your name redacted just send me 15 bitcoin)

I wanted to write down everything I learnt, but life is just too short to dig into all that.

A few of the salient points...

Floobits is an OK place to allow people to contribute. There's a few confusing things about floobits that we had to explain over and over, now listed here.

A better name (e.g. workshop instead of hackathon), a more diverse group of organizer, and a clear code of conduct up front might've improved the diversity of the event. On gender diversity for example the event was a failure.

Slack worked really well. Avoid the temptation of playing with slack too much... you could lose days doing that if you're not careful.

Cross time-zone issues were terrible, for me in Australia at least. I basically acquired jet lag.

That's all I've got time for.

Tấn công mạng toàn cầu: Petrwrap - Mã độc tống tiền chưa từng có

Nhà sản xuất phần mềm bảo mật của Nga Kaspersky Lab nhận định Petrwrap không phải là biến thể của Petya mà là một loại mã độc tống tiền chưa từng được thấy trước đó.

Hơn 1 tháng sau khi mã độc WannaCry càn quét qua 150 quốc gia, tối 27/6 theo giờ Việt Nam, một vụ tấn công mạng đòi tiền chuộc với quy mô lớn khác lại vừa xảy ra trên phạm vi toàn cầu. Vụ tấn công có những điểm tương đồng với vụ tấn công mạng WannaCry đã ảnh hưởng tới hàng loạt doanh nghiệp tại nhiều quốc gia trên thế giới.

Nga và Ukraine là những quốc gia đầu tiên hứng chịu ảnh hưởng. Tại Ukraine, hàng loạt máy tính của Chính phủ, các ngân hàng, công ty và sân bay đã đồng loạt bị dính mã độc.

Còn tại Nga, nhiều ngân hàng cũng bị tấn công mạng trong khi tập đoàn dầu khí Rosneft thậm chí đã phải chuyển sang mạng quản lý và điều hành dự phòng đối với các quy trình sản xuất.

Chỉ vài giờ sau đó, các vụ tấn công đã nhanh chóng lan ra phạm vi toàn cầu, với hàng loạt công ty đa quốc gia tại Tây Ban Nha, Hà Lan, Na Uy, Anh, Mỹ... bị ảnh hưởng. Công ty an ninh mạng Kaspersky Lab cho biết, hiện đã có khoảng 2.000 vụ tấn công được ghi nhận.

Nhiều nạn nhân cho biết đã nhận được thông báo về việc máy tính của mình bị khóa và cần phải trả 300 USD dưới dạng tiền điện tử Bitcoin nếu muốn khôi phục lại quyền truy cập dữ liệu, tương tự như trong vụ tấn công WannaCry trước đ&o..

          What delivered the best return of 2017’s first half? Bitcoin and ethereum   
Say what you will about the cryprocurrency market in the first half of the year, but give it this: it wasn’t boring.
          Perfectly secure Bitcoin wallet generation   
Generate your own Bitcoin wallet without a computer! Never mind

EDIT: I have been informed that BIP39 derives the last word from SHA hash of all the others, and thus needs a computer to generate the seeds. Thus, this post is moot and useless. I will leave the post here as a mahnmal, in the hope that someone will find something in it useful.

EDIT 2: After the initial failure, I decided to do the next best thing, and write a short program for the ESP8266 that will generate a random seed every time it boots up and print it to a screen. That should be a good compromise, scroll down to see it.

Being the geek that I am, I find Bitcoin fascinating (if only everybody focused on something other than the price!), and hardware wallets doubly so. If you haven’t heard of them, hardware wallets are small, flash-drive-sized devices that usually connect to a computer’s USB port and hold your wallet keys. That way, even if the computer you’re trying to send bitcoins from is riddled with viruses, you remain very secure and nobody but you can pay on your behalf. Unsurprisingly, I bought one! I was between the Trezor and the Ledger Nano S, but I decided on the Nano S in the end, as their platform looks more exciting, more secure and I was quite satisfied from the two HW1s I had bought for cheap at a sale.

However, since I’m in it for the technology and cryptoparanoia, rather than for any practical purpose, I find that hardware wallets have a few issues. For a short primer, a hardware wallet’s main advantage is that the keys are generated on the device and never, ever leave it, as whoever has the keys can spend your money. Since the keys never leave the device, though, you’re screwed if you ever lose it. To avoid that, wallet designers usually allow you to do a one-time export of the keys (many devices have a screen they show you the keys on), right after creating them. The export is usually a Bitcoin standard called BIP39, and is usually in the form of 12 or 24 everyday words, which you write down on a piece of paper, store it in your safe, and that’s all that’s needed to retrieve your keys if you lose the hardware wallet. No computer ever touches the keys, and you can sleep peacefully.

The problem

My problem, though, is that I want to go full paranoia, and don’t want to trust the hardware wallet developers to generate the random keys. If they really wanted to (and they probably don’t want to, but I’m not going to bet my $100 worth of bitcoins on “probably”), they could add a backdoor to the keys that would allow them to know beforehand any key that would ever be generated with their devices, while still looking completely random to the unsuspecting user. This is “easily” avoidable if you supply your own entropy (i.e. basically give them a series of dice rolls, coin tosses, whatever source you have that’s actually random).

Now, getting randomness is easy (albeit slow) if you have a die or coin lying around, but inputting that randomness is not always easy. Most hardware wallets allow you to restore the words you have written down as your backup, which can also be used to create new keys (because they don’t actually know or care if you had these words before, they just know that the words correspond to valid keys), but they usually don’t let you roll some dice and generate the keys that way.

You can also get good randomness the easy way, by generating it on a computer, which has the added benefit that it can convert that to a list of words you can import on your wallet directly, but that means you have to use a (potentially infected, bitcoin-key-stealing) computer. One solution there is to buy a small, cheap computer (like a $30 Raspberry Pi), install an operating system on it, download the proper software, disconnect it from all networks, generate the keys and then physically destroy the computer, burn your house down with your loved ones in it. That’s the only way to be sure, but, as you can tell, it’s a hassle.

The solution Nope, just lots of wasted time

Finally, after that entire introduction, and for the two people that haven’t stopped reading already, I came up with a solution! Here it is:

Since there’s no manual way (that I know of) to convert dice rolls to keys, and since I didn’t want to use a computer for this at all, I created a way! (*Also Sprach Zarathustra plays*). I decided to simply map dice rolls to words directly, and created a PDF that you can download and print. It’s six short pages with tiny words on them (to save paper), and the way it works is easy:

You can either roll a six-sided die (my method only uses four of the sides), or a 32-sided die (which is not common, but you can use a d20 and a d12 together from your D&D dice). Each word has numbers next to it, and the numbers correspond to your dice rolls. For example, the word “pave” has the numbers 221141 in the 6-sided die column, so if you roll 2, 2, 1, 1, 4, 1 in a row, that’s the word you should use for your seed. Keep in mind that the order of the words matters.

The only rule needed, apart from the simple list above, is this: If you don’t see your number in the column that you’re currently at, reroll. This means that, if you roll a 3 as the first number for the 6-sided die, you must reroll, since there’s no 6 anywhere. Just roll until you get either a 1 or a 2, then continue.

You need six rolls per word for the six-sided (really four-sided, as rolls of 5 and 6 will be discarded and rerolled) die, and only three rolls for the 32-sided die. Since the first roll of either method needs only a 1 or 2, you can just flip a coin for the first roll.

Download the secure wallet generator PDF here.

Please let me know in the comments section or on Twitter, if the PDF didn’t print well, or if my explanation is too complicated, or if I’m stupid and should kill myself. I’d especially like to know if you used this method to great success. (EDIT: Spoiler alert: You didn’t.)

The actual solution

I figured that, since you definitely need a computer to generate a seed, and I couldn’t be bothered with an airgapped one, I would use a $3 microcontroller that doesn’t even have an OS, and only runs open source code. So, I used an easily obtainable ESP8266 and a $3 screen to show the seed on.

I wrote a MicroPython script that will generate BIP39-compatible words and display them on an OLED screen that you connect to it. The code is trivially auditable (under 70 lines) and doesn’t use networking or anything. If you feel like it, you can just burn the ESP8266 afterwards, it costs next to nothing.

The code uses the ESP8266’s (apparently high-quality) random number generator. I know, I know, if I don’t trust the wallet’s generator, why would I trust the ESP’s, but after spending many hours on the above (failed) solution, my patience is running thin. Getting entropy from 53 d32 dice rolls is left as an exercise for the reader.

The code and usage instructions can be found in the script’s GitLab repository:

I hope you at least find this useful!


          Illinois Is Venezuela & The Solution Is Cryptocurrency   

Illinois Is Venezuela & The Solution Is Cryptocurrency

Tyler Durdens picture
Jun 28, 2017 12:23 PM

Authored op-ed by Ken Kurson via The Observer,

The reason I’m so much fun at parties is that my idea of a good time is to lecture everyone on cryptocurrency. I can pretty much talk bitcoin and blockchain with Hamiltonian fervor all night.

Ever since I began writing about cryptocurrency in general in 2013—I believe this story I wrote for Esquire in fall of that year was the first ever mainstream media mention of Ripple (on whose board I now sit)— I have been making one point to anyone who will endure my “what is cryptocurrency” lecture. People are all wrong about the difference between cryptocurrency and “real money.”

By real money, people invariably mean fiat currency issued by a government. To counter the argument that “real money” is somehow safer than crypto I’ve pointed to Argentina’s 40 percent inflation rate, or the Weimar Republic, and its famous wheelbarrows full of money to buy a loaf of bread (which was arguably intentional as Germany sought to repay Treaty of Versailles debt with devalued deutsche marks).

And of course the world has watched in horror as Venezuela has devalued the bolivar to the point of meaninglessness.

These are not hypothetical examples. If you think this is all futurist theoretical BS, read up on the devastating effect hyperinflation is having as it transforms what was once South America’s most promising economy into a hellish nightmare in which people are eating their pets. Governments constantly, reliably, invariably and maddeningly ruin their own currencies by giving in to the temptation to overprint it. The beauty of bitcoin is that, like gold, the entire supply of it that will ever exist on earth (21 million coins), is known about, finite, and will never increase.

Still, as powerful as these examples are - some from recent second-world countries and others from past first-world countries - they do not vividly resonate with Americans. That makes perfect sense. The U.S. dollar, after all, has been so reliable that the very countries I am criticizing, like Argentina and Venezuela, turn to the greenback and use it as a shadow currency to store value as their own money fails.

Even when we see American commodities change dramatically in price, like we witnessed with gasoline in 2008 when it reached $4.11 in July and fell to $1.84 in January, people don’t readily seem to connect that it’s not just gasoline fluctuating but American money fluctuating. If my $10 bought 4 gallons of gas on October 1 and two gallons of gas on November 1, gas doubled in price just as the buying power of the American dollar was cut in half. It’s the same thing. (Not precisely the same, actually, but close enough for the point I’m making.)

So what I’ve been searching for in these years of evangelizing and explaining the revolutionary power of cryptocurrency—including bitcoin, ethereum, ripple, litecoin, this new one BAT that I’m interested in and others—to transform basically everything, are examples that will resonate without sounding like I’m talking about 1930s Germany or the struggles of the second world.

These last few weeks, I think I’ve got what I need. And it comes heartbreakingly from my home state.

Illinois faces financial distress that’s unprecedented for any American state. Without a budget for two years and sitting on top of over $15 billion in unpaid bills, the state is, to use a phrase that State Comptroller Susana Mendoza borrowed from Bonfire, “hemorrhaging money as the state’s spending obligations have exceeded receipts by an average of over $600 million per month over the past year.”

          Asus’s newest graphics cards definitely aren’t for gamers   
A basic graphic card is all a computer needs to display the user interface on a computer screen. For graphics-intensive tasks, such as 4K video, games, VR, and plenty of other apps, you’ll need a more powerful discrete graphics card that can deliver more processing power. However, graphics cards makers are about to launch a new generation of products that can barely connect to an external monitor. That seems to be counter-intuitive. After all, you need to be able to hook up your graphics card to a screen to actually make use of it. But it really isn’t. Graphics cards makers are simply catering to a different target, one that isn't about graphics. Cryptocurrency miners discovered years ago that mining for Bitcoin is a lot more profitable if you use a GPU. The same principles apply to newer currencies, including Ethereum and others. Which means that miners out there have been buying GPUs like crazy in the past few months, to improve their returns. The more processing power, the higher the award. Asus is one of the companies out there looking to satisfy the needs of these customers. The newly announced Mining RX 470 and Mining P106 are equivalents of the RX 470 and Nvidia GTX 1060 cards already available in stores — if you can find them. But these new models are not meant to be used for playing the latest games or running graphics intensive apps. The P106 doesn’t even have connectors so it can’t be hooked up to display, while the Mining RX 470 only has a DVI output, while the DisplayPort and HDMI ports lack connectors. The Mining P106 offers a 36% better performance at mining, and these cards are meant to operate 24/7. As Forbes notes, the cards are designed for prolonged continuous use, as they contain “high-efficiency components and reduced-friction, dual ball bearing fans that can last up to twice as long as traditional sleeve bearing fans.” The fans are also dust resistant. The Asus Mining series will be available in July, but prices have not been announced. Sapphire, and other graphics cards makers are working on similar components for cryptocurrency mining rigs.

          Petya   

Volvemos a hablar de amenazas.
De ransomware.
De ciberataques.
Se está hablando de ella como Petya pero algunos medios especializados afirman que debería ser NotPetya, ya que no es una variante sino un ransomware totalmente nuevo.
Ya son muchas las empresas afectadas a nivel internacional:
Saint Gobain, Auchan, Mars, Nivea, Maersk, Rosneft o, ojo a esto, los sistemas de monitorización de la central de Chernóbil.
Se ha originado en Ucrania, que ha sido especialmente afectada por la virulencia de este ataque, incluyendo a pilares básicos del gobierno como los aeropuertos, la red de metro, el Banco Nacional o la compañía estatal de energía.
En esta ocasión el ransomware pide un pago de 300 dólares en Bitcoin, y sigue usando la vulnerabilidad EternalBlue de la que ya hablamos en su día.
La mayor diferencia con WannaCry es que se propaga de forma mucho más efectiva, intentando usar las Herramientas Administrativas de Windows.
Particularidades / diferencias con WannaCry:
Usa la misma dirección de pago de Bitcoin para todas las víctimas.
La comunicación la solicita a través de un email que, obviamente, ha sido dado de baja por el proveedor de servicio.
Aquí sucede algo curioso y es que si alguien ha sido infectado ya no podrá ponerse en contacto con los secuestradores, así que... ¿cómo desencriptas los ficheros?
Pues eso, que tal como está planeado el ataque más parece que sea una prueba de algún tipo o sencillamente un ataque destructivo.
Si te vieras infectado verás una ventana como esta (sí, es un chequeo de disco!).

New computer virus spreads from Ukraine to disrupt world business

A new cyber virus spread from Ukraine to wreak havoc around the globe on Wednesday, crippling thousands of computers, disrupting ports from Mumbai to Los Angeles and halting production at a chocolate factory in Australia.
The virus is believed to have first taken hold on Tuesday in Ukraine where it silently infected computers after users downloaded a popular tax accounting package or visited a local news site, national police and international cyber experts said.
More than a day after it first struck, companies around the world were still wrestling with the fallout while cyber security experts scrambled to find a way to stem the spread.
Danish shipping giant A.P. Moller-Maersk (MAERSKb.CO) said it was struggling to process orders and shift cargoes, congesting some of the 76 ports around the world run by its APM Terminals subsidiary.
U.S. delivery firm FedEx Corp (FDX.N) said its TNT Express division had been significantly affected by the virus, which also wormed its way into South America, affecting ports in Argentina operated by China's Cofco.

The malicious code locked machines and demanded victims post a ransom worth $300 in bitcoins or lose their data entirely, similar to the extortion tactic used in the global WannaCry ransomware attack in May.
More than 30 victims paid up but security experts are questioning whether extortion was the goal, given the relatively small sum demanded, or whether the hackers were driven by destructive motives rather than financial gain.
Hackers asked victims to notify them by email when ransoms had been paid but German email provider Posteo quickly shut down the address, a German government cyber security official said.
Ukraine, the epicenter of the cyber strike, has repeatedly accused Russia of orchestrating attacks on its computer systems and critical power infrastructure since its powerful neighbor annexed the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea in 2014.
The Kremlin, which has consistently rejected the accusations, said on Wednesday it had no information about the origin of the global cyber attack, which also struck Russian companies such as oil giant Rosneft (ROSN.MM) and a steelmaker.
"No one can effectively combat cyber threats on their own, and, unfortunately, unfounded blanket accusations will not solve this problem," said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

ESET, a Slovakian company that sells products to shield computers from viruses, said 80 percent of the infections detected among its global customer base were in Ukraine, with Italy second hardest hit with about 10 percent.

ETERNAL BLUE
The aim of the latest attack appeared to be disruption rather than ransom, said Brian Lord, former deputy director of intelligence and cyber operations at Britain's GCHQ and now managing director at private security firm PGI Cyber.
"My sense is this starts to look like a state operating through a proxy ... as a kind of experiment to see what happens," Lord told Reuters on Wednesday.
While the malware seemed to be a variant of past campaigns, derived from code known as Eternal Blue believed to have been developed by the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA), experts said it was not as virulent as May's WannaCry attack.
Security researchers said Tuesday's virus could leap from computer to computer once unleashed within an organization but, unlike WannaCry, it could not randomly trawl the internet for its next victims, limiting its scope to infect.
Bushiness that installed Microsoft's (MSFT.O) latest security patches from earlier this year and turned off Windows file-sharing features appeared to be largely unaffected.
There was speculation, however, among some experts that once the new virus had infected one computer it could spread to other machines on the same network, even if those devices had received a security update.
After WannaCry, governments, security firms and industrial groups advised businesses and consumers to make sure all their computers were updated with Microsoft (MSFT.O) security patches.
Austria's government-backed Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) said "a small number" of international firms appeared to be affected, with tens of thousands of computers taken down.
Security firms including Microsoft, Cisco's (CSCO.O) Talos and Symantec (SYMC.O) said they had confirmed some of the initial infections occurred when malware was transmitted to users of a Ukrainian tax software program called MEDoc.
The supplier of the software, M.E.Doc denied in a post on Facebook that its software was to blame, though Microsoft reiterated its suspicions afterwards.
"Microsoft now has evidence that a few active infections of the ransomware initially started from the legitimate MEDoc updater process," it said in a technical blog post.

Russian security firm Kaspersky said a Ukrainian news site for the city of Bakhumut was also hacked and used to distribute the ransomware to visitors, encrypting data on their machines.
CORPORATE CHAOS
A number of the international firms hit have operations in Ukraine, and the virus is believed to have spread within global corporate networks after gaining traction within the country.
Shipping giant A.P. Moller-Maersk (MAERSKb.CO), which handles one in seven containers shipped worldwide, has a logistics unit in Ukraine.
Other large firms affected, such as French construction materials company Saint Gobain (SGOB.PA) and Mondelez International Inc (MDLZ.O), which owns chocolate brand Cadbury, also have operations in the country.
Maersk was one of the first global firms to be taken down by the cyber attack and its operations at major ports such as Mumbai in India, Rotterdam in the Netherlands and Los Angeles on the U.S. west coast were disrupted.
Other companies to succumb included BNP Paribas Real Estate (BNPP.PA), a part of the French bank that provides property and investment management services.
"The international cyber attack hit our non-bank subsidiary, Real Estate. The necessary measures have been taken to rapidly contain the attack," the bank said on Wednesday.
Production at the Cadbury factory on the Australian island state of Tasmania ground to a halt late on Tuesday after computer systems went down.
Russia's Rosneft, one of the world's biggest crude producers by volume, said on Tuesday its systems had suffered "serious consequences" but oil production had not been affected because it switched to backup systems.

          Americans Will No Longer be able to ask Questions about the Past?   
When it comes to the BIGGEST fraud of the 20th Century, Das Holocau$t™ anything is possible. It's illegal in most of Europe--under pain of fines and prison time--to ask questions about WW II, and the HATERS of Truth want the same billy club to use here in the USA.

One resolution, "S.Res. 118: A resolution condemning hate crime and any other form of racism, religious or ethnic bias, discrimination, incitement to violence, or animus targeting a minority in the United States," is mostly about those nasty fuckers hating Das Juden, like making threatening phone calls. (BTW, the US Congress Knesset passed this measure.)

Guess they didn't read that story that an Israeli Jew was behind more than 2,000 of those 'hate' calls, but acknowledging that would put a dent into the Jew's eternal victim status, to be pitied by all non-Jews, then to make up for all that hate by shoveling tons of free money--"to continue to offer Federal assistance that may be available for victims of hate crimes"---to the ones in on the scam of the Israelis making nasty phone calls to the US and elsewhere.

Another one, "S. 662: NO HATE Act" might become law, and all though the law is vague, one guess as to who will be getting all the $$$$ from this shakedown.

But here's where all this nonsense gets troubling, when Senator Feinstein (D-Tel Aviv) chairs a Religious Hate Crimes Committee, attended by Johann Gleenblatt of the ADL--Another Damn Lie.
Senate Corners DOJ on Surge in Religious Hate Crimes

WASHINGTON (CN) – A Justice Department official defended the agency’s commitment to prosecuting hate crimes Tuesday as the Senate pointed fingers about the surge of religious violence against Jews and Muslims.
Though racially motivated crimes still constitute the majority of hate incidents, new FBI crime statistics show that attacks against Muslims surged by 67 percent in 2015.

“In my view the rise in hate crimes is due, in part, to the perception that people in positions of power are indifferent to what’s happening, don’t prioritize the protection of the rights of all Americans and don’t speak out,” said Feinstein.

Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., rattled the special counsel by asking if the White House is sending mixed messages about hate crimes. Outlining some of the DOJ’s work against religiously motivated hate crimes, Treene noted that the agency is still investigating the recent spate of bomb threats at Jewish community centers across the country.

Particularly of concern to the ADL is the injection into mainstream American debate of what Greenblatt described as “hate-filled language, memes, stereotyping and scapegoating” through traditional and social media during the election.
Again, no mention of that Israeli Jew who made thousands of these threatening calls, and was only caught AFTER the FBI insisted on busting his operation, since the Israelis knew about the little bastard and did NOTHING

Quick recap:

The Jews began receiving hoax bomb threats in their “Jewish Centers” (which is apparently the same thing as a synagogue) back in January. These continued until earlier this month.
This was connected to ADL and SPLC reports claiming that “hate crimes” were on the rise, due to the candidacy and subsequent election of President Trump.
Also, some cemeteries were vandalized, with no one ever getting caught (one instance was later attributed to the wind).
The media made it a headline story for literally months that a crisis was taking place in America, with white Trump supporters getting ready to begin gassing Jews.
The ADL made all sorts of demands on President Trump, berating and attacking him, claiming he wasn’t doing enough to address the “hate crimes”
The Daily Stormer and David Duke made it clear that we believed that there was almost certainly a Jew behind the attacks. My own reasoning is that you would have to be very smart to make calls untraced for this long, and anyone smart enough to do that would know it would only be good for the Jews. I also reasoned that it confirmed the claims being made by the ADL and the SPLC in a way that was very convenient.
We were attacked by the media and the ADL for this, saying it was despicable that anyone would ever suggest that Jews would hoax hate crimes against themselves.
A black man was arrested for making seven or eight of the calls, and it was determined he was trying to frame his ex-girlfriend as responsible.
Donald Trump, when confronted about the prank calls, asserted that they were probably a false flag.
Donald Trump was attacked by the entire Jewish media and the Jew ADL and SPLC as a pure anti-Semite hater for having dared to suggest that Jews would do a false flag to gain sympathy.
Jews demanded the government give them billions of dollars and create a special taskforce on anti-Semitism.
How many other Israeli terrorists are making those threatening calls from the safety and comfort of Israel to Jew outfits in the USA?

