GoGo inflight is now reportedly decrypting and selling all of your data. Ugh
SSL certificates exist to increase security and prevent snooping on your browsing sessions. Gogo believes you shouldn't have that and appears to be intentionally performing MITM attacks on its users.

Here are some zombie short flix for October. Grindhouse style.
Frequently, films set amidst the zombie apocalypse focus on the horror and desperation of the survivors' situation. But this series of gory short films takes a grindhouse-style approach, focusing on all the gruesome ways you can take those zombies out.

Oh Onion. Always on point.

Avoid swaggering or any other confident behavior that suggests you are not completely subjugated.
With riots raging in Ferguson, Missouri following the shooting death by police of an unarmed African-American youth, the nation has turned its eyes toward police brutality, social injustice, and the continuing crisis of race relations throughout the U.S.

+charlie wallace This book was originally done just for my intro to car hacking classes but the response has been overwhelming.  So I've already started to compile more chapters for 2015 including performance tuning.  I have one author willing to contribute to that area and I will send you a private message to see if you would like to as well.

Also +Oliver Hartkopp I have a note to include detailed SocketCAN stuff as well.  Would you be interested?  I'll send you a private message with details as well.

I disagree. I understand the emissions concern and I understand emission testing. Emission restrictions are not a reason you shouldn't own your vehicle. You can be compliant with the right to modify. You will void your warranty but that's understandable.

Nope, general vulnerabilities in the standards, interfaces, deployments and dependencies. Although webinizing a few of them might be fun <insert dr evil laugh here>.
