Is Virtual Reality dead?

Collateral Advancement

Virtual reality environments, including industrial testing, gaming, situational role playing, and social, has seen a lot of activity lately. The main push has been in industrial application requirements which has spurred development of the hardware and software needed to create viable virtual reality.  As in most other developments and technological advancements, it is the needs of a specific development area that branches into the expansion of new advancements in other technologies.

Is anyone paying attention?

The general theme of recent computer hacks are, unfortunately, all too familiar. Not updating software when there is a clear path to doing so and there is a well-known and publicly documented exploit of that software is negligent and the companies involved should be held liable for damage to client's financial concerns.

Another reason NOT to click

It is a long standing statement of fact that the general internet public is a click happy bunch of folks with little concern or thought for what might be real or not. Currently, coinciding with the cascading avalanche of information on the disaster of Flight MH17, there is an influx of malware, false stories, and spam, permeating the internet.

Beware of what you click on and don't be duped by bold and sensational headlines promising onsite footage or other such nonsense. It is a shame that people exploit tragedies such as this one but it is not surprising.

TowelRoot and Futex

One of the newest exploits to hit takes advantage of a code issue on certain Linux flavored OS's and has a deep reach from server based systems to other devices that operate using the affected versions including certain Android-based devices on the market. This includes the Samsung Galaxy S5, said Ohad Bobrov, vice president of research and development with Lacoon Mobile Security.

Geo-targeted IP and DDoS

Geo-targeting

Geo-targeting an IP address is a simple process that includes obtaining the IP address of an incoming connection and running a quick code check that returns where the IP originated geographically. This technique is widely used for targeted ADs, server traffic analysis, content presentation, and other geographic based information gathering. The process becomes complicated when dealing with spoofed IP addresses. A spoofed IP is one that does not contain accurate IP address information. While it is possible to spoof an IP, there are tools that can look deeper and determine the true source of an IP packet that include Network Ingress/Regress Filtering, Reverse Path Forwarding, reverse tunnels for mobile connections, and other methods.

The Memphis Grizzlies are no longer the best franchise in sports, but they’re still in the top 5. According to ESPN’s latest Ultimate Standings, the Grizzlies were once again knocked off by the San Antonio Spurs, who took over the top spot. The Grizzlies are still the number one team in all of sports as far as ticket, parking and concession costs are concerned, but the Spurs have taken over the top spot, most likely aided by their dismantling (figuratively, and possibly literally) of the Miami…