Calling this terrorist 'misguided' is the kind of kid glove treatment one only sees handed out to Jews when they get caught breaking the law. If it had been some Gentile, the DHS, FBI and others would've of swooped in, machine guns ready to blast that uppity GOY to hell and gone.

The (((MSM))) can't even tell the truth about the number of 'prank' calls--as if threatening to blow a place up is consiered a prank--lying about the actual number, whittling it down to only a few hundred, when the actual number was over 2,000.
The teenager is also accused of using the internet to sell access to proprietary or sensitive data, and offered his services to place threats against locations (including police stations, schools, and airports) chosen by anonymous buyers, who paid him in cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin.

The teen hacker did not limit his for-hire activities to simple threat-making, however, as he also dealt in illegal drugs and sold software cracks to create counterfeit documentation — including visas — as well as the means to easily hack social media accounts. Recipes for poison manufacture, explosives and even content containing child pornography were found on hardware attributed to the teen.

His airline bomb threat targets included a flight carrying the Boston Celtics basketball team, and a European flight that saw jet fighters from the French Air Force scrambled as escort.

An extradition request by the United States has been turned down by Israel.
Extradition request by the US turned down by Israel? Why hell yes, they don't want that punk to get nervous and tell the truth about how many of these calls he made, and who helped him, both in Israel and the USA.

So Senator FEINSTEIN and FRANKEL, why not go after the real haters, the Jews pulling these lethal pranks to help keep them enshrined as the world's eternal victim, deserving of OUR money and rights. After all, you're not anti-Semitic, are you?

          The Latest: Ukraine Security Expert Fears For 'Whole World'

NEW YORK (AP, JUNE 27, 2017) — The Latest on a widespread cyberattack that is affecting companies and government systems (all times local): 3 p.m. The head of a top Ukranian cybersecurity firm says it's too early to say if his country was singled out as the prime target but that its institutions, long a target of Russian hackers, may have been compromised through attrition.

Victor Zhora, CEO of Infosafe IT in Kiev, says he believes the ransomware, which attacks Microsoft operating systems from Windows XP to Windows 10, was previously seeded and time-activated. "It seems the virus is spreading all over Europe and I'm afraid it can harm the whole world," he said. Zhora's firm did triage on a well-coordinated attack blamed on pro-Russian hackers that tried to thwart the country's May 2014 election.

Zhora said the current ransomware, which propagates across networks, demands $300 in Bitcoin. He says it's too early for official confirmation of the targets in Ukraine but local media are reporting ATMs and some gasoline distribution to filling stations have been affected.

Cyberattacks blamed on pro-Russia hackers have twice taken down sizeable portions of Ukraine's power grid.

2:30 p.m.

Security experts say Tuesday's cyberattack shares something in common with last month's WannaCry attack: Both spread by using digital break-in tools purportedly created by the U.S. National Security Agency and recently leaked to the web.

Security vendors Bitdefender Labs and Kaspersky Labs say the NSA exploit, known as EternalBlue, is allowing the malware to spread inside an organization's network. Other than that, the latest malware is different from WannaCry.

Organizations should be protected if they had installed a fix that Microsoft issued in March.

But Chris Wysopal, chief technology officer at the security firm Veracode, says that's only the case if 100 percent of computers were patched. He says that if one computer gets infected, the new malware has a backup mechanism to spread to patched computers within the network as well.

Wysopal says the attack seems to be hitting large industrial companies that "typically have a hard time patching all of their machines because so many systems simply cannot have down time."

Organizations hit include the Russian oil company Rosneft and the Danish oil and shipping company AP Moller-Maersk.

2:15 p.m.

A hospital and health care system based in western Pennsylvania says it is dealing with a widespread cyberattack.

A spokeswoman for Heritage Valley Health System says the attack Tuesday is affecting the organization's entire health system and employees are working to ensure safe patient care continues.

Heritage Valley is a $480 million network that provides care for residents of Allegheny, Beaver, Butler and Lawrence counties, in Pennsylvania; parts of eastern Ohio; and the panhandle of West Virginia.

It wasn't immediately clear if the cyberattack was related to the outbreak of malicious data-scrambling software that appears to be causing mass disruption across Europe Tuesday.

Also affected is New Jersey-based Merck, the second-largest drugmaker in the United States with extensive operations in the Philadelphia area.

Merck confirmed its computer network was "compromised" as part of the global attack.

(Previously datelined KIEV, Ukraine)

7:10 p.m.

The second-largest drugmaker in the United States is confirming it's been affected by a cyberattack.

In a message sent using its verified Twitter account, Merck confirmed Tuesday that its computer network was "compromised" as part of a global attack.

Officials said the Kenilworth, New Jersey-based company was investigating the incident but provided no further details.

Merck has global locations including in Ukraine, where a new and highly virulent outbreak of malicious data-scrambling software causing mass disruption across Europe appeared to be hitting especially hard.

Company and government officials reported serious intrusions at the Ukrainian power grid, banks and government offices, where one senior official posted a photo of a darkened computer screen and the words, "the whole network is down."

Dutch-based transport company TNT Express, which was taken over last year by FedEx, also said Tuesday that it is suffering computer disruptions. Spokesman Cyrille Gibot says that "like many other companies and institutions around the world, we are experiencing interference with some of our systems within the TNT network. We are assessing the situation and are implementing remediation steps as quickly as possible and we regret any inconvenience to our customers." He declined further comment.

5:45 p.m.

Ukraine's prime minister says that a cyberattack affecting his country is "unprecedented," but "vital systems haven't been affected."

A new and highly virulent outbreak of malicious data-scrambling software appears to be causing mass disruption across Europe, hitting Ukraine especially hard.

Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman also said on Facebook that "our IT experts are doing their job and protecting critical infrastructure ... The attack will be repelled and the perpetrators will be tracked down."

Company and government officials reported serious intrusions at the Ukrainian power grid, banks and government offices, where one senior official posted a photo of a darkened computer screen and the words, "the whole network is down." Russia's Rosneft oil company also reported falling victim to hacking, as did Danish shipping giant A.P. Moller-Maersk.

4:35 p.m.

Hackers have caused widespread disruption across Europe, hitting Ukraine especially hard.

Company and government officials reported major disruption to the Ukrainian power grid, banks and government offices. Russia's Rosneft energy company also reported falling victim to hacking, as did shipping company A.P. Moller-Maersk, which said every branch of its business was affected.

Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Pavlo Rozenko on Tuesday posted a picture of a darkened computer screen to Twitter, saying that the computer system at the government's headquarters has been shut down.

There's very little information about who might be behind the disruption, but technology experts who examined screenshots circulating on social media said it bears the hallmarks of ransomware, the name given to programs that hold data hostage by scrambling it until a payment is made

          Symantec comments on Petya Ransomware Attacks   
A new strain of Petya ransomware has struck Europe and is spreading around the world, affecting many organizations. Symantec has confirmed that the Petya ransomware, like WannaCry, is using an EternalBlue exploit to spread, and has published an update on its blog, including the following key details:

  • A new strain of the Petya ransomware started propagating on June 27, 2017, infecting many organizations.  Similar to WannaCry, Petya uses the Eternal Blue exploit to propagate itself.
  • Petya has been in existence since 2016. It differs from typical ransomware as it doesn’t just encrypt files, it also overwrites and encrypts the master boot record (MBR).
  • In this latest attack, the following ransom note is displayed on infected machines, demanding that $300 in bitcoins be paid to recover files:



Symantec commentary on Petya Ransomware Attack
Nick Savvides, Security Advocate, Symantec Asia Pacific and Japan

At Symantec, we see that cyber attackers are compromising businesses and individuals in Asia with continued success. While the threat may have started in Eastern Europe, it has quickly spread across the world within a short time.

Manufacturing organisations, which are highly concentrated in Asia, are particularly at risk as most do not apply updates and patches to their industrial computers as swiftly as corporate entities. This makes them especially vulnerable to rapid infections and complete shutdowns.

How does Petya compare to WannaCry?
Petya shares two similar aspects with WannaCry – firstly, it is a ransomware attack that locks up files and secondly, it is using the ETERNALBLUE (MS17-010) Windows vulnerability as an infection vector to spread inside networks.

More importantly, Petya differs from WannaCry whereby this malware goes beyond just locking up files to the whole system – rendering the victims’ computers completely inoperable. Furthermore, Petya includes other infection methods. Aside from emails, it can also spread inside networks via other mechanisms like PSExec, which allows users to execute processes on other systems without having to manually install a client software, and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI).

Here are some Symantec tips to protect consumers and organisations:

  • Keep Your Software Up-to-Date. The bad guys know about weaknesses in the software on your PC before you do. And they try to use them to get on your machine. It’s called exploiting a vulnerability. This attack searches for and exploits a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows operating systems. Computers that do not have the latest Windows security updates applied are at risk of infection.
  • Use Security Software – New ransomware variants are popping up all the time. Unless you know a well-trained professional who can keep an eye on your devices and watch your online activity 24/7, consumers should employ a security solution to do the monitoring and protecting for you. Norton Security helps protect against Petya via a variety of built-in protections.
  • Don’t Click on Attachments in Email – Email is one of the main infection methods. Be wary of unexpected emails especially if they contain links and/or attachments and be especially wary of a Microsoft Office email attachment that advises you to enable macros to view its content. Unless you are absolutely sure that this is a genuine email from a trusted source, do not enable macros and instead immediately delete the email.
  • Back-up Your Files – Backing up important data is the single most effective way of combating ransomware infection. Attackers have leverage over their victims by encrypting valuable files and leaving them inaccessible. If the victim has backup copies, they can restore their files once the infection has been cleaned up. No one ever thinks anything bad will happen to them, until it does. Everyone knows they need to back up their files. Now you have one more very good reason to do it.
  • Don’t Pay the Ransom – People assume they’ll automatically get their files back if they pay the ransom. You likely will get you files back if you pay. But you may not. Since the attackers already know you’ll pay the ransom, they could target you for future attacks.

          Bitcoin donations to a $16 billion charitable fund are soaring   

Screen Shot 2017 06 28 at 4.33.06 PM

Bitcoin is red hot these days. The price of the cryptocurrency is up about 140% since the beginning of this year. And now it looks like bitcoin's popularity among the charitable is also on the rise. 

According to the recently released Fidelity Charitable 2017 Giving Report, donations made in bitcoin to Fidelity Charitable, a $16 billion donor-advised philanthropic fund, grew to about $9 million in the first half of 2017. That's about $2 million more than what bitcoin donors contributed in 2016.

The report paints a picture of the nearly 150,000 people who donate to the fund in order to illustrate trends in charitable giving, according to Fidelity Charitable's site.  

Donors to the fund have been able to give in bitcoin since 2015, according to a media representative at Fidelity, after joint collaborations between Fidelity Charitable and Fidelity Labs, Fidelity's emerging technology incubator. 

Fidelity's CEO Abigail Johnson is a bitcoin enthusiast. In May, The Wall Street Journal reported that Johnson voiced her support of the cryptocurrency in a speech at a conference hosted by CoinDesk, a cryptocurrency news site.

“Some of you might be wondering: Why am I here today?” Johnson said, according to the Journal."I’m here because I love this stuff... all that the future might hold.”

Not everyone in the financial world is as bullish as Johnson. Morgan Stanley, for instance, recently said that merchants don't think cryptocurrencies like bitcoin have a viable future. Here's Morgan Stanley:

"Most regulators and investors view cryptocurrencies more as assets than actual currencies. Their values are too volatile and too hard to actually use for payment for most to consider them currencies. Our conversations with some merchants indicate that, while cryptocurrencies might actually be attractive for them to operate their businesses, they find that the cryptocurrencies are far too volatile to be used."

Other obstacles to bitcoin, according to the bank, include the Chinese crackdown on mining bitcoin and declining trading volumes

          Manjakan Anak, Beyonce Sewa Rumah Rp 5,3 Miliar per Bulan   

Setiap orang tua pasti ingin anaknya bisa mendapat fasilitas terbaik dalam hidupnya. Termasuk pasangan selebriti terkenal Beyonce dan Jay Z yang baru melahirkan kedua anak kembarnya.

Demi bisa memberi fasilitas dan kebutuhan kelas atas bagi ketiga anaknya, kedua selebritii papan atas ini dikabarkan rela menghabiskan biaya hingga US$ 400 ribu atau Rp 5,3 miliar per bulan untuk biaya menyewa rumah di kawasan Malibu.

Rumah yang disewa Beyonce dan Jay Z tersebut memiliki 14 kamar mandi, 10 kamar tidur dan sebuah kolam renang luas bernama La Villa Contenta.

Seperti dilansir dari hollywoodlife.com, Kamis (29/6/2017), dengan biaya yang amat besar banyak pihak menduga bahwa Beyonce dan Jay Z akan segera membeli rumah di kawasan elit itu. Namun hingga kini, belum ada konfirmasi dari keduanya.

Rumah dengan luas 2,5 hektar tersebut juga dilengkapi dengan beberapa fasilitas lain seperti kebun bunga mawar dan rumah kedua yang dikhususkan untuk para pembantu. Beyonce dan Jay Z merencanakan untuk tinggal di rumah tersebut hingga akhir bulan Agustus nanti.

Ini bukanlah kali pertama pasangan selebriti miliarder tersebut mengeluarkan uang dalam jumlah besar bagi buah hatinya. Sebelum anak kembarnya lahir, Beyonce menghabiskan uang hingga US$ 500 ribu atau setara dengan Rp 6,65 miliar (estimasi kurs 13.300 per dolar AS) untuk membangun kamar bagi calon anak kembarnya.

Kamar bayi tersebut memiliki luas setara dengan taman rumah Beyonce di Los Angeles, Amerika Serikat. Kamar tersebut juga dibuat dengan menggabungkan dua kamar besar yang ada di rumah mereka.

Anak kembar Beyonce dilaporkan lahir prematur beberapa minggu yang lalu. Meski begitu, belum diketahui bagaimana proses persalinannya secara rinci. Diduga, keduanya berada di bawah lampu setelah terlahir ke dunia.

          NSA Hacking Group Hacked, Private Tools Leaker by “The Shadow Brokers”   

A group of hackers going by the name “The Shadow Brokers” claims to have penetrated an NSA-backed hacking operation, and has leaked a bunch of hacking tools it claims is from the NSA. But that’s not all: the Shadow Brokers claim to have much more data, and are currently hosting a Bitcoin auction to sell it off to the highest bidder.

The hackers claim to have penetrated something called the “Equation Group,” a hacking organization widely believe to be the NSA. A sampling of the stolen files already posted shows similarity between the files and information revealed about the NSA’s hacking operations in the Snowden leaks.

The files mostly appear to be hacking tools and scripts, although it’s unclear how much the hackers made off with. Their announcement on Pastebin specifically keeps the details of the stolen files a secret, since “Equation Group not know what lost. We want Equation Group to bid so we keep secret.”

The big question is obviously whether the data is legit. The overt grab for money means this could just be a fake; post a bunch of promising-looking files and screenshots, and then hold an anonymous Bitcoin auction for the rest. The NSA makes sense as a target here, as there’s minimal information known about the Equation Group already, and the NSA is unlikely to comment too publicly on the hack.

If it proves to be true, this would be one of the highest-profile and most serious hacks in years. Otherwise, it’s just a neat fake, and a very bold plan to make quick cash.

          Pokemon Go Tips For Intelligence Professionals   
Damn things are all over the office now!
There is no way any reader of this blog has not heard of Pokemon Go at this point.  This smart phone based augmented reality game gained more users than Twitter in less than a week. 

There has been a lot of concern in the press and elsewhere about both privacy and security. Obviously, the best way to stay secure is to simply not to play.  This may be a mistake.  As the first mainstream augmented reality application, Pokemon Go provides a real insight into what the technology does and doesn't do.  

Just as the auction house in World of Warcraft influenced online currencies such as bitcoin, the world of Pokemon Go will inevitably shape augmented reality applications in the future.  Not playing is similar to refusing to travel to another country simply out of security concerns - it might be warranted but don't expect your analysis of a country to be very good if you have never been there.

Even if you have no interest in playing, others you know will want to.  Under these circumstances, it seems logical to think about what are the best practices for maintaining both personal safety and cyber security.

One of my contacts (Thanks!) within the intel community put together a tip sheet for friends and family and, having read it, it sounds like good advice for anyone who wants to play Pokemon Go with a reasonable level of safety and privacy.  Remember, it is a tip sheet and is designed to be helpful, not comprehensive.  If it is not covered here, just remember D2S2– Don’t Do Stupid Stuff. 

  • Only download the official version of the Pokemon GO application from the developer (Niantic), from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store. 
  • GPS and a data connection (either WiFI or cellular (30/4G) data) arc required in order to play. Avoid playing in any areas where you don't want to be geo-tagged. 
  • Don't use your personal Gmail account to log in, as this not only links your personal information with your Pokemon GO activity (which includes GPS data), it could also expose your Google credentials to the app owner. Although security holes have been patched, previous versions of the app required extensive permissions to your Google account: make sure your app is up to date. Either create a Pokemon Trainers Club account or create a "throw-away" Gmail account to use specifically for this purpose. 
  • Use a trainer name (screen name) that is not already associated with you through other sources (other online games, online communities, etc.) and does not contain any personal information (part of your real name, birthday, etc.). Currently you cannot view other players or information about other players through the interface, except the trainer name and Pokemon name at gyms or the trainer name who places lures at Pokestops. However, this feature may be added in the future. 
  • Be mindful of your surroundings when using this augmented reality (AR) mobile game, especially when taking pictures of Pokemon during the capture process. Note what's in the foreground and background, including reflective surfaces and information revealing identity and or location (street signs, vehicle license plates, Government buildings, etc.). Disabling AR makes Pokemon easier to catch! The location where you take a picture of a Pokemon is also likely embedded in the picture's metadata. 
  • When physically visiting Pokestops and gyms, maintain awareness of your surroundings. Travel with a buddy or remain in your vehicle with the doors locked.  It is not necessary to physically enter the real-world establishment where a Pokestop or gym is located, you may be able to interact with the Pokestop/gym from the curb or even across the street.

Unternehmen in aller Welt werden Opfer einer zweiten großen Cyber-Attacke innerhalb weniger Wochen. Experten rätseln nun über die Motive der Angreifer. Auch wenn der Trojaner nach einem Lösegeld verlangt, scheint Geldgier nicht das wahre Motiv zu sein.

Hintergrund der aktuellen Cyberangriffe unklar

Banken, ein Flughafen, eine der weltgrößten Reedereien und die Strahlungsmessung an der Atomruine Tschernobyl – die neue Attacke eines Erpressungstrojaners griff zwar nicht so flächendeckend um sich wie „WannaCry“ Mitte Mai. Aber die Liste der Opfer ist furchteinflößender. Der zweite Angriff binnen gut sechs Wochen führt einmal mehr vor Augen, wie verwundbar die vernetzte Welt sein kann. Und dass sich selbst Großkonzerne, die viele Millionen für ihre Sicherheit ausgeben, nicht sicher fühlen können. Bei global agierenden Unternehmen wie der Reederei Maersk hat das dann auch weltweit spürbare Folgen, wenn etwa Container nicht entladen werden.

Die neue Attacke wirft viele Fragen auf. Über welche Wege genau breitete sich die Erpressungssoftware aus, dass es diesmal viele Unternehmen, aber wenige Verbraucher traf? Warum scheinen die Angreifer im Gegensatz zu typischen Internet-Kriminellen so wenig an den Lösegeldzahlungen interessiert zu sein? Wer könnte dahinterstecken?

Ukraine mit den meisten Angriffen

Was man weiß, ist, dass es die Ukraine zuerst und am härtesten traf. Der dortige Steuersoftware-Anbieter Me-Doc gilt bei einigen IT-Sicherheitsexperten als „Victim Zero“ – das erste Opfer, über das sich die Infektion ausbreitete. Möglicherweise über ein manipuliertes Update der Me-Doc-Software. Das könnte zumindest erklären, warum es in dem Land ein Unternehmen nach dem anderen traf. Die Software verschlüsselt die Festplatte von Computern und fordert Lösegeld für die Freischaltung.

„Die wollten Sachen absichtlich stören.“

Das ist ein lukratives Geschäft, das Internet-Kriminellen hunderte Millionen Dollar einbringen kann. Doch der Angriff von Dienstag war schon ungewöhnlich, weil die enorme Durchschlagskraft der Schadsoftware mit einer seltsamen Nachlässigkeit beim Geldeintreiben gepaart war. Opfer sollten sich nach dem Bezahlen per E-Mail bei den Angreifern melden. Die Adresse beim deutschen Mail-Dienst Posteo wurde – wie auch nicht anders zu erwarten war – schnell blockiert. Bis Mittwochmittag zeigte die Bitcoin-Börse der Angreifer gerade einmal 42 Geldeingänge ein. So gehe man nicht vor, wenn man Geld verdienen wolle, ist Helge Husemann von der IT-Sicherheitsfirma Malwarebytes überzeugt. „Die wollten Sachen absichtlich stören.“

Weltweit zählte Malwarebytes zum Mittwoch 18.000 Infektionen in rund 80 Ländern. Wie schon bei „WannaCry“ diente die eine einst vom US-Abhördienst NSA ausgenutzte Schwachstelle in älteren Windows-Betriebssystemen als ein Einfalltor. Es sei zwar traurig, dass auch nach dem „WannaCry“-Weckruf immer noch nicht alle die Lücke per Update geschlossen hätten, sagt Husemann. „Aber wenn dieses Ding vor sechs Wochen losgegangen wäre, hätte ,WannaCry‘ dagegen wie ein Kinderstreich ausgesehen.“ Ein einziger Computer im Unternehmen könne reichen, um ein ganzes Netzwerk zu infizieren. Und immerhin hatte „WannaCry“ mehrere hunderttausend Rechner erfasst.

