    On November 25, a new chapter was added to the chronicles of data theft activity. A group calling itself GOP or The Guardians Of Peace, hacked their way into Sony Pictures, leaving the Sony network crippled for days, valuable insider information including previously unreleased films posted to the Internet, and vague allegations it all may have been done by North Korea in retribution for the imminent release of an upcoming movie titled “The Interview”.

    God this is hard. I\’ve been trying to get at a solution to this exact problem for a very long time as well. It needs to be there when I\’m walking down the street, sitting in a busy meeting, or at home in bed. A hybrid of mind-mapping, notes, and a document database. I\’d also like to be able to publish and organize documents for others to view.

    KARMA is a set of tools for assessing the security of wireless clients at multiple layers. Wireless sniffing tools discover clients and their preferred/trusted networks by passively listening for 802.11 Probe Request frames. From there, individual clients can be targeted by creating a Rogue AP for one of their probed networks (which they may join automatically) or using a custom driver that responds to probes and association requests for any SSID. Higher-level fake services can then capture credentials or exploit client-side vulnerabilities on the host.

    Jacob Appelbaum during The State of The Onion at 31c3 : “I actually talked to an American LE person who was involved in this and he told me from his perspective exactly how it happened. Apparently the Silk Road 2 guy wrote his name down somewhere. So, they brought him in and started asking him questions, and as soon as they started asking him questions he started naming names. They counted up to 16 names, and they went and arrested all those people and collected their computers, and then they put out a press release saying that they had an amazing tor attack.”

    I’ve been looking for simple ways to graph the data from a sensor attached to a microcontroller lately, because it’s such a necessary activity if you want to look at sensor data over time. Using Apples Grapher program, which comes with OSX, I found a simple way that involves only four lines of code on an Arduino or Wiring microcontroller.

    Lately I’ve been acting as the unofficial Git consultant for Skribit, usually in response to @Stammy saying something on Twitter along the lines of “Hey, git just did something totally nonintuitive and now I can’t figure out what to do next.” I’ve been using Git long enough to know the answer, usually, or at least to be able to figure it out, plus I still remember how people used to SVN think, which helps.

    The story of the 2009 war on piracy was best summarised by another pirate, who lived and died in the fourth century BC. He was captured and brought to Alexander the Great, who demanded to know “what he meant by keeping possession of the sea.” The pirate smiled, and responded: “What you mean by seizing the whole earth; but because I do it with a petty ship, I am called a robber, while you, who do it with a great fleet, are called emperor.”

    To me, this is the critical moment, when startups either accept that “process = bureaucracy” or reject that thinking to realize that “process = discipline.” And it’s here that hackers fall down the most. We’re just not naturally that good at thinking about systems of people; we’re more comfortable with systems of computers.
