It turns out that the $81 million that was lost by the Bangladesh central bank was the tip of the iceberg. SWIFT warns customers of multiple cyber fraud cases.

"Shane Shook, a banking security consultant who investigates large financial crime, said hackers were turning to SWIFT and other private financial messaging platforms because such attacks can generate more revenue than going after consumers or small businesses."

Here's the reason why hackers win - there's always some idiot who doesn't follow the basics. Bangladesh central bank loses $81 million by having no firewall around the computers that handle international transfers. #facepalm #technology #security

I haven't tried #Minecraft, but I've seen a lot of people who are obsessed with it. According to the +nytimes, now it's the modern day introduction to programming.

“Jordan built a variety of obstacles, including a deluge of water and walls that collapsed inward, Indiana Jones-style. But what he really wanted was a trap that behaved unpredictably. That would really throw his friends off guard. How to do it, though? He obsessed over the problem.

Then it hit him: the animals! Minecraft contains a menagerie of virtual creatures, some of which players can kill and eat (or tame, if they want pets). One, a red-and-white cowlike critter called a mooshroom, is known for moseying about aimlessly. Jordan realized he could harness the animal’s movement to produce randomness. He built a pen out of gray stones and installed “pressure plates” on the floor that triggered a trap inside the maze. He stuck the mooshroom inside, where it would totter on and off the plates in an irregular pattern.

Presto: Jordan had used the cow’s weird behavior to create, in effect, a random-­number generator inside Minecraft. It was an ingenious bit of problem-­solving, something most computer engineers I know would regard as a great hack — a way of coaxing a computer system to do something new and clever.” http://nyti.ms/23UDlIJ #technology

Good example of #disruptive #technology - traditional #pointofsale devices are being replaced by #iPads with apps. They're portable and come with a range of providers - rather than stores being locked into whichever provider made their point of sale terminal.