Die Tür für Angreifer steht vielerorts weiter offen: Der Antivirus-Spezialist Avast entdeckte bei einem Sicherheitscheck vergangene Woche noch 38 Millionen PCs, auf denen die Schwachstelle nicht gestopft war. Unternehmen weltweit müssten sich gegen ähnliche künftige Angriffe rüsten, betonte der Computer-Konzern IBM.

In Deutschland bringt die Attacke wieder die Debatte um die Staatstrojaner-Pläne der Bundesregierung auf den Plan. Der Bundestag hatte erst vergangene Woche mit den Stimmen der großen Koalition ein Gesetz verabschiedet, das es Ermittlungsbehörden erlaubt, Geräte Verdächtiger zu infizieren. Ziel sei, auf Krypto-Kommunikation etwa per Whatsapp zugreifen zu können, bevor sie verschlüsselt oder nachdem sie entschlüsselt wird.

Experten warnen schon lange, dass ein solches Vorgehen die Sicherheit für alle senken könne, wenn die Behörden dafür Schwachstellen horten, statt sie schließen zu lassen. „Staatliche Stellen müssen alles dafür tun, damit solche Lücken schnellstmöglich geschlossen werden“, forderte der Grünen-Bundestagsabgeordnete Konstantin von Notz. Auch Husemann von Malwarebytes zeigt sich überzeugt, dass „das Spiel weitergehen“ werde, solange sich das Vorgehen der Behörden nicht ändere.

Ungewöhnlich ist diesmal auch, dass IT-Sicherheitsforscher sich uneins sind, mit was genau sie es hier überhaupt zu tun haben. Erst wurde die Schadsoftware für eine Variante des seit vergangenem Jahr bekannten Erpressungstrojaners „Petya“ gehalten, dann kam die russische IT-Sicherheitsfirma Kaspersky zu dem Schluss, dass es doch ein neues Programm sei und taufte es erst in „NotPetya“ und dann in „ExPetr“ um. Malwarebytes nennt es wegen einiger Ähnlichkeiten „Petya-esque“ und Konkurrent Bitdefender griff gleich zum neuen Namen „GoldenEye“, wie seinerzeit im James-Bond-Film. dpa

          Bitcoin Mining - We can help   
You’ve all heard about Bitcoin – The new electronic trading currency that has taken the world by storm in 2013. At present the currency is relatively unknown, and there’s a lot of controversy regarding its security, but for the few people who are mining Bitcoins this can be an incredibly profitable business. We have supplied various high-end servers for customers recently that are in effect traditional hardware, but include high-end modified GPU based mining cards. Currently our customers are using GPU’s from NVidia, however there are now newcomers to the market with purpose engineered cards, from the likes of Butterflylabs. Their current flagship model provides up to 600 GigaHash’s per second, which is almost double of what the high-end GPU’s can offer. We recently assembled a small farm of these systems for a customer (22x of these machines), each of which has 4x of the Butterflylabs 600GH Mining Cards installed. These cards are loosely bards on the NVidia Tesla cards, but internally modified with their own coding to be purpose built for Bitcoin Mining. Each of these systems was based on a Supermicro based chassis, and Asus internals. We don’t have any photographs of video of these builds unfortunately as we had a tight 3 week timescale to fully assemble, stress test and dispatch these systems. The components used for each machine were as follows; Supermicro SuperChassis 747TG-R1400B-SQ  This chassis has a 1400W Dual Redundant 94% Platinum Efficiency PSU. The high wattage was required to sufficiently drive the 4x Butterflylabs cards, which at peak draw up to 300W each. Whilst this chassis is a Supermicro model, it is fully compatible with a standard ATX motherboard, accepting sizes from Micro ATX through to full size EATX. It will also accept the special Supermicro extended quad CPU boards if required. The main reason for choosing this chassis is the 8 slot PCI backplane, allowing 4 cards to be installed, plus the improved cooling internally, designed for GPU rendering systems. Internally within the chassis is an 8-bay hot-swap SATA/SAS area. This wasn’t used for this specific customer. Asus P9X79E-WS Intel X79 Motherboard This motherboard was chosen for its 4x PCIe 16x slots, allowing 4x of the Butterflylabs cards to be used. The board was coupled with an Intel Core i7-4820K. For Bitcoin mining the system doesn’t need a particularly powerful CPU, as all of the processing is done on the specialist add-on cards. The customer however did want to re-purpose the systems at a later date if required, so the Intel i7 CPU would allow them to do this without major upgrades. There are various other components that went into this system, such as good quality 16GB Kingston RAM kits, but the basic components are listed above. The above system is a quick example of a Bitcoin mining server. We have supplied other systems that are GPU free, and use the CPU only for processing. This is a much slower process, but it means cheaper components can be used initially. If you would like to discuss your requirements or would like to talk to a member of our sales team about Bitcoin mining, please contact us or give us a call on 0800 652 1649. We would be happy to help.

          Manjakan Anak, Beyonce Sewa Rumah Rp 5,3 Miliar per Bulan   

Setiap orang tua pasti ingin anaknya bisa mendapat fasilitas terbaik dalam hidupnya. Termasuk pasangan selebriti terkenal Beyonce dan Jay Z yang baru melahirkan kedua anak kembarnya.

Demi bisa memberi fasilitas dan kebutuhan kelas atas bagi ketiga anaknya, kedua selebritii papan atas ini dikabarkan rela menghabiskan biaya hingga US$ 400 ribu atau Rp 5,3 miliar per bulan untuk biaya menyewa rumah di kawasan Malibu.

Rumah yang disewa Beyonce dan Jay Z tersebut memiliki 14 kamar mandi, 10 kamar tidur dan sebuah kolam renang luas bernama La Villa Contenta.

Seperti dilansir dari hollywoodlife.com, Kamis (29/6/2017), dengan biaya yang amat besar banyak pihak menduga bahwa Beyonce dan Jay Z akan segera membeli rumah di kawasan elit itu. Namun hingga kini, belum ada konfirmasi dari keduanya.

Rumah dengan luas 2,5 hektar tersebut juga dilengkapi dengan beberapa fasilitas lain seperti kebun bunga mawar dan rumah kedua yang dikhususkan untuk para pembantu. Beyonce dan Jay Z merencanakan untuk tinggal di rumah tersebut hingga akhir bulan Agustus nanti.

Ini bukanlah kali pertama pasangan selebriti miliarder tersebut mengeluarkan uang dalam jumlah besar bagi buah hatinya. Sebelum anak kembarnya lahir, Beyonce menghabiskan uang hingga US$ 500 ribu atau setara dengan Rp 6,65 miliar (estimasi kurs 13.300 per dolar AS) untuk membangun kamar bagi calon anak kembarnya.

Kamar bayi tersebut memiliki luas setara dengan taman rumah Beyonce di Los Angeles, Amerika Serikat. Kamar tersebut juga dibuat dengan menggabungkan dua kamar besar yang ada di rumah mereka.

Anak kembar Beyonce dilaporkan lahir prematur beberapa minggu yang lalu. Meski begitu, belum diketahui bagaimana proses persalinannya secara rinci. Diduga, keduanya berada di bawah lampu setelah terlahir ke dunia.

          ALERTA: eliax explica el WannaCrypt y cómo protegernos (ACTUALIZADO)   
Fuente: eliax.com

WannaCrypteliax, para mentes curiosas...He aquí una explicación (y solución) que acabo escribir para DevelopersX.com para el tema del ransomware llamado "WannaCrypt" o "WannaCry" que atacó a todo el mundo en estos días pasados (esto es muy importante prestarle atención ya que el tema de seguridad aun no está cerrado y hay que protegerse urgentemente).


¿Cuál es el problema?
En días pasados un malware hizo estragos infectando máquinas con Windows en todo el mundo, y su modo de actuar es el de cifrar ("encriptar") todos los datos de tu PC con una clave que solo conocen los hackers y después pedirte un rescate de US$300 a US$600 dólares para que te liberen tus datos.

A este tipo de ataque se les llama "ransomware" que en español sería algo como "programa maligno basado en secuestrar tu información y pedir un rescate" (el inglés, como pueden notar, a veces es mucho más compacto que el español para fines técnicos).

Si no pagas, tus datos permanecerá para siempre cifrados y en esencia tendrás una PC con un disco duro inutilizable que solo serviría si lo formateas desde cero otra vez.

Y si pagas, te cobran en bitcoins, lo que de paso conlleva tener que lidiar con carteras digitales (y estas no son triviales de utilizar para el usuario común).

Específicamente, WannaCry te da un período de gracia de 3 días para pagar US$300 dólares, y para el cuarto día demandará US$600 dólares. Si llegas al séptimo día sin pagar, WannaCry borrará todos tus archivos y perderás tus datos para siempre.

Se estima que unas 57,000máquinas fueron infectadas en más de 150 países antes de detenerse el ataque temporalmente (detalles de cómo, en párrafos más abajo).


¿De dónde proviene esta vulnerabilidad?
Esta vulnerabilidad (llamada "EternalBlue" o m[as técnicamente "MS17-010") descubierta proviene de la NSA (la National Security Agency) en los EEUU, y había sido explotada por años por el gobierno de los EEUU para obtener acceso a cualquier PC con Windows del mundo que tuviera cualquier conexión a red. El software no necesita ser descargado por email, o necesita que se abra un archivo. Funciona con solo tener la PC contacto con una red en donde esté el malware (incluyendo el Internet público), y es esto lo que hace tan peligroso este malware.

Sucede entonces que unos hackers llamados "The Shadow Brokers" hicieron público este código (al estilo Wikileaks), y los hackers malignos no perdieron tiempo en darle uso.

Microsoft ya estaba al tanto de esta vulnerabilidad y hace par de meses atrás protegió a Windows 10 de este mal, y de paso para un grupo selecto de usuarios corporativos de alta envergadura que pagan un servicio de soporte especial, protegieron también todas las demás versiones de Windows hasta Windows XP.

Sin embargo después del ataque Microsoft ha sido fuertemente criticada por no hacer este "patch" (arreglo) disponible de forma gratuita y púbilca para todas las versiones de Windows anteriores, cosa que hizo posteriormente esta semana pasada.


¿Cómo se detuvo el ataque (temporalmente) y qué sucederá ahora?
Por pura coincidencia un investigador de seguridad británico notó que el malware trataba de conectarse a un dominio (una dirección en internet, como por ejemplo google.com o eliax.com o developersx.com), pero que ese dominio no existía, así que él procedió a registrarlo solo para ver qué sucedía y analizar el tráfico que enviaría el malware a ese dominio.

Sucede que en el momento que el investigador registró el dominio los ataques cesaron. Esto indicó que los hackers que hicieron el malware tenían un Plan B para detener los ataques en caso de que la situación se saliera de las manos, y este investigador por estar de curioso dio con el interruptor de apagar el ataque de forma totalmente inadvertida.

Ojo, que esto no significa que el malware no se sigue propagando, sino que ya no sigue actuando y cifrando los datos de las personas (siempre y cuando tenga conexión a Internet y detecte la existencia de ese dominio en particular que le indica no proceder).

Sin embargo, esto significa que estamos a salvo solo temporalmente de este malware, pues nada evita que los autores (u otros) modifiquen el código para crear una nueva versión que no preste atención a ese dominio, o que incluso sea más agresiva en la forma de propagarse.

Y yo al menos espero esa nueva versión muy pronto, pues existe un gran incentivo para que estos hackers continúen con esto, ya que con apenas las primeras máquinas infectadas los hackers ya han hecho más de US$50,000 dólares, y se esperaba que si el ataque no se hubiese detenido que la cifra aumentaría a posiblemente los Mil Millones de dólares según algunos estimados estadísticos.

Y si se preguntan cómo se saben estas cifras, pues se sabe debido a que con la forma de pago de bitcoins es trivial rastrear la dirección que acepta los pagos (aun esta sea anónima y nadie sepa quien la maneja), ya que la base de datos de transacciones de bitcoins es por diseño y su propia naturaleza totalmente pública y replicada en miles de servidores de Internet, y por tanto se puede saber con total exactitud cuánto dinero estos hackers están haciendo con este esquema (eso les da una idea de por qué bitcoins es tan usado por criminales como estos).


¿Cómo me protejo de este Wannacrypt (y otros similares en el futuro)?
Lo primero es que es sumamente importante hacer respaldos (backups) periódicos de tus datos, para por si ocurre algo como esto puedas al menos recuperar tus datos más recientes.

Otra opción es actualizar a Windows 10 que es una versión de Windows mucho más segura que versiones anteriores.

Otra opción es cambiarte al mundo de Apple y sus Macs, que aunque de vez en cuando también son vulnerables, no representan ni el 1% de todos los ataques que ocurren en el mundo, en donde la mayoría de ataques (literalmente el 99%) van dirigidos a Windows (o en el caso móvil, a Android).

Y otra opción es (en la medida de lo posible) adoptar más sistemas en la nube como Google Docs o GMail que mantienen todos tus datos remotos y protegidos.

Y por último, les dejo el siguiente enlace oficial de Microsoft en donde están las actualizaciones para Windows liberadas gratuitamente por Microsoft. Es URGENTE que instalen estas actualizaciones lo antes posible.

Noten que hay enlaces para las versiones en inglés de Windows, y otro grupo de enlaces para las versiones "localizadas" de Windows. Si tienen Windows en español utilicen ese segundo grupo de enlaces.

Si tu versión de Windows no aparece en la lista es porque debes utilizar el Windows Update (Actualización de Windows) que viene con tu PC para que este lo instale automáticamente.

Enlace de actualización contra el Wannacrypt

En nota aparte, noten que esto que ha ocurrido fue precisamente lo que predije ocurriría en mi predicción #58 para este año, que pueden leer en este enlace.

#eliax

Actualización 18 de Mayo 2017: Tal cual predije hace dos días, ya surgió una nueva amenaza que toma ventaja de la misma vulnerabilidad EternalBlue de WannaCry. Esta se llama "Adylkuzz" y utiliza el mismo mecanismo para infiltrar tu PC, pero a diferencia de WannaCry, lo que este nuevo malware hace es minar bitcoins en tu PC. Según estimados, el grupo de hackers que desarrolló esta versión es posible que ya haya amasado una fortuna equivalente a más de US$1 Millón de dólares.

Noten que aunque esta versión no te pide una suma de dinero ni te secuestra o daña tus datos, que utiliza el CPU (procesador) de tu PC para hacer una tremenda cantidad de cálculos pesados, lo que significa que pone a trabajar a tu PC de más, lo que significa que come parte de la memoria que otras aplicaciones pudieron haber utilizado, y de paso hace que tu PC se sienta considerablemente más lenta debido a la carga de trabajo que le pone a hacer a tu PC esclavizada de forma clandestina sin que sus usuarios sepan exactamente qué sucede.

          Predicciones y Tendencias #eliax para el 2017 (ACTUALIZADO)   
Fuente: eliax.com

eliax predicciones y tendencias 2017eliax, para mentes curiosas...Hola amig@s lectores,

Como ya es tradición, y por 12vo (¡doceavo!) año consecutivo, es hora de mi tradicional lista de predicciones y tendencias para el nuevo año, en este caso el 2017.

Y como hago en años recientes (para combatir los Trolls), les advierto que esta es una lista tanto de predicciones como de tendencias, lo que significa que verán algunas cosas en la lista que serán bastante obvias. Tomen esto más como un divertido mapa intelectual de referencia para debatir y pensar sobre lo que veremos con miras a este nuevo año ;)

Y una cosa más muy importante: A diferencia de las tendencias, el tema de las predicciones por lo general no las repito cada año pero muchas por lo general se cumplen 2 o incluso 3, 4 o 5 años después, por lo que recomiendo se den una ojeada por las predicciones anteriores (enlaces a todas ellas al final de este artículo), pues si nos llevamos de lo ocurrido en años pasados, algunas de ellas se cumplirán este año.

Así que sin más que decir, iniciemos...


1. El Apple VR
El secreto peor guardado de la actualidad es que Apple está trabajando en alguna plataforma de Realidad Virtual/Aumentada, y dado los grandes avances que están haciendo los competidores, creo que es hora que en el 2017 Apple revele tal plataforma, la cual muy posiblemente esté ligada a su nuevo iPhone del 2017 y sea anunciada alrededor de Septiembre.

En cuanto al nombre, hay varias opciones: Apple VR, iVR, iPhone VR, VR Pod, Apple Reality, iReality, iGlass, etc... (algunos de estos nombres ya han sido utilizado antes, pero Apple puede negociarlos como hizo con el nombre iOS con CISCO).

Posibilidades: 70%


2. El Apple iHome
No se cómo se terminará llamando esto, pero en esencia Apple tarde o temprano tendrá que responder y sacar un competidor al super popular Amazon Echo, el cual es por el momento solo mercadeado en los EEUU pero de los cuales ya hay 6 millones de ellos instalados en hogares de esa nación, lo que habla del potencial de esa tecnología.

Para los que desconozcan que es un Amazon Echo, es esencialmente un interfaz de voz para convertir tu hogar a un inteligente (un "Smart Home") en forma de parlante cilíndrico que se conecta a Internet y responde con el asistente te inteligencia artificial Alexa, para responderte preguntas, tocar música, controlar las luces de tu casa, etc.

Google ya respondió con el Google Home hace unas semanas atrás, y ahora le toca a Apple...

Posibilidades: 80%


3. El Nuevo iPhone (8)
Es más probable que Apple saque un nuevo iPhone cada año a que salga el Sol mañana, por lo que hasta ahí estamos todos de acuerdo. Los rumores dicen que tendrá una pantalla que cubrirá casi toda su superficie, con el sensor biométrico de huellas digitales escondido detrás de la pantalla, y posiblemente los parlantes también incrustados en la pantalla, y de paso será el primer iPhone que se cargue de forma inalámbrica sin necesidad de conectores eléctricos alambrados. Así mismo vendrían con mejores cámaras duales, e incluso alguna capacidad para Realidad Aumentada.

Se dice que uno de los nuevos iPhones tendrá un tamaño de 5", lo que podría significar o (1) que tendremos un iPhone en un tamaño intermedio entre el iPhone 7 y el iPhone 7 Plus, o (2) que en realidad estamos hablando del mismo iPhone 8/Plus que debido a que será "todo pantalla" podrá reducir su tamaño externo sin reducir el tamaño de la pantalla en sí.

Aparte de eso, hay rumores de que veremos no uno, ni dos, sino que tres nuevos modelos de iPhones, y a tal fin tengo mis propias teorías...

Una teoría, la más popular que todos comparten, es que veremos un iPhone 7S, y un iPhone 7 Plus, y un iPhone 8 para conmemorar el décimo aniversario del iPhone. ¿O quizás terminen llamando al tercer modelo el iPhone 7 Special Edition, o iPhone 7 10th Anniversary Edition?

Sin embargo me pregunto si ya no es hora de dejar los números y pasar de regreso al nombre simplemente "iPhone", y que se mercadee como "El nuevo iPhone".

Otra idea que se me ocurre y que compartí hace varios meses con ustedes en las redes sociales de #eliax es la idea de adoptar la nomenclatura de la industria de la moda, y llamar los nuevos iPhones simplemente iPhone S, iPhone M, y iPhone L, para significar Small, Medium y Large, lo que creo caería bastante bien con la mentalidad simplista y de moda que atribuye Apple a sus productos.

Posibilidades: 100% (de un nuevo iPhone 8)
85% de que tenga las características aquí descritas
50% de que adopten este sistema de nombres


4. Actualización de productos de Apple
Esperen un nuevo teclado externo e inalámbrico con la barra touch (Touch Bar) que debutó en las nuevas MacBook Pro, así como Touch ID para leerte la huella digital.

Además esperen una nueva iMac con un nuevo teclado con Touch Bar, aunque podría ser alambrado. Esta iMac quizás por fin podría tener una pantalla Touch como las Surface de Microsoft, pero no aguanten su respiración esperando por ello...

En cuanto a la MacBook Air, ya no tiene razón de existir después que salió la nueva MacBook, por lo que quizás Apple retire ese producto.

Es posible que algunas de las nuevas Macs vengan con una nueva arquitectura (como detalle unas cuantas predicciones más abajo).

Posibilidades: 75%


5. ¿Adios al iPod?
El iPod fue el dispositivo que lanzó a Apple a una nueva Era en el espacio de consumidores, abriendo la puerta al iPhone, iPad y Apple Watch.

Sin embargo, hoy día ya es irrelevante en un mundo donde toda la música la cargamos con nosotros en celulares. Así que al menos que Apple haga algo radical (como incluir iTunes HD multi-canal o algo por el estilo para ocupar un nicho de fanáticos del audio), creo que este año podría ser su fin. Me gustaría una versión especial para audiófilos (¿se dice así?).

Posibilidades: 55%


6. ¿Un Surface Phone?
Desde que salió el primer iPhone, Microsoft en el mundo móvil ha ido en declive, primero con su plataforma Windows Mobile (era demasiado complicado, tratando de entrar desesperadamente al Windows de escritorio en la palma de la mano), y posteriormente con Windows Phone (que llegó demasiado tarde cuando iPhone y Android ya estaban establecidos).

Pero la división Surface de Microsoft ha demostrado tener un equipo de diseño e ingeniera que rivaliza incluso a Apple, por lo que la empresa quizás se anime a un nuevo intento más con un Surface Phone basado esta vez en Windows 10.

Sin embargo, sus posibilidades de éxito son bajas, dada la gran complacencia que tienen los usuarios con el duopolio iPhone-Android.

Posibilidades: 55%


7. Redes sociales que suben y bajan
Vamos a condensar varias predicciones sobre redes sociales en una sola a continuación:

7.1: Snapchat, Instagram, Whatsapp y Facebook continuarán creciendo vertiginosamente.

7.2: El IPO (salida al mercado público de forma temprana) de Snapchat será sensacional, pero ya veremos si podrá aguantar los azotes de Facebook a largo plazo (lo más probable es que no, y que sea adquirida, quizás por Microsoft o Samsung, al menos que se reinvente con Realidad Aumentada o se expanda a otras áreas).

7.3: Twitter va a seguir decayendo, y quizás sea adquirida por otro gigante (Microsoft o Samsung).

7.4: La red Google+ continuará siendo mayoritariamente irrelevante, e incluso (al menos que Google haga algo drástico y efectivo) declinará mientras los usuarios prestan más atención a redes más efectivas y capten mejor su atención.

Posibilidades: 70%


8. Fitbit a ser adquirida
Ahora que Fitbit (empresa especializada en bandas inteligentes para deportes y salud) adquirió a Pebble, es probable que esta se torne apetecible a un pez más grande para adquirirla.

9. Seguridad en IoT un dolor de cabeza
El IoT (Internet de las Cosas) es una industria que incluye desde cámaras de vigilancia conectadas a Internet, hasta grabadoras de video por Internet, juguetes conectados a Internet, televisores conectados a Internet, sensores industriales conectados a Internet, y cualquier otra cosa que se puedan imaginar conectado a Internet.

