Tesla is the Latest Firm to Fall to Botnet Hijacking


Tesla’s cloud systems were hijacked to mine an undisclosed cryptocurrency.

The hackers got in through Tesla’s Kubernetes administration console (a google-designed system to optimized cloud applications), which was not password protected. Tesla swiftly remedied the issue when it was notified by Redlock, a cybersecurity firm. The cybersecurity firm went on to explain that this attack was more sophisticated than previous attacks they have seen. Tesla explained that they “maintain a bug bounty program” to help prevent against these kind of attacks and that the attack appears to be “limited to internally-used engineering test cars” and found “no indication that customer privacy or vehicle safety or security was compromised in any way”.

Botnet Hijacking, the act of using many hijacked computes on a network to perform DDoS attacks, steal data, spamming, and otherwise gain access to another’s computer device, has been on the rise in the crypto world. The increase of cryptocurrencies’ prices and the prevalence of privacy coins has raised the incentives for bad actors to hack and maliciously mine crypto on someone else’s computer. Only a few weeks ago was it revealed that thousands of UK government websites were hijacked to mine crypto. This past February it was also discovered that over 500,000 windows servers were infected since May 2017. These hijackings can even occur just by visiting a website.

Ben Swann Highlights Censorship-Resistant Media Empowered by Dash


Ben Swann has taken to various media outlets, making a strong case for why Dash enables journalists to resist censorship.

The host of the Reality Check investigative news segment and owner the the Truth in Media project recently became funded entirely by Dash following a year off-air. This was due to his previous employer, CBS 46 Atlanta, shutting down his segment due to the more controversial nature of the hard-hitting investigations that were the hallmark of his show. Swann then sought independent funding, prompting him to submit a proposal to the Dash treasury for exclusive funding, which passed by a wide margin.

Since rebooting his project, Swann has taken to a variety of media outlets and networks to talk about his return, and, in particular, how Dash has enabled him to defeat censorship, in particular on a recent segment of RT News:

IMPORTANT UPDATE
.....

kick iCEBREAKER?
any day
(the mods here are totally n00bs and crazy - good luck dealing with that ; )

I disagree - the moderator is corrupt and has likely taken coin from iCE / been bought off years ago - that's why iCE's trust level is not visible either
This forum is badgered by iCE every day, spreading FUD and the corrupt moderator turns a blind eye



Who cares about this loser anyway.  It's had no effect on our growth and adoption and frankly pretty pathetic.  We'll keep him in our sand box.   Certainly it's now proven he's invested in DASH...and couple of us are zeroing in on where he is... Wink

It's also  come to my attention that he is also a Masternode owner.  This is revealing... There is a connection here that. We are trying to get to the bottom of... And we'll keep digging.

Remember Icey... Money can buy information and the corrupt can be bought!  Kiss

Alt36 - Ken Ramirez (Dash budget proposal owner) on The Crypto Show

https://letstalkbitcoin.com/blog/post/the-crypto-show-ken-ramirez-of-alt36-a-pos-for-the-cannabis-industry

Quote
Alt36 about their new product that will bring a General Bytes ATM and point of sale for Dash in to Cannabis dispensaries.  Dispensaries have a serious problem of less than desirable access to traditional banking. Dash and Alt36 aim to solve that problem with digital currency.

Ken Ramirez if you're reading this...and I hope you are...you gotta be smart here. You need to stop making public statements. You need to stop agreeing to speak to the media. (Although it's a bit late for both of these things) You need to get a lawyer that understands federal cannabis laws, money transmission, and cases involving technology.

I'm not sure you're ready for the truth, but here's the truth...and it sucks:

Marijuana is legal in California, but it's still illegal under federal law, so you can get charged with a federal crime for using marijuana even in a state where it's legal.

You're going to spend about 6 months - 18 months in a federal prison. Go download the Federal Sentencing Guidelines manual and look up the guidelines under the sections for financial and drug crimes. Then look at the table. (Yes, judges can depart from the guidelines...but they rarely do.) 90%+ of federal cases wind up with the accused going to jail. This is the federal system. Not many people just get probation in the federal system.

What does this mean?  First you say "who cares about this loser" and then brag about how you are stalking and doxing me?  That doesn't make sense.

Please stay on topic, which is Dash, and stop breaking the forum rules (not to mention federal/state laws) against stalking and doxing (and buying private information from "the corrupt").

You obviously have a lot of big fat assets to lose should anything bad happen to me as a result of your "zeroing in" on my location.  I don't want your HYIP Masternodes (too much liability for money laundering and unregistered money services) but will be coming for the Misconduct winery/vineyard/restaurant if you give me a good reason.

Though Canada has no specific law criminalizing doxing, our existing laws fill this void just fine when you think about what the act entails.

People post home addresses, phone numbers, credit card information, and private email addresses with the intent that someone other than them will see it and steal, harass, and threaten death, rape, or worse.

Fortunately, in Canada we have section twenty two of the Criminal Code which says that anyone who counsels someone to commit an offense is considered party to said offense. That means that if you encourage someone to commit a crime, you are considered as guilty of the crime as the person who actually did it even if they did it in a way other than the one you recommended. That also means that you are subject to the exact same penalties.

Let’s say you post a woman’s home address on social media and say that she should be raped. That night someone sees your post and goes and rapes her. If the rapist convinces the authorities that they got the idea from your social media feed, you might be charged with rape and face the same five or fourteen year prison sentence (depending on the degree of violence involved) as the rapist.

