Given the large number of scams and thefts involving cryptocurrency and other DeFi projects, many of those groups are working on ways to reverse or limit the damage from theft and scams. However, it's not easy, he said.
It's not easy, as that is the entire point of the whole damn thing.
Some of these thieves offer discounted ransoms to corporations to encourage them to pay sooner, with the demanded payment getting larger the longer it takes to cough up the cash (or Bitcoin, as the case may be).
Bitcoin (or other crypto currency) in every case - if they could only accept payment in cash or via the banking system, their economic model would disappear over night. Cash requires presence in the country of the victim, and while there are ways to make money vanish in the banking system, it is very much harder to do, particularly if your country is cut off from the electronic payment systems.
If they enforced that one, Musk would have been out years ago - smoking spliffs in interviews, calling rescuers paedos, and many many more examples of bringing every company he is associated with in to disrepute.
LEDs when used as a 1:1 replacement for filament bulbs saves lots of energy. However in new homes or refurbishments multiple LEDs now are used, our kitchen/family room has 14 6W downlighters where as previously one filament and a florescent would have been used. There is also far more outside lighting now LEDs are cheap leading to an increase in light pollution.
Please don't continue to develop Swype. The first version I used on my Galaxy S was fantastic, it seemed to know what I was typing before I did. The next few updates were cosmetic and made it look great with themes etc. However, at a certain point the prediction started getting worse and worse with each upgrade, I was actually glad when they abandoned it, as it hasn't degraded any further. Despite all that it is still better than any of the alternatives I've tried.
IT is as far away from being a proper profession as a Taxi driver is away from an airline pilot.
A Taxi driver passes their driving test once at the beginning of career, and can drive any car they like until retirement. The consequences of failures are normally minor, most accidents don't result in any long term consequences for either driver of vehicle, except for slightly higher insurance, which does nothing to raise standards.
Airline pilots on the other hand have to take a far more extensive qualification, and are re-tested every few years, they also need to become qualified on each new type of plane they fly. Failures are generally a lot more serious and call in to question both the competency of the pilot and the design of the aircraft, lessons are learned.
We can either put up with cheap low quality software on unreliable operating systems keep driving us in to a ditch, or pay more for professional quality engineering of applications and operating systems. Unfortunately, I think we all know which one will win out.
The malware also can monitor keyboard and mouse activity to determine if the system is being used and also monitors running processes, checking for analyst and troubleshooting tools, the researchers wrote. If it appears the host system – and some of the troubleshooting tools – are not being used, the malware will crank up the XMRig cryptocurrency miner.
Windows on its own will often start using 100% CPU and spin up the machines fans to maximum, strangely it always stops a few seconds after opening Task Manager.
Is that all you've got?
Liam has gone to the trouble of writing an article specifically for you to vent your spleen about too many Linux distro's and you've only got one comment about Windows? Where are the other 30 posts of frothing from the mouth diatribe against choice and duplication of effort? Are you ill? Have the Rubles run out?
I use the Logiops github.com/PixlOne/logiops software to customise the MX Master 3 mouse buttons. I've got the horizontal scroll wheel set up to zoom the current window, and the bottton thumb button combined with left and right to ctrl+tab or shift+ctrl+tab, up alternates between the vertical scroll wheel normal and super scroll modes, and down cycles around 3 different dpi sensitivity settings.