Sin embargo, el 2016 demostró el gran problema de seguridad que tenemos a la mano ya que cientos (y próximamente, miles) de millones de estos dispositivos tienen seguridad inapropiada, lo que los hace un objetivo fácil para que los hackers intervengan y tomen control, creando redes de millones de dispositivos "zombie" que son posteriormente utilizados, rentados a vendidos al mejor postor (en el mercado negro de la Web Profunda o Web Oscura) para coordinar ataques de DDoS, enviar virus, troyanos, invadir otras máquinas, etc.

Este año 2016 se produjeron al menos 3 ataques a gran escala, uno de ellos ralentizando a todo el Internet global por varias horas, y otros enviando ataques que superaron los 600Gbps (600 Gigabits por segundo) de datos.

Y lo peor es, que en el 2017 veremos esto escalar exponencialmente a peores ataques...

Posibilidades: 90%


10. Legislación sobre IoT
Debido al punto anterior, vamos a ver las primeras discusiones serias (han existido informalmente, por años) a nivel legislativo sobre reglamentación para la construcción de dispositivos IoT, que garanticen al menos un grado mínimo de seguridad para ser colocados en internet. Es posible que sea la FCC de los EEUU que lidere esto eventualmente.

11. Real-time despega en redes sociales
En los últimos meses (y particularmente en las últimas semanas del 2016) los grandes del espacio de redes sociales sacaron actualizaciones que permite que las personan transmitan video en tiempo real en sus redes.

Hoy día ya es posible hacer eso con Facebook, Instagram y Twitter, para nombrar algunos. Esto se intensificará y ya será una funcionalidad básica esperada en cualquier red social seria del 2017.

Posibilidades: 90%


12. Servicio al Cliente por video
Debido a la proliferación de herramientas de video en tiempo real en redes sociales (como explicado en el punto anterior), y herramientas de comunicación que permiten hacer trivial el tema de video-llamadas (Facetime, Whatsapp, Messenger, Google Duo, etc), se hará mucho más fácil y práctico (sin mencionar, barato) que las empresas inicien a dar soporte técnico y servicio al cliente por video.

Las que inicien en esto lo harán como una ventaja competitiva y como un nuevo canal de ventas y servicios.

13. inteligencia Artificial (AI) a crecer vertiginosamente, empezando en Asistentes Virtuales
La guerra entre Apple Siri, Google Now, Microsoft Cortana, Samsung Viv, Amazon Alexa y otros (como Hound) se intensificará en el 2017, así como veremos otros competidores (que posiblemente serán rápidamente adquiridos). El campo de la AI será uno de los campos de mayor inversión en el 2017, junto a (leer próximo punto)...

Posibilidades: 100%


14. El campo de la Realidad Virtual/Aumentada/Mixta a calentarse al extremo en el 2017
El año pasado les comenté que el 2016 sería el año que la VR y AR (por sus siglas en inglés) despegarían, y el 2017 será el año en que estas tecnologías se pondrán al rojo vivo en términos de inversión.

Posibilidades: 95%


15. Realidad Aumentada todavía no pasará a Realidad Virtual
Aunque todo el mundo está de acuerdo que AR sería más importante que VR, lo dudo que ese sea el caso en el 2017 debido a la complejidad y costo de implementación de AR. La Realidad Aumentada necesita de muchísimo mayor procesamiento, de algoritmos muchos más complejos, de circuitos y sensores más avanzados (y caros), y de software altamente especializado, requiriendo mano de obra bastante experta. Por el momento las soluciones de VR son más sencillas de implementar y ya existe un mercado masivo para ellas.

Posibilidades: 80%


16. Grandes avances en Realidad Aumentada
Aunque la AR paso detrás de VR en el 2017, eso no significa que estará estancada, y al contrario veremos bastante competencia tanto en gafas de AR como en sus componentes básicos (como espejos holográficos, circuitos integrados dedicados, algoritmos de mezcla de Realidad, etc). AR seguirá creciendo vertiginosamente en paralelo a VR en el sector industrial y campos especializados como la industria médica.

17. Celulares empiezan a moverse hacia un futuro inalámbrico
El iPhone 7 dejó atrás el conector de audio tradicional analógico de 3.5mm, y se rumora que el próximo iPhone permitirá cargar inalámbricamente, y aunque de por sí solo estas no son grandes novedades (algunos modelos de celulares Android se han podido cargar inalámbricamente por años), Apple demostró la gran ventaja de su potente tecnología W1 para audio (con sus nuevos audífonos inalámbricos AirPods), de lo fácil que es enviar vídeo por AirPlay, de los sencillo que es compartir datos cércanos vía AirDrop, y se rumora que su implementación de energía inalámbrica será lo mejor y más práctico del mercado, permitiendo cargar los equipos desde distancias relativamente largas.

Todo esto pone presión al mundo Android, incentivando la competencia, lo que tendrá como efecto una rápida transición hacia todo lo que sea inalámbrico en celulares, tabletas, e incluso laptops. Estamos llegando al momento en donde equipos como celulares vendrán totalmente sellados sin conector alguno. Toda esta transición tomará unos 3 años.

18. El Samsung Galaxy S8 y Note 8, bestias de poder
Después del desastre explosivo que fue el Note 7, la empresa sabe que sus próximos equipos van a tener que ser descomunalmente potentes y funcionales para poder volver a atraer a los que dejaron su campamento talibán, así que esperen el mayor avance de Samsung en celulares y phablets con sus próximos modelos.

Esperen pantallas curvas en todos los modelos, resolución 4K en el Note 8, lectores de huellas dactilares detrás de la pantalla al igual que el próximo iPhone, parlantes estéreo como el iPhone 7, conector de audio digital como el iPhone 7, cámaras duales como el iPhone 7 Plus, y otras mejoras.

20. Amazon Alexa, el más práctico asistente digital hogareño
Aunque quizás no el más potente asistente digital , Alexa será el más práctico de todos para cosas cotidianas del hogar, desde pedir canciones y el estado del tiempo, hasta reproducir radio, buscar datos básicos y automatizar nuestros hogares. Quizás Amazon se anime y por fin saque la versión internacional de su Amazon Echo en otros idiomas...

21. El Nintendo Switch no va a ser tan popular como el Nintendo Wii
El Nintendo Switch que sale a la venta en el primer cuarto del 2017 no creo será la solución al desastre que fue el Wii U, aunque sí es posible que venda más que este, pero dudo bastante que se acerque al éxito de ventas del origina Wii, y la razón tiene que ver con que el PlayStation VR será una mejor proposición en el 2017 para aquellos jugadores que quieren algo verdaderamente diferente.

Aunque ojo, al inicio el Switch será un éxito de ventas, y todo fan de Mario y Zelda querrá uno, pero el dinero esta vez se irá más en querer probar también el PSVR que es mucho más novedoso.

23. Machine Learning se agrega al currículum básico de ingeniería de software
Para finales del 2017, la mayoría de instituciones educativas universitarias (que se consideren vanguardistas) incluirán la materia de Machine Learning (Aprendizaje de Máquinas) en sus curriculums estándar de ingeniería de software. ML será tan básico como AI (Inteligencia Artificial) y VR en esta segunda mitad de esta década en curso.

Posibilidades: 60%


24. Industria de la Salud y Machine Learning (más AI)
Para este año 2017 se hará evidente (para los que aún siguen ciegos en este aspecto) que el mercado de la industria del cuidado de la salud se verá enorme y profundamente afectado por Machine Learning e Inteligencia Artificial.

Posibilidades: 85%


25. Big Data de mano con Machine Learning Y AI
Este año también se hará evidente que Big Data va con Machine Learning y AI de la misma forma que el pan va con la mantequilla (o un mangú dominicano con salami y huevos fritos)...

Sencillamente es imposible para seres humanos analizar tantos datos con simples procesos estadísticos u hojas de Excel; necesitamos reconocedores de patrones que van mucho más allá que ecuaciones lineales con simples variables de pocas dimensiones. Estamos ya en un punto en donde vamos a tener que confiar en máquinas para interpretar y descubrir patrones en nuestros datos masivos, y muchos se sentirán incómodos con la pérdida de control humana que eso significa.

Posibilidades: 95%


26. Continúa migración masiva a La Nube
Continuando una tendencia de años recientes, en el 2017 no veremos un descanso, y al contrario veremos una adopción acelerada, de sistemas empresariales alojados en La Nube (plataformas en Internet fuera de tus premisas).

Esto incluye todo tipo de sistemas informáticos, desde alojamiento de correos y coordinación de fuerza de ventas (como con GMail y Salesforce), hasta migraciones masivas de sistemas tipo ERP en la nube (como las versiones nube de Microsoft Dynamics) o infraestructura en la nube (como los servicios de Amazon AWS). Ya no hay marcha atrás.

Posibilidades: 100%


27. La mayoría de nuevos sistemas informáticos serán Cloud-First/Mobile-First
Al menos que hablemos de novatos, o desarrolladores que se quieren apegar al pasado, para el 2017 la vasta mayoría de los nuevos sistemas informáticos estarían pensados con una filosofía Cloud-First/Mobile-First (CFMF, un término que me acabo de inventar), significando que serán diseñados desde cero pensando en ser consumidos desde la nube, y/o plataformas móviles. Las aplicaciones de escritorio serían ahora un nicho para aplicaciones muy específicas que requieren de procesamiento local (como Photoshop o AutoCAD), aunque incluso estas aplicaciones requerirán cada vez más de componentes de nube y móvil para ser más eficientes al largo plazo.

Posibilidades: 90%


28. Crecimiento de parques temáticos virtuales
Este año pasado 2016 unas cuantas empresas empezaron a experimentar con Realidad Virtual en parques temáticos, y todo me dice que en menos de 3 años la gran mayoría de estos adoptarán la VR de alguna forma u otra, incluyendo los parques tradicionales.

30. Javascript se continúa solidificando, particularmente en la nube y móviles
Gracias a Node.js y Amazon Lambda, y a frameworks móviles como Phonegap/Córdoba o el Ionic Framework, Javascript continuará solidificándose como el lenguaje de programación más importante a aprender junto a C, Java, Swift, y hasta cierta medida, Python. Incluso, Javascript poco a poco se está convirtiendo en un reemplazo para todos esos otros lenguajes, con la posible excepción de C/C++ (que continuará reinando en el nicho de "system-level software" como drivers, sistemas operativos, etc, hasta tanto se adopte más a Swift para esos fines).

31. Los IDEs en la nube despegan con la versión Facebook de Atom
Desde hace varios años vengo vaticinando la importancia que eventual tendrán los IDEs (los entornos integrados de desarrollo de software) alojados en la nube, y creo que en el 2017 por fin veremos el primer despegue semi-notable de esta tecnología (que en mi opinión será la forma de desarrollar software hacia futuro) gracias a las adaptaciones que hizo Facebook al Web IDE Atom (y que llama "Atom in Orbit"), que permite que ahora funcione 100% alojado en la nube por medio de navegadores web, y con acceso a recursos locales.

Posibilidades: 60%


32. Mundos virtuales sociales en VR por fin una realidad
Hasta ahora cuando hablamos de uno interactuar en "mundos virtuales" realmente nos referíamos a ser parte de alguna experiencia en la pantalla de una PC, laptop, tableta o incluso celular, utilizando un avatar (un personaje digital que nos representa en un mundo virtual), renderizado en 3D como la mayoría de juegos de consolas como la PlayStation e o el Xbox One, pero eso en el 2017 empezará a cambiar...

A diferencia de juegos o mundos que vemos en nuestras pantallas (como el clásico y adelantado-a-su-tiempo Second Life), ahora gracias a gafas de Realidad Virtual de bajo costo (y eventualmente a tecnologías de Realidad Aumentada/Mixta más prácticas y baratas), por fin podremos estar literalmente *dentro* del mundo virtual, el cual podría ser desde una versión mejorada de SecondLife hasta una nueva red social virtual (como vTime o Facebook VR), o desde una experiencia cinemática interactiva hasta una nueva generación de vídeo-juegos.

Posibilidades: 70%


33. Adicción a VR se empieza a notar con en PSVR
Una de las más grandes preocupaciones entre expertos de Realidad Virtual es los posibles efectos adictivos de la VR en la población.

Hasta ahora eso nunca había sido un problema debido al nicho que era la VR y al contenido relativamente limitado en existencia, pero ahora con la salida del PlayStation VR (PSVR) creo que este 2017 será el año en que veremos muchos padres protestando de que sus hijos están "perdidos" dentro del PSVR por horas muertas.

Posibilidades: 70%


34. Surge necesidad de poner un rating a las experiencias virtuales
A diferencia de una película de terror, en donde tú ves todo en una pantalla y tu persona sabe que estás simplemente viendo algo, y que de asustarte solo tienes que mirar para otro lado, con la Realidad Virtual existe un fenómeno totalmente diferente en donde tu persona literalmente se siente "dentro" de la experiencia. Eso significa que (siguiendo el ejemplo de una película o experiencia de terror) que cualquier evento psicológico es amplificando exponencialmente, lo que puede provocar emociones extremadamente fuertes, y lo peor de todo es que si miras a otro lado tu continúas dentro del mundo virtual, creando esto una sensación bastante intensa que juega con tus sentidos e instintos.

Esto va a conllevar a que tarde o temprano veamos casos de personas que sufrirán grandes daños psicológicos (o incluso físicos, en el caso de ataques cardíacos) que conllevarán a que tarde o temprano se tenga que legislar para que las experiencias virtuales sean clasificadas de forma similar a como se clasifican películas y programas de TV, con el agregado de que se tendrá que especificar claramente los riesgos que se corren al experimentar tal experiencia.

Y noten que yo mismo ya he probado varías experiencias terroríficas en VR, y les puedo asegurar que a diferencia de algunas películas, estas crearían efectos bastante potentes en mentes jóvenes o que no son aptas para este tipo de experiencias.

36. Magic Leap por fin sale al mercado, pero decepciona
Magic Leap tiene ya par de años en modo sigiloso, y amasado alrededor de US$1,000 Millones de dólares en inversionistas de alto rango, sin embargo cuando por fin salga este año es posible que decepcione y no llene las expectativas de los videos promocionales que hizo, y que no sea marcadamente superior al HoloLens de Microsoft.

37. La cocina robótica
Desde de décadas vaticinándose en la cultura popular por medio de programas de TV como Los Jetsons, y gracias a experimentos recientes, la cocina robotizada empezará a despegar en el 2017, aunque ojo, todavía no tanto en hogares, sino más bien en restaurantes y a escala industrial.

38. Noticias ficticias crecen a ser un verdadero dolor de cabeza
He aquí una estadística personal: Yo diría que aproximadamente el 70% de todas las noticias que mis amigos me envían por redes sociales y mensajería, son falsas. Y este es un problema que está pasando de ser una curiosidad (o molestia), a un verdadero problema que está teniendo graves consecuencias para toda la población.

Incluso, se estima que buena parte de reciente batalla electoral en los EEUU se peleó en Facebook, con cientos de noticias falsas favoreciendo a uno que otro candidato.

Y este problema apenas está empezando y se acentuará en el 2017, particularmente debido a que los que reciben estas noticias rara vez se molestan en revisar las fuentes, o incluso a utilizar el sentido común, prefiriendo mejor creer lo que quieren y de paso seguir esparciendo este tipo de noticias hasta convertirlas en virales, lo que de paso se ha convertido en un gran negocio para los spammers.

39. Trump vs la industria científico-tecnológica
Si Donald Trump realmente planea cumplir su palabra en estos aspectos, la industria científico-tecnológica librará una dura batalla contra el Presidente-electo de EEUU en este 2017, y al final de cuentas (sea este año o en posteriores), serán los tecnolólogos los que ganen esa batalla.

40. Trump crea inestabilidad con China
No podemos dejar de hablar de Trump sin mencionar a China, quien para los propósitos de estas predicciones y tendencias la vamos a ver como uno de las naciones titanes de la tecnología actual, y si nos llevamos de las palabras de Trump, es posible que se cree una inestabilidad económica mientras ambas naciones se preparan para mostrar quien tiene los testículos más grandes a la hors de negociar.

41. La automatización va a crear nuevos tipos de empleos
El 97% de los analistas dicen que conforme continuemos automatizando todo, que se perderán más empleos humanos y que nos acercamos a una grave crisis laboral. Yo soy de la minoría que opina que nuevos tipos de empleos se crearán, que la fuerza laboral si declina será solo temporalmente (hasta que una nueva generación pueda ser entrenada en nuevos tipos de empleos rápidamente, gracias a tecnologías como la VR), y que al final todo estará bien. Llámenme optimista.

43. Uber imparable
Uber seguirá su expansión global, y los taxis continuarán quejándose (nada nuevo aquí). Veremos de paso a varias empresas de taxis sacando Apps similar a la de Uber, y otras incluso adoptando un modelo de negocio similar al de Uber. Sin embargo para la mayoría será demasiado tarde.

Posibilidades: 85%


45. Microsoft Azure a ser el competidor principal de Amazon AWS
La plataforma Microsoft Azure (y no los servicios de Nube de Google) se verá como el principal competidor de Amazon AWS, aunque continuará en un segundo lugar debido a la gran ventaja en años, experiencia, confianza de clientes e inversión e infraestructura que le lleva Amazon. Sin embargo aun así, Microsoft Azure tendrá un crecimiento estelar en el 2017.

Posibilidades: 80%


46. Apple iMessage en Android

47. Anuncios en Facebook continúan haciendo daño a los anuncios de Google
Hace años que la plataforma de Facebook la considero más efectiva que la de Google en muchos aspectos en términos de colocación de anuncios, pero ya para el 2017 se hará evidente que el crecimiento de Facebook en este espacio será tal que por primera vez le empezará a ocasionar serios daños a los ingresos de Google AdSense/AdWords, lo que podría eventualmente afectar el valor de las acciones de la empresa.

48. El Alexa Phone
¿Recuerdan el celular de Amazon que predije tan pronto lo vi que sería un desastre debido a su precio y funcionalidad, y que fue cancelado apenas semanas después debido a su extremadamente mal recibimiento en el mercado? Pues creo que el momento está apropiado para que Amazon utilice su marca Alexa para hacer un nuevo intento con un celular más sencillo, de más bajo costo (por debajo de US$199 dólares), y con su diferenciación estelar siendo el asistente digital Alexa. Sin embargo aunque creo el tiempo es apropiado, es también posible que Amazon prefiera concentrar sus esfuerzos mejor en otros productos con Alexa que no sean celulares.

49. Apple reemplaza Intel x86 por ARM en algunas de sus Macs
Apple es una empresa que le gusta controlar todo su ecosistema, y una dependencia que tiene actualmente es la de sus procesadores en su linea Mac, los cuales dependen de su proveedor Intel y la arquitectura x86, pero como he vaticinado por años aquí en eliax, en algún momento Apple haría sus procesadores seria ?A? tan potentes que estos podrían reemplazar lo mejor de Intel, particularmente al atar a estos íntimamente con macOS, y creo que el momento propicio para ellos es precisamente este 2017, en donde Apple podría transicionar o toda su linea o al menos su linea de MacBooks a estos procesadores con arquitectura ARM.

Habría que ver si Apple dependería de terceros para que simplemente recompilen sus Apps para que funcionen con macOS ARM, or si proveerá algún tipo de emulación x86 para aplicaciones ?clásicas?.

Una ventaja que tiene Apple es que podría obtener un mismo chip con 8 o incluso 16 o 32 núcleos (para modelos ?Pro?) a un precio similar o menor que un procesador Intel de 2 o 4 núcleos, de paso incluyendo en estos chips circuitos especializados para acelerar funciones específicas del sistema operativo para hacer de estos en la práctica tan rápidos o más rápidos que chips de Intel.

51. Chatbots de Inteligencia Artificial en los Call Centers
Conforme aumenta la inteligencia, eficiencia y especialización de los chatbots (programas de chat que chatean o hablan contigo como si fueran seres humanos), estos empezarán a desplazar trabajos humanos de los Call Centers, ahorrando costos y ofreciendo un servicio más rápido y eficiente (no porque el chatbot sea más rápido o eficiente, sino porque es posible lanzar cientos o miles de ellos a la vez para así no hacer esperar a los clientes en lineas de llamada o pantallas de chat). Y como sub-predicción, veremos por el momento muchos humanos quejándose de que prefieren hablar mejor con un ser humano?

Posibilidades: 65%


52. Whatsapp aumenta el dolor de cabeza de las empresas de telecomunicaciones tradicionales
Como vaticinado en varios artículos anteriores acá en eliax, y en mis charlas, estamos rápidamente llegando a un punto en donde las compañías tradicionales de telecomunicaciones (que ofrecen teléfonos alambrados, servicios a celulares, internet, y TV por cable) empezarán a perder sus mayores fuentes de ingresos y empezarán a transformarse en empresas que simplemente moverán datos por la red.

Esto se debe a que programas modernos de mensajería ya están haciendo casi innecesario el hacer llamadas de larga distancia por los medios tradicionales, así como hace tiempo ya hicieron obsoleto el mercado de los minimensajes SMS/MMS. Y como si fuera poco, servicios como Netflix, Amazon Video, HBO Go, Hulu y iTunes están poco a poco terminando la dependencia de TV por cable.

Pero el golpe más duro quizás va a ser la creciente adopción de llamadas de voz y video por Whatsapp, que poco a poco se está convirtiendo en el estándar por defecto para la comunicación global inter-plataforma.

Y a propósito, me gustaría que llegara el tiempo cuando Whatsapp ya no depende de números celulares para la identificación de sus usuarios, y que mejor opte por un nombre similar a los utilizados en Twitter.

53. Drones todavía no despegarán en el mercado de entrega rápida
Aunque empresas como Domino y Amazon ya han realizado demostraciones de entrega de comida y artículos electrónicos por vía de drones, todavía faltan muchos obstáculos por resolver (desde temas de baterías, hasta temas de la seguridad de los drones), y no veo factible la tecnología por el momento para lanzamientos prácticos en consumidores, particularmente a gran escala, al menos no en el 2017.

54. Drones para servicios de emergencia
Sin embargo (siguiendo el punto anterior), un área en donde los drones ya podrían utilizarse desde ya en ambientes prácticos, es para servicios de emergencias, como por ejemplo para labores de identificación y reconocimiento en zonas de desastre, hasta entrega de medicinas urgentes, y en el 2017 veremos más avances y pruebas en estos aspectos en varios lugares del mundo.

62. Social Media como un departamento estándar en las empresas
Hoy día el concepto de Social Media es tratado como un simple subconjunto o de Relaciones Públicas o de Mercadeo, pero como se está haciendo evidente desde hace tiempo estamos llegando al momento en donde las empresas se darán cuenta que necesitan de todo un departamento solo para manejar este concepto en sus empresas, dada la importancia que tienen las redes sociales hoy día en la interacción con clientes. Incluso veremos equipos de transformación digital que se encargarán de ayudar a las empresas a dar los pasos necesarios para lidiar con esta nueva realidad.