If you post a person’s private email address and phone number and encourage your followers to make death threats, rape threats, or threats of bodily harm, and they do it, you’ll be looking at the same eighteen months to five years as the people making the threats.

In order to get the same penalty, the prosecution would have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you actively and willfully sought to encourage people to commit the crime and that you knew or ought to have known that a crime was likely to be committed as a result of your encouragement.

There is such a thing as a public figure and such as thing as a private individual.

Pretending you don't understand the vast difference between those two categories to rationalize "posting home addresses, phone numbers, credit card information, and private email addresses with the intent that someone other than [you] will see it and steal, harass, and threaten death, rape, or worse" isn't going to stand up in court.

If I get so much as a single hostile phone call or email, I will retain the best attorneys in BC and we shall set about methodically confiscating every bit of wealth you inherited, earned, instamine-scammed, etc.

Should you make it as far as my LinkedIn page, you will find the majority of my peer group are extremely high-powered lawyers, so you can't really be shocked when we take everything you own in (partial) settlement for your stalking/doxing offenses.

Now, shall we get back on topic and discuss Dash's shady scumbag instamine/centralization/spamvertising, or do you want to insist on persisting in making the issue personal and accruing additional liability?

The choice is up to you, my precious portly cupcake, but I highly recommend picking the former option.

Aren't you curious why Alt36 stopped providing their customary monthly updates?  Don't you want to talk about Amanda's (hilarious) new quest to bring /r/cryptocurrency into the Dash cargo cult?  Is Dash Evolution's two year tardiness too sensitive of a topic for you to broach?

RocketPay Brings Dash to Southeast Asia


RocketPay, which started out as a Dash Treasury proposal, is on the verge of helping more individuals and business in Southeast Asia adopt Dash.

Their goal is to create a Dash payment processor, Dash exchange, and Dash point-of-sale system in addition to spreading awareness of Dash through many channels. Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia are just some of the countries in the area that are quickly growing in population and wealth and ready for technological and consumer change.

RocketPay plans to allow users to store their Dash in the e-Wallet, which will be equipped “with the most advanced security technology” as well as focus on user-friendliness. Affiliates in the RocketPay Affiliate Programme will advocate on the producer side to get more merchants to adopt the RocketPay Merchant Service. Many Southeast Asian business will now be able to access international markets that were previously inaccessible. RocketPay’s outlined business strategy earned them 390 Dash over a period of 3 months, of which 2 months have already passed.

Buddy ol pal...here is the problem,.  

I, unlike you, have no reason to hide my identity Mr IB.  I have nothing to fear because I try to be respectful in my conduct even if I disagree with people.  I travel the world promoting my region, our wines and the belief that this ecosystem of crypto currencies in general have the power to better our society.  I'm constantly aware that my actions matter...that those of my peers are in fact listening and certainly I do not go out of my way to incite hate and to body shame people and spread toxicity and more far more importantly engage in psychological abuse of an entire community.

And in there lies your dilemma, you have cultivated a legion of countless enemies in your abusive campaign of hate  in the false belief that this ecosystem provided you with anonymity.  You and no one else have created the predicament you face.  Certainly you weren't of the belief that you had some god given right to molest, harass and abuse a whole community for years with out some thought that eventually there would be a breaking point, did you?!?  

Did you not consider that in a ecosystem of cyber punks and those on our society's fringe, now empowered with new found millions of dollars wouldn't have the means to sniff you out?!?  For a man of your claimed intelligence...that's seems extremely careless.

 I'm sure the "high" powered lawyers you claim to know would certainly have advised you against engaging in abusive and personal attacks on individuals and whole communities and would have advised you that such behavior could result in unwanted consequences.

See IB,  I'm not the one you should be concerned about ...and I too have great legal counsel and understand that my words matter, maybe you should be more cognizant of that in your conduct.  

...you reap what you sow!

How Does the Lightning Network Stack Up Against Its Biggest Competitors?


Bitcoin has longtime and well-known scaling problems, with fees last year spiking to over $30 on average for a transaction and confirmations taking hours, sometimes days. The transaction load of the network topped out at around 400,000 per day, capped by the one megabyte block size. In order to scale past that level without increasing the block size, Bitcoin has looked to a new technology called the Lightning Network to scale the network off-chain past the limitations of purely on-chain capacity. Here we examine Lightning, and compare it to other payment-focused cryptocurrencies taking the on-chain scaling approach.

How It Works
The Lightning Network is a complicated second layer system that has been in development for years, so explaining it in comprehensive detail isn’t easy. Instead we can offer a simplified explanation. Lightning is an off-chain solution, meaning it doesn’t send actual coins, rather makes accounting changes on the second layer, which then gets settled on the main layer, avoiding the need to move actual funds thousands of times. It works by setting up a payment channel by sending funds into a multisignature address that has keys controlled by multiple parties. Transactions are made back and forth between two parties off-chain, and whatever the balance is when the channel is closed will be sent back to the users’ wallets in the appropriate amounts. This is how bi-directional (two-way) payment channels work.

Dash News Weekly Roundup – February 24, 2018


Ben Swann on the importance of decentralization in news media
Award-winning journalist Ben Swann appeared on RT News this week to talk about news media and independent journalism.
