Love that the first thing which happens when I setup my new router is flashing an open firmware update on it :) next is off course the random root password.

+Hak5 I have a question for the Hak5 team regarding the RCS Agent. What steps can I take to secure any recently acquired computer from this particular threat? Even if I purchase the machine brand new from the manufacturer, there will always be that tiny scintilla of doubt as to whether or not it could be infected. A used or refurbished machine would be downright untrustworthy.


As a standard practice I always boot n' nuke any new computer to DoD standards. Once thoroughly wiped to ensure nothing unpleasant is hiding anywhere on the drive, I install my OS from scratch. If I understand what you are saying correctly, this wouldn't be enough to protect my data? Setting a BIOS password is great but would only make sense in cases where I was 100% sure the BIOS is uncompromised. How would I even make such a determination?


What to do???

+Andrey Volk I understand your frustration, Adobe should license Flash as Free Software or get their act together.

As for HTML5 codec support that will come in time when users start demanding the support from Mozilla, Google etc.

+Hak5 The DNA-infused ones could be sold for more or auctioned off for charity? :P

Lately, I've been getting the feeling that the Internet is reverting back to some kind of digital Wild West where guns are replaced with very big brains.