Kodi hoy día es la plataforma que permite descargas ilegales quizás más popular para ver películas pirateadas por Internet, y aunque es un tanto complicado configurarlo la primera vez, después del hecho su uso es bastante sencillo (muchos lo consideran incluso más sencillo que Netflix en algunos aspectos), permitiendo que las personas que no desean esperar a que lleguen las películas a sus mercados, o que no quieran pagar sumas exhorbitantes en cines, o que quieran versiones subtituladas de sus películas favoritas, puedan hacerlo de forma sencilla. Este modelo de sencillez obligará a los estudios a que reformen su forma de distribuir películas, hacia un concepto más global y estandarizado, sin embargo este proceso podría tardar años.

68. Inteligencia Artificial contra el malware
Malware (programas malignos como virus, troyanos, ramsonware, etc) es cada vez más numeroso y sofisticado, y estamos en un punto en donde estos programas ya evolucionan por si mismos para no ser detectados, lo que hace la labor humana para detectarlos cada vez más difícil, así que veremos el crecimiento de un mercado que utilizará IA (particularmente con el tema de Machine Learning) para detectar de forma automatizada patrones de software que podrían ser malignos, y detenerlos antes de que hagan daño.

69. Primeros pasos de la revolución en cargamento con camiones autónomos
Así como vimos una revolución con Uber en sistema de taxis, así veremos una revolución nacer en el mercado del transporte de carga (por medio de camiones con furgones) por medio de camiones automatizados con conductores/choferes humanos. Esto permitirá un sistema mucho más eficiente y seguro de transporte, sin los peligros de conductores que se duermen en el camino, o que se roban la mercancía, o que llegan tarde a sus destinos. Esperen las huelgan de los gremios de tales industrias similar a lo que le pasó a Uber.

71. Blockchain, no bitcoins
Como predije el año pasado (y previamente en mis charlas de años anteriores), quiero hacer énfasis otra vez este año (dada su importancia y los próximos puntos a continuación), que el gran adelanto del Bitcoin no fueron los bitcoins mismos, sino su protocolo Blockchain (?Cadena de Bloques?) que hizo posible los bitcoins (y otras monedas y modelos de transacciones) en primer lugar, y será el uso de Blockchain lo que continuará el modelo de innovación en el campo financiero (y otros campos) hacia futuro.

Startups (en este caso, nuevas empresas de índole tecnológico) que se concentren en la tecnología Blockchain empezarán a valer muchos millones de dólares y a ser adquiridas rápidamente tal cual sucedió alguna vez con empresas especializadas en otros nichos en crecimiento. (como VR, AR, ML y AI)

Posibilidades: 85%


74. Los inicios de aplicaciones distribuidas con Blockchain
En el 2017 veremos mucha experimentación en aplicaciones verdaderamente distribuidas por Internet utilizando como base el concepto del Blockchain, y en ese espacio la empresa que empezará a mostrar el camino será Ethereum.

77. Primera impresora 3D por menos de US$99
Ya tenemos impresoras 3D por menos de US$250 dólares, pero estoy seguro que alguna empresa (quizás una bajo el radar) debe estar pensando en crear una sencilla impresora 3D que cueste US$99 dólares. ¿Cómo? Pues no necesariamente haciendo dinero en la impresora, sino más bien en los materiales de impresión. Me imagino que tal empresa debería también incluir alguna herramienta en forma de App que permite hacer objetos de forma bastante sencilla, o al menos personalidad objetos pre-existentes. Si no vemos esto este año, quizás el próximo a más tardar.

Posibilidades: 65%


78. El Apple AirCharger
Estuve pensando después de lo que escribí sobre el iPhone 8, que nada impediría a Apple utilizar la misma tecnología inalámbrica de este en otros dispositivos, y de paso ofrecer un dispositivo al que llamo el AirCharger que permite recargar la batería de estos de forma inalámbrica. Un ejemplo sería un nuevo teclado, un nuevo ratón, una nueva trackpad, y quizás incluso hasta un Apple Pencil 2 (¿el "Air Pencil"?).

          Ukraine Alleges Moscow Behind Massive Cyberattack   
A Ukraine official claimed Wednesday that Russia was behind the previous day’s cyberattack that crippled computers in government ministries and power grid facilities, banks, even at Kyiv’s international airport.  Oleksandr Turchinov, secretary of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council, made the allegation after Tuesday’s cyberattack that ultimately hit companies around the world in an incident that was similar to a ransomware attack last month that targeted hospitals in Britain. The cyberattack, which Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman called “unprecedented,” was caused by a variant of a computer virus known as Petya, which threatens to wipe the infected computer clean of data unless the user pays a ransom in untraceable bitcoins. But the ransomware was just a ruse, according to some experts; the real goal of the hackers was to destroy data, they say. No proof or claim of responsibility While there is no proof or claim of responsibility behind Tuesday’s attack, Ukraine officials cited strong circumstantial evidence linking the widespread assault to Russia. Russia was blamed for a massive cyberattack on neighboring Estonia in 2007, and U.S. authorities, as well as private firms, have blamed Russia for carrying out a number of cyberattacks in connection with United States’ 2016 presidential election. Kyiv has blamed previous cyberattacks on its infrastructure and power grid on Russia, which annexed Ukraine’s Crimea peninsula in 2014. The attacks also followed the assassination Tuesday of a Ukrainian military intelligence officer in a car bomb in Kyiv. Authorities have called the bombing an act of terrorism. That Wednesday was Constitution Day, a public holiday in Ukraine, led some to speculate that the Petya cyberattacks were a “present” from Russia. Other experts have noted, however, that the attacks hit targets in other European countries. Russian state oil giant Rosneft reported it had fallen victim to the same ransomware virus. Burden of proof Anton Nossik, often called “the father of the Russian internet” and the founder of Lenta.ru and many other known Russian news sites, has doubts about links to Moscow. “The burden of proof lies with the Ukrainian authorities, who never bothered to provide any evidence before voicing accusations,” Nossik said. He said Ukrainian authorities should have listened to information technology experts’ warnings about ransomware threats, such as the so-called WannaCry cryptoworm that attacked computer systems worldwide in May. “Exploit tools are out there in the open, any school kid can use them against whoever forgot to patch his OS. If some government offices happen to neglect the very basic safety measures, they are vulnerable, and Kremlin is not to blame,” Nossik said. Doubts expressed Alexander Litreev, a Russian internet security expert, also expressed doubts that the attack was state-sponsored. “I do not know why the Ukrainian authorities have drawn conclusions about Russia’s involvement in this cyberattack, at the moment, there is no information to confirm or deny these statements. There are no signs of Russian involvement yet,” Litreev said. While Litreev said he did not yet see signs of state involvement, he did say “the code was written by professionals.” “The primary purpose, in my opinion, was to hit the largest number of devices possible,” he said. According to Litreev, fraud was the primary goal for the WannaCry ransomware, but not for Petya. As for the origin of the attacks, Litreev said it is too early to determine what person or group might have been involved. “We can’t tell for sure if this is the work of a state, a small group of people, or even a single person. We are looking into it,” he said.
          Comment on Case-Shiller: Seattle Real Estate is Hot, Hot, HOT! by Doug   
A general comment to bears, if they still remain: Just like you have recency bias and expect another housing market crash, the Fed too has recency bias and they therefore will not let the housing market crash. They already know how that ends. I think I saw a comment recently that the Fed's intent to begin to normalize their balance sheet has signaled the top of the housing market, because that surely means that interest rates are going to the moon! Wrong. The Fed is not going to sell their securities back to the market, rather, they will just let them mature. This allows them to slowly shrink their balance sheet without any disruptions to interest rates (asset prices) while also giving them room to begin easing again when the next recession hits. If you need evidence of this, just look at the 10y UST since the Fed's last meeting -- doesn't look like the market is too worried about dislocations caused by balance sheet normalization. The next crisis isn't going to involve housing, but it will be created by the Fed in their attempt to prevent another housing crisis. I tend to think it's going to be a currency crisis as evidenced by the surge in Bitcoin. It is interesting that gold has not rallied with Bitcoin, however. I don't think gold will stay muted forever, and in general, you want to own hard assets during a currency crisis. In summary, your house is more likely to double before it falls any meaningful amount.<div class="comment-remix-meta"><!-- --><a href="#" class="replyto" onclick="replyto('263507','Doug',''); return false;">Reply</a> — <a href="#" class="quote" onclick="quote('263507','Doug','A general comment to bears, if they still remain: Just like you have recency bias and expect another housing market crash, the Fed too has recency bias and they therefore will not let the housing market crash.

          KnotBlocks Logo Design - Upwork   
Project Overview: Help a small, woodworking shop create an online identity that blends the concepts of woodwork with blockchain (cryptocurrencies like BitCoin).  Scope includes website hero image ideas, logo, style guide, tag line.  Logo would be used to burn onto the items.

Company Products: I make handmade wood products.  Bowls are the primary items that are turned from white oak trees that fall in my yard from storms.  Each bowl is hand made on a lathe requiring 3 hours to make each bowl.  All products are organic, locally grown in Richmond, Virginia.  None of the trees is cut down, they are all felled naturally.  The logs are cut into &quot;blanks&quot; to dry which look like wood blocks.  I am a big proponent of BitCoin and will accept cryptocurrencies as a part of the online storefront.  The name of the store is a play on the fact that the wooden bowls are made from knotted wood, aren't blocks or blanks anymore and can be acquired through the blockchain.

Target Audience: Home decorators, bitcoin enthusiasts - mostly US and Chinese buyers

Sample Tag Line: Handmade art for the blockchain era

Budget: $25

          Automated Trading Strategy Using Tradingview and Autoview - Upwork   
I have a trading strategy that is great for manual trading from seeing the indicators on my tradingview charts.

Now I want to use the indicator to make a tradingview strategy so that I can backtest and eventually automate trades using &quot;autoview&quot; - http://autoview.with.pink/

autoview knowledge base here - https://use.autoview.with.pink/hc/en-us

There are several steps to modify the current indicator script so that it can be used as a tradingview strategy etc.

The coding is basic and simple for any programmer.

If there is a better platform to accomplish an automated  trading and backtesting tool then I am open to it.

Be aware that I mainly trade bitcoin on cryptocurrency exchanges.  My favorite exchange is bitmex at the moment.

          The Orthodox Nationalist: Putin – TON 062817   
putinthrone

This lecture from Dr Matthew Raphael Johnson continues the argument begun in Russian Populist: The Political Thought of Vladimir Putin. It continues to update Putin's policy in light of the basic principles that were laid out in the book.

To think at this stage that Putin is a tool of the Zionists, points to a stupidity or insanity that requires immediate medical attention. People hold to this silliness because they cannot believe that a real leader exists. Putin is not perfect. He is not a racialist in any way. But he is, by far, the best warrior against the New World Order that Europe has created. He is a nationalist and an Orthodox believer. Western leaders look on him with envy. The latest Pew Research poll shows his approval rating at 87%.

Putin has expressed his disbelief at the nonsense that American journalists and academics accept as fact. Assad using poison gas as he's winning the war; the Russian hacking story; that Putin himself will kill his opponents with an almost 90% approval rating. Oligarchy breeds insanity; it is an intellectual AIDS.

Putin looks on in disbelief as migrants by the hundreds of thousands are welcomed into Europe with full knowledge that they will destroy the societies that host them. They will threaten and even kill those that refuse to go along. This is the spiritual results of nominalism and liberalism.

If there is one slogan that summarizes Putin's political belief it is: "Oligarchy Breeds Terror."

          Merchants of Sin: Jews and Porn – AN 062717   
an 062817

In the final episode, we see the Jews triumphant as they succeed in finally forcing hardcore pornography on society as a whole. Where once a community was protected because it included children as well as adults, now all thought of protecting the innocence of young minds is gone and the most repulsive filth is available on hand held electronic devices. Pornography made money once and now it is all available for free, but the people producing it never had just that goal in mind. It was always more about degrading and corrupting the White Christian who the Jew is insanely jealous of.

They succeeded in doing this by a variety of ways, by using their own people to produce reports on the subject, by using the fraudulent data from Kinsey and Freud and even by using our own morality against us. They didn’t change the law, they beat the law and eventually the law just had to back down. All the male studs are Jews and the women are nearly always White Roman Catholics. If our people knew the real reason why porn was created and why it was promoted so much, they would be sickened and disgusted at how our kindness to the Jews in making them equal citizens has been repaid by them.

None of this is taken from anti-porn sites and books, it is all quotes from the Jews themselves involved. Even the ADL has given pornographers awards for their services to ‘freedom’ when really it is just freedom to be a slave to your lust and thus a slave to the Jew.

           Needing advise of payment gateway for my webstore   
Hello guys: I am so sorry if this has been asked elsewhere but I could not find the exact answer I was looking for. I have set up the test shop on a ecommerce platform and only ticked the PayPal option. But some errors occured when using paypal. Well, the detail is, my client wants to use the full features of PayPal, i.e. customers can pay by credit card through the PayPal checkout or use their PayPal account. Am I overlooking something or does the webstore PayPal option mean just that, PayPal account only and for credit card payments it has to be another payment gateway? That would upset me . I am sure I am doing something wrong? Who can help me?On the other hand, many clients have emailed me to ask me to provide another payment options like bitcoin or other digital currency since some of them live in Non-Paypal accepted countries, and a large part of them introduce the epay global payment to my website since it's free to pay and get paid, what's more, almost all the countries are available to use it----far better than paypal would be in this point. I have heard of it before buy haven't tryied yet, does it mean that i need to connect epay payment gateway? I can't find futher details on their website http://www.epay.com about the api. Any suggestions here?

          Tüm Dünyayı Saran Fidye Virüsü WanaCrypt0r 2.0 Nedir? Nasıl Bu Virüsten Korunuruz?   
Bu yazımızda tüm dünyayı saran WanaCrypt0r 2.0 virüsünden ve bu virüsten nasıl korunabileceğinizden bahsediyoruz.


Bildiğiniz gibi son iki gündür aniden ortaya çıkan WanaCrypt0r 2.0 isimli bir fidye virüsü tüm dünyayı sararak 70'in üzerinde ülkede binlerce kullanıcının bilgisayarına girdi ve bazı büyük şirketlerin işlerinin duraklamasına neden oldu. Peki basit virüs temizleme yöntemleriyle önüne geçilemeyen, bulaştığı bilgisayarın sahibinden Bitcoin isteyen WanaCrypt0r 2.0 virüsü tam olarak nedir? Bu virüsten nasıl korunuruz?

WanaCryptor 2.0 Nedir?

WanaCrypt0r 2.0 virüsü, Windows işletim sistemindeki açıklardan yararlanarak bilgisayarınızı kontrolü altına alıyor ve bilgisayarı kullanılamaz hale getirerek kullanıcılardan internetin para birimi Bitcoin ile ödeme yani bir anlamda fidye istiyor. Eğer kullanıcılar bu fidyeyi ödemezde virüs, kullanıcıları bir daha bilgisayarını kullanamamakla tehdit ediyor.

Genellikle hangi kullanıcılara bulaşıyor?

WanaCrypt0r 2.0 virüsü Windows XP ve Windows 8.1 dahil olmak üzere doğru düzgün virüs koruması olmayan tüm Windows 10 öncesi işletim sistemlerini kapsıyor. Bu virüsten güncel bir virüs koruması kullanan kullanıcılar yırtarken Windows 10'un güvenlik güncellemeleri bu virüse engel olmayı başarıyor ancak yeterli virüs koruması olmayan kullanıcılar apaçık tehdit altında. Windows 10 kullananlar ise şu an için güvende.

70'i aşkın ülkede binlerce bilgisayarı esir almış durumda, Türkiye'yi fazla etkilemedi

Özellikle Rusya ve Çin başta olmak üzere 70'in üstünde ülkede gözlenen virüs büyük şirketlerden günlük ev kullanıcılarına kadar binlerce kişinin bilgisayarına sızmış durumda. Türkiye'de ilk bilgilere göre 100'ün altında kullanıcının bilgisayarına girerken Türkiye, bu virüsün en az rastlandığı ülke olarak dikkat çekiyor. Ayrıca konuyla ilgili açıklama yapan BTK Başkanı Dr. Ömer Fatih Sayan, Türkiye'deki kullanıcılarının içinin rahat olması gerektiğini ve Türkiye'nin siber ordusu USOM'un bu virüs için de savunmada olduğunu söyledi.

WanaCryptor 2.0'dan korunmak için ne yapmalı?

Bu virüsün size bulaşmasını engellemeniz için uzmanlar her şeyden önce korsan içeriklerden kesinlikle uzak durmanız gerektiğini, lisanslı Windows sürümü ve tüm programları lisanslı kullanmanız gerektiğini söylüyor. Ayrıca antivirüs programının bu virüse karşı etkili olduğu ve hem aktif hem de güncel bir antivirüs programı kullanılması gerektiğini belirtiyorlar. Öyle ki birçok antivirüs programının yetkilileri bu virüsle karşılaşmamak kullanıcılarına antivirüs programlarını sürekli güncellemeleri gerektiğini de söylüyor.

The digital online currency bitcoin has had a meteoric yet volatile rise, recently surpassing $3,000 per coin in exchange markets. Its proponents praise its decentralized, regulation immune design. But what risks does it entail?

          Dr. Evil needs some legal "advise" ... or is it "advice?"    

When criminal-law cases imitate art,
they do not always choose its highest form.

United States v. Michael Mancil Brown, 16-6291 (6th Cir. 2017)



The Secret Service pays close attention when nefarious packages arrive at accounting firms from “Dr. Evil” - especially if “Dr. Evil” threatens the release of undisclosed tax returns of a presidential candidate unless $1 million in bitcoins is exchanged.

In August 2012, the Franklin, TN office of PricewaterhouseCoopers received a padded envelope containing a flash drive and letter demanding $1 million in bitcoins to stop the release of Mitt Romney’s undisclosed tax returns. The letter provided that the flash drive had these encrypted tax files and upon receipt of the bitcoins, an encryption key would be provided. The Williamson County Republican and Democratic party offices also received letters a few day later. After that, posts were placed on Pastebin.com that described the stolen documents and referenced the mailed letters. Several of these posts were signed by “Dr. Evil” and had the movie character’s image superimposed on the lobby of PricewaterhouseCoopers’ Franklin TN office. “Dr. Evil” was also wearing a Secret Service badge.

No matter how careful a technologically savvy extortionist may be – there are always digital crumbs left behind - even when the extortionist portrays himself as “Dr. Evil” from Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery.

In Michael Mancil Brown’s case - some of those crumbs included photographs on the flash drives of Tripper and Valentine - two cats that lived next door to him. It is unfortunate that neither were called “Mr. Bigglesworth.” Other clues that assisted the Secret Service with pinpointing his identity included text strings left behind on the flash drives that provided his wife’s name and a user name frequently used by Brown; and his consistent inability to properly use ‘advice’ and ‘advise.’

The Secret Service obtained a trap-and-trace order to watch Brown’s online activity and subsequently obtained a search warrant for his home. More inculpatory evidence was obtained against Brown leading to his indictment. He was later convicted on six counts of wire fraud and six counts of extortion. He received a 48-month sentence and was ordered to pay restitution to PricewaterhouseCoopers in the amount $201,836 for the cost of its investigation. He appealed his convictions arguing that the Secret Service’s search warrant lacked probable cause and that he was prejudiced by the lower court’s decision to allow questions from the jury. 

The Sixth Circuit affirmed the convictions but vacated his sentence due to an improper obstruction of justice enhancement. Brown had given a list of names of people having access to his computer. This information was used at sentencing by the government to apply the obstruction of justice enhancement. The Court concluded that the statement actually helped the government, undermined Brown’s credibility, and bolstered the government’s case. Thus, the information provided by Brown did not significantly obstruct or impede the government’s investigation and did not justify the obstruction of justice enhancement pursuant to U.S.S.G. § 3C1.1. 

This Sixth Circuit opinion is truly an informative and groovy read, especially if you are a fan of the Austin Powers movies, or if you truly need a detailed legal analysis concerning the issues raised by Brown.

          Choose which Australian Political Party to vote for by their Website Design!   
For those of you who are not Australian citizens and therefore are not voting in our Federal election, you need to know that here - voting is compulsory. If you don't vote without a good reason, then you get fined. The upside is we get a better representation of our citizens in our voting results. The downside is that some people just come in and 'spoil' their voting paper by scribbling on it, and others 'donkey vote' - that is just vote in the order that the selections appear.

We have a bi-cameral system, so two voting houses - the lower house or House of Representatives (where the government is formed), and an upper house or Senate, which is meant to be where our seven states and territories are represented - but in practice it acts as a bit of a safety valve on the excesses of the lower house.

It looks like we are going to have a close result, with perhaps neither major party ( Labor or Liberal - sort of like Democrats and Republicans in the USA, or Labour and Conservatives in the UK) getting a substantive majority. That means some of the minor parties - and there are a few of them - might get a guernsey in deciding who forms government in the lower house.

In the Senate, it is almost certain that neither of the major parties will get a majority (they haven't over the last couple of elections), and that one or a combination of minor parties will hold the balance of power.

After reading a post on Facebook which quoted KnowYourParties - I was inspired to wonder what would happen if you applied a design critique to each of the parties website design, and determined your vote that way?

Many thanks to the writer of KnowYourParties, whose descriptions I have borrowed entirely.

Health Australia Party
Rebranding of the Natural Medicine Party, which was probably a better description. Anti-vaxxers, fluoridophobes and homeopaths trying to expand their business via changes to medical legislation.
Their colour theming leaves a lot to be desired. They chose a good template, and then ruined it with their 'Byron Bay' hippy logo. Wasted screen realestate on an image of a bunch of anonymous people (are these their candidates?). OK, on the plus side its clean and clear, unlike their grubby anti-science views.

Seniors United Party of AustraliaFinally, a voice in parliament for the wealthiest generation that ever lived.
I think KnowYourParties description is a little harsh, or maybe that's just because as over 55yoa - they purport to represent my age group! The website looks like some ex IT geek put it together circa 1993 when the Mosaic web browser came out and allowed graphics. Unfortunately this website is comically representative of those they probably wish to recruit.


Family First
But only if your family consists of a white Christian man, a white Christian woman and at least two white Christian children and you believe everyone else is headed straight for hell.
Look, I like orange, and blue is a natural contrast, but this is just horrible - or horribly STRONG. Unfortunately 'Bob Day' sounds like some kind of annual celebration of bobbing for apples, when in fact they are bobbing for Jesus. This site is unrepresentative of what they stand for - no christian iconography anywhere.


Liberal Democrats Headed by David Leyonhjelm, who made it into the Senate in 2013 because of a herd of Lib voters being too stupid to correctly identify their preferred party. The Lib Dems are committed Libertarians whose ability to ignore all of the evidence on every possible issue would make any cult proud. 
Awful logo - and its repeated. Its very hard to carry off yellow on a white background. Did anyone realise that at the centre of this photo - its focus in fact is nothing? I think its meant to be on their leader. That top menu - you just don't see, and the slogan is just not important enough to win my vote - besides the fact that their view of the world is loathsome.

