Gotta grab a coffee when you read through this story. And give yourself an opportunity to go to the washroom too! It's worth it!
 
Serious allegation from Brian Krebs.

They don't come much more respected than Brian Krebs. As such, when he alleges he can identify the author of the Mirai botnet, it is serious stuff.

In this lengthy piece he shows how he discovered the identity of the author.

I couldn't pass this deal up! I've already seen the Ip Man triology before, but heck, I had Google Play credits and my 50% of any one movie was expiring.

Call me Chea-IP Man!

Oooh, and I live in the same city as this "427" Cobra! So if I see one but don't hear it, I know it's this Tesla Powered, Kia charged Shelby Cobra!

+Eric Mewhort​ in a roll over. In any case the cage destroys the look of a classic making it look like the mutant offspring of a Cobra and a sprint car. For just cruising around on nice days I'd take my chances with a roll hoop.

I've installed malware due to my "twitch" reflex being faster than my mental ability to consider if the link is legitimate or not. I'm not surprised if other tech and security-aware people fall for this one too.

Enable two factor authentication and at least it'll provide some extra level of protection. If you fall for this phishing page, they may have your login credentials, but they won't get the randomized security code that is needed for them to access your account. It isn't impossible to bypass this, but at least it'll provide some level of protection for you.
 
Warning: New Gmail phishing attack could be easy to fall for

Users beware, a new Gmail phishing attack could be very easy to fall for, even tech-savvy users are being fooled by the attack.

With the upcoming provincial election here in BC, the news about Premier Christy Clark's "top-up", political donations and the hot-button topic of public education here in BC it makes you consider all the things at play. #FreshGrade is a very useful assessment tool and it is made in BC to boot! HOWEVER things kind of get fishy and gray when the creator of Freshgrade donates a 6-figure amount to the BC Liberals and the BC Liberals have been touting this tool as the next best thing since sliced bread in education.

I've been searching for the donation records on BC Elections website but no such luck the past few days. Seems like no donation records after January 2016 are on their site!

At least the BC Liberals have a public record of all their donors for this past year and current year.

http://www.bcliberals.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/2016-Contributions.pdf

In here, you can see Lane Merrifield's $100,000 donation to the BC Liberals on page 179. He's the CEO and founder.

I'm not going to tell my kids this. I need them to take care of their responsibilities and chores first, otherwise the entire family will get sucked into watching #Voltron!
 
Netflix Original, "Voltron" starts this Friday!

Sounds like the perfect show for kids! Kids of all ages, that is.

In this all-new Voltron series coming to Netflix this year, five unsuspecting teenagers are transported from Earth into the middle of a sprawling intergalactic war and become pilots for five robotic lions in the battle to protect the universe from evil. Only through the true power of teamwork can they unite to form the mighty warrior known as VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER.

The series will be available to Netflix members in the U.S., Canada, Latin America, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, the Nordics, Benelux, France and DACH beginning June 10.

Here is a direct link to check it out:

I actually watched the first episode because I have heard references to Voltron in the context of a game I play. I don't plan to watch any more of it. Maybe I would be more interested when I was much younger.

It's a big mall. Free WiFi, lots of parking. Keep in mind the various parking lots are not connected together, especially the underground parking. Access via public transit is convenient too as a major bus loop and Skytrain stop is right at the mall.