VOTEFLUX.ORG | Upgrade Democracy
 Flux (n) – an abnormal or morbid discharge of blood or other matter from the body. Whenever there’s a bill before the Senate, you use an app to discharge your opinion into a tame crossbencher and tell him (yes, it’s always going to be a him) which way to vote on each bill. Founded by two Bitcoin consultants, and works on the same blockchain principle, whatever the hell that means.
Well, they look like a software company. What's with the black background? Sooo web design circa last millennium. Pretty logo though. Unfortunately that headline reads like a 404 error.


Liberal
You wake up in an ice bath and realise that your left leg is missing, and Rupert Murdoch tells you that brown people and greenies and reds all conspired to steal your leg and are coming back for the rest of your limbs, but then why is Rupert wearing a blood-stained hospital gown, and why does his left leg look familiar, and there, on the knee, isn’t that the scar that you got when you were ten years old and fell off your bicycle?
Well, this is actually well designed in the main. Its responsive, and works well, with the leader front, centre and active. Pity about that horrible medallion logo thingy (WTF! Blue and yellow again!) What function is it meant to perform - an award? a certification? a mark of quality? Or is it just meant to NOT look anything like the Liberal party logo? Malcolm looks very presidential, and there is no sign of those nasty right wing climate deniers and homophobes.

The Nationals
You wake up in a shed and realise that your left leg is missing, and Rupert Murdoch tells you that brown people and greenies and reds all conspired to steal your leg and are coming back for the rest of your limbs, but then why is Rupert wearing a blood-stained hospital gown, and why does his left leg look familiar, and there, on the knee, isn’t that the scar you got when you were ten years old and got kicked by a horse?
Now this is interesting - the nationals take the iconography of the green movement and apply it to their arch enemy's? Given that in all their difficult seats, it is green leaning independents, or actual greenies that are their greatest threat - I expect this adoption of green iconography is intentional. Except for that horrible logo, and the specific shades of green and yellow they have chosen - this looks pretty good. Not that I'd vote for them - given their leader is one of the biggest climate deniers out there. Wise not to feature his image.

Democratic Labour Party (DLP)
If you’re an economic progressive yet somehow still a dyed in the wool Christian homophobe, this is the party for you.
That logo looked old fashioned when Bob Santa Maria commissioned it. Alternatively it looks like the logo used for film awards on advertising. The slogan is soooo dated and fuddyduddy, and about spelling! The graphic representing a subject cloud, without actually being one is very folksy.

Science Party
 Formerly the Future Party. They’re still naïve, but now they’ve got a full quiver of policies, mostly geared toward fixing the shitblizzard of the last three years.
Like the logo - although a bit more finance company than scientific. Love the image - now that's aspirational! On design - they are in contention for my vote.

Australian Cyclists Party
 Does exactly what it says on the box.
Yep - what he said. Logo is good, but could be better. Bit of waisted space at the top there right of the logo. What is it with blue and green? I'd consider voting for them, if some of their number didn't ride like crazed loons on footpaths, and are so un-evolved they don't know what a bicycle bell is for. It's to warn me that you are coming up my arse!

Shooters, Fishers and Farmers
This party is like the time I hurt my back a few years ago and thought the problem would go away like it always had before, except it didn’t and now I live with chronic back pain.
The only thing that is wrong with this logo, is that it should have a big red 45 degree line through that circle! Go and murder some defenceless animal somewhere else you vermin. Annoyingly, other than the appalling logo and social and political views, the website is quite well designed - which I suppose just goes to show that you can't judge a book by its cover. When did they add 'farmers' to their name? Was it when that farmer murdered that environment protection officer? Odious people.

Voluntary Euthanasia Party
As advertised.
Great logo, clever setup, because the power of their campaign is in the power of individual stories. Worthy of support for their design, and for their opinions in my view.

Socialist Alliance
The kind of socialists you can actually have a conversation with.
Well, it had to be red didn't it. The 'vote' message is a bit self evident. They are in need of a good slogan, and all that empty space around the logo is a waste. Other than the words - there is no real visual demonstration of what they stand for. Could do better.

Rise Up Australia Party
The actual worst. Founded by someone who got thrown out of Family First for too much hate speech, which is like getting kicked out of Labor for not doing anything.
This website is pretty foul - which I suppose does reflect the views of the party. The logo is hideous, and the functionality of the website is woeful. Let me give you some examples - it has a loader that tells you the percentage loaded - while you wait and wait (is it a flash site?). When you scroll down (try it if you can bare it) - you just get the tops of each of the candidates heads. I'd give you a screen shot if the party wasn't so vile. Oops, I couldn't resist. The menu is mid page, and has way too many items of varying sizes. On the plus size, it is responsive (unlike their mindset), and uses icons for its policy areas. That is the best thing I can say about the site, and the party.

Labor
The post-war European centre right party for Australia today. 
Not as sophisticated as Liberal, but that heading and logo are so much better. They have an image, where the focus of it is actually on their leader. Slogan good and clear, and I like the 'stand with us' phrase as opposed to 'Vote 1' and their ilk. Solid effort but room for improvement.

Online Direct Democracy – (Empowering the People!)
Like VOTEFLUX, but with PollyWeb instead of the Bitcoin blockchain. (If you say that sentence backwards at the stroke of midnight when the moon is full, Lucifer will appear and grant you three votes on bills that will never get up.) 
As Windows is to Apple - this is to good design. Is that a blue planet in a black hole? At least the're honest - its all about the technology not the people. No, just no.

Derryn Hinch’s Justice Party
It turns out that this is about Derryn Hinch’s notion of justice, not about bringing Derryn Hinch to justice. Which is disappointing. A Federal party campaigning on State issues, implying either ignorance or extreme cynicism. My money is on cynicism.
Derryn, your rich enough to afford better. The logo is ugly and literal. Judge Judy has a better one. This site is a bit of a stinker. I must implement a new rule of web design: never use dot points on a home page. The only honest bit of design is the implication that Derryn is the harbinger of justice - 'Hinch Justice'.

Jacqui Lambie Network
Anatomically incorrect: the logo is a map of Tasmania, but the policy platform is an arsehole. 
Black and orange - a favourite combination of mine. Have you noticed that they have deepetched Jacqui's hair so that it looks like an upside down map of Tasmania? Actually, this, a little like the candidate is straight shooting, without her muddling of words and images.
Pirate Party Australia
Basically progressive, and I agree with them on most things, but their ideas on intellectual property are anti-artist and their views on tax are just idiotic.
Ok, the logo is cute, the pirate ship is cute, the font is good, and the layout good, if a little old fashioned. Its a little staid really - not what you expect from outlaws.

Pauline Hanson’s One NationHave you ever licked a gallbladder?
It galls me to say it, but good logo. Fortunately that is where it stops. Too many stock graphics. No visual breathing space, and justified text. Enough said.


Veterans Party Supporting veterans with no nonsense, no political game playing and absolutely no policies.
Looks more like a recruitment advert for the forces. They always say, one strong image is better than a whole lot of bad ones. Ain't that the truth.

Secular Party of Australia
Basically pretty great, but there are a couple of issues where the commitment to secularism starts to look a little like Islamophobia.
The imagery here just says 'We want your money'. Not sure that is a good way to introduce yourself to the public - unless you're a televangelist. Logo - do I have to say it?

CountryMinded
I don’t agree with everything they say, but I’m not really their target audience. This is essentially the party that the National Party should be.
Blue and green again, really? Badly chosen template, and that logo needs to be shot. With a shotgun.

Socialist Equality Party
Trotskyists. Well-intentioned but fanatical. These are the people who never forgot that Che’s real first name was Ernest.
The site is quite mild mannered in design. That is almost a 'liberal' blue. Nice touches of red though.

Katter’s Australian Party
Uncle Ho and Margaret Thatcher cohabiting in a single mind.
Red, red, red. Reds all over the bed. We already know that Bob is deaf to nuance (shooting . . . Orlando). Apparently he is blind to colour as well. Other than that - a professional website.

Palmer United Party
The earth will shake violently, trees will be uprooted, mountains will fall, and all binds will snap – Palmer will be free. Palmer will go forth with his mouth opened wide, his upper jaw touching the sky and his lower jaw the earth, and he will swallow Odin in a single gulp. Flames will burn from his eyes and nostrils, and his sons will come after to swallow the sun and the moon.
That map of Australia is a crime against cartography, and vexillology (look it up). I love the meaninglessness of the slogan. I am surprised that they are still featuring the image of the morally (and possibly literally) bankrupt Clive.

Citizens Electoral Council
Possibly just straight-up insane. Climate deniers, but economically kinda socialist. Anti-Semitic and possibly white supremacist, but pro-immigration. They also claim that the Port Arthur massacre was commissioned by the British royal family and implemented by a mental health NGO.
Worst political website for this election. I would say it was designed by a server engineer, but that would be unfair to the design skills of server engineers. Just all types of wrong, which I suppose reflects their policies.

Australian Motoring Enthusiast Party
The Eddie the Eagle of befuddled right-wing governance.
Blue and green again. Is this a thing? Other than that, if you can't design a good logo, just use the words - and they did (I'm ignoring the ubiquitous southern cross on the wrong angle at the top).

Animal Justice Party
Better people than me.
. . . and not to be confused with Animal Farm Justice Party. Logo looks like The Wilderness Society for animals. I know the image is about live exports, but cute cat video's are more loveable.

The Arts Party
Sound policies, surprisingly shitty logo. Come on Arts Party, you had one job to do.
What he said. One job. Menu wrapping is a crime.

Non-Custodial Parents Party (Equal Parenting)
Fielded candidates for the last six Federal elections. Seventh time lucky, guys.
Couldn't organise a supervised visit - let alone a live website.

Mature Australia
Your racist Western Australian aunt.
OK this screen grab doesn't do it justice - looks like I timed it badly. Pretty logo, but what he said about the views. '2 cent tax' - they can't add up.

Christian Democratic Party (Fred Nile Group)
The party’s charter is just a bunch of bible quotes. It’s like we’re in Pennsylvania in the fucking 17th Century.
They bought a good wordpress template, and a good shot of parliament house. Pity they didn't spend as much money or care on their depressingly unimaginative, and proportionally challenged logo.

Australian Sex Party
Are you turned on by sound economic and social policies with a strong evidence basis? Then number the box and put your ballot in the slot.
OK, you did well with the logo, but seriously - an industry that has some of the most imaginatively designed sex websites and you came up with this? Its definitely not sexy, and I'm not sure it makes people take you seriously either.

Australian Progressives
A broad suite of evidence-based best practice policies that only seems progressive because Australia is such a regressive ideological clusterfuck.
Great site - get rid of that horror of a logo.  It doesn't say 'progressive'. It says . . . oh sorry I fell asleep with a pen in my hand.


Nick Xenophon Team
A bit far to the right for me personally, but Xenophon has done exactly what an independent senator is supposed to do, and pretty close to exactly what he said he would do. Which is refreshing.
Oh South Australia, you are such contrarians, but you always did have good food, and good arts. You win a boutique non-industrial prize for the orange and black combo, and a reneable power commendation for making a name like 'Xenophon' into a brand.

Drug Law Reform
Single issue party focused on treating drug use as a health issue rather than a criminal one. The stance seems well reasoned. It’s just a bit hard to take them seriously when their logo is a hemp leaf.
What he said about the logo. Some terrible images in that carousel, including a quote from Richard Branson. The green isn't even pretty.

Sustainable Australia
Formerly the Stable Population Party. They want a ‘sustainable’ population through lower immigration. If they actually cared about sustainability they’d be calling for a lower global population, but instead they’re calling for reduced population growth in a country with only 24 million people. Which means that what they are is simply racist.
Loathsome website, loathsome policies, loathsome logos.

The Greens
Yes, they wear suits now, but at least those suits are made from sustainable bamboo in a small Liberian social enterprise that sponsors education initiatives for orphaned girls.
I want to love the greens, but they have three things I am having trouble coming to grips with. The logo (OK, I can nearly forgive, as it has become their brand); this website (which commits several crimes against font usage, colour, and layout), and Lee Rhiannon. I support their ethos, but some of their policies (their small business policy from the last election seems to have disappeared) are just naive - like the design - those icons especially.

Australian Liberty Alliance
Angry Anderson (remember him? didn’t think so) vowing to stop the Islamisation of Australia. Last time I checked, Islam was holding steady at 2.2% of the population, so maybe one bald dickhead is all it takes to hold the hordes at bay.
A site designed last decade I think - or from when Angry Anderson last had a hit. Don't start me on the logo.

Renewable Energy Party
Single issue, seems good prima facie, but founded by Peter Breen, who was Ricky Muir’s only staffer for a time. I can’t figure out whether this is a good sign (Breen taught Muir how to be a halfway decent senator) or a terrible sign (how can someone go from the petrolhead party to a renewables party and expect to be believed?).
Like the look of this - simple and clean. Like clean energy - it takes a lot of work to make something look this simple.

Marijuana (HEMP) Party
Entirely about legalising weed, and there’s no suggestion that they’ve thought about a policy position on any other issues. My concern is that they’d side with anyone who takes snacks into the chamber
The design got all to hard, so they went for a smoke. Cheap shot, I know - but look at that site. Green and yellow. Really.

Anti-paedophile Party
Fair enough, but they’re also anti-sex education. So they’re imbeciles.
Unfortunately, this website looks as creepy as the people they say they oppose.


Oh, I'm exhausted! Believe me, this is more exhausting than actually filling out the Senate voting tablecloth.  Good luck tomorrow (June 2nd), and read the voting instructions, because they have changed.

I'm just looking forward to the time when the politicians of the two major parties work out that Australians do support smaller parties, and quite like when they have to discuss things with each other and argue policy. They actually don't like their government to be in total control like fascists. They like it when there is a multi-party approach to government.

Happy voting.

Andy Hoffman of Miles Franklin Precious Metals makes his unprecedented 4th appearance on the show! In this episode he shows the world his ever growing cryptocurenncy knowledge by not only talking about Bitcoin, but by also sharing his opinions about some popular altcoins and relating them to his real world financial experiences. You will only get to hear Andy go this deep into the realm of cryptocurrencies here!
          The Single Easiest Way To Understand Precious Metal’s Value   
I have lots of “PiMBEEB,” or Precious-Metal-bullish, everything-else-bearish, topics to discuss – to the point that I could easily pen three or four articles.  And trust me, I could easily do so; as in my quest, and the Miles Franklin Blog’s in general, to disseminate TRUTH – and in the process, end the gold Cartel’s world-destroying reign – I have indisputably published more Precious Metal commentary than anyone on the planet.  As in, roughly 250 articles per year, atop at least 100 podcasts, for many, many years. No matter how much ignominy I am forced endure – like yesterday’s paper gold “flash crash” – which the captive, brain-dead MSM actually called a “mistake” – it’s been worth every second of it; as the Precious Metal community, a “band of monetary rebels” with an iron constitution; and unwavering desire to end the greatest ill the planet has ever known, fiat currency; has introduced me to some of the best people I have known.  And better yet, now that I am an equally passionate Bitcoin devotee, I have found a whole new cadre of anti-establishment, anti-fiat currency “freedom fighters” to network with, making it doubly exciting to awaken each morning. I cannot wait to get to today’s principal topic – so much so, I actually considered putting it ahead of the day’s extremely PiMBEEB events.  However, in the spirit of structure; the virtue of anticipation; and most importantly, the necessity of focusing on the political, economic, and monetary dangers facing us, I’m going to hold off until the end.  Trust me, after reading the “preliminaries,” you’ll be better mentally prepared to embrace it!  Starting with… In a “you can’t make this stuff up” moment, Mario Draghi, who just two weeks ago, “took Central bank credibility to an all-time low” when he dramatically reduced the ECB’s inflation forecasts, one day after floating a “trial balloon” that the he would raise them, doubled down on idiocy at his latest press conference. First, he “unexpectedly” signaled tapering may be closer than expected, because factors weighing on inflation were “mainly temporary.”  To the point that, he actually said – on the same day the Bank of International Settlements issued an ominous warning of the increasing likelihood of another major financial ciriss – “the threat of deflation is gone.”  I mean, what part of crude oil plunging 8% since the June 9th ECB meeting am I missing?  […]

          The Post “Rate-hike” Manipulations-Are Nearly Dead   
In 15 years of Cartel, PPT, and Fed “watching,” I’ve not seen anything like the manipulations since Election Day – which is quite amazing, considering the powers that be were clearly aligned with the status quo fronted by Hillary Clinton, and her band of criminal bankers, corporate CEOs, globalist politicians, and “fake news” mainstream media.  Why “they” chose to double down their manipulative efforts when the “Red Swan” fought through their historic election-rigging to win the Presidency is beyond me – particularly now that “they” appear hell-bent on removing the ultimate outsider from office.  And by “outsider,” I mean politically speaking only – as clearly, the vile scum (Star Wars reference) he appointed to his inner circle, including five former Goldman Sachs executives, depict a level of crony capitalism even HRC would approve of.  Not to mention, his jawboning Whirlybird Janet to print more money, and further destroy the intrinsically worthless dollar. What have “they” actually accomplished?  The way I see it, “they” have pinned themselves into an inescapable corner, in which the only weapon they still have is a dramatically depleted printing press, fabricating a currency whose prestige, and usefulness, is rapidly dying.  The PPT, Gold Cartel, oil PPT, and Federal Reserve – combined with those managed by the ECB, BOJ, SNB, BOE, PBOC, and every other “leading” Central bank – are running the presses at full tilt, and manipulating markets, both overtly and covertly, at a pace never before witnessed.  But, to what end? Quantitatively, global economic activity as its weakest level since the Great Depression; whilst debt is parabolically rising, like the Tower of Babel; as oversupply, of essentially everything – caused principally by the printing of money, and misallocation thereof – is overwhelming the planet; whilst historically ugly demographic trends are set to destroy consumption for years to come, as technological advancement destroys tens of millions of jobs – of people with little or no savings, desperately depending on hopelessly insolvent corporations, municipalities, and “welfare states.” Hence, the “coincidental” invention of Bitcoin, just as history’s largest, most destructive fiat Ponzi enters its terminal, malignant stage – which threatens to overwhelm the powers that be’s’ printing presses – and consequently, the gold Cartel’s power – like nothing before witnessed, at a time when the historic wealth inequality caused by Central banks have caused unprecedented social unrest, political instability, and geopolitical tensions – and consequently, a growing hunger […]

          A popular cryptocurrency could be using more than a country's worth of electricity   

genesis enigma ethereum mining etherGenesis Mining

Thus far, 2017 has proven to be a notable year for cryptocurrencies — and not just the one most everyone’s familiar with.

While Bitcoin has been on a continuous upward trend, it’s major competitor Ether is following close behind. Despite last week’s flash crash and Sunday’s "fake news" market value drop, the price of Ether is back up, opening today (Wednesday) at $282.44.

That’s up by more than 13% since markets closed on Tuesday, and it’s continually going up.

Aside from an increase in market value, Ethereum’s price per coin is also up. It’s reached $300, which is a substantial jump from an initial value of $10 at the beginning of 2017. This is making Ethereum a more attractive option for amateur miners than Bitcoin.

Therefore, there’s been a surge in Ether mining from homes, using just computer graphics cards to pump new Ether units while at the same time securing the Ethereum blockchain — the public ledger of transactions that makes it all possible.

Real-time index from cryptocurrency analysis site Digiconomist’s founder Alex de Vries shows that Ethereum mining is powered by an amount of electricity equivalent to that consumed by a small country. All those household computers turned into Ether miners each have blockchain transactions consuming at least, if not more than, 45 kWh of electricity. According to de Vries, the entire Ethereum network could be consuming as much as 4.2 Terawatt-hours (tWh) — which is only a little bit more than what’s consumed by the Middle Eastern island of Cyprus.

Still, the methodology behind de Vries index isn’t totally exact, and since blockchain is decentralized, it would be next to impossible to truly ascertain just how much electricity these home-based Ether mining operations are consuming. The estimates do indicate, however, just how energy-intensive cryptocurrency mining has the potential to be.

genesis ether enigma mining ethereumGenesis Mining

One major reason for this is the power-hungry graphics cards involved. It’s ironic that mining cryptocurrencies in order to maintain blockchains — which are perhaps the most efficient and secure information ledgers we have — is a process that’s not particularly efficient.

This may not be the case for long, though. Unlike Bitcoin, Ethereum has plans to move away from its existing energy-intensive mining algorithms.

Instead of operating on a Proof of Work model, it’s building a hybrid one that incorporates Proof of Stake. Simply put, this new protocol could allow an Ether holder to mine just by having their computers connected, Vries explained to Motherboard. In a full Proof of Stake algorithm, "energy consumption would become negligible," he added.

Until then, mining for Ether will continue to demand huge amounts of electricity and computing power. Plus, as the price for Ether units continue to increase (with the market value of Ether following with it) more and more miners will be mining for it.

Ultimately, they could wind up consuming as much electricity as the price of Ether could support. The question is, is this energy and computing power for digital currency worth it? For the time being it seems that it is, if the growing number of miners are any indication.

          The cryptocurrency universe keeps expanding   

Bitcoin is the original cryptocurrency, and its meteoric rise has made it a mainstay of conversation for investors, media, and technologists alike.

In fact, the innovation of the blockchain is changing entire markets, while causing ripples with central banks and the financial industry. At time of publication, the bitcoin price now hovers near US$2,400, a massive increase from this time last year.

But the true impact of Bitcoin is actually far more reaching than this – it’s actually helped to birth new markets for over 800 other cryptocurrencies and assets that are available for online trading. And while the market for bitcoins is worth $40 billion itself, the rest of these cryptocurrencies are actually worth even more in combination.

 

THE ALTCOIN UNIVERSE

For the first time since Bitcoin was founded, it now makes up the minority of the entire cryptocurrency market at about 41.6% of all coins and assets.

BitcoinVisual Capitalist

So what are the other altcoins that make up the rest of this universe, and where did they come from?

Litecoin
Litecoin is one of the first altcoins, and it is nearly identical to Bitcoin after being “forked” in 2011. Litecoin aims to process blocks 4x faster than Bitcoin to speed up transaction confirmation time, though this creates several other challenges as well. At time of writing, Litecoin’s market capitalization is worth $2.1 billion.

Ethereum
Ethereum, launched in 2015, is the largest coin by market capitalization aside from Bitcoin. However, it is also quite different. While Bitcoin is designed to be a payments protocol first, Ethereum enables developers to build and deploy decentralized applications, while also enabling smart contracts. The tokens used to power the network are called Ether, but they can also be traded online. At time of writing, Ethereum’s market capitalization is $25.7 billion.

Also interesting: the Ethereum network actually split into two in 2016. It’s a complicated situation, but read about it here. There is now a separate Ethereum, based on the original Ethereum blockchain, trading as “Ethereum Classic” with its own market capitalization of $1.8 billion.

Ripple
Ripple (XRP) is the native currency of the Ripple Protocol – a broader catch-all for an open-source, global exchange. It’s already being used by banks such as Santander, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, UBS, and RBC. It solves a different problem than Bitcoin, allowing for settling payments between different currencies and even different payment systems. Today, Ripple’s native coin (XRP) has a market cap of $10.5 billion.

With over 800+ altcoins or assets out there, there’s plenty of information to absorb.

Here’s a short 20-minute course on the history of altcoins that might provide useful context, as well as in-depth explanations of Ethereum and Ripple that may help you learn about the important parts of a rapidly growing altcoin universe.

          Bitcoin donations to a $16 billion charitable fund are soaring   

Screen Shot 2017 06 28 at 4.33.06 PMMI

Bitcoin is red hot these days. The price of the cryptocurrency is up about 140% since the beginning of this year. And now it looks like bitcoin's popularity among the charitable is also on the rise. 

According to the recently released Fidelity Charitable 2017 Giving Report, donations made in bitcoin to Fidelity Charitable, a $16 billion donor-advised philanthropic fund, grew to about $9 million in the first half of 2017. That's about $2 million more than what bitcoin donors contributed in 2016.

The report paints a picture of the nearly 150,000 people who donate to the fund in order to illustrate trends in charitable giving, according to Fidelity Charitable's site.  

Donors to the fund have been able to give in bitcoin since 2015, according to a media representative at Fidelity, after joint collaborations between Fidelity Charitable and Fidelity Labs, Fidelity's emerging technology incubator. 

Fidelity's CEO Abigail Johnson is a bitcoin enthusiast. In May, The Wall Street Journal reported that Johnson voiced her support of the cryptocurrency in a speech at a conference hosted by CoinDesk, a cryptocurrency news site.

“Some of you might be wondering: Why am I here today?” Johnson said, according to the Journal."I’m here because I love this stuff... all that the future might hold.”

Not everyone in the financial world is as bullish as Johnson. Morgan Stanley, for instance, recently said that merchants don't think cryptocurrencies like bitcoin have a viable future. Here's Morgan Stanley:

"Most regulators and investors view cryptocurrencies more as assets than actual currencies. Their values are too volatile and too hard to actually use for payment for most to consider them currencies. Our conversations with some merchants indicate that, while cryptocurrencies might actually be attractive for them to operate their businesses, they find that the cryptocurrencies are far too volatile to be used."

Other obstacles to bitcoin, according to the bank, include the Chinese crackdown on mining bitcoin and declining trading volumes

          THE PAYMENTS INDUSTRY EXPLAINED: The Trends Creating New Winners And Losers In The Card-Processing Ecosystem   

bii payments ecosystemUSETHISBI Intelligence

This is a preview of a research report from BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service. To learn more about BI Intelligence, click here.

The way we pay is changing dramatically. For example, people are beginning to use their smartphones for every kind of formal and informal transaction — to shop at stores, buy songs online, and even split their rent.

At the heart of these changes in how we pay are thousands of companies competing and collaborating to facilitate transactions.

To understand why the payments industry has faced so much disruption in such a short time, there's just one key thing to understand: Payments is about transferring information from one party to another, and nearly every stakeholder in the industry benefits when that process runs on digital rails.

But payments is also an extremely complex industry that few fully understand.

In BI Intelligence's 2016 Payments Ecosystem report, we make it simple, explaining how it works, who the key players are, and where it's headed.

In this latest edition of the report, BI Intelligence drills even further into the industry to explain how a broad range of transactions are processed, including prepaid and store cards, as well as revealing which types of companies are in the best and worst position to capitalize on the latest industry trends.

Here are some key takeaways from the report:

  • 2016 will be a watershed year for the payments industry. Payments companies are improving security, expanding their mobile offerings, and building commerce capabilities that will give consumers a more compelling reason to make purchases using digital devices.
  • Payments is an extremely complex industry. To understand the next big digital opportunity lies, it's critical to understand how the traditional credit- and debit-processing chain works and what roles acquirers, processors, issuing banks, card networks, independent sales organizations, gateways, and software and hardware providers play.
  • Alternative technologies could disrupt the processing ecosystem. Devices ranging from refrigerators to smartwatches now feature payment capabilities, which will spur changes in consumer payment behaviors. Likewise, blockchain technology, the protocol that underlies Bitcoin, could one day change how consumer card payments are verified.

In full, the report:

  • Uncovers the key themes and trends affecting the payments industry in 2016 and beyond.
  • Gives a detailed description of the stakeholders involved in a payment transaction, along with hardware and software providers.
  • Offers diagrams and infographics explaining how card transactions are processed and which players are involved in each step.
  • Provides charts on our latest forecasts, key company growth, survey results, and more.
  • Analyzes the alternative technologies, including blockchain, which could further disrupt the ecosystem.

          From Kill Switch To Bitcoin, 'WannaCry' Showing Signs Of Amateur Flaws   
Cops have a decent shot at catching run-of-the-mill online scammers — say, the guy selling a car that's just too good to be true on Craigslist. But catching ransomware attackers is generally much more difficult — unless they slip up. The criminals behind the "WannaCry" ransomware attack may have done just that. Experts are now seeing some amateur flaws emerging including an easy-to-find kill switch and the unsophisticated way the attackers are demanding bitcoin from their victims. Ransomware "tends to be a crime that is born on the Internet, born through kits sold on the dark web that already pre-build in anonymity of the perpetrators," said police detective Nick Selby, who specializes in cybercrime. Those "kits" Selby describes are what experts think they're seeing with WannaCry. Somebody's using software tools created by somebody else. "The ransomware itself, we have seen that before in the wild and it's not that sophisticated," said Paul Burbage, malware researcher for Flashpoint

          Bitcoins: Teufelszeug oder Währung der Zukunft?   
Der Kurs der Digitalwährung Bitcoin ist in den letzten Wochen und Monaten rasant angestiegen und bricht nahezu täglich neue Rekorde. Erst vor kurzem hat er die Marke von 2.000 USD überschritten. Die Akzeptanz von Bitcoins steigt und auch die Regulierung von Digitalwährungen schreitet voran. Doch gleichzeitig tauchen Bitcoins immer wieder in negativem Kontext auf: über der Digitalwährung lastet nach wie vor ein Schleier der Illegalität. Dazu kommt ihr stark ideologisch geprägter Hintergrund. Erste Nutzer waren inmitten der Finanzkrise 2008 Libertäre und Anarchisten, die es sich zum Ziel gemacht hatten, das existierende Finanzsystem mit Bitcoins zu stürzen. Auch dass der Entwickler nur unter dem Pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto bekannt ist, sorgt für Misstrauen. Der Kurs der Digitalwährung Bitcoin hat sich in den letzten zwei Monaten dennoch mehr als verdoppeln können. Es gibt bereits mehrere Millionen Bitcoin-Nutzer und die Zahl steigt täglich weiter. Knapp 9.000 Geschäfte weltweit akzeptieren mittlerweile Bitcoins, online sind es...
          Bitcoins vs. Greenbacks and/or Gold and Silver   
There are conflicting stories among Bitcoins’ supporters about why a Japanese programmer or team of Japanese programmers, who are known by a pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto, developed the original idea for the Bitcoins software. The primary justification for Bitcoins among libertarians is the prediction that Bitcoins will become an alternative currency to all existing central bank currencies. Bitcoins are seen as a first-stage revolt against central bank money. In this essay, I’m going to make a series of arguments. I’m going to tell you in advance what my arguments are. You can then judge whether or not I have been successful...

          5 reasons Why I am economic Bitcoin Maximalist   

@BernardLunn wrote:

5 reasons Why I am economic Bitcoin Maximalist
Not a moral Bitcoin Maximalist. I don't say buying Bitcoin is any better for the world. Just that Bitcoin will be better than Altcoins as an investment. I said investment, meaning over the long term (plenty of short term trading opportunities in Altcoins)

One. Brand and network effects. Step outside the cryptoverse for a moment. Have any trouble explaining Bitcoin to a newby? Try Ethereum. Try hundreds of Altcoins. Building a crypto product/service? Building for Bitcoin is a no-brainer. Which Altcoin do you invest your R&D budget into?

Two. Not making any more of it. People fed up with money printing like land, gold...and Bitcoin. A big newbie question, but how can we believe "they" won't make more Bitcoin? Now ask that question of every Altcoin.

Three. Copy that. Sidechains will allow entrepreneurs to copy any feature of a cool Altcoin. Like Smart Contracts? Use Rootstock. Altcoins as a sandbox for experiments are a "good thing". As a donation to the community that is cool, as an investment thesis less so.

Four. Lightning Network. Sure we will also have Raiden on Ethereum. Raiden as an Enterprise IT tool is great, but that is very different from a true alternative currency for mainstream use; for that, see 1.

Five. Flight to safety from both directions. Coming from Fiat, Bitcoin is an Anti Fragile crash protection bet. Coming from Altcoins, Bitcoin is safe haven while still believing in Crypto. If you made millions in an ICO, where do you put your stash? No, really.

Ethereum is a wonderful technology innovation. It will be used by big corporations, but so what? If Proof of Stake really works, Ethereum could become a true public alternative currency because Proof Of Work is expensive. But that is like saying if we can easily transport solar energy we can get off fossil fuels - easier said than done. Casper in Etherum is still in development. Watch this space, this is a wild card.

          Results of our experiment Steemit is a nice interest graph intersection for me - both Fintech/Blockchain and Media   

@BernardLunn wrote:

Daily Fintech is on Steemit and we will publish results of our experiment.

For beginners to Steemit, there are many resources.

My first post is this one but copied to Steemit. If you are on Steemit, please go there and send it some up vote love.

If that gets a knee jerk reaction of “yet another work from home scam” that was also my initial knee jerk. But I also remember my knee jerk reactions to email, social media, e-commerce.

So as I started to hear more about Steemit, my interest grew and I decided to give it a try - to run an experiment.

I don't tend to jump in at the earliest stage. In Crossing the Chasm terminology, I am an Early Adopter "visionary", not an Innovator "techie" and I only jump in when I think there is a chance that it will move across the chasm to the Early Majority.

For example I started using email in 1994, LinkedIn in 2005 and Twitter in 2007. In each case they were a) easy to get started with and b) had a practical benefit for me. So that combination is what I was looking for from Steemit.

First, easy. The on-boarding experience was standard two factor authentication. I assumed I would then start publishing. Then I was told that my application was “awaiting approval”.

I was not the first to find this seemingly manual process step strange as this conversational thread on Steemit shows. I have copied some of the comments below:

“I am not sure the issue but its frustrating me. If i recommend it to someone and they cant sign up? Its not building hype but changing peoples minds about joining.

You will need to do the secret hand shake first.

Seems like it depends on the country. I have been getting friends to join from around the world and some get approved in a few days, while others are still waiting over a week later…

I feel like there are better ways to trap spam accounts though. Like, what is it that they're doing in that 48 hours? Is somebody manually checking these? All I can assume is that if they are querying some of the services available to see if the account has been used for spam purposes... but I doubt they're doing that manually or that's going to be a huge issue as they try to scale the site.
I'd definitely be interested to know what the technical reason is for the delay.”

Reading that I was thinking “well that experiment ended badly pretty quickly”, but when I got back to my email a few hours later, the approval was there.

So I still want to know why they have this approval process and whether it will get in the way of growth, but for now I just assume this is a pragmatic entrepreneurial “do things that don’t scale” that is life-stage appropriate. More importantly my experiment can continue.

So I am interested in the practical benefit question of whether one can make real money as a content creator on Steemit. In Social Media 1.0, the content creators got paid in attention not cash - think Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. If Steemit is Social Media 2.0, where content creators got paid in meaningful cash that is a big deal.

I have been a bear on the donations method of micropayment as the way for content creators getting paid. Putting up a Patreon button is easy enough, but donations is not an interesting model IMO. Why should somebody donate to a stranger? If I was a starving child in Africa, the charitable instinct kicks in. But Daily Fintech content is specialised and niche and not a charity case. So my theory says Patreon should not work but if I want to run a scientific experiment I should really run Patreon and Steemit side by side. Without the charity use case, there has to be a cut bono argument. There has to be a reason why somebody will pay.

The reason I think Steemit might work is my experience on a forum like Hacker News. (I say “might” because this is an experiment and this is only a hypothesis) Community curation works on Hacker News. It consistently surfaces interesting content. Getting rewarded in Karma points is cool. As I see Steemit, it is like getting Karma points that I can convert to cash.

Preconceptions from the Fintech/Blockchain realm.
So that is how I see it from a Media POV. Steemit is also interesting from a Fintech/Blockchain POV ie the sort of thing we write about on Daily Fintech.

After my experiment, I will know more. At this time I have some preconceptions:

Bitshares. The founder of Steemit had earlier founded Bitshares, which failed. This can lead to two conclusions:

Whatever he touches fails, so Steemit will fail.
If he learned from Bitshares he is a tried and tested entrepreneur who may make it second time around.

I incline to 2. I have seen many ventures that were simply too early. I think Bitshares was like that. At some point we may see something like Bitshares go mainstream and then Bitshares will be honoured with a footnote in history.

Its Complicated.

You can read about 3 currency units here (key points copied below):

Steem:
Steem are the units that are bought and sold for actual money on the open markets. You can trade them as you would bitcoins or a company’s stock.
But you don’t want to hold on to these for too long because more Steem Units are created every single day. If you hold onto Steem Units for a long time, they will become diluted and lose value.
Steem Power:
Owning Steem Power Units is essentially like making a long term investment in the currency because you can’t sell Steem Power Units for 2 years. But there are a lot of good reasons to have Steem Power.
By keeping your currency as Steem Power Units, you will be able to make considerably more money in the long run because you essentially have ownership in the network. As the network grows, so will your piece of the pie.
And you’ll be heavily rewarded along the way. The way things are set up now, 90% of the new Steem Currency that is generated every single day is distributed to the people who already hold Steem Power Units in the form of additional Steem Units. (The other 10% goes to content creators and curators).
Half of the pay you receive for your content will be in Steem Power Units.
Also, the more Steem Power Units you have, the more your curation vote will count. You will have more influence on the site and you will also get paid more for upvoting other people’s work. (When you upvote someone’s work, they will get paid more as well.)
Steem Power Units also play one final and very important role. They prevent massive price swings and volatility on the open markets. Because everyone is locked in for 2 years, we can’t all sell our currency all at once if the market starts to dip, which would crash the price were it to happen.
Steem Dollars:
Steem Dollars are the third and final form of the currency and never get diluted or lose their value. They are designed to be a stable currency that you can sell at any time. When you create popular content, 50% of your pay will be in Steem Dollars.
And you’ll be rewarded for holding Steem dollars too. It’s not nearly as much as the rewards for holding Steem Power. But because it still keeps the currency in the network, holding Steem Dollars pays 10% interest.
When you earn Steem Dollars for creating content, you have three choices:
1) You can convert the Steem Dollars to Steem and sell it immediately on the open market for real money, essentially cashing out.
2) You can hold the Steem Dollars, which keeps the money in the network and pays you 10% interest. You can sell them at any time. If you think the value will go up and want to sell at some point in the near future, this is your best option.
3) You can exchange your Steem Dollars for Steem Power. If you want to invest in the future of the currency and reap the biggest rewards, this is the way to do it.

My knee jerk reaction, that is too complex and sounds a tad scammy, just give me some cash. So let me run the experiment and see what happens. I do not have a policy on these currency units going into the experiment.

Is it really Blockchain?
The jaded journalist in me sees a classic HypeWord1+HypeWord2 in Steemit as in SocialMedia+Blockchain. Adding Blockchain to anything is a classic hype gambit as in IOT+Blockchain (21) or SupplyChainFinance+Blockchain (Hive) or Adtech+Blockchain (BAT). Some of these ventures maybe real but the concatenation of hype words sounds my hype alarm. The question remains, how does Blockchain really enable Steemit. I don’t know but will suspend disbelief till I find out.

My first post is this one but copied to Steemit. If you are on Steemit, please go there and send it some up vote love.

          Venture Wanted - P2P Insurance for Bitcoin exchanges   

@BernardLunn wrote:

Mostly we write about ventures trying to find their market. In this case we are doing the opposite. We are writing about a problem and inviting the community to either tell us about an existing solution or come together to co-create a solution.

The problem is how to enable newcomers to Bitcoin to convert from Fiat to Bitcoin without worrying about funds getting stolen (as they were on Exchanges such as Mt Gox and Bitfinex).

One solution is a form of insurance, some kind of “common risk pool fund”, that would insure customer funds in case of theft.

Call it a free market alternative to government schemes such as FDIC.

Maybe a P2P Insurance venture looking for an early adopter market with a serious pain point is listening?

Fintech Genome is the place where great conversations make things happen. Chip in to help make this happen (or tell us if it already exists).

          Technical Analyses of Ethereum & Other Thoughts   

@mikeenikee wrote:

I've recently been pondering over traditional investing principles and how they apply to crpyto. A lot of people are quick to say "throw those out the window, they're useless." For the most part, I'd have to agree, but the exceptions are just too big to ignore. In addition to looking at what principles we can carry over with finance 2.0 we should also look at what new principles we can synthesize going forward. The following are a few questions I've complied to spark a discussion around this topic.

How can we plot it against its own specs such as hashrate and/or uncle rate and/or block per second? One study showed that there was a (network) correlation between daily transactions squared and the price per ether. (link: http://imgur.com/a/tzdUv).

How can we analyze herd mentalities? Are herds good or bad, and what about in finance 2.0? Do herds affect the success of a coin (i.e. Less adopters = failure)?

What is the science behind technology being replaced by new technology? What causes the migration from one tech to the next? How will Ethereum surpass Bitcoin in general popularity, not only market cap?

What's the inflation of ethereum like? Is inflation only relative to its own domain and not others?

I've been thinking the above over for quite awhile now and would like to hear other people's thoughts and to catalyze each others' thinking.

          Blockchain Token Securities Law Framework ITO ICO Self Regulatory Code of Conduct   

@BernardLunn wrote:

Reuben Bramanathan has already done the hard work of creating a Blockchain Token Securities Law Framework.

The Framework has been prepared in collaboration with Coin Center, Union Square Ventures and Consensys. It is open source and free to use.

Reuben is a Blockchain Lawyer and Product Counsel @coinbase. Thanks Reuben and those who sponsored and backed it.

It is open source, so I have reproduced it below. It is a huge step forward in the mission of creating a Self Regulatory Code of Conduct for ITO ICO.

A Securities Law Framework for Blockchain Tokens
A blockchain token is a digital token created on a blockchain as part of a decentralized software
protocol.
There are many different types of blockchain tokens, each with varying characteristics and uses. Some blockchain tokens, like Bitcoin, function as a digital currency. Others can represent a right to tangible assets like gold or real estate.
Blockchain tokens can also be used in new protocols and networks to create distributed applications. These tokens are sometimes also referred to as App Coins or Protocol Tokens. These types of tokens represent the next phase of innovation in blockchain technology, and the potential for new types of business models that are decentralized - for example, cloud computing without Amazon, social networks without Facebook, or online marketplaces without eBay.
However, there are a number of difficult legal questions surrounding blockchain tokens. For example, some tokens, depending on their features, may be subject to US federal or state securities laws. This would mean, among other things, that it is illegal to offer them for sale to US residents except by registration or exemption. Similar rules apply in many other countries.
The Framework focuses on US federal securities law because these laws pose the biggest risk for crowdsales of blockchain tokens. In many jurisdictions, there may also be issues under anti-money laundering laws and general consumer protection laws, as well as specific laws depending on what the token actually does.
This document is a general guide for developers and users of tokens.
Part 1 is designed to estimate how likely a particular token is to be a security under US federal securities law.
Part 2 sets out some best practices for crowdsales.
Part 3 is a detailed securities law analysis by Debevoise & Plimpton LLP.
As more fully set forth in the component parts of this document, the document does not constitute legal advice and should not be relied on by any person. Developers and users should consult their own counsel in connection with their initiatives in this area.
1
You should not rely on this Framework as legal advice. It is designed for general informational purposes only, as a guide to certain of the conceptual considerations associated with the narrow issues it addresses. You should seek advice from your own counsel, who is familiar with the particular facts and circumstances of what you intend and can give you tailored advice. This Framework is provided “as is” with no representations, warranties or obligations to update, although we reserve the right to modify or change this Framework from time to time. No attorney-client relationship or privilege is created, nor is this intended to be attorney advertising in any jurisdiction.

          My take on the Bancor ICO ITO   

@BernardLunn wrote:

Some things remain the same no matter the technology. In ye olde world of Wall Street, some IPOs are hyped. The value is irrelevant, you just play the momentum game. Some ICOs are also like that. Bancor seems like that.

Some IPOs seem to fail and then deliver massive value. Think Facebook.

The Bancor ICO feels like 1999 at hyper speed - you thought those days were fast moving, ha!

As an investor you can play both IPOs and ICOs the same way. You can either play the momentum game. Its all about sentiment, what the company actually does is irrelevant (it just needs to have a plausible story). Plenty of people play that game very well. The other way, which I prefer, is to wait till some time after the IPO or ICO or ITO to see what happens. That is is the whole point of liquidity; you choose when to jump in. If there is no liquidity - if the proposition is "send the money right now, its your last chance" - it is probably a scam.

Will Bangor actually provide liquidity without any counterparty risk? If so they have huge value. If not, this will be footnote in the history of Blockchain, Bitcoin and Crypto.

In short, wait and see.

          A self-regulatory code of conduct for ITO (Initial Token Offering) and ICO

Read on, plenty of lawyers involved in making this happen.

This document outlines:

❏ Why ITOs are difficult to understand

❏ Why ITOs could be very valuable

❏ Why ITOs are dangerous

❏ Why the conventional regulatory approach won’t work

❏ One approach to the global jurisdictional problem

❏ The people behind this initiative

❏ The process from here

Why ITOs are difficult to understand
Is it a bird, is it a plane, is it a…
It is a new paradigm, yet all of us (entrepreneurs, investors and regulators) seek a simple analogy from traditional finance. Is it a:

● Currency (ICO) like another Altcoin?
● Equity (IEO) with a fixed supply (max = 100%)?
● Bond (IBO) with a fixed income?
● ANO Asset (IAO) (like property, art, wine)?
● Something entirely new where none of the old analogies quite work? This could be something technical like a database right or access right.

We use the term Initial Token Offering because “token” is neutral. A token represents value and that value could be a currency, equity shares, a fixed income bond or any other asset. However we also recognise that ICO is used by most people in the market.

These are new concepts and none of the old analogies fit. Different market participants see it in different ways and some promote that view out of self interest. These competing viewpoints from interested parties make understanding even harder.

Why ITOs could be very valuable
The old saw is “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”.
The corollary is “if it is broke, find a way to fix it”.
The innovation capital business is broken for both parties:

  • Entrepreneurs need an easier way to raise the capital that they need to get a product/service built and into the market. The end result is a product/service, capital is simply a tool to that end. The problem is that investors, even those who claim to be early stage, want evidence of traction to avoid the chasm that so many ventures fall into before achieving Product Market Fit (PMF). This pushes more risk to founders and their friends/families. The IPO window keeps getting harder to get through, leaving a dwindling number of acquirers, making investors even more risk averse.

  • Investors need a chance to get in early but also to get liquidity. By the time most investors get a chance at IPO (when they have liquidity), the best returns have often already been taken by private investors. Yet if they try to get into private rounds most investors are at a disadvantage to the top tier VC funds and they have to accept their capital being locked up with no control over liquidity. This is hard for even the HNWI and UHNWI investors, but it is doubly hard for smaller investors who are sometimes legally prohibited or have to pay a big % in legal expenses.

ITOs – done right – could help both parties because there is liquidity, which allows some investors/traders to take a short term view if they want to (and these speculators provide liquidity). ITOs also have some of the advantages of rewards based crowdfunding services like Kickstarter, because the investors in ITOs are often also the users. They use the tokens on the network/service. So they help get the venture to PMF. It is their passion and knowledge that drives the process.

Why ICO/ITO is dangerous
It is very simple to raise money via an ITO (ICO). This will bring out honest entrepreneurs who are fed up with the current way of raising capital. It will also bring out crooks. It already has. So far early investors have been people playing with “found money”. For example if you invested in Bitcoin in 2009-2011, putting some of those profits into Ether in 2014 seemed pretty easy, even if you follow it up by losing it on the DAO in 2016. It is quite different when Josephine Q Public is investing from earnings that took 40 years to accumulate and which she is banking on for a comfortable retirement. If ITO scales, more crooks and more Josephine Q Public actors get involved.
The words Initial and Offering make one think of IPO and that is beguiling for both entrepreneurs and investors and that can make them blind to the downside.

The Howey test (from an SEC legal case from 1946) is basically – if it looks and acts like an equity it probably is. Many ICOs fail this test, putting them in the regulatory cross hairs.
This is a problem for both parties:

  • Honest Entrepreneurs get “tarred with the same brush” from scams and lousy offerings and will face a heavy regulatory backlash.

  • Investors will face scammers who are very skillful both technically and in obfuscation and marketing.

Why the conventional regulatory approach won’t work

Two end results will be bad:

  • Unregulated scamsters discredit the whole ITO concept, causing investors to shun them.
    or
  • A regulatory backlash kills the potential of ITOs for both entrepreneurs and investors by being too heavy handed.

Lots of vested interests in the capital markets (such as big VC funds and investment bankers) will be hurt if ITOs go mainstream. So we can expect many well reasoned calls for strict regulation.

One very powerful feature of ITOs is that they are totally global and permissionless - like bitcoin. Josephine Q. Public can invest in an ITO without permission from any commercial or government institution no matter where she is based and no matter where the entrepreneur is based and no matter how much money she has. Yet regulation works on a sovereign jurisdictional basis and in many jurisdictions there are competing agencies involved in any single transaction. If we let one big powerful jurisdiction define the rules (say USA or EU or China), there are too many complex conflicts of interests and many other jurisdictions will want to add their local nuance. Then we will have a complex overlapping set of regulations that will kill the agility/simplicity that entrepreneurs and investors like about ITOs.

Sovereign jurisdiction still does matter. Smart Contracts are great until there is a dispute and even in a well designed smart contract there are exceptions that the designers never anticipated. That is when old fashioned courts, judges, juries (in some countries) and lawyers are needed.

One approach to the global jurisdictional problem

Digital communication is permissionless. I don’t need permission to send an email/text to somebody in another country. Money is different - bits don’t stop at borders but money has to show its passport.

One approach is to keep it simple by defining three different sovereign jurisdiction locations:

❏ Where the entity is located. This will encourage jurisdictional competition. Jurisdictions will have to get the balance right between meeting the needs of both entrepreneurs and investors. Too far in one direction will not be sustainable. Examples of jurisdictions that may want to innovate like this are Switzerland, Malta, Iceland, Estonia, UK, Delaware, Hong Kong, Singapore.

❏ Where the token buyer is located. This is where the rules can vary from country to country. We may also eventually see the securitization of tokens, which would allow a token buyer to decide whether they want to go through an onshore or offshore vehicle. In this scenario, feeder funds will emerge and compete in major jurisdictions.

❏ Where the founding team, directors/officers are located. In todays world this can be multiple locations and separate from Entity location, but investors should be able to see in which jurisdiction they are in case it all goes wrong and the investors want to take them to court.

The objective of the ITO Self Regulatory Code of Conduct is simple. We want an Issuer to say “we abide by the ITO Self Regulatory Code of Conduct”. Our aim is to offer simple tools to compare any offer to this Self Regulatory Code of Conduct.

The process from here

To start with we are inviting public comments on the mission. Then we will create a model code of conduct and invite comments on that.

If you would like to get more involved please tell us in comments. We want people who have the rare combination of expertise in a subject that few people understand without having too much conflict of interest.

  •           Bitcoin working for anyone yet?   

    Thanks for your response @Kovah. After some further experimentation, I decided to change my API version for the key I set up on Coinbase to be their legacy v1 API. This seemed to fix the error about the API version.

    Now, I am encountering a new error when attempting payment via Coinbase:

    Payment failed. Please try again.
    Not Found

    Any suggestions? I will keep poking around when I have some more time.


              Bitcoin working for anyone yet?   

    I haven't tested coinbase before because I have to account for them. However this seems to be a problem withthe library we are using. I will check this but I doubt there will be a fast solution for that.


              Bitcoin working for anyone yet?   

    Hi all,

    I just upgraded to InvoicePlane 1.5.3 after the anticipated bugfix which I was hoping would get Coinbase Bitcoin payments up and running. Unfortunately, after configuring Coinbase I've run into another issue:

    Payment failed. Please try again.
    Scopes don't match current API version.

    Does anyone have this working yet, am I doing something wrong, or is there another bug perhaps?

    Thanks!

    Η Διεύθυνση Δίωξης Ηλεκτρονικού Εγκλήματος της Ελληνικής Αστυνομίας ενημερώνει τους πολίτες για την συνεχιζόμενη εμφάνιση και στη χώρα μας, του κακόβουλου λογισμικού «WannaCry», το οποίο συγκαταλέγεται στις ψηφιακές απειλές τύπου «Crypto-Malware» και μπορεί να επηρεάσει όλες τις εκδόσεις λειτουργικού συστήματος.

    Το κακόβουλο λογισμικό μολύνει τους ηλεκτρονικούς υπολογιστές με δύο, κυρίως, τρόπους:

    • μέσω μολυσμένων μηνυμάτων ηλεκτρονικού ταχυδρομείου, που εμπεριέχουν κακόβουλα επισυναπτόμενα αρχεία και
    • μέσω επισφαλών ή μολυσμένων ιστοσελίδων.

    Ειδικότερα, ως προς τα μολυσμένα αρχεία, πρόκειται συνήθως για αρχεία τύπου .docx και .pdf, στα οποία έχουν ενσωματωθεί κακόβουλες μακροεντολές, που εκτελούνται κατά το άνοιγμά τους και εγκαθιστούν το κακόβουλο λογισμικό στον Η/Υ.

    Μετά την εγκατάστασή του στο λειτουργικό σύστημα, κρυπτογραφεί – κλειδώνει ψηφιακά αρχεία και τα δεδομένα τύπων .lay6, .sqlite3, .sqlitedb, .accdb, .java, .class, .mpeg, .djvu, .tiff, .backup, .vmdk, .sldm, .sldx, .potm, .potx, .ppam, .ppsx, .ppsm, .pptm, .xltm, .xltx, .xlsb, .xlsm, .dotx, .dotm, .docm, .docb, .jpeg, .onetoc2, .vsdx, .pptx, .xlsx και .docx, που είναι αποθηκευμένα στον ηλεκτρονικό υπολογιστή του χρήστη που έχει μολυνθεί από τον ιό.

    Για να ξεκλειδωθούν τα μολυσμένα αρχεία ενός Η/Υ, ζητείται η καταβολή χρηματικού ποσού, με τη χρήση του ψηφιακού νομίσματος Bitcoin (BTC) ως «λύτρα», σε διαφορετική περίπτωση καθίστανται απροσπέλαστα για το χρήστη τους.

    Επιπλέον, το συγκεκριμένο κακόβουλο λογισμικό έχει τη δυνατότητα να αυτοδιαδίδεται μέσω του τοπικού δικτύου και να κρυπτογραφεί τα αρχεία κάθε συστήματος στο οποίο αποκτά πρόσβαση. Η δυνατότητα αυτή το καθιστά εξαιρετικά επικίνδυνο σε εταιρικά δίκτυα όπου η διάδοση μπορεί να είναι ραγδαία.

    Σημειώνεται ότι το κακόβουλο λογισμικό κυκλοφορεί από τις 12-05-2017 και έχει μέχρι στιγμής μολύνει περισσότερους από 125.000 ηλεκτρονικούς υπολογιστές παγκοσμίως.

    Στο πλαίσιο αυτό, καλούνται οι χρήστες του διαδικτύου και οι διαχειριστές εταιρικών δικτύων να είναι ιδιαίτερα προσεκτικοί και να λαμβάνουν μέτρα ψηφιακής προστασίας και ασφάλειας για την αποφυγή προσβολής από το κακόβουλο λογισμικό, καθώς και να μην πληρώνουν τα χρήματα που ζητούνται, προκειμένου να αποθαρρύνονται τέτοιες παράνομες πρακτικές και να αποτρέπεται η περαιτέρω εξάπλωση του φαινομένου.

    Συγκεκριμένα:

    • Οι χρήστες που λαμβάνουν μηνύματα ηλεκτρονικού ταχυδρομείου από άγνωστους αποστολείς ή άγνωστη προέλευση, καλούνται να μην ανοίγουν τους συνδέσμους (links) και να μην κατεβάζουν τα συνημμένα αρχεία, που περιέχονται σε αυτά, για τα οποία δεν γνωρίζουν με βεβαιότητα τον αποστολέα και το περιεχόμενο του συνημμένου αρχείου.
    •  
    • Επιπλέον, οι χρήστες πρέπει να είναι εξαιρετικά καχύποπτοι στα μηνύματα ηλεκτρονικού ταχυδρομείου που ως αποστολέας φαίνεται να είναι κάποια υπηρεσία ή εταιρεία η οποία δεν είναι γνωστή σε αυτούς.
    •  
    • Συστήνεται να πληκτρολογούνται οι διευθύνσεις των ιστοσελίδων (URL) στον φυλλομετρητή ιστοσελίδων (browser), αντί να χρησιμοποιούνται υπερσύνδεσμοι (links).
    •  
    • Να χρησιμοποιούνται γνήσια λογισμικά προγράμματα και να ενημερώνονται τακτικά (updates), ενώ θα πρέπει να υπάρχει πάντα ενημερωμένο
    • πρόγραμμα προστασίας από ιούς του Η/Υ.
    •  
    • Να ελέγχουν και να έχουν πάντοτε ενημερωμένη την έκδοση του λειτουργικού τους συστήματος.
    •  
    • Να δημιουργούνται αντίγραφα ασφαλείας των αρχείων (backup) σε τακτά χρονικά διαστήματα, σε εξωτερικό μέσο αποθήκευσης και να διατηρούνται εκτός δικτύου, έτσι ώστε σε περίπτωση «προσβολής» από το κακόβουλο λογισμικό, να είναι δυνατή η αποκατάστασή τους.
    •  
    • Στους διαχειριστές εταιρικών δικτύων συστήνεται ιδιαίτερη προσοχή στην τακτική και ασφαλή τήρηση αντιγράφων ασφαλείας, καθότι τα αντίγραφα αποτελούν το μόνο τρόπο επαναφοράς των αρχείων στο σύνολό τους.
    •  
    • Να απενεργοποιήσουν την εκτέλεση μακροεντολών και JavaScript στις εφαρμογές με τις οποίες ανοίγουν αρχεία τύπου .docx και .pdf.

    Σημειώνεται ότι για περιστατικά μολύνσεων από κακόβουλο λογισμικό τύπου Crypto-Malware, η EUROPOL και το European Cybercrime Centre (EC3) έχουν θέσει σε λειτουργία τον ιστότοπο https://www.nomoreransom.org, όπου οι πολίτες μπορούν να βρουν συμβουλές προστασίας, αλλά και κλειδιά αποκρυπτογράφησης για ορισμένες μορφές κακόβουλου λογισμικού.

              Why Everybody Cares About The Blockchain   
    The blockchain is a key part of the system that underlies recordkeeping and transactions for Bitcoin, the virtual currency. But there are much bigger opportunities ahead for this decentralized recordkeeping system. In a session called “Why Everybody Cares About the Blockchain” at the inaugural Techonomy Policy conference earlier this month, panelists emphasized repeatedly that the database holds tremendous promise for an array of uses in banking, conflict tracking, and voting, among other things. It was a wide-ranging discussion, reflecting the vast possibilities proponents see for this contemporary technology. "Wouldn’t it be awesome if we had one universal ledger that we could use for everything and that was accessible to everybody?" said Jerry Brito, executive director of Coin Center. "Well, that is what the blockchain is. It’s a decentralized and open ledger."

    Did you know a tenth of HSBC’s workforce is in compliance? Or that the average corporate fine from the U.K.'s financial industry regulator increased nearly seven-fold from 2010 to 2013? Meanwhile, similar trends are being seen in the U.S. and around the world. The regulatory clampdown is happening at the same time that technology is transforming our world. Just this month, New York State’s top financial regulator granted the first license to a Bitcoin exchange, giving it bank-like status. This is technology literally throwing down the gauntlet to our monetary system. Social media is another case in point.

              A new ransomware is sweeping the globe, but there's a vaccine    

    It's a familiar story: You boot up your computer only to find a mysterious message saying your files are encrypted.

    You soon realise that your data is likely gone for good - even if you fork over a cryptocurrency ransom payment.

    But this time around, as a new and virulent form of ransomware dubbed NotPetya sweeps the globe, it doesn't have to be this way.

    Because this time around, there's a vaccine.

    What is NotPetya?

    The first symptoms of the attack appeared on June 27 in Ukraine, with the National Bank of Ukraine and the Kiev International Airport both hit hard.

    Even Chernobyl's radiation monitoring system has reportedly been affected. But NotPetya, which targets the Windows operating system, didn't stay there.

    Microsoft has confirmed that computers in 64 additional countries have been infected.

    The ransomware, so called because it demands a payment from users in exchange for decrypting their files, appears to use some code from an earlier ransomware known as Petya.

    However, this latest version looks to have been souped up with the allegedly stolen NSA exploit EternalBlue - the same exploit that drove the spread of WannaCry - and as such has security researchers calling it "NotPetya."

    According to the security firm Symantec, NotPetya is particularly nasty because instead of just encrypting a system's files, it actually modifies a computer's master boot record in order to encrypt its hard disk.

    Once a system is infected, a message is displayed demanding US$300 (S$415) worth of Bitcoin in exchange for a decryption key.

    However, as the listed email address for confirming that the ransom has been paid has been shut down by the email provider, there is little-to-no chance a decryption key will be provided even if a victim pays.

    Essentially, those hit by NotPetya can kiss their data goodbye.

              'Petya' ransomware: All you need to know about the cyberattack and how to tell if you're at risk   

    The global ransomware attack that hit major corporations from shipping giant Maersk to the world's biggest advertiser WPP, has affected over 12,000 machines, with companies and security researchers scrambling to find a fix.

    Ransomware is a malicious piece of software that locks files on a computer and demands payments to unlock them.

    The files on the computers are not accessible and are therefore useless.

    What is 'Petya' ransomware?

    The current attack appears to be carried out by a variant of malware known as Petya. It's a particular variation of Petya that some researchers have said they are seeing for the first time.

    One security source, who preferred to remain anonymous because the investigation is in its early stages, told CNBC that many anti-virus programs didn't recognise it and were unable to stop it.

    How does it work?

    The ransomware locks the computer's master boot record which is key for the machine to locate where the operating system and files are. Locking this makes the computer more or less unusable.

    It attacks networks through exploiting a security flaw in Microsoft's Windows operating system that was originally used by the National Security Agency (NSA) which was then leaked earlier this year.

    The vulnerability, known as EternalBlue, was leaked online earlier this year, and is being used by hackers. It is the same security flaw that the WannaCry attack earlier this year - which hit hundreds of thousands of users - was based on.

    Another way this virus spreads is by getting the logins and passwords of users on a network, which allows it to spread and install on other machines.

    Once the computer is infected, a message appears demanding $300 worth of bitcoin to unlock the encrypted files.

    Where did it start?

    Security researchers and Ukraine's cyber police are pointing fingers at MeDoc, a third-party accounting software product, used by many industries in Ukraine including financial institutions.

    MeDoc pushed out an update which was then compromised by hackers. When this was installed, computer networks got this malware.

    In a post on Facebook, MeDoc denied the accusations and said this is "clearly erroneous".

    Who has been hit?

    Microsoft estimates over 12,000 machines have been hit by the cyberattack.

    According to security firm McAfee, the malware has spread across the US, large parts of Europe, South America, and big countries in Asia too.

    Major corporations have also been affected including WPP, Maersk, Russian oil giant Rosneft, and public and private institutions in Ukraine. Some of those businesses responded on Wednesday.

    WPP said that it has taken steps to contain the attack with the priority now to return to normal operations. Many of the businesses under the WPP brand were affected but they are "experiencing no or minimal disruption."

    Maersk said that IT systems were down across multiple sites and some business units, but the issues have been contained. It is now working on a "technical recovery plan". The impact on the business is still being assessed.

    Russia, which was one of the countries hit, said the cyberattack caused no serious problems at either a state or corporate level in the country.

    Who did it?

    Attribution is always difficult with cyberattacks and as of yet, no security researchers have found a culprit. This is likely to come over the next few days.

    Are you at risk?

    So far, major businesses have been attacked. You will know if you have been infected as a screen will appear demanding payment of $300 in bitcoin to unlock the file.

    Researchers have warned against paying the ransom because the email now associated with the hackers has been decommissioned, meaning even if you pay, there is no way to contact the criminals.

    If your organisation is running a vulnerable version of Windows that hasn't patched (updated with the latest fix) then your business could be at risk.

    How to protect yourself?

    Authorities in the US and UK have issued guidelines in the past about how to protect against ransomware.

    Individuals and small businesses should:

    • Run Windows Update to get the latest software updates.
    • Make sure any anti-virus product is up to date and scan your computer for any malicious programs. It's also worth setting up regular auto-scans.
    • Back up important data on your computer so it can be recovered if it's held for ransom.

    Large organisations should:

    • Apply the latest Microsoft security patches for this particular flaw.
    • Back up key data.
    • Scan all outgoing and incoming emails for malicious attachments.
    • Ensure anti-virus programs are up to date and conducting regular scans.
    • Make sure to run "penetration tests" against your network's security, no less than once a year, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

              Major Flaw Found in WannaCry Raises Questions on Whether it was Really a Ransomware   

    WannaCry's Decryptor interface – Image shows WannaCry providing two methods of communication with the attackers: the “Contact Us” link and the “Check Payment” button on the main decryptor interface (Source: McAfee)

    An extensive analysis of WannaCry seems to indicate attackers would be unable to determine which users have paid the ransom and they cannot decrypt on a per-user basis. In other words, those behind the campaign would not (or could not) decrypt victims’ data once they received payment. The research team from McAfee that conducted the analysis finds the flaw to be somewhat puzzling given the WannaCry campaign's incredibly effective propagation techniques, reasonable key and data management, and a working anonymous communication fabric with Bitcoin payments.

    Odd negligence: "The WannaCry authors demonstrated good technical governance, for example, the key handling, buffer sanitization, and private key security on disk using a strongly encrypted format. It is odd that with such good governance, the same group neglected to include something as essential as a unique ID for a user (or instance of attack) because this is mandatory to decrypt a specific user’s files. While much of the initial analysis described the WannaCry campaign as 'shoddy,' the use of good technical governance suggests that there are elements of this campaign that are well implemented."

    Shoddy campaign: "This competence raises doubts that the campaign was shoddy. Given the level of capability demonstrated, we would expect the developers would have found and fixed basic errors. Indeed, could the inclusion of these basic errors be an attempt to make the campaign appear amateur? Without apprehending those behind the campaign, it is impossible to know their motivation; yet a thorough analysis of the technical artefacts questions the shoddy theory."


              WannaCry Ransomware Cyberattack Spreading to Countries Across the World, 45K Attacks Reported So Far   

    Security researchers are reporting a massive attack today, dubbed "WannaCry", which has reached 45,000 attacks in 74 countries around the world so far, mostly in Russia. Kaspersky Lab's Global Research & Analysis reports that the attack is initiated through an SMBv2 remote code execution in Microsoft Windows. "This exploit (codenamed 'EternalBlue') has been made available on the internet through the Shadowbrokers dump on April 14th, 2017 and patched by Microsoft on March 14. Unfortunately, it appears that many organizations have not yet installed the patch. ... while unpatched Windows computers exposing their SMB services can be remotely attacked with the 'EternalBlue' exploit and infected by the WannaCry ransomware, the lack of existence of this vulnerability doesn't really prevent the ransomware component from working."

    "A few hours ago, Spain's Computer Emergency Response Team CCN-CERT, posted an alert on their site about a massive ransomware attack affecting several Spanish organizations. The alert recommends the installation of updates in the Microsoft March 2017 Security Bulletin as a means of stopping the spread of the attack." –Kaspersky Lab

    "The National Health Service (NHS) in the U.K. also issued an alert and confirmed infections at 16 medical institutions. We have confirmed additional infections in several additional countries, including Russia, Ukraine, and India." –Kaspersky Lab

    "The malware used in the attacks encrypts the files and also drops and executes a decryptor tool. The request for $600 in Bitcoin is displayed along with the wallet. It’s interesting that the initial request in this sample is for $600 USD, as the first five payments to that wallet is approximately $300 USD. It suggests that the group is increasing the ransom demands." –Kaspersky Lab

    "The malware was made available online on 14 April through a dump by a group called Shadow Brokers, which claimed last year to have stolen a cache of “cyber weapons” from the National Security Agency (NSA). At the time, there was skepticism about whether the group was exaggerating the scale of its hack." –The Guardian

    Trump ordered emergency meeting: Reuters reports that U.S. homeland security adviser was ordered by President Trump, to hold an emergency meeting Friday night "to assess the threat posed by a global computer ransomware attack in at least 150 countries."

    Update, Monday, May 15 from BBC / Microsoft warns ransomware cyberattack is a wake-up call: "It blamed governments for storing data on software vulnerabilities which could then be accessed by hackers. It says the latest virus exploits a flaw in Microsoft Windows identified by, and stolen from, US intelligence."

    Clues point to North Korean Nicole Perlroth and David Sanger report in the New York Times / May 15:  " Intelligence officials and private security experts say that new digital clues point to North Korean-linked hackers as likely suspects in the sweeping ransomware attacks that have crippled computer systems around the world."
